Sport Physicals for CCHS and WHHS
Tuesday, Jun 1st, 2010
Hard to believe that this is a picture of physicals performed at WHHS recently for CCHS and WHHS athletes. Progress In Motion (P.I.M.), and White House Family Practice organized the event. Usually, there are lines and long waits for events like this, but not this night. 230 athletes were given a 30-40 minute physical, performed by Physical Therapist Assistants, Exercise Physiologists, Athletic Trainers, Nurse Practitioner Interns, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, and Physicians-with limited waits. The medical professionals donated their time, and donations were accepted as a fundraiser for each school’s medical fund. Many thanks to each person and organization for donating their time!!

Vertical Jump: Increased by 5” – Danielle
Broad Jump: Increased by 11” – Nikki
5-10-5 agility test: Decreased by .41 sec – Morgan D.
Great job to all the girls who participated!!

Top Five Treatment Mistakes - Sprains
Monday, Nov 22nd, 2010
5. “I used heat, why is it worse?” Ice is proven to decrease inflammation and thus pain. Heat actually increases blood flow to the injured area, making inflammation enhanced, so application of heat makes a sprain worse.
4. “When I was 21, I had an injury like this. I pushed through it, and it went away.” This “treatment” technique is unique to males, and to anyone under 25 years of age. Ever notice how the second injury, of the same body part a “few” years later hurts worse? Ignoring a sprain allows abnormal scarring, and produces abnormal joint functioning. That abnormal functioning produces higher risk of future joint injury. And, yes, the second injury is worse than the first. Bottom line? Get proper treatment early, and avoid a ...

P.I.M. Announces New Pulmonary Program
Wednesday, Dec 3rd, 2008
P.I.M. is thrilled to announce a new program for an underserved patient population in the White House area. The Pulmonary Rehab Program at P.I.M. launched in December 2008. The Pulmonary Rehab Program serves clients with the following conditions:
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
- Post-Pneumonia Debilitation
Each of these conditions causes difficulty with breathing, especially during physical exertion. Simple daily tasks, such as walking, reaching into cabinets, getting out of bed, and bathing become increasingly difficult due to decreased endurance, as result of the above disease processes. The Pulmonary Rehab Program will improve the tolerance to these daily tasks by:
- Increasing st...
You Are First!
Tuesday, Nov 11th, 2008
P.I.M. has been blessed to serve the White House and surrounding communities for the last six years. Since the beginning of P.I.M., we have been the only Independent, Servant-Centered Private Practice in the northern middle Tennessee area. While those words describe P.I.M., I know that many persons who are outside the healthcare arena may not put much stock in that description. After all, isn’t physical therapy the same everywhere? The answer is emphatically, “No!”
At P.I.M., the servant-centered approach puts patients first, both in action and word.
- You are first…not the large corporate therapy provider who says one on one treatment with a licensed therapist or licensed therapist assistant is not financially feasible.
Playing Hurt or Becoming Injured?
Tuesday, Sep 2nd, 2008
I once heard a coach say to his team, “You will have to play hurt. But, I do not want you to play if you are injured.” There is truth in those two statements, because as any athlete will tell you, from professional to the weekend warrior, sports participation can sometimes hurt. At certain stages of physical development, in hard practice sessions, or in the later moments of a long, hard fought game, joint and muscle pain can occur in every athlete. However, when does a hurt progress enough to be an injury? Has an athlete’s pain already become an injury, an injury that is worsening with continued participation? These questions are difficult to answer for a coach, parent, and athlete. To compound the problem, access to healthcare provider...
Sacro-Iliac Pain or Low Back Pain?
Friday, May 9th, 2008
Low Back Pain affects eight of ten Americans, causing debilitating pain and discomfort that negatively impacts all of our daily routine. Low back pain has many causes, and traditional medical testing has pointed the finger at discs, arthritis, and degeneration as leading causes of lower back pain. While each of these conditions can cause low back pain, some patients continue to have pain without a diagnostic finding of any of these problems. Unfortunately, medical professionals sometimes advise patients who have pain, and no diagnostic cause, that “ You have to live with it”, or “There is nothing else that I can do for you”.
At P.I.M., we know that low back pain can come from many different causes, and many different joints. The sacr...
