Reasons Due To Which Hand Pain Occurs

I have had surgery on my back for disc damage which provided lower back pain relief. The damage was basically caused by use and abuse. The whole process has turned me into a person like a reformed smoker! I know how simple it is (now!) to look after my back and the fine line that exists between avoiding surgery and needing surgery. For example, I very rarely bend over to pick up things off the ground I always squat – it has become a habit.

Whether you are going on a short sprint or a long distance plod it is essential that you give yourself time to stretch before and after your run. Stretching is one of the most important things you can do after a warm-up to protect your body from injury, as well as easing muscle soreness.

Headaches that are caused by a musculoskeletal problem, i.e. the ligaments, muscles or soft tissues, typically are aggravated by having the neck and neck positioned in prolonged “bad” positions. This is usually sitting in a slouched position whereby the head is held in a protruded position. This puts a lot of pressure on the soft tissues at the back of the head or upper part of the neck and can lead to pain.

A biomechanics expert or experienced shoe retailer will carry out a gait analysis to measure the natural inward roll of your feet. By knowing your ‘pronation’, you can pick a shoe that will protect you from foot and leg discomfort. And you can also pick a pair in a cute colour!

Poor posture is when your joints (shoulders, spine, hips, knees and ankles) do not align properly. The improper alignment causes some muscles to work harder than the others and become tense while the other muscles weaken. This muscular imbalance slowly creates a poor posture in you, restricts the joint movements and places greater pressure on your joints.

I believe I was very fortunate with the rehabilitation I had and the great massage cape town southern suburbs who looked after me. At the time I misunderstood the value of light resistive exercise and the importance of isolating muscle blocks to provide lower back pain relief. The exercise I will show you is very simple indeed but not easy to do – it is very specific. This is because it involves flexing the little known Traversus abdominus muscles that are deep muscles. In contrast to the well known Rectus abdominus muscles or “the Six Pack” or “Washboard Abs” that are surface muscles.

When I am working I ask my patients do they do Pilates. I have heard so many say they tried, it but it did not do them any good. These are the classes that are not teaching their pupils about Pilates they are only giving follow the leader classes. Horse Riders are in this category, you need to learn Pilates and apply it to your riding not just follow a leader doing exercises.

If you pronate, but are not experiencing any symptoms, you may want to use over the counter orthotic insoles to control your pronation. Most over the counter foot orthotics are too soft to control movement and will allow pronation to occur, but there are some that are firm enough to help stop you from pronating. They may be very beneficial in preventing future problems caused by overpronation.
