Choose to Be Healthy Rather Than Skinny

Move over size zero or skinny, the new anthem: healthy is the new skinny. No, healthy does not imply overweight and obese. Healthy is when you feel good inside out while maintaining the curves in your body. Although many strive to look like super models skinny or slim, remember beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. You should rather challenge yourself to be healthy rather than being skinny. Being on the healthier side, not only applies to your physical well-being but also your mental health. Everyone wants to embrace a healthy lifestyle but here we are not talking about people who are genetically skinny.

Here are some of the facts if you plan to get skinny on the lettuce and soft drink diet:

1. Be practical

In the real world, a skinny body cannot be an option for everyone. Remember, everyone is gifted with a different body and shape. You will notice that some are blessed with more curves looking voluptuous while the others not so much. No amount of new found diets can change the shape of your body. Just like it is not possible to turn a square into a triangle. If you were born to have those curves, you need to embrace it with confidence as nothing you do will make them go away.

2. Slim and skinny doesn't imply healthy

The well-known models on the runway can make any woman envious. They are slim and you shouldn't be surprised to know that they are extremely fit and healthy. Yes, that's because they devote time to eating right, working out religiously, and getting enough rest and sleep. Although plenty of girls are genetically skinny, some are skinny because of poor eating habits as they only focus on the external appearance. This kind of lifestyle is likely to make you fall sick, making you prone to heart diseases, stroke, and other health conditions just like someone obese. Do you really want this for yourself?

3. Ditch the weighing machine

Yes, if you are striving to get skinny you are probably someone who has an obsession with the weighing machine. But the real measure of health and well-being does not come from those scales. To remain healthy, your weight has very little to do with your overall fitness. Instead, it is your doctor who can actually give you a proper health diagnosis. To be on the right track, use these results to fuel your self-improvement and you will not be disappointed. Do not focus on getting skinny, instead focus on increasing your muscle mass and lowering body fat.

4. Skinny does always mean lean muscle mass

This is a general misconception about skinny people. It is not necessary that anyone who is slim and skinny possess good muscle mass. Fad diets may help you lose weight, but these diets do nothing for your muscles, on the contrary you lose muscle tone. A person who is skinny only by restricting her diet and who does not workout religiously lacks major muscle mass.

5. Be confident and embrace your body shape

In the end, what is more important is how you feel than how you look. You may be following a restricted diet to get skinny but do you feel good? Do you always feel weak and low on energy? If the answer is, yes then its time you re-evaluate your lifestyle and incorporate a healthy lifestyle. Not only your body but your mind will also be grateful that you did so.

Remember, being healthy starts from the inside and gradually you will start noticing the positive effects on yo
To create the perfect medical waiting rooms you will need to balance the space available with what your patients will need. You will need to make sure that your waiting room is comfortable but yet functional. Everything from the color of the walls to the decorations to the furniture will contribute to the overall feeling of the area. This is the room where new patients get the first impression of the practice. It is an area where they will enter into the office, wait to see the physician, pick up, or take a family member or friend, pay their bills, etc. Basically the idea medical waiting rooms are inviting, functional, and clean.

What it will take to make your waiting room have this feeling will depend on what type of practice you have. One example is a pediatric practice. With this type of waiting area you would need decor that suits a child and makes them feel comfortable such as pictures of animals on the wall and the color of the walls will need to give the area a cheery feeling. In the one corner of the room there could be a television mounted on the wall turned to a children's channel to entertain them while waiting their turn. There could be a small area with books to read, coloring books, blocks, etc to make their time waiting less stressful.

In most medical waiting rooms they are separated from the receptionist by a counter that has a sliding glass window. It may be a good idea to make the receptionist area a feature of the room that is easily identifiable. The receptionist area could be the first thing that the patient sees when they walk into the waiting area or it could be off to the side of the room..

The furniture also plays an important part in the design. You first need to decide just how many seats you want to have in the area and whether they will be individual chairs or a combination of single chairs and chairs that seat two people. If it is a pediatric office you should also include some smaller chairs and a small table for the children to sit at and color or play with blocks or other toys. You want the seating to be comfortable but functional. In regards to lighting using lamps or low lights is more welcoming than using bright fluorescent lights. The carpet and color of the walls should be a neutral color. You could also add some artwork, mirrors, or murals on the wall. To entertain the patients while waiting to see the physician there should be a selection of current magazines to browse through. Some medical waiting rooms also have soft music playing.

The journey of losing weight and changing to a full time healthy lifestyle is normally a very difficult one. Many people try to take on this task by themselves, which unfortunately usually leads to negative results and unhappiness. An individual can not underestimate the importance of their partner supporting or actually quitting bad lifestyle habits with them, as it has been proven that quitting a negative habit with your loved one is of enormous prominence. A new study shows that if you attempt this journey with a significant other, your chances of success grow significantly. The study, performed by scientists at the University College London, monitored couples where one partner decided to make a lifestyle change, and analyze how likely the other partner was to pick up this new lifestyle change. The three major activities looked at were starting to be active, losing weight and quitting smoking.

The study evaluated over 3,500 couples intensively. Across every activity evaluated, the results were the same. Couples were more likely to get healthy together when they started at the same time. Smoking was one of the most obvious cases. If both partners smoked, and one decided to give it up, 50% of the time the other partner was able to also give up smoking. When one of the partners was a non-smoker and the other did smoke, only 17% of those participants were able to give up smoking. Finally, if both of the partners were smokers, and one decided to try and give it up, only 8% of those individuals were able to quit. This makes sense, as if you are going through this process with someone close to you, and they can understand exactly how you are feeling when going through the rough patches of a lifestyle change, it can make the situation much more bearable.

These results are very important, as it shows the importance of support of your significant other and how imperative it is for couples to quit bad habits together. The results are in and it isn't even close. So next time you are ready to quit a bad habit, and you see your significant other also participates in that same bad habit, sit down and talk to them, and explain how important it is that you quit that bad habit together as success is much more probable! Good luck.

People dealing with asthma-related issues, tuberculosis, bronchitis and pneumonia that fall in the chronic category are often in need of a specialist. That specialist is a pulmonary physician. Pulmonologists, or pulmonary specialists, are physicians who study and treat diseases of the lungs, airways and chest, care for the very sick in critical care units, and are even medically equipped to handle sleep disorders.

Usually pulmonary specialists collaborate with your primary care provider and, depending on your ailment, are often part of a comprehensive team that may include everything from a cardiologist to an oncologist.
Why would you want to seek out a pulmonary doctor? Here are five reasons why it might be in your best interest.

1. If there are abnormalities in you lungs that make it difficult to exhale normally. Excessive inflammatory processes eventually lead to these abnormalities in the lung's structure that permanently obstruct airflow. Two common conditions leading to COPD are chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Signs related to this include:
• Chest pain, usually in the front of the chest.
• Dizziness
• Fainting
• Fatigue
• Leg swelling
• Light-headedness during exercise
• Shortness of breath during activity

2. A bad cough. It can be acute or chronic. Some of the more common causes of acute cough is respiratory infections. Chronic cough lasts for more than three weeks and may actually be a significant health problem.

3. Asthma. While this may be the most common chronic disease in children, it also affects a number of adults. This is a condition in which the bronchial tubes in the lungs react to stimuli and become inflamed. Shortness of breath is one of the symptoms it produces. Others include coughing, wheezing, and tightness in the chest.

4. Lung cancer. Tumors form when cells divide too much and too fast. If that tumor is confined and does not invade surrounding tissues or organs, it is benign. If it spreads to surrounding tissues or organs, it is considered malignant, or cancerous. With lung cancer, patients are generally advised to see a pulmonologist to evaluate lung problems that you have in addition to the cancer. This evaluates your lung function prior to surgery, or to treat lung symptoms you may have as a result of lung cancer surgery.

5. Breathing problems. Having difficulty breathing can be a sign of a serious lung condition. Pulmonologists would be able to evaluate you and make sure you are not facing a more serious health problem.

Remember to check with your doctor before taking any treatment or medical remedy.

There are some basic fundamentals of health. One is to get the proper nutrients in the body. Another is to get the toxins that have accumulated out of the body. Nutrients feed the body, while toxins hinder and block the body from working properly.

Where do toxins come from? They come from foreign and chemical substances in the air, water, and soil. They come from chemicals in cleaning products. Toxins are all around us in the types of products that are used in modern day society. Even with the best of intentions, simply living life exposes people to toxins. An example of toxins is this. This writer was told a story by a person who visited a chicken factory where eggs were laid and who noticed that there were no flies. The person asked why? The answer was that bug spray was put in the chicken feed. The question is, do you want that in your breakfast eggs? Another example: look on the back of most tubes of toothpaste. There is a warning. So these are just a couple of examples of toxins in the food or in many of the products we use.

Not only are there toxins, there are also genetically modified foods, also called GMOs (genetically modified organisms). What does "genetically modified" mean? It means the genes have been modified to make the food more saleable... redder tomatoes with a longer shelf life, food that resists insects while growing, food that is more transportable to market. GMOs are a serious problem. They have been banned in Europe. However there is a new move by the purveyors of GMOs in conjunction with legislations to hide the truth about GMOs by preventing the labelling from indicating the truth.

To really get serious about health, it is necessary to become informed about topics such as organic produce and GMOs. It is necessary to learn where toxins come from and begin to eliminate them from the diet and life style. It is necessary to learn how to build the body up from the effects of poor diet and toxins.

Actually, the answer goes beyond the personal level. While it is important to deal with the issue at the personal level, and to improve your own health and that of your family, it is necessary to get more involved at the political level. It is necessary to be on top of what is happening in the political realm, to be able to give your voice to your Senators, Representatives, and other officials in other nations. Basically, the lobbyists and money powers will rule over the voice of the people unless people make their voices known.

Steady metabolic fires are the key to so many better health goals: reducing your fatigue, having energy when you need it, faster healing times, reduced cholesterol, better hormone balance, healthier blood vessels, less blood clot risk, a healthier heart, achieving weight loss and gaining weight control, decreasing risk of kidney damage, lowering brain fog, to name a few.

But more and more of us in this modern age suffer blood sugar dysregulation in its various forms: hypoglycemia (blood sugar crashing) hyperglycemia (high blood sugar) insulinemia (high blood insulin levels), diabetes, and insulin resistance, to name a few.

Yet the basic design of your body is self-governing. In other words, your body is designed to automatically correct imbalances and heal itself. And a steady blood sugar throughout the day and night is central to that process. How can you support that innate process of self-regulation, and promote your better overall health and well-being?

Here are a few tips to aid you:

1. The more protein and vegetables you eat, and the fewer carbohydrates, the better of you'll be in supporting your body's blood sugar self regulation.

2. In choosing the carbohydrates you will consume, stick to those with a low glycemic index. A glycemic index is a number assigned to a food that measures how fast any particular carbohydrate increases the sugar (glucose) circulating in your blood. Want to check the glycemic index of foods you eat? Search the internet for 'glycemic index of foods'.

3. When you do eat carbohydrates, combine them with fiber or other foods that slow down the rate of absorption. This helps prevent those damaging blood sugar spikes.

4. Engage in regular, intense exercise. This is especially important if you don't want to take the drug Metformin, the only drug that the American Diabetes Association recommends for the 'prevention' of type 2 diabetes. As reported at medicine.net, while it is true that studies have shown that "Metformin reduced the development of type 2 diabetes by 31%", it is also important to understand that the benefit was not as great as with diet and intense exercise.

The side effects of this drug are many - among the more common, according to drug.com, are abdominal or stomach discomfort/ cough or hoarseness/decreased appetite/diarrhea/ fast or shallow breathing/fever or chills/general feeling of discomfort/ lower back or side pain/muscle pain or cramping/painful or difficult urination/ sleepiness

And, of course, diet and exercise have no side effects.

5. Never never, never consume anything with corn syrup in it. Why? Because corn syrup (regardless of the name by which it is called) kills the beta cells of the pancreas. These are the insulin producing cells that are key to regulating blood, which are currently being used instead of 'high fructose corn sugar. So read every label to check for the following names, which, as reported byhsionline.com are now being substituted for high fructose corn syrup, the label consumers have learned to recognize:
maize syrup/
glucose syrup/
glucose/fructose syrup/
tapioca syrup/
dahlia syrup/
fruit fructose/
crystalline fructose/
glucose-fructose (in Canada) and
isoglucose (in Europe).

6. Many blood sugar problems are caused by parasites, so consider a parasite-cleansing protocol with the help of a qualified health professional.

7. Increase your raw food consumption. Many experts recommend that you consume a minimum of 30% of your diet from raw foods. Why? Because, among other things, they supply the enzymes your body - and especially your pancreas - needs to function well.

8. If you need more than that to get your body's inherent self-regulatory mechanisms working, use the assistance of a holistic health practitioner who can recommend specific strategies for your particular body. In addition to checking for parasites, they can recommend which dietary strategies are best to you. They also know a variety of whole food concentrates and herbal supplements that can return your body's power to regulate itself back where it belongs.

For example, out of three people with basically the same blood sugar dysregulation symptoms and diagnosis, one may need GTF Chromium (GTF stands for 'glucose tolerance factor'), a second may have that aforementioned parasite issue, while the third may need the herb Gymnema ( used for over 3000 years and called the 'sugar destroyer' in Aurvedic medicine). Modern science has now demonstrated that taking Gymnema over 18 months can actually help regenerate the beta (insulin-producing) cells of the pancreas.

The point is, blood sugar problems are symptoms, not causes. Getting to the cause (or causes) not only can resolve them, it can also sidestep that long list of downstream health problems and set you on the road to better health all around.


Corrective Exercise vs Physiotherapy - A Complete Overview

While physiotherapists and exercise physiologists such as myself work in a similar field, it is difficult to dissect and define the differences between both positions. The reason is that both share many of the same features and values. They both cover a similar broad scope in the field and both are professionally trained. These professions overlap a great deal and for the average person, you might find the treatment provided from either is exceptional.

I am a qualified CHEK Practitioner and Personal trainer with over a decade of experience in corrective exercise knowledge some have considered me to be an exercise physiologist because of the extent of my furthered education in corrective exercise with the CHEK institute. I have been recognised as someone an individual comes to when all else fails. I am somewhat their last resort in trying to help with an injury. But to give you a better understanding, we'll take a moment to explore both professions briefly. This will help you to gain more insight into the realm of corrective exercise and physiotherapy and the brand I have created at Inpower Fitness In St Leonards.

Physiotherapist

The physiotherapist plays a key role in allied health. Their education consists of 4 years at a University that provides an in depth understanding of the musculoskeletal system. This is their main area of focus. They handle the prevention, treatment and the management of musculoskeletal disorders. Some professionals do extend their time in college and focus on areas of specialty in addition to the musculoskeletal system. This includes rehabilitation for the cardiovascular, pulmonary and neurological systems. Specialists may also focus on targeted areas like pediatric injuries or sports injuries.

Treatment methods for the physiotherapist will vary from one professional to the next. Commonly, these individuals will take advantage of things like therapeutic exercise, acupuncture, joint manipulation and mobilization, massage and similar treatments. Continued education is required in this position in order to remain accredited.

Exercise Physiology

Exercise physiology is a different approach to what a traditional physiotherapist handles. These individuals also require a 4 year degree from a University. Their focus is on corrective exercise as part of their treatment process. These professionals use exercises to combat injury, prevent chronic disease and to better manage the body. Their understanding is on the impact of exercise and how it impacts a person's overall health and how it can be used for healing.

Like other healthcare professions, exercise physiologists may have areas of specialty within their role. Professionals who focus on behaviour and lifestyle modification can be found in both private and public health. When you meet with this professional, they will go over any areas of concern and will review the targeted areas you need to work on for optimum health. They too must keep up with the changing world of healthcare and continue their education in order to remain accredited.

Are These Two Roles Just Personal Trainers?

A common misconception is that a physiologist and an exercise physiologist are just a trumped up version of a personal trainer. The truth is that are not. They both deal with the healing and rehabilitation of the body. A personal trainer is different in the fact that they don't require a college education. While they need to have some degree of understanding about the human body, there is no four year program for it. A person may become accredited through a national program to boost their visibility and to work in some national chains in this role. The program guarantees the person will receive their certification at the end of the course which I think is ridiculous considering the importance they play in everyone's lives and wellbeing. Their focus is simply on motivating their clients to exercise and to boost their fitness levels. This isn't done to treat or cure any diseases the individual may have.

What About a CHEK Practitioner?

There's a good chance you've heard the term CHECK Practitioner. But what does that mean? CHEK is not only the last name of Paul Check who is an important part of the founding community. It also stands for Corrective Holistic Exercise Kinesiology. The CHEK Institute features the experience and expertise of Paul's 25+ years of experience as a holistic health coach.

While there is a lot of positive information out there about CHEK practitioners, it is important to understand that some of the comprehensive healing practices are more diverse than you would expect from a Personal Trainer or physiologist. One who studies deep into the CHEK Levels gains a focus on more than just the physical and mental side of things, with an included aspect of digging into the spiritual health of a person.

The program is also not one a person completes in a few months. Like traditional physiology courses, practitioners are required to go through several years of training to earn their certification. Even with the years of training, those who become a CHEK practitioners are still required to continue to learn and gain more of an understanding of the practice. A certification and license is then maintained through continued education for these individuals.

Because of the watchful eyes on this practice, participants do go through a comprehensive evaluation, coaching and treatment process. This program does not guarantee that those who attend will receive certification. Like a traditional college course, the information is presented to the student and certification is then awarded to those who have shown they have a deep understanding of the program and have completed the individual sections of the course.

As they complete the program, the student CHEK practitioner goes through an extensive assessment process. This views their education and training and explores their work with the patients and their understanding of the human body. This includes the complex interrelated systems and the impact they have on each other. The CHEK practitioner will then use assessment tools to help them diagnose their patients to provide exceptional care. This is done through a physical examination of the individual and an in depth questionnaire that pinpoints specific areas of concern the individual may be dealing with. Like traditional physiologists, the CHEK practitioner specializes in an area that is unique to themselves.

Take The Time to Research the Professional You're Working With

When you deal with physiotherapists, you need to understand that they are not all the same. Each professional will have their own area of expertise and you need to ensure that it aligns with what you need. While someone may be the best in their field, it doesn't mean much if they are focusing on an area that isn't explicitly what you need.

For example, if you find a physiotherapist that is an expert in the lower body, they wouldn't be a good match for the upper body. While they could help you to treat the underlying issues, they wouldn't have the depth of knowledge of someone who focuses more heavily in that target area.

Another thing to consider is the approach these professionals take to the injuries themselves. Not every professional will address the underlying cause of your concern. In some cases, they'll just fix the symptoms associated with the problem, while ignoring the big picture. While this can bring temporary relief it is short lived and doesn't help you to fully heal. That is my biggest issue. That why I continued my education on Myofascial lines.

Myofascial Lines are Important

Myofascial lines are an important part of this process. They help the body to correctly move, build stability and to improve coordination. When you train the body to boost endurance and awareness, these areas are critically important. With strength and stability in place, you can help to reduce pain and structural weaknesses. As in most cases, these are the underlying sections that are contributing to the overall problem.

A good way to look at this is to view it as a chain of events in the body. When you experience injuries or movement limitations, areas of the body become weaker and performance decreases. An injury with a hamstring, for example, could cause you difficulty with your calves and even the lower back.

When you look at your body, there are eight major myofascial lines in the body. There is the spiral line that runs from the neck to the feet, the arm line that runs along the arms, the superficial front line that runs through the centre of the chest down the legs, and on a deeper level, you have the front line that follows the deep tissue muscles of the body. There's also a later line that runs along both sides of the body, and a superficial back line that runs from the head to the base of the feet on the back side of the body.

The Fascial System is Complex

To say the fascial system is complex is an understatement. Today, many scientists are still puzzled by the complexity of these systems. While there is an understanding of the logical consequences associated with them and injury, there are still questions about the impact they can have when a part of strength training.

What they do know is that the fascia system is very similar to the internet. They surround the organs and transmit information from one end of the body to the next. They allow the body to move with ease and create minimal friction. They are an oily tissue that for years wasn't viewed as being much more than "meat" on the body. In recent years, the science community has focused more heavily on this system and taken a keen interest in it. They have realized there are major components to it that cannot be overlooked. First, they are collagen fibers that have an incredible amount of strength to them. The elastin in these is very similar to a rubber band. This allows them more elasticity and to better encase the organs and help to hold them in place. The water which remains between these fibers is what helps them to glide smoothly, and is one of the reasons why they are able to glide between and over each other with ease.

Fascia Facts You Need to Know

There are some important fascia facts that are important in your understanding of the human body. As you explore corrective exercise more, these each play a pivotal role.

Fascia are a 3D structural support system for your organs.
They minimize the stress experienced by bones, joints and muscles.
These muscles help the body to function more efficiently and help to reduce energy consumption.
Will remodel themselves to help improve movement and reduce the risk of stress based injuries in the muscles of the body.
Have a unique ability to heal themselves and to constantly repair as necessary.
They act independently of the central nervous system. In fact, they use gravity to help maintain tension and shape, which allows us to maintain certain movements and postures with ease.
Allows the body to train as a whole, rather than individual sections. This is because their design allows the entire body to participate in certain movements and this helps to boost physical fitness and health.
As we look at the fascia, we need to understand that myofascial lines are a critical part of our body's mobility. As we improve them and train, we are able to better function and move utilizing three planes of motion. When exercising, it is critical to continue to work the entire system at all times to improve their durability and strength. You'll find that as they develop more, you also have a better speed than if you weren't optimizing the function of the fascia.

Dos and Don'ts of Training this Neuromyofascial Web

Do use variation rather than repetition, to help smooth out the fascia.
Don't use repetitive motion exercises that work the same fascial line too frequently in a single workout.
Do work the entire body with your movements. The key here is to engage and train the system.
Don't work out with upper level loads all the time. This will help to prevent injury.
Do teach your body adaptive movements.
Don't train at the same tempo for each session, as it limits growth and development.
Corrective Exercises and Stretches that are More Beneficial to Rehabilitation

Corrective exercises and stretches work together and independent of each other. To understand that, you need to understand the difference between both of them.

Rehabilitation is a process that is essential in the treatment of an injury. It is designed to help promote the recovery of ligaments, muscles and tendons, while providing the body with the functional stability needed to heal. Injuries prevent the body from functioning properly and form an internal weakness. To heal, the body needs to go beyond these injuries and learn to function again. This process is essentially the reconditioning and strengthening of the internal elements to a preinjury state.

Corrective exercise ties into that. This is an exercise that is designed to improve biomechanics and to correct posture. Unlike rehabilitation, this takes a corrective action against improper biomechanics. These are specific to the actual individuals needs and the corrective exercises are adjusted based on these needs. This is often done with a key set of exercises that are determined essential for that individual.

Corrective exercises and stretches are more beneficial to people than rehabilitation exercise. The reason is they not only strengthen muscles that have become weak, but they also help to fix the muscle imbalances in the body that can lead to injury in the first place. This reduces the risk of the body becoming injured against and can help to restore perfect health.

A Look at Some Corrective Exercises

To gain some insight into corrective exercises, it is important to look at an example of them. The first is the Golf Ball Roll. This exercise helps to address musculoskeletal deviations that can lead to both over pronation and chronic pain in the body. This is caused by the foot flattening under the weight of the body and impacting the mid line.

This corrective exercise is simple. Take a golf ball and place it on the base of your foot. Now roll the ball around on the sore spots of the foot. This can be done for 30 seconds to a minute on each foot. Do this standing up and you'll experience results in just a few day. Continue to do this to continue to improve the health of your feet. Just avoid putting too much pressure on your foot.

Roller Quadriceps are designed to address the four quadriceps in the upper leg. Three of them are located at the top of the leg, and stretch to the kneecap. The fourth, known as the rectus femoris, runs from the pelvic area to the knee cap. This muscle is responsible for the flexing in the hip. This includes the ability to extend it when sitting, or to stand up properly. When damaged, it can prevent a person from changing position and can cause stress to the lumbar spine, damage can also result in severe lower back pain. An effective corrective exercise requires a foam roller to be placed perpendicular to your thigh as you lie on it. Roll your body over the foam roller in areas where there is soreness and use your body weight to hold you in place in these sections for about a minute each. Do this daily for optimum results.

The iliotibial band is another area that can benefit from corrective exercise. This is the band that connects the gluteus maximus to the lower leg. When the body is free from injury, these muscles will work together and allow you to easily rotate your foot. When the muscles experience over pronation, this can cause these muscles to work ineffectively. That may lead to irritation and possibly inflammation. Fortunately, this corrective exercise can help to improve the functioning. Just note that you need to avoid the knee joints when doing this movement as it can cause damage to the knee. All you need to do is take the roller and lie it perpendicular on the floor. Take the side of your thigh and lie on it. Roll over the sore sections of the leg and hold your body weight against those areas for a minute or two daily. You'll begin to notice a vast improvement in just a few short days.

With more time spent in front of a television, sitting at a computer and even driving, the gluteal complex is experiencing more stress and strain. As these muscles become weaker, it can make walking and other simple tasks hard. But many of those concerns can be addressed with a simple baseball. All you do is lie on your back with your knees bent. Take a baseball and roll it around under your buttocks. Stop and hold the baseball at these spots for a few minutes and then continue. If you don't have a baseball, a tennis ball will work fine for this corrective exercise. It is important you keep your knees bent at all times to avoid hyperextending your lumbar spine, which may result in further injury.

Excessive thoracic kyphosis is one of the most common conditions that lead to upper back pain. This is the result of chronic stress and sitting at a computer for long periods of time. With this condition, you begin to experience rounding in the area of the shoulders, neck and head. When you stand, the erect spine then experiences a multitude of tension and can lead to further problems. To address this, you can take a pair of tennis balls and place each on one of the sides of your spine. Ideally, this placement is in the mid to upper section of your back. You then support your head and bend your knees as you lie on the balls. You can then raise your pelvis and you flatten the lower back. Move along the balls until you find a sore spot. Then hold the position for 30 seconds. Keep doing this until you have worked the balls around the spine and the upper back. It is important to note that if you feel any extreme pain, you must cease this process at once, as it may be linked to an underlying condition with the spine.

Your daily activities may be impacting your spine. Things like lunging, squatting and even walking, require you to utilize different sections of the body. This includes your ankles. When they are working properly, the ankles allow you to move forward and to bend as needed to adjust to different positions. When they become restricted, the ankle dorsiflex can cause pain and lead to an inability to move. Fortunately, there is a corrective exercise for this concern. All you need to do is to take a BOSU ball and stand erect next to it. Take your heel and place it on the back of the ball. Then with the heel in a downward position, begin to rotate the back of the leg in an outward motion. Do this to loosen up the muscles and to improve their function. Just be sure to go slowly and avoid forcing the muscle that can lead to further injury of the body.

Corrective exercises are an essential part of keeping the body healthy and limber. When you utilize them with an expert, you are able to restore the function of the body and to ensure you have a full range of motion in place. Keep these exercises in mind the next time you are experiencing a degree of pain, and consider working closely with a specialist to further address any underlying concerns you may have. Just remember that no physical activities should be started without consulting with your physician first. They will understand your unique healthcare needs and will address any potential concerns that they might have.
