Myofascial Pain Syndrome and Trigger Points Treatments, Animation.
Myofascial pain syndrome is a common chronic pain disorder that can affect various parts of the body. Myofascial pain syndrome is characterized by presence of hyperirritable spots located in skeletal muscle called trigger points. A trigger point can be felt as a band or a nodule of muscle with harder than normal consistency. Palpation of trigger points may elicit pain in a different area of the body. This is called referred pain. Referred pain makes diagnosis difficult as the pain mimics symptoms of more wellknown common conditions. For example, trigger point related pain in the head and neck region may manifest as tension headache,.
Temporomandibular joint pain, eye pain, or tinnitus. Symptoms of myofascial pain syndrome include regional, persistent pain, commonly associated with limited range of motion of the affected muscle. The pain is most frequently found in the head, neck, shoulders, extremities, and lower back. Trigger points are developed as a result of muscle injury. This can be acute trauma caused by sport injury, accident, or chronic muscle overuse brought by repetitive occupational activities, emotional stress or poor posture. A trigger point is composed of many contraction knots where individual muscle fibers contract and cannot relax. These fibers make the muscle.
Shorter and constitute a taut band a group of tense muscle fibers extending from the trigger point to muscle attachment. The sustained contraction of muscle sarcomeres compresses local blood supply, resulting in energy shortage of the area. This metabolic crisis activates pain receptors, generating a regional pain pattern that follows a specific nerve passage. The pain patterns are therefore consistent and are well documented for various muscles. Treatment of myofascial pain syndrome aims to release trigger points and return the affected muscle to original length and strength. Common treatment options include.
Manual therapy, such as massage, involves application of certain amount of pressure to release trigger points. The outcome of manual therapy strongly depends on the skill level of the therapist. The Spray and Stretch technique makes use of a vapor coolant to quickly decrease skin temperature while passively stretching the target muscle. A sudden drop in skin temperature provides a pain relief effect, allowing the muscle to fully stretch, and thus releasing the trigger points. Trigger point injections with saline, local anesthetics or steroids are well accepted as effective treatments for myofascial trigger points.
First Rib Mobilization for Neck Shoulder Pain Relief Ask Doctor Jo
Hey everybody, it's Doctor Jo. Today I'm gonna show you how to mobilize your first rib. It can cause a lot of problems like numbness in your arms or even headaches. So this is a good way to try and get some of that calmed down for you. THere's some simples exercises, let's get going. The first thing you can do is grab a belt or something tight, maybe even a long beach towel. But you want it to be something firm, not like those bands that give. Put the belt around the top of your neck and shoulder on the side that hurts.
Hold it here with the other side and if you can, if your arm's not hurting badly enough, grab behind you, so your kind of at and angle. Almost like a seat belt like when you're putting the seatbelt on. You want to take your neck and side bend towards that side and kind of turn down cause that makes those muscles those scalene muscles relax so it's holding on to that first rib there. You want to push down towards that opposite side. And give a nice big pull, hold it there, and take a deep breath. As you let the breath out, pull even harder.
And hold it there about as long as you can, 30 seconds, and then relax. If that gets pretty easy, and your not feeling quite as much of a stretch, you can actually then take a ball, racquetball, tennis ball, something kind of firm, and put it in that same spot. Right where that first rib rolls around the neck to the shoulder. Put it there, press down, side ben your head again. Nice deep breath, and I'm pushing down as I'm breathing out. Holding, holding, holding, and then relax. You can do this as many times as you want.
KT Tape Bicep
I'm Chris Harper, and with me is Melissa and we're here to show you the application for bicep pain Pain of the bicep may be in front of shoulder, or anywhere along the bicep and some causes may include tears or strains to the muscle itself nerve, ligament, or tendon damage. KT Tape helps treat this condition by relieving pressure, supporting the muscle, and may increase circulation. For this application, Melissa, let's go ahead and have you sit on the end of the table. We're going to tear one piece of tape, and we're going to position.
The bicep on stretch, so we're going to bring the arm out to the side and bring that arm back just a little bit. For this first piece I'm going to twist and tear the paper backing creating an anchor point down on the logo end of the tape I'm going to apply this with absolutely no stretch just above the elbow, so I'm actually avoiding the skin in front of the elbow as this tends to be very sensitive. I'm going to peel that paper backing off, I'm going to place that on twenty five percent.
Stretch, so if this is one hundred percent, I'll back that off fiftypercent, and fiftypercent again and I'm going to lay that tape down and with that last bit of tape, I'm going to take that paper off and put that piece down with absolutely zero stretch. Give that a good friction rub before you move out of position that creates some heat and better adhesion of the tape Okay, go ahead and bring that arm back down and rest right there. Some tips before applying, clean the skin very well to remove any.

Secret Symptoms of a Heart Attack
In the movies, when people have heart attacks, they often clutch their chest in pain and collapse on the floor. But in real life, that's often not the way it happens. We bring you the bottom line on secret symptoms of a heart attack. Hi, I'm Pilar Gerasimo, with a Bottom Line Expert report on heart attacks. I'm here today with Dr. Suzanne Steinbaum, director of Women's Heart Health at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. Dr. Steinbaum, I notice that in the movies, there are these incredibly dramatic eventsyou.
Know, people have heart attacks and they clutch their chest, they fall to the floor, they die instantly. But in real life, I understand that that's not actually the way it happens. Can you tell us a little bit about what does it actually look and feel like to have a heart attack It's not always that Hollywood heart attack. There are often more subtle signs. Definitely chest pain or pressure is the most common symptom people have, but it could also be shortness of breath, fatigue, nausea, back pain, jaw pain, vomiting, even flulike symptoms,.
So don't exactly expect that Hollywood heart attack. You just described a whole bunch of symptoms, many of which could be everyday ailments. It might be indigestionI ate something too spicy. or I'm coming down with the flu. How do I differentiate between these every day things and something that could be much more dramatic When you think about what a heart attack iswhich is actually lack of oxygen to the heart musclethat's when you get the symptoms. So if it is happening with exertion and with really exercising and then if it is relieved with rest, think about your heart. If you have indigestion, you take.
Something for your stomach and it goes away, so it's probably not your heart. If you have pain, you take an antiinflammatory and it goes away, again, probably not your heart. But if the symptoms come back, you really should not dismiss it. And think heart first! It is better to be wrong than to be sorry. So I know that there's sometimes confusion about the difference between a heart attack and cardiac arrest. Could you explain the difference to us Cardiac arrest is truly sudden death, and there's nothing we can do about it. When someone.
Has a heart attack, it's damage to the heart muscle. We can intervene.we can open blood flow of that artery to the muscle.and we can actually prevent people from having heart damage. So it's a very important distinction. One there is nothing we can do about, unless maybe if it is witnessed and we can do CPR. But for people having a heart attack, it's about intervention, getting to the doctor, getting to the hospital as soon as possible. The bottom line on heart attack symptoms is that they often disguise themselves as other.
KT Tape Calf
Music I'm Chris Harper and with me is Makayla And we're here to demonstrate and application for calf pain. This is when you have muscles on the back of the lower leg that are aching, spasming or cramping. Some possible causes for this are tears due to improper changes in direction while running, dehydration or overuse. KT Tape helps treat this condition by relaxing the muscles, increasing circulation, and relieving pressure For this application we need to place the calf on stretch. So Makayla I'm going to have you turn around.
Let's go ahead and have you put that leg out behind you. And we're going to put that heel right down on the floor. So that stretches the skin and calf muscles on the back of the leg here. So for our first piece of tape we're going to take one full strip We're going to twist and tear the paper towards the logo end of the tape And peel that piece off, being very careful not to touch the adhesive part of the tape. I'm going to place this down just by the achilles tendon.
I'm going to rub that on without any stretch on that part of the tape Then I'm going to peel that paper off leaving just enough paper to hang on to I'm going to stretch that out to twentyfive percent stretch. So if this is onehundred percent, we're going to back that off half, and then half again And go ahead and lay that piece down and taking that paper off leaving just one end of the tape that I can lay down with absolutely zero stretch And for our second piece, I'm going to tear another full strip, again twisting.
And tearing the backing paper and remove that and place that down again on the Achilles just offset from the other piece. It has zero stretch on it. I'm going to remove the paper backing leaving myself a little bit of paper to hang on to, trying not to touch the adhesive again, stretching that out, we're going to do about twentyfive percent stretch so full stretch, fifty, twentyfive. We're going to lay that down, leaving one end of the tape with absolutely zero stretch. And at the end of this I'm just going to give that a good friction rub.
So I create a little bit of heat,that allows the adhesive to really stick. Some tips before applying this is to clean the skin and trim or shave any excess hair so it does adhere to the skin very well. Also you may want to wear socks to sleep at night so it doesn't roll on you. Some complimentary treatments may include rest, ice, massage and light progressive stretching of the calf. Please seek care if you experience extreme pains, swellings or discoloration, or heat coming off the calf muscle. And for more information see our website at kttape.
Exercise to Stay Sharp Eddie Phillips LifestyleFACTS
Hi. I'm Dr. Eddie Phillips. I'm a physician specializing in lifestyle medicine and board certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation. We all want to stay mentally sharp, but what's the best way to do that I explain to my patients that exercise is the key to staying sharp. Even mild activity boosts blood flow to your brain. That means oxygen is getting to your brain to keep those neural networks humming. In addition, exercise also boosts mental performance by improving sleep quality and reducing insomnia. Learning, memory and your ability to solve puzzles are all enhanced by a good night's.
Rest. In a systematic review of research on this subject, exercise training was shown to improve sleep quality in middleaged and older adults. Moreover, a Mayo Clinic review confirmed that exercise significantly reduces the risk of problems with thinking, memory and even dementia as a person ages. Yes, exercise should be included as a prescription for protecting brain health. Studies have shown less agerelated shrinkage of brain tissue in physically fit participants ages 55 to 79. People age 55 to 80 who exercise regularly also have sharper attention, organization and planning functionsthese are called executive control functions.
Do you know that physical activity may even stimulate the growth of brain cells This regenerationor plasticity, as neurologists call itmay help the nervous system combat some effects of aging or conditions like stroke that may injure the brain. Finally, regular exercise helps prevent or reduce other health problems that may harm the brain. These include High blood pressure and elevated lipids that contribute to arteryclogging atherosclerosis that reduces the flow of oxygen to brain cells. Diabetes, which can compromise memory. And transient ischemic attacksor ministrokeswhen blood flow to the brain is briefly interrupted, as well as fullfledged strokes that can destroy.
