How to Recover from a Running Injury
Hey guys, Dr. Axe here. Founder of draxe, doctor of functional medicine. Today I want to talk to you about how to overcome a running injury or athletic injury. Whether you're a runner or a soccer player or basketball player, any type of athlete, you've had an injury that has been running or jumping related, there are specific things you absolutely want to do to overcome that injury and to start to heal very quickly. And the first thing you want to do is rest the area, and you want to actually start doing exercise that is non.
Impactful. Typically the best things to do, especially if you're a runner, are to start cycling and swimming. Cycling and swimming, you're going to still be working your lungs, you're going to be working larger muscle groups like your legs. So it's going to help your body stay in shape at the very same time increasing circulation into that area, helping you heal faster. So again, if you're not able to run right now, start swimming and start cycling on a good spin bike or do spin classes. That's the first thing you want to do when you're.
Overcoming a running injury once that area feels well enough for you to start being active again. Step number two is you've got to change your diet. You've got to start eating antiinflammatory foods, things that are high in omega3 fats like wild cut salmon, grass fed beef, and chia seeds. Also you want to start consuming antiinflammatory herbs like turmeric, and ginger are some of the best, they're fantastic. And then also, in general, just getting more fruits and vegetables in your diet. And in terms of a liquid coconut water has a lot.
Of potassium that can actually help eliminate toxins in your system, can help heal an area that's injured from a running injury. The next step and thing you want to do from a running injury is start strengthening your muscles. And one of the best things to do is to do band exercises. You can do bands, those are very nonimpactful, and they actually help your body work through a full range of motion. So start using bands both upper and lower body, doing lower body exercises. One of the next steps I'd do, step four, is get some soft tissue work done, and go and.
Find a good quality athletic trainer, massage or massage therapist. Somebody that can really go out, and look at your body, feel for different knots or muscular or physical imbalances. It could be possible that you have a muscular imbalance or a muscle spasm somewhere that's causing your body to run out of balance. Imagine this as well, lets say you have a short leg, and you're running all the time, it's like you're putting extra stress on one joint more than the others over, and over, and over again. And that's when you may even consider seeing.
Someone like a chiropractor. But again seeing a nature holistic physician whether it would be an athletic trainer, massage therapist, a chiropractor, they can really look at your physical structure, and your musculature, and help balance things out. And then when you start running again, start running on softer surfaces, and work your way up slowly. A lot of times we increase our mileage too fast, that can cause a running injury. And so what you want to start doing is just increasing 10 a week over time in your running volume or athletic volume or whatever you're doing. And I'll tell you,.
SelfTest for Thyroid Problems
Hi I'm Dr. Allen Peters, Physician Healthy Aging Expert from NourishingWellness and I'm here today for About to share with you how to do a SelfTest for Thyroid Problems. This is a very simple exam which I do on every patient that I see, and you can do on yourself. You put your head back and feel for the thyroid cartilage. You feel both sides of the cartilage, and you might feel a small amount of soft tissue. You can exaggerate the tissue or exaggerate the thyroid cartilage by swallowing several times. If you feel more than a small amount.
Of tissueIf you feel a swelling or lumps or bumps this may be indicative on an enlarged thyroid or thyroid nodules which could be benign or malignant. If you do feel something large you should see your doctor. If he or she agrees the next step is usually getting an ultrasound. Now I want to mention that there are also some lumps behind the cartilage on the side of the neck, and these are just lymph nodes. I'm talking about the actual thyroid cartilage itself and the gland that is right there in.
That particular area. By the way, I want to emphasize that you could have an abnormal thyroid without being able to feel anything. It can be either hypothyroid or hyperthyroid. So if you are having symptoms of an increased metabolic rate like high blood pressure and palpitations and anxiety and nervousness to a great degree. Or if you are having slow down symptoms of slowdown metabolism like being tired and fatigued and depressed and low blood pressure and low pulse rate and constipated and hair falling out, then you may have thyroid disease even if you can't feel anything abnormal. So under those conditions.
Is it Normal to Spot During My First Trimester
Is it normal to spot during my first trimester It is normal to spot in the first days when the embryo implants, though it often means the vaginal discharge is orange or pink because blood mixed with the normal secretions. I'm past that point. If you're up to the point where the early pregnancy tests say yep, you're pregnant, there is the possibility you'll still spot as the menstrual cycle is turned off. If my period starts, I've lost the baby. It is estimated that that happens half the time. And yes, you could have spotting in.
The first month because you got pregnant and did not stay pregnant. I'm past the first month, but I'm still in the first trimester. I've heard spotting is normal and that it is something to run to the doctor for. Heavy bleeding like a period past the first month is a sign of something wrong, though whether a miscarriage or detached placenta, only the doctor would know. I do not even know what a detached placenta is. Sometimes the placenta detaches from the uterine wall, causing heavy bleeding like a period.
But it can be heavier than a period and even life threatening. To the baby, of course. And to you, so if there's blood gushing, rush to the ER. Or have someone else take me. But I'm only seeing spotting, not enough blood to suit a horror movie. You can have some spotting from an infection, like an STD flaring up during pregnancy. That requires treatment too. And sometimes it is due to tears in the vaginal wall. I'm already pregnant, so what could be tearing it. Sex while pregnant might, and straining and stretching as the kid grows and you try to.
Do the yoga moves you used to. I'm already having trouble reaching down and around. I'm not going to do contortions. Spotting could be a sign of ectopic pregnancy, as the fetus grows where the body cannot accommodate it, so it presses on surrounding tissue and you get bleeding. I've heard of women going in thinking they had appendicitis with that. If the bleeding is accompanied by constant pressure and pain, you do need to go to the doctor, even if the blood is only spotting right now. Any other causes I need to know about before I get paranoid.
Hypertension. I Forgot to Mention.
Yo my mom's got hypertension and I'm bout to get it too I dont know that its coming cuz I aint sick like the flu They call it silent killer cuz you dont know that its there But Im bout to tell you a few thing so that you can be aware Have good eating habits with diet and exercise Cuz if you don't do that then your pressure'll be on the rise Put down that side of fries and pick up some fresh fruit Get off your lazy bum and put on them new boots.

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.

Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery Blossom Bariatrics Las Vegas
I'm Dr. Tom Umbach. I've been doing bariatric surgery for 15 years, now, and I originally came into bariatric surgery when I did my fellowship at USC. I discovered then that they had these operationsbypass, gastric bypass, back then. These operations that can help people lose diabetes, or to help cure it or resolve ittheir diabetescompletely, without medication. And, so, as a general surgeon that had seen plenty of people with complications from diabetes, I was all over that. That was incredibly powerful for me. One of the things that really appealed to me about bariatric surgery was we were starting.
To do it laparoscopically, and even 10 years ago, really, people spent 37 days in the hospital after an open bypass. And in my fellowship, we learned to do it laparoscopically, where we could now offer somebody the same surgery, and yet they could go home the same day or the very next day, because now these operations are done through a little cuts, instead of a big cut. I like the challenge of it it's very personally rewarding because these operations are very tough and very tough to master and difficult to learn, and that has been a very.
Rewarding journey for me as well. I love it when, 6 months later, I'm seeing people in the office and they're coming back to see me and they've lost 60, 80, maybe even 100 pounds. They're no longer taking their diabetic medications, and they've gotten rid of their sleep apnea machine, and they've gotten rid of their high blood pressure medications, and they're out there hiking or traveling or doing whatever, and they've really blossomed as people. That's what I love to see. That's one of the reasons we've named our company.
Blossom Bariatrics. We're here because we want to help as many people as possible. Sure, I could have pricing that was 23 times what we do now, but then I'd only have 1 or 2 a month, and I really wouldn't be helping that many people. So, I'm not in it to make, y'know, a quick buck, or anything like that. I'm in it to help as many people as possible. So, we have a very different philosophy than, I think, a lot of offices do. So, we try to keep our costs very low any savings we get because of the bulk we do, or savings of a.
Hospital, we tend to pass those on to patients. I don't think about supporting patients the same way usually doctors think about it. In one of the things we bring to that is I like to give my patients my cell phone. In fact, it's on my business card and my cell phone number is right there so they can call me any time with questions or concerns. We try very hard in the office to make it as convenient to patients as possible, and part of that convenience is adding in enough layers so that everything is available in the office.
So, for example, when patients come to their first consultation with us, they'll see not only me in consultation, but they'll also see the nutritionist, because she's in our office they'll see the insurance specialist, because they're in our office we get a full set of labs done so, we oftentimes diagnose medical problems that people didn't even know about we do a psychological evaluationall in that first visit. And that does a couple of things one, it's easy, because you've just got to go to one place and get everything.
Doneonestopshop but the other thing is we're all procrastinators. So, if I give you a long list of things to do, I won't get to them because I'm busy. But if we get it all done in that first visit, we have about 90 of what we need to dodone! And that's just going to make patients more successful in the long run. There's no time like now! So, now is the best time to get started and to get moving on this. We'd love to be in this journey with you together, here at Blossom Bariatrics. So, please give us a callgive.
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.
