Hip Pain Relief Piriformis SI joint Yoga Tune Up

lastly you need to use your Yoga Tune Up Balls to target powerful muscle call the piriformis. the the piriformis is a major muscle in yourbuttocks. that helps to rotate your thigh bone outwards. The muscle starts right about at your SI joint that's called the sacroiliac joint.

You can find it by looking for the dimples in your sacrum There's a little dimple here on the inner edgeof each buttock. so you take your balls and place it right thereon that dimple and then slowly start to shimmy you hips along the muscle from side to side.

the muscle the piriformis overlies the sciatic nerve and often when people have sciatic nerve painit's because the piriformis is so tight now because you're shimmying and your buttocksdo have some amount of size to them from time to time you're gonna have to resetthe balls because your buttocks are going to be pushing the balls out of the way and one more thing to do to get deeper intothat piriformis is to drop one knee the at a time as you shimmy

and he will definitely need to reset yourballs but oh my goodness this is so incredible What a massage, right into that piriformis.

Shoulder Arthritis Symptoms and Treatment QA

My name is Uma Srikumaran. I'm an orthopedic surgeon with Johns Hopkins and Howard County General . I specialize in shoulder surgery. Shoulder arthritis refers to degeneration of thelining of the joint. The lining of the joint is made of smooth cartilage thatcan wear out over time or can be diseased by inflammatory conditions such asrheumatoid arthritis or from a traumatic condition or posttraumatic arthritisafter a shoulder dislocation. The typical wear and tear arthritis iscalled osteoarthritis.

Pain is the most common symptom of shoulder arthritis. Pain can occur throughout the day and worsen with certain and catching may also be noticed coming from the shoulder. As arthritisprogresses the pain and stiffness will progress as well. Nonsurgical treatment for shoulder arthritisincludes simple measures such as rest and activity modifications or avoidingactivities that are painful for your shoulder. Nonsteroidal antiinflammatorymedications can also be beneficial for pain relief.

Other options include icing, physicaltherapy and cortisone injections that may also provide symptomatic relief. When nonsurgical treatments fail toprovide pain relief over a period of time or the pain becomes unbearable,surgical shoulder replacement surgery is an option. The goals of shoulder replacement surgery are pain relief as well as improved function so you may resume everydayactivities. The surgery is performed under generalanesthesia often with a nerve block

and involves an open incision in front ofyour shoulder. The arthritic bone is carefully removedalong with scar tissue and a metal prosthesis and a plastic component are inserted torecreate the ball and socket joint of the shoulder. Recovery after shoulder replacement surgery involves a one to two day admission. After this, an outpatient physicaltherapy program is performed usually beginning at two weeks aftersurgery and extending for several months. During this period patients are providedpain medications. Physical therapy will progress overseveral months. At first the therapist will

guide the patient on passive range ofmotion exercises followed by active range of motion exercises in which the patientperforms themselves. After a range of motion has been restored, strengthening exercisescan begin.

Thumb Arthritis Diagnosis and Treatment QA

MUSIC My name is W.P. Andrew Lee. I'm the director ofthe Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeryat Johns Hopkins MUSIC Thumb arthritis comesfrom wear and tear. The basal joint of the thumbis the most flexible and versatile joint inthe entire human body.

It allows us to turn the thumb360 degrees to have all the dexterity in the hand to doall the things that we can do. And that's why it gets a lotof use and wear and tear, and typically after decades of use,the joint wears out. It gives the patient pain, it gives swelling,there can be deformity. And the patient has more and more discomfort whenthey use their hand.

MUSIC The most common symptom fromthumb arthritis is pain and progressive pain. The patient typically startsout with some discomfort and use in their thumb or handthat progresses over a period of months orsometime even years. Eventually the paincan be disabling that precludes the patient fromeveryday activities, whether its

in the kitchen, around the houseor doing outdoor work. The most common activities thatI hear from my patients that result from thumb arthritisare daily simple things, such as opening a jar,opening a large doorknob, or things that don't requirea lot of strength that require the dexterity ofthe thumb to achieve. MUSIC A diagnosis can be made inthe office by a trained hand

specialist. It's often obviousonce the patient complains of the symptoms whenthe physician examines the hand. There can be deformity, therecan be swelling in the thumb joint, and when the patientloses the thumb, it's obviously not a normaljoint that's gliding smoothly. MUSIC I typically start out witha soft splint that the patient

wears around the thumb. The fingers are completely free,but the thumb is supported. This way the patient canstill use the hand freely and perform most activities, yetthe thumb receives the support needed to help reduce the painwhen the patient uses the hand. MUSIC If the conservative treatmentsdo not completely relieve the patient's symptom, surgicaltreatment may be considered.
