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.
Osteoarthritis vs rheumatoid arthritis pathophysiology
I thought aboutdrawing two different joints to show us the differencebetween rheumatoid and osteoarthritis. But then I thought showingit on the same picture might be easier to see the differences. But on this side we'll keepit rheumatoid arthritis, and the other side, green,will be osteoarthritis. Let's start with thepathophysiology of osteoarthritis
which is overuse. This is where elderlypeople, or people who are carrying a lot of extraweight, or have extra wear and tear on their jointstend to get osteoarthritis. And first thing's first, wehave our joint space here, this is a synovial joint, so it moves. These two bones move against each other. These are gonna be the bone parts.
We're not gonna do very much with them, we care about where they come together. This yellowish layer yousee here, is cartilage. It's kind of a cushionbetween the two bones. We don't want the two bonesto rub against each other. This soft, waxy cartilage,do rub against each other. Now over here we have the synovium, which is a very thin layer of tissue.
And its job is to produce synovial fluid, which is a lubricant of the whole system. Synovium if you look at the word, just as an extra trivia,syn means quot;similar toquot;, and ovium is referring tothe word quot;ovumquot; or quot;eggquot;. So synovial fluidsecreted by the synovium, is this whitish material,very, kind of like the consistency of egg whites.
I think that's where the word came from. Synovium, like egg whites. And that's all filled intheir joint space here, to lubricate the movementsbetween the two bones. So as you can imagine, thissystem allows the bones to move every whichway, gives us movement. Osteoarthritis if I had tosummarize it in two words, I would say it is cartilage destruction.
It is purely mechanical wear and tear of the cartilage layer, this cushioning. So we think of elderlypeople having this problem, but the truth is, thestate of one's cartilage is also genetic, some people have better or more cartilage to begin with. So the age issue aside,just think of it as the destruction ofcartilage layer with time.
What is Osteoarthritis A short Introduction
Living with pain, stiffness, or inflammation can be a sign of osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis affecting onethird of U.S. adults over the age of 65. In this tutorial we explainwhat causes osteoarthritis what it does to your body and some of the best treatments
that are available today. Osteoarthritis is mostly caused by wear and tear of ageing joints, but excessive weight, extreme physical activity, or repetitive manual tasks can make it worse faster. Osteoarthritis is also linked
to genetic predispositions,inflammation, diet and damage to the bone underneath the cartilage which supplies the cartilage with nutrition. A joint is where two bones meet. The ends of these bones are cushioned by a smooth, slippery layer of articular cartilage like the rubbery cartilage
on the tip of a chicken leg. Movable joints are surrounded by a synovial membrane that contains a liquid called synovial fluid. Osteoarthritis occurs when the joint cartilage erodes, and the bones begin
to grate against one another. Bone spurs are protrusions that can grow from the bone as a result of this constant friction. Osteoarthritis can affect any joint of the body, but it is most prevalent in Knees, hips, big toes, spine and hands.
Osteoarthritis has no cure, but there are a variety of options to treat the disease. If the disease is caught early and there isjust some wear and tear, some of the joint can be preserved through lifestyle changes. Oral supplements like glucosamine sulphate
