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.
Early Rheumatoid Arthritis al Guideline for Diagnosis and Management
Hello, I'm Norman Swan. Welcome to this program on the alguideline for diagnosis and management of early rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic,debilitating disease which may last a lifetime. Early diagnosis and management can limitstructural damage of the joints and improve quality and length of lifeas well as other health outcomes. This program is the secondof four programs
on the new musculoskeletal guidelines. The al guidelinesfor general practitioners and other primary healthcareprofessionals have been developed by the Royal Australian Collegeof General Practitioners and approved by the National Healthand Medical Research Council. This program will cover the diagnosisof rheumatoid arthritis and discuss the recommendedinterventions for early RA in the Australianprimary healthcare setting.
As always,you'll find a useful number of resources on the Rural Health EducationFoundation's website: I'll introduce our panel to you. John Bennett is a GPat the University Health Service at the University of Queensland, and was a member of the College of GPs'working group for the guideline. Welcome, John. Thank you. Lyn March is a rheumatologistat Royal North Shore
in the University of Sydney. Welcome, Lyn. Thanks, Norman. Lyn was also a memberof the guideline working group. Christine Retallack isa community health nurse in rheumatology working in the Albany Rheumatology in Western Australia. Welcome, Christine. Thank you. The community rheumatology nurse isa species unique to Western Australiaé It doesn't happen anywhere elsein Australia.
Perhaps we'll find out it should. Yes. Last but not least, Louise Sharpe,associate professor and director of al Research in the School of Psychology at theUniversity of Sydney. Welcome, Louise. Louise has a strong interestin rheumatoid arthritis and similar diseases. To start, let's hear from four womenfrom Western Australia, Liz, Anne, Terri and Jill, abouttheir experiences of having early RA.
1983 was quite a stressful year for me. I felt that I was overweight, and I wasdoing an exercise program at home. Each morning I would wake up soreand stiff, and think, how unfit I am. So I would push myself harderuntil I was unable to sleep or unable to function very well at all. I couldn't get out of beda lot of the time. Overwhelming fatigue. Just really felt like I had a bad fluall the time.
Osteoarthritis vs rheumatoid arthritis symptoms
In talkingabout the different symptoms between osteoarthritisand rheumatoid arthritis, I think my obsession with colorcoding will really pay off so we'll have red for rheumatoid arthritis and green for osteoarthritis. We'll talk about allthe different symptoms but I want to make thisa logical discussion so thinking back to thecause of these two diseases
and why it is that theyare different in symptoms. In rheumatoid arthritis, it'salways going to be autoimmune so the body's attacking itself, it's a whole body kind of process whereas in osteoarthritis,we're dealing with overuse. Usually in elderly people orpeople carrying extra weight weighing down their joints. Okay, first, before thedifferences, let's just quickly
go over the commonalitiesand why it's important to distinguish thembecause people will come in complaining of the same things. Pain, number one, their joints hurt. Both of these can be painful, they can also involve stiffness. The quality and timingwith it will be different but they'll both tell youthat their joints feel stiff
and they can't use them well. So with that, they mightavoid using their limbs, might lead to muscular weakness. Weakness, loss of function, and this weakness and loss of function and inability to do thethings they like to do might actually have indirecteffects on their mood, for example, depression is common
because both of these are chronic diseases so depression, risk for heart disease and other things froma sedentary lifestyle are all things to consider. So the point of this is whenpatients come in and tell you, quot;my joints hurt,quot; make sureto not leave it at that and keep asking the questionsto distinguish the two. The first question you mightask is, quot;Where does it hurt,
quot;which jointséquot; And here a very important featurethat distinguishes the two is gonna be the fact thatin rheumatoid arthritis, we have symmetry between the left side and the right side of the body. For example, when a personwith RA comes in and tells you, quot;my shoulders hurt,quot; it'sgoing to be shoulders, left and right.
