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.
Why Cant We Reverse Nerve Damage
Every year, tens of millions of Americanssuffer from nerve damage, some irreparably so. Science can heal bones, grow new organsand even restore our microbiomes, but why is it so hard to fix our nervesé Hey guys Lissette here for DNews The human body posses a remarkable abilityto heal. Bones refuse, skin wounds mend, and the immune system adapts to infection,after infection. But there's one area of the body that struggles to recover after aninjury: The nervous system. Nerve damage can be some of the most debilitating and permanenttype of injury.
The nervous system is an incredibly complexnetwork used to send electrical information throughout your body. It can basically bedivided into two sections. With the brain and spinal cord making up the central nervoussystem or CNSâ€¦. and the nerves made up of fibers of sensory and motor neurons comprisingthe peripheral nervous system. Each cell in the nervous system from the tipof your finger up your arm, up your spinal column, into your brain, is very specialized.And each has a unique function on the pathway, like a circuit. If one these gets cut or injured,it's hard for an exact replacement cell to be put in in the right spot. Think aboutwhen you get a cut on your skin. If the cut
goes deep enough, exact replicas of cellswon't cover the wound, instead fibrous tissues form. which we call scars. And scars arepart of the problem in regrowing nerves, they often get in the way especially in the caseof spinal cord injuries. As part of the CNS, spinal cord injuries are notoriously difficultto heal; partially because of the way nerve cells in the CNS are made. According to the book, â€œResults and Problemsin Cell Differentiationâ€�, the CNS also has certain proteins that weirdly, inhibit cellregeneration. While this might sound like a bad idea, it's hugely beneficial overallto the formation of the CNS. These cells need
to grow exactly where they are supposed to,just one out of place could be bad. Like. think of an electrical circuit, each unithas to be in a specific order in specific place to work. If one is out of place, theintegrity of the CNS is compromised. Neurons in the CNS also lack certain cleaningcells. Nerve cells are made up of many parts, but they send signals through threads coveredin a protective sheet of myelin. These threads are called axons. Axons are the long partof the cell that reaches out to the cell next to it to send information down the line.Like arms handing the bucket down the line in a bucket brigade. So these are obviouslysuper important and need protecting. That's
where the Schwann cells come in. which areonly found in the Peripheral nervous system. Schwann cells, which aren't neurons butGLEEL cells, produce the myelin that help protect the axons. But, a study publishedin The Journal of Cell Biology found they also clean up damaged nerves making wayfor the healing process to take place and new nerves to be formed. But the problem is.these Schwann cells are missing from the CNS. What they have instead are myelin producingcells called oligodendrocytes. But these cells don't clean up damaged nerve cells at all.Which is part of the problem. So unfortunately, according to RichardG. Fessler professor at Rush University Medical
Center quot;There are currently no therapies whichsuccessfully reverse the damagequot; from injuries to the spinal cord. But research is currentlyunderway to examine the potential success of stem cell treatment, where stem cells areinjected directly at the injury site. Still, it will take a few years to see the resultsof such trials. But there are times your body can regeneratenerves. The peripheral nervous system doesn't have the same blocking proteins that the CNShas, and Schwann cells help heal the damage. So it's able to regrow nerves, albeit slowly.For instance, if you cut a nerve into your shoulder, it could take a year to regrow.By that time.the muscles in your arms could
IT Band Syndrome and Knee Pain HOW TO FIX IT
What's up, guysé Jeff Cavaliere, ATHLEANX.COM. Today I want to talk to you about a pain thata lot of people will get either running or jumping or biking or when they're lifting,particularly on a squat at the bottom of a squat that runs usually on the outside of your thigh.It can feel really really tight and can burn and be very painful, or right here on theoutside of your knee. You may have been told that what you haveis IT Band Syndrome, iliotibial band syndrome, and that's not the right diagnosis.
If you sit here, and I see it all the time,I see people grab a foam roller here, get on that side of that leg like this, make allkinds of faces because it really does hurt, and they think they're fixing their problemwhen all they're doing is actually making it worse because as you're going to find outtoday, the IT band is not something that you canchange the tension in by directly attacking the IT band. This is just a tendinous structure that actuallyhas the ability to resist up to a thousand pounds of force so if you think that puttingyour own body weight on top of a foam roller,
or I don't care if you want to break up alittle frost balls, anything to do anything to change what's going on in that IT band. However, if you understand where the IT bandis in your body and what it actually does, then you can start to figure out that maybethere's a better way to go after it. The IT band is actually going to sort of mirrorthis line on my pants here. It's that big, thick tendinous band that goes down, again, the lateral aspect of my thigh and it insertshere onto my tibia past my knee joint. So, the things that happen here though isthat we have muscles that feed into it. So
we have primarily the TFL, the tensor fascialata that's up here in the hip, and I'll show you exactly where it is becausewe're going to need to attack that if we want to fix IT Band Syndrome once and for all. And we also have a lateral aspect of our quads,so our vastus lateralis. We have our glut max that feeds into it from back here. We even have posterior hamstrings becauseagain, if you look at this white line, it feeds right into the white line from backbehind. And again, as I said, the quads feed intoit from up top. Well, all those muscles and
primarily the ones from the top here, againespecially the TFL, it uses this IT Band as its own tendinousattachment to the lateral aspect of our knee. So, you're not going to change the tensionin the tendon by going after the tendon. But you can change the tension in the tendonby going after the muscle that attaches or feeds that tendon. And that's what we wantto spend all of our time doing. So if you're getting pain, like I said, whenrunning or biking or jumping or in that bottom portion of a squat, and you don't know what'scausing it, then you better start looking up here in thehip and especially the TFL if you want to
start making some changes. So here's the twostep plan for you to reallyattack that. Most of the time, I find that the two biggest offenders of this IT Bandare going to be that lateral aspect of the quad, because a lot of times quads will get very,very tight on most people especially those that are doing those activities I just mentioned,and also really big, this TFL. So the TFL actually, this is what it sortof looks like, or where it is. I'll stand up a little bit here and I'll drop the drawersa little bit, but the idea is that right here
