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.
Joints Crash Course AP 20
I am so glad that you guys are not five yearsold! If you were all in, like, kindergarten, theonly way I could teach you about your skeletal system would be to sing you that stupid song. You know, â€œThe toe bone's connected tothe foot bone, the foot bone's connected to the ankle bone.the ankle bone's connectedto the leg bone.â€� Like apparently there's one leg bone. For the purposes of teaching collegelevelanatomy and physiology, let's just say that that song is â€¦ reductive.
Insufficient. For that song to be at all useful for rememberingall 206 bones that make up your skeletal structure, it would have to begin with something like:â€œThe distal phalanx is connected to the middle phalanx â€¦â€� and then end with somethinglike: â€œthe frontal bone meets the parietal bone along the coronal suture.â€� And it would probably take like two and ahalf hours to sing the whole thing. But there is way more to know about your skeletalsystem than just the names of the bones. In addition to bones, there's cartilage and fibrousconnective tissue that allows them to work together.
And maybe more importantly, if you're goingto gonna talk about the physiology of your skeleton, you have to talk about joints. Joints are the meeting places between two ormore bones and even though it might not sound mathematically possible, you actually havemore joints in your body than you have bones. In a lot of places like your hands andfeet each individual bone is part of more than one or two joints. And then there's the matter of what allthat bone, cartilage, connective tissue and the joints that they form actually worktogether to do.
And that is â€¦ move. Body movements happen when muscles contractacross joints, moving one bone toward another. And studying the different types of movementsyour body is capable of, is not only pretty fun, it's also one of the best practicalways to understand your bones and joints. If you ask me, all of that is infinitely moreinteresting than memorizing what goes where and pretending like a â€œbackboneâ€� is reallyan anatomical structure. So. Aren't you glad you're a grownupé Dont worry, it's not anyone you knew. It's plastic, andit's a little bit smaller than the average adult skeleton.
But other than having me stand in frontof a giant xray machine for 10 straight minutes I can't think of a better way to walk you throughthe major anatomical structures of your skeleton. Now, if you managed to retain our introductionto human bones last week, you'll recall that anatomists typically divide the skeletoninto two major parts: the axial and the appendicular. The axial structure includes all 80 midline bones thatform your skull, vertebral column, and thoracic cage. Starting at the top here, your skull's eightcranial and fourteen facial bones form your body's most complex bony structure, comingtogether to do some pretty great things, like protect your brain, help you see, smell, hear,eat, and you know, have a face.
The 33 irregular bones in your vertebral columnstart with your atlas vertebra the one that holds up your skull, and is named for the Greek god Atlas,who held the world on his shoulders as a punishment. I'm not saying you've got a huge head or anything.I'm just saying that's what it's called. The vertebrae run down from your skull toyour pelvis, providing the central support for your upper body and completing the enormouslyimportant job of protecting your spinal cord the main communication line between nearlyall of your body, and your brain. Most of your vital organs are protected bythe 12 pairs of ribs and daggerlike sternum that together comprise your thoracic cage,which also provides attachment points for
Explain my Knee Arthritis Xray
Hi, it's Centeno. And today we're going tofocus on new research that shows that your kneexray is probably pretty useless in diagnosingwhy your knee hurts, or at least it's not asvaluable as we once thought. Now, this may come as acomplete surprise to you because xrays andMRIs are commonly
used by physicians to makethe diagnosis of arthritis and then conclude thatthat's why the knee hurts. So if we look at thestandard xray grading scale, we can see that it goesfrom normal to mild to moderate to severearthritis on an xray. And it would bevery, very attractive to say that this gradingscale equals pain,
meaning the more arthritisyou have on the xray the more your knee has to hurt. Regrettably, a lot of researchnot just the little bit of research I'll go over heretoday, but a lot of research has shown that that'snot the case at all. So this will look at a new studyof the pain marker called NPY. And the name of themarker isn't really that important NPYis neuralpeptide Y
but it's just thatthere is a marker that you can get out of theknee that correlates well with knee pain. And that's the citation of therecent research on this pain marker. And what's reallyinteresting is that if you look at the levels of thispain marker in the knee there's a veryelegant association
between the levels ofthis pain marker and pain that people report. So that's the levelif you are healthy. This is the level if youhave some osteoarthritis but no pain. This is the level if you havemild pain and knee arthritis. This is the level ifyou have moderate pain and then strong painand then severe pain.
So you can see this very elegantrelationship between the amount of pain that peopleare reporting and the levels of thispain marker in their knee. On the contrary, though, if welook at the amount of arthritis that's on an xray likewe just did and then track that versus this pain markerwhich is directly associated to how much pain people arereporting, here's what we see. So that's the amountof pain marker
