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.
TMJ and Myofascial Pain Syndrome Animation
The temporomandibular joint â€“ the TMJ isthe joint between the lower jawbone the mandible and the temporal bone of the skull.The TMJ is responsible for jaw movement and enables chewing, talking and yawning. Temporomandibulardisorders, or TMD, refer to a group of conditions characterized by pain in the jaw area andlimited movement of the mandible. TMD may be caused by problems in the joint itselfor in the muscles surrounding the joint. Problems in the joint include: arthritis, inflammationand internal derangements. When the problem is in the muscles, the condition is calledmyofascial pain syndrome. Myofascial pain syndrome is very common andcan occur in patients with a normal temporomandibular
joint. The syndrome is characterized by presenceof hyperirritable spots located in skeletal muscles called trigger points. A trigger pointcan be felt as a nodule of muscle with harder than normal consistency. Palpation of triggerpoints may elicit pain in a different location. This is called referred pain.Trigger points are developed as a result of muscle overuse. Commonly, the muscles of chewing,or mastication, are overworked when patients excessively clench or grind their teeth unconsciouslyduring sleep. The medical term for this condition is â€œnocturnal bruxismâ€�. A trigger pointis composed of many contraction knots where individual muscle fibers contract and cannotrelax. The sustained contraction of muscle
sarcomeres compresses local blood supply,resulting in energy shortage of the area. This metabolic crisis activates pain receptors,generating a regional pain pattern that follows a specific nerve passage. The pain patternsare therefore consistent and are well documented for various muscles.Trigger points in the masseter refer pain to the cheeks, lower jaw, upper and lowermolar teeth, eyebrow, inside the ear and around the TMJ area. Trigger points in the temporalisare also associated with headache and toothache from upper teeth. The main culprits of myofascialpain in the TMJ area are the pterygoid muscles. Trigger points in medial pterygoid refer painto the TMJ region in front of the ear, inside
the mouth and upper outside of the neck. Theymay also manifest as sore throat and difficulty swallowing. Pain from lateral pterygoid triggerpoints can be felt in front of the ear and on the upper jaw.Treatments aim to address bruxism, to relieve muscle spasm and release trigger points. Treatmentoptions include: Therapies: stress management, behavior therapy,biofeedback to encourage relaxation. Dental night guards: Splints and mouth guards to protect the teeth from damage. Medication: pain relievers, muscle relaxants,botox injections. Trigger points release techniques such asneedling and â€œspray and stretchâ€�.
KT Tape Full Knee Support
This technique is for general knee pain, this may be caused by tendonitis, bursitis, or instability and this is how we tape for it. For the first segment of this application I am going to have you straighten your knee down and tear an Istrip off that roll and tear that paper in the middle of the tape, and when we stretch this middle portion we are going to stretch it nice and evenly and where I would like you to place that tape is just below the bottom part of the kneecap, or the inferior pole of the patella (so over this tendon right here); full tension, go ahead and lay the ends down like you are going to come up the side of the knee and go ahead and pinch that off and rub that on well. From there bend the knee up to about 90 degrees and just lay those tails down without any tension on the tails.
Go ahead and leave that knee bent up, and she will create a little friction with that paper to make sure that glue adheres. Take another Istrip, and this time you are going to tear the anchor down by the logo end of the tape and we are going to place that about an inch or so below that first application, and before you lay that down make sure that the tape is going to angle right on the side of your knee right on the side of the joint there. Make sure that anchor is rubbed on good no tension on that anchor. Make sure that anchor is rubbed on good no tension on that anchor. Peeling that paper back, leaving yourself about an inch at the end to hold onto (you're going to want to make sure you are not making contact with the adhesive with your hands)
and you are going to bring that up trying to make as much contact with skin as we can, and laying that tape down rub that on. The last inch or two we are going to just peel off the paper and lay that down without any tension. Again a little friction with the paper make sure that glue adheres. Now we are going to tear one more Istrip and you are going to tear off the anchor end down by the logo on the tape. This time we are going to do a very similar technique to that second strip just kind of a mirror image. So we are just anchoring below the knee to the outside of the shin peeling that paper off, pulling as you come across the side of the knee fairly good tension on that tape, but just as you get above that knee let's go ahead and stop pulling tension and just lay the very end of the tape down with no tension.
And using that paper the waxy side, we are going to rub that tape on really good. That knee bends quite a bit with activity we want to make sure that tape is adhering very well. Ok, lets straighten that knee down and see how we did that looks excellent, and you are ready to go!.
