Hip Impingement

Our hip joints bear most of the bodyweight and allow us to move, run, walk and jump. It generally is a very flexible joint, but it loses the ability to perform these functions because of trauma or repetitive movements. 

This condition is called femoral acetabular impingement (FAI) or hip impingement, causing stiffness, pain, and early hip osteoarthritis.

The pain and stiffness worsen with bending the hip or waist during seemingly simple activities like riding a bike, bending to tie the shoes, or sitting for a long time.

One of the best ways to manage this condition is doing hip impingement exercises. In this article, we'll review the recommended exercises as well as hip impingement exercises to avoid.

Muscle Tear

Muscle tears are a common injury that can happen to anyone, from athletes to older people. 

Muscle tears may occur doing various daily tasks but are more common during strenuous exercise or other physical activity such as hiking, jumping, and even working in the garden or carrying heavy loads during housework. 

Due to the extensive mechanical stress, muscle fibers tear, leaving the person in pain and reduced range of motion. 

A torn muscle can be affected by a mild or severe injury and might take from a few weeks to months of recovery. That's why it's crucial to take measures to prevent those injuries as well as consult a professional and follow rehabilitation protocols. 

Let's take a closer look at the symptoms, risk factors, treatment, and prevention of torn muscles.

Millions of people of all ages in the U.S. and worldwide suffer from back pain. Acute pain is pain caused by some trauma or minor injuries and goes away without much intervention. 

Chronic back pain, though, is pain that persists for over 12 weeks, and about a fifth of people with acute pain develop chronic back pain eventually, too. 

A pain that lasts for so long negatively impacts people's lives, preventing them from doing various tasks and enjoying otherwise simple activities or sports. 

Luckily, chronic back pain treatment is available for those who seek it with today's medical advancements.  

Unfortunately, no matter how much we might wish, life doesn't go back to normal right away after surgery.

Either if you had a simple routine operation or you suffered a traumatic car accident, you will need some time to get back on your feet and function as usual.

Post-surgery rehabilitation can speed your recovery up immensely and ensure the treatment and surgery's success. 

Physical therapy (PT) is a big part of the post-operative rehabilitation process and helps patients regain strength, mobility, and confidence. It includes various techniques that target specific body areas, including stretches, exercises, hands-on therapy, and other modalities. 

Let's take a look at how physical therapy can help and what else you should consider.

If you've never heard of first rib mobilization, we're not surprised as the condition, and its treatment have not been given enough attention or research. 

However, the first rib issue is an often overlooked cause of neck, shoulder pain, headaches, tingling, numbness of the arm, and decreased range of motion. 

These problems occur when the first rib is elevated, which can happen because of trauma, like after a car accident, poor posture, repetitive motions, sleeping on the stomach, and similar situations. 

Let's look into the first rib, 1st rib mobilization, and how it can help improve the quality of life for many patients.
