Injury Prevention Exercises for Swimmers

Injury Prevention Exercises for Swimmers


Hi there! I’m Chloe Sutton. I’m a two-time
Olympian and the first American woman to swim open water in the Olympics. Now I
started training at an elite level from about age 11 and I would do anywhere
from 80,000 to 100,000 meters per week in the pool. Now that’s
62 miles per week and that’s a lot of training and that’s a lot of strain on
your shoulders, but over the course of 15 years, I never had any shoulder injuries
of any kind and I attribute this to having a shoulder stabilization routine
that I would do after every workout. Now today I’m going to share with you five
exercises that I believe will help you keep your shoulders safe and healthy
through a long career. The first exercise is an external
rotation to strengthen the rear part of the rotator cuff. Anchor the theraband
to a pole and then rotate your arm away from your body while maintaining a
90-degree angle in your elbow. Another exercise that strengthens the
rear part of the rotator cuff as well as the upper back is shoulder extensions.
Keeping the theraband anchored, hold it in your hand extended down with your
arms slightly in front of you. Then drive your arm back while keeping your arm
straight. Next is a low row to strengthen the
muscles that hold the scapula in the proper position. This helps to correct
poor posture. Again anchor the theraband to a pole, this time taking both sides in
your hands. Then pull your elbows directly back being sure to squeeze your
shoulder blades together each row. Now we’re going to stabilize the
shoulder joint by writing the alphabet with a tennis ball against the wall.
Lean slightly forward so you have a little bit of weight on the tennis ball
to keep it in place. Then move your whole arm keeping your elbow straight and
your shoulders down while drawing the alphabet. The last exercise is arm raises. With
this exercise we’re working on the part of the rotator cuff that lifts the arm. Stand with good posture, then lift your arms slightly in front of you keeping
your arms straight. Focus on keeping your chest lifted and your shoulder blades
retracted. Once you feel confident with this
exercise, you may also add a light weight So if you guys do these five exercises
after every workout, it will help to strengthen and stabilize your shoulders
and help you to have a long and healthy career. So thank you so much for watching, please subscribe to me on Youtube, and visit my website for more swimming tips.
Thanks so much and I’ll see you all soon.

How to Fill Out the FAFSA

How to Fill Out the FAFSA


The Free Application for
Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, is the application for grants,
loans, and work-study funds provided by
the federal government. It is also used by many
states and schools for their financial aid programs. For the fastest
and easiest way to apply, visit our official website,
fafsa.gov. The FAFSA is available
in English and Spanish. As you fill it out online you’ll
be able to automatically skip questions that don’t pertain
to you, check out your status immediately,
and get online help. It takes most people less
than 30 minutes to complete the application. You’ll need a
few things when you fill it out, so get ready by gathering your Social Security number, your Permanent Resident Card
if you have one, any W-2 forms or records
of money you earned for the previous year,
and your tax records. By the way, a nice time-saving
feature of the FAFSA is that many people are eligible
to automatically transfer their tax data from the IRS
into the FAFSA. So keep an eye out
while you’re applying, in case you’re
offered that option. If you have any questions about
what information to gather, there is a complete list of
documents that you will need at fafsa.gov. Before you begin the process
of filling out the FAFSA, you should create a user name
and password called an FSA ID that will act as your
electronic signature. You’ll only need to create an
FSA ID once; and you can use it to renew your FAFSA
each year that you apply. Your parents will need
an FSA ID too if they have to provide any information. So now you’re ready
to begin filling out the FAFSA to apply for financial aid. There are three groups
of questions that include personal information,
such as your name, address, and marital status; financial information,
such as your income; and any parent information
that is required. If you get hung up or confused
about a question, the “Help and Hints” box
on the right-hand side of the application can help with
each question as you move along. Also, look for the online chat
feature under “Help” if you would like assistance from
a knowledgeable agent. Because colleges and career
schools use the FAFSA to provide financial aid, you can list
up to 10 schools that you are interested in attending. You should list all of
the schools that you are considering, even if you haven’t
been accepted or applied yet. If you have more than 10 schools
in mind, you can submit your FAFSA with 10 schools and then
replace some of those schools with other schools later. When you finish filling out
the FAFSA, use your FSA ID to sign the form. If you are required to submit
parent information on your FAFSA, a parent will need to
sign the application with his or her own FSA ID as well. If you have any questions
or need more information, please visit StudentAid.gov.

yourself… So you too can find arthritis pain relief
– fast. Look – You’re obviously tired of repeatedly
treating your arthritis pain… You’ve likely tried a bucket-load of arthritis
pain treatments… And you’re sick of being told there’s
no quick cure… But listen – It’s not your fault! You’ve
simply been sold the old, conventional ways of Western medicine, of ‘Big Pharma’… You’ve only been taught to treat the symptoms
– not treat the cause – right?… So naturally, if you want a breakthrough,
you must change something, do something different – yes? Well – my mission is simply to help you change
the way you think… And when you change the way you think, you’ll
change the results you get – which is what you’re looking for – isn’t it? Look – this simple 2-minute technique works
in a totally different way… Heal the hidden emotional cause – and like
millions of regular folks around the world, you too can feel the rapid relief you’re
hoping for… So why on earth has nobody told you about
this – until now? See – here’s the deal…
By any traditional standards, this is a crazy cure for sure – for three very good reasons…
It sounds crazy… It looks crazy… And here’s the kicker – it works like crazy too…
Which is why they’re calling it A Crazy Cure… So even though it’s being proved, every
day, by people just like you… Because it challenges those conventional beliefs… Nobody else will know if you’re open-minded
enough to even give it a go… But look – these famous Doctors highly recommend
it… Deepak Chopra, MD says it -“Offers great healing
benefits.” Dr. Oz calls it – “The next big frontier
in medicine!” And Dr. Joe Mercola confirms it as – “A
major component of our treatment program.” So hand’s up who’s open-minded – and ready
for something NEW? … 3-Step EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques)
– or ‘Tapping’… A unique new combination of modern psychology
and the ancient Oriental healing art of acupressure… (That’s like acupuncture – without the
needles!) The combined effect is like re-booting your
body… Tapping points on your face and body with
your fingertips… Whilst speaking positively yet gently to your
subconscious mind… To clear your blocked energy channels, or
meridians… And ZAP the hidden emotional cause of your
problem… See – sounds crazy, doesn’t it? But wait!
It flat out works… And it’s not just for any one problem – so
you can try it on everything… Because, believe it or not, those negative
emotions we all experience every day… Like Stress, Unworthiness, Anger, Anxiety,
Frustration, Grief, Guilt, Blame, Shame, Bitterness, Resentment…
Are, in fact, your inner guidance system… Powerful indicators of limiting beliefs, definitions
or opinions of yourself, picked up throughout your life…
Hidden by your subconscious mind – and stuck in your body’s energy system…
Yes – those hidden, limiting beliefs are the proven root cause of your suffering…
Of all your health, wealth or relationship problems – and more…
Skeptical? I can understand that. Even the most open-minded people may be – until they
try this – and prove it for themselves! Listen – Chances are good that in a matter
of minutes, you’ll begin to feel relief faster than you ever dreamed possible… You see, ‘emotionally simple’ problems,
such as Aches, Pains, Anxieties, Allergies, Food Cravings, Phobias… Often fade away completely with the use of
Step 1 alone – sometimes, almost miraculously, with a single 2-minute session… Most likely, though, with a number of repetitions… So let’s find some relief right now, shall
we?… It’s time to dive in and test this Crazy
Cure for yourself… First though – the required legal disclaimer… IMPORTANT
3-Step EFT is a complementary therapy. It should not should be regarded as a medical
claim. For medical advice, you should consult a qualified health professional, and the techniques
described must not be used as a substitute for any treatment they recommend. In using
this information, you are responsible for your own actions. So now, pick a ‘simple’ problem to try
it on… Any ache or pain in your body, a feeling of
anxiety about a specific event, a food craving, simple allergy or phobia… Got one? OK. To help you appreciate your progress,
rate the current intensity of that problem, on a scale of zero to ten… Ten being the most intense possible, zero
being no more problem at all – which of course, is what we’re aiming for… My brief demonstration shows you how and where
to tap… Then you just follow-along to Step 1 – ‘Tap
The Problem’… So let’s go… Hello! And welcome to 3-Step EFT – A Crazy
Cure. In this short video presentation
I’m going to show you the tapping points that you need to use
in the Step-1 tap-along video. There’s 8 of them
and the first is on the side of the hand it’s the base of the palm
the fleshy part of the hand, often known as the karate chop point
where you would karate chop a piece of wood! So taking the
fingers of the other hand, 1,2, 3 even 4 – whatever feels comfortable to you
as with all the tapping points, just tap gently – whatever feels comfortable to you
the next point is the top of the head – right on
the crown just tapping gently, and then you move down
to the eyebrow point which is between the two eyebrows – right in the middle there…
Next is the side of the eye – on the bone parallel with the eye there, and then
underneath the eye – the under the eye point –
on the bone just there. Next is the collarbone point – you have two collar
bones topping on either side – right there…
Then moving down to the breastbone point The breastbone runs down the body and at
the base there’s little indentation which is known in acupressure as the Sea
of Tranquility so you just tap gently on there… Then finally
we have the Fingertips Point. The meridians in the body
run down to the end of the fingertips, so you
put your fingers together with your thumb underneath, encircle it
with your other hand and squeeze gently on the fingertips.
Whilst you’re doing that you take a deep breath – in and out.
And that’s it… those are the simple tapping points you need
to use for the Step-1 Video. Ok. Now you know the 8 simple tapping points,
bring your problem to mind… Create a simple phrase for your specific symptom,
to fill in the blanks as you tap-along to Step 1 – for example… “I have this splitting headache”, “I
have this lower back pain”, “I feel anxious about my test”, “I have this chocolate
craving”, “I have this fear of spiders”, “I have these itchy eyes”… Now, check the intensity again, from zero
to ten… Done that? Great. Now relax, and tap-along
with me… Speak the words out loud, and fill in the
blanks for your specific problem… Let’s tap… 3-Step EFT Step 1 – Tap The Problem.
First – Rate the intensity of your problem or negative emotion from zero to ten. Now
tap… SH: “Even though [problem/emotion], I know,
inside, that I’m OK…” SH: “Even though [problem/emotion], I know,
inside, that I’m OK…” SH: “Even though [problem/emotion], I know,
inside, that I’m OK…” SH: “I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank
you, I love you…” FT: Breathe and feel relief… “RELIEF!”
TH: “Letting go of [problem/emotion]…” EB: “It’s OK to let go of [problem/emotion]…”
SE: “It’s safe to let go of [problem/emotion]…” UE: “Please let go of [problem/emotion]…”
CB: “Please let go of [problem/emotion]…” BB: “I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank
you, I love you…” FT: Breathe and release… “RELEASE!”
SH: “I now prefer to feel aligned, inspired and peaceful inside…”
SH: “I now prefer to feel aligned, inspired and peaceful inside…”
SH: “I now prefer to feel aligned, inspired and peaceful inside…”
SH: “I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you, I love you…”
FT: Breathe and feel peace… “PEACE!” Well Done! Now rate the intensity again – on
that same 0-10 scale. Did you feel some relief already? I do hope so… Did you find yourself yawning – or even
giggling? That’s your energy shifting… Although ‘emotionally simple’ problems
often fade away quickly as you tap, sometimes they take a few sessions to clear completely… So don’t give up – take a break, drink
a glass of water… Then continue – tap along again, as often
as you need… You can join me, free, at ACrazyCure.com… You’ll receive powerful hints and tips to

Dog First Aid : How to Care for a Dog’s Torn Toe Nail

Dog First Aid : How to Care for a Dog’s Torn Toe Nail


So I am going to demonstrate for you how you
would bandage a torn toenail from a dog. We are working with Ty here and he has torn his
right dewclaw. Dewclaw is the nail that is upside on the leg and he has torn that completely
off. So first thing that we want to do is you can see that the hair around the dewclaw
is a little bit matted and the first thing we need to do is clean that area up. We need
to brush that hair out. Now you can shave the area if you want to. I am trying to save
the coat so I am just going to brush this area out. It is going to tender and sore so
I am being very careful to hold the hair away from the skin so I don’t hit the skin with
the brush
and it is actually matted like this because he has been licking it. Ty stop. I am going
to expose the area. Put your head down. Okay, put your head down. Okay you can see that
it is a little bit red and raw here, the area that he has been licking; the area around
the dewclaw that is missing and in fact I will scissor the hair away from this area;
make it a little bit easier to work. Okay he is very obvious sensitive in this area
so I am going to work carefully.
So this is the dewclaw here. It is a little bit swollen. The dewclaw itself is actually
missing. We are going to clean this area out here. I am going go use some Betadyne from
my first aid kit; some Betadyne and cotton. If you can leave a wound like this open for
the air to heal, that is always better but if the dog is worrying it, licking it and
causing it to swell up like this then we really do need to close it off. Before we close it
off though, I want to clean it out.

How to Make a First Aid Kit : Electrolyte to Include in Your First Aid Kit

How to Make a First Aid Kit : Electrolyte to Include in Your First Aid Kit


For certain trips for example if you’re going
into the dessert for a hiking up in the mountains, in the dessert, if your going for long long
camping trips in areas where it’s very humid or hot and you are doing a lot of sweating
or even if you’re just doing some exercise that causes you a lot of sweating and loosing
a lot of fluid then you want to replenish your electrolytes, that’s your sodium, your
potassium, your glucose in your body to prevent any dehydration. So, if you can get hold of
these packages or anything that this is, for example, is called oral rehydration salts
that would be very good to include into your kit. I will show you how to use this but you
can also get this in tablet form, too. So, basically tablet form is a compressed form
of the loose powder and this is the loose powder form. And, in this package it contains
sodium chloride, which is the chemical name for salt, potassium chloride, and glucose.
So,here it says, directions: How to Use. Very simple, it says dissolve in 1 liter drinking
water. But, for example, sometimes kids don’t like to drink things that taste icky, so you
can also put it in orange juice, any kind of juice, fruit juice, and let it dissolve
in there and you really wouldn’t tast it at all. So, it’s, the kids are more inclined
to drink it. But, anyway here, it’s very simple, I’ll show you. You just get a liter of water,
but here we just got a sample, a cup of water, and of course this is when a pair of scissors
comes in handy because it you don’t have a pair of scissors I guess you’ll have to resort
to using your teeth. But, which I am going to do but I don’t have strong teeth. So, if
we, if we, if we can find a pair of scissors, which we should have, oh, here it is, so here
see, pair of scissors, I told you is very important item. If you don’t have strong teeth
like me so, very easy, open it up, and here we go. We will then just pour into the water
and give it a stir and this is when if you have a depressor if you don’t have any sort
of like catheter, you can always improvise, that’s why it’s always good if you can get
one of these tongue depressors in your kit because you can always use it as a stirer.
See, so these things in the kit, these items, you can improvise and use them, it’s like
survival techniques so here we go, this is my stirer and let it dissolve and I’m going
to taste it. See what it tastes like. I haven’t tried this brand, let’s see. See what it tastes
like, it’s better to have ice.
Yes, it’s better to put into orange juice or something that’s sweet because it’s like
drinking a pot of salt. But, it’s good for you though when you’re dehydrated. You don’t
want to end up in the ER, right, so, alright, there we go. Rehydration.

How to Travel with your Dog : Learn About a Traveling First-Aid Kit for Dogs

How to Travel with your Dog : Learn About a Traveling First-Aid Kit for Dogs


Hi! This is Elise McMahon for Expert Village
and in this video series we’re talking about how to travel with your dog. If you would
like to find out more about my services you can visit my website at canineheadstart.com.
So we’re talking a little bit about first aid kits. It’s a really good idea when you’re
traveling with your dog to bring your first aid kit, the canine first aid kit with you,
a lot of the things you’re going to find in there are in fact very similar to what
you would be putting in your very own first aid kit. Just I have got of couple of items
out here. It’s always good to have everything together in the bag, some sort of bag it doesn’t
have to be a bag setup specifically for canines but having stuff together and some sort of
bag that you can just grab and go and then you’re not running around the house trying
to gather everything at the last minute. So here I’m just going to go over the couple
of the things. This is oral electrolytes, if you’re out hiking with your dog in the
summer time and you need to replenish electrolytes, it’s always a good idea to have some electrolytes
on you. We also carry them around for ourselves and don’t always think about the dogs. Also
here we’ve got an antiseptic anti-itch spray so again this would be more sort of the summer
time travel with your dog but if you get your dog to a place that there’s a lot of biting
bugs and or the dog is stressed and he’s chewing on himself, this is always a good
thing to have, some anti-itch spray. If your dog cuts or injures himself couple of things
you’re going to want to have in hand, this is iodine, this is a Betadine skin cleaner
and you also will want to have some pads and tape if your dogs cuts themselves and really
good handy thing to use with dogs is vet wrap, it’s called vet wrap and this is actually
a self adhesive tape. So you unpeel it there’s no glue here at all, you want to unpeel it
and then when you wrapping it back around it just stays. So this is a really good thing
to have on hand as well as the gauze pads. If your dog injures himself on the foot let’s
say you are hiking with your dog or you are walking in the city and it cuts his pad you
might want to have some sort of soft boot. You can wrap the foot up and make sure the
dog doesn’t take the foot wrapping off. You can put the pad, the foot in a boot. You’re
going to want to make sure you have got a boot that fits your dog’s foot. Tweezers
are always the good thing to have on hand if your dog is in a place and for some reason
their ears get irritated having an ear cleanser or cotton and an ear ointment on hand, it
should always be in your first aid kit, having a small towel is a good idea to carry on your
first aid kit and then also obviously a thermometer you want to have a thermometer with you in
your first aid kit.

Dog First Aid : Dog First Aid Kit Advice & Tips

Dog First Aid : Dog First Aid Kit Advice & Tips


So to go over with you the items, we’ve got
our scissors,
thermometer and you want to make sure that you clearly marked that this is a dog thermometer
so that you don’t accidentally use it on humans. You want to have tape and make sure that you
actually have tape in here and you are going to have gauze that you can use to turn into
gauze pads. You can make your own gauze pads as well as vet wrap. Vet wrap is a great material
to use. It is self-adhesive so you want to have your vet wrap available. You should have
something that you can use as a muzzle to close the dogs mouth if you need to. You can
actually use a real muzzle or just some piece of material cloth that you can use to keep
the dogs mouth closed. You need to have a very good supply of cotton balls, Vaseline
to use with your thermometer, Hydrogen Peroxide. Hydrogen Peroxide you are going to use if
your dog is eaten or ingested something and need to make him vomit. Rubbing alcohol, Betadyne,
cough syrup, your care solution, activated charcoal and you can get this from most drug
stores. Not something most people typically have in their house, ear ointment; that’s
all that we have in here. You want to make sure that you have your list ready and available
and make sure that you get all of the stuff and you have one central place that you can
keep everything so that when there is an emergency and you need to give first aid to your dog,
you have everything in place and is easily found and you don’t have to think about running
around the house and locating it.

First Aid for Anaphylaxis : Anaphylactic Emergency Treatment

First Aid for Anaphylaxis : Anaphylactic Emergency Treatment


Now I am going to cover how we would go about
treating an anaphylactic reaction. Now some of the things I will cover here are specific
to where we work in Sedona and it may very from place to place. Again I want to emphasize
this is just for trained medical personnel and I am just showing you as a demonstration
so that you can get an understanding of how some of this might work. Now I am going to
start here. In this we have all of our airway products. And as I mentioned earlier our biggest
concern with anaphylactic reaction is the patient keeping an open airway and that the
patient is going to breathe okay. After that we want to be concerned about their circulation.
Make sure that their blood pressure stays high enough so that they can circulate. So
in this box on just about every patient that is having any type of difficulty breathing
our first priority is going to be to get them oxygen. Now we have our oxygen cylinder here.
Then in here we have different devices that can deliver the oxygen. Now it rages from
a nasal cannula; a nasal cannula is just a small one that sits in the nose. That’s for
low amounts of oxygen. And then we have a non breather mask and that is going to provide
a lot more oxygen. With anaphylacsis most likely we are going to go with the most amount
of oxygen that we can provide. So these are good when the patients breathing on their
own. If the patient gets worse and they are not able to breathe on their own we have here
what we call a bag valve mask so that we can breathe for the patient. And then also some
other thing that can help to make sure that their airway stays open. This kit’s a little
more advanced. If the patient were to go unconscious and not be able to maintain their own airway
in here we have a bag to where we can intubate the patient. Now intubation for those of you
that don’t know is where you put a tube down the patient’s airway and that way we can keep
the airway open and breath for the patient. That would be a worse case scenario. I guess
that would be progressively worst case scenario. The absolute worst case scenario would be
that this patient’s airways were to close completely and we would have to do a cricothyrotomy.
That’s where we would have to cut the throat and induce an airway that way. Without getting
too much into it though this is kind of a basic of the stuff that we provide. Next I
am going to go cover some of the medications that we carry and how we might treat them
that way.

Dog First Aid : Dangers of Kennel Cough in Dogs

Dog First Aid : Dangers of Kennel Cough in Dogs


So for a smaller breed dog, I would fill the
syringe to for 1/2 tablespoon. You would open the dogs mouth, open towards the cheek and
insert it in and then you can give them the cough syrup. Probably talk to your veterinarian
about how frequently you should give the cough syryup and most veterinarian’s do recommend
giving cough syrup for severe coughing. If your dog is continuing to cough and is getting
lethargic, then you might want to put the dog on antibiotics. Again, this is something
that your vet is going to determine but it is not uncommon to put your dogs on course
of antibiotics to make sure that it doesn’t become more serious infection. If yhou find
that your dog is very lethargic and breathing very shallowly, then you want to bring them
to the veterinarian specialist. They are probably going to take lung x-rays and test with oxygen
levels. If the dog is trying to avoid coughing when coughing becomes very uncomfortable,
the dog can start to avoid coughing by taking shallow breaths and the more shallow breath
they take, the less oxygen is coming in and it will actually reduce the level of blood
oxygen in their body. So if the case becomes very extreme, the dog might need some medical
attention. They might need to have oxygen placed inter nasally. They might need to be
on IV-fluids. A kennel cough can be something that is fairly mild and dogs get over in a
day or two and it can be something that will cause your dog to wind up in the hospital
for a couple of days and we just talked about a couple of things to do to help care for
them.

Dog First Aid : What is Kennel Cough?

Dog First Aid : What is Kennel Cough?


What is kennel cough. Probably everybody has
heard that and heard from vets and if you’ve boarded your dog, you’ve heard it from places
that you board but people may not have a really good idea what is kennel cough and how your
dog can get it. Kennel cough is an illness that is a combination of viral and bacterial
infections and dogs are likely to get kennel cough when they are in places where large
numbers of dogs congregate. Dog shows are very typical place. You have dogs coming from
all over the country and they are getting together. One dog may be sick and it spreads
very very quickly. It is highly contagious. Anther place you might come across kennel
cough would be in a dog park where again you have a large number of dogs coming together.
Boarding facilities are another place kennel cough can be very prevalent. So kennel cough
again, is a mixture, a combination of viral and bacterial infections. There are two types
of vaccinations that your veterinarian can give your dog. There is a inter nasal vaccination
and that is thought to last for up to about 6 months. There is also actually an injection
which is thought to last 6 to 12 months. The problem is that if the combination of viruses
and bacterial infections that are making up the kennel cough, the common word for the
dogs illness, is always changing so these vaccinations are not a 100 percent guaranteed.
Many times dogs have actually had the vaccination will come down with kennel cough. So the best
thing you can do is be aware of where you are taking your dog. Vaccinate if your veterinarian
specialist feels like the area you are in has a lot of kennel cough going around, watch
where you take your dog. If you are not sure about the health of other dogs are present
where your dog is, avoid contact with those dogs.
