*INTENSE TAILBONE PAIN* Relief with Gonstead Technique

*INTENSE TAILBONE PAIN* Relief with Gonstead Technique


(upbeat easy guitar music) – When you feel the pain, where do you feel it right now? You feel it down here and into the legs, but can you show me now, because now I’m just looking at your back. – Right here. – It’s all the way down there. So right here, that’s painful? – I have pain here. – [Doctor] Okay. – Right here. – [Doctor] Both sides? Both sides? – Yeah. – [Doctor] Okay.
– And here and here. Right now, I can’t do. – [Doctor] Okay. Any pain? – Little. – [Doctor] A little bit?
– Yeah. – Where is the pain when you do that? – Here. – Got it. You see how, like, how asymmetrical it is? Her pants are going like this, too, right? – When she come sit down, (speaking with heavy accent) sit down, going down. (grunts) Wake up, again. When you go to the bed, you go to the bed like this. – Every day? – Now, getting more– – I feel more better now. – It’s like, pain, I don’t know. – When I sit, I sit
over here, or over here. – Okay. So you’re trying
to avoid your tailbone. – Yeah. You’re so tilted in your pelvis, and your tailbone is shifting
off to the outside, right? So when you sit onto it, you’re sitting actually at
an angle on your tailbone. Yeah, got something right there, too. You feel it? Right there. Yeah, okay. Another one a little lower right there. So I get there, that’s painful right? – Mm-hmm. This is your, where your joint is, okay, your tailbone, okay? This is where your coccyx, it’s called a coccyx, meets your sacrum. Basically if I poke this side pretty hard, that’s not too bad, right? But if I go a little bit here, that hurts, right? – Mm-hmm.
– Yeah. It means it sprains out
onto that side, okay? So that’s why when I push on this side, it doesn’t really hurt, but if I push on that
side, it hurts, right? So what we’re gonna do
is actually close that. I’m gonna actually address
your tailbone today. So is that painful right there? – Mm-hmm.
– Yeah. – You sometimes get headaches, right? Right here? – Okay, so what we’re gonna do is actually adjust your
atlas over here, okay? So this is your very top bone, okay. Because you said it comes down into your
arms sometimes, right? And it’s really hard for you
to raise your arms, right? And so this nerve goes into, you said it actually goes
into your fingers, too, right? – Yeah, mm-hmm. – Which fingers do you feel- – This one. – Okay, mostly this one? – Mm-hmm. – And it’s when you move
your neck this way, right? And then sometimes it hurts your nerves all the way to your finger right? – Yeah.
– Yeah. So that’s what I’m saying is, we’re gonna adjust up here, so most of the rotation in your neck actually happens from up here. So if I fix that, it can help a lot with what she’s feeling going to the arm. Just watch. Do you feel that every day, the finger? – Yes, every day. – Every day, okay. So you let me know, do you feel it right now? – I feel right now. – Okay. So let’s adjust up here, okay? So, you ready? Okay, sounds good. – [Man] I can hold her. (both laugh) I’ll be quick. So I’m gonna be adjusting
this top one, okay? So I’ll show you really quick because I’m gonna be
pushing that over, okay? Chin up a little bit while
I’m (speaking softly) (neck cracks)
Good. Not too bad, right? – No. (laughs) – Good. How often do you get the
headaches, really quick? – For one year, almost every day. – Every day for a year? Okay, yeah, that’s not good. So that is definitely
gonna help you with that. What we’re gonna do, okay, so it’s sprained out over here, okay? So that’s where the swelling is. So what we’re gonna do
is actually adjust it and close it, okay? Actually it’s really swollen here, so I’m gonna basically just
get some of the swelling out. Okay. Breathe in. Okay. Good. Just relax. (bench pops) Good. That adjusted nice. That better? – Mm-hmm. – How’s the tailbone feeling? – Yeah, it feels– – Yeah, bend down. – Yeah. – Ready for Zumba? (woman laughs) – So your tailbone’s right here, right? It’s curved over to this side. So what I did was put my finger there and actually just twisted that around to actually close it. Feel better?
– Uh-huh – Yeah. – Thank you. – Tailbones should not get adjusted every single time that you come in. Let me know how that does the next time when you do come in, okay? (easy band music)

Back Pain Relief Exercises – Ask Doctor Jo


Hey everybody, it’s Doctor Jo. I’m gonna show
you some back extension exercises today in prone, or what you call “on your stomach.”
If you’re not comfortable lying on your stomach, I also have some videos with a swiss ball
and in quadruped, which is on all 4s. So if you think this is too uncomfortable for you,
you can go check those out. Let’s get started. So let’s roll on over get on to our stomachs.
You want to lay out as flat as you can. I’m gonna keep my head up while I’m talking to
you, but make sure you keep your head down in a neutral position so you don’t end up
stressing out your neck. The first one, the easy one is starting off with your arms. You’re
just going to raise it, slowly come back down, raise it, slowly come back down. So you can
just alternate back and forth and try about 10 of those. Then, if that’s pretty easy,
you can go down to your legs. Same thing, just raise it up, you don’t have to kick it
super high. Just enough to raise it off the ground. And alternate sides, back and forth.
Try about 10. If that get’s to be easy, then you can increase your repetitions and then
increase your sets. If those are easy, then you can start alternating sides. We call it
the swimmer cause it kind of looks like you’re swimming a little bit. So if the left arm
goes up, the right leg goes up. And then you just alternate back and forth. If you think
that’s easy. Then you can do what we call the Superman. And that’s lifting everything
up at the same time, just like this. Even though I’m a Wonder Woman girl, you can do
the Superman. Try and hold it for just a little bit if you can. And then come back down. And
then you can build up your time holding it up in the air. And then come back down. Those
were your back extension exercises in prone, on your stomach. If you have any questions,
leave them in the comments section. And if you’d like to check out some other videos,
like the quadruped or swiss ball exercises, go to AskDoctorJo.com Don’t forget to follow

soon.

Just one day I went to like lean down to take off my shoes Like I was coming home. I wanted to take off my shoes. The pain just like went from my lower back it shot like on top of my butt and I just fell on the floor and I was like oh this is bad. And so I took some time off. But then like no matter what I can lay in bed and I lean up to get out of bed No pressure on my back and it’s still hurts like crazy. Knees as well. Okay. Um Actually, let me have you stand up first. I want to go through some range of motion and I’ll go back So I want you to bend forward at the waist for me. Okay. What do you feel? Like as soon as I go to start moving it gets really tight it just starts to hurt and then I come all the way down then since to come back up, it’s like it makes it really hard. Gotcha. Yeah, it makes it to where I don’t want to move. Is the pain staying here? Does it never travel down the legs? Most of the time it stays in the back But sometimes it will travel like top of my butt Sometimes that’s not a lot. And if you were to bend back. Yeah, if I bend back it’s not that bad it’s like there’s a lot of pressure down there The pains different. It feels like a lot of pressure. All right, what about to the sides? That’s fine. What about rotation? It’s fine. Okay, let me get you the lay face down on the table All right, so we’re going to start off we’re going to scan the body we’re going to go from Cervical spine all the way down checking the leg length and I’ll check the symmetry from the right side to the left side. Okay Let me know if you have any pain or tenderness when I do this Okay So and I just bring the boots up checking the leg length. Yeah that right leg pulls short so It’s a good amount. Yeah, so I will work on this we’ll get this back balanced. Um Okay. So what we’re going to do is we’re going to use the device, relax everything, and then we’ll start with the adjustment So we’re going to start up top here. Deep breath in and out. Deep breath in and out. Ah that felt good. Okay, let me get you to sit up on the table and then straddle the table so one leg on the either side. Bring the other arm up and over here keep your thighs to the table First rotating like this look over the shoulder for me. Lay faced down for me, please Okay, so the right side is still pulling short Now we’re going to drop down to the sacrum here I’m gonna stabilize right here. I want you to raise your right leg up for me Any pain with that? Not really Relax Raise the left leg up Now, how does the left side feel compared to the right? That one feels hard. Yeah this one Yeah, I felt like that was pulling on my back more Okay, so I want you to cross that left foot over the right foot good Uncross and I’m gonna have you bend that knee. Good. Okay, raise that left leg up again for me, how does that feel? Like it’s pulling on my back. Getting better still pulling a little bit, let me have you lay on your side. Face me this way, please. Okay flip to the other side Flat on your back Come forward for me a little bit Yeah deep breath in and out Relax Yeah, yeah, I really want this done because Whenever as soon as I lay on the floor I can put my feet underneath it and I can lend my upper body on it and I can physically feel my lower back at the very bottom spreading apart but then it’s like it’s a wall it spreads apart and it feels like it needs to be yanked Yeah, and it needs that extra something and then I saw this and I was like I need to try this out. I hear ya, I hear ya Okay, did you play football in college? I did not I was uh, I really didn’t have the time I was doing engineering I mean I guess I could have Pretty big guy Oh, yeah, especially like going to Alabama like all the time. Relax right there deep breath in and out for me We’ll sit you up use that massager And we might have to do it one more time with that but we’ll check in a moment. Yeah I felt it from here up. I didn’t feel anything down here Yeah. Yeah, when I do it the second time I go in a little bit different angle I get a lot of lower, but you’ll see you won’t really notice But yeah, I get a lot lower and then we’ll do one more time. Usually, I’ll get just deeper in We’re gonna use that massage on everything. Okay? Yeah, like I stretch the muscles out so it doesn’t feel really tight Does that make sense? Oh, yeah, it does. If I push in here any pressure? No. If I push in here Um let me have you stand up Go through how we did in the beginning forward, backwards When I come forward it’s a little better. If I come back there’s still pressure down there. It’s at the very bottom, like it sounds weird, but I can lean and push right here I can’t do it right now but Yeah, and then I relieve some pressure like 30 minutes, but it starts again But uh, yeah, I mean when I lean forward it feels better it’s not stiff Side to side feel good. This feels more freed up And the back still a little bit of pressure when I lean back. Okay I want to do a few things. Lay face down for me. Actually, let me have you dropped down. Perfect right there. Oh that felt good. Sometimes just gotta do a little bit of different techniques, especially I mean like for you like you’re a big guy. So yeah I always have a lot pressure on my back. Direct pushing, that’s helping a lot. Come on up. How’s that feel? Oh that feels so much better. See not everyone follows like I always do the same kind of routine because I check like the same way like when I observe the body and I go through and I make the adjustments but as you can tell I mean at times you need some people need a little bit more. You did the Y-Strap it felt great from like here up It’s felt wonderful but I didn’t feel down below. That’s why I said when I lean back and push. As soon as you started doing the pushing I could feel that’s what felt really good. It happens. But it felt good yeah.

Fix Lower Back Pain In 2 EASY STEPS! (INSTANT RELIEF)

Fix Lower Back Pain In 2 EASY STEPS! (INSTANT RELIEF)


Hey, what’s up guys Scott Herman here from muscularstrength.com now Whether you’re doing deadlifts squats Overhead pressing rowing or even curling many of you are finding it difficult to lift heavy weights or increase the intensity of your workouts because of lower back pain But that doesn’t necessarily mean that you have a weak lower back Granted there could be some form issues here that need to be dealt with some of the exercises I just mentioned But any part of your body is going to stop bothering you if you’re constantly abusing it with training and neglecting recovery or stretching Constant abuse equals tight muscles guys, and it’s that constant tension That’s causing all kinds of issues for you as well as your lower back pain So I’m going to provide you with two easy fixes that Everyone can do before and after their workouts to open up and relax the lumbar spine as well as the surrounding muscles so that you can progressively Overload with heavier weights without worrying about taking a trip to snap city So the first fix is taking the lower back through its natural range of motion This is important because if your lower back does not have full mobility across all planes of motion This means flexion extension and rotation Training with these limitations can lead to a serious injury so with that in mind I want you guys to drop to the floor so we can perform an alternating toe to hand touch Followed by a scorpion to do a toe to hand touch guys start off by laying with your back on the floor Next lift your right leg into the air and then twist and rotate your right leg towards your left hand While trying to keep your torso in contact with the floor the entire time Try to really feel the twist and stretch across the lower back and mid-back while opening up your thoracic spine Then repeat with the opposite leg and continue to go back and forth for 10 to 12 reps Always staying in control of the movement then as soon as you’re done You’re going to roll over onto your stomach and perform the same movement Of trying to bring your left foot to your right hand and then alternating with that same motion using your other leg This is called a scorpion, and you will again repeat this for 10 to 12 repetitions This combo of rehab prehab exercises is going to get some blood into the area warm up the lower back muscles and take way any tension that you might be holding in that region and remember you are to do this for one to two sets before and After training and for the second fix you’re going to learn how to activate your glutes Properly so now that your back is stretched out and not tense anymore It’s time to fire up your glutes and hamstrings the way they were meant to be trained The problem is however that most people’s lower backs are far too powerful Tensed up and end up overtaking any movement, which causes pain and discomfort This is why you usually see people’s hips shoot up first when they deadlift vs. lifting the bar but by pushing through their legs and hips So what you need to do instead is learn to activate your body’s most powerful muscle group Which is the glutes and hamstrings combo for this fix will utilize an exercise that is also present in my fix anterior pelvic tilt in three easy steps video and Here’s how you can do it what you’re going to do is lie on your back with your feet on the ground and make sure That there’s no gap between your back and the floor once in place push through your heels and extend your hips toward the ceiling Flexing your glutes and hamstrings as much as possible as soon as you extend your glutes You’re not going to just stop when your body’s in a straight line You’re going to flex your glutes as hard as you can and get a slight Hyperextension at the top of the movement. This is how you fully engage your glutes when doing a glute bridge Then you’re going to hold this position for 20 seconds come back down to the starting position Rest for a second then go back up for another 20 seconds repeating this for a total of 10 repetitions Next as soon as all 10 repetitions are complete You’re going to rest for about 60 seconds and then complete a total of 3 working sets guys I know it takes time to warm up and perform movements like this, but these are the things that prevent injuries And if you’re currently feeling pain and discomfort when you squat or bench or overhead press or curl It’s only a matter of time before a more serious injury Finds you be sure to give the video a thumbs up and if you have questions or future video Suggestions leave them down in that comment section it has always more good stuff coming soon. See ya guys

DON’T DEADLIFT!!! RISK OF INJURY TOO HIGH! (Response to Joe Rogan | Robert Oberst)

DON’T DEADLIFT!!! RISK OF INJURY TOO HIGH! (Response to Joe Rogan | Robert Oberst)


Hey, what’s up guys? I’m Scott from Muscularstrength.com and in today’s video we’re gonna talk about a recent podcast between Joe Rogan and Robert Oberst Now for those of you who don’t know Robert Oberst is a strongman competitor. This guy is a monster he’s six seven about 410 pounds has a lot of Super heavy lifts and during the podcast he started talking about how if you’re not competing Specifically in an event that requires you to deadlift that you shouldn’t do it because of the risk to reward ratio And I really want to break this down because there’s a lot of other videos popping up on YouTube About this podcast because he’s basically a strongman saying not to deadlift and it’s like the risk to reward ratio Is the new buzzword that’s making everybody go, for some reason. It’s like Every single video is talking about risk to reward ratio like it’s this new thing and they’re kind of just feeding into a little bit of The bullshit behind what he’s saying because they’re not really understanding what he’s saying and we’ll get into all of this right now But I do want to warn you guys. I’m in a good mood This video might be a bit more hyped up than normal because that’s just hey That’s just what happens and when the neck veins come out. I know you guys think it’s crazy But I mean, it’s just genetics It’s been like that since I was eight the way this man trains the deadlift if you were to see us training deadlifts We would look like the weekend warrior like the intensity is so different probably training the deadlift three times a week constantly pushing himself constant lifting way more weight than we ever gonna lift because he’s trying to compete and win for those of you who are going to the Gym, and you’re adding the deadlift into your normal workout routine You’re not dead lifting at such a rate where you’re gonna that Risk/reward ratio is gonna be as high for you as it is for someone like him who’s doing it to compete ok? Most of you will probably go into the gym dead lifting maybe twice a week But unless you’re competing in powerlifting, you’re probably not trying to max out all the time You might be working within a rep range of maybe six to eight or eight to ten repetitions Just because you know that the deadlift it’s like the pillar of strength. It’s the one exercise It’s gonna help you become stronger overall, and it’s going to transition into other exercises that you’re doing in the gym There is absolutely nothing wrong with doing the deadlift guys this exercise right here It’s not more dangerous than any other exercise and if you do with in proper form, you’re gonna hurt yourself. All right It’s like people hurt themselves doing a deadlift and they and they act like this is the only exercise They have bad form on So you go to the gym and your form is absolutely perfect on every other exercise But then you go in deadlift and all of a sudden you turn into some dude who doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing like It doesn’t make any sense a lot of times what happens with an injury it’s something that happens because of abuse over time and because the deadlift is an exercise that requires you to lift a Lot more weight than you’re used to on other exercises. It makes more sense that the injury is gonna happen here now Talking about injuries. I want to talk about Larry Wheel Okay, Larry Wheel was doing some atlas stone lifts, and he picked up a stone and he had partial tear in his bicep Now guys, don’t get me wrong. I love this guy. I love watching his videos. I think he’s super inspirational whatever this man is on it was made for him because his physique is phenomenal and he’s super strong, but What’s happening with Larry dude’s breaking pr’s like every day probably breaks a PR and then eats food and then goes back and breaks that PR again Like let’s just be real the guy’s crazy But what happens when you’re constantly lifting heavy all the time And this is probably what Robert was talking about that risk to reward ratio when you’re constantly lifting heavy all the time Yeah, your muscles might be getting bigger But your tendons tend to lag a little bit in terms of getting as strong as your muscles increase in size so it’s very common to have injuries like this when you’re constantly lifting and breaking PRs and adding weight to Snap something or tear a muscle because you need time to recover unfortunately with the trading schedules that these guys have They don’t have as much time as we do we deadlift once a week We’re recovered by the next time we do the deadlift If you’re training to compete you’re doing a lot of exercises that even work within the same Movement pattern of the deadlift your body’s under constant stress all the time. So an Injury happening is a lot more likely also too guys There’s a very big difference when it comes to risk to reward ratio Doing the exercise with proper form versus doing it with terrible form And that’s another thing that needs to be added to this for example, and let’s get back to the lifting heavy I don’t lift heavy deadlifts anymore. Okay, you guys saw that back in the day. I was chasing a 600 pound deadlift I got as high as 535. I don’t lift that heavy anymore I actually did the same thing that Larry did I lifted an atlas stone And as I was placing it on its pedestal it slipped in that little bit of slippage I went to go like this to catch it It strained every muscle in my arm back and chest like I couldn’t even believe that it happened It was only a 225 pound Atlas stone But I strained everything right and it took me a good 3 to 4 months to recover from that because everything was so tight I couldn’t even hammer curl 5 pounds 10 pounds without it hurting Ok, and when I deadlift if I do a switch grip I actually used the switch grip like this where I would have my left hand forward in my right hand facing back This was my position. I don’t even deadlift this way anymore I either deadlift this way or I go this way and then I came to an understanding I’m 34 years old. I don’t compete in powerlifting and I make my living on Making YouTube videos. So if I lose an arm and I can’t make videos anymore. Well, then I’m out of business, right? so for me, it didn’t make sense the risk to reward ratio of chasing a 600 pound deadlift isn’t worth it anymore but the risk of reward ratio of doing sets of 6 to 8 or 8 to 10 anywhere between 315 and 405 with proper form the risk to reward ratio is actually really good On the reward side because I’m benefiting a lot from that from everything that we benefit from a deadlift And what’s also getting irritating to me is you have the same people making videos on YouTube that have all these videos on The proper form for deadlift the checklist of everything you need for a deadlift and then they’re like, oh, yeah risk to reward ratio Oh, yeah, let’s talk about that You don’t want to do this anymore because a strong man said not do it totally taking out of context Probably what the strongman was talking about right the risk to reward ratio for the average person doing deadlifts with proper form Staying within a rep range of like I said well We’ll just say six to ten six to ten reps maybe every so often doing like a five three one is very beneficial It’s gonna help with all your other lifts. It’s gonna help with your squat It’s gonna help with your overall strength period and it’s like a lot of people are talking about How football players don’t deadlift all the time it’s like I didn’t realize that I was training a bunch of NFL athletes watching my show like shit guys if You’re an NFL athlete watching my videos Shoot me a DM because you should be paying me with that forty million dollar paycheck You have to go toss a football around tackle people. All right My audience, maybe there are some football players still this deadlifting will help obviously with the overall power and strength Especially if you’re on the line, you’re trying to be explosive off the line, right? but overall the people that I’m training and those of you that I’m talking to I know 99% of you your athletes going to the gym trying to build the physique of your dreams your body building you want to see increases In your strength adding the deadlift to your routine and doing it properly with good form It’s not going to hurt you as long as you’re doing it right again the two biggest exercises people usually do hurt themselves on is the deadlift with a bicep tear or their lower back or bench pressing with a barbell and Tear in their chest, right? And is it because of improper form? Sometimes yes, it’s because of improper form. Well a lot of times it’s just abuse over time like Larry for example The guy is always breaking PRs Maybe he needs to like just sit back and rest and let his body fully recover so that he doesn’t hurt himself again And that’s what comes down to if you’re a power lifter or a strongman and you’ve been training every single day for years You know your body and you know how to use your body to its fullest. It’s like telling a contortionist Hey, you shouldn’t bend that way you’re gonna get hurt. It’s like that’s what they do for a living They know their body, my whole opinion on on this podcast between Joe and Rob talking to each other, you know Rob is coming from a position of you know, being a strong man and the abuse that’s happened to his body Where in his head, you know, he’s dead lifting three times a week He’s doing a lot of heavy lifting always increasing his weight eating tons of food Trying to be as big as possible six seven four hundred and ten pounds that’s like five of me Okay, very different than the majority of you guys go into the gym and Deadlifting once a week with 225 to 315 just to make sure you’re keeping up with you overall strength gain so if we’re gonna say risk to reward ratio I feel like you need to put some context in this and everyone needs to kind of stop bullshitting around this and trying to act like There’s this like new thought mentality of oh, yeah deadlifts are bad you shouldn’t deadlift anymore Unless you’re training for powerlifting, no you should deadlift. You just need to do a few things number one You need to be smart about what you’re doing proper form and number two You have to have a plan. You have to have a program and number three don’t be the guy that just comes in the gym and waits until it’s packed and then loads a shit ton of weight on the Bar and pulls with terrible form and hurts themselves because yes that person will get hurt ten times out of ten All right, but that’s not you. My community is smart So I guess what I’m basically trying to say is that this topic is really hot right now And I just wanted to let all of you know that it is okay to still deadlift as long as you have proper form and if you need help with proper form I have a really great article on my website and muscular strength or you guys can download my app muscular strength It’s free to view all of my articles in the article It says deadlift why you’re not lifting as much weight as you could The video is at the top and there’s tons of photos that go with every single to show you proper form to make sure that absolutely none of you hurt yourself in the future So definitely check it out I’ll post the link in the end screens after this video is over and on that note Be sure to click that subscribe button if you guys enjoy my content Tap that notification Bell tap that like button just tap everything down there that looks good.

How to Manage Pain Via Natural Methods-Do Pain Relief Patches Work?

How to Manage Pain Via Natural Methods-Do Pain Relief Patches Work?


Hi folks, I’m Bob Schrupp physical therapist, Brad Heineck physical therapist, Together we are the most famous physical therapists on the internet, in our opinion of course Today Brad, we’re gonna talk about how to manage chronic pain via natural methods We’re doing this in cooperation with iherb.com which by the way brings up the first question by the way is it I herb or I herb Yeah, well that’s a good question. H is silent on herbs right? I think so. I’m not an English major Bob so I really cannot be sure. It’s very evident that you’re not You know we could get some information. By the way if you are new to our channel Please take a second to subscribe to us, we provide videos on how to stay healthy, fit, pain free and we upload every day And also go over to Facebook and “like” us because we’d like to be liked, there you go. There’s three things we like about and one of them. I hope you concur carry on one of the it’s one of the largest online stores for natural products and that really fits within our genre wouldn’t you say. I mean we like to, well yeah anything that you can do independently, you don’t have to go to the doctor and get a prescription and something that the worst that happens is No problems. It just may not help. As long as it’s not very expensive I have patients all the time ask me, I’m using this cream, Do you advise it? And I say if you have positive results from it, I say do it. Across the counter There’s no negative effects. So I herb or I herb has over 1200 brands and they have over 35,000 brand name products, and I made sure of that because I went online last night, I counted them all, oh wow A little humor, okay the second thing we like is their prices are typically thirty to forty percent less than what you might get at a pharmacist or a health food store We all love to save money. By the way we worked hard to strike a deal with them And if you click the below and you want to buy any of this stuff They’ll knock another five percent off. That’s a good deal All right, and the third thing it really does matter who you buy these things from They built from the ground up their warehouses with the idea that they’re gonna have products that are perishable So their warehouses are climate-controlled, very clean, so you can be sure that you’re getting a product That’s at its peak performance and things may have a shelf life so they’re rotating things appropriately They said things are going out within 30 days because they sell so much right and plus they have a computer system that really keeps track of that to make sure stuff is done Which is nice to know you’re going to have a fresh product, exactly so all right again Let’s get to the topic here Brad. We have a lot of patients with chronic pain and with the opioid crisis it really is important that we learn how to manage chronic pain without high-power medications. The opioids that can lead to all kinds of problems, not only for the individual, but family members It’s just it’s going rampant. Without getting into it too much, my family’s been touched by this a little bit, my mother-in-law and she’s off now, but she became dependent on opioids after a knee surgery. And for therapists that’s what we do, we teach you how to manage your pain without that and this is just one of the options You know cold packs hot packs stretching, body positioning, etc, and this is another natural What I like to look at it Brad is like we’re giving people tools, and the more tools we can give them, the easier it is gonna be for them to manage their pain And here we got some tools right here We asked for these, we went and looked on their website and we picked out some of the things that we like to use with patients and there’s three categories here. We’ve got the pain relieving patches. We got some homeopathic tablets and then we have the balms and the creams and the topical ointments So we’re not going to talk about these today. We’re gonna do another video on these So we’re just gonna talk about these three here, so this has been our experience with it. One thing I think you’re gonna find out with these Brad is that everybody kind of reacts to these differently, for sure, because now I didn’t get as much out of the Bengay one, but you’re doing better with the Bengay one, right for sure and the other thing I want to say about all three is that they all stick very well So you’re saying the patch sticks to your skin well. You don’t have to worry about it falling off. No in fact I’m gonna put one on right now. This is the tiger balm one, actually if you don’t mind helping me Brad. I’m gonna A lot of times tape sticks to itself you can’t get it apart again Well this one you can yeah, it’s like duct tape if you ever fold it over, Put it this way, would you yeah, it will pull a little bit of hair off What I did with this is I actually put it over my knee I wanted to put it over a joint that bends a lot and I put a Bengay one on my knee and the Tiger balm on my knee, and I actually could work out with it Brad, I did squats I knelt on it So and as you found out Brad when you put these on do they start off very very cool And then it takes a while for them to activate sure The bengay took longer than the tiger balm. The one that kicked in the quickest And I’m not sure if we’re gonna say this right: Salonpas Salonpas. Oh yeah, Loni. What’s that mean? Do you know what it means? Oh? Oh They use it in the Philippines, look at this, we got an endorsement for it. Well anyway I put this, these are smaller, so let’s go over the sizes Brad. The Bengay one is 4×8 No, it’s 3.9. x 7.9 That TigerBalm, but this is pretty close close the same because this one’s 4×8 this one’s almost 4×8 and these are 2.75 x 1.75, so there are a lot smaller but man, they got kick I’ll tell ya if you’re gonna use something for your neck or for a smaller joint like a wrist Yeah, I would recommend say it again, Lonnie Salonpas. Because one they kick in right away and two they They work, very very well, okay, but they did not work well, they’re too small for my back I put it on my back and I could already hardly feel, so this one’s really kicking in now, I can start to feel it already So you feel that cold sensation, yeah and it’s almost even tingly a little bit and warm sensation But what I liked about this one, I know I’m skipping around But the Tiger Balm one is I had it on my knee And I wanted to try it on my back, so I took the same one which they probably don’t recommend and I put it on my back. I still felt some left over from my knee, some residual yeah, I felt that on my back, so if you’re looking for a larger one I’d go with either the Bengay one or the Tiger Balm Brad likes the Bengay one more, I like the tiger balm one. If you’re looking for a small one, this is the home run Sixty patches you get in this too by the way I got costs hold on just a minute. You know I looked on their site Salonpas, that was $13.40 so it was more, but you get 60 for $13.40 yeah, that’s a good price. The tiger balm is $7.30 so you’re gonna get 4 treatments, so less than 2 bucks for treatment and this is $8.50 for the Bengay Around two bucks per treatment, you know and the thing with this is What I like about these Brad is you put them on and then you can maybe it’s gonna allow you to move a little bit more and generally movement helps decrease chronic pain Right, I think these things are just perfect for the arthritic knee, where surgery is not an option for whatever reason and they don’t want to go to the opioids And they want something, I’m amazed at how well they stretch I’ve got this Bengay when I’ve got Morton’s neuroma when I wear these shoes it always kicks in Because the bed of the shoe is just not so good, so he’s got this wrapped around his foot right now And it feels great no and ‘ve got this one on my other foot and for me I’m responding better to this Interesting because I did not, it’s really different chemistry I would also talk about, there are some precautions, you want to make sure it’s a clean dry area that you’re putting on, obviously no sores or open sores Avoid contact with your eyes, so even when you’re touching it, don’t touch your eyes afterwards or in your mouth or yeah mucous membranes, nose, mouth, anything like that We know this because we see a lot of pain patches on people, in our patients You can’t put a heating pad over it or hot pack over it And don’t put a bandage over it They said don’t wrap a bandage over it, if you already have a prescription pain patch don’t mix these up with that either, which most people wouldn’t but earlier I wanted to clarify that and I think the length of time that you can have them on vary Some of them were four hours, like I said on the one I took it off I still felt it for a couple hours after that so obviously the medication is going through there So really a good option for if you’re dealing with chronic pain Or even acute pain if you’re trying to deal with it, certainly better than taking medication if you can avoid it, anything else you want to say Brad? no I just think it’s a good option. It’s not real costly, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain all right We’ll leave it at that. Thanks.

3 Easy Exercises for Sciatica Pain Relief

3 Easy Exercises for Sciatica Pain Relief


The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in
the human body. Its inflammation produces an uncomfortable
pain that extends from the ribs to below the knees. When we suffer from inflammation in the sciatic
nerve, the pain is absolutely terrible. Many people experience pain so deep that they
can not even stand when they have sciatic nerve attacks. In addition to pain, other symptoms such as
heavy legs, tingling, and discomfort may occur. Proper treatment of the sciatic nerve requires
you to follow up with a good health professional, and in many cases this process can be long
and still rather painful. Rest is often recommended, but not for too
long because inactivity also aggravates the symptoms. The causes for inflammation in the sciatic
nerve are diverse and may hide other issues like a herniated disc or even diabetes. Additionally, a condition known as piriformis
syndrome may also be related to sciatic nerve pain. Even herpes infections can lead to sciatica. People who are more likely to develop this
type of problem are those who don’t exercise regularly and, or those who are overweight. Also, those who lift too much weight or put
force on their backs while sitting for long periods of time are also at risk. Because inflammation in the sciatic nerve
demands a treatment that can be time consuming, we’ll show you how it can be strengthened
with some therapeutic exercises. Part of the treatment for sciatic nerve inflammation
focuses on an active lifestyle. Let’s learn about a simple exercise to help
treat sciatic nerve pain and improve your overall quality of life: Sit on the floor and start the exercise by
holding one of your legs, with your knee bent and in line with your chest. Hold your leg for 10 seconds and be sure to
keep your other leg straight. Alternate the leg, remembering to line up
your knee to your chest and hold it for another 10 seconds. After that, lie down on the floor and raise
your legs by slightly flexing your knees without reaching a 90-degree angle. Raise and lower your lower legs five times. Lie down and stretch out on the floor. Without standing up, raise one knee and bring
it up in line with your chest. Stay like this for 10 seconds. Repeat the same process with the other knee
without lifting your back from the floor. Take it easy while doing this to avoid injury. Finish the exercise by stretching out your
body and lying flat. While this exercise is great for relieving
sciatic nerve pain, it’s very important that you contact your doctor and ask for permission
to do so. Remember that due to the various causes of
sciatic nerve inflammation, the treatments for this problem are also varied. So it’s important to know what the best
exercises are for you.

Low Back Pain Relief (ONE MOVE!)

Low Back Pain Relief (ONE MOVE!)


What’s up, guys? Jeff Cavaliere, AthleanX.com. Today I’m going to try to help you to get
rid of that low back pain once and for all. You see, you’ve got to start understanding
what’s causing the low back pain in the first place to really be able to conquer it. I think a lot of times the advice that people
that suffer from back pain get is just misdirected, and misguided. They’re looking at the location
of the pain without actually looking for the source of the pain and unless you get to the
source you’re never going to get rid of the pain once and for all. So today I’m going to show you an exercise
that you’ll want to start doing and I’ll give you different levels of progression depending
on how acute your back pain is. Okay, first of all, if you’re dealing with
a really bad back that doesn’t even allow you to move at the moment, you’re not supposed
to be in the gym exercising. What you’re supposed to be doing is allowing
that to heal, calm down, and control the inflammation. If you’re beyond that though and it’s more
of a chronic problem keeping you out of the gym or making the gym training sessions uncomfortable
then you’ve got to start with an exercise and start training those weak spots. 99% of the time what’s causing low back pain
is a weakness in a joint below that. In this case it could be the hips. It could be weak
hips and glutes that are basically putting you in the position to be compromised in your
low back. So what we do is, we have a setup here, and in this setup you see all I need
is a barbell and a band. The band I have anchored to the back of this
squat rack. However you anchor it, I have it on the back of some pins. Now I’m going
to get myself in position here behind the band and I’m not going to worry necessarily
about the bar just yet, especially if this is something that you’re not in an acute stage,
but you still have quite a bit of back pain and weakness. You get yourself into the bend and you just
walk forward. It kind of blocks your progression to the cage. Now what you want to do is, you
want to position the band right across the crease that happens right here in your hips,
okay? Because the first thing it wants to do is teach you what a hip hinge is. Most of us that have weak backs don’t’ really
know how to hinge correctly. It would feel like moving me into this position here – it’s
just pulling me back and when I let the resistance take over it pulls me back into a proper hip
hinge. It’s taking me at the hips and bending me right at those creases here right at the
top of my hips. If I were to put this higher, like against
my stomach, and I lean forward allowing this to take me back that actually has me fold
over the band. Right now I’m pulling myself into a flex position which is going to cause
problems for us that have low back pain. First thing, up here, now I walk forward. Now all I do is, I allow it to hinge me and
then I come back against the resistance of the band. Squeezing my glutes as hard as I
possibly can and also extending here, staying up nice and tall, to extend to the low back.
So now we’re tying together the glutes and the low back which are supposed to work together.
They’re both extending us. They’re both bringing up back in this direction.
We need them to be able to work in concert with each other. Most of us don’t have glutes
working at all so then the low back tries to accomplish that. The other thing you could
see that would happen is, if I don’t have the ability to extend because I don’t have
strong glutes – so I can’t extend – I start to have this posture where I fall forward
because I’m not extending through the hips. The more I fall forward, the more responsibility
is taken over by the low back and that’s trying to hold me up. You know what/ Doing that 24
hours a day, minus our sleeping time, is too much work for the low back to do alone. It
needs the help of the glutes. So get your ass to start working, literally. So now what
we do is, we can work out one side or the other. If I straddle here, one leg in front and I
let it pull me back, then I drive forward. Let it pull me back, then I squeeze forward.
What you’re going to find is the leg that’s dropped back is doing all the work. So if
I step this way it’s going to look like this. Hinge, squeeze forward, and it will work my
right side. Hinge, squeeze forward. I love this extension because it’s close chained.
It’s working us the way we’re going to be working all the time, which is predominantly
on our feet. Okay, so down, into the hinge, and then squeeze forward right here through
the glute. Now, you want to make it a little more difficult? If you have a healthier back, but one that
you know is weak now you can start tying in an RDL to it. That’s where our bar comes in.
So we grab down, we’ve got the bar, we walk forward just a little bit. Right here, against
the resistance of the band, now I allow it to hinge me down to knee height, maintaining
that arch in my low back, and I drive forward. I use my glutes here to squeeze forward. Down,
drive forward. See, at the top of this exercise we normally wouldn’t have much resistance,
but because the band is in place here I still have a lot of resistance now being applied
to the glutes. Now, last modification. If you really want to start taking this to the
next level you do this: come down, hinge, bent row, here, now drive forward. Hinge, bent row, here, now drive forward.
Now we’re tying everything together. We have hips, then lumbar spine, then thoracic spine
obviously because I’ve got to maintain extension through there, too. They’re all working to
pull.
So there you have it. Now you have a weapon in your arsenal to start attacking that back
pain of yours at its source. Remember, stop just looking for the location
of the pain and start trying to find the actual source of the pain. You’ll finally be able
to get rid of it once and for all. You can’t do that if you’re just looking at the symptoms
and trying to treat the symptoms, okay? This is just another example, guys, of how
we put the science back in strength. You’ve got to peel away the layers a little bit to
get to the bottom of what’s really going on. The human body is pretty complex. We’ve got
to be smarter than it to be able to solve its problems and back pain is one of the biggest
ones we have to deal with on a daily basis. Guys, if you’re found this helpful make sure
you leave your comments and thumbs up below. In the meantime, if you want a program that
trains you like and athlete, puts your feet on the ground to train you like an athlete
and helps you to get bigger, faster, and stronger while putting the science back in what we
do; I would head to AthleanX.com right now and get our Athlean-X training programs. In the meantime, I’ll see you guys back here
again real soon. Let me know what you want to see. Leave your comments below and I’ll

Low Back Pain Relief  – Try This to Relieve Lower Back Pain (2019 updated)

Low Back Pain Relief – Try This to Relieve Lower Back Pain (2019 updated)


there are a few high-end techniques for
low back pain the very few people in the fitness and movement industry know about
today I’m going to share three powerful exercises for low back pain and if you
try them right now I guarantee you will feel better have less back pain in like
five minutes from now and it’s not just pain relief we’re actually doing
something good for your back the exercise I’m going to share with you are
the exact same ones I tend to give my clients one to one probably for the last
few years now and I do it for one reason they make a really nice difference hi my
name is Jacob and I personally know what it’s like to have back pain it sucks
your mind goes something is wrong with me oh I’m far too young to have back pain
oh God I’m sitting too much so you’re trying to
get more active but at the same time you second-guess every exercise you do is it
going to make you strong, is it going to make your back pain go away
or is your back going to snap half the time you finally make it into the gym
and you think he’ll screw this I’m going to stretch raise your hand if you searched
YouTube for back pain and ended up doing yoga if you sometimes feel like your
back is holding you hostage then it might be a lucky day keep watching so
you got low back pain you probably also have a difficulty touching your toes
right before I show you the first exercise and please don’t skip it go
ahead and please touch your toes make sure you don’t bend your knees and just
take a mental note how far do you go pause the video for a second and go
ahead okay great the first exercise is called
the Marionette tailbone squeeze it’s done on the floor to decompress and Decoapt
your lower back realign the spinal discs and mobilize the CSF the cerebrospinal
fluid I didn’t know stretching and relaxing can do all that well it can’t
however this is not really a stretch the first part of the exercise the Marionette
is all about positioning pick your favourite corner one bum cheek on the
wall and slide so that your bum is in the corner the goal here is to create 90
degrees between your thighs and your stomach with back on the floor and
ideally straight knees if possible tuck your chin in like you’re trying to
create a double chin and if possible lift your head just attach off the floor
so your head is touching the floor but not leaning on it we’re trying to create
a long neck position twist your fitting and pull your toes down arms behind you
hugging your ears and wrists extended to the sides with the fingertips pulling
down towards your legs this is the Maurya net part of the exercise and it
means you want to keep tension everywhere the mistake people do here is
relax oh no you don’t relax you sort of want to be more convincing that you’re
taking part of a horror film rather than being relaxed so just to emphasize
during the exercise keep asking yourself can you pull into better 90 degrees on
your hip and straighten your knees further are you doing the best you can
to tuck your chin in can you pour your feet in further together and pull your
toes further down our arms really pushing hard away from your body and I
erased really pulling hard to extend to the sides as much as they can
great now for the tailbone squeeze you want to push your tailbone really hard
into the floor pushing your tailbone Harding to the floor is half the
exercise think about squeezing your quads and pulling them towards you as
well in the best possible scenario you will feel your lumbar spine and your
sacrum slightly separating to create space hold this incredible position for
40 seconds everything tensing hard tailbone pushing down into the floor
shaking is okay and remember to breathe I know there’s a lot going on there but
I promise just write and see what happens now before we move on pay
attention if this position is too easy and you need to progress it or if it’s
too hard and you need to take a step back there are specific ways to do it
the right way we’ve got it all covered in depth at beli proof comm Ford / lower
back pain it’s free the minor tailbone squeeze is beyond amazing for people
with sciatica for people with herniated disk in fact if you’ve been diagnosed
with a slip disc you might want to go ahead and do it for a few weeks by the
time they evaluate you for surgery you might not actually need it it’s that
powerful exercise – 4 7 8 toe touch you’ve tried to touch your toes earlier
and hopefully you’ve just done them I in a tailbone squeeze go ahead and try it
again did I imagine it or did he just get
better let’s make it even better by tricking your nervous system start by
getting rid of your shoes fit together and try and touch your toes
hum don’t let me see you rock not that I can see you right now as before without bending you knees at
the bottom of your movement place your hands or arms between your legs step one
would be to take a deep breath into your stomach for four seconds then for step
to hold the air inside as you hold the air try and use your arms to really
separate your legs and push them out hard but at the same time your legs
needs to resist they need to pull back in your arms pushing out your legs
pushing in so nothing moves try and also squeeze your heels and push them
together everything’s pushing nothing’s moving
and air is being held in your stomach for about seven seconds the last step
step three start relaxing and breathe out slowly to the count of eight seconds
as you relax see if you can easily move further down I like to do this exercise
first thing in the morning it only takes like four seven eight less than twenty
seconds but it makes a big difference exercise number three hey pip all right
this exercise is all about moving your hips independently from the spine and
pelvis the absolute goal in here is to keep an anterior pelvic tilt and an
arched back basically avoid rounding your spine start by kneeling down on the
ground Ultra spine as best as you can and put
one hand behind your lower back move back and rock your bum to your heels
then we do a thoracic rotation your back is locked into position and your upper
spine is rotating up and to the side great now let’s move into abduction your
leg is going out into the side move back and forth Rock a few times try and keep
your torso fairly close to the floor and try to add external rotation by moving
your toes up again triangle from the hip not your
back slide the leg behind you and moving to
the famous pigeon position rock back as much as you comfortably can keeping your
back arched and your chest pointing up when your leg is as far back as possible
start gliding side to side trying to keep your pelvis parallel to the floor
as you glide from there we’re moving to the 1990 position this is an amazing
position to open up the hip capsule I recommend sticking your elbow into the
hip and sort of punching forward that will help you create that nice arched
back position then go ahead and have a look and just double-check and fix your
position so that you have 90 degrees between your legs twice as demonstrated
if possible lean forward with your torso and try not to use support from your
hands so hands in the air is harder and better hold this position for a few
seconds then start opening the trailing leg so that you slowly move into what we
call the best seat position when you can’t open it any further
stick your elbow into the thigh and start pushing them against each other
for a few seconds that means your elbow is going to push your thigh away trying
to forcefully open it by your thigh rather than letting it do it is going to
resist and push back in do it for maybe three or four seconds and then see if
you can move it a bit further and flip to the other side we’re now going to go
in reverse to cover the other side so back into the pigeon into abduction plus
external rotation and finally rocking back and doing thoracic rotations on the
other side that feels super nice right I’ve got more tips to share but this
