Back Pain Relief (1 of 2) – Immediate Fixes


Hey guys welcome to the channel! Today
we’re going to talk about some things that do to alleviate my back pain. These
will be more immediate things that I do when I have back pain now. This
is going to be the first of a two-part series. In the second part of this series,
I’ll go over some things that I do to prevent back pain, but first a disclaimer. The opinions or information in this video should not be taken as advice in any form, medical, financial, legal, or anything else. Please pause the video now to read the rest of the disclaimer or read it in the show notes. I came up with this list over 15 to 20 years through trial and error. We’ll start with number 10 and count our way down to number 1. Number 10 is the Spineworx. This is an
item that I got off Amazon.com. I’ll have a link to it in the show notes, but
basically it is kind of a rigid piece of plastic thing and you lay on it. It is
supposed to align your spine. I did get some relief out of this thing. I have
been told that I have reverse curvature of the spine, and to be quite honest when I first lay on this thing it’s kind of painful and doesn’t feel very good. But,
after I lay on it for a little while, that starts to feel better, and I think
it does provide some help for me. Number 9 is an ice pack — not too long though. I only use one for ten to 15 minutes at a time and if my skin starts to feel numb in that area I will remove it immediately. I was a little skeptical
about this one, but it actually works better than I thought. It seems to have the effect of taking an ibuprofen or something similar. It’s a non-drug way to get some relief from inflammation. All ice packs aren’t created equal though.
This blue one that I’ll have a link to in the show notes is a lot better than just putting it in a plastic bag. It seems to sweat a lot less, and it’s a lot more comfortable. They’re dirt cheap too they are a pretty cheap and effective solution. Number 8, stretching, especially if my hamstrings are tight from working out too much from running or biking. I’ve got two simple stretches that I’ll do. For the first one, I just sit in the floor and try to touch my toes basically a lot of times I’m so tight I can’t even get close to touching my toes and I’ll just grab my leg or and try to pull forward as much as I can. I’ll hold these stretches for, you know, 20 seconds, maybe up to a minute, and over time I’ll get a little bit more
limber even during that stretching session. The other stretch I do is the
ballerina stretch. It’s where I hike my leg up on a bar, sometimes a windowsill,
just something a little over a hip height, and I’ll lean forward and when I
do these stretches it seems to loosen my back up. Number 7, a high density foam
roller, similar to the one I’ve got pictured here on the slide. I got this at Amazon.com. I’ll have a link to one of these in the show notes. I keep a smaller one of these
at work too which is very handy. I have an office that I can actually roll on it
sometimes if I’ve having some back pain at work but at home I’ve got the bigger
version it’s about 1 yard wide it’s probably 6 to 8 inches in diameter and
it’s pretty dense and it actually kind of hurts a little bit when you’re
rolling on it but there’s various different ways you can roll on it I
mainly just roll on it lengthwise sometimes all the way from my feet to my
head sometimes and it will loosen you up quite a bit I was quite pleased with how
well this works this thing works super good in my opinion it’s probably
one of the most bang for the buck stings that I have in my arsenal to treat my
back pain and it’s predict an or 20 bucks so I wish I’d found out about
these years ago number 6 magnesium as a muscle relaxer and non-steroidal
anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs those would be like ibuprofen naproxen those
sort of things of course before making any changes to
any of your supplement or medications please check with your doctor or
pharmacist or healthcare provider as far as the magnesium goes I take one capsule
nightly sort of as a preventative measure just to kind of keep my back
loose at night and that seems to work pretty well for me when I wasn’t taking
one nightly I would take one when I was having a back spasm and that seemed to
help other people I know use magnesium oil and will rub it in they get some
relief from that they’ve told me other people will use epsom salts and a bath
and soak in it and that seems to work well for them as far as the insects go
my preferred NSAID is naproxen i’ll usually just take one I think it’s a 220
milligram tablet I’ll take once or twice a day 12 hours apart and
I’ll just take that first little time as I possibly can
doing this seems to help get the inflammation down which provides me with
some immediate relief number five bio freeze spray this was
first recommended to me by my chiropractor
I bought it his office but I’ve since found it on Amazon and Walmart and I’ll
have a link in the show notes it has menthol in it so there is a bit
of a smell however I find that the spray evaporates pretty nicely and it doesn’t
get all over everything too bad I will wear a t-shirt or
something often to kind of shield that menthol from other things I don’t want
to contaminate but this stuff’s pretty awesome
number four warm water I start out my morning by taking a warm shower and of
course that just helps get me going but I also use it if I have acute back pain
I’ll jump in the shower or a tub or a hot tub and just soak for a bit
obviously not too long I used some precautions here but the warm water just
fine just loosens me up quite a bit number three movement movement in
general really helps out my back road biking really helped it out just that
movement from the pedaling walking about 400 meters even when I really don’t feel
like it which is basically every morning really helps to loosen it up also I’ll
do some exercises called cat and camel I’ll do about 10 of those quickly just
jumping on the floor and do those real quick google it and you’ll find some
really good examples on those number two a great chiropractor they are not all
equal let me tell you I have been to a few that have been awesome though and
I’ve really been able to help me out especially in the short term they didn’t
fix it for the long term but they definitely helped me over the short term
I like to steer clear the ones that want to put you on some sort of a payment
plan I’ll mention physical therapy here as well
I know that’s a lot different than chiropractors but I have seen a lot of
people get good results from them just not me personally because I haven’t
tried them but they do seem to provide a lot of help to a lot of people from what
I have seen and heard and finally number one
Bowen therapy also known as the bowing technique bowen therapy helped fix the
reverse curvature of my spine and other therapies never did you can google that
I didn’t get an official diagnosis but I had several chiropractors tell me that I
had it over the years they could never fix it locally it cost about $60 per
session and I saw a massive results after just three sessions those
three sessions made me feel so good and I went back and had several more just to
see what else they could fix it had long-lasting effects for months maybe
even years I haven’t been back probably in a year or two and I still feel better
from it it’s just phenomenal it’s kind of a weird technique so I’ll tell you to
go ahead and just google it right now it’s bizarre but it’s the best thing

prevent back pain in the first place until next time we’ll see you

If You Have a Metatarsal Stress Fracture… WATCH THIS

If You Have a Metatarsal Stress Fracture… WATCH THIS


In this video, I’m going to show you some
great exercises to get your body ready to run again after a Metatarsal stress fracture. So you’ve been told that the foot pain you’re
suffering with is a metatarsal stress fracture. This is one of those injuries that I can unfortunately
speak about from personal experience. I can definitely confirm that this isn’t an injury
you can run through! As you’ve no-doubt been told, resting the
foot is hugely important to allow the the bone tissue to heal properly. However it’s important to remember that
while you’re resting the foot, there’s still loads you can do in terms of exercise. With the right rehab plan we can make sure
that when the time comes, you’re ready to get back to running stronger than ever. After all… it’s the foot we’re trying
to rest. As long as we’re careful to protect the foot there’s still the other 95% of
the body that we can work on! I’ve actually created a free downloadable
Metatarsal Stress Fracture rehab guide to go alongside this video with a series of bonus
exercises and rehab progressions. I’ll leave the link in the description of this video
– be sure to check it out Now, let’s take a look at the various different
phases of metatarsal stress fracture rehab and check-out a few of the key exercises you
can be working on at each stage… Ok so during this early stage of your injury,
we of course have to protect the foot from undue loading and stress while the bone begins
to heal. Whether you’re in a protective boot or not,
the this period of time where you’re not using the foot normally can have consequences for
areas higher up the body, such as the hips and the low back. While you can’t load the foot too much at
this point, you can still promote good movement throughout the rest of your body. Here are a couple of hip and back mobility
exercises you can work on without damaging your foot. Start on all fours. From there, take one knee
and bring it forwards towards your elbow. From there bring the knee out to the side
and straighten the leg backward from the hip. Repeat this circular movement ten times, then
reverse the movement. Aim for three sets of ten on each side. Laying on your front, reach your left foot
and leg back and across your body to touch the ground on the right of your body. You’ll feel your glutes and low back working
as you extend the hip through movement. You’ll also be getting a great stretch through the
front of the hip. Repeat this on your right and left alternately,
and aim for three sets of 10. In the same way, while you’re not using the
foot normally, sometimes the ankle and foot it self can get a little stiff. This simple a-to-z exercise where you ‘write’
the letters of the alphabet with your toes gives your foot and ankle a thorough workout
in all planes of motion. When your Physio gives you the go ahead to
begin gradually loading the foot again, any exercise where we work on balance and stability
is a great option… just as long as nothing you do causes your foot pain. This single leg toe touch exercise is one
of my favourite balance and single leg stability exercises for runners! It’s so simple yet
so effective… Standing on one leg, maintain your balance
as you keep your back straight and pivot forwards from the hips. Reach down to touch your big
toe with your opposite hand, then stand up straight again. Of course it’s not just about the foot…
As I mentioned regarding mobility, we also need to address the hips when it comes to
keeping important muscles such as the glute complex in good functional condition. I really like this variation on a step-up
exercise where we add a resistance band just below the knee to force you to work harder
through those all-important abductor and external rotator muscles of the hip, such as glute
med and upper glute max. Keep the movement slow and deliberate while
stepping back and forth over a step for three sets of 1 minute When it comes to gradually returning to running,
there are also a number of exercises you can work on to build strength around the foot,
ankle and lower legs. When the time comes to resume running gradually,
your Physio should give you an appropriate return to running programme so that you can
gradually increase the cumulative stress on the injured metatarsal. Alongside the running programme you should
also ask your Physio about exercises you can use to compliment running in gradually reintroducing
the loading. Exercises such as heel and toe walking are
great for building strength and endurance in the muscles around the ankles. Jumping rope and jumping on its on are both
great low level ploy strict drills which will help you condition the low legs, feet and
ankles for running. As with the obvious progression – hopping – care should be taken in performing
these post metatarsal stress fracture. Little and often is the way forwards with these exercises,
so as to not overload the bone tissue as it remodels. I usually find that 5 X 20sec bouts of an
exercise like jumping rope is an adequate training load to begin with. Not too much,
but enough to have an effect. If you’re unsure, please always check with
your Physio. Best of luck with your rehab, and don’t

The Syndesmosis Squeeze Test | Syndesmosis Injury

The Syndesmosis Squeeze Test | Syndesmosis Injury


In this video I will show you how to conduct the Syndesmosis Squeeze Test in order to determine a Syndesmosis spring the Syndesmosis is the interosseous membrane that connects the tibia with the fibula and It can get injured with Inversion Trauma or extra rotational dorsiflexion trauma The estimated incidence is 1% of all ankle sprains according to the KNGF ankle sprain guideline according to an RCT done by De César et al. (2011) the squeeze test has a sensitivity of 30% and a specificity of 94% in the diagnosis of syndesmosis ruptures To perform the tests of your patient in supine lying position and squeeze the proximal fibula and tibia together Then apply the same compression at more distal places down to the Malleolus according to Nussbaum et al. (2001) the length of tenderness above the lateral malleolus Indicate severity so the more proximal pain is felt the more severe the injury Pain during these compressions may indicate Syndesmosis rupture, given that a fracture Confusion or compartment syndrome have been ruled out before Alright guys this was our video on the Syndesmosis Squeeze Test Make sure to also watch our video on the Anterior Drawer Test for injuries of the anterior TFL or watch our video on the External Rotation Stress Test which is another test for Syndesmosis injuries As always I hope this video is helpful to you if it was don’t forget to give it a like check us out on Facebook, Instagram Or on Physiotutors.com.

Arthritis Neck Pain Relief

Arthritis Neck Pain Relief


Arthritis neck pain relief. Is it
possible to get pain relief if you have arthritis? Well stay tuned and I’ll give
you a case example and explain how it works Hey I’m doctor Ekberg with Wellness For
Life and if you’d like to truly master health by understanding how the body
really works make sure that you subscribe and hit that notification bell
so that we can keep this content coming your way. I can’t tell you the number of
people that come through the office who have some sort of pain and the first
thing that they tell me is they went to the doctor and they had x-rays and they
were told that they have arthritis and that there’s probably nothing that can
be done about it but they’re desperate so we’re their last hope their last
option well sadly we are their last option we should be their first option
because if we could address that long long long before it became a big problem
than that arthritis would be much less likely to develop but what is arthritis
arthritis is bony degeneration when that joint isn’t working properly then it
starts to get some inflammation and the body tries to create increased stability
by laying down more bone a joint that’s working properly has a very fine-tuned
muscle control so joint can only move and work as well as the muscles that are
stabilizing and moving it and of course it’s the brain that moves the muscles
and if there’s any distortion in the feedback between the joint and the brain
and the brain can’t control it properly it becomes a little unstable and over
time it wears unevenly it gets them flamed it doesn’t repair properly it has
uneven weight bearing and on and on and on and over a period of years or decades
we develop bony degeneration and arthritis so most people over 50 would
probably find some arthritis on their spine if they had an
sree but that’s not the cause of the pain it’s a result of a dysfunction and
the pain and the arthritis are the result of the same dysfunction it’s not
that one is causing the other if we can improve the function typically we can
improve the quality of life the stability the range of motion etc so I
had this lady come in recently she is 65 ish and she could turn her head about 45
degrees to the right and she could turn about 10 degrees to the left and she
said it was very difficult to drive because if she was supposed to look over
her left shoulder at all she had to kind of twist and move her whole body and
I’ve had hundreds of people that tell me that exact story so not only is there
personal suffering involved but you can only imagine what it does for traffic
safety if people can’t look over their shoulder so long story short we adjusted
her a few times and two weeks later she has completely normal range of motion
she can turn eighty degrees to the left she can turn eighty degrees to the right
which is a normal rotational range of motion so she had been told that because
they found arthritis that was the cause of her limited motion and they told her
this would never get better get used to it take some pain pills etc etc but just
because there is arthritis on the x-ray doesn’t mean that that’s the cause of
anything it doesn’t mean that the function can’t be improved your body is
designed to heal your body is designed to self-correct and manage things if we
can just help it along if we can get rid of some of the interference if we can
provide it better feedback better signals if we can give the brain a truer
picture of what the world looks like your body will go right on to healing
and performing and functioning no matter how long it’s been
are there cases of arthritis that are truly causing stiffness and and
limitations of course there is a point where there are thright escossio ssin
and if all the joints in the neck fuse then you have no rotation then we can’t
do much for that range of motion we can still improve the function and reduce
whatever pain we can improve signaling and help the quality of life but there
is always a limitation of matter for most people they have a lot more left in
them than they believe because they’ve never had anyone truly help the body
along and figure out what’s interfering and reconnect everything to where it’s
working properly if you have some arthritis if you’ve been told that you
have it if you have been told to get surgery let me know what your
experiences are if you know someone who has that kind of situation write your
questions write your comments I’ll be more than happy to try to get back to it

Tailbone Pain Relief (Coccydynia)

Tailbone Pain Relief (Coccydynia)


AJ here with Stronglife Physiotherapy. Tailbone pain, or coccydynia, can cause a lot of pain especially while sitting. So I’m going to show you a way to relieve the pain so your tailbone can heal. Tailbone pain is most often caused by a fall where you hit the tailbone directly. Sometimes it can also come on after childbirth and sometimes we don’t even know the cause. When the tailbone is injured the thing that causes the most pain is sitting. When you sit it puts pressure on the coccyx which irritates it and causes the pain to flare up. One of the best ways to help the coccyx heal is to avoid this irritation by sitting less, which isn’t always an option. Or modifying the way you sit. This can easily be done with a pillow. Just fold a pillow lengthwise and put it under your ischial tuberosities, or your sit bones. It should be forward from your tailbone so your rear end hangs over the end a little. This is a simple and cheap way to relieve tailbone pain while sitting. Some people use a donut pillow which helps a little. But they actually make pillows specifically for coccyx pain. So if you’ve been in pain for a long time and you’re going to spend money on something get one of those. See the video description section for some recommendations. Thanks for watching, have great day! Make sure to subscribe, and stay strong!

Herbal Relief of Lyme Disease

Herbal Relief of Lyme Disease


– It’s all word of mouth that people call and text and it usually starts
with a question. If you ever work with Lyme
disease, that’s a common one. Now Wyoming has Lyme disease. But it’s a different
species of Lyme organism than we have in New
England and California. I had to find that
out the hard way by having Lyme disease
myself and being told that it doesn’t exist,
I couldn’t have it because I was in the
mountains for a month before I came down with it and I hadn’t left 11,000 feet. I would have had to have
gone to an eastern state in order to get Lyme disease. Or northern California,
where it’s been for a decade or two. And so as far as I know, I
was the first case in Wyoming and I used that
to learn about it because I really didn’t know
anything about Lyme disease. That’s one way to learn
about the immune system. Come down with medical issues and try to figure
a way through it. By the time I went
through treatment, I’d already gone to
stage two Lyme disease and it’s very hard to diagnose. Borreliosis is what it’s called. Borrelia burgdorferi
is the spirochete that causes this Lyme disease, was thought to be the only one. I was doing research
with a group of people interested in bighorn
sheep diseases when I had to drop out and
say I can’t even remember my name most days, so I
can’t be publishing papers with you guys on bighorn sheep. So our colleague in Argentina, who’s
working with deer, with selenium deficiencies,
the same thing we were working with here, he said, “Did
you know there’s more “than one type of Lyme disease?” And he sent me an ecological
paper that had just come out about eight, nine years ago on these species
of Lyme borellia. There were five different
ones, possibly six. One was ocean-going,
living on albatrosses. But the one we have in
Wyoming is a different species that probably is carried
by different vectors other than deer ticks, which would explain
why I was fairly sure where I got it from, a black fly that was courting
the bighorn sheep. I was very close to
bighorn sheep every day. At any rate, none of the
standard medicines worked for me and it continued to get worse
over a period of six years until I ran into an alternative
Chinese practitioner, Chinese medicine
practitioner, who gave me some Chinese herbs and
it went away in a day. And it’s never come back. So I went from unemployable,
could hardly walk, and neurologic
symptoms, parasthesia, pains that were unexplained
that were debilitating, joint problems, arthritis, I
couldn’t play piano anymore, which really bothered me. Plus I couldn’t work because
I couldn’t think very well. Cognition was affected. To a day later being
completely recovered. So I had tremendous enthusiasm
for spreading the word and I knew of a couple other
people with the same symptoms that were also diagnosed
as not having Lyme disease. Their diagnosis was we
don’t know what you have. They also recovered
very quickly. So I started treating people. The thing about some
of these networks with things like Lyme disease
is people hear about it and becomes a network
of people with a disease that’s hard to diagnose,
and often untreatable. If you catch stage one
Lyme disease early enough, you can treat it with
doxycycline very efficiently, but once it goes to stage
two, it’s not treatable with doxycycline. That’s when alternative
medicines work really well. And it turns out the chemistry
of the Chinese medicines I was taking also occur here
in Native American medicine, medicinal plants. So I start asking people when
they would call up and say, “I hear you dealt
with Lyme disease. “Do you have any clues,
because I’m unemployed, “I have pains that don’t have
any connection to reality, “and my joints don’t work
and I’ve been diagnosed “with Lyme disease.” Usually the first
ones I got were people that actually were
diagnosed with borreliosis. They responded very quickly
to the Chinese herbs but then I asked a few that
were up for experimenting if they would go with
some experimental herbs that we can try, because I was
able to suppress my symptoms with osha root, which
is a very, very popular Native American herb,
popular in the sense that all of the tribes know about it
and use it for lots of things. But it’s a very
effective pathogenic drug and it kills pathogenic
bacteria and viruses. Very few things
can kill viruses. So this borellia
organism is a spirochete, which is a type of bacteria. We used osha root on
a couple of people and it seemed to
work right away. So that’s what I use now
because it’s cheaper, it’s easier to find,
and it’s native. You don’t have to import it. Osha root combined
with French sage, which is equivalent
chemically to the Chinese herb which I forgot the
Chinese name for it, but the Latin name
is artemisia annua. The one we have is
artemisia frigida. It has same the lactone
glycosides in it, which kill parasites. So I use this plant. It’s in season right
now, it’s collectable, so I just grabbed this right around my cabin. I dry these and keep them and
make tinctures out of them. But osha grows in
higher mountains. Going over Togwotee Pass,
you can collect it there and keep a stock dried. It’s only good for
two years though, and I found that out by
experimenting on myself, because I was using
osha root in lower doses to suppress symptoms
of Lyme disease. I didn’t know at the
time if I took it at the same level, the same
dosage, and for the same period of time that you take
the Chinese herbs, which is about a year,
then it doesn’t come back. I would take it only
when I had symptoms, and it would make all the
symptoms of Lyme go away. But that’s how I learned
about these things. I learned a lot
about back issues and kinds of illness everybody
comes up with occasionally and injuries, and I try
to find natural ways that are local to
treat these things. – So the symptoms,
with Lyme disease, the symptoms are
different for everybody? Is that what you’re
talking about? – Tremendous variability. And it has to do with the
type of organism it is. It hides. It’s not a normal, ordinary
bacteria that you run into in the first year
of microbiology. It’s a spirochete and by nature
they lose their protein coat on the outside, so
any identity it has with your immune system
in terms of antibodies are no longer functional. So it can hide from
your own immune system after it’s been identified by stripping its
protein coat off and then producing a new
identity when it reemerges, maybe a few weeks or
a few months later. I had recurring symptoms,
and most people do, and when it comes back
in three weeks or so, that was the average time
it would disappear for me. I’d have symptoms and
then they would disappear for a few days. I felt normal. But then we’d come back
and instead of arthritis in my hands, it would
be arthritis in my feet. Or fever. Or when it became stage two,
it’s mostly neurological. I went blind for a while. Could not see anything. I was on a road trip
when it happened so I was stuck on
the side of the road in a place with no cell
reception, no cell phone at all. So I was on my own. It also had affected my right leg, so I didn’t
have motor control of my right leg, but
I didn’t know that sitting in my truck. So I pulled out at Green
River, where they have a historic turnout
and you can look at the Oregon Trail
ferry crossing. I was sitting in my truck
unable to see for hours, and finally I started
to get my vision back. I saw some people
that had pulled in. A couple had driven to
the spot far away from me and they were walking in my
direction to look at the river, the Green River. When they got close, I thought, “Well, I’m starting
to get my vision back “but I may lose it again. “I’m gonna ask them for help.” So I opened the door
and put my left foot out and then I swung around and
tried to put my right foot out and I fell down and
I couldn’t walk. So I was climbing up
on the door window to get myself vertical
and waving at these people to get their attention. Of course, I looked in
every way like a drunk, and they turned around
and quickly walked back to their car and drove off. So I was stuck there
for about a day. Then the vision came back. So that’s Lyme disease. It’s very, very strange. Borreliosis is about as
cryptic as an illness can be as far as symptoms go. All of them disappear. You actually kill the
organism using osha root, which is well known for
killing cryptic organisms, whether it be a virus
or pathogenic bacteria. – That kind of explains
why it goes undiagnosed, because what do you test for? What do you see as an
evidence or marker of it? – Right, so they
decided on things in the medical profession,
they have certain criteria. There’s five of them, and you
have to have at least three in order to qualify for some
of the harder drugs they use. Like ceftriaxone is a pretty
serious antibiotic drug. You have to take it IV,
but you don’t qualify for that treatment
unless you’ve had three of the five indicators. Sometimes you don’t
have those three. Because it’s such a
cryptic symptomatology. You don’t often have all
of the required symptoms. So the bullseye bite
site is one of the things that only less than 50% of the
people with Lyme disease get, but that’s one of
the required symptoms to be diagnosed with Lyme. I didn’t have it. – It makes me wonder what– Could there be adverse
effects, though, taking something potent enough
to kill the Lyme disease? – Oh yeah. – And osha is– – That’s part of the
experimenting process, because osha is so potent. If you take it in a high dose
which is what I was really trying to determine with
my experiments with people, what kind of a dose
can you take safely when you’re in that
high range of osha root? There’s not really much in the
literature on that subject. Osha has been used for a lot
of pathogenic infections. But this was a new one,
and there’s nothing in the literature on it. So I went too high
with one woman and killed off her
intestinal flora, as you would with
Flagyl or a lot of drugs for giardia, which
are very potent drugs. Nothing new in
the medical world. But it took her five– It took her two months before
she started showing signs of not being able
to absorb food. She’d killed off her enteric
bacteria and microorganisms. So we took her off of
that, and as it turns out, that was enough time. So I learned two things. You didn’t have to
go a whole year, because she’s now two
years from that treatment and still has not had a
recurrence of Lyme disease. But it all went away overnight. The common phone call I get is, “I’m indebted to you for life. “I no longer have any symptoms.” Wait and make sure it doesn’t
come back before you say that. But that’s usually a
long term recovery. You can get it again
but the treatment lasts about two to
three months, and then it kills the organism.
