    What are Hemorrhoids? Hemorrhoids (or piles are they are more commonly known) are simply the veins in your anus which have become distended (swollen with blood). This is very similar to varicose veins, where the vein becomes large and lumpy, only these veins are around the anus which makes it a bit more embarrassing. The vein swelling can affect the part of the anal canal just above the sphincter where it is less well supported and protected causing Internal Hemorrhoids. Or it can affect the veins at the lower end of the canal causing External Hemorrhoids. Either of these types can exhibit…

    Tired of reaching for a bottle of pills to quell your chronic pain? Maybe you should strap on a virtual reality headset. In an experiment described last week in Psychological Science, scientists showed how bogus visual feedback created by virtual reality can actually trick the brain into boosting or reducing a person's range of pain-free movement. The study highlights the ways in which sensory perceptions, and not just physical signals, can make us feel pain—and how that effect can be manipulated to design new therapies. To test this notion, Daniel Harvie at the University of South…

  • Why Your Hamstrings Are Still Tight Even Though You Stretch Them All The Time

    Sukie
    28 Feb 2015 | 12:16 pm
    Do you feel like no matter how much stretching you do, your hamstring flexibility never increases? Tight hamstrings continue to be one of the most common complaints that I hear about, and there’s a reason why focusing solely on hamstrings will quickly reach a point of diminishing returns. Nothing in the body functions in isolation.  To lengthen the back line of your legs, other systems (i.e. muscles and fascia) have to accommodate movement of the hip joint, pelvis and spine. That’s what we’ll look at in today’s Weekly Reboot, plus I’ll show you two exercises you…

But aside from trading in your desk job for life as a yoga instructor where you can stretch eight hours every day, what can you do? Fortunately, posture is a result of how we do what we do, not so much what we do and with a few small tweaks to your daily habits, you too can be standing taller and reaping the rewards of better office posture in less time than it…

    27 Feb 2015 | 4:00 am
    Most people know me as the TOUR pro who took down Kevin Costner in the movie Tin Cup. They also know that since I turned 50, I’ve had my fair share of health-related issues. I’ve had a hip and a knee replaced. But out of all the health issues I’ve endured, living with back pain was the absolute worst. And the most difficult part about it wasn’t how it affected my golf game – it was how it affected my quality of life.  I have three grown children and three grandchildren, and it was heartbreaking to feel like my family wasn’t getting the best of me.

But as my feet touched the floor, I realized that I didn’t feel any pain in my back. I remember thinking that the pain would kick in, but it never did. Now, several years later I’m still living without pain in my back. After my surgery at Laser Spine Institute, I realized the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle to help keep my back strong.

    As a young adult, most people dream about the goals they will achieve. Our futures are bright and the possibilities seem endless. I remember thinking I could accomplish anything at 18, especially since my dream of playing on the LPGA tour was already a reality. I remember feeling like I was invincible because I was only 18 and never considered that back pain would cost me my career. As an LPGA player, I spent a lot of time golfing, and over time, my golf swing took a toll on my back. A lot of twisting, torqueing and force go into a good swing, and it wasn’t long until I was in near-constant…

    After I hurt my back several years ago, it was like my life stopped. Things that were once simple became difficult. I was forced to think about every move I made, and asked myself is this going to make my back hurt worse? I couldn’t even walk upright. It used to take me probably a full minute just to stand up to be able to walk out of a restaurant. It was almost embarrassing. The worst part of my back pain wasn’t actually my discomfort. It was not being able to spend quality time with my loved ones. I was very limited to what activities I could participate in with my family. Before my…

    I’m no stranger to strategy. So you have to believe me when I tell you that I tried everything to beat my upper back pain: dozens of shots, two surgeries on my neck and an artificial disc. It’s made two of my favorite things — working at ESPN and playing golf — battles that I felt like I was losing every day. I’m sure decades of coaching college football and, more recently, the long days on set, in addition to the plane rides to the station’s Connecticut studio, hardly helped my pain. Likewise for the years of noon tee times and pro-am golf tournaments I’ve played in — but…

    The knee is one of the largest and most complex joints in your body. It’s comprised of bones, cartilage, ligaments and tendons. Two major bones meet to form the joint: the femur (thighbone) and tibia (shinbone). The fibula is located alongside the tibia on the back of the knee, and a fourth small bone, the patella or kneecap, rests on the front to help protect the joint. In between the femur and tibia are two wedge-shaped sections of tough, rubbery cartilage, the menisci, which act as shock absorbers. Four rope-like ligaments hold the bones together and stabilize the knee. Tendons…
