Bothered by heel pain upon waking up in the morning when you’re lying down in bed? Or notice heel discomfort when you take your first steps out of bed? It might be because of plantar fasciitis.
Plantar fasciitis is the inflammation of the plantar fascia at the bottom of your foot that runs from your heel bone to the base of your toes. It is a common condition that affects the heel area and can occur in one or both feet, along with swelling in severe conditions. Without proper treatment, heel pain may get worse.
According to Wolff's law, the bone will adapt to the stress under which it is placed. Bones perceive and respond to local dynamic loading, building form, and strength to support function (Wolff, 1892). In a healthy person, this “dynamic loading” is generated by muscle contractions through daily activities and specific training, but in the case of a frail or injured individual where typical exercise regimens are difficult, these mechanical signals can be translated in the form of vibration.
MANAGING QUADRICEPS CONTUSION WITH VIBRATION THERAPY
Athletes involved in contact sports are prone to muscle contusion or bruise, and it is one of those injuries that just about everyone has had at one point or another in their lives. In fact, bruised muscles are the second most common sports injury after strains, and although not considered a serious injury, they can cause discomfort and create a nasty looking discoloration on the skin. Most contusions are minor and can heal quickly, without having to stop the athletes from participating in games. However, with severe cases, it can cause severe tissue damage and lead to complications that may entail stopping to engage in sports for months.
Pulling the Trigger at Trigger Points
Myofascial pain syndrome is a medical term used to describe chronic muscle pain, weakness, stiffness, and inflammation that typically occurs after a muscle has been contracted repetitively or in situations of stress-related muscle tension.MPS affects approximately 9 million people in the U.S., including 95% of people who have chronic pain. Factors that pose a greater risk for MPS include intense exercise, abnormal posture, joint dysfunction and conditions such as sleep problems and chronic infection. Jobs requiring repetitive physical work or prolonged static posture are also risks.
