Injuries, Symptoms

Nocturnal (Night) Cramps

Nocturnal leg cramps - often referred to as Charley Horse - are pains that occur in the legs, mainly calves,  during the night. They will usually cause sudden awakening from sleep with moderate to severe pain. These cramps mostly happen in the calf muscles but can also occur in the thighs or feet.

In my experience theonlyway to release the cramp is to immediately stretch the muscle in the opposite direction! Use a towel or your blanket, wrap it around the bottom of your toes and ball of foot and.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the palm of the hand, becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist. The median nerve controls sensations to the palm side of the thumb and fingers (although not the little finger), as well as impulses to some small muscles in the hand that allow the fingers and thumb to move. The carpal tunnel - a narrow, rigid passageway of ligament and bones at the base of the hand - houses the median nerve and tendons.

Computer Shoulder and Neck Strain

Computer Shoulder and Neck Strain

I have worked on my share of hard core athletes in my 20 years of practice and I will tell you "nobody" even comes close to the neck and shoulder regions of my computer clients, as far as tightness is concerned. They present with "knots" hard as golf balls and "rope like" muscle fibers any Cirque de Soleil acrobat would be happy to climb! Our bodies simply were not designed for the amounts of stress those little magical machines produce for our posture - even with the best ergonomics.

Low Back Pain

The majority of my clients will at some point come in withLow Back Pain, either acute or chronic.
Men and women are equally affected by low back pain, which can range in intensity from a dull, constant ache to a sudden, sharp sensation that leaves the person incapacitated. Pain can begin abruptly as a result of an accident or by lifting something heavy, or it can develop over time due to age-related changes of the spine. Sedentary lifestyles also can set the stage for low back pain, especially when a weekday routine of getting too little exercise is punctuated by strenuous weekend workout, "Weekend Warrior Syndrome".
