What’s the Deal With Shoulder Pain?
Shoulder Pain: Why It Happens
Shoulder pain has many different causes and presentations, but the most common area to have shoulder pain is anteriorly, or right in the front of the shoulder. Some of the different causes of anterior shoulder pain could be due to rotator cuff tendinitis, biceps or rotator cuff tendon impingement, biceps tendonitis, or a bicep tear, to name a few.
Effects of Aging and How to Counteract Them
“Getting old is not fun.” I can’t tell you how many times patients have told me this as we are doing an exercise in therapy. Unfortunately, it’s true. It is inevitable that our bodies will deteriorate as we age. However, there are steps that we can take to counteract the effects that aging has on our muscles, bones, and joints.
What is the “core”?
The core includes vast groups of muscles throughout areas in the entire torso. Some muscles included being the abdominals but on top of that we also have the pelvic floor muscles, the deep buttocks muscles, paraspinals, and larger back muscles. There is also some assistance from the lats, traps, and glute max. Therefore, much more than just the abdominals.
The National Council for Aging Care notes, “Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall.” Falling can be and is a very real hazard for many, the older population in specific. Most falls happen right in the comfort of your very own home.
