ORTHOPEDIC INSOLES WITH INCREASED CORRECTION OF DYSMETRY IN PATIENTS WITH SHORTENING AND LUMBAR PAIN MANAGEMENT
The most commonly treated dysmetries are those of the lower extremities, due to their impact on gait and corresponding to functional alteration.
The heel spur is a bony prominence, or exostosis, that can appear on the inside of the heel (calcaneus) as a consequence of excessive and continuous stretching of the plantar fascia, which is a band of connective tissue that covers the muscles of the area. By overstretching, the fascia can calcify, forming the spur.
The main objective of the treatment by means of orthopedic insoles is to promote the correct formation of the plantar arch and that the feet work properly so that their walking is efficient, thus avoiding future problems.
We call sports massage any manual technique done on an athlete and that will help us improve their performance, increase their work capacity and subsequent recovery, and prevent or treat possible injuries caused by the sport they perform.
Immediately after an injury is the best time to begin guiding the healing process in the most efficient way possible. The first thing to recognize is if the injury is a medical emergency or not. If it is a medical emergency (excessive bleeding, a head injury, broken bones. Etc.) then going to an emergency room is the best plan.
It can be classified generally as a cervical spine sprain/strain. Most of us think of this injury as a consequence of a car accident, as many times it is. It also includes any trauma (usually sports or falls) or accident that whips the head in any direction causing injury to the soft tissues surrounding the cervical spine. The tissues being muscles, tendons, ligaments and possibly, the discs in the neck. If not addressed properly in the beginning, it can cause chronic pain and disability.
Pilates, specifically, can be an outstanding form of exercise in general and in-terms of spinal structure, stability and health. The caveat is that it is great if you have a healthy spinal structure to start with. It is not good if the spine is already structurally compromised and injured.
“Good” pain shows you are pushing your limits. Something that can be deceptive about some physical activity is that we feel great while performing the activity. However, over time, pain and dysfunction develop that we do not mentally connect to this activity because it does not happen at the moment we are doing it.
