Water Therapy Exercises Help Reduce Arthritis Pain

water-therapy-exerciseThose dealing with arthritis know the pain it can cause, pain that can occur when you walk, stand, or even lie down. The pain may even be so chronic that it becomes debilitating, keeping many people from doing even the simplest of activities. Wouldn’t it be nice to feel no pressure in the joints, to feel weightless? Water therapy exercises give you just that. When we float in water, 80-90 percent of our body feels weightless, the pressure is removed from all areas as the body is kept in suspension and the joints from rubbing against each other. You can see just how great this might feel to those suffering from arthritis, but there is a whole world of benefits that millions of people are receiving from water exercise therapy, especially those dealing with arthritis or another similar type of disease.

Is Chronic Pain Making You Lose Sleep?

chronic-pain-causes-sleep-troublesIs chronic pain keeping you from getting peaceful sleep? According to the 2015 Sleep in America Poll, the National Sleep Foundation discovered that 57% of Americans are struggling to get good sleep because of pain.

There are many ways that you can suffer from disturbed sleep. One, you can fall asleep but at some point you will wake up and struggle to get back to sleep. The reason this is not good for you is because it disrupts you from your REM sleep, which is the restorative stage of sleep.

Then there are those who cannot fall asleep no matter how hard they try. They even find that the more they try, the more stressful the situation becomes. If this scenario sounds familiar to you then you know the toll that no sleep takes on your body. It affects your mood, it affects your productivity, it zaps your energy, and takes away any desire to get out and do something...even if that “thing” is something that you absolutely love. You may even notice that it affects your relationships with people you care about. The fact is: when you cannot sleep and get rested, it affects almost every aspect of your life, especially your recovery process. Studies find that sleep is one of the basic needs for the body; it is just as important for you as eating and being active.

So you may be wondering if there is anything that you can do to try to get a good night’s rest with chronic pain. (Continue Reading)

Is Yoga the Answer for Chronic Pain?

is-yoga-answer-for-chronic-painEveryone seems to be doing yoga these days. This is because there are many health benefits from consistent yoga practice, especially for people suffering with chronic pain. Studies have found that yoga can prevent the changes that chronic pain causes in the structure of the brain, and which has been linked to depression, anxiety, and brain fog.

Brain images have revealed to researchers that chronic pain changes the volume of gray matter and disturbs the connections of the white matter. According to new brain images, yoga actually bulks up gray matter and strengthens the connections of white matter. Catherine Bushnell, PhD, a director of the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, said, “Practicing yoga has the opposite effect on the brain as does chronic pain.” Bushnell also reported that ongoing yoga practice can increase levels of pain tolerance, leading to a decrease in chronic pain.

If you are suffering from chronic pain, this is good news for you. (Continue Reading)

The Facts About Carbohydrates and Running

runner-eating-carbsWhen runners experience fatigue, the usual culprit is a lack of carbohydrates. Many believe that eating carbohydrates will make you gain fat mass, but the real problem is not burning off the calories that you consume. This means that runners need more carbohydrates in their diet to provide enough energy. Low carb diets and endurance exercise are not a good pair, as carbohydrates are what your body prefers to turn into energy. If you lack carbs, your body will start to convert protein and fat into energy, which is an insufficient form of energy for a runner. (Continue Reading)

Feldenkrais and Fibromyalgia: A Path to Less Pain

feldenkrais-fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is the most common cause of severe musculoskeletal pain in people seen by rheumatologists and other physicians. Those with fibromyalgia often display musculoskeletal pain, chronic fatigue, and sleep disturbance. Other symptoms may include morning stiffness, headaches, depression, gastrointestinal problems, and thyroid problems. Emotional stress, noise, trauma, and even climate have been known to exacerbate symptoms.

With the numerous treatment options available for those suffering from fibromyalgia, there is still many who still struggle with fibromyalgia symptoms on a daily basis. However, one specific method has been showing steady promise in decreasing these symptoms; The Feldenkrais Method. The Feldenkrais Method was created by Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, a Russian-born physicist and educator who developed his technique in response to his own diagnoses. This method works by increasing the person's sensitivity and awareness of physical movement. This method has grown in popularity. The goal is to reprogram the sensorimotor learning ability of a person’s central nervous system, basically the body relearns the patterns in which we should move, as well as how our bodies control these movements. This method is based on principles of physics, kinesthetics, and biometrics. The Feldenkrais method encourages practitioners to work alongside patients in an “instructional” manner, instead of just attempting to correct them.
