Epi-Lock Elbow Support

September 11, 2008

This uniquely-designed tennis elbow strap is more effective and comfortable than conventional supports. Epi-Lock’s unique distal strap supports extensors that are deeply buried and harder to support near the elbow where tennis elbow straps are usually worn. Its two straps together give exceptional support and pain relief.

The non-elastic straps are worn comfortably snug. When muscular force is applied, the extensors automatically enlarge causing the straps to tighten. Because the straps are relatively narrow, they focus the binding force for maximum effectiveness. As the extensors relax, the straps return to their comfortably snug condition.

* Lightwieght
* Won’t slip
* Washable

Epi-Lock Elbow Supports
are manufactured from DermaDry, an exclusive material that outperforms all conventional bracing materials. DermaDry combines the breathability and water-vapor transmission capabilities of open- cell sponge rubber with the durability, stretch and compression of neoprene.

This process allows perspiration to evaporate and is further enhanced by the KwikWick treatment of the soft polyester that coats the inside and outside of the braces.

DermaDry keeps just the right amount of soothing warmth in the soft muscle tissues, keeping them flexible while providing compression. A flame lamination process is used to secure the KwikWick treated polyester to the rubber, eliminating the need for industrial adhesives, a known cause of contact dermatitis.

Reclined Hamstring Stretch

January 13, 2008

The hamstring stretches done while lying on the back are gentler and place less stress on the back than those done while sitting. Depending on a person’s specific medical condition and level of pain, the lying down position may be preferable and comfortable. In particular, a person with low back pain should choose whichever position is most tolerable for their back while still giving a gentle stretch.

Thera-Band Exercise Ball

May 13, 2007

                                      The exercise ball is a great tool for strengthening the abs, but it also helps you reach those hard-to-get-to muscles as well as improving your balance and overall coordination.

The numerous applications of the exercise ball follow a range of difficulty levels, and the benefits for back pain can be felt at each level. From merely sitting on the exercise ball to doing structured aerobic exercise routines, the basic support needed by the back and stomach muscles are the same.

For a person with low back pain, the exercise ball can be used for a variety of purposes. Some of the reasons the exercise ball is used are to learn proper posture, increase lumbar (low back) mobility, increase abdominal and back muscle strength, increase balance and stability as well as develop overall control and strength of the core body muscles.

As an introduction to exercising on the ball, it is often recommended that one simply sit on the exercise ball for 30 minutes a day and bounce lightly, continually finding and maintaining one’s balance on the ball.

Another recommended first step on the exercise ball is to find a neutral (lordotic) lumbar spine position. Slouch slightly on the exercise ball, rounding the lower and upper back. Begin bouncing lightly on the exercise ball.Allow the body to automatically find the straightened posture, which promote staying balanced while continuing to bounce on the exercise ball. This balanced position on the exercise ball is also referred to as the center of gravity, where the upper body is balanced on a stable pelvic base.Even a slight change in this neutral posture position will change the center of gravity and require a correction to stay on the exercise ball. The stomach muscles are required to work the whole time to keep this balanced, neutral posture.

Thera-Band Exercise Balls are inflatable balls used to strengthen muscles to improve posture and help prevent back pain. Each exercise ball comes with two plugs and an inflation adapter, along with the Thera-Band® Exercise Ball Guide Poster detailing 24 exercises. They are weight-tested to support 1,000 lbs. of static weight. Five sizes are provided to allow for user height variations.

China Gel for Foot Pain

April 11, 2007

China Gel foot pain relief

The foot absorbs the brunt of punishment in your daily activities. It supports your weight, is a shock absorber, serves as a lever for mobility and provides balance. Pain can begin with a structural flaw in your foot, improper technique in your stride, ill-fitting shoes or overuse. Other medical conditions may become symptomatic in the foot, including diabetes, vascular, and nerve problems.
 

Massaging China-Gel into the joints and muscles of the affected area two to three times a day will help to ease soreness and pain while reducing the inflammation. When massaged properly into the skin, China-Gel stimulates circulation and the body’s endorphin response to pain providing effective relief to any flare-ups or chronic aches making it a great alternative to oral medication.
