How do you BOSU?

April 9, 2008

The best thing about the BOSU Balance Trainer, besides its versatility, is that it adds fun to your usual workouts. Use it in place of your step for aerobic workouts (very tough) and while doing some traditional yoga poses, like warrior and triangle. It makes the workouts challenging and interesting.

Using the Bosu Balance Trainer can help improve:

Balance Because the BOSU Balance Trainer is never stable, you’re constantly engaging the small stabilizer muscles in the upper and lower body to keep you in place.

Kinesthetic awareness This is just a fancy word for your awareness of how the body is positioned at any given moment. This awareness is something that often declines as we age, so the Balance Trainer can help you stay connected with how your body moves.

Proprioception This is another fancy word describing how your body responds to external forces to keep your joints in the right position. When you stand on a Balance Trainer, all of your muscles are forced to contract to keep your joints in proper position. This helps make normal activities easier.

The Knuckle Baller Sports Massager

January 22, 2008

The Knuckle Baller Sports Massager The “Omni Directional Ball” is the key to the Superior Function and ease of use that you will enjoy with your Knuckle-Baller. The Knuckle-Baller takes the POWER of the Omni Directional Massage Ball to a whole new level.You can begin by applying pressure on the roller and then gently roll the ball in circular motions around the lower back. While moving it in circular motion, you can apply the necessary pressure. Once you are able to identify the spot from where the pain is originating, you can continue to massage the affected area for 10-20 minutes. The massage roller will, thus, provide you relief as it soothes and loosens the muscle tissue or ligaments. It will also gradually increase your blood circulation, leading to the healing of the affected area and elimination of the back pain.

Massage Techniques
The Knuckle-Baller is an outstanding aid in the application of many techniques including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Trigger Point, Reflexology and Cellulite Reduction.

Relief and Flexibility
The Knuckle-Baller can provide much needed massage relief for sore aching muscles, stimulate blood flow and reduce pain and swelling, thereby promoting healing and flexibility.

Versatile, Yet Easy to Use
The Knuckle-Baller will provide you a range of massage applications and techniques.

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.

Nosebleed Ice Pack for your First Aid Kit

October 25, 2007

A nosebleed can be pretty scary, especially if you don’t have them that often. But even those who suffer from frequent nosebleeds find them unnerving.
But a nosebleed usually isn’t that serious. And, by using a few simple home remedies, you can usually stop a nosebleed minutes after it started.

Holding your head back isn’t the best remedy for a nosebleed. Many people think the best way to stop a nosebleed is to hold your head back. But doing this will only cause you to swallow blood, which could cause nausea. It could also make you choke, cough, or gag. So, this is one nosebleed home remedy you should avoid.

Instead, sit up straight, with your head tilted slightly forward to prevent blood from running down your throat. You also shouldn’t lie down on your back if you have a nosebleed. Gently blow your nose. Gently blowing your nose will help clear out any blood clots that might be preventing a blood vessel from sealing
naturally. Pinch your nostrils closed to stop a nosebleed.

Use your thumb and forefinger to gently pinch the soft part of your nose shut for five or ten minutes, breathing through your mouth. (Use a napkin to catch any drips that squeeze through.) This will almost always stop a nosebleed.

If your nosebleed hasn’t stopped after the first five or ten minutes, try pinching your nostrils again for another ten or fifteen minutes. If the bleeding hasn’t stopped, you should head for the doctor’s office or emergency room.

Placing a cold cloth across the bridge of your nose will constrict blood vessels, and help stem the blood flow. Or use an ice pack. Nosebudd is a unique ice pack that will fit comfortably over the nose providing both cold and support to help end nosebleeds quickly and effectively. If your nosebleed was caused by a blow to the nose, applying ice will help slow the bleeding and reduce the swelling. The cold will also help blood clot a little faster. Wrap some ice cubes in a towel and gently rest it against your nose if you do not have a Nosebleed Ice Pack.

When to see a doctor

Usually, a nosebleed isn’t that serious. However, you should see a doctor if:
* You’ve applied pressure (pinched you nostrils) for the suggested amount of time, but your nosebleed still hasn’t
stopped.
* Your nosebleed is severe, and blood is gushing out of your nose.

NoseBudd is a great ice pack to have in your first aid kit. NoseBudd is a reusable device designed for application to the nose during a nosebleed. In order for the product to work properly, it must be placed in a freezer until the gel has become sufficiently frozen (at least 30-45 min. prior to use). NoseBudd is designed to locate cold only where it is necessary in order to stop nasal bleeding.
Unlike a bag of ice, NoseBudd applies cold in the specific areas of the nose where bleeding occurs – which avoids cold and numbing of the face. It is non-toxic and reusable.

Therma Moist Heating Pad by Drive

October 10, 2007

 

The Therma Moist Heating Pad requires no water to be added, as an outer flannel cover draws and retains humidity from the air. As the heating pad warms, the moisture is released from the flannel cover and onto the treated area. The heating pad is ideal for the treatment of arthritis, back pain, sprains and strains, muscle soreness, neck pain, headaches and sports injuries.

To clean, remove cover from heating pad. Machine or hand wash. Use mild detergent in cool water. Hang to dry or use set on cool gentle cycle in dryer.

Features:

* The positioning strap with Velcro-type closure ensures a secure, proper fit for maximum treatment

* The easy to use hand control features four heat settings and four time settings (Heat settings: 115/130/150/165 degrees Fahrenheit, 45/55/65/75 Celsius – Time settings: 15/30/45/60 minutes)

* Moist heat therapy is more effective than dry heat because moisture transmits heat more efficiently than air

* The heating pad will automatically shut off after treatment

* Three sizes are available to provide added convenience

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.
