Cubital Tunnel: The “Other” Tunnel

Posted on by Rose McAndrew
“Just one more page.”  One minute you're being pulled into a great mystery novel and the next thing...your fingers are tingling.  Shaking out your hand and moving your elbow in and out seem to return your fingers to normal but a few pages later, the tingling returns, especially in the small finger.  Perhaps your first thought is, “Carpal tunnel syndrome.”  A quick Internet search only causes more confusion.  You might have cubital tunnel syndrome.

Stretch of the Week: Seated Twist

Posted on by Rachel Lackowski
Week three of October brings us to a seated twist with a chair. Try to use a chair that does not swivel, otherwise this stretch will be hard to accomplish. You will also need a book or yoga block or something similar in density and size. The only contraindication for this twist is if you have severe sacral issues. Read More

Chronic Pain

Posted on by Lori Diamos
Pain, though far from enjoyable, is something every one of us will experience at some point in our life.   In many cases pain is acute and caused by some type of trauma, incident, surgery, disease, or illness and there's an end in sight once the healing process occurs. Chronic pain however is a different animal as this type of pain persists sometimes days, weeks, months, or even years. In fact, you may be surprised to find out chronic pain affects more people than coronary heart disease, diabetes, and cancer combined. Below is a chart from the American Academy of Pain Medicine which depicts this comparison. Read More

Stretch of the Week: Downward Dog

Posted on by Rachel Lackowski
October is my favorite month. I might be biased because it's my birthday month;) But all the leaves changing beautiful colors and fall festivities really lifts my heart! We have to be mindful though as the colder months approach because we end up being inside many more hours. This means that if you sit for your job, you may end up sitting even more when you get home! So this month will be all stretches you can do with a chair while you're at work (or wherever you like). We have to take a break every now and then to stretch those muscles that are in a fixed position for hours. This month we will focus on the muscles that get shortened while we sit, mainly the hamstrings and the pectoral(chest) muscles. We will also target the muscles through the side body to counteract the slouching and poor posture that happens from sitting too long.  Let's get started! Read More
