Ergonomic Sitting Postures To Reduce Neck & Back Pain (Comprehensive Live Stream) - Dr Mandell
I will give you an in-depth understanding of the correct biomechanics of sitting. Incorrect sitting is the number one leading problem to poor posture, causing disc degeneration, arthritis, herniated discs, bulging discs, and spinal degeneration. Understanding these important ergonomic positions will help reduce chronic neck and back problems, and will help preserve the vertebrae and discs of the spine.

Correct Ergonomics of Sitting at a Computer Desk - Advice from Physiotherapist Christina Foch
The best way to sit at a computer Terminal - optimizing your energy! Brought to you by Christina Foch - Certified Physiotherapist, RN, Bsc Key Points RSI Risks of Not Sitting Correctly - Neck Strain - Eye Strain - Shoulder Pain - Lower Back Pain - Upper Back Pain - Poor Breathing Patterns - Weak abdominals/ Poor digestion - Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - Vericose Veins - Poor Circulation - cold extremities - Fatigue to body from overusing muscles that are compensating underused muscles Consider This - Proper posture at your workstation is a preventative tool to reducing strain and pain in the body. It's in your own interest to sit properly. When the body is in balance, it does not overuse energy which keeps your energy levels up. The body, when in balanced alignment, looks slimmer and more confident. Just by sitting up straight, your abdominal muscles are being used. This is the best workout you can do without the sweat and travel to the gym! This is a no cost, time efficient way to improve your self image and prevent future aches and pains to your body. If you are already in pain or strain, this change will help you on your way to an overall reduction of stress to your body. Instructions for Optimal Sitting at a Computer Workstation - Feet are flat on floor and hip width apart - Keep a fist distance between back of knee and seat to allow for blood flow and circulation (hint - if standing in front of chair, knees should be just above seat level) - Knees are in line with hips as much as possible - crossing legs or sitting more to one side impacts the distribution of weight and can cut off balanced circulation. - Hips are equal to or just slightly higher than knees - Shoulders are over hips with a natural curve in the back (ergonomic seats have good lower back support) - the better your spine is in neutral, the more open your lungs are to breathe and the more active your abs are to support balance in the body - Your spine roots down from the waist into a softness in the seat and lenghtens up from the waist at the same time. This creates length in the spine and optimum conditions for the nervous system running through the spine - Ears are over shoulders. This reduces neck and shoulder strain and can help ward off possible arthritis in the neck Keyboard and Computer Screen Guidelines - Arms are by sides and a bent at a 90-120 degree angle. - The elbows are higher than the wrists and the wrists are higher than the hands. This, again, follows the principle of circulation (Tip - think of a garden hose when you bend it and how it affects water flow; now bend your elbows and wrists and realize that this principle applies to you too! - Keep the flow open and easy) - Have an arms length between you and the screen. This is optimal for sight distance - Your eyes should line up somewhere between the centre and top of screen. You do not want to adjust your head up or down to see the screen. This will cause neck and shoulder strain and may cause arthritis to the cervical spine over time. (Tip - your chin is parallel to the floor)

Production Agriculture, Arthritis, and other Musculoskeletal Disorders: Emerging Issues
Dr. Steven Kirkhorn of the National Farm Medicine Center delivers the Keynote Address for the Arthritis, Agriculture and Rural Life Conference, May 11-13, 2011 at Purdue University. The session addresses how the evolving agricultural production technology affects the musculoskeletal system. As agricultural production has changed, new ergonomic stressors have affected different body parts and we now recognize different medical conditions arising from agricultural work. The NIOSH National Occupational Research Agenda has recognized this as a major concern. These new diagnoses and conditions require different preventive strategies in order to prevent long term medical conditions and disability. The presentation will provide an overview of ergonomic risk factors in production agriculture and how this can lead to the development of long term arthritis and lead to increased medical and workers' compensation costs. Further discussion is made of preventive measures through engineering technology, medical treatment and work practices.

Scorpion Stings For Arthritis
I say ouch to the next item Arthritis cure: Would you use THIS extreme treatment to ease the pain? Lauren Clark writing in the Express reported Pepe Casañas, a 71-year-old Cuban peasant, gets rid of the discomfort of his arthritis by allowing himself to be stung by a scorpion. The venom has analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties which reduce his pain. He keeps up to four scorpions near his house so he can guarantee being able to sting himself when he feels the arthritis returning, which is usually once a month. Casañas told EFE: "The sting doesn't hurt me a bit. And if they're using it as a treatment for cancer in Cuba, it has to be good. "About eight years ago, I started with this scorpion stuff. My bones were beginning to hurt me, arthritis, and it helped me to feel comfortable.” Casañas’ arthritis had got so bad it was impacting on his daily life, and so he decided to find his own solution. He explained: “I couldn't brush my teeth, or comb my hair. I got a scorpion, squeezed it, and it stung me twice, and look: my arm's doing fine.” Before that, he had used bee stings as a remedy, having come from a family of beekeepers - but he soon graduated onto the larger animal. While it might seem an unconventional way to treat the condition, scorpion venom is used as an ingredient in Cuban medication. Comment: Not something I recommend.

CERVICAL SPONDYLOSIS 10 Things You Should Never Do -  Dr. Alan Mandell, DC
Spondylosis is a broad term meaning degeneration of the spinal column from any cause. In the more narrow sense it refers to spinal osteoarthrosis, the wear and tear of the spinal column, which is the most common cause of spondylosis. The degenerative process in osteoarthritis chiefly affects the vertebral bodies, the neural foramina and the facet joints (facet syndrome). If severe, it may cause pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots with subsequent sensory or motor disturbances, such as pain, paresthesia, imbalance, and muscle weakness in the limbs. This condition is directly related to forward head posture, acute or repetitive trauma, long driving, poor sleeping habits, chronic texting, and poor ergonomics. Neck pain, tingling/numbness in arms or hands, headaches, facial pain, mid back pain, cervicogenic pain, occipital pain, ringing in ears/tinnitis, vertigo/dizziness, visual problems, and giddiness can occur.

Ergonomic Mice: 5 Fast Facts
See The 9 Best Ergonomic Mice on Ezvid Wiki ►► https://wiki.ezvid.com/best-ergonomic-mice Fact #1. Ergonomic mice are especially useful in reducing pain and discomfort for people suffering from ailments like arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome. However, switching over from a standard mouse can benefit virtually anyone. If you spend a substantial amount of time working at a computer, you may be at risk of developing a condition or sustaining other types of repetitive strain injuries. Fact #2. Office workers aren't the only ones to consider. Think about gamers, writers, and even students. In today's digital age, nearly everyone frequently uses a computer. When using a mouse, you subject the same muscles to small, repetitive movements for prolonged periods of time. They can have a greater impact on your long-term health than you may think. Fact #3. Ergonomic mice are designed so that the resting position of your hand, wrist, and arm is more natural. Some require the palm of your hand to be stationed in a vertical, upright position. This prevents the bones in your arm from crossing. Others help curb wrist movement by angling the thumb downward and encouraging you to use your arm more. In most cases, these positions are more comfortable for the user. Fact #4. A variety of models include numerous buttons placed in strategic locations across the device to facilitate certain functions. In many cases, these buttons can be re-programmed to suit your specific needs. These help create a personalized user experience. They also eliminate the need to reposition your arm to access the keyboard and accomplish certain tasks. Fact #5. Modern technology can be a wonderful thing. Today, you can choose from ergonomic mice with powerful Bluetooth capabilities, adjustable lighting, and laser tracking systems. Some even have a built-in power-saving mode. It automatically kicks in when the house has been idle for a certain period of time.

Back Pain Treatment: Posture & Workstation Ergonomics
Back pain is one of the leading causes of disability worldwide. It’s estimated that 80% of the population will experience back problems at some point in their lives. The back is composed of a complex structure of bones, joints, ligaments, and muscles that embody the cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and sacral regions of the spine. Any strain to your ligaments, discs, or joints can lead to the feeling of spinal pain. Most cases of back pain aren’t caused by conditions such as inflammatory arthritis, infection, fracture, or cancer. The simplest of movement patterns, such as sustaining your postural alignment, can be the source of your back pain. Since most people spend a majority of their time sitting at the office, it’s estimated that 54% of Americans who experience back pain spend most of their workday in a sitting posture. The majority of back pain is the result of muscle and ligament strain or weakness which can be prevented by having proper posture. If your spine isn’t balanced, you will inevitably have problems all across your back, including the neck and shoulders.

Do I Have Carpal Tunnel or Arthritis?
Do I have carpal tunnel or arthritis? I realize both can seem interchangeable at times, since they make moving your fingers hurt and seem eased by pain relievers. However, they are different health conditions. Yes, but how do I tell the difference? Carpal tunnel syndrome is a repetitive stress injury. You know you do not have arthritis when changing your routine like switching to voice dictation, doing other tasks in between to break up the repetition or getting ergonomic tools makes it go away. Arthritis can make your hands hurt when you type or cook too. Arthritis may be caused by an autoimmune attack on the joints, destruction of the cartilage or other reasons. You know you have arthritis when the joints balloon up and feel hot. I remember my grandmother’s hands looking like walnuts on little strings. But the swelling like that I thought was only in the autoimmune version of the disease. If you have carpal tunnel syndrome, the joints hurt but do not swell externally. It is internal swelling that causes the numbness and tingling you feel because of pressure on the nerve, and arthritis does not cause those symptoms either. What does arthritis in the hands do? You get swelling, warmth and tenderness to the touch, and if untreated, deformities in the finger joints. Have you seen carpal tunnel surgery scars? But that deformity is only after the surgery, whereas carpal tunnel only makes it hard to use the hands due to numbness and pain. Arthritis causes deformity whether you do nothing or not - well, if you do nothing to treat it. How are they treated? Arthritis is treated with anti-inflammatory meds and pain relievers. So is carpal tunnel syndrome. Arthritis is often accompanied by morning stiffness, sometimes in large parts of the body, whereas carpal tunnel syndrome is not going to migrate up the elbow or shoulder. And arthritis causes joint stiffness before pain, whereas carpal tunnel just hurts to move. Assuming the nerve is not so compressed you can’t. It would be numb but not unable to move. With arthritis, particularly rheumatoid arthritis, you can’t move the affected fingers though the feeling is fine. So carpal tunnel affects the nerves, while arthritis affects the joints. Another difference between arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome, assuming the arthritis is not triggered by a severe injury, is that arthritis is in the joints equally, like both hands. It is rare for both hands to have carpal tunnel syndrome equally. So if it is mostly the hand I use the most, it is probably carpal tunnel syndrome. But regardless of what you think you have, see a doctor so you do not have it get worse, and lose partial use of the hands.
