Treating and Preventing Shoulder Injuries

Treating shoulder injuries is a very common occurrence in my office, especially amongst my competitive clients. Before we tackle how to rehabilitate a shoulder-based injury, we need to understand what supports the shoulder joint. 
 


Benefits of Overhead Presses

The shoulder is the most flexible joint in the entire human body. Our shoulder joint is formed by the union of the humerus, the scapula (or shoulder blade), and the clavicle (or collarbone). The shoulder is actually made up of two separate joints – the glenohumeral and acromioclavicular joints. These two joints work together to allow the arm both to circumduct in a large circle and to rotate around its axis at the shoulder. The glenohumeral joint is a ball-and-socket joint that is controlled by the intrinsic muscles that make up the rotator cuff.

Maximize Your Testosterone 

Testosterone is a naturally occurring hormone found in both men and women, and the hormone is produced within the testicles of men and within the adrenal glands and ovaries in women. The average testosterone count for men range from 300-1000 and the count for women averages from 15-70, and as more studies have shown over the last decade low testosterone levels can actually cause more harm than researches had previously thought.


Effectively Dealing with Blood Sugar Issues

Do you ever get severe chills while training? Ever hit a sense of lethargy that surpasses normal fatigue? Do your hands and feet become numbed and desensitized? Do you feel scattered mentally and lack mental focus? Do you feel nauseous? Do you feel intensity of hunger being at its highest? 

All these above questions are common symptoms of those who experience a condition called Fasting Hypoglycemia.  For many, this is a temporary issue that might incur from the result of long duration of activity with little to no source of carbohydrates fueling the body.  Many high endurance athletes can experience this especially under physical stress and overexertion.  You ask me why I chose this topic. Well the main reason is that I see this in quite a few cases with athletes I have coached.  Each case can range on severity but I keep it simple on trying to figure out the source of the problem.


The Positive Effects of Dietary Fats

Fats are many times viewed as the dark horse in the eyes of the average person in our society today. Told many claims that fats will increase the risk of heart disease, high cholesterol, increase fat deposition, and even diabetes. In all actual reality fats actually do the exact opposite in the negative view it sometimes is given.
