Student Reading label on soda can

If you sprained your ankle, would you jump off a table 15 times in a row? Then why in the name of all that is reasonable would someone with inflammation continue to fill their body with inflammatory foods? I get that the pain you would feel by repeatedly jumping on a sprained ankle would be […]

skeleton x-ray focus on hip pain

The knee may be the largest joint in the human body, but the hip is the strongest joint. Unlike the knee, which is a hinge joint designed to move in one direction, the hip is a ball-and-socket joint, capable of moving front to back, side to side, and around in a circle. To enable these […]

Is your exercise helping or hurting your back

People often make the assumption that the best way to fix their back pain is to do exercises that they think will strengthen those muscles. Maybe they do dead lifts. Maybe they’ll try planks, bridges or stretching. Maybe they’ll do crunches to strengthen their core. None of these exercises are necessarily bad. The problem is, […]
