Inflammation of the Bursae
Painful and often debilitating, bursitis occurs when tiny sacs of joint fluid called bursae become inflamed due to excessive exertion and pressure.

Areas of the body most commonly affected by bursitis are the shoulders, knees and elbows, but the condition can also affect hip joints as well. Click here to learn more
Lateral Epicondylalgia
Tennis players are not the only people who can suffer from lateral epicondylalgia, or "tennis elbow". Anyone who uses their arms and the elbows in particular, is susceptible to developing lateral elbow pain affecting the extensor tendon, which is the tendon responsible for bending and extending the elbow. Athletes, manual workers, servers, people who play certain instruments for a living and avid swimmers may experience tennis elbow at some point in their active lives. Click here to learn more
What is Plantar Fasciitis
The soles of the feet contain connective tissue called plantar fascia that can become inflamed and painful due to simple overuse or abnormal, repetitive pressure on the arch of the foot. Plantar fasciitis occurs when tiny tears in these bands of fibrous tissues cause pain as well as difficulty walking and bending the foot upward, as when the toes are brought forward towards the shin. Occasionally, plantar fasciitis that is neglected and worsens will cause knee pains that are misdiagnosed as tendonitis. Click here to learn more
Tendonitis Overview
Muscles remain attached to your bones via tendons, tough ropes of tissue that facilitate movement and assist muscles in moving joints and bones. Because we use our muscles for just about any type of physical activity, tendons are more susceptible to overuse and inflammation more than ligaments, which are tissues that connect one bone to another.

Inflammation: Causes and Treatments
Inflammation is a response that the body experiences after certain traumas such as irritants, burns, infection, injury, or damaged cells.

Relieving Lower Back Pain
For most people, exercising while suffering a backache is the last thing they want to do but performing moderate physical activity may actually help reduce lower back pain by stimulating release of endorphins. Naturally created by the body and serving to inhibit pain signals from reaching the brain, endorphins are rapidly manufactured during moderate exercise as blood is pumped into all areas of the body for an extended period. Even walking at a brisk pace for 15 minutes provides enough exercise for endorphins to alleviate back pain as well as a host of other conditions like headache, anxiety and depression.

Back Pain Relief
Considered a neurological disorder that remains a close second to the common headache as the most reported pain condition, back pain needs to be professionally assessed before initiating a treatment plan. When serious medical problems such as spinal stenosis, herniated disc or even a tumorous growth is causing back pain, more aggressive procedures are necessary to prevent worsening of the pain as well as the condition.

The Science of Inflammation
The most overt characteristic of inflammation is that the body receives a stimulus that it registers as pain. Pain is a nervous system response to a stimulus that the body perceives as harmful. Therefore pain is a perception that the body creates when care need to be taken to a particular tissue or area of the body. Click here to learn more
Handling Bursitis
A bursa is a liquid-filled cavity that protects and lubricates the joints. Bursitis is an inflammation of the bursa. Overuse of the bursa, repeated pressure upon the bursa, or bumping and bruising of the bursa may cause bursitis. Click here to learn more
Pain Management: Muscle Pain
Rigorous physical activity can often lead to muscle pain, particularly when a new workout regimen has been started. Overexertion or repeated engagement of one muscle group over a short period of time can result in muscle pain. The amount of pain experienced changes with the type of strain or overextension being put on the muscle or muscle groups. Click here to learn more
What is Inflammation?
Inflammation is a biological response to stimuli that the body considers harmful. Such stimuli can include irritants, damaged cells, or pathogens. When inflammation occurs, an individual is likely to experience pain, swelling, redness, and heat on the affected area. Click here to learn more
Common Causes of Back Pain and How to Relieve It
Only the common cold sends more people to the doctor's office than back pain. In fact, back pain is one of the top three reasons why patients undergo surgery and one of the top five reasons for patients being admitted to a hospital. Because our backbone, or spine, must allow us to be both flexible and rigid in order to support standing and sitting positions, this mechanically challenging expectation is often prone to injury and inflammation. In addition, the intricate arrangement of the spine's muscles, ligaments, vertebrae, nerves and cushiony discs leaves the back vulnerable to all kinds of unnecessary stress that promotes degeneration, inflammation, the development of herniated discs and sciata.

Relieving Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Pain Naturally
When the hands and fingers are routinely engaged in repetitive actions that insist on improperly placing them in positions causing extreme pressure on the median nerve, carpal tunnel syndrome may result that can restrict movement and cause pain, stiffness and numbness. Underneath the wrist lies a narrow pathway constructed of ligaments and bones through which the median nerve passes through. Originating near the shoulder area, the median nerve is one of several nerves running through the human arm for the purpose of sensation, feeling and strength. Click here to learn more
Symptoms and Causes of Temporal Myalgia Headaches
Unlike migraine, cluster or sinus headaches, temporal myalgia headaches occur when muscle injury, muscle inflammation or viral infection is the primary cause of the pain. Temporomandibular joint disorders, or disorders affecting the muscles that connect the skull to the jawbone, are another frequent cause of temporal myalgia headaches. Branching out from the neck's carotid artery and extending into the temple, the temporal artery creates throbbing sensations of pain when it is inflamed due to muscle stress from one or more of these conditions.

What is Tennis Elbow?
Tennis elbow is the colloquial term for an overuse injury occurring to the elbow that causes pain when the arm is extended. People affected by "lateral epicondylitis" (the medical term for tennis elbow) may also experience a weakened grasp that prevents them from securely grabbing onto smaller items.

Diet Tips to Reduce the Pain of Rheumatoid Arthritis
Since RA is an inflammatory disease of the joints, implementing an "anti-inflammatory" diet may relieve some of the pain and stiffness caused by the disease. Foods that reduce the production of free radicals--harmful, unstable atoms that damage healthy cells and contribute to cancer, heart problems and conditions related to aging--contain polyphenols and bioflavonoids. Found in garlic, blueberries, oregano, citrus fruits and green tea, these compounds inhibit free radical damage that not only slows RA's progression but also helps lessen blood cholesterol levels.

How to Relieve the Pain of Bursitis
Elbows contain a fluid-filled sac called the bursa that acts to cushion the sensitive area between the skin and bone. Inflammation and swelling due to an increase in fluid often occurs when the bursa is traumatized or irritated due to injury, infection, gout or rheumatoid arthritis. As a result, bursitis produces painful and sometimes debilitating symptoms such as a burning sensation, stiffness of the elbow joint and occasionally shoulder pain if the bursitis is severe.

Tips to Avoid Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Repetitive activities performed several hours each day using wrist, hand and finger movements may put someone at risk for experiencing carpal tunnel syndrome. This disorder describes a set of symptoms produced when consistent, long-term pressure affects the median nerve, the only nerve that passes through the carpal tunnel within the wrist and further on into the hand.
