In our body there are muscles, tendons, haircuts, ligaments, etc. When talking about an injury or a complaint, this is because the body has been damaged and hurts.
An injury is often a form of physical injury that is characterized by damage / and or irritation of the tissue. In many cases, the body is able to repair an injury. However, the question is where the injury comes from? If you know where the injury comes from, you can work on a solution.
The entire human body is covered. From the head to the toes. Or do you still suffer from the shoulder? Read a short description of the possible conditions below.
Are you experiencing complaints in the calf? It happens that we are busy or walking and that there is a pain in the lower leg. The pain can feel annoying or sometimes severe. Is it possible that you are hindered in daily activities or during sports? The pain can be caused by a lash or a stretched calf muscle.
The calf pain can also lead to Achilles tendon pain. The Achilles tendon is the most powerful and largest tendon in our body. An injury to the Achilles tendon can arise in different ways, either acute or chronic.
Unfortunately, an injury can also occur in the foot. One of the most famous injuries to the foot is the heel spur and the drop foot . Every day there are many people who walk with a heel spur. However, this can only make the complaints worse over time. Especially a lot of trouble with the foot when getting out of bed in the morning? It is important to tackle the heel spur complaints as soon as possible! This can be done using a night splint .
People also sometimes suffer from a drop foot. With a drop foot you have trouble keeping the foot up. This hinders the gait pattern. Normal walking can be hindered by this.
The thigh may also be affected. Often through a muscle tear or muscle strain. This can happen during exercise or during an unexpected movement. In the upper leg you have muscles on both the front and the back. This makes it possible to swing the leg backwards (hamstrings) or swing it forward (quadriceps).
As soon as you get out of your bed until you go back to bed in the evening, the ankle joint is actually stressed throughout the day. Many different forces arise. Sometimes the forces can become just too great. The ankle can then break . The surrounding muscles can also exert considerable forces. Just think about running. During running, the muscles around the ankle are maximally tensioned. If the forces become too great, the muscles can stretch or tear. This is then called a torn or torn ankle ligament . You use the ankle for all possible movements. After recovery of the ankle ligaments, the joint may still feel unstable . Firmness using a brace around the ankle can provide a good solution for this.
An injury to the ankle can also creep in slowly. Consider the problems below.
The knee, like the ankle, is a joint that is widely used every day. There are therefore many different ways in which a knee can become injured or feel painful. If the knee is overloaded this can lead to, for example, a jumper knee or a runner knee .
In addition to these injuries, patella complaints can also be considered. A patella is the Latin name for a kneecap. The kneecap can sometimes feel painful.
You may suffer from the groin. This can have several causes. The main reason is that the organs are blocked by muscles and tissue. As health decreases or there is a congenital defect, cracks can develop in the abdominal wall or in the groin. The abdominal wall may have gone bad as health declines or it may have an innate cause. When cracks occur in the wall, it is referred to as a hernia (in the groin) or an abdominal wall fracture (in the abdomen).
The back is a large body part and the complaints or pain can take place on different levels. In some cases, it is possible that people cannot specifically indicate 1 place where the complaints are located. It is then referred to as non -specific back problems. The complaints may even be located in the thighs, but where the complaints specifically come from is not always known. Hence good research needs to be done.
Like the knee, the shoulder is a commonly used joint. The shoulder is used for almost every movement. When walking alone, it is the arm that moves back and forth. However, an injury to the shoulder can also occur. For example, during sports, but also just while sitting in front of the computer, a shoulder complaint may arise. While sitting and applying a lot of repetitive movement, you may get a bursitis , frozen shoulder or shoulder impingement , for example.
The elbow joint is the joint that allows you to bend and stretch the arm. After long repetitive movements, it is possible that pain is generated in the muscles. Two known elbow complaints are the tennis elbow and a golfer's elbow . These two complaints are caused by an overload of the muscles. The size difference between the injuries is that the outside of the elbow hurts with a tennis elbow and the inside hurts with a golfer's elbow .
The wrist is the joint located between the forearm and the hand. There can be multiple causes for a particular condition. It could be that you have a personal accident during sports or just during a Sunday walk. The person tries to receive with the arms forward, so that you receive yourself with the wrists. There is a chance that a wrist is sprained or broken .
A thumb injury can develop acutely or chronically. In an acute pain complaint, a crash may be considered. Or with a lot of repeated movement or old age, there are sometimes ailments on the thumb.
When is the hand not being used? The hand is used for every movement, whether it is on the computer or to make a nice sandwich. Hence it can be very annoying if the hand is limited. In some cases we can provide you with advice and assistance with any injuries or conditions listed below.
