In our body there are muscles, tendons, hairstyles, ligaments etc. The moment that there is talk of an injury or complaint, this is because the body has been damaged and hurt.
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 does the injury come from? If you know where the injury comes from, you can work on a solution.
The entire human body is discussed. From the head to the toes. Or do you still suffer from the shoulder? Read below a brief description of the possible disorders.
Are you experiencing complaints in the calf? It happens that we are busy or walking and that there is pain in the lower leg. The pain can feel annoying or sometimes severe. Because of this it is possible that you are hindered in daily activities or during exercise? The pain can be caused by a whip or strained calf muscle.
The pain in the calf can also lead to pain in the Achilles tendon. The Achilles tendon is the most powerful and largest tendon in our body. An injury to the Achilles tendon can occur in various ways, whether acute or chronic.
Unfortunately, an injury can also be formed in the foot. One of the most famous injuries to the foot is the heel spur and the foot drop . Every day there are many people who walk on with a heel spur. However, this can only make the symptoms worse over time. Especially a lot of trouble with the foot while getting up from bed in the morning? It is important to tackle the heel spur complaints as quickly as possible! This can be done with the help of 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 impeded by this.
The upper leg can also be affected. Often through a muscle rupture or muscle strain. This can happen during exercise or during an unexpected movement. In the upper leg you have muscles in both the front and the back. This makes it possible to swing the leg backwards (hamstrings) or to swing it forward (quadriceps).
As soon as you get out of bed until you go back to bed in the evening, the ankle joint is actually loaded throughout the day. Many different forces are emerging. Sometimes the forces can be just too big. The ankle can then break . The surrounding muscles can also exert considerable forces. Just think about running. While running, the muscles around the ankle are fully stressed. If the forces become too large, the muscles can stretch or tear. This is then called a torn or torn ankle bands . Use the ankle with all possible movements. After repairing the ankle straps, the joint can still feel unstable . Sturdy using a brace around the ankle can offer a good solution for this.
An ankle injury can also creep in slowly. Consider the problems below.
The knee, like the ankle, is a joint that is used a lot every day. There are therefore many different ways in which a knee can get injured or feel painful. If the knee is overloaded, this can lead to, for example, a jumper's knee or a runner's 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.
It is possible that you have trouble with 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 appear in the abdominal wall or in the groin. The abdominal wall can become bad as health diminishes or it can have a congenital cause. When cracks occur in the wall, we speak of a groin fracture (at the groin) or a abdominal wall fracture (in the abdomen).
The back is a large body part and the complaints or pain can occur at different levels. In some cases it happens that people cannot specifically point to 1 place where the complaints are. There is then talk of non -specific back complaints. The complaints may even be located in the thighs, but where the complaints specifically come from is not always known. That is why good research has to be done.
Just like the knee, the shoulder is a commonly used joint. The shoulder is used for almost every movement. While walking, it is the arm that moves forwards and backwards. However, an injury to the shoulder can also occur. For example during exercise, but also while sitting at the computer, a shoulder complaint can occur. While sitting and applying a lot of repetitive movement, you may for example get a bursa inflammation , frozen shoulder or shoulder impingement .
The elbow joint is the joint which ensures that you can bend and stretch the arm. After long repeated movements it can happen that pain is generated in the muscles. Two well-known elbow complaints are the tennis elbow and a golfer elbow . These two complaints are caused by overloading the muscles. The difference in size 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 between the forearm and the hand. There can be multiple causes for a specific condition. For example, you may have a personal accident while exercising or just during a Sunday walk. The person tries to catch himself with the arms raised, so that you catch yourself with the wrists. There is a chance that a wrist will be sprained or broken .
A thumb injury can occur acute or chronic. An acute pain complaint can be considered a fall. Or with a much repeated movement or old age sometimes ailments also arise on the thumb.
When is the hand not being used? The hand is used with every movement, whether it is on the computer or to make a nice sandwich. That is why it can be very annoying if the hand is limited. In some cases we can provide you with advice and help with any injuries or conditions listed below.
