Common Golf Injuries

Golfers Musculoskeletal Injuries Awareness.

It is frequent for many golfers to develop a golf injury and that can be at any stage of game playing. Though there is an increase in some people, who have taken an interest in golf the awareness about golf injuries is minimal. People usually are lured into it by watching other professionals play, but not many make any effort to find out what back draws do they get if it’s played wrong.

Golf is a relatively easy sport, yet it can still sometimes be difficult to play for some. Golf is considered to be a low-activity game, meant for retired senior citizens. But looking at the alarming rate of injuries suffered by golfers, one can now sincerely doubt that golf is a laid-back game.

Common Golfing Related Injuries Awareness.

One of the most common injuries that golfers experience is the back pain. Undoubtedly golf back pain develops because of unconventional body posture in a golf swing. Acute low back pain, arthritis, and herniated disc problem are types of back pain that a golfer can experience. Recommended prevention technique for back injury is to stretch back core muscles through proper golf exercise.

The game causes a significant number of injuries to wrist; more severe if correct swing action is not applied, including tendonitis, fractures and nerve injuries. Flexibility exercises should also be practiced to reduce pressure on tendons. Wearing wristbands helps in absorbing the shock during impact, keeping intact the delicate muscles around the wrists.

Golfer’s Knee Injury

Another significant injury that doctors mostly face is a knee injury which could be due to a wrong swing or constant bending and walking on the golf course. Sometimes the knee swells not allowing the golfer to play comfortably. If pain persists, even after medication, then the physiotherapy might help people with a critical condition. A professional can suggest you the best posture.

Golfer’s Shoulder Injury

Another frequent physical complaint among golfers is an injury to the shoulder. The main shoulder muscles used in a golf swing are the rotator cuff muscles. The potential for injury is worsened by a lack of muscle strength and flexibility in this important muscle group. Stretch out the arms, shoulders, and back pre and post game is recommended. A couple of minutes of jogging or a brisk walk around the golf course will increase blood circulation in the muscles.

Following Doctor’s Orders

Many golfers survive serious injuries, but some make it worse by not following the doctor’s advice. If you have suffered an injury, try to take proper rest before resuming the game. Once you are back on the golf course try to keep a lighter hand on the power play. It is recommended that you take few tips from professionals on how to play again after an injury so you can avoid experiencing the similar injury.

Do you have to be in shape to play golf?

Golfer Pixabay-skeeze

There’s belief that one doesn’t have to be in shape to be a good golfer. Such portly individuals perpetuate as Craig Stadler and John Daly (Both weighing in at a modest 300 pounds. Maybe they were sumo-aspirants at one point?) who go on to win tournaments despite the invasion of Paunch DeLeon they have going on around their midsections. These two and others like them are the exception, not the rule, and I guarantee you they would be better players if they were in better shape. Not to mention they would be able to play longer.

How to Do It

The goal is to prevent Musculoskeletal Injuries.

There’s more to fitness than taking a club made of lead and swinging it over and over. To be properly conditioned one must focus on three things: strength, stamina, and flexibility. For power, you need strength. You Need Strenght, to make it all the way to the 18th hole. And to have great technique, a golfer must be flexible. It works for Tiger Woods, and it can work for you, too!

 

The Products to Help:

Secrets To A Powerful Golf

DVD
• Get Stronger
• Increase Your Stamina
• Hit your drives 20,30 even 40 yards longer

I’ve been golfing for over 20 years, and thankfully have never had an injury keep me down. I’m not getting any younger, however, and I’ve become more focused on golf fitness as a result. Two products have helped me get closer to my goals and are available to others in the fitness section: Roger Frederick’s Stretching and Flexibility on DVD, and the Golf Gym. Both are fantastic at improving your overall conditioning, and the Golf Gym even helped Pat Perez win the Bob Hope Tour! That sort of endorsement you can’t beat with a stick (Or should I say club?).

Flexibility the Key.

As one can expect, flexibility is one of the first things to go in an individual, golfers included. Flexibility is key to a golfer’s performance. If you’re not limber enough to turn on the backswing correctly, then you’re in the pit without a sand wedge, my friend. Greater flexibility improves a golfer’s range of motion and allows for stronger muscles. These two attributes together help a golfer swing true consistently, allowing the player to put the ball where he wants it. It’s been shown that improving your strength and flexibility can add up to 20 yards of distance off the tee. That’s quite a difference!

Injuries:

Body movement limitation results in improper or modified swing models which could cause injuries,

mainly back and neck pain, elbow and shoulder injuries. When a swing is performed repeatedly or executed improperly due to poor comprehension of the swing mechanics or physical constraints, injuries may occur. Golf related injuries may be a result of overuse, poor techniques, and poor physical fitness.

Serious about golf?

Get serious about golf fitness, then. Sure, you may be able to pull it off like some of our more rotund professionals out there whose idea of exercise is to dead-lift Krispy Kreme boxes. But, let’s just say that others have tried it against super heavyweight boxer ButterBean, thinking to beat him at his own game. The results weren’t pretty, and the odds of the same thing happening in golf are pretty high. Better your chances: think Tiger Woods, not Stadler the Waddler!

Musculoskeletal Injury Prevention-Avoid Pain

Though a variety of treatments are available to help people with MSD-MSI to recover and resume pain-free normal lives, prevention is always better than cure. Here are some of the best ways for Musculoskeletal Injury Prevention

Musculoskeletal Injury or Disorder—what is it?

lisa-Picture

Site Founder of Musculoskeletal Injury Prevention

A musculoskeletal disorder can be best described as an injury that affects the body’s musculoskeletal system or movement. This is an injury of the tendons, ligaments, joints, nerves, muscles, bones, blood vessels or cartilage in the legs, head, back, arms and the neck. These are the body’s supporting structures that bear the weight of the body and help in locomotion.

The Musculoskeletal pain caused by the injury can be acute or chronic; widespread or localized in 1 particular area. This depends on the degree of injury and cause. Some of the most common types of musculoskeletal injuries are lower back injuries, stress fractures, and tendinitis.

Did you know that according to the BLS (Bureau of Labor Statistics), Musculoskeletal Disorders accounted for nearly 28.8 percent of lost time injuries in the year 2010?

 In 2014 Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) accounted for 32 percent of all injury and illness cases in the workplace.

 What are the Causes?

MSD (Musculoskeletal Disorder) may be caused, aggravated or exacerbated by either sudden exertion or lengthened exposure to day to day or work-related activities that involve force, awkward posture, vibration, pushing, pulling, or lifting.

Performing these activities on a daily basis can cause wear and tear of the tissues and damage them badly. And as these activities are performed frequently, over the course of time, the body doesn’t get much time to recover and eventually, you start experiencing pain. Simply stated, the musculoskeletal fatigue tends to outrun the body’s recovery system and this imbalance eventually develops into a disorder.

Symptoms of Musculoskeletal Injury/ Disorder

Common symptoms include:

  • Twitching muscles
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Burning sensation in the muscles
  • Fatigue
  • Stiffness, numbness and tingling

Musculoskeletal Disorder Prevention Steps

Prevention is always better than cure. And we couldn’t agree more!

Therefore, below are some of the best steps that can help prevent MSI or MSD at work:

1.      MSD Risk Identification

It is crucial to identify the risk factors first that can contribute to the development of musculoskeletal injuries and disorders. Some of the common physical risk factors for MSD are daily activities that include repetition, local-contact stress, force and demanding work postures. Here, it is important to understand that presence of these risk factors is not merely enough to assess the problem but it also depends on the extent of exposure, such as how long the employee is exposed to the risk factor and how great the force is.

2.      Risk Assessment

This brings us to the second step which is risk assessment. Employers are responsible to assess the degree of MSI risk at the job or tasks performed by the workers. They need to ask where the risk is low, moderate or high. Based on this assessment, employers will be able to devise and implement quality MSI prevention controls in the workplace. A great way to assess the level of risk involved is to consult the workers who’ve suffered from MSI. This will provide employers with a representative sample.

3.      Risk Controls

Risk controls can be divided into three categories:

Engineering Control—This is design, alteration or arrangement of the physical-work environment, materials and equipment. Like a mechanical lifting-device, this is an engineering-control that can be used for lifting tasks and can reduce the risk of MSI.

Administrative Control—It includes the use & scheduling of staffing and resources available to improve how the tasks are both organized & performed, such as reducing work hours which can lessen the amount of repetitive motion.

Protective Equipment & Clothing—Providing workers with protective clothing and equipment can lower the MSI related risk. For example, vibration dampening gloves when using the chainsaw or knee pads for those workers who are involved in installing floorings.

Other control measures can be; to use better designed tools, to redesign workstation to avoid excessive bending or reaching, to modify work practices, and to rotate jobs.

4.      Educate and Train Staff

To ensure the success of your  MSI-MSD prevention process, from managers to engineers, supervisors and all employees (everyone) should be informed, educated and trained. They should get the training and have the information they require so that they are well-equipped to follow through and perform the tasks with minimal risk and full-safety.

Employees must learn and wear the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and use the correct Tools and devices for the function to prevent injuries.

Workplace Hazards

People who do physical jobs like lifting heavy objects can experience pain in the limbs and muscles. Individuals who lift heavy objects need to very careful since they are putting a strain on their bodies. It is important to keep the body aligned and balanced in such cases.
Many companies have individuals who work at their desks continuously without taking breaks. This can cause stiffness in the muscles and joint pains. The body parts that can get affected are the neck, back, hands and legs

Health Benefits of Yoga Include:                                                                                                                      Royalty Free Stock Photography

1, Cardiovascular System (heart and arteries) – which means they (Yoga exercises) rely on holding muscle tension for a short period improving cardiovascular fitness and circulation. Studies show that regular yoga practice may help normalize blood pressure.
2. Digestive system – improved blood circulation and the massaging effect of surrounding muscles speeds up a sluggish digestion.
3. Musculoskeletal – joints are moved through their full range of motion, which encourages mobility and eases pressure. The gentle stretching releases muscle and joint tension, and stiffness, and also increases flexibility. Maintaining many of the (different postures)encourages strength and endurance. Weight-bearing asanas may help prevent osteoporosis, and may also help people already diagnosed with osteoporosis (if practiced with care under the supervision of a qualified yoga teacher). Long-term benefits include reduced back pain and improved posture.
4. Nervous system – improved blood circulation, easing muscle tension and the act of focusing the mind on the breath all combine to soothe the nervous system. Long-term benefits include reduced stress, anxiety and fatigue, better concentration and energy levels, and increased feelings of calm and wellbeing

Slip and Fall Injury


Slip And Falls Injury On Commercial Grounds

If you are reading this article and you recognize this scenario as happening to you or a relative, then you should take steps to prevent this type of victimization.

For a start, you are entitled to proper and adequate compensation from the supermarket, for your injuries. If they wish to give you roses and an apology, then this should be in addition to appropriate compensation.

After The Accident

You are probably being given the run-around, after your accident. Make sure full details of the accident are recorded in the ‘Accident Book.’ Get the names and addresses of any other customer involved or who witnessed your accident. Write a formal letter of claim to the Manager at the supermarket and keep copies of all your correspondence.
Visit your doctor and report your injury so that there are medical records of the nature and extent of your wounds. Take photographs of any bruises which usually show up a few days after the accident. If you receive physiotherapy treatment keep receipts for each session of therapy to reclaim these expenses.

Taking Care Of Your Injuries

If you visit the hospital keep receipts of travel expenses. As the amount of compensation for your injuries will depend

Hospital-Emergency

on the nature and extent of the injuries you sustained. The level of set-off will increase where there are any fractures. Usually, these take some time to heal and sometimes the damage can be severe such as a hip fracture or fracture of the coccyx. The last injury can be very painful and occurs in slipping accidents where you fall on your bottom.

Your claim could arise from an accident in the supermarket car parking. You will be able to establish liability if there is a tripping hazard such as potholes and if you can establish that there has been a failure to maintain the car park.

However, most accidents will involve slipping on wet floors within the supermarket itself. This usually results from spillages such as water or liquids on the floor. Again, the supermarket should be able to show they have a system of cleaning and maintenance to avoid liability.

Injury Claims

Your claim for personal injury compensation should be handled by the supermarket’s public liability insurers. You are entitled to obtain details of their insurer to make your claim. Don’t settle for flowers and vouchers, from the supermarket,  for your injuries.

Spinal Cord Injury

The Spinal Cord Injury

Page 214 Nervous System

From the book The Human Body and Health. 2 October 2009, 08:48:03 By Sue Clark

Any powerful impact enough to cause damage to the spinal cord will inevitably result in spinal cord injuries. Although the ability to ‘fix’ nerve damage is still in its early stages, ensuring that a patient receives the correct form of treatment can make a difference between spending a lifetime in a wheelchair and regaining mobility.

What Is The Spinal Cord?

The spinal cord is the link between the brain and the body. Through the spinal cord nerve bundle, messages are sent from the brain, triggering electrical responses in the body’s muscles. This then translates into movement. An injury that affects the spinal cord effectively interrupts this flow of information, disrupting the communication between the brain and the body. Where the damage is located along the spine will determine the region of the body that ‘loses’ contact with the brain. Although surgery is getting better at repairing many of the body’s fragile systems, nerve damage is still an area that has a long way to go.

What Are The Long-Term Effects?

The prognosis for victims of spinal injuries differs dramatically from patient to patient. The section and type of the injury will determine, both, the long-term effects and the course of therapy and treatment for the patient. Every spinal injury is different, so what may work for one patient may be completely useless for another.

Long Term Spinal Injury Care

The medical costs associated with long-term spinal injury care are astronomical. Not only are the initial costs of surgery, rehabilitation, and treatment high, but also in the longer term, patients and their families will have to think about how a spinal injury could alter the lifestyle of the victim. Long-term care can include everything from basic pain medication right through to a complete home renovation to allow wheelchair access, specialist medical equipment, home care and continued surgery and rehabilitation therapy.

The body can perform some remarkable feats of recovery. Some spinal injury patients recover almost complete mobility, while others may be left dependent on attendants to do, even, the most fundamental of functions. But one area that is often overlooked is the psychological impact of a spinal injury.

Depression and Spinal Cord Injury

Mnental Health Pain Medication

Depression can be a real problem, particularly if the victim of a spinal injury was previously a very active or sporty person. The complete change in lifestyle may have long-term mental health consequences that initially may not be apparent. As part of a long-term care solution, many spinal injury victims also undergo intensive psychological therapy to help them cope with their change in circumstances. But the support of family members and friends is essential. A therapist is not always going to be on hand if a victim starts to feel the psychological impact of such a life-changing injury, so it is up to those around them to know what the ‘warning signs’ are and respond accordingly.

The aim is to create a balance for a spinal injury victim between particular, long-term care and empowering them to have as much independence as possible. Retaining their dignity is an important part of the healing process for spinal injury victims, and one that shouldn’t be overlooked during the recovery process.

Flat Feet and Ankle Pain

Flat Foot and Ankle Pain/Injuries

Flat foot is divided into two Categories:

1.Acquired flat foot which is a condition which develops after we have attained maturity.
2.A congenital flat foot is a common condition and often not of pathological significance.

Adult Flat Foot

The adult flat foot has many potential causes which include dislocation and fractures, foot abnormalities, arthritic changes and neurological conditions.

The commonest cause however of this foot problem is a dysfunction of one of the foot tendons, the posterior tibial muscle tendon. The methods by which the tibialis posterior tendon malfunctions are varied and ascribed to degeneration, inflammation or trauma.

Pathological changes in the tendon of the posterior tibial muscle have been shown to occur more commonly in patients who take steroids, have high blood pressure, are overweight or diabetic and have had injuries or operation to their midfoot.

In the group of joint conditions known as spondyloarthropathies the incidence of tendon dysfunction is higher, patients usually having a family history of joint problems.

Older people without particular medical conditions can also suffer this condition. In 10% of patients with rheumatoid arthritis, this tendon pathology may occur.

Underneath the medial malleolus of the ankle and for a short distance forwards exists a region of limited blood supply which impacts on the tendon running through this area, contributing to an explanation of why degenerative change might occur more readily here.

The tibialis posterior tendon contributes to the stability of the medial foot arch which has both passive and active supports. The static, passive supports for the arch include the spring ligament (calcaneonavicular ligament), the long and short plantar ligaments and the plantar fascia. The spring ligament is support for the talus or ankle bone and stops it migrating inwards or downwards.

The most significant active or dynamic supporter of the medial arch is the tendon of the tibialis posterior muscle.

As the muscle contracts, it lifts the inside of the medial foot arch and turns the foot in if it not on the ground.
If this muscle function is lost due to damage or rupture of this tendon, then the foot loses its principal arch support and inward turning action, allowing the outward turning muscles to act without opposition.

This results in the foot suffering three main changes to its postural balance:

1.The medial arch flattens

2.The front of the foot turn out

3. The rear of the foot turns out also.

Because the ability to stabilize the rear part of the foot and make the forefoot into a stable and rigid platform has been lost, the patient’s gait pattern is altered and less efficient.

Due to the loss of the powerful function of the tibialis posterior muscle, this makes the main calf muscles, the gastrocnemius and soleus act further back in the foot rather than at the forefoot. The ankle bone is forced downwards and inwards which stretches the spring ligament, gradually leading to the inside of the ankle collapsing down as the joints assume new positions about each other.

Initial patient report on presenting with problems secondary to acquired flat feet is that of a painful and swollen inner border of the ankle region and foot, particularly when on their feet.

Patients may mention they have noticed a steady lowering of the foot arch and that they are taking weight on the inner part of the foot now.

A reduction in strength and the pain may cause a patient to limp and reduce the effectiveness of push off in gait, with examination of the soles of the shoes indicating the abnormalities in patterns of walking. Foot assessment by a physiotherapist starts with the evaluation of the feet and arches in standing position.

Observation by the physiotherapist of the heel from behind will allow the visualization of the two outer toes if more show then the forefoot laterally deviates. The physio will assess the angle between the lower leg and the heel to determine the valgus angle of the hindfoot, an important determining factor in foot health. To rise on tiptoe the calf muscle power must be engaged, in a normal foot causing an inversion of the heel.

Sports And Foot Injury.

Rugby is a highly high impact sport which can take its toll on the body throughout the course of a match. The physical nature of the game means that injuries are somewhat more likely compared to other games, with the severity of an injury typically determined by the force of the impact from the opposing player.

Some wounds, however, are more common than others, with joints complaints covering the ankle and knee something all professional sportspeople will experience at some stage. This article will focus on some of the more severe ankle injuries a player can encounter in ligament damage.

What Are Ankle Ligaments?

Ligaments are the tough bands of tissue which connect the bones within a joint and are responsible for the overall stabilization of the joint, without stabilization, a player cannot expect to walk, run or jump. Any damage to the ligament can affect your overall ability to keep active and move freely.

If you suspect that you have suffered ligament damage, then it is advisable to seek a professional diagnosis where a course of treatment will be prescribed depending on the severity of the condition.

How Can I Injure My Ligaments?

Ligament damage is one of the worst ankle injuries a player may encounter as it can be very painful and will ultimately put them on the sidelines for an extended period. Overuse can result in ligament damage where a player continues to remain active on a sprain, with the instability leading to further injury. When playing on an uneven surface slip, trip or catching your foot in a divot can equally cause damage.

Ultimately, any forceful, sudden and unnatural movement of the ankle joint can lead to ligament damage.

How Long Is The Recovery?

There is no simple answer to this as it depends on the severity of your injury, how fast your body heals and the treatment program you adopt. Mild damage to the ligaments may result in a couple of weeks on the sidelines with physiotherapy being used to help strengthen the joint before getting back into action. Where a tear or rupture has occurred then you could be looking at months on the sidelines while the injury heals before getting back into light training.

What Are The Available Treatment Options?

Following any injury, it is important to adopt the RICE principles of rest, ice, compression and elevation. Should the injury fail to show signs of improvement following a few days of rest then you should seek a professional diagnosis as the damage may require further treatment.

Mild Damage.

For slight damage to the ligaments, physiotherapy can help with offering stretching and strengthening exercises to rebuild strength in the joint. You may also be advised to wear an ankle support during this time to provide additional stability and minimize the risk of you rolling your ankle and causing further damage.

Serious Or Complex Damage.

Where serious damage has been sustained surgery may be used to repair or even replace the ligament.
A player can expect to miss the majority of the season following surgery, with an intensive treatment program to follow to get you back on the pitch.
A rigid ankle support may be employed to offer stability in the aftermath of surgery, moving to a material based support to be worn when undertaking light training.

Shoulder Pain Arthritis Symptoms

Shoulder Arthritis  Pain And Related Conditions.

Musculoskeletal Disorder

Arthritis pain is one cause of loss of mobility in your pet as it is for humans. Arthritis pain is caused by inflammation, the process that causes the redness and swelling in your joints damage to joint tissues caused by the disease process.

Common Symptoms of Shoulder Arthritis

Pain is the most common symptom of arthritis of the shoulder. Often, the pain is aggravated by activity and progressively worsens. If the glen humeral shoulder joint is affected, the pain is centered in the back of the shoulder and may intensify with changes in the weather. Treatment depends on the severity of your symptoms and medical history.

The rheumatoid arthritis specialists (Rheumatologists) tailor a specific treatment based on your medical history. This may include anti-inflammatory drugs like analgesics etc. to ease the pain or administration of cortisone shots to control swelling and stiffness. The specialist may also suggest you medications (like prednisone) to reduce the risk of joint deformity.

Other Reasons Causing  Arthritis Pain.

BallWrist and Forearm Exerciser

AutoStart Spinner Gyroscopic Strengthener Ball Wrist and Forearm Exerciser

Other arthritis pain can be due to tiredness, or inflammation of the membranes surrounding the joints, tendons, and ligaments. There is no need to strain or to worry about applying too much pressure. With the authorization form your doctor, just spin the ball in your hand, and it will work the muscles and tendons in the area of your hand, arm, shoulder and even chest.
If you have arthritis in any of these areas, you will be surprised with exactly how much natural arthritis pain relief the Powerball provides.  

Symptoms: – The preliminary symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis include swelling of the joints. At first, the delicate lining of the joints is inflamed.
Gradually, the joints stiffen and turn red. You may also suffer from a low fever, loss of appetite, and/or fatigue. As the disease progresses, the synovial gradually becomes thickened. Common Rheumatoid arthritis symptoms include:

Causes:- In rheumatoid arthritis, specific antibodies present in the blood begin to attack the healthy tissues of the body.
The disease starts with pain and inflammation in joints. As it progresses, it starts affecting the muscles and other organs also.
The disease commonly attacks people who are between 40 to 60 years of age. Wrists and hands are some of the first joints to be attacked.

Natural Supplements For Arthritis Pain.

Glucosamine Chondroitin

Dr. Tobias MSM Glucosamine Chondroitin Joint Supplement

Natural supplements like glucosamine and chondroitin are also used for arthritis symptoms. Unlike salves and teas, natural supplements act to correct the arthritis pain by repairing cartilage damage from the inside out. It may take a day or two to notice the difference, but with constant use, the results are remarkable and long-standing.

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) For Musculoskeletal Disorders

Was originated by the Osteopath William Sutherland  between 1898-1900. The term craniosacral or cranial-sacral are based on the terms cranium and sacrum.

Where Can I Find A Craniosacral Therapist?

Skull Massage

Many, qualified and certified, physical therapists are providing a broad range of treatments in their clinics. They are making it possible to handle cases ranging from severe spasms to sports injuries. Even, skeletal problems in children and infants are being treated by these well-trained individuals.
In the region of Elmbridge, these physiotherapists have their clinical set ups, where Pilates classes are being held on a regular basis as a treatment and exercise form.

Benefits of Craniosacral Therapy.

People may suffer from stiff joints due to lack of sufficient movement. After injury or trauma, there can be stiffness and bone pain. Many children suffer from problems due to injury during their birth. The conditions mentioned above may be corrected through the efforts of craniosacral therapy Elmbridge, provided by the experts in different forms of physical therapy.
Some birth problems and developmental defects can be improved with pressure on specific points on the limbs.
As the name suggests, these problems are related to the nervous system, linked to the craniosacral skeletal network. Therefore, it is obviously a sensitive area to be handled, and without expertise in craniosacral therapy, it would be difficult for physiotherapists or osteopaths to look into such possibilities.

Pilates Practices Combined With Craniosacral Therapy.

Pilates helps in giving flexibility and core strengthening as preventable exercises.
While craniosacral therapy Elmbridge aims to correct problems already present in the body, the prevention of stiffness and joint pains can be achieved by the Pilates classes.
Strength building and core exercises are taught in these sessions, which make it possible even for older adults.
The best part of Pilates exercises is that these can be practiced by people of all age groups and do not require a lot of painful weight lifting or running. With little efforts, muscles of the entire body can be exercised and yet the core strength is increased.

Convenient timing and relaxed treatment modalities making Pilates and craniosacral therapy massages a preferred treatment for several musculoskeletal conditions.
