DrRic Injury inflammation and Food in the Yoga Practitioner (slide share edition)

  1. 1. Injury Inflammation and food in the yoga praCTITIONER<br />
  2. 2. Common injuries<br />Patellofemoral syndrome (kneecap pain)<br />Cervicalgia (neck pain flare up)<br />Lumbago (low back pain flare up)<br />Shoulder bursitis (rotator cuff impingement)<br />
  3. 3. Shoulder<br />R<br />Party Pooper<br />
  4. 4. The bursa -a sack of lubrication<br />That’s old news!<br />
  5. 5. Overinflated sack<br />You change the mechanics if its over inflated!<br />
  6. 6. Interpretation: Pain<br />Stretch receptors turn on pain receptors<br />
  7. 7. How can this happen<br />Preexisting injury flared up in class<br />Tight shoulders to start with, poor warm up<br />Tadasana<br />Bakasana<br />
  8. 8. (not my top 10) <br />Cervicalgia<br />Disc “disease”<br />Muscle spasm<br />Trigger point!<br />Topic: trigger points…..<br />Discuss!<br />
  9. 9. Trigger points = Janet Travell<br />Neck pain<br />Shoulder pain<br />Arm pain<br />Headache<br />
  10. 10. Lumbago = Back pain<br />Essentially same as cervicalgia<br />Disc disease very real in the low back*<br /> *but the treatment is the same! Shhh<br /> ** aka pinched nerve, sciatica, bulging disc, slipped disc<br /> impingement<br />
  11. 11. A surgical problem (but you wouldn’t be walking)<br />
  12. 12. PFS (Patellofemoral Syndrome)<br />Typically just as tracking issue<br />The cap acts as a pulley<br />The pulley has low friction surfaces<br />If alignment and “chores” are kept, good for 80 years<br />Warning Warning-push the alignment, the chores, the duty and “failure is eminent”<br />
  13. 13. Rubbing leads to friction <br />
  14. 14. Friction leads to damage (inflammation)<br />
  15. 15. The Injury<br />Px: It hurts when I do this……<br />Doc: So don’t do this…….<br /> -Henny Youngman<br />
  16. 16. Electron microscope OF A TEAR <br />
  17. 17. Soft tissue (ligament, tendon and muscle) gets over stretched and torn off its connecting points to bone.<br />The tissue reacts by sending more blood to the area and heat/redness prevail<br />Compensating areas start to fail when they can’t do the work of the originally injured part<br />A twist, roll, bend or fall occurs with immediate pain 0<br />Stiffness and spasm set in by 1day<br />Other areas start to spasm in 1week<br />
  18. 18. When tissue is torn/stretched:<br />Inflammatory phase starts day 0-5<br />Bleeding<br />PMN’s<br />Macrophages and platelets stimulates GF<br />Proliferative phase from day 5-21<br />GF stimulates endothelial cells, fibroblasts and myofibroblasts<br />Macrophages continue<br />Maturation phase from day 21-whenever<br />Fibroblasts<br />Increased collagen and tensil strength<br />The Problem<br />
  19. 19. Inflammation<br />When tissue damage occurs, the “cascade” starts<br />Normal tissues<br />*stomach<br />*kidneys<br />*platlets<br />*endothelium<br />Inflammatory sites<br />*macrophages<br />*synoviocytes<br />*fibroblasts<br />
