How can you diagnose pain?
Your healthcare professional will perform a physical exam and ask questions if you are seeking medical attention for pain. You should be able to describe your pain, including its origin, intensity, duration, and severity. You may also be asked by your doctor: How pain can impact your life If you have any other symptoms If there are triggers that make it worse, If you have any medical conditions, please let us know. If you have suffered any recent injuries, illnesses If you have recently made changes to your exercise or diet regimen, If you are taking medication or supplements Your doctor may order the following tests depending on your symptoms and your medical history to determine the cause of your pain. To check for infection, blood tests, stool tests or cerebral spinal fluid tests are all available. Endoscopy is used to examine your reproductive, gastrointestinal, and respiratory tracts for damage. X-rays, CT scans, MRI scans or ultrasound scans can be used to determine if there are any signs of damage to your muscles, ligaments or bones. To collect tissue for analysis, biopsy Nerve function tests to find out how your nerves work Psychological tests are used to detect depression. Functional pain syndromes are those where there is no evidence of underlying disease. After other possible causes have been ruled out, these syndromes can be diagnosed based only on the symptoms. How can pain be treated? The cause of pain, if any, must be addressed. Once the cause of acute pain has been addressed or eliminated, it will usually go away. Chronic pain, particularly if it is from an unknown cause, can be more difficult and costly to manage. You might experience pain from an injury. It might heal on its own or you may need medication, surgery or other medical attention. An infection can cause pain that doesn't go away on its own, or it may require medication or other treatment. Your doctor may prescribe medication, surgery or other treatments to treat chronic conditions such as arthritis, cancer, and chronic migraines. The healthcare professional may also recommend pain relief treatments. They might recommend or prescribe: Over-the-counter pain relief medications, such as aspirin, acetaminophen or ibuprofen, are available. Prescription anti-inflammatory drugs such as corticosteroids and certain COX-2 inhibitors are available. Opioid medications may be prescribed to relieve acute pain after surgery or injury. Antidepressant and anti-seizure medication may be prescribed to treat certain types of functional pain syndromes or neuropathic pain. Physical therapy can be used to relieve pain from injuries, multiple sclerosis or other health conditions. Occupational therapy can help you adapt your daily activities to reduce pain. Your doctor might also recommend complementary therapies such as: Biofeedback is a method where a therapist uses electronic devices in order to teach you how to control your body functions, such as breathing. Acupressure or acupuncture, where a practitioner stimulates pressure points on the body to relieve chronic pain. Massage is a technique in which the therapist massages muscles and other soft tissues to relieve tension and pain. Meditation is a way to relax and release tension and stress through meditation Tai chi and yoga combine gentle movements with deep breathing to stimulate the muscles and relieve tension. Progressive muscle relaxation is a method of consciously relaxing different muscle groups and promoting relaxation. Guided imagery allows you to visualize calming images through guided imagery Your doctor might also suggest lifestyle changes or home remedies that can help you manage your pain. They might suggest that you: Apply a cold pack wrapped in a towel to reduce inflammation and swelling from injuries or chronic conditions like arthritis. Warm baths or heating pads can be used to relieve stiffness, soreness or cramps. Avoid or limit certain triggers or activities that can make your pain worse. Take steps to reduce stress and make it less stressful Regular gentle exercise Get enough sleep Lose weight Follow the RICE general rule for minor injuries that do not require medical attention. The injured area can be treated Apply a towel-wrapped cold or ice pack to the area. Ice it for between 10 and 20 minutes. Apply pressure to the area. Wrap it in an elastic bandage that provides support but is not too tight that it causes numbness. Lift the area that is injured above your heart
[Jump-Ahead January] Sports in March
* [Jump-Ahead January] is a site-wide event held by the moderators to look ahead of the year and look at some of the things to look forward to in each of our communities! You can check out the general announcement card here ---> Announcing Jump Ahead January! [JJ] and you can check out the announcement card for the Sports community here ---> [Jump-Ahead January] Sports! Up second for Jump-Ahead January is March! And what's the first thing that comes to mind for Sports fans in March? MARCH MADNESS! Well to be honest, I wasn't interested in college basketball, until I started attending college that happened to have a decent basketball team, the Georgetown Hoyas. And I will try to stray away from calling Georgetown one of the best (but we were back in the 80s), but that's basically how I started following college basketball and eventually dedicate my March to the NCAA Men's Division I Championship. Last year's champ was Duke and I'm pretty sure @TravisVeck had a blast! And this year, starting on March 15th, 68 Division I schools will compete once again in the single-elimination tournament that we have come to call "March Madness". My hopes aren't high for the Georgetown Hoyas, but I just wish they would play at least three games before having to go home. I mean they did just beat #5 Xavier Musketeers 81-72 on the road! Ha! I bet sports fans are excited at the thought of filling one of these very soon! So here it is, my second card for the event Jump-Ahead January!

8 Things a Chiropractor Can Treat
Conditions Chiropractors Usually Treat Chiropractors treat conditions that affect the structure of your body. Their goal is to alleviate pain and improve function. They do not perform surgery or prescribe drugs. They adjust your spine or other body parts to achieve the proper alignment. Chiropractic care is based upon the belief that a healthy body will lead to better healing. Here's a list of common conditions that can affect the spine. 1. Low back pain People seek chiropractic treatment for low back pain. Low back pain is often the focus of research on spinal manipulation. According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, some people suffering from low back pain can benefit from seeing a chiropractor. Research suggests that people suffering from low back pain can get better relief by visiting a chiropractor than going to their family physician. 2. Neck Pain Neck manipulations are a common treatment for neck pain that chiropractors use. These are also known as adjustments. These neck adjustments, along with exercises, may be more effective than pain medication for some neck pain. If you've been suffering from neck pain for some time, but it isn't due to injury, a chiropractor may be a good option. Chiropractic care may be able to treat this type of neck pain. 3. Tension Headaches If you suffer from tension headaches, a chiropractic adjustment may be able to help. They are a common form of headache that causes pain in your neck and back. Tension headaches can be caused by stress and poor posture. The chiropractor may adjust your neck and offer stretching exercises. A chiropractor may also recommend healthy ways to reduce stress or relieve headaches. This could include proper posture and body mechanics. 4. Headaches due to migraine Research has shown that chiropractic spinal manipulations can reduce migraine frequency, pain, and decrease the need to take migraine medication. It is unclear how this happens. According to the study, chiropractic care may reduce stress levels, which could in turn decrease migraines. Certain foods may trigger migraine headaches. You can get advice from your chiropractor about nutrition and how to make changes in your diet to treat migraines. 5. Whiplash Whiplash, a neck injury that is often caused by a car accident, can be described as a neck strain. Whiplash can cause stiffness and pain in the neck. You may feel more pain if you turn your head. You might feel dizzy, nauseated or even sick to your stomach. A chiropractic adjustment might be helpful. The chiropractor might also recommend that you exercise and stretch at home and teach you how to use heat and ice to reduce swelling and muscle spasms. 6. The big joint located at the bottom of your spine is called the sacroiliac joint (SI). SI joint problems can cause low back pain in a different way. This pain may be felt in your buttock, or back of your thigh. This type of pain is treated by chiropractors using a chiropractic adjustment. A chiropractor may also help you avoid straining your SI joint. He or she may also suggest exercises to strengthen your core muscles. These are the muscles that support this joint. 7. Shoulder pain When you think of chiropractic care, your thoughts probably turn to back and neck pain. A chiropractor may be able to help you if your shoulder is stiff or painful. This is known as frozen shoulder syndrome. A person with frozen shoulder syndrome may experience less pain and more movement following chiropractic care. Your chiropractor will help you to stretch your shoulder muscles and teach you how to do more at home. 8. Knee Pain Osteoarthritis of the knee is most often caused by wear and tear to the joint. This is a common condition. This condition might be treated with chiropractic care. Sometimes, chiropractors offer back adjustments in addition to knee adjustments. This treatment is more effective than just knee exercises. After a few weeks, some people who have had chiropractic adjustments report less pain and more movement.
Wettquoten – Arten und Berechnungen
Wenn Sie auf ein Sportspiel zwischen den Teams A und B wetten möchten, möchten Sie zunächst wissen, wie viel Sie gewinnen würden, wenn Sie das Ergebnis richtig vorhersagen würden. Tatsächlich zeigt Ihnen der Buchmacher als Erstes die Quoten, denn sie sind genau das – Zahlen, die Ihnen sagen, wie viel Sie gewinnen, wenn Sie die Wette gewinnen. Obwohl sie alle den gleichen Betrag haben, werden Sie bei verschiedenen Sportpokes keine einheitliche Zahl finden, da jeder eine bestimmte Methode zur Angabe der Quoten anwendet. Dieser Artikel beschreibt die verschiedenen Arten von Wettquotenspezifikationen und wie Sie die jeweils zu erwartenden Gewinne berechnen. Überprüfen Sie auch: EM 2021 Wetten Es gibt drei verschiedene Arten von Quotenspezifikationen: Dezimalquoten, auch als europäische Quoten bekannt, fraktionierte Quoten, auch als britische Quoten bekannt, und amerikanische Quoten . Vielleicht wegen ihrer korrekten Darstellung der Situation werden die Dezimalformen als die Standardspezifikationsmethode angesehen. Der Zweck der Quotenspezifikation, in welcher Form auch immer, besteht darin, den Geldbetrag, den ein Wetter setzt, mit dem Betrag in Beziehung zu setzen, den er/sie gewinnt. Dazu muss man mit drei Terminologien vertraut sein: Einsätze, Gewinne und Auszahlungen. Einsätze sind der eingesetzte Geldbetrag, Gewinne sind der bei einer Wette gewonnene Betrag und Auszahlungenist der Gesamtbetrag, der gezahlt wird, wenn eine Wette gewonnen wird. Auszahlungen sind natürlich Gewinne plus Einsätze. Obwohl diese Terminologien trivial erscheinen mögen, sind sie Herz und Seele der Quotenberechnungen. Außerdem ist es wichtig, drei weitere Terminologien bezüglich der Stärke der Teams in einem Spiel zu kennen; sie sind Evens, Odds-on und Odds- Against. Evens sind, wenn die beiden Teilnehmer gleich stark sind und es daher keinen Favoriten oder Außenseiter gibt; Sie setzen 1 $, um 1 $ zu gewinnen, wenn keine Provisionen beteiligt sind. Odds-on ist die Quote des Favoriten und in diesem Fall sind die Gewinne geringer als die Einsätze. Quoten-gegen ist die des Underdogs, bei der die Gewinne normalerweise höher sind als die Einsätze. Im häufigsten Fall von Sportwetten auf ein Spiel zwischen zwei konkurrierenden Wettkämpfern (gerade Quoten) betragen die beiden zugewiesenen Quoten beispielsweise 1,90 in Dezimalquoten, 9/10 in Bruchteilen und -111 in amerikanischen Quoten, alles von was dasselbe bedeutet: "Einen Dollar wetten, um 90 Cent zu gewinnen". In der Tat, wenn keine Provision involviert wäre oder wenn die Wetten nur zwischen Freunden getätigt wurden, diese Quoten wären für die drei Arten von Quoten 2,0, 1/1 bzw. 100 gewesen; sie bedeuten "einen Dollar wetten, um einen Dollar zu gewinnen". Dezimalquoten (europäisch) Dies sind einfach Faktoren, die angeben, wie oft der Einsatz ausbezahlt wird. Zum Beispiel bedeutet eine Quote von 2,50, dass die Auszahlung das Zweieinhalbfache des Einsatzes beträgt, oder für jeden eingesetzten Dollar beträgt die Auszahlung 2,50 $. Auszahlung = Einsatz * Dezimalquote Gewinn = Einsatz * (Dezimalquote - 1) Bruchquoten (UK) Die Bruchzahlen hier bedeuten, dass ein Einsatz in Höhe des Nenners zu einem Gewinn in Höhe des Zählers führt. Zum Beispiel bedeutet eine Quote von 10/11, dass 10 Einheiten mit einem Einsatz von 11 Einheiten gewonnen werden, oder für jede 11€ Wette beträgt der Gewinn 10€. Gewinn = Einsatz * Bruchquote Auszahlung = Einsatz * (Fraktionsquoten + 1) Amerikanische Quoten (US) Amerikanische Quoten werden durch Zahlen angegeben, die immer größer oder gleich 100 sind, denen ein '+' oder '-' vorangestellt ist. Diese Zeichen sind keine mathematischen Zeichen; Sie sind einfach Symbole, die darauf hinweisen, ob Ihre Gewinne höher oder niedriger sind als Ihre Einsätze. Das positive Vorzeichen wird verwendet, um einen Außenseiter anzuzeigen, bei dem die Gewinne höher sind als die Einsätze, oder dass es sich um eine Wette mit Quoten gegen Wetten handelt; und das negative Vorzeichen steht für Favoriten- oder Quoten-Wetten. Diese beiden Quoten haben völlig unterschiedliche Definitionen und verwenden daher Berechnungen, die nicht miteinander verbunden sind. Negative Quoten geben an, wie viel Sie setzen müssen, um 100 $ zu gewinnen. Eine Quote von -110 bedeutet zum Beispiel, dass der Einsatz 110€ betragen muss, um 100€ zu gewinnen. Gewinn = Einsatz * 100/negative amerikanische Quoten Auszahlung = Einsatz * (100/negative amerikanische Quoten + 1) Positive Quoten geben an, wie hoch der Gewinn sein wird, wenn 100 $ gesetzt werden. Zum Beispiel bedeutet eine Quote von +110, dass 110 $ gewonnen werden, wenn 100 $ gesetzt werden. Gewinn = Einsatz * positive amerikanische Quoten/100 Auszahlung = Einsatz * (positive amerikanische Quoten/100 + 1) Einige herausragende Merkmale dieser Quoten. Dezimalquoten sind immer größer als 1,0, da '1' den Einsatz darstellt. Amerikanische Quoten sind immer größer oder gleich 100 (denken Sie daran, dass + und - nur Symbole und keine mathematischen Zeichen sind). Bruchquoten und amerikanische Quoten weisen auf Gewinne hin, während dezimale Quoten auf Auszahlungen hinweisen. Das könnte Sie auch interessieren: EM 2021 Wettquoten Gerade Quoten in Bezug auf eine faire Wette sind, wenn Sie genau den Betrag Ihres Einsatzes gewinnen. Geraden werden also dezimal durch 2,0, in gebrochenen Quoten durch 1/1 und in US-Quoten durch 100 dargestellt (-100 und +100 sind gleich). Bei Odds-on, d. h. wenn die Gewinne geringer sind als die Einsätze, was normalerweise bei einem Favoritenteam der Fall ist, liegen die Dezimalquoten zwischen 1,0 und 2,0. Bei Bruchquoten werden sie dadurch identifiziert, dass der Zähler (Gewinn) kleiner als der Nenner (der Einsatz) ist, und bei US-Quoten sind es die negativen Quoten. Im Falle von Odds-Agons, d. h. wenn die Gewinne größer sind als die Einsätze, was normalerweise bei einem Underdog-Team der Fall ist, ist die Dezimalquote größer als 2,0, der Zähler ist größer als der Nenner bei Bruchquoten, und sie sind die positiven Quoten in US-Quoten.
EMS Training Vs. Gym
Going to the gym can feel like a job. A tough job. Going to the gym involves building a habit that encompasses routine exercises to improve your physique. It requires constant motivation. Getting yourself there, encouraging yourself to work out, and ensuring you keep up the proper routine can feel like backbreaking work. This is one of the reasons many people are embracing EMS training. EMS training suits offer training at the comfort of your home, and you only need 20 minutes every couple of days to enjoy a full-body workout. Does this sound too good to be true? That is EMS training. Convenient, time- sensitive, and cost-effective. More and more people are actively shifting from traditional gym workouts to EMS workouts. To help you get on board with this high-tech training, we are looking at the pros and cons of conventional gym and EMS training. Why is EMS Increasingly becoming Popular? Workout EMS suits are effective workout companions that have been tested to ensure they provide the necessary exercise to tone, build muscles, or reduce weight. You can customize your workouts on the app to achieve the desired physique. However, a gym membership relies on how hard you work and how well you use the equipment at the gym. Achieving your ideal body is more challenging with a gym membership. Time When looking at the time it takes for a workout, either at the gym or with EMS, there is an evident winner. EMS training is more time-sensitive. EMS workouts require a mere 20 minutes every couple of days, unlike gym membership, where one has to dedicate 5-10 hours a week to see results. EMS training is quick and very convenient for individuals pressed for time. Location With a gym membership, you have to actually go to the gym to access the equipment and get a workout. However, an EMS suit can be worn anywhere, anytime. EMS training can be accomplished at the comfort of one’s house. You can achieve your fitness goals anywhere, whether at home or outdoors. Cost Gym membership is more expensive than EMS training. Buying an EMS body suit is a one-time commitment. You spend 800 dollars, and you have workout gear that delivers results and does not necessitate going to the gym. On the other hand, with a gym membership, you have to meet a monthly dedication of an average of $40 or $50 a month, and considering the initiation fee, the amount could go as high as $800 a year. While the gym and EMS training might seem tied at this point, most people fail to consider that a gym membership is a long-term commitment that requires an individual to be constantly motivated. The membership is useless if you do not use it and use it properly. People have been asking for a better system of achieving fitness goals that do not encompass spending hours on end at the gym, working out day in day out. EMS training is that answer. EMS workouts take less time and energy while providing the right amount of exercise to shape and change the body to achieve your ideal body. To order EMS workout suit visit our eBay store.

Best Basketball Shoes of 2013
What gets your vote? Converse's authentic Chuck Taylor All Stars was the first brand of basketball shoe to dominate the game. Coming to prominence in the 1930s, Converse's classic high-top designed to support the ankles for jumping high set the standard for other reputable manufacturers. Companies copied or competed with the best-selling brand, coming up with new trends and technology, but the original high-tops remained on top. In the 1970s Nike dunked their name in the basketball industry with their new Blazer, the shoe with the "swoosh", as did Puma with their signature low-top shoes. In the mid-to-late 70s Converse shot back with their new Weapons worn by Magic Johnson and Larry Bird. The 1980s saw some new Nike technology with the introduction of the Air Force 1 and its legendary "air sole" with its classic leather design. In the mid-1980s and the early 1990s rookie Michael Jordan gave different brands a name in the basketball industry, starting with his "too colorful" signature warm-ups that wound up banned from the court. What followed was Adidas' Ewings, which broke away from the giant manufacturer to stand on its own two feet, simply calling itself "The Ewings". Jordan began to put his own name on basketball shoes, the Air Jordan series. The next decade launched the Original Pump creating a rival between top-selling manufactures competing for best-selling models. But Air Jordan kept its position at the top while other manufactures experimented with all sorts of trendy bells and whistles designs and innovative technologies, but the bottom line remained under Jordan's feet. What some critics call "the Golden Era" of basketball (1994-98) turned out to be a time of experiment with alternatives from what the world had grown accustomed to. During this time, it was 'everything goes'. New high tech designs using newer materials gave just about every manufacturer a chance to shine. With the dawn of a new century of basketball, the name of the game was "retro". Shy of any new superstars setting new standards, manufacturers reverted to classic models. Labels experienced a lull, and the Air Jordan series was back. As were other manufactures. The biggest innovation of the new era may well have been the Shox BB4 made popular by star Vince Carter's seven-foot jump during the 2000 Olympics. That launched a new revival among rival manufacturers for newer, better technologies. Converse stays in the shoe game but is now owned by Nike. Just where basketball shoes will run with the superstars next, remains to be seen. -Epic Sports Basketball

College Rugby: Its Not Just About The Beer, But There Is Beer
When I stumbled into the involvement fair as a wee little freshmen I was there to sign up me and my new best friend (who I knew for a total of 3 days thus far) for Ski Club. I must have gotten a bit turned around because, by the time I got back to the dorm and walked into Ayanas room I told her I signed us both up for Rugby instead. "What?" I asked as she stared at me in shock. "They said we didn't need to know how to play and they wouldn't yell at us. "Also practice is monday-friday and starts tomorrow byeeeeeeeeeeee", and with that, we were on the team. And I think it is safe to say that Rugby should pretty much be a requirement for any girl who likes to have fun. You will meet the best friends ever playing Rugby. No one quite understands the struggles of a rugby girl, except another rugby girl. I have laughed, cried, thrown up and thought about dying, all in just one rugby game. And the girls were right there with me. We're a crowd who thinks bruises make us a lot sexier then push up bras and we have each others backs no matter what. Also blood does not faze us. Who gives a shit about body shaming Rugby girls get the a terrible rap. People always think of them as fat, ugly, or brick walls. Which is why its awesome to roll up wit a party looking super fit, super hot and ready to drink all the haters under the table. Female rugby players gotta stick together. And we do. So the body shaming ends the second you get into your rugby lifestyle (and it is a lifestyle). Get ready to be showed with support about how strong and amazing you are. You develop a dedication Its hard to stick with something, especially when it eats up every waking moment of your life. You fit practice around work and class, then your games are all day Saturday which makes Friday team bonding and carb loading. You may wonder why you are bothering when yore awake at 5:30 AM for an away game but the second you see your teammates, you'll get hype as fuck to mess people up. You learn ways to kick the shit outta anyone Rugby girls are a rowdy bunch. Not only do we have to deal with getting kick in the face almost every day at practice, we also have to deal with the male rugby team. No matter what happens, you will be able to stand up for yourself. Bar fights, street harassment or just plan assholes, gone are the days where you will be the meek girls standing in the corner. Rugby teaches you that you do need to have balls to have balls. I learned how to fucking Party You may think you know how to drink buttttt you don't. Your first drink up (aka getting drunk after a game) you leaned how to shoot the boot (both a glass and a shoe), win boat races and funnel full bottles of wine. I would say more but....you have to join to find out.
