SOUNDS FOUL DOESN'T IT!?!?😳😳. Well it's not!
The last few weeks I have had a few patients ask me "My back pain is not From my kidney is it???" Seems to be a big concern lately!
I don't say no right away before I "SMACK THAT FLANK!!!"👊👊👊 If I suspect Kidney problems, I will:
1️⃣Place one hand on the COSTOVERTEBRAL ANGLE (shown above on the video with my masterful artwork on the patients back)
2️⃣ Firmly hit it! 🔥🔥PAIN on this test =Trip to family doctor🔥🔥 What else would the patient tell me to lead me to conclusion of Kidney as being a cause?? 1️⃣ One sideD flank pain
3️⃣ difficulty peeing
4️⃣blood in urine
5️⃣ Recent urinary tract infection 😎In traditional Chinese medicine, the Kidneys are said to regulate the low back. When one has a kidney deficiency, they will have low back pain, poor libido, reduced vitality, low mood, yada yada. The above picture shows how you would treat the low back for pain and other kidney deficiencies. Since I am a Physio, I can only say I am treating pain! 😄On page two, Master Tung's points are magic🦄🦄 for improving low back pain and balancing your yingyang (errr.. I meant kidney!) You can try rubbing these in tiny circles for LBP!
In western medicine these points on the back correlate to:
1️⃣ lateral branch of the posterior primary ramus
2️⃣ anterior primary ramus
3️⃣ medial branch of posterior primary ramus.
All of these are significant in most forms of back pain⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️ ❤️Tag a friend who has low back pain, has kidneys, who can use this knowledge or a treatment like this❤️ Thanks for following😄
Repost @stefanduell SHOULDER PAIN SERIES - LEVATOR SCAPULAE MUSCLE AND MYOFASCIAL RELEASE
Where do the levator scapulae muscle cause pain?
Levator scapulae muscle trigger points can lead to referred pain on the lateral side of the neck and in the shoulders as you can see on the red marked zones in the picture. You may feel burning between your shoulder blades after sitting at your computer without elbow support.
What causes elevator scapulae muscle pain?
▪️Stress ➡️Relax those shoulders!
▪️Head forward posture ➡️Remember to sit up straight, lower your shoulders and bring your head back!
▪️Holding a phone between your ear and shoulder ➡️Get a headset!
▪️Wrong training habits ➡️❌Shrugs!
▪️Bra straps that are too tight ➡️Have your bra fit by a person trained to get a good fit!
▪️Any position where your head is turned to one side ➡️Do you turn to see your computer screen?
On the picture you can see how I approach the levator scapulae muscle for:
1️⃣a trigger point technique: make sure you hold the pressure as long the patient tells you the pain or the radiation goes down or the pain is not radiating anymore but at least for 1 minute and finish the technique then with a Ponçage. I usually hold the pressure until i feel a myofascial release under my fingers!
2️⃣a fascial release technique for the complete lev. scap.: make sure you perform the technique from proximal to distal or dist. to prox. along the muscle stomach.
3️⃣a release technique between the fascia of levator scapulae and trapezius.
Greetings and Happy Friday my fellow Operating room (OR) Registered Nurses that are always focused, disciplined and team players.
Necrotizing fasciitis (NF), commonly known as flesh-eating disease, is an infection that results in the death of the body's soft tissue. It is a severe disease of sudden onset that spreads rapidly. I know it’s like a scene from a horror film, but this is real.
So pay close attention to the symptoms that can include red or purple skin in the affected area, severe pain, fever, and vomiting. Those are some symptoms to name a few, but the most commonly affected areas are the limbs and perineum. Typically the infection enters the body through a break in the skin such as a cut or burn.
Risk factors include poor immune function such as from diabetes or cancer, obesity, alcoholism, intravenous drug use, and peripheral vascular disease. It is not typically spread between people.

I stayed up way way way later than I should have last night finishing an assignment😴.
I'm trying to listen to my body and let it rest some by not working out but a girl can only read so many articles and take so many notes! If anything I will walk on a treadmill before I close the gym. Is it bedtime yet?
