  • Lower Back Pain Caused From Inactivity and Muscle Weakness " Bill is a 37-year-old ad executive who travels a lot on planes "

    Bill is a 37-year-old ad executive who travels a lot on planes. He has little time to exercise except on weekends and sometimes when the hotel has a gym. Bill has been complaining about a sore lower back and tail bone for about 6 weeks. Bill was referred by his family doctor to a Kinesiologist or a personal trainer to strengthen his lower back muscles, gluteal muscles and loosen his quadriceps. The doctor also noticed that his hamstrings appeared very tight and were likely very weak due to all of the sitting.

    Bill did see a kinesiologist who helped him work on strengthening his hamstrings and low back muscles. He also recommended that Bill see a physiotherapist or a chiropractor to check joint mobility and a massage therapist to help loosen his psoas and hip flexors. Yoga was also recommended in order to help Bill get into a regular stretching routine. If the pain did not diminish after approximately 3 months it was recommended he get an MRI on his spine to ensure there were no other abnormalities.

  • Weight Loss Tips " Mary a 42 year old lawyer referred by her family physician for an exercise program"

    Mary is a 42 year old lawyer. She was referred by her family physician to an exercise program after she expressed a need to get her growing weight issues under control. Mary is 5 foot 2 inches and 150 lbs which indicates a BMI of 27.4, and is considered very overweight. A female of this height should aim to be between 110 - 120 lbs to have a BMI within 'normal' limits.

    Mary has had an ongoing battle with weight and now that she is sitting 10-12 hours a day it is becoming even greater. She is worried about heart issues due to her weight gain and general lack of fitness. She complains of how little time she has to exercise and also finds it hard to eat well, eating out or grabbing quick meals that often involve fast food.

    The personal trainer recommends to Mary that she start an exercise program immediately so that it can't be put off any longer. Mary is also referred to a nutritionist for education on food choices and to give her some ideas on healthy alternatives. It is also recommended that Mary get a bike for weekends and can get it adjusted properly by a qualified bike fitter if necessary.

    Mary can also be referred to a cardiologist to have any heart issues or concerns checked out. She can also consider doing yoga or pilates on weekends to reduce stress levels, improve her strength and help with her with weight loss.

  • Managing Lower Back Pain With Lifestyle Changes " John a 53-year-old business man "

    John is a 53-year-old business man complaining about a sore lower back. John is approximately 40 pounds overweight and sits for 8-10 hours a day. He exercises infrequently even though he knows he should do more. John smokes 10-20 cigarettes a day and eats irregularly, however, when he does eat he tends to overeat. John claims to sleep about 5-6 hours a night which he feels is not enough and complains of feeling tired a lot.

    Upon examination by his physician, it is apparent his hip flexors are extremely tight, his rotation in his trunk is almost non-existent and his hamstrings are extremely weak due to sitting too much. John is referred by his family physician to a fitness program, with either a physiotherapist or a chiropractor for his lower back issues which includes a stretching program. John could benefit from going to yoga not only to improve his flexibility and back issues, but to improve his sleeping patterns. His family physician also feels John could benefit from seeing a nutritionist to learn more about healthy eating. Lastly, John has agreed to see a specialist about his smoking in hopes that he can soon quit.

    Health Benefits of Eating Oatmeal Every Day Do you remember eating a steaming hot bowl of oatmeal most mornings before heading off to school? While many of us do, not enough of us continue to eat this ultra-healthy food as adults. It’s time to revisit this childhood staple and see it as the fantastic food it really is! Oats are a gluten-free whole grain and provide essential vitamins, fibre, minerals and antioxidants. Why eat oatmeal regularly? Well, it can: 1. Protect your heart. Oatmeal is rich in lignans, a plant chemical that can be protective against cardiovascular diseases. You can also find lignans in foods like broccoli, pumpkin seeds and berries. 2. Support your digestion. Oatmeal makes you feel fuller, so your body has ample time to digest. It also helps reduce the temptation to overeat or snack between meals. 3. Aid in weight loss. Oatmeal has a compound called beta-glucan, which increases cholecystokinin – a hormone that can reduce your appetite. 4. Support type 2 diabetes management. Because oatmeal has a low glycemic index, sugar is released more slowly into your bloodstream. This results in better glycemic controls, insulin levels and lipid profiles in people with type 2 diabetes. 5. Provide energy. As a protein-rich carbohydrate, oatmeal is an ideal source of calories to keep you fuelled. It’s a low glycemic food, which makes your body more effective at burning fat. 6. Lower blood pressure. Oatmeal is a triple threat against high blood pressure: it contains calcium and potassium and is a soluble fibre. Increasing your intake of oatmeal may be associated with a decreased risk of heart disease. 7. Prevent constipation. Oatmeal is very high in fibre, which helps keep you regular. Studies have shown that eating oats can prevent or relieve constipation. You don’t have to eat plain, hot oatmeal every day at breakfast for amazing health benefits. Use your imagination and get creative with your oatmeal recipes by adding: • Kale • Avocado • Eggs • Berries • Toasted coconut • Nuts and seeds • Seaweed • Fruit • Corn • Greek yogurt • Spices There are too many health benefits of oatmeal to cover in one article! To learn more, talk to your local nutritionist, dietitian or physician.

    7 Common Anxiety Symptoms People Experience Many people wonder what anxiety feels like. While it’s different for everyone, there are some common anxiety symptoms that people experience. 1. A Sense of Panic Some people even visit the emergency room during a panic attack because they’re convinced that they’re having a heart attack or are dying. Panic attack symptoms include dizziness, shortness of breath, tightness in your chest, a feeling of choking, nausea and a fear you’re going crazy. 2. Sleep Problems If you have generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), it can keep you up at night. You may stay awake overthinking and overanalyzing situations or get into a cycle where fatigue makes you more anxious as you get more and more overtired. 3. Muscle Pain When you feel stressed for an extended period of time, your body may start to tense up. During a panic attack, adrenaline often pumps through your body, constricting your blood vessels. If your muscles don’t receive proper blood flow, it can lead to aches and pains. 4. Restlessness People with anxiety are constantly responding to the fight or flight system, even though there is no real danger. With so much adrenaline coursing through your body, restlessness is generally the result. Restlessness can also be caused by a feeling of dread or danger, common during panic attacks. 5. Excessive Worrying Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life, whether you worry about family, your job or money. But if you have generalized anxiety disorder, you get into a cycle of constant worrying and negative thinking that interferes with your daily tasks. 6. Loss of Control One of the most common anxiety symptoms is a sense of losing control. You may feel that if you can’t control everything in your life that something bad will happen. Worrying can exacerbate your sense of losing control, such as worrying about what will happen if you lose your job or if a family member dies. 7. Difficulty Focusing If you have generalized anxiety disorder, the worrying and rapid thoughts can distract you from daily life. Sleep problems, restlessness and muscle pain can exhaust you physically, also making it hard to keep your mind on your job, family or hobbies.
