Psychological factors such as anxiety, fatigue (e.g., eyestrain), and stress (e.g., long periods of concentration) as well as mechanical factors such as neck strain (e.g., working on a computer for prolonged periods) are often the culprits behind a typical tension headache. Migraines are generally more severe and can be debilitating. The cause of migraine is not known but many trigger factors are recognized. These include hormonal changes (during a woman's menstrual cycle), certain foods (e.g., chocolate, aged cheeses), beverages (e.g., red wine), strong odours, lack of sleep, and even stress. It is not uncommon to experience mixed tension-migraine headaches.
Overuse can also result from powerful activities involving either forward moving or sitting and continuous activity of the lower limbs like running or bicycling especially with lack of stretching and strengthening exercises. In these cases, impingement of the sciatic nerve is a high possibility especially in conditions where the Piriformis size is increased by 40%. Some studies have shown some involvement of the Pedundal nerve as well presented with symptoms of incontinence in addition to groin tingling and numbness(13). Furthermore in advanced case, unilateral weakness of several hip muscles supplied by nerves arising from the sacral plexus (e.g. Gluteus Maximus, Medius & Minimus, Tensor Fascia Lata and Quadrates Femoris) was associated with chronic stages of Piriformis syndrome.
5. Managing Back Pain This is a common complaint as folk get into their 40s and 50s. It comes from bad posture or an incorrect position at your workstation, placing strain on the spine. Combating it or making sure you are not susceptible to it in the first place really depend on watching your posture – a little pilates may be helpful – and also watching how you lift heavy things. Remember to always lift heavier items from the knees, and make sure you don’t carry more than 25% of your body
Certain types of exercise . The activities that much stress your heel and adjacent tissues, such as endurance running, dancing or aerobics, can help premature onset of plantar fasciitis. Also start doing much physical activity suddenly, without due training, it can cause plantar fasciitis. Wrong foot mechanics . The flat foot, the foot too arched or certain posture problems may adversely affect the weight distribution when you are standing and stress than normal plantar fascia.
While doing any movement the calf muscles flex and pull on the heel. With the lack of blood supply, the tendon is more susceptible to injury. Achilles tendinitis most commonly occurs in runners who have suddenly increased the intensity or duration of their runs. Achilles tendinitis occurs when a tendon is unable to adapt to the strain being placed upon it. This leads to “repeated small amounts of damage within the tendon fibres, and result in the tendon trying to heal itself in response to the strain” (Reid 2015).
When the person straightens with the heavy object, the additional weight of the object locks the sacrum vertically downward in the position the dysfunction.6 The severity of the dysfunction depends upon the rapidity of the weight transfer and the amount of weight added during forward bending or lifting.14 The second mechanism states that, when a person with anterior dysfunction steps down hard from a step or falls on his buttocks, the sudden deceleration combined with inertial movement forces the sacrum vertically downward on the
It is commonly caused by sudden stretching, repeated and overused a tendon with strain of a particular movement over time which injures the connection between the tendon and its bone or muscle. In the majority of cases, tendinitis develops in people whose jobs or hobbies involve repetitive movements; aggravating the tendons. There are several tendons in the shoulder that can be overused or stretched, and usually a shoulder will have more than one injury at a time which can also contribute to elbow and arm problems when its moved. Some people may find it painful to lie on the affected shoulder at night. Achilles tendinitis may also be caused by ill-fitting shoes, or those that do not properly support the foot.
Musculoskeletal pain continue to be substantial setback for public health thus, studies on musculoskeletal symptoms due to schoolbag use have been a subject of interest by many researchers. Musculoskeletal discomfort (MSD) can be described as tension, fatigue, soreness, heat or tremor (Van der Grinten and Smitt, 1992), feeling of effort, pressure in muscles, cramps, stiffness, ache, tingling/numbness, etc in muscles or non-muscular tissue (Reenen et al, 2008). Long term MSD or pain may lead to potential chronic pain, injury and stress. These negativities are associated with student’s absenteeism from lessons, low productivity and affects students’ well being and future careers (Alshagga, 2013; Buckle, 2005). In the recent years, there has been an increase in incidence of musculoskeletal complaints due backpack use among college students (AOTA, 2008).
But there are people who don’t have this manipulation ability and they will be locked in the same place which generates frustration, depression and anxiety of life with low quality of life. So smart wheelchairs are the solution for people with varying levels of disabilities and it is been the trendy research area since 80’s. There are different input methods to command the wheelchair and to
And the phenomenon of procrastination has become universal nowadays. In the investigation conducted online among the crowds (145 participants in total), about 94 percent of the participants said that they have procrastination, and it has become the norm in their daily life such as postponement in study and work. About 98 percent of the participants thought that procrastination have adverse effects on their daily work and lives. It is believed that procrastination will not only obstruct us achieving our goal but also bring us psychological stress and anxiety. For most of the people, procrastination is a mysterious force that stops them from achieving the most urgent and vital tasks in their lives.
