  • Ways to Reduce Arthritis Pain in Seniors

    Arthritis is a very common problem that many seniors experience. Patients with arthritis experience inflammation in the joints, which leads to pain in these areas as well as a lack of mobility. There are many ways to reduce arthritis pain in seniors, particularly for those living in assisted living homes who have access to extra care. Here are some ways that seniors can reduce arthritis pain and live more comfortably.

    Alternate Between Heat and Cold Therapy.

    Both hot and cold can make a huge difference when it comes to pain and stiffness in arthritis patients. Heat helps improve mobility, so it’s particularly good in the morning when first waking up, which is a time when seniors commonly experience stiffness. A warm shower or an electric blanket can get the joints started for the day. Cold therapy works better to reduce inflammation, which leads to pain. Using ice packs on areas that are inflamed will reduce swelling in the joints quickly.

    Be Aware of Your Diet.

    There are certain nutrients that actually reduce inflammation, and taking the time to incorporate these into your diet on a regular basis can make a huge difference in the amount of pain you’re experiencing. In particular, omega-3 fatty acids are very helpful for arthritis, because they lubricate the joints, reducing pain and stiffness. These are found in fish and other seafood. If you don’t get enough seafood in your diet, you can also take an omega-3 supplement. In addition to nutrients, there are also spices and ingredients that are thought to have medicinal properties that can help with inflammation. One of these is turmeric. Turmeric has been used historically to treat swelling and inflammation, and it’s easy to add a bit of it to your dinners.

    Add Gentle Exercise to Your Routine.

    Exercise is one of the best ways to mitigate the pain of arthritis. Although moving may sound like a counterintuitive solution when you’re feeling stiff, there’s actually plenty of benefits for arthritis patients. It helps your joints stay mobile and flexible, which prevents them from locking up and causing more pain. Exercise can also help you lose weight, which will result in less stress placed on your joints overall. Not all exercises are suitable for arthritis patients - ideally, the exercise should be low weight-bearing, such as swimming or using a recumbent bicycle. Be sure to check with your doctor before starting any new exercise program.

    Try Different Forms of Therapy, Such as Massage, Acupuncture, or Chiropractic Treatment.

    In addition to seeing your primary care doctor, you may find you benefit from seeing another professional who specializes in physical therapy and other forms of treatment. Many patients find they benefit from massage, which helps improve flexibility and range of motion in the joints and reduces feelings of tightness and pain. Acupuncture is another common therapy that is often used for arthritis. It is a very old form of therapy that focuses on finding pressure points in the body and releasing energy. Finally, you may want to consider gentle chiropractic treatment for arthritis. Chiropractors can help you put your joints into alignment to reduce tension buildup. Just be sure that your chiropractor knows you have arthritis so they can treat you appropriately. An at-home treatment option for arthritic stiffness/discomfort in the neck or back is Posture Pump® Disc Hydrators®.* Posture Pump® restores nutrient-rich fluid to the discs of the neck & back, promoting better range of motion, and well-lubricated joints. If you aren’t sure what type of therapy would be most effective for you, consider working generally with a physical therapist to determine what types of treatments would be most helpful.

     

    Avoid Repetitive Motions That Could Create Tension/Exacerbate Arthritis Pain.

    Repetitive motion built up through work or other physical activities is a big cause of arthritis for many people. This repetitive motion builds up tension in the joints, which eventually results in the development of arthritic pain. If you already have arthritis, it’s very important to avoid repetitive motions, such as typing, for long periods of time. If you don’t have the option of avoiding these repetitive motions, take frequent breaks to stretch your joints and muscles.

    Arthritis is a very frustrating physical condition, but it can be managed with these pain relief methods. It’s very important to talk to your doctor about this to make sure you’re taking appropriate measures to treat your condition, as well as for other general senior living help. Everyone’s arthritis is unique, so treatments that work for someone else may be different from the treatments that work for you. There are also medications that you can use along with these pain relief techniques to manage the condition.

  • Sailing & Back Pain: What You Need to Know

     

    Sailing and racing is enjoyed by countless individuals the world over. It’s a fun, exciting, and adventurous outdoor activity. Many sailors and racers enjoy the sport because it offers a liberating connection to nature and the elements. The constantly changing conditions of the wind and sea, however, can add to the risk of neck and back pain. This is a commonly reported issue, which should come as no surprise, given the immense physical demands involved in sailing.

    Often, the surrounding environment of the sea can be unpredictable. This usually requires vigorous, quick movements during sailing and racing. Many sailing aficionados report not only pain in the neck and/or back, but acute shoulder and arm stiffness as well. When put to action while boating, the sometimes awkward movements and positions involved can contribute to hyper-extension, or locking of the joints.

    Whether sailing or racing, one common cause of back pain is due to over-arching the low back due to a weak core. Additionally, stress put on the spine while sailing using positional, repetitive motions can lead to disc bulging/protrusion. This causes the back (and neck) to lose their proper postural curves over time. As bones clamp down on the discs of the spine, nutrient-rich lubricating fluid is forced out of the disc space. This common occurrence causes bones and joints to dry up, decay, and become painfully stiff.

    Tips For Prevention

    The ever-changing conditions of the sea reinforce the importance of being in good physical condition. This will help to avoid musculoskeletal issues that may lead to bigger health problems down the road. One should practice regular cardiovascular, core, and flexibility training. Taking regular breaks while sailing will also help maintain endurance and stamina on the water. As with any physical exercise (weightlifting, yoga, etc.), developing a habit of practicing proper form and stretching/warming up joints before setting sail is crucial. Finally, if there are any areas of technical skill that need improvement, seek out training/coaching to strengthen these skills beforehand.

    A healthy balance of nutrition and hydration is just as important as physical training while sailing. When navigating the sometimes-erratic settings of the wind and ocean, it’s important to maintain a regular intake of good carbohydrates. Equally as critical is the consistent intake of water. Dehydration when sailing leads to decreased energy and weakend muscle strength. It is recommended to consume 500ml of water or sport drink one half-hour before setting sail. Once on the water, it’s a good idea to drink 150ml every 15 minutes, especially during a vigorous boat race.

    Regular use of Posture Pump® Disc Hydrators® before and after racing and sailing will help shape and restore the essential curves of the back and neck. Additionally, Posture Pump® decompresses and hydrates compressed, damaged discs, relieving painful back and neck stiffness.

  • Great Ways to Stop a Desk Job from Ruining Your Health

    As more and more businesses are incorporating internet-based knowledge into their company workflow, computers and other digital technologies are becoming more frequently required to complete daily tasks in the workplace. Performing work at a computer usually involves sitting at an office desk, and even though some individuals might enjoy the lack of activity that this kind of job may bring, it is truly detrimental to our health. The health risks that come with sitting down for, what it seems like, infinite hours per day are endless. Heart disease, a slower metabolism, cardiovascular disease, and neck and back pain are all cases, among the many not mentioned, that can arise from sitting too long.

     Ways to Take Control of Neck and Back Pain

    Neck and back pain are some of the most common outcomes and complaints from sitting at a desk for too long. It can be induced from from bad posture, the framework of your chair, or the position of your head in comparison to what you’re working on at your desk. Whatever the cause may be, it is important to prevent the discomfort to stop these somewhat minor issues from turning into impactful ones that can take you out of work completely.

     Neck pain most likely comes from the symptoms of bad posture--rounded shoulders, a forward head position, and a curved spine from slouching. There are a variety of exercises that can be done to help alleviate the pain you’re experiencing. Try using the “puppet string” posture method before completing any sitting exercise. With this, it is important to sit up tall so you feel as though your spine is being pulled upwards. A great workout for a tight neck is called cervical retraction. Slightly tuck your neck toward your chin, as if your making a “double chin”, and hold this position for a few seconds, and repeat 5 times.

     Along with the neck, desk workers can often experience back pain too. To help decrease spinal pain throughout the workday, relieve some of the tension between your shoulder blades by positioning your arms around your back-- like you’re giving yourself a big hug. You will feel the tension disappear as you breathe in and out while holding your arms the way described.

    A great product line that can help with spinal compression is Posture Pump® Disc Hydrators®! This comfortable line of at-home neck/back pain devices decompress and hydrate the discs in the neck and back.

    Consider Using a Sit-Stand Desk

    Sit-stand desks are the new fad in many corporations around the world! For companies that have adopted this concept, there has been quite an improvement in employee wellness. Think about it, sitting all day comes with very limited movement, which is extremely detrimental to our overall health. With a standing desk, you’re giving your body the opportunity to completely change its position while still working. If standing desks are not provided in your workplace, click here to purchase one and experience the difference it can make to your body!

     

    Walk Around the Office

    Being static at your desk all day is a contributor to bad health. It is vital that we leave our desks periodically throughout the day to get out bodies moving. Along with the fitness related advantages, taking walks around the office can give your mind a break. After a brief pause away from work, you’re more likely to come back more motivated and awake than before.

    Group Fitness Attendance

    Feel like challenging your coworkers in a really fun and active way? Motivate yourself and your colleagues to join a fitness event in the community! Whether it is a zumba class, or a local race, it gets everyone out of the office and involved with exercise. If you are struggling to find a fitness related event in your area, create one! Using an online event planning platform makes it super easy to invite your friends and track your RSVPs. You’ll turn into the most active workplace in no time!

  • Health Care Professional Dr. Muffoletto Recommends Posture Pump®!

    Dr. Muffoletto has used and recommended Posture Pump® for over 20 years. He credits Posture Pump® as his “best treatment tool,” noting that Posture Pump® is a great way for patients to get treatment/relief from their symptoms at home.

    Dr. Michael Muffoletto has been practicing Chiropractic care for over 28 years, specializing in conditions of the musculoskeletal system. Over the course of his career, Dr. M has treated countless individuals seeking relief from tension headaches, chronic migraines, stress, and low back pain. He has seen first hand the damaging effects of frequent smartphone and computer use on the neck and back through his own patients. Dr. M notes that the prevalence of smart device use & social media has forced individuals into a compressive forward head posture, which inhibits the neck’s natural and essential curve. If left untreated, this can cause the spine to degenerate, decay, and even become arthritic, prematurely aging individuals so that they appear older than they really are.

    “As we all age, we all would love to have an active lifestyle. and the Posture Pump® unit allows that to happen!.” - Dr. Michael Muffoletto

  • Posture Pump® Dual Disc Hydrator®: Model 1400-D Instructions

    Posture Pump® Dual Disc Hydrator® (Model 1400-D) Relieves Painful Neck AND Upper Back Stiffness, Headaches, & Fatigue.

    Step-By-Step Instructions: Easy to use at home device- just minutes a day for neck AND upper back pain relief, increased flexibility, & range of motion!

    Before you begin, here are some safety precautions:

    • You shouldn't use Posture Pump® without consulting with your Healthcare Professional, as certain joint, nerve, disc, vascular, and other disorders or weaknesses could potentially be aggravated and worsened.
    • Do not use if you have implanted spinal hardware.
    • If you are pregnant, you should not use Posture Pump® beyond your first trimester.
    • Do not use if you are injured.
    • Never inflate to the point of pain.
    • DO NOT cover up or block off open ends of hand pump (Safety Release Valve.)
    • Refrain from re-positioning your body when neck unit is inflated! When using neck unit and back unit together, always apply the back unit first. When all movement with back unit is complete, apply neck unit. Completely deflate neck unit and release head restraint before moving back unit.
    • If pain results during treatment, discontinue use immediately and consult your doctor.
    • If your back is sensitive or extremely stiff, first use the unit on your bed/mattress. As your flexibility increases, you may wish to graduate to a flat, firm surface.
    • An aggressive workout with the Posture Pump® may temporarily cause soreness. If so, reduce the intensity and duration of your treatment.
    • Keep unit out of reach of children at all times.

    WARM UP ROUTINE: Begin by slowly turning the head side-to-side 5 times; then tilting the head forward and backward 5 times; then leaning the neck from side-to-side 5 times.

    INSTRUCTIONS:
    1. After warm-up routine, place deflated unit on a comfortable, firm surface. Deflate air cell(s) by pushing the button on the pump and squeezing air cell(s). With Comfort Visor™ forehead restraint untangled at back of unit, slide and center unit under the back of your neck, snugly against your shoulders and upper back. Note that if you are not snug, comfortable, and centered on the inflated neck bladder or back bladders, or if it seems to inflate unevenly, completely deflate all air cells, remove Comfort Visor®, then re-center yourself on the unit and reapply Comfort Visor™.
    2. Center your neck on neck cradle measuring with your index fingers. 
    3. Apply Comfort Visor™ by centering it across your forehead. While holding it there with fingers, lightly tighten one side at a time until snug and centered. Allow it to slide back toward hairline as you pull all slack out of Comfort Visor™ ends equally while holding frame down with fingers. Comfort Visor™ will mold to the shape of your forehead as it slides back. Re-position until it feels secure and comfortable. Note: For smaller heads and shorter necks, locate Comfort Visor™ in forward slots. For larger size locate Comfort Visor™ in back slots.  
    4. Hold back of unit down with tips of index fingers or thumbs and further tighten Comfort Visor™ if necessary.
    5. Press ends of Comfort Visor™ straps across the Velcro® forehead section. Comfort Visor™ should be as snug as possible without lifting up the back of the unit and may be tightened further after the first repetition. (Back of frame may lift slightly during application on some surfaces. THIS IS NORMAL.) 
    6. Slowly pump unit up to your own comfort level; never to the point of pain. Model 1400-D Dual Disc Hydrator® usually 2 to 12 complete pumps. Pump fewer times during first week of use. (Pump is equipped with automatic air release valve, limiting inflation.) Never cover up or block off open ends of hand pump.
    7. Wait approximately 10 seconds; then release all air by pushing the manual air release button on the pump. Repeat approximately 10 to 15 times.
    8. Next, inflate unit to a comfortable level (never to the point of pain) and relax on inflated unit for 1 to 5 minutes on first session. Gradually work up to a maximum goal of 15 minutes by adding a few minutes to each session or as directed by your Healthcare Professional. Inflate unit at lower levels the first week, thus reducing soreness commonly caused by aggressive usage. 
    9. Completely deflate unit, release Velcro® straps from forehead and remove Comfort Visor™.  Roll off unit to your right or left side slowly and carefully without turning your head. When you are free from the unit and standing or sitting in an upright position, gently and slowly repeat warm-up routine to acclimate your neck muscles to the weight of your head.
    10. Keep unit near bed or night stand and repeat the above treatment as recommended by your Healthcare Professional. Keep unit out of reach of children at all times.

    BUY NOW!   FREE SHIPPING & 60 Day Risk Free Guarantee

     Air Cell Positional Adjustments

    Upper Air Cell: Air cell should be centered to expand straight up unless otherwise recommended by your Healthcare Professional. To adjust unoccupied air cell: Fully inflate air cell, forcefully CENTER or tilt completely in the desired direction, HOLD and deflate fully. Air cell is now repositioned. Apply as directed.

    Q: My muscles were sore a day or two after my Posture Pump® session. Is this normal?

    A: Just like performing any new exercise, an aggressive workout with Posture Pump® can temporarily make you sore. To reduce this occurrence, inflate the unit at lower levels and keep your sessions under 10-minutes for the first 2 weeks. This will allow your body to gradually adapt to more aggressive sessions.

    If you've purchased your Posture Pump® with the Comfort Pad attached, this easily folds up and is lightweight. Simply wipe down with a damp cloth for cleaning. There are 4 plastic pegs that connect the Comfort Pad to the neck frame, so be sure to KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN AND PETS.

  • Spinal Nerve Compression: What Is It, and How Can It Be Treated?

    herniated disc image from WebMD.com
    Image from WebMD.com

    Spinal nerve compression – otherwise known as spinal cord compression – is a condition that develops when there’s too much pressure being placed on your spinal cord.  As your spinal cord is comprised of a bunch of nerves that help pass information from your brain to your muscles, this means that the spine can be subject to nerve pain and discomfort due to injury, improper posture, or even the aging process.

    The symptoms of spinal nerve compression can be painful, and lead to a decrease in a person’s quality of life.  Some people may immediately experience symptoms, while others may not notice nerve pain or damage for several years.  Generally speaking, the symptoms of spinal nerve compression include the following:

    - Pain
    - Stiffness in the back, neck, or lower back
    - Burning pain, especially in the buttocks and legs
    - Tingling or loss of sensation in the feet
    - Numbness
    - Cramping in the hands and legs

    If you experience symptoms that include a loss of bladder control, severe numbness between the legs, and severe pain that makes it difficult to walk, it’s important to get medical attention right away (it’s recommended that you go to the emergency room).

    With regards to spinal nerve compression, the condition typically develops as a result of degenerative joint disease, or osteoarthritis.  This disease is usually thought to be a result of the aging process, but it actually can be a result of genetics, obesity, lack of exercise, and other risk factors.

    If left too long, spinal cord compression can only be treated via invasive surgery, which has high readmission factors.  That’s why if you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms, it’s recommended that you seek out Posture Pump® therapeutic products first.

    Posture Pump® is a doctor-trusted online retailer that specializes in neck and back pain products which can treat the most common symptoms associated with spinal cord compression and degenerative joint disease.  Posture Pump® products are designed to decompress, shape, and lubricate the spine, which can ease nerve pain.

    Posture Pump® products can help sufferers increase their quality of life, as well as improve nerve pain and discomfort.  What’s more, Posture Pump® products can help relieve pain associated with spinal cord compression, including neck and back pain.

    Check out our line of back pain and neck pain treatments today to see how they can help treat and ease pain associated with spinal cord compression.

  • What is Expanding Ellipsoidal Decompression (EED®) and how does it relieve neck & back pain?

    Neck & back pain is a very common problem among the US population, and has traditionally been treated with the use of drugs. However, there are now therapeutic options like the Posture Pump® Disc Hydrator®, which uses Expanding Ellipsoidal Decompression (EED®) to ease painful stiffness of the neck and back. But what is Expanding Ellipsoidal Decompression, and how does it alleviate neck and back pain?

    Short term neck and back pain very often resolves on its own. However, chronic pain due to conditions such as sciatica, sciata, disc degeneration, compressed discs and herniated discs, usually require intervention. In these cases, Posture Pump® products provide a unique form of decompression therapy known as EED® for relief of neck & back pain.

    What is Expanding Ellipsoidal Decompression (EED®))?

    EED® was invented and patented by Posture Pump®.  Under EED®, high level joint separation is achieved by expansion of elliptical shaped air cells into the curves of the spine (neck & back).  As EED® occurs, bulging disc material is drawn toward the nucleus pulposus and away from the spinal cord and nerves.  This unique action aligns joints in a curved shape while increasing disc height in a ratio corresponding to the disc’s natural wedged shape. Expansion and contraction of these air cells create alternating hydration and milking of the discs.  Longer expansion periods are employed for posture restoration. It is no longer necessary to forcefully pry the head from the body, pull the posterior joints apart and remove the vital curves of the neck and back.  These spinal curves are essential.

    Posture Pump MRI

    Most healthcare professionals are choosing to treat patients with neck & back pain using EED® via Posture Pump®, because it does not forcefully remove the vital natural curves of the spine. This is not the case with conventional linear traction treatment, which tends to remove the essential spinal curves.  In an IRB approved MRI study conducted by Dr. C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D., neurosurgeon, researcher and author, he found that Posture Pump® Cervical Disc Hydrator® improved the cervical curve in 72% of subjects whereas the commonly used form of linear traction device had only an 8% cervical curve improvement.  In fact, linear traction actually compromised the cervical curve in 83% of subjects.  Dr. Shealy also found that Posture Pump® increased the average disc height twice as much than with the linear traction device.  You can view this and other research studies here.
