  • Golfing and Neck Pain: How To Get Relief

     

    Golf and pain go hand in hand, especially in the neck.
    You need good range of motion in your neck for your golf swing. If you've got a kink in your neck that makes movement panful, your golf swing will of course be impacted!

    One of the biggest contributors to neck pain is poor posture during an activity. Instead of pulling the chin down for a neutral posture, some people keep the chin forward and shoulders slouched. That makes the chin stick out and creates tension in the neck and surrounding muscles.

    In the pursuit of neck pain relief, an important aspect which is often overlooked is unrestricted cervical spine rotation. The ability to "retract" your neck, and fully rotate to the left is necessary to achieve a good "top of back swing position" (for the right-handed golfer). Any limitation in flexibility in either plane of motion can cause muscle strain/or nerve pinching. The shearing and rotational stresses occurring at the lower neck at the top of backswing will be minimized with good muscle flexibility. Gentle rotation and side bending neck stretches done twice daily for a duration of twenty seconds each will help eliminate pain and restriction.

    The most common form of neck pain is often caused by overstretching of ligaments due to postural stresses. The golfer who spends countless hours practicing with the head in a forward, protruded position will always be at higher risk to develop cervical (neck) pain. 

    Extending the neck while you swing causes tension; carrying a golf bag on the same side all the time leads to uneven muscles and pain.

    Quick fix: Bring your chin toward your neck as you look down at the ball so your neck is not extended; alternate shoulder sides when you carry a golf bag.

    Neck Stretch Tips:  Face forward and let your head bend

    slowly to the side.

    • Hold three seconds and repeat on the other side.
    • Repeat 10 times.
    • Do this exercise slowly and gently.
    • For an additional stretch, when your head is bent to the side, let it roll slowly forward about 45 degrees and hold it there for three seconds.

    Remember that using the proper form during physical activity prevents neck pain. So does strengthening the neck, shoulder, back and core muscles.

  • Posture Pump® Deluxe Full Spine - Model 4100-S Instructions

    Posture Pump® Deluxe Full Spine Relieves Painful Neck and Back Pain, Stiffness, Headaches and Fatigue - Model 4100-S

    Step-By-Step Instructions: Easy to use at home device- just minutes a day for neck and 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.
    • Never cover up or block off open ends of hand pump (Safety Release Valve.)
    • While the neck unit is inflated, you should NOT reposition your body. When using the Model 4100-S, always apply the back unit first. When all movement with the back unit is complete, apply neck unit. Completely deflate neck unit and release Comfort Visor™ before moving back unit.
    • If pain results during treatment, discontinue use immediately and consult your Healthcare Professional.
    • 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 firm, flat surface.
    • An aggressive workout with Posture Pump® may temporarily cause soreness. If so, reduce the intensity and duration of your treatment.
    • Keep device out of reach of children at all times.

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

    • On a comfortable, firm surface, in a seated position, slide deflated unit against low back and buttocks.

    • While grasping the lower portion of the unit, gently lean your back and neck over deflated unit. Buttocks should hang off edge of lower unit; neck should fit comfortably into neck cradle. Move lower unit Elliptical Back Rocker™ slightly up or down, left or right, to locate the most comfortable and centered position for you.

    • While lying flat on unit with knees bent and feet firmly on the ground, begin to rock lower portion of Elliptical Back Rocker™ by rocking pelvis up and back toward belly button using abdominal muscles to lift buttocks. Then rock downward using back muscles, allowing your lower back and abdominal muscles to gently stretch over air cells and lowering buttocks to floor. Repeat this movement several times to conclude warm-up routine.

    Now that your warm-up is complete, it's time to move on to the actual Training Session!

    TRAINING SESSION INSTRUCTIONS:
    1. After warm-up routine, place deflated unit on a comfortable, firm surface. Deflate air cells by pushing the button on the pump and squeezing air cells. 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 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™ will mold to the shape of your forehead as it slides back. Reposition 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. Leaving neck pump on chest/stomach area for easy access, grasp the two hand pumps that work the lower unit; lowest air cell pump in your right hand, upper air cell pump in your left hand. (Squeeze each pump separately to confirm lowest air cell pump is in right hand.)
    7. Inflate lowest air cell with right hand pump to a firm, comfortable level, never to the point of pain. (Usually 1-5 complete pumps.)
    8. Inflate upper air cell with left hand pump to an equally comfortable level. (Usually 1-5 complete pumps.)
    9. Squeeze both pumps at the same time (Usually 1-3 more pumps.)
    10. Using your abdominal and pelvic muscles, gently rock back and forth 3-5 times, repeating actions from the final bullet point in the Warm-Up Routine.
    11. Deflate air cells by pushing down on both pump buttons at the same time.
    12. Repeat steps 7 through 11 several times, leaving unit inflated to a comfortable level on the last repetition.
    13. Keeping the back unit inflated to a comfortable level, make sure your neck is still centered on the neck cradle (use your index fingers to measure), and Comfort Visor™ should remain snug.
    14. Grasp the hand pump that operates the neck air cell(s) and slowly pump unit up to your own comfort level; never to the point of pain. (This is typically 1-7 complete pumps, but may vary by individual. Pump less 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.
    15. Wait 10 seconds, then release all air by pushing the manual air release button on the pump. Repeat this workout 10 to 15 times, leaving neck air cell(s) inflates at a comfortable level on last repetition.
    16. With all air cells now inflated to comfortable levels, allow your entire spine to stretch over inflated air cells, keeping your buttocks on the ground. 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 training session, or as directed by your Healthcare Professional. Inflate unit at lower levels the first week, thus reducing soreness commonly caused by aggressive workouts.
    17. Completely deflate all air cells (neck first),  release Velcro® straps from forehead, and remove Comfort Visor™. Gently bring knees to chest one at a time for 5 seconds each. Then bring both knees to chest and hold for 5 seconds. Gently roll off unit and on to your left or right 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 (Begin by slowly turning your head and neck side-to-side 5 times; then tilting your head and neck forward and backward 5 times; then leaning the head and neck side-to-side 5 times) to acclimate your neck muscles to the weight of your head.
    18. Never rock unit while neck unit is inflated. 
    19. Keep unit near bed or night stand and repeat the above treatment daily for at least 3 times per week to help relieve tension, stress and fatigue and to reinforce your natural neck and back curves while lubricating the joints. Many users find that using Posture Pump® just before bedtime allows them to fall asleep more easily.

  • What Affects Your Posture?

    Remember how your mother used to remind you to sit up straight?  It turns out, she wasn’t just reminding you of good manners; she was actually looking out for your posture.

    Poor Posture

    Since humans decided to stand on two feet, our posture has played an important role in the overall health of a person.  Posture provides a sound glimpse of both physical and emotional health issues that a person could be facing.  For example, if someone’s slumped over or has bad posture, you might be quick to assume that person lacks confidence or strength.  If a person stands up or sits up straight, you’re likely to think of that person as confident, capable, and friendly.

    We’re hardwired to look at a person’s posture for a quick assessment of his or her health.  As it turns out, we’re right to do so, as the positioning of each vertebrae in the spine is determined by a person’s skeletal alignment.  This alignment can be impacted by a number of health issues, and even by a person’s mental or emotional well-being.

     

    So what affects your posture – and what can you do to correct poor posture?

      - Your general spinal health can impact your posture. Spinal diseases can play a critical role in the alignment of your spine.  Spinal injuries can also throw off spinal alignment, leading to poor posture.

      - Biomechanical forces can, over long periods of time, impact your spinal health. For example, if you sit slouched over at work all day or you slump while you’re on the computer, it’s likely that your spine is becoming misshapen due to repeated and exaggerated positioning.

      - The strength and flexibility of the muscles surrounding the spine can also play a role on spinal alignment. The stronger those back muscles are, the more easy it is to ensure proper posture.

      - Other ways your posture can be impacted include injury, sleeping patterns, and other health conditions.
