Elbow Pain and Weight Lifting

Whether you are a competitive athlete or just want to stay in shape, arm resistance training should be a key component to your workout .

Muscle growth isn’t achieved overnight. Muscle growth requires a repeating process of micro trauma and then a healing phase to gain strength and mass (if that is your goal). Minor micro trauma is a part of the training process, however during this time you may be at risk for greater injury.

Weightlifting, specifically for the arms, can stress tendons and joints connecting the upper arm and forearm. When that happens, you may experience elbow pain.

Whiplash, When to Claim – Assessment For Insurance

Those who are familiar with motor vehicle injuries have probably heard of whiplash. It usually occurs as a result of sudden braking at high speeds which, in turn, causes the neck to abruptly flex back and forth.

While this is very much understandable, there are also cases of insurance claims from bogus whiplash injuries.

Hand Arthritis: Early Signs, Pain Relief, And How To Manage

Our hands are the most flexible parts of our body because of the number of joints. They are also primarily made of cartilage. Both qualities allow our hands to bend, twist and turn in almost any direction. However, this also makes our hands vulnerable to osteoarthritis.

Osteoarthritis is a condition that affects the joints. The cartilage that connects the bones has worn out which causes bones to directly rub each other when the hand moves. Osteoarthritis usually occurs in three parts: the base of the thumb, which connects the latter to the wrist joint, the joint of the hand that is closest to the fingertip, and the joint at the middle of the finger.
