Frozen Shoulder Exercise Program For a Fast and Effective Recovery

A frozen shoulder exercise program during the thawing phase of the disorder can help cut down significantly recovery times for a disabling condition that can last up to 2 years or more. Adhesive Capsulitis, the medical term for a Frozen Shoulder, owes its name to the adhesions, scarred and thickened tissues of the membrane capsule surrounding the rotator cuff. While is not totally clear why the disorder develops, it is established how this can be cured.

A Frozen Shoulder affects people over 40, more women than men, and it has been linked to being over weight or having diabetes, though not necessarily so. Whatever the reason, a Frozen Shoulder is one of the most disabling and long lasting shoulder disorders, as it severely restricts the shoulder affected range of movement, making every day activities that are normally taken for granted an impossible task.

Reversing the car, steering the wheel, reaching for the cupboard or shampooing become impossible or severely restricted, and sharp pain is the norm whenever the person affected “forgets” to have an arm lock. The block is caused by the adhesions restricting the space within the shoulder joint, making it impossible to perform full over head movements.

There is a variety of treatments available for this condition, including anti inflammatories, cortisone injections, ultrasounds, hot packs, manipulation and a specific frozen shoulder exercise program to speed up recovery times. A Frozen Shoulder develops in 3 phases called freezing phase, frozen phase and thawing phase.

The freezing phase is the shortest, lasting only few weeks, but also the most painful. In this stage full range of movement is still possible, however the shoulder affected presents symptoms common to other shoulder disorders, mainly a subtle pain growing worse with time into a strong, dull ache, especially at night. The usual remedy is resorting to painkillers and anti inflammatories like ibuprofen or aspirin.

The frozen phase is the worst, as arm range of motion become severely restricted with all the implications that this brings to quality of life. The pain is now less severe, however the stage is set for a long, unpleasant run that can last up to 1 year. During this phase prescription anti inflammtories may be administered, as well as ultrasounds and hot pack. The last 2 remedies are free of side effects, but require multiple applications and are only partially and temporarily effective.

Anti inflammtories become the main component of the treatments available, and only manipulation under general anesthesia could break the adhesions radically and fast, followed by a rehabilitation program. A stretching and range of motion program offers the opportunity to recover much faster from the disorder, as the adhesions naturally break down with time. A specific frozen shoulder exercise program speeds up the process, significantly cuting down recovery times. It is a fact that even a thawing phase can last up to 1 year if left resolving naturally, during which time more anti inflammatories, painkillers, ultrasounds and hot packs will again be administered. Fortunately, a frozen shoulder exercise program can eliminate medications and pain, strengthening the rotator cuff and naturally loosening up the adhesions.

If you are in the unfortunate situation of being affected by this very restricting and long lasting disorder, do not hesitate to check out this professionally devised frozen shoulder exercise program. It could help you slash a thawing phase recovery times to a fraction. There is no need to put up with disability and discomfort for longer than it is necessary.

Bright Road Recovery Announces It Will Treat Orthorexia, Or Healthy Eating Gone Wrong


(PRWEB) March 11, 2015

Articles about clean eating, juice cleanses, veganism, the Paleo diet, low-carb eating and countless others are everywhere these days, making it difficult to know just what exactly to eat. Everyone has a friend who swears by one eating style or another, and people who are able to stick with a diet get endless praise about their willpower and lifestyle.

But dieting can hide a new kind of eating disorder. Studies show that some people, in an attempt to become healthy, develop an obsession around healthy eating that, like anorexia, can impact health and wellness. Called orthorexia, it is the slow elimination of foods from the diet which affects the ability to eat normally.

A person with orthorexia is focused on defining and strictly maintaining a perfect diet. Orthorexia may manifest as an aversion to foods with artificial ingredients, non-organic foods or GMO foods. It can extend to foods containing sugar, fat, salt, dairy or other ingredients the person might consider unhealthy.

“Orthorexia is an insidious condition,” said Claire St John, a Registered Dietitian at Bright Road Recovery in Claremont, CA. “Healthy eaters get all kinds of positive feedback from friends and family about how great their diet is and how admirable their willpower is. This can lead to further food elimination until there are very few ‘okay’ foods, resulting in food fixation, inability to eat with others and, at worst, nutrient deficiencies and dangerously low body weight.”

Bright Road Recovery, an outpatient eating disorder treatment center in Claremont Village, is well placed to address orthorexia with its new Health & Wellness program, offering nutrition and fitness counseling that rejects the diet hype and helps clients meet their goals without sacrificing their health or enjoyment of food.

“Our Health & Wellness program is tailored to each client,” said Tamson Overholtzer, Bright Road Recovery’s Executive Director. “We start with professional nutritional counseling, and then depending on a client’s needs, we may suggest other resources to support any areas of concern. It’s a healthy way for clients to achieve their goals without slipping into a problem they didn’t see coming.”

Bright Road Recovery is the first outpatient eating disorder program in our area to make general nutritional counseling available outside of the eating disorder treatment program.

“Our expanded services meet the needs of clients who are stepping down from higher levels of care or who are looking for nutritional guidance unrelated to eating disorders, but with an eye toward protecting against developing disordered eating habits”, Overholtzer said.

eMazzanti Offers Microsoft Customers Cloud Disaster Recovery at Affordable Price Point

(PRWEB) March 12, 2015

Hoboken, New Jersey ­- (Vocus) March 19, 2015 — eMazzanti Technologies, a NYC area IT consultant and MSP, announced today that it has teamed up with Microsoft to offer customers the tech giant’s cloud disaster recovery solution, Azure Site Recovery as part of eMazzanti’s Business Continuity suite. The solution provides a cost effective disaster recovery option for any business with Microsoft licensing and the ability to use Hyper-V Replica, System Center, or SQL Server AlwaysOn.

“No one wants to pay for a disaster recovery scenario until a disaster takes place,” stated Carl Mazzanti, CEO, eMazzanti Technologies. “eMazzanti’s Business Continuity Suite with Azure Site Recovery allows us to effectively offer a service to customers where for a small investment when they really need the computing power the infrastructure is ready.”

Many customers running Windows Server 2012 already have Hyper-V licensing but are not using it. According to Mazzanti, this solution allows those businesses to implement a disaster recovery solution that is completely within eMazzanti Technologies management of the Microsoft product stack, using more of what they already have. Customers now have one vendor and one phone call to make for disaster recovery services, eMazzanti Technologies.

“People who have Hyper-V and are not taking any of their data off-site should immediately enlist a partner like eMazzanti that can help them with disaster recovery at a relatively low price point to get more out of their IT investment,” stated Mazzanti.

In the wake of 2012’s Hurricane Sandy, many businesses that were in the path of the storm recognized the need for a disaster recovery solution but may have contracted for services not well matched to their needs or their budgets.

“eMazzanti’s Business Continuity services built upon Azure Site Recovery is a great fit for a lot of NYC area businesses that experienced Sandy and implemented disaster recovery but no longer want to continue to pay for an environment that they don’t believe they are ever going to use,” explained Mazzanti.

Mr. Mazzanti also explained that many organizations have a variety of disaster recovery points but they do not know which ones will work. For companies that have implemented eMazzanti’s Business Continuity, the confidence level in the tools and the recovery path that they now have is very high and their comfort level is light years ahead of where they were before.

According to Microsoft, the Azure Site Recovery solution offers users a number of features designed to “orchestrate the protection and recovery of applications for simplified disaster recovery.” eMazzanti’s expert management and suite of tools fill in the gaps for those who use just Microsoft’s offering for a complete packaged solution to keep a business up and running.

eMazzanti Technologies Business Continuity Features


    Automated protection and replication of virtual machines
    Remote health monitoring
    Customizable recovery plans
    No-impact recovery plan testing
    Orchestrated recovery when needed
    Replicate to – and recover in – Azure

This cloud-based disaster recovery solution helps to protect important applications by coordinating the replication and recovery of physical or virtual machines. Users can replicate to their own datacenter, to a hosting service provider, or even to Azure to avoid the expense and complexity of building and managing their own secondary location.

Orchestrated Recovery

eMazzanti’s Cloud Recovery orchestrates replication, failover and recovery of virtual machines in the event of a site outage at the primary datacenter. It manages the ongoing replication of data by integrating with existing technologies such as Hyper-V Replica, System Center, and SQL Server AlwaysOn. When primary systems fail, virtual machines can be brought up in an orchestrated fashion to help restore service quickly.

eMazzanti Can Help

eMazzanti Technologies is well-prepared to bring businesses the latest disaster recovery technologies, planning and services. For organizations with existing disaster recovery solutions, eMazzanti can confirm that the environment is current, active and that recovery points are online, available and actually working.

Suncoast Rehab Center Offers Individuals in Recovery Seven Tips for a New Year Free of Substance Abuse


Spring Hill, FL (PRWEB) December 29, 2014

The emotional highs and lows accompanying the holidays and the New Year to follow can trigger substance abuse, especially for people battling or recovering from drug and alcohol addiction. Planning for common holiday scenarios goes a long way toward becoming and staying sober, according to the nonprofit Suncoast Rehabilitation Center.

“Recovering from substance abuse is difficult regardless of the time of year, but the holiday season poses additional and significant challenges because of its emotional and social demands,” said Tammy Strickling, Executive Director, Suncoast Rehabilitation Center. “That’s why it’s so important to be proactive with a plan to stay on the road to recovery.”

Strickling offered the following tips to help anticipate some of the holiday challenges and avoid others:

1. Identify triggers. People experience stress for different reasons. During the holidays, which can be a time of emotional, family or social stress, it’s important to identify triggers and people or situations that drive a person’s tendency to drink or use illicit substances. Identifying triggers allows an individual in recovery to make plans to avoid them and create support systems in advance to successfully stay on track.

2. Have a nonalcoholic drink in your hand at all times. Sober gatherings can’t always be chosen, but indulgences can be. Keep a drink filled with something nonalcoholic. Sweets also can be a fun way to keep the hands, mouth and mind occupied.

3. Have an exit strategy. There’s no rule that mandates staying at any gathering where alcohol or drugs are present. Have a friend or family member to leave with if things get uncomfortable. Have a plan to leave early as necessary—and don’t be afraid to use it.

4. Celebrate with the right people. Choose people who will celebrate the holidays and personal goals for the New Year. Choosing to be around people who offer support and encouragement goes a long way in staying sober.

5. Be healthy and get active. Overcoming an addiction, alone, has resulted in a healthier life. Most likely the physical deficiencies and malnutrition created through drug and alcohol use have greatly improved. Stay healthy by continuing to eat nutritious foods and taking vitamins and supplements to keep your body functioning at its most optimum level. Additionally, being active and exercising regularly is one of the best things to do. Studies show running promotes success in addiction recovery.

6. Feeling down? Talk to a friend or volunteer. Rather than revert to old habits, connect with others in recovery, seek the help of a sponsor and consider volunteering at a shelter, church group or even around the neighborhood. Helping others is a great way to turn a focus outward.

7. Safeguard and treasure your sobriety. Recovery is a day-by-day process and one that should be celebrated continuously. Don’t take it for granted. Safeguard and treasure sobriety by not letting one day affect the positive lifestyle changes that have been made.

When the Choice is Treatment

An addiction to pills, heroin, alcohol or other substances requires treatment from a qualified rehabilitation program that will address and handle all aspects of the person’s addiction.

“Receiving treatment for an addiction increases an individual’s odds of success tenfold in comparison to attempting to overcome it alone,” said Strickling. “Suncoast’s programs are designed to get people off of drugs in a healthy, natural way and help them return to the person they were before their addiction took hold.”
