Hillsboro, Oregon (PRWEB) June 03, 2015

Dr. Bruce Farmer, M.D., President and Founder of Fitness Therapeutics Inc and creator of BACK IN ACTION Tri-Zone Movement Therapy, a new treatment for musculoskeletal pain relief announces that Back to Basics Chiropractic P.C. is now using Dr. Famer’s ‘Back in Action’ pain relief program for chronic back pain.

Dr. Farmer developed BACK IN ACTION after a personal recurring injury to his lower back. This approach offers pain relief, rehabilitation, restores functioning, posture, aligns joints, and is entirely movement based without pain medications or surgical intervention. It is currently under study at the Oregon Health & Sciences University Department of Rehabilitation Services. Many post-operative patients with continued pain improve significantly with this program, increasing their daily activities and range of motion.

Founder of Back to Basics Chiropractic, Dr. Brian Rueben, D.C., had a total hip replacement in 2014 and credits the techniques of Dr. Farmer for restoring him to health. “These methods really work, and got me back to functioning at a normal level better than any other methods that I tried. My experience with these techniques led me to pursue certification so I can help other people. We now use the Back in Action program in our clinic. It is the movement piece we’ve been looking for.”

Dr. Rueben has been practicing chiropractic medicine for twenty-three years. The clinic now offers individual and group classes using the Back in Action1 Back Pain program, instructional DVD and color brochure.

Dr. Bruce Farmer assists people suffering from back pain individually, in groups, and offers the BACK IN ACTION Tri-Zone Movement therapy to health practitioners for their patients suffering from chronic pain.

Former LPGA Tour Winner Maggie Will Discovers The Juvent Micro-Impact Platform as a Pain Relief Breakthrough and Performance Enhancer


Riviera Beach, FL (PRWEB) March 31, 2015

Juvent Sports (http://www.juventsports.com) recently presented its latest offerings at the 2015 PGA Merchandise show in Orlando. At the show, former LPGA golf great and current LPGA Legends Tour player Maggie Will was interviewed and she shared the life-changing physical improvements and pain relief she has been experiencing since she began integrating the Juvent Pro Micro-Impact Platform™ into her morning and evening regimens. The Juvent has been so instrumental to her chronic back pain recovery that it has even allowed her to get back into competitive golf after a 7 year hiatus and join the LPGA Legends Tour. Equally impressive is that in only her 2nd event on the tour, Maggie posted a Top 10 finish at Legends Championship in late 2014.

In the interview, Maggie Will explained how she was first introduced to the Juvent Micro-Impact Platform from her past coach and swing trainer, David Leadbetter. After trying it initially for just 4 days she noticed reductions in her back pain, improvements in her mobility and swing flexibility and even changes in her appetite, surprisingly finding herself craving less sugar. Prior to discovering Juvent, Maggie had pretty much given up playing competitive golf as the post-round back pain she experienced would sideline her for 10-12 days after just a single day of golf on the course. “Now it’s like a vitamin that I depend on every day. I use it 20 minutes every morning and it wakes me up and gets me going. I also use it 20 minutes in the evening and it feels like it helps me heal from the day. I am sleeping well, I love it.” said Ms Will.

Peter Simonson, President of Juvent said, “Maggie’s success with the Juvent Micro-Impact platform is very rewarding to hear. Everyone at Juvent is very excited about our product and the ability of our multi-patented micro-impact technology to help reinvigorate the golf games of not only professionals like Maggie Will but more importantly its helping the weekend-golfers across the county continue playing their favorite sport pain-free.”

An FDA Registered Class I medical exercise and rehabilitation device, the Juvent Pro delivers thousands of low-magnitude and high-frequency micro-impact pulses that enter through the heels of the feet and move up the entire body. These micro-impacts uniquely stimulate the body’s muscles and bones promoting circulation, joint health and healing. Users simply stand on the Juvent for as little as 10 minutes per day and many start feeling results within days. Recommended and used by world-renowned trainers, doctors, physical therapists, and chiropractors, the Juvent Pro is changing the way athletes are approaching training and recovery.

Juvent also works with The David Leadbetter Golf Academy and is an Official Proud Partner of the NFL Alumni Association (NFLA). Juvent is a Corporate Advisory Roundtable Member of the National Osteoporosis Foundation

Pain relief and diet

There was a moment, a few years back, when we all stopped noticing overweight people. They used to stand out in the crowd. Now the percentage of the population considered obese is rising to 30%. Put another way, it’s soon going to be the thin folk that stand out in the crowd. The point here is not to repeat the routine warnings about diabetes and heart disease, but to talk to the 50 million people who are affected by long-term pain. This can be due to injury. A slip or fall can damage an arm, hip or leg. Once you change your movements, this forces the muscles in your body to work in a different way. The more weight you are carrying, the more strain you are putting on the muscles to compensate for the injury. It’s the same with diseases like arthritis. Knee joints are under pressure because of the excess weight. If inflammation affects the joints, walking becomes more difficult more quickly.

There’s a terrible temptation to reach for comfort food. You feel down. Eating can help you feel better and, in some cases, distract you from the pain. Unfortunately, if you are eating food that adds to your body weight, you are also adding to the problem. Muscles and joints already under strain can end up causing more pain and suffering. Take rheumatoid arthritis as an example. There’s increasingly clear research evidence showing a link between a high level of blood fats and the onset of the disease. If you have high total levels of cholesterol and lower levels of high density lipoprotein (that’s the supposedly good cholesterol), you are more likely to get an inflammatory disease if unfavorable levels continue for ten years.

So the moral of this story is to change your diet. Ignoring the longer term risks of heart disease, you may already have joint pain. You could simply add painkillers to your existing diet and hope this will keep you moving. But the real answer is eating more a more Mediterranean diet with fresh fish, lean white meats like chicken and pork, plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grain foods, and nuts. Although most nuts are high in calories and so should only be eaten in small amounts, they are also rich in Omega-3 fats which make them very good for relieving inflammation.

There’s no one-size fits all diet. You have to find a menu you are comfortable with and that works to reduce the pressure on muscles and joints. Good nutrition combined with a moderate exercise routine is the best way to relieve pain from stressed muscles and inflamed joints. At first, you may benefit from taking Tramadol. This is an excellent painkiller and will block the messages from the affected parts of your body. But the aim should be to improve mobility by reducing weight and increasing your activity levels. Once you have this program underway, start tapering the Tramadol. It’s essential you should be able to feel your body and judge how easily you are able to move without pain. In this, set realistic goals. You are aiming for an improvement in your quality of life, not major weight loss.

Water Exercise for Arthritis Relief – Fun and Effective

Water Exercise for Arthritis Relief – Fun and Effective

Everybody knows exercise is a significant part of staying healthy. As anyone with arthritis can tell you, though, when your joints say no to play, exercise goes from pleasurable and stimulating activity into a trial of how much pain you can tolerate.

The tendency when suffering from arthritis is to keep your joints as motionless as possible. The problem is that this leads to weakening of the muscles and tendons and a stiffening of joints, which makes the pain worse over time. It is a self-feeding cycle difficult to break out of.

One solution comes in the form of The Arthritis Foundation Aquatics Program, a warm water exercise program designed by the Arthritis Foundation. Why warm water exercise? The warmth offered by hot water allows muscles to relax and intensifies circulation of blood to the joints. In fact, ever since the discovery of the first hot springs, humans have used the miracle of warm water baths to fight aching joints.

Besides reducing the pain in your joints, exercising in water permits body weight to be supported. This makes exercising in water easier, safer and more relaxing. Not only that, but the resistance that water provides as your body moves in it helps strengthen muscles

These days, what with spas, health clubs and backyard hot tubs, just about anyone has access to a pool of hot water to relax in. Not only does this bring some immediate relief of arthritis symptoms, but it also provides us with a great environment in which we can exercise.

You should consult your doctor before beginning water exercise. Water exercise is completely safe for most people, with a few exceptions. If you’ve have suffered serious joint damage or replacement surgery you may be among them. Your doctor will know what’s right for you. Also be aware of temperature. Water between 83 and 88 degrees Fahrenheit is ideal for exercise. Anything over 100 degrees may be relaxing, but can lead to overheating. After you’ve gotten the doctor go ahead, it’s time to get started.

The Arthritis Foundation Aquatics Program exercises can be found in the free brochure “Water Exercise: Pools, Spas and Arthritis” from the Arthritis Foundation. Classes are also offered at local pools nationwide—contact your local Arthritis Foundation office for information. The classes are lead by a trained instructor, usually last between 45 minutes to an hour and are scheduled 2 to 3 times a week.

With a doctor’s guidance, whether at a local pool or at home, a water exercise program is a fun and effective way to combat arthritis and keep joints and muscles healthy.
