Sciatica Animation

Sciatica or sciatic neuralgia is a commoncondition in which one of the spinal nerve roots of the sciatic nerve is compressed resultingin lower back, buttock and leg pain. Sciatic nerve is a large nerve derived from 5 spinalnerve roots: L4, L5, S1, S2 and S3. It runs from the lumbar spine through the buttockdown the leg and the foot on the posterior aspect. There is one sciatic nerve on eachside of the body. Typically, only one side of the body is affected.A typical sciatica pain is described as a sharp shooting pain in the lower back, downthe buttock, thigh and leg on one side of the body. There may also be numbness, burningand tingling sensations. The pain can get

worse with sitting, moving, sneezing, or coughing.The patterns of pain depend on which nerve root is compressed, and follow the dermatomedistribution. The most common cause of sciatica is a herniatedspinal disc. The spinal disc is a soft elastic cushion that sits in between the vertebraeof the spine. With age, the discs become rigid and may crack, the gellike center of thedisc may protrude out and become a herniation outside the normal boundaries of the disc.Disc herniation presses on the nerve root as it exits the spine.In majority of the cases the condition resolves by itself after a few weeks of rest and conservativetreatment. Pain relief, nonsteroidal antiinflammatory

drugs and muscle relaxants may be prescribed.Stretching exercises and physical therapy may be recommended.Surgery may be needed if the pain doesn't go away after 3 months or more of conservativetreatments. The herniated disc may be removed in a procedure called discectomy. Or, in anotherprocedure called laminotomy, part of the bone of the vertebrae may be cut to make room forthe nerve.

KT Tape Rib

Hi, I'm Chris Harper and with me is John, and we're here to demonstrate an application for rib pain, this is for when you have pain at or around the ribs some causes for this may be excessive strain in twisting motions bluntforce and abrupt changes in direction KT tape helps treat this condition by relieving pressure to reduce pain, and may increase circulation for this application we need to position

the area on stretch, so we're going to bring the arm up overhead, you're going to do this within comfort though don't force yourself into a painful range and in this case I'm going to place a red dot to indicate where the pain may be your pain may be in a slightly different location so the first part of this application is to take one full strip I'm going to twist and tear the backing paper right in the middle

I'm going to peel that back, and I'm being very careful not to touch the adhesive of the tape I'm going to handle the tape with the paper and what I'm going to do is just go in line with the ribs, right above that painful spot I'm going to place the tape on fifty percent stretch so I'm going to stretch this nice and even with mythumbs not gripping it like that but nice flat pressure with the thumbs

I'm going to stretch out a hundred percent, and back that half way off and place that strip right down the very ends of the strip are going to be laid down with absolutely zero stretch so same thing on this side, just absolutely zero stretch on this end for my next part is another full strip just like the first, I'm going to twist and tear the backing paper right in the

middle of the piece, being careful not to touch the adhesive I'm going to place this again on fifty percent stretch nice even pressure, so if I stretch all the way and then back that half way off I'm going to go just below that area of pain and lay that strip down laying the ends down with absolutely zero stretch, being careful not to touch the adhesive on the tape just give that a little bit of a rub to create friction and some heat so it adheres well

and for my third piece twisting and tearing just like the other two, right in the middle being careful not to touch the adhesive applying a nice even stretch, fifty percent once again, now going vertically and I'm surrounding that spot of pain so a hundredpercent stretch, backing that off halfway, so I get fifty percent stretch I'm going to lay that down with the tail ends with absolutely zero stretch
