What Does Warm up and Cool Down To Our Body??

 What is WARM UP?? A warm-up is a pre-exercise phase that usually consists of low- to moderate-intensity movements and activities. Its main goal is to progressively raise the body's core temperature, pulse rate, breathing rate, and blood supply to the muscles that are in use. The purpose of a warm-up is to get the body ready for more physically and psychologically taxing activities and exercise. Many exercises, including dynamic stretching, light aerobics, and sport-specific drills , are frequently used as part of a warm-up. These exercises improve brain activation, joint mobility, and muscular flexibility. A warm-up also makes it easier for oxygen to reach the muscles efficiently, which enhances energy metabolism and lowers the chance of injury. The warm-up phase facilitates the change from a state of inactivity or rest to one of physical exertion preparation. It is seen as a crucial part of any fitness programme, helping to enhance performance, reduce injuries, and promote gener

Physical therapists can be trained for aerobic exercise for people of all ages.  How does the Physical Therapist define FITNESS? Fitness is a general term used to describe physical work capacity. Cardiorespiratory control, muscle strength, and endurance, and musculoskeletal mobility are required to perform physical work. Also included in the definition of fitness is optimal body composition. In order to become physically fit, individuals must participate regularly in some form of physical activity that uses large muscle groups and challenges the cardio-respiratory system. Individuals of all ages can improve their overall fitness status by participating in activities such as walking, biking, running, swimming, climbing the stairs, cross-country skiing and/or weight training.

Cervical Stenosis And Neck Pain

Cervical stenosis is a narrowing of the cervical spinal canal. This narrowing of the spinal canal may result in compression of the spinal cord and/or the nerve roots and affect the function of the spinal cord or the nerve, which may cause symptoms associated with cervical radiculopathy or cervical myelopathy. Spinal stenosis may occur as a result of spondylosis (degenerative changes in the cervical spine) but can also be the result of traumatic (fractures and instability) and inflammatory conditions or caused by herniated discs or tumors. Cervical stenosis does not necessarily cause symptoms, but if symptoms are present they will mainly be caused by associated cervical radiculopathy or cervical myelopathy. Clinical Features: Pain in neck or arms, radiating pain Weakness, stiffness or clumsiness in the hands Diminished or altered proprioception Leg weakness and pain Arm and leg dysfunction Difficulty walking Frequent falling  Urinary urgency which may progress to b

Frozen shoulder Physiotherapy

frozen shoulder is mot common in patients 40 to 60 years of age. commonly higher incidence in females.
