How to prevent a ski injury
The new ski season is launched with the snowfall of the last few days. It is a fun and magical sport because of its mountain setting. Skiing is demanding and places unusual demands on our bodies. To prevent injuries and fully enjoy the season, Boris Hueber’s Lausanne osteopathic practice recommends a good physical preparation with a little cardio, sheathing and above all a specific strengthening of the lower limbs. The knee is the most affected joint with mainly the rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament of the knee. A specific work of the hamstrings is necessary to strengthen them as well as a work of proprioception. You can be accompanied by a physiotherapist and a specialized coach for this. To complete this preparation, a postural balance is essential to avoid injury. An osteopathic session is recommended to rebalance your pelvis, check your lumbar vertebrae and lower limb muscle chains. As we say “better be safe than sorry” or “prevention is better than cure”. Boris Hueber’s osteopathic practice wishes you a wonderful season.
Treatment of migraines in osteopathy
Migraines, headaches or chronic headaches, have you consulted our osteopathic practice? Headache is characterized by severe to moderate headache and often affects patients’ quality of life. Two main forms are considered, episodic tension headache and chronic tension headache. Episodic tension headache is said to be mainly based on muscle factors. The reason for the pain is an increase in the tension and sensitivity of the peri-cranial muscles (trapezius in the neck, massage and temporal in the face), often favoured by postural factors. For chronic tension headache, it is probably more related to a malfunction of pain control systems. In both forms of tension headaches, poor stress management is frequently presented by patients. The osteopath’s goal is to shut down the source by treating: -Muscular tensions applied to the skull (trapezius, neck and jaw muscles). -Disorders of the temporomandibular joint (jaw). -All other back or peripheral disorders that can cause tension. -All the techniques used in osteopathy have an impact on the involuntary nervous system and therefore on stress management.
