IT band syndrome is a usual cause of knee pain or outer thigh pain, especially seen among runners. In this article, we will discuss about the various causes, symptoms, treatment and prevention of IT band syndrome.
Pain on the outer side of the knee is the main symptom of IT syndrome. It is usually seen among runners and cyclists but it can affect others too.
In today’s life, most people are exposed to extreme stress and environmental toxins like endocrine-disrupting and cancer-causing chemicals present in everything from food to water and household cleaners. And our body always responds defensively.
To fight inflammation, we need to help our bodies to cope with this continuous attack of immune triggers. Eating an anti-inflammatory diet is one of the best ways to help your body combat inflammation.
People suffering from diabetes are prone to many other health problems. One of them is a foot problem. If the blood sugar level is high for prolonged periods, it can wreak havoc on many body parts including the feet. The two main conditions that are responsible for foot problems are Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) and Peripheral neuropathy (PN). Let us look at PVD in detail here.
The most common form of peripheral neuropathy is due to diabetes. People with diabetes have an abnormal elevation of their glucose and lack adequate insulin to metabolise the glucose. As a consequence, the blood glucose damages the nerve. This can occur in any type of diabetes. It doesn’t matter if the patient is on oral anti diabetic drugs, on insulin or is diet controlled. The nerve damage that occurs is considered to be permanent.
Christmas is just around the corner and everyone is going to be surrounded with savories and sweets. Even though your cravings might get satisfied, but it results in a altogether different story for your body. Usually, people tend to gain weight during the festive season.
Feet are complex systems, that act as an interface between the rest of the body and the ground. It is a major contributor to shock absorption and propulsion. The shock absorption component comes into play when your foot hits the ground, the propulsion phase occurs while you are pushing off and using your foot as a rigid lever to propel you forward. These are two very different functions with different biomechanical requirements.
