Hip Pain During Boston Marathon Training

Seeing as how the marathon is just next monday I thought today’s post should be about the most common problems I’m seeing in the office with runners. At this point, the longest run of their training is over, and they’ve been able to see how their bodies are going to hold up for the majority of the race. The most prevalent injury I’m seeing after this long run isn’t really an injury at all, it’s an annoyance for most people. It’s described as a “pinching” or “jamming” in the hip joint. Symptoms include slight pain in the front of the hip or side of the hip, restricted motion when bringing knees to the chest, or just a feeling of something not being right in the hip itself.

Stretching Before vs. After Exercise – Copley Square Chiropractic

If you live in Boston you have inevitably noticed the summer weather we’re finally experiencing… and you may have been so excited that you threw on your sneakers and bolted out of the office to get a quick walk/run in. You can’t walk down a single street in Boston without seeing people out and about. But along with this new found activity level Boston is experiencing comes an inevitable question… when to stretch? Before… after… does it really matter? Lets take a look at the physiology of stretching.

Migraine and Tension Headaches 

Why does my head hurt again? I didn’t do anything, I didn’t drink too much, I didn’t hurt myself, but my head is still killing me… why?

This is an extremely common complaint that many Boston Chiropractors hear in their offices. People dealing with constant headaches and not understanding why they won’t go away. Fortunately, there is always a cause of headaches and it’s not because “it’s just how I am” as many people think. There are skeletal, muscular, hormonal, nutritional and neurological causes to headaches and once we find out where the headache is coming from we can take steps to cure them.

HBO Special Says Nutrition is the Key To Weight Loss
 
 
If you tuned into the HBO special last night, The Weight Of A Nation: Confronting America's Obesity Epidemic, you probably noticed 2 major themes. The first, and most crucial, is that obesity is killing more people and ruining America's Healthcare system faster than any other health issue... and it's not even close. The money it takes to take care of obesity related diseases such as diabetes and heart disease is disturbing to say the least...

TMJ PAIN: What is it? And what you can do about it.
People come into our Boston Chiropractic office on a daily basis and say "I'm here to see the chiropractor because I have TMJ" so this post is for those of you who have experienced the jaw pain, neck pain, headaches, or inability to chew that is associate with "TMJ."
The first thing to look at is the acronym "TMJ"... what does it stand for? The medical name is Temperomandibular Joint. If we break this down further into its separate parts we have three separate terms. The first word is Tempero, which truly means Temporal. The temporal bone is part of your skull. The second word is Mandibular, which means mandible...which means Jaw.

In between each vertebrae of the spine are shock absorbers called discs.  They are like large pads of cartilage that prevent each bone from rubbing against each other.  Similar to how a knee has cartilage to keep it moving, the spine has discs to keep it moving.  I like to think of a disc as a jelly doughnut because each disc has an outer layer which is stronger, and an inner layer that is more fluid.  Similar to a jelly doughnut.  When someone bends forward the jelly in the middle of the disc will naturally be pushed...

I'm always getting asked about "other things" people can do to decrease their pain, when they can't make it into the office.  Luckily, in my former life I was a personal trainer so I've always got certain exercises or stretches that can help some of the time.  A few people need weight loss, some people need muscle strength, and others need a different way of thinking...Check out our blog to read more

If you turn your hand over, palm facing the ceiling, and look down at your elbow you'll see a bump on the inside that sticks out a bit.  That bump is called the medial epicondeyle of the elbow and on the opposite side of that bump is another smaller bump called the lateral epicondyle.  Both spots are attachment points of the forearm muscles.  The medial epicondyle is where the flexor muscles attach (the ones that flex your wrist in a "come here" motion)   READ MORE

Essential During Triathlon Training

 

Dr. Piretti has been an essential resource for me, mentally and physically, as I started training for and competing in triathlons a year ago. My endeavor to complete a sprint-length triathlon was made especially challenging due to my prior lack of experience with sports and the stresses the body endures while training and competing.

From day one, I've been able to rely on Dr. Piretti to answer questions about unfamiliar training-related aches and pains and to provide appropriate chiropractic treatment that allowed me to safely train at high intensity levels. In fact, I felt so good midway through the season that I decided to do a half-Ironman distance triathlon. I don't believe I'd have been able to cross the finish line without Dr. Piretti's expertise.

Dr. Piretti and Laura have always been welcoming and professional. I highly recommend Copley Square Chiropractic to anyone seeking preventive or therapeutic chiropractic treatment for any reason. As evidenced by the other Yelp reviews, Dr. Piretti is clearly knowledgeable about a wide range of health care issues for patients of all types, not just athletes and sports-related treatment.
