How We Treat Plantar Fasciitis

Adults between the ages of 30 and 60 with occupations that involve a lot of time spent standing are usually affected by.

The patient ends up going to the doctor and is diagnosed with plantar fasciitis only 2-3 months after the first of symptoms.

Osteoporosis and how Yumeiho® can help

Osteoporosis is a progressive metabolic bone disease that decreases bone mineral density (bone mass per unit volume) thus damaging bone structure. Weakness of the skeletal bone leads to the appearance of fractures with minimal trauma, especially to the thoracic and lumbar spine, wrist and hip joint. Acute or chronic back pain occurs frequently. The diagnosis is made by osteo-densitometry. Prevention and treatment involve the intake of calcium and vitamin D, exercise that increases bone density and muscle strength, special massage techniques that relax the muscles, thus reducing the patient’s risk of falling and drug therapy to maintain bone mass and stimulate new bone formation.

The unbalanced body of the rider and the failure to reach the objectives

All equestrian sport reflects a partnership between horse and rider, a partnership build on (non-verbal) communication. Much of this communication is coneveyed throught the rider’s body position. The higher the team aims to perform, the more subtle these postural clues need to be.
Only a relaxed rider, sitting correctly, can apply aids ( the signals by which the rider communicates with the horse) well.
Body imbalances of the rider can result in ‘disconnect’ that may adversely affect performance. For instance, if the rider’s posture has become imbalanced or asymmetrical, secondary to a vertebral or pelvic malalignment, this information will unwittingly be communicated to the horse. The horse may then respond to commands that the rider is unaware he or she is making.
