Overuse, misuse, trauma, and incomplete healing can result in connective tissue damage. When healing is incomplete or interrupted, the result is weakness within the tendon, joint, or ligament. Anti-inflammatory medications, frequently taken after an injury, also seem to dampen the healing response and result in diminished healing. Joint laxity can cascade into joint degeneration, arthritis, decreased mobility, and pain. Inflammation is the natural repair process which your connective tissue goes through when it is damaged during daily use. Your connective tissue is naturally, completely replaced every 2 years, but it often never fully repairs the damage without the stimulation of the acute healing response that Regenerative Medicine provides.
The collagen structures may also be weak because of hormonal changes, such as with pregnancy, which causes laxity of the sacroiliac joints and other associated ligaments in the low back, feet, ankles, and other structures. Other individuals are predisposed because of genetic variation, possibly because of weaker collagen or more elastic ligaments (double-jointedness), otherwise known as Benign Congenital Hypermobility Syndrome or Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), thyroid disease, and other as yet undiscovered causes. The result of the reduced structural stability is a chronic strain of the remaining ligament and tendon fibers, which are connected to the extremely sensitive periosteum of the bone, which, through nerves, sends pain signals to the brain.

I am my priority 🙋🏽‍♀️✅‼ -

So as some of you might have seen in my stories, I've not had the best day. I though my back pain was just an injury but it turns out , it's a bit more complicated than that. Got my appointment tomorrow to get a bit more info , but to be honest, I am so fed up of the pain that I have decided that I come first. I am putting my health and mental health above everything else, it's time to focus on me and my recovery. I'm not going to wait for a Monday, or a new year to start, I will start TODAY. 💪🏻✅ -

Remember that nothing is more important than your health (mental and physical) and your happiness. Put yourself on top of all your to-do lists. Remind yourself that YOU WILL get better, YOU WILL get through any obstacle that it's thrown your way. You can have bad days but YOU WILL pick yourself up and continue fighting. ‼‼🙏🏼💪🏻

Yay!!! I survived another session without crying haha. Seriously though, recovering from an injury can be just as painful as the injury itself. I did get to talk to my PT about my MRI results so he was able to break things down a bit more than all of my Google searches. Basically, my joints are for sure riddled with Osteoarthritis. The intense pain in the shoulder is because most of the damage is where my shoulder meets the clavicle (referred to as hypertrophic degeneration of the acromioclavicular joint). And it turns out the rest of my crazy arm pain is from my spine issues, the radial nerve is pinched again. The tricky part is that the exercises that need to be done for my shoulder are trouble for my neck and because the damage to my neck is so severe we have to be super careful with everything. One day at a time, I'll get this thing in check.
Who else has some physical therapy stories to share?

Not being able to train upper body for the last month has been HARD!! I love working back and chest and I'm totally going through withdrawls.
The positive side to only being able to train legs and core is that I'm gaining strength even while being in a caloric deficit. Tonight I hit a PR on a couple of exercises, including 95lbs for 2 reps on the lying leg curl!! Up until now my max has always been 65lbs.
It can be frustrating as all hell to exercise when you live with chronic pain, illness, and injuries so taking pride in the small accomplishments is empowering and helps take away the negative thoughts.

This is going to be long, you've been warned haha. 6 years!! 6 years ago today, 2 days after my wedding and on my husband's birthday, was diagnosed with a genetic form of Degenerative Disc Disease, my first invisible illness. I'm now up to 14 herniated discs, 3 inoperable tumors/cysts that will eventually cause my vertebrae to shatter because they're too difficult to remove & will continue to grow, pinched nerves, scoliosis, & severe spinal stenosis. The severity of the stenosis means I "should" have some form of paralysis and with the wrong move or accident will leave me paralyzed from the neck down. Last year I got to add severe Fibromyalgia to the mix and last month a rotator cuff issue decided to join the party thanks to compensating for the neck issues. The pain and fatigue can be insane and something I wouldn't wish on anyone, but in a weird way, I'm thankful for these monsters. I was tough before, but these little bastards have taught me how to be tougher! I refuse to allow my conditions to become an excuse. Instead of giving in and becoming a "victim" I do my best every day to see the positive and keep smiling, at times laughing through the tears. There's been a few bumps the last 2 yrs (hello 25lb weight gain), but with the help of my husband, physical therapists, massage therapist, and coach @coachtaz, I'm working on reversing the damage. These monsters are my biggest motivation to be healthy, build muscle and stay strong. My future depends on it in SO many ways. As difficult and unfair as it is, I've come to terms with the fact that my spine conditions will only get worse. However, instead of using it as an excuse, I'm 100% focused on making it my biggest motivation. I may get exhausted and allow myself to take a pain day every now and then, but I'm learning that that's ok. Hard work and adequate rest, along with learning to constantly adapt, are becoming increasingly important, but the mindset stays the same... I will NOT go down without a fight!!! Thank you to everyone who has followed me over the last few years, the strangers who have become friends and hello to any new followers. I don't post as often as I used to, but I plan on changing that.

Gibson Holwing Wolf Johnson ... I love him so much ♡ he is aging quicker than most dogs. He is 8.5 years old. 100 pounds and not overweight. A Rough Collie, Russian Wolfhound mix. He was thrown away in a cardboard box when he was 5 weeks old. Such a rough start.
He used to drag his back right leg AND his front front right paw. An earlier vet told me degenerative mylopathy would be his fate. I switched vets. He started having chiropractic care and acupuncture ... weekly for 6 months then stayed on a maintenance schedule. He stopped dragging. He became playful and spry .... for 5 years.
He does have degenerative joint disease and chronic arthritis in his hips, pelvis and elbows. He gets Addequin injections, Arnica, massages, reiki ... Last night for the first time ever, he didnt want to come upstairs to sleep in my room. ♡

Every health scare throws me into a panic. Every sign of pain breaks my heart. I was 17 the last time I had a dog ... He came along when I needed him most and we rescued each other. I cant imagine my life without him.

I know he still has many more good days. But today he has been in pain, today his eyes are red from the inflammation he carries, today he just wants to sleep. Send him love. He is such a good boy ♡

This is a horrible way to live! Pain pills don’t work!
Syringes don’t work!
Surgeries don’t get to the root cause of pain like this!
Dealing with full body aches in joints?
Eventually you will get a diagnosis of #fibromyalgia #degenerativediscdisease #degenerativemyelopathy #degenerativejointdisease #arthritis or whatever the latest diagnosis is!
No one gets real results with this present way of doing things!
Think differently about your health!

Degenerative joint disease
بیماری دی جی دی ناشی از افزایش سن،افزایش کلسیم سازی،حرکات ناهماهنگ،بدلایل ژنتیکی ونژادی و انگشت اضافه باعث افزایش درد در ناحیه لگن باعث عدم توانایی حرکت و فعالیت در حیوانات می شود که باید سر استخوان ران طی یک جراحی برداشته شود
وجود انگشت اضافه باعث عدم تقارن در حرکات و گیر کردن به محیط پیرامون و درد بیشتر در ناحیه نیز می شود
باید در کودکی نسبت به برداشتن انگشت اضافی پاها نیز اقدام نمود

Time and Gravity. Two forces I've worked so hard to collaborate with, understand and yet defy. Gymnastics was my identity before I hit puberty but no one truly knew how my Osgoodschlatter's Disease or Psoriasis were indications that my skeleton was going to endure such a severe case of Degenerative Joint Disease by the time I reached my 40's.
My knees have been intensely painful since I was 12 and even after Cheerleading in High School, I still powered  through Coaching 500+ Gymnasts a week for over 15yrs, 20+ years of Music Photojournalism and 4yrs of teaching Camera labs & film crews on hundreds of student productions. Nevermind all the waterskiing, wakeboarding, snowboarding, skiing, skateboarding and trudging through tons of snow before I left New England in 1998.

I never allowed myself the time to even think about or admit how serious the pain really was over the years and that I should probably get some x rays until those pesky things called time & gravity teamed up, won and I went down on the night of Sept. 28th, 2016. It took 9 months after that to earn my new polyethylene & titanium left knee & its been an absolute life changer over the last 2 years! I can SUP, swim, do spin classes, walk Houdini, go up and down (small) flights of stairs, get in and out of my van and even roll over in bed without excruciating pain.

However, my new x rays reveal that my right knee is now officially bone on bone & I start the long & painful process I went through 3 years ago with exhausting every option Insurance makes you try before greenlighting you for a total replacement surgery.

I do currently have a job scanning & restoring celluloid film, prints and documents for professional photographers, filmmakers and family estates that I absolutely love and am driving all the way back to Los Angeles to keep…but am looking for other part time/entry level options to save up for the surgeries ahead. I'd be forever grateful for any serious leads for entry level/part time positions in the Post Production/Colorist, Book Publishing & Art Gallery worlds.
Spiraling out my ♡ & gratitude! .

My knees have been intensely painful since I was 12 and even after Cheerleading in High School, I still powered  through Coaching 500+ Gymnasts a week for over 15yrs, 20+ years of Music Photojournalism and 4yrs of teaching Camera labs & film crews on hundreds of student productions. Nevermind all the waterskiing, wakeboarding, snowboarding, skiing, skateboarding and trudging through tons of snow before I left New England in 1998.

I never allowed myself the time to even think about or admit how serious the pain really was over the years and that I should probably get some x rays until those pesky things called time & gravity teamed up, won and I went down on the night of Sept. 28th, 2016. It took 9 months after that to earn my new polyethylene & titanium left knee & its been an absolute life changer over the last 2 years! I can SUP, swim, do spin classes, walk Houdini, go up and down (small) flights of stairs, get in and out of my van and even roll over in bed without excruciating pain.

However, my new x rays reveal that my right knee is now officially bone on bone & I start the long & painful process I went through 3 years ago with exhausting every option Insurance makes you try before greenlighting you for a total replacement surgery.

I do currently have a job scanning & restoring celluloid film, prints and documents for professional photographers, filmmakers and family estates that I absolutely love and am driving all the way back to Los Angeles to keep…but am looking for other part time/entry level options to save up for the surgeries ahead. I'd be forever grateful for any serious leads for entry level/part time positions in the Post Production/Colorist, Book Publishing & Art Gallery worlds. 
Spiraling out my ♡ & gratitude! .

I got so many pecans this morning. They are opening up and ready to harvest. I need Bob to get a ladder and help me.
Next I need to figure out how to open, cook, make into sweets.
The shells were wet with morning dew so they left my fingers a bit orange. All good. I was happy doing it.
I paid for almost immediately tho.
Looking up, stretching, standing still and all of it has my pots and dysautonomia acting up. I'm feeling a bit better than earlier but still feel like a nap might be in my future.
Maybe after a nap I can figure out what I need to make a pie. 😁

Welcome to my newest adventure in the chronicles of how my body is trying to take me out. I've been having some different and new shoulder and arm pain the last few months and I finally caved to get it checked out. The positive side is that the new pain isn't caused by my neck getting worse. My workouts are going to be altered like crazy the next few weeks, but I'll make it work. I swear if it's not one thing it's another.

I never believed it until now! If you don't use it, you lose it! I was told at 29 years old that I had the spine of a 70 year old man. All these years of chronic pain. All these surgeries I could have avoided. All the medications, injections, and epidurals!!! All I had to do was stay active and exercise! I could still possibly have my medical career! I gave into the pain. I never fought against it until now! These days, I have NO CHOICE in the matter! If I don't exercise, I'm in severe pain. Even when I'm in pain, I exercise through it, and I feel less pain in the end! I'm going to show the world there's another way to conquer chronic pain! 4 months clean!!!!! #exerciseforpainrelief #exercise #stayactive #nevergiveup #chronicpain #yoga #meditation #painrelief #youdontuseityouloseit #congenitaldeffect

Foods sre a vital determinant in the health of our joints. Don’t want deterioration of your joints? Prefer to avoid hip or knee replacement? The impact of high impact sports can be mitigated - or worsened - by food choices.
Cartilafe, for example, is formed primarily from collagen and elastin proteins and contains glucosaminoglycans (GAGS), chondroitin sulphate, keratin sulfate And hyuralonic acid. What does that mean? Renowned researcher and spirts doctor for numerous professional spirts franchises such as the Los Angeles Lakers , Dr Cate Shanahan said of glucosaminoglycans, “you won’t find these in any foods (besides bone broth) that you eat. It is so essential to our bodies it deserves its own group on the food pyramid. It literally has an effect like a growth hormone”. Yet this is via a robust cup of #bonebroth that lends to your joints’ very structure. To its revitalisation.
Further, chondroitin sulfate is a structural component of cartilage and essential in maintaining the integrity of your cells. Found in real bone broth chondroitin also lines the bloid bessels and has been found to play a role in lowering cardiovascular disease.
#bestofthebone bone broth is the 10x-20x higher in collagen, thanks to slow-cooked goodness and is high in essential fatty acids EPA and DHA (thanks to the rich, lovely marrow). The combination of glucosaminoglycans- collagen, minerals, glucosamine chondroitin found in high amounts in a cuppa Best of the Bone can be useful in improving joint health.

Please my fellow IC warriors do not get the wrong idea when you see other IC’ers living what seems to be a normal life. Everyone’s IC is different and if you have lesions or ulcers it’s even worse. Please continue to follow the IC DIET as strictly as possible, drink alkaline water, take every single supplement recommended until you find what works for you. The best supplement I’ve found is buffer PH it’s made by vaxa and is sold on amazon it is a system alkalizer. I have had some of the darkest months since May, that I honestly didn’t think I would make it out alive....but we are called warriors for a reason! We fight! We don’t give up! What’s ok for some isn’t ok for the rest of us! #chronicpainwarrior #icwarrior #interstitialcystitis #beastmom #nevergiveup💪 #keepfighting #fibromyalgia #RA #degenerativediscdisease #degenerativejointdisease #mentalhealthawareness #addictionsurvivor #recovery #hope #freedom

Thumb pain? Thumb arthritis.

A vast number of people suffer from thumb pain with the most common contributor being thumb arthritis in the cmc joint.
Performing this simple exercise can help manage the pain. The first dorsal interosseous is a strong finger muscle that comes from the side of the thumb bone and helps to keep the base of your thumb on the trapezium. Helping to maintain the strength of this muscle, and learning to use it properly when you pinch will help to protect your thumb joint and keep it stable.

💪💀Musculoskeletal MUST-SEE right here!💪💀
.
👩🏻‍⚕️If you treat people with spine or joint pain, or if you have experienced it yourself - this graphic is SO important. I need to post it in my waiting room!
.
🏨 I explain this concept in my clinic daily, mostly to spine pain patients who are focused on their MRI findings and not the symptoms at hand. We must treat based on symptoms and physical exam findings! .
👁Look at how many people with NO SYMPTOMS AT ALL have findings on imaging: 87% with bulging discs, 43% with cartilage defect in the knee, 68% with an injury to the labrum in the hip…
.
🔑There are many factors which contribute to the pain we experience and the structure itself may not need to change on imaging in order for someone to improve. I tell patients every day that many of these changes were already present when they were feeling fine, and we can be conditioned back to that state with the right treatment plan.
.
✅So, let’s not let our imaging findings bring us down or undermine our recovery.

"My dog Hank was diagnosed with severe arthritis and degenerative joint disease when he was 6 months old. He's incredibly athletic and smart and I wanted to do everything I could to keep him healthy, strong and pain free for as long as I could. I'm not kidding when I say that Leslie and Bryan and the incredible staff at Two Hands Four Paws has added YEARS to Hank's life, as well as increased his quality of life. He just turned 10 this year. Bryan and Les provided expertise, care, support and guidance for us through a TPLO, Facial Paralysis, cancer, a severe case of IBD where Hank lost 20lbs and endless other bumps along the road. I've recently moved out of state- my biggest hesitation about moving was not having 2H4P for Hank. Unfortunately, I've seen the degeneration of Hank's strength as there are no facilities like 2H4P where I live. We've had a FHO, and rehab wasn't an option for us. I can see how much he needs it. Bryan and Leslie- please franchise! Every city needs your services!!!" -Jan S. #FeedbackFriday #twohandsfourpaws #animalrehabilitation

One week from today, I will wrap myself up in yet another hospital gown as my doctors and I finally pursue Autologous Conditioned Serum (ACS) injections to combat the pain and inflammation caused by #hEDS and degenerative joint disease in both TMJs. The road to ACS has been a five-year journey. We’ve tried trigger point injections, laser therapy, physical therapy, acupuncture, PRP injections and countless other healing methods, but all have failed. Short of a total jaw replacement (which is not even a viable option for my situation), ACS stands as my last line of treatment in the United States. Would you please pray that God would use this procedure to bring much needed relief and healing?
.
The first time I learned about PRP and ACS injections, I was sitting in my @dukehealth pain management doctor’s office. It was about one year ago, and, while it wasn’t an audible voice, I very clearly heard God say, “my daughter, this is what I’m going to use to heal you.” Because PRP was the cheaper option, we tried that first. Unfortunately, it did not bring the healing we were hoping for. While I was discouraged at first, now, I have to trust that God will keep His promise to me through ACS, the other treatment option I heard about on a sunny day in May just last year. After all, blessed is she who believes that the Lord will fulfill His promises to her. Can I get an amen?? (See Luke 1:45)

Today’s grand rebellious act. Flat on my back, in bed, fought with my compression socks and leggings until I got them on, put on my back brace and my glasses, looked my illness in the face and proclaimed, “Not today, motherfucker. Not today.” Tremoring hands, blurry vision, and pain throughout my body... I picked up my brush, and painted anyway. “You will NOT take this from me. Not yet. Not today.” 🎨🔥💋 #rebelspoonie #artist #arttherapy #mentalhealth
