Two other common conditions that befall the shoulder is supraspinatis tendonitis (when it is painful on the Shoulder-tendonitis-3Dtip of the shoulder) and frozen shoulder (when the whole shoulder seems to have completely seized up making any movement very painful). This chapter will explain the triggers to shoulder problems and the 3D animation will show how the shoulders  function and the reasons for discomfort or pain.

  •  Hips and Pelvis Chapter             (Duration : 24.11s) 

Lower-Back-Stretch-6Pain in the groin is common. The muscle usually involved is the Hip Flexor or Psoas. It is attached to the front of each of the lumbar vertebrae. It traverses through the pelvis and exits at the groin attaching to the upper thigh bone or Femur. Tightness in this muscle can cause inflammation at its attachment point creating pain in the groin.

The main muscles  that cause grief are called Gluteus Medius and Gluteus Minimus. They are the smaller cousins of the bigger buttock muscle Gluteus Hamstring-Pain-from-GroinMaximus which is looser by nature. These muscles are often tight and the pain pattern is typically quite defined to the lateral hip area.

Pain above, below or under your knee cap could be excessive tension in the Quad group. Pain at the back of the knee can be the result of hamstring tension.

  •  Legs, Feet and Ankles Chapter       (Duration 13.13s

FootAnkle-StretchOur feet and ankles do a huge amount of work. They are like springs. Arches length ways and across the fore foot act like shock absorbers. They are held and maintained by muscles and ligaments in the foot and up into the leg. A number of common situations can result in foot, ankle and leg problems.

Excessive muscle tension in the leg prevents the foot from flexing thus placing more strain on the spring dynamic of the foot and muscle attachments. This commonly presents as Achilles tendon inflammation at the back of the heel. Also shin splints where the Sprained-Anklemuscle on the front of the leg (shin) is pulling excessively at its attachment to the bone. This chapter will explain the triggers to legs, feet and ankle problems and the 3D animation will show how these function and the reasons for discomfort or pain.
