A toothache is something we all have experienced at least once in our lifetime, and over 90% of adults have had some form of tooth decay. Fortunately, there are more than affordable treatment methods you can try at home to kill a toothache in a minute. A cold compress is effective for any kind of pain you are experiencing. Peppermint tea smells great and has some numbing properties. Hydrogen Peroxide is a pain reliever that will help you manage the discomfort. It can not only reduce plaque but also heal bleeding gums and kill the bad bacteria. You can use it as mouthwash. Clove has been treating toothaches for ages as it has eugenol, which is a natural antiseptic. It has been widely used in Ayurveda and Chinese medicine. Guava leaves are anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial. They not only alleviate toothaches but also relieve mouth ulcers and swollen gums. Its antibacterial and antioxidant properties make thyme and excellent toothache treatment tool. Wheatgrass has antibacterial properties, which offer both short-term and long-term benefits while preventing tooth decay and pain. Garlic kills harmful bacteria and works as a pain reliever. Saltwater is a natural disinfectant, and also an easy and effective remedy to cure a toothache. Onion contains phytochemicals that target the germs responsible for the infection and gives you a break from the pain. Music: Down with Paradise - Norma Rockwell https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music TIMESTAMPS Cold Compress 0:39 Peppermint tea 1:17 Hydrogen peroxide 1:57 Clove or Clove Oil 2:26 Guava Leaves 3:17 Thyme 3:47 Wheatgrass 4:40 Garlic 5:23 Salt water rinse 6:07 Onion 6:42 Bonus: Applying acupressure 7:22 SUMMARY -Use an ice pack or put ice in a plastic bag and wrap it with a thin cloth, place this on the aching tooth for 15 minutes to numb the nerves. -Add 1 teaspoon of dried peppermint leaves to a cup of boiling water and let it brew for 20 minutes. Then, use the mixture to rinse your mouth. -Mix 3% hydrogen peroxide with equal parts water. Do not swallow it. Once you spit it out, make sure to rinse your mouth with pure water a few times. -In a pinch, use a small amount of powdered clove on the tooth or chew the whole clove a little to release its oil. Also, you can use a tiny amount of clove oil, about 2 drops, and place it on the affected area until the pain subsides. -Either simply chew a leaf or two until the juice starts working on the affected tooth. Or, place few guava leaves in boiling water, allow the liquid to cool to a warm temperature, and then add a sprinkle of sea salt. Use this solution as a mouthwash. -Mix a few drops of thyme essential oil with water on a cotton ball. Once the oil is diluted, apply the cotton ball to the aching area. -For best results chew wheatgrass directly or use its juice as a mouthwash. -The best approach to using garlic as a toothache remedy is to either make a paste of it and place it on the affected area or chew it slowly. -Mix 1/2 tsp of salt into a glass of warm water and use it as a mouthwash. It also prevents swelling and cleans the area around the toothache. -Cut off a piece of onion and chew it on the side of your mouth that is in pain. This allows the juice from the onion to penetrate your tooth. -Press and hold the point behind your outer ankle bone for about a minute with your fingertip. You can also try to press the point between the base of your thumb and your index finger on the back of your hand with the thumb of the other hand. Both should help you feel better.

Absolute Best Creme for Sore Muscles & Arthritis & You Can Make it. From my personal experiences of working out and exercising for decades, I have found that the absolute best ointment or creme for sore muscles and joint pain has been a combination of DSMO (dimethyl sulfoxide) and arnica montana. DSMO has been used since the early 1960's for joint and arthritic pain and pain from over-exertion of muscles, especially with professional athletes. It was Doctor Stanley Jacob that first experimented successfully with using DSMO (dimethyl sulfoxide) on arthritic patients. I have found that a product consisting of about 50% DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide) and 50% arinica montana with the addition of some aloe vera and coconut oil to be highly effective in almost instantly alleviating pain from sore muscles from over-exercising or bring about instant relieve from joint, back or arthritic pain or discomfort.

Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video describing anatomy of the coccyx (tailbone) as well as treatment of specific injuries associated with the coccyx. The coccyx is commonly referred to as the tailbone. It is the final segment of the vertebral column comprising of two to four separate or fused vertebrae (the coccygeal vertebrae below the sacrum) below the sacrum. The coccyx is a very small bone which most doctors are not very familiar with. The occyx provides an important attachment for tendons, ligaments and muscles. Lumbosacral spine x-rays and MRI will not show the coccyx. If you want to vies the coccyx, order coccyx views or MRI. Dynamic views of the coccyx while the patient is sitting leaning backwards is needed for imaging of the coccyx. These x-rays should then be compared to non-weight bearing films with patient standing or lying to the side. Excessive movement of the coccyx is abnormal. When sitting, the coccyx shifts forward and acts as a shock absorber. The coccyx bears more weight when the person is sitting and leaning backwards compared to when leaning forward. Coccyx pain symptoms (coccydynia) •Pain during sitting or when getting up from sitting. •Pain originating in the middle just above the anus. •Pain improves while leaning forward or to the side. •Local tenderness over the area. The most frequent causes of coccyx pain: •Falling on the buttocks or backwards. •Fracture/dislocation due to trauma or injury •Malignancy •Infection •Pregnancy/labor •Idiopathic Falling on the tailbone can lead to coccygeal pain, known as coccydynia, resulting in chronic inflammation of the sacrococcygeal joint. Dislocation of the coccyx occurs when there is a separation of the coccyx from the sacrum. Types of coccyx injuries •Anterior dislocation •Posterior dislocation •Anterior angulation •Hooked coccyx In addition to hooking and dislocation casuing pain, there may be a side bend deformity causing the coccyx to be angled sharply. Side bend deformity is usualy to the left. Dural tension causing sacrococcygeal syndrome, low back pain and other symtpoms is a non-proven theory. Curving of the coccyx cause increased dural tension. Coccygeal extension releaves tension and back pain. Treatment of coccyx injuries include: •Manipulation •Therapy •Cushion for sitting: doughnut, balloon, etc. •Injections •Surgery as a last resort. Surgical treatment of coccyx injury 1-Incision for exposure of the coccyx 2-Detachment of the muscles inserted into the coccyx. 3-The fractured coccyx is removed 4-The wound is irrigated and closed and the patient is given antibiotics.

Simple tip to help work around elbow tendon pain in your workouts. Golfers Elbow Re-hab: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sv3T4UBhwik Tennis Elbow Re-hab: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_sMkg40o20 Download Your FREE Bodybuilding Diet Plan at: http://www.leehayward.com/bodybuilding-quick-start-kit Friend Me Up On Facebook at: http://www.facebook.com/total.fitness.bodybuilding Check out my Bodybuilding Blog at: http://leehayward.com/blog Join the Total Fitness Bodybuilding "Inner Circle" Coaching Club at: http://www.TotalFitnessBodybuilding.com Tennis elbow and Golfers elbow are type of tendonitis where there is swelling of the tendons, that causes pain and discomfort in the elbow and forearm. These are forms of tendonitis that can occur to anyone, not just golfers or tennis players. Any form of repetitive gripping activities, especially if they use the thumb and first two fingers, may contribute to tennis elbow or golfers elbow. Doing repetitive motions -- like gripping a tennis racket, swinging a golf club, or lifting weights can strain the muscles and put too much stress on the tendons. That constant tugging can eventually cause microscopic tears in the tissue. It's very common among bodybuilders and weight lifters plus anyone who does heavy physical labor work. The symptoms of tennis elbow include pain and tenderness in the bony knob on the outside of your elbow. This knob is where the injured tendons connect to the bone. The pain may also radiate into the upper or lower arm. Although the damage is in the elbow, you're likely to hurt when doing things with your hands. Golfers elbow is very similar, except the pain is along the inside of the elbow and inner forearm. If you have either form of elbow tendonitis you'll feel pain and weakness when you stain your arm in certain positions. So the best thing you can do is to modify your workouts so that you don't aggravate the injury anymore and let it heal. I also have some good re-hab videos that you can watch that cover some Tennis Elbow and Golfers Elbow exercises that you can perform to help speed up recovery.

Most costochondritis is NOT a mysterious inflammation which nobody knows anything about. I’m a New Zealand physiotherapist – we’d see it as a straightforward problem where the rib hinges at the back are jammed, so the ones at the front work harder to compensate, get irritated, then inflamed. If there’s also swelling then it’s called Tietze’s Syndrome. This is explained in detail in my YouTube video ‘How To Fix (most) Costochondritis and Tietze’s Syndrome Chest Pain’. We got swamped with requests for more specific details of how you fix it – here they are. Serious note first: chest pain could be heart, so definitely get yourself checked out by a doctor first. But more than half of chest pain isn’t the heart or anything else dire. The ’-itis’ ending of costochondritis (CC) means ‘inflammation.’ This sends doctors and sufferers alike off on a mystical quest to find something to suppress it, e.g. anti-inflammatory medications or steroid shots into the rib joints on the breastbone, or Omega-3, turmeric, etc. These aren’t wrong, but they miss the point, which is why they don’t work well, or at all, or give a lasting result on most CC. The ribs are designed to hinge at both ends (like a bucket handle) to let you breathe. If the hinges at the back are frozen, the ones around the front have to frantically work overtime. So they get irritated, then inflamed – and there’s your costochondritis. You fix it by getting the rib cage movement back to normal, especially the costovertebral (CV) joints where the ribs hinge onto your spine. Here’s how we do that. You might not need all of the components I’m describing, but chronic cases probably will. (4.38) Get the frozen CV joints moving again. This is the core of it. If you’ve had the chest pain for more than a few months, you’ll need a Backpod. Sorry, but I just cannot locate anything else on the net that will actually give you enough specific leverage to stretch the collagen which has tightened around the immobile CV rib joints. It’s a shaped high-tech cushioned fulcrum you lie back on, which uses your upper body weight to free up the tight rib hinges. You have to stretch the tightened collagen around the hinges or they just freeze up again. The Backpod is also the gentlest way to start these back rib hinges moving again, with no pressure on the inflamed rib joints around the front. (The Backpod has other uses. We built it primarily to counter the iHunch – the frozen stooped upper back that drives most neck pain and headache, especially if you’re hunching over laptops, tablets or smartphones. Just Google ‘Backpod’, or link is https://www.bodystance.co.nz/en/costochondritis/.) The CV rib joints can be so frozen that they may also need the extra leverage of a manipulation to unlock them fully. An osteopath, chiropractor or manipulating physio can do this. However don’t get sucked in to going back repeatedly for the same thing – it’s expensive and won’t last anyway. Health practitioners vary. You can ask any of them, including your doctor, to watch these videos - that’s a perfectly reasonable request. In my experience, if they don’t listen then they tend not to be much good at what they’re doing anyway. (8.52) Massage simply has more leverage on shortened scarred muscles than stretching. A good massage therapist will cover the usual back, neck and shoulder muscles, serratus anterior, the lats, pecs, intercostals, sternalis and the specific scarring after chest surgery or mastectomy. (10.07) The two stretches are useful, but stretching can’t get effective leverage on scarred intercostal muscles between the ribs. Add the specific hands-on rib stretch I showed with the buckle handles. (12.43) Working the hinges: As things loosen up, do the twisting exercise to work the rib machinery back into full movement– like putting oil on a door hinge and moving it backwards and forwards. Go gently initially or it’ll just stir up the irritated ribs around the front - back off for a few days if this happens. (14.37) Work an anti-inflammatory gel like Voltaren or diclofenac into the painful bits twice daily to suppress the inflammation on the rib hinges – better targeted than taking a pill. The occasional flare of the pain as things are getting moving again is quite common – just back off for a day or so and use more gel. (17.00) Very low dose tricyclic antidepressants, e.g. amitriptyline, used NOT as an anti-depressant but in a very low dose over a few months to settle down the fired-up nervous pathways that have been carrying the pain signals for so long and have become really good at it: see your doctor. I hope all this helps you. YouTube diagnosis and treatment can’t be a perfect fit in all cases. But you can see where I’m coming from and it does make sense. Assume that of course costochondritis is fixable, and in a logical and practical way. Of course it’s not a mystery. Cheers, Steve August. For more information please visit http://backpod.co.nz

Achilles tendonitis is a term that is somewhat misleading, because with Achilles tendon pain, there is frequently no inflammation of the Achilles tendon. Most attempts to fix Achilles tendon pain involve treatment directly to the Achilles tendon. But treating the Achilles tendon usually does not fix the problem, because there is often nothing wrong with the Achilles tendon. The Achilles pain is just a symptom. In fact, medical researches don't even call it tendonitis anymore -- it's called a tendinopathy -- which means "it hurts, but we really don't know what's wrong."

Tennis elbow (or lateral epicondylitis) is pain on the outside of your elbow where the forearm muscles join onto the elbow. It can cause pain with gripping activities, typing or carrying. Ellie, a remedial massage and sports therapist at myPhysioSA in North Adelaide, explains what tennis elbow is, its causes and then the best advice on how to effectively self massage the elbow and forearm muscles. Ellie will teach you how to do four different massage techniques that you can use to relieve your tennis elbow pain. These include: myofascial release (twisting, rolling and squeezing), trigger point therapy, and cross friction fiber massage. Tennis elbow is usually an overuse problem. Over a prolonged period the stress on the elbow and its extensor tendons builds up until symptoms appear. Tennis elbow can take many months to settle even with treatment and the right exercises. Cortisone injections usually only give some temporary relief. See our other videos on the best tennis elbow exercises to do. http://www.myphysiosa.com.au

A common after effect of surgery may involve a poorly understood effect similar to phantom limb pain that vets would experience. I am 63 and having completed a staged bilateral TKA within a four week period I find that the most recent knee operated on insists on waking me up at night. For me, pain meds were only partially effective in easing the discomfort of the nightime 'phantom' pains. These pains seemed to arise simply from contact with the bed sheet or sometimes arise from my mind just anticipating pain. Here is what worked great for me. Since my incision was well healed I applied some hand creame over the knee area and wrapped with the clear food service plastic film. This made for a smooth surface that did not seem to generate nerve stimuli for the brain to misinterpret as aches, sharp pains, dull pains, bone pains, etc. If your incision has not fully healed I personally would completely wrap the knee once with a standard white kitchen paper towel and then apply the food service film over that. The paper towel contains the natural ingredient 'Lignin' from pulp which is somewhat antibacterial. If you have a lot of nighttime pain try making a compress with a cloth towel soaked in hot water. Sprinkle on some epsom salt if you have it. Lay towel on the leg and then wrap with a plastic garbage bag or similar to keep the towel in place and prevent leakage to your bed. The epsom salts contains magnesium which typically has a relaxing effect on muscles, etc. With my left TKA at four weeks post op, the plastic bag has been essential but I still had spontaneous nite aches in my leg muscles. A Physical Therapist specialist (Josh MIller with Body Structure Med. Ctr.) suggested doing the following: "Take a suitable elastic band (e.g.theraband, etc) and tie the ends to form a loop. Lay the loop down as a linear form. Grab each end and place around the TKA joint with one side of the band above the back of the knee joint and the other below. Fasten the two ends to an immovable anchor post at the same hgt. as your knee. Facing the anchor post and with the band pressing above and below the BACK of the knee (this is so you are not putting pressure directly on the center of the joint itself) move your leg back until you feel medium tension from the elastic band. Now raise up on your toes on the leg...increase the tension a little and then push the heel down to the floor. Do this about 25 times. I felt an immediate muscle/fascia release. My random muscle pain at night left for good. This really worked great for me. I am 3 months post op on my right knee and everything seems to be pretty much normal. I did encounter a period of time in which I had a different kind of night time pain. I determined that this was pain from a wave of muscle spasms that began just about anywhere on my entire right leg. The spasms mainly involved the Illio tibial band of muscles. I discovered by accident that if I strapped on that cast like contraption that I was sent home with the spasms stopped. That made for uncomfortable sleeping. A visit to my surgeon brought about a better solution. He prescribed CYCLOBENZAPRINE 10mg three times a day for the spasms. I got relief the first day. He also prescribed TENAZEPAM 30 mg at night for sleep. (none of the other meds could give me sleep). That worked great. UPDATE: (I just did an extensive update and it disappeared into cyberspace.) Here is the shortened version. WHAT WORKED BEST FOR ME (better than tenazepam): CVS "ice bag" , 3qt capacity, About $13USD incld tax. Put about 1-1.5qts water into bag, then pour in one or two tablespoons of salt. Tip1-depress ice bag until water level reaches that of lid. Fasten lid tightly. Tip2-Press down firmly on ice bag for 1 min to test. Do on a smooth counter or paper towel (don't trust your sense of 'feel'). (Remember these are made in China...my first bag leaked all over my mattress about 2am...so not good. The leak was from a tiny puncture in the plastic bag from the manufacturing process most likely. Tip3- Place the bag on the knee for 20-30 minutes before bedtime or go to sleep with it if you want. (Don't get the bag too cold or you won't like that either) RESULT: My rogue nerve stimulii disappeared...finally. What a relief. I did look at bags at Wal-mart and didn't like any of them that I saw. The internet site for wal-mart shows a pack with a wrap to hold it in place but the store didn't have that. CVS had some other types as well such a pouch with 'little plastic peas' that gave it flexibility...looked pretty good but was a little smaller than the "ice pack". Either one should work fine. Now it's just a matter of strengthening muscles and working to increase flexion. I am now at 120 deg. flexion if I really bite my lip. I hope this info will help someone deal with pain. UPDATE: I am now at 128deg/135 deg flexion and 3,5 months post op on bilateral TKA. I will say more about that on another post.

There is a sort of mad disconnect between how costochondritis is understood and fixed in manual physiotherapy in New Zealand, and how it is not understood and not fixed in most other places in the world. Of course it’s not a mystery and of course it’s fixable. Most costochondritis is NOT a “mysterious inflammation” that nobody understands and which will settle down shortly. This standard medical view is NOT supported by the research evidence. The best evidence fully supports our New Zealand manual physiotherapy view that most costo is a straightforward rib joint locking problem, and as such is readily fixable. WHAT CAUSES ALMOST ALL COSTOCHONDRITIS: This is easy to follow. Think of your ribs like bucket handles, hinged at the front (onto the breastbone) and at the back (onto your backbone). The ribs lift up and down as you breathe, and also move as you twist and move around. Now, if the posterior rib joints (where the ribs hinge onto your spine) are frozen solid and not moving, then the more delicate joints where the ribs hinge onto your breastbone HAVE to work excessively, just to let you breathe. So they strain, get irritated, then get inflamed - and there’s your costochondritis. If they’re inflamed enough to produce obvious swelling then it’s called Tietze’s Syndrome. (The rib movement round the back can freeze up for a variety or reasons - strain, impact (including the percussive impact of much coughing), chronic asthma, scarring and strain after chest operations, scoliosis, and much hunching over computers and smartphones a.k.a. the iHunch.) This means that EVERY treatment, medical or non-medical, which is just trying to heal just this "mysterious inflammation" on the breastbone, misses the point. That's why they don't help much if at all, don't last, and don't fix the problem. PERSONAL HISTORY: I had costo myself for seven years after a climbing fall onto my rib cage - with all the sharp stabbing chest pain, the breathing difficulties and the fear I was having a heart attack that comes with it. I fixed it after coming through physio school in New Zealand, and haven’t had even a twinge in decades. I can do anything physical - it’s completely fixed. HOW YOU FIX MOST COSTOCHONDRITIS: This is perfectly logical - you free up the tight rib machinery around your back and sides which is causing the overuse strain and pain of the rib joints on your breastbone. This is quite quick and not difficult. How to do it is explained in more detail in our YouTube video ‘How to fix (most) costochondritis and Tietze’s Syndrome chest pain; Part (2)’ - link is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7ve6nNVdWc This sensible New Zealand approach is validated by the best evidence on fixing costo, from Zaruba and Wilson (2017) in the US - link is https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5455195/ By comparison, there has NEVER been a clinical trial to test whether anti-inflammatory medications or steroid shots into the rib joints on the breastbone actually help. OTHER TREATMENTS: Sure, medications or topical CBD cream such as Penetrex may help suppress the pain a bit, plus a healthier diet may help your body cope better. But they still miss the CAUSE of the problem and therefore cannot fix it. Anyway, you know this - most people with costo also have some pain and tightness round the back where the ribs are immobile, but this gets disregarded because the overuse pain on the breastbone is much worse. MORE INFO: See the COSTOCHONDRITIS page on the Backpod's website - link is https://www.bodystance.co.nz/en/costochondritis/ The Backpod with its home program was developed to treat the iHunch, but it is important for costo because it will also do a really effective stretch on tight rib joints, and this is the irreducible core of fixing almost all costo. SERIOUS NOTE: Chest pain could be heart so emphatically get yourself checked out by a doctor first. Doctors are good at this - they're just not usually good at costo. But up to a half of patients presenting to a doctor or hospital Emergency Department with chest pain don’t have heart problems – so here’s the way to go if you’re one of them. Think for yourself and good luck with the work. Steve August (B.A.,Dip.Physio. (New Zealand)).

If you're struggling with achilles tendon pain, you'll want to check-out this achilles treatment you can perform easily at home or in the office. This achilles self massage technique uses transverse frictions of the achilles tendon to stimulate a healing response in the tendon tissue. ************************ SUBSCRIBE: https://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=RunningRevolution MUSIC: https://soundcloud.com/lakeyinspired CALF FOAM ROLLING TUTORIAL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98uo2EbNsb8 ACHILLES RESOURCES: http://www.kinetic-revolution.com/achilles/ ECCENTRIC HEEL DROPS: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWukGTFb9q4 ************************ In this video, I’m going to show you a simple and super-effective self massage technique for you to treat your achilles tendon pain. Today, I want to talk to you about achilles tendinopathy, often referred to as achilles tendinitis. If you’re currently suffering with achilles tendon pain, you’ve probably Googled the hell out of the term already, and found all sorts of resources, like the eccentric heel-drop protocol. I’ll leave a list of helpful resources in the description below this video. That’s why I’m not going make this video a definitive guide to achilles injuries, instead I want to focus on one simple technique you can use at home to encourage the healing process for your achilles. The soft tissue technique we’ll be using here is called deep friction massage, or frictioning. More accurately we could say we’re applying transverse friction the tendon, as you’ll be working perpendicularly to the direction of the tendon fibres. The aim here is to stimulate the bodies natural healing process in the affected area, by creating a little local disruption in the tissue. Find yourself a comfortable position to sit with your achilles region in hand and the ankle relaxed. Using your thumb and forefinger, feel up and down the achilles tendon, looking for tender areas. Once you find a painful area, keep your ankle relaxed and use a pincer grip with the tendon between your thumb and forefinger, to firmly massage back and forth at right angles to the direction of the tendon, rather like you’re delicately strumming a huge guitar string! You should aim to do this for 10-15 minutes every other day, while your achilles is giving you pain. Begin gently, then every 3 minutes or so, make the massage a little more firm. You will probably find that the achilles becomes a little less sensitive to the action after a few minutes, allowing you to work harder. Remember, the goal here is to provoke a healing response from your body, so you’ll need a firm approach to the friction technique. At worst though, the pressure you’re applying will feel strongly uncomfortable. It should be bearable. Try this for two weeks and see how your achilles responds, you should feel the benefits in this time frame. Of course, if you’re unsure about whether this type of technique would be suitable for your specific injury, be sure to ask your physio. Don’t forget to look after those calf muscles as well. The condition of these guys are very much linked to the strain the achilles has to deal with. ************************ TWITTER: https://twitter.com/kineticrev FACEBOOK: https://facebook.com/kineticrev INSTAGRAM: https://instagram.com/kineticrev ************************ ABOUT ME: I'm a runner, sports rehabilitation specialist and coach based in the UK (Norwich and London).
