A high ankle sprain is stretching of the ligament in front of the ankle which holds our two leg bones- fibula and tibia together above our ankle joint. High ankle sprain is caused by rolling over the front of our foot (toes in the ground) this places more pressure on the front of our ankle, unlike the usual lateral ankle sprain where we roll on the outside of our ankle.
The Jaw is a bi-arthrodial hinge joint located below your temples on either side of your head. This joint can become dysfunctional due to overuse such as excessive chewing, teeth grinding, blunt trauma or overstretching such as that in dental procedures.
Joint movement is achieved by muscle contraction. However, what happens when this well-orchestrated biomechanical machine lacks synchronisation? The answer? Lower cross syndrome.
Scheuermann’s disease (otherwise known as Scheuermann’s Kyphosis) is not as scary as it may sound, and it should not be mistaken for a disease you can catch like the common cold or the flu.
What Is It?
Scheuermann’s is a spine defect where three or more consecutive upper back segments present with 5 degrees or more of anterior (front) wedging- this makes the person seem more hunched. Scheuermann’s disease is a common condition seen in young adults (12-16-year old’s) and is usually disregarded as poor posture. Unlike lazier counterparts, those diagnosed with Scheuermann’s disease are unable to completely correct their slouch, which results in their body compensating for this through their lower back and neck.
