Common Questions and Answers about Arm exercises chart


211940 tn?1267884866 About 1 year ago I began having pain in my right upper arm, between the shoulder and elbow, about mid arm where the biceps brachii muscle or brachialis muscle is. I went to my Primary Physician who said it was a torn brachialis muscle. Since I was working at a 2nd job, I thought it might be job related so I went through the whole Workman's Comp issue. They sent me to 4 doctors who did nothing for me, finally the case was settled and my lawyer got most of the money, but I still have the pain.
Avatar f tn I personally didn't feel it was accurate as it gave low readings. While it did that, I took my bp on the opposite arm (with the omron automatic bp kit) right after the bp was taken on my left arm. My readings were far different from the one from the dr's office. When I handed it back, I included my own readings. He determined I didn't need bp meds.
Avatar f tn Does she have permission from her doctor to exercise? Walking is always a good way to start. She will need to start slowly - walking short distances, maybe 2-3 times/day in order to build her strength; as her strength builds, she should be able to walk further/longer. She could also try simple "chair exercises" such as leg lifts, some arm exercises, etc. You can google a certain type of exercise and usually come up with quite a few.
1672915 tn?1335224198 I do have a chart with the exercises I was told to do in my profile my comments under the pic as to which ones I was told to do, not all were recommended for post op for chiari. U may be doing too much, I am 2 yrs post op, and not working nor driving....u r still healing and will up to 2 if u feel bad, do cut back what u do and how long u do it.
Avatar f tn The last one showed dark spots of Density, as well as, when I asked Why I have such excess tissue Under my Arm Pit, I was told that it was "Migrating Breast Tissue". Well, I have gained quite a lot of weight in the past year or so, and Now, Under My Arms is very Large, Elongated, Painful, and even goes around into my back and I am having Shoulder pain....
Avatar f tn You need to be evaluated for a cervical spine disc degeneration or prolapsed irritating the nerve roots and causing tingling , numbness and weakness in the arm and thumb. These neck, shoulder and arm symptoms are most likely due to compression of the nerve roots supplying these regions which originate from cervical and upper thoracic vertebral levels. Consult a neurologist for evaluation of your spine and an MRI spine would help in assessment of the structures in your back.
Avatar f tn u will see a chart in the pics for exercises to do post the info under the chart as not all on the chart were for those that had decompression. Sounds like u need help to get things done....
Avatar f tn Like how far you could lift your arm. I just can’t imagine that I am three months out and I can’t lift my arm maybe 3 inches. I am very discouraged and blame myself for having the surgery. Both my rotator cuff‘s are torn and the right one bothers me periodically but I’m left-handed so I thought I should have it done before I get too much older (I am 55 and have had lupus since I’ve been 18). Thank you in advance!
4286019 tn?1352220227 I was told it is to help keep the muscles from getting stiff and allowing scar tissue to form...I do have a chart in my profile...and not all of the exercises on the chart are for those with PFD surgery so do read the comments so u know which ones, but I know it did help me with how my neck feels .....
1041487 tn?1256331319 She only gets one to two passive ranges of motion exercises sessions per day, and she wears a hand and arm splint all day. However, in the past two weeks, she hasn't been wearing any splints at all. To top it all off, the CNAs – not the physical therapist – performs the PROM exercises on my mom, and places the splints on her left arm. The director of nurses doesn't want the CNA s to do this, but I guess the director of physical therapy has the final word.
620923 tn?1452919248 We can also bond over weight loss trials and tribulations as will still be a thread on Thursdays..... It seems no one was into the exercises for those with limitations.....but if neone is...u can post here about that too....
483733 tn?1326802046 For me the trackers are for me - so it does not matter how I use them as long as they make sense to me- for instance I do crunches and stretches and a few arm exercises every day - I put them on my weight tracker as Yoga and pilates- of course strictly speaking they arent either but I know what they mean and know when the block is missing what I have not done..... hope this makes sense.
Avatar m tn It is totally normal to have a difference in readings between the right and left arm. Your right arm is further from your heart so there will be a difference. The left arm will give you a slightly higher and more accurate reading. It sounds as though you have kind of worked yourself up a little bit, which is understandable when yourhealth is concerned.
Avatar f tn She has very, very muscular legs and when she is flexing them, they are rock hard, especially in the upper part. Her arm muscles aren't too bad either. When she was younger, she was a little underweight, and she was VERY active. Now she is a little bit lazy and she isn't as energetic. She eats tons and tons of fruit and vegetables and loves them, especially raw celery and broccoli and steamed brussel sprouts with a little sprinkle of salt on them.
1925822 tn?1333709217 here is a link to a pic of a chart, do read the comments below to see which ones to do, not all on the chart are for those post op with Chiari .... Scar tissue is when the scar heals with too much skin on top of the incision and it can block CSF from flowing just like the herniation did.It can also make the area tight that u do not have the range of motion u should.
992677 tn?1537672503 I start PT next Friday, so I am unsure the plan this go round! In the past, I have had a TENS unit on my back and shoulder to help with muscles and they taught me neck exercises to do to improve my range of motion. It was pretty much turning your head to this side and that side for a certain number of seconds. No weights. The second time, I did arm exercises to decompress "tight" nerves, but no pulling up. And it was very simple moves.
1946411 tn?1327168312 I want to spend however long I am comfortable with doing the exercises. I will do the exercises in the living room where I feel most relaxed. I want to do these exercises alone in my home where I feel safest. I know my nanna Marie is watching me if I need someone to turn to. I will only share this book with professionals helping me as they understand and have the knowledge to help me.
Avatar f tn read the comments under the pic to see which of the exercises I was told to do as not all on this chart are for the surgery we had.
Avatar f tn Im 34 years old and have unexplainable pain in my chest, arm and jaw. It all started about 2 years ago with a sharp pain about 5 inches down from my left collar bone, the next day i set up an app. with my doctor and she said it sounded like a P.E. (no PE) then i got sent to a cardiologist, he said i had SVT and put me on some meds. The meds didnt help and the next time it happened it was worse and the pain went down my left arm and my nose started bleeding.
Avatar m tn My pains started with a numbness of my left arm. Then went to a doctor, she said it might be MS and asked for a brain MR. I took two MRs with medicine (I guess with medicine it is colored so it makes the images more clear or sth like that) and without the medicine. My brain was healthy, so they did emg test and it was all good too. In the mean time the numbness became more like pain and muscle spasms and it was all my left side of the body.
Avatar n tn however the MD said never to do neck exercises against resistance--that I do remember. I don't recall what level of the C-spine; any medical records were not retained by me. I was seeking Treatment for hand/arm paraasthesia at the time; carpel tunnel was diagnosed, treated with wrist splint effectively. It was thought back body mechanics was the cause from biking, typing and delivering newspapers--the c-spinal stenosis was caught as a result of the carpel tunnel issue. Now I am 60 y.o.
797145 tn?1240691498 The last 3 months I have had more severe symtpoms, my left arm is so numb and tingly is is difficult to use at times, my left eye has had a sever twitch and pain for 3 months and lest my left leg has started the numbing, these all go along with SEVER neck and shoulder pain. I have 2 kids under 2 and work full time as well taking on 100% financial responsabilty for my family due to my husband starting his own buisness.
Avatar f tn I'm not sure which is worse pre or post surgery. The pain down my left arm is gone. Not to say I don't have pain on my left side but the original pain is gone. The pain in my upper back just at the base of my neck is still bad with any activity. I have a terrible pain in my right shoulder joint. it gets worse then I'm sitting up or standing for very long. To use my right arm is to ask for the pain to get worse. It is so bad my pain meds don't touch it.
147426 tn?1317269232 I just didn't want to be bothered AND it seemed embarassing to go to this person for pevic exercises. Besides, I had always done the Kegel exercises and was proud of the strength I had. Now when I try the Kegels nothing contracts, nothing moves. Sheeesh...
987762 tn?1331031553 Its not even obviously the thigh muscle but if it is, its just one part of it and its the outer edge, it even hurts just to touch it. I dont get it but it reminds me of what my arm felt like the first time i pulled the muscle off the bone. Again that pain seemed to be in a straight line and hurt with just the slightest usage, and my leg is doing the same thing.
Avatar f tn When I signed the release for records from the other doctor to send to the new one, I received a phone call from the new one this morning saying that the ECHO that my old doctor had done was missing from the records. The receptionist called and inquired and was told there was no such thing in my chart, when she called me and told me this, I CAME UNGLUED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There was absolutely no excuse for losing this record or it being misplaced!!!
230262 tn?1316649534 Your shoulder symptoms could be caused from so many different conditions that my response is merely a guess. When I had a rotator cuff tear lifting my arm upward or doing a sweeping motion caused extreme pain. It didn't feel like it was falling out of my socket. The shoulder was always "sore." The only was to know what may be going on with your shoulder is to have some imaging done. It does seems strange that both began hurting at the same time. This not not sound like an injury.
Avatar m tn Can I eat stuff to help ?products,exercises? something or are the doctors in left field here.It feels like I have the weird siatic nerve pain we've all felt except upper left side of back spanning out to spine,neck and jaw.Always those areas never anywhere else arm,shoulders fine ??
Avatar n tn or did you get lazy and figure there has to be a way for SOMEONE ELSE (A DOCTOR OR SURGEON) to fix you? do the exercises 3x per day. stand up straight ALL THE TIME. sit up straight. Dont hunch. If you follw this regimen you'll feel better soon. It took me 4 months, but now my mid back pain is gone (unless I hunch at the computer for a few hours).
Avatar n tn I have some pain in my shoulers blades, across my collar bone and down my arm, numbness in my hand that is creeping up my arm - but nothing I can't live with....My ONLY reason for undergoing this surgery is that it will STOP the surges of CSF pressure in my head....My neuro doc says it will - that this has been my problem all along.....the neurosurgeon is skeptical.....What I don't want is what you all seem to be suffering.....WORSE symptoms and pain AFTER surgery.....
