Exercise program kyphosis

Common Questions and Answers about Exercise program kyphosis


Avatar n tn I'm 17 weeks into an exercise program to recover from being pretty deconditioned. Starting out with 10 minute walks, and now I walk 30 minutes or go 20 minutes on my elliptical trainer every day. My resting heart rate has dropped from mid 80s to low 70s, and anxiety or mild exertion doesn't send my heart rate above 100 like it used to. But the last couple weeks, I've noticed that my heart rate has been going up more rapidly on the elliptical trainer.
Avatar n tn I have had extensive physiotherapy and followed a comprehensive home exercise program however i continue to have significant stiffness (less than 30degrees rotation) and limited extension.
Avatar m tn You are probably sitting too much and not getting adequate exercise. You need to start a walking program and consider yoga. Even if you don't have Celiac, eat a diet rich in vegetables, lean meat, and fruit. Decrease carb intake by avoiding processed foods. Some people report a lot of help from an alkaline diet. You can read about it on line.
Avatar f tn I need to find a moderate- intermediate exercise program while I'm pregnant. I'm nine weeks today. And I'm already showing... I'd really like to keep the weight gain healthy instead of excessive. If anyone knows where I can find a program like that let me know. Thank you!

[Particularly after 5 hrs, 12 hrs and a day] Q2 Whether the answer is same for all types of kyphosis [Scheuermann's kyphosis as well as kyphosis due to acquired conditions (such as compression fractures) Q3 Will corpses sweat [ sweat continuously ?
Avatar f tn I have been a member on MedHelp for awhile now with the Lyme Disease Community and I have recently been looking into cervical kyphosis. While i was receiving my diagnosis for Lyme, one of my MRI's had shown/demonstrated that i have lost all curvature in my neck and its actually starting to curve the wrong way. I never thought much of it, because the doctor didnt seem concerned at all. After my husband being diagnosed (recently) with cervical kyphosis.
516410 tn?1211556937 However, earlier this week, I was sent for x rays by my new doctor and she told me that I had a kyphosis of 75 degrees. I also have spinal arthritis and have been receiving epidural steroid injections once a month. She also told me that my vertabrae have three times the space that should be between them, and that my spine was rotating in my neck and that my head did not sit straight on my body. My question is what can be done to correct this or keep me from being in so much pain?
516410 tn?1211556937 I am 27 years old and have recently found out that my back pain of six years is caused by spinal arthritis and kyphosis of 75 degrees and bone spurs on my spine. I go back to my doctor in two weeks and I will find out how they are going to treat this. Currently, I am receiving epidural steroid injections in my spine and have been on Opana (oxymorphone) since Feburary.
Avatar m tn Hello. I am a 23 year old, 5'11" male. From a young age, I assumed I had some form of kyphosis due to the "hump" in my back. I had a scoliosis film (xray) done 2 years back, and the doctor reported that my thoracic spine degree angle doesn't indicate kyphosis. I ordered his dictation this week for another appointment I have coming up, and it indicates that I do have kyphosis.
Avatar f tn I think that use brings on the pain (aerobic exercise, floor and water). I am 67years old, normal weight. I have tried sleeping in different positions to no effect. Heat helps for a bit, as does ice. NSAIDs and codeine don't help. I try to stay active but the pain is intense and interfering with my routine. Is there something else I could do? Thank You!
Avatar f tn I used to do a similar style of circuit class but once I found out I was pregnant., my doctor said to stick to low-moderate intensity exercise particularly for the first trimester. To be honest I've been too tired to even think about doing those classes!
9697896 tn?1405357104 I had a cervical MRI done 2 years ago which indicated that I had "subtle kyphosis". This week, I had a repeat of the MRI and this time the report only mentions "straightening of the normal cervical lordosis". Does this mean that the kyphosis resolved itself, or it is just a difference in the report authors and which terms they use? Also, for what its worth, both reports note muscle spasms...which have apparently been ongoing for the last 2 years.

Avatar f tn As stated in the above post, do be sure and check with your doctor before beginning ANY type exercise program.
Monkey Absolutely! Any exercise where your heart rate rises over 100 will be beneficial. Try to keep you heart rate elevated for at least 30 minutes 3-5 times peer week. Please consult your physician if you have any chronic medical problems. You will find that by dropping your calories to under 1800 calories per day you will be more successful at your weight loss. For most people they need to walk 35 miles to lose 1 lb of fat--possibly shorter for bike riding but not by much.
Avatar n tn Ok, I assume the kyphosis of the thoracic spine is serious, since my Neurosurgeon is talking about both an anterior and a posterior surgery to deal with it. I'm scared to death about both the surgeries and the required rehab. I need some guidance here... I'm most interested in reacquiring bodily functions. I want to correct my wandering eye, and the fatigue caused by walking 40 feet. I can deal with the pain, but I need to be more functional.
Avatar n tn re over 20 or 30 it is more harmful than useful, as your backbone, bones and all this complicated system of muscles and tendons is already shaped and by forcing yourself to change your posture you strain muscles, exercise pressure on lumbar spine (at least in my case lumbar spine ached when I tried to keep "straight") and generally force your body into a position unnatural for it.
1436330 tn?1284666036 Hello, about one year ago I to did the iop. It was a great program the only bad thing for me was when I heard some of the stories I thought to myself "well I'm not that bad" although I didn't use while I was there 8 am to 5pm. When I got in the car I took one half of a hydrocodone when Before I was takin 3/4 a day, so I made it thu the program but a few months later I was up to 6 a day! Now a year later I hate it that I didn't try harder!
Avatar m tn Now, about 3 weeks into my new exercise program, I am starting to get palpitations during the day, while sitting at my computer. I also sometimes feel them when I'm starting a walk, however, it seems that once I warm up a bit, I don't feel them anymore. It actually seems like the only time lately I'm not feeling occasional palpitations is when I'm in the middle of a walk.
655875 tn?1295695107 I was wondering about the 10,000 steps exercise program, but I'm a little confused. I was watching Dr. Oz(however, I'm not a fan) talk to this lady aout the 10,000 steps program. He stated that the 10,000 steps needed to take place at least twice a week in the same day. This sounds interesting to me, but I physically can not take the 10,000 steps without going into unbearable pain if it is done all at once.
1251374 tn?1278633673 1) Mild cervial kyphosis. Minimal Anterolisthesis of C4 on C5, Mild retrolisthesis of C5 on C6. 2) Moderate degenerative changes at the C5 -C6 Level The doctor who agreed to do an x-ray on my back wants me to get a very expensive MRI that I can't afford, Can anyone tell me what the prognosis on these findings are? I know surgery is what usually is the course of treatment, but what causes this and is there anything I can do for the pain?
Avatar m tn Your feeling that your breathing has returned to baseline normal is important but should not alone, be relied upon to make the decision to return to your full exercise program. In addition, even should all the preceding be favorable, it would be wise to resume exercise with a low-level program and increase it over 1-2 weeks, in a stepwise fashion, every 2-3 days. If still unsure that all is well, check with your asthma doctor.
Avatar f tn Just wanted to update you guys on how my exercise program is going. I have been meeting with a personal trainer now for two months, twice a week for about 45 minutes. I have had NO major setbacks so far!!! She happens to also be a nurse, so I felt less anxious about working with her. She was unfamiliar with Dysautonomia, POTS, but researched it so that she would understand my condition(s). Needless to say, she was nervous about working with me and saw me (as I did) as fragile.
Avatar f tn Someone who is in shape can exercise vigorously, but somebody who has not been getting any real exercise will need to start out with an easier program. Somebody in between can work out at a moderate pace. Everybody should exercise a minimum of 3 days a week to make any gains at all, and it really takes at least four to see fast results. Once the heart is in shape and the body muscles are used to a light program you can step it up to something more moderate.
