1938385 tn?1332068714 Maybe do a google search on this one? I still sit on mine a lot, not an official exercise but stabilizing yourself on your ball is still good for your core. Easier on my back than chairs too.
Avatar f tn Sit on the ball with your feet flat on the floor. Slowly crunch to your left side 10 to 15 times. Repeat the motion on the right side. Work up to two to three sets of this movement. Aim to tone the abs at least two times a week. Leave a day in between muscles strengthening sessions to allow abdominal muscles to rest. The pelvic tilt is another exercise that strengthens the love handle area. Lie flat on the floor with your knees bent a little.

Avatar f tn can anyone suggest some simple daily exercises without a workout ball that I could do to help relieve some of these aches and pains?!
Avatar f tn Bounce on an exercise ball. I would sit on it while watching tv instead of the couch. I really think it helped.
Panda Now my left knee is starting to act up due to knee effusion. Since I am older (33 yrs old), my joints, especially my knees, take the worst beating. I have gained almost 40 lbs since I have been sober (2 and a half years now). I know that the pain and suffering in my knees is due to the fact that I am heavier, so I am trying to drop weight .
Avatar f tn I know all the ways to induce labor just looking for ways to go ahead and start dilating and soften my cervix plus strengthen my legs for pushing time lol!!
Avatar f tn carry a tennis ball with you. Any time that nerve flares sit directly on the tennis ball where the pain is for a minute or two. The pressure and pain will be temporarily relieved. Follow up with hamstring exercise and stretching. Hope that helps.
Avatar f tn Exercises that target the back include the lumbar extension, which involves laying prone on the floor or a ball, and lifting your head and shoulders by using your back muscles. You can have your hands on the floor or ball for support, but don't use them to push. Bird-dog is another effective back exercise. On all-fours on the floor, extend one leg back and the opposite arm forward. Engage the abs by pulling them up toward your spine.
1936411 tn?1333831849 For balance, my PT has me sit in a corner on an exercise ball. He sits in front of me to catch me, then I roll the ball out, put my feet together, hands on knees and close my eyes. we also do a similar thing standing on a piece of foam. Just make sure someone is with you!! I can give you other exercises for leg weakness if you want them. If you think you would benefit from PT, then I would push the neuro.
Avatar f tn I do Shannon Dougherty prenatal work out series. It's on the All Fitness app on my roku, free. Might be on you tube. It's great!!

7892775 tn?1395673991 I was on the ball about two days non stop to help with the same pains. However I think with all the friction of the exercises I developed a skin tag down there so I stopped to see if it would go away!. Still waiting...
Avatar n tn About two years ago I was diagnosed with patellar tendonitis as a result of running to much too soon. Now I am trying to get back into walking and running, I've started walking on a treadmill 4 miles a day (no running) and at the same time trying to stretch and strengthen my quads. I do wall squats and I push it, but don't bend the knee too much. The activity aggrivates the condition. My knee feels week, but no pain.
1070610 tn?1279274410 So I guess from what your saying ,it definatly sounds like spasticity as opposed to damaged muscle or strain??? If it was a strain it should have gotten better by now. Kibha it could be the sartorius muscle as I can't look at the ball of my foot but it also pulls and hurts on the outside of the knee.??
Avatar n tn Stretching the front and back or your leg to increase the flexibility in your knee. Perform stretching exercises at the end of your workout when your muscles are warm. Stretch the front of your leg in a standing position by bending your knee and raising your foot up toward your backside. Grasp the ankle with your hand to enhance the stretch. Stretch the back of your legs in a seated position with your legs extended on the floor. Fold forward over your straight legs to stretch your hamstrings.
Avatar f tn I uwe'd mine for the last few weeks before going into labor, I ended up having him 4 days before due date. I'm not sure of it helped bring labor on or not, and I didn't use it once in labor. I feel like it's a wonderful thing to do instead of lounging on the couch or in a computer chair. Puts your pelvis in the right spot so baby can engage your cervix, and let's baby get in a great position, helping to keep baby out of breech.
360318 tn?1340393363 The general rule for choosing the correct exercise ball size for core (abs/low back) exercises is to have your knees and hips bent to 90 degrees (thighs parallel to floor) when sitting on the ball. This is the minimum ball size--some people prefer a larger ball, where hips are higher than knees. Don't go by photos of models sitting on balls. Typically they sit on a ball much larger than they would train on as it photographs better.
Avatar f tn Hey ladies. Have any of you started using the birthing ball and drinking the raspberry tea etc? If so, when did you start?
Avatar m tn after several games he gets so incoherent that he just kneels down on the court while the game is in process. While on the court; it seems as if he is in slow motion and he looks like a person who might be on drugs. Note: He does not do drugs and will not take the many prescribed narcotics such as perococets(sp) oxycodone, hydrocodone and many others, because of the way he said they made him feel; so he would refrain from taking them.
