Avatar m tn I am in Western Michigan and there is really nothing here. I do have University of Michigan in Ann Arbor or Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit.

Avatar f tn The diagnosis of HP rather than UIP was determined by a team of patholigist and pulmonary specialist at the University of Michigan. My primary pulmonary doctor dismissed their diagnosis and said he felt I had UIP. My primary pulmonary doctor has been out of college about 3 years and was trained by the doctors who evaluated my case and he referred me to them, but refuses to accept their diagnosis.
Avatar m tn ‘While our intent was to show a film, the impact of the content was harmful, and made students feel unsafe and unwelcome at our program’ A scheduled movie screening of “American Sniper” at the University of Michigan was abruptly cancelled Tuesday after nearly 300 students and others complained the film perpetuates “negative and misleading stereotypes” against Muslims.

What’s more, Auburn University scientists found that people who squat long-term have tighter, stronger knee ligaments than those who don’t squat at all. The alternatives: Free weight squats, split squats, and lunges—performed with perfect form—are all better choices for working your quads and protecting your knees.
Avatar n tn Dear Dr., My question may or may not belong here but it was my only option and perhaps you can help. I'm a 34 year old female w/ a dual chamber pacemaker due to sinus node dysfunction (implanted 11/07) and have been suffering from refractory hypertension despite seeing a Hypertension Specialist at the University of Michigan. I've had the entire work up for secondary hypertension and nothing has been found thus far.
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 m tn something that physically prevents the knee from fully straightening out or bending and holds the knee rigidly in place. It's often painful, and since it can occur while climbing stairs, sitting on the ground, or being in some other vulnerable position, it can be quite frightening. Usually, the locking is caused by a torn piece of cartilage, or possibly a loose bone fragment resulting from a bone disorder called osteochondritis dissecans.
Avatar m tn NOW i have shown this to a number of specialist but they all have told to do exercises and it will go. i did not take it seriously earlier but now its getting worse and my knee has swolen badly. its never been painful but now it feels like i am carrying a bag of fluid with me when i walk. also having problems walking and climbing stairs. what shall i do. have tried pain killers and voltarol(diclofenac) cream.. but nothing has helped.
Avatar f tn Both are recommended by the Arthritis Foundation as effective range-of-motion exercises, and both focus on slow, controlled movements. Yoga postures have variations to accommodate injuries or varying skill levels, and tai chi has been shown to reduce pain and impairment in people with knee problems. It is important to learn from a professional though, as injury can result from improper form.
Avatar f tn Hello everyone! I will be quick w/ my story. 2001-pressure headaches that put me in the hospital w/ MS symptoms. Neuros just gave me meds. 1 doc said I had a stroke, 1 doc diagnosed "Complicated Migraines". 2009 started taking 800mg/ IB 3x/day because I didn't feel "well". Oct. 2011 went in for eyeglasses, Opthmologist said something "didn't look right." after a 2nd look at another Eye Doc, same thing. He referred me to a Neuro.
Avatar m tn But there are other high quality centers including the Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota, the University of Michigan Medical Center at Ann Arbor, Michigan, and National Jewish Health (formerly National Jewish Medical and Research Center) in Denver, Colorado (disclaimer, I am a member of the Medical Staff at this institution).
Avatar f tn t do any cardio that is too taxing on my knee; is there any exercises that have high fat burning principals other than swimming? (I dont have the avilability of swimming where i live).
Avatar f tn I too have patella femoral pain. I had a lot of physical therapy and most of the exercises made the pain worse. I now get my best and longest relief from my chiropractor. (Yes he treats my knee) Do you have chiropractors in Italy if so, see if you can find one that can treat knees.
Avatar m tn I had swelling on and off for months, and the knee still swells a bit sometimes, but I had full ROM and use of the knee within weeks of the surgery (before I could barely walk and could not put any weight on my knee, like kneeling on a car seat to reach something).
Avatar f tn I just had another type of MRI and another appointment with a neurosurgeon at University of Michigan. It sounds like I am going to get somewhere. I advise you to go to a neurosurgeon and get a MRI of the Brain and Spine to rule out these things. Also, go the Chiari Forum and search more about Chiari.

Avatar f tn Bend both of your knees until your front thigh is about parallel to the floor and your back knee is almost touching the floor. Return to the standing position and repeat until you’ve performed an equal number of repetitions with both legs. You also can perform this exercise with a forward stepping motion.

Avatar m tn I was putting in padded flooring in my home gym for about 4 hours. Since then I've had pain in my right knee only when kneeling on my right knee (like when tying shoes). It's to the side of the knee and feels like something is being stretched laterally at first, before I get a sharp pain that feels like it's stinging/tingly. It is not completely on the side of my knee, but in the softer area to the side of my knee cap.
Avatar n tn So would I have any benefit of doing exercises in this state WITHOUT GLASSES. In my opinion not cause all exercises are done in close so ciliary muscle would be constricted to maximum power.(WITH MINUS GLASSES ON EVEN BEYOND ITS EXTREMES) Maybe only change of focus looking at finger and distance may have some usefulness.
