    Tendonitis
    Description

    Tendons are bands of tissue that connect muscles to bones. They slide forwardly and rearwardly during the contraction of the muscles and joint flexion. To minimize friction and keep the tendons in place, they are kept in special sheaths that are lubricated. When a problem arises and the tendon can no longer move freely, resulting in stiffness and pain.

    When tendons are damaged and inflamed, it is a condition called tendonitis. If the disorder depends on the lining of the tendon sheath, then it is a tenosynovitis.
    Causes

    The most common causes of tendonitis are excessive strain, overuse, injury, repetitive movements or sudden movements unusual. Tendinitis is most common in middle-aged and elderly people in because their tendons have been hundreds of microscopic tears caused by wear and tear over the years and they have lost their elasticity.

    Some diseases can also cause tendonitis, including rheumatoid arthritis, gout, Reiter's syndrome, lupus and diabetes. Sometimes, people who suffer from gout have a deposit of uric acid crystals in the tendon sheath, causing friction and tearing. A high concentration of cholesterol in the blood may also be connected to this disorder. The use of in the quinolone class (eg. Ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, moxifloxacin) * may increase the risk of tendon rupture.

    Some common types of tendonitis:

    Tendonitis of the rotator cuff key tennis players, swimmers and those who often raise the arms above the head in a forward motion. As a result of friction several tendons in the shoulder, which can lead to inflammation and, if the problem worsens without being treated, the erosion of tendons. The tendons of the rotator cuff hold the arm in the shoulder.

    Achilles tendinitis affects the strongest tendon in the body that connects the heel to the muscles of the leg. It is usually caused by running uphill or downhill, jumps and sports that require sudden starts and stops. Wearing shoes with a heel soft or very stiff soles can also cause this kind of problem, especially in people prone to sprains. Achilles tendinitis requires special care because it undergoes extensive tendon force exerted by the body. Precaution is especially necessary if the inflammation is caused by quinolone antibiotics mentioned above.

    Flexor tenosynovitis of the finger (trigger finger) can affect people who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis or diabetes. A protrusion or thickening of the tendon sheath locks the finger curved position.

    De Quervain's tenosynovitis attacks the tendon sheath that extends above the wrist to the thumb. Its most common causes are excessive torque wrist or other repetitive movements. In some cases, rheumatoid arthritis can be involved.

    The tennis player's elbow or tennis elbow in medical terms, is characterized by the onset of inflammation at the site of insertion of the tendon. We know that tennis is not the only activity causing epicondylitis.

    Symptoms and Complications

    The main symptom of most types of tendonitis is pain. Certain positions and certain movements can cause more pain, and it is sometimes possible to feel a lack of uniformity in the movements of the affected muscle. Sometimes the tendon sheath fills with fluid and becomes inflamed. It can also cause dry and obvious friction during movement. In severe cases, the tendon can tear, causing pain more acute swelling and possibly a change in function of muscles and joints involved.

    Serious complications of tendonitis and tenosynovitis include the contraction (or hardening) of the tendon, scarring (called adhesions), muscle loss and disability. The shoulder is the joint most vulnerable because it may freeze or crash after tendonitis. The latter can cause a "frozen shoulder" when adhesions (scarring) limit the mobility of the joint and cause pain when stretching. In general, people do not notice the difference. Can prevent contractions and adhesions maintaining flexibility and mobility of joints inflamed, and this in all their amplitude. In severe cases, the rotator cuff (the tendons that hold the arm bone in the shoulder) can rupture and cause weakness and prolonged pain.

    How much do reality TV stars earn?

    Whether we like it or not, the reality show to stay. E. With all the drama, and sometimes the script multiple stories fat salaries for the people who star in them comes So how much do reality stars earn?

    One of the greatest TV show American Idol Fox. After a summer full salary disputes, a former judge Paula Abdul left the show recently (she earned $ 4 million per year and asked her double salary). But according to insiders, American Idol Simon Cowell makes a whopping $ 36 million per year. Last summer, ABC News reported that American Idol host Ryan Seacrest is the highest paid reality show star. Seacrest reportedly signed a $ 45 million, three-year contract. Seacrest deserves, indeed, he is the moderator worker, like Dick Clark.

    Do more on MTV in the mountains, mid-20s launched mass much in return for the parties and for the other. By DailyBeast.com rookie hills is 22 years old, Kristin Cavallari earning $ 90,000 per episode. His predecessor, Lauren Conrad, $ 2.5 million per year.

    Coadjuvants Hills Audrina Patridge, Lo Bosworth and Heidi Montag reported $ 100,000 each per episode. This is a serious currency act stupidly. Thursday husband Spencer Pratt in, earning $ 65,000 per episode and second banana Brody Jenner earns only $ 45,000 per episode.

    On MSNBC.com, people in the CBS show Big Brother reality summer, receive a weekly stipend of $ 750 for each EEK they stay in the Big Brother house, or house, kidnap. The top prize in Big Brother is $ 500,000 and the $ 50,000 runner-up and winner of the Audience Choice Award, worth £ 25,000. Additionally, smaller prizes are given cash for the entire season (during the 11th season, the money literally fell from the sky in a competition).

    Dancing with the Stars fan site, dwts.org participants reported that celebrities receive a base salary of $ 125,000 for the season of the show, the extra bonus for each week remaining in the show (up bonus of U.S. $ 10,000 to U.S. $ 20,000 to $ 50,000 for weeks). Winner receives an additional $ 100,000. And a lot of practice, too.

    Does African mango Work
    African mango, does it work?

    African mango is being touted as one of the latest weight loss miracle supplement but the question remains does it really work to affect weight loss.  Since appearing on Doctor Oz.'s TV show sales and internet queries of African mango has sky rocketed. African mango can assist in weight loss but not as a miracle fat loss pill to counter act anything you might eat.  It will work as an excellent appetite suppressor and energy stimulant and with diet and exercise will assist in weight loss.

    Clinical Studies.

    • Methods: The study participants comprised of 102 healthy, overweight and/or obese volunteers (defined as BMI > 25 kg/m2) were randomly divided into two groups. The groups received on a daily basis, either 150 mg of IGOB131 or matching placebo in a double blinded fashion, 30–60 minutes before lunch and dinner. At baseline, 4, 8 and 10 weeks of the study, subjects were evaluated for changes in anthropometrics and metabolic parameters to include fasting lipids, blood glucose,
      C-reactive protein, adiponectin, and leptin.
    • Results: Significant improvements in body weight, body fat, and waist circumference as well as plasma total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, blood glucose, C-reactive protein, adiponectin and leptin levels were observed in the IGOB131 group compared with the placebo group.
    • Conclusion: Irvingia Gabonensis administered 150 mg twice daily before meals to overweight and/or obese human volunteers favorably impacts body weight and a variety of parameters characteristic of the metabolic syndrome. This is the first double blind randomized placebo controlled clinical trial regarding the anti-obesity and lipid profile modulating effects of an Irvingia Gabonensis extract. The positive clinical results, together with our previously published mechanisms of gene expression modulation related to key metabolic pathways in lipid metabolism, provide impetus for much larger clinical studies. Irvingia Gabonensis extract may prove to be a useful tool in dealing with the emerging global epidemics of obesity, hyperlipidemia, insulin resistance, and their co-morbid conditions.
    African mango does work if taken 3 times daily before meals with diet and exercise.  Don't expect to lose weight with just taking African mango with altering your diet.  As with all other weight loss programs you have to burn more calories than you consume.  African mango will assist with the consuming part.
