Obesity Muscle Tissue Strain
I have "compartment syndrome of thigh muscles" . How do I find a specialist for treating it.Also for "greater trochanteric synd injuries involved ankles, knees, hips, with strain to soft tissues of both legs which was followed by upper and lower swellin
The definition started with Louis Israel Dublin, chief statistician of the Metropolitan life insurance company, in the early 1940s, as a BMI >25 (definitely >30) for people in their 20's based on retrospective observational life insurance data of the age at which people died later in life. This was subsequently adopted by the medical disease industry. However, BMI is ...Read more
Obese bones: I have been surprised by the muscles in the obese. There seems to be a point where an obese person has bigger muscles than their counterpart-likely due to the increase weight they are carrying around everywhere they go, 24 hours a day. That is, until their activity level slows down. I once took care of a football player, who was pure muscle, but got injured, and weight shot up 100lbs in 1 year. ...Read more
Leg muscles jellified & gave up on me 5 mins into workout...also bad chest...is it because I'm very obese & not used to exercise?
It very well could: be related to significant physical deconditioning and exercise intolerance .... severe obesity wouldn't be helping either. I assume you mean chest "pain" or "discomfort" as that was cut off. It would be uncommon at 19 even with severe obesity to have obstructive heart disease that you most commonly worry about with those symptoms. Nonetheless, you should still review this with your doc. ...Read more
Friction: In an obese person, skin to skin friction at innet thighs while walking, exercising etc., can cause local irritation which weakens skin barriers and lead to local infection ...Read more
My trainer said, that people who used to be obese, then lost their weight, will notice having larger than average leg muscles, compared to others.?
Yes if they r active: I have been suprize by how mascular is the legs of obese people are, this likely due to the extra weight that they have to carry around 24/7. This of course is until their movement and activity start to slow down, at then you will probably start seeing atrophy and loss of this mascular bulk. ...Read more
Could a fatty liver from being obese that is borderline enlarged cause muscles and ribs to be sore in the kidney area I have lost 52 lbs?
If muscles are made up of protein, eating a diet rich in protein can help in recovering faster in strains/pulls/minor tear.Especially cremaster muscle?
Muscle Health: Yes. Of course. Also using muscles by moving or exercising; stretching out when strenuously using muscles.... Sleeping well. So lots of good reasons to health. Now specifically you seem to be having pain much longer than any other man i know with a minor scrotal or cremaster muscle injury. If you have not gotten to the doctor monday is coming and perhaps it is time. ...Read more
Groin/pubic pain cause by muscle strain lifting too heavy, repeated strain doing squats incorrectly. After #1 are muscles more prone to strain easier?
I severely strained my calf muscles. My shin hurts and I didn't hit it. Is it normal for your shin to hurt with a severe calf muscle strain?
Normal it is not!!: I am sure you must injured the shin, when you fell or whichever way you injured your calf. Our brains register only the worst injured (or more painful) part first, while the lesser injured part still hurts or becomes obvious later. Your examining Doc can certainly reassure you that you most likely injured the shin as well. Check with him/her. Good Luck! ...Read more
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes. They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more
The body is composed of tissue that are classically described as beiing derived from three basic embyonic layers known as the endoderm, mesoderm and ectoderm that then differentiate into the structures that compose the body such as skin, soft tissues, bone, muscle, organs, etc. Stem cells are not differentiated and have the potential to ...Read more
