Patient discussion about stand

Q. What does the concept of fitness stands for?

A. Dagmar said it well.

Q. Sometimes I can barely stand or sit. Is walking on treadmill something that can benefit? Can someone post back strengthening exercises they have used for muscle fitness while trying to relieve muscle tightness. I suffered a back muscle problem a few months back and I haven't quite been able to heal properly. It seems to me that my back muscles tighten up a lot and even cramp up. Sometimes I feel like my lower back is going to split in half from the upper back. Sometimes I can barely stand or sit. Is walking on treadmill something that can benefit?

A. muscles need to be strong and long. if it won't happen- many problems can occur. this is why it's important to maintain in physical shape and do stretches. Yoga lessons can be very helpful for you- it's purpose is to help your muscles be long and strong. about the lower back, lay on your stomach while your head is out side of the bed and this will help you stretch your back muscles.

Q. I absolutely hate hospitals and doctors offices and can't stand them. any advice? I was very accident prone growing up so i have a lot of bad memories from the hospital and doctors offices that affect me today. Every time i get hurt or sick i refuse to go to get checked out and recently i did something to my wrist i was worried that i did something bad to it but i still wouldn't go. I'm better now but i need to get over my fears so i can handle these visits to the doctors or I'm worried something bad could happen in the future. Does anyone have any advice on what i should do?

A. this fear surly comes from places you know about. this is a first step! congratulations :).
now you have to figure what to do with them- that a very good situation to be in. all you have to do is choose how you want to overcome your fears. my advise to you is getting a psychologist that specialized in phobias. he can direct you to the next step much better then anyone else. you can also try Biofeedback, a treatment that helps you control your body reactions-
but i would let the psychologist recommend me a kind of therapy..
good luck!
