Our body is not just a physical body but is also an energetic system and 7 Chakras are the major energy centers in our body through which energy is continuously exchanged and they regulate our physical, emotional, and spiritual balance. According to ancient yogic scriptures, our body has 114 chakras but 7 are the major ones. These main seven Chakras are not only associated with our physical well being but also connected to our emotional and mental health. And the nature of these chakras – these energy centers is similar to other forms of energy- primarily sound and light. That’s why various sounds, music, and chants along with colors are very helpful in balancing and healing chakras.
Based on the discoveries of Drs. Janet Travell and David Simons in which they found the causal relationship between chronic pain and its source, myofascial trigger point therapy is used to relieve muscular pain and dysfunction through applied pressure to trigger points of referred pain and through stretching exercises. These points are defined as localized areas in which the muscle and connective tissue are highly sensitive to pain when compressed. Pressure on these points can send referred pain to other specific parts of the body.
The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a cruciate ligament which is one of the four major ligaments of the human knee. In the quadruped stifle (analogous to the knee), based on its anatomical position, it is referred to as the cranial cruciate ligament.
The ACL originates from deep within the notch of the distal femur. Its proximal fibers fan out along the medial wall of the lateral femoral condyle. There are two bundles of the ACL—the anteromedial and the posterolateral, named according to where the bundles insert into the tibial plateau. The ACL attaches in front of the intercondyloid eminence of the tibia, being blended with the anterior horn of the lateral meniscus. These attachments allow it to resist anterior translation of the tibia, in relation to the femur.
The voice condition Spasmodic Dysphonia is defined as a momentary disruption of the voice caused by involuntary movements of one or more muscles of the larynx (or voice box). The term spasmodic dysphonia loosely means bad voice caused by spasms of the larynx. This description of the voice problem makes no assumptions about the cause.
