Do you find yourself digging your fingers in around your jaw? Perhaps you wake with stiffness in the jaw, suffer from headaches, ear pain or even the feeling of an itchy, irritated throat? Yep, all of these and other symptoms can fall under the term commonly referred to as TMJ or TMD. So what does all of that mean, and more importantly, what can be done to relieve this pain?
Physiotherapist & Director of Evado Studios Nelson Bay, James Alexander, shares his research on the impact of running on knee osteoarthritis.
I have been training to complete the 10km run at the Melbourne marathon and have started to experience Achilles pain during my runs. It has been going on for 8 weeks now and isn’t settling. I experience it at the start of my run but goes away about 1km in but is worse about an hour after I stop. It is also quite sore first thing in the morning when I get out of bed. Nothing I do seems to help to reduce the pain when I go back to running. What can I do to manage this pain?
