Bursa’s helps to cushion bones, tendons, and muscles that are close to joints. A bursa is a small fluid-filled sac, lined by a synovial membrane with an inner capillary layer of viscous synovial fluid. Bursitis, as the name suggests, is an inflammation of this sac. Bursitis is known to be a very painful condition.
The most common parts of the body affected by bursitis include the shoulders, elbow, and hips. However, bursitis can also be found in some other parts of the body such as knee, heel, thumb, and the ischial tuberosity
Sciatica is a medical condition characterised by pain going down the leg from the lower back. This pain may go down the back, outside, or front of the leg. Onset is often sudden following activities like heavy lifting, though gradual onset may also occur. Typically, symptoms are only on one side of the body. Certain causes, however, may result in pain on both sides. Lower back pain is sometimes but not always present. Weakness or numbness may occur in various parts of the affected leg and foot.
Good morning and welcome to a new week. I thought I might share this little video and wish you the best for the week.
Myofascial trigger points, also known as trigger points, are described as hyperirritable spots in the fascia surrounding skeletal muscle. The trigger point model states that unexplained pain frequently radiates from these points of local tenderness to broader areas, sometimes distant from the trigger point itself. They are associated with palpable nodules in taut bands of muscle fibers.
The iliopsoas refers to the joined psoas and the iliacus muscles. The two muscles are separate in the abdomen, but usually merge in the thigh. As such, they are usually given the common name iliopsoas. The iliopsoas muscle joins to the femur at the lesser trochanter, and acts as the strongest flexor of the hip.
The iliopsoas muscle is supplied by the lumbar spinal nerves L1-3 (psoas) and parts of the femoral nerve (iliacus).
Rounded shoulders are an unnatural posture characterized by an exaggerated curvature of the upper back, often a forward positioning of the head where the shoulder girdle is protracted, and a thoracic kyphosis.

The erector spinae is not just one muscle, but a bundle of muscles and tendons which run more or less vertically and are paired left to right. These muscles lie in the groove to the side of the vertebral column and extend throughout the lumbar, thoracic, and cervical regions
If the erector spinae muscle is too tight or contains tender or trigger points it may limit certain movements or make them highly unpleasant.
