Achilles tendon rupture: the best exercises to prevent it

The Achilles tendon is one of the strongest in the human body and therefore needs a lot of stress before rupturing. An Achilles tendon rupture (total or massive Achilles tendon injury) occurs when the tendon is suddenly subjected to excessive stress or repeated untreated injury. It usually tears completely, and partial rupture rarely occurs. The injury usually occurs at the narrowest point of the tendon, two to six centimeters above the base of the heel bone, in the so-called 'waist' of the Achilles tendon. Occasionally, a Achilles tendon rupture occurs in the area where it inserts on the heel. read more

Ulnar tunnel (cubital) syndrome

Do the ring finger and little finger tingle? Is tingling present throughout the day? So-called cubital tunnel syndrome or ulnar groove syndrome often underlies these symptoms. Cubital tunnel syndrome occurs when a nerve in the arm is permanently compressed. Increased pressure on the sensitive ulnar nerve (nervus ulnaris) triggers the typical pain and sensory disturbances. If the ulnar nerve is compressed in the cubital tunnel, the fascial connective tissue is often stretched, and by loosening the tension in these structures, the "pinched" nerve gets more space again. Many people do not think about this until they notice a significant loss of strength in their hands. But it is necessary to see your doctor or specialist if these symptoms are present. Starting treatment right away to prevent further damage, with targeted exercises, can quickly improve the situation and ensure that symptoms are kept under control. read more
