You depend on your gut microbiome for good physical health. Those legions of bacteria, yeasts, and fungi living in your digestive tract process food for you, supplying you with energy and nutrients. Now new research suggests those microscopic creatures can have a dramatic impact on your mental health as well.
Vous vous souvenez surement des blessures à l’épaule des joueurs de tennis Kylian Mbappe et Jo-Wielfried Tsonga ? Le problème que notre physiothérapeute sportif, Troy Dopson, voit dans le sport est que, à moins que votre omoplate ne soit très stable en raison de bonnes connexions musculaires, vous allez avoir des blessures à l’épaule de différents types: blessures de la coiffe des rotateurs (ensemble des tendons et muscles situé au niveau de l’articulation de l’épaule) ainsi que des tendinites du biceps voir même les dislocations.
Acupuncture therapy is an ancient healing and anti-aging practice of traditional Chinese medicine which involves the insertion of fine needles into the skin. It began to spread rapidly during the twentieth century in Western Europe and North America and has become a popular modality used to offset stress and the effects of aging.
In treating Hong Kong’s athletes, Troy Dopson has noticed that one of the most important things is to completely heal any minor injuries at the moment of occurrence. If we don’t do this, they accumulate and worsen over time – with scar tissue forming instead of proper healing. Also, the integral stability and full functioning of the shoulder joint is dependent on its muscular support.
A parasitic infection can be a serious, even life-threatening issue. A parasite is any organism that lives on or in another organism, feeding off its host to sustain itself. Parasites can sap energy and nutrients from the host, leaving behind waste products that are toxic, and sometimes deadly. Parasite symptoms, particularly for intestinal parasites, are broad and sometimes difficult to assess.
Parasites exist around around the world, but types of parasites vary by region. A parasite such as lung fluke may be more prevalent in Southeast Asia than in North America. With Parasites come parasitic diseases. They can range from relatively benign and innocuous, to irritating and uncomfortable, to fatal. These are some of those found here in Hong Kong.
