Article: Non-Cosmic Overloads


You don’t do weight-lifting or pole-vaulting, and you are certainly not holding skies on your shoulders like the Atlas… Nevertheless, your spine and joints feel as if these are your favorite pastimes? No wonder: even the most calm and passive day subjects our musculoskeletal system to extensive loads. 

Serious tension on different groups of muscles during the day is born even by housewives, white-collar workers and many others with measured, sedentary life-style. But unlike athletic loads, it neither improves stamina, nor strengthens muscles, but rather leads to osteochondrosis, discomfort and general derogation of the quality of life.


Who’s to Blame? 

stat enjoy nekos1Slowly turn your head to the right, to the left, then bow your head, and lean it back. Ache, cracking or inability to move—these are alarming signals. According to statistics, 50% of people over 50 and 75% of people over 65 are diagnosed with cervical spine osteochondrosis. Cervical vertebrae are adjacent to one another, and even the slightest displacement can provoke squeezing of nerves and vessels, which subsequently causes inadequate blood supply to brain. It results in headaches, loss of attention focusing, irritability, sleep disorders, fatigability, dizziness, and ear noise. 

Driving, working with the computer, writing or reading, even sleeping on a pillow of a wrong size—all this entails stress for the neck, because vertebrae are troubled by an uncomfortable position… Overcooling may follow in cold weather if you forget a scarf at home, or wear a light blouse. Even the slightest car accidents do not pass without a trace: as a result of collision, driver’s neck sharply straightens and then bends, which causes damage to the intervertebral joints and discs. 

Users of the PC-tablets and mobile phones are also at risk—stooping posture leads to neck muscles overload: head of an adult is rather heavy and weighs about 5 kg. Try to hold such weight in the outstretched arm. Does it feel heavy? The neck experiences the same load. British scientists have even coined a special term—“text neck syndrome”. 

Measures to Take

As a rule we reach for help, grasping painkillers and “anti-headache” pills. However, they provide only temporary relief, and at the same time adversely affect the stomach. Orthopedic collars that are so widespread are another controversial treatment method, as they weaken neck muscles considerably, if used regularly. 

The best way to preserve mobility of muscles is a specific, neck-oriented complex of exercises. If you have sedentary work, don’t forget to make regular breaks. Slowly turn your head to the left, to the right, forwards and backwards, stretch the neck forwards and then reach up with your head, holding the position every time. Try a simple warm-up as well: take a pen or a pencil in your teeth and write every letter of imaginary alphabet in front of you.

Shoulder Girdle

Who’s to Blame?

stat enjoy nekos2If twenty dozen chin-ups and half a hundred of push-ups are not a problem for you, further information might not be necessary: most certainly all 136 of your shoulder joint muscles are functioning properly. However, if the main load on your shoulders is working in front of the computer screen, writing or carrying heavy bags, then sooner or later, you will feel pain, “stiffness” of shoulders and restrained movements. Shoulder girdle muscles atrophy gradually, shoulder joints lose mobility, and the blood circulation is disturbed, which inevitably causes strong chronic headaches. 

Sedentary work in front of the computer or at the writing table and incorrect posture impose constant strain on muscles. Moreover, even an ordinary bag on the shoulder, if its weight exceeds 1.5 kg, deforms shoulder joint, impairs the posture and suppresses cervicobrachial nerves. The most treacherous are bags with long thin straps that pierce into the body. By the way, even an ordinary bra may be harmful, if chosen incorrectly. For example, models with uncomfortable, short or narrow straps disturb blood circulation, pressure shoulders and chest. That particularly concerns plump ample-bosomed ladies. 

Measures to Take 
Exercises with chest expanders and push-ups could be possible preventive measures in case of such problems. Make small breaks several times a day and do some warming-up exercises, like rising and lowering shoulders in shrug-like, circular and stretching movements. By all means purchase a backpack for carrying small loads—this way pressure and load on the shoulders are evenly spread and distributed.

Elbow Joint 

Who’s to Blame? 
stat enjoy nekos3Most movements, like cleaning teeth or signing important documents, imply just one hand, and so its elbow stays under the constant tension. Pain, stiffness and general deterioration of health are among the results of incorrect “operation” of elbows. 

What could a pianist, a house painter, a masseuse, a cook, a butcher and a tennis-player have in common? Regular overload of the forearm and elbow joints, that leads to so-called “tennis elbow syndrome”. Continuous monotonous strain does not let the ligaments relax, and that results in tendon inflammation and acute pain while movement. 

Even plain chat on the cell phone negatively affects elbow joints: talkers hold their hand in unnatural bended position for too long a time (whereas doctors recommend to cut phone talks to 10 minutes maximum), this consequently leads to pinching of the elbow nerve and painful sensations. 

By the way, choose a bag correctly for the sake of your elbows as well: if you carry a loaded bag on a bend of an elbow, its handle may squeeze vessels, disturb the blood circulation and provoke dizziness. 

Measures to Take 
Exercises, regular breaks from work, correct posture and timely visits to a doctor could solve all abovementioned problems. Self-massage and circular movements of elbow joints are also good express-help methods. But do not limit those to just one hand, work with the other one as well. This will kill two birds with one stone: give rest to an “active” hand and train the brain. According to scientists, doing habitual actions with another hand develops creative thinking and enhances stress resistibility.


Who’s to Blame 
stat enjoy nekos4It would seem this part of the body is not in so much action during the day. However, a mouse, a keyboard and even a ball pen, even though they barely weigh anything, can induce quite a serious pain syndrome, which doctors call a “tunnel syndrome”. The reason for acute and strong joint pain is the edema of the joint nerve, constantly irritated by small monotonous movements. 

Measures to Take 
Self-massage, comfortable work place and a small pad under the wrist could help to resolve all these troubles.

Lower Back 

Who’s to Blame? 
stat enjoy nekos5Lower back connects the upper and lower parts of the body and endures an enormous load. Sharp bends, weight lifting, incorrect sitting position—all this is fraught with alterations in the lumbosacral spine. Already by the age of 30, 70% of men and women at least once have consulted a doctor in connection with lower back problems. The pain may be acute or nagging, and can extend to legs and cause numbness. It is caused by the sprain or edema of ligaments, or pinched nerve-root. 

Measures to Take 
Avoid brisk movements, inconvenient chairs, lifting heavy weights and wearing short jackets in cold seasons. Moreover, make a habit of doing exercises to strengthen and stretch waist and abs muscles.


Party in Fault 
stat enjoy nekos6Knee joints are among the most “exploited”. Every step and stair, seating on and rising from a chair, cycling and running—all this makes knees work. Thus they have to bear a huge weight: each kilogram creates a sixfold load on the ligaments, tendons, muscles and cartilages. Excessive weight is particularly harmful, because every kilogram pressures knees six times more, that inevitably leads to thinning of the cartilaginous tissue. According to statistics, more than 30% of overweight people suffer from knee osteoarthritis. 

Measures to Take 
In no circumstances follow the advice to “train” knees by cycling, squatting with extra-weight or running on the inclined or solid surface. Training must include warm-up, mild stretching, and only after that—exercises for muscles: in sitting or supine position. Water aerobics with its partial, but effective load is suitable as well. As for running, it is only acceptable in comfortable, rationally chosen footwear, and on soft surfaces, for example, on grass.


Who’s to Blame? 
stat enjoy nekos7Stand on the scales and. Then jump and watch the numbers dash forward. Ordinary walking pace loads our feet with 1.5 of our body weight (that is 90 kg instead of 60 kg and 120 kg instead of 80 kg), running and athletic strains load the feet with almost three times body weight (180 and 240 kg respectively). Add up uncomfortable footwear: too tight, disturbing the blood circulation, or stiletto heels, which provoke incorrect weight distribution. As a result—swollen, nagging legs that ache while walking. 

Measures to Take 
Control your weight, choose comfortable footwear, massage feet in the evenings, walk barefoot on the grass, stones or at least special carpet, if possible.

In spite of the simplicity of all recommendations, diseases of joints, according to the World Health Organization data, still occupy the third position by prevalence and the first position in the list of reasons for temporary disability. Physical training alone will not suffice to solve this problem: not only our joints need exercising, but also a special diet. 

Most joint diseases are accompanied by emaciation of the cartilaginous membrane that protects the joint, and reduction of the amount of joint fluid. Much like lubrication, it prevents joint surfaces from friction and improves their mobility, serves as an additional shock suppressor during movement. Quality of this fluid is no less important than its amount: the “right” composition must include enough glucosamine and chondroitine. 

The new Vision biologically active food supplement EnjoyNT, a “colleague” of the gel with similar name, helps to protect cartilage and normalize the amount and composition of joint fluid. This unique product contains bamboo extract, glucosamine, chondroitine, and MSM (methylsulfonylmethane). 

Glucosamine is an indispensable joint fluid component, which helps restoration of the damaged cartilage, and boosts metabolism in the cartilaginous tissue. 
Chondroitine protects the existing cartilage from premature disruption and serves as the building material for the new cartilage. 
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. It maintains the healthy state of joint cartilaginous tissue. 
Bamboo extract that has never been used before in similar food supplements, stimulates synthesis of collagen in bone and connective tissues, participates in cartilaginous tissue regeneration, possesses strong re-mineralizing action, and prevents bone tissue depletion. 

Another product with the similar name as the food supplement—EnjoyNT Harpago Gel—makes trainings comfortable, helps to warm up joints, prepares them for work and effectively relaxes them after exercise. 
Devil’s claw, one of the Gel components, produces anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects on the smooth muscles and joints, reduces edema and inflammation. 
Capsicum frutescens extract provides the warming-up effect, improves blood circulation and enhances regeneration of damaged tissues. 

EnjoyNT duo—is the best gift for health and endurance of your joints. With it, any load whatsoever—whether office work or even sky on the shoulders—will seem equally light.
