How We Measure Success

I can't speak for other cultures, but I can confirm that most Korean parents love discussing how well their grown children are doing with their careers.

Hip Mobility Exercises to Address Hip Pain and Stiffness

Between knees and hips, it's difficult to say which area is more prone to degenerative changes as we age, but in my experience, it's far easier to protect your hips than your knees.

Knees are relatively simple - they are hinge joints, meaning that they are designed to work in one major plane, and generally, they wear down in predictable fashion. The more you grind them through daily life, the weaker your cartilage and ligaments become. Your knees are not well vascularized compared to other major joints in your body, so there isn't a lot you can do by way of stretching and massage to facilitate repair of damaged cartilage and ligaments in and around your knee joints.

Exercises for Knee Pain

When hamstrings and calves are short and hypertonic from lack of mindful use and stretching, their tendons can generate a low-grade backward pulling force on the tibia or femur, which predisposes the quadriceps and patellar tendon that runs along the anterior portion of the knee to injury. This is why regular stretching of your hamstrings, gastrocnemius, and soleus is essential to supporting healthy knee function. Read more about Exercises for Knee Pain

 

Natural Ways to Treat Wrist Pain

When looking to overcome wrist pain, a good first step is to identify its root cause.

Overuse is arguably the most common cause of pain and stiffness in the wrist joint. When the wrist is asked to do more work than it is suited for without adequate rest, the ligaments, tendons, muscles, and even the bones that make up the wrist can become inflamed.
