Did you know that...?

Migraines and tension headaches

Almost one person out of two between 18 and 65 admit to be suffering from headaches once in a while. Headaches, also called cephalalgia, correspond to a pain felt in the skull region. Tension headaches are the ones that can be treated with physiotherapy. Migraines, in turn, mostly require treatment with medication. Consult your doctor for this.

The lumbar sprain

It is defined as a trauma that the ligaments or muscle tendons located in the lumbar region (lower back) go through, due to excessive stretching or even tearing.

The trigeminal neuralgia

The trigeminal neuralgia, which shows itself by a pain arising in repetition on a single side of the face, is the result of an affection of one of the three branches of the trigeminal nerve or of many of them. The trigeminal nerve is responsible for the transport of the face sensations to the brain.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)

Sleep apnea is characterized by abnormal pauses in breathing, during the sleep, that usually last from 10 to 30 seconds. These pauses sometimes come back a hundred times in a night. At the end of each episode, the brain briefly awakes the person so that he / she starts breathing again, which involves a jerked sleep, and one of bad quality.

The shoulder tendonitis

Shoulder tendonitis is a very common pathology affecting a lot of people. The pain felt in the shoulder's superior part often stops the joint from doing its normal functions.

The discal hernication

A discal hernication is the bulging of a disk which happens in the spinal cord canal and causes a backward expulsion of the nucleus pulposus inside that canal.

The lateral epicondylitis or tennis elbow

The lateral epicondylitis or tennis elbow comes from an inflammation of the muscles that are located on the dorsal face of the forearm and that all attach to the external face of the elbow.
