The sacroiliac joints (SIJ) are the joints that connect your lower spine to your pelvis. The sacrum (tail bone) connects to the ilia (pelvic bones). In most people, the SIJ is a stiff joint that provides a stable link between the lumbar spine and pelvis, allowing only a few degrees of movement.
Cervical Radiculopathy is a clinical term describing neurological symptoms originating from the cervical spine (neck) which is irritated. This is commonly called “pinched nerve”. The nerve roots from the cervical spine may be compromised by many structures in the neck.

Iron is an important mineral, which is a key component in red blood cells responsible for the transportation of oxygen in the blood tissues throughout the body (haemoglobin). It is also involved in immune function, acts as an oxygen reservoir (myoglobin), and is important for children’s cognitive and physical development. Without sufficient iron, haemoglobin levels will be low and anaemia will result.
The Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) is a ligament inside the knee joint. The PCL attaches to the shin bone (tibia) and to the thigh bone (femur). Along with the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), these ligaments provide stability to the knee.

Sugar cravings are often responsible for our late night binges and the inevitable sugar crash afterwards. The picture looks very bleak, but is sugar really that bad for us? Are the media personalities right in their crusade against sugar?

Key muscles is this area include the gluteus medium, […]
