Questions...


Thursday, March 07, 2013

1. How do sparkpeeps copy images to their blogs (besides photos)?
I tried to cut and paste an image but couldn't do it.

2. Has anyone tried the Tiger Tail or Thera Band hand held foam roller and how did you like it?
(What I was unable to post an image of to clarify my question)
I can find them online but it doesn't seem either is sold in any stores-
could that be?

My hip pain is waking me up at night again and I cannot afford another round of physical therapy.
I have been stretching and icing and taking anti-inflammatories but am still suffering.
I really hope I'm not over-doing it at the gym.

EDIT:
Thnx for the help- let's see if I can do it:


woooooooo-hoooooooo!
I did it!

    There is a good article on here http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource
/fitness_articles.asp?id=1578 which is yoga for runners. The most common running problem is the IT band which runs from the hip to the knee. These stretches have really helped me with my hip pain. Try a couple after you work out...take them slow and easy. You can hold for as long as you like. I usually work my way in slowly and add more stretch as the pain lets up.

My new roller is helping...I am planning on taking it to work with me today to use several times since my run day is today.

    I found this in "Runners World":

Hip bursitis does not occur spontaneously--something must be causing it. Usually that "something" is either a bio-mechanical error (pelvic alignment, leg length discrepancy, muscle imbalances...) or a training error (overuse, running on the same side of the street, adding hills/speed too fast, worn out shoes...). In that case, the best thing you can do is a) find the root of the problem, and b) correct it (usually through physical therapy or remedying the training error).

In many cases, the bursitis is simply an overuse response to excessive motion in the hip joint. For instance, if you have weak hip flexors, or an imbalance among your flexors, extensors, lower back, and glutes, one of the best things you can do is to strengthen the weak muscles.

Due to the location of the bursa within the hips, it is often hard to reach with ice and cortisone injections. The bursa are buried so deeply beneath the layers of muscle and connective tissue that any icing you do would barely touch the surface. (Still, if it makes you feel better, go for it.) Ibuprofen or prescription anti-inflammatories are usually more effective in taking down the swelling.

Hope this helps.

    Sorry to hear the hip pain has returned! emoticon I have no answer. Since spending the week at daughter's caring for the 5 & 3 year old, I've been having lots of lower back pain and hip pain. All I'm doing is ibuprofen and some heat. Hope you get all of your questions answered!!!

    Try this stretch for your hip: Go into a lunge position but with your back leg stretched out straight instead of bending at the knee. Then lean back from your waist. (hope I'm describing this correctly!) You should feel it in the front of your hip. It makes my hips feel a lot better.

Also, an antiimflamatory my doctor gave me called Etodolac is the best stuff I've ever had. Kills all my aches and pains!

Hope you feel better.

    I think #1 has been answered, right? Right click on the image and the click on "save picture as". I give it a unique name and save to my desktop, especially if I'm going to delete it after I upload it. Then add it to your blog as a picture.

Don't know about the roller...just know you have to let up if you feel pain. At our age I don't think there's any truth to the old adage, "You can work through it", I think we just continue to injur ourselves.

Take care!

    I save the image to my computer in my picture directory first then upload to Spark. Hope this helps.

I suffer from hip pain also... but it happens when my shoes need to be replaced. Any chance that could be an issue for you?

    For instance if i see an image on facebook and i want to put it in my blog here's what i do.

right click over the picture a drop down appears and i would click "save image as"
and in the box i'd type in watermelon (picture subject) and albel the folder "clips" and my hard drive has a folder titled "clips".
When doing my blog add an image then browse and select clips then watermelon.

Hope this helps It's pretty simalar to adding a picture of Lucy

No to #2 question

    Sorry about your hip pain, mine have been sore too. I find my aches and pains are always worse when the seasons change, not sure if it's a coincidence or not. Hope you're not overdoing it at the gym either, keep going, but maybe back off just a bit. Sorry not familiar with the product you mention. Hope you're feeling better soon!!!

    MEDHOPEFUL777 is right Liz, save images as .bmp or ,jpg and you should be okay.

Can't help with the roller.

If you think you might be overdoing it at the gym, let up on the exercise hun, you know it makes sense to rest it- however enthusiastic and hell bent you are to exercise you need to heal *yes mum*

I'm the same.........never listen emoticon emoticon take care emoticon

    I see you got your answer for uploading the photo. Can't help with the other question...but sending you hugs regarding that nasty hip of yours.

    Can't help with the questions, but feel for you with hip pain. I would definitely eliminate the gym stuff that exacerbates
that area's pain - at least until you heal.

    To get pictures on your blog you must upload them first (can't copy/paste unfortunately). So when you see a picture of something you want to add, right click, "save as" to your computer, then start a blog, click on the upload a picture button and select the picture from your computer file. Then it will be there :) As for the foam roller I'm not sure. Have a great day!
