    You notice some pain in your jaw when chewing, which progressively worsens over several weeks. Occasionally you feel a clicking or catching in your jaw when opening and closing your mouth. Eventually you are unable to fully open your mouth and experience pain even when you speak. If you have never experienced this, count yourself very lucky. If you have, you are already familiar with the relatively common condition known as TMD.

    TMD, short for temperomandibular disorder, is estimated to affect as much as 40% of the population at some point in their lifetimes, and is especially prevalent in the young. Initial diagnosis is typically made through a visit to the dentist, and the eventual treatment multidisciplinary with various management techniques. One of the lesser known treatment techniques, but something that is gaining in popularity, is soft-tissue therapy of the masticatory muscles the muscles used to move the jaw.

    As a sports chiropractor using manual soft-tissue therapy on a daily basis, I have treated TMD on many occasions with success, however good research on the subject has been lacking. Recently however, this type of myofascial therapy for TMD was tested for efficacy in a randomized, controlled clinical trial. Researchers from Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia examined the clinical effectiveness of manual therapy in the treatment TMD. Specifically, they compared myofascial therapy to myofascial therapy plus self-care and education and no care (the control group in the study).

    This was a private clinic-based study, with eligible participants ranging from age 18-50 presenting with jaw pain with or without joint sounds of at least 3 months and a willingness to participate in the study. Patients with physical or psychological contraindications were excluded. The outcome measures were jaw pain at rest, jaw pain upon maximal active opening, and jaw pain upon clenching.

    The primary therapy consisted of myofascial release of the masticatory muscles, including the temporalis, medial and lateral pterygoid, and masseter. The subjects were treated twice per week over a period of 6 weeks for a total of 12 therapy sessions. Additionally, one group was given additional education and self-care consisting of self-mobilization, exercises and stretching, as well as general education on TML anatomy, biomechanics, disc displacement and dysfunction, and the role of psychoemotional factors contributing to TMD.

    The results showed a statistically significant positive efficacy for both the myofascial therapy only, and the myofascial therapy plus education and self-care groups. Not surprisingly, the therapy plus self-care group showed a better 1 year outcome than the therapy alone group a trend that has been supported for the care of most musculoskeletal conditions.

    Although the results of this study are no surprise to those practicing manual therapy, it serves to reinforce what we already know anecdotally. For patients suffering from TMD there is now evidence for another great intervention, and for manual therapists not currently treating TMD, there is a great opportunity to expand your skillset and serve those in need.

    What do Al Pacino, Freddy Kruger, and Harry Potter have in common? Maybe it’s their devilish charm? Well, if you think that causing nightmares qualifies any of these guys for the good neighbor award of the month then maybe you’re right, but that’s not exactly what we have in mind. The one thing that does unite this handsome bunch of guys isn’t their outlook on life or their money-packed bank accounts; it’s actually a very basic piece of damaged tissue.

    A Scar’s Life

    It’s easy to identify a scar because it looks and feels different from normal skin. As a matter of fact, a scar’s formation is actually a manifestation of your body’s own defense mechanism. Can’t be? Well, you don’t have to believe everything you hear, but the truth is undeniable.

    As your body attempts to close an open wound and protect itself from infection, it replaces normal skin tissue with rapidly generated scar tissue instead of normal skin structures and cells. This is what we normally call a scar.

    The Various Types of Scars

    There is no such thing one type of scar. As a matter of fact the skin tissue repair process usually leads to a very broad spectrum of different types of scars. This may lead to scars that range from an infinitesimal line to a variety of abnormal scarring that may even limit your mobility.

    Here is a breakdown of some of the basic types of scars.

    Raised skin scars: This type of scar is described as either hypertrophic or keloid scars. It is more often seen on darker skin than lighter skin. In order to treat this type of scar you need to use products that prevent scarring. This does not mean that you can cover your skin with an intense moisturizer and then be carefree. What you need to find are scar prevention products that offer a form of natural scar prevention so that your skin is treated gently and effectively.

    Acne scars: Acne scars can affect anyone that has ever had a pimple. So how does one protect one’s skin? Well, the best form of protection is an effective acne scar remover that will offer scar treatment while also preventing future acne breakouts. It may sound impossible but there is a natural ingredient that offers both.

    When it comes to personal debt, financial experts from around the world agree on one thing: it is a symptom of a much bigger problem with the individual. Debt can build up slowly over the years until it reaches a point where you are paying off so much debt that your personal income doesnt cover what you have to pay each month and worse, you might have to start taking on more debt to fill the gap between income and expenditure.

    Its very easy to get in to debt, with the consumer society we live in we have been led to believe that we can have it all right now and pay for it in manageable bitesize chunks each month. The financial crisis and ongoing recession has proved that the buy now, pay later culture fostered by the credit and retail companies was an unsustainable dream and now many people have great TVs, awesome cars, went on fantastic holidays but have huge debt mountains that have to be dealt with.

    Debt consolidation is a great tool for many families to pull themselves out of the miserable debt cycle. The lower rate of interest gives breathing space each month so you can use your income for essential living costs rather than paying off interest on the couches you bought a few years back, it will reduce your stress levels as you wont get new bills every day and you can make that one easy payment each month right after you get paid.

    Once youve consolidated your debt though you need to rethink your lifestyle and attitude towards credit. If you havent already, now might be the right time to cut up those credit cards particularly the store cards that have crazy interest rates. A new attitude needs to be adopted of waiting to have the money to buy something rather than having everything now and repaying it later. The consumerist lifestyle also needs to be rethought; do you really need to take a foreign holiday each year? Can the gas guzzling SUV be traded in for something more economical? Is there a cheaper place to buy groceries and apparels?

    The danger with debt consolidation is that you dont change your lifestyle and manage your income and expenditure to ensure you dont spend more than you have each month. Debt consolidation is your second chance to get your finances in order there isnt a third chance because if you fail to change your ways after consolidating your debt and continue buying gadgets and going out to restaurants and then paying for it all on credit then you risk losing your home, family and lifestyle.

    Its a pretty scary thought so once youve consolidated your debt, change your ways, change your attitudes to money and think of the relief youll have in 5 years when you are finally debt free.

    years old and still going strong!

    I am constantly being asked about the benefits of massage therapy and in particular, I’m asked about its effectiveness and relevance when compared to today’s cutting edge medical advances, given the fact that massage therapy is well over five thousand years old.

    In response, my answer as always is to consider the fact that any therapy, cure, activity or hobby that can survive for that length of time, must deliver at least some benefits, otherwise it would go the way of every other flash in the pan fad or phase.

    As a massage practitioner and recipient, I need no convincing whatsoever of the benefits of massage therapy, so if I’m asked, I’m happy to defer my own opinion in favour of that of a much higher authority on the subject, which is that of the medical community itself.

    Thanks to the advances in medicine and in medical research, the five thousand year old massage therapy has now been subjected to every modern test and scrutiny, and as many of us expected, massage therapy has proven its value in spectacular style.

    Massage therapy stands shoulder to shoulder with some of the most modern medical practices of our time, and as well as being a stand alone therapy in its own right, massage therapy complements beautifully, the modern advances in medicine.

    To anybody who practices massage therapy, this will come as no surprise, and to be fair it’s only right and proper that any therapy linked to medicine, should be subjected to the highest scrutiny. That aside, what amazes me most is the fact that massage therapy is still considered either as purely an aid to accepted medical practice or that it is still the preserve of the affluent. It also amazes me that massage therapy is only considered as a result of a life changing event. Quite why something that is so beneficial to health and wellbeing isn’t an integral part of everyone’s life remains a mystery to me. Massage therapy need not cost the earth and the most basic massage is free and can be mastered by using the most incredible tools known to man your own hands!

    Do me a favour and don’t wait for an accident, an ailment or a mid life crisis before you discover one of life’s most accessible, time proven and life enriching activities.

    To your continued, outstanding health.

    Q23

    It seems like hundreds of skincare and grooming products are available to men these days and more are being added all the time. But how many of them include high-performance ingredients? How many of them provide effective results? And which ones are really necessary to maintain great-looking skin with a minimum amount of effort?

    How to classify your skin type:

    The first step to finding the right products for you is deciding what type of skin type you have. Most products target several individual skin types: oily skin, dry skin, sensitive skin, acne-prone skin and combination skin.

    Oily skin: Feels slightly greasy or slick to the touch, with larger pores. It is usually more prone to blackheads and whiteheads. Look for products that are ultralight and oil-free, and exfoliating items that will remove oil and dirt.

    Dry skin: Often feels tight and itchy and is more prone to irritations. Look for products that contain hydrating ingredients like Aloe, Urea and Allantoin, and pay special attention to moisturizers. Keep in mind that moisture is not the same thing as oil, so you dont need heavy, oily products to achieve good levels of hydration for your skin.

    Sensitive skin: Easily irritated by skincare or shaving products or extreme weather conditions. Look for products that do not contain dyes, fragrances or irritants and are specially formulated for sensitive skin.

    Normal skin: If havent had any reoccurring skin problems such as shininess, acne or irritated skin, you probably have normal skin. Unless a product states otherwise, most skincare items can be used by men with normal skin.

    Combination skin: Most men fall into this category, having dry patches and oily patches on their face at the same time (oily patches often fall in the T-Zone: your forehead and down your nose to your chin). Look for products that gently clean skin without harsh abrasives and moisturizers that are ultralight.

    Acne-prone skin: Can partner with oily skin, but is also a factor with people with dry skin. This type tends to break out frequently with pimples, blackheads or whiteheads. Look for products that are noncomedgenic (not pore-clogging) and contain ingredients like benzoyl peroxide.

    How to identify effective skincare products for men:

    Once youve zeroed in on what type of skin you have, concentrate on finding products that appeal to that type, or products recommended for all skin types. Easier said then done, right? Theres still a sea of products out there. How can you decide which you need and which ones are nothing more than fancy packaging?

    A good idea is to start with a very basic skin care routine that involves four steps: Cleaning, Exfoliating, Shaving, and Moisturizing. That means you should look for a gentle liquid cleanser for your face, an exfoliating scrub, a shaving product, an aftershave product and an oil-free moisturizer. If you start with these basic items, you cant really go wrong.
