Everyday nurses talk to their patients about all of the ways they can modify their lives in order to be healthier and stay out of the hospital. However, nurses are not good at taking their own advice. They are some of the unhealthiest people. Throughout school nurses are trained to give the best care possible to all of their patients, even if that meant no lunch that day. There are so many ways that nurses do not take care of their bodies and some of these may be a shock. I will discuss some of the ways such as not eating healthy or just not eating at all, stress and its effects on the body, and posture issues. All of these issues are important to nursing because patients do not want to take advice from someone that does not look like they take care of themselves.
Stress can cause many issues in the nursing world and this writer would like to discuss not only ways to avoid it but ways to reduce it as well. Nurses also need a few tips on weight management, ways to improve eating habits, and ways to incorporate physical activity into their lifestyles. Lastly nurses rarely learn correct posture techniques. Therefore, they hurt themselves while moving patients or lifting things. Many nurses complain of back pain or neck pain on a daily basis.
There are many concerns that nurses have on a daily basis that make them contemplate continuing practice. In 2011, the top three concerns of nurses were effects of stress and overwork, disabling…

1.2 Concepts of Non-specific LBP
Despite this, the majority of low back pain is not attributable to a specific known pathology; hence, the etiology of non-specific LBP remains unclear (Balagué et al. 2012b).…

Orebro Musculoskeletal Pain Questionnaire (OMPQ) was developed to assist in the identification of clients that are experiencing musculoskeletal pain and are at risk of a delayed recovery leading to longer absence from work, restriction in function and pain. (Hocking, McAuley & Maher 2008; Sattelmayer, Lorenz, Roder & Hilfiger, 2011). OMPQ is used by occupational therapist’s with clients who are effected by pain problems that are resulting in decreased performance at work and/or…
Most people end up primarily using their hip muscles, not their abdominal muscles, so they’re working the wrong muscles. Sit-ups also put a lot of pressure on the discs in the spine.
• Another exercise to avoid is the double leg lift. Lifting both legs while you’re lying flat on your back places a lot of stress on the lower spine. If your muscles are already weak in that area, you could actually add to your pain instead of relieving it.
Also make it a habit to avoid full-length toe touches.…

High velocity, low amplitude (HVLA) thrust techniques of the spine are also known by several names, e.g. High Velocity Thrust Manipulation, Spinal Adjustment,…
A. Cranial nerve involvement can be broken down into two portions. The anterior 2/3 of the tongue are innervated by the Chorda Tympani branch of the Facial nerve which is carried by the lingual nerve which branches off the mandibular branch of the Trigeminal nerve. Sensory component of the anterior 2/3 is maintained by the lingual nerve. The posterior 1/3 of the tongue is innervated by the glossopharyngeal nerve which supplies both sensory and taste.
B. The human tongue contains multiple…
