Why are joints easily injured?
Mike Clark, DPT, Fitness, answeredJoints (where bones meet) allow movement to occur. There are different types of joints: those that permit a wide range of movement (like the shoulder joint), and those that provide limited movement (like those of the spine). Muscles surround joints and create movement by contracting and relaxing.
Most noncontact injuries occur around joints. Joints can become misaligned due to overactivity or underactivity of muscles that surround them. If a muscle on one side of a joint is short and overactive, the muscle on the opposite side of the joint will be long and underactive, which will create an imbalance and limit the movement of the joint. This imbalance can lead to compensation and eventually a breakdown of the movement chain.
When this happens, injury can occur.
What are razor bumps or razor burn?
Razor bumps (pseudofolliculitis barbae, or razor burn) develop after shaving when strands of hair curl back on themselves and grow into the skin, causing irritation and pimples.
Razor bumps develop most often on the neck, but they can occur in any area that is shaved (such as the cheeks, underarms, pubic area and legs and arms).
Razor bumps occur most often in people who have tightly curled or spiral hair strands.
Using different shaving techniques can help relieve this problem.
