What if everything you thought you knew about injury recovery was wrong? If you have ever been injured, you know that there is an overload of information out there, making it very difficult to decide on a path to recovery. With such a range of diverse and, many times, conflicting information out there, how do you know if you are making the best decisions for your health? If you have ever suffered from back, knee, shoulder, neck, foot and ankle, or other sports injury problems but don’t know what to do about it, this book is for you. Stop wasting any more time and get clarity now. This book focuses on long-term solutions for living a more active and healthy life post-injury, without suggesting unhealthy or unnecessary options such as painkillers, injections, or surgeries. Too many people continue to put off taking care of their health, hoping their pain will “go away soon” or saying that it’s “just a part of getting older.” All the while, these same people become more and more frustrated that they can’t do what they used to be able to or what they would like or need to do in their current everyday life. If you are someone who values your health and wants to continue---or begin---living an active lifestyle, then this book will be your guide, leading you from pain and injury to recovery. Here is some of what you’ll learn in this book: · The false beliefs about injury recovery that could be holding you back and how to avoid making costly mistakes (especially if you already have pain or stiffness) in your recovery journey · Why your pain may not be improving when it should be · What’s needed to recover from injuries in each body region (back, knee, shoulder, neck, foot/ankle, etc.) · How you can stay active with your favorite sport or exercise while improving your pain · How to approach mobility-training exercises to get the most benefit for rehab versus for performance · Steps and advice to improve your overall mental wellness and nutrition How to choose a quality healthcare provider who best fits your needs. Want to truly understand the principles that guide injury recovery? Adding Insight To Injury lays out a blueprint for understanding all of the decisions needed in the rehabilitation process. This book lays out safe and effective approaches for rehabilitating injuries and actionable steps for returning to an active life. With the information in this book, you can make a better, more well-informed decision about your health, allowing you to decide what you need to do to make improvements. Unsure how to put everything together into a program that addresses your individual needs? Applying the principles in this book will allow you to devise a plan to improve your pain, injury, mobility, strength, and return to whatever you need to do. Quality movement is a unique characteristic that helps define us as human beings. But, if we can’t move the way we deserve, it can interrupt our lives. Many times, the causes of pain, stiffness, and poor movement may be difficult to spot on your own. This book gives you the tools to identify and overcome the problems associated with ineffective injury recovery. Whether you are a professional athlete, weekend warrior, someone who just occasionally exercises, or simply want to move and live your life without physical restrictions or impairments, this one-of-a-kind guide will teach you how to take control of the injury recovery process and improve your life. Some of the other topics covered include: · Why letting your injury “rest” is a bad idea · Why stretching and exercise are not likely going to help your pain · When the theory of “no pain, no gain” isn’t something you should follow · The difference between flexibility and mobility and why it matters with injury recovery · Understanding why where you hurt (the victim) isn’t necessarily where the pain is coming from (the culprit) · What is involved in treating common problems like back pain, shoulder and neck pain, knee pain, hip pain, foot and ankle pain, and sports injuries · How to approach strength, flexibility, mobility, and exercise to prevent and rehabilitate common injuries · How to modify and perform cross-training while you are injured · Why beds, pillows, shoes, braces or other items likely won’t help you alleviate your pain, in the long run · Pain and injury timelines as well as rehabilitation guidelines and timeframes · How posture affects your pain · Why you may not have tight hamstrings or hip flexors even though they feel “tight” · What is needed to get rid of your pain and how to fix the bad habits that are slowing your injury recovery · The techniques to try with your workouts or exercise to help with injury preventions · The 53 most frequently asked questions and detailed answers about pain, injuries, and injury recovery This comprehensive guide is meant to be the answer to all of the injury recovery questions you have and give you information needed during the recovery process. Following the advice in this book will help lead you to a happier, more active lifestyle for years to come.

Expand your existing portfolio by using the creative luxury process to elevate specific products and provide greater value to customers. Contrary to popular belief, luxury is a well-defined code that can be reapplied to any other product or service to enhance its value. Adding Prestige to Your Portfolio reveals how non-luxury companies can apply the principles of luxury and creativity to transition parts of their portfolio to luxury status. Adding Prestige to Your Portfolio describes how companies can elevate any product or service at each step of the customer buying journey (awareness, search and compare, purchase, use, advocate). By applying the creativity technique Closed World Principle, readers can determine which luxury benefits (security, fun, self-respect, self-fulfillment, accomplishment, recognition, relationships or belonging) would best map to their product or service and garner the greatest business impact at that particular stage of the customer buying journey. Illustrated with examples from industries as diverse as healthcare and industrial equipment, Adding Prestige to Your Portfolio shows companies how to borrow the elements of luxury and sprinkle them throughout the customer experience in order to strengthen loyalty and increase their appeal to potential new customers. Online resources include sample syllabi, templates to aid in application of framework, case studies and discussion questions.

We extend the Global Projection Model (GPM) to include a separate block for China. China plays an important role in shaping global economic outcomes, given its sheer size and trade integration with other key economies, its demand for commodities, and its policies. Also, the Chinese economy has several unique features which differentiate it from the rest of emerging Asia. These features (the use of multiple monetary-policy instruments and a managed-floating exchange-rate policy) mean that a separate treatment of China allows for a better consideration of China, as well as how the rest of emerging Asia behaves.

Ajax can bring many advantages to an existing web application without forcing you to redo the whole thing. This book explains how you can add Ajax to enhance, rather than replace, the way your application works. For instance, if you have a traditional web application based on submitting a form to update a table, you can enhance it by adding the capability to update the table with changes to the form fields, without actually having to submit the form. That's just one example. Adding Ajax is for those of you more interested in extending existing applications than in creating Rich Internet Applications (RIA). You already know the "business-side" of applications-web forms, server-side driven pages, and static content-and now you want to make your web pages livelier, more fun, and much more interactive. This book: Provides an overview of Ajax technologies, and the importance of developing a strategy for changing your site before you sit down to code Explains the heart and soul of Ajax: how to work with the XMLHttpRequest object Introduces and demonstrates several important Ajax libraries, including Prototype, script.aculo.us, rico, Mochikit Explores the interactive element that is Ajax, including how to work with events and event handlers that work across browsers Introduces the concept of web page as space, and covers three popular approaches to managing web space Explains how to make data updates, including adding new data, deleting, and making updates, all from within a single page Describes the effects Ajax has on the Web-breaking the back button, losing browser history, dynamic effects that disappear when the page is refreshed, and more Covers advanced CSS effects, including drag and drop "scroll bars", pagination, and the use of SVG and the Canvas object Explores mashups-Ajax's ability to combine data from different web services in any number of ways, directly in our web pages You don't need to start over to use Ajax. You can simply add to what you already have. This book explains how.

But when her two young nephews were unceremoniously deposited on her doorstep, her life took a turn toward the domestic—and fast! Fortunately, Miranda had a reliable friend to turn to: her accountant, Mark Wallace, himself the doting single dad of two little girls. After Mark opened his home to her new brood, Miranda began to feel differently about him…an emotion far deeper than friendship. As she came to terms with raising two young boys, could she also forge a new family—with Mark at her side?

A not-so-silent thief makes off with $226 billion, every year, robbing the economy, flooding hospitals, clogging courts. And landing million-dollar spots in the year's biggest televised sports events. “It” is alcohol. Not terrorism. Not obesity. Not cancer or diabetes or Ebola or any other disease. It's alcohol. We'll spend more to combat these other scourges that cause less turmoil and financial damage while alcohol rules the roost, the clubhouse and the corner office. The third-leading cause of preventable death and illness stays under the radar because of good advertising and bad stigma. Its purveyors are proclaimed as charitable kings. Those who use it and discover alcohol has health and social consequences, are labeled as villains, kill-joys, weak, weird, or morally off. The stigma of alcohol use disorders, treatment and recovery keeps the discussion of what alcohol does to you behind the wishful-thinking-driven chatter about what it does for you. The tipping point has passed. The status quo: No longer sustainable or acceptable. Adding Fire to the Fuel examines: How families and communities feed public and self-stigma even while the stigma holds them back; How stigma has become a barrier to many who want help; How to hang on to sobriety in a pro-alcohol world; And how PANonymous alcoholics will reduce stigma more than all the protests combined.
