Beach chair position
The beach chair position is widely used in the relief of shoulder dislocations and shoulder osteoarthritis. To treat the aches in your neck and shoulders you can lie on your back on a pillow, bed or chair at the beach. You can then raise your knees while keeping your pelvis flat on the ground. Keep the upper body slightly elevated above the level of the floor by holding onto the edge of the bed or pillow. Use your feet to pull up the chin and raise your upper body off the floor by straightening the spine. This will help in stretching out the muscles of the neck and shoulders.
Patients who have undergone this treatment usually feel some mild to severe discomfort. A Beach Chair position is one of the many relief techniques for Osteoarthritis. It is done by placing your feet on top of a pillow at the beach chair position, while keeping your lower back straight and your shoulders down. One must be careful when performing this treatment so as to avoid any form of deliberate hypotension or worse, a stroke. To prevent a stroke one must be careful that the blanket covering the patient is not too thick, as it may cause hypotension.
For a greater safety measure one must remember that one must stay upright during this treatment. One of the major benefits of this beach chair position is that it can be used when a nerve block is needed. If one suffers from a nerve block during this procedure then the legs will be positioned in an upright position.
During a nerve block, which can be caused by a herniated disc or a mild strain, the treatment Beach chair Position can help one get some relief by moving the affected body part, usually the arm, backwards while keeping the spine straight. This movement can be very helpful with the nerve block. It allows the patient to keep his/her head and/or shoulders in an upright position. This positioning allows the patient to be more comfortable during the procedure and may also avoid feeling down during the procedure. It is essential that when in this position that the patient does not try to move any muscles, as this may increase the pain further.
When performing Beach chair position during a brachial plexus nerve block, the Beach chair position should only be used when a qualified physician is present. There are many cases where people have performed their own Brachial Plexus Nerve block treatment without a physician present. This is often a recipe for disaster as not only is the patient in danger but the results of this procedure can be disastrous. In these cases, Beach chairs must only be performed by a highly trained and experienced plastic surgeon. The surgeon must be experienced enough in order to perform the upper extremity movement properly, and he/she must be skilled enough to know how to make the patient comfortable during the procedure.
There are certain precautions that plastic surgeons must take to ensure the highest probability of success for their Beach chair treatment. Patients must realize that there is a chance that both stenosis and brachial plexus damage can occur simultaneously. There have been cases where patients who had brachial plexus injury before undergoing Beach chair surgery were later diagnosed with cerecogenic atrophy (CDA). Cerecogenic atrophy is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder of the central nervous system that occurs after many years of aging. This type of neurodegenerative disorder is more common in older patients and can result in death. A highly trained, experienced surgeon can prevent cerebral desaturation events in his/her patients.
