These workout ways may cause a worse pain | 这样锻炼,只能越练越痛

June 30, 2018

Some bad workout habits may make your pain getting worse and cause some health problems:

 

I. Swimming Pool

Most community center has a pool. Most pool comes with a hot tub and steam room. Pool, hot tub, and steam room is a common routine for many people. Many are doing this way:

 

——Go to steam room right after swimming, and then go swimming right after steam room. Such cycle may be repeated.

——Cold water shower right after steam room or hot tub.

——Walking with bare feet right after steam room or hot tub.

 

From a TCM point of view, all these above actions may cause the coldness to enter the body, causing all kinds of pain, such as foot pain, knee pain, neck pain or other pain in the joints. Some may further developing cold, fever or even pneumonia or nephritis. I have seen such cases in my practice.

 

Here is my personal experience: many years ago, when I was working in Russia, I was invited by a nurse to his house in the countryside in a holiday. His son Alex, of several years senior to me, wanted to show me the “Authentic Russian Sauna Style”: Steam till very sweaty, then immediately jump into cold water pool. Came up and whip the whole body with tree branches till the skin turns red. Then steam again, and roll on the snow. Then whip with branches again... I was a little scared so I did not follow him. And poor Alex, turns out to be only a second timer doing it, had a bad fever for many days...

  

II. Hot Yoga

Yoga is so popular in Vancouver, that the best Yoga clothing is made in this city. Hot Yoga is a unique one---it is done at 33 to 40 degrees. At this hot temperature, the body will extract large amount of sweat, feeling relaxed. However the problem is many people are doing it too often, even on a daily basis, for 1 to 2 hours each time. This will cause problems. In TCM theory, sweat and blood is considered of the same origin. Sweat also carries the “Qi”, and over-sweating will damage the “heart”. Sweating too much will lose large amount of sodium from the body, causing fatigue. Eventually it will accumulate to cause palpitation. 

 

I had a male patient who was a big fan of steam room and hot yoga that he did on a daily basis. I warned him the risk but he did not follow. After two years, until he had to see cardiology doctor, he finally listened to what I said. Now he is doing hot yoga on a controlled schedule and he is recovering. He is also recovering from knee and back pain, which were also related to his past habits.

 

There are many other issues to talk about regarding effects of improper exercise. I will continue next time.

这样锻炼,只能越练越痛

 

来到加拿大近14年后,我对加拿大人的生活习惯越来越了解。由于加拿大优美的自然环境,加拿大人热衷于各种锻炼。因此加拿大人看起来大多身体健硕,阳光挺拔。但是,由于很多人不太注意运动中和运动后的细节,导致了很多病痛。

 

1.游泳池 

 

加拿大所有社区中心的游泳池都有三温暖桑拿房等完善设施。

 

大家游泳后都喜欢泡完三温暖,蒸完桑拿后再回家。

 

我看到很多人都在做以下几个动作:

——游完即蒸,蒸完再立即入水游泳,然后马上再蒸

——蒸完桑拿或泡完三温暖立即冲凉水

——蒸完或泡完后光脚走路

 

 

以上这些情况均会导致寒邪入里,引发各种痛症。如足跟痛,膝痛,颈痛,或其他关节痛。严重者可导致发热感冒或其他疾病如肺炎、肾炎等。在临床可以经常看到类似的病例。

 

这里举一个例子:我多年前在俄罗斯行医时,受邀去一个护士家的乡村别墅过节,和他的孩子Alex一起桑拿。Alex大我几岁,他为了教给我正宗俄式桑拿法,亲自做示范:蒸出全身大汗后,立即跳入水池,然后上岸用荆条抽打至全身发红,之后继续桑拿大汗后,立即在雪地里滚一圈,回来后继续用荆条抽打。我胆怯没做成,而第二次做这种俄式桑拿的Alex则高热多天。。。

 

 

2.热瑜伽

 

瑜伽和热瑜伽在温哥华非常普及,以至于全世界最好的瑜伽服就诞生在这个城市。热瑜伽的温度有33至40度左右,当人在这种环境下锻炼是会大量出汗,感觉心情舒畅,身体放松。但问题是很多人一周会做数次甚至一天一次,每次1-2小时。这样就问题就出现了:流失汗液和电解质过多,身体得不到完全补充。因此会出现疲乏无力现象。久而久之会出现心慌,心悸等情况。中医认为血汗同源,气随汗出,久汗必伤及心脏。

 

有个男性病人连续蒸桑拿和热瑜伽,每日至少一次的排毒,我曾警告他这样会伤身体,他没有听从。以至不到两年的时间,他需要去看心脏科医生。目前,他有规律地节制热瑜伽和桑拿后,病情出现好转。同时他以前还有膝关节痛及腰痛,都跟不注意寒热有关。现在也都逐渐好转。

 

还有很多的运动不当的情况,我们下次再谈。
