Topfen Curd Cheese : Sports Injury Treatment

When American skier, Lindsey Vonn, injured her shin muscle it was reported part of her treatment was a home remedy of Topfen Curd cheese.

She wrapped her leg in Austrian topfen curd cheese – a product similar to cream cheese that’s mainly used for eating but reported to also bring down swelling. This sounds to me something similar to Ice treatment.

The speculation is topfen curd cheese has some anti inflammatory properties.

According to a Washington Post article several other U.S. Ski Team members have tried plastering the product on ailing body parts to speed recovery.

There is no scientific backing for the soft white cheese but it seems some people are using it and it is working!

9 Common Running Mistakes

From the bbc health website I found this list

Some of the most obvious weaknesses you see in runners and joggers are:

1. Bouncing up and down too much

2. Over striding

3. Not using their hamstrings enough

4. Landing on feet too heavily

5. Breaking action on landing

6. Not using arms

7. Twist midriff side to side while running

8. The head and upper body are bent forward

9. Jogging slower than you could walk!

Most joggers and runners are biomechanically inefficient because their running technique is poor.

They don’t use the necessary body parts efficiently so when they are supposed to be enjoying themselves they are instead suffering pain.
