You might want to try using compression bands for the first few weeks. We have recommended this to a good deal of clients, however it is not without its drawbacks. The band does allow you to lift your butt at the same time, but also has the risk of making your butt bigger so we are not sure how the benefit is divided up. So you might need to experiment to find the right size compression band and which one suits you. One thing we do know is this…if it doesn’t fit you, don’t use it.
A study, the most comprehensive to date, shows how an increasing number of American homes are being flooded and how those homes are often constructed with watertight siding that could become flooded if a heavy storm happens.
Researchers at the Ohio University and the University of Maryland found that the percentage of homes that were constructed with concrete siding, a feature known as drywall, is increasing rapidly in the suburbs. Drywall is often built of layers of masonry and can be found at homes across the country.
A third of the drywall installed in 2007 was used with concrete, and now about 1 in 4, about one in every 4 homes, used this type of siding, said James L. McCausland, a professor of earth science and engineering at Ohio University and an author of the study, which will be published later this year in the Water Resources Research Journal.
In a small portion of homes, water intrusion occurs during the construction process, but many of the houses examined were built after the new laws requiring that homes be sited in accordance with the latest engineering standards that were put into effect in the 1970s.
“That’s going to change as the drywall gets more expensive and the cost of replacing it goes down,” McCausland said. “They probably won’t replace it as often as they do today.”
The study was done by a team of researchers led by a former Ohio University professor, David S. Vise, a world-renowned researcher and researcher at Columbia University and Columbia College.
The University of Maryland study shows that 1.9 million of the 482,000 homes in Maryland had drywall installed, with the number continuing to rise. Another 638,000 homes had brick drywall installed, compared with 1.8 million and 635,000 homes, respectively, before the drywall was banned in the 1980s, according to the report.
