Achilles Tendinitis

Overview

Achilles tendonitis is a condition that causes inflammation and swelling of the Achilles tendon. The Achilles tendon is the connective tissue between the heel bone and the calf muscle.

Symptoms

Common symptoms of Achilles tendinitis include pain and stiffness along the Achilles tendon and, in severe cases, limited range of motion.

Causes

Achilles tendinitis is often caused by overuse or repetitive stress on the Achilles tendon, resulting from activities such as running, jumping, or sudden increases in physical activity. Poor footwear, inadequate stretching, and biomechanical factors such as high arches or flat feet can also contribute to the development of this condition.

Stress Fractures

Overview

Stress factors are tiny cracks or breaks in a bone caused by repetitive force. These fractures are common in weight-bearing bones, especially among athletes and those who engage in repetitive activities.

Symptoms

Common symptoms of stress fractures include localized pain, swelling, and tenderness at the fracture site. Pain may worsen during activity and subside with rest.

Causes

Stress fractures are typically caused by repetitive stress and strain on the bone. This overwhelms the bone’s ability to repair itself. Common causes include overtraining, sudden increases in activity, improper footwear, and biomechanical issues (flat feet, high arches, etc.).

When renting, the deposit is typically the sum of the first and last month rent payment or as otherwise outlined in the lease agreement.

Depreciation

Discount

In real estate, a discount is a reduction in the price of a property. A seller might offer a discount for a variety of reasons, such as to make their property more attractive to buyers, to compete with other properties on the market, or to sell the property quickly. A buyer can also negotiate a discount with the seller, either by offering a lower price than the asking price or by making a trade-off (such as agreeing to pay closing costs) in exchange for a lower purchase price.

Downpayment

In real estate, a down payment is a payment made by the buyer at the time of purchase to cover a portion of the cost of the property. The down payment is typically a percentage of the purchase price, and it is usually paid in addition to a mortgage loan that covers the remaining cost of the property. The size of the down payment can vary, but it is typically between 5% and 20% of the purchase price. The down payment serves as a form of security for the lender, and it can also have a significant impact on the buyer’s monthly mortgage payments and the overall cost of the property.

A property that is occupied by the owner as their primary residence. This means that the owner lives in the property for the majority of the year and considers it to be their main residence. In Canada, principal residences are exempt from capital gains tax when they are sold. This means that property owners do not have to pay tax on any profit they make from the sale of their principal residence.

Prime Interest Rate

The prime interest rate is a benchmark rate for determining the interest rates to be charged on a variety of loans such as variable-rate mortgages, variable-rate auto loans, HELOCs, and lines of credit. In Canada, each of the big 5 banks sets its own prime rate.

Probate

In Canadian real estate, probate is the legal process by which a deceased person’s will is proved to be valid and their assets are distributed according to the instructions in the will. This process is typically carried out by the executor of the will, who is responsible for managing the deceased person’s assets and ensuring that their debts are paid.

Property Insurance

A type of insurance that covers losses or damage to a person’s property. Property insurance can be purchased for various types of property, such as a home, a vehicle, or personal belongings. The types of losses or damage that are covered by property insurance can vary depending on the policy, but may include events such as fire, theft, and natural disasters.

Property Identification Number (PIN)

The Property Identification Number (PIN) is a unique identification number that is assigned to each property in the province of Ontario. The PIN is used to identify the property for various purposes, such as property tax assessment and collection, land registration, and property information searches.

Property Line

A property line is the boundary that separates one property from another. The property line is typically marked by a physical feature, such as a fence or wall, or by a line on a survey or map. The property line is important because it defines the extent of a property owner’s rights and responsibilities with respect to the property. For example, a property owner is generally responsible for maintaining the property within the property line, and may not be allowed to encroach on the property of their neighbors. The property line can also be relevant in disputes between neighbors, such as when one property owner’s actions affect the other property owner’s use or enjoyment of their property.

Property Taxes

Property taxes are levied by the government on real estate, and are used to fund local public services such as schools, roads, and public safety. Property taxes are typically based on the value of the property, and are paid by the owner of the property. The amount of property tax that is owed is determined by the property’s assessed value, which is an estimate of the property’s worth, and the property tax rate, which is set by the government.

Stress Fractures

Overview

Stress factors are tiny cracks or breaks in a bone caused by repetitive force. These fractures are common in weight-bearing bones, especially among athletes and those who engage in repetitive activities.


Symptoms

Common symptoms of stress fractures include localized pain, swelling, and tenderness at the fracture site. Pain may worsen during activity and subside with rest.


Causes

Stress fractures are typically caused by repetitive stress and strain on the bone. This overwhelms the bone’s ability to repair itself. Common causes include overtraining, sudden increases in activity, improper footwear, and biomechanical issues (flat feet, high arches, etc.).


Risk Factors

  • High-impact activities
  • Inadequate rest between activities
  • Improper equipment
  • Medical conditions (osteoporosis, hormonal imbalances, etc.)


Prevention

  • Proper training techniques
  • Gradual increases in activity intensity
  • Appropriate footwear
  • Sufficient rest


Treatment

Prompt diagnosis and treatment are important for stress fractures. If you suspect you have a stress fracture, consult with a healthcare provider right away. Early detection of stress fractures is key to effective treatment and management.
