Downsizing in 2014

Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve—the theme of these gatherings spent with friends and family can be summed up with the popular phrase:  “Go big or go home!” However, if we are honest, what occurred over the holidays is that we “Got big; then went home!” I believe that scaling back in the food intake department should be…

Will the real sinus headache please stand up?

Growing up I remember watching the popular game show, What’s My Line? The program began by announcing that one of the four panelists had an interesting career, such as an astronaut. The other three panelists were “posers” (imposters). The contestant’s job was to question the bunch, and when the allotted time was up, they had to guess…

Supplements that calm joint inflammation

Many people have achy joints they must contend with. For some, their joint pain is short lived—brought on by an aggravating activity or by fluctuations in the weather. For others, their joint pain is a chronic, daily irritant. If your joint pain comes and goes, but is “gone” more than “on”, you would probably due best to rest, apply…

Don’t wear out your neck

Most of us take our necks for granted. That is, until it begins to ache. And just to make sure it’s got our attention, a painful neck will begin to “lock up” so that we lose motion, most notably, in rotation. One day you are able to turn your head comfortably, and the next day, there is a painfully abrupt “stop” to that formally free movement.…

Are you standing on a short leg?

Most of my patients are caught completely off-guard when I tell them that that one of their legs is significantly shorter than the other. As their physical therapist I know that their inherent “unevenness” may have created or has compounded the pain complaints that the patient has come to be treated for. In the adult population,…

Can bulging discs be fixed?

Back in 1989, when I first began treating patients with back and neck pain, most people were aware that the bones in their spine were separated by discs (likely a result of effective chiropractic marketing). Unfortunately, due to that same widespread chiropractic marketing, a majority of my patients believed that their discs…

The wonders of watermelon

When I was a child, I didn’t believe that watermelon had a redeeming quality—beyond using its seeds as a projectile arsenal of sorts. You see, those very same seeds made eating watermelon so tedious, that I steered clear of this fruit for close to two decades! Then something glorious (and likely, genetically altered) happened:…

Hepatitis C—the silent killer

“Hepatitis” means, simply, “inflammation of the liver”. Many things can inflame the liver such as heavy alcohol use, certain drugs, or bacteria. There are, however, three distinct viral types of hepatitis, namely, A, B, and C; each caused by a different virus. Hepatitis A is an acute problem which usually improves without treatment.…

The skinny on diet soda

If you are trying to win the “battle of the bulge” it’s likely that you have turned to diet soda as your beverage of choice. Bubbly, bursting with flavor, and no calories—who could ask for more? Well, I am sorry to be the one to burst all those tiny bubbles, my friend, but I have some not-so-good news for you. Recent studies have found …

Restless legs syndrome

If you’ve never heard of this semi-maddening, sleep-altering issue, count yourself and your loved ones as blessed! Sadly, a full 10% of the adult population in the U.S. is afflicted by this condition which seriously should be called “rest-less” leg syndrome. Here’s why: Restless legs syndrome, or RLS, is characterized by strong,…
