Preventing Sarcopenia

Count me among those who celebrate every effort to keep our hearts and minds healthy as we age! I enjoy puzzles and games, reading books to discuss with friends, as well as reading all the contentious literature about nutrition and general health advice. I encourage my patients to find some mentally challenging activity they enjoy, as well as activities that bring meaning and pleasure to their lives.

Rotator Cuff Injury and Regenerative Injection Therapy

Have you ever strained your shoulder? I was reminded yesterday that just a few years ago I "pulled something", couldn't raise my arm without the other arm helping out, and was looking at WEEKS off of the rowing team. Unacceptable! Prolotherapy worked wonders and worked quickly, so I asked one of our local prolotherapists to write an article about it, which I am happy to share with you here.

Thank you to Dr. Justin Adams for being part of a well functioning integrative medical team, and for describing his work in this article:

Some mornings, the pain is bearable. You creak out of bed and tough it out for another day. Other times, the achy stiffness, joint pain, and swelling are cripplingly intense.

If you're one of the 27 million Americans suffering from osteoarthritis, you know this diagnosis was once considered equivalent to a life sentence of chronic pain. Today, however, the outcome may be more hopeful.

Studies show it is possible not only to relieve pain but to actually reverse the damage to joint cartilage caused by osteoarthritis. Making key lifestyle and dietary changes, along with taking the proper supplements, could kick your osteoarthritis to the sidelines for good.
