Physical therapy is traditionally known as “hands-on,” because the therapists move their patients’ bodies and help them with various exercises. This “hands-on” approach improves your ability to function and expedites your recovery from injury or an operation. Times are changing though, and technology is changing with it; making it possible for physical therapists to better assist their patients throughout their healing process.
Some of the top technological advances in physical therapy include:

New parents experience a whirlwind of emotions, especially the mother-to-be. Naturally, you want a healthy baby, and preparing to become parents can be an anxious, yet exciting time in a couple’s life. Choosing a doctor for your baby or maybe for the entire family, is a very personal decision.
One of the most troublesome questions that expectant parents ask is: What doctor will have my baby’s best interest at heart? Some of the best people to trust with this question are close family members and friends. They will most likely be brutally honest with you about the doctor they take their children to, whether it is a pediatrician or a family practitioner. Word of mouth is the best way to learn the reputation of the doctor, his good points, and his not so good points.
The first kind of doctor that comes to mind for most women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant is an obstetrician. Even if the doctor is in a group practice (meaning that he’s not the only doctor in the office) that has midwives who are often overlooked when it comes to prenatal care and delivery. Who you are comfortable within the OB/GYN office is important and this can be one of the determining factors in choosing who you want to deliver your baby.
Becoming a parent for the first time is a joyous, exhilarating and uncertain time in your life; filled with wonder and awe of this tiny, new member of your family. Even if you already have children, welcoming another child into your family is still a wonderful experience. If you are new parents, you probably have a million thoughts and questions swirling around in your head. Some of them may be: How will the other children react to the new baby? Will I give the new baby enough attention like I did with the other kids? How will I know when something is wrong?
All of these questions and concerns are normal. You will learn your baby’s cries in the first few days and know what he needs. Since he cannot talk yet, crying is his only form of communication at this age. Some of his cries will mean that he’s hungry or needs his diaper changed, others will let you know if something is wrong with him.
Colic can be a parent’s worst nightmare when it comes to the health of their newborn. Unfortunately, scientists do not know much about the origin of colic, only that it effects your baby’s digestive system and causes your little one pain and discomfort. Doctors suspect that colic can be caused by the baby’s diet. Perhaps the formula isn’t settling well with your baby. Many formulas are soy-based and your baby could be allergic to soy ingredients. If you nurse your newborn, her body may be responding to something you ate. Whatever the case, you and your family need help and support.
Choosing whether to breastfeed or formula feed a baby is often a decision that should be carefully thought about to ensure that your baby obtains the necessary nutrients to help him or her grow. To expectant and new parents, this decision can be difficult especially if they aren’t knowledgeable about both options and don’t know how they’ll affect the health and well-being of their baby.
Below are a few factors that can help you understand both choices so that you can decide what is right for you and your baby.
My husband and I are in our second marriage. When we learned that we were expecting, we had mixed emotions because we are also an older couple which comes with additional concerns. At the time, I was 41 years old, and my husband is 12 years my senior. Although we knew pregnancy was a possibility, it was unexpected.
I can remember the day we found out we were having a boy. It was during one of my many routine ultrasounds early in the pregnancy. When my husband heard the words, “it’s a boy,” he squeezed my hand so hard I thought it was going to fall off. (smile) We’d both had girls from our previous marriages, and he had always wanted a boy. I was happy as long as the little one I was carrying was growing healthy.

Are you one of the millions of people who suffer from arthritis pain or joint pain? Do you take prescription medication to ease the stiffness and swelling in you joints? Are you looking for an alternative to manage your pain and increase your productivity and quality of life? If you said yes to any of these questions, then read on.
Physical therapy is one of the primary methods arthritis patients use to manage and alleviate their arthritic pain. Some of the different kinds of therapy include: occupational therapy, massage therapy, TENS therapy and basic physical therapy. Before you begin any kind of physical therapy treatment, consult with your doctor to determine if this will be beneficial for you. Once you have been cleared for treatment, you may want to ask your doctor, a friend, or a family member to recommend a professional therapist in your area. You may also want to look up therapists online and read their patient reviews.
Are you one of the many people who suffer from spinal stenosis? Are you a candidate for decompression surgery, but have reservations about having the operation because of the many risks involved? If you are a person who suffers from this debilitating disease, take heart, there is hope and help with physical therapy.
What is spinal stenosis? In layman’s terms, it is the compression of the spinal cord due to degenerative conditions in the vertebrae which tend to shrink the bone structure that surrounds the spinal cord. For example, osteoarthritis. The nerves in the lower spine become pinched, and the lower extremities are greatly affected. This condition typically causes weakness and numbness in the legs, sciatica, and leg pain in general, which usually interferes with an individual’s daily activities and quality of life.
Are you someone who is anticipating knee replacement surgery? Did you know that exercising and strengthening your knees and the muscles around them before your operation helps in your healing process after the operation? Some of the exercises you should practice before surgery are: leg raises (both on your sides and on your back), clamshells, chair push-ups, stomach kickbacks and standing on one leg to increase your balance and overall stability. These are ways you can build your body up before surgery, but what about afterward?
Falling among elderly people is very common, and it is the main reason why they suffer broken bones, especially hip fractures. As a matter of fact, you probably have a loved one or know of someone who has fallen. However, this is not a “normal” part of the aging process. Yes, it’s true that as we age, we lose bone density causing our bones to become more brittle and we lose strength in our muscles and hands; however, this does not usually cause an older person to fall.
So, what causes falls and how can they be prevented? Most falls are caused because the house is not properly modified to assist you as you go about performing your daily activities. Falls are also due to the fact that your balance is off. All it takes is the slightest thing to throw your balance off, and before you know it, you’re on the ground or the floor.
Are you like many people who are sedentary during the winter months because you don’t like being out in the cold? Maybe your arthritis or other ailments prevent you from going outside because the cold weather makes your joints more painful than usual. Well, take heart, you’re not alone. Many people don’t exercise in the wintertime and look forward to the onset of warm weather so they can exercise or play their favorite sport.
Some things to keep in mind before you get back into your exercise regime or activity:
Start out slowly and progress at your own pace.
Begin light exercises or stretches before spring arrives. Doing so will help prepare your body for a more intense workout or strenuous activity.
Always stretch before you exercise, run, or play ball. Stretching is key to preventing injuries.
There are military standards around the world when it comes to grooming. Wearing the same uniform and adhering to the same basic grooming standards, regardless of what military service you are in and what country you defend, promotes unity within a battalion. This principal applies to men and women who are new to the service as well as seasoned soldiers.
When a recruit first arrives to boot camp, paperwork is completed, a routine medical exam is given, and if the recruit is a male, his hair is cut using the zero blade on the trimmer. This is the lowest setting on the trimmer, and every male recruit receives the same cut. Maintaining short hair while in the military speaks unity and gives a neat, clean appearance. Hair is to be cut at or above the eyebrows as well. There are also safety reasons why men must have short hair in the military.
The military can be an excellent way to build your career. Many well-known people have made the military their career of choice. Some of them are General MacArthur and Rear Admiral/Commodore Grace Murray Hopper.
General MacArthur joined the military in the early 1900’s and graduated at the top of his class. He served in WWI and became a commanding Lieutenant General during WWII. MacArthur stopped the Japanese attack on New Guinea and secured that country for New Britain. In 1944, MacArthur returned to the Philippines to aid in their defense from Japanese invasion.
