It has taken a very long time, but I am finally getting back to a more or less normal life. I was working for one of the local tech companies and making really good money. One night I went out with some other guys and at about 2 AM we got into a fairly serious accident near the campus of San Jose State University. The accident was caused by a drunk pedestrian walking in front of traffic. The driver hit a parked car. I have been to a San Jose chiropractor and just about very doctor in this town since then. It did not really seem like that much of a collision at the time, but I was probably knocked out of my senses a bit at the time. Another car swerved in our lane to avoid the pedestrian and we swerved to avoid him, but we ended up hitting a light pole. At any rate I was pretty messed up below the waist. I was seated in the passenger seat and that was pretty close to the impact occurred. Continue Reading
I had called off twice in one week. My work does not have a liberal calling off policy. I hurt myself on a hike over the weekend. By the time Saturday evening rolled around, my back was aching bad. I had wrenched it like this before and it took weeks to heal. I knew I did not do any damage that would show up on an x-ray, but it hurt something awful anyway. My manager suggested I see his Bakersfield chiropractor for help. He was trying to help me not miss any more days. I was concerned about my job and would go to work no matter how much it hurt. Since I was not hurt on the job, I did not know what to do.
I got a same day appointment with the Bakersfield chiropractor when I explained my problem. Continue Reading
There’s no question about it: Our bodies change as we age. In turn, seniors have very different nutritional needs than teenagers, children, and even middle-aged adults.
Age-related changes can affect how your body processes food, which influences your dietary needs and affects your appetite. These are some of the changes:
Your metabolism slows down. This happens naturally, but it becomes more pronounced if you don’t get as much exercise as you should. When your metabolism slows, your body doesn’t burn as many calories, which means you need to eat less to stay at a healthy weight. As a result, the foods you eat should be as nutrient-rich as possible. Most women with average activity levels need about 1,800 calories per day. Men with an average activity level need about 2,300 calories each day. You’ll need fewer calories if you’re sedentary, more if you are very active.
Your digestive system changes. Your body produces less of the fluids that it needs to process food in your digestive system when you get older. These changes can make it harder for your body to absorb important nutrients like folic
People ages 60 and older who received free bus passes undertook significantly more physically active forms of travel — such as walking or taking the bus — than those who didn’t, a British study found.
Compared with older individuals who had not received a free bus pass, those who received free passes traveled more actively, regardless of whether they were of low or high socioeconomic status, according to Sophie Coronini-Cronberg, MSc, of Imperial College London, and colleagues.
The study also showed older individuals with free bus passes walked significantly more than those without a free pass, they wrote in the Sept. 20 issue of the American Journal of Public Health.
In England, a National Bus Pass was introduced for citizens ages 60 and older with limited access in 2006, and was expanded to include all local buses anywhere in England in 2008.
“A key purpose of the concessionary scheme is to increase bus use as a means of reducing social exclusion among older people and, in particular, to ensure access to travel among those on limited incomes,” Coronini-Cronberg
More than 90 million Americans have high blood pressure and/or diabetes. Both of these diseases are leading causes of a silent killer, kidney disease.
For older adults, this is especially critical as studies show an increase of diabetes with aging due to factors such as obesity, decreased activity, and insulin resistance. Because of medical advances in the treatment of diabetes, patients with the disease are living longer, thus leading to more diabetes-related complications, such as kidney disease.
Kidney disease can develop as a result of a number of factors such as genetics, blood sugar, and blood pressure. If a diabetic person can keep his blood pressure under control, he’ll have a better chance of avoiding kidney disease.
The startling thing about kidney disease is that it produces few symptoms until kidney function is practically gone. Actual symptoms aren’t specific—fluid buildup, loss of sleep, poor appetite, and upset stomach—so it is hard to diagnose kidney disease initially. Diabetics need to see their doctors regularly, because they can check blood pressure, urine—for protein—and the blood for waste

Physicians work hard to take good care of their patients. However, sometimes they make mistakes which can directly lead to serious consequences for the patient. At that point, the patient can choose to go through with a medical malpractice lawsuit in order to be compensated for the damages suffered. Between 15,000 to 19,000 medical malpractice claims are brought forth against physicians in the US each year. Here are some of the more common reasons for medical malpractice claims.
The most common causes of medical malpractice for inpatients involve mistakes made during medical procedures. These make up approximately 1/3 of all medical malpractice suits for inpatients. Surgical mistakes can involve silly and strange instances – such as leaving medical instruments in the body – to life-threatening and serious instances – such as amputating the wrong limb or causing excessive bleeding. Inpatients may also suffer damages as a result of anesthesia, which can interact with the body in certain ways. This is why anesthesiologists need to pay close attention to a patient’s medical history and continuously monitor patients while they are under anesthesia.
The most common cause of medical malpractice for outpatients involves misdiagnosis or a failure to diagnose, causing them to
