    Clinics

    Health insurance can be a tricky thing to understand and to make the most of. It costs money each money, your appointments cost money, your medications cost money and any tests done cost money. Eventually, you hope to reach your deductible each year so that things get a little bit cheaper when you?re sick or injured. It can be difficult to find out the best way to utilize your health insurance so that you get the most benefits for the least amount of cost to you whether that be money, time or energy spent trying to get your injury or illness resolved.

    You probably think making an appointment at your normal doctor?s office is the best way to address any illness or injury, whether you have been sick or injured for a while or it is a completely unexpected issue that needs to be addressed. That is not always the Continue Reading

  • A Beginner’s Guide to Liposuction

    Breast augmentation

    Liposuction is a surgical procedure that has been popular throughout the years. Data was collected in 2015 concerning the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures. The results of the previously mentioned study showed that liposuction and breast augmentation were the top two procedures.

    First and foremost, liposuction is not a surgery to promote further weight loss. You could be so happy with liposuction results that you push yourself to lose weight. However, liposuction is not an effective treatment for permanent weight loss. If you’re looking for a cosmetic procedure to give you drastic weight los Continue Reading

    In today’s extremely busy and often complicated world, it might come as a surprise to many couples how much good something as simple as a couples getaway can do for their relationship. People travel all over the world for business and many of them never know how a trip away with their partner can literally transform their relationship into something they thought had long since passed away if it was even there in the first place.

    To begin with, four out of every ten travelers feel more romantic when they are away on a trip. For those who think that something oddly named a “staycation” will strike that same kind of spark that a trip to the Bahamas or some other location will do, the truth might be found to be something entirely different.

  • Are You Injured Enough For the ER? You May Need an Urgent Care Clinic Instead

    Urgent care services

    Medical care is an essential part of our culture. Flu vaccinations and other preventive care aside, it is the emergencies that cause stress. Dialing 911 in a crisis situation makes sense, and most people have the presence of mind to know the role they need to play in such an instance. But what about those times when the injury does not warrant an ambulance, and yet it’s not a problem that should be left for the morning? Medical urgent care may be your answer.

    You could head to an emergency room, and deal with triage. If an injury or illness threatens life or limb, by all means go to the emergen Continue Reading

  • CPR Training Why You Need To Take It Seriously

    Cpr classes tinley park

    More and more jobs in this day and age require people to have a CPR license. Of course, anyone in the medical field, no matter how low-level the job, should have their CPR licenses in case of emergency. CPR licenses are also recommended for people working in very physical fields, like sports or even manufacturing. Many parents seeking babysitters rightfully want the person they’re paying for childcare to be capable of performing CPR, and thus lots of people take CPR classes before becoming babysitters or nannies. With that being said, a lot of people still don’t understand what CPR requires, and what the classes entail. They might be slack about getting recertified, thinking that they know all they need to know — or they might avoid taking CPR classes in the first place, simply because it seems l Continue Reading

  • Stay Migraine Free

    Scientific diet

    A migraine headache can be debilitating. According to the Migraine Research Foundation more than 90% of sufferers are unable to work or function normally during their migraine. For many individuals, this has become an accepted way of life and they deal with the pain as best they can using pain medications and preventative medications. Over half (54%) of migraineurs experience one or more attacks per month and 13% claim one or more attacks per week. Beyond the burden of a migraine attack itself, having migraine increases the risk for other physical and psychiatric conditions. Migraines can cause depression (it is 3x more common in people suffering from severe headaches)and this can negatively affect relationships with friends and family too.

    If you are looking for a non-pharmacological approach that sticks wi Continue Reading

  • The Importance of Activity As We Grow Older

    Homes

    As our parents grow older we worry about if they are happy and healthy. We want them to be because they raised us and took care of us when we were small and weak. Its only fair that we take care of them as they grow and ironically become smaller and weaker. That said, the key towards making sure that our parents are happy and healthy is to make sure that they stay as active as possible.

    Being active is actually the key to being happy in our older age. For instance, studies have found that senior citizens in their 70s or later feel less lonely. The numbers showed that only 12% felt lonely when they were staying active. Conversely, 22% of elders who weren’t as active felt lonely.

    The reason for this, included in the need to remain physic Continue Reading

  • The Explosion of Proton Therapy

    Proton therapy for cancer

    The way that we treat cancer is going through a massive change, and hardly anyone?s heard about it. Proton therapy, a new, highly targeted form of radiation therapy, has become so a sought-after that there simply aren?t enough clinics to accommodate the demand.
    While proton therapy has been around as early as the mid-nineties in the US (and even further back in Europe), it has only recently begun to become widely known, if it is still not widely available.
    What separates proton therapy from the older, more conventional forms of radiation therapy is the ability to zero in on a small number of targeted malign cells while doing comparatively little damage to the surrounding cells. This makes it an ideal procedure for people with cancer in sensitive areas, and is a great method of eye, spinal c Continue Reading

  • How Safe is Your Prescription Pharmaceutical?

    The pharmaceutical industry is one of the most important industries in our country. The existence of today?s pharmaceuticals corrects medical conditions, solves bacterial problems, and keeps medical symptoms under control. Yet, the same pharmaceuticals that provide a positive benefit to so many people?s lives can also have a negative effect. For this reason, the government sets high regulations and standards on the way that pharmaceutical companies do business. The following aspects of the medical pharmaceuticals are important.

    Does the drug do more good than bad?
    In some medical conditions, the negative side effects of a drug are worth it, if they are correcting life changing medical symptoms. Sometimes, taking the bad with the good is necessary. When some medi Continue Reading

    Importance of mental training for athletes

    It’s hard enough trying to complete your studies and train on a daily basis without mental health tripping you up.
