Osteoporosis is defined as low bone mass or the deterioration of bone tissue. This can increase your risk for fractures of the spine, wrist, and hips. Fractures can occur all over the body, but these areas are where bone mineral density declines first, and most rapidly. How do we prevent our bones from becoming porous and what puts a person at risk? Research has proven that weight bearing exercises will build bone density through the spine and hips. This means exercising with weights while standing, and walking or jogging. Exercises done on the hands and knees will also target the upper...

Amour, a heartbreaking and unflinching movie is painful to watch but poses the universal question: As the people we love decline, how do we deal with the inevitable suffering? Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke tackled this subject and won the 2013 Academy Award for best foreign language film. The leads, veteran French actors Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva, play a vital Parisian couple in their 80s whose happy marriage gradually unravels.

Do you sometimes feel like time is getting away from you? I make list after list oftime management tips what I want to accomplish each day – and often get a large chunk completed - but never seem to get everything done. Now that I make my lists on my PDA, it's easier to just change the date and roll the reminders over to the next day. Yet the sense of satisfaction that I feel when I do finish a project is a great motivator to become more focused so that I can attain more of my goals each day.

While we can't stop the clock, we can learn how to manage our time better this year. Here are some strategies I'm going to put in place myself. Maybe you'd like to try them on for size too:

In the early years of  living with auto immune diseases,  I  felt completely out of step with people my age.  I had more in common with my grandparents and their friends than other 20 and 30 somethings.chronic illness among the young and career

At 29 and married one month,  I was bedridden and lost vision in one eye (multiple sclerosis).  That was our first year of married life. Over the years, my kids' activities and physical work required left me in a puddle.

The following decades,  I worried on a daily basis about how symptoms would affect me and left more than one good job because I couldn't keep up.

Being young and unwell too often leaves you feeling hopeless because you haven't had the chance to see what you can do in this life but here's my take on what to do.

It has been almost 2 years since becoming a licensed Physical Therapist Assistant, and I can honestly say I LOVE the career I have chosen! There are several reasons why I am happy to go to my job every day, but mainly I enjoy the relationships I build with each patient. I am teaching them something new with every visit and trying to make a difference in the way they feel. But, do they have any idea what they are teaching me? physical therapy and patient treatment

With each patient I build on my relationship skills and gain more insight into the dynamic I share with each individual. I am intrigued by how people learn and understand and it is fun figuring how to connect with patients on that level.
