Physicians, Chiropractors and Physical Therapist Agree on a New Treatment for Low Back Pain
One of the most prevalent and difficult health conditions to treat in the physical medicine is low back pain. The difficulty in treating low back pain comes from the fact that there are numerous causes including herniated discs, bulging discs, degenerative discs, muscle spasms, facet arthritis, and sciatica. While the vast majority of low back problems are relieved in a few days, there are still millions of Americans suffering with severe and chronic pain. The number of opinions on how to treat low back pain are as numerous as the physicians trying to help the patients, until recently. The last few years has brought about a revolution in the treatment of low back pain where all types of healthcare providers agree on the best treatment.
Neurologist, orthopedists, family doctors, chiropractors and physical therapists are now all in agreement over the best therapy for low back pain, IDD therapy. IDD therapy refers to Intervertebral Disc Decompression. Intervertebral Disc Decompression is quickly becoming the treatment of choice for healthcare givers of low back suffers. The over whelming acceptance of Intervertebral Disc Decompression as the treatment of choice for low back pain comes from the extremely high rate of success found by the FDA. The FDA studies released noted that Intervertebral Disc Decompression was successful in a full 86% of all low back cases, without the need for surgery, injections, medication or pain. The FDA studies included patients with herniated discs, bulging discs, degenerative discs, facet syndrome, sciatica, arthritis and stenosis with most patients have several overlapping problems as seen by MRIs. Many of the patients in the study had sciatica and muscle spasms and still Intervertebral Disc Decompression gave significant relief to over 86% of the patients.

Disc degeneration with facet syndrome (arthritis) 8/10 1/10 5. Bulging discs L4-5, L5-S1 8/10 1/10 6. Disc degeneration with stenosis 7/10 1/10
These are some of the many patients results that have been achieved through Intervertebral Disc Decompression therapy at Monmouth Advanced Medicine in Freehold. These results are even more impressive when you consider that on average prior to trying Intervertebral Disc Decompression therapy. our patients tried; chiropractic care 72%, traditional physical therapy 76%, had spinal epidurals 44%, medication 100%, and spinal surgery 12% . Even when traditional treatments failed, Intervertebral Disc Decompression therapy offered dramatic relief.
Intervertebral Disc Decompression is so effective because it corrects the cause of the pain and not just the symptoms. A patient who receives Intervertebral Disc Decompression has a pair of harnesses placed around their waist and chest, a computer then generates a preset amount of decompression. The separation of the harnesses causes disc decompression and leads to negative pressure inside the disc, a vacuum is formed in the problem discs. The vacuum in the disc allows for the re absorption of herniated and bulging discs. The negative vacuum in a problem disc will also absorb water to help regenerate degenerative discs and help restore disc heights. Discs that have had the bulges, herniations, and degenerative changes reduced have more room for nerves, more room and movement for arthritic joints, have less spinal stenosis, and greatly reduced pain. Pre and Post MRI findings show that Intervertebral Disc Decompression therapy will reduce the size of disc herniations and bulges. Degenerative discs and arthritic joint spaces will increase in size allowing for more movement and less nerve irritation. The long term results achieved with the therapy are impressive.
To improve the long term results of Intervertebral Disc Decompression patients are instructed on how to properly stretch and lift to prevent future occurrences. While undergoing Intervertebral Disc Decompression therapy patients also receive traditional therapy to reduce pain, increase joint movement, and decrease muscle tightness. Patients who continue to do mild stretching and range of motion exercises daily have shown to have excellent long term results without exacerbations. The results achieved with Intervertebral Disc decompression therapy are unmatched and there are several additional benefits.
Intervertebral Disc Decompression has several other factors that have doctors and patients signing its praises. Intervertebral Disc Decompression is a form of physical therapy, so no medication, shots or invasive procedures are needed. An average patient will usually receive 24-32 Intervertebral Disc Decompression treatments with therapy over an 8 week period. A patient will start usually start to notice significant pain relief within the first 2-3 weeks. Patients are treated 3-4 times a week for 6-8 weeks without the loss of time from work or they are able to return to work faster than with traditional physical therapy. IDD therapy is totally painless so patients with even the most sever pain can receive treatment. The gentle and safe nature of the therapy has also made is useful for patients as young as 13 and as old as 90+. The high success rate and the quick results achieved with this therapy has also made insurance and Medicare reimbursement available. Patients praise the treatment for not just the pain relief the therapy offers, but for the return of more normal lifestyle.
Tom W., a school teacher stated," I began to experience intense excruciating pain in my low back often accompanied with burning, shooting nerve pains and constantly spasming muscles associated with sciatica. I sought immediate help at a hospital emergency room where a needle in my lower back was used to kill thee pain. The next four months consisted of many visits to my orthopedic doctor, a MRI, X-rays, 12 epidural blocks, prescription painkillers and 3 months of intense physical therapy, all to absolutely no avail???.Your Intervertebral Disc Decompression and physical therapy regiment has been a Godsend to me. The process was generally painless and often comfortable and relaxing for me. I sincerely never felt physically better?"

New Antidepressant Developments and Approvals
New antidepressant development, until fairly recently, was at best a random, and at worst a problematic and frustrating, process. Often, medications that were developed for one thing were discovered quite accidentally to have much more important therapeutic effects for a completely different disorder. It has been well described that some of the original antipsychotics were originally developed to assist in anesthesia, and some of the original new antidepressants were originally intended to be medications for tuberculosis or psychosis. New antidepressant development was done on a "chemical" basis; that is, guesses were made as to compounds that would be safe and effective based on chemical structures of established medications. This was very much a trial-and-error process, since very little was known about how these drugs worked and very little could be measured beyond actually giving them to a patient.

?Doc, my mouth is so dry all the time. What could be the problem??
Sjogren's syndrome is an autoimmune disorder ? a disorder in which your body attacks its own tissues because it thinks they are foreign. It prevents your body's exocrine (moisture-producing) gland from producing enough moisture for different areas of your body. This leads to chronic and lifetime dryness.

Rezulin Liver Failure Causes FDA to Recall Drug
Rezulin, a prescription type 2 diabetes drug has been withdrawn from the market by the FDA. New drugs have come out which offer the benefits that Rezulin provides but without such damaging side effects. Rezulin caused extreme damage to the liver that often resulted in liver failure. Liver failure was so widespread amongst Rezulin users that there has been progressively increasing encouragement for these people to have frequent liver function tests to monitor liver damage. In fact, Rezulin users are 1200 times more likely to have liver failure than non-users of the drug.
Treating Lazy Eye in Older Children
Many eye doctors believed until recently that if a child's vision was impaired because of a "lazy eye," the condition could not be corrected past the age of six or seven years. However, a study funded by the National Eye Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health, has found that amblyopia or "lazy eye" treatment can be effective in children age seven through 17. In fact, many of the 517 children studied at 49 eye centers showed improvement in their vision.
Ativan Side Effects Lawyer
The drug Lorazepan is marketed under the names Alzapam, Ativan, Loraz, Lorazepam, Intensol. Ativan is the safest form of this type of drug because it has less of an effect on the liver than other benzodiazepines, which means that a patient can take it in conjunction with other liver affecting medications like birth control pills, anti-abuse drugs, propranolol, and ulcer medications. However, Ativan also has dangerous side effects. If you or a loved one suffer from any of these harmful side effects, stop taking the drug immediately and contact both a doctor and a lawyer. Drugs are meant to improve your health and wellbeing and if Ativan threatens you or makes you sicker you have a right to take your injuries to court.

Lamictal Rash Lawyer
Lamictal, or lamotrigine, is an anti-seizure medication that has been prescribed to treat epileptic seizures for about 10 years.

Some researchers have suggested that Lamictal be the first-prescribed medication for bipolar patients suffering from more depressed versions of the disorder. Often antidepressants prescribed for bipolar disorder will trigger manic phases, increasing the rate of unhealthy mood swings, but Lamictal does not appear to have this same effect.
