Exercise is Not Just for the Young
Few things benefit the body more than maintaining physical fitness. While doctors routinely recommend exercise for younger patients, we're realizing how important it is for our older patients as well. Regular exercise, even in one's senior years, can still reduce your risk of a number of health conditions, particularly heart attacks, strokes, and falls. It also may be one of the few things to slow the onset of dementia.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome common repetitive injury condition
I see a number of people who suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel is a very common condition, often related to repetitive injury at home or in the workplace. It is one of a number of repetitive strain injuries or "RSIs."

Carpal tunnel symptoms usually include numbness and/or pain in the hand and wrist that may extend up into the arm, shoulder or even neck. The numbness, tingling or pain frequently wakes people during sleep.

Start of school increases incidents of 'pink eye'
Now that school is back is session and child day care services are in full swing, the incidence of "pink eye" is starting to pick up. This is a very common condition that accounts for over 30 percent of patient visits for eye problems.

Conjunctivitis is the medical term for "pink eye." The conjunctiva is the continuous connective tissue membrane that covers the inside of the eyelids. It then folds back on itself to cover the front of the eyeball up to the edge of the cornea (where the white part of the eye meets the iris or colored part of the eye).

Advance directives can help when making end of life decisions
Health care at the end of life has been a popular discussion topic over the last couple of years. It has come up for discussion as we continue to search for ways to deliver compassionate, more cost effective care. Excellent books such as Dr. Atul Gwande's book, Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End, have also popularized the topic.
