The Future of Medicine

 

It is true to say that the future of medicine depends on those who are currently studying it! The medical professionals of tomorrow are still being molded into the life-saving people they will become and they have a great deal of innovation to bring to the table. Medicine is a field that is constantly changing as new techniques, procedures and medications are discovered and invented.

 

Common Orthopedic Feet Problems

 

The feet are some of the most densely packed parts of the body, containing 33 joints, 26 bones, and over 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments. The chance of problems arising in the feet are quite high, whether through the tolls of general living or through genetic predisposition.

World Osteoporosis Day

Tomorrow people around the globe will observe World Osteoporosis Day. This is a day to recognise those who are afflicted with this condition and to raise awareness of the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of it. The day is put together by the International Osteoporosis Foundation with various activities taking place in over 90 different countries. The day itself has been happening since 1996, first started by the National Osteoporosis Society in the UK with the International Osteoporosis Foundation taking over the following year. 

Each year the day takes on a special theme and this years theme is ‘Serve Up Bone Strength’. Themes in past years have included awareness, early detection, bone health, risk factors, quality of life, nutrition and more! 

Exercise for Arthritis!

 

Arthritis is one of the most common conditions that an orthopedic doctor will come across. It is unfortunately inevitable for a large number of people and, although it can be treated, there is not a definitive cure. Chronic pain is one of the most severe side effects of arthritis and is most often treated with strong painkillers. However, this can actually become a problem in itself as the damage these medications do to the body over time can be significant.

Junk Food and Bone Health

 

The connection between junk food and poor bone development has been researched extensively with reports being presented in the popular journal, Osteoporosis International. The research has suggested that those who grow up within close proximity to several fast food establishments are more likely to consume junk food, and they have discovered a link between the presence of these food choices in the diet and poor bone development.
