Injuries and Emergencies

  • Massage Therapy for Back Pain
    More than half of American adults seek medical treatment for back pain at some point in their lives.
  • New Parents...Sore Backs
    When it comes to parenting, back injury is an occupational hazard. New mothers, whose backs have just endured the stresses of pregnancy and birth, are particularly vulnerable. So are taller fathers and mothers who must bend farther than others to scoop up tots from playpens.
  • Offsite Health Care Options
    Many forms of emergency treatment take place outside the emergency room, and even many surgeries are performed in locations other than a hospital operating room.
  • Planning Ahead for Travel Emergencies
    Whether you're headed for the beach, the outback or the big city for your summer vacation, you should add a few more items to your to-do list.
  • Protecting Your Child from Sports Injuries
    Most children depend on recreational and school sports for exercise and fun. But too many young athletes suffer needless injuries.
  • Put a Stop to Nerve Injuries Called Stingers
    Stingers occur when the shoulder and head go in opposite directions, the head is moved quickly to one side, or the area above the collarbone is hit.
  • Save That Tooth!
    If your child gets a tooth knocked out, find it if you can and treat it with care. See your dentist as soon as possible.
  • Self-Treat? Or See a Doctor?
    When you’re sick, knowing whether you should treat yourself at home or see your doctor can save you time and hundreds, possibly thousands, of dollars a year.
  • Spinal Cord Injury
    A traumatic injury to the spine can cause a bruise, a partial tear, or a complete tear in the spinal cord. The most common sites of injury are the cervical and thoracic areas.
  • Sports Injuries: When to Call the Doctor
    Sports injuries can be either acute traumatic, which require immediate medical care, or chronic overuse injuries.
  • Sprained Ankles Need Attention
    When you sprain an ankle, one or more ligaments on the outside of your ankle become stretched or torn.
  • Sprains, Strains, Breaks: What’s the Difference?
    If you've sprained your ankle, you know what pain is. But maybe that "sprain" was a "strain" or possibly even a "break." The amount of pain in each case can be virtually equal.
  • Taking Care of Cuts and Scrapes
    Cuts and scrapes are everyday occurrences, and most can be safely treated at home. Knowing how to clean and care for a cut yourself and when to seek a doctor’s care can help reduce infection and speed healing.
  • Taking Care of Head Injuries
    The most common causes of head injuries are auto and motorcycle accidents, falls and violent assaults.
