Video: Is Exercise Really Good for You?


It is said that exercise is the doorway to the fountain of youth. Although it is sometimes very difficult and time-consuming, it is critical for cardiovascular health, strength, and mobility. This time on Late Night Health, host Mark Alyn confesses he is not overly fond of exercising, and we discuss how it can possibly be so beneficial for the mind and body. You can watch the video below or see it on our YouTube channel.

Hate Waiting at the Doctor's Office?




Have you ever been late to see the doctor and turned away, or showed up on time and asked to wait an unreasonably long period of time? Both Mark Alyn, host of Late Night Health, and I both agree that doctors being too busy to meet their patient is a pathetic excuse, and we talk about this frustrating phenomenon on the show.

Infograph on Concussions in Football

Concussions are a dangerous but sometimes subtle injury that can frequently occur in sports, particularly football. Much of the time, though a person is experiencing one, there may not be any obvious physical signs like scratches or bruising that would show it. When a person experiences a powerful blow to the head, the brain may knock against the skull and a concussion occurs when the brain is damaged. Although sometimes resting is enough to recover, concussions can last for weeks, affecting your vision, balance, and even your emotions.


Safety on the field is vital, especially when considering high school football concussions are on the rise. Check out the numbers from GlobeLifeInsurance.com.

Robert Ferguson Talks Lifestyle Habits on The Ricki Lake Show


My colleague and friend Robert Ferguson, MS, CN, CEO of Diet Free Life, works tirelessly as a certified nutritionist and coach. He recently appeared on the Ricki Lake Show:



In the video we meet Steve, who has lost 200 pounds and wants advice about how to teach those same lifestyle changes to his daughter Jordan. When asked about what kind of dialogue needs to occur in the family to encourage these changes, he gives excellent advice. The trick is to talk in terms of energy and metabolism, while removing judgement from the equation completely. This way, instead of seeking approval, kids can focus on building a sense of holistic health.


Communication in the home is the most important element in teaching a healthy lifestyle. Kids are information sponges and have the capacity learn good or bad habits — this is why it is so important for parents to explain why yo-yo dieting is not the way, and to show how good habits can not only change the way you look, but also the way you feel.

The Jennylyn Show - Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation



I love sharing what I know with others and discussing my patient care philosophy. I recently had such an opportunity with Jennylyn Gleave on The Jennylyn Show. We sat down together and discussed everything from the humble beginnings of my career as a 14-year-old hospital volunteer, to how the lifestyle of a professional athlete can impact overall health. I describe how the prescription drug abuse epidemic affects the doctor-patient relationship, and we discuss the issue of “biofeedback” and how emotional barriers can prevent effective treatment. Join us for an in-depth one-on-one.

Video: 5 Tips for Workplace Wellness Routines

Watch this video on YouTube


It’s no secret that it can be really difficult to maintain your fitness and overall health when so many of your days are spent in the office. Employees can develop carpal tunnel from repetitive wrist movements and a constant deficiency in circulation can cause a number of cardiovascular problems. There are, however, some great solutions to prevent discomfort and a deterioration in health while at work. Some of the best results come from employers that lead by example and implement programs such as a walking group or a push for ergonomics awareness.


A recent post on the Nuesoft Blog shares some great advice when it comes to workplace wellness. In the featured Neusoft video podcast, I talk with Lindsey Coates about how to engage in a routine that works for everyone as well as how to encourage good habits and comfort. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  1. Designate a coordinator to get everyone involved.
  2. Create a board that will centralize all wellness information (leaflets, routines, leader board – if you want to make it a competition, etc.).
  3. Walk as a group during lunch around the building or floor you are on.
  4. Sit on a yoga ball for an hour a day while working on the computer. When your hour is up pass it to another team member.
  5. Sign up as a group to do a 5k, softball team or other sporting activity. It’ll also promote morale!

When Doctors Have To Say No

Michael Jackson Doctors Say No Pain

Doctors are frequently given complicated medication requests from their patients who have chronic pain and insomnia.  It can often be challenging to help the patient understand when safety is being compromised and risk is being accelerated.  Treating celebrities is even more challenging for several reasons.  Most celebrities are quite charming and charismatic and at the same time live on the edge.  They push the limits between safe use of medication and the risk of death by often having multiple doctors prescribing overlapping medications.  Sometimes they have medications all mixed together and frequently are not clear about exactly what they are taking in terms of quantity and frequency.

 

Any doctor interacting with Michael Jackson would be challenged to assert the proper balance of risk and benefit for several reasons.  Many people feel like they knew Michael because he grew up in the public eye and because his lyrics were so personal.  Given his chronic history of pain and his pursuit of excellence, insomnia was an insurmountable challenge.  By entering into a game of Russian roulette with Michael it was only a matter of time before the combination of deadly agents proved fatal. 

 

Doctors have a professional obligation to maintain a healthy relationship with their patient that does not compromise the standards of medical practice such that every encounter becomes another spin of the roulette wheel.  Careful documentation of the amount of medication that celebrities are taking, and a clear understanding of other doctors that may be prescribing, is critical to undertake a treatment plan with honesty.  Today even testing urine, blood, or saliva is not unreasonable to provide a better understanding of what a patient, or even a celebrity, may be taking.  A patient should not see this type of testing or monitoring as insulting as they can lower the risk of death. These tools are becoming standardized in pain management and are supported by all doctors being trained today.  In my practice, celebrity patients are drug tested with the same frequency as ordinary patients.  Despite all of these measures, some patients are willing to put their lives on the line, even if they are a celebrity, because they are not happy living in pain.  Even though they can bring happiness to others, they want out at all costs.  When a physician becomes embroiled in this type of situation, whether it be Heath Ledger, Anna Nicole, or Michael Jackson, they are kidding themselves to think that they are doing anything else besides assisting in suicide.

A Gene For Chronic Pain?

Gene

There is a plethora of really helpful and fascinating scientific research on what causes chronic pain. Scientists are digging through the human genome in order to find what causes the chronic pain that is so disruptive to our lives. The Huffington Post recently released an article on some of the latest findings:

Scientists have found a gene that regulates chronic pain, a discovery that could potentially boost the effectiveness of painkilling drugs, according to a new study in the journal Science.

The gene, called HCN2, is located at the pain-sensitive ends of nerves, Reuters reported. Apparently scientists had known about the existence of HCN2 before, but didn't know what role it played in pain.

Researchers found that by removing this gene from the nerve endings in mice, they no longer felt chronic pain, BBC News reported. They measured their pain response by seeing how quickly they reacted to pain.

TED recently had Richard Resnick — the CEO of GenomeQuest, a company that builds software to support genomic medicine — give a presentation on the research his company is doing. GenomeQuest is on the hunt for the specific genes that produce chronic pain:

KGO Radio Interview: Dr. Lewis discusses recent Marathon Video Gamer Death

KGO Radio Interview: Dr. Lewis discusses recent Marathon Video Gamer Death

KGO recently interviewed me to discuss twenty-year-old Chris Staniforth, who reportedly played the game “Halo” on his Xbox for up to 12 hours at a time and died in May from deep vein thrombosis. This a condition triggered by sitting for extremely long periods of time. A coroner said that there was a blood clot that formed in Staniforth’s leg that moved up to his lungs to cause a fatal pulmonary embolism.


Deep vein thrombosis usually occurs among people who have to sit for long periods of time such as on a long-haul flight. With the advent of marathon video gaming, these clots can also form and prove deadly. Symptoms include swelling in the leg where the blood clot originates, followed by shortness of breath, chest pain and dizziness.


“After my research I saw there was no difference to Chris sitting at a desk on his Xbox and someone on a long-haul flight,” Staniforth’s father, David, told BBC News. In a statement, Xbox manufacturer Microsoft said that it encourages gamers to take breaks from playing, BBC News reported.

Ken McCoy Radio: Featuring Dr. Moshe Lewis

Ken McCoy Radio - Featuring Dr. Moshe Lewis M.D. (The Jet MD)

Ken McCoy recently interviewed me on his radio show. We had a great time discussing what pain management is, what pain management specialists do, and my philosophy regarding pain management in general. Click the play button on the audio player above to listen to our segment. Here’s an overview of what we talked about:




  • Blending the best of eastern and western philosophies to treat pain in the most effective way.
  • The holistic approach to treating pain: Diagnosing should never be done with a cookie-cutter. I get the story behind the pain, look at the patients lifestyle, how chronic is the pain, etc.
  • Avoiding drugs when possible: Many chronic pain disorders can be treated with topical treatments such as gel patches, ultrasound, electricity, acupuncture, etc. This greatly reduces the chance of organ damage and side-effects.
  • Trying to get patients to understand their medication: Medication is extremely important to many, but some forget what their medicine is supposed to be doing for them. Sometimes they no longer need to be taking it.

  • Ken McCoy and I also discuss how I got started as a pain management, physical medicine, and rehabilitation specialist. * We discuss how the holistic approach to treating patients and the future of medicine/health.

  • Why I find it important to raise public awareness of pain management.
  • Why your chronic pain doctor will be your most visited doctor; pain “management” requires specialists who can dedicate themselves to their patients.
  • Why pain management specialists are in high demand right now: We are living older, we are doing more than ever, everyone is personally effected by pain, celebrities find their expertise useful, and they often utilize a holistic approach to treating patients.
  • McCoy and I talk about my latest media appearances. We talk about my latest public service announcement regarding the dangers of RSI and arthritis and how to treat these painful disorders.
  • Insurance companies and their positive relationships with pain management specialists.
  • What some of my everyday patients look like (age, physical activity, etc.)

Taboo Talk #3: Staying Healthy on Father's Day

Taboo Talk Fathers Health

Click here to listen to Taboo Talk #3: Staying Healthy on Father's Day


This podcast was released on June 15th, so the Father's Day theme is a little outdated, but the information is 100% relevant to the everyday life of a father.

Dads taking care of themselves

  • They are very much appreciated. Parents live a stressful life and of course need some R&R and fun.
  • Always think about your body; start exercising by walking for 20-30 minutes. Find a lifestyle that supports exercise.

Barriers to Dads getting proper treatment (2:30)

  • Since Dads are busy, but they need to find the time to go to the doctor.
  • Older parents often don’t want to go to the doctors due to fear. Checkups are necessary and should be done at least once a year. Finding illnesses early is essential.
  • Dads like to take care of their cars and ensure it’s parts are working properly. They need to take of themselves in the same way.

What type of screenings do men need to take? (5:00)

  • Our cancers tend not to show up as well on scans. Diabetes and high blood pressure are all real issues. Diet has a large effect on Fathers. High calorie, high salt, and unhealthy foods can effect our blood pressure and diabetes.
  • At 40, Dads need to checkups often. Screening exams for prostate and colon cancer is critical after 40 years of age.

What can people do to prevent common pain ailments? (7:00)

  • Exercise is essential for preventing common chronic pain issues in our later years.
  • Glucosamine and Omega 3 are great for preventing joint pains.
  • Our body is a machine that needs constant tune-up and more energy that you can acquire by working out and exercise.

What to do when you have been diagnosed (9:00)

  • Overcoming those fears: find and work with doctors.
  • The health care system is fragmented and finding the right medical practitioners is essential. Going to the doctor should be painless and easy.
  • I encourage my patients to read and watch videos on their pain so they can be informed when going to the doctor.
  • Bring someone with you to do the doctor. They can remember and help with additional details.

Keeping your relationships healthy (12:00)

  • Give your kids and loved ones the time they need. It’s a challenge, but I have found it to be essential to keep relationships alive. 
  • Doing non-passive activities are important to connect with your kids (and nature, depending where you do these activities).
  • Encourage your kids to play sports; too much indoor-time is not healthy.
  • Don’t forget to show your love!

How can parents establish a relationship with a doctor? (16:00)

  • Use Angie’s List & Yelp, etc. to read doctor reviews.
  • Doctors are very busy due to insurance companies.
  • Private practice doctors tend to give a little more time to patients.
  • Age: Some doctors have increased wisdom due to age. They also tend not to run around so much.
  • Newer doctors also tend not to take on so many patients in the beginning.

Advice to Dads (19:00)

  • Men don’t get enough credit. Father’s Day exists to others can show appreciate to their Dads.
  • Dads need to love themselves and show love to everyone around them.
  • Live life to the fullest!
