Security guard slips on grass, slides into Tiger Woods’ ankle

Posted by on Apr 15, 2019 in Blog | 0 comments

Source:  CBS Sports / April 12, 2018 A security guard nearly caused Tiger Woods to fall over at the 14th hole at the Masters tournament Friday when the guard slipped on the rain-soaked grass and slid right into Woods’ ankle. Woods tripped and did not fall, but limped away and winced while flexing his ankle for the next few seconds, CBS Sports reports. Woods’ first shot on the 14th hole went into the left rough into the trees, causing security to push the patrons back to give him room to try to hit the green on his second shot. As Woods and the crowd ran to watch where the shot would end up, a Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent rushing over to control the spectators slid into Woods’ right ankle. The shot had landed on the green, setting Woods up for a long birdie. He sunk the ball on the third shot, giving him the birdie on the hole. He finished the day at 6 under par, with the five leaders all at 7 under par. To continue reading please click here...

Daily foot care can prevent later problems

Posted by on Nov 3, 2018 in Blog | 0 comments

Source:  Endocrine Today What should a person with diabetes be doing on a daily basis to ensure good foot health? Hinkes: Neuropathy, vasculopathy and a faulty immune system affect the feet of patients with diabetes and can lead to needless and preventable foot pathology. People with diabetes on a daily basis should be visually and manually inspecting both their feet and their shoes. The foot inspection is to identify a crack in the skin or a locally red swollen or warm area. The shoe inspection is to identify any defect in the shoe itself and any foreign objects in the shoes. People with diabetes who notice dry skin on their feet or legs due to autonomic neuropathy should apply a urea-based moisturizing lotion. They also need to wear appropriate socks and shoes for their activities. They should practice preventive foot care to avoid developing foot ulcers from the combination of sensory neuropathy and mechanical, chemical or thermal trauma.

An Hour of Running May Add 7 Hours to Your Life

Posted by on Apr 13, 2017 in Blog | 0 comments

Source:  New York Times / By GRETCHEN REYNOLDS / APRIL 12, 2017 Running may be the single most effective exercise to increase life expectancy, according to a new review and analysis of past research about exercise and premature death. The new study found that, compared to nonrunners, runners tended to live about three additional years, even if they run slowly or sporadically and smoke, drink or are overweight. No other form of exercise that researchers looked at showed comparable impacts on life span. The findings come as a follow-up to a study done three years ago, in which a group of distinguished exercise scientists scrutinized data from a large trove of medical and fitness tests conducted at the Cooper Institute in Dallas. That analysis found that as little as five minutes of daily running was associated with prolonged life spans. After that study was released, the researchers were inundated with queries from fellow scientists and the general public, says Duck-chul Lee, a professor of kinesiology at Iowa State University and a co-author of the study. Some people asked if other activities, such as walking, were likely to be as beneficial as running for reducing mortality risks. Click here to continue reading...

Source:  Harvard Health Letter  Published: June, 2016 One in three people ages 65 or older will suffer a fall. It’s time to assess your balance and improve it. Many older adults focus on exercise and diet to stay healthy. But one of the worst offenders to health—poor balance—is often an afterthought. “I see a lot of older adults who are nonchalant about balance,” says Liz Moritz, a physical therapist at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Unfortunately, imbalance is a common cause of falls, which send millions of people in the United States to emergency departments each year with broken hips and head injuries. But there are many things you can do to improve your balance. The strategies below are some of the most effective. To continue reading this article please click here...

Finnish study finds links between early physical activity and future earnings, but only for boys. Source:  Runners World / ByAlex Hutchinson TUESDAY, MARCH 1, 2016, 9:58 AM The study, by researchers at several universities in Finland and published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, looked at data from 3,000 kids whose physical activity levels were assessed in the 1980s when they were 9, 12, and 15 years old. That data was then linked to Finnish tax records to determine their average income over the 10 years ending in 2010. Among men, the results were clear: Boys who were more active by one standard deviation went on to earn about 30 percent more as adults. That relationship remained robust even after controlling for various factors like family background (including parental levels of physical activity) and weight.
