Best Neuromuscular Trigger Point Massage for Headache Pain: The Classic 'Base of the Skull-to- Behind the Eye" Headache.
The Journal of Manual and Manipulative Therapy released a significant study into the source of "behind the eye" headaches a few years ago, and they found that a minor majority (just over half) of behind-the- eye headaches that come with matching ache in the base of the skull are associated with active trigger points in the suboccipital or splenius cervicis muscles — the muscles in your neck that stretch and contract the length of your neck, and let you tip your head from side to side. A qualified neuromuscular/trigger point massage therapist should be able to release such a trigger point in minutes, and 'train' the muscle to stay released over the course of a few weeks, making the headaches a memory quickly and easily.

Best Pain Management Clinic in Los Angeles: Can Reducing Pelvic Tilt Angle Reduce Back Pain?
In this case study, a 56-year- old woman with severe lower back pain and excessive lumbar lordosis performed an exercise three times a day aimed at reducing the angle of her pelvis in relation to her spine. After two weeks, her anterior pelvic tilt angle had decreased, resulting in a 50% reduction in her lower back pain. When examining clients, Neuromuscular Massage Therapists look at the whole person, as many times factors outside the immediate area of complaint—like their pelvic tilt angle—may contribute to the patient's pain and disability.

Rates of drinking and alcohol abuse are on the rise in the United States (US).

Exercise in Los Angeles: High-Intensity Interval Training May Reverse Frailty Among Seniors.
Investigators studied the effect of a ten-minute exercise program that included several high-intensity intervals on older, frail mice over the course of sixteen weeks and found that these mice experienced dramatic improvements in grip strength, treadmill endurance, gait speed, and muscle mass compared with mice in a control group. If these findings apply to human subjects, then introducing seniors to this form of exercise may help them remain active and independent for longer.

Wellness/Prevention: Kids Need Supervision While They Are Near Cars.
Unsupervised children playing on or near a road or driveway is a recipe for injury. To prevent a tragedy, Safe Kids Worldwide suggests the following: walk around your car before you leave to make sure there are no children nearby; check for toys, bikes, or pets near your car, which could attract children; and hold the hands of small children when you're in a driveway, crossing the road, or in a parking lot.
