Best Neuromuscular Trigger Point Massage in Los Angeles: Pain Behind the Eye May Be Pain Under the Ear.
Most doctors won’t hesitate to tell you that (non-migraine) pain behind one eye is a result of some temporary condition — sinus inflammation being the most common culprit. If you have chronic pain in that area, they often move directly to a much more dire suspect — multiple sclerosis, for example. But according to the recently-published treatise Chronic Headaches, the solution might well be a simple trigger point buried in the neck under your ear, in a muscle called the splenius cervicis or sternocleidomastoid. A short visit to a qualified Neuromuscular/Trigger Point Massage Therapist might be exactly what you need to relieve that eye pain.

Pain Management in Los Angeles: Office Chairs and Spinal Posture.
Does your office chair include any features designed to improve your spinal posture while sitting? Researchers X-rayed 28 volunteers while they stood up straight, bent forward, and sat in four chair conditions: regular chair, a chair with lumbar support, a chair with seat pan tilt, and a chair with a backrest for scapular relief. While the investigators didn’t find any one feature to be statistically superior with respect to minimizing spinal flexion (which places stress on the back, potentially contributing to an injury during periods of prolonged sitting), they did report that the seat pan tilt feature resulted in significantly improved pelvic posture, which may benefit the musculoskeletal system. A Neuromuscular Massage Therapist’s evaluation may include an assessment of a patient’s posture, as poor ergonomics may contribute to his or her condition.

Mental Attitude: Dementia on the Decline Among Older Americans.
An analysis of data from the Einstein Aging Study indicates that today’s older adults are less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia than those from the previous generation. Experts suspect this decrease may be due to efforts aimed at reducing cardiovascular disease, which studies show may play a role in the development of some neurodegenerative diseases.

Health Alert: Obesity Rates Holding, But Still High.

Diet: Removing Sugar from Diet Leads to Less Fatty Liver in Kids.
Fatty liver disease among adolescents has more than doubled over the past twenty years and is strongly linked to an increased risk for type 2 diabetes and other metabolic diseases. In a new study, researchers found that a nine-day diet that cut out fructose—a common form of sugar found in soft drinks, fruits juices, and most processed foods—significantly reversed the buildup of liver fat in children and teens. Lead author Dr. Jean- Marc Schwarz explains, “Our study clearly shows that sugar is turned into fat, which may explain the epidemic of fatty liver in children consuming soda and food with added sugar. And we find that fatty liver is reversed by removing added fructose from our diet.”
