Men’s Health Month
June is Men’s Health Month! This month is all about encouraging all the men in your life to take care of their overall health. Men’s Health Month is an annual campaign created to raise awareness of all the preventable diseases men face and to encourage early detection and treatment. The main goal of this month is to encourage men to take control of their health issues with proper screening and care. Did you know that on average, men die almost five years earlier than women? Part of the reason why this is true is because men are typically more hesitant to go to the doctor. Men can suffer from many preventable diseases which could be avoided by regular doctors visits. This month gives health care providers and individuals an opportunity to encourage men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for preventable diseases and injuries.

The Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care is a form of alternative medicine that is based on the idea that your body is capable of healing itself. Chiropractic care uses the help of specific hands-on manipulations from a trained professional to assist the body in its healing process. The theory is that with the proper alignment of the body’s musculoskeletal structure it should enable the body to heal itself without needing surgery or medicine. Manipulations are used to restore mobility to joints that have been restricted by tissue injuries that might have been caused by traumatic events, like falling or stressed muscles.

The Importance of an AED and Where to Place Them

The Importance of an AED and Where to Place Them
Data from the American Heart Association’s Heart & Stroke Statistics show there are more than 356,000 out of hospital cardiac arrests annually in the U.S. and nearly 90% are fatal. According to the research done by the National Safety Council, if there was an increase to the access of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs), then it could potentially save as many as 40,000 lives each year. To aid in decreasing the fatality of cardiac arrest, many states in the U.S. that have mandated AEDs in public buildings but private companies have been slower to adapt this concept to their own facilities. Cardiac arrest can occur suddenly and without any warning which is why OSHA encourages employers to provide AEDs in the workplace and other public places. Having AEDs installed in the workplace can bring peace of mind to the employees and the employers by providing life saving abilities to people with no training.
