Keeping Your Mind Young And Sharp
(http://ow.ly/ph8t50larWC)

It is always important to get physical exercise to keep you strong and healthy as you age, but did you know the same goes for your brain? There are many ways to keep your mind stimulated to keep you feeling sharp and more aware. Streaming music, for example, can greatly improve memory and overall mood. Your brain is working hard to make sense of the notes, melody and overall structure of the music. So put on some tunes and enjoy keeping your brain healthy!

Relieving Pain With The Spinal Cord Stimulator
(http://ow.ly/aloh30ngGDz)

The spinal cord stimulator is a medical device that helps to relieve chronic pain in the back, legs, and arms. It uses mild electric currents to mask or block pain signals sent from the nerves in your spine, which means you won't feel the pain even though the source of the pain still exists. At Rio Grande Pain Team, Dr. Dennis Slavin uses the spinal cord stimulator to provide chronic pain relief for patients suffering from osteoarthritis, herniated disks, degenerative disk diseases, sciatica, and much more. To book a consultation, call our friendly office at 956-255-1187 or use our online scheduler!

What Is A Herniated Disk?
(http://ow.ly/zTo830ngGDy)

A herniated disk most often occurs in the back or the neck, and is also called a slipped or ruptured disk. This can happen as a result of an injury, accident, or simply age-related wear and tear. The risk for a herniated disk increases with age, and other factors like smoking, improper lifting, excessive body weight, repetitive strenuous activities, or sudden pressure can all weaken the disk. Symptoms in the back and neck include pain, weakness, or "pins and needles" tingling or numbness.

How Does A Pinched Nerve Happen?
(http://ow.ly/o1vI30ngGDu)

A pinched nerve can be extremely painful and also cause a domino effect of other issues, such as sciatica, tennis elbow, or carpal tunnel syndrome. Pinched nerves are common in the neck, back, elbows, and wrists, though they can happen anywhere. They occur as a result of pressure or force is placed on an area of a nerve, which then triggers it to send warning signals like pain, numbness, and weakness to the brain. This compression can occur as a result of many reasons: sports injuries, repetitive actions, a herniated disk, bone spurs, arthritis, or even sitting with poor posture.

How Do Nerve Blocks Relieve Chronic Pain?
(http://ow.ly/jqDe30ngGDp)

A nerve block is a temporary or permanent procedure that disrupts specific nerve activity to help diagnose and treat pain. People are most often familiar with novocaine, which is a nerve-blocking agent that numbs the mouth during dental procedures. The purpose is to turn off the pain signals and cause a temporary loss of feeling in an area to better manage pain or control pain. There are different types of nerve blocks that can help diagnose and treat chronic pain, nerve damage or compression, back pain, and neck pain.

(http://ow.ly/6ash30ngGDo)

While everyone is at risk of developing back pain, athletes are especially vulnerable due to placing excessive strain on the back. It's essential to properly warm up and stretch before completing any kind of workout to help get the blood flowing and reduce your risk of spinal injury. If you play a contact sport, wear protective gear as appropriate to safeguard your body as well. Staying well-hydrated is another preventative measure that can help keep you safe. It's also a wise idea to prioritize rest and recovery days to give your body an essential chance to recuperate.

Coping With Chronic Pain
(http://ow.ly/4Mdi30ngGDk)

Chronic pain doesn't just pose physical difficulties: It can also be mentally and emotionally challenging. If you are suffering from chronic pain, you're not alone and there are a couple of self-care tips that can work wonders in helping you cope. It's important to note that stress worsens and intensifies chronic pain, so prioritize stress-reducing activities in your life (whatever that means for you!). Learning deep breathing or meditation techniques can be great ways to relax the body, which in turn eases the pain you feel. It's also helpful to find an exercise routine that works for you so you can enjoy the endorphin-boosting effects. Talk to your doctor about what kind of exercise might benefit you the most, and you'll experience an elevated mood and pain-reducing effects!
