(http://ow.ly/jiZk30ndWzg)

The temporomandibular joints connect your jawbone to your skull. In addition to providing your jaw with a full range of motion, your temporomandibular joints assist you in speaking, chewing, and yawning. Individuals who grind their teeth or bite their fingernails may also experience what's called a TMJ disorder. TMJ disorders are known for causing chronic jaw pain and stiffness.

Whiplash is a medical condition that occurs as a result of your head snapping back and forth at a rapid rate of speed. Typically, whiplash is the result of being rear-ended in an automobile accident. Unlike other types of soft-tissue injuries, symptoms of whiplash don't always appear right away. In some cases,they can take days or even weeks to arise.

What Are Stem Cells?
(http://ow.ly/W00j30ndWz9)

For lack of a better term, stem cells are the building blocks of life. Unlike other types of cells, stem cells are undifferentiated, meaning they can be converted into different types of cells in a laboratory setting. For example, a stem cell could be used as a blood cell, bone cell, or nerve cell. Because of their unique properties, stem cells offer incredible promise in terms of regenerative medicine. Early clinical studies suggest stem cell therapy can speed up the body's natural healing processes and address certain conditions that once required invasive orthopedic surgeries.

(http://ow.ly/aLH430ndWz8)

The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in your entire body. It runs from your lower back, over your buttocks, down your thighs, and into your feet. It's responsible for connecting your spine to your leg and foot muscles, but is also commonly responsible for lower back pain. This is especially true for individuals living with lumbar herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and bone spurs.

Be Careful Shoveling Snow
(http://ow.ly/Ghyb30ndWz7)

Here in Idaho, shoveling snow is part of the bargain, but that doesn't mean you should put your health at risk. Research shows shoveling snow increases an individual's' risk of muscle spasms, strains, sprains, and other more serious health problems. Prior to getting to work, warm your muscles up with light exercise. In addition, make sure to wear warm, breathable layers of clothing and always lift with your legs and hips, not your back.

(http://ow.ly/Fg6m50k6Bmo)

Peripheral neuropathy is the medical term used to describe permanent damage of the peripheral nerves. The peripheral nervous system is responsible for sending signals from your brain and spinal cord to other areas of your body. While the symptoms of neuropathy vary from patient-to-patient, telltale signs include painful burning, stabbing, or tingling sensations in the hands and feet, as well as muscle weakness, and difficulty balancing.
