Cervical Spondylitis: Who All Are At Risk?

Identifying people who are at risk of spondylitisCervical spondylitis is the chronic deterioration of the bones and intervertebral discs of the spinal cord. It is a medical condition that happens as the result of inflammation in the vertebral joints. Usually, the symptoms of cervical spondylitis do not appear in anyone at a young age. It is only after the person touches the age of 40 does this ailment progress. Out of both the genders, men are more prone to suffering from it and that also from an early age.

A study by the Mayo Clinic states that this affliction is ‘present in more than 90 percent of people over the age of 65 although some have it in such small degrees that they never experience symptoms’. Cervical spondylitis negatively impacts different parts of the body, such as axial skeleton, peripheral joints, and extra-articular structures. However, this ailment has rarely left any person crippled or disabled. Read more

Planning to Pop a Painkiller? Read This …

Painkillers and their side effectsThere’s no doubt that painkillers are the best way to beat chronic pain on its head.  You have muscle spasms, you pop a pill. Your neck hurts, you pop a pill. You have a headache, you pop a pill. In short, there’s a pill for every little ache and pain we suffer from, and all of us are guilty of reaching for those pills  way too often.

Although it’s become second nature to take painkillers (also commonly known as opioids) every time your body aches, it’s a practice that is frowned upon greatly by doctors and fitness experts. Their biggest concern is that very often people are ignorant of the side effects these pills can have on your body, especially when consumed over a long period of time.

Don’t believe us? Here are some common side effects of indiscriminate use of opioids.   Read more
