What the Osteo Relief Institute Does for Residents of New Jersey with Osteoarthritis (OA)

Approximately one-fifth – that’s twenty percent – of United States citizens are disabled, by far the most popular cause being arthritis. Applying simple mathematical functions, of the 320-odd million people in the United States, about 60 million people experience troubles living on a daily basis, mostly due to joint pain and discomfort.


Osteoarthritis is a common form of arthritis that typically manifests itself in elderly persons. Shortened by many to OA – often called degenerative joint disease – this disease is characterized by a weakening and wearing-out of tissues in joints, causing a scraping sensation that ultimately results in constant discomfort, regular pain, and a lack of full mobility and range of motion.


Those that are overweight, obese, have family members with OA, of old age, and have experienced bone or joint injury in the past are especially exposed to the condition (AliveNewspaper). While there are no cures for OA, there are several ways to mitigate pain felt from the condition.

No matter how immobile someone is, they should exercise on a daily basis. Don’t try to take on too many tasks or reps at first, as stressing one’s bones or joints could result in worse problems. People with OA should stop smoking and do their best to lose weight. Staying still for over thirty minutes causes joints to mold together slightly, causing further pain – this means sufferers should move around just a little bit, at a minimum, twice every waking hour.


Osteo Relief Institute is a chain of medical facilities throughout the Garden State that helps treat osteoarthritis (https://thenewsversion.com/2017/09/osteo-relief-institute/). Their team of therapists and doctors are trained in dealing with OA and other bone and joint problems, one of many positive characteristics of Osteo Relief Institute.


Founded in San Diego, California, Osteo Relief Institute is privy to the market’s latest information on osteoarthritis and how to treat it. Staff at Osteo Relief Institute always tell patients of what’s wrong with them in easy-to-understand terms, rather than wooing them with complex information. Best of all, Osteo Relief Institute itself and its staff members are all board certified, utilizing nothing other than treatments and methodologies approved by the United States FDA.

Dr. Mark Holterman and ADA Collaborates to Curb the Rise of Diabetes Cases

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) announced a collaboration deal with Children’s Hospital Los Angeles that will see the two organizations jointly seek ways of countering the increase in diabetes amongst young people. The deal that was announced early September this year would involve some of the most experienced pediatricians including Dr. Mark Holterman of the University Of Illinois College Of Medicine. Mark has been on the forefront in the attempt to get more effective and improved medicine for treating type 2 diabetes as well as other chronic diseases.


According to the organizers, the collaboration will come up with a program dubbed Camp Power Up (https://angel.co/markjholterman). The program will bring together knowledge and evidence around type 2 diabetes, and then use it to formulate a curriculum that kids between the age of 8 and 16 can use to keep diabetes away. The curriculum will give an elaborate description of the foods kids of this age should avoid as well as the physical exercises that they should engage in to be safe. Dr. Mark Holterman realizes that teenagers are vulnerable to this type of diabetes due to their peculiar eating habits.

Mental Health Provider Diabetes Education Program



Besides the Camp Power Up, ADA organizes and takes part in other programs that seek to curb the rising cases of diabetes. Mental Health Provider Diabetes Education Program is one of the other programs that the organization sponsors, where Dr. Mark Holterman and his colleagues help people to fight diabetes. The program is a collaborative venture between ADA and the American Psychological Association and has been funded by the Helmsley Charitable Trust. Mark and colleagues look into ways that they can help people to navigate the diabetes management process by shouldering some of their psychosocial challenges. They achieve this by holding a face-to-face interactive session with patients for a 7-hour duration and following that up with an online course that takes not less than 5 hours.
