"Satisfaction with. Medical care which is linked to reimbursement rates for Medicare Medicare. Awesome was actually make money. You know opens up a lot of doors because it shows this other sort of big picture part because right now, when we do that kind of in hospital work, we don't have any long-term link because we have proven anything. So we we sort of offer you know the in hospital mediation between here's the science. Now, we're going to refer you on because we know that the science is good right and then. So it gives it gives evidence that there's something about hearing Karen that's worthwhile to pursue different ways. So it opens up a law on the initiative were air but then what really exciting actually is. Not, hearing it act happened and it has gone into effect yet but you know we're we're somewhere near it. There's complementary aspects. The mode that hasn't occurred yet part of that is. We need to think about Medicare reimbursing for I mean impart hearing aids for people with severe profound moss especially because the OTC devices technically will only be for mild and moderate. And we need to think about the fitting and the Oral Rehab in the counseling goes around this and. Win The congressional budget. Office. which literally does this every year people don't realize this is a regular thing. There's all these bills that come in and say, we're going to cover hearing aids right and then they have to score the bill. And hearing AIDS are only a loss right now because there's no proof that hearing aids do anything for healthcare. Prove, that hearing is. delay the rate of cognitive decline and could delay the time on set dementia. For example, even if it's just a few years, you can turn that into a health economic analysis and you could actually show dementia is so costly that hearing aids would be a cost effective thing and then Medicare covering hearing aids would save carrying the long run which I think all of us sort of think about this and we're like, yeah, that makes much sense. But without evidence again, the Congressional Budget Office says, okay. If thirty million adults in the US have hearing loss. And eighty percent of them don't have hearing aids. We assume they're all GONNA get hearing aids. It's just a massive billion dollar cost to them that they're not really gonNA eat it makes every bill look back but now we open up outside. So politically, we open up a real chance to have a comprehensive hearing plan in the US that we have otc you various entry points we have the hospital based screening entry points, and then we have long-term coverage support to maximize utilization, which that's the real goal I think in the long run is like a holistic. You. I. Always think of it as like a spiderweb that all works together instead of right now, where we sort of had these disjointed efforts that nothing is really working in a rural real operating in silos and I wanna see it all in one place which the research in a weird way sort of turns the key and let's all that sort flow. That was maybe the most insightful like five minute clip I. Think I might need to clip that because that was. Your. So spot on there I mean. Everything that you guys are doing at Johns Hopkins I knew. Sort of inherently like this is really really really important and you just articulated why and I like I'm going to be thinking about this after this conversation for a while because you're so spot on there. I mean. You know with regard to OTC with regard to Medicare..

It might look like they're technicians better but is it really better or did they just get? To the test materials and better access meant a better score. Because in reality cognition doesn't really improve like over time we generally, as we age just like hearing, there's not really a mechanism where it suddenly gets better than gets worse, right? So. To think about it. We're really not thinking about like you know improving we're just protecting from this luke declined, and so the achieve trial embedded within eric also recruited. Participants.

We're like almost a thousand it was power for only eight, hundred fifty but we went beyond that. And ended up recruiting. About one hundred, fifty more just. To be safe that was just the maximize the robustness of the analyses. then. After people are in emigrants study, they either received best practice hearing care or they receive sort of a healthy agent equivalent and. What the healthy is your quivalent looks like is you sit down with a certified nurse. And you talk about diabetes physical fitness. Nutrition.

Woman killed in rare shark attack off Maine coast
"Shark attack in recorded history. Nobody beats Madison, Rogers tells us the victim was a woman who was swimming off the coast of Harpswell, north of Portal Julie Dim Pierrot.

"Don't land but it's different leg but are they gonna care their life while I'm in my I'm in the mid nineties and I throw in the mid fifth and I throw in the mid fifty s on the Meadville. So they're okay with it right but if I have a kid who is in that upper eighties mid mid to upper forties on the MED ball. And that rigidity is going to get him into those nineties. You Bet that kid is going to be working on. That thing will last night when he's in the gym and he's going to be coming to me and we encourage them we you want them to go out go research. Go fine more. How this Med ball drill started one of my kids started challenging me on certain things as great? Let's you know. Let's let's get better you when I bought let's get better and And it led to to this program but I I would say that for some of them. It's probably the the reason. They're reaching their peak for others. They may not need it as much right now but no matter what we're always talking to him about the foot hits the can't continue to move so as long as that's happening. Okay Cole. That intention attention there that it's no matter what getting stiff. It's a stiffer. Spring hits becoming wherever you are. Now it's going to be stiffer of a spring in four months. Yep Awesome well sounds good. Well Hey I think we covered all the questions on that today. I'll I'll definitely I know you have you city of videos on Youtube so I'll make sure that they get in the show notes of this show. I think it compliments at all really well in just talking about this stuff. I just think it's such an awesome way to specifically improve while also taking load off that injury in inducing load off a player for four months. it was awesome talking to you about today. I appreciate it man Be on the lookout to try and do Steadier to in in the coming months on this with a couple of the hospitals that we work with And then also we're going to be doing some studies which I hope workout out on a grip strength and finger strain In Intra game so while they're pitching Like when they come in from any inning. 'cause I would love to do away with a pitch Gal using grip as a cryptic drops. Then you're done night. Exact when when the forearm muscles give out now if it is a if it is sensitive enough right the finger tenzing that is sensitive enough to tell me when the foreign muscles are fatiguing than that's it and maybe maybe over time we can see. Hey if you have a ten point drop from your standard just like we do at a concussion right like we'll get a pre screen and if we dropped ten points from there at any point in the game you have to come out And it would just be really cool. I know that's Lafayette's off the NFL long-term but the hope would be that we can get to a point where we don't have just a pitch count. Yeah that's awesome stuff that keep me updated. I'm excited to hear that I feel like that could be and I don't keep going and the show but I feel like that could be something that could be a lot of things to a lot of skills as soon as skills even it's not even maybe forum specific it's just a nervous system measure to issues that starts to fall off grip strength falls off and I love it man I keep up the I'm excited to hear the results of the we'll do appreciate it so much.

"If you head over to our website so I was completely blown away by Knicks Not only just his general knowledge background. Why he was doing this training method but just going into the just going into the progressions and what he's trying to get out of each exercise and giving the players arms break and building? This very are unique but highly specific other than the elbow in harm method of improving baseball pitchers velocities. And it really to me. It was the Pity me of special special strength the epitome of this bridge between strength and sports skill or the gym in sports skill and at at at the end of the day. If you work with athletes it really is all about those things that transfer to onfield performance. You've heard it from a number of our guests and I felt like the work that Nick and the work that nick is doing is just really the epitome of that so on the show today Nick is GonNa go all into that medicine program. The principles behind it the progressions and how the medical speeds as correlating to fastball speeds. And the the use of that as a key performance indicator were. This show doesn't doesn't just go only to baseball pitchers. There's a lot of other dynamics in here. Naked concepts using general physical preparation methods in the weight room for rotational national athletes. In general throwing athletes in general he goes into addressing pasta issues with throwing athletes Pasta and balances and something. He's going to go into that definitely definitely very important for any throwing athlete. A pitcher javelin thrower is the action of the front leg. The break leg of the block legs. So he's going to get into that but that that league action is universal. It happens in a lot of different sports skills. You're going to see it as he as he's GonNa Mention. You also see it in a lacrosse throw. And it's this is something that even if you don't work with a pitcher specifically these are important principles that we need to know when we look at athletes and we are assessing their skills and abilities and what we can do to make them better her knicks also gonNA start out the show by talking about the factors that are contributing to the massive increases in injury baseball and again how his how his program of his doing something about that taking a lot of throwing away from these athletes it for four months outta the year so all that being said this was a really fun. Show a highly detailed tale show. Let's get onto episode one. Eighty three with Dr Nick. Surreal Nick Welcome to the show. Thanks for being here today man. Yeah I really appreciate it. Thank you for having me. Yes yeah so I. I enjoyed talking to coaches from all walks of the field. I know a lot of a lot of what you're doing is in the world of baseball and throwing and because you tell me a little bit more about yourself What you are doing athletes who work with and how you got there? Sure absolutely so I am A. I have my Undergrad. The extra science my master's in science as well there was a small focus in Sports psychology there and then I went and got my doctorate in Spurs for psychology during the Masters With my partner we opened up athletes warehouse. It's a seventeen thousand five hundred square foot training facility. Hey we trained athletes from an array of different sports with a focus. Yes absolutely in baseball softball. And we train a large number of Girls Zain guys across as well so one of the things are really intrigued. Me about what you're doing is a and it's always the theme of this. podcast is just what things that make the end result better. And I know there's always going to be limitations in just a general strength only mindset and so I'm excited to get into some of the specifics off but before we get to that portion specifically I know baseball is notorious for just massive injury risks and I think like Tommy John Surgery up exponentially in the last decade to and and everything that goes with that so from your perspective mechanics overtraining no time off. What later what are some things that are contributing to that? Oh I think the the game has changed a lot right. So we're we're really looking for velocity and we're seeing that that increases in will mean decreases in batting average However I think there's a lot going out at the younger ages that I think it missed because we really focus on major league baseball right we we look at always pro level of this The demands to get recruited. And how we get get recruited right now Put a tremendous amount of stress on a young pitchers are right. There are almost told to. You're GonNa go this again and you're gonNA throw all out which you're gonNA throw all out on Saturday you're gonNA throw but they don't worry it's only going to be twenty to thirty pitches and they're gonNA throw all out again on Sunday and it's going to be twenty to thirty pitches Annan. Potentially if your team does well in this meaningless championship game. You're you're gonNA pitch again on Monday in front of you. Know all these coaches that are coming to see you in theory. It's great you're going to get a lot of exposure in in actuality what ends up happening is the studios destroyed supposed to go home now train and try and recover over this week and then get to the weekend and and try and repeat that same action again again and again and again over this entire summer so this this process is basically by the way made high school baseball obsolete elite right there. The main focuses summer baseball at this point in time. At least I'm speaking for the East Coast and you know it's a shame But the primary concern is now become velocity. How hard can I throw? And we really haven't done anything to remove that. From the scenario right a coach is still going to pick a kid that can and throw ninety two ninety three and grant he should. We know that that's going to mean somewhat more success at the college level. The unfortunate part is we've now seen changes at very young ages freshmen sophomores. Take these high risk behaviors to try and get their velocity to these levels without without really Doing any due diligence behind. What are the risks associated with these and should I be doing all these showcases and then also combining that with some of these very risky type behaviors and it's and it's unfortunate right because really what it boils down to the end of the day that every one of these kids is really interested in knowing what is the answer? How do I get there? And they'll do anything to figure out what that answer is And so you know for us from our perspective. It's where we stepped in medicine ball. Training was are sort of answer to to this because we knew we weren't gonNA stop that problem right. We're not going to be the the the loan guys out here with our. You Know Our signs saying like hey listen no more worrying about velocity you. We know you need to worry about velocity in the game baseball so we tried to implement a a system that allowed athlete to really create eight. This philosophy attained trying attain velocity without putting any further stress on them throughout the time inclusive of even our athletes. That will still go and play all summer long It's it's really an incredible thing. Not In a good way the American sports system and the pressure. And what what's constantly needed to you get to the next tier. I've had chats with colleagues in the idea of the only way that perhaps we could even solve. This problem is if we just became Kinda like Russia was in in the seventies and eighties. And not that. That was perfect but at least there's a a unified long-term developmental model where we're all this stuff is is mandated. We're not it's so there's just one of those negative side effects A question I had. I do not to interrupt you. I'm sorry but I also think too that not everybody is meant. NTSB that elite athletes. And that's something that we need to come to terms with as well right. It's it's very difficult to outplay. Our genetic makeup and I think that's a tough thing for a lot of people to swallow but I I do think. Baseball is humbling in the sense that it does do a good job of differentiating the levels of play for their further athletes. And letting you know where you're gonNA fall the the key would be to. I think and I mentioned this in a previous obvious presentation that I've done it. We need to get better at figuring out how to advertise Research and really good research to the kids. It's because we live in a very different generation. Nowadays where in the past our parents were the ones that were the were the answers right. They had the answers today. Hey the kids have the answers. They go into a doctor's appointment knowing more than a doctor. About what the question. They're going to have on their arm or their need. That's messed up right right so they they have all the assets. What our problem is? We're not delivering it in a consumable wet and a research article is great right. Everybody likes to consume research. Because you know this is this. Is the gold standard. These guys are putting out phenomenal. Studies in these kids will never get them. They won't get Kim for three four ten years from now until they actually find some article that somebody like yourself wrote or talked about and when they decipher decipher ten different articles in actually came up with the real truth. And it's it's a shame because that's really how we can stop. A lot of. This is if they really understood the damage they were doing and how they didn't need to do it in that way. Yeah I can understand that I do think to the Soviet system. They broke a lot of eggs to make the cake. You know the kids who weren't weren't as good there would just get it. It just didn't work out for them and it probably whereas least here. You have a chance. I mean you're not gonNA play a high level but you could still play and and so I think that there's you know there's always a give and take but like you said it's I think it's it could be the best situation if we can arm the kids and the parents and improve the culture of the whole the whole thing in terms of the specialization aspect. So this is something I wanted to get into with you as are most of the and I'm I'm a little foreign to this but are most of the players that are you taking these players who are specializing in baseball. And therefore that that however I think four month break they're getting to throw medicine balls. Instead of baseball I mean so these are guys who wouldn't play another sport anyways or or are they playing other sports. Like what how does that factor in what you're doing so we do have some of both right and we have a lot of both. I should say The we do have multi sport athletes that are involved in our in our system. And obviously you're not going to turn away a great athlete. That wants to also play another sport. What I would say this is the recruiting process? Basically does create this specialization. But I think You know I I. I love the term specialization. Because to me that sounds like hey I'm really good at something. I'm really specialized at it right. We we've sort of villain. Is that in this world To the sense that were saying this person is only focusing on one sport. But it's it's the job of their coaches to ensure that it's different exposures along the way right and there's no problem with the kids saying hey sport I play baseball right but my winter season is my strength training and cross training time and we're going to even though on the pitcher but we have all of our pitchers do agility drills because you still need to be an athlete right. And we can't have them. I'm just thinking that they're only going to operate in one direction the entire time. So it's it's having these different exposures though. The athlete May just be a a baseball player. They are specialized. But they're really good at being specialized they're not just going to throw a baseball year round. So yes we do I try. I should say we try. We don't have total control so we try to shut most of them down For four window and have proven to a lot of them. They can shut down for a four-month window. Which would sound very insane and most of the baseball community And still increase velocity over time In in you know oh The simplistic way I can put this program Not to you know it's nothing mystical right. It's just that with that time off and allowing for these highly aggressive movements We have never had somebody get hurt doing movements and have never had anybody it decrease in velocity while doing the movements. Now if you had to rank the the reasons for injury in baseball would you say. Would you say the number one is just no time off and just just continual pressure throw faster and zero time off. Yeah I would say overuse. End High exposure to really High pressured situations is what I would say so. I don't think that a hundred pitches in is necessarily same for everybody. I think it's actually ridiculous that we have a pitch count countless ball Because that would be like me saying. Hey everybody in the gym. Lift Three fifteen netted that feel the same to everybody. So you know when you're taking king a pitch count series. I think that's very different. How many of those pitches in net hundred pitches were maximal intent? How many of them were really really difficult for? That was where there are runners on second third with two thousand he needed to homeboy up and throw ninety plus in that situation. That's GONNA take way more of taxation on his arm than than you know no outs no runner to outsiders out situation So I think it's it's really these these he's high pressure exposures that we have and that's really.

"That hadn't moved in years honestly and once he was able to mobilize them. I was able to do some work. a lot of conditioning work The core work things that I couldn't do before to maintain what I had and with that segment moving I'm good again. I mean it's my still my back will still go out it. I used to go out more than I did. But now it's it's you know it's manageable. It's something I can manage and it was because I know I got into a situation of I had just left that alone and sat around on an woe is me and feel sorry for myself I would have never broken out of that so you know I guess the two kinds of patients we deal with some people they. They're afraid to move. They don't WanNa doing. There's others want to just blast through it and do crazy stuff even with their elements. So that's why you have to individualize a lot of this you see see what the mindset of that person is and see what you can what you're able to fix And Again I. I can't thank you enough for some of the innovative things that Even I've used some of your your kind things for for some knee issues. I've had were you know it's not just range of motion when you're talking about mobilizing something in a completely -pletely different way than what the typical orthopedic surgeon. Who looks at the patient and says Oh your motion is fine? You know I can measure it with Goni ometer straighten all the way and and you can bend almost all the way. So you're fine. Well No not if you follow Kelly stuff that there's other areas of muscle tendon and joint mobility ability. That are just different than whether it can straighten or bend all the way. Am I correct. Only about one hundred percent correct. No one of the things that I you know we we. We really really appreciate your message. My father's a physician my grandfather's physician And one of the things that I think we we kind of come up against all the time. Jillian denies maybe health care. You know when I have catastrophe or pathology healthcare's very clear and very easy to understand and sometimes sometimes I tell people. Hey look you are running to your physician with a problem. That's not a physician problem that you know that the physician may not she may not be set up in the current way we were paid for healthcare and compensated for healthcare. And how it's managed an eight minute visit is not the place to understand your complex the running mechanics or and your lifestyle and your nutrition. I have friends like in Australia. Who are like neurosurgeons who've open gyms and that's how they're expanding their practice and I feel like physicians like you who are working with dancers working with athletes? Spending time in public. Health is really the model so when you take an all healthcare we've gotta bring the mountain to Mohammed is for lack of better word owned simultaneously. We've got to do a better job of giving people the tools to be able to use their physicians. I can use their healthcare appropriately. Not as an emergency brake correct. Stop the The Wall Street mentality the bailout you know. Wait till you're wait till you're badly damaged damaged and then try to turn back the clock not going to happen So either one of you guys mentioned that I think is important as is the nutritional side that you know what you eat. Food is is kind of a medicine and There's when you look at inflammation that occurs in low grade inflammation in your body There are. There's a lot of things out there that are readily available in everyday life. That are it's almost like they're inflammatory. molecules. That you're eating and you're you're creating inflammation And there's a sugar you can eat sugar You know white bread had whiter the bread. The sooner you're dead sugar. There's a lot of things out there that create implement low grade inflammation in your body and again eating being the right kind of Bread or vegetables at sure. It's not going to completely cure things but again. This is one factor where we could do so much better in this country country to be choosing those foods that are actually anti inflammatory rather than pro inflammatory and when you look at being overweight you know when you're overweight. Wait not only. Is there a mechanical load on your joints like for every extra pound that someone carries your your knee reads. It is five to seven pounds right. So there's there's a there's an exponential overload on your joint with even small amounts of weight gain and the good news there. Is that if you lose weight. If you lose three pounds sounds you know your knee. Thinks she lost twenty pounds so I try to tell patients. Let's start with a little and even ten pound weight. Loss has been shown to slow down the progression of osteoarthritis but in addition to the mechanical load that obesity Plays those extra fat cells are. There's a not only a metabolic Alex stress but there. There is an inflammatory stress in your system. There is higher grades of inflammation when you're carrying extra body fat so it's kind of a triple triple the threat to the body. It's the mechanical load the metabolic load on your system with diabetes and heart disease and things like that but then there's the chronic low grade inflammation that it also creates creates so again the fitness crowd that you're working with probably obesity is not the issue but it is for a lot of the population at it is one of the reasons that people have musculoskeletal elements. I mean people who are obese. It makes sense that you would say okay. I understand why they have higher incidence of knee and hip arthritis Indian hip replacements. I can kinda understand why they have more back pain right and and disk but why do they have a higher incidence rotator cuff tears. Well that's an interesting interesting thought and it's because of the these other effects that That obesity has on your frame. Obviously obesity isn't. You're not walking on your hands so you're not affecting the shoulder but much higher incidence of rotator cuff issues higher incidents of the same problems with surgery. If you if you're carrying extra weight so you know. Get the weight off get moving. Yeah try to eat a little better manage stress All these things that I say but I I don't even to all the time I'm pretty beat up and you know I'll eat my pizzas. Every Friday gotTa have pizza. The last name is D.. Newly you have to have so one is that I just WanNa say that. I'm always telling Gillette Dory I've actually got big knees so I'm so set right. I can handle this this extra mass big news. Where would we find and you all on the Internet so we can read about more and also what's next for you? What are you working on? Okay well my website is Dr Nick Dot Com says this Dr. And I C K DOT COM and my my twitter feed is Dr Nick USA chose Dr K. USA. On twitter what what am I working on the you know. I think my next book might have to do with the with the female athlete. And I think it's going to be very controversial And I I think I need to help change this whole process because when I see all these young girls with concussions and the concussions in Asia. There's more more than that but just on the concussions. ACL Tear We're going to have a significant issue going because it is epidemic rate right now and you know there's every high school girls. Soccer team has at any given time three or four kids with ACL tears. It's it's unbelievable and this. Is You know we always talk about ACL ACL tears. Being career ending when I was when I was in my training than we thought. Well we have this solve. We can fix them so it's only season ending so they get back and play the next year. Sure they we do but really it's. It's a life altering injury and these concussions. were seeing are not like when you and I were younger and I'm older new guys but where you got your rebel wrong and it was kind of funny and went back and did whatever he had. We realized. Now that there's a there's a Significant issue there so and females are really you At much higher risk on some of these see these issue so I WANNA try to change the way we think about that. I WanNa keep doing my work. On how we change the way we think about our frame or musculoskeletal system how it functions how it fails and and how it thrives to to make an impact there I'm I'm an old guy with relatively young kids so you know I'm always interested in what my kids are going to be doing. Neither one of them is going into medicine. So you know we'll see how those they play play out and then I'm going to try to keep being a better tennis player a better dad. Better husband But I I still like Arnold says I you know it doesn't take a whole lot more work to change.

"But you know it's a challenge. It's a big challenge and it's not going away when when you look at the money that's spent in this nation on Musculoskeletal Karen. It's why I spent you know almost all day on the phone trying to get a surgery approved these insurers are now denying legitimate surgeries and. We're having a fight for every surgery we do. At this guy's a top level level high school football player with big tearing his meniscus. He made it through the season his knee swelling. He's having trouble. He's also one of the top track and field athletes in Pennsylvania. So He's got a window of opportunity. Now it's the holidays. I'm going to operate on his narrow and hopefully get him back Training for his track and field season and he's being recruited by every college college in the world. His surgery was denied all week. I finally got somebody to approve it. Today it's are you kidding me. So so they know they realize how much is being spent. Don't musculoskeletal and we're a big target that they're trying to denial out of this. It's complicated. It's complicated. This kid located kids like this. You terrier meniscus. It does not repairable so you lose that. meniscus is he at higher risk for arthritis in that need ten fifteen years out absolutely is he higher risk for knee replacement placement twenty years thirty years from now absolutely but but the future is very bright and orthopedics. You know we're doing a lot of things now. Where with regenerative medicine? Maybe we can prevent prevent arthritis. You get that early damage in joint we can. Now we grow articulate Cartlidge we can grow Ri gross join cushions that have been damaged in earlier stages. So it's you know but but again the high-tech is so costly and it's big surgeries and if you can prevent those issues upfront. You've done a lot so you mentioned earlier. You are the vice. President of the American Academy of anti-aging medicine. I'm curious about what people are researching. What's promising promising? You know what's going on in the anti-itch search the pill. What's your hill documents? Even even to me on my two of them. You need a better placebo wife. And she's like you have a man called Gilbert. Well the everybody wants that pill that's going to turn everything around. I wish you were that easy or the exercise pill remember that one. There's GonNa be a pill that it just. You didn't have to exercise. But I think the exciting stuff for me is in the area of regenerative regenerative medicine were were able to accelerate healing or regenerate areas. That are damaged. That you you know you know in the past must orthopedics was more about Mr fix it. You break something you Kinda a fix it and you get hopefully kinda close to what it used to be but it never is going to be the same now the idea that you can you know regenerate h something and get it back to when it was new is very exciting. And we're doing that in some were just on the verge of it and they're here's another area where you know if you listen to the radio or you look at the airplane magazines you see all these ads for you know. Come here we're going to inject this. It's regenerative medicine and there's no single injection right now this re growing anything anything. But there's a lot of them being done and people are getting false. Hope that their arthritis is going to be cured with a with an injection of some stem cells or blood cells although I do thinks stem cells and PRP have unbelievable potential and there are great times to be using them. But I think you know the marketing has gotten a little head of the science with a lot of this regenerative stuff but I do think it is the future show. It's very exciting on the musculoskeletal side but again when I go to those meetings it's not a lot about musculoskeletal. They're still talking about aging in the brain and cosmetics and things like that but true i. It's really hidden hidden lost the right. The durability side is it's it's it's there and it's huge and that's why the three of us are going to help solve all of that problem right. We're GONNA I think we can. You know getting the right tools that people can self assess or maybe you go to a personal trainer or physical therapists and have this quick. I got the idea with my car when you bring it in. They had this this sheet that you they run it through and it has the Red Yellow Green. And here's all your stuff and this all's good in this maybe is going to need something next time and this you better get fixed right now or you're gonNA be in trouble. You know what I mean and I'm like so easy. Why why can't we do that with our body and and and you do that? I mean when you assess people you do head to toe or do you just focus on what they came in with. I mean I'm sure you're preventive stuff. Looks head to toe with somebody based on what they WANNA do. Who is that correct? We have a full of SASS. -Ment for what we think are moving vital signs really are minimums saying. Hey look this is what everyone agrees. You should be able to two and you're pretty far away from that Sultan easily. You know because movement is a complex topic the and even just as we you've kind of you've hinted let's hinted at the right kind of exercise. The right diet right and maybe not the Santa American Diet maybe not bench rest and elliptical. We're GONNA have to a little more sophisticated than that. It takes a minute and I think it's okay to engage in a conversation and a practice one of the things Julian I always ask about and we say. Tell us about. Get Your your health practice. Your body practice that that sort of infers that this is not a game here. We're going to win but a game we're going to constantly be playing. There are times when you can play really. Yeah well. There's times when you have newborn children chasing careers. When you're just scratching you know two hundred so you know I think it's okay to say let's begin a conversation conversation about this and one of the things that I want to ask about because you spent so much time basketball and ballet and you're on the American council you are the chief medical officer the American Council of Exercise Right? You're on the board you were on the presidential physical fitness Arnold. Arnold is my with my. Yeah my Arnold you've got Ya era. Alan Iverson Cal ripken junior some really legends. Have touched you. Do you see if you can just pan back into see sort of through line narrative. What are some behaviors? Or if if you could see those things and then also talk to every person on the planet about sort of those through initiatives or best practice and what you think is a key message. What what do we need to hear that? We're not hearing in specifics. That that's a tough one if I can answer that one You wouldn't be wouldn't yeah we built on the beach. We'd be all be on the beach but it it it I think it's it varies varies from person to person and you almost have to individualize a lot of this Again I get back to to the assessment if if you see what they're doing and what what they've done you know. What what how what their fitness routines are what their sport is? You can almost predict certain patterns of of issues that they're going to have so you either identify the the weak links that they don't know about or the obvious weak links that they have and then you try to rehabilitate them. You either Rehab them or or find other ways to help them resolve and just stay ahead of it with regular assessments. I mean the people need to be. They need to be checked. But but it's not how we working this guy. People only come to me when they when they're hurt now when they're when I see them pretty thorough with my exam. I'll look you know I might not go head to toe on a knee injury. But I'll certainly from their from their core down to their to their foot when I when I examined their knee. So I'm I'm I'm picking up. which was already really miraculous? Yeah and I do I I take the time I take a lot of time with patients. I probably don't see as many patients as any of my my colleagues do and I and I do spend time with people and I do try to. But they're only affecting one person at a time and that's why working with the American Council on exercise a forum. You you have a bigger reach that way. You understand that you you and I learned this from Arnold Old. Arnold Schwarzenegger is a dear friend of mine and we would talk a lot and he saw some of the things I was doing and and he thought it was pretty innovative pretty creative and he would say you know the work. If you're doing it doesn't take a whole lot. More work to reach one hundred thousand people than it does to reach one hundred people if you have the information nation and you know how to use it you know you. It doesn't take that much more work to reach a larger number of people and I've always kept that in mind that I'm always trying to think of how. How can I? How can I reach more people so whether it's you know I'm on twitter Dr Nick USA? I used to have a boatload of followers and then somehow when twitter a lot out of mine got purged maybe they were rushing pots. Something like that about forty thousand followers to you know less than ten thousand but but still I'm on there. I'm always trying to get information out there. I speak at conferences. I try to change if you change one or two doctors mindset. You have the potential to change. You're looking at hundreds of people that you can change so you know I try to think beyond the my one exam room and one patient at a time and I like to write. I like to speak I write books I was on PBS. And and and but then you get so busy. You don't do this so that's why you know any opportunity to work with you. Know legends like you guys and and and to share some of our our ideas and and look for ways that we can reach more people. Whether it's through through working with ace. That has a you know. They have an army of personal trainers as do some of the other certification and a fitness certification organizations. You start reaching these people. And then they're reaching their hundred people it's almost like those What were those multi level marketing schemes? Where oh you go to one person and they go to three person than they have another twenty per so you start reaching a lot of people on maybe maybe you can change some live so I I you know one other thing I it just struck my mind that you guys will be interested in? Maybe you've not seen this data and this is a this is a little shift but I think it's really important is is you know what what kind of an issue we have in this country with chronic pain right. I mean it's it's a significant number of people in this nation have chronic pain and unfortunately a lot of them also so have opioid issues but pain whether you know it or not and I'm sure you probably know this. But the audience may not paint accelerates aging now all these people with chronic pain there has been some amazing studies done on this looking at even twenty thousand plus fifty year olds and finding that people with middle middle. Aged patients with chronic pain can resemble in terms of how you're looking at them on functional functional scale. And they're you know they're functional capabilities functional decline. They can look like someone who are two to three decades older physically so a fifty seven year old can look like an eight year old. Just because they've had chronic chronic pain whether it's because they're in pain in their less it whether the mindset the OPIOID use may be part of it and I'm not talking about the only people who are on Opie this is these are people who who were. Not even on opioids but opioids are a whole nother area but we have a big problem with chronic pain in this country. Once you have chronic pain you're you talk about Agents elevators like that early injury. Your show so you have these you know forty year olds that are like seventy year olds Because they probably are less active. They're they're not moving as well they get into these Functional Movement patterns that are really abnormal. And they're not using their body right. You've seen this with people with back pain were you no. I had this myself a friend of mine years ago. Clowning around Every year he'd find me on the beach tackle me and we'd laugh and get up and just brush it off one year. He he came from behind. I didn't see him come in. And I couldn't tighten up or roll with it and and it changed my life and my back. was you know I couldn't play tennis. I couldn't do a lot of things and it was only because I had at the time I was the sixers physician. We had an amazing chiropractor. who was able to mobilise? Hi Segments in my back..

We are so happy to have you on. Oh It's my pleasure to be here. It's my honor honor to be on with you guys Kelly I followed your work a long time and I'm not kidding when I tell you a week does not go by in my office. Where right where I do not take a prescription pad and write your name on it? I usually spell it right and I send patients to either your books your Your Youtube work because I like you think that people need to take more responsibility in that. They can't care for their bodies for their frames. They can do their own maintenance and your stuff is so innovative. It's so fresh and and and you have a way of connecting with people that they will actually do what you say. So you're on my prescription pad a lot whether you know it or not so nice. Do you think Kelly could keep you as his pocket. Pr Absolute what I WANNA it was just GonNa say is your patients will never get that time back. It's like a sinkhole but also I think this really sets up this this conversation this this obviously. We're we're clearly we're talking about aging we're talking about what are best practices and one of the things that I think Julian. I are confronted with a lot. A lot is that people have never been empowered. They just actually just end up old or end up older end up like us just suddenly. I'm middle aged. I look in the mirror and I don't have any the hair and I look like my father with a beard and I don't know God here except I have some smart friends have said. Hey this is maybe a better way. But the average person isn't instructed the care and feeding of their body just sort of make it through on the on the genetic tolerance and beauty. That is the human. Would you agree absolutely I it sneaks except on you and after the age of forty especially and I'm an athlete. I've been an athlete my whole life and I'm I'm well into my sixties and I'm still competing at a pretty high level in tennis and and and your body changes after the age of forty It ages and it doesn't always aged symmetrically. You could have parts of your body that are like newborn and and other parts that are are very very old and You know the the weekends with Maury that Great Book. He had a great line in it. That's where he says that you know part of me is is every age parts of Mir every age and and it's true and and you can age even prematurely when you're younger with injuries or if you've abused her body if you abused abused your frame a certain body parts can age prematurely. I'm one and once your body starts to age and change. You can't treat it the same as you. Did you need to be moving. You need to be fit. There's no there's no excuse you can't stop but but you start getting into trouble and You know it's it's no surprise that The number one reason that that people go the doctor in this country it used to be the common cold and I was part of the research. The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons did on this when we were tracking these numbers in the late. Nineteen hundred number. One reason people went to the doctors what you would think the common cold upper respiratory issues around two thousand it changed and we thought it was just maybe an odd ball. Kind of thing. Musculoskeletal musculoskeletal issues became the number one reason that people go to the doctor and ever since the year two thousand that has stayed in the numbers continue to grow people people. Have you know whether it's your muscles your bones your joints and this is why back then I coined this term boomer rightous which was like the aging baby boomers are arthritis arthritis bursitis tendinitis and most importantly fixed me Ida you know that mindset you know that mindset they wanna turn back the clock. They don't want to accept the fact that that their bodies changed and they're going to do more damage out there so you know we spent about five point seven percent of our GNP in this country on musculoskeletal ailments and you know if you're if you're over the age of forty or fifty you have them and you have these weak links their outcome. It's kind of like the fault lines in your body whether you know it or not you have these weak links yes and and I know what you try to do what I talk about. Is You know. Find these weak links before they find you. What do you think I can? I personally relate to that. I sort of feel like a collection of moves. I Say I've gotten out relatively unscathed after just a number of dumb things things I've done with my life hawking myself off things just taking lots of orthopedic risks but I have started to sort of aggregate. I mean like my credit score has been deemed as it were because you know all too fast on some skis. I broke my hand when I was a little kid. You know worked around that problem so besides obvious sort of trauma injury because I think everyone can relate to that and the impact that has why do you think that is how why have have we shifted from the cold as we got older to sort of muscle. Skeletal problems an complaints about that. Well I think part of it is The aging baby boomers that that glut of people who all hit a certain age at a certain time and and and the boomers and myself included were different than our parents. My parents generation. They did very little. They were not active They aged not well because of that. They you know if you being sedentary as dangerous for you. Is Smoking a pack of cigarettes a day. So they didn't. They weren't active if they ever went out and did something. We're sore the next day. You know they'd never go back and do it. But we were the no pain no gain no pain no gain you know push yourself hard I did. You know all the contact sports I did. You know fifteen years of martial arts. I and I guess that that takes us all in a takes a toll on you and over time you accumulate. These weak links that I talk about and you know they could be old injuries or an ailment that you developed along the way with me. It was a football injury to my knee when I was a teenager The caught up with me later it could be imbalances in in your frame. Ame You know. There's a lot of people who are working out and you know this. Well I mean you're the you're the king of of finding these These flaws in mobility. But sometimes your own workouts or your own activities will create imbalances in your frame. If you're not careful how you how you train and what you do. And there's if you're a one one spore pony or you're only liked to lift weights or only like to run. You're going to have predictable imbalances in your frame I've been I've taken care of the seventy sixers for for thirteen years and but for thirty years I've been the doctor Pennsylvania ballet and ballet and the dancers are amazing athletes. They're probably the most well rounded athletes out there but even on their frames. You'll find typical imbalances in dancer's body. So based on what you do your whole life and your workout you get. These imbalances of strength flexibility are both old injuries. You've never rehabbed. You know it could be your alignment these people that are bowlegged or knock-kneed you're gonNA wear down one side of your knee your genetics Obviously you know. Do you choose your parents wisely. And then and then the effects of aging aging does change your Collagen. which is the Collagen as you know is the is is the one of the structural components in your body and Kinda like gray hairs and wrinkles the collagen changes? Whether it's in your ten in your elbow area the tendons around there your Achilles killies your rotator cuff and it's it. It doesn't take much for for to get injured so It accumulates and and as I said once you you have these weak links or these vulnerabilities in your frame you you you have a couple choices. you can. I think there's three major choices that you face one is as you can resolve it. which would be great? You know whether it's really great. Physical Therapy Maybe surgery or even the body itself. The body has amazing repair and regenerate capabilities. If you you know as long as you don't interfere with it if you don't get in its way so if you can resolve it that's great most of us can't fully we resolve these elements and with aid. You don't heal as well your tissues. Just don't have that healing capability is when you were when you were a kid. So you're left with some not so great com incompletely hill thing. So if you can't resolve it your next step is to toughen it so you have that weekly. Maybe you can tough tough in it or you can toughen often the the structures around it so it's vulnerable and if you can't do that the last thing that this is where I have a hard time with my patients because they just don't want to accept the fact that they have this issue that's probably not gonna fix but you you can learn to safely work around there's ways to continue to stay active and fit. I will never give anybody a pass us being active in fit but they might have to do it differently. I mean you see that I mean you see the range I mean. You're you're with the people who are pounding their bodies probably harder harder than anyone other than navy seals. I mean you're looking at the cross fit. Crowd right They they they really pushed to the limit and and and they will find those weak links at some point. And what do you do when you come across them. I guess you are able to get many of them back to that high level activity even you know the cross fit is not a real young crowd crowd at times. I I have a lot of patients who were in their forties or fifties doing cross fit and I worry about them a little bit but they they pull it off and some of them are willing to make the modifications. I mean. Did you come across that. Well you know first of all what's really interesting is that you know the Internet. I think just modern the modern strength culture has suddenly really democratized exposing people to serious strength conditioning. Olympic lifting a decade ago did not look in popularity like it does today when we start our Jim fifteen years ago. You couldn't even buy cattle bill in San Francisco and a target right so the world has changed underneath this and what I'll say.
What are the long-term effects of climate change
"Which is thinking about global health over the last two decades. The world has made so many strides vaccinating kids lifting millions out of poverty childhood. The deaths have been slashed in half adults are living an average of five and a half years longer but now scientists are warning. This progress is under threat from climate. Change the researchers for more than two dozen universities and the World Health Organization have published their findings in a sweeping new study in the journal The Lancet Pearson read Eisenman has more all this time the world has been doing so much to improve health. Climate Change has also been underway slowly pushing up the average temperatures experienced around the planet. Today it's about one point. Eight degrees Fahrenheit hotter than pre industrial times one consequence the conditions for growing all sorts of crops around the world have become less favourable each of the major crops We difficulty trek as we track Ri- within as bringing winter weight. Dr Nick Watts of University College London lead this study study. He says the research team found that the yield potential for these staple crops is now down as much as six percent. which might not sound like much but here there is GonNa be the most vulnerable children particularly in poor countries? Fewer crops drive up prices. People get less food which leads to malnutrition. That's devastating for kids. Because their bodies are still growing they end up with these health impacts with them for the rest of their life gastrointestinal cardiovascular disease cognitive defects lifelong only impact that he irrevocable another effective climate change. It's improving conditions for the spread of bacteria called Vibrio all sorts of problems cholera cholera wound infections and diarrhea in poor countries. And especially big killer for kids as the surface temperature of the ocean rises the salinity patterns in the water shift shift. And then what you start to see is over a period of time. Those ideal conditions develop into Algal Bloom Algal blooms that then produce critical levels of Vibrio bacteria which which make it into the water supply and humans condemned up ingesting.

about putting a bandaid over your problem I'm not talking about masking your issues continuing to live life I'm talking about real causes real solutions this is Max living we are talking about your shoulder problems your rotator cuff issues tendinitis bursitis issues what's the underlying cause of these problems why do they keep coming back why is it that your arthritis your joints by the way they did not degenerate due to random chance there's an underlying cause your health issues why do your headaches keep coming back we're gonna talk about this throughout the show today now what I want you to know is that this is not a show where I just give you some good information you listen passively and you continue on with life that's not how this works this is gonna be a show where you take action and when you take action with your health good things that happen if two people going to a gym let's just say this because I was a personal trainer and just you know I'm a personal trainer I'm a chiropractor I'm a fitness specialist I have degrees in nutrition and toxicity and I've seen it to people they might have the same health goals they might have the same body they walk into the same gem they have the same equipment and have access to the same information one person just sits there and read the information one person takes full action who gets the better results if the person who takes action so don't be the person who just here's the information and continues on with life you may be going to church right now you may be getting ready for your day whatever it is that you're doing don't let this be another show that goes by that you hear passively and you continue living life as if you were an expose you been exposed you're now in the matrix you've been given the choice to take the blue pill the purple pill and it was a blue or red is one of those pills and you you took the one that opened your eyes now you know and because you know now you have a responsibility to take action at the end of your life you can't say I didn't know because now you're going to now so here we go you're getting out of the matrix here it goes your eyes are about to be open in a way they've never been opened before hopefully I'm setting this show up for massive success because I feel like that's what's gonna be so when you talk about your shoulder problems how many how many people do you know right now who complain about shoulder issues I have patients all the time to come in and tell me Hey I've got this shoulder issue right now the doctor diagnosed it as a rotator cuff problem is an issue that I've had gone for a long time they want to do rotator cuff surgery Hey doc my shoulder right when I raise it up in front of my body I just feel this catch it gets stuck sometimes and sometimes I can't move it passed this and now they say I've got frozen shoulder are they say I've got this clicking in the front of my shoulder and they say I have tendonitis Sir now they said since birth so that's been inflamed and they want to come in and they want to do injections and they say that if they do the injections I'm going to be fine I'm gonna be able to get back to work what do you think about that doc here's the idea my question to you is what's the true cause of your rotator cuff problem what caused your tendonitis or inflammation of the tendon what caused a burst of the flare up what because your frozen shoulder to do that if you don't know sh frozen shoulder is thank god count yourself lucky if you know if you or anyone you know has ever had a frozen shoulder it's wicked it's annoying a lot of times unless you go to the right process it takes for ever for that to resolve some cheap some people go lifetime unfortunately with frozen shoulder or they don't have a surgery and you know what the secret is after that surgery a lot of people stop the frozen shoulder very much like carpal tunnel never given somebody went in for carpal tunnel surgery they came out and saw comp carpal tunnel because they didn't get to the clients that's the secret very rare that it's just the true carpal tunnel it's very rare that it's just truly and he said capsulitis is what they say is how to diagnose frozen shoulder it's very rare that that's the the only underlying issue and when you get to the underlying cause of your problem you just go in there and Tinker with things you're asking for trouble you're asking not only to keep your problem but you're asking for more problems in the future because think about this you go in you have surgery what are you doing you're not it people say well it's not a big it's not a big deal the minimally invasive surgery do you realize they have to full lay those little muscles open it's like flying a fish and they they peel them back and I'm not trying to be graphic this morning listen it is early morning I don't want you to picture surgery right now but I want you to know that those surgeries that they tell you are minimally invasive you you've been lied to when it comes to these things it it's always invasive it's always invasive and unfortunately a lot of people regret going through those processes so here's the idea I had a patient who came in in the inspiration for this topic right now is because he had this done he went and he had the surgery he comes and he didn't work and he's wanna talk you heard me on the radio and were sitting down in were having a conversation about his his problem it is a lesson it's in my shoulders and my shoulder he keeps pointing to his shoulder I do some testing on a shoulder and I say listen your issue it's not coming from your shoulder I'm gonna do some more tests but I don't think this is all coming from your shoulder and so I do a couple more tests in I come back and I suppose I have a strong I have a strong feeling this is not coming from your shoulder it's actually coming from your knack between C. five and C. six those nerves they go directly into your shoulder and I believe that's what's causing your problem is we do some tests we take some X. rays and he comes back his X. rays he's got what's called a reversed cervical curve in his neck does that mean well you should have a banana shaped curve in your neck so picture banana sure now banana if you were to try to straighten that banana out what happened to the contents on the inside of that banana if you tried to straighten a banana to still have the peel on a banana what's gonna happen to the insides you're gonna get mushy banana but what happens when your spine shifts and it goes the exact opposite direction of the direction that it should go what happens to the nerves what happens to the spinal cord well you're gonna get a stretching and usually of the spinal cord and what happens to those injured individual nerves all the same thing to happen to the banana you get mushy banana and when you look at his ex race between C. five and C. six there's a little bones in your neck right around the middle part of your neck those little bones are starting to get closer and closer together and what that's doing is causing pressure to build up on the nerves there's one test that we did when we did that test we could feel that there's a problem there it was confirmed on the X. rays and now we know his issues are actually coming from not a shoulder itself but his neck in you don't realize how many people that we see who don't actually have shoulder problems they actually have neck problems but unfortunately with our with the model of healthcare you go in you point to where hurts the go when they do some muscle relaxers maybe they do some pain medications anti inflammatories you come back you point to the same area problem and what they do pain injections well that's exactly what he had happened to him so Randy had went through the exact same process he had the most relaxers pain medications anti inflammatories and then he had the pain injections with all of that failed by the way when you don't get to the cause of your problems you're destined to fail and so what happened he goes back and they say listen we explored every possible outlet here so the next step we didn't MRI it looks like your rotator cuff is a problem what we're gonna do is we're gonna go anywhere can repair it what they did if they schedule the surgery they went in they tinkered around with one of his rotator cuff muscles they said that they fixed it he came back have the same exact problems he'd always been dealing with they sent them into a physical therapist who is supposed to help post surgery his problems actually got worse comes in the office we do a couple different tests we take some X. rays find an underlying issue that was not only exacerbating the problem but we believed it was actually causing the real issue we showed how to correct it and sure enough he has no more shoulder problems he's back to function normally again he can raise his arms up over his head again he's back to being able to throw a ball with his kids and I was the one thing he said he regretted is the fact that he went a year and a half long without ever throwing a ball with his kids and he said he couldn't believe that the issue the underlying issue was right there under his nose the whole time he said he had been left listen to me for the past year on the radio he never even made the connection that this might have been caused or coming from his spine so I have to say this listen if you that this is the first time listening or maybe this is the ninety first time that you've listened to my show get to underline because of health issues don't just let things sit there if you know the you have a health problem don't leave that there don't just treat the problem find the underlying cause of the problem that you don't deal with this forever the whole reason why we do the show I I did on the radio every week because I know you're listening

Know the signs of heat stroke before it's too late
"Heat stroke and heat exhaustion same thing well he is all shin is more of the early signs of problems with the ability of the body to get rid of heat so typically you'll see muscle cramps and increased thirst more so than anything and you'll feel warm then heat stroke is when you'll actually develop because some of the neurological manifestations such as confusion a taxi which is kind of imbalance portion of it and then some people actually pass out so that's good Tellico a progression of he related illness so much worse right so he struck being worse and once you get to that point you're gonna need medical help but you can you recover on your own by hydrating getting out of the heat and all of that obviously those are things that you probably want to start with but can you do that on your own or do you need medical help at that point the point of passing Elton neurological changes you know confusion then you should seek medical help at that point this is heat exhaustion where you just need to get out of the heat because your vehicle overheated and are you check your temperature and it's nonce the McKinley elevated than you could probably try to major at home you know get into a cold area err conditioning fans that sort of thing and now the fun so for people who are hearing about heatstroke right now they're gone I think I've actually suffered that or whatever if you actually start begin suffering that you're on the clock because you actually can expire from that correct that's correct yeah of them is the temperature gets too high it within the body you can actually do a permanent neurological damage and people can actually die of it if we can get that temperature under control best way to avoid them all of this if you have to be outside and obviously that is a who that is an evil thing these next couple of days of you have to be out there but what are some ways to obviously avoid something horrible like this happening to you obviously stay hydrated drink plenty of fluids void that there are things they can actually call dehydration like alcohol and caffeine and then wear loose fitting clothes to allow the body to get rid of heat and then if you're gonna be in there the album elements you need to try to limit your exposure as much as possible Dr Nick van Waldron with deal Ohio health and the one thing in closing I'd like to ask you about and I I don't know if this is a real thing or not in this situation where it's hot like this I've heard if you take like a handkerchief and you soak it in you put around your neck it actually is supposed to keep you cooler than if you had not done that is that just a a myth or does that actually work really does work yeah you can you rid of heat through evaporation the best way to do that is that we're with water on the skin we naturally do it with sweat but sometimes you can can you get behind with sweating for sugar dehydrated so water on the skin in the form of the white handkerchief as you're referring to can actually
Google's sales swing and miss (The 3:59, Ep. 552)
"The. Welcome to distribute tonight Chiang, I'm offering Google's parent alphabet reported first-quarter revenue. The missed expectations earnings were hit by one point seven billion dollar e you find for practices. Amid all contras of what's interesting here is amid all the controversies around Google right now between their staff between ethics issues. They've always been able to count on their business. But even in this first quarter revenue did miss expectations and got slammed for it. Yeah. I think the big chunk of that are all of these controversies. But I also think it's interesting that no one's paying attention to their push into smart homes like making their own gadgets have their right made by Google branch with the pixel phone. They mentioned that they didn't sell as well as they had expected to either. No, that's a great point. They Samsung also reported last night also felt the same pressure particularly in the premium phone market is you're saying he's expensive phone. They aren't catching on with consumers because I don't think it's the controversies to be honest because Facebook undergoes these same controversies and yet they their earnings were up. Right. Yeah. So I don't think it's it's the controversies. I think it's pushing the hardware that's hurting their pockets. I think you're right. It's a really good point. They did teas. That there'd be more hardware coming for Google next week were expecting at least Michio pixel three phone. So maybe an affordable phone that affordable pixel phone that the consumers would actually wanna buy. Yeah. I mean, that's kind of how they found their hit with the Google home mini. I mean think about how Google home wasn't really doing that. Well, stacked up against the Amazons device for really long time. And then the mini kinda struck out for them. Yup. And keep in mind that before this whole pixel lineup. There was the next phone line franchise and those next phones were much beloved for the fact that they were Ford -able, also like amazing phones. All right next up while ways in the headlines, again, this time Bloomberg reports that Vodafone a back door vulnerabilities in some of his equipment far back as twenty eleven. This comes amid escalating tensions between the US. And while way and the CFO is still incarcerated in Canada awaiting extradition. What do you think? Yeah. So last week, the u k there was another report that the u. Hey would be allowing a way to build non-core parts of its infrastructure, but the officials from the department of homeland security at an event that I was at had mentioned that the still be a risk even though its non-core perhaps the UK government feels like they have found a manageable amount of risk because everything's gonna come with some level of risk. But you know, these reports like this don't really bode well for national security concerns surrounding wall way, a lot of security officials worry that you know, way is to close if the Chinese government and would be able to use that on five G networks to as a back door to spy on other countries. And the reports were interesting that, you know, Vodafone initially found some of those vulnerabilities while ways said, okay, we got this all fix and then they went back and actually look and those lower abilities were still around so deadly calls suspicion to the company. Lastly, can we talk about the sonic the hedgehog trailer? This looks awful. It's unfortunate that this is a podcast, and you can't walk. Watch this trailer as being unless you're on our livestream broilers. But yeah, I hated every single part of this. I mean, there was right down to the music choice gangster's paradise playing when sonic was running around. And it's just it's so weird to me because sonic has such a like conic, you know, low soundtrack. Yeah. Also. Yeah, why go with that song? When there are so many songs from like the sonic like discography honoree mino-, right? Where I say. But like there are two like poke Amonte like detective Pichu used like songs from yoga on the right? Hanukkah minute us like Coolio for this. Yeah. That's I mean. A love this is just contactable looking in. You know, Brian was saying this could be the next. Mario super. Mario brothers disaster. Yeah. I mean, honestly the coolest thing about this whole trailer was Dr robotic played by Jim Carey, right? I felt like they should have went the route of Sony when they did venom. Or I forgot what studios. I don't know if you're using venomous as a prototype as good movie. No. But like my point is is that they should focus on the villain store. Stay as a standalone movie. Joker sort of a background character. Yeah. Yeah. Don't give me live action Sonning doctoral robotic that's a cool. Like like, Jim. Carey looks the coolest. I don't know if there's a market peel for Dr Nick, I mean, look, I don't think song should be made it alive, actually. Yeah. It's just it's just weird. All right. More of these stories because on CNN and Roger Chang, I'm African thanks for listening.

What are you been working on before we get into the book? Like, what's what's keeping up at night? What how you serve clients? So my fascination my passion really is to is to bring in the neuroscience of communication because there's just been this explosion in in our understanding of the brain. And of course, that comes with the caveat that it's also very fast moving and things we think we know today we have to unlearn and relearn again. And I for the book I was interviewing several neuro-scientists and one of them at the end of the call said now, I want to say something off the record. So I said, okay. The sounds exciting after all this interesting information about the brain. And he said okay off the record. We know nothing about the brain. And what he meant by that was there's just still a lot of mystery left and the brain as people have famously noted has more synapses in it than there are stars in the Milky Way. So it's it's an amazingly complex thing. We're just learning, but we've learned with weren't enough to get started..

"Dr Nick Wilson, we're talking about how to avoid going under the knife. We're going to also talk about you know, if you have already been under the knife, where do you go from where do you go from here? And we're gonna talk about how to heal a bad back in. Maybe your shoulder. Problem is not really a shoulder problem. Maybe it's a neck issue. We're gonna talk about talk about how to differentiate that in how to properly treat your sciatica. So many people are struggling with sciatica. It's unreal. How many people we've seen with sciatica lately in? Maybe it's just because you know, the time of the year or whatever it is. But know is a real issue. And so many people are coming into my office not knowing how to deal with it. And actually some of them have already had surgery for that. And they still have issues a lot of people are blaming it on certain muscles in their rear or in their lower back. And there's a right way and wrong way to deal with it. So we're gonna talk about that. But listen, I don't want any of this to be a discouragement to you. Because i'm. Talking about how to avoid surgery. And I know, you know, there's a handful of people you're listening, and you're like, Wow, I've already had my hip replaced or man, I've already had my fusion surgery or have had a laminate to me or I've had I've had the does cleaned out. And I've had the rod or I've had the screws put in my back. Listen, you have to understand something what's done is done. But what you also have to realize that if they went in there, and they fused your bones together. Maybe it was that they put a cage or maybe they put screws. Then you have to understand that you still have joints above and below where they did that surgery, and we're talking about in your in your back right now, or maybe it was in your neck, but the joy of and below they're always going to be affected. So if you immobilize, which means you keep certain bones from moving the joints above and below are now going to have to compensate, and you know, we've had athletes I went to. Rio with the with the Olympic teams and on the wellness advisory council for the for USA, wrestling and judo and track and field. And even those guys there several of them who have had spinal surgeries, and they keep going they perform at their best. Tiger Woods has had. I think three spinal surgeries at this point in making a comeback doing his thing. There's a right way and wrong way to deal with these things. Now, what you have to understand is if I know you're not held mpn. I know you're not Tiger Woods. You're probably not Goffin between the ropes or anything like that. But what you do have to understand is what do they know that you dealt because most people who have a surgery their life in their range of motion and their joint mobility that they goes down over time instead of gets better with time is it that Tiger Woods was able to get better over time. How is it that these Olympic level athletes are able to still perform at their best, you know, long-term? Well. Well, what they do know is that those joints above and below have to properly be managed the right way, professionally and so there's not only strengthening exercises that are absolutely needed. But there's also a need to look at the alignment because of the joys above and below now have to compensate for those immobile joints. If that's not improper alignment, what are we looking at long-term? We're looking at problems in those areas too. We're looking at joint degeneration, or we're looking at possibly disc degeneration or possible. Disc bulges or herniation above and below those joints. And so it's vitally important to look at those joints above and below some people are I think a lot of people that I see they gave up hope because they already went under the knife. Well, that's the first step to eventually doing it again. So if you've had surgery in the past or maybe you've had a joint like a hip reply. Placed in you still have the joint on the other side, the hit that's not been replaced on the other side is vitally important that you know, how to properly manage that. So that joint does not also breakdown prematurely, get arthritic. And now you've got bald on bone. And then what do you do spend years of your life struggling and dealing with pain only ultimately to get that hip replaced too? So the testing that I was just talking about for Caroline, the lady who came into my office who dropped her knees. Had that disk Bolger herniation that same testing is recommended if you've also had a spinal surgery or fusion Orlando connecting me because you've had stenosis that same testing will point you in the right direction to know, what your next steps are to make sure you don't go under the knife again ultimately to maintain good Speidel hygiene. So you gain mobility, you gain flexibility, you gain range of motion. You continue walking upright and you dealt in Dopp walking for with your head down or in a Walker, which eventually leads to a wheelchair itself important listed, if you've already had that, and you already feel your posture slouching forward, and you see yourself looking down more than looking up, and it's getting more and more difficult for you to keep your shoulders back you need to get the testing done. So you know, what to do next to prevent that downward spiral that inevitably happens when we start that shoulders Ford slouch for that hump that we start to look down when we walk. That's inevitably leads to that downward spiral. So you don't want that. So I highly recommend getting the testing done. So you have some direction, especially if you've had some spinal workers, spinal fusion or laminate, me or hip replacement or something like that. So you know that number against three one seven two two zero sixty six sixty eight were doing that at a discounted rate. You know, again, thirty five dollars. Over the phone. Let's get a hold your appointment time in my office. It's on the northwest side of Indianapolis. It's eighty six in ditch might my my office is called max living. This is max living radio. I'm your host. Dr. Nick Wilson, I told you that we're gonna be talking about how to heal a bad back, and there's as a spinal corrections specialists, and again, nutrition and health guru, and fitness specialist. I get questions all the time that relate to issues of the back and people ask me what about inversion table or what about decompression or what about pure, Pia injections, or what about what about high dose? Vitamin c therapy are ozone therapy or treatment such as infrared saunas, and the reality is we can't just be shooting in the dark when it comes to these things. There's no one size fits all approach when it comes to any type of. Healing. Whether you're trying to heal from cancer or you're trying to heal from a bad back or you're just trying to heal the common cold or flu. There's no one-size-fits-all when it comes to these things. It's not like I'm against any of these alternative treatments. Because frankly, I'm not I think there's there's good and a lot of these treatments. But what I am very against is not ever get into the cause in trying to treat things from an outside in perspective. And let me explain that. Your body is designed perfectly in. I used the word designed intentionally because after studying human anatomy, human physiology for eight years. I don't see how any doctor could open up a cadaver in the anatomy lab NC anything, but absolute brilliance intelligent design how we can study physiology. Hell the hormone symphony works so beautifully. How amazing? Everything is connected how your stomach digests food innately. And then produces these enzymes and then produces acids and how the body is. So incredibly smart, how the brain is constantly orchestrating this whole system for you to be living, and breathing and your heart beating and if you scraped your knee right now, your leg's going to heal, and you don't have to think about any of these happening. Any of these things happening inside of you. I don't see how any doctor can. Literally study the body and not come to the conclusion that this is an intelligent design. So you have to understand that the greatest doctor in the world lives, right? Inside of you. The best pharmacy the best hospital in already lives, right? Inside of you. There's not a single doctor named the doctor. There's not a single doctor who smarter than the doctor. Who's inside of you, your brain your body knows infinitely more than the wisdom of all the doctors combined in the world. And so that Dr inside of you needs no help just no interference. What's interfering with your body's ability to heal itself? We just go from the outside in and we just started. Let's give any medications or giving you herbs or giving you even supplements with the intentions of trying to trick the body into health. It doesn't work like that. And you're going to have repercussions by doing so. And so when it comes to healing, let's say you have a bad back. You've had an AK or Steph back you wake up in the morning, and you're hurting. Well, you've got understand that there is a true. 'cause to that in the causes the cure what caused it to begin. With is that because your disc is bulging or herniated is it because your joints are degenerating and creating arthritis, and you might say, well if it's creating arthritis. It just means that I'm getting old and I'm going downhill not so fast. Just because your body started to create arthritis does not mean that inevitably you have to hurt like that for the rest of your life. You have to realize the reason why your body's creating arthritis there is because of uneven stress and pressure. It's built up you your body has no choice, but to adapt to the stresses that you put on it. So if you're constantly putting stress and pressure on a singular joint because of a misalignment and a spine or. Because of a hit that's been rotated or because of a muscle imbalance been created because sports injuries or because of prolonged sitting sitting is to the spine like sugar is to the teeth. If you're sitting on a bad spine, you're asking for problems. You're you're asking for a spine to degenerate or create arthritis very very quickly. And so let's say, you know, you know, right now, you've got arthritis in its achey when you wake up in the morning, and actually maybe yours hurts when you sleep at night. Well, that's a that's a real problem. But the solution is to not just go in there and give you some medication or some supplement. That's gonna then help to reduce the inflammation their goal is to find the cause of the inflammation. Find the cause of the joints that have been misaligned that it's wearing and tearing an evenly, which is causing inflammation fixed that teach you how to correct that do exercises at home to stabilize. That. So you don't end up dealing with those issues for the rest of your life. And then then you can start mobility exercises to help with ranges emotion. Start getting better ranges emotion doing wobble exercises at home. I teach all patients to do these wobble exercises. They're amazing for the spine. It's even before I see a patient instead of just them sitting there waiting they do spinal exercises range of motion exercises on this little wobble disc. So sits on a chair, and it's some people call a Whoopie cushion 'cause it's kind of the size of a Whoopie cushion. Thank god. It doesn't make the sound of a Whoopie cushion or we'd be in a lot of trouble in our office. I don't think people would come back, but it's about the size of a Whoopie cushion. And I do Rangers emotion. So they bend to the left and the right they go back and forth. They they round their shoulder blades forward and then extend their shoulder blades. Back looking up to the ceiling. They even do rotation exercises. And what that's helping with is one to combat the negative effects of sitting on the spied, but it actually acts as a pump to pump the Cerebrospinal fluid up and down the spinal cord to really help lubricate the joints to help nourish the disks.
