About a month ago, my 8-year-old son Jason asked me if I wanted to meet anyone famous. The only answer I could come up with? The Stanley Cup.
Well, thanks to “Museum Night” at the Avalanche game this past Friday, I got to meet the Stanley Cup. As a 46-year-old who can’t really skate backwards very well, I thought I had zero chance of ever getting my hands on the Cup.
Coincidentally, that is the same 8-year old Jason who was with me at the game.

Exercise: What Is the Best Type of Exercise?
Any exercise you can do on a regular basis is the best kind of physical activity. Walking is considered one of the optimal choices because it’s easy, safe, and inexpensive. It also doesn’t require training or special equipment, except for a pair of good walking shoes. Brisk walking can burn as many calories as running and is less likely to cause injuries than running or jogging. Additionally, walking is an aerobic and weight-bearing exercise, so it is great for your heart and helps prevent the weakening of the bones known as osteoporosis.

Chiropractic: Hip Mobilization with Movement Benefits Hip Osteoarthritis.
Mobilization with movement, like we do with Active Release Techniques at our clinic, is often used in the treatment of hip osteoarthritis. However, there are very few studies evaluating the effectiveness of such manual therapies in the treatment of this common hip condition. A new study involving forty elderly patients with hip osteoarthritis found that pain, hip range of motion, and physical performance all improved immediately after receiving MWM.

Wellness/Prevention: Night / Shift Work May Increase Breast Cancer Risk.
Women who work non-traditional hours over the course of a career may have a slightly greater risk for a breast cancer diagnosis than those who work “9-5.” Researchers combed through 25 studies regarding “breast cancer risk” and “night work” or “shift work” published during the last twenty years and found long-term night/shift work may be associated with a 9% greater risk for breast cancer.
