Stretching Your Legs May Help Prevent Diseases Such As Heart Diseases, Stroke And Diabetes

New research published in The Journal of Physiology shows that 12 weeks of easy-to-administer passive stretching helps improve blood flow by making it easier for your arteries to dilate and decreasing their stiffness.

Passive stretching differs from active stretching in that the former involves an external force (another person or gravity) stretching you, whereas active stretching is performed on your own. The changes they observed in blood vessels could have implications for diseases, including the number one global killer, heart disease.

Researchers at the University of Milan assigned 39 healthy participants of both sexes to two groups. The control group didn’t undergo any stretching. The experimental group performed leg stretches 5 times a week for 12 weeks.

Researchers evaluated the effect of passive stretching on the blood flow locally and in the upper arm. They found that the

Dr. James Lynch is the First US Private Practice Surgeon to Use Augmented Reality Spine Surgical Guidance at a Community Hospital

Spine Nevada Minimally Invasive Spine Institute announced that Dr. James Lynch, a board-certified and fellowship-trained neurological surgeon, was the first private practice surgeon in the United States to use the Augmedics xvision Spine System at a community hospital. xvision is the first Augmented Reality Guidance system to be used in surgery. It allows surgeons to visualize the 3D spinal anatomy of a patient during surgery as if they have "x-ray vision," and to accurately navigate instruments and implants while looking directly at the patient, instead of a remote screen. The xvision Spine System uniquely builds and improves upon existing surgical navigation systems to meet the surgeons' needs and provide technical confidence in the operating room.

Dr. Lynch performed a posterior fusion using xvision as part of a 360 fusion back up of Lattus / 4Web lateral fusion at Renown Regional Me

People Who Eat A Late Dinner May Gain Weight

Eating a late dinner may contribute to weight gain and high blood sugar, according to a small study published in the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

Over 2.1 billion adults are estimated to have overweight or obesity which make health complications like diabetes and high blood pressure more likely. Some studies suggest that consuming calories later in the day is associated with obesity and metabolic syndrome.

“This study sheds new light on how eating a late dinner worsens glucose tolerance and reduces the amount of fat burned. The effect of late eating varies greatly between people and depends on their usual bedtime,” said the study’s corresponding author Jonathan C. Jun, M.D., of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, M.d. “This shows that some people might be more vulnerable to late eating than others. If the metabolic effect
