How much do you know about Cerebral Palsy?
Cerebral palsy is a group of disorders that can involve brain and nervous system functions, including movement, learning, hearing, seeing, and thinking. These motor problems are initially seen in the first few years of the child’s life and generally don’t worsen over time.
What is going on in the body?
Cerebral palsy is a motor impairment caused by an injury to the brain. The brain damage usually occurs before birth. However, at times it can occur during delivery or even after the child is born.
There are four major types of Cerebral palsy:
- spastic CP, which involves permanent stiffness and contracture of the muscles
- athetoid, or dyskinetic, CP, which causes slow writhing movements
- ataxic CP, which is rare and affects the balance and depth perception
- mixed forms of CP, which include characteristics of the other three types of CP
At one time, CP was thought to be caused by the infant getting too little oxygen during birth. More recent studies suggest that most cases come from problems during pregnancy and not during delivery.
What are the signs and symptoms of the disease?
Cerebral palsy may cause a variety of symptoms, depending on the type of CP and the amount of brain damage. In addition to the motor problems described above, people with CP may have the following symptoms:

“Venous disease is one of the most common health problems in the U.S., affecting approximately 50 percent of the population. The condition includes varicose veins, spider veins, or deep vein thrombosis.
Today, there are several outpatient, minimally invasive treatments for vein issues. One alternative is compression therapy.
Compression stockings can prevent vein problems from occurring, relieve venous symptoms such as leg swelling, fatigue or achiness and decrease the likelihood of a blood clot.”
The pressure supplied by these stockings or various compression garments facilitates healthy blood flow. Compression therapy usually utilizes “gradient” or graduated compression stockings. This means the most concentrated level of compression is at the ankle.
The pressure reduces further up the leg, enabling the veins to more efficiently transport blood back up to the heart. This prevents blood pooling in the feet and enables the management of chronic and often dangerous venous disorders such as the above mentioned DVT as well as Phlebitis, Edema and others.
SIGVARIS is part of an internationally active, physician founded medical device group. For the past 140 years, SIGVARIS has focused on the development, production and distribution of medical compression garments.

The following excerpts from “Huff Post Green:”
A powerful winter storm system moving through the central United States could bring up to a foot of snow to areas of the Plains and reach as far east as the Ohio Valley, according to the National Weather Service.
The Weather Channel has named the system winter storm “Q,” apparently after the New York City subway line, according to The New York Times. But as whimsical as the name might be, authorities aren’t taking winter storm Q lightly.
Winter storm warnings were issued from Colorado to Illinois Wednesday as the system dumped snow in the Rockies and moved eastward. According to the Associated Press, hundreds of snow plows and salt spreaders were prepped in St. Louis Wednesday, well in advance of the storm…
AccuWeather forecasted snowfall totaling up to 24 inches for areas of the Plains, with snow and ice spanning a large part of the central U.S.

Lady Gaga has cancelled her entire U.S. tour due to pains from Synovitis.
Medical tests revealed Gaga has a labral tear of the right hip. A hip labral tear involves the ring of soft elastic tissue, called the labrum, that follows the outside rim of the socket of the hip joint.
Often compared to lupus, Synovitis, also known as “Toxic Synovitis” is an inflammation within the hip joint. A diagnosis is obtained following an ultrasound or joint x-rays of the hip or blood tests.
What is going on in the body?
Synovitis is a non-traumatic hip pain, which means that it is not caused by an injury. Instead, pain is caused by swelling and inflammation in the hip. Synovitis often follows an upper respiratory infection such as a cold or flu.
What are the signs and symptoms of the disease?
- pain in one hip
- a limp or inability to bear weight because of the hip pain
- low grade fever at the beginning of the illness
- knee and thigh pain on the affected side
- often the infected person does not appear to be ill
What are the causes and risks of the disease?
While Synovitis often follows an upper respiratory infection, the exact cause is not clear, so there is no known prevention.
According to The Detroit News (and others) Lady Gaga released the following statement when announcing the initial cancellations: “I am completely devastated and heartsick. I’ve been hiding this injury and pain from my staff for a month, praying it would heal, but after last night’s performance I could not walk.”
What is Far Infrared Heat?
Far Infrared is a band of light that we perceive as heat. While we cannot see infrared heat, we can feel its effects. Infrared radiation, or radiant heat, represents over half of the energy emitted by the Sun and is divided into three segments: near, middle, and far.
Infrared rays heat our body by a process called conversion. Through conversion, far infrared heat can penetrate organic substances such as the human body without heating the air in between. By using far infrared heat as opposed to traditional heating methods, you enable the heat to penetrate deeper into your body without the skin discomfort of heating pads, hot towels, and some pain relief gels/creams.
The Thermotex Knee Infrared Heating Pad (below) provides safe, non-invasive and highly effective therapy and relief.
