wish I could design a 30-day routine to get amazing, permanent results. Not possible. The only way to get long-lasting results is to create a lifestyle dedicated to health and fitness. You need only change two habits: • Your eating habits • Your exercise habits Here’s how… 1. Choose only one new healthy lifestyle change (eating- or exercise-related). 2. Write that new choice down with a list of reasons you are making this change. 3. List any obstacles you foresee. List how you plan to overcome each of these. 4. Make this new change your new obsession. Let nothing get in your way. 5. Tell everyone about your new lifestyle change— Facebook! This will hold you accountable and garner support. 6. Track your success and reward yourself. (No food-based rewards.) In about 30 days, this new lifestyle choice will be second nature. Now, choose another change to make and repeat the steps. Soon you will be in the habit of serving your health; it will become your lifestyle and, unlike a diet or exercise fad, it will continue. This is not a quick or easy task so following the steps is essential. It’s the only permanent cure to what ails you. If you want long-term results, create a healthy lifestyle you can continue… for life!

KIDS IN SPORTS

Q:

My son's baseball coach has been pushing him hard. My boy's complaints of shoulder pain have me worried. How do you know when enough is enough?

M

ore kids are training harder, faster and younger. Today, an estimated 30 million kids play organized sports in the United States and the pressure to excel has risen. At the same time, the frequency and severity of acute and overuse injuries has also risen. In fact, there has been a five-fold increase in serious shoulder and elbow injuries among youth softball and baseball athletes since 2000, according to the American Sports Medicine Institute. To keep a child competitive while avoiding injury, consider the following: 1. Don’t play continuously year-round. This applies to all athletes but is particularly important for baseball and softball players. The risk of shoulder and elbow pathology outweighs the benefit of keeping up other’s expectations. A seasonal break will give the tissues that break down from overuse a rest. 2. Don’t focus on one sport. Some 70 percent of kids drop out of sports by age 13, citing adults, coaches and parents as the top reasons. Let your child’s talents develop in sync with their interests, and supplement with practice and coaching. 3. Include strength and conditioning programs. Maintaining strength, flexibility and conditioning is critical to avoid injury. 4. Practice as if it were a game. Sixty-two percent of injuries occur during practice. During practice, be sure to… • Warm-up properly • Stretch • Use equipment that meets maintenance standards • Avoid practicing on a current injury

Trampoline Rules

Rule No. 1- Don’t. PHOTOS BY BRAD WOOD 8 | JUNE 2014


By Sydney Marsing

T

he trampoline in the backyard, the ubiquitous bounce house, and the cool summer refuge of the commercial entertainment center all seem like good clean fun for kids. But turn on just about any episode of America’s Funniest Home Videos, and you’ll see countless trampoline clips that end in disaster. We know the risks are high, yet we keep bouncing. But a recent Indiana University study gauging trampoline injuries in children prompted one researcher to call for a ban on home trampolines. "I think trampolines should not be allowed in backyards. It's that simple," said lead researcher Randall T. Loder, M.D., of Indiana University of School of Medicine. "It's a significant public health problem." During the 10-year study period, about 1 million people visited the emergency room after a trampoline incident.

Bounce houses, usually limited to younger children, accounted for more than 64,000 E.R. visits over a similar period. And, in 2010, an inflatable bounce house was related to one trip to the E.R. every 46 minutes, according to a separate study by the Center for Injury Research and Policy. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, the first rule for jumping on a trampoline is don’t. And, they say, until further research can prove otherwise, that applies to indoor trampoline centers as well as the trampoline in the neighbor’s backyard. The safety features for trampolines, originally designed for professional gymnasts and acrobats, don’t meet the needs of their new function as toys for children and amateurs. Newer trampolines may include pads covering the springs and frames with nets to prevent users from falling off, but according to a study published in Pediatrics, those don't prevent injury.

Why 'Safety Equipment' Isn't • The nets stand outside the frame, so bouncers can still land on the solid metal bars or springs even if nets have been correctly installed and maintained. • The padding and safety nets often wear out before the trampoline itself, and those warranties expire more quickly. • Further injury can come from trying to grab or climb the safety nets, which are directly over the springs and frames. • Safety features might create a false sense of security for bouncers/ supervisors. JUNE 2014 | 9


A VIEW FROM THE E.R. Julie Johns, D.O.,

a pediatric emergency physician at Mendy's Place (John C. Lincoln Deer Valley Hospital) weighs in on trampolines… "I support the American Academy of Pediatrics stance against the recreational use of trampolines. If families choose to have a trampoline, it is important to have safety rules in place. The most important rule would be that only one person at a time be on the trampoline and NO flips! "…The most common injuries are sprains and strains, followed closely by minor head injury and lacerations caused by two jumpers colliding. The most serious injuries are cervical spine (neck) injuries from attempted flips. Severe head injuries, long bone fractures and even internal injuries such as spleen and liver lacerations have occurred from trampoline use. "…I do specifically recall that when a local, indoor trampoline park opened, we had multiple patients with injuries directly related to the trampoline use. "…It is important to keep in mind that while the commercial trampoline and bounce house places have safety rules in place and age-restricted areas, there is still a high risk for injury, particularly among the very young children and teenagers who consider themselves 'invincible.' "

10 | JUNE 2014

Safety equipment on trampolines, like this frame, often wears out before the bouncing surface, posing an additional risk.


Top 10 Trampoline Rules

1. Don’t Unless the trampoline is being used as specialized training equipment under expert supervision, preferably with the use of a safety harness, just don’t.

were expected to break down even sooner. Check frequently for any damage, and repair it using appropriate replacement parts.

2. Be Sure It’s Insured Many homeowners insurance policies have exclusions for trampolines, or require them to be enclosed like swimming pools.

7. If You Can’t Fix it, Lose it If replacement parts are unavailable, throw it away. If you’re tempted to keep it because you can’t afford a new one, see rule No. 1.

3. Keep the Springs Padded One in five trampoline injuries come from hitting the springs or the frame. Buying a padded trampoline isn’t enough; the padding dissolves fast, especially in the Arizona sun, so keep it maintained and make sure it stays in place.

8. NO FLIPS Flips and somersaults are some of the main causes of fatal or permanent spinal injuries. Leave them to the athletes with formal training, expert spotters and professional equipment.

9. More Than Supervision You have 4.

Tips from Dr. Greg

Get a Better Night’s Sleep

Poor sleep contributes to accidents, depression, forgetfulness, poor skin, weight gain and bad judgement. Here’s how to sleep better: 1 Pick a bedtime Erratic ●

sleep schedules leads to low quality of sleep. Our bodies do better when we get into a routine.

2 Unplug Turn off computers, TVs, video games and room lights; And shut down your phone! Start winding down about 30 minutes prior to bedtime.

3 Reflect on the good Now’s not the time to think about what went wrong or what you have to face tomorrow. Focus on the positive in your life to help your mind become calm.

4 Upgrade your mattress Choose a medium-firm bed. Replace your bed when worn out and sagging.

Turmeric (Curcuma longa)

Turmeric is the main ingredient in curry and is used in cooking mainly to impart a golden color to foods. A strong antioxidant and an antiinflammatory, turmeric has been used for centuries to treat a variety of conditions. BENEFITS Studies show turmeric might help treat the following: • Indigestion, bloating and gas • Ulcerative Colitis Turmeric might help U.C. stay in remission. • Heart Disease Early results indicate turmeric might help prevent plaque buildup that can lead to heart attack or stroke. • Cancer May help prevent or treat cancers, including prostate, breast, skin and colon cancer. More research is needed. Cancer should be treated with conventional medications. (Tell your doctor about any complementary therapies.) • Osteoarthritis Because of its ability to reduce inflammation, turmeric is thought to relieve osteoarthritis pain. SOURCE Turmeric, a relative of ginger, grows 5–6 feet high mostly in India. The rhizomes and bulbs are boiled, then dried to create a fragrant powder with a bitter, somewhat sharp taste. HOW IT’S TAKEN Curcumin, the active agent in turmeric is available in a fluid extract, capsules and powder. It's considered safe when used as a spice, but no established dosage has been determined for supplements. Consult your medical professional before taking. Do not take if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. CHEF’S PERSPECTIVE The bitter, earthy flavor adds complexity to savory dishes. Turmeric stains, so protect your clothes and cutting boards. Add a pinch of turmeric to rice to turn it bright yellow. Slip into soups and stews, add to cooking oil for omelettes or grilled vegetables. It might take between 6 and 24 "pinches" per day to reap the health benefits, so you might consider a supplement. (If so, consult your doctor on the safety and dosage.)

Terry's Tips

Tackle the Monster

If you have a stressful job (you, too, full-time moms!), here are a few things to help shake the tension monster. 1 Take a deep breath… ●

or 3. Seriously, most of us only use around 15 percent of our lung capacity. Try closing your eyes and focus on taking three long, deep breaths. It should only take around 30 seconds.

2 Get moving! If you’re stuck in a cubicle, shove your chair under your desk (kick off your heels, if necessary) and do 10 jumping jacks or 10 squats. Or both! Again, it should only take around 30 seconds, which means you could possibly do this every hour of your work day!

3 Stretch it out. We hold ●

a lot of stress in our necks throughout the workday, (hence the saying “he's a real pain in the neck!”). To combat this, roll your head gently and slowly from left to right and then fully rotate both clockwise and counter clockwise. OK, enough fun… Now, back to work!
