Friends members should have received a registration form in their last newsletter. Judy Garner, a Senior Friend member who has attended Health and Fitness Day for the past several years, reminds visitors to “wear your walking shoes!” “We have a great time,” she adds. “It’s a time to get reacquainted with friends, and we can learn a lot at the booths.” You don’t have to be a Senior Friends member to attend the Health and Fitness Day event. Anyone over 50 is invited. However, once you’ve been to an event, you might be interested in becoming a part of the group. Senior Friends holds many other events throughout the year. Each Tuesday and Thursday in the fall, winter and spring, a group of Senior Friends participates in the Fun and Fitness program, held from 10-11 a.m. at the Cancer Treatment Center. Kick-off for this season is

Other events include monthly movies, Bingo and Bunco games, monthly birthday parties, a Parkinsonâ€™s Support Group, monthly Dine with the Docs dinners, and more. The Senior Friends group also takes occasional trips together - to locations as close as Cincinnati Reds games and as far as Alaska.

Chiropractors practice a drug-free, handson approach that treats disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. Chiropractors operate on the theory that misalignments in spine and joints lead to pain and illness. If the spine’s vertebrae shift out of alignment, nerves and surrounding tissues become irritated. An initial visit to a chiropractor involves an assessment of the spine by assessing symptoms, examining x-rays, and taking the patient through range-of-movement exercises. Treatment typically involves spinal manipulation in which the chiropractor adjusts the spine. Adjustments often bring patients immediate relief though there may be some tenderness and soreness for a couple of days following an adjustment. Chiropractic care was started by Daniel

At Total Rehab Center we have been working with athletes both in recovery from injuries and surgeries as well as with our Sports Enhancement Program for over a decade. We call it the PASS Program because it works on basic athletic skills such as Power, Agility, Strength and Speed. We now have athletes that have gone through our program competing at the professional, Division I college, and high school level. Our (and their), success has been related to our individualized training program. First we evaluate and test the athlete to find their strengths and weaknesses. Every athlete, sport and position is different. When we work with athletes one-onone we can customize their program for maximum effectiveness. We correct movement errors, producing better outcomes. An additional benefit is that our program also is designed to help reduce the risk of injuries. Every year we treat athletes who have both traumatic injuries such as Adison is lifting heavy for ACL tears as well as overuse injuries. Southwestern Basketball. Studies have shown repeatedly that
young female athletes are at more risk of tearing an ACL than boys. While there are many factors that contribute to the increased risk, a specific training program designed to strengthen and train the muscles of the knee and hip can help to reduce the risk. Many young athletes in this area are feeling the effects of overuse injuries. There is increased pressure to play sports all year long. This does not allow for proper rest, strength development, or training. Our recommendations help athletes to develop more athletic skills rather than spending more time on the court or field

Twelve million individuals are diagnosed with the disease each year in the United States - even more than those who are diagnosed with cancer. But unlike cancer, peripheral artery disease isn’t as much of a household name. Read on to learn more about peripheral artery disease, also known as PAD, and to discover whether you could be among the many individuals at risk.
WHO IS AT RISK?
“There is an increase in prevalence with age,” Dr. Shoptaw says. Only about four percent of 40-year-olds are diagnosed with PAD. For those who are in their 70s, about 15 percent have been diagnosed. As with many diseases, risk factors include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, smoking, obesity, and a sedentary lifestyle. PAD is Dr. James Shoptaw three times more explains that PAD prevalent in smokers Dr. James Shoptaw develops when specializes in cardiac, than in non-smokers. blockages develop in vascular, and thoracic Obviously, many the body’s arteries, surgery. risks can be avoided causing decreased by making smart EORRGÀRZWRWKHDUPV lifestyle choices.

WHAT IS PAD?
Southern Kentucky Health & Family Journal
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?
If youâ€™re over age 70, or if youâ€™re in your 60s and have risk factors, youâ€™ll probably be checked for PAD during a normal check-up. If youâ€™re younger, however, you probably wonâ€™t be checked for PAD unless you are experiencing symptoms or unless something abnormal showed up during a routine checkup, Dr. Shoptaw says. Itâ€™s important to know the symptoms so the problem doesnâ€™t go undiagnosed.
Symptoms of PAD include: -Dull or cramping pain in your hips and legs when walking or climbing stairs. -Any other pain, numbness, tingling, burning, or tiredness in your legs. -Changes in the color or temperature of your skin. -Sores that wonâ€™t heal. -The absence of a femoral pulse, or a lower blood pressure reading at the ankle than on the arm. -For men, impotence.
getting more exercise - can greatly reduce the rate of amputation, heart attacks, or even death due to PAD. Medicine, such as aspirin or Plavix, can help prevent blockages in the arteries. Surgical procedures are also an option. Dr. Shoptaw specializes in cardiac, vascular and thoracic surgeries.

A more hale and hearty 88-year-old than John Hail? ,W¶VGLI¿FXOWWR imagine. People are living longer, but few can match the active lifestyle and excellent health of this silver-haired native of eastern Pulaski County. At age 65, he retired from one job and immediately went in search of another. “I went down the highway, stopping at grocery stores and asking if they needed any help,” says the man with enough college FUHGLWWRTXDOLI\IRU a doctorate degree. One did, and he has been with Food Fair ever since, working four days a week in the produce department. “I’ve got to stay busy. Need to feel like I’m doing something useful. If I stayed home, I’d just be aggravating her,” he says, pointing toward Nora Lee, the Knox County native he met while she was working at Somerset Mall. In October, they will celebrate their 24th wedding anniversary. “We dated for three years, and for the longest time he 28
wouldn’t tell me his age,” says the 71-year-old. In addition to work, including mowing his own large and hilly lawn with a push mower, Hail puts a lot of effort into recreational pursuits as well. Every Thursday, his only day off from work, he and some pals head out to area golf courses. Is he any good at golf? “I’ll usually par ¿YHKROHVZLWK a birdie or two mixed in. I like bowling better. I’ve bowled for over 50 years and once had the highest average in the league,” says the man who On the has come within job at Food a single pin of Fair rolling a perfect game. On rainy days he makes good use of a chin up bar he installed in the basement of his Pati Court home off Slate Branch Road. He usually does “about 10.” The remarkable athlete, who takes no medicine whatsoever, follows the same routine after work most days. Southern Kentucky Health & Family Journal
Before going in the house, he sprints over to the mall, where he walks before sprinting back home. He credits working hard on the farm in his youth for giving him a healthy start on life, and, perhaps, even saving his life in one instance. “Plowing those hillsides at Colo with a team of mules, and doing everything my dad asked me to on the farm did me a lot of good, I think,” says the son of W. A. Hail, a magistrate in the 1930s. He was attending Shopville High, and staring on the basketball team when he turned 18 and was drafted into service during World War II. The desire to play ball was a big factor in keeping him away from smoking and alcohol. “I didn’t want to cut down my wind,” he says, noting how he once walked from Colo to Somerset for a game against Nancy in the early 1940s. Shopville lost, and Hail says the fact Shopville played on an outdoor dirt court while Nancy had a gym was part of the reason. “Plus they had those Dalton boys, and they were really good.” In the military, Hail was assigned to a Navy destroyer and saw extensive combat action. “We sank a lot of boats and shot down a bunch of airplanes.” His ship, with 160 troops on board, had made several successful invasions and was within 800 miles of Japan when the atomic bomb ending the war was dropped on Nagasaki. When they reached Japan to serve as an occupational force, Hail and six of his buddies went out to look at the devastation. “There were skulls, wires, all kinds of debris everywhere.
“All six of the guys with me got sick and died, I assume from exposure to radiation” says Hail, who has always credited his good state of health for his being spared. It was while aboard ship he also got an important life lesson that would set the stage for a successful life in the civilian world. “I noticed the people getting promoted had more education than me, VR,DUUDQJHGWR¿QLVKKLJKVFKRROZKLOH we were off the coast of Australia. I ¿JXUHGLI,ZDVHYHUJRLQJWRDPRXQWWR anything, I better get myself in college.” Following his four-year commitment to the Navy, Hail enrolled at Eastern Kentucky State Teachers College (now EKU). By 1960, he had earned a masters degree in education, married at 29, and was the father of three daughters. As a young teacher, he was an instructor in algebra and geometry in Estill and Pulaski counties, and continued to take classes at the University of North Carolina, Duke, and the University of Cincinnati. +HOHIWWKHHGXFDWLRQ¿HOGWREHFRPH principal sanitarian for the Pulaski County Board of Health and spent about 12 years in Frankfort as director of the Division of Food and Drugs. He says his education and work background have been a big help in overseeing the produce department in his current job. At 5’9” and 173 pounds, Hail says he’s the heaviest he’d ever been and he intends to work hard at maintaining his current weight and health with a sensible diet. “We try and watch what we eat, buying ground chuck, not hamburger meat. And I eat cereal once or twice a

day, usually Raisin Bran with honey bunches of oats and almonds. I eat bacon and eggs no more than twice a year. Despite his best efforts, he recognizes some signs of “old age” creeping into his life. “Up until six or nine months ago I didn’t feel my age at all, but now I’m having some stiffness in my back. “Guess I need to work on that.”

Easy ways to lower your
CHOLESTEROL High cholesterol is an issue for many men and women, who may or may not know that excessive cholesterol in the blood can increase a personâ€™s risk of cardiovascular disease. Thatâ€™s a genuine concern for many people, as the American Heart Association notes that cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Statistics Canada reports that heart disease accounted for 21 percent of all deaths in 2008 (the most recent year for which statistics were available), placing it behind only cancer among the leading causes of death in Canada. The link between high cholesterol and cardiovascular disease has long since been established, but the good news is that even men and women with considerably high cholesterol levels can greatly reduce their risk of one day developing cardiovascular disease. Some may need the help of prescription medication to lower their cholesterol, while others might only need to make certain lifestyle changes to lower their cholesterol. Men and women should discuss a plan of attack to lower their cholesterol levels with a physician, who will determine if medication should be a part of the plan. Even if medication is a factor, the following are some lifestyle changes men and women with high or moderate cholesterol levels can make to reduce their risk of cardiovascular disease. * Shed those extra pounds. According to the Mayo Clinic, losing as little as 5 to 10 percent of your body weight can greatly reduce cholesterol levels. There are a number of ways to lose weight, but the most successful way to lose weight and keep it off typically involves adopting a more active lifestyle and coupling that with a healthy diet. The AHA recommends 30 minutes of physical activity each day. This can include any number of activities that get you off the couch and exercising, including walking, biking, swimming, and jogging. $QDGGLWLRQDOEHQHÂżWRIH[HUFLVLQJWRORVHZHLJKWLVWKDW it can raise your so-called â€œgoodâ€? cholesterol (also known as high-density lipoprotein, or HDL), which can protect you 36

against a heart attack. Many medical experts believe HDL carries cholesterol away from the arteries and back to the liver, where the cholesterol is then passed from the body. * Embrace heart-healthy foods. One of the more effective, \HWRIWHQPRVWGLIÂżFXOWZD\VWRORZHUFKROHVWHUROLVWRPDNH dietary changes, forgoing unhealthy fare for more heartfriendly foods. The idea of changing oneâ€™s diet does not appeal to many people, but a more heart-healthy diet does not have to be devoid of taste. You can still eat red meat and dairy products, but keep them to a minimum, as both red meat and dairy can raise your â€œbadâ€? cholesterol. Also known as low-density lipoprotein, or LDL, bad cholesterol can combine with other substances to form plaque, a thick, hard deposit that can narrow the arteries and make them less Ă€H[LEOHLQFUHDVLQJRQHÂśVULVNRIKHDUWDWWDFNDQGVWURNH5HG meat and dairy tend to have a good deal of saturated fat, which the Mayo Clinic suggests should account for less than 7 percent of your daily caloric intake.

Foods to Lower Your Numbers
OATS. An easy first step to improving your cholesterol is having a bowl of oatmeal or cold oat-based cereal like Cheerios for breakfast. It gives you 1 to 2 grams of soluble fiber. BEANS. Beans are especially rich in soluble fiber. They also take awhile for the body to digest, meaning you feel full for longer after a meal. EGGPLANT AND OKRA. These two low-calorie vegetables are good sources of soluble fiber. NUTS. A bushel of studies shows that eating almonds, walnuts, peanuts, and other nuts is good for the heart. Eating 2 ounces of nuts a day can slightly lower LDL, on the order of 5%. APPLES, GRAPES, STRAWBERRIES, CITRUS FRUITS. These fruits are rich in pectin, a type of soluble fiber that lowers LDL.

CANCER TERMS TO KNOW A cancer diagnosis can be difficult to understand. When diagnosed with cancer, men and women are often told many things about their disease, and the terminology used can be confusing. The following are some of the terms those diagnosed with cancer are likely to hear in discussions with their physicians. *ABLATION: Treatment that removes or destroys all or part of a cancer. Ablation may also be performed to remove or stop the function of an organ. *ADENOMA: A benign growth starting in the glandular tissue. *ADVANCED CANCER: This describes stages of cancer in which the cancer has spread from where it started to other parts of the body. Cancer that has spread only to nearby parts of the body is known as locally advanced cancer, while cancer that has spread to distant parts of the body is known as metastatic cancer. *BASAL CELL CARCINOMA: The most common form of skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma begins in the outer layer of the skin known as the epidermis. Basal cell carcinoma typically develops on sun-exposed areas, such as the head and neck. *BENIGN: Non-malignant and not life-threatening. A benign tumor is not cancer and will not spread to other areas of the body. * BIOPSY: The removal of a tissue sample to determine if cancer cells are present. September 2013
* CANCER: A group of diseases that cause cells in the body to change and grow out of control. * CARCINOGEN: Any substance that causes cancer or promotes its growth. * Carcinoma: A cancer that begins in the lining layer of organs. The American Cancer Society notes that 80 percent of all cancers are carcinomas.
*INVASIVE CANCER: Cancer that has spread beyond the layer of cells where it initially began and has grown into nearby tissues. *LESION: An area of abnormal body tissue. This term may be used to describe a lump, mass or tumor. *LIPOMA: A non-cancerous tumor made of a fatty tissue.
* CHEMOTHERAPY: A cancer treatment option that employs drugs to kill cancer cells. Chemotherapy is often used to treat cancer that has spread or come back or when there is a strong chance the cancer will come back.
*LOCALIZED CANCER: Cancer that is confined to the organ where it started.
* FIVE-YEAR SURVIVAL RATE: The percentage of people with a given cancer who are alive five years or longer after diagnosis.
*METASTASIZE: The spread of cancer cells to one or more sites elsewhere in the body.
*GRADE: The grade of a cancer indicates how abnormal its cells look under a microscope. Different grading systems exist for different types of cancers. *IMMUNOSUPPRESSION: A state in which the immune system is weak and unable to respond the way it should. Immunosuppression may be caused by some cancers or cancer treatments. *IN SITU: In place, localized and confined to one area. This is a very early stage of cancer.
*MALIGNANT: Cancerous. Tumors that are malignant are likely to cause death if they are untreated.
*ONCOLOGIST: A doctor with special training in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. *RECURRENCE: The return of cancer after treatment. *REMISSION: Complete or partial disappearance of the signs and symptoms of cancer in response to treatment. *SARCOMA: Cancer that starts in connective tissue, such as cartilage, fat, muscle, or bone. *STAGE: The extent of cancer, which is usually assigned a number from I to IV. 41
