Dr Proudman explains: “Osteoporosis is a bone disease that’s characterized by the loss of bone density. In other words, certain bones have decreased strength in comparison to other bones.“Osteopenia is the precursor to osteoporosis; this is when bone strength has been lost but it’s not to the degree that calls for a label of osteoporosis.”How does the decrease in bone density affect you? Dr Proudman says: “When bones are less dense, they aren’t as strong as they should be, which means they are more easily fractured.“In this case, regular activities of daily life such as walking, or a small trip up a curb, may actually cause a broken bone.”Letterkenny Chiropractic ClinicLetterkenny Chiropractic ClinicHow is Osteoporosis diagnosed?Dr Proudman said: “The main diagnostic tool is called a dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA scan) and it estimates the density/strength of the bone and risk of fracture.“The screening procedure is non-invasive, accurate and only takes 20 minutes. After the scan the results will be explained to you, as well as offering any advice, if needed.”The Letterkenny Chiropractic Clinic open day on 30th March 2019 is a fantastic opportunity to have a bone density scan and spinal check at a very reasonable price.To book your appointment, call: 0749125207 nowFor more visit www.letterkennychiropractic.comLetterkenny Chiropractic, GlencarOsteoporosis scans on offer at LK Chiropractic open day was last modified: March 24th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:body densityletterkenny chiropracticosteoporosisspinal check

18 January 2013South African Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi has established a ministerial advisory committee to act on the prevention and control of cancer in the country.“The National Department of Health recognises that cancers, together with other non-communicable diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and chronic respiratory diseases, are leading causes of preventable mortality and morbidity in South Africa,” the department said in a statement earlier this month.It is estimated that cancer currently accounts for about 7% of deaths in South Africa, but that the number of cases is rising and interventions to deal with the problem are inadequate.There are eight inaugural members of the committee, all experts on cancer from backgrounds including National Pathology Services and the National Cancer Registry.Expert collaboration to benefit patientsThey are Raymond Abratt, Kwanele Asante-Shongwe, Jennifer Moodley, Paul Ruff, Vikash Sewram, Nontuthuzelo Somdyala, Christina Stefan and Sue Janse van Rensburg.Abratt is head of department of radiation medicine and head of radiation oncology at Groote Schuur Hospital and the University of Cape Town; Asante-Shongwe runs a breast cancer advocacy group, BreastSens; Moodley is a senior lecturer in the Women’s Health Research Unit at the University of Cape Town’s School of Public Health and Family Medicine; and Ruff is head of medical oncology in Johannesburg’s Charlotte Maxeke hospital.Sewram is the director of the Oncology Research Unit at the South African Medical Research Unit; Somdyala is also from the Medical Research Unit and is a scientist in the Burden of Disease Research Unit; Stefan is a paediatric oncologist in the Department of Paediatrics and Child Health at Stellenbosch University; and Janse van Rensburg is chief executive officer of the Cancer Association of South Africa (Cansa)“The inputs from a range of authorities are critical,” the department said.It is expected that the committee will yield “productive, evidence-based engagement with experts including medical specialists, representatives of civil society and survivors”.“This committee will benefit the state to plan and implement comprehensive preventative, control and support services and more importantly benefit patients and their families by meeting their needs for quality care,” the department said.SAinfo reporter

Mexico City, Nov 7 (AP) Thousands of Central American migrants will take at least a couple of days to rest in a Mexico City stadium as they debate whether to accept offers to stay in Mexico or continue their trek to the US border.Humanitarian aid stepped up Tuesday for the roughly 4,500 Central American migrants gathered at the Jesus Martinez stadium after an arduous journey that has taken them through three countries in three weeks.Mexico City officials said they are bracing as many as 5,500 migrants at the sports complex as more trickle in.Members of the caravans of migrants, which President Donald Trump made a central issue in US midterm elections, declined to take an immediate decision Tuesday night on whether to definitively stay in Mexico or continue north, opting to remain in the capital at least a couple more days.”Nobody is in more of a hurry than me to get going (to the US border), but we have to go all together,” said Sara Rodriguez of Colon, Honduras.Rodriguez, 34, fled her country with her 16-year-old daughter Emily, after the girl began to draw unwanted attention from a drug trafficker.Mexico is offering refugee, asylum or work visas to the migrants.The government said 2,697 temporary visas had been issued to individuals and families to cover them while they waited for the 45-day application process for a more permanent status.Rina Valenzuela, who is from El Salvdor, listened attentively to aid workers from the nonprofit Institute for Women in Migration as they explained the difficulties of applying for and securing asylum in the US Valenzuela decided she would better off applying for refuge in Mexico.advertisement”Why go fight there, with as much effort and as much suffering as we have gone through, just for them to turn me back? Well, no,” she said.Meanwhile, hundreds of city employees and even more volunteers were on hand Tuesday to sort donations and direct migrants toward food, water, diapers and other basics.Migrants searched through piles of donated clothes, grabbed boxes of milk for children and lined up to make quick calls home at a stand set up by the Red Cross.Employees from the capital’s human rights commission registered new arrivals with biographical data –such as age and country of origin– and placed yellow bracelets on wrists to keep count.The atmosphere at the stadium in Mexico City was more institutional and organised than what migrants encountered on the road, where townspeople pushed bags of drinking water, tacos and fruit into their hands as they passed through tiny hamlets in southern Mexico.But there were signs that the stadium was already nearing its capacity to hold 6,000 people.Maria Yesenia Perez, 41, said there was no space in the stadium when she and her 8-year-old daughter arrived during the night, so the two from Honduras slept on the grass outside.Migrants pitched tents in the parking lot and constructed makeshift shelters from plywood covered with blankets and tarps.Forty portable toilets were scattered across the grass.The stadium’s enclosed space and government intervention makes it difficult for aid workers to reach the migrants, said Nancy Rojas, an Oxfam charity worker who has accompanied the migrants for weeks.Four big tents have been set up for women and children to sleep under with thin mattresses and blankets, while men were relegated Monday night to concrete bleachers.Temperatures dropped below 52 degrees Fahrenheit (11 Celsius) during the night in a city some 7,300 feet (2,240 meters) above sea level and still hundreds of miles from the US border.Several smaller groups were trailing hundreds of miles to the south.Mexico City Mayor Ramon Amieva said the city needs to “reinforce” to meet the needs of the migrants, especially vulnerable children and pregnant women.Mexico City’s central market supplied 3.5 tons of bananas and guavas to refuel the crowd, plus 600 bottles of water.The human rights commission said it planned to set up more tents and eating areas.Many of the migrants sought treatment for blistered and aching feet, respiratory infections, diarrhea and other maladies.Trump has seized on the caravan as an election issue and portrayed it as a major threat, though such caravans have sprung up regularly over the years and largely passed unnoticed.He ordered thousands of troops to the US-Mexico border, vowed to detain asylum seekers in tents cities and insinuated without proof that there are criminals or even terrorists in the group.In dozens of interviews since the initial caravan set out from Honduras more than three weeks ago, migrants have said they are escaping poverty and rampant violence.advertisementMany are families travelling with small children. Some say they left because they were threatened by gang members or had lost relatives to gang violence.Others say they hope to find work and send money to support relatives back home.Organisers are urging members of the caravan already in Mexico City to await the arrival of stragglers and perhaps even the other caravans further back.The idea is to find strength in numbers. The outpouring of support for the caravan that first set out from Honduras on October 13 has inspired thousands of others to march north from Central America.Former Honduran lawmaker Bartolo Fuentes, blamed by some for starting the caravan, re-joined the group in Mexico after being detained in Guatemala and deported to Honduras.Fuentes denied leading the movement, saying it was a natural response “to a situation more terrible than war.”He said about 300 to 400 Hondurans leave their country on an average day.”What do we have here then? The accumulation of 20 days” of normal emigration, he said. (AP) RUPRUP
West Ham United Bilic wants wide players to ‘do a bit better’ after Hammers fire blanks against West Brom Stephen Creek Last updated 2 years ago 04:54 17/9/2017 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(1) Getty Images West Ham United West Bromwich Albion v West Ham United West Bromwich Albion Premier League The club’s wide players did not do enough to create chances in their 0-0 draw on Saturday according to their manager Slaven Bilic wanted more from his wide players after West Ham registered just one shot on target in their 0-0 draw with West Brom.Despite lining up with a strong front three of Andy Carroll, Javier Hernandez and Michail Antonio, the Hammers found the hosts difficult to break down and Bilic admitted his side lacked quality in the final third.West Ham 4/1 to beat Spurs Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘I’m getting better’ – Can Man Utd flop Fred save his Old Trafford career? Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing The result at The Hawthorns means West Ham have won just one, drawn four and lost six of their last 11 away games in the league, while they also have only one victory from five Premier League matches this season.Bilic did praise his defence for keeping West Brom at bay, telling the West Ham website: “It has not been a great game of football, but we were solid again and limited them to one chance in the game.”Especially in the second half, we were dominant and much better than them and coming into those really good areas, still keeping the shape and all that.”To be fair, we looked to get more and that was three points and you have to say the quality in the last third was missing, either with a cross or a reaction from a cross or something, or when we had good one-on-ones in the last 20 minutes, when they opened a little bit.”We needed one of our players, especially our wide players one-against-one in wide positions, to do a bit better.”A hard-earned away point and another clean sheet.#COYI pic.twitter.com/SlVV0sjO3I— West Ham United (@WestHamUtd) September 16, 2017Bilic agreed with referee Paul Tierney’s decision not to show West Brom’s Ben Foster a red card for a lunging challenge on Hernandez in the second half.”To be fair, it looked to me to be a red card, but when I saw it again I can’t blame the referee,” he said.”He didn’t do anything wrong there because of two things – one, Foster wasn’t last man because two players came behind, and second, that challenge was mistimed and it wasn’t that brutal, so fair enough.”Fair enough, it didn’t have to be red, but a lot of times I’ve seen red for that, especially when you play at home, to be fair.”Bilic said the result, along with a 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town in their previous game, represented an upturn in form going into the EFL Cup tie at home to Bolton Wanderers.”It’s been a good week for us,” he said. “We were hoping we would get three points, but to get another clean sheet and a point away from home, you can’t be too negative about it.”
Nine debutants will take to the field for Australia at an Open level for the Mixed side in the Trans Tasman Test Series against New Zealand which starts tonight at Mudgee’s Glen Willow Regional Sporting Complex. Despite only six players still in the side following Australia’s 2011 World Cup final defeat over New Zealand, Lovett is confident his team has what it takes to continue Australia’s recent strong record over the Kiwis in the Mixed division. “Most of them are coming out of our Youth program and our Youth program has been quite strong since it was rebuilt after the 2005 Youth World Cup that we lost.”“They are new to Open’s but they’ve played international Touch before and they’ve come from some very good programs in their regional level and even their club based stuff. It’s actually quite a very good balance for me, there are some young players that are coming through, probably the one that is really a debutant is Michael Law. He’s a bit of an excitement machine, he’s super fast, he’s very agile, he reads the game well. He’s going to be a player to watch once he finds his feet at that level,” Lovett said. Lovett started his coaching career close to 20 years ago and in recent times has coached the Australian 20’s Boys at the 2009 Youth Trans Tasman Series as well as being the Australian Women’s Open assistant coach for the 2009 and 2010 Trans Tasman events as well as the 2011 World Cup. Lovett says that it’s been a long pathway to get to where he has, but he can’t wait to take on the Kiwis from Thursday.“I’m pretty excited. Coming from a developing state (Victoria) it’s a massive honour, things are a little bit different when you don’t come from Queensland or New South Wales so you have to get up a little earlier and work a little bit harder to keep up on your skills and the modern trends of the sport because it’s not directly at your back door.”“I think both the roles I’ve had in the past four years have been pretty important, with the Men’s 20’s and the Women’s Open because obviously it’s a crossover between both the girls and guys and stepping into Mixed is a new arena for me.”“The Open’s Women’s was good exposure to the pointy end of the sport, I got to work with some really good athletes in the Women’s program and some coaches who have been around for a long period of time as well in Kerry (Norman) and Dean (Russell). Both of them have helped hone and develop my skills as I’ve come through as well as my other mentors, so it’s been good.”Mixed specialist Manu Wakely is Lovett’s assistant coach for the series, with Wakely’s experience in the Mixed arena both as a player and as a coach to be invaluable for the side. “I’m looking forward to working with Manu Wakely, he’s been a very successful Mixed coach and loves the detail, he pretty much lives and breathes Touch so it’s great to work with Manu and see his passion for the game.”Lovett says he will be looking to the more experienced players in his team, including co-captain’s Kylie Hilder and Rohit Prasad as well as Jamie Chan and Sarah Spacie, to guide the debutants along the way in the Series. Seeing some of his Australian 20’s Boys side from the 2009 Youth Trans Tasman progress into the Mixed Open side will also be an exciting prospect for Lovett, as well as unleashing a few new faces against New Zealand for the first time. “I’m looking forward to building a new team together with the senior playing group and fostering some of the development of some of the 20’s Boys I’ve brought through and exposing some of the new players we have like Peter Watkins, it will be exciting.”“We’ve got a strong side that has a lot of potential, but we’ve got to live up to our potential and deliver on the park. It’s their opportunity now to basically come to the international stage and try to deliver, and some of the young kids, seeing someone like Michael Law getting his opportunity being able to apply his trade at this level and how he takes that into the Youth programs going forward is exciting.”There are plenty of ways to keep in touch with the 2012 Trans Tasman Series, which will be held at Mudgee’s Glen Willow Regional Sporting Complex from Thursday, 26 April to Saturday, 28 April 2012, including in the following ways: Websites: www.austouch.com.au www.transtasman.mytouchfooty.com Facebook – www.facebook.com/touchfootballaustralia Twitter – www.twitter.com/touchfootyaus (be sure to use the hashtag #transtasman2012 in your tweets) YouTube – www.youtube.com/touchfootballaus
Twitter/@UKCoachCalipariThe NCAA Tournament bracket, which was revealed last night, had a number of questionable inclusions and seedings. While many are focusing on Syracuse being a 10-seed, Tulsa being in the field at all, and the exclusions of popular mid-majors like Monmouth and St. Mary’s, the top of the bracket had some interesting team placements as well. One notable quirk: despite Kentucky beating Texas A&M in the SEC Championship on Sunday, the Aggies received a three seed while UK was bumped to the four line.John Calipari joined ESPN’s Bracketology show on Sunday night and delivered an epic rant about his team’s seed. Today, on his own radio show, he had a new theory.Calipari on selection committee: “They did not want us in Louisville … noooooo.”— TheCatsPause247 (@TheCatsPause247) March 14, 2016Calipari: They did not want us in Louisville. That’s why they stuck us with a 4 seed.— Jeff Drummond (@JDrumUK) March 14, 2016Kentucky Sports Radio transcribed the conspiratorial portion of Coach Cal’s show:“I had an idea who would be in our path. Like I said, I thought they’d try to ship us to Anchorage but there’s no regional up there, so they shipped us to Des Moines. (We’re) Playing on Thursday at midnight.” He later added: “They could explain the numbers however they want, they did not want us in Louisville.”We’re not sure we buy it, but Kentucky would have undoubtedly had a crazy home-court advantage in Louisville, so maybe there’s something to it. We’re sure #BBN will have a slight crowd advantage on Thursday night as is, unless there’s a big Stony Brook alumni base in Iowa that we don’t know about.More: Vote In Our “64 Most Annoying People In Sports” Bracket >>>
