Dr. Thoma discusses the importance of walking correctly to avoid and improve lower back pain.
Strengthening the muscles in your body, and retraining your body how to walk correctly will make a big difference in improving your back pain over the long term.
Dr. Thoma explains how he is protecting and caring for his family during this pandemic situation.
His primary advice...keep your hands off your face!
This is a primary habit that we can all create now, or in a normal situation, to keep you and your family safe from even the simple cold or flu.
These days, I am seeing a lot of patients in the clinic that are dehydrated. They are coming to me with general aches and pains, but after a urinalysis, it's clear that they haven't been drinking enough water.
Most of them are struggling because they are wearing a face mask all day long. It's a bit more difficult to get all of the water you need in a day with a face mask on. However, this is an important part of your overall health and well-being. Staying hydrated will help your body work better.
Make sure you are taking time to take off your face mask, get a drink of water, wash your hands, and then put your mask back on.
Wearing a face mask has become a normal part of our everyday lives for a lot of people these days.
In this video, Dr. Thoma shares how to properly wear your mask for maximum protection. He also shares tips on putting your mask on and off properly to reduce contamination.
Your overall health is important to us. Learn how to use your mask effectively and stay healthy.
