Nevada Health (March 20, 2017): Issues surrounding Back Pain/prevention

Jeniffer Solis : March 21, 2017 2:57 pm : Nevada Health

Nearly 30% of Americans suffer from constant low back pain. People who face the condition not only experience aches and pangs, but also, in some cases, large medical bills from seeing doctors and buying medications, long stints away from work, and the general annoyance of not being able to do the things they love. Jennifer Kawi—an award-winning advanced practice nurse with a specialty in pain management—joins the show to talk about how you can reduce or prevent back pain, potentially without having to go to the doctor.

Your medical records now live online, on computer servers around the world. If that electronic info comes into the wrong hands, your sensitive health information can be used against you, potentially preventing you from getting a job or critical insurance. Bo Chopko — an Associate Professor with the Stanford University Medical School—joins the show to talk about the most common ways your medical information leaks, what that can lead to, and what you can do to keep your records safe.
