|Watson Clinic Blog Major League Care You Can Count On A Message from Dr. Salvador Montenegro,Watson Clinic Sports Medicine/Nonsurgical Orthopaedic Specialist Generations of families in our community have enjoyed the timeless tradition of baseball thanks to the 82-year partnership between the Tigers organization and the City of Lakeland. This is particularly impressive when you consider that this is the longest-running relationship between a Major League baseball team and a spring training host city in the history of the sport. Watson Clinic understands the importance of this relationship, and how it continues to elevate the quality of life for residents of all ages. For the past 77 years, we've devoted ourselves to the same pursuit. We've worked to enhance the caliber of healthcare in our region, foster a sense of trust and personal connection with our patients, and embrace the spirit of innovation in medical technologies, treatments and research. It was inevitable that our two organizations would join forces for the betterment of this community we all know and love. Our collaboration began many decades ago, and we've been proud to serve as the official medical provider for the Detroit Tigers Florida Operations and the Lakeland Flying Tigers ever since. From pre-season physicals to injury prevention and repair, we maintain close contact with the team's players and staff throughout each season and beyond. The Tigers benefit from the diversity of Watson Clinic's more than 40 medical and surgical specialties, and the convenience and expertise in which those services are delivered. In this respect, they are no different from any of the countless millions of patients we've cared for since we first opened our doors in 1941. Every day, our patients look to us for a comprehensive, compassionate and all-inclusive healthcare experience like no other. Our commitment to going above and beyond expectations is especially evident in our sports medicine and physical therapy departments, where a large team of physicians, nurses, athletic trainers and physical therapists cater to a wide roster of patients from the high school athlete to the active retiree. Whether providing routine sports physicals, coverage for area high school teams during game play, or the finest in physical rehabilitation services, our specialists work tirelessly to nurture the strength, agility and overall fitness of patients young and old. The Watson Clinic Center for Rehabilitative Medicine, located on the second floor of our Professional Center at 1430 Lakeland Hills Blvd., has long been a staple for physical and occupational therapy services. One of our newest locations carries on this proud tradition of major league care. Located at 2190 E. County Rd. 540A, Watson Clinic Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine offers convenient access to an impressive team of experts and state-of-the-art technologies like the Anti-Gravity Treadmill® for patients in south Lakeland, Bartow and surrounding areas. We thank our entire community for entrusting us with their care for more than three-quarters of a century, and congratulate the Tigers on what is sure to be another home run season. Salvador O. Montenegro, MD is a board-certified sports medicine and nonsurgical orthopaedic specialist who divides his time between two facilities: Watson Clinic Main and Watson Clinic Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine. He is proud to serve as the team physician for the Detroit Tigers Florida Operations and the Lakeland Flying Tigers, Southeastern University, George Jenkins High School, Lake Gibson High School, Kathleen High School, and a number of additional competitive athletic organizations.

|Watson Clinic Blog Love Your Heart Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States, but it can be prevented and controlled. Even in a short month's time, you can do a lot to take better care of your heart. Week 1: Scrutinize labels. Saturated and trans fats can lead to clogged arteries. Salt can raise blood pressure. Sugar can pack on pounds. To avoid these risks for heart disease, read nutrition labels when you're grocery shopping. Look for foods with unsaturated fats, omega-3 fatty acids, and low percentages of sodium and sugar. Also, choose plenty of foods that come without nutrition labels: fresh fruits and vegetables. They are low in unhealthy fats and sodium, and they contain fiber, which can help prevent high blood cholesterol. Week 2: Get moving. Like all muscles, your heart needs exercise. This week-and every week-aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity, such as brisk walking. Share your heart-healthy habit with a loved one-invite him or her to join you on a walk. Week 3: Know your numbers. If you don't know your blood pressure and cholesterol numbers, make an appointment this week with your doctor to have them checked. Having high blood pressure or too much LDL cholesterol (the bad kind)--or not enough HDL cholesterol (the good kind)--in your blood can put you at risk for heart disease. Being overweight also makes heart disease more likely. You probably know if you're carrying too many pounds. But if you aren't sure, it's another thing to discuss with your doctor. He or she can advise you on lifestyle changes or medicines to help you achieve heart-healthy numbers in all three areas. Week 4: Vow to quit. Smoking harms the heart as well as the lungs. So if you light up, it's important to ditch the habit for good. Smoking also hurts your family and friends, because exposure to secondhand smoke can trigger heart problems in them. So quitting is an act of love-not only for your heart, but also for all the hearts that surround you.

|Watson Clinic Blog Healthy Aging is Possible Does the text in a book look smaller than it once did? Do you find it harder to get down on your knees to look under the bed-and to get up again? There's no question that age brings changes to our lives and yes, some of them we'd prefer to avoid. Physically, for example, stiffening joints can make it harder to get around. And many people find that their short-term memory just isn't what it used to be. Often, difficult personal situations, such as the death of a spouse, can add to the negative changes. Age can also bring positive changes. One survey found that many older people say they have less stress and more time for family, interests and hobbies than they used to. In fact, the vast majority of older people report they are satisfied with their lives. To a great extent, what older age will be like for you depends on how you live now. It also depends on how you cope with the changes that come your way. You can't turn back time. Still, you can take steps to help make getting older easier and more pleasant. Here are a few tips: Decide to have an active mind and body. Remember the saying "use it or lose it." Opt to be involved. Isolation can contribute to depression and other health problems. So keep connected to family and friends. Social connections can help ensure that you have physical and emotional support for what comes your way. Choose a healthy lifestyle. Try to eat well, stay at a healthy weight, get enough rest, quit smoking, observe safety precautions and see your doctor regularly. Make the most of your spare time. Do things you enjoy, and allow yourself some downtime. Too much stress can bring on a host of health problems. Practice healthy ways to cope. Believe in yourself, and remember: You can handle whatever comes your way.

|Watson Clinic Blog Some must-do screenings and self-exams There's no denying how popular DIY projects are today. We love to roll up our sleeves and get it done, but what about health screenings that can alert us to possible health problems? Can we tackle some of those ourselves too? You'll need a doctor for most screening tests and exams, of course. Although you can do some checks yourself, often with a doctor's input or recommendation. Examples of both are below. Keep in mind, these are generalized guidelines. You may need screenings earlier, more often or not at all. Ask your doctor what's right for you. AT HOME Step on a scale. Type the result (plus your height) into a body mass index (BMI) calculator, like this one, to see if you're overweight or obese: www.morehealth.org/bmi. Measure your waist. Place a tape measure just above your hipbones, exhale and measure. A waist greater than 40 inches for men or 35 for women boosts type 2 diabetes and heart disease risks. Check your feet if you have diabetes. Your doctor may have you look for and report any sores or other problems before they become major infections. Check your skin for cancer. Frequent (such as monthly) self-skin checks may help you find cancer early. Changing moles, blemishes or other worrisome-looking areas on your skin should be shown to your doctor. Monitor your blood pressure. Your doctor may have you use a portable monitor at home if, for instance, you have borderline high blood pressure or your readings might be high only at the doctor's office. AT THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE Mammograms. Women should have yearly breast cancer screenings starting at age 40, or even earlier depending upon your doctor's recommendations. Colonoscopy. Starting at age 50, colonoscopies or other screening tests are recommended for both men and women to help prevent colorectal cancer or find it early. Pap tests. Starting at 21, regular Pap smears help guard against cervical cancer in women. Blood pressure checks. Have your doctor check your blood pressure, especially if you have certain conditions such as heart disease or diabetes. Cholesterol blood tests. Starting at age 20, have your cholesterol checked every four to six years. Establishing a primary care physician of your own is one of the most important steps you can take to ensure a healthy life.

|Watson Clinic Blog 5 Tips for Happier Holidays This year, give yourself the best holiday gift ever: more merry, magical moments and fewer frazzled ones. Here are five ways to make this year's celebrations high on joy and low on stress—and help you keep the happy in the holidays. 1. Ratchet down those expectations. Chasing after picture-perfect get-togethers can create the perfect storm of stress. It's OK (really!) if your guests arrive while you're still setting the table, if you burn the carrots or if the sweater you bought for your favorite cousin is the wrong size. Things happen, even during the holidays. Keep that in perspective, and do your best to relax and enjoy. 2. Trim your to-do list. Go ahead—cross out at least one or two things that are likely to make you frantic. You don't have to say yes to every invitation that comes your way or bake cookies from scratch when you can easily buy yummy ones. Make what matters most—time spent with friends and loved ones—your priority. 3. Catch your breath. Your default holiday behavior may be to go into overdrive and cheat yourself out of restorative me-time. But chances are, you need that downtime now more than ever. So carve out at least a few minutes every day to recharge. Do something that gives you pleasure—for example, unwinding with music or calling a faraway friend. 4. Lend a hand. Spread some holiday cheer by volunteering for your favorite charity—maybe a soup kitchen or a homeless shelter. Helping out may lift your spirits and put you in that special holiday mood. 5. Resist the temptation to overspend. Ultimately, you're only setting yourself up for post-holiday stress. Scale back, and remind yourself that the real holiday spirit doesn't revolve around pricey gifts. If you enjoy making crafts or baking, consider giving some homemade gifts. Or give the gift of your time: Wrap up a homemade coupon for some babysitting hours—weary parents will be grateful. Or offer to clean the home of an elderly person or someone recovering from an illness. These types of gifts are easy on the budget and often greatly appreciated.

|Watson Clinic Blog How to prevent cervical cancerHere's something every woman should know about cervical cancer: It's almost always preventable. Cervical cancer is rare in women who are regularly screened for it. And there's a vaccine that protects against its most common cause, the human papillomavirus (HPV). Most cervical cancers start with precancerous changes that gradually turn into cancer. Screening can find these abnormal changes, which doctors can then treat. That stops cancer from ever developing. Screening always includes the Pap test and, for some women, the HPV test. Both tests are simple and fast and consist of sample cells from the cervix. The Pap test looks for cell changes and abnormal cells, while the HPV test looks for the virus that causes cell changes. Be sure to ask your doctor what the best screening schedule is for you. But in the meantime, here's what the American Cancer Society advises for most women: • Starting at 21 and through age 29, get a Pap test every three years. • Starting at age 30, you have a choice. Either get a Pap test every three years or get both a Pap test and an HPV test every five years. It's OK to stop testing if you're older than 65 and have had normal Pap test results for many years. It's also OK to stop if you've had a total hysterectomy—both your uterus and cervix have been removed—for a noncancerous condition like fibroids. There are more than 200 types of HPV. But two—both spread through sexual contact—cause roughly 70 percent of cervical cancers. The HPV vaccine targets those two types. Even so, the vaccine can't treat an HPV infection that has already developed. That's why it's best for people to get the shot before they become sexually active. Vaccination should start at age 11 or 12 for both boys and girls, but men and women 26 and younger can still be vaccinated. The vaccine can protect against several other cancers, including anal, throat and penile cancer.

|Watson Clinic Blog 5 heart-healthy changes you can make today Improving your heart's health may seem like a big project, but even small changes in your daily habits can make a difference. Here are five simple steps you can get started on right away. 1. Bring a piece of fruit to work. Eating more fruits (and veggies) is a heart-healthy choice. Plus many fruits are portable (think apples, oranges and bananas), which makes them an easy snack option. When hunger hits, having a piece of fruit at your work area will help you avoid less-healthy options from the vending machine. 2. Take a 10-minute walking break. If you sit behind a computer most of the time, get up for a quick stroll several times a day. Sitting less and moving more is good for your ticker and your body overall. Keep in mind it's easier to fit in the recommended 30 minutes of movement every day if you divide the time into shorter bouts. 3.Give your screens an earlier bedtime. Too little sleep can hurt your heart and increase your risk for other diseases, such as obesity and type 2 diabetes, which can also affect heart health. Watching TV or using your smartphone or computer close to bedtime can keep you awake. Try giving yourself a deadline for turning off your screens an hour before bedtime every night. Relaxing to music or a book may help you doze off. 4. Have a hearty laugh. Laughter eases stress, which is a good thing because too much stress may boost your risk for heart disease. For a regular dose of mirth, set aside time to watch some laugh-out-loud videos. 5. Compare food labels for sodium content. Too much sodium can boost blood pressure, which is hard on your heart. Different brands of foods can have different sodium amounts. It only takes a moment to read food labels and to choose the brand with the least amount of sodium. You might be surprised to learn that some foods that don't have really high levels of sodium, like bread, are among the top sources of the mineral in the American diet—simply because we may eat several servings of them a day.

|Watson Clinic Blog Get Answers to Your Diabetes Questions Diabetes is a demanding disease-living with it isn't always easy. You may have a lot on your plate every day and a lot on your mind sometimes. Checking blood sugar, taking medication, watching what you eat and other diabetes-related tasks can sap your energy. Worry and frustration over things like glucose numbers or complications may take an emotional toll. All of the stress, strain and fatigue that comes with managing the disease may sometimes lead to what's often called diabetes distress or burnout. Of course, everyone with diabetes has a bad day now and then, but burnout is overwhelming. If you have it, it may put your health at risk. You might start skipping blood sugar checks or medicines. And you may question the usefulness of even following your diabetes routine. If you're feeling overwhelmed by diabetes, it's essential to get help and to take steps to feel better. Here are some suggestions from the American Association of Diabetes Educators: Speak up. Tell your doctor, nurse or diabetes educator how you're feeling. They can help determine if you have diabetes distress or burnout-perhaps by having you fill out a diabetes distress assessment. And they can help you pinpoint its causes and offer ways for you to cope. Seek support. It may help to talk to someone else who has diabetes or to a counselor. Or you might consider joining a diabetes support group. Accept imperfections. No one is perfect 100 percent of the time when it comes to managing diabetes. It's helpful to remind yourself of that. Ask others not to judge you. Your friends and family love you and want you to be healthy. If you feel like they're putting too much pressure on you about taking care of your diabetes, suggest other ways they can help. Watson Clinic's Diabetes Education department offers the information, skills and support you need to become confident in your daily management of diabetes. Topics include blood sugar and glucose monitoring, physical activity, meal planning, medication injection training, stress management, insulin pump support and much more. · Individual classes offered at both Watson Clinic Main and Bartow locations · Group classes offered at Watson Clinic Main · Classes led by certified diabetes educators · Recognized by the American Diabetes Association Awareness is the key to managing your disease. If you're one of the more than 30 million Americans who have been diagnosed with either Type 1, Type 2 or Pre-Diabetes, beginning your education as early as possible will limit your risk of complications and enhance your quality of life. These classes require a referral from a Watson Clinic physician. For more information, call 863-680-7376 or visit WatsonClinic.com/Diabetes. Watson Clinic Blog|
