MILAN (AP) — Being in top physical form helped Spanish soccer player Pablo Marí avoid life-threatening injuries in a knife attack at an Italian shopping center, the surgeon who operated on his wounded back said Friday.

“The surgery was a relatively simple one. Luckily there were only two damaged muscles,” said Osvaldo Chiara, the director of the general surgery and trauma team at the Niguarda hospital in Milan. “(Marí’s) muscular mass is such that the length of the knife that was used couldn’t pass through the rib cage and hit his lung.”

Monza, the Serie A club that Marí plays for on loan from Arsenal, said that Marí should spend another “two or three days” recovering at the hospital.

The club added that Marí will likely need two months of rest before resuming physical activity, while Monza CEO Adriano Galliani said it would likely be three months before Marí played

For Menopause Awareness Month, Acupuncturist Katherine Berry reveals 4 proven reasons acupuncture could be an holistic alternative to HRT for Menopause 

Menopause is associated with a wide range of uncomfortable physical and psychological symptoms.

Although menopause is a natural phenomenon, the years before and after the menopause can be associated with various symptoms, ranging from mild to severe.

According to the British Menopause Society, the average duration of symptoms is a shocking seven years!

Currently, the most common treatment is hormone replacement therapy (HRT). However, many women are reluctant to try HRT and are therefore seeking alternatives.

Since the menopausal transition is such personal journey, there is no ‘one-size-fits all’ solution. Tailored treatments such as those used in traditional Chinese and East Asian medicine (TCEAM) may provide benefits with, or instead of HRT.

  • Physical activity is known to promote bone and muscle health.
  • Aging, lifestyle, and chronic disease can lead to physical inactivity, which is associated with bone and muscle loss.
  • New research has now identified a drug that can mimic physical exercise in mice.
  • The new drug, called locamidazole, can increase bone formation, mineral density, muscle thickness, and muscle strength in mice.

When we are physically active our bones and muscles work together to make them stronger. To maintain bone health, the American College of Sports Medicine recommends a combination of weight-bearing activities 3–5 times per week and resistance exercise 2–3 times a week.

Research has shown lifelong exercise to be beneficial for preserving bone health, and a reduction in physical exercise results in bone loss. The CDC advocates regular physical activity to strengthen

Back pain driving you crazy? Healthista spoke to chiropractor Dr Stefaan Vossen, Clinical Director at Core Clinics who identifies everyday activities making it worse and what you can do to help 

People often relate to their backs, especially their spines, as being somewhat fragile, delicate and in need of protection.

They therefore worry about ‘hurting their back’ by doing simple things, especially if they’ve had back pain or injuries in the past or feel the beginnings of a back pain flare up.

The spine and its supporting structures are very robust and flexible, especially if you regularly work on strengthening and mobilising your back.

these types of events are usually a ‘straw breaking the camel’s back’ moment

More damage tends to be done by overprotecting your back by unnecessarily reducing activity out of fear, than by keeping active.

While people do sometimes experience back pain or their back ‘going out’

‘Mark I’m miserable. None of my clothes fit me and I’ve lost all my confidence’ – these were my exact words as I sat there holding back the tears and asking for weight loss help.
