    Heart Health and Cardiac Rehabilitation

    in Health

    February 11, 2015: February is American Heart Month. Each year in the U.S., 1 in 4 deaths are caused by heart disease, making it the leading cause of death for American men and women. 

    Also, approximately 720,000 Americans will have a heart attack each year – an alarming number that sadly isn’t surprising when one considers that almost half of Americans have at least one of the three key risk factors for heart disease: smoking, high blood pressure, or high LDL cholesterol.

    In this episode a physical therapist outlines the signs of a heart attack, the risk behaviors for heart disease, and the healthy behaviors necessary to avoid heart disease. She also explains the cardiac rehabilitation process that awaits patients who are treated for a heart attack.

    Sleep and Cancer

    in Health

    Sexuality and Cancer

    in Health

    It’s understandable that sexuality may not be the primary focus for many cancer patients, at least not right away. Sexuality is an incredibly personal topic, and each person’s experiences, feelings, and expectations are unique. But at some point, whether because of sexual changes, relationship issues, or difficulties with fertility, patients realize the impact of cancer on their sexuality.
    By learning about how your sexuality is likely to change and getting suggestions for healing, you become a partner and advocate in your own care.

    Breast Cancer Rehabilitation and Healthy Living

    in Family

    Hearing the words "you have breast cancer" results in a life-altering journey that ripples into every area of a survivor's life. Lockey Maisonneuve is using the lessons she learned during her own battle to teach others about life-enriching strategies.   Lockey Maisonneuve is a Stage 3 cancer survivor. Prior to her battle with cancer, Lockey was an enthusiastic and driven personal trainer.   In 2006, Lockey endured an 18-month battle with breast cancer. Along with a regimen of chemotherapy, surgical procedures were also included. Once she completed her treatment and recovery period, Lockey realized that many survivors did not know how to make themselves whole in body and spirit. The value of physical activity and exercise were sorely lacking in her recovery protocol.   It was then that Lockey decided to do something about it.   Upon completion of a specialized exercise training course through the Cancer Exercise Training Institute, Lockey created ‘MovingOn,’ a rehabilitative exercise program geared toward cancer patients. The focus was not just on the physical being, but the whole person. The ultimate goal of the program is to help women regain control of their bodies and their emotional beings.   Lockey has appeared on WABCTV, WCBSTV, News 12, WKTU & Talk About Health Radio, to name but a few. She is also the recipient of the 2013 American Cancer Society’s “Luster for Life Award.”   Join us on Monday, October 28, 2013 at 7 p.m. EST as we discuss breast cancer rehabilitation through exercise and other important methods with Lockey Masonneuve.   Click HERE to connect with Lockey at her website.

    in Pets

    Robert Porter is the physical rehabilitation treatment supervisor at MedVet Mandeville and has been on staff since 2006.

    Robby has worked in canine rehabilitation since 1998 and is looked at by his peers as one of the pioneers in his field. He has a strong knowledge base in kinesiology and a great interest in positive training approaches to therapeutic exercises. His MedVet patients from the gulf coast region not only benefit from his exercises but also love to perform them for him.

    Robby has studied gait analysis using slow motion cameras which has helped develop many exercises used all over the world today. His many self-produced “How To” canine exercise videos help spread this knowledge and have helped others develop their skills as therapists.

    Robby Porter is also one of MedVet’s Media Managers, writing as well as creating visual content for our social media.

    Just like humans, pets may need rehabilitation after an accident or medical procedure, or to help manage a chronic condition.

    MedVet Rehabilitation practitioners provide effective and personalized physical rehabilitation using state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to maximize the opportunity for full recovery. MedVet Rehabilitation Practitioners have completed advanced training in veterinary physical rehabilitation.

    Many pets respond well to rehabilitation, including those with orthopedic, neurologic and medical conditions. We also use rehabilitation to help pets live a more complete and active life by providing geriatric support, obesity management and athletic conditioning.
