Migraines are a widespread problem, affecting millions of people. Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) offers a natural, noninvasive treatment for migraines and tension headaches.

If you’re in your late 40s or early 50s, you may begin experiencing symptoms of perimenopause, the lead up to menopause. Menopause is marked by the absence of menstrual periods for a full year. Perimenopause can last for months or years as hormones change. The process of menopause typically takes place from age 40 to age 60, although the average age of menopause is 51, according to The Mayo Clinic. Premature menopause can occur before age 40.


It’s no secret that doctors frequently recommend exercise for patients who are experiencing depression and anxiety. But why? What is it about physical movement that helps us mentally and emotionally? Research has demonstrated that physical activity helps improve mood and decreases sleep complaints. In short, when you move your body, it releases endorphins—the feel-good chemicals that are just waiting to be set free. Aerobic exercise raises your heart rate and core body temperature—it is especially good at releasing endorphins.

After working in the garden and yard, lower back pain can strike you down, causing you to ache for days. You can prevent back pain by practicing good posture while working outside. Whether you’re sitting on the mower or pushing it, digging holes to plant trees, or weeding the vegetable garden, there are several steps you can take to avoid back aches. Last month, we covered the importance of good body mechanics to ensure your spinal health. This month, we expand on that with five specific tips to ease your work in the garden and yard.


Spinal health continues to be one of the most important aspects of your wellbeing. Millions of people experience neck and back pain every day. According to Georgetown University’s Health Policy Institute, back pain is a leading cause of work limitations and one of the costliest conditions in the U.S. People miss work, lose income, and experience pain, which are all great reasons to practice good body mechanics at work and at home.


We all know that carrying excess weight can have negative effects on your long-term health. Plus, being overweight can also damage your confidence and self-image. If you have tried to lose weight on your own with little success, or if your weight goes down, then up and up some more, it may be time to try medical weight loss. Medical weight loss is supported by a physician who examines you and evaluates you for any possible causes of weight gain or excess weight.


Millions of people suffer from seasonal allergies, indoor allergies, and pet allergies. Some find relief from over-the-counter medications. While those medications can help immensely, they merely treat allergy symptoms, often without a physician’s diagnosis. People who have allergy-triggered asthma are among the patients who can benefit the most from allergy treatment. For more effective allergy treatment, a person should be tested for allergies and treated according to those specific allergies. At Infinity Medical Clinic, Dr. Stemmerman performs skin testing to identify allergic triggers and follows it with immunotherapy that is designed specifically for each allergen. The testing and immunotherapy treatment provides convenient access to accurate and effective allergy treatment.
