Pain Management When it's Most Convenient
Mark Alyn talks with Moshe Lewis, MD about having to wait for a scheduled doctors appointment, even if there's no emergency.
Ever since I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life, I have worked passionately to make it a reality and I have always believed that if I am to be successful in my pursuits, I will find that success through balance.
It is because of this I want to introduce to you a television program called Balance. Balance is a nationally-televised cable TV show that explores connections that people have made between health and wealth. The essential idea behind the show is that everyone is entitled to realize their full potential yet often what stands in the way is poor health or poor finance. However, with a balanced lifestyle that emphasizes wellness as well as taking care of yourself and your community, success can become a reality. The program offers the personal stories of guests who have achieved success in their careers and personal lives and can reflect on the — sometimes arduous — journey.
I was asked to speak about my own journey and I am excited to announce that the episode will air on the Discovery Fit & Health channel on Thursday, November 15, 2012 at 5:00 AM. You will also get to meet Gavin Keilly, founder of GBK Productions, and hear how he came to be a successful entrepreneur and charity contributor as well as hosts Steven E. Schmitt and Trissa Tismal.
Dr. Lewis explains how he integrates Eastern and Western Medicine practices to treat injuries and relieve pain.

It's no secret that it can be really difficult to maintain your fitness and overall health when so many of your days are spent in the office. Employees can develop carpal tunnel from repetitive wrist movements and a constant deficiency in circulation can cause a number of cardiovascular problems. There are, however, some great solutions to prevent discomfort and a deterioration in health while at work. Some of the best results come from employers that lead by example and implement programs such as a walking group or a push for ergonomics awareness.
A recent post on the [Nuesoft Blog](http://www.nuesoft.com/blog/?p=714&preview=true) shares some great advice when it comes to workplace wellness. In the featured Neusoft video podcast, I talk with Lindsey Coates about how to engage in a routine that works for everyone as well as how to encourage good habits and comfort. Here are some ideas to get you started:
1. Designate a coordinator to get everyone involved.
2. Create a board that will centralize all wellness information (leaflets, routines, leader board – if you want to make it a competition, etc.).
3. Walk as a group during lunch around the building or floor you are on.
4. Sit on a yoga ball for an hour a day while working on the computer. When your hour is up pass it to another team member.
5. Sign up as a group to do a 5k, softball team or other sporting activity. It’ll also promote morale!
The Pain Coach—a TV show concept introduced by Dr. Lewis and his team of experts—will feature stories of patient's stories of pain and how they overcame it through proper rehabilitation, such as acupuncture, therapy, physical activity, and the right medications.

A heart warming video created by the Marriott Bridges Foundation featuring Dr. Moshe Lewis.
“Boomeritis” refers to injuries to older amateur athletes from the baby boomer generation. In this Mind Your Body episode, I interviewed Dr. Moshe Lewis, a California pain management and rehabilitation specialist who most often treats baby boomers with back and knee pain—as the body ages, wear and tear happen. To counter aging, he recommends the triple threat of 1) heat to increase blood flow 2) ice for its natural anti-inflammatory powers and 3) activities in water to maintain buoyancy and offset gravity.
Are you a well-intentioned “weekend warrior?” Great! You’re receiving benefits that boost mood, reduce stress, increase muscle and cardiovascular health and provide social stimulation. Sporting on weekends only, however, increases the risk of a muscle strain, ligament tear or joint injury. To keep problems at bay, Dr. Lewis recommends that you…
1. Reach for the Sky: Stretching is the first step in a warm-up routine to prepare the muscles for the work they are going to do and prevent muscle strain injuries. More advanced stretching exercises like yoga and Pilates also improve your balance, core strength, back strength and conditioning for the spine.
2. Pump It Up: Strength training builds endurance, providing resistance for muscles to function at their full capacity. To build strength and bulk, gradually move to higher weights with fewer repetitions. When using heavier weights, don’t forget to rest and pace yourself.
3. Know Your Condition: Even slight, simple aerobic conditioning will change both your weekend performance and your everyday energy level. Activities like light jogging, hiking and rowing are easy, low-impact ways to optimize cardiovascular health and limit damage to the cartilage and joints while burning calories, thereby mobilizing muscles naturally. Aerobic fitness classes, dance classes, golf, tennis and cross-country skiing provide sound cross-training of multiple muscle groups simultaneously.
4. Consider Supplements: From Omega 3s to glucosamine to antioxidants to vitamin D, the right nutrition and dietary supplements can make a big difference in your sports performance and your general wellbeing. Always consult your doctor first.
5. Have Happy Feet, Healthy Feet: Good ergonomics, posture and even shoes can make or break your technique. Consider seeing a podiatrist for advice on inserts and shoe wear, especially if you have foot pain. An investment in proper foot support encourages long-term orthopedic health.
6. Follow the Fun Factor: It’s far easier to keep up on your regular conditioning if you genuinely enjoy it and look forward to it. Mix it up and try different activities like swing dancing, Zumba, kayaking or dog Frisbee—the last one is another great reason to adopt a dog from a shelter!
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- On Monday the investigation into Michael Jackson's death appears to be widening. A police source says investigators plan to talk to any doctor who has prescribed medication to Jackson. ABC7 spoke with a Jackson family friend who met with Joe Jackson over the weekend.

Moshe Lewis just got back to San Francisco on Monday afternoon. He said Joe Jackson was much quieter than usual. He says he really seems to be in complete shock that hi son, Michael Jackson, is gone.
"What you're not seeing is that he's just trying to stand tall and not cry," says Lewis.
Lewis and his wife, Tami, met with Joe Jackson and Rev. Al Sharpton Sunday before the Black Entertainment Awards. They flew down to L.A. from San Francisco to express their sympathies to the Jackson family whom Moshe Lewis has known for more than 20 years.
"There's no question they're grieving. I think they want to show unity, there's not going to be any finger pointing toward any person or physician," says Lewis.
It does appear the investigation is broadening. Jackson's personal doctor, Dr. Conrad Murray, was interviewed by the L.A. Police Department. But a police source now says detectives would like to talk to all doctors who have prescribed Jackson medicine. They also returned to Jackson's home Monday to gather some medications.
Murray's attorney, Ed Chernoff, on Monday addressed reports that Murray injected Jackson with Demerol before he died.
"Dr. Murry never prescribed Demerol, never administered, never saw him, Michael Jackson, take Demerol. And that goes as well for Oxycontin too," says Chernoff.
"It's something that is easily verified. Most cardiologists don't write lots of pain medications, so I suspect that's true," said Lewis.
Lewis is a pain management doctor. He says it's no secret Jackson was on pain medication, but he says the effects of the drugs can be deceiving.
"Michael was out and about and obviously planning a big tour, so he certainly seemed in command," says Lewis.
Dr. Lewis did not treat Michael Jackson. He is a family friend. And he wanted to bring the message back to the Bay Area that the Jacksons are truly grateful for the outpouring of love and support.
The Pain Coach—a TV show concept introduced by Dr. Lewis and his team of experts—will feature stories of patient's stories of pain and how they overcame it through proper rehabilitation, such as acupuncture, therapy, physical activity, and the right medications. Every one of Dr. Lewis' patients has a fascinating story to tell. Let Dr. Lewis and his team guide you through their recovery. Learn about how to deal with pain through entertaining and educational shows.
