One of the really incredible things technology will give us this year is an artificial pancreas for diabetes patients. It works just like a regular pancreas monitoring blood sugar levels and releases insulin.

It will be a life changer for millions, and will be ready by the middle of this year. Another cool piece of tech is having surgeons using augmented reality and 3d visualizations for safer procedures.

It will allow surgeons to pinpoint cells with cancer mutations a lot easier reducing the chance of the cancer coming back. 2017 really is a banner year for the healthcare industry, and technology is advancing fast enough to help solve some of the most complex problems that have plagued doctors and the healthcare industry for decades.

Pain & Exercise

Aerobic Exercise Helps Those with Musculoskeletal Pain.
A study recently investigated the effects of aerobic exercise on pain perception, sensitivity, and health-related quality of life in fifty patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain.

Researchers randomly assigned participants to either a control group or an aerobic exercise group that involved aerobic exercise on a treadmill for 30 minutes.

Investigators found that those in the short-term aerobic exercise group experienced decreased pain sensitivity, increased aerobic capacity, and significant improvements in health-related quality of life when compared with members of control group. Doctors of chiropractic often advise patients under treatment for musculoskeletal pain to engage in physical activity as part of the recovery process.
