A. Unfortunately, some funeral directors are more concerned about the money than your feelings. There is usually a reason someone is trying to transfer their preneed. A bad funeral director may think if they pressure you that you may change your mind and not transfer, leaving your prearranged funds in their care. We here at Goglin Funeral Homes explain to our families that prearranged funds are not our money until we earn it. It s very hard to provide a meaningful service if people can t trust you and are not satisfied from the beginning.

I have been doing some high intensity interval training for a couple of months now and am finding myself more sore than usual. Any suggestions? Yankton Vermillion Sioux City 2018 Broadway, Yankton 605-665-4348 Q. What is Herd Immunity ? A. Shona Jussel, RPh When you get vaccinated, you are not only protecting yourself, but also those around you. This is called herd, or community immunity. When enough people in the community are vaccinated, a protective barrier is formed and disease is less likely to spread. Individuals may not be able to receive vaccines due to serious allergies or weakened immune systems caused by certain health conditions such as cancer or HIV. Newborn babies are also at risk for diseases until they are old enough to receive their vaccines. A circle of protection may be provided for the newborn by ensuring that all caregivers, siblings, parents and grandparents receive recommended vaccinations. Two important vaccines are the flu vaccine and Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis). There has been a recent resurgence of pertussis (whooping cough) and only 20% of eligible adults are up to date on this vaccine. These vaccines can be given conveniently here at Hy-Vee Pharmacy. Contact us at 605-665-8261 and we will be happy to help you with any vaccination needs or questions you may have. Pharmacy 665-8261 Q. Dr. Bailey, I have difficulty hearing and want to Bailey, hear better, but I am afraid if I KendraCCC-A Au.D. get hearing aids it will make my hearing worse. What should I do? A. You are not alone. Many people are fearful hearing aids will accelerate the progression of their hearing loss. However, the opposite is true. Hearing loss affects our hearing nerves like a cast affects our muscles. When our hearing nerves aren t stimulated they weaken and become less efficient just like our muscles when they have been in a cast for several weeks. Hearing aids amplify sounds that would otherwise not be loud enough to stimulate our impaired ears. Similar to how lifting weights exercises our muscles, hearing aids exersize our ears. This is why it is not wise to procrastinate when you realize hearing difficulties. For more information, feel free to contact our clinic at (605)655-1220. Avera Sacred Heart Hospital Professional Office Pavilion 409 Summit St., Ste. 2600, Yankton 668-8601 Podiatry Angie O Connor Clinical Exercise Specialist High intensity interval training or HIIT workouts are very popular. With everyone really strapped for time they ve become a great way to fit in a good workout that burns a lot of calories in a short amount of time. While they have lots of benefits, I think you may have found one of the pitfalls. HIIT workouts really work your body hard and if you re doing them more than three times per week for an extended period of time, you might find that your body needs more recovery time than that. Try mixing in sub-maximal steady state exercise or something that keeps your heart rate moderately elevated for a longer period of time. Instead of 15-20 one-minute intervals with rest periods in between, try running or hop on a rowing machine and keep it at a moderate pace for 30-minutes without stopping. This type of exercise will also help remove the lactic acid build-up from your HIIT workout (likely part of what s making you sore) and prepare you for your next workout. 501 Summit, Yankton 668-8357 That s an easy answer we service all makes and models of furnaces!

Ear, Nose & Throat Chiropractic Q. A. Curt Brodsky Service Manager Pharmacy/Nutrition Funeral & Cremation my funeral Q. Why hascalled my family director What makes and models of furnaces does Kalins Indoor Comfort service? Q.What can I do for my hammertoes? A. Christine Wiarda, Hammertoes are a common deformity of the foot D.P.M. that causes the toe bend at the middle joint. When this occurs, there can be pain at the top, as well as the tip of the toe, with walking and with shoe pressure. Hammertoes are hereditary, but can be exaggerated with poor shoes that don t allow for adequate room for the toes. Hammertoes can be treated conservatively with offloading pads and frequent trimming of the calluses that may form at the top or tip of the toe due to pressure. If this fails, then surgical treatment options may be necessary. ammertoes can be a concerning deformity of the foot when it comes to patients H with diabetes as well as those with neuropathy, which is the condition that causes numbness, burning and tingling to the feet. When conservative treatment fails, surgical treatment includes the release of the tendons causing the deformity. If the deformity of the toe is severe enough, a fusion of the bones of the toe or removing the joint may be indicated. The simplest surgical procedure is called a flexor tenotomy. This can be an in office procedure in which the toe is anesthetized and the tendon is released through a small stab incision to the toe. Healing takes less than one week, and there are typically no stiches. The goal of this procedure is to straighten the toe enough to relieve pressure. If this is unsuccessful and calluses continue to occur, then the other procedures (fusion or joint removal) can be pursued in the operating room.
