We’re turning today into Ditch Your Bad Habit Day. Helping families live healthy lives is at the core of what we do every day at JCMG. We’re committed to help you tackle those lifestyle changes!
Smoking is the number one leading cause of lung cancer, contributing to 80-90% of lung cancer deaths. Men who smoke are 23 times more likely to develop cancer than nonsmokers; women 13 times. Nonsmokers have a 20-30% greater chance of developing lung cancer if they are exposed to secondhand smoke at home or work.
Detecting lung cancer early and having it surgically removed has shown to improve five-year survival rates to greater than 70%. JCMG Radiology CT lung screening in high-risk patients has shown to decrease cancer death by up to 20%.
Stress can lead to all sorts of psychological and physical issues. The best place to start reducing stress in your life is to simply talk about it. Our therapists at the Professional Therapy Center are dedicated to helping you overcome fears and feel empowered to resolve your problems—so you can lead a healthy and happy life like you are meant to.
The hardest part about losing weight isn’t dropping pounds—it’s keeping them off. With a three-phase approach, the dieticians and endocrinologists with JCMG’s Weight Treatment Center can enable you to create a healthy lifestyle that sheds pounds and keeps them off.
You don’t have to live in pain. From chronic headaches to back pain, and achy joints to hip pain—JCMG Orthopaedics can alleviate pain, improve function, and support your body’s natural healing abilities. Our goal is to fix the cause of your pain so you can live pain-free.
Sometimes, pain goes deeper than achy limbs and misaligned joints. Many disorders can affect your ability to function on a daily basis, such as osteoporosis, carpal tunnel syndrome, lupus, or arthritis. JCMG Pain Management strives to reduce the intensity of your pain, without the use of opioids, to help you live your life to its fullest.
A good night’s sleep really is integral to the quality of your life. JCMG Sleep Medicine specialists diagnose and treat a wide range of sleep disorders that affect your ability to sleep at night and stay awake during the day. Many things can affect the quality of your sleep, from disorders like apnea and insomnia, to sleeping conditions like snoring and sleepwalking.
Maybe you have trouble understanding conversations, maybe sounds all mash together out in public, or maybe you just can’t hear your favorite show well anymore—if this sounds like you, the JCMG Hearing & Balance Center can help! Communicating easily and comfortably, wherever you may be, is the key to being yourself.
A primary care physician (PCP) is your hub to living a healthy life. Any PCP will tell you that prevention is the best way to stay healthy. Check-ups, immunizations, and screenings can help you stay ahead of any potential health issues. If you don’t have a PCP, our Primary Care Liaison would be happy to set you up!
