New Pain Treatment Could Replace Opioids

Doctors from across the country have found a new pain treatment method significantly reduces the need for post op opioids. The finding promises to completely revolutionize the way we treat pain.

How Ex-Yankees Ace CC Sabathia Found Sobriety

Not everyone was happy when CC Sabathia entered rehab back in 2015; not one single person is doubting his decision now. How could they? That move most likely saved Sabathia’s life. That’s some of the reveal in HBO’s Under the Grapefruit Tree. But it’s far from the doc’s only takeaway. Sabathia’s career would go on strong for another four years.
