massage can hekp with osterarthritis because it helps relieve pain as the muscles become relaxed, allowing for some better range of motion. having knowledge of trigger points for your client could also help with pain relief. always keeping the clients needs up to date you can change what movements and motions are used from appointment to appointment.

Based on the results, I am at average risk for lung cancer. I was raised by a smoker, so I know that the second-hand exposure puts me at greater risk. I have had my home tested for radon, and the results were good. I eat at least 3 servings of fruits and vegetables per day, but I know I could increase my intake. As far as exercise, I ride my Peloton an average of 15 minutes at least 3 times per week. To decrease my risk I can increase the duration or frequency of my rides and add in daily walks.

What are stem cells?--- Cells of the body which can divide and become differentiated. When an organism grows, stem cells specialize , and take specific functions.
Where do stem cells come from?--- Stem cells come from embryos that are 3-5 days old. At this stage, an embryo is called blastocyst and has about 150 cells.
What are medical treatments that use stem cells?--- Stem cell transplants use stem cells to replace cells damage by chemotherapy or disease. Also they serve a purpose for the donor's immune system to fight some types of cancer. Adult stem cells are used or umbilical cord blood.
What is the controversy surrounding stem cell research?---- The controversy of surrounding stem celll research is the destruction of embryos. So it can be an unethical issue for most because to take the stem cells, an unimplanted human embryo(6-8 day of dev.) is destroyed.

"In Illinois, the statute says that any licensed medical professional “who, in good faith, provides emergency care without fee to a person, shall not, as a result of his or her acts or omissions, except willful or wanton misconduct on the part of the person, in providing the care, be liable for civil damages.” 745 ILCS 49/25 (https://www.appellatestrategist.com/2014/03/articles/jurisdictions/illinois/illinois-supreme-court-defines-good-samaritan-in-medical-malpractice-case/)
A person who is a licensed medical professional can in good faith help and not be responsible for death or injury unless there was something that occurred that was misconduct.

I critiqued a client intake form, amta_client_intake_form.pdf, at amtamassage.org. This form does not have a spot for a facility or therapist's name. The form is a resource, so if I used it I would customize it for my use and add the facility and therapist's names. In the client agreement section of the form it states "I am aware of the benefits and risks of massage and give my consent for massage." The form does not actually specify the benefits, risks, and adverse effects so I would need to tell my clients the benefits and risks and document that I provided that information. The form did not contain a right of refusal or treatment costs and forms of payment, but ask for the client's health insurance information and the form has a section that the client signs that states "I am responsible for all charges for all service provided...". The form also does not address cancellations and no-show policies, but under the contract for care it states "I will participate fully as a member of my healthcare team." The health history, current health, massage experience, personal information, and insurance sections of the form are quite comprehensive. The client signature and date of initial visit is on the top of the first page, so I would add a line for the printed name of the client before the signature.

A responder who is a licensed medical professional in Illinois is protected from liability for civil damages under the state's Good Samaritan Law if he acts in good faith and provides emergency care to a person without fee. Only in the case of willful or wanton misconduct on the part of the person responding to the emergency, the victim or his or her family would have rights and the person responding to the emergency then may be liable for civil damages.
