"If you needed medical care in one of the following specialties, which doctor would you choose?" That's the question that thousands of medical professionals across the country are asked each year in a coast-to-coast effort to identify the nation's most outstanding physicians - and it's the reason why neurosurgeon Dr. Kapil Moza has been named a Super Doctor a remarkable five years in a row.
About a year after my pregnancy, I was still suffering from what I thought were standard pains that come with carrying a baby. But it kept getting worse - spasms, leg weakness, pain walking/sitting/standing and constant discomfort became my norm. I treated it with physical therapy, Pilates, chiropractic, work accommodations like a standing desk, OTC pain relievers and more, but nothing really helped.

And I never wanted to do anything because I always felt terrible. I would just end up lying on the couch, trying to make it go away."

FOCUS ON YOUR HEALTH
Sure, dental care can seem to be pretty much the same at the root of it (Get it!?). So, does it really matter who does the cleanings, fillings, veneers, whitenings and check ups?

Ok, maybe I didn't die when I got a colon hydrotherapy treatment, but my dream of one day running for national public office just might be based solely on my desire to write about it. It's a risk I am willing to take.

I don't usually get medical-procedure advice from Khloe Kardashian, but when she overshared, "My sisters, they've had kids, and there's a vagina lasering thing to tighten. So in my household, all they do is talk about this vagina laser," I had to learn more. After all, I'm a mom who's given birth to three kids. If there's a way to feel better "down there," I want to know about it.
