Neck Pain - Prescription for Your Health - New Radio Media
March 19, 2018

Prescription for Your Health – Neck Pain


One of the leading causes of lost work that I see in my office is neck pain, but we don’t hear much about it the print, radio, or TV media. There are many things that cause neck pain including poor posture and repetitive positioning – especially during long periods of time in front of a computer. It can also be the result of trauma, such as whiplash caused by a car accident. This issue is especially germane in states like Michigan that has no fault laws; and there can be secondary gain issues when attorneys and insurance companies become involved.

Fortunately, most cases of neck pain resolve in a few days, but when it doesn’t then that’s a good time to see your doctor for a consultation. Your doctor will want to know if you are having any numbness, tingling, or weakness going down your arms or if you’re having difficulty walking. These are signs of either a herniated or ruptured disc. If these are accompanied by a loss of bowel or bladder function then your doctor will want to order an MRI or CT to rule out a cord compression of your spine. Luckily, these are rare occurrences in clinical practice.  In most cases of neck pain an anti-inflammatory such as Motrin or Aleve will alleviate your pain. Moist heat or ice you will also help you get relief.

You can avoid neck strain in your car by adjusting the head restraint so it sits as close to the top of your head as possible. When using a computer screen, make sure the center of the screen is slightly below eye level. If your workplace offers an adjustable desk, then this is your most ergonomic option. Sometimes sleeping on your back or stomach can help prevent neck pain.  Also, I should note that regular stretching and taking breaks can minimize your neck pain whether it’s the computer or from whiplash..

Finally, I would also like to mention that a cervical collar which was once the standard of treatment for whiplash is rarely used these days because it can actually slow the recovery process.

Ben Batfleck and The Saga of the Ever-Changing Cowl


With the rumor that “Flashpoint” will be Ben Affleck’s last go in the cape of cowl, speculation has turned to whom will be his replacement? With Matt Reeves now at the helm of the solo Batman Film, and apparently eager to recast, two names have risen to the top of the speculation heap… Jake Gyllenhaal and Jon Hamm… Both great actors to be sure, but is that who want playing the legendary caped crusader? One of my big issues with Batfleck, besides the material he was given, was I had a hard time getting past the Ben Affleck of it all. All I could see was Ben Affleck as Batman. It was hard for me to accept him as Bruce Wayne because all I saw Holden “Friggin” McNeil, a role Affleck made famous in Kevin Smith’s View Askewniverse.

Films such as Chasing Amy and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back… I suggest that instead of looking inward, Warner Brothers searches outward… Why not cast an unknown who is specifically cast to fit the Bruce Wayne/Batman mold? Find a name not yet known who can deserve the Cape and Cowl on acting chops alone? I have no doubt Gyllenhaal or Hamm would give great performances… but could we get past the Gyllenhaal and Hamm of it all?

These are questions to ponder…

New Radio Media – Business News That’s Wherever You Are!


New Radio Media has business shows you won’t find on Detroit radio. In fact, the Business Channel lineup now features two live, weekly, interactive video podcasts that you won’t find anywhere else.

Talking Biz covers the latest business trends, both locally and nationwide. The show also spotlights local business news – bringing in entrepreneurs from Detroit and the surrounding areas to talk about how they have overcome obstacles to find their own unique success story. Hosts, Paul Bensman and Peter Perlman (both Detroit area entrepreneurs) add humor and insight with their own anecdotes. The audience is encouraged to call in with questions and comments during this weekly live show. It’s video, so you can watch – or just listen to the show like radio. A live streaming video is available on mobile devices – just get the free New Radio Media app. Missed the live show? Archived episodes are available on demand.  Whether you just listen, watch, or join the conversation, you’ll always find something interesting and be entertaining on “Talking Biz” every Saturday from 8 am – 10 am EST.

Biz Buys is hosted by expert business broker, Armen Nazarian. You might not know it, but there are real estate agents who specialize in helping people buy and sell businesses. You don’t have to start your own business; you can buy an established and proven business. From mom and pop stores to franchise restaurants to dry cleaning plants to assisted living facilities to bars and nightclubs – just about every type of business you can imagine is available for sale in Michigan, especially in the Detroit area. If you’ve been thinking about buying a business, Armen and his guests on “Biz Buys” will help you learn more about the types of businesses that are available, how a business is valued, what businesses are best for new business owners, what franchises are hot, what it’s really like being a business owner, and more. Watch this live video podcast every Wednesday at 1 pm (online or with the free app!), or catch up on episodes you missed with New Radio Media’s on-demand archives.

Rise above your competition with video content

How will you be heard above all the other voices in the online conversation?
The answer is simple – rise above your competition with video content.

According to industry estimates
One minute of video = 1.8 million words of text in the message communicated.

Detroit radio and news outlets can’t provide the value and the reach you need. Video is the most efficient and effective way to get your message across, promote your business, become an influencer and build your brand. Communication today is visual. If you want to sell it, they have to see it!


Video effectively and efficiently reaches your customers where they live – on an undeniably massive scale.

Video content is the key to getting your message across – whether you’re a retailer, a service provider, an entertainer, or an online personality, you need video. Video content sets you above podcasts and other audio/only platforms like radio.

  • Tell your story
  • Build your brand
  • Meet your customers in a new space
  • Tap into the best value in multi-channel marketing
