  • From Millennium Pain Center

    What is the difference between acute and chronic pain?

    Acute pain is of short duration, usually the result of an injury, surgery or illness. Chronic pain is an ongoing condition, often in the back, neck, head, as wells as neuropathic pain (nerve injury pain), musculoskeletal pain, and pain related to illness. Your physician may refer you to the Pain Management Center because your chronic pain condition has not responded to conventional therapies.

    Treatments for acute and chronic pain are generally quite different. In some cases, acute and chronic pain can be stopped or alleviated by a single procedure or series of procedures. Sometimes, chronic pain is part of a widespread disease process, and the specific cause may be difficult to pinpoint. Once we have identified the specific factor causing the pain, we may be able to treat it so that the condition no longer occurs. In some patients, the specific factor causing the pain--such as cancer--cannot be changed, but we may be able to reduce the pain or help the patient to better cope with the pain through a combination of medical, psychosocial and rehabilitation techniques.

  • From Ralph Garber - Garber Heating & Cooling

    Do geothermal systems require much maintenance?

    No. Geothermal systems are virtually maintenance free. When installed properly, the buried loop will last for generations. And the other half of the operation – the unit's fan, compressor and heat pump – is housed indoors, protected from harsh weather. Periodic checks and filter changes are the only required maintenance.

  • From Design Plus Granite

    What are the advantages of having granite?

    • Granite can withstand heat up to 1800 degrees.
    • Granite can be used as a cutting board (although we don't recommend this as it will dull your knives).
    • For those who love to bake, granite is the perfect prep surface for all your pastries.
    • With your granite counter top your kitchen will look as beautiful as the day it was installed for many, many years to come.
    • Unlike plastic counter top material, (remember the yellow Formica from the 1960's?) granite is not a "dated" counter top material. Natural stone has been used throughout the centuries and has maintained "timeless beauty".
