Cold-Pressed Juice vs. Regular Juice
Juicing is a growing health trend across the country – but what’s the difference between traditionally pressed juice and cold-pressed juice? For one, cold-pressing uses 10,000 pounds of pressure to extract juice from fruits and veggies, which is thought to maximize nutrients. Hayden Slater, co-founder of Pressed Juicery joins The Doctors' Better Body Panel to explain further.

Rotator Cuff Injury: Rehab or Surgery?
Jon, 36, is an avid athlete and martial arts actor who suffered a torn rotator cuff years ago, and still experiences painful flare-ups today. The rotator cuff is made up of the muscles and tendons in your shoulder, which connect the upper arm bone with the shoulder blade. Rotator cuff injuries can be any type of irritation or damage to the muscles and tendons and half the time, will heal with self-care measures and exercise therapy. Jon’s physicians recommended conflicting solutions: Rehab or orthopedic surgery, and he reaches out to The Doctors to find out which route to take to best heal his injury. Dr. Adickes explains rotator cuff injuries, and what Jon can expect from both treatments.
