Sullivan county community hospital's physical therapy department is on the cutting edge when it comes to regenerative medicine.
Now offering a treatment called a-stem.
It is one of the most researched and effective treatments available.
Learn how a-stem works and she learned from a therapist who treats patients and of course, heard from a patient as well.
>> the healing process can be rigorous when it comes to your muscles and scar tissue rather than undergoing surgery or other invasive treatments, now you have options.
>> it helps with chronic conditions, maybe other avenues that have been attempted and not been successful.
We see a lot of those types of diagnoses and it is pretty helpful.
It can start as soon as swelling of the soft tissue and bruising ub is -- subsides.
Tennis elbow is another typical treatment.
Rotator cuff problems, all of those would be candidates.
There are three specifically crafted tools that take the treatment to the next level.
>> it is a hands on technique, which is always good.
You have a little bit of time that talk to the patient while you're right there, you can feel there with the tools.
You're treating, but you're also evaluating every time you see the patient.
>> during therapy you were encouraged to stick with your normal activities.
>> the theory behind it is that you're using the muscles in your normal fashion while you're going through the treatment.
>> i can continue to do my nomal activities.
It helps, but i don't have to interrupt my daily life.
>> it doesn't just treat the symptoms or hide a problem with temporary solution.
Instead, it is a process that stimulates the body to regenerate and remodel tissues, which makes patients happy.
>> i felt like it really has helped my tissues gained strength without hurting as much anymore.
I've been able to actually do more with my lifting and workouts and well, anything.
>> a session can last as little as 15 minutes.
A typical course of treatment usually lasts four to six weeks.

They are competing not just against each other but with each other.
>> as i look at that video on all of these amazing kids, i can't help but think, that's our future right there.
How does this help prepare our kids for the future.
>> that is why we do it.
This is the future.
One of the main things it does is this shows the kids at a young age that they are interesting, that they are fun.
More importantly, it gives them the confidence to understand that they are smart enough that they can do this.
It shows them hundreds, if not thousands of incredible careers and opportunities for them to pursue.
At the end of the day, you said it right, these kids are the future.

What is pinky doing right now?
>> i think she is about to pick up the balls.
Look at that.
How did you all decide to make pinky?
I feel like i'm watching a sport.
We first had a different robot so that it could push the balls off-the-wall.
We wanted to be able to pick them up off-the-wall and we started improving and came up with what we have now.

They can find out about the program and starting teams and events, we need programs like this, accessible and available everywhere.

>> each cost more than $8,000.
A price we are trying to get down.
>> we think the important thing to do is get this technology down to youth players.
They are working to get a prototype out on the field by this summer.
To do that, they are using funding by the nfl.
>> very impressive indeed.

The author of a book termed movie titled "room" is now turning her talents to writing kids books.
Emma donahue talked to hazelmarie about this book, how you can win it and the design for a new vigo county jail.and there's unclaimed property in indiana.

>> it like creeped me out movie.
Brie larson starred in it.
Hazelmarie talked with emma about the new chapter in her life.
Writing books now for young adult readers.
More importantly what this first book she's written is all about.
The family is composed of two same-sex couples who like to win the lottery.
>> all different corners of the world.
Very modern in some ways.
But very traditional and loving in others.
The big drama of this book is that a grandfather that they have never met before has to suddenly move in with them, because he has developed dementia.
It is kind of like a modern family but in the literary sense.
This is pretty cool.
Keeping that kind of cozy vibe that we have come to expect.
>> is it challenging to go from that one book the room, which is kind of a mystery type of thing to now taking a young adult audience.
>> i would say that it is a challenge to write for middle grade, definitely.
In some ways it is harder.
Child readers are so engaged and so interested in all of the little details and get all of the little jokes.
>> where do you find inspiration to write this book or any of your books.
My kids get off the school bus and i whip open my phone and jot things down.
Typically, i just take a situation that i have experienced and i would just imagine what if it went farther than that.
What if my kids behaved even worse.
>> if a tantrum goes to the extreme.
>> well, i have to ask, like do you enjoy seeing your literary pieces being transformed to the silver screen, i mean, that's what like.
>> i was involved in the movie room as the screen writer and i got such a kick out of seeing that same story.
Be told in a totally different way through faces and through light and through the so moving performances.
I'm not always trying to keep it the same.
I have to ask what's next for you.
> i'm working hard on the second book in the lottery series because this family is so big and so adventurous and so entertaining, i feel they need several books to have their say.
>> in today's good travel segment, we are going to travel just south of our area where a week from saturday.

He's a cocktail aficionado.
Welcome to "good day live."
>> thanks for having us.
>> i guess the first question i have, the rich history of the derby for those of us who watch it on tv, what are we missing by not being there.
Tell me about some of this rich history.
>> well, certainly, you're missing the pageantry if you're not here.
Most people don't realize that the derby was inspired by the epson derby which is run in england.
Travelled from kentucky to england and so inspired by that horse race, he said we got to have one back home just like it.
The derby is full of english tradition.
Such as getting dressed up to go to the racetrack.
>> i've always wanted to wear a hat and drink a mint julep while doing so.
>> tell me about the perfect mint julep.

Loads of mint, loads of fresh ice.
Wonderful aromas that people associate with spring and the derby.

He has added english elements to the derby julep.

Something we're very proud of at woodford reserve.
I'm extremely honored to make the drink.

Bitters and of course, woodford reserve.
>> i hear there's a thousand dollar mint julep cup.
>> a thousand dollars, that's a lot for a drink.
You get this beautiful cup, gold accents and silver, just a tremendous cup.
It is a collectors cup.
A unique drink, more importantly, the thousand dollars, the proceeds from each of the reserves goes to a charity and this year our charity is actually the kentucky derby museum right here at churchill downs, because we want to preserve the heritage of racing in america and in kentucky.
It is a load of fun, but you also helped donate to a good cause.
>> there you have it.
>> look at that.
>> i have to ask, when you're making the mint julep, do you go heavy on the woodford bourbon.
>> not too heavy, everything is balanced for a reason.
>> 1 1/2 ounces of woodford reserve.
So everything in unison and always in balance.
>> i love it indeed.
>> i don't know which is better, the thousand dollar cup or being served by a handsome gentleman like yourself.
