Q: How can osteopathic medicine help my cold and sinus symptoms? A: All physicians (M.D.s and D.O.s) get the same general training in medical school. Osteopathic physicians also get extensive training called osteopathic manipulative medicine, which focuses on the musculoskeletal system and its connection from head to toe and from outside in. Osteopathic physicians learn many ways - collectively called osteopathic manipulative treatment - to use their hands to find restrictions and blockages in the body and correct them to improve function.

Mudiay, a powerful 6-5, 200-pound point guard, is projected as one of the top two guards in the draft, which will take place a week from tomorrow.

Brandon Davies is supposed to be long shot to make the 76ers roster. However, the power forward has played like someone who's expected to be a key contributor. "I respect his relentlessness, because he knows he's on the bubble," coach Brett Brown said following Sunday's practice at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. "There's no secret there," Brown added. "He's fighting for his life, and he just won't go away. " Through three preseason games, Davies is shooting 57.9 percent from the field and ranks third in scoring at 11 points per game.

BOSTON - The 76ers' first preseason game in the middle of a major organizational overhaul, isn't really all that important. It's more of a reward for the players to finally get to go up against other players instead of continually beating up on one another. It did, of course, mean a little bit more to Nerlens Noel, who was making his professional debut (Summer League doesn't count). Noel had plenty of family and friends in the stands near his hometown and the jitters seemed to be overflowing for the big man. He seemed understandably rusty, committing two fouls in his first 4 minutes.

WHEN WORD of Joel Embiid's foot injury started to circulate, you could almost feel the disappointment of 76ers fans. With the third pick in the draft, the Sixers were ensured of landing the wonderfully gifted and superbly athletic Andrew Wiggings, the NBA-ready and tough Jabari Parker or a center in Embiid who has been compared to Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon. But when it was learned that the 7-foot Embiid had a stress fracture in the navicular bone in his right foot, the proverbial black cloud seemed to form again over a Sixers organization that won only 19 games last season.
