Tips For Healthy Living!

A person's overall health is affected by the relationship between the body's structure and how it is functioning.  Chiropractic care ensures that the parts of the body are working together in harmony.  The spine acts as the main support for the body, protecting the spinal cord, which connects a large part of the peripheral nervous system to the brain. This is why a minor injury to the spine or overuse of muscles can significantly alter one’s strength, sensation, and performance.

Spinal manipulation for chronic low back pain and other musculoskeletal conditions is the most common treatment sought by patients in the US. This has prompted researchers to study the effectiveness and safety of such treatments. The most recent finding confirms why chiropractic is important. The National Institute for Health (NIH) conducted a study that revealed that spinal manipulation is an effective treatment for adults with acute, subacute, and chronic low back or neck pain, migraine, headaches, dizziness, and various joint conditions.

There are days when you don’t understand why you have to deal with so much pain, even though you have already had back surgery, on medication, or have undergone an extensive series of physical therapy. What can you do?  There are three common types of treatment for chronic spinal pain; for short-term AND long-term relief. These include acupuncture, anti-inflammatory drugs, and chiropractic treatment.

Data was published following three unique studies in which patients were divided into the three different groups.  Only the patients who received chiropractic manipulation reached a level of statistically significant improvement, supporting that chiropractic treatment offered the best short-term (within 30 days) and long-term (after two years) benefits for those with chronic back or neck pain.

If you are suffering from pain and have lost, or are starting to lose, the ability to function normally, find a doctor of chiropractic who will help you achieve long-term chiropractic wellness! Following an intensive phase of chiropractic treatment in which the pain and disability levels decrease, it is important to follow up with regular chiropractic service.

Are you wondering how to relieve your lower back pain?  The better question might be, “What can I do to prevent my lower back pain?” Almost everyone has low back pain at some point in their life. The good news is that most lower back pain will go away in a few days or weeks with some basic self-care. But if your pain continues for longer than a few weeks, look for a doctor of chiropractic who can find the cause and provide low back pain treatment.

Some people are afraid that doing too much may make their back pain worse. Most doctors would agree that, in most cases, performing your normal activities is good for you as long as you avoid activities that would make your back pain worse.

As they grow, children experience many falls and mishaps which may seem rather insignificant at the time. As time passes however, these minor injuries can accumulate and become a significant health issue with a lifetime of damaging effects. Studies show that many children who experience symptoms of colic, ear infections and asthma have spinal subluxations impairing their nervous system function.

As a concerned parent, you have probably already started to research the effectiveness of chiropractic pediatric care. The nervous system is the master control system of growth, repair and the function of every tissue and organ in the body.  It serves to,interpret the messages coming from the environment and deciding which messages to send to the body so that it can adjust itself appropriately. Regular chiropractic care keeps this system in correct alignment so that your child’s body receives the correct signals for growing and functioning correctly.
