Tips For Healthy Living!

There are many different reasons people seek chiropractic treatment. Some use a chiropractor's skills for spinal manipulation or aligning vertebrae for preventive care. Others want help managing serious pain conditions, such as scoliosis or whiplash. The goal of a chiropractor is to help you return to your optimum state of health, in other words, achieve health wholeness.

This may involve a regular preventive maintenance program that might range from a visit each week--with an adjustment done only if you need it--to a visit once every month. The number of treatments required depends on the nature of the condition, how long it has been present and the desired result of the treatment.

If you’re waking up in the morning with neck pain, there is something you can do to improve your night’s sleep. Some causes—like the wear and tear of aging, arthritis, or even an injury like a slipped disk—may be out of your control. But there are some things you can control. Take a look at the four issues described below to see if you recognize anything that could be the cause of your neck pain.

Are you having trouble standing up straight and holding your head up high? If so, you may want to consider the DRS Protocol™ to help you correct the cause of your pain and discomfort.  You may be able to avoid surgery. The DRS Protocol™ is a non-invasive treatment to relieve back pain and other problems associated with spinal disc injuries. It provides gentle decompression of the disc through the use of a computer-controlled decompression table that applies a distraction force to the targeted area of the spine (the compressed disc) in minute increments. Over time, these small increments add up and allow the disc a chance to reshape itself, heal and receive the proper flow of nutrients to fight off brittleness and future injuries.

About 8 out of 10 Americans will experience debilitating back pain at some time in their lives. Most doctors agree that the most common culprit is the inter-vertebral discs, whether herniated, or whether just worn out, arthritic and painful. Amazingly, 90 percent of disc injuries will heal themselves after a few weeks. However, most patients want a quick fix. Waiting can be torture, and not everybody gets better. So that's when many doctors will recommend back surgery. More than 1.2 million Americans undergo spinal surgery each year, a large number of them spinal fusions where vertebrae are joined surgically with metal rods and screws, permanently, so they can’t move.

If you are tired of living in pain and want to avoid invasive back surgery, find a Doctor of Chiropractic that cares about their patients. Chiropractic care is a course of treatment that is designed specifically for you, the patient, depending on the nature of your condition, how long it has been present, and your ultimate goal of wellness. Do you want to just-get-by each day, or do you want to achieve complete wellness? Most patients will testify that chiropractic care is not just a pain-killer, but that it keeps the pain away by taking care of the root cause.

Just because your pain has been eased doesn’t mean the problem is gone. A common mistake is to ignore the problem once the pain is gone---and then only to find that the problem may return all too soon. Your Dr of Chiropractic may recommend further treatment to stabilize the vulnerable area and prevent reoccurrences of the problem.
