Treating Stress Through Alternative Means (and a Chiropractor!)

Posted on: November 24th, 2014 by owner No Comments

Treating Stress Through Alternative MeansAs we grow older we seem to lose our child within, which is actually a bad thing when you look at it in the proper light. Toddlers are said to be the giggly type, as the average number of times a toddler laughs per day is 400! That’s astounding when you compare it alongside the average number of time an adult laughs per day, which is a measly 15. When we get older it seems like we have way too many problems to deal with, when we’re young we always believe that the world is about peace and love. Little did we know that we would be working to make a living, as well as dealing with the problems that people deal with every single day (that is if they aren’t children). Stress can really play a big part in how happy you’ll be living your life, and whenever there’s a chance to relieve yourself of said ailment you should be taking.

Stress can mean a lot to some people, it can make you feel terrible physically and it can just drain you emotionally as well. Stress is one thing that just about every single human has to deal with, there are going to be certain situations in your life that you aren’t going to be completely happy with. The right chiropractor actually has the ability to completely relieve of any stress that you’re feeling, that is if it’s within reason of course. Sometimes stress being built up in your body can be due to tense muscles and things like that, which is why a chiropractor can help you so much. Stress itself is actually a chemical, and according to the balance of your body (when it comes to your spine and such) some people are going to produce more than others.

This stress can result in many different things, but usually results in aches and pains regarding your shoulder, neck, back or any other portion of your body that is typically at risk when it comes to aching pains. The right chiropractor is going to make a large difference when it comes to dealing with your stress levels, so try it out for yourself and see what kind of results you’ll come out with. Tons of others are doing, so it must mean that it’s working in one way or another.

Leg Pains Related To the Back May Be Treatable Through Chiropractic Care

Posted on: October 27th, 2014 by owner No Comments

Leg Pains Related To the Back May Be Treatable Through Chiropractic CareYour chiropractor usually knows what’s best for you, it’s their job to do exactly that and if it means figuring out what’s wrong with your joints (as well as what’s inducing pain) than so be it. We’ve all had an ache or two in our bodies at some point throughout our long lives, it’s something that’s quite common and people just get used to it over time. One thing you shouldn’t have to deal with is leg pain, and sometimes the leg pain can be so intense that patients actually can’t walk without some sort of walking aid at their disposal. Chiropractors are always looking to help their patients in every single way that they can, which is probably why those whom are suffering from leg pain (related to their backs) are visiting their respective physician. Spinal adjustment throughout is looked at as being something that’s new and quite strange, but it’s what needs to happen when you’re looking to treat your leg pains accordingly.

Chiropractors are always going to look towards doing something positive for their patient, they never have any negative intentions and that’s exactly the way it should be. Spinal adjustment throughout might sound strange and scary at first, but it’s truly something that’s innovative and it’s been helping tons of different people with their leg pains. The reason we know this works is because there were actually trials being held that state exactly that, one group of patients was given the spinal adjustment throughout treatment while others weren’t.

The patients were also instructed to keep doing a series of exercises at their homes, because these were to be used in order to promote the healthiness of the tissue. It’s all about being healthy, and when you’ve got a sharp pain in your legs that you can’t quite put your finger on you should visit your chiropractor. Most of the people who received the spinal adjustment throughout (37% of the patients) stated that a year late after the treatment their pain was gone, which is a pretty hefty number to take into account. The more people we can cure the better, but you’ve got to start somewhere and 37% seems like we’re on the right track to me. There’s only so much pain medications and things like that can do for your aches, it’s time to tackle that pain for good.

Fixing Your Pain Without Using Drugs

Posted on: September 23rd, 2014 by owner No Comments

Fixing Your Pain Without Using DrugsPain relief is something that we all struggle with, when there are nagging aches and pains in our body it’s just like your arms and legs can’t co-operate with your brain! Severe back pain has the ability to cripple people in the most severe cases, but even if you aren’t at risk as a severely affect patient there are still signs to look out for. Back pain and any other joint or muscle pain you have to deal with is more than likely going to be combated by the use of pills and medicine, doctors have a protocol they need to uphold and referring you to some sort of naturalistic healer would just be silly in their eyes. For every ailment there’s going to multiple ways to go about removing them from your life, and pain (no matter where it happens to be sitting) is one of these ailments.

Seeing a chiropractor might lift the burden that you’ve been carrying for quite some time off of your shoulders, because believe it or not a lot of problems related to joint and muscle pain can be conquered through the use of a great chiropractor (that kind of sounds like we’re referring to chiropractors as objects, but I can assure you that they’re people just like you and I). Dr. Polley has developed a technique that would allow professional athletes to manage their pain more efficiently. Not only would basketball players and soccer stars be able to make use of the treatment, but even the NASCAR drivers would see a benefit from working with the treatment as well.

Dr. Chad Polley is one of the more successful names you’ll come across when looking into working with the right doctor for pain management, and he actually has plenty of experience dealing with sportsmen who have to deal with pain. It’s all about balance when you’re trying to manage your pain, but obviously there will be methods out there that seem to work much better than others. Once you’ve found the perfect method for yourself, stick with it. The last thing you want to do is deal with that pain again, so if Dr. Polley suggest a trip to the chiropractor is really going to have an impact, so be it.

Motherly Love: Advice from a Chiropractor

Posted on: September 8th, 2014 by owner No Comments

Motherly Love: Advice from a ChiropractorBeing a mother is pretty stressful, and that’s without working in the various factors that can present themselves when you’re pregnant (whether it be a new pregnancy or one that’s getting ready to pop at any second!). You need to take care of your back, and that’s not because you’re a mother-to-be, that’s something that would be recommended to just about anybody on earth. Seeing as everybody should be worrying about their back health it only makes sense for pregnant women and expecting mothers to be just as worried as the next person, if not slightly more so. The weight gain that can associated itself with having a child is real, we all know it and I’m sure that you’re well aware of it from personal experience. The weight is going to attribute to a few problems that can associated themselves with your back, so all of the stress placed on your body (with the extra weight and the fact that you’re carrying a baby) may put you in a position that isn’t that comfortable.

Feeling uncomfortable and generally anxious as a pregnant woman is never something you want, you’re already going to be emotional and being uncomfortable at all times is just going to add to this feat. During the later portion of a pregnancy the lower back pain you’re feeling might be unbearable, because as the child is getting prepared inside and the head starts to press on certain portions (like the back, legs or even her buttons if applicable). When this happens it can affect how you feel about your lower back, and if you started off with lower back pain it’s going to be even worse. A visit to the chiropractor might help you identify the problems, but it’s going to take a bit of time and work if you’re going to “get rid of the kinks” (so to speak).

Your center of gravity has a lot to do with your backs health, and pregnant women have the tendency to sport a center of gravity that’s a bit forward (due to the baby weight and other things associated with getting pregnant and being with child). The sacrum, which is the outer portion of the pelvic area, is able to carry the baby but not necessarily the weight. The weight still makes things difficult on your joints, so take precautions and listen to what the chiropractor has to say.

Did You Know: Chiropractors

Posted on: September 2nd, 2014 by owner No Comments

Did You Know: ChiropractorsBack problems aren’t always going to be apparent, sometimes they can be subtle and low-key until they decide to really spring into action. Chiropractors have more than one use, they aren’t just somebody you should visit when your back isn’t feeling up to standards. They are here to help you in many more ways than simply your back, there are tons of different problems that a chiropractor can help you with (believe it or not). We are lead to believe that they can only handle problems related to backs or bones in general, but there are other things (like digestive discomfort) that they can aid you with. Allergies or asthma have been known to be treatable with certain chiropractic processes as well, so keep an open mind when you’re trying to look for a solution to your problems. If you feel like there’s something wrong with you and your doctor can’t seem to figure it out you might want to give your chiropractor a try, and if you don’t have a personal physician (chiropractic-wise) than it’s probably time to find one!

Don’t be fooled or misinformed when you’re talking about these services, they are actually meant to work with your nervous system in order to restore balance to your body. Balance is actually very important in life, not only with your physical traits but with the other variables pertaining to your health as well. The symptoms in your body can be hard to pin-point sometimes, there are many different ailments out there that carry the same side-effects, and in the end you might just need a little bit of balancing from your local chiropractor.

Some ailments that could be considered more serious have been called treatable through these treatments as well, the perfect example would be something like Scoliosis. If something that powerful and effective against the immune system can be treated through the use of balancing methods you should be sold already. I can’t think of any other physician or helper of health that could accomplish that without medicine, so clearly chiropractors know something that we don’t!

Back problems or not you should check your surrounding areas for a chiropractic centre near you, you never know what they’re going to have to offer and how much of an impact it will have on your life. Make a change today and do something you can be proud of for years to come, you won’t regret it.

The Importance of Injury Prevention in Golf

Posted on: August 11th, 2014 by owner No Comments

The Importance of Injury Prevention in GolfGolf is a sport that doesn’t require the amount of athleticism usually needed when you’re dealing with a sporting event, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get injured by taking part. Golf is a sport that is based off of momentum and velocity, but people are still going to throw their backs out trying to hit the golf ball as hard as they possibly can. It’s all about technique for the most part, and the quicker you learn that, the quicker you’re going to prevent injuries. The number of golfers in the United States is astounding, it’s definitely one of the more popular games with around 30 million different people taking part every single year. Although that’s good for the game of golf, it can be troublesome if you’re a chiropractor. We know that golf is an “old man’s game”, and we also know that the older you get the weaker your bones and ligaments as a whole tend to become. Back problems can arise when you’ve been playing golf for too long, or simply just don’t have the right swinging mechanics set in place.

The way you actually conduct your swing can determine whether you’re putting yourself at risk or not, if you aren’t swinging properly and with the right technique you’re going to injure yourself eventually. Make sure your body is balanced throughout the entire swing, and don’t try to put too much power into it (that’s probably going to lead to you cutting the drive anyways). Poor posture will also play a part in your potential golf injuries, as well as not being that flexible. The action of the swing is short and quick, so flexibility and technique needs to be perfected in order to prevent injury.

Injuring yourself during a game like golf can mean bad news for the future, because back injuries have the potential to linger for a long period of time (or even the rest of your life). A chiropractor is only going to be able to help so much, so help yourself by trying to avoid these injuries in the first place. We’re all competitive, but being so competitive to the point where you’re injuring yourself in a game like golf is just silly. It’s supposed to be a quaint game you play with your friends on the weekend, not a deadlifting contest to see who can tweak their back more.

The Cold Truth about Processed Foods

Posted on: July 29th, 2014 by owner No Comments

The Cold Truth about Processed Foods - fast food Processed foods are hard to avoid these days, it seems as if ever single corner you turn you’re faced with another McDonalds or a Taco Bell. Another thing that adds an extra layer of fat to the beefy industry known as “fast food” is the fact that the food tastes so good, and if there’s one thing we can enjoy as human beings its great tasting food. It can be really difficult to say no sometimes, but the truth really does hurt in this specific situation. Most people don’t realize this, but all of the processed foods that we’re exposed to today can actually be incredibly bad for us. It’s apparent that the food isn’t particularly good for our health in any way, but most people overlook the harsh consequences that can actually follow the consumption processed foods (in large portions of course).

We’re not only going to expose you to the dark truth about processed foods here today, but we’re also going to do it without any regrets. Nobody should be living the life of a processed food junkie, and we definitely don’t like seeing people waste their lives away by eating at McDonalds every single day (that’s just not healthy leaving).

You aren’t going to drop dead from consuming processes foods, but some of the diseases the foods attribute to might beg to differ. Not only do these foods increase the risk of heart disease, they also increase the risk of contracting diabetes (both of which are ailments you shouldn’t want to suffer from obviously). As if that wasn’t enough they have the ability to increase the amount of cravings you have, which results in a “vicious circle” sort of process to take place. The risk of contracting cancer is actually heightened with the consumption of processed foods as well, and we all know that the big “C word” isn’t going to slow down for anybody, these foods also have the potential to cause some chiropractic issues.

Weight gain is another cold hard fact that’s associated with eating processed foods on a consistent basis, as well as a rise in blood pressure and other blood-related disorders. Blood pressure is a key detriment to determining the health of somebody, so make healthy leaving a key component of your regime. Weight gain would be one of the major concerns (as opposed to the risk of heart disease and diabetes) because obesity is a problem in many places on earth, and processed foods are at the frontline of it all.
