Talking Health with Today's Chiropractors

What is this pain in my back?

Tuesday, January 17, 2017




Education is key, so this week we will be talking about Disc Bulge and Herniation. Bulging or herniated discs can appear in the Neck, Low Back, Middle & Upper Back. Located between the vertebrae of your spine are 23 discs, which act as a spacer and shock absorber. These discs have soft, gel-like centers surrounded by layers of fibrous tissues. Sometimes, due to an injury or just aging, the material in the middle of the disc pushes to one side or even ruptures. This is called a bulging or herniated disc and you might be familiar with the discomfort that is associated with it.

Looking for help?


The following strategies may help you reduce your chance of having a herniated disk:

1.  Chiropractic Adjustments.

2.  Practice good posture: standing and sitting straight, keeping your back straight when lifting.

3.  Maintain a healthy weight.

4.  Exercise regularly.

5.  Ask your chiropractor about exercises to strengthen your back and stomach.

6.  Steer away from wear high-heeled shoes.

7.  If you sit, get out of your chair every 20 to 25 minutes and walk for several minutes.

 

What is Chiropractic?

 

Chiropractic care works on correcting misaligned or out-of-place vertebrae and can remove the pressure placed on the nerve endings that line the surface of the joint and course through the space between the joints, reducing pain and improving flexibility and function.

Can chiropractic help a compromised immune system?

Monday, January 09, 2017



Fighting off infections during this time of the year is hard when you have a compromised immune system. When you have an immunodeficiency the body has a difficult time fighting infections and as a result you are more prone to getting frequent infections that typically last longer. 

 

Chiropractic can help suppress the immune system:

 

New research shows that white blood cells increase with chiropractic adjustments. A smaller study showed that the immune response of HIV-positive patients increased as measured by their CD4 count with chiropractic adjustments. So the next time you want to cancel your appointment because you’re too sick, remember a chiropractic adjustment is just what the doctor ordered.

 

 

SYMPTOMS:
• Fever
• Muscle aches and pains
• Swollen lymph nodes
• Nausea
• Upset stomach or diarrhea
• Nasal drainage
• Headache

DCs are especially well known for their expertise in caring for patients with back pain, neck pain and headaches...particularly with their highly skilled manipulations or chiropractic adjustments. Stillwater chiropractors also care for patients with a wide range of injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system, involving the muscles, ligaments and joints.
