Chiropractic Wellness Tips

What is the best treatment for low back pain?

Most cases of back pain are mechanical caused by spinal subluxations which are when the vertebrae have been shifted to an improper location causing pain and inflammation.

Chiropractic is mechanical…it’s physical…it’s done by hand to correct spinal subluxations of the spine. If you have a thorn in your toe…that’s physical. The solution is not chemical. Sure, you can take a drug so you don’t feel the thorn…but to fix the problem you need to remove the thorn.

You also want to look at your lifestyle choices. If you are eating the typical American diet and are carrying too much weight, you could have chronic inflammation. This can lead to spinal subluxations that keep re-occurring.

Many back pain patients are also out of shape and de-conditioned.

Making regular exercise a part of your life can help with acute and chronic low back pain. Your Chiropractor can help put together an exercise plan for you.

Also a good Chiropractor will ask the questions that are needed to find the other causes of your back or neck pain. For example: Are you sitting on a big wallet? Or do carry a big purse? How do you sleep? What is your chair or seat in your work and car like? Is there lumbar support? Chiropractors have to be like a detective. Find the cause and the cure will be easier.

Top 7 injuries requiring chiropractic work

Let’s face it, accidents and injuries can happy anytime. Here are the top injuries requiring chiropractic work to help you get back to your normal lifestyle. Avoiding fixing these injuries may lead in longer recovery time.

  1. Auto injuries
  2. Work injuries
  3. Sports injuries
  4. Slips and falls
  5. Repetitive stress injuries
  6. Sprains and strains
  7. Headaches

Call Dr. Rosenberg today if you’ve experienced any of these injuries recently.

Common causes of headaches and what you can do about them.

There are many causes of headaches. Some are serious but others are common. The most common headache is caused by spinal misalignments in the upper cervical spine that impinges nerves. The body’s response to impinged nerves is to tighten the muscles around the vertebra to protect the nerve. This combination restricts blood flow and causes headaches. Poor posture, whiplash or any other injury can tighten the muscles and pull a vertebra out of place also causing a headache.

High blood pressure can cause headaches. This also can be associated with stress which causes both. Also low blood sugar and dehydration can give you headaches.

There are headaches that are caused when the body is toxic. We all know about hangovers but many medications also give headaches as a side effect.

The bottom line is that when you have a headache, the body is telling us that there is something wrong. If it wasn’t self inflicted from a big night out, you should have it looked at by a Chiropractor. We will find the cause of your head pain.

First things you should consider when getting in an accident

  1. If you have a serious accident you might have to go to the Emergency room to make sure there is not any a life threatening injury or fracture of any bones.
  2. If the injury doesn’t require hospitalization, the best thing to first do is to ice the injury. 15-20 minutes each hour up to five hours a day for two days. This will help to keep the swelling down and shorten your recovery.
  3. Rest: go easy at first. Listen to your body. If it hurts you probably should slow down a bit.
  4. See a good Chiropractor. You want your injury to heal correctly. Nobody ever had back pain until they hurt themselves. A good Chiropractor will see that your injury will have the proper care so your pain won’t be a problem in your future.
  5. Remember the five most dangerous words ever spoken: Maybe it will go away! Ignoring a problem is the worst thing anyone can do. Many good people are suffering or dead because they never saw a doctor when they should of.
