Are tension headaches putting a damper on your day?

Tension-type headaches affect two out of every three adults in the United States.

While these headaches are typically associated with stress and muscle tension, researchers have discovered that, more often than not, headaches are related to inflammation within the neck or upper spine.

As a result, many researchers have stated that non-invasive treatment options, like routine chiropractic care, that directly target the site of pain in the neck muscles could be highly effective and safer than systemic drugs.

Amidst the season of self-reflection, personal goal setting, and yearly resolutions, many find themselves wanting to work on their health and overall wellness.

One of the most common ways to do this is by revamping your current diet. When deciding how to introduce more nutritionally sound choices into your lifestyle, it’s important to remember that diets vary tremendously, and some are healthier than others.

When looking to change your diet, one of the main factors to consider is how nutritious your food choices are.

A balanced diet should include healthy sources of protein and fats, whole grains, and ample fruit and vegetable options.

Also remember that, although the nutrients that a diet provides are important for good health, whichever diet you follow should also be flexible and easy to follow. Flexibility helps ensure long-term success and inspires healthier living and overall well-being!

As you’re making your lists, and checking them twice, make sure to add routine chiropractic care!

Most people opt for chiropractic care in the summer when they are most active, but did you know that chiropractic care is equally as important during the colder season?

Even if we don’t get the frigid temperatures or snow and ice that are typically associated with winter months, the weather can still be harsh on our bodies!

Colder weather can negatively affect your muscles, joints, and overall mental health. You may find yourself feeling more stiff, struggling to maintain enough circulation for warmth, or feeling a little less than jolly. Thankfully, routine chiropractic adjustments can help to relieve or assist problems in these areas!

Did you know that chiropractic care can help lower the overall cost of care, shorten flare-ups, and reduce the frequency of flare-ups for those suffering from chronic lower back pain?

Recent studies have shown that when it came to the cost of care, patients who used a combination of chiropractic care and conventional medical care, paid significantly less per flare-up episode than those who did not receive any chiropractic care.

In addition, those who received chiropractic care had lower rates of back surgery in the year following treatment.

Do you find yourself suffering from chronic low back pain? Give us a call! We’re here to help you live a healthier, pain free life.

Getting to the Roots of Pain, Posture, and Chronic Health Issues | The American Chiropractor | JULY 2023 11/28/2023

We know that each patient who walks through our door is different, and because of that, so is their pain!

When working together to determine the best treatment options for your individualized goals, one of our first steps is to determine the type of pain you’re experiencing.

There are three types of pain that present themselves; nociceptive pain that occurs acutely following damage to body tissues; neuropathic pain that warns of injury to your nervous system; and bioplastic pain that involves pain sensations that are disproportionate to, or even completely independent of, physical harm.

With this in mind, each of our treatment plans is custom-made with your pain presentation, goals, and desires in mind. By utilizing a whole-person approach to better understand the root of your pain, chiropractors have the unique ability to lead the way in non-invasive postural rehabilitation and integrative health.

What To Look For When Choosing A Chiropractor 11/20/2023

When it comes to your health and well-being, choosing the right chiropractor is an important decision.

The benefits of chiropractic care range from providing relief from various musculoskeletal issues, to preventing and treating injuries, and more, but it’s important to note that not all chiropractors are created equal.

To ensure that you receive the safest and most effective treatment options for your personal health goals, it's important to consider several key factors when selecting a chiropractor.

A few things you should have on your checklist while choosing the perfect chiropractor is, determining if a chiropractor’s specializations are the best fit for you. Also when visiting, is open communication and collaboration encouraged when discussing your personal treatment plan? Asking and reviewing factors like these will not only help you pick the best chiropractor possible but will also help you get back to living a pain-free life faster!

Chiropractic Care: Keeping Your Body Warm and Well in Cooler Weather 10/25/2023

As we welcome the cooler, fall weather, it doesn’t mean that we need to also welcome the pesky aches and pains that often accompany it!

Thankfully, routine chiropractic care can help to prepare our bodies for colder weather and maintain our overall well-being.

Oftentimes, cooler weather can lead to stiff muscles and joints, making it more difficult to stay active. In response, chiropractic care can help to improve your flexibility, boost your immune system, and reduce stress and inflammation.

Chiropractic adjustments can also help to provide effective pain relief by addressing the root causes of discomfort so that you can continue to stay active and comfortable throughout the colder months.

Check out our blog post below for even more reasons why routine chiropractic care visits should be on your winter preparation checklist!

Did you know that those who smoke are at a higher risk of lower back pain?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 14% of Americans are current smokers.

In addition to lung or heart conditions, research shows that lower back pain is also a condition that is strongly associated with smoking.

This is because the more frequently that one smokes, the higher the chance of it interfering with the level of nutrients, such as cholesterol and vitamins, in the blood. This shift in composition can then affect the health of organs and can leave you suffering from a degenerating spine and radiating lower back pain.

Thankfully, routine chiropractic care and quitting smoking can help to combat the aches and pains associated with lower back pain!

After a long day of working, one of the best feelings is stretching, cracking, and decompressing your back.

Generally speaking, cracking your back by yourself is okay within reason, but if done too often, it could potentially lead to issues such as pinched nerves, injured joints, and strained muscles.

In order to be safe, it’s strongly recommended that you leave the back cracking to the professionals, like us, only!

Routine chiropractic visits and implementing proper posture and stretching into your daily routine can help combat the aches and pains that often lead to the need to crack your back.

Have you ever heard the phrase, 'Back to the basics'?

Chiropractic care is constantly advancing to provide the best natural, noninvasive pain relief possible, but occasionally, everyone should remember a few key concepts.

When thinking about chiropractic care, it's important to remember the acronym CHIRO:

C: Choice - When researching chiropractic care, ensure that you choose a chiropractor that you are comfortable with and specializes in your condition.
H: Holistic - Chiropractic care is only one component in the journey to living a healthier, pain-free life. In between visits, be sure to listen to the advice, tools, and knowledge of your chiropractor to help care for your whole body.
I: Intensity - Communicate your comfort level with your chiropractor. Together, you both can find an effective treatment option within your comfort zone.
R: Realistic - Be patient with the pain relief process and give detailed feedback to your chiropractor about your progress in between visits.
O: Ownership - When undergoing chiropractic care, be involved in the treatment options presented by asking questions and advocating for your individualized needs.

Time for another Myth vs. fact! 📣

Do you sometimes crack your back to relieve back pain?

The common belief is that cracking your back yourself can help realign your spine and alleviate back pain.

The truth is, cracking or readjusting your back should be left to the professionals.

The urge to crack your joints often comes from your joints or spine being out of alignment or having their movements restricted by tight muscles or prior injury.

Although the motion of cracking your back yourself can temporarily release that tension, in reality, if you crack or adjust your back incorrectly, it can cause additional long-term problems or even make existing ones worse.

Leave the back cracking to the professionals and visit us for a spinal adjustment. We’re here to help you get back to living a healthier, pain-free life! Call us today or visit our website to schedule an appointment.

Do you find yourself suffering from muscle tightness and sharp, shooting pain? You may be experiencing discomfort from trigger points.

Trigger points occur when muscles contract and tighten to form hard nodules. These nodules can block the blood supply to your muscles and nerves and in turn leave you dealing with irritation, stiffness, and pain.

Some of the most common symptoms of trigger points are:

- Pain (either local or radiating).
- A constant dull ache.
- Burning or numbness.
- Difficulty sleeping or chronic fatigue.

If you’re suffering from any of these symptoms, we’re here to help. Contact us today to schedule an appointment so that you can get back to living a healthier, pain-free life!
