Chiropractic and Neck Pain: Conservative Care of Cervical Pain, Injury

 

Your neck, also called the cervical spine, begins at the base of the skull and contains seven small vertebrae. Incredibly, the cervical spine supports the full weight of your head, which is on average about 12 pounds. While the cervical spine can move your head in nearly every direction, this flexibility makes the neck very susceptible to pain and injury.

The neck’s susceptibility to injury is due in part to biomechanics. Activities and events that affect cervical biomechanics include extended sitting, repetitive movement, accidents, falls and blows to the body or head, normal aging, and everyday wear and tear. Neck pain can be very bothersome, and it can have a variety of causes.

Here are some of the most typical causes of neck pain:

Injury and Accidents: A sudden forced movement of the head or neck in any direction and the resulting “rebound” in the opposite direction is known as whiplash. The sudden “whipping” motion injures the surrounding and supporting tissues of the neck and head. Muscles react by tightening and contracting, creating muscle fatigue, which can result in pain and stiffness. Severe whiplash can also be associated with injury to the intervertebral joints, discs, ligaments, muscles, and nerve roots. Car accidents are the most common cause of whiplash.

Growing Older: Degenerative disorders such as osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease directly affect the spine. Osteoarthritis, a common joint disorder, causes progressive deterioration of cartilage. The body reacts by forming bone spurs that affect joint motion. Spinal stenosis causes the small nerve passageways in the vertebrae to narrow, compressing and trapping nerve roots. Stenosis may cause neck, shoulder, and arm pain, as well as numbness, when these nerves are unable to function normally. Degenerative disc disease can cause reduction in the elasticity and height of intervertebral discs. Over time, a disc may bulge or herniate, causing tingling, numbness, and pain that runs into the arm. Daily Life: Poor posture, obesity, and weak abdominal muscles often disrupt spinal balance, causing the neck to bend forward to compensate. Stress and emotional tension can cause muscles to tighten and contract, resulting in pain and stiffness. Postural stress can contribute to chronic neck pain with symptoms extending into the upper back and the arms.

Chiropractic Care of Neck Pain

During your visit, your doctor of chiropractic will perform exams to locate the source of your pain and will ask you questions about your current symptoms and remedies you may have already tried. For example:

When did the pain start?
What have you done for your neck pain?
Does the pain radiate or travel to other parts of your body?
Does anything reduce the pain or make it worse?

Your doctor of chiropractic will also do physical and neurological exams. In the physical exam, your doctor will observe your posture, range of motion, and physical condition, noting movement that causes pain. Your doctor will feel your spine, note its curvature and alignment, and feel for muscle spasm. A check of your shoulder area is also in order. During the neurological exam, your doctor will test your reflexes, muscle strength, other nerve changes, and pain spread.

In some instances, your chiropractor might order tests to help diagnose your condition. An x-ray can show narrowed disc space, fractures, bone spurs, or arthritis. A computerized axial tomography scan (a CT or CAT scan) or a magnetic resonance imaging test (an MRI) can show bulging discs and herniations. If nerve damage is suspected, your doctor may order a special test called electromyography (an EMG) to measure how quickly your nerves respond.

Chiropractors are conservative care doctors; their scope of practice does not include the use of drugs or surgery. If your chiropractor diagnoses a condition outside of this conservative scope, such as a neck fracture or an indication of an organic disease, he or she will refer you to the appropriate medical physician or specialist. He or she may also ask for permission to inform your family physician of the care you are receiving to ensure that your chiropractic care and medical care are properly coordinated.

Neck Adjustments

A neck adjustment (also known as a cervical manipulation) is a precise procedure applied to the joints of the neck, usually by hand. A neck adjustment works to improve the mobility of the spine and to restore range of motion; it can also increase movement of the adjoining muscles. Patients typically notice an improved ability to turn and tilt the head, and a reduction of pain, soreness, and stiffness.

Of course, your chiropractor will develop a program of care that may combine more than one type of treatment, depending on your personal needs. In addition to manipulation, the treatment plan may include mobilization, massage or rehabilitative exercises, or something else.

Research Supporting Chiropractic Care

One of the most recent reviews of scientific literature found evidence that patients with chronic neck pain enrolled in clinical trials reported significant improvement following chiropractic spinal manipulation.

As part of the literature review, published in the March/April 2007 issue of the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, the researchers reviewed nine previously published trials and found “high-quality evidence” that patients with chronic neck pain showed significant pain-level improvements following spinal manipulation. No trial group was reported as having remained unchanged, and all groups showed positive changes up to 12 weeks post-treatment.

Your #1 Place For Auto Injuries

Dollarphotoclub 84476194222

 

One of the most important things to consider when you have been injured is the experience of the doctor treating injuries such as auto, sports, worker's comp., school bus accidents, and slip and falls. Many facilities are not equipped to handle treatment and rehabilitation following an accident. Many facilities only treat family patients. At Advanced Healthcare Center, we have a state of the art office where our medical staff can handle the initial pain from injury and our physical therapy department can follow through with strengthening and conditioning. Our other services can help speed up your recovery even faster. We want you to return to the pre-injury status you once had before this accident and enjoy a fuller life.

Perhaps the biggest problem surrounding whiplash injuries is a fundamental lack of understanding. Lay people intuitively assume that there should be a close correlation between the actual property damage to the vehicle and the physical damage to the occupant. Study after study has shown that there is really no correlation here. Studies have shown that speeds as slow as 8 mph causes significant musculoskeletal injuries. Even in relatively slow whiplash injuries, severe trauma can occur to the bony and soft tissue of the cervical spine:

Our doctors are trained at finding any areas that may have been torn or inflamed following an accident. Very often through examination, other areas are found that were injured and need treatment. If you have had an accident, you need the skills of an experienced provider to determine if you may have acute or permanent injury. These injuries can last for months and even years. If you have problems such as stiffness, soreness, mild, moderate or severe pain.......it is time to be checked out.

It is important to let the doctors at Advanced Healthcare Center document any unfortunate injury you have received. Here we focus on diagnosis and treatment of those involved in accidents, whether from a car wreck, slip and fall, school or city bus accident and any sports related accidents.

If your accident has not had strong documentation, then you could limit or hinder the proper care you might need for your injuries or the compensation for suffering.

At Advanced Healthcare, we specialize in the treatment of personal injury and motor vehicle accidents. Our number one goal is to help you get better.

Call us today to find out how we can help you!

Is Your Average Day Enhancing Your Life

Few things in life are constant. Small, constant changes are happening all of the time. This is true even while driving in a seemingly straight line down the highway. You’re constantly making course corrections to avoid crossing over the lines in your car.

 

The quality of your life is no different. Small corrections, applied consistently, can take your life in a vastly different direction. Are you choosing the direction of your life? Or are you living your life by default and simply taking whatever life throws your way?

 

•If you lived yesterday over and over for the next 10 years, where would you land?

• If you ate the same way for the next 10 years, what would your boindy look like? Would your health be better or worse?

• Did you exercise yesterday? Where will you be in 10 years if you don’t change?

• Your social activities? Should you expect positive or negative cFew things in life are constant. Small, constant changes are happening all of the time. This is true even while driving in a seemhanges in your social life?

•What about your performance at work? • Are you taking steps each day toward reaching your goals?

What is the logical conclusion of living your average day repeatedly? Does that outcome appeal to you? Or are you filled with a sense of dread? If you’re stuck, your average day is holding you back.

 

The things you do, or fail to do, each day determine your destiny. It’s logical to believe that big changes in your behavior will lead to big changes in your life. However, how many people do you know that have successfully made and maintained a significant change?

 

Losing weight is simple, but not many people are able to lose weight reliably. Making 400 cold calls per day will make you rich, but how many people have the stomach to do it? Small changes in behavior can lead to huge changes in your results. Patience is the key .

 

Consider what you could accomplish by creating a productive day and sticking with it.

 

Design a productive day and create your future:

 

1. Find a diet that you can follow long term. Eating nutritious foods will help your body to reach a healthy weight. It isn’t necessary to follow a crazy diet to reach your weight goals. People with spectacular bodies have an effective diet and are patient.

• Are you impatient? How much have your body and health changed in the last couple of years?

2. Exercise. A little bit of exercise can go a long way if performed religiously. There’s no reason to train as if you’re fighting in the next Rocky installment. Gently pushing yourself a tiny bit more each week is more than enough.

3. Communicate with those that matter. Relationships crumble a little at time. Talk to the important people each day and have a meaningful chat. Even a short text message can be better than nothing.

4. Develop habits that will enhance your employment. Make a list of the things you could do each day at work to ensure your success long-term. It might involve speaking each day with the employees that report to you. Maybe you need to ensure your work is done on time consistently.

5. Remember your goals. If you’ve always wanted to learn to speak French, set aside 15 minutes each day and get started.

 

Address all aspects of your life. Create a day that will ensure a positive, happy, and rewarding future if you repeat it over the long haul. What could be simpler? If your life is less-than satisfying, and you’re not seeing progress, take a look at your average day. Create a day that guarantees success.

ACA Presses Federal Government to Encourage Conservative Pain Management

The American Chiropractic Association (ACA), in recent comments submitted to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) Office of Pain Policy on the draft National Pain Strategy, strongly urges the agency to include recommendations encouraging patients and health care providers to first exhaust conservative forms of pain management, when appropriate.

"Doctors of chiropractic practice a hands on, drug free approach to health care that has been shown to alleviate neuromusculoskeletal complaints. When other medical conditions exist, chiropractic care may compliment or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition," writes ACA Acting Executive Vice President Richard Miller as part of ACA's formal comments.

ACA specifically urges the federal government to change outdated, statutory language in Medicare to allow chiropractic phsicians to practice and be reimbursed for the fullest extent of their licensure, training and competencies; appoint doctors of chiropractic as officers in the commissioned Regular Corps and the Ready Reserve Corps of the Public Health Service; make clear the intention of Section 2706(a) of the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to allow patients to see providers of their choice when seeking treatment for pain and other musculoskeletal conditions; expand access to chiropractic services in the nation's military and Department of Veterans Affairs health care systems; and expand access to chiropractic services in all other federal health programs, including research programs related to pain manaagement.

The comments submitted by ACA are part of the profession's ongoing efforts to educate the public about the value of exhausting non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical treatments for pain management and health enhancement before moving on to riskier options. ACA's annual observance National Chiropractic Health Month this October will promote the conservative approach to care with the theme #PainFreeNation.

A conservative model of care encourages, when appropriate, the use of more cost effective and safer approaches over potentially addictive medications, surgery and other invasive procedures for pain management. For example, conservative management fo painful conditions may include spinal manipulation combined with exercise and stretching prior to moving on to treatments involving higher risk, such as opioids.

The comments received by NINDS from ACA and other groups will be used to create a comprehensiive population health level strategy for pain prevention, treatment, management, and research. The American Chiropractic Association based in Arlington, VA., is the largest professional association in the United States representing doctors of chiropractic. ACA promotes the highest standards of ethics and patient care, contributing to the health and well-being of millions of chiropractic patients. Visit them at www.acatoday.org.

Are You Dealing With Discomfort In A Skillful Manner

Physical and emotional discomfort are a part of life. Most scientists believe that feelings of discomfort are attempts by our brain to keep us safe. There’s a reason you’re afraid to jump off a cliff. If you step on something sharp, you’re sure to pick up your foot and rectify the situation.

However, there are times that your brain leads you astray. You can feel fear about a certain course of action, even if that action is the best option. It’s also possible to react to legitimate causes of discomfort poorly..

Your brain works very hard to limit the amount of change in your life. That’s why change can be so hard. In a similar fashion, your brain will try to prevent you from taking any action that might cause embarrassment or other form of anxiety..

Are you going to let your brain control you, or are you going to control your brain?.

Deal with discomfort skillfully:

1. Ask yourself if the discomfort is legitimate. Protecting your life and your source of income are examples of legitimate concerns. The fear felt before a public speaking engagement isn’t. What do you really have to risk?

• Discomfort can be very limiting if you let it. Asking a beautiful woman out on a date only has an upside..

2. Avoid dealing with discomfort poorly. Suppose you’re stressed about work. It would be reasonable to resolve the situation. If it can’t be resolved, there’s no point in worrying about it. But avoiding worry is easier said than done. What are some common coping mechanisms?.

• The use of alcohol and other drugs is an example of a harmful coping mechanism. You may feel better in the short-term, but you’re also risking your health and possibly imprisonment.
• Over-eating is another common coping mechanism. Your health is at risk, but at least you’ll stay out of jail. This is less than optimal.
• Reading, watching TV, surfing the internet, or engaging in another “harmless” activity are also common options. These are merely distractions with little benefit. You’re not hurting yourself, but you’re not helping either.
• Exercising is at least a healthy choice when kept within reasonable parameters.
• Meditating and problem solving can actually provide insight into the challenge. You’re taking action and exerting a level of control. This can be comforting. .

3. Be mindful. Mindfulness largely consists of being aware of your current activities and your environment. If you’re paying bills, you mind is only aware of that activity. Paying your bills and worrying about work isn’t being mindful..Training your mind to stay grounded in reality is challenging, but very rewarding. You can greatly eliminate worry. .

4. Learn to be comfortable with discomfort. You can get used to anything. Some of us are easily swayed by discomfort and cave very quickly. Start small. Learn to accept smaller discomforts and allow them to pass. In time, you’ll be able to handle higher levels of discomfort..

5. Realize that discomfort is a feeling in your body that you created. All the fear and anxiety you feel are nothing more than a few chemicals coursing through your veins. Those chemicals can be effective, but you don’t have to give in to them. Resolve to continue forging ahead..

Your ability to evaluate and manage your discomfort effectively is a prime determiner of success. Many people are successful only because of their ability to do things others are too uncomfortable to do. What would you accomplish if you never felt uncomfortable? .

Cycle of Health - How Chiropractic Works

For 24 centuries most of the world has depended on the doctor of medicine to cure health problems, yet the world is still sick and getting sicker.

But more than forty million Americans have switched their thinking about doctors and each year millions are switching. They are switching to Chiropractic.

Medicine became "scientific" with the appearance of bacteriology. Since then, the education of the medical man has centered around the germ theory of dis-ease and has focused almost exclusively on germs causing dis-eases.

Although progress has been made in the fight against germs, medical science is beginning to realize that it is actually the degree of natural immunity, natural body defense, and vitality which determines the success or failure of any treatment.

Because the medical profession has been preoccupied with germs, viruses and infections, the vast majority of conditions, ills and dis-eases that trouble mankind, have been ignored.

15,000,000 Americans suffer from chronic headaches, another 28,000,000 have arthritis. Heart disease is still the no. 1 killer. Chronic fatigue, high blood pressure, stomach ulcers and nervous disorders still must be dealt with. Hay fever, asthma, and sinuses make hundreds of thousands miserable and sciatica plagues millions. Chronic backaches increase every day.

Orthodox medicine has failed to meet these challenges, while a new kind of doctor has emerged - the Doctor of Chiropractic - the second largest healing profession in the world.

Chiropractic gets sick people well and prevents the healthy from getting sick.

None of the body functions "just happen." Your heart doesn't just happen to beat. Your lungs don't just happen to inhale and exhale. Your stomach does not just happen to digest your dinner. All doctors know that your brain and nerve system coordinate these functions which make life instead of death, health instead of sickness.

It is your brain and nerve system which causes your heart to beat 72 times per minute, 60 minutes every hour, 103,680 times every 24 hours and pump 4,320 gallons of blood through nearly 100,000 miles of blood vessels, thus supplying oxygen and nourishment to every cell in the body, some 50 - 75 trillion of them.

Because your brain and nerve system direct it, today you will breathe 23,040 times, digest about 3 1/4 pounds of food, drink and process about three quarts of liquid, speak about 4,800 words, move over 600 muscles and exercise millions of brain cells.

None of these things "just happen." The nerve system - often called the Master System - controls every function either directly or indirectly in your body. This makes you a whole human being rather that a collection of parts. AMAZING NERVOUS SYSTEM

The nerve system resembles an upside-down tree. The main trunk is suspended from the brain and the tiniest twigs end in the cells of the body.

Distribution of nerves throughout the body is so intimate and extensive that if we could dissolve away all other tissues, we would still see the form and proportions of the body, made up entirely of nerves.

When the impulses flow smoothly and unimpeded as nature intends, a person enjoys health and a feeling of well-being. But when there is interference in normal nerve function, there will be imbalance either physical, chemical, or emotional.

The spinal column is intended to protect the spinal cord and the nerves leading from it. Should there be any loss of structural integrity, curvature, motion, restrictions and distortions of the spine, this could result in imbalance called subluxation. This imbalance causes interference with normal nerve function.

SUBLUXATIONS - HEALTH'S HIDDEN ENEMY

In order to enjoy sound health, the individual must maintain structural balance of the spinal column. Any imbalance in structure or function will result in lowered immunity to dis-ease.

It is stresses and strains, knocks and bumps of living that sometimes creates this imbalance. Just look around you - heads forward, slumped shoulders, hollow backs, protuberant bellies, rotated hips.

You can be sure these people suffer from attendant health problems - back, heart, stomach, liver, headaches, sinus trouble, sciatica, and ear infections are only a few. They may suffer from any of the nearly 400 different diseases or conditions caused by structural or functional imbalances.

Misaligned vertebrae which create interference are called subluxations. A fall or injury may produce subluxations. They may result from stresses or strains either physically, chemically or emotionally which may overload the nervous system's protective mechanism and produce subluxations.

HOW NERVES BECOME PINCHED

An adult spine is composed of 24 moveable bones called vertebrae. Each vertebrae has the general shape of a person's ring. The rings are stacked one on top of another forming a vertical tunnel.

The delicate spinal cord - just thicker than a pencil - is suspended from the brain and extends down through the tunnel formed by the ring-like vertebrae. Smaller nerves lead from the spinal cord through openings between the vertebrae. These openings are called foramen. The nerves emerge in pairs, one to the right and one to the left. There are 31 pairs of spinal nerves. Each nerve controls a specific area of the body. When the spinal column is in proper alignment, the nerves pass unimpeded through the foramen. But when one or more vertebra become misaligned, the nerve creates inflammation and irritation which alters normal nerve function to that area of the body served by that nerve.

Sometimes misaligned vertebrae correct themselves. But most subluxations need outside assistance for correction. That assistance is chiropractic care. THE CHIROPRACTIC STORY

The principle of chiropractic was discovered September 18, 1895 by Dr. Daniel Palmer in Davenport, Iowa. On that day, Palmer was in his office carrying on a shouted conversation with the deaf janitor of the building, Harvey Lillard.

Lillard was explaining in shouts to Palmer that about 17 years earlier while working in a cramped, stooped position, something had "popped" in his back. Since that time, his hearing had become progressively worse.

Dr. Palmer, a curious, intelligent man, examined Lillard's back and found a painful, misaligned vertebrae at the spot where something had "popped" 17 years earlier. He suspected a connection between the misaligned vertebra and Lillard's impaired hearing....and reasoned that if something had gone wrong in his back and caused deafness, the correction of the misaligned vertebrae should bring back Lillard's hearing.

Using his hands, Palmer repositioned the vertebra with a gentle thrust. Lillard's hearing improved immediately. In that moment, Palmer made the breakthrough that had eluded the greatest medical minds of all the ages...he had discovered the cause of nearly all human dis-ease.

Durng the next few days, Palmer continued the hand treatments on Lillard's spine. Within a week, Lillard was able to hear as well as anybody and was telling anybody who would listen about Dr. Palmer's hand treatments.

Dr. Palmer's fame quickly spread as he proved that the hand treatments were effective in all sorts of dis-ease disorders and dysfunction's. He became a world renowned specialist in the spine and nerve system.

His research into the cause of dis-ease had led him to the conclusion that misalignment of the spinal column interferes with normal nerve function and thus, creates alteration of structure. IMBALANCE IN THE NERVOUS SYSTEM CAUSES DYSFUNCTION

Everyone knows that if you cut yourself on the outside of the body over time the wound will heal.

Everyone knows that pinched nerves in the back can cause sciatic pain down the legs and that nerves severely compressed cause paralysis.

Why, then, do some of us shut our minds to the same pinched nerve theory when (for instance) the lungs, heart, stomach or other parts of the body become dis-eased ? Such thinking is inconsistent.

Lung, heart and stomach conditions need the same consideration that more obvious forms of paralysis receive. Tissue deprived of nerve energy (impulses) cannot maintain health without neurological guidance.

NATURE HEALS WITH CHIROPRACTIC CARE

Chiropractors do not need to give medicine to restore health. They know that nature provides each person with a built-in druggist capable of compounding medicines, hormones, enzymes and antibiotics. Just as there is a health kit inside your body that heals cuts, mends broken bones and repairs damaged organs...so is there a doctor on the inside who can prescribe everything you need...in the exact dose needed...and without harmful side effects. The human body is capable of healing itself of every dis-ease provided nothing interferes with normal nerve function.

The Doctor of Chiropractic works with the spine and nervous system. Chiropractors were the first to recognizes that spinal bones (vertebrae), twisted slightly out of place (subluxations), interfere with the nervous system. This creates altered physiology resulting in inflammation and irritation. Chiropractors are dedicated to analyzing, locating and removing the subluxation through the chiropractic adjustment. It is through the chiropractic adjustment that homeostasis (inner balance) is reestablished; and health is the result.

You'll find your chiropractor to be an intelligent, scientifically-trained doctor. Many years of professional schooling in basic and clinical sciences have given your chiropractor the necessary background for discretion and judgement in caring for their patients.

Your Chiropractor knows that each patient is an individual...that each spinal column is different...and that each spinal column needs specific chiropractic care.

The Chiropractor is the only doctor in your community with the know-how to restore normal nerve functions, the natural way to lasting health.

That's how Chiropractic heals.

SPREAD THE WORD.
