Chiropractic Care Helps Seniors Stay Active and Avoid Injury Says Huntsville, AL Chiropractic Doctor  chiropractic-care-helps-seniors-stay-active-and-avoid-injury-says-huntsville-al-chiropractic-doctor  Chiropractic Care Helps Seniors Stay Active and Avoid Injury Says Huntsville, AL Chiropractic Doctor  <p>Seniors are prone to experience a decline in their ability to coordinate and move freely. Chiropractor and Dr. Charles Brown, founder of Advanced Chiropractic, reported that chiropractic care may be the best option in restoring this lost mobility. He reported that his practice achieved noteworthy success in assisting elderly to stay active and free from injury.</p> <p>Dr. Charles Brown explained that through regular chiropractic adjustments and physiotherapy, seniors are helped to correct issues of balance and coordination caused by the degenerative changes in the spine or from previous injuries. Coordination is restored by invigorating the neck’s joint receptors to make joint function better balanced and controlled.</p> <p>Many elderly patients considered their aches and pains as a normal occurrence in old age but Dr. Brown believes that this is just a myth as chiropractic care has a great impact in restoring senior’s energetic and pain-free life. As an effective management solution for drug-free pain, chiropractic care maximizes sense of balance and coordination as well as increasing complete body health and wellness.</p> <p>Meanwhile, chiropractic adjustments assist seniors to extend their independence longer.</p> <p>The elderly are opened to risks of falling as part of their balance problems. Studies prove that balance issues are connected to the subluxations taking place in the spine affecting the ability of the brain to communicate messages through the central nervous system.<br /> According to Dr. Brown, chiropractic adjustments will eliminate subluxations and reinstate correct alignment to the spine consequently improving balance. Proper coordination and balance decrease the risk for falling so the elderly in their golden years will be able to maintain a active, healthy and independent lifestyle.</p> <p>Dr. Brown from Spokane emphasized that the procedure is safe for seniors as long as adjustments are adapted to meet their specific health needs. All patients are required to undergo complete assessment and full physical exam prior to receiving care.

How to prevent back pain:: Tips from Huntsville, AL Chiropractic Center  how-to-prevent-back-pain-tips-from-huntsville-al-chiropractic-center  How to prevent back pain:: Tips from Huntsville, AL Chiropractic Center  <p>Patients can easily avoid back pains while shoveling snow, announced Dr. Charles Brown of Huntsville Chiropractic Center. They are providing four useful tips for thousands of individuals experiencing aching necks, lower back and shoulder pains due to wrong posturing while shoveling snow. Four top tips from Taber Chiropractic aimed to reduce <a href="http://hsvchirocenter.com/huntsville-chiropractor/lower-back-pain">back injury</a> and pain while dealing with snow.</p> <p>These tips include: (1) doing the correct posture and lifting techniques; (2) warming up prior to the task; (3) continue shoveling during the day; and (4) taking frequent rests to reduce back strain. Chiropractor Charles Brown considers shoveling snow as strenuous physical work so she always recommends that patients warm up prior to the task. It can be a quick jaunt around the corner merely to start the blood flowing and muscles mobilizing. The proper time to shovel snow is early in the day following a snowfall.</p> <p>Dr. Charles Brown added that shoveling snow is considered hard work but it cannot be a neglected. The longer the task is put off, the heavier the snow pack forms with ice on top so it becomes extremely difficult and physically strenuous to remove the snow.</p> <p>Proper posture to shovel snow: stand in a squat stance; bend your knees with feet hip-width apart while keeping your back straight. Do not bend from the waist and use your legs for strength while lifting. It is recommended that you place one hand on the handle and the other hand close to the shovel blade to distribute and support load evenly.</p> <p>Dr. Brown cautioned patients that when they shovel snow, they should never throw and twist snow over the shoulder as this movement can put unnecessary strain on the back. Individuals who are prone experience back, neck or shoulder pain for more than 48-hours after shoveling snow may benefit from chiropractic care.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> The chiropractor stated that feeling stiff and sore after engaging in strenuous exercise; however, an lingering pain must be checked out by a qualified medical professional. Prompt action to deal with musculoskeletal injury will minimize the risk of congenital health problems.<br /> Located in <strong>Huntsville Alabama</strong>, <strong>Huntsville Chiropractic Cente</strong>r ffers complete chiropractic care services.

Have Bone and Muscle Pain - Here is why you should see a Chiropractor  have-bone-and-muscle-pain-here-is-why-you-should-see-a-chiropractor  Have Bone and Muscle Pain - Here is why you should see a Chiropractor  <p>Many Huntsville / North Alabama residents are in a quandary on how effective chiropractic can be. But studies proved that the Chiropractic really works; consider these 3 reasons.</p> <p><strong>An effective back pain reliever</strong><br /> Chiropractic works as it truly relieves back pain. Most back pain is the consequence of muscles working tightly together against the nerves. If your vertebrae or the bones in your spine are out of alignment, they naturally pulling the muscles with them and due to the tightening of the muscles, they are inflamed. Nerves, too, are being pinched and send pain signals to the brain. The problem is easily solved by chiropractic by a single spinal adjustment that pushes those bones and muscles back into its proper place, getting off the pinched nerves.</p> <p><strong>Restoration of mobility</strong><br /> Another magical solution by the Chiropractor is to restore mobility. One of the players sprained his ankle playing soccer at Merrimack Soccer Complex or John Hunt Park in Huntsville / North Alabama. He will complain of pain as the natural flow of nerve impulses is blocked. Dr. Brown, physician at the reputable Huntsville Chiropractic Center take care of patients not only with spinal disorders, but for limited movements of the extremity as well. Manipulation of hips, <a href="http://hsvchirocenter.com/huntsville-chiropractor/sprains-strains-and-muscle-tears">knees, shoulders</a> and other joints can restore their movements and functions. Once the joint is mobilized thru chiropractic adjustment/manipulation, its painful lack of movement is gone. Injury is treated without surgery, benefit for most patients.</p> <p><strong>Natural healing results</strong><br /> The bottom line in the work of chiropractic is the natural healing of the body. It is the best option to resolve all kinds of musculoskeletal issues. The spine contains the spinal cord that is the center of the Central Nervous System. Every time the vertebra is aligned, the Nervous System enables the&nbsp;&nbsp; brain and body to properly communicate. When this happens, the body is able to heal itself – so no need of medication or surgery.</p> <p><strong>How does chiropractic work for you?</strong><br /> In Huntsville / North Alabama, you have lots of options in finding a good chiropractor. This is the reason why many chiropractic offices and centers in the city are opened for chiropractic works. This is a great way to relieve back pain and to cure your back bones. The procedure is free from medication and surgery.</p>   2015-12-14 23:41:32  1366  View Edit Delete

Did you know that Chiropractic decreases postpartum pelvis pain  did-you-know-that-chiropractic-decreases-postpartum-pelvis-pain  Did you know that Chiropractic decreases postpartum pelvis pain  <p>A case report of a study made March of 2015 involved the Chiropractic treatment of a female, age 30 who was suffering from severe postpartum pain from symphysis pubis dysfunction during pregnancy. The study author indicates that condition of postpartum women will improve by combining therapy with chiropractic adjustments.</p> <p>It stated that Chiropractic care provided included a number of remedies, as home care advice, a sacroiliac belt and stabilizing exercises plus specific chiropractic adjustments to minimize dysfunction of joint dysfunction. Immobility problem and pain associated with postpartum pelvic pain due to pubic symphysis diastasis decreased.</p> <p>A reduction in pain<br /> The study revealed that the pain experienced by the patient was immediately improved after the treatment. Several procedures were involved:</p> <ul> <li>chiropractic adjustments</li> <li>stimulation from electricity</li> <li>moistened heat</li> <li>use of sacroiliac belt</li> <li>specific stabilizing exercises.</li> <li>trigger point release</li> </ul> <p>The pain of the patient was alleviated from 2 on the VAS pain scale to 2 on the fourth visit. The patient resumes her normal routine when the pain level was 1. Moreover, level of diastasis decreased from 17 millimeters to just below 10 millimeters.<br /> PubMed.gov and other literature about Chiropractic were utilized by the author to find other studies conducted of the subject. Before the study, no previous literature on chiropractic care of a patient with diastasis existed and only two articles that described pelvic pain during pregnancy were found.</p> <p><strong>Symphysis pubis diastasis has other treatments</strong><br /> 1. Possible conservative treatment is recommended since the complication that separates pubic symphysis during the time of pregnancy and vaginal delivery could be diagnosed based upon symptoms and radiography.<br /> 2. Surgical intervention may be allowed when the separations are measured greater than 25 millimeters. However, it will interfere with breast-feeding due the presence of other drugs.</p> <p><strong>Conclusions</strong><br /> Studies proved that chiropractic care with stabilizing exercises have the propensity to minimize joint dysfunction at the lumbar, pelvic areas. Postpartum women can resume their normal activities. Study author admits that there is no explanation how intervention helped to improve the condition of the patient or how pain is reduced and diastasis alleviated. There is the need for further investigation. Meanwhile, chiropractors, midwives and obstetricians and encouraged to continue their collaboration.</p>   2015-12-19 23:41:54  1460  View Edit Delete

What You Need to Know About Rheumatoid Arthritis  what-you-need-to-know-about-rheumatoid-arthritis  What You Need to Know About Rheumatoid Arthritis  <p>As we get old, we experience different joint problems. Over the years, arthritis is part of the aging process and many people have been experiencing this problem which prevents them from doing the activities that they used to do. But arthritis does not only affect older people. In fact, there are various studies that show that even younger people can have rheumatoid arthritis. With the recent developments in the medical field, those who are suffering from arthritis get to have access to treatment instead of just using drug therapy or having a bed rest.</p> <p><strong>What is Rheumatoid Arthritis?</strong></p> <p>Many have been suffering from arthritis but few know what it is. <a href="http://www.arthritis.org/about-arthritis/understanding-arthritis/what-is-arthritis.php">Arthritis</a> refers to joint inflammation and it is the kind of pain that affects certain parts of the body like the lower back and the neck. There are studies that show that arthritis can affect up to about 80% of those who are 50 years old and above. A person who is suffering from rheumatoid may experience loss of function, stiffness, pain and swelling. And unlike the ordinary pain that you experience in the body, arthritis has its distinguished features.</p> <p>For instance, you experience tender and swollen joints. You also feel fatigue and may experience having a fever. So when you have arthritis, you don’t feel well which stops you from doing the things that they like to do. When you are having a long rest, you feel stiffness in your body and there is pain. And contrary to what some people would think, arthritis can be a chronic disease can last for several years. This disease does not only affect joints but even other parts of the body.</p> <p>Every person may experience a different kind of arthritis as it is highly individual. There are some people who may experience having mild arthritis that can last a few months while there are some who may experience it for years. Those who are suffering from moderate arthritis tend to have worse symptoms and they may also experience what you call periods of remission. Those who have severe symptoms experience pain almost all of the time which can last for years and can result to severe disability and damages in the joint.</p> <p><strong>Chiropractic Care</strong></p> <p>The good news is that there are now effective and cheaper alternative to treat this disease. Over the years, patients have come to seek the expertise of a <a href="http://www.hsvchirocenter.com">chiropractor</a> in search for arthritis solution. Chiropractors can provide effective solutions. Arthritis usually occurs in areas where there are misalignments and where trauma has happened. For example, if you happened to have neck/back pain after an accident or sport injury, this would result to degeneration and can then result to arthritis.</p> <p>In opting for traditional treatment, patients would get anti-inflammatories. They might work but these medications also have risks and side effects. For instance, some people may have high blood pressure, bleeding, ulcer, blurred vision, dizziness, kidney problem and even death.</p> <p>Arthritis patients need to undergo rehabilitation programs that utilize a long term approach. This disease develops over the years. As such, there is no such thing as an overnight solution. It requires continuous treatment and the patient has to undergo consistent treatment.</p>     237  View Edit Delete

Promoting Chiropractic Care to Reduce Pain Medicine Usage  promoting-chiropractic-care-to-reduce-pain-medicine-usage  Promoting Chiropractic Care to Reduce Pain Medicine Usage  <p>From joint to back pain, most people would rely on the use of medications to seek relief. And although there is really nothing wrong in using such medications, it is better to have a much safer alternative that does not result to negative side effects. If you are looking for the best choice to reduce narcotic pain, chiropractic care is a good alternative.</p> <p>In a research study that was conducted at the Dartmouth College-New Hampshire, they tried to study if using a holistic treatment like chiropractic care could reduce pain medicine usage. In the said study, about 57% of 33,000 patients reduce their usage of medicine.</p> <p><strong>The Opiate Crisis</strong></p> <p>When it comes to getting relief and managing pain, many use opiate. Unfortunately, although this can alleviate pain as well as other symptoms, it is also not a good thing. Way back in 2014, there were about 14,000 people who overused the use of pain medication. This has resulted to what medical experts say as the “Great Opiate Crisis”. Most insurance companies do not give coverage for chiropractic care and treatment. As this problem gets more alarming, pharmacists and physicians are now boosting security measures. They limit how long a patient can take medications. To avoid experiencing problems and side effects, patients using such medications should take the necessary precautions especially when using opiates.</p> <p>What happens is that most people would just turn to medication. The use of pain medicine can reduce the pain but they do not give long term solution. They just hide the pain. But with <a href="http://www.hsvchirocenter.com">chiropractic care</a>, a chiropractor can search for viable solutions to effectively alleviate the pain.</p> <p><strong>Impact of Painkillers</strong></p> <p>Almost all people would use painkillers. And when you go for chiropractic treatment, this is one of the things that you wouldn’t find there. Many think that painkillers are completely safe but there are actually painkillers like for instance oxycodone, fentanyl, hydrocodone and methadone that can alter your brain’s chemistry. As you continuously use painkillers, the body starts to have tolerance for such medications and would want for higher dosage. Once you stop using painkillers, you start to experience withdrawal symptoms. Another side effect is that using medication can result to hyperalgesia or a condition that increases sensitivity to pain.</p> <p><strong>Safer Alternative</strong></p> <p>To avoid having to deal with the impacts of using medications, you can turn to chiropractic care and treatment. It is considered to be safe and at the same time effective option. Chiropractors use a holistic approach and cognitive therapy that enables patients to acquire pain coping techniques. Patients are strongly recommended to exercise to have better motion and to excrete endorphins. Another thing is that chiropractors do massage therapy and topical therapy which can have several health benefits for the body.</p> <p>By addressing the misalignment, it can significantly reduce the pain. Yes, medication can give quick relief but it just masks the pain. You also have to factor in the fact that it has side effects and it really does not help you treat the problem. The use of medication can’t realign the vertebrae which is one of the causes of pain. With the help of the expertise of chiropractors, you can strengthen your body’s healing capacity and reduce the need of using medication to get rid of pain.</p>     238  View Edit Delete

How Does Spinal Manipulation Work  how-does-spinal-manipulation-work  how Does Spinal Manipulation Work  <p>Adjusting the spine can point out to different kinds of manual therapies that <a href="http://www.hsvchirocenter.com/huntsville-chiropractor/lower-back-pain">manipulate the joints in the spine</a>. The correct term for such treatments is what you call the SMT or spinal manipulative therapy. Opinions regarding the use of such treatment greatly vary in the medical industry. Some express concern as to whether this kind of treatment is safe and if it is even effective. Yet despite the skepticisms, there has been few substantiated scientific research that would establish as to whether spinal manipulative therapy is effective and safe.</p> <p>For many who are interested to get to know more about this therapy, one would simply ask as to whether spine can be adjusted? Yes, it can and adjusting the spine is often quite a complex issue especially when you are going to take the perspective of chiropractors and their concept of subluxation. A lot of experts in the field and even chiropractors do not adhere to the idea that spinal manipulative treatment can prevent disease.</p> <p>Back in 2012, there was a study conducted where researchers found out that spinal manipulative therapy cannot effectively cure low back pain. The said findings are back by recent studies conducted by the Journal of the American Medical Association. And yet although, there is controversy that clouds pertaining to the safety and effectiveness of this treatment, there are still a lot of people who try it especially those who crave it. Most experts are skeptical as to whether it can even offer a solution. Then again, it is also difficult to completely negate and say that SMT is not helpful at all. In other ways, it might be useful for some patients.</p> <p>The whole picture gets more complex to understand and to analyze especially when you take into account the concept of joint dysfunction of chiropractors. Even this has many interpretations. There are <a href="http://www.hsvchirocenter.com">Huntsville chiropractors</a> that place high importance on this concept and would use spinal manipulation in order to treat visceral disease. For years, this concept has become really popular at the same time also very much controversial.</p> <p><strong>How Does It Work</strong></p> <p>Spinal manipulation is just one of the different options that can provide relief to low back pain. This treatment would include physical therapy, massage and exercise. Despite the skepticisms, many would still attest for the effectiveness considering this makes use of conventional treatment. It is a safe treatment if it is performed by a certified and trained practitioner. However, there are side effects like for instance discomfort. But this is just a minor side effect and will usually go away in a few days. How about serious complications? Some patients may experience complications but they rarely happen.</p> <p>This treatment is practiced by licensed healthcare professionals including physical therapists, osteopathic physicians, chiropractors, naturopathic physicians and medical doctors. They perform the spinal manipulation therapy by using their hands or they may also use a certain device in order to apply force to the spinal joint. The force used would depend on the form of manipulation. Basically, the main goal of spinal manipulation is to provide relief for pain and to improve motion as well as other physical functions.</p> <p>There have been debates about spinal manipulation over the years. But considering that there are satisfied patients who have already sought relief then it only goes to show that this treatment offers a viable alternative to patients.</p>     341  View Edit Delete
