Chiropractic 101

What You Need To Know

  1. Your body is under control of the brain and nervous system.
  2. Your brain is protected by the skull, and your spine is protected by the spinal column.
  3. Spinal bones move out of normal alignment and interrupt your normal nerve flow.
  4. This disruption of normal nerve flow is referred to as a vertebral subluxation.
  5. It is vital to know that subluxations can be silent; causing problems long before symptoms occur.
  6. Chiropractors find subluxations, and by performing a spinal adjustment, facilitate the return of normal nerve supply.
  7. Normal nerve supply results in a greater expression of LIFE for you!
  8. Chiropractors look at the underlying issues, instead of treating the surface symptoms.

Your Chiropractor Is Real Help For Real Pain.

Text Neck Syndrome

Text Neck

OMG - it’s an epidemic! Just look around you, everyone has their heads down. Text Neck Syndrome is pain caused by overuse of the head, neck and shoulders due to long periods of time spent looking down at your cell phone, mp3 player, tablet, e-reader, laptop or any other mobile device.

When the head is brought forward and the neck bends, the weight on the cervical spine increases. The anterior head position can cause damage and result in headaches, back pain, muscle damage, nerve damage, spinal disc herniation, spinal disc compression, a decrease in the spinal curve, and much more.

Lower Back Pain

Back pain is debilitating. It can take the joy out of your life for weeks, months, or even years. Back pain can definitely be “serious”, even when it’s not dangerous. Any pain that lasts more than three months is considered chronic. Please, do not to wait that long to get help.

If your job involves lifting, pulling, or anything that twists your spine, it may contribute to back pain. However, sitting at a desk all day comes with its own risks. Especially if your chair is uncomfortable, or you tend to slouch or have poor posture.

Additionally, you may carry your purse, backpack, or briefcase over your shoulder, and it is the lower back that supports the upper body. So, an overstuffed bag will put extra strain on the lower back, especially if you carry it day after day.

Some other possible reasons you may be experiencing low back pain may include a previous injury, being overweight, and/or an inactive lifestyle, etc. See Dr. Dave first for a personalized, comprehensive assessment.
