Chiropractic Care and Acid Reflux Disease / GERD

Chiropractic Care and Acid Reflux Disease / GERD
Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD / Acid Reflux Disease), is becoming more and more prevalent throughout the world, especially among middle-aged and the older segment of the population. However, even pediatric populations are developing GERD signs and symptoms at an alarming rate. Ignoring GERD symptoms or failing to eliminate the cause, can lead to ulcers and esophageal cancer.While diet, smoking, stress, caffeine intake, and certain drugs all contribute to GERD, recent studies suggest that lumbar kyphosis – or the abnormal curvature of the spine – combined with back muscle weakness, can have a “significant effect” on the presence of the disease. Furthermore, increased thoracic–mid back- curvature called hyper-kyphosis has also been found to cause and / or contribute to the signs and symptoms of GERD. There are at least two mechanisms whereby altered spinal and postural alignment can lead to GERD. Chiropractic Care and Acid Reflux Disease First is a direct mechanical...

Can Chiropractic Help With Asthma?

Can Chiropractic Help With Asthma?
According to research, the skyrocketing number of asthma cases has to do with environmental variables such as increased pollution, food preservatives, mold and even genetics to name a few. While seeing a young child with an inhaler was quite a strange site in the 1980′s, today it is not that uncommon to see several kids in a classroom take out their inhalers for much needed relief. Asthma has become a huge problem and everyone agrees that future generations can expect to see even higher numbers of sufferers. Unfortunately there is no cure for asthma but there are ways to control the symptoms and stop it from becoming a larger problem that it already is. Experts agree that staying out of pollution, eating right, and living in a clean environment all help with the onset of symptoms, but what you may not have known is that chiropractic care has also been shown...

Corrective Chiropractic: An End to Pain and Disease

Corrective Chiropractic: An End to Pain and Disease
With more and more people working long hours behind their computers, it’s no surprise that each year millions of Americans turn to their chiropractors, medical doctors, massage therapists, and acupuncturists to help alleviate their nagging neck and back problems. Unfortunately however, those seeking medical intervention, massage therapy, or acupuncture as the means to eliminate their pain will only achieve temporary relief, leaving the root cause of the problem unaddressed. Spinal misalignment as a result of poor posture, accidents, injuries, or even birth trauma put unnecessary, excessive, and often dangerous pressure on the delicate nerves flowing out of the spine. Without proper realignment of the spine, the same nerve interference responsible for back or neck pain will also cause vital organs to dysfunction and go into a state of disease. That’s why most people with back and neck problems, report having other health conditions such as fatigue, headaches, migraines, allergies, indigestion /...

Corrective Chiropractic: Misalignments Cause Health Issues

Corrective Chiropractic: Misalignments Cause Health Issues
Many of us have experienced computer and electronic device malfunction dozens of times throughout our lives; whether the monitor fails to turn on when the computer does, the router stops sending signals to our devices, or the speakers going mute in the middle of our favorite podcast. Whether you are a novice or professional, the first thing we always check for are loose connections or wires coming in and out of our devices. As a matter of fact over 98% of the time, tightening loose connections and wires restores electricity, internet, or audio. The human body – much like the computer and device relationship – is controlled by vital nerve energy coming from the brain. Nerve energy is responsible for the function of our organs, movement of our limbs, and our overall health, energy, and immunity. Therefore, spinal misalignments as a result of injuries, accidents, or even poor posture put excessive...

Corrective Chiropractic: The Safer Alternative to the Flu Shot

Corrective Chiropractic: The Safer Alternative to the Flu Shot
Right around this time of the year, medical doctors urge their patients to vaccinate against the flu. While some patients immediately roll up their sleeves and watch the nurse administer a small dose of virus into their bodies in hopes of avoiding disease, others question if vaccination is really safe and effective; and if not, what is the safest alternative. Chiropractic care has long been shown to strengthen the immune system, and allow the body’s own defense mechanism to fight diseases. During the 1918 flu pandemic for example, millions of people lost their lives to the H1N1 influenza virus. Data gathered a few months later pointed to one interesting statistic; those who sought chiropractic care had a dramatically lesser chance of becoming sick, staying sick, or dying from the flu than those treated medically. Why Chiropractic Care Works The nervous system is responsible for every function in the body; from blinking,...
