A quote I saw on Facebook today:

“Medicine is interested in the problem with the person. Chiropractic is interested in the person with the problem. Medicine focuses on the circulatory system. Chiropractic focuses on the nervous system. Medicine kills germs. Chiropractic strengthens immunity. Medicine attempts to suppress symptoms. Chiropractic attempts to enhance adaptability. Medicine makes the doctor or drugs the hero paper writing service. Chiropractic makes the individual’s capacity to self heal the hero.
Be proud of the differences. It’s why patients seek out and appreciate chiropractic care.” – Dr. Bill Esteb

Anatomy 101

istockphoto

The spine is one of the most important parts our body. It has three main functions:

  • Protects the spinal cord
  • Gives the body structure and support
  • Allows us to move freely

The Bones and Joints

The spine is made of 33 bones called vertebra that are stacked one above each other. There are:

  • 7 cervical vertebra in the neck
  • 12 thoracic vertebra in the middle back
  • 5 lumbar vertebra in the low back.

The sacrum is a wedged shaped bone in the pelvis made of 5 fused vertebra. The tail end of the spine (literally) we have the coccyx made of 4 fused coccygeal vertebra. The vertebra are given names based on their position in the spine. L1 is the first lumbar vertebra. There are 2 bones that have special names because of their special function. The atlas (C1) holds up the head and the axis allows the head to rotate from side to side.

Bones and Joints

Here you can see 2 vertebra stacked on top of the other. 3 joints join the vertebra to each other. The large disc in the front is like a soft cushion and provides support and absorbs pressure. The disc has a poor blood supply and receives its nutrition via sucking the nutrients from the body when you move. Behind the disc there are 2 facet joints. The facet joints guide the movement of the vertebra and have a large supply of nerves that feed your brain with information about where your spine is and how it is moving. Your brain uses this information when it is deciding how your organs should function. Some amazing research by Dr. Akio Sato has been done in this field. This is why is it is so important to maintain the normal movement of your spine. Between the facet joints and the disc is a gap called the intervertebral foramen or the IVF for short. The spinal nerves exit the spinal canal through the IVF. There are a number of bumps on each vertebra. You can see the transverse and spinouts processes in the picture. The muscles and ligaments of the spine attach to these bumps.

The Ligaments

There are a number of ligaments that cross between two vertebra. The ligaments hold the bones together while still allowing the joints to move. Some of the ligaments cross the intervetebral foramen and reduce the space the spinal nerves have to exit the spinal canal. When there is joint restriction the ligaments can rub twist and squash the nerves reducing their ability to carry healthy information from the brain to the body or the body back to the brain. With age and lack of exercise the ligaments become shorter and harder, making the joints stiffer. In the long term tight and stiff ligaments pull on the bones and produce bone spurs. Exercise and adjustments to maximize the health of the ligaments will minimize the effects of osteoarthritis in the future.

The Muscles

The Muscles

here are multiple layers of muscles in the back. Some are for supporting our spine and are called postural muscles or core muscles others are for moving our spine and are called the prime movers. The muscles are arranged in different patterns to bend our spine forwards backwards, sideways and rotate to each side. Like all muscles of the body the spinal muscles require good exercise and stretching to maintain their health and the health of your spine.

The Nerves

The spinal cord is the information superhighway between your brain and your body. Without it you could not move any part of your body and your organs could not function. It is made of millions of nerves. The spinal cord is protected by the bony spinal canal formed by the vertebra that are stacked one on top of the other. It is also protected by the duramater, a tough covering around the cord. Between the duramater and the spinal cord is the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) The CSF is important for protection of the central nervous system (CNS), which includes the brain and the spinal cord and feeds the CNS with nutrients from the blood.

The Peripheral Nerves

The spinal nerves convey information between the central nervous system and the rest of the body. The spinal nerves exit the spinal canal through each of the intervertebral foramen between each pair of vertebra. Like the tributaries of a river the small spinal nerves form larger nerves, such as the sciatic nerve, which runs down the buttock into the leg. This is how your brain controls every single cell and organ in you body. The following chart describes which spinal nerves innervate (supply) which parts of the body. You will notice that all the body parts actually receive information from more than one spinal nerve and the nerves travel a great distance to get to the organ they are supplying. This is why the actual problem in the spinal can be a long way away from you feeling the problem.

All of us here at SpineWise hope everyone had an awesome summer!

Hypnotherapy benefits

 

Hypnosis is a natural state that we all enter into automatically many times during the day.

It is the state where we just get lost in our own world hardly aware of the outside world.  The person in a hypnotic trance is accessing the deeper part of their imagination rather than the analytical faculty of reasoning and understanding.

When we sleep we enter in between the state of sensible where we feel our breathing and heart rate slows down and our brain waves start to change from the normal beta state of waking consciousness into the alpha state, where Hypnotherapy is conducted. The in-between state called hypnodial state and in this state, we start to feel relaxed and easy. We all experience this state just before sleep and we just wake up. Hypnotherapy is the usage of various psychotherapy manners when the client is guided into a deep relaxing and amenable state of hypnosis where the client’s target can be narrowed and directed by the hypnotherapist to create change at the deep-rooted level. In this state our minds demanding conscious faculty is temporarily bypassed and where the unconscious mind can be addressed with hypnotic suggestions without the unconscious minds judgemental reasoning process getting in the way.

If you asked most people about what their approach of hypnosis were they would probably say it’s about a person or persons been taken over by some evil arch nemesis and being bent against their will to do the villains biding.

The most common issue involving chiropractic isn’t an injury at all. It is simply some mild soreness after adjustment. Think about how your muscles feel if you’ve done something you don’t normally do. You feel sore because your muscles, bones, and ligaments have stimulated in ways they are not used to moving. There are some services in Bowmanville for Chiropractic treatment.

This is what happens during a chiropractic adjustment but on a minor scale. Any soreness you feel will be gone within 24 hours and most patients feel immediately better with no soreness whatsoever.

best-home-health-servicesHome health care is just what the name suggests – health care services that can be taken care of in your home.

Ear infection

Ear infections are one of the health problems that can be addressed by chiropractic care. Otitis Media, for one, a common ear infection among children, can be treated by chiropractors specializing in the pediatrics field. The misalignment of the top two vertebrae in the spine is usually the root of the problem. This condition of the spine for children and infants may have occurred from birth. The doctor can easily detect this condition in anyone, and the corrective measure is very simple and painless.


The good news is that parents may spare their children the agony of ear infections by following the seven simple steps outlined below.


1. Consider Chiropractic Care: Chiropractors over the last 50 years have known that by use of adjustments to the neck and spine, they can treat and eliminate a majority of ear infections if given the opportunity. Chiropractic care focuses on diagnosing improper alignments of the spine and correcting them by adjustments made to certain parts of the back. To children, a chiropractor only need apply slight pressure to the spine, in order to provide them with normal functioning of their nerves and joints. Unlike some Doctors, Chiropractors seek out the main cause of the health problem rather than just treating the symptoms with medication.


2. BreastFeed Your child: Studies show that breastfeeding bolsters an infant’s immune system, in turn preventing ear infection. Six-month old infants who were fed exclusively by breastfeeding were half as likely to experience a first episode of ear infection, compared with formula-fed babies.


3. Avoid Unnecessary Antibiotics: What’s wrong with antibiotics for ear infection? During infection, parents should not give unnecessary antibiotics to their children.


4. Stay Smoke-Free: Children who are exposed to cigarette smoke develop more ear infections than children who grow up in smoke-free environments. (Pediatric Dentistry 1998;20:327-30) So, if you smoke, quit – or, at the very least, make sure to smoke outside and far away from your child. In addition, avoid bringing your little one into smoke-filled homes or restaurants.


5. Limit Dairy Intake: Studies suggest that a diet rich in dairy products – such as cow’s milk, cheese and ice cream – boosts a child’s odds of ear infection. That’s why many doctors of chiropractic advise parents of ear infection-prone children to substitute dairy items such as soy milk, tofu, and tempeh.


If you are a parent with children who suffer from chronic ear infections, call us now and make an appointment for a consultation. We can help get your children out of pain and on a path to success in life, school and sports. Don’t spend another sleepless night pacing the halls with a screaming toddler in your arms. You should not wait, and don’t need to wait, until another ear infection starts. Preventive care is a better option. Also, we’d like to answer all your questions, give you the facts and relieve your anxiety at a time when your child is not in pain. Of course, if your child needs immediate care, we want to see both of you as soon as possible. But make sure you get them to some kind of doctor to help them get well.

Headaches

Nerve irritation is the leading cause of headache pain for many sufferers.

Tired of taking medication for headache pain that does not go away? Find out how many Canadians are finding a more permanent solution for their headache pain naturally.

headache

There are an estimated 4.5 million Canadians that suffer from severe, recurring attacks of migraine and tension headaches. They spend upwards of $40 million each year on over-the-counter and prescription drugs in their search for permanent relief. For some, the medication works. Unfortunately for many the relief obtained is temporary at best. A cycle of headaches and medication often occurs without any lasting relief found. If you think this describes your pain then there is good news for you.

Recent studies link headaches pain to nerve irritation. One study, conducted at the University of Maryland, found a connection between muscle tension at the base of the neck and headaches. Muscle contractions interfere with the sensitive fibers at the base of the neck that lead to the brain and spinal cord. This muscle tension often plays a contributing factor to headache pain. Another study conducted by Dr. Wright found that the vast majority of migraine headache sufferers has misalignments of the spinal vertebrae in the neck that was placing pressure on the spinal nerves.

Our remedy of headache pain is two-fold:

  • Remove pressure on the nerves caused by spinal misalignments.
  • Reduce tension in neck muscles to minimize nerve pressure due to tight muscles.

This strategy works for many headache sufferers, not only in our office but also in several studies. One such study, conducted by the government of New Zealand found that the majority of people who suffered from spinal misalignments has their headaches relieved or their condition improved through chiropractic care. And in follow-up studies of the same patients it was found that many were still without recurring headache pain two years later.

Of course, not all headaches can be helped with chiropractic care. But, if you suffer from persistent migraine of tension headaches you owe it to yourself to come to our office for an exam and consultation. If we can not help you we will tell you, and we can refer you to another health care professional that can help.

Can a chiropractor really get rid of my headaches?
It will help to understand what causes most headaches. Your spine protects your nervous system which starts with the brain and becomes the spinal cord. When the vertebrae in your neck are unable to move properly, it irritates or puts pressure on the nerves in that area. That can cause headaches. To correct this problem (called a subluxation) a chiropractor gently adjusts the vertebrae. Since most headaches are caused by subluxations, they will soon disappear.

Why would I have spinal problems in my neck?
There are many reasons. They can originally occur during the birth process, and as your body grows and matures. Also, falls, sports activities, motor vehicle accidents, bad posture or simply the stresses of daily living can cause spinal problems. It is also very common for headache sufferers to experience neck pain and stiffness.

But my headaches are migraines?
Migraine headaches are usually severe and sharp, throbbing in nature, and generally affect one side of the head. Tension headaches tend to occur frequently, last a long time and are characterized by a dull, steady pain that feels like a band of pressure around the neck. But despite these differences they are closely related. Chiropractic care has been proven to be extremely effective in treating migraine and tension headaches as well as neck pain and stiffness.

What will the chiropractor do to treat my headaches?
Your first visit will include a consultation, examination and possibly an x-ray to help diagnose your problem. Once your condition is fully understood, your chiropractor will explain your test and x-ray results and outline a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs. Your chiropractor will use highly skilled, gentle manipulations to adjust the spine.

Once my headache stops, does the chiropractic care end?
Your body continues to heal after the pain has gone. Continuing to have chiropractic adjustments helps to retrain your vertebrae to hold their healthy positions. Your nervous system will function more efficiently and your body will be better able to heal itself. In time, exercise, a healthy diet, and periodic visits to the chiropractor will help you stay healthy, pain free, and live life to the fullest.

You should also know that chiropractic can help with frozen shoulder. Through conservative measures, a chiropractor can loosen the adhesions that lead to the pain and immobility of frozen shoulder. At first this is done through stretches. These must be done very gently at first. Breaking too many adhesions at once simply leads to a proliferation of new scar tissue. Once the motion starts to return, the stretching can be done more intensively. The patient will also be given an active role in their care, through home stretching and exercise. Additionally, as frozen shoulder is associated with degeneration of the spine, your chiropractor will also examine your spine.

If you are looking for a Bowmanville chiropractor to deal with your shoulder, look no further than the team at SpineWise will diagnose your shoulder problem and give you the proper course of action, helping you get back to life!   Call us at 905-623-8388shoulder

Sciatica~ Bowmanville Chiropractor

Sciatica; something many have heard of but few understand. The first thing you need to know about sciatica is that it is not a diagnosNanaimo Chiropractor - Sciaticais. It’s a symptom. Just like a runny nose is not a diagnosis, but is a symptom of conditions such as colds, sinus infections or allergies. So you need to find out is what the cause of your sciatica is.The Symptom: Sciatica is the term used to describepressure on the sciatic nerve. The pain runs down the back side of the leg. Generally, the more pressure there is on the nerve, the further the pain goes down the leg. The sciatic nerve is formed from nerve roots starting from the lower spinal cord. It controls the sensation, muscles and blood vessels of the leg. Sciatic pain can range from a dull ache to sharp and stabbing. The pain is generally worse when going to stand, coughing, sneezing and bearing down. Back pain is also found with sciatica.Very often there are odd sensations, known as paresthesia, when the nerve is compressed. This includes pins and needles or numbness. As the sciatic nerve controls muscles, you can find muscle issues as well. With mild compression you get spasm or cramping. With increased pressure you will find weakness and incoordination to the point where the sufferer is unable to walk on their heels or toes. As the spinal nerves also control the pelvic organs, it is possible to get internal complaints such as bowel, bladder or reproductive symptoms.

If at any point you notice loss of control over your bowel or bladder or have numbness over the genitals, this requires immediate attention as there is extreme pressure on the tail end of the spinal cord, known as Cauda Equina Syndrome.

Causes: As already mentioned sciatica is merely a symptom. You can correct the sciatica if you know the cause:

nanaimo chiropractor misalignment

1. Misalignment (Subluxation): The spinal nerves leave the spine through small openings known as foramen. Each foramen is formed by two vertebra, or spinal bones. When a spinal misalignment occurs, the opening is narrowed. With this, pressure will be placed on the nerve roots and lead to sciatica. Misalignments occur through a single large trauma or cumulatively though smaller traumas, including poor posture. Your chiropractor will be able to detect and correct a misalignment.

degenerative disc disease - nanaimo chiropractic

2. Degenerative disc disease (stenosis): If left untreated, spinal misalignments will lead to degenerative disc disease. The intervertebal disc is the soft compressive shock absorber found between the vertebrae. It is one of the boundaries to the foramen, providing height to the opening. Unlike most tissues of the body, the discs lack a significant blood supply. They receive their nutrition through movement. Movement pumps old fluid out of the disc and fresh fluid in. This process is known as imbibition. Bones that are misaligned lack movement and will lead to degenerative disc disease. As the disc degenerates it will lose height and the vertebrae will form bony spurs known as osteophytes, both of which will cause narrowing of the foramen. This narrowing is known as stenosis. With less opening for the spinal nerve there is increased likelihood of pressure being placed on the nerve root, leading to sciatica.

disc herniation - nanaimo chiropractor

3. Disc herniation (slipped disc): With continued degeneration, disc herniation becomes more likely. At the centre of the disc is a fluid filed sac, called the nucleus pulposus. You can think of the nucleus as being like a water balloon. It absorbs compressive force, such as when you jump. Surrounding the nucleus are a layers of rings known as the annular rings, so named because they look like the annular rings of a tree. The annular rings contain the nucleus pulposus. When disc degeneration takes place, tears form in the annular rings. This provides a pathway for the nucleus to push to the outside edge of the disc, much like a water balloon pushing through the gaps between your fingers when you squeeze it. When the nucleus reaches the outer border of the disc it will bulge out. This is called a disc herniation, commonly referred to as a “slipped disc.”

Piriformis Nanaimo Chiropractor

4. Piriformis: After the spinal roots join to form the sciatic nerve, the nerve exits the pelvis between two muscles deep in the buttock. One of these muscles is known as the piriformis muscle. If particularly tight it can cause compression of the sciatic nerve. Oftentimes, the piriformis is pulled tight by a misalignment of the sacroiliac (SI) joint. On rare occasion, it is possible that the sciatic nerve actually passes through the piriformis muscle, making muscular compression of the nerve much more likely.

Treatment: Proper diagnosis of the cause of your sciatica can only be determined by a thorough assessment. Find yourself a good chiropractor. The assessment will include a thorough consultation where the doctor listens to you and finds out everything you can tell them about your present condition. A medical history, including old traumas, will also be taken at this point. There’s an old but true saying that the patient will tell you 80-90% of the diagnosis.

Following this, a physical examination will be conducted. This would include orthopaedic, neurologic and chiropractic testing. If necessary, the chiropractor may take x-rays.

After you assessment, your chiropractor will be able to identify the source of your sciatica. Only after knowing the cause of the sciatica can the problem be corrected. There may be more than one treatment method for the problem. Your chiropractor will choose the techniques based on their clinical opinion. With almost all cases of sciatica, a program of stability exercises is an absolute vital component to correction and prevention of future recurrences. It is likely that you will need regular chiropractic maintenance to ensure the best possible spinal and nervous system health.

It’s that time of year again where Canadians go from the barbeque tongs to soup ladles. Yes my fellow Canadians, it’s comfort food season. With the cold weather already in full force here is a deliciously healthy soup recipe courtesy of Darcy Maslen N.D.

 

Darcy chose this particular recipe for two reasons.  The first is that you don’t have to use tomatoes.  The second is that so many soups are too brothy and this soup is nice and filling.

 

Ingredients:

 

1 tbsp coconut oil (unscented) or olive oil

4 medium or spicy Italian sausage, casings removed, sliced

1 large onion, diced

5 cloves of garlic, minced or crushed

1/2 cup pearl barley pre-rinsed and drained

4 cups water

1 cup dried green lentils pre-rinsed and drained

1 bone-in chicken breast, skin removed

900ml of homemade chicken/bone broth Or carton of sodium reduced chicken broth

1 19oz can of chick peas pre-rinsed/drained

8oz trimmed fresh spinach leaves, chopped

1 cup mild tomato salsa (optional)

1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

 

Instructions:

 

1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat.  Add sausage meat, onion and garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes or until sausage is cooked through.

2. Add barley and stir for 1 minute.

3. Add water, lentils, chicken and chicken broth.  Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer covered for 30 minutes.

4. Remove the chicken breast and once cooled enough to handle begin to shred meat and return it to the soup while discarding the bones.  Add chickpeas, spinach salsa and parsley.  Stir to blend and simmer for 5 minutes.

 

Serves 6-8.  Wonderful served with homemade biscuits.  Any leftovers will become more stew-like as the barley and lentils take on the water.  Still delicious though!

What to Expect

 

Physiotherapists work with clients of all ages and with a wide range of health conditions. Whether it’s pain management and rehabilitation from an acute injury like a sprained ankle, or management of chronic conditions such as diabetes or heart disease, a physiotherapist can help. But physiotherapy is not limited to rehabilitation of injury and the effects of disease or disability. A physiotherapist also provides education and advice for health promotion, disease and injury prevention.

 

 

How physiotherapists assess

 

A physiotherapist will assess you using detailed history-taking as well as specific physical tests and measures, such as flexibility or range of motion. He or she will then analyze the assessment findings and use clinical reasoning to establish a diagnosis. Together, you will explore your current abilities and functional needs so the physiotherapist can plan treatments that are consistent with your goals and general health status, and which incorporate approaches and techniques supported by the best evidence available.

 

 

How physiotherapists treat

 

Physiotherapy treatments can include the following:

  • Personalized exercise programs designed to improve your strength, range of motion, and function
  • Massage
  • Joint mobilization and manipulation to reduce pain and stiffness
  • Hot and cold packs and modalities to relieve pain, reduce swelling, speed up the healing process, improve movement and function
  • Airway clearance methods to assist people with breathing difficulties
  • Skin and wound care
  • Management of incontinence including pelvic floor re-education
  • Functional activity and tolerance testing and training
  • Work and occupational re-training and return to work planning
  • Prescription, fabrication and application of assistive, adaptive, supportive and protective devices and equipment
  • Environmental change, focusing on removing barriers to function

 

Payment and referral

 

For many Canadians, health insurance providers cover all cost or a portion of the cost of physiotherapist care. Some extended health insurance plans may require a physician’s referral in order to reimburse you for physiotherapist service, but it’s not always necessary. Call your health insurance provider to confirm your level of coverage beforehand and to determine whether or not you require a physician referral for reimbursement.

Physiotherapist’s fees range from province to province and can vary with practice conditions.

If you or your loved ones have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, you may be wondering what the disorder means for you. The condition still remains a mystery, although an estimate of 700,000-1.2 million Canadians, mainly women, have fibromyalgia syndrome or are suffering with its related symptoms. Even diagnosing the condition can be difficult: according to the National Fibromyalgia Association, it can take a patient up to 4 years to be correctly diagnosed.

 

Fibromyalgia is typically diagnosed in patients with:

• Widespread pain in all 4 quadrants of the body for a minimum of 3 months; and

• Tenderness or pain in at least 11 tender points when pressure is applied. These tender points clump around the neck, shoulder, chest, hip, knee, and elbow regions. Some fibromyalgia experts say, however, that many people may still have fibromyalgia with fewer than 11 tender points if they have widespread pain and several other common symptoms, including:

• Fatigue

• Sleep disorders

• Chronic headaches

• Dizziness or light-headedness

• Cognitive or memory impairment

• Malaise and muscle pain after exertion

• Jaw pain

• Morning stiffness

• Menstrual cramping

• Irritable bowels

• Numbness and tingling sensations

• Skin and chemical sensitivities

 

Correct Diagnosis Is Key

Accurate diagnosis of fibromyalgia is very elusive, so if you are diagnosed with the disorder—or suspect that you have it—seek the opinion of more than 1 health care provider. Other conditions may create fibromyalgia—like pain, fatigue, and other symptoms. Ruling other conditions out first is very important. In addition to clinical evaluation that will assess possible causes of your pain, your doctor may need to order blood work to determine

if you have:

• Anemia

• Hypothyroidism

• Lyme disease

• Other rheumatic diseases

• Hormonal imbalances

• Allergies and nutritional deficiencies

• Disorders that cause pain, fatigue, and other fibromyalgia-like symptoms.

 

If the tests show that you have 1 of these conditions, treatment will focus on treating that problem first. If your pain is caused by a muscle or joint condition, chiropractic care may help alleviate it more effectively than other therapies.

 

Treatment Alternatives

If no other cause for your symptoms can be identified, you may have classic fibromyalgia. The traditional allopathic approach includes a prescription of prednisone, anti-inflammatory agents, antidepressants, sleep medications, and muscle relaxants. These temporarily relieve the symptoms, but they do create side effects. If you prefer a natural approach, the following suggestions may be helpful:

 

 

• Studies have shown that a combination of 300 to 600 mg of magnesium per day, along with malic acid, may significantly reduce may significantly reduce the number of tender points and the pain felt at those that remain. B vitamins may also be helpful.

• Eating more omega-3 fatty acids and fewer saturated fats has shown promise in fibromyalgia patients. Limit red meat and saturated fats and increase the amounts of omega-3 fatty acids by including fish, flax, and walnut oils in your diet. Fatty acid deficiencies can interfere with the nervous system and brain function, resulting in depression and poor memory and concentration.

• Improving the quality of sleep can help reduce fatigue. Watch your caffeine intake, especially before going to bed. Reduce TV and computer time. If you watch TV in the evening, choose relaxing, funny programs instead of programs with violent or disturbing content. Ask your doctor of chiropractic for other natural ways to help you sleep better.

• Stress-managing strategies can also help address anxiety or depression issues. Cognitive therapy has been shown helpful in relieving fibromyalgia patients’ negative emotions and depression by changing their perception of themselves and attitudes toward others.

• A traditional gym-based or aerobic exercise program may exacerbate fibromyalgia symptoms and is not recommended. Instead, yoga, Pilates, or tai chi—which offer mild stretching, relaxation, and breathing techniques—may work better than vigorous exercise.

• Studies have shown that acupuncture is another effective, conservative approach to treating fibromyalgia symptoms and many doctors of chiropractic offer this service right in their offices.

• Chiropractic care has consistently ranked as one of the therapeutic approaches that offer the most relief for the fibromyalgia patient.

 

 

Your doctor of chiropractic can also include massage therapy, ultrasound and electrical stimulation in the treatment program, which may help relieve stress, pain, and other symptoms.     Your doctor of chiropractic has the knowledge, training, and expertise to help you understand your problem and, in many cases, to manage it successfully. Remember, however, that the treatment program can be successful only with your active participation. If your doctor of chiropractic feels that he or she cannot help you, you will be directed to another health care provider.

During menstruation, many  women suffer from painful menstrual cycles and also have uterine pain while and after menstruation. These cramps are also called dysmenorrhea. Menstruation is marked by a sharp pain along with nausea, headache, digestive problems and lower back pain.

Side Effects of Prescription Medications for Dysmenorrhea

At times, women are prescribed birth control formulations which are made especially for those who have very painful menstrual cycles. Although there has been no concrete proof of link between breast cancer and oral contraceptives but it does lead to other problems like blood clots in the legs, brain, heart and lungs, heart attack and immune system suppression.

Usually, Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs are used to fight the pain that is caused by cramps.

Usually, Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs are used to fight the pain that is caused by cramps. Although medicines
eir use for long time can result in gastrointestinal problems like bleeding and gastric ulcers. There can also be an increase in the chances of heart attack.

Chiropractic Treatments for Dysmenorrhea

In order to function in a proper manner, female sexual organs just like other organs of the body needs nerve supply from the spine. It so happens that many women who suffer from menstrual cycles have back pain or neck pain generally. Chiropractic adjustments help women in getting relief from these problems and the advantages are many.

Chiropractic help makes sure that the connection between the spinal column and sexual organ is a proper one. This method of treatment has helped many women who were suffering from the problem of painful menstrual cycles. Vertebral subluxation is a condition in which the person has a misaligned spine and that interferes with the nervous system and results in reduced health. Chiropractors assist in fixing these vertebral subluxations so that the pain is decreased and hence you get a permanent solution to your problem. It is a natural method of treatment and therefore does not have any kind of side effects.

Spinal realignment can also help in treating other conditions that are related to reproductive health. Women who go through various hormonal changes and conditions like menopause symptoms which include hot flashes, depression, headaches, irritability, back and joint pain and fatigue can get the advantage of chiropractic treatment. So, if you are suffering from painful menstrual cycles, then you should consult your chiropractor soon.

Chicken Noodle Soup:
Grandma was right — nothing beats chicken soup for fending off sniffles. Not only does it provide the fluids needed to help fight off viruses, it’s a powerful mucus stimulant so it helps clear nasal congestion as well as thin mucus. It’s also thought to have a mild anti-inflammatory effect than can help ease cold symptoms. Keep some organic chicken stock on hand.

Onion And Garlic:
If you want to punch up the healing power of your chicken soup — or any other dish — add plenty of garlic and onions. When combined, these flavorful healers contain numerous antiseptic and immunity boosting compounds. As an added plus, garlic helps to open clogged sinuses.

Mushrooms:
No herbal medicine cabinet should be without mushrooms. They increase the production of cytokines, which are cells that help fight off infection. They also contain polysaccharides, which are compounds that support the immune system. The most potent cold- and flu-fighting shrooms are shitake, maitake and reishi.

Citrus Fruits:
Citrus fruits contain large doses of powerhouse vitamin C. Studies have found that this antioxidant can reduce cold symptoms by 23 per cent, and all that’s needed is just one to eight grams (1,000 to 8,000 milligrams) to do the trick. Besides citrus fruits, other foods that have high amounts of vitamin C include papaya, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, tomatoes, broccoli, brussel sprouts and red bell peppers.

Yogurt:
Studies have shown that eating a cup of low-fat yogurt each day can reduce your susceptibility to colds by 25 percent. The beneficial bacteria is Lactobacillus reuteri which has been found to block the replication of viruses that invade the body when we get sick. Not all brands have that particular bacteria, so check labels and be sure to go organic.

Hot Tea:
Hot tea is soothing and a great home remedy, helping to thin mucus and ensure proper hydration. For added health benefit, sip green or black tea — both are filled with flavonoids, which are potent antioxidants.

Ginger:
Ginger comes to the aid when we’re sick in some powerful ways. Besides soothing a scratchy throat, it has chemicals called sesquiterpenes that target rhinoviruses — which are the most common family of cold viruses — as well as substances that help suppress coughing. Ginger is also a natural pain and fever reducer and a mild sedative so you will feel more comfortable and be able to rest easier. Add a couple of tablespoons of shredded gingerroot to your tea, or make ginger tea (it comes in tea bags, but you can also simmer fresh sliced ginger to make a potent brew).

Honey:
Honey has numerous medicinal properties and because it coats your throat it is a natural way to soothe sore throats. It also has antioxidant and antimicrobial properties to help fight infections from viruses, bacteria, and fungi. Skip the common clover honey that you’ll find in the supermarket as it has the lowest antioxidant level. Look for buckwheat honey, which has the highest.

Black Pepper:
It’s ironic that black pepper — the spice best known for making you sneeze — can ward off the sniffles. Black peppercorns are high in piperine, a compound known for its anti-fever and pain-relieving qualities.

Spices:
Make recipes more flavorful with garlic, thyme, rosemary, sage and oregano — while spicing things up, you’ll also get an added kick of immune-busters, too.

Some people wonder why more and more parents are taking their children to see chiropractors. The answer is simple: whether we have a large spine or a tiny  one, if the spine is negatively impacting the communication of the nervous system then our body is unable regulate and co-ordinate itself correctly…

 

 

The nervous system is the ‘Master Controller’
The nervous system is the master controller of our body and if its communication channels become fuzzy, distorted or damaged then we may experience all sorts of communication errors. For babies this ineffective communication may play out as colic or irritability, an inability to suckle and breastfeed or poor sleep habits. For a child poor nerve communication may result in developmental delays, an inability to concentrate, behavioral problems, digestive issues, asthma, headaches – the list is endless.

 

 

Nerve irritations (or vertebral subluxations) occur as a part of normal daily life. They may result from physical, chemical and emotional stressors or ‘insults’ to our health, such as bad posture, prolonged postures, sleeping on our stomachs, knocks and falls, poor food choices, dehydration, exposure to chemicals and toxins, and stress and anxiety.

 

 

Some research suggests that even before these lifestyle stressors have an impact, nerve irritation may occur in the uterus from awkward positioning, restriction of movement in the womb and exposure to toxins. Subluxations or nerve irritation may also occur from birth complications such as long labours, very fast labours, or forceps or cesarean delivery.

 

Babies can be checked by chiropractors very soon after birth and special techniques have been developed to carefully correct any subluxated areas. When we appreciate how the nervous system may be hindered and impaired it makes sense why more parents are having their child’s spine and nervous system assessed.

 

 

10 reasons parents take their children to see a chiropractor:
1.  To encourage good brain development.
2.  To support “first-class” nerve communication throughout the body to promoting health and well-being.
3.  To help strengthen their child’s immunity – encouraging fewer colds, ear-aches and general illness.
4.  To help resolve breastfeeding issues and colic.
5.  To reduce the detrimental impact our modern world has on our children’s health.
6.  Encourages children to thrive by supporting digestive strength.
7.  To diminish nerve interference which may impact their child’s capacity to learn and concentrate.
8.  To promote body balance – helping to resolve poor posture, asthma, allergies and bed-wetting..
9.  To help kids stay fun and light hearted.
10.  To help kids stay in tip-top shape.

 

Your child’s health is their greatest asset and yes while more research into the benefits of chiropractic for babies and children is needed, chiropractic for little people has been shown to be gentle, safe and effective.  When combined with a healthy lifestyle, chiropractic is a true wellness enabler. Ask around and you will find that parents frequently report chiropractic helps their children stay in tip-top shape.

One of the secrets of effective stress management at work is finding ways to incorporate a variety of stress-reduction techniques into your workday. By using these methods on a regular basis you can catch your stress early before it catches up to you.

 

•Move around: Get up and walk away from your desk — have some coffee or water, make copies. Walk around a lot, and at lunch be sure to get out of the office and take a quick stroll.

 

 

Stretch and reach for the sky: For many people, your days are characterized by long periods of sitting at a desk or stuck in a cramped work area, broken only by trips to the coffee or copy machine. Other people are on their feet all day. In either case, stretching is a great way of releasing any tension that has accumulated in your muscles.

 

 

Soothe yourself with sound: If you can orchestrate it, listening to calming music at your work site can unruffle your feathers. A radio, tape or CD player, and some appropriate music can be very relaxing. Classical music, especially Bach and Mozart, works nicely. If these composers are too highbrow, try one of the “lite” radio stations. Just keep the volume down, or use a headset.

 

 

Lighten up: The right lighting in your workspace can reduce eyestrain and make a more pleasant place to work. Go for soft and indirect lighting. Just make sure you have enough light.

 

 

Create visual resting spots: Give your eyes — and your mind — a break with photos, artwork, or a plant. At regular intervals, look away from your computer screen or paperwork and focus on a distant object to “stretch your eyes.”

 

 

Organize your desk: How can a neater desk reduce stress? Well, because the source of many types of stress comes from a feeling of being out of control, of being overwhelmed. When your work area looks like a battlefield, you feel the tension growing. And when you can’t find that item you are looking for, your stress level soars even higher. By organizing your files and piles, you get a sense that there is some order in all the chaos.

 

 

Become EC (ergonomically correct): Your desk or workspace can cause stress for other reasons besides disorganization. The problem is, your body was not designed to sit and work in one place for long periods of time. When you sit in a stationary position for long periods of time, your muscle groups contract. The blood flow to these muscles may become reduced, resulting in oxygen-deprived muscles. This can lead to pain, strain, muscle aches, and fatigue.

 

 

Nourish your body (and spirit): What goes into your mouth from 9 to 5 (or from 8 to 7) can make a big difference in your stress level. Eating the wrong foods, or even eating the right foods, but in the wrong amounts, and/or at the wrong times can make it harder for you to cope with the stress in your life.

 

When you eat poorly, your body doesn’t work as efficiently as it should. This means that you’re not in the best position to handle all the pressures and demands you must face at work.

 

 

Work it out: If you can swing it, one of the better things to do on your lunch break is to hit the gym or health club. Many clubs and gyms are conveniently located near work sites. A number of exercise facilities may even offer you a corporate discount for joining. Better yet, many companies and organizations have workout facilities right on their premises. Work up a sweat, take a shower, and then have a quick but nourishing bite to eat.Are you experiencing stress at work?

How Can Chiropractic Help With Colds and Flu?

Chiropractic doesn’t “treat” cold or flu; chiropractic promotes improved body function which creates a higher natural resistance. Natural resistance is the only reason why your cold “goes away” rather than lasting for weeks, months or your entire lifetime!

 

How do chiropractors help increase your natural resistance to disease? By removing a serious interference to your proper body function: vertebral subluxations.

 

What Are Vertebral Subluxations?

Vertebral subluxations are misaligned vertebrae in your spine that interfere with your nerves and the flow of information and energy between your brain and the rest of your body. Vertebral subluxations will lower your natural resistance to disease by unbalancing your nervous system. You may have a subluxation and never know it.

 

Chiropractors Adjust Subluxations

Chiropractors perform spinal examinations to detect and locate vertebral subluxations in your body, then correct them by giving chiropractic spinal adjustments. This minimizes or relieves your spinal nerve stress and helps restore better body functioning for higher resistance to disease, which, we cannot overstate, is the best defense against the common cold.

 

Taking Aspirin Or Acetaminophen May Prolong The Flu

Researchers from the University of Maryland studied 120 volunteers who had experimentally induced flu infection. They found that the duration of the illness was longer if the volunteers’ fever was reduced with aspirin or acetaminophen (tylenol). Those patients stayed sick on average 3 ½ days longer than those not given the drugs to lower fever. Why? Fever is an important mechanism by which your body fights infection. By interfering with “mother nature” and artificially lowering fever, we are preventing our “inner doctor” from functioning to heal us.

 

What should I do if I get a Cold or Flu?
Get adjusted. Studies show a 200% improvement in immune system function after a chiropractic adjustment?
Rest. All of your body’s healing happens when you sleep.
Get plenty of fluids.
Respect your body’s own ability to heal itself. All of the symptoms you are experiencing (the fever, runny nose, coughing…) are your body’s own built in mechanisms for healing. Don’t suppress it. Support it and let it do it’s job

If your mom was anything like mine, I’m sure you have the good old “stop slouching” or “sit up straight”.  It drove me nuts when she would say this.  Turns out…mom was right and here is why.

 

Good Posture:

  • Keeps bones and joints in the correct alignment so that muscles are being used properly.
  • Helps decrease the abnormal wearing of joint surfaces.
  • Decreases the stress on the ligaments holding the joints of the spine together.
  • Prevents the spine from becoming fixed in abnormal positions.
  • Prevents fatigue because muscles are being used more efficiently, allowing the body to use less energy.
  • Prevents backache and muscular pain.
  • Contributes to a good appearance.

 

To Achieve Good Posture You Will Require The Following:

    • Good muscle flexibility
    • Normal motion in the joints
    • Strong postural muscles
    • A balance of muscles on both sides of the spine

 

  • Awareness of your own posture, plus awareness of proper posture which leads to conscious correction.

With practise, the correct posture for standing, sitting, and lying down (as described below) will gradually replace your old posture.

 

Here Are Some Tips To Help You Improve Your Posture
Take a break from sitting
Exercise regularly
Keep your shoulders back and try to relax
Slightly bend your knees to ease the pressure off your hips
Keep your head straight, not up or down
Regular stretching
Lift from your knees
When sleeping, use a mattress use a mattress that has a firm support

Studies have shown that forwardhead posture, rounded shoulders, and gait imbalance increase when students wear backpacks that are greater than 15 percent of their body weight. These posture issues tend to be higher in children and pre-teens. Improper backpack use can also lead to the development of bad postural habits during childhood that can continue for a lifetime. For all of these reasons, it’s important to choose a backpack carefully and to teach your child to wear it properly.
 

The following tips are recommended for safe backpack use
 

Wear both straps.
This will evenly distributes the weight of the backpack and promotes more symmetrical alignment.
 

Wear the backpack over the midback.
The muscles of the midback are strongest and best able to support a heavy load. Never let a backpack extend below the lower back, regardless of what fashion dictates!
 

Lighten the load.
Keep the back pack at 10 to 15 percent or less of your child’s body weight. Only those items required for the day should be included in the pack.
 

Size.
The larger a backpack is, the greater the chance for filling it up! And heavy backpacks cause muscle fatigue and soreness. Choose a size that is adequate for the amount of books—but no larger.
 

Padded back and straps.
This will reduce pressure on the back and shoulders and improve comfort.
 

Multiple compartments.
These are helpful in distributing the load evenly throughout the backpack.
 

Extra hip and chest straps.
These straps can distribute the weight to the trunk and hips.
 

There are a number of signs that your child’s backpack may be too heavy or is being used incorrectly. These signs include red marks across the shoulders, postural changes, difficulty putting on and taking off the backpack, tingling in arms and hands, or general aches and pains in the back, neck, or shoulders. Check in with your child to see if the backpack is causing pain!

The time has come to start cleaning out book bags, shopping for new notebooks, and picking out that first day of school outfit. But how do you get the kids to transition from swim suits and flip flops to 3-ring binders and pencil cases? Here are 5 tips to help your kids get back into school mode.

 

1. Pick up a book.

If your kids have not been reading all summer, now is the time to crack open a book and get back into reading. Even if they only read a few pages each day, it will make the transition back to school that much smoother if their brains area already starting to churn.

 

2. Get them to bed earlier.
The longer and lazier days of summer usually mean later bedtimes for many kids. Make the first days and weeks of school a little easier but moving bedtime a little earlier each night until it’s closer to the school time schedule.

 

3. Check out your child’s school supply list.
The sooner you can find out what school supplies your child will need, the more time you will have to look through your current stash and recycle or reuse what you’ve got. Now is the time to catch the deals too for school supplies that you need to purchase.

 

4. Make time for meal time.
If your kids have gotten used to grazing all summer long, now is a good time to reinforce the meal and snack times they will have at school. Kids might eat lunch at 10:30 or at 1:30 and it will help keep the growls at bay if you make the transition before the first day.

 

5. Get organized.
If you have a hard time with this one – trust me, I feel your pain. But trust me too when I tell you that the more organized you are now, the better off your child’s first few weeks of school will be. Make a place for your kids to stash book bags, a spot for important papers, and a calendar for everyone to write and keep track of important dates.

Alternative Pet Pain Therapies

 

Animal Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care is an alternative to drug therapy for suffering pets, and a form of preventative health care for well pets too. Treatment works by restoring the joints and spine to normal alignment and function. This alignment helps re-establish the body’s signals through the nervous system, eliminates stress to joints, and corrects displacement of the vertebra for more flexibility and proper movement.

 

The word “chiropractic” derives from the Greek language and means “to practice with the hands.” Chiropractors use their hands to apply an adjustment, which is a specific and gentle correction, to the affected joint. Most animals enjoy being adjusted and are relaxed during the treatment. After being adjusted, many owners report that their pet takes a nice long nap and then is more energetic and active!

 

Pets that Benefit from Chiropractic
All animals can benefit from chiropractic care. Common reasons that pets are seen for chiropractic treatments include:
• Sore pets — Those with symptoms of pain, such as limping, difficulty in climbing or jumping, favoring a leg or side of the body, moaning when attempting to move, and recoiling from touch
• Seniors — Older pets with stiff joints or age-related diseases such as arthritis
• Athletes — Working or competitive animals striving to maintain optimum condition
• Obese pets — Combined with an exercise and nutritional plan, these chiropractic patients are more comfortable while being restored to overall health and mobility
• Post-surgical pets — Combined with physical therapy and rehabilitation procedures, chiropractic is an effective way to promote a quick and full recovery

 

In addition, certain skin conditions, urinary problems, intestinal issues, and behavioral concerns related to pain may be improved or eliminated through chiropractic care.

HOW DOES the PROADJUSTER’S ANALYSIS WORK?

 

The PROADJUSTER is the most advanced Chiropractic analysis and treatment instrument in existence today. This technological marvel can help you return to a healthier lifestyle where you may no longer have to live with a persistent painful condition. Let us HELP YOU!

 

STAGES OF CARE:

 

FIRST our doctors will engage in a one-on-one conversation with you to determine your medical history, and the causes of your problem so that the adjustment and treatment procedures can then be customized to fit the patient’s needs.

 

PINPOINT ANALYSIS BY THE PROADJUSTER

 

The next step in evaluation and treatment is to use the ProAdjuster’s sophisticated computer analysis to pinpoint the problem areas. The instrument introduces a small mechanical force into the body and measures the response through a system of sensors and software. The waveform that is produced when the technology is employed is similiar to a fingerprint of the material being tested. The information is then charted graphically on a computer, so your doctor can find and keep track the problem areas on each and every visit. Now that’s putting analysis on a whole new level!

 

GETTING THE PERFECT ADJUSTMENT

 

Your doctor will then begin treatment with the PROADJUSTER by applying Resonant Force Impulses precisely to the affected areas. You will receive gentle, effective treatment to that area reducing the subluxation. This will relieve the pressure on the nerve, allow the nerve to heal and restore the nerve’s ability to freely transmit signals to the brain. In addition, your doctor may again take readings after the adjustment to compare results.

 

COMBINE TRADITON WITH TECHNOLOGY

 

When a Chiropractor palpates your spine, they are checking for joint fluidity, motion and or rigidity. Improper motion effecting the nerve function is called a subluxation. In a similar fashion to palpation, the PROADJUSTER can determine whether the vertebra motion is too rigid or too fluid. However, instead of using the doctor’s judgment as to what areas are hyper-mobile or hypo-mobile, the PROADJUSTER measures exact levels of motion. Therefore, it can isolate a problem faster and more accurately than manual procedures. And most importantly, it will help relieve the pain!

What exactly are the benefits of receiving massage therapy?   Useful for all of the conditions listed below and more, massage can: •Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion. •Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body’s natural defense system. •Improve the condition of the body’s largest organ—the skin. •Increase joint flexibility. •Lessen depression and anxiety. •Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation. •Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles. •Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller. •Relieve migraine pain.   There is no denying  massage therapy can be a powerful benifit in your healthcare regimen.  Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related and nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress. This leads to: •Decreased anxiety. •Enhanced sleep quality. •Greater energy. •Improved concentration. •Reduced fatigue.   In addition, clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage. The emotional balance massage provides can often be just as valuable as the physical benefits. In response to massage, specific physiological and chemical changes flow throughout the body, with profound effects. Research shows that with massage: •Arthritis sufferers note fewer aches and less stiffness and pain. •Asthmatic children show better pulmonary function •Burn injury patients report reduced pain, itching, and anxiety. •High blood pressure patients demonstrate lower diastolic blood pressure, anxiety, and stress hormones. •Preterm infants have improved weight gain.   Research continues to show the enormous benefits of touch—which range from treating chronic diseases, neurological disorders, and injuries, to alleviating the tensions of modern lifestyles. Getting a massage can do you a world of good.  Going for massage at consistent intervals is truly an investment in your health. And remember: just because massage feels like a pampering treat doesn’t mean it is any less therapeutic. Consider massage appointments a necessary piece of your health and wellness plan, and work with your practitioner to establish a treatment schedule that best meets your needs.   Are you interested in experiencing the many benefits of massage?  Come into SpineWise Bowmanville to enjoy a massage with one of our Registered Massage Therapists.  Call us at 905-623-8388

  • The effectiveness of mainstream medications like antidepressants should not be undermined. Advocates of alternative treatments do not suggest that someone suffering from depression should avoid mainstream mental health treatments. But when medication or counseling sessions cannot make you feel better, it might be time to try another approach. According to “Insight,” an online wellness journal, chronic pain can cause severe anxiety and depressive symptoms, and depression and anxiety often target the spine, causing muscle tension, headaches, migraines and neck and back pain. This creates a painful cycle where physical pain and mental/emotional pain feed off each other. If these symptoms sound familiar, chiropractic treatments for depression might help you.

    Chiropractors can isolate the pain and, once it is alleviated, individuals will most likely start to feel invigorated.

     

Relaxation and Relief

  • Successful relief of depressive symptoms like lack of energy, extreme sadness, low self-esteem and rumination can often be alleviated through positive and therapeutic touch, attention and human interaction–all administered in chiropractics. Although many people diagnosed with severe anxiety disorders or major depressive disorder have little chance of emerging from muscular-skeletal stimulation symptom free, people suffering from minor depressive symptoms due to chronic pain will likely benefit. Chiropractic care allows patients to enter deep relaxation while experiencing tension relief. This, along with simple human contact, has brought successful outcomes for many people.

    Psychological and social issues can amplify chronic pain, and vice versa, according to the American Chiropractic Association. Scientific evidence suggests that nerves in the spinal cord of chronic pain patients undergo structural changes, which in turn, can transfer into emotional changes as well.

lose access pounds

Many health risks come along with being overweight such as an increased chance for heart disease and diabetes. Even with all the advances in modern weight loss programs it is still difficult for most people to lose the weight and keep it off. High failure rates have prompted many doctors to recommend an overall approach which includes the use of chiropractic care. The following are a few facts to consider when seeking chiropractic care.

Why Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care is a drug free way that you can start to heal your body after years of carrying around excess weight. Chiropractic care is much more that fixing backaches, the care promotes personal health and overall well-being of the patient. The chiropractor will teach techniques to help the patient improve posture, improving pain levels and overall mobility.

Connection of the Body and Brain

The brain is the command center that tells nerves and muscles how to function. If the center is interrupted by things such as muscle strains, the body will not be able to operate to its full ability. Chiropractors generally focus on nerves that control you muscles in your back, legs or neck. Having your back or neck out of line will affect the nerves therefore robbing you of your mobility. Being able to have your bones realigned will allow the nerves to function properly and permit your body to begin healing itself.

Weight Loss

When you choose to start losing weight you should allow the chiropractor to adjust you so that you can remove whatever pain you have from carrying around excess weight. As you continue your journey it will become increasingly important to continue seeing the chiropractor. As you continue to lose weight the body’s center of gravity drastically changes putting more pressure on different spots of your body. This pressure causes pain and discomfort but more than likely can be helped with chiropractic adjustments. Increasing your physical activity when exercising will also cause soreness or stiffness that can be helped by your chiropractic team.

Are you having difficulty shedding those few extra pounds because your aches and pains are holding you back?  Call SpineWise in Bowmanville at (905) 623-8388 to visit the top Chiropractor in Bowmanville.

 

Any parent who has witnessed the sadness and disappointment of their 8 year old child turning down a sleepover due to persistent bedwetting understands the pain and shame the child feels. Parents try everything from waking their child during the night to the good old fashioned restricting fluids at night with no results; most parents don’t even consider chiropractic care.

Chiropractors don’t claim to treat bedwetting. However, they do know that there is a good chance that chiropractic can help stop bedwetting, or at least reduce the frequency of “wet” nights, if the bedwetting is related to a spinal misalignment.

Several research studies have explored the effectiveness of chiropractic adjustments on bedwetters. In one such study, 25 % of children who received chiropractic adjustments experienced a 50 % or higher reduction in the number of wet nights. None of the children in the control group experienced this same result.

Any person of any age can experience bedwetting and although chiropractors do not claim to cure bedwetting, the studies are beginning to show that it may actually be worth trying.

Do you have a child that is having bedwetting problems?  Call SpineWise in Bowmanville at (905) 623-8388 to visit the top Chiropractor in Bowmanville.

If you are a new Chiropractic patient or considering becoming one you probably wondering What Does a Chiropractor Do?
To answer the question, what does a chiropractor do, would be almost impossible in just one sentence because a chiropractor does all kinds of things. The best way to begin to answer your question is to explain to you what chiropractics are all about to begin with so that you can better understand just what it is that a chiropractor actually does.

Chiropractic is the art of diagnosing, treating and preventing health problems through the proper alignment of the spinal column. Your spinal column houses your central nervous system and at the top of the spine is your brain. It is the nervous system that controls every cell in your body, by keeping it properly aligned a chiropractor is able to improve your overall health—not just back pain, Which has been the common misconception. The way that chiropractors achieve this proper alignment is through the use of specific chiropractic adjustments and manipulations that are painless which they have learned through many years of post secondary education.

A chiropractor is able to alleviate pain in joints and muscles as well as a variety of other complaints, such as headaches, cramping, discomfort related to menstruation and giving birth, sports injuries and much more. Having a poorly aligned spinal column can result in many different medical problems and a chiropractor can treat all of them. To do this they sometimes will use other methods and techniques along side of the chiropractic adjustments. The most commonly used are ART, which stands for Active Release Techniques. This is soft tissue manipulation. They may also use electronic muscle stimulation (think Dr. Ho and the machines he sells on his infomercial!). They may also use stretching techniques to help improve your range of motion so that you can get the most out of your treatment and even use the moves at home to speed things along.

A chiropractor can treat people of all ages from babies to seniors. They are also able to treat women who are pregnant. Since the adjustments impact the central nervous system by restoring it back to its intended alignment and function, chiropractors are able to treat conditions that most people don’t even realize. For instance, having your spine properly aligned can help with neurological issues as well as pain. In babies, a proper alignment of the spine helps to ensure better growth and development which results in less issues with colic, mobility problems and much more. A chiropractor can prevent many medical issues from developing and keep a person healthy overall.

All in all, when it comes to answering the question, what does a chiropractor do, it’s pretty safe to say that they do it all when it comes to your health—diagnosis, treatment and prevention. And they do it all without the use of medications and surgeries which is great news for everyone. Chiropractors can’t work miracles—no one can—but they are well trained professionals who can do wonders for your health as well as that of your loved ones.

9903944Acupuncture is a therapeutic intervention used to treat specific health dysfunctions (i.e., musculoskeletal pain and movement disorders, sports injuries, functional problems, problems of dysregulation, headaches, stress-related disorders, chronic pain, etc.).What is Contemporary Medical Acupuncture (CMA)?
CMA is a precise peripheral nerve stimulation technique, in which fine solid needles (acupuncture needles) are inserted into anatomically defined neurofunctional sites, and stimulated manually or with electricity for the therapeutic purpose of modulating abnormal activity of the nervous system and/or the endocrine, exocrine and immune systems. It is used in pain syndromes, functional problems, and any diseases in which these modulatory mechanisms are available. Medical acupuncture works to modulate the pain and sensory signals throughout the body. During treatments, the body’s natural pain relieving chemicals are released to improve the biochemical balance in the body while promoting healing.

fastingA person’s entire immune system can be rejuvenated by fasting for as little as three days as it triggers the body to start producing new white blood cells, a study suggests. Fasting for as little as three days can regenerate the entire immune system, even in the elderly, scientists have found in a breakthrough described as “remarkable”. Although fasting diets have been criticised by nutritionists for being unhealthy, new research suggests starving the body kick-starts stem cells into producing new white blood cells, which fight off infection. Scientists at the University of Southern California say the discovery could be particularly beneficial for people suffering from damaged immune systems, such as cancer patients on chemotherapy. It could also help the elderly whose immune system becomes less effective as they age, making it harder for them to fight off even common diseases. The researchers say fasting “flips a regenerative switch” which prompts stem cells to create brand new white blood cells, essentially regenerating the entire immune system “It gives the ‘OK’ for stem cells to go ahead and begin proliferating and rebuild the entire system,” said Prof Valter Longo, Professor of Gerontology and the Biological Sciences at the University of California. “And the good news is that the body got rid of the parts of the system that might be damaged or old, the inefficient parts, during the fasting. “Now, if you start with a system heavily damaged by chemotherapy or ageing, fasting cycles can generate, literally, a new immune system.” Prolonged fasting forces the body to use stores of glucose and fat but also breaks down a significant portion of white blood cells. During each cycle of fasting, this depletion of white blood cells induces changes that trigger stem cell-based regeneration of new immune system cells. In trials humans were asked to regularly fast for between two and four days over a six-month period. Scientists found that prolonged fasting also reduced the enzyme PKA, which is linked to ageing and a hormone which increases cancer risk and tumour growth. “We could not predict that prolonged fasting would have such a remarkable effect in promoting stem cell-based regeneration of the hematopoietic system,” added Prof Longo. “When you starve, the system tries to save energy, and one of the things it can do to save energy is to recycle a lot of the immune cells that are not needed, especially those that may be damaged,” Dr Longo said. “What we started noticing in both our human work and animal work is that the white blood cell count goes down with prolonged fasting. Then when you re-feed, the blood cells come back. So we started thinking, well, where does it come from?” Fasting for 72 hours also protected cancer patients against the toxic impact of chemotherapy. “While chemotherapy saves lives, it causes significant collateral damage to the immune system. The results of this study suggest that fasting may mitigate some of the harmful effects of chemotherapy,” said co-author Tanya Dorff, assistant professor of clinical medicine at the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center and Hospital. “More clinical studies are needed, and any such dietary intervention should be undertaken only under the guidance of a physician.” “We are investigating the possibility that these effects are applicable to many different systems and organs, not just the immune system,” added Prof Longo. However, some British experts were sceptical of the research. Dr Graham Rook, emeritus professor of immunology at University College London, said the study sounded “improbable”. Chris Mason, Professor of Regenerative Medicine at UCL, said: “There is some interesting data here. It sees that fasting reduces the number and size of cells and then re-feeding at 72 hours saw a rebound. “That could be potentially useful because that is not such a long time that it would be terribly harmful to someone with cancer. “But I think the most sensible way forward would be to synthesize this effect with drugs. I am not sure fasting is the best idea. People are better eating on a regular basis.” Dr Longo added: “There is no evidence at all that fasting would be dangerous while there is strong evidence that it is beneficial. “I have received emails from hundreds of cancer patients who have combined chemo with fasting, many with the assistance of the oncologists. “Thus far the great majority have reported doing very well and only a few have reported some side effects including fainting and a temporary increase in liver markers. Clearly we need to finish the clinical trials, but it looks very promising.”



What causes headaches?

Headaches can be triggered by excessive drinking or smoking, eye strain, poor diet, poor lighting, excessive noise, infection, and others. Very often, the problem lies in the spine. Either the vertebrae aren’t moving properly or misaligned, or muscle tension in the neck is pushing on the nerves.

 

How can we help you?

Our chiropractors at SpineWise are trained in noticing spinal problems through posture, movement, and curvature, and they are experienced in finding the best solution for your headaches. Chiropractic care can relieve tension, align problem vertebrae, and correct any problems found in your nerves, muscles, or bones which are lending to increased head pain.

What are the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

It is critical to begin treating early phases of carpal tunnel syndrome before the damage progresses. Knowing the signs of CTS can help you to heal it or control symptoms before they worsen

Carpal tunnel syndrome

How can Chiropractics benefit you?

Choosing to try chiropractic care for your symptoms could have a long-lasting effect on helping. Studies have shown that the majority of those who try chiropractic care for their carpal tunnel symptoms are helped, and that those benefits lasted around six months on average. So after your initial treatment program, you may only need twice a year maintenance visits to keep feeling better.

How can Massage Therapy benefit you?

The various types of massages  can relax the muscles and tissues in your hands and wrists as well as provide other more comprehensive benefits. A decrease in pain is the first and most obvious result of targeted massage, but massage can also help to strengthen the grip in the hand and provide a preventative approach to future flair ups. 

To Temporarily relieve pain on your own

To temporarily ease pain caused by this condition, keep the hand in a non-flexed position and avoid bending your wrist.  If the pain is persistent, apply an ice pack to the irritated area for intervals of 20 minutes with 30 minute breaks in between each application.

Regular Chiropractic visits

The every day stress of life can be just as damaging to the body in the long run as a one-time physical trauma. Stress literally wears on the body, affecting one’s balance, flexibility, and even the central nervous system. Having routine adjustments and massages can help erase every day tension and prevent more serious injuries. Simply visiting the chiropractor will help you feel less tense and have more energy on a daily basis.

The skeletal system is what supports the body and all of its movements. The spine is at the core of this support system, so it is essential that it stay properly aligned as much as possible. Improper body alignment can cause pain, chronic illness and more, which is why it is important to get regular chiropractic adjustments and massages before pain becomes an issue.

While many wait for a car accident or other trauma-related incident to first visit a chiropractor, many health insurance policies offer affordable coverage for chiropractic visits, regardless of physical trauma. Use your insurance benefits for wellness by taking care of your body’s core support system and you’ll start feeling better right away.



 

Regular visits to the chiropractor are also a good idea for active individuals. When the body is regularly functioning at a high level of activity, the risk of injury increases. Visit your chiropractor frequently to help keep your body limber, flexible, and free from pain.

There are a number of other conditions that can benefit from chiropractic care including:
carpal tunnel syndrome
sleep disorders
chronic pain
high blood pressure
arthritis
migraines
back and neck issues
tension disorders and more

 

Maintaining regularly scheduled chiropractic visits can noticeably increase your overall well-being and quality of life—take advantage of your medical insurance benefits for wellness and schedule an appointment today.

At SpineWise, every chiropractic appointment builds on the previous ones, allowing you to grow in health steadily and assuring your life-long well-being.  This helps you from growing too quickly and hurting something else, and also prevents relapse with your condition.

In order to build a stress-free environment, your appointments will be on time, open to discussion and questions, and always friendly.  If you find you have a new condition, or more questions for your chiropractor, you can always schedule more time!

Jaw Pain? We can help relieve your pain today!

 

Chiropractic treatment can greatly aid in treatment and relief of TMJ  (Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction Syndrome)

A person with such TMJ condition (also referred to as TMD or Jaw Pain) usually experiences different symptoms such as: grinding of the teeth, jaw joint pain, headaches, ringing in the ears, vertigo, neck / upper back / shoulder pain, balance or vision problems.

Chiropractic Treatment Options

Treatment for this condition can involve one or more of the following:

• Gentle adjustments and myofasical (muscle) work to reduce muscle spasm, nerve irritation and improve function in the jaw joint area.

• Corrected exercises and nutritional supplements to help speed joint recovery and improvement.

• Self help, nutritional and lifestyle changes given to the patient to help reduce stresses to the jaw area.

When treated early, this condition can be controlled and the potential damage to the teeth and jaw joint can be minimized.

When left untreated, jaw issues can erode the health of the teeth and jaw joint, prevent proper chewing, and cause bio mechanical problems to the jaw joint, the head and neck area.

Did you know that seeing a chiropractor on a regular basis can actually help you have a healthier and more comfortable pregnancy, labor and delivery!

Chiropractic-Care-For-Pregnancy

Our chiropractic care for pregnant women is completely safe, gentle, and can help you and your baby have a healthier delivery.  Our treatments make you more comfortable carrying a child in your third trimester and in a study done on women who received chiropractic care, it has been shown that their need for pain medication during delivery was half what other women were experiencing.

pregnancy

 

Many changes are made to a pregnant woman’s body in order to make an optimum environment for the growing child.  This includes changes to the mobility of her joints which in turn lends the spine to subluxations and herniated discs which can be very painful.  If subluxations are present before a woman is pregnant, than carrying a child can make it much worse.  A chiropractor can check to see if you have any conditions which would make pregnancy more painful as well as help you through any conditions during your pregnancy to ensure your health during this critical time in your life

To avoid picking up the germs from the last guests, bring antibacterial wipes with to wipe down the main germy culprits: remote control and TV. panel and the doorknobs.

Stay Fit: Too hot to exercise? Summer heat causes many to dump the workout routine until cooler weather comes. However that’s a month of fitness that your body needs! Instead, make the extra effort to change your routine- try an early morning run, an indoor exercise routine with a video and free weights or swimming a few times a week. Not only will you keep up your fitness goals and feel better; but the change in routine will use different muscles, making you stronger and healthier.

Food News: Another really good reason to cut back (or eliminate) soda consumption. Drinking soda wears off the enamel around the teeth. Permanently. University of Nebraska’s Dr. Kim McFarland shares her findings of the last 25 years, showing the disturbing evidence that both sugar and diet soda has the same influence on tooth enamel. “It can be more harmful than cavities because the damage causes tooth sensitivity…there is really nothing a dentist can do.”

Mentally Strong: In a long distance relationship and frustrated? According to the Journal of Communication, a new study shows that long distance couples can have more intimate relationships than people in relationships without the physical barriers. Drs. Jeffery Hancock and Crystal Jiang state that long distance couples make more of an effort to keep in touch with the frequency and variety of communication methods, increasing the bond despite the distance.
