Chiropractic Reduces Disability

Chiropractic Reduces Disability.  Did you know that disability due to back pain cost America over $234 billion in 2010.  This information comes from researchers who published the information in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Network Open.  In May of 2018, JAMA also published research showing that chiropractic had a huge impact on reducing disability due to back pain.

Chiropractic Reduces Disability.  When you factor in the growing opioid crisis in America, doctors are constantly looking for alternative ways to help their patients.  In particular, they are looking for solutions that are less addictive and have fewer side effects.  In fact, this concern prompted research into chiropractic treatment for back pain related disability.  However, before I reveal the research, did you know that one out of every five adults in the U.S. suffers from back pain?  As a result, it comes as no surprise that back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide.  Here’s what researchers discovered.

The Research

Chiropractic care in the study included spinal corrections to help restore proper bone position in the lower back.  In some cases, doctors also took care of other areas of the spine.  The study involved 750 patients.  Participants assigned to chiropractic care received an average of two to five visits, depending on their treatment facility.  After six weeks, people who received spinal corrections reported lower pain levels.  In fact, their disability scores were much lower than individuals who didn’t have spinal treatments. Furthermore, the patients receiving spinal corrections continued to improvement after 12 weeks.

Why It Works.

Spinal corrections help heal tissues in your body that form as a result of injury.  As a result, this type of care reduces pain and improves your body’s ability to move correctly.  This information comes from the lead author, Dr. Christine Goertz.  Dr. Goertz is responsible for the research.

It is also possible that spinal corrections help your body changes the way your brain handles pain.  As a result, you feel less pain from muscle strain, inflammation and/or spasm in the muscles next to your spine, according to the lead author.  JAMA published the research in May of 2018.

Obesity Causes Low Back Pain

Obesity Causes Low Back Pain.  While this fact seems quite obvious, research published in 2018 actually backs up this claim.  With obesity on the rise, paired with an out of control opioid epidemic, America needs a safe drug-free alternative.  Fortunately, spinal adjustments and enzyme nutrition can help.

Obesity Causes Low Back Pain.  Obesity is on the rise in the United States.  Sadly, its growth continues to increase at an alarming rate.  Unfortunately, so is our opioid crisis.  Is there a connection?  As a matter of fact, research from 2018 shows a clear connection between back pain and obesity.  If this pain gets bad enough, some sufferers may turn to opioid medication for pain relief.  However, there is another solution.

In May of 2018, JMPT published research demonstrating the connection between obesity and low back pain.  In fact, the study concluded the following.  “Overweight and obesity were associated with increased odds of low back pain.”

Unfortunately, this can create a viscous cycle.  Sadly, as you gain wait, you feel more pain.  To make matters worse, as you feel more pain, you exercise less because of that pain.  As time goes on, the cycle continues until it spins out of control. Later on in life, you go to the doctor only to find out you’re suffering from all of the complications obesity causes.  These problems include diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and many more.  Conversely, the key is to take care of this problem long before these problems arise.

The Safe and Natural Approach

Just how do we take care of this problem safely and naturally?  In our office, we use a combination of traditional or low-force chiropractic care, enzyme nutrition, dietary changes and custom tailored exercise program.  First, the right specific spinal corrections can relieve your low back pain allowing you to exercise.  In fact, spinal adjustments can even improve your athletic performance.  Did you know that research from the Journal of the American Medical Association reports that chiropractic is more effective than medicine at treating pain.  On top of that, the right dietary changes paired with the right enzyme supplements can help your body properly eliminate chronic inflammation.  This is the leading cause of obesity.  Lastly, other enzymes can even help your body break down fat properly.

If You’re Concerned

Are you overweight and suffer from back pain, we may be able to help without drugs or surgery.  If that sounds good, you can contact us one of several ways to set up a consultation. You can reach us on the web, stop by our office in Redmond, WA, or call us at 425-868-0120.  Then I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life. I will even do some preliminary testing as well as Bio Impedance Analysis (BIA). In fact, did you know that both NASA and Cancer Treatment Centers of America rely on BIA? These tests help me determine if you are a good candidate for care. If you’re not, we’ll make every effort to provide the proper referral.

Healing Takes Time

Healing Takes Time.  You’re driving down the road.  All of a sudden, the check engine light comes on.  Of course, the first thing you do is make sure you can make it home.  Or, perhaps you pull over and find a mechanic nearby.  Alternatively, you may even call a tow truck.  Would you think of disabling the check engine light?  Of course not.  However, many Americans like you take this approach every day with your health.

Healing Takes Time.  All too often, a relatively new patient leaves my office because “they’re not getting better fast enough.”  Many times, this is usually after only one or two visits.  Additionally, it doesn’t seem to matter if the patient came for chiropractic care, enzyme nutrition, or even both.  Instead, they will often seek pain medication from their primary care physician.  While this medication has its place, it only covers the symptoms.  Sadly, it provides no healing whatsoever.  In fact, let me give you an example.

Let’s say you’re driving in your care.  All of a sudden, the check engine light comes on, and perhaps your car’s computer chimes that there’s something wrong.  Once this happens, what’s the first thing on your mind?  In fact, how many of you think of disabling the light and the chime as a solution?  Conversely, how many of you start to think about getting to the nearest repair shop?

Disabling the “Check Engine Light” in our Body

Sadly, many Americans take the first approach when it comes to our health.  Instead of trying to fix the underlying cause, many Americans cover up the cause with pain medications.  Unfortunately, that’s just like disabling the “check engine” light in your car.  In a society focused on instant satisfaction, few realize that healing the underlying cause actually takes time.  Unfortunately, few even “pop the hood” to see what’s wrong.  In fact, this is why the opioid epidemic is such a problem in America.

Before I continue, I do understand that there’s a fundamental difference between your car and your body.  Your body hurts and your car doesn’t.  In fact, your body still needs sleep so you can heal.  Furthermore, you can’t sleep if you’re in pain.  As a result, pain medication has its place for short term relief.  Meanwhile, it’s just as important to find and treat the underlying cause of the problem while you’re dealing with the symptom.  However, this healing takes time, and we live in a society that is not willing to wait.

How Long Does it Take?

If healing takes time, just how long does it take?  The medical community will tell you four to six weeks for one condition, six to eight weeks for some other condition etc.  In fact, here’s a list.  However, you need to remember these are AVERAGES.  These figures do not consider the key factors.  In fact, here they are.  How long has the problem been there?  The longer you suffer from the problem the longer it takes to heal.  Secondly, how severe is the problem.  Once again, the greater the severity, the longer it takes.  Lastly, how old is the patient?  Let’s face it, as we age, our ability to heal declines.  This can also impact the healing process.

Teamwork for a Complete Approach

At Redmond Ridge Nutrition & Chiropractic we can work alongside your medical staff.  While they are providing you with immediate relief, we can help your body heal itself properly from the stress that caused the problem.  Our doctor has several possible solutions.  We can use low force or traditional chiropractic care to help your bones muscles and nerves work properly, and heal from injury.  Additionally, we will provide customized rehabilitative exercises to further strengthen and stabilize injured areas.  Massage therapy can help break up adhesions and scar tissue to increase blood flow and promote healing.  Lastly, enzyme nutrition can scientifically find the source of nutritional stress in your body, and help those stressed organs work properly.  As I stated earlier, this healing takes time.

If so, you can contact us one of several ways to set up a consultation. You can reach us on the web, stop by our office in Redmond, WA, or call us at 425-868-0120.

Chiropractic Helps You Stay Smart

Chiropractic Helps You Stay Smart.  According to breakthrough research published in 2018, chiropractic can help your brain work better for years to come.  This includes, of course, your memory, learning and your intellect.

Chiropractic Helps You Stay Smart

Like everything else, your ability to think, your memory, and all aspects of your brain health decline as you age. In this article, I will share what causes mental decline in the brain, as well as some valuable tools you can use to preserve your intellect, memory and brain health for years to come.

When you were born, most of your brain was an “empty canvas.”  While certain parts of your brain are dedicated to vital functions, like your heart, breathing and digestion, the rest is pretty much a blank canvas.  As you grow up, areas of your brain get filled in with certain knowledge, skills, and intellect.  While the brain does have a default map or template where each type of processing occurs, you can override it.  For example, if someone is born without hearing, the area of their brain that usually processes hearing will be used for sight or smell instead.  With each new experience, our brain forms new connections.  The more versatile these connections are, the healthier our brain.

As We Age…

However, as you age and this map or template fills in, it slowly becomes hard-wired.  Sadly, the more hard-wired our brain becomes, the harder it is to form new connections.  In simple terms, the harder it is to learn and/or remember new things.  In fact, the medical term for our ability to form new connections in the brain is “synaptic plasticity”.  Synapses are basically brain connections, and plasticity means flexible or ability to change.  As a result, the older we get, the less synaptic plasticity we have.  As these connections deteriorate, it gets harder to stay smart.

Chiropractic Helps Your Brain

Recent research, published in 2018 by Dr. Heidi Haavik, shows that chiropractic helps maintain your ability to form new brain connections.  As a result, this can help preserve your synaptic plasticity may keep your brain healthier and smarter as you age.  Other advice includes continuing to try and learn new things as you age.  The more you vary the way you exercise the brain, the better your neural plasticity.  This helps you stay smart for years to come.

At Redmond Ridge Chiropractic, we combine customized home exercises, with intersegmental traction, soft tissue work and either traditional or low-force spinal correction.  Our aim is to keep your spine and brain as health has possible, preserving your intellect as you age, helping you stay smart.
