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.

Chiropractic Detoxification

Chiropractic Detoxification.  New research shows that regular spinal corrections increases your antioxidant and lowers your free radical levels.  In addition to health improvement, this also lowers the effects of stress on your health.

Chiropractic detoxification.  Research from JMPT in February of 2015 shows a sizable difference in blood health, free radicals, and stress hormone levels between people who received spinal corrections versus those who did not.  In fact, this provides a host of health benefits.

So, what exactly are these benefits?  For starters, many already know the dangers of oxidative stress and free radicals.  In fact, they can lead to chronic inflammation which causes a host of problems including heart disease, diabetes and cancer.  Sadly, I’m only naming a few here.  Surprisingly, this increased global swelling causes most chronic illnesses today.  However, oxidative stress also causes chronic pain.  As a result, chiropractic reduces pain not just from the physical correction, but also by making your overall body chemistry better.  In fact, this also reduces adrenal stress too, which as another problem plaguing our great nation.

How it Works

So, I bet I can predict your next question.  Exactly how can spinal corrections reduce free radicals?  According to the same research, spinal corrections increase certain enzymes that combat adrenal stress and free radicals.  In our office, we multiply this success with specific home exercises and enzyme nutrition.  In fact, we can provide enzyme supplements that further help your body properly manage inflammation and free radicals.

What if you’re not comfortable with tradition “cracking” and “poping?”  Well, the good news is that our office has mastered a variety of corrections.  These safe and effective techniques range from the traditional moves to gentle low-force maneuvers that do not involve any “cracking,” “poping,”or twisting for that matter.

Prevention is easier than Fixing the Problem

Are you looking for a complete solution to achieve total health and wellness?  Perhaps you’re one of the smart ones who recognizes prevention and maintenance are much cheaper and easier than waiting for something to break.  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. Then I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life. I will even look over your x-rays to 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.

Scoliosis- Chiropractic offers an alternative

While scoliosis is harmless when it is minor, a major curve can cause chronic pain, and even organ problems.  A scoliosis as an abnormal sideways curve in the spine.  Additionally, it is more common in women, and develops during adolescence.  Sadly, the no one really understands the cause.  However, strong research shows chiropractic care as a viable option for treatment.

Before I continue, let me give you some real statistics about scoliosis in America.  This malady is the most common spinal deformity in school-age children. (Chiro & Osteo. 2005). Additionally, experts estimate the number of cases in the United States as greater than 4 million. (National Scoliosis Foundation) Childhood scoliosis leads to 442,900 office visits, 133,300 hospital visits, and 17,500 emergency room visits. (HCUP-AHRQ 2011). And surprisingly, surgeons perform about 29,000 surgeries on adolescents every year in the United States to fix this major problem. (WJO 2015)

Scoliosis can be Serious

In addition to serious problems with breathing, heart health and digestive health (Mayo Clinic), over 63% of patients with scoliosis suffer from chronic back pain.  However, research shows that spinal corrections provide a cost-effective viable solution.  As a result, there is no need to let your child suffer needlessly.   In fact, the sooner you take action, the easier it is to fix.  There even comes a point in time where we can’t fix it.  Lastly, if this condition gets bad enough, it can hinder lung and heart function.  When this happens, surgery to place steel rods along the spine to brace it in place may be your child’s only option.  Sadly, sometimes these titanium rods can even break.

So, how can you tell if your child has a scoliosis?  Furthermore, how can you tell how bad it is? Actually, we look at X-rays.  Specifically, we look at the angle of bend in the spine.  This is called the “Cobbs Angle.”  This will tell me how severe your scoliosis is.  From there I can determine if you’re a good candidate for care, or if surgery is your only option.  If you already have X-Rays, I can look them over to see if I can help you.  If you don’t have a picture, I can order them after a thorough examination.

A Combined Approach for Better Results

If you are a good candidate for care, I will perform a thorough examination, and develop a comprehensive treatment plan.  With our unique combination of traditional or low-force spinal corrections with the right home-care exercise program, we have a good chance of correcting your child’s scoliosis.  However, it’s important to remember that the longer the problem is there, the harder it is to correct.  So, if you suspect your child has this problem, it’s important to evaluate and treat it right away.  If you’re not a good candidate, I will refer you to the right specialists.

Are you concerned about your child’s spinal health? Do they suffer from chronic back pain?  Or perhaps you’re worried about the long-term complications.  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. Then I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life. I will even look over your child’s x-rays to help me determine if they are a good candidate for care. If you’re not, we’ll make every effort to provide the proper referral.

Chiropractic Helps Asthma and COPD

Chiropractic Helps Asthma and COPD.  The World Health Organization reports that some of the most common chronic lung problems include asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and pulmonary hypertension.  The last one is basically high blood pressure in the arteries connecting the heart and lungs.

Chiropractic Helps Asthma and COPD.  While these diseases have no real cure, the typical solution involves medication.  In the case of asthma, you also have to avoid “triggers.”  Triggers are basically things in the environment that can cause an asthma attack.  Common triggers include pet dander, dust and pollen.  However, depending on the person, it could be just about anything.  While chiropractic care is no substitute for medicine, research shows it, too can help.

In fact, research from the Journal of Physical Therapy Science confirms that spinal adjustments can help with breathing problems.  Furthermore, this is very recent research published in September of 2016.  In fact, none of the patients in the study sought spinal care for lung problems.  Instead, they sought treatment for neck or low back pain.  Additionally, none of the subjects in the study were taking any medications.

The study concluded that “chiropractic care likely plays a more important role in healthy lung function than most people realize. This information may be helpful to patients who are already experiencing asthma or COPD issues and looking for relief, but it may also work to reduce the likelihood of lung-related diseases in the first place.”

At Redmond Ridge Nutrition & Chiropractic, we take a complete approach to your lung health.  First, we can use either traditional or low-force spinal corrections to support healthy breathing.  On top of that, we can use enzyme nutrition in combination with the right dietary changes to support healthy airways.

Chiropractic helps medical care.

Chiropractic helps medical care.  In a world where medicine is still at odds with spinal adjustments, new research shows that they can work very well together.  In fact, the military is now adopting this very strategy.

Chiropractic helps medical care.  According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), spinal corrections helped military patients recover faster than medicine alone.  In fact, the study concluded the following results.  “Chiropractic care, when added to medical care, resulted in improvements in low back pain levels and disability in active duty military personnel.”  Furthermore, the study further validates spinal adjustments with the following statement.  “This study provides additional support for the inclusion of chiropractic care as an important part of combined care for neck and back pain.”  On top of that, those who received adjustments were able to return to duty faster.

Some VA Hospitals try Adjustments First

In fact, some VA Hospitals recommend spinal adjustments to back surgery patients before their surgery.  Surprisingly, this lead to a 50% reduction in the number of people who needed surgery.  That is to say, spinal adjustments reduced the need for surgery in half of the patients.  For all of these people, doctors thought surgery was their only option.

A Complete Approach to Back & Neck Pain

Rather than focusing on the symptom, which is your pain, we choose to focus on the cause.  While we understand that you’re suffering, we want to address the actual cause and not the symptom.  We achieve this with our unique combined approach.  This cutting edge approach includes the right type of spinal corrections, a home exercise program, specific traction, soft tissue work and enzyme nutrition.   If your problem is more serious, we will even work alongside a physical therapist.  We can also use traditional techniques, or low-force adjustments.  These low-force moves occur without any “cracking” or “popping.”

Do you suffer from severe or frequent back pain?   Are you missing out on work family or fun?  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. Then I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life.

Chiropractic Helps Migraine Headaches.  Migraine headaches are one of the biggest reasons Americans like you turn to medication.  According to the CDC, more than 36 million Americans suffer from migraine headaches.  In fact, we spend over $4 billion each year on over-the-counter medication to treat them.  However, medication only provides short-term relief.  Unfortunately, modern medicine does not have an answer beyond drugs.  Unfortunately, most people are unaware of the serious dangers of the popular over the counter meds.  Of course, once those stop working, your doctor will give you a scrip for stronger ones.

Chiropractic & Migraine Headaches

However, research from 2016 shows that patients under chiropractic treatment had fewer migraines than those using popular drugs.  Additionally, those under chiropractic treatment also had shorter migraines.  Sadly, the study still did not credit the spinal corrections.  Why?  Because when performing a spinal adjustment, it is impossible to remove the doctor from the equation.  This makes the double-blind part of the experiment difficult.  As a result, the study concludes the result was due to a placebo effect, despite the facts that the statistics show very strong evidence that spinal corrections performed better than placebo or medication.   You can look up the study here.

A Comprehensive Approach

Redmond Ridge Nutrition & Chiropractic offers a safe, natural, and effective approach for headache (s) and migraines.  We use a unique combination of traditional or low force chiropractic care, home exercises, enzyme nutrition*, and massage therapy.
