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 You Need Help

Do you suffer from chronic pain, muscle discomfort, fatigue, depression and brain fog? 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.

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.

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 is Healthy

Chiropractic is Healthy.   As alternative health gains recognition, more and more Americans are seeking chiropractic care.  While they seek this care for pain, they experience a host of health benefits.  In fact, research from Spine Journal shows chiropractic is good for your overall health.

Chiropractic is healthy.  Recently, Spine Journal published a study on the growing popularity of chiropractic.  While most people seek chiropractic for neck and low back pain, they discover a host of benefits.  First of all, how can chiropractic help with issues not related to pain.  Secondly, why aren’t more medical professionals referring patients for chiropractic treatment?

In order to answer the first question, I need to explain how your body works.  Your body has a complex network of “wires”, or nerves.  While some of these nerves send information to your brain about your environment, other send information from the brain to all of your organs and tissues.  Since our environment always changes, our body needs to change to adapt. First your body detects these changes.  Afterwards, your brain makes decisions on how to adapt or react to those changes.  Lastly, your brain sends orders down action nerves.  These orders contain detailed information for specific organs.  Furthermore, the information tells your organs how to adapt to your surroundings.

Nerves Aren’t Just for Pain

Before I continue, I need to ask a question.  Just how much of that sounds like it’s involved in pain?  Surprisingly, many Americans believe that nerves only carry pain signals.  In fact, I often ask my audiences what percentage of nerves deal with pain.  Most people answer 100%.  However, did you know that less than 8% of your nerves deal with pain?  In contrast, the other 92% control every organ, tissue, system, cell, and function in your body.  In fact, the weight of a dime is enough to reduce nerve signals by 80%.  As a result, it doesn’t take much.

As it turns out, chiropractic works with that very network.  The careful use of precise spinal corrections takes pressure off of valuable nerves.  This allows free communication between the brain and the body.  That way, the body is able to send accurate information about your surroundings.  Afterwards, you brain can effectively tell your body how to adapt.  This is why many chiropractic patients report improvements in other aspects of their health as a result of care.  What other aspects, they vary from improvements in blood pressure readings, increased focus, less depression and much more.  Since the brain controls every function, just about any function can improve.  This is why chiropractic is healthy.

Why Don’t More Doctors use Us?

So, why don’t more doctors recommend chiropractic care?  After all, chiropractors are cost effective.  You have to remember that these days, medical doctors don’t work in private practice.  Instead, they work for hospitals that are essentially corporate conglomerates.  As a result, hospitals train them to keep business within their corporation.  So, if you suggest chiropractic, your medical doctor will likely send you to physical therapy.  In fact, they pretty much ignore your suggestion.

Why? You see, the hospital employs physical therapists as part of their staff.  Sadly, they don’t employ chiropractors.  So when your M.D. performs the old bait and switch, they have their employer’s best interests in mind.

A Holistic Approach

At Redmond Ridge Nutrition & Chiropractic we take a multistep approach to your health and wellness.  First our precise chiropractic techniques take pressure of vital nerves.  After all, chiropractic is healthy.  In addition, we use the right enzyme supplements to find stress organs and support their healthy function.  Of course, we only recommend treatment and supplements after testing that is based on sound medical principals.  Dr. Marrone is highly skilled in pediatric chiropractic.  As a matter of fact, Dr. Marrone’s pediatric chiropractic professor was the president of the ICPA at the time.

Chiropractors are Cost Effective, According to Research

Chiropractors are Cost Effective, According to Research.  As insurance rates soar out of control, chiropractors became easy prey.  Why?  Because they are private entities in a corporate driven health care system.  Just what are these “experts” saying?  They state that chiropractic is expensive, ineffective and downright dangerous.  However, research shows just the opposite.  In fact, chiropractors are clinically effective, safe and cost effective.

Chiropractors are Cost Effective, according to research.  In fact, according to Spine Journal, spinal adjustments combined with medical care show better results than medical care alone.  (Goertz et al. (2013), Spine).  Additionally, the British Medical Journal published research showing that chiropractic care resulted in faster and better improvement than physical therapy or medical care.  The same journal also showed that the costs were about one third of physical therapy or traditional medical treatment. (Korthals-de Bos et al (2003), British Medical Journal)

In yet another journal article, chiropractic care showed a 94% improvement compared to 69% in medical care or physical therapy.  (Schneider et al (2015), Spine).  Additionally, another article from Spine Journal reported a 42.7% reduction in the need for surgery.  So, what does that mean?  It means for surgical candidates who saw a chiropractor first, less than 60% needed surgery. (Keeney et al (2012), Spine). In this case, our care reduced costs.  After all, surgery is quite expensive.  

Lastly, patients under chiropractic care showed better improvements in pain, function and patient satisfaction.  This study included both acute injuries and people who suffered from chronic pain. (Haas et al (2005), Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics).   

So, it turns out chiropractors are cost effective after all.  In fact, we save money.
