Tinnitus and chiropractic care? Really?

Not that I know of. I haven't seen any research to show chiropractic care can help tinnitus. But I guarantee you can find a chiropractor who says they can help. My advice would READ MORE
Not that I know of. I haven't seen any research to show chiropractic care can help tinnitus. But I guarantee you can find a chiropractor who says they can help. My advice would be to stay away from such a chiropractor. And, of course, I'm a chiropractor.

What is the difference between an osteopathic physician and chiropractor?

An osteopath, in the U.S., is virtually the same thing as a medical doctor. Some osteopaths have some training in manipulation and some provide spinal manipulation. Hope that READ MORE

Does scoliosis correct itself?

It depends on her age and how bad the scoliosis is. If above 15 degrees treatment may be warranted but often the doctor will evaluate every 6 months and see if it has progressed READ MORE

How can I correct the hunch in my back?

That depends. Often this is caused by crossed syndrome – you can look it up on the Internet. But I would check with my doctor to make sure you don't have something more serious READ MORE
That depends. Often this is caused by crossed syndrome – you can look it up on the Internet. But I would check with my doctor to make sure you don't have something more serious that could be causing compression fractures in your vertebrae.

Will I ever get relief pain from hip pain?

Possibly. It depends on what the actual problem is. It's not uncommon, due to ligamentous weakening and loss of muscle strength during pregnancy to have issues with your back READ MORE
Possibly. It depends on what the actual problem is. It's not uncommon, due to ligamentous weakening and loss of muscle strength during pregnancy to have issues with your back and/or your hips. I would recommend you see somebody who performs a comprehensive examination and can pinpoint the problem. If you see a chiropractor and they do not do a full workup you should go elsewhere.

Can I go on a treadmill or go cycling with back pain?

That depends on what is causing the stiffness and pain. Often the cause is not serious and using a treadmill or cycling would help but you need to see a professional to make sure READ MORE
That depends on what is causing the stiffness and pain. Often the cause is not serious and using a treadmill or cycling would help but you need to see a professional to make sure there isn't a serious problem like disc herniation, spinal infection, cancer, etc.

Do chiropractic adjustments help with chronic lower back pain?

Often they do help but what appears to help more is when the chiropractor or physical therapist does a comprehensive examination to, first rule out serious problems, and help READ MORE
Often they do help but what appears to help more is when the chiropractor or physical therapist does a comprehensive examination to, first rule out serious problems, and help with specific exercises and things your husband may be doing at home or at work that could be making his condition worse or even causing his back pain. If you go to a chiropractor who only provides spinal manipulation you're probably not going to find a long-term solution to your husband's problems.

After running, my ankles get a shooting pain. Can a chiropractor help?

Possibly. But I would recommend you see a professional to diagnose what is causing the pain. Shooting pain in both ankles concerns me more than if it was only in 1 ankle.

Is Spinal Manipulation and Osteopathic Manipulation one and the same?

They are basically the same thing, although the "conservative" chiropractors will tell you they are different--that the chiropractic "adjustment" is performed with some magical READ MORE
They are basically the same thing, although the "conservative" chiropractors will tell you they are different--that the chiropractic "adjustment" is performed with some magical intent (of course they won't tell you that). I worked with an osteopath for 10 years and what I noticed about the way he used spinal manipulation was that his manipulation was very general--treating an entire area vs. what I did, which was very specific based on my examination. My recommendation would be to use a chiropractor, but find one who belongs to the American Chiropractic Association, West Hartford Group, or has a certification in sports chiropractic (credentials are CCSP or DABCSP). If you have an osteopath you already know, just ask him or her if they commonly use spinal manipulation in their practices (many don't).
Hope that helps.

Will yoga help in treating my hip pain?

Most likely, but it is generally more important to strengthen the muscles to increase stability to the pelvis.

How to fix bad posture?

Tough question not knowing anything about you. First of all, if you are older, you could have osteoporosis, compression fracture(s), etc. If you are healthy with no problems at all, sometimes just being aware you need to keep your shoulders back (which will strengthen some muscles near the shoulder blades) along with a simple lower thoracic exercise might help. But, again, it really depends on some of your personal factors. My advice would be to see either a physical therapist and/or a chiropractor (especially one with a rehab or sports medicine certification). 

Hope that helps,

A small pain in both elbows without any recent trauma or overuse would worry me a bit that something not related to your elbows may be a problem. I would start with seeing your PCP for evaluation, possible blood tests, review of any medications, etc.

What is electrical stimulation?

Many of us have and continue the use of EMS (electrical muscle stimulation) primarily to help rehab damaged muscles. More recent research has shown not much benefit and it is better to provide specific massage therapy and focused stretches and exercises to help get things back to normal. United Health Care recently said they will not pay for the therapy due to  the research. That being said, I have personally seen some relief using it when people have very severe muscle spasms but I have used it probably once on those patients and then, with my advice and other treatment, don't need it again.

Hope that helps,

Spinal manipulation, as defined by modern chiropractors, is a procedure to try to restore motion to joints that are restricted - - due to many possibilities. Restricted joints often cause pain in the joints themselves or cause pain in the ligaments and /or muscles near the joint. But spinal manipulation is often a small part of what a modern chiropractor does to treat ailments.

Why do I have back pain while eating?

See your medical doctor. Back pain shortly after starting to eat could be a sign of a gall bladder issue.

Yes, that is possible and not that uncommon.

Experiencing numbness and pain after elbow fracture treatment. Why is this happening?

Hi, sorry to hear that. If it is soon after the fracture, you have to be concerned about swelling and pressure on the nerve(s). If there was surgery, you have to worry about swelling, READ MORE
Hi, sorry to hear that. If it is soon after the fracture, you have to be concerned about swelling and pressure on the nerve(s). If there was surgery, you have to worry about swelling, but also trauma to the nerve during surgery. Regardless, you don't want this to go on. Either go back to your doctor or get a second opinion.
