Hi, I’m Dr. Jeff Jenkins, DC, in San Jose, California,

Definitely take your daughter to a chiropractor. If she has a SUBLUXATION in her mid-back, the nerves from T5, 6, 7 innervate the stomach and small intestines for digestion, as a chiropractor, we adjust the spine to relieve these nerves, and it may help her body heal itself from within. I also recommend she start drinking Alkalized water to decrease the acid in her body. You can find out about ALKALIZED WATER AT WATER-REVOLUTION.com/DRJ. My 16- and 17-year-old sons and I are drinking 4-5X the water we used to drink, cleanest, purest water I’ve ever had. It may be very helpful for your daughter.

Motion is life, we keep moving, we keep living. When joints of the spine get stuck and stop moving, leads to decreased function in the body, and over time creates degenerative disc disease and osteoarthritis. The best treatment for stuck or subluxated joints, is specific Chiropractic spinal adjustments to get the joints moving again.

My recommendation is to get to a Chiropractor as soon as possible. Dr Roger Sherry won the Nobel prize for brain research in 1980, he found that 90% of the energy of the brain is for relating the body to gravity... I’ve been saying for 22 years as a Chiropractor,”GRAVITY SUCKS”...9.85m/sec2, gravity is pulling us to Earth. My specialty is helping people understand about their bodies in this gravity environment in which we live. I teach people how to sit, stand and sleep in the least stressful positions to decrease the effects of gravity on their bodies.

Knowledge is power, and we never had that class in elementary, Jr High, High school nor College...”GRAVITY AND YOU”. In terms of is it too late, we all deal with the limits of matter, your age and degree of postural dysfunction will determine what can be done to help you. Please call a Doctor of Chiropractic ASAP to find out. I believe that with proper understanding, we can get better everyday until our last breath.

A lump that is not painful and projects out, may be several things, the most common being a lipoma, a small ball of sequestered fat, harmless and many people have them. That being said, without examining it is too hard to properly diagnose it. My recommendation is to get to a doctor, who can properly evaluate it.

I have a frozen shoulder. What should I do?

Motion is life, we keep moving, we keep living...The nerves that innervate your shoulders, come from the neck. Sitting at a computer for 18 hours/day limits the motion of the body. READ MORE
Motion is life, we keep moving, we keep living...The nerves that innervate your shoulders, come from the neck. Sitting at a computer for 18 hours/day limits the motion of the body. Get to a Chiropractor who can evaluate your shoulder, and who can help it get better, and most importantly, teach you how to avoid the stress and strain that has your shoulder frozen. Get a small trampoline and move on it regularly, for 3-5 min several times each day to get move movement into your shoulders and your entire body. Keep your CHIN UP!!! People who age poorly are all looking DOWN, chin in chest...this puts pressure on nerves from neck to shoulders, causing stiffness.

My left shoulder is broader than the right. Is this a growth problem?

Good morning and HAPPY FABULOUS FRIDAY. When looking at posture from a structural point of view, several possibilities to one shoulder being broader than the other. Muscle contraction of Levaror Scapula muscle on the shorter shoulder side (right for you), is the muscle from neck toward right shoulder painful to the touch? If so, that contraction will elevate right shoulder, and the result is right shoulder looks shorter and less broad. How long you’ve had this might be indicative on whether or not it can be fixed. Do you work at a computer? If so, then working with mouse always with right hand can alter the musculature from right side of your neck, through shoulder down to wrist, hand, and fingers. Sleeping postures can also lead to unilateral (one side) muscle contraction. Your weight distribution may also be a factor, if a woman or man carries a purse or bag on one shoulder everyday, then over time the body adapts to the stimulus, and people commonly lean to the opposite side to keep purse from sliding off shoulder. How old are you? You mentioned that you’ve noticed it now that you’re working out; key is for workouts to be balanced. If not, workouts can perpetuate the imbalances by making stronger muscles stronger, and the weaker side muscles proportionalely weaker. Another possibility can be a scoliosis (lateral or sideways curve of the spine). Best advice I can offer you is to get a thorough structural exam by a chiropractor, to be sure you’re in balance, and that the stresses to your neck and shoulder are even, and a doctor who can help you learn how to manage your structure so you can live a long, healthy, balanced life.
