  • How to fix bad posture?

    Hello! Postural problems may be as simple as a bad habit, but could also be from a structural problem. If a bad posture habit isn’t corrected, it can become a structural problem. It would be a really good idea to have a chiropractic check-up to see if you need structural correction. Gentle chiropractic adjustments can start you toward better posture and a happier husband! At home, you can pay attention to your posture and sit up straight when you notice yourself slouching, stretch into a corner or doorframe, lay on a foam roller, etc. Unfortunately, there is no magic wand, and your participation will be critical to your posture success. Best of health, Dr. Steven Moon READ MORE

  • What is myofascial pain syndrome? How is it treated?

    Hello, Here is a link with a lot of information. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/myofascial-pain-syndrome/symptoms-causes/syc-20375444 It sounds like it involves trigger points and it can turn into fibromyalgia. The link above left out Chiropractics, but I would want to be checked by a good Chiropractor and make use of massage therapy. Good luck and good health, Dr. Moon READ MORE

  • Why do I have back pain while eating?

    Hello, Hmmm. Well, sitting can put a lot of pressure on your back, especially if you don’t have support for your back while you sit. You could try putting a pillow, towel or jacket in the small of your back and see if that helps. If you are having stomach or GI issues, that can cause pain but not usually in the back. Gallbladder problems sometimes refer pain to the right upper back. Good luck and good health! Dr Moon READ MORE

  • My son suffers from ADHD. Should I bring him to a chiropractor?

    Hi, Everyone benefits from a better functioning nervous system through Chiropractic care. However, there is not a direct relationship between an adjustment and ADHD. My son has Tourette’s Syndrome and he had great results from a brain supplement called EHT from Nerium. You might want to check into that, or CBD oil which I have heard good things about too. Always check with your doctor though. Good luck! Dr Moon READ MORE

  • I have a dull pain in my lower back. How can I treat it?

    Hello, First, you should have your back checked by your chiropractor. I can't tell what is wrong with you from an email, but I can give you some suggestions which do not replace the need for a medical evaluation. It sounds like you overdid the Zumba. Whenever starting a new exercise program, it is always a good idea to start slow and do less than you think you can. It is so easy to do too much and end up paying for it later. It sounds like you have inflamed your lower back, either irritated nerves, disc, or muscles. A chiropractor can examine you, find out what is wrong, and get you back on the road to Zumba. If you put heat on your low back, take it off and use ice instead for 15 to 20 minutes, then take it off for 20 minutes. You can reapply as often as you need to and it will help with inflammation and pain. In health, Dr. Steven Moon, D.C. READ MORE

  • I have pain in my back everytime I put on weight. Why does this happen?

    Hello, This Is Dr. Steven Moon, Concord Chiropractic. You should be checked by a qualified Chiropractor to see what is going on in your case. Many things can cause problems like this, including: pinched or irritated nerves, disc narrowing or degeneration, and arthritic spurring. You should be checked to make sure what it is. When you gain weight, it does put more pressure on the spine and it is not linear. If you put on an extra 10 pounds, it can increase pressure on your back by 100 pounds! Best wishes in good health, Dr. Moon, Concord Chiropractic READ MORE

  • I have neck pain that only occurs when I lie down. What could be the reason?

    Hello from Dr. Moon! This could be from several reasons, and you should be checked by a chiropractor to see what exactly is going on. Since it happens when you lay down, I would check your pillow as a possible aggravating factor. Your pillow should support your neck, but let your head fall back a little. I like "My Pillow," but make sure you get the correct size. We even sell them in our office. Normally, this should not happen. There is probably misalignment of the vertebrae pinching or irritating nerves, or there could be degenerative changes like disc narrowing or arthritis. These things get worse if they aren't taken care of, even if changing the pillow helps, so an appointment is a really good idea. Good luck! Dr. Steven Moon, Concord Chiropractic, Inc. READ MORE

  • How is a chiropractor different from a physical therapist?

    Chiropractors and physical therapist are very different, but are both helpful for back problems. Briefly, Chiropractors check for structural misalignment of the joints in the body, especially the spinal vertebrae and pelvis. Misalignments can cause irritation or put pressure on the nerves or spinal cord. Chiropractors use a variety of procedures to adjust the joints, improving mobility and reducing pain. Chiropractors are Doctors and can diagnose, and can send patients to physical therapy. Physical Therapists usually will give a patient exercises to do during physical therapy, and at home. These exercises help strengthen and stretch various body areas to help improve structure. Most physical therapists are not Doctors. Both Physical therapists and Chiropractors can use physiotherapy procedures like electrical muscle stimulation, ultrasound, hot or cold packs, traction, etc. Recent research found that the best results were reached when a combination of Chiropractic AND exercise was performed. Best wishes for a speedy recovery! Dr. Steven Moon, Concord Chiropractic READ MORE
