  • Vertigo, Dizzy, Car-sick?

    To make it easy, we’re going to use the term ‘dizzy’ here to mean any of the following: vertigo, carsick, seasick, unsteady at any time, etc. Just know that ‘vertigo’ has a special meaning to physicians. In our world, it opens a host of differential diagnosis that does not come with...

  • Near, Far and Bizarre

    There’s this thing called ‘kinetic chain’. That’s how your body connects – like the old song, “The foot bone’s connected to the ankle bone…”, etc. The song is pretty simplistic as a view of anatomy but great for teaching about the parts of the body and how they connect...

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to take part in a mission trip to Haiti while attending chiropractic college. 75 other students and 10 Doctors of Chiropractic from around the world were also participants. We provided...

  • A Speech

    I recently wrote a speech for our Toastmasters club. For those of you who may not know about Toastmasters, the intent is to create leaders by learning public speaking and the underlying principles, and they have awesome curricula for achieving that. You need to play to your audience’s learning...

  • We Ignore...

    “WOW, that’s a huge repair bill! What happened to your car?” or “WOW…that’s what it cost to fix your hip? What happened?”Let’s take a look at a comparison between cars and our human bodies. I know it sounds weird, but for some, it helps put their body into a familiar situation....

  • Chiropractic Care for Raynaud’s

    I am a chiropractor, so it came as a surprise when a patient presented to me for care with a complaint of Raynaud’s Syndrome.  He (yes, one of the 10%) has episodes when working outside in the winter here in East Central Kansas. He has been a chiropractic patient of mine for a while and knows...

  • Why Your Chiropractor Should Be Your PCP

    "Why consider a chiropractor as your Primary Care Physician (PCP)?" This is important to talk about, considering the disparity between the amount of money the US spends on health care vs the actual health of our citizens. We live in a country that spends 17% of its GNP on health care and...

  • Tension Type Headaches

    Tension type headaches typically occur later in the day, and most of the time show up as mild to moderate pain in the back of your head, then spread forward into a ‘tight band’ around your head, occasionally directly above or behind the eyes. They can occur infrequently (called ‘episodic’)...

  • How long does it take to realign your hips?

    It depends on your own biodiversity. Depending on your condition. And the amount that your hips are out. That determines the amount of time required to realign them. See your chiropractor for evaluation to determine your best care plan. Dr. Armour - Armour Chiropractic Armourchiro.com READ MORE

  • Does getting your neck adjusted release toxins?

    Typically, no. The release of toxins can occur in several ways, either by chelation therapy or a fast weight loss process. Fat stores toxins, protecting us. When we lose a lot of weight really fast, those toxins are released, usually to our detriment. Neck adjustments are not generally in the areas associated with toxin sequestration. That being said, toxin release can occur from an adjustment if you have some secondary condition, like parasites or infection. And because adjustments increase cellular activity, if you have cell mediated toxin storage, the increase can move more toxins out of your cells. Dr Armour, DC Https://Armourchiro.com READ MORE

  • What is the fastest way to heal a calf muscle?

    Generally, a combination of microcurrent, e-stim and physical work tailored to your situation will correct an overused or strained muscle. If the muscle is torn, you might be better served with surgery, then the therapies mentioned above. Have your providers examine the muscle(s) involved to determine the extent of your injury, they will recommend appropriate treatment. Get a couple of opinions, make sure the option you choose is right for you. Best of Health, Dr Armour DC, https://armourchiro.com READ MORE

  • Should I eat before going to the chiropractor?

    You will generally lie flat on an adjustment table, so if you have a reflux condition, you might reschedule your meals. If not, there should be no problem, manipulation is done very fast to free restrictions, and whether you have eaten or should not play a role in the effectiveness of your treatment. READ MORE

  • Do slipped ribs show up on x-rays?

    Typically, no. Unless the cause was an accident or other trauma (which would be visible on an x-ray), a rib restriction is just that, a restriction (usually not viewable on x-ray) and can be corrected with chiropractic manipulation. Have your chiropractor examine you and adjust what he finds. READ MORE

  • Can your neck being out of place cause dizziness?

    Yes, it can - for several reasons. Dizziness (vertigo) has a few places that it can occur, and it can be nerve or structural in origin. If your neck has restricted motion in the joints, there may be pressure on the nerve structures that exit the spinal column - and this can lead to 'crossed wires' in your proprioception (a big word that means where your body experiences itself in space). If your proprioception is off, vertigo can result. If the restrictions are high up in the neck, they may place pressure on the 'brainstem', one of the major controllers of balance, and this can also cause vertigo. The inner ear is the major player though for balance. As we age (even at 37), we start to form crystals in the inner ear fluid. If these crystals do not stay in the lower part of the inner ear and move about, your sense of balance can be affected and make you dizzy. Have your chiropractor examine you, adjust what he finds, and if you still have dizziness, help you find the right treatment path for you specifically. READ MORE

  • Why do chiropractors crack your toes?

    Not all chiropractors manipulate your toes. If your chiropractor does, good for them! We adjust the joints of the body to increase joint space, restore proper motion and reduce pain and inflammation. Since your toes will move as they should, your balance, athletic performance and even foot aches and pain could improve! Best of health, Dr. Armour https://armourchiro.com READ MORE

  • Is manipulation good for frozen shoulder?

    Manipulation for frozen shoulder can be an amazing treatment for this condition. Frozen shoulder can be a condition with several causes, so your chiropractor needs to identify the root cause of your range of motion loss, and your pain. Imaging may be required if you do not respond to chiropractic adjustments. For more information, you can visit https://armourchiro.com READ MORE

  • How do chiropractors treat herniated discs?

    Chiropractors can treat herniated discs in several ways: direct manipulation of the affected spine area, decompression, laser treatment, contrast, e-stim and ultrasound therapies. Each of these types of treatment achieve different results, so the treatment that works for you may be just one or a combination of these. The intent of all treatment is to increase the joint space and 'persuade' the disc material to return to it's normal position, between your vertebra, not pushing against your spinal cord. If the disc is truly herniated, you may or may not find relief through chiropractic. Most patients get relief in the short to long term (within 6 months and lasting 10-20 years.) Please understand that a herniated disc is one where the disc material is no longer 'encased' in it's container (called the annular fibers). A lot of 'herniations' are actually 'bulging' discs and have a much better chance of treatment bringing relief. Best of health, Dr Armour, https://armourchiro.com READ MORE

  • What are the symptoms of a misaligned pelvis?

    The pelvis can 'misalign' for many reasons, trauma or injury, fracture, stress from exercise, or just from the activities of daily living. Symptoms can include pain in the area, knees, ankles, low and mid-back, even into the neck area (everything is connected!) . You may also notice your walking (gait) changes. When you walk, do you stride the same length on each side? Do you tend to walk in an arc? Your chiropractor can evaluate your pelvis and your gait to determine if you need adjusting. READ MORE

  • Why do chiropractors use activators?

    Chiropractors use the activator instrument for the same reason as regular adjustments - to restore proper motion to the joints of the body. The activator can be used for adjustments, and is used exclusively for adjustments by chiropractors that use the 'Activator Method' of determining restrictions. It can be considered as a low force adjusting method, so some chiropractors use the instrument for patients that do not like standard hand manipulation of the neck for instance. It is also extremely useful for smaller joints (hands, toes, etc. Best of Health, Dr Armour https://armourchiro.com READ MORE

  • Where do you feel intercostal muscle pain?

    Intercostal pain is pain that occurs in your rib areas, and can be caused by many factors including trauma, coughing from bronchitis or pneumonia, inflammation, etc. Your chiropractor will examine you to determine the cause of your discomfort and whether chiropractic treatment is warranted for your condition. Best of health, Dr Armour https://armourchiro.com READ MORE

  • Can a chiropractor damage your spine?

    For your age and if your are in good health with no underlying conditions like osteopenia or osteoporosis, your spine should not be damaged by chiropractic adjustments. It is important that you tell your chiropractor of any trauma, accidents, falls or conditions you may have been diagnosed with in the past so they can determine if you are at risk. Every chiropractor should provide you with a list of the risks and alternatives to treatment. Imaging is often recommended for patients with other conditions to make sure no injury occurs from chiropractic manipulation. Best of health, Dr Armour https://armourchiro.com READ MORE

  • Can a chiropractor help with foot pain?

  • Can you pop your sacroiliac joint?

    ‘Popping’ a joint is a misnomer for relief. The pop you may or may not experience is simply a small amount of gas in the joint, moving from one area of the joint to another. It should NEVER be confused with actual correction of a restriction. That being said – yes, the sacroiliac joint can be adjusted, and there may indeed be a pop or crack sound associated with it. Your chiropractor is best equipped to examine you and your condition to determine what the underlying root cause is for any associated pain and functional issues. Best of health, Dr Armour, DC Armour Chiropractic – https://armourchiro.com READ MORE

  • Can chiropractors realign your spine?

    In a sense, yes. we restore proper motion into the joints of your spine - actually, any joint of the body! If you have scoliosis, or another type of spinal deformity, depending on the severity, it may be possible to help 'realign' the spine. Have your chiropractor examine you and explain what care is appropriate for your condition. Best of Health. READ MORE

  • Can you pop your chest?

    Anywhere there is a joint, it may be adjusted. Generally, the chest area joints are the sternoclavicular joints at the top of your sternum and the rib joints. Rarely, the typhoid bone is not fused at the bottom of the sternum and it may be possible to adjust this as well. READ MORE

  • What massage therapy is best for shoulder pain?

    Depends on what your shoulder pain is... If rotator cuff injury, then light relaxation massage is in order, as long as there are no torn ligaments. If you have bone spurs causing your range of motion to be limited, then massage won't help at all. On the other hand, if you have shoulder impingement syndrome, where one or both shoulders don't move as far as they used to, or you can't get your hand to the small of your back, deep tissue massage may be in order. Have your chiropractor examine your shoulders for the cause of your discomfort, then recommend a course of care and massage if warranted. READ MORE

  • What does a pediatric chiropractor do?

Find restrictions in the joints and restore proper motion to the joints to improve function, range of motion, and nervous system functionality.
