It depends on the type of surgery, but yes, he has the potential to recover just fine from most spine surgeries. I would recommend he see a chiropractor after he has healed from the surgery. You must keep the rest of the spine working perfectly since some parts have been damaged at an early age. READ MORE
Increase your awareness of your posture. Be mindful and always asking yourself, “Am I sitting, standing, etc., correctly?” Stretch the pectoral muscles, hip flexors, hamstrings, and quads. Also, seek the advice of a chiropractor who does hands-on adjusting or who practices the CBP chiropractic method. READ MORE
Yes. Please have him find a great chiropractor that does x-rays and get him checked ASAP. READ MORE
Unequivocally yes! Please seek out a chiro in your area and schedule a consultation! READ MORE
Have a chiropractor X-ray and analyze then proceed with a course of adjustments. I have several patients with ankylosis spondylitis that are loving chiro care! READ MORE
Absolutely. You may also assess your day-to-day routines and make any other lifestyle changes that would be conducive to less muscle inflammation. Switching to a more anti-inflammatory alkaline diet will be monumental for your success as well. But first, see a chiro, get adjusted, and begin to reap the benefits of having a sound and properly functioning nervous system. READ MORE
You may have some structural damage that may take longer to heal and/or could even be permanent. Also, it is very likely that you misaligned some of the foot joints upon spraining the ankle. I would have a doctor of chiropractic take a look at it and see if it can be adjusted. Respectfully, READ MORE
That could be a result of several things, especially since it is worse in the morning. Changing a pillow may fix it. Or it could be a disc or joint inflammation or degeneration issue (those tend to flare more in the morning). Switch the pillow you use and use a pillow under the legs (if you are a back sleeper) or between the knees (if you are a side sleeper). If changing your sleep habits does not work, try having a chiropractor examine the spine and possibly take a lateral X-ray of the spine to see if there is any damage through there. Respectfully, READ MORE
I would get a thorough chiropractic evaluation and a set of full spinal X-rays to further assess this a condition. The chiro care will help with most spinal conditions like this. READ MORE
Shooting pain in the neck could be dozens of things. More commonly, it is due to an issue at or near the spine or intervertebral disc. You could easily have a chiropractor rule this out with a spinal exam and X-ray. Good luck! Respectfully, READ MORE
Look for a chiropractor who X-rays and who specializes in PI, i.e., "personal injury." Good luck! Respectfully, READ MORE
After your condition has stabilized, you will always have to do maintenance. Any machine you don’t maintain falls apart! See your care at the chiropractor as a lifestyle, not a treatment. Just like brushing teeth, cutting hair, clipping fingernails, etc. Your spine, discs, and nerves will thank you for it! READ MORE
I would see a chiropractor first to have your spine assessed. More than likely they will be able to pinpoint areas of your back that they can improve. See the video titled "The Chiropractor's Role" here: https://onehealthchiro.com/patient-education/ READ MORE
Absolutely. Chiropractic is a great option! See "The Chiropractor's Role" video on this page: https://onehealthchiro.com/patient-education/ READ MORE
Have it examined by an MD or chiropractor. They may x-ray to look for a stress fracture. The chiro may adjust the ankle to improve the alignment and function of the foot joints. READ MORE
I would have her evaluated by a neurologist. There are a number of things that could trigger shaking in the hands. Most notably is Parkinson's, a neuro could rule that out. Also a much less serious condition is simply called essential tremor and is more common. It doesn't always have to be a disease causing the shaking. I would also have a doctor of chiropractic x-ray her neck to see the amount of damage throughout that region of the spine, as the nerves from the neck go down to supply the hands. READ MORE
Muscles attach to bones and certainly a bone out of alignment will put more tension on any muscle, damaged or not. You're better off when you're aligned properly. READ MORE
Most chiropractor's will have no problem sitting down with a patient for a few minutes to hear his/her case. After that, the doctor can decide if the case can be best helped by chiropractic or some other method. READ MORE
This is the best case scenario. If you're going to work on a car, you want to know what's under the hood. The doctor that takes x-rays will be most precise, efficient, and will get better results. This is critical, especially with the spine (very complex). READ MORE
Never too late! Find a chiropractor that does CBP if you really want to correct posture! Sitting is the new smoking. See the video at the bottom of this page titled "Sitting is the New Smoking" https://onehealthchiro.com/patient-education/ READ MORE
Absolutely a great place to start. Have them evaluate your low back. See this video to learn more about a chiro's role: https://onehealthchiro.com/patient-education/ READ MORE
Yes indeed. It all starts with a good exam. Of course, nothing will be more effective than losing weight, but chiropractic can certainly be a supplement to that regimen. READ MORE
Depending on the severity, chiropractic care could help by working on and around the knees, as well as by balancing out the pelvic girdle. READ MORE
Research has shown that occipital adjustments to help the function of the accessory nerve can speed up the results and recovery with a frozen shoulder. READ MORE
Getting adjusted and doing massage are a great supplement to any weight loss strategies you are already engaged in...and will help the workouts go smoother and be less painful! READ MORE
Absolutely. 90% of nutrition and stimulation to the brain is generated by movement of the spine! Roger Sperry, MD proved this in his Nobel Prize winning research! READ MORE
Ice the knees for 20 min on and 30 min off. Since you were wearing heels I would recommend being adjusted by a chiropractor since heels shift your center of gravity and can cause the hips to become unlevel. READ MORE
Finding a DC who also does ART (Active Release Technique) would help significantly! READ MORE
It could be a gallbladder issue. I would ask a general practitioner to look into that. READ MORE
More than likely you are over-stressed or over-worked. Many times when we finally stop moving (at night) we will feel all the stress from the day at that time. If your worried about electrolytes, be sure you are getting plenty of the big 5: Sodium Potassium Chloride Magnesium Calcium READ MORE
Foam rolling is a great option for muscle soreness throughout the legs. READ MORE
A chiropractor does not aim to treat sinuses, however I have adjusted many patients who have related that their sinuses drained shortly thereafter. It's worth a shot. A chiropractor can adjust the upper neck to help with this, but won't drain the sinuses directly. READ MORE
Most likely nerve-related dysfunction. Could be coming from the neck. I would see a chiropractor that can x-ray the neck and assess your spine. If that isn't conclusive, check with a neurologist. READ MORE
Most likely a subluxation in the spine. See the video entitled "subluxation" on this page: https://onehealthchiro.com/patient-education/ READ MORE
Could be arthritis or even nerve related pain. A set of x-rays and chiropractic analysis would help you pinpoint the cause. READ MORE
Spinal manipulation is a more general technique that many osteopaths and physical therapist may employ at times. It is more rare that they use it. Spinal adjustments are only done by chiropractors, are much more specific, and are favorable to spinal manipulation. The adjustment does many things: -It improves mobility, which helps your range of motion and circulation in the specific area -It helps to slow the progression of arthritis and keeps the joints lubricated properly -It helps decrease muscle stiffness and tension due to better spinal alignment -It improves nerve function, meaning that the nerves supplying your entire body work better, and thus the body can work better/heal better/feel better! Respectfully, READ MORE
As a doctor of chiropractic, I cannot prescribe or recommend medicine. That question is best posed to your favorite MD. READ MORE
First, carry a notebook and note anything throughout your day that you notice may be contributing to your posture changes...then list how to remedy that. If you notice you're slouched at your desk, you might write "sit up taller," "get computer stand," or "set a timer to tell me to stand up and walk around every 30 minutes." Also, getting your posture/spine assessed by a doctor of chiropractic is very helpful and will accelerate your results. Respectfully, READ MORE
You may consider consulting a chiro or a podiatrist. A chiro can help balance your hips, knees, ankles, feet to get pressure off. May even look into a practitioner that does ART - Active Release Technique. Of course, losing weight is key as well. Great question! Good luck! Respectfully, READ MORE
Yes! I just helped one a few weeks ago. Chiropractic has been very effective with Bell's Palsy cases in the past and would be a great option! Respectfully, READ MORE
The pain could be a muscle strain or could be ligament related. Also a good chance there is a nerve that is involved. Go have a chiropractor check through your lower back and pelvis! Those nerves go into the legs and the muscles that attach in the leg attach at the pelvis also! Respectfully, READ MORE
If your primary concern is postural rehabilitation, I would seek out a CBP Chiropractor. Google that and see what you find! Respectfully, READ MORE
This is tough as you need to get her consciously competent about the issue. She needs to see how this can affect her health in he future...tough to get across to a 9-year-old with no cares in the world. Relate it to whatever she loves doing, e.g., if she loves to dance, tell her that better posture will make her a better dancer (it really will!). Find a way to link the bad posture to something your daughter values. Research shows that for every minute deviation in posture, every major measure of health is affected. Respectfully, READ MORE
Allow a bit of time and rest for a muscle strain to heal up completely. Then consider finding a chiropractor that can adjust your hips so the muscle can stay healthy and not be prone to injury in the future! Respectfully, READ MORE
Yes! Find an office with a Webster-certified Doctor of Chiropractic. Respectfully, READ MORE
Many times, an X-ray is adequate to make a diagnosis. Depending upon the type of tissue involved, a CT (CAT scan) or MRI may be ordered to further evaluate the spine and/or soft tissue abnormalities. Respectfully, READ MORE
A lump could be several things. Most likely you are referring to a Dowager's Hump, which can be a result of poor posture. Find a chiropractic clinic that does X-ray and they can most likely help you further your investigation. Respectfully, READ MORE
Try propping a few pillows under your legs to off-load the spine and take pressure off! This helps a lot of my patients feel better instantly (esp. low back pain patients). Depending, you may have some arthritis, i.e., DJD (wear and tear) that has set in over the years. This can render you stiff and sore in the morning. Check out our Facebook page "OneHealth Chiropractic" for recurring tips on stuff like this also! Respectfully, READ MORE
If the pain is persisting and worsening you make consider having it x-rayed to rule out a fracture. READ MORE
Unequivocally, yes. Find a chiropractor that can get a great set of X-rays to go with your spinal care. You will be amazed. READ MORE
Yes, it certainly can. Excess weight is especially detrimental to the lower back. If you are in pain, some chiropractic care to take the edge off might not be a bad idea, and could enable you to workout with less discomfort! A win-win! Respectfully, READ MORE
Chiropractic care is a great first line of defense against a job that requires prolonged sitting or standing. Also, implementing a 10 minute full body stretching routine that you do every single day would be a great adjunct to chiropractic care. You can search Google or YouTube and find several different routines with varying degrees of difficulty. Great question! Respectfully, READ MORE
Absolutely worth it to get him to a chiropractor immediately. Research has shown time and again that chiropractic is as effective (if not more) as any other treatment out there. Be sure to take him to a doctor that takes x-rays so that the position and condition of his spine can be assessed with as much precision as possible. Great question. Respectfully, READ MORE
That would require a more in-depth look by a professional. A chiropractor could x-ray you and may have suggestions on how to correct any misalignment in the shoulder, thoracic spine (midback), and/or scapula. It is a very real possibility that you shoulder blade appears to be broader due to improper biomechanical alignment that rotates that broader shoulder blade inward. Respectfully, READ MORE
Chiropractic care is meant to be enjoyed throughout life. Yes if you stop the progress will slowly be lost, just like if you stopped working out your body will decondition. The spine is always under stress and regular chiropractic care is requisite if one hopes to enjoy the benefits of optimal spinal health into the future. I urge you to see health insurance like car insurance: Aflac does not pay for tire rotations, oil changes, etc. They only cover catastrophic events. This is what health insurance is meant for also! Health insurance will not cover your gym membership, yoga membership, etc. I urge you to see chiropractic care as a necessity for maintenance of optimal health. Think of it as one of the most important memberships you will ever have! Thanks for the great question! READ MORE
Absolutely! You must ask yourself: "where do the muscles attach?" To the bones! Namely in the spine! Massage will help release muscle tension, but getting adjusted with some regularity will better align the structure (spine) the that muscles attach to, helping the massages last longer and promoting better health and overall function! At least go get checked! Your body will improve drastically. READ MORE
Conditions involving the low back can be stealthy and can develop every so slowly over time. The straw that broke the camel's back is a saying that has some truth to it. Sometimes it only takes a tiny force in the spine to produce symptoms. I would get your lower back examined and adjusted by a chiropractor at your earliest convenience. READ MORE
In patients I have worked on in the past, spina bifida has not been a risk factor for lowered fertility. Spina bifida literally just means "bi-fid spinous" which means the tip of the spinal bone is divided into two pieces rather than the usual one piece. READ MORE
