You Shouldn’t Have To Suffer To Look Good

By · Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018 · Comments Off on You Shouldn’t Have To Suffer To Look Good

Clear Lake Chiropractor Comments: During this time of the year I have many patients dressing up for proms and graduations. Unfortunately, several of my patients have injured themselves just trying to “look good”. Looking fashionable should not be painful. The next time you have to get dressed up for a prom, banquet or wedding, keep a couple fashion tips in mind.

 

You do not have wear your grandmother’s orthopedic shoes, but wearing high heels puts an unnatural strain on your lower back. It also increases the likelihood of falls and can lead to hammertoes. A nice low heal or flat will be better on your spine and minimize the chance of falling.

 

How your clothes fit will also have an effect on how you feel. Tight and restrictive clothes will limit your motion and make it difficult for your body to bend in its normal manner. The restrictive motion will also put additional strain on your joints.

 

Extra weight is also a problem. I am not talking about your weight, but the weight of large purses, necklaces or earrings. Extra weight puts a strain on your muscles and joints. The necklaces and earrings put an additional strain on your neck muscles and joints. This can lead to neck and upper back pain as well as headaches. The purse should be small and the strap utilized. Attention should be made to switch the side that you are carrying the purse on periodically to prevent a muscle imbalance

 

These tips may seem trivial, but they have a direct effect on your health and wellbeing.

The Benefits of Chiropractic Care After an Auto Accident.

By · Tuesday, March 13th, 2018 · Comments Off on The Benefits of Chiropractic Care After an Auto Accident.

Clear Lake Chiropractor Comments: Unfortunately 20 – 50 million people a year are injured or disabled in auto accidents. The majority of these injuries are what is called “soft tissue” injuries. Soft tissue injuries are injuries that occur to muscles, tendons & ligaments, not hard tissues like bones.

After an accident, one of two things will happen. The accident is either severe enough that you are taken by an ambulance to the hospital to treat your injuries or you will go home to see if your discomfort gets better. If you go to the hospital, when you are released from the hospital you will be told to follow up with a doctor. If you go home to wait and see if the discomfort will go away, give it a couple days for the pain to go away. If the pain is still persisting after 2-3 days, then you should have a doctor look at your spine to see what has occurred.

The type of doctor you see will determine what type of care you receive and the long term results you will get. If you go to your average medical doctor, he will treat you with medications and if that doesn’t work, then refer you out for physical therapy. If you go to a spine doctor, either an orthopedic or neurosurgeon, then they will typically order an MRI to see if you need surgery or epidural spinal injections (ESI’s). The best doctor to see is an experienced chiropractor. Chiropractors see musculoskeletal injuries every day. Because they see a variety of spinal and extremity (knee, shoulder, wrist, elbow and ankle) complaints on a regular basis, they are able to see injuries that are not obvious to doctors that don’t regularly treat them. A quality doctor of chiropractic has a variety of techniques and therapies to help reduce the inflammation quickly and minimize the formation of scar tissue. By minimizing your need for drugs, you can understand how you are truly healing and prevent the chance of injuring yourself by possibly being over medicated. Medications can also have adverse side effects that lead to other problems. A good chiropractor will also give you home based exercises and stretches to help increase your range of motion (ROM). These exercises and stretches will help you quickly return to how you were before the accident.

If your doctor of chiropractic does not see an improvement in your complaints in 2 -4 weeks, he or she can order an MRI or make the appropriate referral to another doctor to help co-manage your condition.
