Lumbar Control Panel

Digestive problems? Taking care of the spine might just take care of that bellyache as well!
The lumbar region of the spine, more commonly referred to as the "lower back," is often the source of many health problems we see. This area of the spine serves as the distribution center for your brain's control and regulation of many important organs and tissues. And while the nervous system is very complex and every organ or tissue has multiple nerve supplies, here's a new way of thinking Read more

Barking Dog Syndrome

Many new practice members ask us why we examine their lower back, when their problem is in their neck and shoulders. Two words: compensation reactions. It's not the bark that's the problem; what causes the bark is what we have to address!

While it's tempting to think of regional parts of the spine, it must be viewed in its entirety.Your body is constantly adapting to the force of gravity. Just as a house foundation that settles produces ceiling cracks and doors and windows that Read more

My Baby Won't Nurse!

Sometimes what comes naturally... doesn't.
After a baby's first breath, the next thing it looks for is a breast. It happens quite naturally thousands of times a day. Except when it doesn't. Several such cases have been documented in the Journal of Manipulative Physiological Therapeutics:

Small Bones. Big Job!

The Atlas and Axis are tiny bones that have a very important job. When you think about the atlas and the axis do you think about world geography? A globe? Or a pair of very important bones?

The first seven vertebrae in the spine make up what is known as the cervical spine. It begins right below the neck and ends where the 12 vertebrae of your mid-back, or thoracic spine, begin.

The two uppermost vertebrae at the top of the cervical spine are different from the Read more

Why Chiropractic is the Best Solution for Sciatica Pain

Sciatica and chiropracticSciatica and chiropractic
Sciatica pain is often so debilitating that it forces people to miss work and other normal activities.  Of all patients with low-back pain, sciatica patients have the highest level of disability (1).  In fact, patients with sciatica are disabled for an average of 72 days according to Norwegian public-health records.
Fortunately, a recent study offers hope to sciatica patients: chiropractic care can speed the recovery from sciatica flare ups and allow patients to return to work sooner (2).

The study evaluated 44 Norwegian workers after they came to the hospital with severe sciatica pain. Most of those patients had been experiencing pain for three or more weeks prior to their hospital visit.
The hospital chiropractor examined each patient to evaluate his/her posture and gait, range of motion, and palpation of the lumbar spine.

The chiropractic then performed various joint adjustments to the spine and other limbs that had been injured through patients compensating for pain. Ice treatment was also used to relieve soft tissue soreness.Patients were treated daily in the hospital and later three times a week for the first two weeks. Some patients needed additional follow-up treatment but typically did not exceed 14 treatments.

In matter of 21 days, 91% of patients returned to work full-time. Two patients returned to work part time. Researchers concluded this study demonstrates the potent benefits of collaboration between chiropractors and orthopedic surgeons. Chiropractic care can put an end to your sciatica pain so you can begin living your life fully again.
