Health & Stress
There is a tendency for people who are under stress to allow their muscles to become tense. This can have an adverse affect upon the nerves as they exit the spine, since they may become irritated or pinched.
Stress may manifest itself in different ways with different people.
Most experts agree that most illnesses can be made worse or even created by stress. Excessive nervous stress contributes to heart disease, high blood pressure, headaches, ulcers, indigestion, constipation and nervous breakdowns, among others. Many patients note that upon receiving care, they have more energy, feel more relaxed, meet their daily challenges with greater vigor, sleep better and generally feel better.
Chiropractic’s respect for the healing wisdom of the body, removal of spinal stress that interferes with the flow of natural body energies, and promotion of spine, joint, muscle and nerve balance and stability make it a health care choice for pre-menopausal, menopausal and post-menopausal women alike.
The symptoms of A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. (Attention Deficit Disorder and Hyperactivity) are often triggered by environmental factors. Children who are having reactions to food or environmental allergens run the risk of being misdiagnosed. In addition to these causes, the problem is frequently said to be hereditary. This may be due to mineral, enzyme, essential fatty acid or amino acid deficiencies passed on from one generation to the next rather than a “bad gene”.
Minerals determine the body’s ability to utilize available amino acids that in turn regulate neurotransmitter levels, especially serotonin. People with A.D.D./A.D.H.D have been shown to improve when serotonin levels are raised. Ritalin raises the serotonin levels in the brain. Unfortunately, Ritalin does this in a way that further stresses the body and may cause undesirable effects as well.
A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. are not mysterious diseases of unknown origin any longer. Children and adults are being successfully treated through natural means. Successful treatments include dietary changes, chiropractic atlas subluxation adjustment, craniosacral therapy, homeopathic and herbal remedies and kinesiology. We would advise people to seek out and research alternative methods to treat a diagnosis of A.D.D. prior to beginning any drug program.
What are Pressure Points? Stress affects each individual in a variety of ways. Excess stress that cannot be eliminated from the body is stored in specific spots called Pressure Points. This stored energy usually occurs along a nerve or nerve pathway, which can result in diminished nerve flow and can ultimately affect you health. Many conditions like headaches, TMJ, and carpal tunnel syndrome can be linked to nerve interference.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you owe it to yourself to be examined, diagnosed and adjusted by a chiropractor.
Stress Free Sitting
In this workshop we teach you why repetitive strain injuries should not occur, with proper habits and thinking. You are shown how to organizing your workstation, spine anatomy, the proper ways to stand, work, sit and sleep.
You will learn how to correctly place your hands, wrists, buttocks, knees and feet along with proper placement of your chair, desk, keyboard and monitor. You will know the importance of micro-breaks and stretching to reduce stress.
Many athletes feel chiropractic gives them the best “on” and “off” the field care utilizing natural methods of health care, without fear of drug reactions, loss of alertness, or contest disqualification.
There is no question that an athlete performs better when under chiropractic care. That’s why many amateurs and professional wouldn’t dream of entering competition without first getting a chiropractic spinal checkup. Chiropractic’s respect for the healing wisdom of the body, removal of spinal stress that interferes with the flow of natural body energies, and promotion of spine, joint, muscle and nerve balance and stability make it the health care of choice for athletes and fitness enthusiasts alike.
Before long, worldwide sports-governing bodies will not only recognize, but encourage the inclusion of chiropractors’ input; a testimony to the effectiveness and appropriateness of our fresh, natural, common-sense approach to health.
We give educational workshops for businesses and individual groups on how to eliminate unsafe conditions and practices at work and at home. We show proper standing, sitting, lifting, bending, reaching, twisting, sleeping, and the use of safety belts.
We also include proper nutrition, exercise and positive mental attitude. It is a fun, fast paced program, accompanied by slides that only take 30 to 40 minutes. We will show why safety is so important!
This program has helped many companies reduce and prevent work related injuries. And because of this, it helps save thousands of dollars through the reduction in costs of claims, number of claims, employee absences and injury occurrences.
We include in the presentation a Spinal Analysis for all who attend. Our Spinal Analysis machine will tell you in 30 seconds, without disrobing or x-rays, the cause of many health problems which may have been previously overlooked.
