Vaughan Chiropractor Discusses Chiropractic Care For Low Back Pain

 

Maple, ON – Back pain is a common condition and health care problem that affects 4 out of 5 (80%) of people. Back pain can be debilitating, often times resulting in lost time from work. As well, back pain can affect other aspects of quality of life, such as time with family, sports, recreational and leisure activities.

If you are suffering of back pain, whether it’s acute or chronic, seek the advice and consultation of a chiropractor in your community for treatment, relief and correction of the back problem.

Here are 5 reasons to seek chiropractic care for back pain relief:

  1. Chiropractic care for back pain helps with immediate relief of symptoms and is safer than drugs.  Drugs come with a variety of dangerous side effects.
  2. More than pain relief, a chiropractor will look for what is causing the underlying back pain and back problem. Once the cause of the back problem is determined, the chiropractor can recommend a treatment plan that aims at correcting the spinal condition that is creating the back pain symptoms.
  3. The chiropractor provides home care advice that assists in the safe recovery of the back pain and the back problem.  For example, you may get advice on how to sit, stand and sleep in position that prevent further damage and aid in recovery. You may also get advice on proper lifting techniques that helps prevent back injury from these activities.
  4. The chiropractor is trained in providing the appropriate exercises that help with strengthening the back and core muscles as well give specific stretches to alleviate muscle tension naturally.
  5. Once the back problem or spinal condition is corrected, regular chiropractic care can help maintain an optimal spine. Keeping the spine healthy and optimized can help prevent spinal degeneration.

If you have been suffering with low back pain, whether it’s been a few days, months or years, look for a chiropractor in your city for back pain relief and correction.

Neck Pain – Can Chiropractic Really Help?

Monday, July 30th, 2012

Neck Pain Relief Treatment 200x300 Neck Pain – Can Chiropractic Really Help?Neck pain is a very common problem affecting up to 70% of the adult population at some point in life.  Though there are specific causes of neck pain such as arising from a sports injury, a car accident or “sleeping crooked,” the vast majority of the time, no direct cause can be identified and thus the term nonspecific is applied.

There are many symptoms associated with patients complaining of neck pain and many of these symptoms can be confused with other conditions.

Wouldn’t it be nice to know what neck related symptoms are most likely to respond to chiropractic manipulation before the treatment has started?  This issue has been investigated with very favorable results!

The ability to predict a favorable response to treatment has been termed, “clinical prediction rules” which in general, are usually made up of combinations of things the patient says and findings from exams. In a large study, data from about 20,000 patients receiving about 29,000 treatments, was collected and analyzed to find out what complaints responded well to chiropractic treatment.  The results showed that the presence of any 4 of these 7 presenting complaints predicted an immediate improvement in 70-95% of the patients: (more…)

How To Prevent A ‘Heart Attack Grill’-Like Incident

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Did you hear? Fox News reported about a man who suffered a heart attack while dining at a popular Las Vegas restaurant and the restaurant is called Heart Attack Grill.

Irony, you call it? Coincidence? Or was it a series of choices that led to an impactful wake-up call for this man? Luckily the paramedics arrived in time to help this man and reports say he is alive.

More then likely this wasn’t due to a one-time meal at a high-calorie restaurant but due to a series of choices that culminated in a traumatic and life-threatening incident.

At our clinic, Back To Health Chiropractic Centre, we teach about choices at our wellness workshops and lectures. I tell our patients that the choices you make today in life will shape your future.  And if you want to live a life of your dreams and vision, the choices you make today absolutely matter.  So you owe it to yourself to make the right choices for your health and your well-being, not just for now but for the rest of your life.

Saturday, February 11th, 2012

Mom and Child 150x150 The Top 10 Reasons For Your Child To Have A Chiropractic Check UpMaple (Vaughan), Ontario - It is common for people to seek treatment from chiropractors for low back pain, neck pain, headaches or even injuries from work and car accidents.  These are conditions that are mostly seen in adults.   Since a child will not typically complain of low back pain, neck pain or headaches, the parents may never see a reason to get their child checked by a chiropractor for a well exam or a spinal / posture check-up.   However, regardless of any pain or symptom, a child may have spinal misalignments or posture displacements that could be putting strain on their nervous system.  Since the nervous system controls and co-ordinates every function of the body, it’s imperative that the nervous system remains as stress-free as possible for optimal health, optimal growth and optimal body function.

Consider this … spinal misalignments can occur at any time throughout the child’s growth, development and life.

Here are the 10 top reasons for your child to have a chiropractic check-up:
