How can  Chiropractor Help you if you live in Green Bay ?

Before I begin, let me give you a little insight to where my perspective on the healing comes from. By training, I’m a scientist. I am really good at looking at issues critically and deciphering facts and problems based on factual evidence and sound theories. At the same time, I always had an interest in alternative medicine and while I lived in Seattle for 5 years, I had the chance to experience directly and learn various healing modalities such as naturopathic physician care,  acupuncture, homeopathy, chiropractic in Green Bay.

Arm Pain

Some of my knowledge comes from being the inquisitive patient, some comes from discussions with students of Bastyr College of Naturopathic medicine who I befriended while in Seattle.  While in Green Bay I also took several classes on Reiki, and became a Reiki Master/Teacher and hence I have the insiders perspective on how energy healing works and what it can and can’t do. I am a strong advocate of alternative therapies in conjunction with or sometimes instead of traditional medicine. However, recently, I have been really bothered by practices of chiropractor (some not all) and I feel that there are many out there that take advantage of the general lack of understanding of how the human body works in patients to keep their businesses going.

Chiropractic Adjustment Many people wonder are chiropractors doctors and what do they do? Chiropractors are required to attend medical school for three years and earn a doctorate degree. This is the same degree dentists and doctors have. Chiropractors study medication and therapy while in school and typically focus on treating problems with the joints and spine. Every state requires chiropractors to obtain a license before they can practice. The same department handles licensing for all physicians. These professionals use x-rays to diagnose problems and are responsible for devising and implementing a treatment protocol for the patient. Some treatments involve manipulation of the joints and the back. Chiropractors offer alternative treatments for back pain that are noninvasive and less risky that surgery. Many health insurance policies will cover chiropractic care. There are certain neuromuscular conditions that will not respond to chiropractic medicine. In some cases, doctors and chiropractors will work together to come up with a suitable treatment for a patient. A chiropractor can offer patients more options when it comes to nontraditional treatments. Alternative treatments may be incorporated into the program to speed the patient's recovery. D.D. Palmer introduced chiropractic medicine in the late 17th century in Iowa. At the time, there were many people practicing medicine that had no experience and were making all kinds of promises to people about special elixirs and alternative treatment methods. Palmer's first school opened in 1895 and his son carried on in his father's footsteps. Unscientific treatment methods were abandoned and many doctors at that time were actually in agreement with chiropractors. To this day, chiropractic medicine is shunned in some medical circles and there are many patients who are missing out on treatments that can help because their doctors will not refer them to a chiropractor. Much of the friction between the professions disappeared when a chiropractor won a lawsuit against the American Medical Association during the 1908s. The AMA was found to have conspired to prevent chiropractors from practicing their trade using illegal restraint of trade practices. Since then various chiropractic organizations stay vigilant for libelous statements that can hurt the industry. So, the short answer to the question is, yes. Chiropractors are indeed doctors and many patients benefit from various treatments they will only get in a chiropractor's office. Anyone with back and joint problems can seek the advice of a local chiropractor and find a treatment protocol that suits their individual needs. Herniated Disc Surgery

However, recently, I have been really bothered by practices of chiropractors (some not all) and I feel that there are many out there that take advantage of the general lack of understanding of how the human body works in patients to keep their businesses going. I write this article with the goal to educate moms on the good, the bad, and the ugly associated with chiropractic care, especially as many chiropractors now advocate for 'maintenance care' not only for adults but also for children. As you will see below, I do believe that chiropractic adjustments can be very useful, especially when they are performed as part of the whole body healing, but unfortunately, when done in isolation, chiropractic adjustments often only set you up on a path of going, and going, and going back to your chiropractor for more treatments, rather than getting well. The work of a chiropractor is to manipulate the spine to remove misalignments. Misalignments in the spine are often referred to as subluxations. Traditional chiropractic philosophy is based on the belief that misalignments in the spine are the root cause of illness. Hence they remove the misalignments in the spine with the hope that the illness will go away as well. The idea behind this theory is that all body organs are connected to the spine through nerves. If there is misalignment in the spine, it will cause a problem with the nerves and then other organs connected to them. If you consider long term chiropractic care for yourself or your family, be sure that this theory of all illness originating from spine misalignments resonates with you. It doesn't with me. Here is why. The spine connects to joints, then to muscles and ligaments that support the spine and its structure. If there is a problem within the spine, the muscles in the close proximity to the spine misalignment (and often not only in that region) will also be affected. Typically some muscles will become overly tight and some will become weak, as muscles work in pairs. This is what's commonly referred to a muscle imbalance. In addition to the musculoskeletal system in your body, there is a biochemical system, and an emotional system. The biochemical system includes your blood chemistry, hormones, vitamins, minerals, and hence this system is vital to your well-being. Emotions, including moods and attitudes have also been shown to contribute to and to aid illnesses. The musculoskeletal, the biochemical, and the emotional systems within our body are very intimately connected to create our well-being or sickness. If we become ill, all of these systems will be affected and disease will manifest in all. I think it's naive to believe that all disease starts from the spine. For example, if you never go out in the sun and eventually become Vitamin D deficient, it is likely that you will develop problems in your spine since Vitamin D deficiency leads to muscles weakness. This in turn will likely lead to spine misalignments. Similarly, severe emotional trauma, never addressed properly, over time may lead to sickness which will likely cause some spine misalignment. I believe that it's correct to say that most illness will manifest itself in the spine, but that is not the same as saying that all illness originates in the spine. One thing to keep in mind is that the somewhat simplistic philosophy behind chiropractic and illness was developed at time when people had no choice but to eat minimally processed foods from local sources, before there were any chemicals in the environment, and at a time before drugs, vaccinations, and other environmental factors were impacting our health. In our modern society, there are other factors that contribute to creating illness, which must be addressed. In my opinion, removing the cause of the illness is the best approach for curing it. Finding the cause of the illness is often the tricky part. This is where a doctor with a broad range of expertise and education is most helpful. Ideally, the physician you pick as your doctor is familiar with how disease manifests itself in the musculoskeletal system, as well as in the biochemical and emotional system. Such a physician can best determine how to get all these systems back into balance. Chiropractic treatments have the best chance of curing problems most directly related to disturbances in the musculoskeletal system of the body. Many joint, and muscle pains can be aided by chiropractic manipulation. The question is, whether the pain will stay away. If the treatment is for an injury such as back pain due to someone lifting a heavy object in awkward manner, one to several chiropractic adjustments will usually get rid of the pain for good. The reason is that the cause of the pain was the spinal misalignment, and once removed, the patient is usually pain free.What about chronic pain though? Moms often develop neck and shoulder pain from nursing and carrying their children. Lower back pain and sciatica are also quite common. All chiropractors happily address these conditions, but how they are addressed varies greatly between chiropractors.It is a very common chiropractic practice to manipulate the spine to try to get it back to its proper alignment, and ask the patient to come back multiple times in a week, often for long periods of time. The reason for the multiple return visits is not addressing the cause of the spine misalignment. If the cause of the problem is not removed, few hours to a few days after the adjustment, the spine slowly returns to its previous state. Why? Because the muscles that are tight are pulling it in the direction of previous misalignment and the weak muscles can't support the corrected structure. So the patient goes back to the chiropractor, and the process is repeated. 5, 10, 20, 40, sometimes 60 times, usually 1 to 3 times a week over a course of weeks. Then once a week, then once a month. After all those adjustments, it is possible that the muscles over time slowly adapt into the new corrected shape from the repeated adjustments, but typically if treatment is stopped, the spine will go back to the misalignment as the cause of the problem was never addressed by the chiropractic practitioner. Many moms I know have chronic neck or lower back pain, and all feel better after visiting a chiropractor. The problem is that they need to keep seeing the chiropractor in order to feel better.The underlying reason for chronic pain is often postural patterns (such as forward rounded shoulders from computer use) and muscle imbalances (strong quadriceps and weak hamstrings in runners or after pregnancy). That's only part of the picture though. Spine misalignment can also be caused by and exacerbated by a food allergy, such as dairy intolerance, or vitamin deficiency. The misalignments due to these factors can be as severe as from chronic postural patterns. Chiropractic adjustments will keep making the patient feel better after every adjustment, however if the cause is never addressed, the problem will keep coming back. In these examples, it would make most sense to address the cause of the illness (vitamin D deficiency or dairy intolerance) rather than the symptom (spine misalignment) Back Problems

 

Can a Chiropractic help with Treatment of Hip Pain?

We've all been there before: trying to choose between a list of potential businesses or professionals with very little of substance to go on. Most of the time we rely on online reviews, glances at web pages, and if we are lucky we may know someone who has been to that business already and can tell you what to expect. Going to a chiropractor is an important decision, even more so because many people do not know much about chiropractic to start with. What little they do know may very well be wrong. Some consider chiropractors quite poorly and are skeptical of the profession. Some are open to seeing a chiropractor but have no friends or family to steer them to the right person, and have no experience with chiropractic that would make an Internet search easier. It helps when you know the "language" of something because your Google search will be much more fruitful when you use the right terminology. Using broad terms often will net you nothing more than a list of chiropractors who do a lot of advertising and who fill their websites with keywords just to attract visitors via Google. Choosing a chiropractor is in many ways a very personal decision. With so many types of DC's out there that means that you can probably find one tailored to your needs. This article will outline how to conduct a good search that will show you all the local chiropractors and allow you to tell them apart so that you can make the best choice.1. Are you going to a chiropractor simply for pain relief, or for general health? You can loosely separate chiropractors into two groups: holistic chiropractors and mechanistic chiropractors. All chiropractors know of this distinction, and in fact the profession has been in a general state of low-level internal conflict along this fault line since its inception. Some chiropractors know this as a war of "straights vs. mixers". The internal conflict, which actually has many positive benefits, has been ongoing since the start of the profession in 1895. This duality is a strength of the profession: without the holistic character of chiropractic we would be physical therapists who adjust the spine, and without the mechanistic character of chiropractic we would lose sight of the very real benefits to health that chiropractic care provides millions of Americans every year, and the real detrimental effects of spinal joint malfunction (subluxation).2. Do you want long-term care or would you prefer to have your complaint treated and then have your case closed? Many chiropractors, with varying degrees of scientific evidence to back this up, promote chiropractic as a viable alternative to traditional healthcare. They view chiropractic as a way to foster the health of your nervous system through chiropractic spinal adjustments, which then allows the body to function at a higher level. Chiropractors and patients all over the country will attest to improved health with less illness and injury after they incorporated chiropractic into their lives. Regular adjustments help adults and children cope with everything from allergies to headaches, and people who want to avoid prescription medication often choose chiropractic instead. Hard scientific proof to validate this is difficult to come by due to inherent problems in designing a study capable of testing the "chiropractic lifestyle" and its effect on general health, but case series' exist and we've likely all met someone who will swear up and down that chiropractic is keeping them out of the doctor's office. On the flip side of this coin are chiropractors that will work to promote proper joint function at the injured area and then rehabilitate the joint and supporting soft tissue, after which they will release you from care. There is a value in this, just as there is a value in wellness or maintenance care. Releasing a patient after their pain is gone will save the patient money. It will also please the patient's health insurer - not that your insurer's happiness should ever be a factor in making health decisions, but unfortunately they hold power over your health in some very important ways so there is a value in not ending up in anyone's crosshair at your insurer's corporate headquarters. Rather than promote continuing care, a mechanistic chiropractor will work to correct the immediate problem only. Many times back pain may stem from a weak ankle or knee, so your chiropractor may very well focus on a spot that isn't painful, so do not assume the location of your pain is the cause of your pain. A fundamental difference between holistic and mechanistic chiropractors is that the holistic chiropractor will treat the patient beyond the scientific limitations a more mechanistic chiropractor would self-impose.

Lumbar Spine Green Bay

Chiropractic spinal traction therapy in Green Bay is a method of stretching and mobilizing the spine using hands-on or mechanic force. Alleviation in pain is sought with therapeutic spinal traction by loosening tight and/or constricted muscles around the spine, and to help decompress intervertebral discs in order to relieve pressure on the spinal nerve roots, which is a major cause of back and spine related pain. As with other chiropractic treatments, spinal traction may or may not help alleviate your pain, often times with chiropractic treatment what works on one patient may not be right for others. Your chiropractor will evaluate your condition and determine if traction, and in what form, is right for you.

Back Pain Treatment Chiropractors are health care professionals who prevent and treat spinal injuries. The main principle of chiropractic is to maintain the coordination between the brain and the nervous system, where the functions of the body are sent through the spinal cord and the vertebrae. One of the most prominent procedures performed by this branch of health care is joint manipulation or more commonly termed "joint adjustment." Though it is a popular procedure for chiropractors, it is argued to have no long-term effects compared to the use of other methods of treatments. The American Medical Association (AMA) did not recognize Chiropractic care for years. In fact, the practice has been referred to as "the committee of quackery." Chiropractor critics often disagree with manipulation of the spinal cord as part of the methodology of the practice. They express a great concern about possible severe injuries caused by this manipulation, especially the rotary cervical or neck manipulation wherein a wrong twist has resulted in trauma, paralysis, strokes and death of the patient. Although many professionals in the medical field s still believe that the methods used by chiropractors are unscientific, chiropractic is growing in popularity. In fact, you see many chiropractors' offices in malls and in gyms. If you are a health conscious, the advice of a chiropractor will appeal to you, because they emphasize a healthy lifestyle, rather than relying on prescribed medicines or surgeries. Chiropractors use treatments that are considered alternative noninvasive health care practices, and treatments for the back, neck, joints and other extremities are more accepted by the public nowadays.

Which are 5 Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment?

Many people choose to seek chiropractic when they have a pain not only in their back, but any part of their body. If you are looking for an alternative to traditional medication and surgery, you may want to consider seeking help from a chiropractor. Throughout your life, you may feel some aches and pains. Many choose to go to the doctor who may then prescribe some medication or recommend over the counter remedies to mask the symptoms by relieving the pain. While others may choose to suffer through, hoping it will stop soon; many others choose to undergo chiropractic care, believing that the body can heal itself with the help of a professional. With proper alignment of the skeletal structure, the nervous system can function properly; relieve you of painful symptoms and health issues. The chiropractor uses his or her hands to restructure the vertebrae. Many people's bones on the spine are not correctly structured, thereby resulting in subluxation. This can cause pain not only in the back, but also in other parts of the body. Misalignment of the spine can interfere with the nervous and vascular systems, causing an array of issues including pain, digestive disturbances and weakness. More and more people are undergoing chiropractic care as an alternative therapy. It has become so popular that many times it is covered under some insurance plans. If you are interested in the procedure, contact your insurance company to make sure the procedure is covered. More and more people are using it for pain and problems in the spine and lower back. Others have even used it to cure ear infections or colic in infants, as well as headaches. During the first consultation period, the doctor will begin with a chiropractic exam. He or she will ask you questions pertaining to your medical history. The doctor will also ask the patient to explain where they feel pain and whether there are long lasting health problems and a history of disease. They may even ask you about your dietary habits and any medication you may take. If you know how the injury occurred, this is the time to tell the doctor so that he or she can properly diagnose the problem. Many professionals use x-ray machines during the initial visit also. They will then start the procedure by manipulating the spine, which may produce a painless popping sound. This will normally help the joints. The patient will lie on a special table when this is occurring, to help the practitioner place the patient in proper positions. They may also try some stretching techniques. Generally you will need longer term treatment if your pain is chronic or severe or attached to a health problem. If you are in poor health then the recovery time can be long also. The doctor will discharge you and will follow up with you to insure that there are not huge risks or complications. The doctor will also ask you to do some exercises and may have you to use heat or ice packs when you are at home. If performed correctly, chiropractic treatment can do wonders if a person is suffering from certain ailments. If you are interested in some alternative medicines, then why not try chiropractic procedures from a professional who you can trust. Neck And Shoulder Pain

Can a Chiropractor Help People With Pinched Nerve?

For those with tinnitus one thing is universally true, they would do just about anything to make the high pitched whining in their ears go away. Most doctors will tell you there is no cure for tinnitus; this is based on the fact that their treatments for this condition end in limited success, and for many people do not help at all. This does not mean that there is no cure for tinnitus, as much as that your average doctor may not hold the answer to your particular tinnitus problem. Tinnitus and chiropractic treatments are just one example of an alternative treatment that may hold promise for at least some tinnitus sufferers. Tinnitus and Chiropractic The truth is that there are so many different causes for tinnitus that not all tinnitus will be solved with the same treatments. What works for one person will not necessarily work for another, much depends on what is causing your tinnitus and sadly there is little research and therapies that can help you to determine this beyond seeing if your tinnitus is caused by hearing loss. For most people the best approach is one of persistence and trying various therapies until one or more of them work. One of the biggest mistakes most people make is they are so desperate to find a cure for the ringing in their ears that they hop around from one therapy to another much too quickly making the mistake of thinking that if they do not work in the first week or two they are not going to help at all. This is where knowledge and patience can really help, many treatments, chiropractic among them take time to work. The theory behind chiropractic is to reverse the subluxations in your spine that can reduce blood flow and impair nerves, since research has found that both of these conditions are thought to contribute to tinnitus; chiropractic has been shown for offer great improvement for many of those suffering from ringing in the ears. What About Those with Hearing Loss? If you have been told that hearing loss is the cause of your tinnitus and that there is nothing that you can do about it, do not give up searching for solutions. There is some research being done now, which indicates that tinnitus may not be so much a symptom of hearing loss for some, as it may make them more sensitive to, and more aware of the tinnitus as they strain to hear and become more aware of the sounds emanating from their ears. Chiropractors have found that the same treatments that help patients without hearing loss often help those with hearing loss. Often times there are many underlying causes for the ringing in your ears and addressing each one of these causes can help you have the best results for dealing with your condition. Does Chiropractic work for Everyone? Chiropractic for tinnitus is no miracle cure; it merely resolves one of the possible pathways by which many people's tinnitus may occur. It will certainly improve the blood flow and the communication of the nerves to the brain but if there are other underlying causes for the ringing in your ears chances are it will not make it go away completely. In other words chiropractics cannot hurt but may not always help as much as you expect it to. That is not to say you should give up on it, but perhaps you need to look further, try other remedies in addition to this one, as part of a complete solution to the ringing in your ears.
