Feeling stuck in your life, and not yet reached personal fulfillment? A chiropractic adjustment might be what you need to give you a needed nudge in the right direction. Be inspired from the hot topics from new chiropractic research below.

Increase Your Creativity with Chiropractic
In most cases, most of us will schedule an appointment with the chiropractor when we are feeling aches and pains in our back, or neck. However, did you know that a chiropractic adjustment might be just what you need to take your creativity to the next level?

Researchers in Australia have discovered a trend suggesting that this could be a fact.

Ten subjects were recruited for a study; their ages ranged from 10 to 62. Nine out of ten were currently involved in a task that included some form of creative thinking. Seven of the subjects were also experiencing some musculoskeletal symptoms, and three people reported some stress, or stress-related symptoms at the time of the study.

All subjects were tested before and after chiropractic adjustments using the alternate uses test – a tool used to measure divergent thinking, a component of creative thinking.

Results: Six out of the ten subjects experienced improvements in their performance on the alternate uses test. Responses from post-adjustment interviews showed that a majority of the study subjects experienced renewed energy for their creative project, plus a tendency to implement a new direction for a the creative task as well.

Increased Performance from Chiropractic Adjustments
Does improved alignment contribute to increased performance? Let us answer that with this next study.

According to an elite athlete, his chiropractic experience was undeniably positive. The results speak for themselves! The athlete in the study was a 50-year old male race walker that was undergoing chiropractic adjustments, while preparing for a world-class event.

Prior to chiropractic intervention, this athlete held several state and national records in this endurance sport for various distances – including the 10 km national record and the 15 km state record.

The treatment included chiropractic adjustments to the spine to correct identified subluxations, and also adjustments to both legs to improve mobility and alignment of his tibiofemoral joints.

Results: Four days after the first chiropractic session, he recorded his personal best (PB) in the 15 km distance (better than the current state record, established by him 1 year previously).

Two more treatments were administered during the month prior to the World Masters event, and two more PB times were recorded – this time in the 5 km and 10 km distance events (parts taken from: www.creativehealing.ca).

This report suggests that chiropractic care can be used for more than just aches and pains.

Benefits with Pediatric Chiropractic

Benefits with Pediatric Chiropractic

Benefits with Pediatric Chiropractic - Nachmias ChiropracticPediatric chiropractic is extremely safe if you make sure to visit an experienced chiropractor, like Dr. Adam Nachmias – Nachmias Chiropractic. The main difference adjusting a child is that the contacts need to be smaller and the thrust more shallow with less force.

Children have the same joints as adults, but they are not yet fully formed. Their joints are still more cartilaginous than truly bony, so the adjustments have to be a little bit faster, but with less force. This is due to the increased flexibility within the joint and the smaller surface area you are targeting. Another option with children in certain cases is to mobilize joints rather than manipulating them.

Chiropractors have the lowest malpractice rates of all primary health care providers in the country, and those rates are based on risk.

Chiropractic Treatment of Chronic Ear Infections in Children

One of the most common reasons parents bring their children to the chiropractor is for management of chronic ear infections.

How can a chiropractor treat ear infections you may think?
Let us explain this process as easy to understand as possible. When a child develops ear infections, the biggest issue is that fluid is getting trapped in the middle ear cavity, creating a breeding ground for bacteria and viruses.

Medically, you normally use an antibiotic to kill the bacteria and viruses, but that does nothing about the fluid buildup.

The reason to fluids building up is when the muscles surrounding the Eustachian tubes are spasming, this reaction can close down the tube’s opening and not allow the fluids to drain.

What Dr. Adam Nachmias does to prevent chronic ear infections is to stop those muscles from spasming, and allow the fluids to drain freely from the Eustachian tubes.

In fact, there is a good reason to heal ear infections in children naturally through chiropractic adjustments. Namely, because of the large amount of pediatric patients that got treated with antibiotics (about 585,000 patients in 2009) required medical attention.

Chiropractic Care Beneficial for Other Disorders and Pain Symptoms

Chiropractic has also been shown to help childhood developmental disorders and syndromes, like cerebral palsy, ADHD, autism, post-stroke, down syndrome etc.

By adjusting subluxations (blockages) of the spine, the nervous system can flow freely and function at its best, allowing the body to reach its fullest potential, and improve quality of life for the child.

There is no legitimate scientific proof of chiropractic for developmental disorders, but parents to children with these disorders have announced an improvement in their child’s behavior (parts taken from: www.acatoday.org).

Make sure your child gets a good start in life. Visit Dr. Adam Nachmias – Nachmias Chiropractic for a chiropractic exam and consultation. We will treat your child like it was ours, and promise you that he/she will be in excellent hands. Dr. Adam has more than 26 years experience in pediatric chiropractic.

Living with Adult Scoliosis and Treatment Options

Living with Adult Scoliosis and Treatment Options - Nachmias ChiropracticLiving with Scoliosis is not easy. However, depending on the severity and location of pain, degenerative scoliosis in adults can be treated with one or more non-surgical options, and the absolute best option is chiropractic care. Let us break this statement down further.

What is Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine. The spine is naturally designed with three curves, creating an “S” shape from the side. An adult person with scoliosis will have a lateral (side-to-side) curve, greater than 10 degrees, which often results in an “S” or “C” shape from the front or rear view of the body.

This curve is not always detectable to the eye, but you can notice scoliosis through noticeably uneven shoulders, waist or hips, a rib hump or, prominence of the lower back on the side with the curvature.

Symptoms of Scoliosis
In most cases symptoms of scoliosis start with low back pain. Later on, the increased pressure on nerves, due to the scoliotic curve, can lead to weakness, numbness and pain in the lower extremities. Severe cases of scoliosis can result in the loss of coordination and mobility.

What are the Goals of Non-Surgical Treatments for Scoliosis?
Most adults with degenerative scoliosis do not need surgery. The goals of non-surgical treatments are to:

  • Reduce pain.
  • Increase strength
  • Improve posture.
  • Increase flexibility and range of motion.

Different Types of Scoliosis Curves and Causes:

  • Idiopathic Curve: This is the most common type of scoliosis. Often there is no clear cause of the spinal curve.
  • Congenital Curve: “Congenital” means the spinal abnormality was present at birth. These cases are rare and typically diagnosed in childhood. See prior article: Chiropractic is the Answer to Treat Scoliosis in Children.
  • Paralytic Curve: This curve is often the result of a spinal cord injury. Paralytic curve means that the muscles around the spine do not work, which in turn can cause abnormal curvatures of the spine.
  • Myopathic Deformity: Similar to paralytic, myopathic means that the muscles do not work properly. This can result in atypical curves in the spine caused by conditions such as muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy or polio.
  • Secondary Scoliosis: Includes other spinal conditions that affect the vertebrae, such as degeneration, osteoporosis and osteomalacia, and that can cause scoliosis.Spinal surgery can also result in an imbalance in the spine, leading to a scoliosis diagnosis.

You can treat some of the pain symptoms with pain killers, like Ibuprofen, or other medications that treat inflammation from arthritis, epidural or facet injections.

Your Best Treatment Option – Chiropractic Care
However, the healthier and more effective treatment method is chiropractic care. Chiropractic adjustments and spinal manipulations can by an experienced chiropractor, like Dr. Adam Nachmias – Nachmias Chiropractic, keep the facet joints mobile and help reduce pain.

Chiropractic cannot reverse scoliosis, but the improvement of joint mobility from adjustments can decrease pain, increase comfort and improve posture. Chiropractors can also address other symptoms or, issues the patient may be experiencing, and help prevent further degradation of the spine (parts taken from: spine-health.com & chiroone.net).

Unfortunately, many people with scoliosis believe that they are stuck with this painful condition and that there is nothing to do about it. Others have even adapted to the pain.

You do not need to despair and suffer, because there is help to get. Dr. Adam Nachmias –  Nachmias Chiropractic is here for you! He will not only relieve you from pain, but also improve your posture so you can feel less self conscious, and better about your appearance.

Furthermore, during Dr. Adam Nachmias’s years as a professional chiropractor he found a genetic link to Scoliosis in families. If there is an immediate family member (i.e. parents, children, brothers or, sisters) that suffers from scoliosis, you should get examined too. There is a chance that you may have scoliosis as well.

Chiropractic is the Answer to Treat Scoliosis in Children - Nachmias Chiropractic

Recent research has shown that children with scoliosis and curvatures of the spine experienced huge improvements after undergoing chiropractic treatments.

The study from the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health – Chiropractic was performed on 36 children with scoliosis.

“Research is revealing that there is a relationship between abnormalities in the spine, the nervous system and structural abnormalities such as scoliosis” stated Matthew McCoy DC, MPH, a chiropractor, public health researcher and editor of the journal that published the study. McCoy continued “What makes this study unique and interesting is that it is the largest research study of scoliosis involving chiropractic adjustments as the sole intervention”. 

According to the authors of the study the prevalence of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is estimated to be within 2-3% in children aged 10-16.

If scoliosis goes untreated it may lead to following conditions and symptoms:

  • Curve progression
  • Loss of pulmonary function
  • Increased overall mortality
  • Increased mortality in women due to cancer
  • Increased prevalence of self-reported arthritis
  • Negative perception of ones health
  • Increased difficulty in basic physical tasks
  • More days of limitation due to sickness, injury, and other health problems, and
  • Increased prevalence and intensity of back pain

In conclusion, scoliosis can affect a person’s long-term state of health and well-being when not treated.

What Causes Scoliosis?
Several factors are thought to contribute to the cause of idiopathic scoliosis, including genetic, neuromuscular, hormonal, and biochemical causes. The eventual result of these causes is an abnormal curving of the spine, which can be harmful to your health.

Scoliosis can also be very painful. The earlier small curves are corrected, the less likely they may progress to more serious curves.

The spinal nerve interference can lead to all sorts of dysfunction and this is certainly true with scoliosis, and other spinal curvatures.

“Considering the fact that every single function of the body is controlled by the nervous system it should not surprise anyone that removing interference to the neurology that controls the muscles and joints of the spine would lead to improvement in the curves” remarked Dr. McCoy.

Nerve interferences are what chiropractors call subluxations, and that is what
Dr. Adam Nachmias – Nachmias Chiropractic specializes in adjusting (removing) on a daily basis.

Dr. Adam has helped so many people with scoliosis and curvatures of the spine for more than 26 years to live pain free, healthy lives.

During his years as a professional chiropractor he found a genetic link to Scoliosis in families. If there is an immediate family member (i.e. parents, children, brothers or, sisters) that suffers from scoliosis, you should get examined too. There is a chance that you may have scoliosis as well.

Reduction in Frequency & Severity of Erectile Dysfunction and Chronic Low Back Pain in 53-Year-Old with Chiropractic

Reduction in Frequency & Severity of Erectile Dysfunction and Chronic Low Back Pain in 53-Year-Old with Chiropractic

Reduction in Frequency & Severity of Erectile Dysfunction and Chronic Low Back Pain in 53-Year-Old with ChiropracticMost men, at some point in their lives, will experience erectile dysfunction. According to the “Merck Manual for Healthcare Professionals, at least 10 to 20 million men in the U.S. suffer from erectile dysfunction.

Causes of Erectile Dysfunction
The cause of erectile dysfunction can be both physical and emotional. It can be as simple as a side effect from a medication, stress, relationship issues, or be a sign of an underlying health condition like; diabetes or heart disease. Apart from psychological causes of erectile dysfunction, these are some possible physical causes:

  • heart disease
  • diabetes
  • high blood pressure
  • high cholesterol
  • low testosterone levels
  • metabolic syndrome
  • obesity
  • multiple sclerosis
  • excessive alcohol consumption
  • pelvic subluxations

Chiropractic adjustments helped a 53-year old man that was partaking in a case study (see below) by Howard & Harry Hadley, both B.A., D.C. Undergoing a series of adjustments resulted in improved erectile function. The adjustments also made him pain-free from low back pain.


Abstract

Objective
To record the improvements seen in a 53-year-old male patient with a history of erectile dysfunction and chronic lower back pain.

Clinical Features
The man first presented for chiropractic care with a chief complaint of lower back pain. He had a 20 year history of low back pain and erectile dysfunction, initially disclosing only the low back pain. Chiropractic examination revealed the presence of vertebral and pelvic subluxations.

Interventions and Outcomes
Each visit included the use of instrumentation, static palpation, motion palpation, and visualization to accurately determine when and where subluxations were present. Chiropractic adjustments utilizing Gonstead methodology were performed whenever corrections were found necessary.

Gonstead methodology is characterized by its specific hands-on adjusting of only the offending segments of the spine and extremities. Accuracy is all important to the Gonstead chiropractor.

After eight weeks of care (12 adjustments) the patient was pain-free and able to exercise comfortably. He continued care for a chronic lumbar subluxation and was able to experience improved erectile function as well.


Conclusion
Chiropractic adjustments utilizing Gonstead methodology has been shown to effectively reduce the effects of vertebral subluxation. This has allowed the patient to live without chronic pain and experience improved erectile function
