The Secret of Chiropractic

The Secret of Chiropractic

The Secret of Chiropractic - Nachmias Chiropractic Tells You the Truth

What is the secret of chiropractic you may wonder? How is it that the demand for a chiropractor is consistently increasing? That is exactly what we will tell you in this issue.

The answer lies in the power of chiropractic adjustments. Our days are filled with micro-stresses – meaning stresses placed upon our bodies that negatively affect how we function. These stresses can slowly wear down our body’s immunity – leaving us susceptible to disease and injury.

Let us present some actions that often cause micro-injuries, which potentially can lead to more severe injuries:

  1. Sitting down at a computer desk most of the day. This is actually the worst scenario for the body. It is not made for sitting down a whole day and the sitting position puts enormous pressure on the spine.
  2. Repeating a single motion several times throughout the day.
  3. Lifting heavy objects without thinking of correct lifting posture and bending the knees. Have a look at our Back Care Program to see how to properly lift objects:

Chiropractic adjustments prevent these severe injuries by correcting the cause of micro-injuries before they become severe.

Furthermore, chiropractic adjustments also increase immunity (that in turn can fight illness, allergies, stress, depression, insomnia etc.), physical performance, and eliminate pain.

What Happens During A Chiropractic Adjustment?

Micro-injuries cause the bones in the body to get locked up or fixated, which limits our range of motion. The bones remain locked up or hypomobile when we move and bend which can cause pain. During the adjustments your chiropractor applies light pressure to the joints to free up the vertebra and restore motion.

Also, the joints above and below the hypomobile joint get compromised as well. They will bend too much in trying to compensate for the immobile joints. This is called hypermobile. By restoring motion to the joints that are locked up, chiropractors restore health and function to the body.

Why the Popping Sound? What Is It?

The “popping sound” that can be heard during chiropractic adjustments is the release of three types of gasses; oxygen, nitrogen and CO2. They create the sound when they are opening up the joint. In fact, it is very similar to the effect of removing the cork from a champagne bottle and just as pleasant.

When the gasses are released, the fluid within the joints lubricates the joint surfaces restoring movement and nerve function. The same thing happens when one of the joints in your fingers is locked up and you crack your knuckles. You hear a ‘pop’ and you feel instant relief (source: fulkchiropractic.com).

Conclusion the Secret of Chiropractic

The secret with chiropractic is the fantastic health benefits chiropractic adjustments bring to the table. A chiropractic treatment is a non-invasive way of treating the cause of common symptoms. Why go under the knife when you can heal your body naturally?

More and more people are discovering this and stay faithful to their chiropractors. Patients who experience chiropractic care are also quick to recommend the treatment to friends and family. As more and more people experience the benefits of chiropractic, the demand for this natural form of healthcare continues to rise.

Patients Are Amazed How Good They Feel After A Treatment!

Depending on how long your joints have been locked up and how severe the injury determines how quickly you will feel relief, but most people feel better right away.

The saying goes “health is wealth”, so treasure your health while you have it. Protect it, and prevent injuries by allowing your body to heal itself.

Painful Menstrual Cycles – PMS & Dysmenorrhea – Chiropractic Can Help!

Painful Menstrual Cycles – PMS & Dysmenorrhea – Chiropractic Can Help!

Painful Menstrual Cycles - PMS & Dysmenorrhea – Chiropractic Can Help! Nachmias ChiropracticEvery month, the female body goes through a series of changes that serve to prepare it for a possible preg­nancy. For all women, hormone levels go through a series of peaks and valleys in a 28-day cycle (on average). It is precisely coordinated with only one end result in mind: to create and birth a child.

 

The 3 main processes of the menstrual cycle are:

  1. Ovula­tion
  2. Fertilization
  3. Implantation

When everything goes as planned, each month an egg (ovum) is released from the ovary. The uterus prepares for a potentially-fertilized egg to be implanted in its nutrient-thick walls.

It takes about three days for the ovum to make its way through the fallopian tubes (during which time it may be fertilized by sperm) and into the uterus, where the actively dividing group of cells is to be implanted.

If fertilization does not occur within this window of time, the brain and body receive signals to start this cycle all over again. As this happens, the inner lining of the uterus is released, trigger­ing the bleeding stage of the menstrual cycle, which typically lasts about three to seven days. This process is though on the female body in a number of ways.

What Is Dysmenorrhea and PMS?

Even though the menstrual cycle is a natural physiological phenomenon, it can be extremely painful for some women – both physically and emotionally.

When a woman experiences severe physical pain and cramping during the menstrual cycle, she is diagnosed with dysmenorrhea. However, if she experiences a combination of physical and emotional symptoms just prior to the onset of menses, then she often gets diagnosed with pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS).

Up to 90% of all young women are estimated to experience some form of dysmenorrhea. Another 75% to 85% of females will suffer from various degrees of PMS during their lifetime. Women have to suffer a lot in regards to menstrual cycles.

How Can Chiropractic Help PMS & Dysmenorrhea?

If you are a woman, you know how painful menstrual cycles can be. Often, we accept the pain and emotional suffering as being a “normal” state, and are just trying to suffer it through until the next cycle, when we in fact not have to!

Low back pain and stomach cramps are a common combo during menses. The back pain is often displaced pain from the reproductive organs and these organs depend upon a healthy nervous supply from the lower spinal column. If the nerves threads between the reproductive organs and the spine are somehow blocked, it can lead to menstrual pain, cramping, and irregularities.

Putting the lower spine back into proper alignment with chiropractic adjustments will relieve the pressure on these nerves going to the reproductive organs, relieving both menstrual and lower back pain.

A healthy nervous system boosts the overall immune system. It also ensures that the body can cope with emotional difficulties like PMS, stress, and depression, since it allows for a proper serotonin release.

Evidence Supporting Chiropractic Care for Problematic Menstrual Cycles

Most medical practitioners suggest anti- inflammatory or analgesic medications to help ease the pain caused by these problems. This will only reduce the pain symptoms temporarily, but does not continuously help your menstrual cycles get easier.

Anti-inflammatory medications can also come with other unwanted side effects, such as even more stomach pain due to a reaction to strong chemicals.

A recent study of 13 female chiropractic patients with dysmenorrhea got helped using a specific chiropractic technique referred to as the drop-table method. Over two menstrual cycles, subjects received three treat­ments per cycle, specifically adjusting spinal restrictions in the lumbosacral area of the spine.

They all responded favorably to treatment, with significant reductions in back pain and general abdominal pain (sources: up-chiro.com & horst-chiropractic.com).

Can Allergies Be Treated with Chiropractic Care?

Can Allergies Be Treated with Chiropractic Care?

Can Allergies Be Treated with Chiropractic Care? Nachmias Chiropractic

This time of year can be difficult for many allergy sufferers. Instead of enjoying the warmth and sunny days, people with allergies have to deal with runny noses, itchy eyes and sneezing. If you want to find out how you can get allergy relief – continue reading.  

Hay fever erupts this time of year. Millions of people suffer from this condi­tion, which causes the body to become hypersensitive to pollen and other environmental substances. Allergies cause a number of irritating symptoms that can make life miserable.

Hay fever is one of many allergies. An allergy is a hypersensitivity reaction: when you react to a substance that is considered to be harmless to most other people. Skin reactions, breathing issues, and irritations to the sinuses are some of the most frequent allergy symptoms.

“In developed countries, allergies are the most common cause of chronic illness—and they’re on the rise. As many as 40 percent of the world’s people suffer from at least one allergic condition, and in some countries allergies have increased by as much as 50 percent over the past decade” The Palmer Community.

The 5 most common allergies include:

  1. Pollen
  2. Grass
  3. Dust mites
  4. Mold
  5. Weeds

What Causes Allergic Reactions?

Your immune system recognizes and removes harmful substances from your body. Inflammation, sneezing, cough­ing, and vomiting are methods the immune system uses to expel any dangerous substance ingested by you.

However, an allergic response is when your immune system activates against a substance that is considered harmless for most people, but not for allergy suffers. What happens in a person with allergy is that the body interprets that this particular substance is potentially harmful to the body, which causes an allergic reaction.

The Body Tries to Remove Harmful Substances

When an allergic reaction starts, the body activates special immune cells called mast cells. On the surface of their membranes, these mast cells possess receptors that recognize substances considered either harmful or helpful to the body.

When harmful substances are detected, the cells release histamines. These chemicals sensitize the body to react and the body tries to remove all harmful substances by sneezing, coughing, etc.

Why Do Some People Get Allergies?

So far, no one really knows why some people get allergies and some not, but recent studies indicate that people that are hypersensitive get allergies.

Researchers have found that if you have a high sensitivity to stress, your body also reflects this sensitivity. The body and mind are connected entities. In fact, stress and allergies provoke similar inflammatory responses—and studies have shown that stress exacerbates the immune system’s already hyperbolic response to allergens.

Chronic stress also wears out the adrenal glands, which produce the anti-inflammatory hormone cortisol. Without enough cortisol to subdue the allergic response, symptoms can become even more severe.

Another theory is that an allergic reaction is an interpretation of a person’s environment. In order to interpret, your body must first get information, which is gathered by the nervous system. If your nervous system is dysfunctional, then the information interpreted will be altered, and this makes you vulnerable to abnormal reactions like allergies.

Can Chiropractic Treat Allergies?

If you have researched what chiropractic care is all about before, you already know the beneficial effects of chiropractic adjustments on the nervous system.

It is well documented by now that chiropractic:

  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Regulates stress hormones, and
  • Supports the respiratory system

Therefore, it is not surprising that many chiropractic patients report a reduction of allergy symptoms when treated regularly for vertebral subluxations.

Misalignment or dysfunctional movements of vertebra can cause a focal irritation in the spine, which then creates an abnormal signal received by the nervous system. When this aberrant signal occurs along the same pathway required for the input of normal environmental messages, the body may not interpret the information correctly. When this occurs, it can result in an allergic reaction (source: upchiro.com & blogs.palmer.edu).

If you suffer allergies, you should definitely consider chiropractic as one of your potential options for allergy relief. Dr. Adam Nachmias – Nachmias Chiropractic has more that 26 years experience of treating allergy patients. Dr. Adam has successfully treated their allergy symptoms.

10 Reasons to Why You Should See a Chiropractor

10 Reasons to Why You Should See a Chiropractor

10 Reasons to Why You Should See a Chiropractor - Nachmias Chiropractic

When you see the word chiropractic you probably think about pain relief. Yes, that is correct but chiropractic care was not meant for pain relief from the beginning. In fact, it was founded in 1895 by a man named D.D. Palmer when he adjusted a deaf man and managed to get his hearing back!

Chiropractic care has so many more health benefits than just pain relief. It is actually preventative health care. Take a look at this list of 10 reasons to why you should see a chiropractor and find out more:

1. Chiropractic Stimulates the Immune System

The immune system interacts directly with the nervous system affecting overall health. Obstructions with the signaling pathways between the nervous and the immune system impact the ability to heal adequately.

Chiropractic care is focusing on removing interference (blockages) on the nervous system, so that the body can properly repair itself at a genetic level and stimulate the immune system fully.

2. Chiropractic Ensures Wellness and
Prevent Illness

Chiropractic adjustments align the spine and allow the nervous system to flow freely in the body, hence treating underlying health problems and allows the body to heal itself.

For example, decompression exercises improve sleeping habits. Also, chiropractic therapy focuses on some of the first common symptoms of cancer; musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction, chronic headaches etc. In fact, chiropractic treatment has been shown to improve healing in cancer patients, as opposed to medication and other conventional therapies.

Chiropractic also functions as a natural pain reliever in cancer patients as well as patients with other pain symptoms.

3. Chiropractic Relieves Headaches and Migraines

Prior reason to why you should see a chiropractor takes us further into chiropractic care for headache and migraine relief. Many people suffer from frequent headaches that can dramatically impact their health and ability to maintain a good lifestyle.

Neck pressure and movement can exacerbate the severity of headaches caused by abnormal head positioning, such as hunching over at a computer or smartphone during most of the day. This puts enormous pressure on the neck and can be compared to a 40 lbs bag of potatoes on the neck.

Chiropractic therapy can remove obstructing structures causing the tightness in the back and strain on the spine. Receiving chiropractic care is an effective way to limit the occurrence of headaches and migraines, and also lessen the intensity when they do occur.

4. Elevates Sports Performance

Both athletes and non-athletes can benefit from sports-specific chiropractic. The focus lays on manipulating joints, soft tissue, and re-aligning the spine to increase overall performance and shorten recovery time.

Sport-specific chiropractic also prevents injuries such as; strains, sprains, and even concussions. Your chiropractor can teach you how to focus on the proper techniques for the respective sport you play – include stretching techniques that can reduce the occurrence of an injury, the severity of an injury, and a recommended rehabilitation time frame for healing.

5. Chiropractic Alleviates Allergies and Asthma

Both chiropractors and parents of children suffering from allergies, such as asthma, support the positive results of chiropractic. Studies also support that chiropractic care benefits patients by decreasing the amount of medication needed and unpleasant side effects.

Chiropractic patients suffer fewer asthma attacks and report an overall lessening of allergy symptoms leading to an improved quality of life.

How is this possible? Like already mentioned, chiropractic focuses on healing the nervous system, which in turn boosts the immune system. With a fully functional immune system, the body can fight allergies and asthma by itself.

6. Chiropractic for Pregnancy and Labor Relief

Throughout pregnancy, many women experience chronic back pain due to the changing weight distribution on the pelvis and joints. Pain and muscle spasms may increase the likelihood that a pregnant mother will struggle during labor and delivery.

Chiropractic focuses on balancing the muscles, pelvis, and ligaments during pregnancy to relieve pressure on the uterus. This treatment increases the likelihood that the child will be born via a preferable position, while lowering the risk of being born through cesarean section.

72 Percent of Women Report Finding Relief from Pain During Pregnancy and Labor Resulting from Chiropractic 

7. Chiropractic Helps Chronic Pain

Low back pain affects more than 10% of the population globally, and is the most common occupational injury in the United States and Canada. North America ranks low back pain 6th amongst contributing factors for increased medical cost. Compared to conventional health management practices, chiropractic care is a low cost treatment and improves the healing of the entire body.

Doctors of chiropractic also focus on education, which is critical to reducing injuries, disability, care costs, and adverse side effects. Chiropractic therapy is also a patient preference for providing pain relief.

8. Chiropractic Normalizes Blood Pressure

Hypertension affects around 33% of Americans. Most hypertension patients will use medication to manage the condition, since that is the first option their doctor will offer.

These individuals should look to chiropractic instead. Chiropractic care can significantly control blood pressure. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to result in a decrease in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure readings.

Chiropractors focus on the bone at the top of the neck in proximity to the brainstem which may be the reason for the impact on regulating blood pressure. Tests have shown that chiropractic care works as effectively at managing hypertension as at least two of the most commonly prescribed medications.

9. Chiropractic Eliminates Fatigue
and Reduces Stress

Fatigue and stress are common symptoms for many in today’s fast beat society. A professional chiropractic examination can determine why your nervous system is out of balance. Good spinal health often results in reduced stress levels and an increase in energy.

Chiropractic can even help treat depression, since it helps the body to naturally produce more serotonin.

10. Manages Behavioral and Learning Disabilities

Chiropractic procedures improve wellness and can help reduce hyperactivity and disruptive behaviors linked to ADHD and learning disabilities associated with autism.

Evidence supports that chiropractic treatment can better able a child to concentrate. In turn, it improves learning and behavior by limiting causes of agitation (sources: thetruthaboutcancer.com & slideshare.net).

Get Allergy Relief with Chiropractic!

Get Allergy Relief with Chiropractic!

Get Allergy Relief! Visit Dr. Adam Nachmias - Nachmias Chiropractic and get help with your allergy symptoms.Millions of people suffer from seasonal hay fever, which causes the body to become hypersensitive to pollen and other environmental substances. This condition causes a number of irritating symptoms that can make life miserable. 

The number of people with allergies is increasing rapidly. Seasonal or not, all allergies are the result of an exaggerated response by the immune system to substances that are recognized as foreign.

In people with allergies, the immune system produces a specific antibody known as immunoglobulin E in response to pollen, pet dander, foods, dust, and other matters, which in turn produces the symptoms of allergic reactions.

At this time, the number of people affected by allergy symptoms is between 10-30% of the total population, and this number is increasing rapidly. For Americans, who suffer from nasal and seasonal allergies, the costs quickly add up. It is currently estimated that between doctor visits, prescriptions, and time missed from work, these allergies cost in excess of 3 billion each year.

However, With the Help of Chiropractic Care You Can Say Good Bye to Allergy Symptoms and Expensive Doctor Visits!

How Can We Claim So You May Think?

The reason behind our somewhat bold statement is the fact that the strength of both immune system and respiratory systems depends largely on proper communication between the brain and spinal cord. This communication is essential for all internal organs to function properly.

When there are interruptions in the communication between the brain and spinal cord, such as misalignments of the spine, the immunity may be compromised, and the body cannot fight allergy symptoms. This upper cervical joint irritation can exaggerate, or even produce allergic and asthmatic symptoms.

When manually adjusting the joints and soft tissue, it helps restore alignment, and re-opens the necessary pathways of communication between the brain and spine. In addition to promoting a stronger immune system, chiropractic adjustments may also help regulate the rush of histamine and amount of cortisol produced during high allergy seasons.

The majority of allergies involve release of inflammatory producing substances such as histamine. Adequate production of cortisol (an anti-inflammatory hormone produced by the adrenal gland) is necessary to combat this. Evidence has shown that many allergy sufferers have weak adrenal gland function.

What needs to be understood is that the adrenal gland is fed directly by the T9 spinal level nerve root, meaning once again that spinal misalignments can greatly impact allergic reactions (source: southeastchiro.com & upchiro.com).
