BEMER TECHNOLOGY

I am excited to announce a new treatment being offered through our office. It is call BEMER Technology. This treatment was developed fifteen years ago and is German engineered.

 

It is a Biophysical Application that activates the body's own Power of Self-Healing. It promotes general blood flow on a microcurculation level. 70% of our circulation is microcurculation. Studies show a 30% improvement after two minutes on the BEMER.

 

The technology improves nutrients and oxygen into the cells and removes waste disposal. Cardiac function is improved along with endurance, strength and energy on a physical level. Concentration, mental acuity with stress reduction and relaxation is improved. Finally sleep enhancement is experienced. Call our offfice for pricing and schedule your first three visits free.

AUTO ACCIDENT COVERAGE

GET YOUR ACCIDENT MEDICAL BILLS PAID. Did you know there is a portion of your automobile policy that not only allows you to go to any doctor you want regardless of your health insurance but pays your bills? Your car insurance protects your car, not the people inside of it. �Medical Payments� (often called Med Pay) or �Personal Injury Protection� (PIP) covers the medical cost of all passengers in your vehicle including you if they are injured in an accident. Med Pay will cover the medical cost resulting from an accident regardless of who was at fault. Only injuries caused directly by the accident will be covered by Med Pay. Keep in mind Med Pay is purchased on a �by vehicle� basis. This means if you have two cars you must purchase Med Pay for both if you wish to be covered in either car. It�s also very important to point out that Med Pay is not a replacement for health insurance. Med Pay coverage is strictly limited to injuries that occur during auto accidents and almost always has a limit (We suggest a minimum of $10,000 in coverage). Your health insurance can also cover your injuries if you�re in a car accident: the difference is that Med Pay will cover the other people in the car. Additionally, Med Pay or PIP covers your medical cost from an accident at 100%, usually without deductibles and co-payments. If you use your health insurance to cover your accident-related medical expenses you may be subject to plan restrictions, high deductible, co-payments and re-payment. What does all that mean for you? It means that at the end of your accident related treatment you may not have any outstanding doctor bills to pay and so have decreased your liability. This low cost insurance can be an effective way to pay for your treatment bills. Check your automobile declaration page or call your insurance agent to find out your specific coverage�s. Most insurance agents do not recommended it. It is an optional coverage and you must request it.  Contact your insurance agent to find the right coverage to fit your individual needs. If you or anyone you know has been involved in an automobile accident the key to recover is early evaluation and treatment. Don�t wait to see if it goes away, call our office immediately.

SPINAL DECOMPRESSION

An often overlooked treatment that is highly successful for slipped or herniated disc is available in our office. This is a non-surgical alternative procedure for relieving low back, neck, arm and leg (sciatica) pain.

Treatment is directed towards relieving pressure on structures such as nerves and disc that may be a major source of pain. It can relieve the pain associated with bulging, herniated and degenerative disc. If you or someone you know have any one of these conditions have them call and schedule an appointment to see if they are a candidate for spinal decompression. Chiropractic first, Drugs second and Surgery last!

Back Pain Sufferers Reduce Disability with Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care for back pain has been proven to provide pain relief while improving mobility and function. Now, a recent study provides evidence that chiropractic care can not only reduce back pain but also lessen disability in patients. The study focused on 750 United States military service members still on active duty. All were being treated for lower back pain. Traditional measures such as physical therapy as well as drugs were used.  Then, half of the group were treated by a chiropractor. The chiropractic methods used included spinal manipulation as well as special exercises. In just six weeks, the military service members who received the chiropractic treatments had less back pain and less disability. The research was led by Dr. Christine Goertz of the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. She told Reuters that the treatments may help muscles heal while improving mobility in the body. They may also help manage pain by changing how pain is perceived. Back pain in the lumbar spine (lower back) affects one in five adult Americans. With painkillers such as opioids leading to increasing addictions, safe, natural treatments like chiropractic care are increasingly sought after. If you're suffering from back pain, neck pain, headaches, or joint related pain, contact your local doctor of chiropractic today!

Regular Exercise Is Great for Mental Health – But Watch Out for Too Much

According to a study of 1.2 million adults across the U.S., people who engage in regular exercise report an overall healthier mental state than non-active or sedentary people. However, more exercise is not necessarily better for mental health. According to this research, daily exercisers actually report less mental wellbeing. This means, just like anything else, moderation is key to reap the health benefits of physical activity. And, according to the study, all kinds of exercise counts, including housework, mowing the lawn, caring for children, fishing, gym sessions, running, walking, and more. Researchers have continually proven that exercise can have major positive health effects, including lowered risks for stroke, heart disease, and diabetes. However, the link between good mental health and exercise is less certain. While the researchers in this particular study were able to positively link exercise to healthy mindsets, they weren’t able to demonstrate cause and effect. The study asked adults across the U.S. to give a ballpark estimate of how often during the previous month they would say their mental health was "not good" due to emotional issues, including those related to stress and depression. In addition, these adults reported their exercise habits during the previous month, including how long each session lasted. One major takeaway from the study: People who exercised regularly reported experiencing less mental health issues. In total, the exercisers reported 43% fewer days with mental health issues than non-exercisers.
