Allergies and Sinusitis

Your gut can be a big contributor to allergies and sinusitis. Your digestive tract gets hit by harmful substances every day. Bloating, discomfort, and overall "blah" feeling can occur when your digestive system get's out of whack. Find a good probiotic to add healthy enzymes to the gut to bring a healthy balance to the gut. Also, don't forget to keep up with your adjustments to keep the nervous system functioning which helps the body stay healthy.

 

The allergy season is already here. Be proactive!

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!

Reduce Your Risk of Adverse Drug Events with Chiropractic Care

If you are in chronic pain from back problems, you may be tempted to try anything to keep the hurt at bay. This might include taking addictive opioid pain killers or analgesics that have negative side effects. These prescription drugs can cause "adverse drug events," which refer to any sort of injury or side effect caused by a medication. Even scarier, the mortality rate from adverse drug events has been rising dramatically. No one wants to die from a pain pill or end up addicted to it. The Good News: Adverse Drug Events Can Be Avoided The next time you are tempted to just medicate your back pain away, contact your chiropractor. By getting comprehensive chiropractic care, you may be able to reduce or completely eliminate your dependence on prescription pain medication. In fact, it's been proven to work. One recent study showed that chiropractic patients had a 51% reduced likelihood of adverse drug events within 12 months compared to nonrecipients. Comprehensive chiropractic care for back pain can include spinal manipulation and adjustments, pain relieving exercises, and other wellness protocols that are safe, non-invasive, and dont have those pesky and often dangerous side effects of drugs. Reduce Pain with Chiropractic Care Today There is no need to risk adverse drug events when there is a safer option with chiropractic care. Contact us today for a consultation!

Seniors: Eat More Vitamins, Lower Your Risk of Frailty

A recent study has linked eating a vitamin-rich, balanced diet with a lower risk of developing frailty for adults age 65 and up. The research comes from the School of Medicine at Universidad de La Frontera in Chile. The study looked at over 1,600 adults over the age of 65, none of which had developed frailty as they got older. All of the participants offered in-depth information about their diet and food habits. After the end of a follow-up period of about 3.5 years, 5.4% of participants (89 adults) had developed frailty. Frailty is defined as a lowered amount of physiological health and functioning. It often includes issues like fatigue, weakness, low activity, and slowness. Most people expect older adults to develop frailty as a byproduct of old age, but frailty isn't totally age-dependent. The Chilean study revealed that the seniors with the lowest levels of vitamin B6 at the beginning were 2.8 times likelier to develop some measure of frailty by the end of the research period. This is in comparison with participants who regularly ate vitamin B6-rich foods like bananas, sweet potatoes, fish, tofu, and chicken. Additionally, participants with the lowest vitamin E levels were 2.3 times likelier to develop some kind of frailty as opposed to those adults with diets rich in vitamin E. Finally, the seniors who ate the least amount of vitamin C were 93% likelier to become frail than their counterparts who regularly ate vitamin C-packed foods like dark leafy greens, broccoli, and lemons.
