• ARE YOU SUFFERING FROM BACK PAIN?

    If you suffer from back pain, you join as many as 85% of all Americans who will be disabled by back pain at some point in their lives. Years of abusing your back makes the back prone to injury. The lower back is particularly vulnerable and the dysfunction of its major joints can lead to painful results.

    WHAT YOU SHOULD “KNOW” ABOUT YOUR BACK

    If you’re like most of us, you will take your back for granted… that is, until it stops working the way it should! Understanding how your back works and what you can do to prevent back problems can help keep your back “trouble-free.”

    Proper alignment of your spine is essential for total health. Unfortunately, daily wear and tear, such as poor posture, improper lifting, old injuries that didn’t heal properly, or lack of body conditioning can cause your spine to get out of alignment. Muscle spasms, prolonged periods of pain, delayed recovery from injury, as well as increased chances of permanent damage and degeneration can result.

    GOOD NEWS FOR BAD BACKS!

    It’s tempting to reach for a quick-fix by taking pain-killing drugs when you’re in pain. But drugs only mask the pain; they do not correct the underlying problem. The goal of chiropractic is to identify the cause and then correct the problem so it doesn’t recur.

    Each year, millions of people find relief from back pain with chiropractic care. Chiropractic can help correct the cause of your pain and restore your back to full function, while preventing other back problems in the future.

    The primary weapon against back pain is a specific form of manipulation called a “spinal adjustment.” When properly administered by a trained chiropractor, these adjustments have been scientifically proven to be highly effective in dealing with pain of spinal origin.

    In fact, the U.S. government recently sponsored a study which concluded that most patients with back problems, and many others with nerve root pain would benefit from chiropractic manipulative treatment. At the same time, the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research found chiropractic manipulation to be a “safe and effective” treatment for adults with back trouble.

  • It is estimated that 45 million Americans regularly suffer from serious, recurring headaches as they spend upwards of $400 million each year on over-the-counter and prescription drugs searching for pain relief. In fact, because headaches are so common, some people think that getting a headache is simply a normal part of life! They couldn’t be more wrong! Headaches are a serious sign that the body is not functioning properly.

    WHAT CAUSES HEADACHES?

    Most headaches are usually caused from a combination of two factors. The first is due to muscular contractions of the neck that then restricts the blood supply to the brain. The second factor is due to pinched nerves caused by spinal misalignments of the neck vertebrae.

    SO WHAT CAN BE DONE?

    The first thing to do is seek professional help. Dr. Rothschild will be able to diagnose your problem and tell you why you are having these headaches. A “hands-on” treatment program will be recommended and/or you may be referred for further investigation if he feels that would be valuable. Management of your headaches may include chiropractic adjustments (no drugs or surgery) to normalize the function of your spine, advice on lifestyle and nutritional changes to help prevent further recurrences and advice on how you can further deal with the problem.

    AND HOW CAN YOU HELP?

    Knowledge is the key to preventing headaches from starting in the first place. Understanding how they are triggered will aid you in stopping them. In addition, you need to report all that you feel to Dr. Rothschild so that he knows all there is to know about how your headaches occur. Once the headache has begun, you can use heat/ice, rest/activity, or stimulation/repression techniques as Dr. R advises.

    You will come to know when it is appropriate to seek care and when it is not necessary. As time goes by, you should have less and less headache as all factors are dealt with. Most patients seeking our care for headaches experience excellent results.
