CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR ADD AND ADHD
back to top

ADD and ADHD are conditions that are directly related to your nerves functioning properly and diet. When someone has one of these conditions their nerves are overly excited. They have a hard time concentrating because they hear everything and have to see what each little noise is. Chiropractic care uses adjustments to relax the nerves and bring the body back into harmony. The chiropractor will also change their diet which can have a big part in recovery.


 

CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR DETOXIFICATION
back to top
Toxity Self-Test

Introduction
Low-level, long-term exposure to toxins such as heavy metals (e.g. lead, mercury, arsenic, and cadmium), pesticides, industrial compounds, and pollutants is associated with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS), fibromyalgia (FM), neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease and atherosclerosis as well as many types of cancers. Common signs and symptoms of environmental toxicity include acne, rashes, headaches, aches and pains, fatigue, muscle weakness, tinnitus, fertility problems, memory loss, and chronic immune system depression.

Common Clinical Symptoms and Conditions Associated with Environmental Toxicity:

› Headaches › Mineral Imbalances › Kidney Dysfunction
› Fertility Problems › Abnormal Pregnancy Outcomes › Chronic Immune System
› Non-Repsonsive or Recurrent Yeast Infections › Multiple Chemical Sensitivities › Fibromyalgia
› Contact Dermatitis › Learning Disorders › Tinnitus
› Memory Loss › Cancer › Panic Attacks
› Chronic Fatigue Syndrome › Fatigue › Broad Mood Swings
› Parkinson's Disease › Depression › Muscle Weakness
› Unusual Responses to Medication or Supplements
› Worsening of Symptoms After Anesthesia or Pregnancy
› History of Increasing Sensitivity to Exogenous Exposures, Odors, or Medications

Toxins may remain in the body for many years, therefore we are exposed to much higher toxin doses than present environmental concentrations suggest. Research suggests that we all maintain toxin contamination within our bodies on a regular basis due to this lifetime of exposure.

How does the body remove toxic substances?
An individual's ability to remove or detoxify toxins is a primary factor in susceptibility to toxin-related conditions. In order to remove (excrete) the multitude of diverse toxins, the body has a complex system that converts them into non-toxic molecules for removal. This complex system occurs in two phases- Phase I and Phase II, that convert (biotransform) a toxic molecule into a non-toxic molecule that can be easily excreted. The majority of detoxification occurs in the liver, however all tissues have some ability to detoxify, including the intestines, skin and lungs.

In Phase I, a functional group is added to the toxic molecule, producing an intermediate that needs to be further transformed. Phase II detoxification involves a process called conjugation in which various enzymes in the liver attach protective compounds to the intermediate, making it less harmful and more readily excretable. Because the products of Phase I can be highly reactive and more harmful than the original compound, achieving and maintaining a balance between Phase I and Phase II processes is critical.

Futhermore, a significant side effect of all this metabolic activity is the production of free radicals as the toxins is transformed, resulting in oxidative stress. Nutrients that help protect us from oxidative stress include vitamins C and E, zinc, selenium and copper.

Achieving Balanced Detoxification
Optimal detoxification requires that both Phase I and Phase II pathways function correctly and in balance with each other. Bifunctional modulators are phytonutrients that support balanced detoxification by modulating Phase I and promotin Phase II. This minimizes damage by reactive intermediates and free radicals. Fruits and vegetables contain many bifunctional modulators, which is one reason these foods are associated with reduced susceptibilities to cancer and degenerative diseases.

Nutritional Support for Detoxification
Detoxification is an energy-requiring process that puts a metabolic burden on the body. Therefore, water or juice fasts are not beneficial they deplete the body of the essential mutrients required for healthy detoxification. These fasts have many adverse health effects, including decreased energy production, breakdown of lean tissue instead of fat, increased oxidative stress, and unbalanced detoxification.

Rather than decreasing nutrient support, a focused, high-impact, low allergy potential source of micro and macronutrients should be provided.

Summary
Minimizing exposure to toxins is only one part to a beneficial detoxification program. Low allergy potential, targeted nutrition providing the full spectrum of Phase II supportive cofactors, bifunctional modulators for balanced detoxification, and support for energy production and excretion may optimize balanced detoxification and promote optimal health throughout life.

CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR
EAR INFECTIONS
back to top

Ear infections are most common in children under the age of three. One of the main reasons is the estuation tube is bigger and more horizontal which is easier for fluid to get into the ear. When fluid is in the ear it is more susceptible to infection. The chiropractor will adjust the neck because the nerves in the neck travel to the ear. The doctor will want to make sure the nerve stress is free and that there are no misalignments in the spine which can interfere with the estuation tube draining. Sometimes multiple doses of antibiotics can trigger more infection due to them slowing your immune system. You will be put on a diet to increase your immune system which may entails some supplements.


 

CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR FIBROMYALGIA
back to top

Fibromyalgia is a form of generalized muscular pain and fatigue. It is commonly misunderstood because a lot of its symptoms are also found in other common ailments. In addition, it doesn't have a specific known cause. Some of the most common symptoms are pain, swelling, fatigue, headaches, muscle spasms, tender points, numbness and tingling, and stiffness. It is commonly mistaken for muscular soreness, but this is not true. It is a form of soft tissue or muscular rheumatism. Fibromyalgia is effectively treated with a combination of treatments and medications that diminish pain and improve sleep, physical therapy for exercises, relaxation techniques, and soft tissue mobilization, and chiropractic manipulation.


 


CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR
FROZEN SHOULDER

CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR
KNEE PAIN
back to top

Most knee pain is from a sports related injury. Sometimes the ligaments can be torn or stretched past its normal range of motion. Sometimes knee pain can be compensation from your low back. When the pelvis or low back is misaligned the angles from your hip to your leg change which can throw your knee out of alignment. We will look at your low back as well as your knee for misalignments and tight muscles. It is also important to receive stretches and stretching exercises for your muscles that help support the knee.

LOW BACK PAIN
back to top

At your initial evaluated we will determine the source of your pain, such as the disc, nerves, muscles or facet joints. Lumbar sprain or strain, disc bulges, protrusions or herniations, and sciatic syndromes all produce low back pain. Soft tissue mobilization combined with chiropractic adjustments and rehabilitative exercises is the most effective approach for most patients. Chiropractic uses adjustments help to restore the nerves from stress that the body and outside elements have on them. Having your spine aligned will restore your nerves to their optimal function and in turn will decrease you pain and tight muscles.


 


CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR
NECK PAIN
back to top

Whether your neck pain is from an automobile accident or due to work, or sleep posture, neck pain is generally relieved when joint motion is restored, muscles regain their pliability and inflammation is minimized. Chiropractic adjustments help to restore your neck motion as well as decrease your muscle tightness. Sometimes neck pain can cause headaches which are also relieved by chiropractic adjustments. It is a part of the treatment to receive strengthening of the supportive muscles and to learn posture when sleeping and at the work station.
