Before I begin, let me give you a little insight to where my perspective on the healing comes from. By training, I’m a scientist. I am really good at looking at issues critically and deciphering facts and problems based on factual evidence and sound theories. At the same time, I always had an interest in alternative medicine and while I lived in Seattle for 5 years, I had the chance to experience directly and learn various healing modalities such as naturopathic physician care,  acupuncture, homeopathy, chiropractic in Killeen.

Pain In Lower Back

Some of my knowledge comes from being the inquisitive patient, some comes from discussions with students of Bastyr College of Naturopathic medicine who I befriended while in Seattle.  While in Killeen I also took several classes on Reiki, and became a Reiki Master/Teacher and hence I have the insiders perspective on how energy healing works and what it can and can’t do.I am a strong advocate of alternative therapies in conjunction with or sometimes instead of traditional medicine. However, recently, I have been really bothered by practices of chiropractor (some not all) and I feel that there are many out there that take advantage of the general lack of understanding of how the human body works in patients to keep their businesses going.

Killeen Chiropractor for Back Pain, Neck Pain, Sciatica, Herniated Disc …

Pain In Neck Many people choose to seek chiropractic when they have a pain not only in their back, but any part of their body. If you are looking for an alternative to traditional medication and surgery, you may want to consider seeking help from a chiropractor. Throughout your life, you may feel some aches and pains. Many choose to go to the doctor who may then prescribe some medication or recommend over the counter remedies to mask the symptoms by relieving the pain. While others may choose to suffer through, hoping it will stop soon; many others choose to undergo chiropractic care, believing that the body can heal itself with the help of a professional. With proper alignment of the skeletal structure, the nervous system can function properly; relieve you of painful symptoms and health issues. The chiropractor uses his or her hands to restructure the vertebrae. Many people's bones on the spine are not correctly structured, thereby resulting in subluxation. This can cause pain not only in the back, but also in other parts of the body. Misalignment of the spine can interfere with the nervous and vascular systems, causing an array of issues including pain, digestive disturbances and weakness. More and more people are undergoing chiropractic care as an alternative therapy. It has become so popular that many times it is covered under some insurance plans. If you are interested in the procedure, contact your insurance company to make sure the procedure is covered. More and more people are using it for pain and problems in the spine and lower back. Others have even used it to cure ear infections or colic in infants, as well as headaches. During the first consultation period, the doctor will begin with a chiropractic exam. He or she will ask you questions pertaining to your medical history. The doctor will also ask the patient to explain where they feel pain and whether there are long lasting health problems and a history of disease. They may even ask you about your dietary habits and any medication you may take. If you know how the injury occurred, this is the time to tell the doctor so that he or she can properly diagnose the problem. Many professionals use x-ray machines during the initial visit also. They will then start the procedure by manipulating the spine, which may produce a painless popping sound. This will normally help the joints. The patient will lie on a special table when this is occurring, to help the practitioner place the patient in proper positions. They may also try some stretching techniques. Generally you will need longer term treatment if your pain is chronic or severe or attached to a health problem. If you are in poor health then the recovery time can be long also. The doctor will discharge you and will follow up with you to insure that there are not huge risks or complications. The doctor will also ask you to do some exercises and may have you to use heat or ice packs when you are at home. If performed correctly, chiropractic treatment can do wonders if a person is suffering from certain ailments. If you are interested in some alternative medicines, then why not try chiropractic procedures from a professional who you can trust. Back Problems

Yes, a chiropractor can help people with allergies. Next time you are feeling unwell due to allergies, you should consider visiting a chiropractor. Chiropractic care is a holistic method of providing relief for the discomfort you feel when you suffer from allergies. Your chiropractor can successfully treat allergies by keeping your body healthy and less vulnerable to allergic reactions. A visit to a chiropractor, when you are suffering the symptoms of an allergic reaction, may help you to cope with your condition and make you feel much better.How can a Chiropractor help you? Allergic reactions are common immune disorders. Hay fever, for example, can cause your eyes to water; it can cause you to sneeze uncontrollably, to sniff or to cough. Although there is no cure for people who suffer from allergies, the symptoms caused by an allergic reaction can be treated. Your immune system is affected by nerves and hormones. The immune system fights the invasion in your body of foreign substances, such as pollution, pollen, dust, and animal dander. People with allergies may also react to a wide variety of triggers such as bee stings, various medications, and certain foods. Research shows that there is a link between your immune system and your nervous system. Because your spinal column houses the spinal cord, a dysfunctional spinal column can influence your nervous system; therefore a dysfunctional spinal column will make you more prone to allergies. A chiropractor can help you by removing nerve interference to allow your immune system to work to its full capacity. How does a Chiropractor treat People suffering from Allergies? A chiropractor takes a holistic approach to the treatment of allergies. Visiting a chiropractor during the season of the year when you are most affected by your allergy may result in you being able to cut down on allergy medication.

By seeking help from a chiropractor you may be able to take less medication or a smaller dose. The chiropractor will correct any interference to your nervous system and this will strengthen your immune system, therefore making you better able to fight against the various allergens that cause you distress. Chiropractic treatment removes subluxations. Subluxations are misaligned spinal vertebra that pinches a nerve in your body. Subluxations cause stress to your nervous system. Once your nervous system is free from stress, your immune system will be healthier and more able to fight against whatever triggers your allergy. It does not matter what triggers your allergy, you will benefit from chiropractic treatment to your spine.

What is Chiropractor’s Best Suggestion for Back Pain Treatment?

Before I begin, let me give you a little insight to where my perspective on the healing comes from. By training, I'm a scientist. I am really good at looking at issues critically and deciphering facts and problems based on factual evidence and sound theories. At the same time, I always had an interest in alternative medicine and while I lived in Seattle for 5 years, I had the chance to experience directly and learn various healing modalities such as naturopathic physician care, acupuncture, homeopathy, Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques (NAET). Some of my knowledge comes from being the inquisitive patient, some comes from discussions with students of Bastyr College of Naturopathic medicine who I befriended while in Seattle. While in Seattle I also took several classes on Reiki, and became a Reiki Master/Teacher and hence I have the insiders perspective on how energy healing works and what it can and can't do.I am a strong advocate of alternative therapies in conjunction with or sometimes instead of traditional medicine. However, recently, I have been really bothered by practices of chiropractors (some not all) and I feel that there are many out there that take advantage of the general lack of understanding of how the human body works in patients to keep their businesses going. I write this article with the goal to educate moms on the good, the bad, and the ugly associated with chiropractic care, especially as many chiropractors now advocate for 'maintenance care' not only for adults but also for children. As you will see below, I do believe that chiropractic adjustments can be very useful, especially when they are performed as part of the whole body healing, but unfortunately, when done in isolation, chiropractic adjustments often only set you up on a path of going, and going, and going back to your chiropractor for more treatments, rather than getting well. The work of a chiropractor is to manipulate the spine to remove misalignments. Misalignments in the spine are often referred to as subluxations. Traditional chiropractic philosophy is based on the belief that misalignments in the spine are the root cause of illness. Hence they remove the misalignments in the spine with the hope that the illness will go away as well. The idea behind this theory is that all body organs are connected to the spine through nerves. If there is misalignment in the spine, it will cause a problem with the nerves and then other organs connected to them. If you consider long term chiropractic care for yourself or your family, be sure that this theory of all illness originating from spine misalignments resonates with you. It doesn't with me. Here is why. The spine connects to joints, then to muscles and ligaments that support the spine and its structure. If there is a problem within the spine, the muscles in the close proximity to the spine misalignment (and often not only in that region) will also be affected. Typically some muscles will become overly tight and some will become weak, as muscles work in pairs. This is what's commonly referred to a muscle imbalance. In addition to the musculoskeletal system in your body, there is a biochemical system, and an emotional system. The biochemical system includes your blood chemistry, hormones, vitamins, minerals, and hence this system is vital to your well-being. Emotions, including moods and attitudes have also been shown to contribute to and to aid illnesses. The musculoskeletal, the biochemical, and the emotional systems within our body are very intimately connected to create our well-being or sickness. If we become ill, all of these systems will be affected and disease will manifest in all. I think it's naive to believe that all disease starts from the spine. For example, if you never go out in the sun and eventually become Vitamin D deficient, it is likely that you will develop problems in your spine since Vitamin D deficiency leads to muscles weakness. This in turn will likely lead to spine misalignments. Similarly, severe emotional trauma, never addressed properly, over time may lead to sickness which will likely cause some spine misalignment. I believe that it's correct to say that most illness will manifest itself in the spine, but that is not the same as saying that all illness originates in the spine. One thing to keep in mind is that the somewhat simplistic philosophy behind chiropractic and illness was developed at time when people had no choice but to eat minimally processed foods from local sources, before there were any chemicals in the environment, and at a time before drugs, vaccinations, and other environmental factors were impacting our health. In our modern society, there are other factors that contribute to creating illness, which must be addressed. In my opinion, removing the cause of the illness is the best approach for curing it. Finding the cause of the illness is often the tricky part. This is where a doctor with a broad range of expertise and education is most helpful. Ideally, the physician you pick as your doctor is familiar with how disease manifests itself in the musculoskeletal system, as well as in the biochemical and emotional system. Such a physician can best determine how to get all these systems back into balance. Chiropractic treatments have the best chance of curing problems most directly related to disturbances in the musculoskeletal system of the body. Many joint, and muscle pains can be aided by chiropractic manipulation. The question is, whether the pain will stay away. If the treatment is for an injury such as back pain due to someone lifting a heavy object in awkward manner, one to several chiropractic adjustments will usually get rid of the pain for good. The reason is that the cause of the pain was the spinal misalignment, and once removed, the patient is usually pain free.What about chronic pain though? Moms often develop neck and shoulder pain from nursing and carrying their children. Lower back pain and sciatica are also quite common. All chiropractors happily address these conditions, but how they are addressed varies greatly between chiropractors.It is a very common chiropractic practice to manipulate the spine to try to get it back to its proper alignment, and ask the patient to come back multiple times in a week, often for long periods of time. The reason for the multiple return visits is not addressing the cause of the spine misalignment. If the cause of the problem is not removed, few hours to a few days after the adjustment, the spine slowly returns to its previous state. Why? Because the muscles that are tight are pulling it in the direction of previous misalignment and the weak muscles can't support the corrected structure. So the patient goes back to the chiropractor, and the process is repeated. 5, 10, 20, 40, sometimes 60 times, usually 1 to 3 times a week over a course of weeks. Then once a week, then once a month. After all those adjustments, it is possible that the muscles over time slowly adapt into the new corrected shape from the repeated adjustments, but typically if treatment is stopped, the spine will go back to the misalignment as the cause of the problem was never addressed by the chiropractic practitioner. Many moms I know have chronic neck or lower back pain, and all feel better after visiting a chiropractor. The problem is that they need to keep seeing the chiropractor in order to feel better.The underlying reason for chronic pain is often postural patterns (such as forward rounded shoulders from computer use) and muscle imbalances (strong quadriceps and weak hamstrings in runners or after pregnancy). That's only part of the picture though. Spine misalignment can also be caused by and exacerbated by a food allergy, such as dairy intolerance, or vitamin deficiency. The misalignments due to these factors can be as severe as from chronic postural patterns. Chiropractic adjustments will keep making the patient feel better after every adjustment, however if the cause is never addressed, the problem will keep coming back. In these examples, it would make most sense to address the cause of the illness (vitamin D deficiency or dairy intolerance) rather than the symptom (spine misalignment) Spinal Decompression

Lumbar Spine Killeen

Chiropractic spinal traction therapy in Killeen is a method of stretching and mobilizing the spine using hands-on or mechanic force. Alleviation in pain is sought with therapeutic spinal traction by loosening tight and/or constricted muscles around the spine, and to help decompress intervertebral discs in order to relieve pressure on the spinal nerve roots, which is a major cause of back and spine related pain. As with other chiropractic treatments, spinal traction may or may not help alleviate your pain, often times with chiropractic treatment what works on one patient may not be right for others. Your chiropractor will evaluate your condition and determine if traction, and in what form, is right for you.

Pain In Neck Chiropractors are known for their abilities in helping people with neck and back pain. The most common reason why someone even considers seeing a chiropractor is for back pain, specifically low back pain. Research and studies and the general consensus are that we can help in this area. What about shoulder pain? Is there anything a chiropractor can do to help shoulder pain? You can certainly have a chiropractor take a look at and evaluate your shoulder problem. While the spine is most commonly adjusted, the chiropractic adjustment can be performed at any joint. A joint is anywhere two bones meet. In the case of the shoulder, we'll be looking at three different areas; the clavicle (collarbone), the hummers (upper arm), and the scapula (the shoulder blade). Any of these joints can move out of their normal position with extended use in the wrong way. Stress and poor posture in the upper back can lead the shoulder blade to become stuck and fixated in the wrong position. The chiropractor can adjust this area and work with the muscles to get things moving again. The same principles apply to the hummers and the clavicle. There are certain movements in which each bone will take on a more primary role. The chiropractor can feel with his hand if the right areas are moving or not. If the joint is not moving, this means it is likely not functioning correctly. This is where the chiropractor's expertise can be of most use. The first evaluation of the shoulder is really to see if any of the muscles, ligaments, or tendons has torn. Depending on the severity of the tear, you may need an immediate referral for an MRI and a visit to an orthopedic specialist. You don't want someone moving your bones around if you have a tear, and the chiropractor doesn't want to do that either. If you haven't had any trauma to the shoulder joint and the pain has just come on gradually over the years. The chiropractor can take a look and provide adjustments and work to the muscles that can make a world of difference. Cervical Stenosis

Many people today are opting for natural healing. And one of the most popular natural healing methods is chiropractic. Chiropractors are trained to provide relief to their patients as fast as they possibly can. A reputable chiropractic practitioner will recommend the smallest number of treatments necessary to help prevent the patient's condition from recurring. If it is your first time to visit a chiropractic clinic, here are the steps that might help you. - Before a patient is treated, the chiropractor needs to conduct an interview with the patient. This may be done face to face or over the telephone. During this interview, the chiropractor will discuss his philosophy and approach toward treatment. - You will be asked to fill out forms which will provide the chiropractor with the information he needs to develop your treatment plan. The questions on the form will revolve around the details of your condition. Additionally, you may be asked to provide details about your family's and your own medical history, past and current treatments, and other existing conditions. - You will then undergo a chiropractic exam. The chiropractor will conduct a few general tests followed by other tests designed to evaluate your range of motion, muscle strength and tone, and neurological integrity. In some cases, the patient may be asked to undergo further chiropractic tests. Some patients may be asked to undergo diagnostic studies after the chiropractic exam. Diagnostic studies can sometimes aid in enabling the chiropractor to make a more accurate diagnosis. These may include x-rays, MRI, and other lab tests. - Combining the findings from the patient's history, chiropractic exam, and diagnostic studies, the chiropractor can then proceed to make a diagnosis. Once a diagnosis has been made, the chiropractor will explain his findings, whether chiropractic can help you, the treatment plan, and the length of the treatment process. Actual treatment may start during the first visit or the following visit. Although treatment plans are tailored to each individual patient, most plans include adjustment of the joints, soft tissue healing techniques, pain control, strengthening and stretching exercises, advice on proper posture and movement, and treatments like massage, cold/hot compress, and nutritional advice. Treatment plans for patients are often divided into two parts. The initial phase is centered on providing immediate pain relief and restoring normal functions. The second phase is long-term in nature and is geared toward enabling the patience to achieve a good measure of functional independence which, in turn, should lead to the complete restoration of the patient's ability to enjoy his normal routines. These are the basic steps you should remember when planning to visit a chiropractic clinic for the first time. Neck Pain Causes
