Decompression Therapy is practiced by your favorite chiropractor in Fort Lauderdale, FL by use of a decompression table.  How does one get into a situation where a decompression table is needed for your chiropractic treatment? After years of walking, sitting, playing sports, car accidents and other injuries, your neck and back start to hurt. For some, it’s the occasional muscle ache that decreases with a pain reliever, some heat and time after moving a bit from the morning. For others, the pain is sharp and has become a chronic pain that lingers forever. What people may not realize that if a joint is injured and was not properly treated, it can and will continue an inflammatory state leading to early degeneration.

A friend asked me this week, “What do adjustments actually do to the spine besides make a cracking noise”? He knows that every time adjustments are performed on him, he feels better, had more energy and flexibility and wanted to understand precisely why. However, to fully grasp the concept and philosophy of chiropractic, you must recognize how the body works and what may cause problems that minimize the body’s natural healing and function. We all understand that the body is a self-healing, self-regulating entity. For example, when you fall and get a bruise and cut, what naturally happens in days? It heals. That is the best definition of health I explain to my patients. Health is not how you feel but how you function and heal, which is coincidently the first four letters of the word Health! When the body…

Stress is the number one cause of most, if not all pains and diseases. The three types of stressors are: a) chemical-what we eat and breath b) mental stress-relationship, finances, work, etc c) physical stress – sports injuries, falls, traumas, car accidents This information is about the physical stress most people do not know about. It causes the most damage to the spine and leads to chronic issues such as arthritis and ongoing muscle and joint pain. It’s repetitive stress. In today’s workplace, about 86% of people sit at the computer. Even worse, surveys revealed that after work, an average person sits another 3-5 hours when driving, eating dinner, reading and watching shows/movies and sleep for 8 hours leading to a sedentary life of 21 hours. This repetitive lifestyle has been labeled sitting disease, which is the major cause of…

A Fort Lauderdale Chiropractor Explains the Importance of Incorporating Balance Exercises into Your Workout Routines. A Fort Lauderdale Chiropractor might ask “What is the number #1 component that all living things(including parasites, plants, etc.) have for survival?” The answer might surprise you.   It’s not air or water. It’s Motion. We must be able to move to thrive in life. Adult humans are made of 206 bones and about 650 muscles. We are not meant to sit 8 hours a day working on computers. We are meant to move. That’s why gyms have become abundant for many to get or stay in shape for a healthier body and more importantly to prevent disease. We all know about the importance of strength and cardiovascular training because that’s the majority of what we see and do at the gym. However, we need to understand…

Take a seat? Maybe not. A Ft. Lauderdale chiropractor tells how sitting is bad for the body – and for the bones. If you’re seated as you read this article, get up and move around afterward. Do that a lot. Because sitting for long hours is bad for your body – it’s bad for muscles, bad for your cardiovascular system and may even cause disease such as cancer. Listen to your doctor of chiropractic in Fort Lauderdale when it comes to getting the body moving through constant exercise. It doesn’t have to be intense aerobics – passive walking is enough to help your bones and muscles. If you’re doubting any of this, consider: An article from The Washington Post discusses the myriad problems associated with prolonged sitting, starting with decreased blood flow and the burning of less fat by muscles,…
