Five Most Dangerous Words "Maybe it will get Better"

tc-news__main_june13Golf and Chiropractic are a natural fit. For years, golf back pain has been accepted by golfers as some kind of badge of honour. But now golfers everywhere are beginning to realize the benefits of having regular Chiropractic care to treat their golf back pain.

9 Great Reasons to Visit Your Chiropractor

To Improve Posture
Spinal and postural re-education occurs with rehabilitative techniques since the body's proprioceptors have the ability to learn. Spinal adjustments help to improve postural and kinaesthetic awareness.

tcnews_apr2013_mainThe modern world is becoming increasingly complex, and the demands on our time and attention are many. Our jobs are also more complex, and the business world has become more competitive. Physical stresses such as sound, air and water pollution have worsened over the last century. We are also, because of electronic media and the Internet, aware of troubles and tragedies around the world that previous generations would never have known about, creating anxiety. Taken together, these assaults on our senses create a physical and emotional reaction.

Chiropractors focus on and place a great deal of significance on the healthy structure of the spine and the function of the nervous system. The spinal bones serve not only to protect the delicate spinal cord but also provide the body with stability, movement and good posture.

tcnews_feb2013_mainThe piriformis is a small muscle that spans from the sacrum to the hip bone across the middle of the buttock area. The muscle is located in proximity to the point where the sciatic nerve exits the pelvis on its way down the leg. When this muscle becomes tight, inflamed, injured or swollen, it can cause low back pain, buttock pain, and radiating pain or tingling into the leg via the sciatic nerve.

Treatment
The purpose of chiropractic treatment for piriformis syndrome is to restore the function of the pelvic and spinal joints that may be contributing to the problem. Your Chiropractor begins by evaluating your condition. This includes attention to the low back, as well as the sacroiliac and hip joints.

tcnews_dec_posturePosture is the position in which we hold our bodies while standing, sitting, or lying down. Good posture is the correct alignment of body parts supported by the right amount of muscle tension against gravity. Without posture and the muscles that control it, we would simply fall to the ground.

Normally, we do not consciously maintain normal posture. Instead, certain muscles do it for us, and we don't even have to think about it. Several muscle groups, including the hamstrings and large back muscles, are critically important in maintaining good posture. While the ligaments help to hold the skeleton together, these postural muscles, when functioning properly, prevent the forces of gravity from pushing us over forward. Postural muscles also maintain our posture and balance during movement.

tc-news_nov12IBS is a disorder that affects the large intestine and means, literally, that the patient has irritated bowels. IBS causes a great deal of pain and discomfort but does not permanently damage the large intestine, nor does it cause more serious conditions such as colon damage or cancer. For some people, IBS is mild and can be managed with diet and stress management. For many others, however, the condition is disabling, making it impossible to work or travel even short distances.

tcnews_oct2012_image1Core Stability' is probably one of the most used and abused terms floating around health clubs, amongst health professionals and personal trainers. Chiropractors are seeing an increasing number of people who have fallen victim to an often misguided approach and undertaken exercise regimes that have led to back pain and/or related hip and leg problems which can be linked to improperly 'training their core'.

'Core stability training' has often become mistakenly synonymous with 'strengthening your abs' (abdominal muscles). Unfortunately the real implications of research have often been misunderstood and many of the 'core muscle training' programmes offered within the gym and fitness industry are poorly conceived and delivered, frequently adopting directives such as 'suck the stomach in" – with the emphasis on 'pulling in', 'holding' and curling the spine forward.

tc_news_sept_image1Repeated stresses can lower the efficiency of the musculoskeletal system, alter proper movement in the joints or reduce the elasticity of muscles and tendons, producing strain of ligaments and irritation of nerves. It is possible that you may have ignored the signs of tiredness or even pain carrying on with your sport for too long without treatment, now to find yourself with a chronic injury.

Injury is not the only problem for professionals or amateur athletes. Many find that they reach <hr id="system-readmore" />a limit in their performance, not being able to improve further, however hard training they put in. This is why so many top athletes consult chiropractors to help them improve the functional efficiency of their body. Whether it is a previously undetected spinal mechanical problem, or years of poor body mechanics, the resulting injury could potentially signal the end of a sporting career. Whether you are an amateur sports enthusiast or a professional athlete, your body is prone to the same kind of injuries. It is common for Chiropractors to see athletes with:

news_july_1Numbness and tingling are abnormal sensations that can occur anywhere in your body however, numbness and tingling in the arms and legs are the most common association and complaint.

Sensations related to numbness and tingling in the arms and legs are often caused by an interruption in proper nerve flow. Activities like sitting or standing in one position for a long period of time can cause a temporary pinch on the nerve thereby interrupting its conduction. Continuous pressure on a nerve can cause lasting damage to the layers of the nerve known as myelin sheaths.
