Back Doctors In San Diego Utilize Spinal Decompression Therapy To Get Rid Of Back Pain

Friday, November 26th, 2010

Spinal decompression therapy is a type of nonsurgical spinal therapy that is also noninvasive. It is used to treat severe and chronic back pain that is a result from different types of spinal conditions. Some of these back pains are caused because of pressure that is exerted by an expanded spinal disc to the spinal nerves.

Back pain can also be a result of several arthritic issues. It turns out that there are many different health conditions that could be benefited from this type of treatment. Many patients find quick relief from this type of therapy.

Spinal decompression chiropractors in San Diego use spinal decompression therapy to treat various types of conditions. Of all the different types of conditions that spinal decompression therapy could help, a herniated and bulging disc is the most common. When the spinal disc is herniated, it exerts a lot of pressure on the spinal nerves; this health condition results in a lot of excruciating pain. The decompression treatment will relieve the pressure from the expanded or damaged disk and allows it to go back to its normal size.

Degenerative disc disease is another common condition that requires back treatment. Spinal bodies can be compressed when there is a loss of disc height. This is caused by spinal compression. When there is too much compression, the surrounding nerves can be constricted which leads to back pain. Spinal decompression therapy can help to alleviate the pressure on the degenerative discs, helping to alleviate the back.

Spinal decompression therapy treatment in San Diego is available at New Century Spine Centers. The chiropractors there are specialists in the treatment of back and neck pain. Spinal decompression helps pain from disc herniations, disc bulges, sciatica, facet syndrome, and disc degeneration. New Century Spine Centers can be reached at 619-630-9153.

5 Common Mistakes When Thinking About Your Painful Experience.

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

It would be safe to assume as a San Diego chiropractor that at one point or another you have had some type of ache in your body. This is a pretty secure assumption. I would bet that you have also had some kind of difficulty that was brought on by something very small. Let me give you an example to think about. You wake up in the morning and walk into the bathroom and as you go to squeeze the toothpaste out of the tube and you drop the lid on the floor. So you bend down to pick it up and zappo, lightning sharp ache shoots up your spine and back down again. You try to stand up straight but for some reason it feels like someone is pressing against your back causing you to hunch over and making it nearly impossible to straighten up.

Here’s another typical ache invoking experience. You rush out the door because you are late for your appointment. As you settle into the car you remember that you forgot your keys so you hurry back into the house retrieve them and return to the car. As you start the engine and turn your head to back out of the driveway…whammo, someone stuck you with a hot barbecue poker in the back of the neck causing you great difficulty to return your head to a normal position without feeling that searing ache that we all enjoy.

So it may not be a toothpaste lid or the turning of your head that provokes you to fall to your knees in anguish, but I am almost certain that you have experienced a similar type situation in which the action you performed such not have caused SO MUCH ACHE! There are a few different responses to this type of circumstances. Before we talk about those, let’s just get real philosophical for a moment.

If you were hanging out with Hippocrates right now at Starbucks sipping on a Latte and talking about life and science and the human experience, how do you think he would respond if you asked him if it was ordinary for the body to respond like yours did when you bent over to pick up that heavy toothpaste lid or when you whipped your head around to back the cart out of the dirt road. I would guess that he would first ask you what toothpaste was and then once that was cleared up he would tell you no. This is not a normal physiological response for your body to such a minimal action. The reaction does not equal the action. Okay, philosophy class being over let’s get back to how you would respond to this state of affairs. Here are 5 ordinary mistakes that I have observed from patients at the chiropractic office in San Diego who experience these types of situations.

1. I use a heating pad or I took a hot shower on the area and it felt great. I am not against heating pads or heat but here is the situation. When you have an acute injury you generally should not put heat on it. Heat opens up the blood vessels which are already engorged even more causing more swelling and fluid accumulation in the injured area. This will result in relaxation for up to 12 hours after heat use and then ache worse than the initial event after the trip to lala land has ended. There are exceptions but for the majority of people please resist the urge to use heat unless I’ve told otherwise.

2. I thought it would go away but it has been two to three weeks and the ache hasn’t stopped. Ouch, this one is not good! The real question from me to you is why you thought that the ache would go away. Let me give you a simple analogy. Pretend the oil light on your car goes on, would you continue driving until it went out and just assume that the problem went away. I hope not. This is the best analogy that I can think of to relate to the ache signal that your body is sending you. Don’t pretend there isn’t something wrong. Get to the cause of the problem. Come get adjusted by a chiropractor immediately or as soon as possible after the initial event.

3. I don’t know why this happened, I am totally healthy, and there is nothing wrong with me. This is my favorite one from males. Guys, we have to admit to some facts. Women are much better at taking care of themselves then we are. The reason is because they are willing to tell someone when they aren’t feeling well and then they try to get help for it. Generally speaking, men are much more willing to put up with little problems that they experience. This is not good in the long run. One little crisis + one little difficulty + one problem = One BIG PROBLEM. The proof is that women tend to live something like 4 years longer than men. Surprise, surprise, I wonder if we men just think Oh well we aren’t going to live as long anyways so why not just put up with what we got and die sooner. This is of course some faulty logic because if we did take care of ourselves we would live longer.

4. I know that I only need one or two adjustments and everything will be fine.  Just crack my back and I’ll be all better. The only man I know in history who performed one treatment on someone and they were fine was Jesus. I am not Jesus. I don’t know any chiropractors named Jesus. Normally when people tell me the chiropractor fixed them in one adjustment and I look in their files, or consult with the other chiropractors I see that they have been adjusted 4 times on the low end and 8-10 on the high end (normal, about 6 visits) for an acute problem. My goal is to see you out of ache as quickly as possible so that you can function normally, but my goals do not end there! This leads me to the next common mistake.

5. Not getting adjusted by a chiropractor regularly to prevent these occurrences in your life. Now I am not saying that if you get regular adjustments your life is going to be perfect. Life is not perfect. I myself get regular adjustments. I don’t stop getting adjusted all together because I know that if I didn’t get regular adjustments and a flare up occurred, it would be a lot worse than it normally is. Our bodies are not perfect but if we work preventatively to keep things moving and aligned throughout the course of our lives a lot of these irritating aches could be avoided.

The joints of your spine are some of the key messengers of your nervous system. If they are not working there is no way for you to know because you cannot see them. Ache is your only signal and by then a lot of times it is already too late. Chiropractors are trained to detect problems with these joints and help prevent the ache before it occurs. Waiting too long will only cause more serious problems.

Science has proven that nerve endings are all affected during a chiropractic adjustment. The goal of chiropractic adjustment is to get you out of pain first of all, but to keep you ache free and fully functioning is the main idea. Chiropractors want to work with you to develop a healthy body which is firing on all cylinders so that you have a nervous system which is quick, alert, strong and ready to fight off any problems that you might encounter throughout the day. This is what regular chiropractic adjustments do. They help keep your central nervous system strong and healthy and give you the ability to live a better quality of life as far as your health is concerned. My desire is that you would all experience life and health to the fullest. For more information, contact New Century Spine Centers in San Diego at 619-630-9153. You can be treated by the best chiropractors and spinal decompression specialists.

San Diego, CA – If you suffer from relentless and annoying pain in your lower back and you want to end it NOW – please continue reading this health bulletin. It may be the most important thing you read this year! Why is this? Finally, someone is speaking out and revealing to San Diego residents the shocking truth of getting rid of low back pain once and for all that many MDs and drug companies would prefer you never found out!
What Your Doctor Doesn’t Know About Low Back Pain CAN Hurt YOU!
If you’ve gone to your family or company doctor complaining of low back pain, you may have heard from your doctor, “You’re probably suffering from a sprain or strain and some bed rest and medication will take care of it.”
This is a sure sign that your doctor may not be the person to talk to if you really want to get out of pain fast!
You see, most MDs don’t have the training or experience to diagnose and treat the REAL cause of your low back pain. Not knowing what to look for will only result in ineffective treatments and you being in pain longer!
Dark Secrets Of Pain Medications Finally Revealed…
Taking any pain medication, whether it’s over the counter or prescription, will never cure you of low back pain! At best, these drugs will only offer 4-6 hours of
relief by sabotaging your body’s
ability to feel pain from your
lower back.
This puts you at risk in 2 ways:
1. Pain is your body’s way of keeping you from injuring your back even more. Take a pill and you’re disabling your body’s first line of defense. And, 2. Taking drugs, even aspirin, can have damaging and sometimes deadly effects on your stomach lining, kidneys, and liver.
So before you take another medication to help you with your pain, ask yourself this question: Are the risks (a chance at increased pain, and dangerous side effects) worth a measly 4-6 hours of numbed out pain?
Here’s Why Back Surgery Is Only 50-53% Effective…
If your doctor has suggested back surgery to relieve your pain, there is important information you simply MUST know! You see, many MDs don’t have the training to detect the root cause of all your pain.
If your doctor’s diagnosis is incorrect, how can a surgery which is performed under that diagnosis be helpful to you? This is why the vast majority of all low back surgeries are deemed unnecessary and will only offer temporary relief, if any at all.
World Famous Study Uncovers Startling Results…
In search of a safe, effective, and natural treatment for low back pain, a team of university scientists performed a double
blind study. One group received
the traditional treatment of drugs
that most MDs prescribe. The
other group tried a drug and
surgery free method that’s been tried and tested for over 100 years. Both groups reported they felt better after one month. Now, this is where it gets interesting…
University Scientists Discover The #1 Treatment To Eliminate YOUR Back Pain Is…
