Voice For Health – Mortal Danger

Dr. FreedmanIt is often pointed out that four out of five individuals will suffer back pain at some point in their lives. Now, there is new information that may lead us to believe that back pain is as potentially harmful to overall health as it is pervasive. According to a study of nearly 4,400 adult twins aged 70 years and older, those with spinal pain (back and neck) had a 13 percent higher chance every year of dying. This finding should come as significant news to anyone who thinks that back pain is more of a hindrance than it is potentially life-threatening. Spinal pain may be part of a pattern of poor health and poor functional ability, which increase mortality risk.

Regular chiropractic treatments usually focus on spinal manipulation and alignment to aid pain management and stimulate the body’s self-healing abilities. Realignment of the spine is thought to reduce pressure on the central nervous system. To schedule an appointment for chiropractic care, please call FAMILY PRACTICE OF CHIROPRACTIC at 617- 472-4220. We are located at 112 McGrath Hwy., Quincy.

P.S. Low back pain is ranked as the highest contributor to disability in the world.

Voice For Health – Productive Thinking

Dr. FreedmanAfter suffering a back-related injury, any responsible worker wants to get back to work quickly. While bed rest was once recommended, that strategy has been largely discounted in favor of getting back to normal activities as soon as possible. As the injured worker does this, it is important to restore his or her confidence so that no further harm will result. Chiropractic can help in the recovery effort by addressing underlying structural misalignments that give rise to muscle spasms and other softtissue stresses. It is essential to address pain-related immobility in the early stages of disability so that imbalances do not lead to chronic problems. Chiropractic’s proactive approach gets patients back on their feet and back to work.

It has been said that a body in motion stays in motion and a body at rest stays at rest. Whether at rest or in motion, your lifestyle choices impact the health and function of your joints. Chiropractic care provides a safe and natural option to locate, correct and prevent joint dysfunctions. It can play a vital role in keeping your body balanced, flexible and functioning at its best. To schedule an appointment, please call FAMILY PRACTICE OF CHIROPRACTIC at 617-472- 4220. Our practice is located at 112 McGrath Hwy., Quincy.

P.S. Injured athletes are more apt to “work through” back pain because they are highly motivated and not depressed in the way that some injured workers are.

Voice For Health – Avoiding Injury On The Slopes

Dr. FreedmanTo get in shape for the ski season, skiers should first attend to their cardiovascular fitness, which can be developed through rollerblading, tennis, and soccer. These sports feature lateral movements similar to skiing and provide a good cardio workout. To reduce risk of injury, skiers should look to improve flexibility in their hips, thighs, groins, and lower backs. Next comes strength training, which focuses on the quadriceps muscles to protect the knees. Balance and agility are also vital and can be developed by doing lateral box jumps and tuck jumps. If any of these exercises prove problematic, chiropractic assessment and treatment can lead to improved joint flexibility, balance, and agility, which are needed to improve muscle strength and cardio fitness.

Here at FAMILY PRACTICE OF CHIROPRACTIC, our mission is to support as many people as possible in their quest for health and to educate them about chiropractic so they in return can educate others. To schedule an appointment please call 617-472-4220. We see infants, children, pregnant women, adults and also patients into their 80s and 90s. We often help patients that have tried many other types of treatment, even other chiropractors, to no avail. Our practice is located at 112 McGrath Hwy., Quincy.

P.S. If you begin falling on the ski slopes, resist the urge to throw out your hand to stop yourself, and do not try to stand up while still sliding.

Voice For Health – Spinal Wear and Tear

Dr. FreedmanJust as wear-and-tear osteoarthritis can cause pain and limit mobility of the hips, knees, and finger joints, it can also affect the spinal (vertebral) joints. The term “spondylosis” refers to wear-and-tear changes to the spine, x-ray evidence of which can be seen in nearly everyone over the age of 70 and even in 10% of people by the age of 25 years. At whatever age spondylosis occurs, only some affected individuals experience problems as a result. Symptoms include muscle spasm and pain, loss of balance and difficulty walking, a grinding or popping sensation that occurs during movement of the spine, and headaches. Symptoms differ by what part of the spine is affected. Chiropractic treatment targets affected joints. Chiropractors believe that a healthy nervous system is synonymous with a healthy body. A subluxation, or the misalignment of a vertebra, may distress the nervous system and lead to a disorder causing back and neck pain.

At the FAMILY PRACTICE OF CHIROPRACTIC, we see infants, children, pregnant women, adults and also seniors. We can help patients with sports injuries, chronic pain, and acute trauma. To schedule an appointment, please call 617-472- 4220. Our practice is located at 112 McGrath Hwy., Quincy.

P.S. Spondylosis in the lower back may produce weakness or other nerve-related problems that affect the legs, rather than the arms or legs, which are affected more by spondylosis in the neck (cervical spondylosis)

Voice For Health – A Matter Of Course

Dr. FreedmanIf you plan to golf on vacation, remember that swinging a golf club exerts a lot of strain on muscles and tendons. In fact, a golf swing places a higher compressive load on the lower back (eight times body weight) than running (three times) or even rowing (seven times). That is why a single swing can produce a herniated disc or even a compression fracture of one of the vertebral bodies. Although extremely painful, these injuries are rare. Muscle strains, however, are quite common due to the twisting that is required for a good swing. While the “modern” swing, with its inverted-C follow through, may make for longer drives than the “classic” swing, it also produces more torque and more injuries.

When sports injuries occur, chiropractors can help with things like strains and sprains, tendinitis, and stress fractures. Studies show that chiropractic treatment for low back pain is one of the most effective and cost-efficient approaches to restore mobility, reduce pain, and help people return to normal activities. To schedule an appointment, please call FAMILY PRACTICE OF CHIROPRACTIC at 617- 472-4229. We are located at 112 McGrath Hwy., Quincy.

P.S. Chiropractic treatment may improve your golf swing by readying your body for the forces that a swing generates.
