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.

Voice For Health – Don’t Get Frozen Out

Dr. Freedman“Adhesive capsulitis” (commonly known as “frozen shoulder”) occurs when the capsule of connective tissue surrounding the shoulder joint develops chronic inflammation, thickens, and tightens. Symptoms include gradual pain when moving the shoulder followed by increased stiffness that limits range of motion. Most cases of frozen shoulder follow a specific pattern. First, there is an acute phase that is characterized by significant pain and functional impairment. This is followed by a progressive stiffening phase as shoulder motion worsens. The shoulder joint may become so tight and stiff that it is nearly impossible to carry out simple movements, such as simply raising the arm. Treatment consisting of gentle stretching exercises and manipulation of the shoulder joint helps get the shoulder moving again.

Instead of covering up your symptoms with drugs, at FAMILY PRACTICE OF CHIROPRACTIC, we will help determine if your health problem, such as frozen shoulder, can be helped through gentle chiropractic care – without drugs or surgery. Call us at 617.472.4220 to schedule an appointment. We’re located at 112 McGrath Hwy., Quincy, where you will be fully educated as to what is happening to you and how we can help. If you’re suffering from pain, try a safe, effective alternative: chiropractic care. We have the services you require. We are able to adjust patients sitting, standing, or lying down to accommodate any level of discomfort.

P.S. While the cause of frozen shoulder is not exactly known, patients with diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, cardiovascular disease, and thyroid disorders seem to be at greater risk.

Voice For Health – Sustaining Performance

Dr. FreedmanThe relationship between chiropractic and fitness has been redefined. Although most chiropractors still focus on helping people prevent and recover from back and joint injuries and misalignments, more attention is being focused on preventing injuries among exercisers and athletes who want to preserve their fitness. This trend is born of greater interest in exercise and healthy lifestyles. Exercise-minded individuals are likely to find that they can learn a lot about their bodies’ structure from a chiropractor, who has a great deal of knowledge and experience with biomechanics. A chiropractor can assess problems and weaknesses as well as design a detailed program to meet active people’s needs. Along with good nutrition, exercise is a key factor in maintaining health

Let the staff of professionals at FAMILY PRACTICE OF CHIROPRACTIC help you achieve optimum health. We promote a drugless, non-invasive form of health care that addresses your lifestyle and any physical issues affecting your joints and spine through procedures such as custom exercise routines. Call us at 617.472.4220 to schedule an appointment. Make regular chiropractic care your first choice, not a last resort. We’re located at 112 McGrath Hwy., Quincy, where we’re currently accepting new patients. We offer computerized spinal scans.

P.S. A chiropractor can provide runners and gym goers with valuable insights into their musculoskeletal systems that can improve their performance.
