Voice For Health – Bad Vibes

Dr. Freedman

Prolonged exposure to vibrations emitted by hand tools can give rise to a condition known as Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS). Early symptoms usually include pain, tingling, numbness, and increased sensitivity to cold, eventually followed by impaired sensibility and limited dexterity. Smokers and people who work in cold temperatures may be particularly vulnerable to this condition, ...

Voice For Health – A Wristed Development

Dr. Freedman

Every golfer strives to make solid contact with the ball. Because the grip of the hand is the body’s only connection to the club, wrist action is a critical part of the game. However, the repetitive motions of golf and the high speed of the typical golf swing place the wrists at high risk for ...

Voice For Health – Aching Hips

Dr. Freedman

Located in joints throughout the body, “bursae” are fluid-filled sacs that are positioned between bones and soft tissues, acting as cushions to help reduce friction. “Bursitis” results when a bursa becomes inflamed and swells with fluid. The most common form of hip bursitis, “trochanteric bursitis,” involves the broad, flat area of bone (“greater trochanter”) at ...

Voice For Health – Athletes’ Off-Field Adjustments

Dr. Freedman

When athletes experience injuries that throw their vertebrae out of alignment and thereby inhibit spinal movement, the resultant vertebral “subluxations” (misalignments) interfere with athletic performance. Chiropractic treatment can help relieve pain and restore movement to affected joints by realigning the spine with “adjustments.” These manual manipulations of vertebral joints consist of pressing forcefully in the ...

Voice For Health – Not Just A Hiccup

Dr. Freedman

Because breathing is an involuntary action, we often take it for granted. Fortunately, we have the “phrenic nerve” to thank for controlling the breathing process. This nerve, which begins in the brain and continues down to the C-3 through C-5 cervical spinal roots in the neck (where it splits), controls the diaphragm muscle. During the ...

Voice For Health – Soccer Safety

Dr. Freedman

While soccer is generally regarded to be a safer sport than football, it has its fair share of collisions (with other players, the ground, posts, and the ball) that lead to injury and concussions. Among the most avoidable of these impacts involves “heading the ball,” which is an accepted passing, clearing, and scoring tactic. However, ...

Voice For Health – Get Ahead Of The Curve

Dr. Freedman

“Scoliosis” is a threedimensional deformity that occurs when the spine becomes abnormally rotated and curved sideways. This irregular curvature may begin in infancy, the juvenile years, or during adolescence. If allowed to progress, scoliosis can cause the ribs to crowd together on one side, while ribs on the opposite side separate widely. The curvature may ...

Voice For Health – Front And Center

Dr. Freedman

If a pregnant woman notes that her balance is a little off, it is due to the fact that her center of gravity is shifting. As her belly grows larger, a pregnant woman’s pelvis starts to naturally roll forward into an anterior pelvic tilt. This shift leads to changes in the alignment of the spine, ...

Voice For Health – Out Of Sight And Mind

Dr. Freedman

According to the National Headache Foundation, four out of five migraine sufferers experience sensitivity to light during a migraine. This phenomenon may be explained by the fact that the group of nerves called the “superior cervical sympathetic ganglion” (SCSG), which is located opposite the second and third cervical vertebrae, directly affects the face, eyes, ears, ...

Voice For Health – Curious Cases Of Nerves

Dr. Freedman

“Fibromyalgia” is a chronic disorder of unknown origin. It is characterized by tenderness at specific points in the body, including the neck, shoulders, back, hips, and upper and lower extremities.
