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 – 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 – 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 – Are You Getting Shorter?

Dr. Freedman

While estimates vary, it is generally thought that, on average, people lose between one-quarter-of-an-inch to onehalf-an-inch every decade past the age of 40 or 50. These losses tend to increase more during the later years, with women generally losing more height than men. Much of this shrinkage is due to fluid loss in the gel-like ...
