Newhall Back Pain Chiropractor

Back pain: Chiropractic care is the safest, most effective method of treating back pain, both acute and chronic. Most back pain is due to compressive forces on the spine and surrounding structures. These compressive forces include gravity, excessive body weight, prolonged periods of sitting/standing, poor sleep patterns, physical loads (purses, backpacks, tool belts, i.e.), and arthritic change due to the aging process. Chiropractic techniques are used to counteract compressive forces on the spine by creating joint space and eliminating pressure on nervous and soft tissue structures thereby increasing range of motion patterns and decreasing pain levels.

Newhall Neck Pain Chiropractor

Neck pain: Chiropractic care has been proven safe and effective in the treatment and prevention of neck pain. Chiropractic aids in the elimination of muscle spasms that create spinal restrictions due to postural faults, poor sleep patterns, arthritic change, chronic injuries, and muscular strains. Chiropractic alleviates neck pain with gentle yet effective physical, hands-on medicine which allows for a re-alignment of the vertebrae as well as a decrease in muscle spasticity. Increased oxygen to the brain helps to remediate headaches due in origin from referred cervical pain/dysfunction.

Newhall Sciatica Chiropractor

Sciatica: Sciatica is a term used to describe pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which branches from your lower back through your hips and buttocks and down each leg. Chiropractic care can assist in alleviating this pain through the use of manual adjustments designed to created space in the lumbar vertebrae allowing for proper nerve flow.

Newhall Headaches/Migraines Chiropractor

Headaches/Migraines: Chiropractic care can decrease pain associated with headaches. Manual adjustments create space in the vertebral column allowing for increased oxygen and blood flow to the head and neck. Headaches caused by muscular pain originating in the cervical spine can be eliminated by addressing the muscular tension of the shoulder stabilizers and deep neck flexors that attach to the cervical spine and create restriction of head movement. Postural and sleep training help to maintain proper cervical function and prevent the occurrence of headaches.

Newhall Pregnancy/Prenatal Care Chiropractor

Pregnancy/Prenatal Care: Being regularly adjusted during pregnancy is vital for the proper alignment of the spine as it supports a growing fetus. Chiropractic during pregnancy can maintain correct birth position of the baby as it allows for space in the birth canal. Regular adjustments prepare the body for a healthy and efficient birthing process.

Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic Adjustments Do you struggle with pain? Back and neck pain, the most common complaints in patients seeking chiropractic help, can chip away at every part of your life. Spinal manipulation or adjustment is a holistic therapy that focuses on maintaining a healthy body and overall wellness by properly aligning the spine. Basically, it helps replace your body into a position where it’s allowed to heal, which can also free up your immune system to focus on keeping you healthy, think clearly, move effortlessly, and perform better. This treatment also works with old or new trauma while increasing range of motion and reducing nerve irritability, thus improving function. While many people find spinal manipulation to be scary, it is actually quite safe. In fact, the World Health Organization states, “when employed skillfully and appropriately, chiropractic care is safe and effective for the prevention and management of a number of health problems.” However, there may be some slight side effects, such as discomfort, headache, and fatigue, which go away around 24 to 48 hours. While there are many reasons to visit a chiropractor, the top reasons to be adjusted include: Back and neck pain (especially lower back pain) Headaches Ear infections Arthritis or joint pain Asthma Scoliosis Blood pressure Organ function Surgery prevention Healthy pregnancy       One of the best things about chiropractic adjustment is that it’s a drug-free and surgery-free way of healing naturally, but here are the other top benefits associated with chiropractic adjustments: Faster pain relief Because chiropractors can quickly identify the mechanical issues that cause your pain, they can also provide nearly immediate relief... read more

Chiropractic Benefits During Pregnancy

Pregnancy is an important time in a woman’s life.  It is an important time because a woman must take extra care in a variety of ways to ensure a healthy prenatal experience. One of the most intense elements during gestation, especially as the pregnancy progresses, is increased stress on the spine and joints.   The protrusion and added weight to the structure can cause this stress.  The added weight will pull the spine and joints out of alignment and can also result in pelvic misalignment.   Increased weight bearing upon the spine, joints, and pelvis can lead to pain and discomfort. Fortunately, chiropractic care can help to realign the posture of a pregnant woman and relieve some pain and discomfort as well as result in a healthier delivery.   The effects on posture as a result of being pregnant can lead to complications. According to American Pregnancy, “This can affect the mother’s ability to have a natural, non-invasive birth.  Breech and posterior positions can interfere with the natural ease of labor and lead to interventions such as C-sections”.  Such effects are because the spine serves as the information highway of the body.  Pregnancy compromises this message highway, often causing nervous system miscommunication.  Keeping the spine aligned through chiropractic care can lead to a healthier delivery through better communication between the reproductive and nervous systems, due to an aligned spine.   “New Life Chiropractic and Wellness”, a Santa Clarita chiropractor, can help to ensure that the body stays in alignment through the pregnancy.  A trained professional will assess the patient’s current posture, make recommendations for postural re-alignment, and make suggestions on how... read more

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) Treatment

To all my female patients (or to my male patients who have a female in your life that is affected by PCOS), please read this post! Chances are that you suffer from polycystic ovarian syndrome or that you know someone who does. The good news is that there is hope for remdedy of your frustrating symptoms. Keep reading! PCOS is a common endocrine system disorder affecting 3 million women of reproductive age every year in the United States. PCOS is hallmarked by the following symptoms: infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods, excess hair growth, acne, obesity, and infertility. The following recent study from Alexandria University in Egypt was conducted to show how diet can greatly improve the symptoms of PCOS. They put 100 overweight women with PCOS on a diet similar to the Mediterranean Diet for 12 weeks. It was a “low glycemic load, anti-inflammatory diet based on combinations of nutrients (a combo diet) encouraging the consumption of legumes, fish, and low-fat dairy products in a Mediterranean context; with a composition of 25% proteins, 25% fat, and 50% carbohydrates. Diets were designed as reduced-energy, low-fat, low-saturated fat, and moderate-to-high fiber diets. The glycemic load was reduced by lowering sugar content in favor of more complex carbohydrates.” The women were told to exercise and had a caloric intake 500 calories below their estimated calorie maintenance level (expending more calories than they were taking in). Red meat was limited to once every 2 weeks, and chicken no more than once a week. Fish was to be consumed twice weekly or more. Total fat intake was limited. Use of spices was encouraged and... read more

Is Chiropractic Treatment Safe?

Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest drug-free, non-invasive therapies available for the treatment of neuromusculoskeletal complaints. Although chiropractic has an excellent safety record, no health treatment is completely free of potential adverse effects. The risks associated with chiropractic, however, are very small. Many patients feel immediate relief following chiropractic treatment, but some may experience mild soreness or aching, just as they do after some forms of exercise. Current literature shows that minor discomfort or soreness following spinal manipulation typically fades within 24 hours. Neck pain and some types of headaches are treated through precise cervical manipulation. Cervical manipulation, often called a neck adjustment, works to improve joint mobility in the neck, restoring range of motion and reducing muscle spasm, which helps relieve pressure and tension. Neck manipulation is a remarkably safe procedure. While some reports have associated upper high-velocity neck manipulation with a certain kind of stroke, or vertebral artery dissection, there is not yet a clear understanding of the connection. The occurrence appears to be very rare—1 in 5.85 million manipulations— based on the clinical reports and scientific studies to date. If you are visiting your doctor of chiropractic with upper-neck pain or headache, be very specific about your symptoms. This will help your doctor of chiropractic offer the safest and most effective treatment, even if it involves referral to another health care provider. It is important for patients to understand the risks associated with some of the most common treatments for musculoskeletal pain — prescription and over-the-counter nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) — as these treatments may carry risks significantly greater than those of chiropractic... read more
