                                                                                                   Something Old is New Again –            

     The annual medical expenses for back pain treatment is staggering, so it’s no surprise that over 50% of all bankruptcies are a result of medical expenses.  Even back in 1982 around  50 billion dollars were spent in the U.S. for medical treatment of back pain alone, and 85% of that cost covered only about 10% of all patients – those who had developed chronic pain.  Chronic Back Pain is still the fastest-growing cause of medical disability in American today. 

     From 1971-1981, our population grew 12.5%, but there was a 168% rise in Back Pain Disabled patients.  Statistics showed that standard medical treatments, bed rest, tens, cortico-steroid injections, etc. were not effective.  Prominent researchers even suggested that medical management of back pain had actually promoted disability.

     Fast forward to the present, and see what WebMD says:  (my comments, in parentheses)

  1.  “Low back pain causes more disability than nearly 300 other conditions worldwide.”
  2.  “Low back pain is responsible for about 1/3 of work-related disability.”
  3.  “Low back pain is something almost all people experience at some point.”
  4.  “For the majority of people with low back pain, the specific cause is unclear.”  (And without proper training, knowledge and skills, proper care is impossible, and even minor back pain, can become chronic and disabling.)
  5. “Low back pain causes more global disability than any other health problem studied.”  (However, when a qualified practitioner knows the cause of a health problem – he knows how to correct it, and Chiropractors have known the cause of Back Pain for some 100 years.  That’s how they’ve been helping thousands of patients with chronic back pain.   

One wonders why most back pain sufferers still don’t know the value of chiropractic care, because another major study, reported almost 35 years ago in the British Medical Journal, stated that spinal manipulation is highly effective with long-term benefits for chronic and severe back pain sufferers.  The Rand Corporation concluded:  There is no longer any argument against skilled manipulation for most acute back pain, and there is more controlled trial evidence for spinal manipulation, than for any other treatment approach.  The greatest contraindication to manipulation, according to these and other studies, is a lack of training and skill.

     Doctors of Chiropractic are the only back pain specialists, specifically educated, trained and skilled in spinal manipulative therapy, which is now the most scientifically established method of care for low back pain.

     If you have low back pain, or know someone who does, contact us for a Complimentary Consultation, or if you need help finding a chiropractic doctor nearer to you, call us at (479) 294-6144.  We are here to help.

A few very important things you probably never heard of...because nobody told you.*
 
Chiropractic is MORE scientifically based than medicine within its realm of therapy.
 
A 10 year British government study found that chiropractic care is twice as effective and safer than medical care for back pain.
 
An Italian government study showed that chiropractic care reduced hospitalization by 87.6% and work loss by 75.5%.
 
A Saskatchewan University medical center study utilizing chiropractic care got 87% results within 2-3 weeks with a group of 171 medically unresponsive patients suffering for seven years.
 
An Ontario Government study utilizing world class economists found that chiropractic is not only medically "superior" and more cost effective but safer.  The study cautioned the Ontario government against many of the "untested, questionable or harmful" medical treatments and preferred chiropractic care over medical.  It further recommended chiropractors act as "gate keepers" in all hospitals directing appropriate care of back cases.
 
A Chicago hospital study showed that an orthopedic ward using chiropractic care was sending patients home well 7 - 9 days sooner than under medical care.
 
The largest HMO in the entire southeastern United States sent twelve patients who were medically diagnosed as needing disc surgery to a chiropractor, who corrected all twelve of the cases, saving the HMO major costs and possible surgical complications for the patient.
 
The world renowned RAND Corporation, the largest nonprofit research corporation in America outside of any university, found that spinal manipulation (as used by chiropractors) is an "appropriate: therapy. 
 
The Utah State worker's compensation records show that chiropractic outperformed medicine by a 10-1 margin in compensation costs.
 
The California and Oregon worker's compensation records show that chiropractic returned people back to work at half the time and cost of medicine.
 
UNNECESSARY surgery and drug reactions kill between 3,000 to 5,000 people EVERY WEEK.
 
The U.S. Office of Public Health found that 2/3 of the over the counter drugs do NOT do what its promoters claim.
 
Dorlands Medical Dictionary: Health is having all your parts, functioning properly, all the time. "An intact nervous system will lead to optimum functioning of the human body."
 
Gray's Anatomy:  "Every organ, system and function of the human body is under direct control of the central nervous system."
 
The Healing Brain, Robert Ornstein, PhD and David Sobel, MD: "To understand health is to understand the central role of the brain and nervous system in maintaining the resistance of the body.  Health maintenance is the primary function of the brain..."
 
Chang Ha Suh, PhD, Spinal Biomechanics expert, University of Colorado:  "Subluxation (spinal misalignment) is very real, we have documented it to the extent that no one can dispute it's existence.  Vertebral Subluxations change the entire health of the body by causing structural dysfunction of the spine and nerve interference.  The weight of a dime on a spinal nerve will reduce nerve transmission as much as 60%."
 
Dr. James Woddersee, Neurosurgeon:  "Subluxations of vertebrae occur in all parts of the spine, and in all degrees.  When the dislocation is so slight as to not affect the spinal cord, it will still produce disturbances in the spinal nerves passing off from the foramina."
 
AMA Orthopedic Councils Annual Conference of February 16-19, 1980 reported;  "Manipulative Therapy" involves the application of accurately determined and specifically directed manual forces to the body. The objective is to improve mobility in areas that are restricted whether the restrictions are within the joint, connective tissues or in skeletal muscles. The consequences may be the improvement of posture and locomotion and the relief of pain and discomfort, the improvement of function elsewhere in the body and the enhancement of the sense of well-being." 
 
NOTE: Chiropractic physicians are the only doctors specifically educated and trained to detect and correct the vertebral subluxation with the chiropractic adjustment, sometimes referred to as manipulative therapy

Why are you living with back pain when there is a non-invasive, JAMA recommended and drugless solution?

Back pain is a miserable- even crippling condition.  You may not be able to enjoy sports, work or even take a short drive sitting in the car.  A good night sleep is rare and it's hard for others to understand how you feel.

If you are suffering from back pain, it may be relieved or eliminated with chiropractic adjustments, even if you've been told you need surgery.

Surgery always carries risk and should be avoided, if possible.  Even a landmark article from JAMA* says that patients should try chiropractic before resorting to surgical intervention.

Chiropractic has been helping people for over a hundred years, from tiny babies to the elderly, with back pain, bulging discs, numbness, shooting pain, muscle spasm, sprains and strains.

That's why many music, sports and movie stars enjoy better health today with chiropractic care.  These celebrities have the means to hire anyone they want- and they choose chiropractic doctors to help them.

Here's what some other top medical researchers say about chiropractic:

"Manipulation (chiropractic adjustments), with or without exercise, improved symptoms more that medical care did after both 3 and 12 months" British Medical Journal

"Chiropractor’s manipulation of the spine was more helpful than any of the following: traction, massage, biofeedback, acupuncture, injection of steroids into the spine, back corsets and ultrasound."  Stanley Bigos, MD, Professor of Orthopedic Surgery

This means in just a matter of weeks you could be enjoying life again.

Imagine your life changing for the better and begin your journey to pain-free, normal living.  Feel joints and muscles relax and become more supple.  Feel strength increase in your muscles.  When you begin to feel the motion returning to your joints, you're reducing and even preventing the chances of disability and crippling in the future.

Join the many patients who have discovered that chiropractic care is the single most important solution to back pain.  Isn't it time you discovered chiropractic too?

Life is short, but it's too long to live in pain.

 “With the latest buzz from Washington about cancer, and all the products we use and foods we eat that are toxic, it sounds like you have been right on the mark in your articles. I am so concerned about my family being exposed to toxic chemicals that we aren’t even aware of. ”

Answer:

Yes, sadly, I’m afraid I have been “on the mark”. However, this information has been around for decades and I am glad that it’s finally being ad­dressed through an agency that so many people put their faith in. Perhaps now, they will listen and begin to make personal changes.

The world has changed greatly in the last century. Indus­try has destroyed almost all of our fresh air, water, and food supplies. And unfortunately, the human body cannot adapt quickly enough to offset the damage done by the toxicity in our environment.

To show just how bad things really are, a recent study showed that of the 280 chemicals found in the placentas of new­borns; 180 chemicals caused cancer in humans, 217 chemi­cals are toxic to the brain and nervous system and 208 cause birth defects. Teflon was one of the most common toxic chemi­cals found, and these babies had barely lived outside the womb.

Chances are, you have also been exposed to heavy metals like arsenic and lead. They can be found in pesticides, glass, wood preservatives, fertilizers, paint, batteries, plumbing and ink. And the toxins in cosmetics, hair color, and pet products are equally as toxic.

The good news is that there are natural steps you can take to chelate toxins from your body and your children’s bodies. Chlorella is a great natural chelator. Whole body cleansing is another way to offset the damages of toxicity. Fresh cilantro has been shown to remove mercury from the body, and adding alkaline water to your diet is extremely beneficial,

By removing the toxins from your body, you can improve your health in so many ways; heart health, weight issues, aller­gies, chronic pain, digestive problems, eye health and even your mood and energy can improve, with a simple detoxification protocol.

Maybe you can’t fix all the pollution problems on the planet, but you can start in your own home, and even your neighborhood, by providing your family with natural home products, clean air, alkaline water and organic food. And as we’ve also discussed in previous articles, adding nutritional supplements, and having a properly functioning nervous system is always necessary for you and your family to have optimum health, and be able to better cope in a toxic world.

If you are ready for a solution to your health concerns, call our clinic for a complimentary consultation. As an multidisci­plinary health care group, we offer chiropractic, acupuncture, BioCranial, CRA nutrition, weight loss and whole body cleans­ing.
