Ice is Nice!

Conventional wisdom has long held the idea that heat is best for aches and pains. This may be true for some situations, such as if you have sore muscles from increased physical activities or with certain infections. More often, however, it is the chronic painful conditions that people are seeking relief from. For this condition the underlying factor is inflammation in the joints and surrounding tissues and adding heat is like fuel to the fire. It may be soothing and comforting at the time but a couple hours after application the pain will be back and it will probably be worse. Ice is a better solution in this case if used correctly. The following are several suggestions to better utilize the ever effective, cheap, available and versatile ice pack.

Mattress Matters

 
images-184x184
 
A very common question around the office is “What kind of mattress do you recommend?” It makes sense that in this field there is a lot of talk about mattresses and the only conclusion or consensus that is clear is that there is no clear consensus. In this case, it seems that what is good for the goose might be just horrible for the gander. Many times the new-found bliss with a new mattress is only short lived. Some say that the Sleep Numbers bed, for instance, is fantastic for them, while others say that after about a month they cannot find a comfortable setting. There are many other specialty mattresses that similarly have mixed reviews among patients and these types tend to be very expensive comparably so it is a good idea to proceed with caution. Here we will make a few suggestions to help as you search for what works for you.

Pinched Nerves

What is a pinched nerve?
A pinched nerve occurs in a few different ways. The first way occurs when a bone or a joint is pressing on the nerve. Or a bulging disc or tight muscles surrounding a nerve can cause the intense pain of a pinched nerve. In some cases the pain from a pinched nerve is local, only surrounding the one nerve that is pinched. Sometimes the pain doesn't seem that bad a few pain pills take care of the problem. But other time the pain from a pinched nerve will radiate. A pinched nerve in the neck may radiate down the arms and spine. A pinched nerve in the lower spine will radiate through the legs.

Chiropractic care is not just for loosening up stiff joints and muscles while this is a primary means, the proper care and treatment of your spine can help to increase your overall wellness and your performance ability. If you think about it your spine is the core part of your body. Your spine not only holds the rest of your body erect but it also contains the spinal cord and the main nerves to the rest of the body. Making sure that your spine is correctly aligned and stays that way will help treat current medical issues and prevent medical issues later.

images-184x184
 
Most people we ask would rather have their painful problem fixed for the long-term instead of just until next time when it comes back and it's worse. This is why “Results” is what drives us and really is the basis of all we do. So whether you just need a tune up to feel better or you have a long-standing, debilitating, and complex problem, we've got a program for you. If your problem is severe, we will guide you through the whole process, from getting out of pain to correcting the underlying problem and stabilizing the body for full recovery.

Chiropractic

We are Sanpete County's spine health specialists. Nerve pressure or joint pressure is a sign of spinal malfunction and can cause debilitating pain. Further, these malfunctions can cause early degeneration and permanent damage if left untreated over time. If you are beginning to notice trouble in the back, arms, legs, or head, the problem likely involves the joints of the body and this is where we can really help. Chiropractic treatments restore proper function and movements to each motion segment of the spine and most other joints in the body as well.
 
 

Class IV Cold Laser

When treating stubborn, chronic, and debilitating conditions, one of the critical aspects is rate of healing in the tissues. This is why Laser is so helpful in restoring health in the tissues and leads to a high level of resolution with these conditions. Basically the laser increases rate of healing, decreases inflammation, and decreases pain. Class IV Cold Laser has been fantastic for our patients with impressively long lasting results.
 
 

Physical Therapy Modalities

After chiropractic treatment to the spine or other joints of the body, it is soothing and helpful in the healing process to use electrical and mechanical therapy modalities. This mainly helps to relax the muscles but also improves circulation and decreases soreness. Patients find that they just feel better as they leave the office.
