Chiropractic Care and Osteopathic Medicine | Eastside Chiropractor

Chiropractic is a healthcare profession dedicated to the nonsurgical treatment of disorders of the nervous system or musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors maintain a focus on therapy and spinal manipulation for structures.

Can chiropractic care be paired with other treatment methods?
Several studies have concluded that manual treatments commonly used by physicians are usually effective for treating lower back pain, lumbar herniated disc for radiculopathy and neck pain, as well as other ailments. In fact, when patients using non-invasive chronic low back pain have been treated by chiropractors, the long-term outcome is improved by obtaining maintenance spinal manipulation after the first intensive manipulative treatment. New research studies have found that a combination of chiropractic and other treatment modalities can help further provide relief.

The human body was designed to move for the majority of the day but, in today’s society, people live very different lives where exercise is scarce and consuming calories is unavoidable. The majority of the population live almost completely sedentary lives with the constant use of computers, phones, cars, etc. Technology around us has made great advances, making human life easier but, due to this, people now have to work just as hard to reach the amount of physical activity necessary to live healthier lives.

Ideally, everyone would be more active throughout their days. But, when the job requires people to sit behind a desk for extended periods of time, we have to increase our efforts to participate in healthy fitness habits before or throughout our busy work days to raise our levels of activity.

The first opportunity to build a healthy physical activity habit before work depends on how each individual gets to work. If you ride the bus to work, for example, consider getting off a stop or two before your usual stop and walk the rest of the way to work. For those individuals who live near their workplace, biking or walking to work could be an option. Even people who drive to work can attempt to park their car in one of the farthest spaces from the door in order to benefit from a few more steps before work.

Then, while working from a desk, finding opportunities to stand can make a big difference. Some employers are starting to install desks that can be adjusted to a standing position. You can also try standing for your neck conference call. Another healthy fitness habit while at work is to use a bathroom on another floor or at the other end of the building where a little more activity than usual can be added into the person’s daily routine. Also, taking the time to walk over to a co-worker’s desk instead of using the phone or an e-mail gives the individual more steps throughout the day. While on a break, you can use the time to do some stretches or take a walk. Organizing a lunch walking group can help keep employers and employees motivated and active.

Also, when traveling from work, calling a hotel or checking online to see the type of exercise facility they have, if any, before booking a reservation can ensure you get a good amount of physical fitness while on those business trips. In addition, take a resistance band in your suitcase, that way, you can wake up and do a couple of toning exercises to stay alert and warm up your muscles. These tips can greatly help improve an individual’s daily physical activities and although many people might just be too busy to use them all, every little bit of exercise added to your daily routine can help.

Pain in the Quadratus Lumborum Muscle

A majority of the population have at some point experienced low back pain in their lifetimes. Although low back pain is recognized to result from numerous conditions or injuries on the lumbar spine, muscle strains such as a quadratus lumborum muscle strain, are believed to be a leading cause for the recognizable symptoms of pain and discomfort.
The quadratus lumborum muscle is a sizable muscle in the shape of a triangle, located deep on each respective side of the lower back. The role of the wide muscular tissue is to grant mobility to the lumbar spine in sequence for the torso to move laterally from side to side as well as extend and stabilize the lower spine to improve posture. When this muscle is strained or pulled, the symptoms can restrict movement on the lower back and since the muscular tissue is so extensive, recovery from this type of injury usually requires more time and patience to fully heal.

Achilles Tendon Injury

Achilles tendonitis is a medical term used to describe a condition resulting in irritation of the large tendon, the Achilles tendon. Found in the back of the ankle, this condition is recognized as a common cause for injury among athletes. Excessive use of the Achilles tendon results in inflammation together with swelling and pain.
The development of Achilles tendonitis can be associated with two important factors, most frequently among athletes, which are, lack of flexibility and over-pronation. With age, the tendons will begin to lose flexibility, just the same as other tissues in the body. This change causes the tendons to become more rigid and more vulnerable to injury. For some people, the ankle may roll too far downward and inward with each step they take. This is called over-pronation, which places more stress on the tendons and ligaments of the foot, contributing to injury if not corrected.
Achilles tendonitis may also develop from other factors. An increase in an athlete’s …

5 Common Causes for Shoulder Pain

The shoulders are the most mobile joints in the human body. Because the ball of the humerus is designed to be larger than the shoulder socket that holds it, the shoulders need to be supported by muscles, tendons, and ligaments to secure them in a stable or natural position. Since the shoulder can be unstable, it is often a site for many common complications. Below are 5 common causes of shoulder pain and their associated symptoms.
Rotator Cuff Tear
Rotator cuff tears within the shoulder are a very common type of shoulder injury. The rotator cuff consists of a set of four muscles: the supraspinatus, the infraspinatus, the subscapularis, and the teres minor. All of these muscles are attached to the bones of the shoulders by tendons, which purspose is to support, stabilize, and grant the arm movement to move up, down and rotate. The rotator cuff ensures that the arm remains in the shoulder socket. Damage or injury from an accident or gradual wear and tear can result in inflammation to t…
