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.

Nurses provide love, care, empathy and dependability for many of their patients. While they are constantly on their feet for extended periods of time, working quickly to serve as many individuals in need as possible throughout their day in an environment where in a moment notice, a circumstance could leave no room for error, the job of a nurse can be very demanding and they have to be ready when others need them, regardless of how they feel.

Because many healthcare jobs can be very demanding, always working at peak performance is essential. From a rush into the emergency room to a simple clinical visit, most patients are assisted by healthcare workers even before seeing the doctor, including being the first ones to be exposed to infections and viruses. Getting sick is not an option and nurses need a healthy and strong immune system to stay well and do their job.

Benefits of Chiropractic on the Spine


The human body is designed to remain healthy. When the immune system is functioning to its fullest capacity, it’s intended to fight off, hunt down and destroy foreign organisms and viruses. But, if the immune system is functioning at less than its best, the individual’s health is at risk and as a health professional, so are those individuals that depend on their care. By incorporating chiropractic into your lifestyle, one can learn a healthy new habit for improving and achieving the maximum potential of overall wellness.

Everyday healthcare job activities, such as sitting, standing, bending, reaching, and lifting, can add pressure and cause stress to the spine and extremities. This added stress can lead to joint restrictions, also referred to as joint dysfunctions or subluxations, without the individual ever knowing of their presence. When the joints of the spine become stiff, limiting a person’s mobility, the rest of the body can in turn be affected. Normal nerve transmissions can become interrupted and the immune system suffers, altering your health, lifestyle, and ultimately affecting your job. Symptoms including pain and discomfort can usually suggest an underlying injury or condition and masking the symptoms will only provide temporary relief that could lead to further complications if left untreated.

When a single or multiple joints become restricted on the spine, it can decrease an individuals natural range of motion as well as cause an interruption of the nerve communications between the brain and the body if there is a compression of the nerves in the spine. This interruption can affect the cells, tissues, and organs of the body which can generally inhibit the structure’s ability to fight off illness. Doctors of chiropractic, also referred to as DCs or chiropractors, apply a gentle and focused series of manual manipulations and spinal adjustments to improve the mobility of the restricted joints on the spine and extremities, enhancing nerve function.

As a nurse, its important to maintain the health and strength it takes to perform essential roles throughout a busy workday, especially to help others in need. Chiropractic adjustments are highly controlled procedures that carefully use gentle pressure and force to gradually improve the condition of many individuals experiencing pain and discomfort, including nurses and other healthcare workers. Regular chiropractic adjustments have been shown to produce reparative and preventative benefits even helping to reduce muscle tension that frequently produce stress-related conditions. Chiropractic care is widely recognized as one of the safest, drug-free and non-invasive forms of healthcare available. More and more nurses are currently benefiting from routine chiropractic treatment and they are learning to find relief from their pain while maintaining a pathway to wellness as well as a healthier, more active lifestyle with chiropractic.

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…
