Why More Professional Athletic Teams Are Using Chiropractors

There has been an increasing number of professional athletes and athletic teams in recent years that have chosen to use chiropractors to treat their injuries, help manage their pain, and help keep them at the top of their game in terms of performance and stamina. Top athletes like Jordan Spieth, Phil Mickelson, Vernon Davis, and Aaron Rodgers recognize that value in good chiropractic care and have incorporated it into their overall health and wellness programs. One of the biggest draws is chiropractic’s whole-body approach to health care. A chiropractor will not just treat the symptoms of a problem (such as pain), he or she will work to uncover the cause of the problem and recommend lifestyle changes that will help the athlete not only eliminate their pain, but resolve the issue causing the pain, and take steps to help prevent the problem from recurring.

How Chiropractic Can Help Prevent Migraine Headaches

Migraines affect an estimated 38 million people, including children, in the United States alone. Worldwide, that total jumps to 1 billion. In fact, migraine ranks number three among prevalent illnesses in the world and number six among disabling illnesses. More than 90% of people who suffer from migraines are not able to function normally or work during an attack. A migraine attack is often debilitating and extremely painful. It is also very difficult to stop once it starts. The best treatment for migraines is preventing them from ever occurring. There are several methods that work for some people, but chiropractic is a popular preventative measure that many people have found to help them be migraine free. Migraine Symptoms A severe headache is the first thing people think of regarding migraines, but there are other symptoms which include: Pain located on one or both sides of the head Photophobia (sensitivity to light) Blurred vision or other visual disturbances Pain tha

How The Feet, Knees & Hips Affect The Low Back

If you have low back pain or have had it, you are not alone. Experts estimate that around 80% of people will experience some type of back problem at some point in their lives. The Global Burden of Disease 2010 lists low back pain as the number one cause of disability worldwide. The good news is the majority of back pain is mechanical in origin or is not organic. This means that infection, cancer, fracture, inflammatory arthritis, and other severe conditions are not the cause. In fact, you may benefit by looking to your feet, knees, and hips as the culprits. The spine is the foundation for the body, supporting the spinal cord and the limbs. When there is a problem with any of the limbs, it can affect the spine and vice versa. The intricate network of tendons, ligaments, and nerves work together within the incredible machine that is the human body. How the Feet Affect the Low Back When there are problems with the feet, it can cause problems through the legs and all the way t

Cow's Milk Allergy in Multiple Sclerosis Patients

Multiple sclerosis, or MS, is a chronic disease of the central nervous system, or CNS. While the etiology of the disease remains unknown, research studies have found that environmental factors, such as nutrition, may have an impact on the occurrence and development of MS. Other research studies specifically analyzed the association between certain dietary factors in multiple sclerosis, such as fat, dairy and meat consumption. Multiple sclerosis, or MS, epidemiology suggests that dairy is primarily involved in the clinical expression of the disease. The purpose of the following article is to show the effects of cow's milk allergy in multiple sclerosis patients. Abstract Background: Exposure to some environmental agent such as different nutrition and contact with allergens may have a role in developing multiple sclerosis (MS). The present study was aimed to evaluate the cow's milk allergy (CMA) in MS patients compared to healthy controls. Materials and Methods: Betwee

Nutrition Facts In Multiple Sclerosis

Many healthcare professionals highly recommend that patients with multiple sclerosis, or MS, avoid dairy. Several research studies have demonstrated a high correlation between MS and dairy, especially cow’s milk. By way of instance, some of the proteins in cow’s milk are targeted by the immune cells of patients with multiple sclerosis. These include butyrophilin and bovine serum albumin, or BSA. Moreover, injecting those same cow’s milk proteins into test animals caused lesions to appear in their central nervous systems. Some proteins in cow’s milk imitate part of the myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein, or MOG, the section of myelin believed to initiate the autoimmune reaction associated with multiple sclerosis. Furthermore, this can trick the immune system into initiating an attack on the MOG, subsequently causing demyelination. Another research study involving more than 135,000 men and women in the United States determined a connection between cow’s milk and the degenerative
