Massage, Physical Therapy, & Chiropractic

How do these different approaches to physical care help to resolve your health concerns?

If the foundation of a house shifts from its normal structural alignment, the resulting damage can be devastating. 1) Cracks in the walls, 2) creaky floorboards, and 3) windows that don’t open properly are just a few of the symptoms of the underlying cause, a structural shift of the foundation.

Similar to the foundation of a house, structural damage to the spine may be the underlying cause of a myriad of symptoms. Simply bandaging your symptoms is unlikely to correct the true cause of your condition, and may eventually lead to further spinal decay and more aggressive deterioration.

Each of these approaches have their place in your care, but each work in different ways. Let’s use a house as an analogy. Imagine you start noticing difficulty in sliding the house windows up and down, or the doors not shutting correctly, or even noticing a fissure in the wall. Now, you could treat these problems one by one. First, you could start by putting some WD-40 on the window tracks to help them go up and down more smoothly. Then you could shave the door down so that it will shut into the frame better. You can even put paint on the fissure to cover it up. But how long will these patches last for? Usually they come back, over and over again or lead to larger more costly repairs in the future. 

Until one day you get a builder out to check the foundation of the house. The builder notices that your home’s foundation has shifted and is causing many of these secondary problems you are experiencing with the house. By fixing the houses’ underlying structure and doing a little bit of work on the secondary repairs, you find things to be right again, and future expenses are avoided. No more need to keep shaving down your doors over and over again or re-patching and painting the walls!

Similar to the house, the foundation of your body is your spine. Structural damage to the spine may be the underlying cause of a myriad of symptoms you are experiencing. When your spine shifts from its normal position, the shifts may impede your body and nerve signals from functioning correctly. Some of the secondary conditions you might experience are tightness in your neck and shoulders, pain in your hips and/or legs, headaches and migraines, and digestive issues just to name a few. 

Now just as before, you can treat these problems one by one. You can go to a massage therapist who will look at the soft tissues that hang on the frame of your body. They will find tight spots and loosen them up giving you temporary relief. Massages, however, don’t work on your foundation as much as they work on the outer muscles of your body. This is similar to putting WD-40 on a squeaky window that doesn’t go up and down correctly. 

When it comes to your health, there’s no silver bullet. As a healthcare professional, our Doctors of Chiropractic are focused on the best possible outcome. Once your structure is being addressed, the massage and physical therapy may work synergistically with your chiropractic care to achieve optimum results.

Then, let’s say your massage visits don’t quite do the job and your problems keep coming back until someone recommends you visit a physical therapist. The PT will check your areas of complaint and find areas that need to be stretched and/ or strengthened. They might say your muscles aren’t “firing” in certain places which is why you can have dysfunction in your back or leg. They will try to stretch and strengthen certain body parts to improve their function. Often times this will begin to help, but might lose momentum as the stretches and exercises are not addressing the true root cause of your conditions. 

You see, neither the massage therapist or the physical therapist is taking a look at correcting your foundation, nor do they have the tools. Instead they are working on the surface areas and secondary conditions. Doctors of Chiropractic who focus on Neuro Structural Correction examine your foundation with many objective measures to see if your structure is shifted from a normal position. These shifts cause pressure on your nerves and can be causing symptoms or dysfunctions down stream, leading to pain and dysfunction. Only when theses spinal shifts are corrected, are your secondary symptoms able to resolve naturally. Once your structure is being addressed, the massage and physical therapy may work synergistically with your chiropractic care to achieve optimum results.

Shoulder Mobility & Rehab

Look at this good looking group of people! great to see everyone who made it to our workshop on Tuesday night. We hi-lighted some strategies everyone can do at home or at work to keep their shoulders healthy and happy. We went through some basic, but powerful movements starting from the neck out to the hands. 

Take a look the video below for an except from the event. If you're not already following us, for more videos and tips, make sure to like us on our social media channels: 

Vitamin D... What's all the fuss?

Vitamin D is a profoundly important nutrient that provides a vast array of health benefits. The question is, do we really need to supplement? And if we do, what’s the proper dosage? 

It is estimated that up to 85% of people have insufficient levels of vitamin D and are unaware of their deficient state. While conventional media and medicine promote sun avoidance, doing so can actually put your health in grave danger and cause vitamin D deficiency (Mercola.com). 

Vitamin D is a very special vitamin because it has so many uses in the body; it’s actually more like a hormone. Over 3,000 genes that we know of are symbiotically using Vitamin D. 

Dr. Robert Heaney, a professor and one of the most well respected researchers in the field, has studied osteoporosis, vitamin D, and calcium physiology for over 50 years. Trained as a physician and endocrinologist, he has been working at the Creighton University’s Osteoporosis Research Center, which he founded, since the late 1960s, with a focus on bone biology. “Inevitably, when you deal with bones, sooner or later, your path crosses with vitamin D, which is vital and important for a whole host of functions,” says Heaney. According to him, vitamin D is involved in the biochemical cellular machinery of all cells and tissues in your body. When you do not have enough, that “machinery” does not work very well. Consequently, your entire body struggles to operate as programmed into our genomes. 

Optimal vitamin D levels can slash your risk of cancer by as much as 60%. Keeping your levels optimized can help prevent at least 16 different types of cancer, including pancreatic, lung, ovarian, prostate, and skin cancers. Moreover, vitamin D can build your defenses against cancer and other diseases by:

  • Enhancing the self-destruction of mutated cells (which can replicate and cause cancer)

  • Slowing down the production and spread of cancer cells

  • Reducing the risk of other conditions as well, including type 2 diabetes, chronic inflammation, age-related macular degeneration (the leading cause of blindness), and Alzheimer’s disease.

  • Exhibiting its infection-fighting abilities in the treatment of tuberculosis, pneumonia, colds, and flu. 

  • Improving seizure control in epileptics.

The best way to attain Vitamin D is through sun exposure without the use of sun block between 10am and 2pm. The sun provides beneficial UVB wavelengths that are needed to optimize your levels. It emits two types of wavelengths at different periods in a day: UVA rays and UVB rays. Your body requires UVB for vitamin D production. Unless you’re living in a tropical region, you can not get vitamin D from the sun year round. That is why a good vitamin D supplement is essential for health.

Experts agree that adults need about 5,000 IU’s and children need about 3,000 IU’s per day to maintain healthy levels. Take a look at Dr. Karo's recommended Vitamin D supplement in our online store where Platinum Preferred Patients receive 5% off. Both of these supplements are of the highest quality and are coupled with both vitamin K, specifically K2 as MK-7 since they work better synergistically. Vitamins D and K are essential for optimal bone and blood vessel health and for maintaining the immune system in proper balance.

What to Eat & Why

Nutrition Workshop Recap

During our nutrition workshop we talked about how the health of the people of the United States has been drastically decreasing and how our nutrition is hugely to blame. We have an entire industry selling medication for preventable diseases… What if we could reverse this trend?

The fundamental problems with our nutrition is that 

  • we over eat, 

  • we're malnourished, and 

  • we're overburdened with toxicity and unwanted chemicals that take energy to digest and eliminate from our bodies. 

Good nutrition requires a healthy gut system and microbiome in our bodies, which was the focus of the lecture. We talked about the kinds of behaviors and foods that cause a leaky and dysfunctional gut which predisposes us to becoming allergic to our foods and our environment. This in turn has caused a drastic rate of increase of auto immunity in our communities. Our microbiome, the probiotics and prebiotics, are what keep our guts healthy and we should be striving to include these in our diet. 

We also touched on macro and micro nutrients, how they add up to give us what we need for proper metabolism, and how they can be neglected and cause weight gain and malnourishment.

Here in the practice we focus on Neuro-Strucural Correction which looks at restoring the connection between the brain and the body (like the digestive system)

Here in the practice we focus on Neuro-Strucural Correction which looks at restoring the connection between the brain and the body (like the digestive system). We shared a study about irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) being caused by improper nerve signals to the gut. This is why so many of our patients report having better digestion when they are under regular care. 

In the end we reiterated that nutrition needs to focus on healing the gut, eating whole nutritious foods, and how supplementation can help to round out our nutrition so that we make sure we're getting everything we need to live a healthy life free of disease.

The Thyroid

Your Questions Answered

Since January is Thyroid Awareness Month we thought we would talk about your thyroid’s roll in your body, what happens when it isn’t working correctly, and what you can do to support your thyroid’s function, including Neuro-Structural chiropractic care.

Still have questions? Contact our practice in Santa Clara, CA to schedule a Complimentary Consultation.

Patients often ask us about thyroid problems and if chiropractic can help. Since January is Thyroid Awareness Month we thought we would talk about your thyroid’s roll in your body, what happens when it isn’t working correctly, and what you can do to support your thyroid’s function.

As you may already know, your thyroid is an endocrine (hormone) gland located in your neck right under your voice box. This gland influences every cell in your body. It regulates your metabolism, controls fat burning, and influences the growth and development of nearly every process in your body. Pretty important right? Additionally, its nerve supply and connection to your brain comes from the Recurrent Laryngeal Nerve, which is a branch of the Vagus nerve, located at the C4-T1 levels of the cervical (neck) spine.  

Many people in the United States have problems with their thyroid function. It is estimated that 40% of the Adult population has Hypothyroidism. (N Eng J Med, 315:1486; 1986)  And “women are five to eight times more likely than men to have thyroid problems.” (American Thyroid Association)

So, now that we know what our thyroid glands are and what they do, we can talk about what happens whey they are not functioning correctly. An unhealthy thyroid can lead to many health issues such as fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, acne, eczema, gum disease, infertility, cancer, and autoimmune diseases. 

Some of the symptoms of thyroid inadequacy (hypoactive) are:

  • Cold hands / feet or cold sensitivity

  • Constipation

  • Infertility

  • Muscle cramping

  • Increased serum cholesterol 

  • Dry, rough skin/ dry hair and brittle nails

  • Chronic fatigue

  • Difficulty losing weight

  • Swollen hands / feet or puffy face, or abdominal bloating

Hyperactive thyroid has similar symptoms, but also some opposite effects like:

  • Feeling restless, nervous, emotional, irritable, and as if you're always on the go

  • Sleeping poorly

  • Difficulty concentrating

  • Frequent bowel movements

  • Irregular menstrual periods in women

  • Weight loss (or weight gain, in rare cases)

  • Rapid, forceful, or irregular heartbeat 

  • Lack of menstrual periods in women

  • Protruding eyes or exophthalmos

The best way to diagnose a thyroid issue is through blood tests and a full thyroid panel. A lot of times a standard blood test isn’t complete enough to get a full picture and will often times under diagnose a thyroid problem. 

Some of the most common factors contributing to the development of a thyroid problem are:

  • Halogens in the environment like Chlorine, Flouride, Bromine

  • Poor gut health 

  • Lack of nutrients like Zinc, Copper, B vitamins, Vitamin C, Iodine, and Selenium

  • Structural shifts in the cervical and thoracic spine

Treatments for thyroid related problems vary from standard medical hormone replacement to more natural ways with nutrition and lifestyle changes. Regardless of which course of treatment is chosen, changes to your lifestyle are imperative because a thyroid issue is typically a symptom of a larger problem. If you are only treating the symptoms, the underlying root cause will not be addresses and will manifest differently later in life. 

Some of these lifestyle changes and supplementation are:

  • Essential fatty acids (omega 3’s available in the office)

  • Healing your gut (probiotics, soon tone available in the office)

  • Vitamins and mineral like B’s, C, Iodine, Selenium, Zinc (soon to be available in the office)

  • Avoid toxins like Chlorine and Flourine

  • Avoid plastic containers

  • Avoid processed food 

  • Exercise

  • Neuro-Structural Chiropractic Adjustments

  • Get enough rest 

At Platinum Chiropractic our goal is Neuro-Structural Correction of the spine and nervous system. In this way we improve and normalize the function and connection of the nerve supply from the brain to the body, allowing glands such as your thyroid and other bodily systems to work properly. We have many patients who have seen incredible improvements in their thyroid function as a result of specific chiropractic adjustments.

5 Easy Tips to Improve Your Home Air Quality

Improvehomeairquality

As promised in our Houseplant appreciation post, here are 5 Easy Tips to Improve Your Home Air Quality. 

  1. Utilize floor mat at every door: All sorts of chemicals can enter your home via the dirt on shoes. Door mats reduce the amount of dirt, pesticides, and other pollutants from getting into your home.

  2. Avoid artificial/synthetic fragrances: You may associate that lemon or piney fresh scent with a clean home. Unfortunately synthetic fragrances in laundry products and air fresheners emit dozens of different chemicals into the air. Most fragrances are derived from petroleum products, and generally haven’t been tested to see if they have any significant adverse health effects in humans when they are inhaled.

  3. House plants: Many house plants are known for their ability for cleaning the air in your home. Check out our recent post on Facebook and Instagram for suggestions on specific plants.

  4. Increase your Ventilation: Most home heating and cooling systems, including forced air heating systems, do not mechanically bring fresh air into the house. Opening windows and doors, utilizing window or attic fans, or running a window air conditioner with the vent control open increases the outdoor ventilation rate.

  5. Keep your sheets and clothes clean: Dust mites are a leading cause of poor air quality. They often hang out in the fabric of your homes such as bedding, cushions, and curtains. Clean these items regularly in low allergenic washing soap, including your pillows, to get rid of those mites.

Anti-Aging Secret!

Anti aging, your health, and what you can do.

As times goes by, we all notice the effects of aging. What if we could slow down this decline? Science is starting to really look at how we can control or help our genetics to perform better.

One of the ways that DNA is measured is through the telomere length on the end of a DNA strand. Telomeres are the strand of DNA that is attributed to aging and healthy cell function. Throughout your life, they are essentially "used up" to create the cells in your body. Once your telomeres are used up, you no longer produce healthy normal cells, and you begin to decline.

Fortunately there is some good news. One of the features of consistent chiropractic care is its positive affect on DNA. Consistent chiropractic care lengthens these telomere strands, which result in normal production of healthy cell tissue, wow!

Your Electrical System

Structural shifts could be subtle, but they weaken your structure and obstruct your electrical system, which can cause many secondary conditions. Schedule a Complimentary Consultation today.

Chiropractic care is all about the skeletal structures of the body protecting the delicate electrical system (Nervous system) that coordinates all the cellular functions from your brain to the tips of your fingers and toes. This complex system is constantly being affected by our lifestyles. We sit, we lift, we slip, we fall, we turn and twist. All the while our skeletal system is moving, shifting, bending and protecting the vital structures inside.

Our goal at Platinum Chiropractic is to find the kinks and shifts that may have occurred suddenly or developed over time. These structural shifts could be subtle, but they weaken your structure and obstruct your electrical system, which can cause many secondary conditions. There's never a bad time to get checked and corrected, because this is happening constantly throughout our life. It's much easier to keep things normal and in check, rather than wait until you develop problems. If this makes you think of friends or family that you know are suffering from a physical condition that we can help with, share this article.

Plan for Success

It’s December… the last month of 2018. Let’s finish this year strong and set ourselves up for the new year hitting the ground running! 

The best way to make sure you are successful with your New Years resolutions is to start them NOW. Want to start working out? Eating less crap? Reading more? Start with small steps this month, and you’ll find that when everyone else is just beginning to be more healthful, you’ll be one step ahead.  

Those that plan for success tend to be more successful than people who wait for things to happen to them. Get started today!

Below are three tips to keep in mind through the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. 

1) Make sure you get in for your adjustments.This will ensure you’re feeling great and your electrical system is functioning at its best so that you can adapt to all the stress through the holiday month. 

2) Take your recommended supplements: Omega 3’s and Vitamin D. These will help balance your hormones, giving you essential nutrients, and help reduce your inflammation. 

3) Make sure you get as much sleep as possible between all the holiday celebrations. This will allow you to recover your brain and body, improve adaptability, and keep you from developing a cold or illness.

How Far will You Go?

Have questions about Neuro-Structural Chiropractic Care? We are happy to answer them for you. 

It surprises many people that we have patients who use chiropractic regularly. Here's five different ways that we see people along their continuum of care.

  • Relief – Most people begin here. Their ache, pain or other symptom is often what prompts them to begin chiropractic care.
  • Correction – With the most obvious symptoms reduced, many opt to continue their care to strengthen their spine.
  • Protection – Regular chiropractic care can help you maintain your progress, protect your investment, and avoid a relapse.
  • Prevention – Periodic chiropractic checkups can help catch new problems before they become serious.
  • Lifestyle – We experience life through our nervous system. Optimizing our spine and nervous system is the key to realizing our fullest potential.

Our job is to offer the best Neuro-Structural Chiropractic Care possible. Where are you on the continuum of care?

Headaches & Migraines...

can be a pain in the neck, literally!

At Platinum Chiropractic we care for a lot patients that come in with chronic headaches and migraines. Most people experiencing headaches or migraines manage the effects through pharmacology in the form of medication. Although medication can cover up some of the pain they also alter mood, digestion, and have other side effects. People come see us with the hopes that structural chiropractic correction might help ease their pain, intensity, or frequency of headaches, and they are right! Because of the work we do with Neuro-Structural correction, we can test for areas of the spine which have a high correlation in causing headaches. The best part is when we start adjusting people, they can have immediate reductions in headaches and migraines. People frequently tell us at their progress examinations that they stopped taking migraine medications because they’ve been migraine free for months! And the only thing they have changed in their life is having regular adjustments at our practice. 

Let us know if your headaches and migraines have decreased in frequency and intensity. Actually, share this article with your family and friends and let others know where they can get help too, because there are a lot of people out there suffering. You always have options when it comes to health care, and at Platinum Chiropractic we are a non-drug, non-surgical solution to many health conditions.
