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.

Why Cut What Can Be Untied?

The Rubber Band Game... Ever played?

When the physical obstruction leading to secondary issues (loss of circulation, finger ache, skin color changes) is removed, the finger can eventually return to more normal feeling AND function (assuming the damage isn't irreparable).

Here's how the 'game' works: Wrap a rubber band around one of your fingers. Within a period of time you'll observe how the skin begins to change color and the finger aches as the the blood and nerves are being obstructed.

Now, imagine what would happen if you left the rubber band on your finger for the next hour, day, week, or even longer? The symptoms your finger is experiencing will keep getting worse and eventually will suffer irreparable damage!

So, let's think about the options to address this issue. Which would you choose?

  1. Exercise the finger. This might make your finger feel better; but it doesn't correct the cause of this particular problem.

  2. Massage the finger. This can offer temporary relief; however, the rubber band is still there causing the obstruction.

  3. Apply some pain relieving cream or medicine on the finger. This can also offer temporary relief, but does not remove the actual cause.

  4. Cut the finger off. This can certainly remove the obstruction (and more). Now there's also permanent damage in the body.

  5. Remove the rubber band. When the physical obstruction leading to secondary issues (loss of circulation, finger ache, skin color changes) is removed, the finger can eventually return to more normal feeling AND function (assuming the damage isn't irreparable).

Why are we talking about fingers & rubber bands?

You see, a Neuro-Structural shift in the spine is very similar. It places an obstruction on the nervous system, blood vessels, and other connective tissues just like the rubber band on your finger. This obstruction can lead to secondary issues like back and neck pain, migraines, numbness & tingling, muscle tension, and even lowered immunity.

When people first visit us at Platinum Chiropractic, many people have previously tried the other common solutions to their problems such as taking medicine, going to physical therapy, or having a massage in order to resolve the secondary issue(s) or symptoms they're dealing with.

Our unique focus as an office is that we look for the underlying structural cause of the problem and apply a results-driven plan of Neuro-Structural Correction to FIX it. The adjusting of the Neuro-Structural shift is how we can remove the obstruction to the nervous system and reduce the frequency of it coming back.

The Opioid Crisis and Chiropractic

The opioid epidemic is a serious problem and we are proud to be a part of the solution. Before you turn to pain medication, find out if Neuro-Structural chiropractic can help you.

I am sure you have all heard about the opioid epidemic that the US is facing, but did you know that chiropractic care can be a part of the solution? In fact, "adults receiving treatment for low back pain are 55% less likely to fill a prescription for an opioid if they are receiving chiropractic care." That is a big number!  Check out this article in Boss Magazine by Dr. Sherry McAllister of which talks more about how chiropractic care offers drug-free solutions.

And when you have a friend or family member looking to pain prescriptions for relief, have them give us a call, we would love to help.

Normal Structure is NOT an Option

We all know that the human body has a normal temperature, a normal blood pressure, and normal eyesight, but most of us are unaware that there is also a normal when it comes to the structural alignment of the spine.

What would happen if there were a shift from the normal alignment of your automobile? How about a shift in your home’s foundation? If your spine shifts from its normal structural alignment, the result may be a variety of secondary conditions (symptoms) such as neck and back pain, headaches, pinched nerves, sciatica, numbness/tingling — just to name a few.

Restoring and protecting your body’s normal structural alignment is a key factor in maintaining optimal health and wellness.
