How can  Chiropractor  Help you if you live in Naperville ?

Before I begin, let me give you a little insight to where my perspective on the healing comes from. By training, I’m a scientist. I am really good at looking at issues critically and deciphering facts and problems based on factual evidence and sound theories. At the same time, I always had an interest in alternative medicine and while I lived in Seattle for 5 years, I had the chance to experience directly and learn various healing modalities such as naturopathic physician care, acupuncture, homeopathy, Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques (NAET).

Herniated Disk

Some of my knowledge comes from being the inquisitive patient, some comes from discussions with students of Bastyr College of Naturopathic medicine who I befriended while in Seattle.  While in Naperville I also took several classes on Reiki, and became a Reiki Master/Teacher and hence I have the insiders perspective on how energy healing works and what it can and can’t do.I am a strong advocate of alternative therapies in conjunction with or sometimes instead of traditional medicine. However, recently, I have been really bothered by practices of chiropractor (some not all) and I feel that there are many out there that take advantage of the general lack of understanding of how the human body works in patients to keep their businesses going.

 Sciatica Relief

Bloating, abdominal cramping, gas, diarrhoea or constipation? You may be suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).If this debilitating condition is making it hard for you to work, attend social functions, or travel, you may finally find relief by undergoing Chiropractic care. Although you may not know what is causing your IBS, seeing a Chiropractor may just be the solution you have been waiting for.IBS may affect up to 20% of the population at some point in their life. For some the symptoms may be mild, and well for others, life can become quite uncomfortable and stressful. Whether it affects you at work, home or socially, seeing a Chiropractor may allow you to live a more comfortable life, free from pain.Before we begin to understand how a Chiropractor may be able to help with IBS, let's first look at what IBS is, and some theories of why it may develop. Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a functional disorder of the large intestines, affecting the nerves and muscles of the bowel. The nerves can sometimes become oversensitive and the muscles may not contract as well as they're supposed to. This can cause abdominal pain and irregular bowel movements. This altered bowel function may affect the way your intestines respond to stimuli (such as certain foods) as well as stress that would not normally bother other people. Researchers have not yet discovered any specific cause for IBS, but they have been able to find similarities in some of the sufferers: 50% of people noticed symptoms of IBS after a major life event - such as the loss of a loved one, change of house or job, etc. This suggests that there may be a possible psychological trigger for IBS. 20% of people noticed symptoms after inflammation or infection of the bowels - suggesting infection as the cause.While IBS does not have a definitive cause, it does have certain triggers. Some of these include: • Certain medication • Alcohol and caffeine • Dairy • Wheat, rye, barley and chocolate • Stress • Eating large meals • MSG • Artificial sweeteners. How can a Chiropractor help? Chiropractors believe that there is a strong relationship between the intestines and the nervous system (brain, spinal cord, and spinal nerves). In order for your bowels to work as best as they can, your nervous system must be able to send information to your intestines without any interference. Since the spine houses the spinal cord (a component of the nervous system), misalignments in the vertebrae (bones) of the spine, may lead to interference of this communication network, and hence lead to irritable bowel. Chiropractors refer to this interference as a subluxation. By correcting these subluxations, the nerves are better able to carry the messages to the bowel to allow for their optimal functioning. This is how a Chiropractor may be able to help people suffering with irritable bowel syndrome. There have not been any studies that prove Chiropractic to be effective with IBS, but it is becoming an increasingly popular alternative treatment for this ailment. Many Chiropractors report that spinal adjustments have helped their patients better manage their irritable bowel.Chiropractic care has also been known to help reduce stress - one of the culprits of IBS symptoms. And a good Chiropractor may also be able to propose a suitable food plan, to minimise the symptoms of this stressful condition. While medication masks the pain and symptoms, as you can see, Chiropractors treat the underlying cause of IBS. Are you sick and tired of putting up with an irritable bowel? Why not consider Chiropractic as a safe, gentle and effective means for managing the pain and discomfort associated with this ailment.

When to Know You Need to See the Chiropractor?

Chiropractic spinal traction therapy is a method of stretching and mobilizing the spine using hands-on or mechanic force. Alleviation in pain is sought with therapeutic spinal traction by loosening tight and/or constricted muscles around the spine, and to help decompress intervertebral discs in order to relieve pressure on the spinal nerve roots, which is a major cause of back and spine related pain. As with other chiropractic treatments, spinal traction may or may not help alleviate your pain, often times with chiropractic treatment what works on one patient may not be right for others. Your chiropractor will evaluate your condition and determine if traction, and in what form, is right for you. There are several types of spinal traction, lumbar or cervical, and whether it is done manually or with a traction device: · Manual cervical traction is performed with the patient lying on the table in the supine position while the chiropractor holds the patients head and gently pulls or turns the head.· Mechanical cervical traction is a device that consists of a head harness and pulley system that utilizes weights to apply the force. The patient may use this device while sitting, lying flat, or in a reclined position. This method of traction is often done at home by the patient themselves after having been properly instructed by the chiropractor in the correct technique. Manual lumbar traction is performed by the chiropractor by having the patient lay on the treatment table and then gently pulls on the ankles or by putting the patient's legs on the chiropractor's shoulders whereupon they grasp the patient's thighs and pull, or a waist harness may be utilized to apply the force.·Mechanical traction may be performed by use of a split table style traction device that consists of a computer controlled two level table that the patient lays on and grasps two handles while the lower level of the table applies the force by means of attachment of a waist harness. However, when the spine is in a state of deterioration, such as from osteoporosis, spinal traction is not a treatment option. Other conditions that would exclude a patient from utilizing traction include pregnancy, cardiovascular disease, hernia, and in some cases TMJ. Some mechanical spinal traction devices are considered experimental at this point and so your insurance may or may not pay for this treatment. Spinal traction therapy is often used in conjunction with other forms of chiropractic treatment and physical therapy for maximum benefit.

Chiropractic Pillow For those with tinnitus one thing is universally true, they would do just about anything to make the high pitched whining in their ears go away. Most doctors will tell you there is no cure for tinnitus; this is based on the fact that their treatments for this condition end in limited success, and for many people do not help at all. This does not mean that there is no cure for tinnitus, as much as that your average doctor may not hold the answer to your particular tinnitus problem. Tinnitus and chiropractic treatments are just one example of an alternative treatment that may hold promise for at least some tinnitus sufferers. Tinnitus and Chiropractic The truth is that there are so many different causes for tinnitus that not all tinnitus will be solved with the same treatments. What works for one person will not necessarily work for another, much depends on what is causing your tinnitus and sadly there is little research and therapies that can help you to determine this beyond seeing if your tinnitus is caused by hearing loss. For most people the best approach is one of persistence and trying various therapies until one or more of them work. One of the biggest mistakes most people make is they are so desperate to find a cure for the ringing in their ears that they hop around from one therapy to another much too quickly making the mistake of thinking that if they do not work in the first week or two they are not going to help at all. This is where knowledge and patience can really help, many treatments, chiropractic among them take time to work. The theory behind chiropractic is to reverse the subluxations in your spine that can reduce blood flow and impair nerves, since research has found that both of these conditions are thought to contribute to tinnitus, chiropractic has been shown for offer great improvement for many of those suffering from ringing in the ears. What About Those with Hearing Loss? If you have been told that hearing loss is the cause of your tinnitus and that there is nothing that you can do about it, do not give up searching for solutions. There is some research being done now, which indicates that tinnitus may not be so much a symptom of hearing loss for some, as it may make them more sensitive to, and more aware of the tinnitus as they strain to hear and become more aware of the sounds emanating from their ears. Chiropractors have found that the same treatments that help patients without hearing loss often help those with hearing loss. Often times there are many underlying causes for the ringing in your ears and addressing each one of these causes can help you have the best results for dealing with your condition. Does Chiropractic work for Everyone? Chiropractic for tinnitus is no miracle cure; it merely resolves one of the possible pathways by which many people's tinnitus may occur. It will certainly improve the blood flow and the communication of the nerves to the brain but if there are other underlying causes for the ringing in your ears chances are it will not make it go away completely. In other words chiropractics cannot hurt but may not always help as much as you expect it to. That is not to say you should give up on it, but perhaps you need to look further, try other remedies in addition to this one, as part of a complete solution to the ringing in your ears.

Tinnitus and Chiropractic - Can Chiropractics Help the Ringing in Your Ears?

A good chiropractor should be able to determine what the cause of the muscle imbalance and/or spine misalignment is, whether it is purely structural or whether there is an underlying problem such as a nutrient deficiency, a food sensitivity, a toxic overload, or a hormonal imbalance. This takes not only a good chiropractor but an inquisitive mind set as well as good doctoring skills. These are not taught in all chiropractic schools, and the good chiropractors have usually had lots of other training, for example in applied kinesiology. Hence in my view, chiropractic adjustments are useful to address some musculoskeletal issues. For sure, for acute injuries to the system. When it comes to chronic pain though, the key to getting rid of the issue is addressing the cause. A practitioner who understands how the body works will use a combination of spinal manipulation with physical therapy to address tight and weak muscles, and offer a plan on removing the cause of the ailment (postural habits, etc). This would be similar to the work of a physical therapist skilled in spinal manipulation. Often however even that is not enough. A chiropractor with a firm belief that removing spine misalignments is all that is needed to treat a person will likely keep a person with a vitamin deficiency or a food allergy in treatment for months (and be unsuccessful). I think that is plain ignorant. To treat a person, all aspects of the body have to be considered and for that a holistic practitioner acknowledging the whole body approach to healing is needed. A good chiropractor will recognize the limitation of his or her work and will refer a patient to someone else if spinal manipulation is not producing lasting results. Long term Chiropractic care many chiropractors think that regular spinal manipulations are necessary to stay healthy. After all, in their minds, all disease originates in the spine, and hence small misalignments should be frequently removed for optimal health. It is not clear to me whether these chiropractors actually believe this or whether they simply understand that they will have clients for life, as long as the client believes that he or she should see the chiropractor once a month for optimal health. Of course, services are not limited to adults. Many chiropractors now offer a family package and start adjusting children from infancy; For maintenance: once a month for the rest of their lives.Maintenance may be a good idea a couple times a year or after accidents to prevent the problem of "as the twig is bent, so grows the tree". However, there is more to good maintenance healthcare than adjusting. The biochemical and emotional systems also need maintenance, and typically people with more balanced chemical and emotional systems will need less adjustments to stay feeling good. A good alternative to using a chiropractor for health maintenance is using a practitioner who can address the full spectrum of healthcare and preventive maintenance, such as a Naturopathic Doctor also trained in physical medicine.In summary:The good: chiropractic manipulation can be extremely helpful in reducing or removing pain, often chronic.The bad: Typical chiropractors address only the structural component of the problem. Some will often guidance on how to stretch and strengthen affected muscle groups to help the spine in alignment. Most do not tackle the chemical/hormonal aspect of the problem which are often the hidden cause of spinal misalignments. There is also an emotional aspect of spinal alignments which is rarely addressed.The ugly: Chiropractors often set up their practice with the intention of keeping the clients coming and coming and coming. It's not uncommon to see packages of 60 to 80 visits sold upfront: not only for you - but for your entire family, whether they are ill or not!Optimal Solution: Finding a practitioner who understands the relationship between the musculoskeletal, biochemical, and emotional systems in your body, and can get to the cause of your problem. This can be a holistic chiropractor, naturopathic doctor trained in spinal manipulation, or perhaps a chiropractor who's also an acupuncturist. Neck Pain Treatment Cervical Pain
