Chiropractic and Digestion

October 31, 2016, 10:21 pm

Over $80 billion are spent each year on drugs to relieve heartburn, bloating, gas, acid reflux, irritable bowel, diarrhea, constipation, and other digestive disorders. These symptoms of abnormalNutrition and Chiropractic, Vegetables from Garden image digestion are becoming ever more prevalent in our society. Science and research have shown that chiropractic care offers a powerful solution to this modern-day epidemic.

The nervous system of your body controls digestive function from nerves that come out of the brain stem, down through your vertebrae (back bones), and from there out to your digestive organs. A misalignment in your spine can lead to compromised nerves which can alter digestive function.

Wellness oriented chiropractors search and find the location of such spinal misalignments termed `subluxations.` A specific chiropractic adjustment realigns the altered region(s) of your spine and restores nerve supply to the deficient organs. This chiropractic approach honors the body’s innate ability to heal by enhancing organ function & quality of life.

Several studies have demonstrated the power of chiropractic adjustments restoring optimal function in individuals with digestive problems. In one published case study, a young woman had been afflicted with irritable bowel symptoms once or twice a week for 5 years. After one chiropractic adjustment she noticed an easing of symptoms and within a short time all her digestive problems disappeared. When the report was published 2 years later she was still symptom free.

Another case study showed that chiropractic care can be effective for infants with digestive disturbances. Researchers chose three infants who were experiencing infrequent bowel movements with resulting distress.  Parents of these infants had reported following medication regimens and diet changes without any results. The infants began chiropractic care and all three experienced almost immediate improvement. By the end of the study all three had bowel movements at least once every day.

Subluxations within specific areas of the spine can prevent the bowel and other digestive organs from functioning properly. Regular chiropractic care can help patients prevent and treat a wide range of digestive issues.  For more information on how chiropractic can help you, please visit our home page at SuperDocDC.com.

Chiropractic and Low Back Pain

June 4, 2016, 2:39 pm

Low Back Pain image, man holding low backLow Back Pain leads to millions of dollars of lost work and untold suffering daily.  And studies show that 80% of people will experience back pain at some point in their lives. Many things can be responsible for Low Pack Pain such as improper lifting, over-exertion, stress, and trauma.  Research studies have shown that chiropractic care is safer and often more effective than back surgery.  The simplicity and success of chiropractic adjustments has helped many patients avoid risky surgery….no drugs, nothing invasive, just pain relief.

Until recently, researchers believed that back pain will “heal” on its own.  However, a recent study showed that when back pain is not treated, it may go away temporarily, but will most likely return.  Only 9% of the people who had low back pain for more than 30 days were pain free 5 years later.

If your back pain is not resolving quickly, it is time for a visit to your chiropractor.  Your pain will often result from mechanical problems that your chiropractor can address.  Chiropractic adjustments reduce pain, decrease the need for medication, rapidly advances physical therapy, and requires very few passive forms of additional treatment, such as bed rest.  Studies show that adjustments by a chiropractor are the most effective way to treat back pain!

One of our South Jordan patients writes, “I am a nurse and after a 12-hour shift at the hospital I would literally leave, get in my car, and cry because of pain in my lower back.  After a couple of months of seeing Dr. Burrup that was no longer the case.  I can now work a 12-hour shift and have minimal to NO pain by the end of the day.  This has all happened with four months of treatments…I will keep seeing Dr. Burrup for years to come.  This is the best I have felt in years!” –LH

To See How Dr. Burrup Lost 46 lbs and Trained Only 3 Days a Week for his Marathon, READ ON…

January 25, 2016, 5:42 pm

Dr. Burrup ran his first marathon in St. George on October 4th, 2014.  He lost 46 pounds in preparation for the marathon and used a simple training program that required very little time compared to most marathon training programs.

Dr. Burrup had been interested in running for a while, but had not considered a marathon until he came across a training program that did NOT take up hours and hours of his time every week.  The basic program is this: one long run each week, increasing your miles as you go, and two short 30-minute runs each week to keep up your conditioning. That’s all there is to it!  Here is an article that explains this more in detail:

Marathoning Made Simple http://www.trinewbies.com/tno_running/tno_runarticle_09.asp

Dr. Burrup also lost 46 lbs in preparation to run the marathon by using the Fast Metabolism Diet by Haylie Pomroy.  Dr. Burrup has successfully used other diets in the past, but found that this one has been the easiest to stay on!  The theory behind this diet is that by changing the types of foods you eat throughout the week, you keep your metabolism guessing, which helps it to work faster.  This is similar to “muscle confusion” when weight lifting, to keep your muscles building instead of plateauing.  For more information on this diet please visit hayliepomroy.com.

Disc Problems…And What To Do About Them

April 27, 2015, 12:41 pm

The disc is a small cartilage pad that is situated between spinal bones.  Each one serves as a connector, spacer, and shock absorber for the spine.  When healthy, discs allow normal turning and bending.

If a spinal joint loses its normal motion, the health of the disc deteriorates.  Trauma or injury to the spine can cause discs to bulge, herniate, or worse, rupture.

The chiropractic approach to disc problems is to help restore better motion and position to the spinal joint.  Besides reducing disc bulging, better spinal function helps reduce inflammation and begin the slow process of healing the surrounding soft tissues.Spine with pelvis image

One of our Salt Lake City patients writes, “When I came into Dr. Burrup’s office for the first time I could barely walk.  My lower back has given me grief for the past four years due to a herniated disc.  I came to Dr. Burrup frustrated, desperate, and fed up with the pain and inconvenience of a back injury.  By the end of that first appointment, even though I didn’t feel any different physically, I finally felt like there may be some hope for a normal, pain free life.  I am after all only 37 years old and have a lot more live to live.  Within the first two weeks of treatment I felt a dramatic difference in my back.  I felt stronger, more agile, and had more confidence in my body’s ability to move and LIVE than I had felt in four years!  Since then, now six months later, I continue to feel an amazing difference in my quality of life and ability to live and move without the fear of losing mobility at any moment.  It has truly changed my life!” (H.J., Salt Lake City)

Low Back Pain…Affecting Your Every Day Life?

Deaf Man Receives Hearing After Chiropractic Adjustment!

March 10, 2015, 3:46 pm

Fullspine - ChiropracticIn 1895 Harvey Lillard, who had been deaf for 17 years, received the first chiropractic adjustment from Dr. D.D. Palmer. Three days later his hearing returned. How was this possible? The brain communicates with and coordinates the function of every system, organ, tissue, and cell in the body. When structural problems cause communication breakdowns between the brain and the rest of the body, proper function becomes impaired, and dis-ease results. The most common place for this to occur is in the spinal column. This is what Dr. Palmer corrected in Harvey. Chiropractors are masters trained at removing these structural imbalances releasing the full healing potential of the body through the nervous system.
