Chiropractic and Sciatica: 5 Best Ways to Reduce Your Risk

October 19, 2016, 9:38 pm

Sciatica is constant, persistent pain along the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back, through the buttock, and into the lower leg.  The Sciatic Nerve is the longest and widest nerve in your body.  Sciatic pain usually develops from general use, and wear and tear  of your lower spine, not as a result of injury.

  1. Maintain proper posture:  People who have good posture help their body to have proper nerve and blood flow, which may be impaired by prolonged poor posture.  Poor posture can cause aching, pain, and impaired nerve function over time.
  2. Exercise regularly:  The risk for sciatica is much lower when the muscles and tissues of your body are strong and healthy.
  3. Maintain a healthy diet and weight:  I know, the last thing you want to hear…but it is so true!  The better you eat, the better the body works, and a healthy weight puts less pressure on nerves and blood flow, directly affecting the sciatic nerve.
  4. Use good body mechanics when lifting:  Injury is less common as a reason for developing sciatica.  However, when injury is involved, poor lifting techniques are a common reason for injury that leads to sciatica.
  5. Get regular chiropractic care:  Chiropractic adjustments offer a drug-free, non-invasive treatment option as well as preventive care for sciatica.  The goal of chiropractic treatment is to restore/maintain spinal movement, which improves function while decreasing pain and inflammation.  Depending on the cause of the sciatica, your chiropractor may use ice/heat therapy, ultrasound, and rehab exercises in addition to chiropractic adjustments in your treatment.

While it is not always possible to prevent sciatica, these suggestions improve spinal health and the overall health of the body, and can greatly lower your risk for developing sciatica.

Homeopathy: the Natural Cure

February 9, 2016, 7:10 pm

Homeopathic remedies treat a wide variety of conditions such as allergies, hormone imbalances, digestive problems, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety, colds and flus, etc.  The range of problems in which homeopathic remedies can be used is extensive and includes first aid, acute illnesses, and all manner of chronic conditions.Homeopathy

Homeopathy activates the body’s self-healing processes by using very small doses of natural substances from all three realms of nature – plant, mineral, and animal. These activate the body’s systems to initiate the healing response and cure disease naturally, gently and promptly.

The speed of results from a Homeopathic Remedy can vary widely, depending on whether the illness is acute or chronic and what the underlying cause of the condition is.  In acute illnesses, the appropriate remedy can act within minutes. It is commonplace to see a child who is screaming out in pain with an earache, drop off to sleep in one or two minutes after a dose of the appropriate remedy. Though astounding improvements often take place, instant improvements do not occur in chronic or long-term conditions. Improvements for chronic conditions usually take a few weeks, and may take as long as 1 to 2 months for noticeable improvement in some cases.
