If You Get Whipped

If You Get Whipped
Have you ever been in a car accident? According to the National Safety Council, odds are you will have a total of three to four accidents in your driving lifetime whether its your fault or another driver's.  There are about 10 million auto accidents each year, from parking lot scrapes to multi-car pileups. Some symptoms can take weeks or even months before they manifest and start to become noticeable. So Regardless of the type of accident and amount of pain experienced initially, all impacts warrant a spinal assessment for the below following reasons.    Any body part that is jarred or thrown forward unexpectedly beyond normal limits can sustain stretched ligaments and even tears. Those ligaments  supporting the head and neck are especially vulnerable to this because even though your body is held relatively still by a seatbelt, your head and neck are vulnerable by moving very rapidly through an...

Technically Healthy

med-tech
As the world is increasingly phasing into a technology based system, how is this affecting healthcare? We are in a time of convenience and a fast pace world wanting answers quickly, looking for a quick fix. People not only want to feel better quickly, but have no time to take off work or wait to see their provider for questions from lab results to basic health needs. The surge of over-thecounter medication and the marketing of quick relief has taken healthcare to a very short sighted view that mask symptoms that would otherwise be detected. A 2013 study in the Journal of Patient Safety projected that medical errors now account for 210,000 to 440,000 in U.S. deaths annually. Making medical errors is the third leading cause of death behind heart disease and cancer. Americans account for 70% of the world’s prescribed medication, yet we were ranked last among the 11...

Specialized Care For Whiplash Injuries In Seattle

Specialized Care For Whiplash Injuries In Seattle
Have you been involved in a motor vehicle accident recently and are experiencing pain? One of the most common injuries sustained as a result of a car accident is that of whiplash. The sudden jarring movement of whiplash can cause severe pain in the spine as well as neck and shoulder pain, blurred vision, headaches, arm pain, low back pain, neck stiffness, dizziness, and reduced range of motion in the neck. Because of this wide range of potential injuries, and especially the severe effects of whiplash, seeking the treatment of a chiropractor immediately after your accident is extremely important and beneficial. Allowing the effects of whiplash to go untreated will ultimately result in long-term pain. As is the case with all automobile accidents, the presence of injuries and the extent of damage they present with typically go unnoticed for the first few days. In some cases it can actually take...

What's D got to do with it?

What's D got to do with it?
The season of gloomy and sunless days are upon us in Seattle. You may be feeling a little “blue” but passing it off as seasonal depression... or you could be feeling, tired or sick and spend your time counting down the minutes until sunny days are back. But before you go and blame it on the rain, your body may just be lacking some D. Despite its name, vitamin D is not your every day vitamin. Actually, it is a hormone that your body makes by itself designed for you to obtain vitamin D mostly through sun exposure, not though your diet. It helps fight infections, including colds and the common flu and will help regulate the expression of genes that influence your immune system to attack and destroy bacteria and viruses. However, here lies one the the biggest problems for people in northern climates like Seattle: the sun is...

What's up with my back ?

What's up with my back ?
Have you ever looked in the mirror and find yourself having to force yourself to stand up straight. It’s almost like your slouching is creating a hump in your back and you may starting to wonder if your next job will be ringing the bells at Norte Dome.  Your upper back is at the same level of your shoulders and supports your head and neck. Poor posture, stress, gravity, injuries and sedentary lifestyles create increased stresses on your spine causing you to look like your slouching. Posture is how we stand and sit day in and day out, which is the most common cause to develop this spinal condition. The increased rounding of the back can be acquired gradually through improper sitting, sleeping and daily activities. For example, working on your laptop or excessive texting may over time contribute to this. Is this Treatable? The good news is YES. Most...
