Have a Healthier Thanksgiving

At Millville Chiropractic Center, we are thankful for so many things this Thanksgiving, especially for the chance to help the wonderful patients we treat each day.

Americans make a big deal over holiday deals, we make an even bigger deal over holiday eating. For some Americans, the worry of fitting into their jeans after the holiday season is a huge concern. Last year, the United States spent on average 2.3 billion dollars on Thanksgiving dinner food. That’s a lot of food!

Here are some tips from Millville Chiropractic Center to make your Thanksgiving holiday weekend healthier, enjoyable, and pain-free:

  • Avoid bending directly over the oven door to lift out the turkey. Crouch and use your legs and knees for better balance. This will avoid putting all the weight-bearing stress on the lower spine.
  • If you’re going for a long drive to visit friends and relatives this Thanksgiving, make sure to take a break from driving and get out of your vehicle to stretch. This helps restores normal posture and prevent a recurrence of painful neck or low back conditions.
  • When loading your vehicle for the trip or from the grocery, organize your luggage, packages and goods into smaller loads, as opposed to one carrying them all in one loading.
  • Adjust your car seat’s headrest, making sure that the top is no more than two inches below the top of the back your head. Make sure everyone is wearing the seat belt . Most of the estimated 20 million victims of auto accidents in America suffer from whiplash, which can easily be prevented by properly adjusting the seat headrests.
  • Use the right car seat or booster seat for your children and make sure they have a head rest or a child-sized neck pillow so they don’t strain their necks falling asleep in the car. Without support, your child’s head can flop forward and sideways and affect their breathing and even cause misalignment of vertebrae.

 

With the long weekend, you’ll most likely spend time sitting and slouching on the couch or recliner. Try not to sleep in these position because the joints in this position may irritate the nerves and blood vessels and cause muscle spasm.

With these few simple tips from Millville Chiropractic Center and our family, we wish everyone a healthy and happy chiropractic Thanksgiving holiday.

Chiropractic Use Inversely Rated To Opioid Use

In a recent review of studies published in the medical journal Pain Medicine, researchers found patients being treated for back and neck pain with chiropractic care were significantly less likely to use opioid prescriptions for pain relief. Opioids are prescribed by medical doctors to treat pain, including back and neck pain. However, opioids are highly addictive and have been massively overprescribed which has resulted in a massive misuse and abuse of the drug. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), of the 70,237 drug overdose deaths in the United States in 2017, approximately two thirds (47,600) involved an opioid. Given these increasingly staggering numbers, a group of researchers set out to determine if there was any association between chiropractic care and prescription opioid use in the treatment of back and neck pain. What the researchers discovered during their review of current research was that patients receiving chiropractic care for back or neck pain had 64% lower odds of receiving an opioid prescription than those not receiving chiropractic care for their back or neck pain. While further studies are needed, the data thus far indicates chiropractic care for back and neck pain appears to reduce the need for far more dangerous forms of pain relief, such as opioids.

Exercise As Effective As Drugs

It’s concerning that many have taken a sort of inactive position when it comes to their health and inherent ability to get and stay well. We have moved towards becoming a sick or ‘unwell’ nation seeking ‘health’ through the services of a medical physician - a physician who most commonly provides a solution written on a prescription pad. The reality is that there are safe, natural and highly effective ways for us to overcome disease, get well and maintain good health and wellbeing. In a large review just published in the British Medical Journal, researchers from Britain's London School of Economics and Harvard and Stanford universities in the United States found no statistically detectable differences between exercise and drugs for patients with coronary heart disease or prediabetes, when a person shows symptoms that may develop into full-blown diabetes. Most of us already have the inherent tools to fight disease if we make the right choices - something doctors of chiropractic understand. If you’d like to learn more about improving your health the natural way, call your local doctor of chiropractic today!

More TV Equals Less Life

Watching TV may bring short-term enjoyment but too much TV time can not only be bad for your health, it can also shorten your life. Spanish researchers have found those who watch 3 or more hours of TV daily double their risk of an early death. Data from over 13,000 adults with an average age of 37 was analyzed to determine if time watching TV was related to an increase in earlier death. The results were substantial. As compared with those individuals watching an hour or less of TV per day, those watching 2 hours per day increased their risk of early death by 40 percent and those watching three or more hours daily doubled their risk for early mortality. According to researchers, a less active sedentary lifestyle increases body fat, reduces muscle and makes the body less responsive to insulin. As a result, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and certain cancers become more prominent, all of which are leading causes of death. So get up, get out and get active - and don’t forget to turn off the TV!
