Crosby-Huffman, Highlands, Tx We’ve Got Your Back!!!

Whether it is challenging or prosperous times, who can you count on? Who’s got your back?

We all need help. Alone we are nothing. We need support physically, emotionally and spiritually. Most of what we have accomplished in our lives was because people had our back. We are responsible for ourselves, but if we are honest with ourselves, for most things, we could not do it alone.

When it comes to your health care, does your doctor or team of doctors have your back? Do you trust that your health care providers will guide you in the right direction? Through this journey called life, are your doctors inspired to help you reach your health goals or do you feel they are just doing a job, going through the motions to get paid?

Here are a few characteristics of a doctor who truly has your back:

·         Their chief concern is for you being at your best.

·         They provide a healthy vision for the future.

·         They are not merely drug-pushers.

·         They empower you to make healthy choices.

·         They educate and inform you on your level.

·         They are a source of information when you have questions.

·         They present your options and are honest with you about expected outcomes.

·         They care about your family.

Does your current health care team have these traits?  You need two types of health care providers. One that helps in times of crisis and one that helps prevent a crisis from happening by optimizing the function of your mind and body. As Chiropractors we are there in times of crisis when it's necessary and can help in some of those cases, depending on the situation, as with soft tissue injury car accidents or conservative falls. And when we can't, we know where to refer you to for your needs. However, primarily we are there to stave off most major crises, like those "cricks" people often say they get "out of the blue" or after "sleeping wrong", or those situations where people fall to their knees from "throwing their back out." In most cases these are easily avoidable, and we can seriously help to optimize your health and usually prevent them from ever occurring. 

So if you are concerned with your health and doing all that you can for your body, then give us a call today to set up your appointment! Or if you are in the Crosby, Huffman, Baytown, Highland or Dayton areas feel free to stop on by for more information.

 


The top 10 reasons everyone near the Crosby area needs their spine checked!

10. The times that you need your spine the most will be the time that it will tend to give out on you.

If you neglect your spine and nervous system, you can be sure that when you need it the most due to stress, physical activity, business or pleasure travel, it can give out on you. Extra stress on a weakened spine and nervous system can overload your system and contribute to health problems. Lifestyle Care can keep you healthy and prevent these inconvenient episodes from putting a damper on your life.

9. Nerve pressure can exist without pain.
According to the research, pain is not a good indicator of how healthy or unhealthy your spine and nervous system are. Spinal examinations such as posture, weight balance, palpation, muscle testing, computer scans and x-rays are much better indicators. Pain is usually the last to show up and the first to be relieved when you begin chiropractic care. 

8. Nerves supply your whole body.
Your spine protects your nerve system, the master control center of your body. Vital energy flows over your nerves and communications with every cell. Nerve pathways must be clear for the messages to get through. If you have an uncorrected spinal problem, it can cause a decrease in the function of vital organs and systems, and lead to unecessary pain or health problems.

7. Deterioration can begin within 2 weeks.
Researchers found that when the spine is misaligned it can begin to deteriorate within 2 weeks. Think about how many two weeks have passed since you were born, which is often when the first spinal injury or vertebral subluxation occurs. How many two weeks are there from a childhood fall to age 50? Is it any wonder why more than 15 million people are diagnosed with osteoarthritis each year? Don't wait another 2 weeks for a check up.

6. Your quality of life depends on a healthy spine.
If you want to be healthy and active as you age, your spine and nervous system must be healthy. Period.

5. The straw will break the camel's back.
We’ve all heard the expression “the straw that broke the camel’s back.” This is so true for too many people who ignore minor spinal problems. One day they do something simple, like bend down to tie their shoe, and they can’t get up. Major problems are much more painful and expensive to care for, and they can ruin your day, or even worse, your life.

4. Grandma and Grandpa didn't get crooked overnight. They grew that way over time.
 Over time, the spine and nervous system deteriorates, not because of age, but because of subluxations. Just like the tires on your car wear down unevenly when they are misaligned, the same can happen in your spine. You may have some areas in your spine that look and feel like they are 80 years old while you have other areas that are more like a 30 year old. You can keep your entire spine healthy with chiropractic Lifestyle Care.

3. Good posture keeps you young and attractive.
When your body becomes bent over and crooked, you will look and feel old and decrepit. If you keep your posture and your spine straight and strong, you will stay healthier and feel younger and more attractive. People often use drastic measures to preserve their youthful appearance as they age. Don’t you think a facelift would look silly on a person whose spine and nervous system were neglected?

2. You can't afford to get sick or injured.
Now more than ever, you cannot afford to get sick. Crisis care costs are astronomical and an unhealthy spine and nervous system can be the cause of many problems. Getting your spine and nervous system checked and adjusted regularly can help you stay healthier and save you money in the long run.

1. Because you were born.
Everybody deserves to be healthy from the time they are born through their last breathe of life. This includes you. Too many people wait until they have intense pain and suffering before they make their health a priority. Don't let this happen to you.

Posture Aging and Emotional Health

Did you know that the health of your spine can determine your core strength, how fast you age and the level of health you attain now and over the course of your life? It’s a fact!

Your spine is the structural support system of your body. How it supports you can be seen in your posture, which reveals weaknesses that can progressively worsen under the stresses of daily life as you age. Because your structure, spine and nervous system are the lifeline of health and energy to all the vital organs of your body, it is important to pay attention to your posture before severe health problems arise.

Postural distortions may look very slight on the outside, yet they can cause rapid degeneration of your metabolism and immune system on the inside. Both systems are crucial for your overall health and vitality.  Falls, car accidents, sports trauma and even the birth process can accelerate degeneration of the spine, lead to disability, and is a known cause of morbidity. People that have injuries or degenerative changes in their spine cannot function as well in everyday life and do not have the same predicted life expectancy as people with a healthy structure, spine, and nervous system.

For decades, research has shown that postural and structural weakness can cause the body to experience chronic or disabling pain, a weakened immune system, lower energy, fatigue, digestive difficulties, less satisfaction with personal relationships, and a shortened life span. In fact, as early as 1957, Dr. Freeman published findings in the Journal of the American Medical Association stating, “Aging in the spinal discs caused postural deviations leading to intestinal diverticula, hemorrhoids, varicosities of the legs, osteoporosis, hip and foot deformities, overall poor quality of health and life, as well as a shortened life span.”(1)

Attention to the spinal structure and its relation to overall health is far more common in other cultures where life expectancy is higher. Fortunately, this research is now becoming public knowledge and more valued in the western world.

The research was confirmed again in a 2005 study that showed, “abnormal trunk deformity (posture) groups tended to score lower than the normal group with regard to subjective healthiness and life satisfaction measures, including subjective health condition, every day feeling, satisfaction with human relationship, satisfaction with economic condition and satisfaction with present life.” (2)

People with postural problems tend to be more depressed than others, experience chronic pain, have more issues with relationships and even earn lower incomes. Yes, postural distortions and a weaker spinal structure can cause less overall strength and health, and can even have a major effect on a person’s earning potential.

An abnormal or weakened structure, spine and nervous system, subluxation, can cause accelerated aging that can make you feel older than your chronological age and shut down the life-giving nerve supply to your organs.

A simple Posture Self Test can determine if you or a loved one, children included, may be on the road to chronic pain, disability and accelerated aging. A chiropractic examination from our office can help find and correct the cause. Make your posture a priority and schedule your appointments today, anyone within the Crosby, Dayton, Baytown, Huffman, or Highland areas we are here to help you!
