Good news Crosby and Highlanders Chiropractic can help with neck pain!!

Posted: November 2, 2015
By: Dr Rob Rosenbaum

How well do you know your neck?  This magnificent and delicate structure that holds up your head, moves in many directions and protects your body’s lifeline is often taken for granted…until it is injured.

It may seem simple when looking from the outside, but inside it is a complex structure that is vital for health.

Let’s start with your nervous system. Your brain extends down through your skull and becomes your spinal cord in upper part of your neck. The nerves control and coordinate the function of every cell, tissue and organ of your body. They control all your vital organs including your heart, lungs, liver, stomach and kidneys. When you swallow, clear your throat, or take a deep breath these actions are controlled by the nerves.

All of the muscles that turn your head are also controlled by nerves. When you look to the right or the left while driving your car or when you answer yes or no to a question, be thankful for these nerves. 

There are 7 bones that make up your neck - also known as your cervical spine. When you are a baby and you begin to raise your head to look around, your neck begins to develop its cervical curve which becomes the normal spinal alignment as you age. This alignment ensures proper movement of your neck, good nerve supply, and normal function. 

Unfortunately, your neck can become injured from the birth process, falls, accidents, or other types of stress which can affect the alignment, nerve supply and function of your spine as well as all of the organs, systems and tissues supplied by those nerves. These injuries are known as a vertebral subluxation. They can exist without pain.

Because there is so much affected and controlled by the neck, these subluxations can cause health problems such as neck, shoulder and arm pain, headaches, allergies, attention deficit and so much more. The list of conditions that can be caused by subluxations is long.

Rather than masking your symptoms with over the counter or prescription medication such as muscle relaxers or pain relievers, which can have severe side effects, it is better to get to the cause of the problem and get the alignment of your neck corrected.

Have you ever noticed an older person whose head was hunched forward? Think about how they had difficulty turning and moving? This is what you see when you look at them but what you do not see is the impact this neck dysfunction is having on their health and quality life because of the interference to the nervous system.

Isn’t it time you stop taking your neck for granted? If you are in the Crosby, Highlands, Baytown or Dayton area give us a call to make an appointment today!

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!

Posted: October 7, 2015

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.

If you are in the Crosby, Huffman, Baytown, Highlands, or Dayton area give us a call today and schedule your appointment! We look forward to helping you creat a happier and healthier lifestyle!


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!


Why Stress Affects Everyone Differently

Posted: September 21, 2015
By: Dr Rob Rosenbaum

Stress is a nervous system reaction that causes your heart to beat faster, your muscles to be tense, your stomach to tighten, and your hair follicles to stand up, all as a way to prepare your body for an emergency. When you interpret a situation as stressful, whether it truly is or not, your brain triggers this reaction by  sending a signal over your spinal cord and nervous system  to every cell of your body. In prehistoric times, this would have been the perfect reaction to escape from a hungry dinosaur, but in today’s stress filled world and no Tyrannosaurus Rex, this chronic reaction can cause pain, sickness and disease.

Where your body breaks down from stress may depend on whether or not you have a condition known as vertebral subluxation. A vertebral subluxation is a spinal injury that interferes with the normal function of your nervous system which can affect your health on every level whether you have symptoms or not.  If you have this in your spine, your body is already pre-stressed. 

Many people deal with stress through deep breathing, meditation, exercise and healthy food choices. These are all very good things to do as part of your lifestyle to counter balance stress, but if your nervous system is pre-stressed, the slightest deviation from the perfect stress management plan can send you into a frustrating, uncomfortable, or painful tailspin. Removing this pre-stress causing subluxation can improve your resistance to daily stressors.

Research shows that it only takes the weight of a dime to reduce nerve transmission. Additional research has found that nerve compression can exist without pain and can cause deterioration within two weeks. 

In this pre-stressed condition, your body becomes more vulnerable to outside stresses while other people may be much more resistant. The location of the subluxation can determine what types of symptoms, if any, you experience. You may have nerve interference in the upper part of the neck. Do you get headaches, have allergies, or a stiff neck? Because the nerves fibers that come out of the upper neck also go to the entire body, pressure here can cause or mimic symptoms.

Interference to the nerve supply in the lower back can cause a backache, leg problems and also affect ovary, prostate, bladder or bowel function. Interference to the nerves in the middle of your back can affect your heart and lungs or cause tension, stomach problems, digestive disturbances and discomfort.

Vertebral subluxations can cause stress for decades without any symptoms. This is when serious problems occur, many of which could have been avoided by eliminating this pre-stressed condition right away. The birth process, childhood falls, sports injuries and poor lifestyle habits are just a few causes of subluxations.Removing the cause and optimizing the function of your nervous system is a better immediate and long-term plan. 

Our chiropractic examination can locate pre-stressed areas in your spine that may be affecting your health on every level.  Crisis care is one way to deal with stress, only receiving care when you are hurt. A better option is to remove the subluxation, stress, from your body and keep it out as a part of your lifestyle. This will help you to stress less, live more, and enjoy the quality of life you deserve. If you are in the Crosby, Huffman, Baytown, Dayton, or Highland areas make your appointment today! Make the choice today to live the less-stressed life meant for you!

Smartphone Syndromes

Posted: September 11, 2015
By: Dr Rob Rosenbaum

Smartphone Syndromes

Smartphones have taken over our lives and we can't imagine life without them. However, based on new research and health information, it is important to be smarter than ever about smartphone use.

Neck & Spinal Problems

Many chiropractors are finding that long-term smartphone usage is having a detrimental effect on the health of their patients’ spine and nervous system leading to many types of pain syndromes and health problems. The nerves in the neck directly or indirectly supply vital messages to the muscles of the head and neck, as well as all of the organs and glands of the body. If the messages are altered due to compression the symptoms can be mild to non-existent initially but then come on like a freight train when you least expect it.

Research out of the Center for Musculoskeletal Research in Sweden found that 90 % of the participants held their head in a flexed position when texting or playing games on their smartphone. According to research by Dr. Ken Hansraj, the head, which normally weighs around 10 pounds, can exert a force of up to 60 pounds on the neck when it is tilted forward at an angle of 60 degrees. This repetitive, chronic stress, can cause new alignment issues in the spine as well as aggravate pre-existing ones.

Instead of wedging your phone between your head and shoulder which can make the problems even worse, connect it to a headset or other hands-free device and when suitable, use the speaker phone setting. Better yet, arrange a face to face or webcam connection to communicate.

Wrist and  Elbow Problems

Good Housekeeping  reported that carpal tunnel syndrome is affecting more people from overuse of smart phones. Inflammation in the elbow can cause pain and numbness in the ring finger and pinky finger. It now has its own diagnosis called “Cellphone Elbow”.

We as well as many other Chiropractors are finding that more and more patients need to have their elbows and wrists evaluated and adjusted as an additional service, in addition to their spine, because of this long-term smartphone use. And while the chiropractic adjustments are very effective, being smart about limiting your smartphone use and how you hold it can prevent the problem from recurring.

Smartphones are the Information and Technology System that enables a constant clear stream between you and your personal, business and global connections. Your nervous system is the IT system that keeps your body working properly. Be smart about your body's IT system.If you are in the Crosby, Baytown, Huffman, or Highlands area schedule your chiropractic appointment now so we can detect issues before they are able to develop into something more serious.

10 Tips for Better Sleep

Posted: August 31, 2015
By: Dr Rob Rosenbaum

10 Tips for Better Sleep

It’s tim e we opened our eyes to the importance of good, restful sleep. It’s easy to think of sleep the way we do about charging our phones—just keeping enough of a charge to make it through the day. But if you want to operate at peak performance, you need to monitor the  quality  of your sleep. Here are some helpful hints for making the most of your resting hours:

1.      Do not disturb

Dedicate your work or TV time to other rooms in your home. Defining your bedroom as a place reserved only for sleep, relaxation and intimacy will help you fall asleep when you want to more quickly and easily.

2.      Don’t read on a backlit screen

The backlit screen of a tablet or laptop can actually suppress the melatonin that helps you fall asleep. Dim the backlighting on your devices or read a book, magazine, or listen to an audiobook.

3.      Limit light in the evening

Darkness lets your body know it’s time to go to sleep. Limit your light intake before you go to bed. If you wake up during the night to use the bathroom, consider using a nightlight instead of turning on the overhead lights.

4.      Nap responsibly

There’s nothing like a nap when you need one, but be wary of napping too late in the afternoon as it can disrupt your ability to fall asleep at bedtime.

5.      Breathe deeply

Don’t let the struggle to fall asleep keep you awake. Try deep breathing exercises to help you relax and fall asleep naturally. They may seem difficult at first, but over time you’ll find you become able to fall asleep on command.

6.      Limit caffeine intake

Caffeine affects your sleep long after the buzz wears off. When you feel yourself growing tired at work, get up and move around a bit. Instead of reaching for the coffee in the afternoon, drink some water. You’ll find this pays dividends when bedtime comes around.

7.      Calm your nerves

Chiropractic adjustments can calm your body and your nervous system and help remove stress from your spine. This can help you enjoy the peaceful sleep you need and want.

8.      Be complete

If you have a lot of projects going, try finishing these projects before you turn in, if at all possible. As Benjamin Franklin once said, "Don't put off tomorrow what can be done today." This will help your mind let go.

9.      Exercise regularly

If you don’t already have an exercise routine, try doing some kind of exercise every other day for a week. Pay attention to your quality of sleep on those days, the results will be enough to get you into a routine.

10.    Avoid alcohol before bed

While it may feel like a drink helps you fall asleep, alcohol limits your ability to stay asleep through the night.

 

So along with good restful sleep, remember to come in an get your adjustment. Its like a one-two punch for your optimum health. If you live anywhere near the Crosby, Highland, Huffman, Dayton or Baytown areas feel free to stop on by as we accept walk-ins.

Get Your Kids Back on Track

Posted: August 17, 2015
By: Dr Rob Rosenbaum

School is about to begin which means that families are gearing up for busy schedules, homework, after school activities and the hectic pace of our 21st century lifestyles. To insure that your child has a healthy and successful year, it will be important to have their back aligned, balanced and on track. 

Every activity affects the spine. Contact sports, playing an instrument, sitting, studying, and paying attention in class are all important for a successful school year and they all require a healthy spine and nervous system. When your child is sitting in class listening to a teacher, they listen through their ears, process the information in their brain, and a signal is sent down their spine to their fingers so that they can write their notes which they will later study. If a child is playing an instrument, the instructor often tells them to sit up straight. A healthy spine with good alignment and nerve supply is essential to performance in the classroom and activities. 

When we watch our kids participating in sports, we often cringe at the intense beating that their spines take when they are hit by another person or twisted through their activities. Keeping their spine aligned and balanced is crucial for them to be able to enjoy a healthy and successful year and have a healthy spine for a lifetime. 

Children make 775,000 visits to the emergency room each year because of sports-related injuries. Every 2 and a half minutes a child is injured on a playground. 150,000 kids are treated in the emergency room for football injuries. These injuries are often accompanied by trauma to the child’s developing spine and nervous system. More than 40 Million students carry school backpacks. Frequently more and more textbooks and supplies are required, meaning increased weight. Backpacks that are too heavy or worn incorrectly can injure your child’s back, neck and shoulders, which can lead to other health problems. 

Heavy backpacks, playground and sports injuries can cause non-structural or functional scoliosis, an abnormal curvature of the spine that typically appears in early adolescence. This type of scoliosis develops as a result of misalignment and pressure on the spine and nerve system. Functional scoliosis can often be corrected by addressing the underlying condition through chiropractic care. Kids can injure their spine and remain symptom free until later on in life when the damage becomes more permanent. This, too, can be avoided with regular chiropractic care. 

British medical researchers have found through MRI technology that nearly 10% of children show signs of disc degeneration before reaching puberty. 

Disc degeneration is a condition in which a damaged spinal disc wears down unevenly causing pressure on the nerves and limiting activity levels, stamina, and quality of life as we age. We tend to think of disc degeneration as a sign that we are getting older but this is not true. It is a sign that the spine has been injured which can happen at any age. 

There are so many things to do to prepare for the upcoming school year. As you make your list remember to make an appointment for a “School’s Back” Spinal Exam. This simple examination can determine if your child’s spine is on track or off track. So if you're in the Crosby, Dayton, or Highlands areas be sure you call our office at 281-328-5544 before things get too hectic!  Chiropractic care can keep your child’s spine and nerve system healthy and insure your best school year ever. Get them started on the right track today!

2. Plan Ahead - For a smoother morning, prepare the night before and give yourself some flex time for the unexpected. Create a positive morning routine to keep you focused before you walk out the door.

3. Breathe! – While you are driving, or any time for that matter, if you feel yourself becoming stressed, take a deep breath. Take a few of them. This will calm your nerves and reduce the stress on your mind and body.

Not only will you be learning and growing as a person, you will also find you begin to look forward to the commute time instead of dreading it. Your commute will be a twice a day opportunity to make yourself better.

 5.  Build Relationships – As long as your car is set up for Bluetooth and you are not violating any laws, commute time is a great time to stay in touch with family, friends or business relationships.

Take the time to learn all of the features of your system so that you can utilize the technology in a safe and efficient way. Never compromise safety and pay attention to your driving while you connect to the important people in your life.

6.  Support your Spine – Sitting can put a lot of stress on your spine. Long commutes can cause spinal problems and aggravate existing ones. Use the lumbar support that is built into your car seat or get a portable one that you can use in your car or take with you to work.

Most Top Athletes Use Chiropractic -- Do You?

Posted: June 15, 2015
By: Dr Rob Rosenbaum

The 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup is upon us and the greatest and most watched sporting event in the world is here. Soccer fans everywhere will be gathering to watch some of the most talented and gifted athletes in the world play "the beautiful game" on the most exciting stage in sports.


For many of these athletes, Chiropractic has played an important role in their training to achieve peak performance levels and as a part of their lifestyle.

Dr. Mike Foudy of Mission Viejo, CA, team chiropractor for the Women’s World Cup Championship Team in 1994 said "all but one member of the team received regular chiropractic care during their training and on the days of their matches. Chiropractic adjustments balanced their spine, removed nerve pressure and optimized the function of their bodies. They felt like they healed quicker from injuries and that the care gave them a competitive edge."

Recently, 2015 Master’s Champion Jordan Spieth thanked his chiropractor during his Green Jacket speech. Famous athletes in every sport have made chiropractic care a regular part of training, including NFL greats Jerry Rice, Emmitt Smith and Roger Craig. 

Dr. Eric Plasker, author of the #1 Best Selling,  The 100 Year Lifestyle Workout , was the chiropractor for one of the top youth soccer teams in the nation. During a winning streak that led to a National Championship, Dr. Plasker said, "The team receives adjustments prior to games. During tournament weekends, while the other teams are scrambling to change their lineups due to injuries, our team bounces back fast and brings an energetic advantage to championship games. The players and coach agree that chiropractic care helps them compete at the highest level and avoid injuries." 
For soccer players and for athletes of all ages, there are three components to maximizing your performance and fitness levels that will help you get your ESS in Shape. All three components of the ESS are crucial for any athlete who wants to heal quickly function and at their highest level and participate throughout their lifetime.

E  stands for Endurance. Cardiovascular fitness and is necessary to have a healthy heart and stamina during games. The first  S  stands for Strength. Athletes who are physically strong can get the competitive edge over others. The second  S  stands for Structure which means having a healthy spine and nervous system. 

Unfortunately, too many athletes have their ESS out of balance, focusing on one or two of the components of the ESS rather than all three. This imbalance keeps athletes from reaching peak performance levels and can also lead to injuries. 

Soccer players must pay particular attention to the balance of their ESS, especially their structure, spine and nervous system. Repetitive twisting on the lower back and hips while kicking the ball can lead to misalignments that put pressure on the nerves. This may cause immediate symptoms such as back, hip, leg, knee, ankle or foot pain, or it may lie dormant and asymptomatic until 'the straw breaks the camel’s back.' As time goes on, these imbalances can make an athlete slower and weaker, diminishing the strength of their kick. 

Locating these spinal subluxations can be done easily enough by a chiropractic examination. During this World Cup season, treat yourself like many of the pros do and schedule a chiropractic appointment at our office to see either Dr. Rob Rosenbaum or Dr. Chad Thornton. They would be happy to to add you to to all the various athletes they already treat in the Crosby, Highlands, Baytown, and Huffman areas. Even if you don't consider yourself an avid athlete yet, this is a great way to start; and if you already do, then you should ensure you get the best performace you can. Regardless, you will get a big kick out of the care we provide here at Crosby Chiropractic Center, serving the surrounding areas for nearly 33 years.
