Do you know someone with Meniere’s disease?  A recent study of 300 patients showed that getting Upper Neck Chiropractic adjustments, especially if there was a history of some neck trauma, provides very positive improvements for patients with Meniere’s disease.

 

The study tracked patients for 6 years and researchers saw good long-term results.

Many of you will find it interesting that a recent randomized study was done to see if prayer helped decrease migraine intensity. Here's their findings:
"The present study revealed that prayer can be used as a nonpharmacologic pain coping strategy in addition to pharmacologic intervention for this group of patients. "

What a fun surprise and write up!

 

 

If you take a non-aspirin non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) regularly, the FDA recently (7-9-15) strengthend their warning that you are at risk for heart attack and stroke from the drug use.  Common brand names include Aleve, Advil, and Motrin but there is a myriad of other choices.  A more complete list of NSAIDS can be found at this link.

 

This further emphasises why pursuing non-medication routes for joint and spinal pain, headaches, sciatica, and other similar issues is imperative.  Studies have shown that chiropractic patients on average take less pain medications than non-chiropractic patients.  A study in Low back patients also found that patients needed less pain medication and had improved pain relief with chiropractic.

 

See your chiropractor regularly and "pop" those pills less!
