October is National Chiropractic Health Month!

National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM) kicks off in October 2013 with the theme of “Get Vertical!” Get Vertical focuses on the importance of joint health at all stages of life and what people can do to keep their joints functioning properly.

ACA encourages everyone to use the month of October to get off their couches and office chairs, stand up and move! In other words, Get Vertical!

Joints are critical to all movement and allow us to carry out normal activities of daily living. Some 150 million to 200 million cases of back pain send people to the doctor every year—and many of those are related to joint injuries. The bones that make up the joint allow movement, but it is the muscles that pull the bones that produce the movement.

The movements that you perform on a daily basis are critical to long-term joint health, as are proper nutrition, a healthy exercise regimen, and a healthy lifestyle. Moving a joint through its full range of motion serves several important purposes. Joints are not supplied directly with blood as are other organs within the body, but instead are nourished with synovial fluid that is forced into the joint cartilage through pressure resulting from body movement. So the saying, “Use it or lose it” applies to joint function.

Journal of the American Medical Association Suggests Chiropractic

Try Chiropractic and Other Conservative Methods First

An article in the Journal of the American Medical Association suggests that patients try chiropractic and other more conservative types of treatment for their back pain. In many cases, pain can be alleviated without the use of unnecessary drugs or surgery, so it makes sense to exhaust conservative options first,” said ACA President Keith Overland, DC.

Chiropractic is Cost Effective and Clinically Effective

“Research confirms that the services provided by chiropractic physicians are not only clinically effective but also cost-effective, so taking a more conservative approach at the onset of low back pain can also potentially save both patients and the health care system money down the line,” he added.

The article, part of JAMA’s Patient Page public education series, explains that the back is made up of bones, nerves, muscles and other soft tissues such as ligaments and tendons that support posture and give the body flexibility. Back pain can be caused by problems with any of the structures in the back.

Chiropractic Well Suited To Manage Back Pain

As neuromusculoskeletal experts, chiropractic physicians are particularly well suited to manage and help prevent low back pain.

Those looking for a dedicated and professional Chiropractor for expert consultation and treatment backed up by friendly and personable service have consistently turned to Launchfit™ by Clinicube®for Chiropractic & Decompression NYC. Dr. Noam Sadovnik and Dr. Lauren Fries are committed to your improve the lives of many in the tri-state area. Call (646) 770-0916 to schedule an appointment today!

Chronic Stress Can Lead to Disease

When we experience an episode of acute stress– a traffic accident, for example – our adrenal glands get a message to release the hormone cortisol, otherwise known as the stress hormone. Cortisol temporarily suppresses the immune system and adds glucose (sugar) to the bloodstream in seconds, giving our bodies optimum power to get through the dangerous or frightening episode.

But when we experience chronic stress – say, caring for a relative with Alzheimer’s or working in a pressured profession – we’ve got low levels of cortisol coursing through our blood all the time. As explained in the European Journal of Immunology, constant low levels of cortisol destroy normal regulation of the immune system, putting stressed-out people at risk of autoimmune disorders.

Chronic Stress Suppresses The Immune System

Chronic stress causes a breakdown in the normal regulation of the immune system. That can lead to autoimmune diseases where we produce antibodies that destroy our own tissues. Some of these 80 diseases include multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and Type 1 diabetes.

Because not everyone reacts to stress in the same way, a blood test to measure the effect of cortisol on immune-system functioning would provide a valuable tool for preventing an autoimmune disease from developing. If someone is in danger of any type of chronic stress, we may not know when they’re at a point of immune system damage and this can help people pay attention to it and reduce stress before they get sick.

Exercise and Nutrition Essential For Stress Management

Exercise, proper nutrition and stress management are essential to keep psychological stress from causing physical illness. For people who already suffer an autoimmune disease, the same blood test would help determine appropriate doses of the synthetic cortisol (steroids) generally prescribed to people with these diseases.
