Don't Just sit there, Protective Chiropractic, Clifton Park, NY Blog“Nothing happens until something moves.” - Albert Einstein

Motion is life.

Movement is a vital nutrient to your body, just as much as water or oxygen.

It feeds the a part of the brain called the cerebellum, producing essential nutrient stimulation (called “proprioception”).

It’s also a foundational reason why chiropractors adjust the spine – to restore normal motion to joints, communication through nerves, and subsequently, coordination throughout your entire body.

When your spine is not moving adequately, it begins to decay and ultimately, becomes inflamed.

The spinal joints begin to send stress signals to the brain that can lead to stress hormones being released (not good, this accelerates aging, etc.).

This “motion “deficiency” results in a decrease in proprioceptive messages being sent to your brain.

This often leads to pain.

One size doesn't fit allAt Protective Chiropractic, our responsibility is to to look beneath the symptoms, and address what is causing your condition. To simply address the pain, is like cutting the heads off all the dandelions on your lawn, and hoping that the dandelions will never return. For some patients, that means a few weeks of adjustments – for more severe cases, it could mean months.

As we FINALLY begin our spring thaw here in Clifton Park, many of us know that an unstable foundation in our homes will only get worse due to the expansion and contraction of the ground. The same holds true with our spine. Due to life’s stresses, if your spine shifts and disrupts the delicate spinal nerve roots and spinal cord, it can create many different conditions or symptoms in the body. The reason why chiropractors call these “secondary conditions” is because they are a result of a “primary spinal shift,” or the underlying cause. The location of the spinal shift and where the nerves are being disrupted will give us an idea about your secondary conditions. Some of these include: 

  • Ear Infections
  • Blood Pressure (High and Low)
  • Sinus Problems
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Digestive Conditions
  • Disc Herniation
  • Dizziness/Vertigo
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Asthma/Allergies
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches
  • Muscle Spasm
  • Low Back Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Mid-Back Pain
  • Muscular Imbalance
  • Neck Pain
  • Numbness/Tingling (Arms/Hands)
  • Nerve Impingement Syndrome (Pinched Nerve)
  • Shoulder Pain
  • TMJ

Chiropractic care has an extremely high success rate among patients. 9 out 10 users of chiropractic feel that their treatment has been effective.

Tips to Prevent Back Pain this Spring, gardening positions
  • Maintain a healthy diet and weight.
  • Remain active—under the supervision of your doctor of chiropractic.
  • Avoid prolonged inactivity or bed rest.
  • Warm up before exercising or other physical activities, such as gardening.
  • Maintain proper posture.
  • Wear comfortable, low-heeled shoes
  • Sleep on a mattress of medium firmness to minimize any curve in your spine.
  • Lift with your knees, keep the object close to your body, and do not twist when lifting.
  • Quit smoking. Smoking impairs blood flow, resulting in oxygen and nutrient deprivation to spinal tissues.
  • Work with your doctor of chiropractic to ensure that your computer workstation is ergonomically correct.
