Have you ever felt a sharp, shooting pain in your lower back? Maybe you were picking up something at work. Perhaps you were picking up your child. Or maybe you have no idea what happened, but you can't move without pain in your lower back anymore. You threw out your back. If you tell anyone you come across, they'll know exactly what you mean. But what does it actually mean? It means you have an acute onset of low back pain just below the ribs and above your pelvis. The most likely thing that happens is a muscle strain, although it could be a bulging disk or herniation. For the most part, throwing out your back is typically a temporary issue that will go away on its own over time. There are things you can do to speed up your recovery and keep it from happening again. In the article below, we will tell you everything you should know about throwing out your back.

How Chiropractic Care Can Provide Stress Relief

on Nov 5, 2019 11:00:00 AM By | Florida Spine and Injury | 0 Comments | chiropractic care
For many people, stress controls their entire life. Thousands of years ago, stress was a good thing. We had to worry about being a midnight snack for a saber tooth tiger. Now we get stressed out if we don't have our favorite midnight snack ready and waiting for us in our fridge. Each ding on our smartphone can send a wave of stress through our body because we don't know what to expect on the other side of that notification. Other things can happen, like someone dropping a book on a hard tile floor that sounds like a gunshot, that can quickly put your body into fight-or-flight mode, gearing up for a possible attack. Your body responds the same whether you experience or simply perceive that potential attack. So whether you're actually involved in a shootout, or you just think you are, your body's stress reaction is the same either way. That fight-or-flight response has served us well for thousands of years. It helps you stay focused and alert, and can even keep you alive. Any system that your body doesn't need at that moment, like digestion, takes a backseat so your body can prepare itself to avoid a potential disaster. Stress works wonderfully in the short term as long as it slows down once it's done its job. When it doesn't slow down, and your stress response stays high when it's no longer needed, chronic stress frequently results. If our bodies never have a chance to recover from stress, the adverse effects build up. If the cause of your stress is physical, such as pain or dysfunction, it can cause a self-feeding cycle. A body in pain tries to protect itself with tension, which makes the pain worse and creates more stress. Chiropractic care relieves stress by interrupting that cycle, helping your body to heal and regain balance. In the article below, we will discuss the common sources of stress and how chiropractic care can help you feel better.

Debunking The Top Chiropractic Myths

on Oct 25, 2019 11:10:00 AM By | Florida Spine and Injury | 0 Comments | chiropractic care
In the age of Google and the internet, we have a wealth of information at our fingertips. In just a matter of seconds, we can have any question answered that we can think of. Who was the first emperor of Rome? The answer is right here. Need to know Abraham Lincolns family tree for a school project? No problem. Curious to know what the 40th digit of pi is? You can find out on this website. Even with so much information readily available at our fingertips, not all of it is accurate. Anyone with a little know-how can set up their own website and put information out into the world, no matter how accurate it is. Because of this, in late 2016, Oxford Dictionaries selected “post-truth” as the word of the year. They defined it as “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion that appeals to emotion and personal belief.” So basically, information doesn't have to be correct, as long as it plays on our emotions. That can lead to false beliefs, which can be very dangerous. You can Google anything you want, find an answer, and trust it without digging any deeper than the first result. People do this a lot when they are sick, researching a political candidate, or writing research papers. The world of chiropractic medicine is no different. There is a lot of misinformation out there that leads people not to trust chiropractors, or to expect too much from them. Since chiropractic care is still becoming widely accepted, many people choose to Google chiropractic care before they schedule their first visit. Some information out there is useful, and other information is just plain false. Below are 6 Myths about chiropractic care online that need to be debunked.
