Chiropractic Services Relieve Low Back Pain in Female Veterans

Chiropractic Services Relieve Low Back Pain in Female Veterans: Study Legislation to expand access to chiropractic in the VA gains new momentum
Arlington, Va.- A new study finds that female veterans—one of the fastest growing populations receiving treatment through the Veterans Administration (VA) health care system—experience improvement in low back pain with a course of chiropractic care, according to the American Chiropractic Association (ACA).  Published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, the study’s authors note that musculoskeletal conditions such as back pain are the most common ailments among female veterans. They also report that female veterans on average access VA medical care more frequently than male veterans, have a higher outpatient cost per patient and have a higher rate of service-connected disability.  "Although further research is warranted," the study says, "chiropractic care may be of value in contributing to the pain management needs of this unique patient population."  Chiropractic services are one of the conservative (non-drug) treatment options for pain offered in the VA. They are available at half of the major VA medical facilities in the United States.  Efforts to expand chiropractic services to veterans recently gained new momentum in Congress. Rep. Julia Brownley (D-CA), ranking member of the Veterans Subcommittee on Health, and Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA), have joined forces to broaden the range of services and care options available to veterans by supporting the Chiropractic Care Available to All Veterans Act (H.R. 103). The bill—supported by several major veterans groups—would require chiropractic services to be offered at all U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers and codify chiropractic care as a standard benefit for veterans using VA health care. There is a bipartisan companion bill in the Senate (S. 609).  "Chiropractic's non-drug, non-addictive and noninvasive approach to pain management can help alleviate disabling pain and improve function," says ACA President David Herd, DC. "That's why chiropractors are an important part of the health care team in the VA."  Chiropractors focus on disorders of the musculoskeletal system, most often treating complaints such as back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs and headaches. Widely known for their expertise in spinal manipulation, chiropractors are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, and to provide dietary and lifestyle counseling.

Vibrational Therapy Works! Weight Loss. T Special pricing March

VIBEPLATE™ VIBRATIONAL THERAPY GETTING TREMENDOUS RESULTS & WEIGHT LOSS!

We have been using the vibeplate™ for over a year now with tremendous results! In fact, I lost so much muscle during my 3 weeks hospital and bed rest time due to lo red blood cells that I am not strong enough for stair master. So I am utilizing the vibe plate as thousands of others are across the country … to rehab and strengthen 10 times faster and stronger just by standing on it!

That's right, research shows that you get up to 10 times more muscle gains from doing an exercise on a vibrational plate than from performing on solid ground! That means one set of squats on a vibeplate gives you the equivalent muscle building gain as 10 sets with out the vibeplate!!! If you do 10 sets on a vibeplate, you get the benefit of 100 sets without! How impressive is that???

The reason why vibratory therapy is so key n anti-aging and rehabilitation and weight loss is that every proprioceptor (millions of nerve receptors in every tendon and joint throughout your body that tell you where your body "is" in position if your eyes are closed) is stimulated massively simultaneously bombarding the brain with massive input and stimulation. Just this massive brain stimulation is itself the best anti-aging stimulation you can enjoy!

Research shows that people in nursing homes "bedridden" had vibeplates put under their feet with knees bent for varying periods of time. Their cognitive functions improved dramatically! Next they were able to sit up eventually and rest their feet on the vibeplate on the floor. Eventually they were able to stand with a walker on the vibeplate and really begin experiencing muscle and coordination gains where they could walk again with their walker and many went down to a cane! No drugs just vibrational therpy! If you have been to a nursing home, you know how important it is in later life to be autonomous and mobility is the key to be able to interact as a human with others.

The second half and why these people were able to walk again is the brain is being bombarded with massive input naturally sends out massive signals back to all the proprioceptors, muscles and tendons to strengthen up and build fast and furious doe to all this new stimulation! So toning happens at 10 times the normal response rate! So brain function, muscle building and weight loss all occur at up to 10 times faster utilizing vibrational therapy verses without!

You have likely seen TV commercials for Lilly's on Gunbarrel advertising the amazing effects of vibrational therapy. You do not even have to exercise to loose weight!!! Just stand on the plate for 10 minutes 3 times a day with knees bent or doing small bouncing motions and the same results occur! However, exercising on it works even faster! Imagine how much better a knee replacement would heal standing on a vibleplate and gradually increasing range of motion exercises with vibration would be?

I try to use the vibeplate for 5 minutes before I go play tennis and all stiffness is gone whereas it usually takes a full set of tennis for an hour before I am completely loose.

You have probably heard the vibeplate being used with patients I am treating Chiropractically and rehabbing. There is a whole series of exercises I teach patients for specific rehab of varying problems. It I actually neuromuscular re-education retraining and enhancing the brain and muscle connections and functionality. You do not have to be a Chiropractic patient to benefit from the vibeplate! Remember, 30 minutes a day can result in 30 lbs. per month coming off! We encourage people to take advantage of one of the few and the first vibeplate available in the greater Chattanooga area. We have special packages of vibeplate usage below. And if you want to buy one, we can get you a much better price for different models than retail stores in you decide to ivest in one. Talk to me about sizes and pricing.

$10 =                    per 10 minute Session by the visit

$80 =                    pre-pay for 12 vibeplate sessions

$120 =                  monthly fee to use unlimited 30 days (subject to office hours

and  availability)

Take advantage of these great natural  Vibrational Therapies and You will see the Differences too!!!

Chiropractic For Persistent Headache


Most people are aware that chiropractors are experts in dealing with back issues. As shown in a recent case study published in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine, chiropractors are also equally trained in successfully diagnosing and treating many cases of headaches. In this case study, chiropractic care was delivered to a 54-year-old woman suffering from chronic debilitating headaches for the previous 11 months. After just five chiropractic manipulative therapy and adjunct treatments over 6 weeks, the patient experienced resolution of the headaches. If you or someone you know if suffering from headaches, call your local chiropractor today for a no obligation consultation.

Vitamin E Helpful In Treating Mild to Moderate Alzheimer's Disease


In a new double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group, randomized clinical trial involving 613 patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's Disease (AD), Vitamin E was shown to slow the functional decline of Alzheimer's. AD affects approximately 5 million older Americans and is marked by irreversible, progressive deterioration in memory and thinking skills. In this study, mild to moderate AD patients received either 2,000 IUs of vitamin E daily or a placebo. Over the average follow-up time of 2.3 years, researchers estimated those patients receiving the vitamin E had slowed their functional decline in activities of daily living (ADLs) by 19%. ADLs include things such as making meals, getting dressed and holding a conversation. According to researchers, this translated into a delay in progression of mild to moderate AD by 6.2 months. Another significant finding was that caregiver time was reduced by approximately 2 hours per day in the vitamin E group. Previous studies have also shown Vitamin E effective in those with moderately severe AD. It's important to note that those considering vitamin E supplementation to treat AD only do so under the supervision of a physician as vitamin E can interfere with blood thinners, cholesterol drugs and other medications.
