Don’t forget to take out the garbage

What would happen if your garbage didn’t get picked up for a few weeks?

Your house would get pretty stinky wouldn’t it?

The same can be said for you, if the garbage in your Nerve System isn’t dumped regularly too.

Physical, chemical and emotional stresses that accumulate in your Nerve System are called Subluxations (a Chiropractic term for nerve interference).

If it’s not cleared regularly, stress from Subluxations can spill over into your body and cause poor sleep, fatigue, weakened immunity, chronic pains, anxiety or poor digestion.

People who keep their Nerve System ‘clean’ with regular Chiropractic adjustments report having more energy, better recovery from injuries and an improved state of mind.

If you’re feeling sluggish, weak and bogged down, maybe it’s time to dump your nerve system garbage.

Give us a call at 972-285-6703 and we’ll be glad to schedule you an appointment and discuss the benefits regular chiropractic care can offer.

All 32 NFL teams now utilizing chiropractic care

The Professional Football Chiropractic Society (PFCS) has recently announced that all 32 teams in the National Football League now offer their players and personnel chiropractic physician services as part of the triage in managing and preventing injuries.

“From the earliest years of full contact football, their bodies are subject to structural stress that doctors of chiropractic (DCs) are specially trained to care for,” said Spencer H. Baron, D.C., DACBSP, immediate past President of the PFCS and Miami Dolphins team chiropractor for the past 14 years. “Many DCs who provide their services to professional athletes travel with their respective teams throughout the season, treating players up until game time, during the game and sometimes immediately following.”

Saints 2006 first round pick, Reggie Bush, has been receiving regular chiropractic care since playing football in high school and during his collegiate years.

“I look at chiropractic care as important to keeping me healthy and at the top of my game,” Bush said.

Lance Moore of the Saints said chiropractic care has helped in the game.

“Not only did my chiropractor get me back on the field, but he helped me to stay on the field. My body just feels much better overall because of the care I’ve gotten,” said Moore.

Even Hall of Famer Jerry Rice talks highly of chiropractic care. Rice is now a spokesperson for the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to educating the public of the many benefits associated with chiropractic care.

Ask the Doc: What’s been your greatest joy?

What’s been your greatest joy since you began your career?

There have been two patients that have given chiropractic adjustments credit for their pregnancy.

I have a 5 year old that required tubes for an ear infection that has gone away with chiropractic adjustments.

The greatest joy is when patients catch the BIG picture of chiropractic and continue care and make it part of their lifestyle. these are the ones that truely get to “Add Life to Years and Years to Life.”

Ask the Doc: Changes in Chiropractic Medicine

Dr. Lehmann, you’ve been in practice for more than 13 years. What changes have you seen in the field of chiropractic medicine since you began?

I have seen more referrals coming from medical doctors to this clinic. Patient who suffer from TMJ, headaches, back pain. Medical can only mask the symptoms for so long until the patient comes back complaining the pain is still there. So more MDs are referring to me and we have had really good success.

Ask the Doc: Is sitting all day dangerous?

More and more sources are reporting that sitting at a desk all day long is horrible for our overall health. What impact have desk jobs had on your patients?

Let me ask you a question. Who would you think is a more common type of patient in the office. A construction worker or an office worker?

While we have the occasional construction or manual laborer come in for care. Most of the practice members at Mesquite Chiropractic are those who work in office type positions. Many people may forget the fact thet we are meant to move.

If we don’t move, our bodies we become de-conditioned and begin to lose function which in turn cuases problems. Add the increased time is take to get to and from work with an increase in seditary lifestyle at home, and some people are practically sitting all that long.

So when a practice member tells me they weren’t doing anything to hurt themselves, I say, “I know! That is exactly why you are hurt!”

Ask the Doc: Preventative Chiropractic Care

It seems post people seek chiropractic help after an injury or their experiencing pain – why should people see chiropractic care as preventative health instead of simply as a cure to their injury?

The nervous system is the “life line” to the rest of the body. No function can take place without some or total control by the nervous system. So pain or lack thereof can be a poor indicator of how healthly one may think they are. Many times people wait until some sort of symptom manifest. In most cases, the problem has been going on for a while. Ever hear of someone picking up a newspaper or leaning closer to the mirror to shave only to fall to the ground in excruciating pain because their “back went out?”

Well was the newspaper really that heavy? Of course not. That simple action, many of us take for granted everyday,was the proverbial “straw that brole the camels back.” The real problem was there and getting progressively worse before the pain every showed up.

What does a preventative plan look like at Mesquite Chiropractic?

All care plans are tailored to each individual need. Each practice member receive a recommendation based on response to treatment, lifestyle factors that interfere and complicate your spine (like sitting at desk all day) etc… That could mean a once a month or a week preventative recommendation.

Does insurance cover preventative care?

Preventative care sounds logical: saving money in the long run by by heading off potential problems or issues. “Well visits” for medical doctors are becoming more frequent in many insurance plans but unfortunately they’re not available for Chiropractic.

What else should people consider when looking into preventative Chiropractic care?

There are three big areas to consider to make you more or less healthy: Physical, Chemical, and Emotional stresses.

Physical stresses are the day to day activities (or lack thereof) that either move us toward better health or away from better health. Believe it or not, lack of physical movement is more detrimental to the muscles and the spine. I have more patients who are office workers than those who are construction workers.

Chemical stresses are the bad things that get into our bodies to stress the system. Bad food, processed food, junk food, pollution, medications. all put stress on the body.

Emotional stresses affect health: worry, tempers, depression. If a person is not well balance and keep emotions under control they will liking find themselves sick.

I bet you know some of theses people! Don’t be like them!

Ask the Doc: Relieving headache pain

Jennifer asks: Is it true that if you rub below your thumb it will get rid of your headache?

Dr. Lehmann: Depending on the type of headache, acupressure on a meridian point between the thumb and finger can relieve tension headaches. (Click here to see a great technique.) If you find the headache not resolving with acupressure you will want to seek an evaluation with a chiropractor as the headache may be caused by a subluxation.
