KEEP IT MOVING: CHIROPRACTIC CARE

FYI….85% of the US population will have back pain sometime in their life.

It goes without saying that a lack of mobility can lead to both mental and physical problems. Your emotional state, immune system, sleep, blood pressure and bone density are all at risk. To keep your spine in good health takes work and regular exercise is key. But you can also benefit from spinal alignment adjustments to correct posture. That means entering into the care off a chiropractor.

Over ten years ago I had my first episode with back pain. We had just moved into our home and I am sure I did waaaaay too much lifting. Pay professional movers??? Never thought of it at the time. I am not kidding you when I say I could not move, I still remember the pain. And it got me emotionally as well, all I could think was “How can I live the rest of my life like this” Well, I never really thought of going to the hospital, thinking all they would do was give me meds and maybe suggest surgery. I know that is an extreme thought process but if you know me you know that is how I really do think. I asked my daughter to drive me to Franson Chiropractic in Beverly. I happened to work with Dr. Stephen Franson’s mom at the time and I trusted him. His wife Camilla became my heroine. After several visits she had my back in pretty good condition. She educated me on good spinal health care and convinced me to maintain my spinal care with regular monthly visits-that was 10 years ago.

I have moved on to another practice, but that is for convenience only and I still would recommend Franson Chiropractic. But now my monthly visits are to North Shore Spine and Rehabilitation Center in Woburn. Dr. Pendalino and Lisa are great!!!! Lisa is friendly and very knowledgeable with insurance benefits. Dr. Pendalino takes time to explain the different treatment approaches available, there are many causes of back pain, and each patient’s treatment is unique. You may be treated for relief, corrective or wellness.

Some of the causes of back pain include: fractures, degenerative disk disease, herniated disk, spinal stenosis, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, sprains and stains (most common), cancer, kyphosis, lordosis and scoliosis. Diagnosis is made with a physical examination and maybe x-rays, Ct scan, MRI, myleogram, disography, EMG(nerve conduction study), bone density or bone scans.

Because the spine can compress on nerves that “feed” certain areas of the body chiropractic adjustments can help with many day to day ailments (ADHD, allergies and asthma included). Dr. Pendalino’s website-www.woburnchiropractic.com-is overflowing with information including an interactive spine that illustrates each disk and the organs/nerves that are affected. So keeping theses disks from compressing or spinal adjustments to correct posture can help.

Chiropractic therapy is not a new concept, Hippocrates suggested we “get knowledge of the spine for it is the requisite for many illnesses.”

To continue taking the preventative “wellness” approach to maintain good spinal health once a month I take a few minutes and get adjusted!!!!
