The Top 3 Common Myths about Chiropractic Treatment

Many Canadians continue to have questions about the role that chiropractors play in the healthcare team, and what benefit care may have to their health. To find out what chiropractic can do for you, find a chiropractor in your community. However, there are commonly shared myths that can be easily explained by your chiropractor.

We took three of the most common myths around chiropractic treatment and explained them:

1. Once you see a chiropractor you have to keep going back

This is false. When seeking care from a chiropractor, the chiropractor will perform an assessment including a history and physical examination to determine the cause of the pain or dysfunction. From these observations, a diagnosis will be made and the treatment plan developed in collaboration with the patient – according to their needs and goals. The treatment plan will recommend a number of initial visits to see if the patient responds to care and scheduled re-evaluations. Depending on the patient and the condition, the recommended course of care may vary. Ultimately, the decision to continue care is yours. As a patient, if you have questions or concerns about care, you should feel comfortable to ask the chiropractor for more information on the recommendations made and address any concerns. The care plan should be part of a shared decision-making between the patient and practitioner.

2. Chiropractors are not ‘real’ doctors

Chiropractors are regulated in all 10 Canadian provinces, and are designated to use the title “doctor” similar to physicians, optometrists and dentists after completing the extensive Doctor of Chiropractic degree program. Those professions who are recognized to use the “doctor” title have extensive training in their area of expertise that allows them to be diagnosticians – to provide a diagnosis.

3. Adjustments are painful 

In general, adjustments or joint manipulations do not hurt. In fact, many patients report immediate pain relief. Patients may be nervous about the ‘cracking’ or popping sound that may occur during an adjustment. The sound is believed to result from the release of gas bubbles from the joint.

Cough Relief the Natural Way

Remember when "A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down" was the catch phrase of the day? Well, soon it might be, "A spoonful of honey means you don't need any medicine," because research suggests honey is an effective remedy for childhood cough.

While we're mired in the thick of another cold and flu season, it's time to remind parents of two important points: First, the Food and Drug Administration says cough and cold medications are not appropriate for children ages 6 and younger and may actually be dangerous; and second, research suggests honey may be the best treatment of all for helping children suffering from cough and related symptoms.

Let's deal with the safety issue first. Over the past several years, the FDA has progressively investigated over-the-counter cough and cold medications, many either with dosing instructions for adults and children or for children only, depending on the type/brand. With little research done involving children only (after all, what parent would want their child to be the guinea pig in one of those studies?), the general protocol was for dosing recommendations to be extrapolated from adults to children. In other words, there was little to no hard data providing any sort of a basis for how much of a given cough/cold medicine should be administered to children - or if it should be administered at all.

Eventually, the FDA figured this out and ruled that cough and cold medicines were inappropriate for children under the age of 2, then extended the ban to children under age 6.

Even the medications still considered appropriate for the 6-plus age group (at least for now) have come under fire, with more than a few product recalls for quality-control issues that resulted in a number of products (cough and cold, allergy, fever) made by several drug manufacturers being removed from the shelves for several months in 2010.

Wouldn't it be great if our kids had something natural to help them get rid of those nasty coughs, or at least minimize their duration? Well, perhaps they do: honey. For example, in a 2007 Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine study involving 105 children ages 2-18 with upper respiratory infections, children who were given buckwheat honey (between 1/2 and 2 teaspoons prior to bedtime, depending on age) coughed less and slept better than children who did not receive any honey or who received honey-flavored dextromethorphan (the primary active ingredient in many cough and cold medications).

Talk to your doctor for more information, and keep in mind that honey is not recommended for children in their first year because it may contain botulism spores, which can be harmful to young children's underdeveloped immune systems.


How to Prepare for a Ski Trip

Skiing is a beloved activity for many Canadians. It’s a chance for us to enjoy the outdoors and have a little fun. Families often go for a variety of hills and terrains that cater to different skill levels and age.

If you are skier or have gone skiing before, you know the sport can take a toll on your body, leaving you sore after a day on the slopes. Unfortunately for some, skiing may lead to injury. This is why it is imperative to prepare your body before gearing up. Here are some tips to help ensure your safety when skiing.

Get the Proper Equipment
Do you have all the equipment needed to safely ski? If not, make the time to assess what you need, and take measures to buy or borrow the proper equipment for your next trip down the slopes. If you are a beginner, find a professional to help you determine exactly what you need and ensure that your equipment fits your needs and your body type.

Skiing does involve some serious risks of injury including falls, collisions or simply poor form; therefore, it is critical for your equipment to be in good condition to prevent avoidable injuries. For example, broken skis can put your safety and the safety of others at risk. Be extra cautious and inspect your equipment thoroughly and have it repaired by a professional as soon as you notice any problems.

Protective devices can help prevent the risk of serious injury. Notably, helmets help prevent the risk of a skull fracture from a fall or collision. Other protective measures such as braces can help those with existing issues or injuries. For example, knee braces can reduce the risk of knee injury by up to 90%1. Other protective gear to consider includes wrist guards and spine protectors2. When your equipment fits properly, it allows you to perform at your best.

Take a Lesson
Even the most avid skiers will sometimes take lessons to perfect their technique, form and acquire new skills. As with any activity, we can become accustomed to skiing the same slopes and forget to pay attention to our technique or form. Receiving expert advice from an observer can help tweak or correct bad habits acquired over time. Moreover, lessons can also cover other elements of skiing beyond physical form such as hill rules and regulations, conduct, identifying dangerous slopes, and how to avoid collisions to keep you and others safe.

Do Some Extra Training
Skiing requires agility, endurance, mobility and balance. Overall, skiing can put extra stress on your joints and spine, which is why it is important to ensure that you prepare your body in advance. You may want to consider building cardiovascular and muscular endurance, as well as strength, balance and mobility.  If you’re unsure of how to train for a ski trip, talk to a personal trainer who can prepare a workout for you. Don’t forget to warm-up and stretch too!

Ski trips are fun and exciting, but it’s important to take the time to prepare for them. All those hours of skiing and rigorous activity can put a lot of stress on your body, so make sure you feel prepared and properly conditioned. To learn more on how to prepare for skiing or any sport, read our Fit Tips and consider visiting a local chiropractor.

The CCA wishes you a safe and happy new year! We hope that 2016 brings you happiness, prosperity and good health. Keep an eye out for our January blog series on New Year’s Resolutions and tips for committing to your goals throughout the coming year!


Tips for Snow Shoveling: How to Avoid Back Pain

Depending on where you live, the first few snowflakes may have started to fall early in November. Many people look forward to the first snow that often drapes the trees so elegantly. However, after weeks or months of snow, heavy snow, blowing snow, snow blizzards, snowdrifts…your eager attitude may have changed to—Enough snow already!

Did you know in some parts of the US the average snowfall approaches 10 feet? That is a lot of snow to shovel. It is not surprising to learn that many people suffer from muscle fatigue, low back strain, vertebral disc damage, and even spinal fractures during the winter season. Some of these injuries result from excessive stress to spinal structures by slip and fall accidents.

Shoveling snow remains a frequent cause of back injuries. Injuries are not only limited to the musculoskeletal system but excessive shoveling may also place undue stress on the cardiovascular system. At any hint of shortness of breath or chest pain, shoveling should cease immediately and, if symptoms persists, medical attention sought. - Jean-Jacques Abitbol, MD

A study published by Brad Coffiner at Cornell University’s ergonomic department indicated “…when handling heavy snow with a shovel, the L5-S1 disc has been identified as the weakest link in the body segment chain. The most severe injuries and pain are likely to occur in the back region.” Recognizing the low back is especially susceptible to strain or injury; it would be prudent to review steps to prevent injury.

The Basics
Snow shoveling can be compared to weight lifting, and in some cases, the aerobic aspect of this activity is similar to a workout on a treadmill! To help your body function on demand, consider the following tips:
  • Be heart smart! Don’t eat or smoke before shoveling snow. Avoid caffeinated beverages. These are stimulants and may increase heart rate and cause blood vessels to constrict.
  • If you experience pain of any kind, stop immediately and seek assistance.
  • Pace yourself during shoveling activities. Take frequent breaks and drink plenty of water. Snow shoveling is strenuous work, and it is important to re-hydrate your body often.
  • If the ground is icy or slick, spread sand or salt over the area to help create foot traction. Be aware that some areas may be uneven and could cause you to slip, trip, or fall.
