October 2015

Let your friends and family know that in October we offer a Complimentary Initial Chiropractic Exam ALL MONTH LONG! SAVE $75. Promo includes the history, consultation and exam. Adjustment fee is $30 if rendered.

We offer Interferential and Ultrasound treatments at no extra costs with your chiropractic adjustment. Interferential therapy is an electrical stimulation(similar to a TENS machine) that helps with muscle spasms, pain control and inflammation. Ultrasound therapy is a procedure where sound waves travel through the skin via a coupling agent(gel) to reduce inflammation and help with healing from the inside out. Ask Dr. Amanda if either therapies would help. Some restrictions applies to certain conditions.

Recently there have been an abundance of missed appointments. With our schedules being busy it is very important that if you are not able to make your appointment that you let us know asap! Some people are being turned away from treatment since we don't have a spot in our schedule to see them. Please be courteous and be early for your appointment. Chiropractic appointments are scheduled every 15 minutes. If you are not here at your scheduled time you may be skipped by the next patient or your appointment may have to be rescheduled for another day and time completely. PLEASE BE EARLY!
5 Common Causes of Neck Pain (and How Chiropractic Can Help)

Neck pain can be acute (short term) or chronic (recurring or persisting for months and even years), but regardless, when you're in pain, relief is the first thing on your mind. Just as important as relief, of course, is finding the cause and ensuring you avoid the behavior / action that brought the pain on in the first place.

Here are five common causes of neck pain – and why doctors of chiropractic are well-suited to relieve the pain and determine the underlying cause.

1. Poor Posture: Leaning over a desk all day or slouching in your office chair? You're bound to develop neck pain eventually, if you haven't already. Do this quick test: In an upright or seated position, round your shoulders and back (poor posture). Does it impact your neck as well? Exactly!

2. Monitor Madness: Staring at the computer screen for hours at a time? That's not good for your health (or sanity), but from a neck pain perspective, it's madness, particularly if the screen height forces you to crane your neck up (too high) or extend it down (too low).

3. Sleep Issues: Ideally, we spend a third of our day sleeping, so your sleep habits – for better or worse – can have a dramatic effect on your health. With regard to neck pain, anytime you sleep in an uncomfortable position, particularly one that stresses your neck musculature (think about side-sleeping while grabbing your pillow tightly, sleeping on your stomach with your arms out in front of you, or even sleeping on your back, but with a pillow that doesn't adequately support your neck), you risk neck pain.

4. Technology Overload: We may spend a third of our day sleeping, but we increasingly spend the other 16 hours typing, texting, tapping and otherwise interacting with our smartphones, tablets, etc. Bottom line: bad for your neck. One doctor has even coined the phrase, "text neck," to describe the neck pain that can result from this constant technology interaction.

5. The Wrong Movement: Twisting, turning, stretching and stressing your neck is an easy way to cause neck pain. While the muscles in the neck are strong, they can be strained, sprained and even torn, just like any other muscle.

It's important to note that beyond these common causes, various other health issues can also contribute to or directly cause neck pain, including fibromyalgia, cervical arthritis or spondylosis (essentially spinal arthritis), spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal), infection of the spine, and even cancer. The good news is that a doctor of chiropractic can help identify which of these or the above causes is to blame.

When neck pain strikes, most people turn to a temporary solution first: pain-relieving medication. But that's not a permanent solution, of course, and it doesn't address the cause of the pain at all, which could be something relatively minor – or more serious. What's more, research suggests chiropractic spinal manipulation is actually more effective than over-the-counter and prescription medication for relieving both acute and subacute neck pain.

Suffering from neck pain? Then give your doctor of chiropractic a call. They'll help you relieve your pain and determine the cause so it doesn't return.
3 Ways to Avoid Breast Cancer

With October marking breast cancer awareness month, there are a few preventative steps you can take to ensure you minimize your chances of being diagnosed. A woman today has about 1 in 8 chance of being diagnosed with breast cancer at sometime during her life, according to the National Cancer Institute.

Breast cancer is now the No. 2 cause of cancer death in the United States and the second most common cancer in women. By changing a few lifestyle habits you can take a proactive approach when it comes to your health. Here are three simple tips:

Get enough sleep:

Sleep is critical when it comes to keeping breast cancer at bay. Research has found that among post-menopausal breast cancer patients, getting less than six hours of sleep raised the risk of recurrent breast cancer. By getting 8 hours of sleep every night, you can minimize your risk of getting breast cancer by giving your body what it needs to recover.

Watch your weight:

Those few extra pounds may do more harm to your body then affecting your heart, they can also put you at risk for breast cancer. Women who are obese are also at risk of higher recurrence and death from breast cancer, according to the American Cancer Society. By keeping the pounds off, you are also keeping the risk of breast cancer down.


One way to ensure you are keeping the weight down and reaping other positive benefits for your overall health is by exercising. Exercise can not only help you maintain a good weight, but it will also cut your chances of getting breast cancer by as much as 30 percent, according to researchers at the University of North Carolina. So, get moving toward a healthier you!



Power of Touch: How Specialized Massage Helps Cancer Patients

Some types of massage can help break up scar tissue, reduce post-surgery lymphedema, doctors say.
After multiple surgeries for melanoma, Joanne Farmer’s cancer was vanquished, but she was left chronically stiff and sore. With traditional medicine offering no help, Farmer turned to alternative therapies, including massage.

“I had some reservations about getting massage because of things I’d heard people saying about how you’re not supposed to,” said Farmer, 49. “But I decided to take the risk anyway because I felt my body really needed it.”

Over the years, massage has not only improved Farmer’s spirits, but it’s also eliminated her aches and pains. “I am calmer,” Farmer said. “I can fall asleep more easily. My stiffness and phantom pains are gone. And most amazingly, so is my scar tissue.”

Massage is becoming increasingly popular as an add-on for cancer patients. Turns out, the age old therapy has a broad range of healing effects, from amelioration of adhesions to easing of symptoms like pain and fatigue. And that has led to more acceptance in traditional settings.

Part of the turnaround is due to a better understanding of what the therapy does and does not do.

For years oncologists told their patients to steer clear of massage, fearing that the manipulation of skin and muscle might cause cancer to spread, said Dr. Benjamin O. Anderson, chair of the Breast Health Global Initiative in the Public Health Division of Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

“But that’s been proven not to be true. We also know now that it can help with the scarring process and we actually encourage massage when women start to get adhesions,” said Anderson, who also directs the Breast Health Center at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) and sees patients at the University of Washington.

Adhesions, Anderson explained, can form as the body tries to heal after a surgery.

“When skin touches down to muscle, it can stick like superglue instead of being able to be mobile,” he said. “Massage can break up those adhesions and help maintain, and in some situations, regain, mobility.”

Another cancer massage technique that has become popular is manual lymphatic drainage. Therapists use gentle pressure in rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow and encourage drainage when there’s been an abnormal buildup of fluids.

A common complication after surgery for breast and ovarian cancer is edema, said Dr. Julie Gralow, a professor of medical oncology at the University of Washington and director of breast medical oncology at SCCA. “Lymphedema is basically the backup of lymph fluid frequently caused by scarring and swelling in the area. Massage helps move the fluid through the whole lymph system.”

This kind of massage requires specialized training, Gralow said.

It’s one of the types of therapy offered by Karen James, a Seattle-area licensed massage practitioner who specializes in working with cancer patients. It was James who helped banish Farmer’s pain.

“Some of the most rewarding experiences I have are when a patient is having complications with physical restrictions from lymphedema,” James said. “I can use the [manual lymphatic drainage] technique to provide relief. The release of fluids can increase mobility and function for patients and make them feel much better.”

Like many alternative therapies, massage hasn’t gotten much attention in the main stream medical literature. But a smattering of small studies suggests that the therapy can help children with pain and anxiety during cancer treatments and adults with fatigue and nausea associated with chemotherapy.

A 2013 study published in Applied Nursing Research compared 20 patients who got back massages during chemotherapy to 20 who did not. The researchers found that massage helped reduce anxiety during and after chemotherapy and also helped with fatigue.

Another study explored the use of massage in 52 Portuguese children who were on a hospital cancer ward. Researchers found that massage could decrease pain intensity allowing children to be more active, according to the report published in 2013 in the Journal de Pediatria.

While reports like these are suggestive, cancer specialists would prefer to see much larger studies.

Gralow said she’d welcome some hard evidence on the benefits of massage therapy.

Without that evidence doctors have to go on anecdotal reports. “I do think that for a subset of patients massage can help with relaxation and the rejuvenation that comes from it can have a very positive effect,” she said.

Less Sleep = More Colds

You're not getting enough sleep, night after night, but you continue to push it, hoping it won't do any harm. Then cold season hits, and you find yourself getting even less sleep because you come down with more colds than usual.

It's a vicious cycle you can't seem to escape: lack of sleep, cold, lack of sleep, another cold. Is there a connection? Definitely, according to a recent study that suggests people who sleep less than six hours a night are more likely to catch the common cold than people who get more sleep nightly.

In the study, published in the journal Sleep, researchers tracked 164 men and women for a week, monitoring their sleep patterns. At the same time, they exposed all study participants to the rhinovirus, better known as the common cold. Results showed that while only 18 percent of participants who more than six hours nightly contracted a cold, 39 percent who slept less than six hours did. On average, sleeping less than six hours a night made participants more than four times more likely to contract the rhinovirus compared to participants who slept seven hours or more.

In an article on, Shalini Paruthi, director of the Pediatric Sleep and Research Center at Saint Louis University, summed up the research findings: "It looks like an adequate amount of sleep allows our body to mount a better immune response."
