ADJUST YOUR SPINE FOR MAXIMUM STRENGTH

September 9th, 2012
In building…engineering technology, there’s a concept called PRE-LOADING which refers to a PRE-EXISTING TENSION within a BEAM about to be STRESSED. In human technology, think of your SPINE, as an organic PRE-LOADED beam, about to be stressed by THE STRESSES OF LIFE… from a physical and mental standpoint. If you are going to cook your spine throughout the day in a rounded/ hunched over position, do yourself a favor by re-setting your spine back to its optimal PRE-LOADED state so you can be energy efficient and stress-strain free. That is why it is essential to mold the curves of the spine with either specific yoga poses like cobra or sphinx or with corrective chiropractic postural devices…everyday.

What Chiropractic Techniques are used at THE LIFE CENTER? The Brook Method

March 23rd, 2012
In order to customize the right technique for each person Dr. Jeremy Brook studied with several chiropractic masters. The list below is a brief explanation of the techniques he uses to adjust and correct one's subluxations. PALMER METHOD This will involve any of a number of specific adjusting techniques, such as full spine, gonstead, & HIO, with the addition of a philosophy which emphasizes  the role of the Innate Intelligence of the body in the healing process.  It will not utilize any therapy other than hand adjustment. THOMPSON A specific technique for adjustment of the full spine on a special table which has a slight drop in the cushions to improve the effectiveness of the adjustment without as much force into the patient. GONSTEAD A specific method for full spine adjusting utilizing the use of full spine x-rays to locate spinal mis-alignments. HIO -- hole in one AKA Toggle Recoil A specific adjustment of the upper cervical spine... the upper part of the neck, closest to the brain.This technique utilizes a side posture table with a cervical head piece which makes a slight drop when the adjustment is given. MLS Developed by my mentor Dr. Arno Burnier. It is an advanced technique that involves visulization, motion palpation, and advanced delicate adjusting. MOTION ANALYSIS (PALPATION) An examination procedure used to test the mobility of spinal joints by feeling for movement between the vertebra. ACTIVATOR It is a small had held impact tool in which a quick impulse is applied to correct a vertebral mis-alignment according to a set pattern. LOGAN A non-force technique taught by Logan Chiropractic College, which utilizes a soft steady pressure on ligaments around the tail bone for release of tension and vertebral mis-alignments in the lower back.…

THE POWER ZONE OF THE SPINE

August 5th, 2011
Watch this video to bring your awareness to a zone of the spine that has tremendous biomechanical, neurological, and energetic properties and potential when properly aligned... I’m talking about the lumbo-sacral region which is remarkably designed. How do you create optimal alignment and flow in this area? First get a chiropractic adjustment to this area you fee up the bones, the joints, and the discs of this intricate area. After the adjustment do cannon balls, side bends, and rotations to lubricate the region and activate your innate intelligence. When you remove the interference your innate intelligence will create optimal internal organic alignment. Throughout the day pay attention to the area right at the front of your sacrum to see which way your spine is tipping …forward or backward? Don’t commit hari hari…. You know when the samurai ends his life with his kitara sword. This is the area of your power center….your solar plexus… Care for it well and you will be rewarded. Until we see you in person…stand tall my friend!!…

The Spinechecker Becomes Webster Technique Certified

July 27th, 2010
Chiropractic in Pregnancy for Safer Births This past April I began my training with the ICPA, International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, by becoming certified with the Webster Technique. Check out what Dr. Jeanne Ohm has to say about it! The Webster Technique: A Technique for Pregnant Women Written by Jeanne Ohm, D.C. You have seen the Webster Technique -- that chiropractic technique to help pregnant mothers with breech babies -- featured on The Learning Channel's hit series "A Baby Story." You have read about it in Mothering magazine and Midwifery Today. You have seen it on the Internet. You have heard it talked about by birthing professionals. Perhaps potential patients have asked you about it. But what is it? The Webster Technique, discovered by Dr. Larry Webster, founder of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), is a specific chiropractic adjustment for pregnant mothers. It is a chiropractic technique designed to relieve the causes of intrauterine constraint. Formerly known as Webster's "In-Utero Constraint Technique" or "Webster's Breech Turning Technique," the Webster Technique was developed by Dr. Webster in 1978. For over 20 years, it has been highly successful in relieving intrauterine constraint and allowing babies to get into the best possible position for birth. What is intrauterine constraint? Intrauterine constraint is defined as any forces external to the developing fetus that obstructs the normal movement of the fetus. Intrauterine constraint can prevent the developing fetus from attaining a head down vertex position and achieving a vaginal birth, resulting in cesarean section delivery. Today, nearly 13% of all cesarean deliveries performed are due to breech presentation. In 1985, the World Health Organization (WHO) proposed 15% as the highest acceptable limit for cesarean section rates. This figure was based on the cesarean section rates of countries with the lowest perinatal mortality rates in the world. In 1991, the figure was adopted as a goal for the year 2000 by the United States Department of Health and Human Services. Currently, approximately 4.6 % of all singleton pregnancies develop into breech presentation and the incidence of perinatal mortality with breech presentation is approximately four times that of a vertex presentation. While many infants in breech presentation before 34 weeks will convert spontaneously to a cephalic presentation, few will do so afterward. Decreasing the number of caesareans for breech presentation has been offered as a strategy to reach the Healthy People 2000 goal of 15% cesarean section rate. The importance of preventing intrauterine constraint and subsequent cesarean section delivery is apparent, considering in the United States approximately 22% of all births were cesarean section deliveries. In Canada the incidence of cesarean section ranges from 15%-22%, depending on the province. The Webster Technique is a chiropractic means of decreasing the number of cesareans for breech presentation. Performance of the Webster Technique involves analysis of the relationship of the bones of the pelvis, and correction of aberrant biomechanics through the use of a light force chiropractic adjustment of the sacrum (Step 1). It also involves analysis and relief of…

Disc Problems & Back Surgery

July 23rd, 2010
At this very moment people are lying in bed in agony from disc pain. Is surgery their only option? Can chiropractic help? WHAT IS THE INTERVERTEBRAL DISC? The intervertebral discs lie between the spinal bones and act like shock absorbers, preventing the bones from painfully rubbing together. They are made up of a tough fibrous outer ring (annular fibrosis) and a gel-like center (nucleus pulposus). Your 23 spinal discs help give your spine its sideways curves (a curved spine is sixteen times stronger than a straight one) and also join the vertebrae together. Discs contribute to your height - in the morning you are about 1/4" to 1/2" taller than you were the night before because your discs thin a little during the day and expand while you sleep. DISC PROTRUSION AND PROLAPSE: Surprisingly, a disc may show signs of wear and tear as early as age 15. As you age, the disc may lose fluid and small cracks (lesions) form in the outer walls. This agin may be accelerated by the vertebral subluxation complex, a spinal distortion chiropractors correct. If the nucleus pulposus begins to push the annular fibrosis out of shape, it’s called herniation. If the herniation causes the disc to bulge a little, it’s called a protrusion. If the disc bulge goes into the spinal cord or puts extreme pressure on the lumbar nerves, it is a disc prolapse. A prolapse may cause such severe pain that sitting, standing, walking, or lifting could be impossible. Disc degeneration may damage spinal nerves and contribute to conditions in the pelvic area. Among these are endometriosis, infections, (bladder, vaginal, kidney), urinary retention, prostate problems, miscarriage, sterility, sexual impotence, cystitis, menstrual cramps, and constipation. It is not uncommon for an individual who has a chronic back problem to suffer from one or more of the above problems as well. THE MEDICAL APPROACH: The medical approach to disc problems is often a combination of painkillers, muscle relaxers, and physical therapy and/or surgery. Many medical doctors and others find that patients who decide to pursue a non-operative approach towards disc herniation may not need the surgery. Back surgery usually performed by an orthopedic surgeon is at times warranted. We must mention here, however, that cauda equina syndrome, which includes buttock numbness, leg weakness and bladder and bowel dysfunction is considered by many to be the only absolute indication for surgery. Surgery for people with back pain can be highly effective, however, results can vary widely. This approach is controversial with some individuals claiming that relief following back surgery is often short-lived and that after about six months to a year, many of the spinal problems recur.  Although a high number of patients who have had back surgery report no improvement within one year of having surgery, spinal surgeries are increasing much faster than the population. Then again, on the other side of the spectrum are those whose lives are changed for the better, with miniumal residual problems. THE CHIROPRACTIC RECORD: A proper alignment…

Chiropractic Adjustment Cuts Blood Pressure

July 23rd, 2010

Study Finds Special 'Atlas Adjustment' Lowers Blood Pressure http://www.chiroeco.com/chiropractic/news/1052/52/Study:-Atlas-adjustment-decreases-blood-pressure/ With millions of people getting amazing results and research project after research project backing the findings, Chiropractic finally gets it's props on the #1 medical web site in the world. Tens of millions will give this response after reading this research article, “I didn't believe it. Chiropractic is good for the heart?” The proof, however, is in the stethoscope!!!! Whether or not you have symptoms or a positive tests, you need to find out if your atlas is in it's normal position before it's too late, deadly, and in need of the medical model. The atlas is the top bone in the spine upon which your skull rests. When you do your Funky Chicken exercises your skull glides on this bone. When you shake your head “NO” your atlas rotates on the bone below, the axis-C2. When the atlas gets stuck it causes interference to the nervous system, specifically to your BRAIN STEM! All you have to do is do a google search on the brain stem and see how important that area is for FULL BODY FUNCTION! That is why it is vital to get adjusted and keep your joints gliding….not degenerating…thereby allowing your nervous system to function at it's natural level. For those under Chiropractic care ….. this is truly exciting when you realize that getting adjusted isn't just good for your joints….it's good for your heart..your lungs…your liver…your life! You get the point!…
