Clackamas chiropractor sues state board in attempt to clear her name

Pillows are there for support, nothing else (I know you will argue for decorative purposes but let’s think functional). Using the right pillow in the right place during sleep can lead to a sound slumber without the residual neck and back pain upon waking. Sleeping positions The most common sleeping positions are back, side, and stomach. There are some other contortionist positions but we will stick with these for now. With each position, the placement and type of pillow should differ. If you always sleep in the same position, you may want to try the others to see if it makes a change in your comfort level and quality of sleep. Back sleepers As the most common position when falling asleep, it is also the most common position for snoring. If you aren’t a snorer or sleep alone, you’ll want to place a firm pillow under your knees and a medium firm pillow under your head. The pillow under the knees will take pressure off of your low back allowing your spine to assume its natural curves without stress. The pillow under your head should not be propping you up, but providing some support to the natural curve of your neck. Side sleepers This is the most common sleeping position throughout the night, and the best for your spine. If you snore on your back, shifting to your side generally quiets you down. Place a firm pillow between your knees to alleviate pressure off of your hips and low back.

Secrest. The temporomandibular joint, which attaches the rear of each side of the jawbone to the skull, allows the jaw to move freely for such essential tasks as speaking and chewing. Dr. Secrest warns that problems concerning this joint may cause a variety of symptoms, ranging from pain when opening or closing the mouth to a migraine headache , adding that severe cases can even produce nausea, vomiting, digestive issues and throat pain. A common condition among individuals who clench or grind their teeth, TMJ may lead to or result from a malocclusion, which the chiropractor defines as a misaligned bite, and this leads most sufferers to consult their dentist when the problem first strikes. “Sometimes tooth restoration, oral surgery or other dental techniques can resolve the condition, but other factors completely unrelated to the teeth or bite can also cause TMJ,” says Dr. Secrest. The Scottsdale chiropractor cites poor posture as one such case, stating that people often slump or slouch in their chairs or couches for hours at a time without realizing it. This habit can strain the muscles and connective tissues of the cervical spine in the neck while also promoting vertebral misalignments that can pinch nerves. An auto accident or other trauma can cause similar damage and tension in the cervical region, and this damage can manifest itself as jaw pain, migraine headache symptoms, neck stiffness and other debilitating issues, according to the Scottsdale chiropractor. In cases where malocclusion is not the primary cause of TMJ symptoms, Dr. Secrest uses several non-surgical treatment options to relieve the patient’s pain.

A chiropractor’s point of view on pillows and sleeping position

Jameson has battled against false and unjustified charges of professional misconduct made by (the board),” Yunker wrote. Yunker said Jameson had a “thriving” business before the board brought charges against her, but now some insurance companies won’t pay bayview wellness in bayview village for her services, “as is policy toward accused practitioners.” Other patients found out about the charges and stopped going to Jameson, and some patients were informed by the investigator, Yunker wrote. Yunker argued in the lawsuit that the judge’s order is a public document and should be available. The board argues that it’s not. “The reason we went to court is because the board says it’s confidential. We believe it’s not, but they’re the one with the big hammer,” Yunker said Friday. He worried if Jameson publicized the judge’s order, she could face more penalties. “She might be accused of misconduct by a vindictive board or investigator,” he wrote in the court document. Dave McTeague, the Executive Director of Oregon Board of Chiropractic Examiners, said the board decided Thursday that it will agree with the judge’s decision to find Jameson innocent of the charges against her and will release some — but not all — of that judge’s order. That will likely be public next week, McTeague said. The board plans to find her guilty of a minor paperwork violation and Jameson will have to do 12 hours of continuing education, McTeague said.
