New Wilmette Chiropractor Offers Tranquil, Healing Environment

Elite Wellness offers corrective therapies, chiropractic adjustments, activator technique, needleless acupuncture, custom foot orthotics, chiropractic services for athletes, neurological and spinal screening, and lifestyle advice.

Ive been in and out of physical therapy for a year and its helped a little, but Im not where I want to be. So, three weeks ago, when Jansens wife told him about Elite Wellness, a new chiropractic center opening in Plaza Del Lago, that was offering free consultations, Jansen decided to give it a try. I felt some immediate relief, Jansen said of his first visit to Elite Wellness. The machine stretched out the right parts of my back, and his manipulating me and using the activator, as well as needless acupuncture helped. The owner of Elite Wellness: Dr. Ben Duke, a seasoned chiropractor who described his practice as a healing program in a tranquil environment thats predicated on fast results. Everyone has some type of stress, and that accumulates and can cause many physical symptoms, said Duke, who sold his seven-year practice in Mokena, Illinois and moved to Wilmette to start a family with his fiance, Jacqueline Cesaroni. Bad posture or stress on the body can cause nerve interference, and getting proper motion to the body can remove the interference so the body can heal itself. Duke grew up playing baseball, and first discovered an interested in becoming a chiropractor when he was injured in high school and went to see a chiropractor who he claimed saved him from having to have surgery. After graduating from Eastern Illinois University with a double major in biology and chemistry, Duke played minor league baseball for a year, and then headed to medical school. Shortly into the year, he had a change of heart when it came to his career choice. I started doing observatory hours in hospitals for medical school and I realized I wanted to be on the proactive side of health care, said Duke. Three and a half years later, Duke graduated from Palmer Chiropractic College.

Chiropractor convicted of exploiting the elderly

The disciplinary action against Eli Guterman was announced by the state Board of Regents . The state charged Guterman with professional misconduct after he was convicted of six counts of forcible touching, a misdemeanor. The incidents occurred between 2010 and 2012 at Guterman’s business, Back N Touch at 6800 E. Genesee St., Fayetteville. In an application to surrender his license, Guterman admitted guilt to the professional misconduct charge. The board said Guterman will be sentenced to six years probation on the criminal charges. The board also announced disciplinary actions against three Central New York nurses. Lisa Merz, a registered nurse of Pulaski, agreed to turn in her nursing license after being accused of stealing prescription painkillers while working at Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse. She admitted guilt to the charge in an application submitted to the board. Merz stole the drugs from an Upstate patient between July and August of 2010 and created false entries in hospital records to conceal her theft, according to the board.

My debut at twerking gets me to the chiropractor’s couch

It happened last year when the chiropractor, whose name as not released, treated a 4-month-old baby girl for torticollis, or what’s described as an abnormal neck position. During the adjustment, the doctor accidentally fractured one of the baby’s vertebrae. “Another few millimeters and there would have been a devastating spinal cord injury and the baby would have either died or had severe neurological impairment with quadriplegia,” Dr. Chris Pappas, who later treated the girl and aided in her recovery, told the Herald. Editor’s Note: ObamaCare Is About to Strike. Are You Prepared? Pappas filed a complaint with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency, which later referred the case to the Chiropractic Board. He then received a letter about three weeks ago informing him that the case had been closed and the chiropractor in question had agreed to complete further education. Pappas said the Board’s decision in essence gives the OK to chiropractors to practice on infants and small children, something that he thinks is unsafe. “I think they have put the chiropractor’s interests before the interests of the public,” he told the Herald. “[Treating infants] is inappropriate and it carries a very small but real risk of causing damage, and in some cases, devastating damage.” However, Laurie Tassell, president of the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia, argues that it is safe to practice on a person of any age. “Chiropractic care can be remarkably gentle,” Tassell said. “Being a five-year, university-trained spinal health expert, a chiropractor will modify their adjustment techniques to suit the age and spine of each individual child.” A 2007 study published in the journal Pediatrics found that performing spinal manipulations on children could lead to adverse side effects, like brain hemorrhaging and paraplegia, the Herald reported.

Back Pain Treatment Often Not In Line With Guidelines

Exercise Eases Low Back Pain

“This is kind of concerning,” said Dr. Steven Cohen, an anesthesiologist and critical care doctor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore who didn’t participate in the research. Surgery, injections and scans for back pain “have all gone up pretty dramatically,” he told Reuters Health. “We have increased utilization, yet we don’t have better treatment outcomes.” The American College of Physicians and the American Pain Society recommend that people with low back pain consider treatment with Tylenol or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), as well as heating pads and exercise. The groups say doctors should only order CT and other scans when they suspect nerve damage. Opioids are only recommended for patients with “severe, disabling pain” that doesn’t get better with over-the-counter medicines – and their risks, such as for abuse and addiction, should be weighed against potential benefits. For the new study, Dr. Bruce Landon from the Harvard Medical School in Boston and his colleagues tracked nationally-representative data on outpatient visits for back and neck pain collected between 1999 and 2010. The researchers had information on about 24,000 visits, which represented a total of 440 million appointments across the U.S. During that span, they found the proportion of patients prescribed Tylenol and NSAIDs dropped from 37 percent to 25 percent. At the same time, the proportion given narcotics rose from 19 percent to 29 percent. About 11 percent of people with back pain had a CT or MRI scan in 2009 and 2010, compared to seven percent in 1999 and 2000. Finally, although the rate of referrals to physical therapy held steady during the study period, the proportion of patients referred to another doctor – likely for surgery or other treatments – doubled from seven to 14 percent, the researchers reported Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine.

They found that in people who were normal weight, defined as a body mass index of 20 to 25, the risk of low back pain was 2.9%. (A 5′ 10″ person who weighs 174 lbs has a BMI of 25.) In those who were overweight (BMI of 26 to 30), low back pain risk was 5.2%. In the obese, a BMI of 31 to 35, the risk grew to 7.7%. And in the morbidly obese, a BMI of 36 or more, the risk was 11.6%. (A 5′ 10″ person weighing 251 lbs has a BMI of 36.) “We showed both increased BMI and inactivity were independent risk of low back pain,” said Smuck. “Perhaps the best news out of this study is that big gains can be made by making some incredibly modest changes in activity.” The researchers found different ways to achieve the improvements: The typical overweight person increasing their amount of moderate activity such as brisk walking, riding a bike, or general gardening by less than 20 minutes a day can reduce back pain risk by 32%. For people with BMIs of 36 or more, the average duration of time spent during a bout of moderate activity was 1.3 minutes. However, by increasing that time by 1 minute, the risk of back pain dropped by 38%. For years, anecdotal evidence has led spine specialists to tell overweight people to lose weight and exercise; now there is hard data to back up those beliefs, said Michael Reed, a physical therapist and spine specialist with the Hospital for Special Surgery in Jupiter, Fla. One question the study could not answer, however, is why obesity increases the risk of low back pain.

Back Pain? Choose Wisely!

4. Don’t use electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction studies (NCS) to determine the cause of axial lumbar, thoracic or cervical spine pain. 5. Don’t recommend bed rest for more than 48 hours when treating low back pain. To create this list, NASS appointed a multidisciplinary task force to identify five areas in which to make recommendations. Based on the scientific evidence, existing clinical practice recommendations and expert opinion, the task force collaboratively drafted a list of nine recommendations which was subsequently submitted to the NASS Board of Directors for review and ranking. After further refinement, the final list was approved by the NASS Board of Directors. “The North American Spine Society has shown tremendous leadership by releasing its list of tests and procedures that may be commonly performed in spine care, but aren’t always necessary,” said Richard J. Baron, MD, president and CEO of the ABIM Foundation.

Healing techniques involving massage are thousands of years old and have been mentioned in ancient texts from Egypt, Rome, China, Greece, India, and Japan. Massage Therapy: When Is It Used? Massage therapy can be used to address a number of different health problems, including sports injuries and chronic pain. Musculoskeletal problems, pre- or post-surgical treatment, lymphedema [excessive fluid buildup that often occurs in the arms or legs] those all are probably most effectively treated by massage, says Ron Schneeweiss, professor of family medicine at the University of Washington in Seattle. According to Schneeweiss, massage therapy is the type of alternative medicine most often acceptable to conventional doctors. Massage Therapy: Is It Effective? Massage therapy has been shown to be effective in varying degrees. Massage can help: Ease pain in cancer patients. A study of 380 adults with advanced cancer, some of whom were in hospice care, showed that massage therapy, provided by trained massage therapists, helped to reduce patients’ pain and improve their mood. Relieve lower back pain. Therapeutic massage has been shown to be useful in alleviating lower back pain. Ease migraine headaches.

Why Acupuncture Is Giving Sceptics The Needle

Heard about the latest art installation? Artist exhibits his latest paintings… in gallery owner’s ear

Gallerist Tig Sigfrids

The apparently real, but small, benefits from acupuncture in pain control led to Nice approving acupuncture for headaches and back pain amid a chorus of grumbles from the sceptics Yet according to David Colquhoun , the results showed very little difference between even the acupuncture and no acupuncture groups. The paper led to a flurry of complaints to the journal and a mini internet storm. The apparently real, but small, benefits from acupuncture in pain control led to Nice approving acupuncture for headaches and back pain amid a chorus of grumbles from the sceptics. Colquhoun believes that, according to the usual standards of medicine, acupuncture doesn’t work. “Every paper on acupuncture seems to conclude that ‘more research is needed’,” he says. “If you can’t come to a clear decision after 3,000 trials then surely that tells you something. One thing is clear: there is little or no difference between sham and real acupuncture.” He believes the reported positive effects are so weak they may not even be the work of a placebo but a regression to the mean the phenomenon whereby patients get better on their own, but attribute their recovery to whatever treatment they have had. Does it matter? Surely if patients believe acupuncture works, that is good enough, given that the treatment is relatively cheap. “It matters for two reasons,” says Colquhoun.

Acupuncture can treat depression and anxiety sans drugs

It is best known as a treatment for controlling our aches and pains but few of us know that acupuncture can also be used to treat anxiety and depression. The research by the British Acupuncture Council and the charity Anxiety UK, revealed that only 10 percent of sufferers use acupuncture to deal with their anxiety, whereas almost half (49.2 per cent) are prescribed medication, the Daily Express reported. Almost all participants of the study (93.8 percent), commissioned to mark World Mental Health Day on Thursday, said they would be open to trying a complementary therapy but nearly two thirds (62.7 percent) were not even aware that acupuncture could help their condition. Anxiety UK believes this could be down to a lack of understanding of the condition, cost of treatments as well as problems accessing therapies, especially complementary therapies. Acupuncture originated in China and has been in use for more than 2,000 years and practitioners claim that by inserting tiny needles into specific areas of the skin, they can affect the meridians – or channels of pain – that run up and down the body, blocking pain. Previous research has shown that acupuncture can help ease anxiety by acting on areas of the brain known to reduce sensitivity to pain and stress, as well as promoting relaxation and deactivating the ‘analytical’ brain, which is responsible for anxiety and worry. The acupuncture practitioners questioned for the study said the most common form of anxiety they treat is depression (94.9 percent) closely followed by panic attacks (86.1 per cent) with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) not far behind (50.6 percent).

Tumwater Chiropractic Center Helps People Feel Better

tumwater chiropractor

Drs. Lonnie Lowe (left) and Kelly Golob focus on being patient centered at Tumwater Chiropractic Clinic. Some might be wary of visiting a chiropractor. The tell-tale popping sound can be disconcerting. There are lots of different ways to achieve the same results, says Golob. Low force techniques, cold laser, traction, kinesio taping and stretches are just some of the alternatives offered at TCC. Being patient centered is important to Lowe, Shaw and Golob. We walk through the process step-by-step so a patient is never surprised, says Lowe. A first visit includes a discussion of medical history and goals. During the exam we look and see how a patient is moving, what imbalances there are as far as joint range of motion maybe some muscles are too tight, maybe some are too weak, explains Golob. These initial screenings lead to a treatment plan that is tailor made for each patient. The long-term focus for Lowe, Shaw and Golob is getting a patient feeling better and then helping them stay that way. Golob uses the analogy of a dentist to help patients understand the benefits of preventative maintenance.

Richmond Chiropractor Urges Patients To Not Let Back Pain Ruin Their Day – WFSB 3 Connecticut

Scott Shaw and his team of chiropractic professionals. To begin, Dr. Shaw urges his patients to life properly. When it comes to lifting objects, it is important to follow guidelines for proper lifting techniques. While lifting, patients should: – Plan ahead what you want to do – Do not be in a hurry – Separate your feet shoulder-width apart to give yourself a solid base of support – Bend at the knees – Lift with your leg muscles as you stand up – Do not lift an object alone if it is too heavy In order to lift an object from the floor, such as a piece of paper, Richmond, VA chiropractor, Dr. Shaw, informs patients to lean over the object, slightly bend one knee and extend the other leg behind him or her. Patients should then hold on to a nearby chair or table for support as they reach down to pick up the light object. When it comes to lifting a heavy object, there are different techniques a person should use to do so. Whether it is a heavy box or laundry basket full of clothes, remember to get close to the object, bend at the knees, and lift with the leg muscles.

They were excited to have an American doctor there. That meant a lot to them. What were some of the more common conditions you dealt with? I would say probably bayview wellness 60 percent of patients were suffering from sciatica. I saw a lot of ankylosing spondylitis.

At least three patients a day had ankylosing spondylitis.

“Rather than temporarily numbing the brain’s ability to perceive pain, decompression therapy relieves the lumbar spine compression that triggers pain in the first place. Many patients find that after just a few treatments, they are able to once again enjoy the activities they love and engage in an active lifestyle.” Spinal decompression therapy uses a special adjustment table and computerized adjustments to relieve spinal compression. A gentle pumping action hydrates the discs and creates a vacuum that pulls the herniated or slipped disc back into place. Gentle movement nourishes the spine with nutrient-rich fluids, which supports the healing process. Treatment is gentle and relaxing; according to Dr. Batla, some patients even fall asleep during their treatment session. “Falling asleep during treatment is a true testament to just how relaxing spinal decompression therapy truly is,” said Dr. Batla. “Most treatment sessions last between 15 and 30 minutes.” According to the chiropractors, many seemingly unrelated health problems often arise from imbalances in the spinal column.

Chiropractic care may help infants sleep – News – JamaicaObserver.com

According to a 2010 press release from the Chiropractic Leadership Alliance detailing the results of the study, only 10 per cent of those infants had come to the chiropractor because of sleep disturbances – the majority of the children received chiropractic care for excessive crying and colic. Specific, gentle adjustments were applied to misaligned areas of the spine over the course of a few visits. The release explained that after the first visit, nearly 40 per cent of infants enjoyed a longer (and deeper) sleep. After seven visits, up to 60 per cent of the infants had showed such improvement. While infant sleep may be a complicated issue, it would appear that chiropractic care seems to help some children get a better night’s sleep. Chiropractic care for children is gentle, safe and effective. If your baby is having difficulty settling down before sleep, it might be worth a trip to your family chiropractor. And don’t worry if you are not an infant. In my 15 years of experience as a chiropractor, I can tell you first-hand that age is not a factor when it comes to the benefits and positive effects of the chiropractic adjustment.

The patient feels about the equivalent of a flashlight during treatment. The results are very fast. Treatment times are in the minutes. There are no side effects. And best of all patients get relief because their injured tissues are restored vs. chemically masking the pain with a drug.” Finally Doctor Digles said, “In our office we offer you the latest of this technology as well as over a decade of clinical experience.

Though Therapeutic Cold Laser has been around for decades, in the past, this type of treatment was most commonly used by professional and elite athletes by a small percentage of the health care community.
