Orem Bed Wetting Solutions

Many people put chiropractors and chiropractic treatment in the back and neck pain box. Another condition that I’m actually really good at is Orem bed wetting solutions.orem bed wetting solutions

Having read that you may be thinking, how does a chiropractor who works with backs, necks, bones and muscles help someone who has a bed wetting problem?

To answer that let me tell you about an article I read today.
It’s titled Children with nocturnal enuresis have posture and balance disorders.

What they found was that kids who were bed wetters showed forward tilt of the pelvis and had worse balance compared with kids who were not bed wetters.

So what that means is that kids who have posture and balance problems are more likely to have a bed wetting problem.

So the next question to answer is, does correcting posture and balance problems lead to improvements in bed wetting?

YES!

Posture imbalances affect balance, the cerebellum, the vestibular system and other areas of the brain such that brain’s ability to control the bladder is reduced.

So by correcting posture and balance problems the brain’s ability to control when the bladder empties is improved and bed wetting goes away.

Orem Neck Pain Relief – R. Ned McArthur, D.C.

Today I read an article about the use of NSAID’s (Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs) and Orem neck pain relief.

orem chiropractor neck adjustments spineIn this article the researchers looked at the effectiveness of NSAID’s for spinal pain.

Non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs, which include ibuprofen, acetaminophen, naproxen and the like.

After scouring all the available research where non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs were used to treat neck pain (there were thirty five such articles) they found that indeed, non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs did help with neck pain.

The significant finding was that these drugs do indeed help with neck pain, but not any more than a placebo.

What’s a placebo? A placebo is a fake treatment, or in this case a fake medication, often times a sugar or water pill. A placebo is something that should have no clinical affect on a condition.

For a treatment to be considered effective, at a minimum, it must do better than a placebo. Treatments are measured against placebos because even placebos can produce positive results.

Placebos produce results because the person taking them doesn’t know that it’s fake and believes that the treatment will work. The person’s own belief produces a result.

So the conclusion is that non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs work no better than a sugar pill for neck pain.

Another significant thing about this finding is that non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs have several negative consequences, when taken over an extended time.

So they don’t work any better than a sugar pill and taken long enough they can damage your stomach, liver and kidneys. Not to mention that when taken after muscle or ligament injuries they tend to slow healing time and result in weaker tissues.

Instead of not steroidal ant inflammatory drugs try chiropractic which gets you back in action faster and with less side effects than drugs.

Orem Chiropractic Reveals How To Avoid Getting Sick

It’s early February and the cold and flu are running rampant. Maybe you’ve already had this year? Either way, Orem chiropractic reveals how to avoid getting sick. Orem Chiropractic Reveals How To Avoid Getting Sick

Here’s what we know for sure: Over the last one hundred years people are sleeping one and a half to two hours less than our predecessors. We also know that thirty three percent of the working force is sleeping less than six hours a night.

If this sounds like you, you probably already know that this lack of sleep is terrible for your health. You may have even noticed that you get sick more often when you’re not sleeping.

Researchers wanted to know why this happens. So they took eleven pair of identical twins with different sleep patterns. What they found in every case was the twin with a shorter sleep cycle had a depressed immune system.

We all have heard that the magic number is eight hours of sleep a night. Researchers found that for the best immune function one needed at least seven hours of sleep.

This study was unique in that it used identical twins to control for genetic affects on sleep and it was discovered that our genetics account for somewhere between 31 and 55 percent of our sleep duration. Our sleep behavior and environment make up the remainder.

What this means is that you have a greater influence on how much sleep you get than you probably think.

There was another interesting aspect to this study. They took the twin that was sleeping less and gave them a vaccine to a certain virus and then exposed them to the virus. They still got the virus more often than the twin getting more sleep.

Protect yourself again cold, flu’s and all kinds of other sickness by getting enough sleep tonight and every night.

Orem Migraine Specialist Shares Amazingly Simple Way To Reduce Pain

You can feel it building. Some people say it’s pressure that builds and Orem headaches migraine reliefbuilds. You know that feeling of the headache you know is coming. In this post Orem migraine specialist shares amazingly simple way to reduce your pain.

Many people start to feel stressed and worried when the first begin to feel the building headache. This stress creates plenty of problems in it’s own right.

Either consciously or unconsciously your breathing now starts to change.

Recently researchers have recently discovered how we breathe determines the affect of stress on our brains and thus how our body deals with pain.

They found that in areas of the brain where emotions, memory and smells are processed, fluctuated with breathing.

So next researchers set up monitors to monitor breathing and presented to the participants faces of fear or faces of surprise.

When presented with a fearful face, participants were able to more quickly identify which face it was while they were taking a breath in through their nose as compared to when breathing out through their nose.

The same result was not produced when participants were show a surprised face.

Interestingly enough, they could not be produced when breathing through the mouth.

A similar test on memory produce similar results, when comparing breathing in verses breathing out and breathing through the nose and breathing through the mouth.

One of the major findings in this study is that there is a dramatic difference in brain activity in the amygdala and hippocampus during inhalation compared with exhalation,” said lead author Christina Zelano, assistant professor of neurology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. “When you breathe in, we discovered you are stimulating neurons in the olfactory cortex, amygdala and hippocampus, all across the limbic system.”

Think of the limbic system as the part of the brain that controls emotions and our body’s response to emotions.

So here’s the take home lesson:
1. Pain produces similar affects in the brain as fear and stress.
2. How we breathe during pain affects different areas of the brain differently.
3. During inhalation, or breathing in, the emotional parts of our brain tend to function better.

So when you start to feel that pain coming on breathe through your nose, focusing on the in breaths and your body’s emotional response will be much better, helping you reduce pain.

Orem Chiropractor At 212 Degrees

What is Orem Chiropractor at 212 degrees?

Here it is:

At 211º water is hot.

At 212º, it boils.

With boiling water, comes steam.  Steam can power a locomotive.

The one extra degree makes all the difference. This simple analogy reflects the ultimate definition of excellence. Because it’s the one extra degree of effort, in business and life, that can separate the good from the great.

In golf, the average margin of victory for the last twenty five years in all major tournaments combined was less than three strokes

The margin for victory between an Olympic Gold Medal and no medal at all is extremely small.

In the 2004 mens 800 meter race (half mile) the margin of victory was less than one second – .71 seconds to be exact.

At the Indianapolis 500 the average margin of victory for the past ten years has been 1.54 seconds.

It’s your life.

You are responsible for the results.

So the next time you’re feeling down and disappointed with your life remember to . . .

TURN UP THE HEAT – BY ONE DEGREE

To get what you’ve never had, you must do what you’ve never done.

The only thing that stands between where you are now and where you want to be is your attitude and your willingness to put forth effort and try.

Are your circumstances especially challenging? Probably.

In the world today we spend a lot of effort trying to make life equal and fair for everybody.

In that process though, I think we’ve forgotten that what made this country great. It has been the  countless number of men and women who overcame their terrible circumstances.

Think of your favorite books and movies. At least one of them is the story of someone overcoming some great thing.

Many have been dealt a terrible hand in the card game of life and instead of bemoaning their circumstances went out and did something to change their life.

Difficult circumstances are the prerequisite to a great life of accomplishment and meaning.

Live at 212 degrees.

Orem DIY Back Pain Relief

Today I’ve got a great post on Orem DYI back pain relief.

This post is based on an article I read entitled, Mindfulness Practices Relieve Lower Back PainDIY-LOW-BACK-PAIN RELIEF

Here’s the text of the article:

“Up to 80 percent of adults suffer from debilitating lower back pain at some time in their lives. While most low back pain is short-lived, it can become chronic for some people.

Standard treatments include rest, medication, hot and cold compresses, massage, chiropractic and osteopathic treatments, acupuncture, stretching, biofeedback, steroid injections and electrical nerve stimulation. Some patients find that buying a new mattress results in significant improvement. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can also help if it includes training in deep breathing techniques and changing the way you think about pain.

Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) practices like yoga and meditation have also been found to improve chronic lower back pain and its physical limitations and can provide patients with ongoing pain management skills, according to researchers at the University of Washington and Group Health Research Institute in Seattle. Their research, published in a March 2016 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, shows that patients who used either CBT or MBSR techniques reported greater improvements after about 6 ½ months than patients who used other forms of standard care.

Want to improve your back pain on your own? Begin meditating.
Not only will it help your back pain it will help clear all the clutter from your mind.

Orem Chiropractic Care For Kids

Do kids need Orem Chiropractic?  Is there research that support chiropractic care for kids? How do you know if your child needs chiropractic care?orem chiropractic for kids

I won’t answer that question directly, but I will provide you with information that will allow you to make informed health care choices for your family.

A Scottish medical doctor names Francis Smith performed MRI studies on the spines of 154 ten year old kids.

He was looking for kids with spinal stenosis to identify correlating factors.

He was NOT looking for degenerative changes in the spines of the kids.

As you can guess he found that 14 of the 154 kids or 9% of the ten year old kids had spinal degeneration and no symptoms. 

Combine that with a study published in 2015 showing that 37% of 20 year-olds had spinal degeneration and no symptoms.

Why were all these young people a breeding ground for spinal degeneration?

Another study from 2004 evaluated what happens when segments of vertebrae were purposely prevented from moving normally.  In this study they found areas of the spine that were prevented form moving developed degeneration much quicker.

Increased screen time, whether it be computer screens, TV screens or mobile device screens, results in this same phenomenon where segments of the spine don’t move the way they should and degeneration results.

We also know that chiropractic care can fix and prevent this situation from happening and will result in increased motion, improved posture which prevent degeneration of the spine.

Do It Yourself Orem Migraine Relief

If you need Orem migraine relief or if you’re suffering with pounding Orem headaches migraine reliefin your head, I’ve got a highly effective solution for you and that you can do all on your own.

If you’ve read any of the previous posts on headaches and migraines then you know the basics of how and why headaches and migraines occur.

If not here’s a quick summary: Blood vessels in the brain dialate  or get bigger. They can do this for many reasons, but the end result is when blood vessels get bigger they stretch a web of nerves that surround the vessel, which is what causes the pain.

One of the reasons blood vessels get bigger is in response to inflammation.

Inflammation occurs when there is injury or damage to tissues.
Think of getting a splinter in your finger. If you leave the splinter in long enough your finger will get puffed up and turn red. That’s inflammation. It’s your immune system rushing to the area to fight any virus or bacteria that have gotten in. In our splinter example we want that to happen, it protects us.

Now imagine poking your self in the same spot over and over again.
The inflammation would never go down. Well, that’s what happens when you eat inflammatory foods, don’t get enough sleep or have emotional stresses. These things “stab” the lining of your intestines the same way a splinter stabs your finger.

Imagine that swelling and redness of your finger – that’s what’s happening in your intestines, multiple times a day, every day for years on end.

This is chronic inflammation.

Chronic inflammation is what leads to chronic diseases, including migraine headaches.

So, what can you do on your own to help this inflammatory process?

Chew on fresh ginger. The phytonutrients in ginger are called gingerols and have powerful anti inflammatory properties.

So, next time you feel a migraine headache coming on chew on some fresh ginger. Nibble a little at a time because it is quite spicy.
