Whiplash Symptom Diagnosis in Orem Utah

Whiplash symptom diagnosis is a simple but at the same time very complicated issue.

This post is based on an article found on WebMD.

Simple because all it requires is a history of being involved in a car orem utah car accident chiropractor whiplash neck painaccident and a joint, muscle or nerve related symptom after that accident.

The complicated part is that there isn’t a test for whiplash. You can’t see whiplash on an x-ray or MRI. There isn’t a blood test that tells you, “you’ve got whiplash.”

For the medical community, this can be a difficult thing. Historically, they want to name health problems. The thinking is, if you have 123 then we know we need to apply treatment ABC.

This is why I believe, chiropractors have been so successful in the management and treatment of whiplash and car accident injuries.

In my office when I see a person who has been involved in car accident, I’m not looking to figure out “what the person has”.

I take a functional approach. What’s not working the way it’s supposed to? Can it produce the symptoms this person is experiencing? If so, we know the cause of the problem and how to get it back to normal, but there’s not a name for that.

Orem Whiplash Symptom Specialist

Orem Whiplash symptoms from a car accident can range from annoying to debilitating.

Whiplash Symptoms Orem Auto Accident
Chiropractic Helps Auto Accident Injuries

This post is based on an article on whiplash from WebMD

The symptoms after being involved in an auto accident can include headaches, neck and back pain, shoulder pain, numbness, tingling, sore and tight muscles and dizziness.

In whiplash, there is injury to muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, and nerves.

Whether your car was moving slow, fast or not at all, injury results from the sudden whipping of the body as the collision takes place.

Often people assume that it’s only the “big accidents” that cause injury. And it’s true that big accidents often result in big injuries.
Unfortunately, the opposite is not true. Small accidents can be some of the most painful accidents.

The following is a whiplash checklist. If you’ve been involved in auto accident and have any of the following call 801-225-1311 so you can experience the relief you deserve.

1. Do you or did you experiencing any kind of pain since the accident?
2. Do you or did you feel brain fog or that you’re separate from your body.
3. Do you or did you feel any tightness or restrictions when you move your head, neck, shoulders, arms, back or legs?
4. Do you or did you feel sore or tender when touching your neck, shoulders or back?
5. Do you or did you feel dizziness, nausea, or lightheadedness?
6. Do you or did you feel any other unexplained symptom?

Orem Numbness Specialist – Does This Make Me Look Fat?

Orem Numbness Specialist asks, “Does This Make Me Look Fat?”

Hi, this is Dr. Ned McArthur.  This is number 5 in a series inspired by a 2012 Prevention Magazine article entitled seven
weird ways your posture affects your health and happiness.

Today’s topic: Bad posture makes you look fat.

Ok, this is really cool. I’m going to show you how to look ten pounds lighter in less than ten seconds. That’s more than a pound a second! Are you up for the challenge? Great!

So here’s what you gotta do. Stand up straight.

Wait, what?

You heard that right, stand up straight and you’ll lose ten pounds from your appearance, especially if you’ve got a fair amount of belly fat.

Try it for yourself. Stand sideways in front of a full-length mirror. Now slouch over. Really emphasize this if you want. What happens when you do that? Your belly pops out more and all the tissue under your chin and around your neck pops out too. If you can have someone take a picture.

Now stand up straight. Stand with your hips above your ankles, your shoulders above your hips and your ear above your shoulder. An easy way to do this is to imagine a string attached to the top of your head and that string being pulled upward. As you imagine the string being pulled up upward your body is lengthening and becoming more vertical.

What happens to your belly and neck? They get longer and trimmer looking.

Not only that but how do you look feel overall?

I’m sure you look and feel more confident. Looking and feeling more confident will lead to success in whatever you do.

What have you noticed? Let me know in the comments.

Orem Headache Specialist – How Scary Is Your Posture?

Hi this is Dr Ned, Orem Headache Specialist.

This is number 4 in a series inspired by a 2012 Prevention Magazine article entitled seven weird ways your posture affects your health and happiness.

Today’s topic: Bad posture as a contributor to disease and maybe even death.

This is not a video about how you’re going to die because you’ve got bad posture.

It’s not about how a chiropractor is your only chance of survival with this deadly disease.

Unfortunately, there those who use scare tactics to convince people that they need a particular treatment, but that is a discussion for another time.What this video is about is pointing out how in our health one thing leads to another. For

What this video is about is pointing out how in our health one thing leads to another. For example, if you eat and drink junk food every day there will come a time when you start to put on weight. And putting on weight is not the only negative consequence. It will affect your sleep, your energy levels, and even your attitude. Here’s why. Everything in human function depends on everything else.

Posture affects and moderates every physiological function from breathing to normal hormonal production. Homeostasis and autonomic regulation are intimately connected with posture.

An Australian study found that after the age of 25, every single hour of television—i.e., slouching on the couch—reduced the viewer’s life expectancy by 21.8 minutes. Plus, when English researchers cross-referenced sitting time with health outcomes in a different study, they found that those people who sat the most more than doubled their risk of developing diabetes and had a 147 % increase in their risk for cardiovascular disease, even if they exercised.

It has also been found that head forward posture affects blood pressure. How can that be? It happens because the same part of our brainstem that affects posture also affects many of the automatic functions in our body like breathing, digestion, and even blood pressure.

What have you noticed? Let me know in the comments.

Thanks.

Best Orem Chiropractor Discusses Tech Neck In Teenagers

In this post, the best Orem chiropractor discusses tech neck in teenagers. best orem chiropractor tech neck

The average teenager spends five thousand hours on their mobile device annually.

Unfortunately, points are not the only thing that they lose being hunched over the screen.

We call this Tech Neck. Looking down at a screen can put as much as sixty pounds of pressure on the neck and shoulders.

Want to give that a dose of reality? Get a shoulder strap from a bag or piece of luggage and loop four milk jugs full of water through each end. Now pick that up by putting the strap around the back of your neck. That’s what your teens are doing to themselves everytime they stare down at a screen.

Done long enough you turn off your ability to hold your head up so the slumped head and shoulders become the new normal and sitting up straight isn’t going to bring back your ability to do it right.

The problem isn’t only back, neck and shoulder pain. Researchers have discovered other problems associated with head forward posture like restricted breathing, dizziness and balance disorders, constipation, headaches, obstructive sleep apnea, numbness and early onset decay and degeneration of the spine.

So the next time you’re on a mobile device hold it in front of your face so you can keep your chin up and your shoulders back and down.

How much time do you spend on a hand held device looking down? Let me know in the comments.

Orem Chiropractor – Posture & Pooping

How Poor Posture Makes You Constipated
Orem Chiropractor – R. Ned McArthur, D.C.

This is number 3 in a series of posts inspired by a 2012 Prevention Magazine article entitled seven weird ways your posture affects your health and happiness.

Today’s topic: Bad posture as a cause of constipation

In days past poor posture was a sign that you lacked manners, education, and respectability.

Today, poor posture is a sign that you have a smartphone, a computer, and constipation.  Many people sit all day long and for large portions of the day are looking at some kind of screen.

If this sounds like you, you know that living and working like this leads to many kinds of pain and soreness. It also leads to being overly stimulated and overly stressed.

Then add the physical pressure put on your intestines from sitting slumped over and the next time you feel like you gotta go you discover that you can’t go.

The good news is you can do something about it. Turn off the phone, move around and correct your posture.

Correcting your posture will help you look better, feel better and poop better.

Orem Chiropractor How Poor Posture Affects Work Performance

Hi this is Dr. Ned McArthur

This is number 2 in a series of videos inspired by a 2012 Prevention Magazine article entitled seven weird ways your posture affects your health and happiness.

Today’s topic: Bad posture causes problems in your job.

We’ve talked about how poor posture leads to various kinds of pain like neck and back pain, headaches, shoulder pain but poor posture can lead to other things that you wouldn’t associate with posture like depression, dizziness, fibromyalgia, numbness, and sciatica.

Unfortunately, bad posture doesn’t just result in pain. It will also affect how people see you. Someone who is slouched and always bent over is unconsciously seen as unimportant.

What happens to unimportant things in the workplace? If you’re seen as unimportant your likely not to keep your job for very long or at best it will be much more difficult to advance.

Posture is a small thing that will lead to a much better life.

Improving your posture will help you get the job you’ve always wanted and live the life of your dreams.

What have you noticed in your workplace in regards to people with poor posture? Let me know in the comments.Thanks for watching.

Depression and Bad Posture from Orem Chiropractor

Today I’m starting a series of videos inspired by a 2012 Prevention Magazine article entitled 7 weird ways your posture affects your health and happiness.

Today’s topic: Bad posture as a contributor to depression.

We can all picture the kind of head down, slumped and timid posture a depressed person can exhibit. In this case emotion leads to a certain posture and body position.

The question we’re now asking is can our posture and body position lead to the emotion, and more importantly can changing the body posture change the emotion.

One study found that people who experienced bipolar disorder showed posture and balance signs prior to their bi polar symptoms.

I am not saying that bad posture leads to depression or bi polar disorder. What I am saying is that poor posture and balance are some of the early signs of those dreadful conditions.

In a study from San Francisco State University, students were told to either walk down a hall in a slouched position or to skip. The slouchers reported increased feelings of depression and lower energy than skippers.

Feeling blue? Feeling down in the dumps? Do you want to change the way you’re feeling? Change your posture. Stand up straight, put your hands on your hips, do a fist pump, smile, skip or any other movements that are associated with happiness and confidence.

Try these out and tell me what you think.
