Wonderful News for Chiropractic…and Neck and Back Pain Patients!
New research shares that the more chiropractic care is available, the less PCP (primary care physician) services are used for back pain and neck pain in older adults! (1) That is music to your New York chiropractor’s ears! Back pain and neck pain is the specialty here at Dr. Gary Stefanick! We appreciate your bringing your back pain and neck pain to the practice and directing that of your friends and family to our New York chiropractic care practice as well.
Benefits of Post-Spine Surgery Exercise
Not a surprise to Dr. Gary Stefanick and fellow chiropractic colleagues, but researchers report that a 12 week exercise program that starts immediately after spine surgery microdiscectomy for lumbar disc improves issues with pain, disability and spinal function. (2)
Absolutely! Let your New York chiropractor help guide you as needed.
Whiplash Patients and Fatty Neck Muscles
Fat takes over neck muscles in patients with whiplash associated disorders. (3)
No one wants fatty neck muscles, so plan to do some neck exercises to strengthen those muscles. Gentle, simple neck exercises
can do the trick. Dr. Gary Stefanick has just the ones for you to try after we talk.
Well, lifting, bending and prolonged sitting are among the top five most important triggers for low back pain say patients and their caregivers. Lifting is the #1 trigger according to both! (4)
That’s not a surprise. Your New York chiropractor encourages you to limit these motions and/or at least learn how to bend, lift and twist properly. Dr. Gary Stefanick is happy to share more specifics!
Vitamin C for Bone!
Vitamin C has a positive effect on bone formation. (5)
So enjoy some fruits and veggies and even supplementation to keep up your vitamin C levels. Of course, chat with your New York at your next chiropractic appointment about spinal nutrition
and your vitamin C level and intake.
Dr. Gary Stefanick wishes you a happy holiday season with family and friends!
Your trust in our New York chiropractic care is most appreciated!
See you in 2016!
