Improve Your Sleep With Chiropractic Care

Improve Your Sleep With Chiropractic Care

A majority of people understand that a chiropractor can assist with musculoskeletal problems, such as headaches, neck pain, and backaches, but many people do not recognize that chiropractic care can do much more. Chiropractic can even enhance the quality of your sleeping patterns.

Receiving plenty of quality sleep every night is beneficial to your health and well-being. By having inadequate sleep can increase your chance of developing diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and other serious health conditions. Also, stress can prevent you from falling asleep or sleeping well. Stress can trigger uncomfortable muscle tension that interrupts your sleep. Muscle tension is an indicator that you are under too much pressure to sleep.

Chiropractic adjustments not only will make sure to keep your spine subluxation free, but we can recommend soothing exercises, stretches and relaxation techniques to assist you to relax tensed muscles and calm your stressed-out mind.

Technology Can be a Real Pain in the Neck

Technology Can be a Real Pain in the Neck

Do you find yourself at a computer, using an iPhone, or Tablet quite often?

These days, tablets, smartphones, and handheld devices are constantly around us, and it is very popular for everyone of all ages to spend hours on these devices every single day. Typically, supporting the weight of your head is no major issue for your neck and shoulders. However prolonged screen time comes at a price, and some people refer to it as “tech neck”. If you sit incorrectly on a non-ergonomic chair as your head bends down while you type an email, the strain on your neck can more exponential. The human head weighs an average of approximately 10 to 12 pounds. For every inch when you bend your head forward, 10 pounds of unnecessary pressure is placed upon the neck and upper back.  This results in muscles being fatigued, sore, and inflamed. Thus, inflammation can eventually result in fibrosis, leading to chronic neck pain.

It’s quite widespread for individuals to devote long periods of time at a computer or sitting at their desk to feel some degree of pain in the muscles of their upper back, neck, and shoulders. Children and teenagers may not have similar type of work to carry out, but that does not indicate that they are protected from the strain and tension which can result from utilizing the devices frequently. Tech neck affects everyone of all ages.

Tech neck is one of the most frequent effects of passing time with the head and neck flexed too far forward. This interrupts the natural neck curvature and surrounding muscles which are required to support the head. It places a significant stress on those muscles, and can essentially initiate these signs and symptoms:

  1. Neck pain
  2. Numbness and tingling into the arms, hands, and fingers
  3. Discomfort and tension between the shoulder blades
  4. Muscular spasms in the neck
  5. Blurred vision
  6. Stiffness and tightness radiating from the neck into the shoulders

If you are experiencing any of these conditions, call Fogarty Chiropractic Life Clinic today to schedule your appointment at (321) 636-5200.

Have you been injured on the job? Does it seem as though you’re not getting any better?

Are you “pushing” yourself to work around your pain? Don’t just get by, get well with chiropractic! If you, or someone you know has been hurt on the job, chiropractic can help.

No matter what your occupation – from a day-care worker to a construction worker- you can benefit from a program of chiropractic care. The source of your injury can be evaluated and treated, not just treating your symptoms. You’ve felt them. A tingling here and there. An ache or pain. A stiff neck, headache, and sore wrists. Those little annoyances, if ignored, can quickly develop into painful, chronic injuries.

Most injuries that involve the muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves, discs, vertebrae, and other joints that respond well to chiropractic care.

It’s mainly due to in part that your spine is the central axis of your musculoskeletal system. Even a sprained ankle or knee injury can throw your spine or pelvic bones out of alignment. By keeping your spine aligned, gentle chiropractic adjustments can remove nerve interference, restore joint function, and reduce inflammation to speed your healing.

Back injury ranks second only to the common cold as a leading cause of worker absenteeism. 75% of all people who work with computers suffer from some type of injury. The only statistic that matters to us is you and your symptoms. Let us show you how chiropractic can get you back to work and feeling great again.

Chiropractic Helps More Than Just Back Pain

Chiropractic Helps More Than Just Back Pain

You have an incredible healing ability protecting you all the time.

It has many levels: your skin and the mucous membranes in your nose and throat create a physical barrier to invasion, digestive juices dissolve germs, urine cleans your urinary tract and skin secretions kill many germs when you’re alive (that’s why cadavers turn colors). Other defenses include fever to “burn off” infections, swelling to bring healing to injured areas and specialized cells that attack and devour intruders. Your immune system works around the clock in attempt to keep you near 100%.

Chiropractic is a powerful immune system “wake-up call”.

Doctors of Chiropractic analyze your structural system to locate subluxations, a serious condition that causes spine and nerve stress which impairs your immune function.  In a recent study, it was found that the three most common reasons for visiting a chiropractor were ear, nose, and throat/respiratory disorders followed by musculoskeletal disorders and gastrointestinal disorders. In the study, 74 patients reported improvements unrelated to their presenting complaints such as improved sleep, improved immune function, and improved mood.

Your immune system will function closer to its optimum level so you may fight disease, prevent illness and function at your best!

Chiropractic Can Enhance Your Sports Game

Chiropractic Can Enhance Your Sports Game

Why is chiropractic so popular among athletes?

The two top reasons:

1. Chiropractic helps improve and enhance athletic performance and

2. Chiropractic helps keep athletes on the field and may prevent minor injuries from becoming major ones.

Chiropractic care is used widely through all professional sports such as football, soccer, swimming, track & field, and more.

However, let us not forget the millions of people who regularly perform aerobic workouts. Exercise workouts are much more effective when the spine is balanced. “Getting in shape” should always include the “shaping” of the spinal column by a chiropractor.

You don’t have to be an Olympiad, a professional athlete or a “serious” athlete to benefit from chiropractic care. Americans suffer from millions of sports-related injuries each  year and everyone with such an injury needs regular chiropractic spinal checkups.

Call us at Fogarty Chiropractic Life Clinic to schedule your appointment today at (321) 636-5200 so you can perform at your best!

Can Chiropractic Help with Your Headache?

Can Chiropractic Help with Your Headache?

For over a century, chiropractic’s natural, drug free approach to health has been a blessing to individuals having migraines and headaches.

Chiropractors are the only healthcare professionals trained to analyze and correct subluxations which are tiny distortions in your spine and structural system that affect your nerves, joints, discs, and internal organs, including your brain. This common condition can weaken your body, cause fatigue and pain, lower vitality and set the stage for sickness and disease. By correcting subluxations your body can better restore itself to a greater level of health and wholeness – to better heal itself.

The treatment for a headache depends, of course, on what has presumably caused it.

A headache arising from visual problems can often be cured by eyeglasses. An infection headache of the sinuses or ears is relieved when the infection subsides. But the most common headaches are usually treated with painkillers. This does not get to the cause of the problem but addresses only the symptoms. Of course, to someone experiencing intense pain, symptom relief is no small thing. However, the hundreds of millions of dollars spent each year on everything from aspirin and aspirin substitutes to codeine and prescription drugs provide relief from headaches but do not correct the cause or prevent recurrence.

Anyone suffering from headaches of any type would do well to see their chiropractor to ensure that they are free of subluxations.

If there are subluxations in the body, no amount of drugs will correct them – a chiropractic adjustment is essential. Call us at Fogarty Chiropractic Life Clinic at (321) 636-5200 to schedule your appointment today to rid of your headaches. Don’t wait until it worsens!

The Chiropractic Approach

The Chiropractic Approach

Think of the brain being the master computer of the body.

The spinal cord, an extension of the brain, carries signals from the brain to the rest of the body via 31 pairs of spinal nerves that exit the cord through openings between the vertebrae. If a vertebra is out of alignment, the communication between the brain cells and tissue cells are interfered with. The breakdown in communication results in a malfunction of the body. Our job as chiropractors is to simply remove those interferences or subluxations that suppress our body to function how it was innately designed to do.

Chiropractors have helped millions of people with neck and low back problems, often saving them from pain, disability, drugs, and surgery.

The chiropractor’s purpose is to gently and painlessly rebalance and realign your spine and structural system to relieve pressure on your nerves, discs, and muscles. Here at Fogarty Chiropractic Life Clinic, we are specially trained to locate and free your body from a severe abnormality that interferes with your proper function. It is called a subluxation, which can be a slight to severe misalignment of your structural system, including your spine. Once we apply specific chiropractic adjustments to free you of subluxations, your body and mind function better.
