New Year’s Resolution

Dear Friends,

It has been two weeks since New Year’s Day.  Have the changes you set out to make stuck?  Sometimes we need to make it simple.

For me, I made a resolution to read something positive or in my field at least 10 minutes a day (something that either helps me be a better person or a better doctor),  and then to journal three positive or good things that happened throughout the day.  I find that I’m more mindful, peaceful, and get more done with a little journaling.

If your resolution included something like to get healthier or start an exercise program, the little steps may be to start, such as walking 15 minutes a day or do a little food prep on Sundays, so you can eat meals at home for the week.

And if its been a while since you’ve been in for a tune-up, give our office a call and we will help you start of the New Year right with a spine and nervous system that’s in alignment with your goals.

See you soon,

Dr. Teri

October News

October is my favorite month!
Hi Friends!
I love October, Fall and Halloween.  We are starting off the month of October with “Mind Your Head.” A reminder that all athletes need a pre-concussion baseline test to later determine if a concussion has occurred and to help assess treatment and severity.  Our FDA approved testing process will help to compare pre-season to post-season trauma.
Call the office to schedule you or your kids test today.

Just a heads up…the office will be closed October 12-17. Please make your appointments accordingly.

This coming up Saturday, October 7th, still has some massage and adjustment openings left.  They go fast though, so if you want one give us a call.  We also have massage therapy available Monday-Thursday from 3-6.

Costume contest and Trick-o-Treat/Open House on Saturday, October 28th from 9-11 A.M.  We will have coffee and snacks for all the Ghouls and Ghosts in your family.

Lastly, what are you reading?  My current read is “High Performance Habits, How Extraordinary People Become that Way,” by Brendon Burchard.  I just started it last weekend, so I am holding off on voicing an opinion until I get a little further into it.

Happy Monday!  See you soon.

Dr. Teri Wisner

Women and Concussions

As many of you know, I have become obsessed with the neurology and anatomy of what happens when someone has a concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI) and the best ways to regain balance and function. ESPN magazine has a great article on the differences between male and female athlete’s symptoms and healing following a trauma to the head. Here’s the link: http://www.espn.com/espnw/sports/article/19775123/why-does-seem-cares-female-concussions.

Want  to learn more about head trauma and how to protect athletes from further injury???  Join us at the next Concussion Roulette Workshop-August 2nd at 6:30 PM.  RSVP at 714-779-2318.

How Does Chiropractic Work?

Many people seek chiropractic care when their back goes out or their neck tightens up. But how does this form of care actually work? What are the benefits of receiving chiropractic care for nerve dysfunction compared with other healthcare options? Let’s take a look!

First, let’s discuss how the nervous system “works.” We have three divisions of the nervous system: the central, peripheral, and autonomic nervous systems. The central nervous system (CNS) includes the brain and spinal cord, and it’s essentially the main processing portion of the nervous system. The spinal cord is like a multi-lane highway that brings information to the brain for processing (sensory division) and returns information back to the toes, feet, legs, and upper extremities from which the information originated (motor division). For example, hiking on a mountain trail or simply walking requires constant input to and from the CNS so we can adjust our balance accordingly and not fall. These “sensory-motor pathways” are essential and allow us to complete our daily tasks in an efficient, safe manner as information is constantly bouncing back and forth between the brain and the rest of the body.

The peripheral nervous system (PNS) includes a similar sensory/motor “two-way street” system relaying information back and forth from our toes/feet/legs and fingers/hands/arms to the spinal cord (CNS). And if this isn’t complicated enough, we also have “reflexes” that, for example, allow us to QUICKLY pull our hand away from a hot stove to minimize burning our fingers.

Reflexes allow the information to “skip” the brain’s processing part so quicker reactions can occur. The autonomic nervous system (ANS) includes the sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions that basically “run” our automatic (organ) functions like breathing, heart rate, digestion, hormonal output, and more. There is constant communication between the ANS, PNS, and CNS that allow us to function in a normal, balanced way… unless something disrupts them.

There are obvious conditions that interfere with this communication process that include (but are not limited to) diabetes (with neuropathy), frost bitten or burned fingers, peripheral nerve damage from conditions like carpal/cubital tunnel syndromes, thoracic outlet syndrome, and/or pinched nerves in the neck, mid-back, low-back spinal regions, as well as conditions such as multiple sclerosis (MS), Guillain-Barre Syndrome, after a stroke (spinal cord or brain), and after trauma with resulting fractures where nerve, spinal cord, and/or brain damage can occur. These are “obvious” reasons for delayed or blocked neurotransmission.

There are many other less obvious injuries or conditions that can result in faulty neuromotor patterns and nerve transmission of which chiropractic services can benefit. The “subluxation complex” is a term some chiropractors use to describe the compromised nerve transmission that may occur if a nerve is compressed or irritated due to faulty bone or joint position along the nerve’s course. Reducing such nerve compression typically allows for a restoration of function. A good illustration of this is a patient who suffers from a herniated disk in the neck with numbness and tingling down the arm to the hand. The goal of treatment (for all healthcare professionals) is to remove the pinch of the nerve.

To realize this goal, doctors of chiropractic utilize spinal manipulation and mobilization in addition to other non-surgical, non-drug approaches that may include exercises, nutritional advice, home-care such as a cervical traction unit, and other anti-inflammatory measures (ice, modalities like low level and class IV laser, electric stimulation, pulsed magnetic field, and more). Given the minimal side-effect risks and well-reported benefits, it only makes sense to try chiropractic FIRST and if you’re not satisfied, your doctor will help you find the next level of care.
