Summer Cold Care From Your Chiropractic Specialist: Charleston, SC

Let’s face it, there’s cold and flu season and then there’s the rest of the calendar year which means you could get sick with a cold or flu virus. While winter season is more commonly the time of year when colds or other viruses are passed around, the truth is, you could get a virus anytime of the year.

So, how can you get some relief?

Warm Up Some Soup. Whether it be chicken noodle soup, vegetable or something in between-you’ll find that a warm broth can help thin mucous, relieve sinus pain and sooth a sore throat. If you are battling chest congestion or a cough you may find that a warm cup of tea can help give you relief. Edible lavender with honey has been known to stop the spasmodic coughing that often accompanies colds.

Rest. Not getting enough sleep may be a factor that contributed to your illness in the first place. While there is no quick fix for a virus, getting sleep is a good place to start to regain energy, boost immunity and replenish what may be deficient in your system.

Warm Shower. Like warm soup, a warm shower can produce enough steam to help loosen chest congestion and relieve sinus pressure. And sometimes a warm shower can make you feel a little more like yourself again. Cleaning off the grime illness can leave on your body, mind and spirit can help you feel better in a matter of minutes.

Finally, continue regular appointments with your chiropractic specialist. Chiropractors visits are not only good for pain relief related to neck and back pain but also for preventative care. You’ll find that routine appointments can help improve your immunity and keep you functioning optimally not only during flu season but all year around.

Due to Kickbacks, Risky Back Surgeries are on the Rise

Today I came upon a post by Dr. Graeme Gibson, Seattle Chiropractor that discusses an article he read on yahoo about orthopedic doctors receiving kickbacks for surgical procedures.  I took interest to this because this is not surprising at all, as medical doctors and pharmaceutical companies have been known for years for this kickback disgrace.

Many medications and now surgeries that people are receiving are unnecessary and put patients at risk.  Unfortunately most patients trust their doctors that what is being prescribed is in their best interest.  But when one knows the statistics of back surgeries having less than a 50% success rate and a high risk or paralysis, why are these procedures being done before conservative care in many instances?

Most outcomes of surgery, even if get pain relief, the patient is then extremely limited in their daily activities.  In most instances a surgery is considered a success if it provides pain relief, which most of the time lasts only 1 to 5 years, and then further surgical procedures are required.

Yes, medications and surgery are needed at times, but not at the rate they are being recommended.  It’s always important that a patient gets a second opinion, and if necessary a 3rd opinion before taking drastic measures such as surgery.  I highly recommend that anybody that has back pain, have one of those opinions be from a chiropractor as chiropractors are one of the few who are highly qualified for spinal problems.  Many times a short treatment plan of chiropractic care can determine if a patient can improve and avoid surgery.  Chiropractic is known to have around an 85% success rate with back pain, without the side effects of drugs or surgery.

I also have firsthand experience with back surgery, as my mother was told 15 years ago she needed surgery for spinal stenosis and a herniated disc and nothing else would help.  Fortunately for her, I was in chiropractic college and I said to please try going to a chiropractor.  I referred her to somebody I knew in her town… and we prevented her surgery for around 12 years before “needing” the surgery.  Chiropractic helped her maintain her normal daily activities without restriction.  Fortunately, when time came, I found her a great orthopedic surgeon who has an amazing reputation.

In my 13 years in practice, I have helped patients in Freehold, Marlboro, Manalapan, Howell, Colts Neck, Jackson, and Morganville, NJ avoid unnecessary surgeries that orthopedic doctors said were the only answer.  So before opting for surgery, give us a call to see if we can help you.

Seattle Home Sales Cruise Up 20% in July

With final numbers coming in from the NWMLS for July home sales, it looks like July was the strongest month we’ve seen in years.  A total of 3,168 houses and condos were sold in King County last month, marking a 19.9 percent gain over the same month in 2012.

July Seattle real estate sales

That sales number is the highest total we’ve seen since the peak of the local real estate market in summer of 2007.  It was also 6.6 percent higher than June’s sales total of 2,971 homes.

Inventory still seems to be tracking upward, with new listings outpacing sales but only slightly.  5,857 new listings came on the market in July, creating about 2,800 excess properties above the sales level.  New listings have been on the increase since January, but didn’t significantly pick up until May of this year, causing a shortage in general and a late listing season.
