Straight from the Shoulder Info on Arm Pain
No one would disagree that shoulders and arms are pretty convenient things to have. The Designer of the human body made the shoulders with special kinds of joints that allow wide ranging, rotating movement. Not only can we swing a hand we're holding, but also we can wave "hello" with both arms thrown over our heads in greeting. Our arms are beautifully made to carry tools and babies, reach into a car's interior or raise a flag or fork.
Caution: Low Shoulder
"Caution: Low Shoulder" is an obvious danger sign. On the highway, it means to watch where you're going. If you get too close to the side of the road, you'll slide off into the ditch where you might get stuck or even roll your car. When you have a low shoulder, you may be in danger of sliding off into ill health. A low shoulder can often indicate a musculo-skeletal (muscles and the bones they're attached to) imbalance that can create functional problems, as well as, pain.
Chiropractors, Ground Zero Heroes
The atrocities of September 11, 2001 have affected us all. Stress levels are high. A 16% increase in prescriptions for "mood regulators" has occurred since the tragedy. Most people are at a loss as to how they can help. Like many Americans, chiropractors have donated blood and made substantial donations to the Red Cross relief fund.
However, for a growing number of chiropractors,
"how to help" immediately
meant doing the thing they do best:
to give chiropractic adjustments to the workers at the site of the World Trade Center.
Don't Let Travel Be Pain in
"Prolonged sitting can wreak havoc on your body," says Dr. Bautch, president of the American Chiropractic Association's Council on Occupation Health. "Even if you travel in the most comfortable car or opt to fly first class, certain pressures and forces from awkward positions can result in restricted blood flow. One of the biggest insults to your system from prolonged sitting is the build up of pressure in the blood vessels in your lower legs."
