Celebrities Seek Chiropractic
A recent internet article gave some interesting information on one of the world's most famous faces. For years we've seen and heard in the news about the health challenges faced by Elizabeth Taylor. We've all seen photos of her in a wheel chair and heard about her battle with prescription drugs she had been taking for back pain. It was wonderful to read in this piece that she had sought out the care of a chiropractor with great results. She credits her chiropractor with rehabilitation and recovery from back problems. Miss Taylor is hardly the only celebrity to utilize chiropractic care to regain and maintain her health. Other chiropractic regulars include
Warren Beatty, James Earl Jones, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jack Nicholson, Julie Andrews, Jane Seymour,
Car Accident, Neck & Back Pain Years Later
With current legislation mandating the use of seat belts, an increased number of neck and back injuries have been reported when seat belts are used. While these injuries may be less significant than in unrestricted accidents, health care providers must address these potentially lifelong problems and not dismiss them as merely "Whiplash". Many cases of tension headache and Cervical Migraine may be the result of a neck injury that may have been forgotten or simply dismissed as trivial by the patient-according to a study published in Spine. In the article, Dr. MacNab reviewed 266 cases and found at least
45% continued to have symptoms 2 years following the settlement of court actions.
Most people that are involved in "minor" rear-end collisions do not realize the potential for injury to the spine.
If pain does not immediately ensue, the incident may be forgotten.
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.
Fender Benders and Back Pain
Recently, a patient came in and reported that, for some reason, he "just wasn't feeling right". We discussed his life over the last couple of weeks and figured out, to me, the obvious reason for his back pain flaring up.
It seems this fellow was in a minor "fender bender" a couple weeks previous. He said it really wasn't much of an accident and there was very little damage to the car. He took his car in "just in case" and the only repair necessary was to have the wheels realigned. He added that he felt no physical discomfort at all right after the accident so he figured he was "OK".
