Fibromyalgia and Low Vitamin D Levels

Fibromyalgia patients are at risk of vitamin D deficiency according to a new study from Ireland. In the study, 36% of fibromyalgia patients had deficient levels of vitamin D and 62% had insufficient levels. That meant only 15% of patients were getting adequate levels of the vitamin. The patients were mostly middle-aged women. Researchers pointed out that the women’s vitamin D levels may have been affected by the fact they live in seldom-sunny Ireland. When it is sunny, patients may still choose to stay indoors because of their disability and pain. Low vitamin D levels can increase the risk of cognitive impairment in older adults, severe asthma in children, cancer, and more. Vitamin...

Chiropractic Beats Physical Therapy for Back Pain

Many people are sent to physical therapists for back pain, but a recent study finds that chiropractic patients have better results. Numerous studies have shown that chiropractic can be an effective treatment for patients with low back pain. Now a new report has looked further into the effectiveness of chiropractic by comparing it to physical therapy treatment, and, more significantly, studying the long-term benefits of chiropractic as measured by the annual number of office visits. Most studies that look at long-term effects of treatment simply look at self-reported outcomes: level of pain and disability. This study took a different approach. By examining how much care patients sought after...

Early Degenerative Changes May be a Source of Future Low-Back Pain

Though muscle and ligament strain are the most common causes of low back pain, degeneration of the intervertebral discs and osteoarthritis of the facet joints are also major causes of low back pain and other spinal health issues. Recently, researchers set out to find whether disc degeneration and osteoarthritis of the facet joints are related and how they develop throughout life. The study was done because it is difficult to image the facet joint’s degenerative history and its relationship to other degeneration in the spine. Organ donors were used to compare the characteristics of the lumbar spine to the condition of their nearby intervertebral discs. This was assessed through magnetic...

Do Older People Simply Accept Back Pain?

In a recent study published in the Journal of Aging and Health, researchers found that while older people are more likely to suffer from lower back pain, they are less likely to seek treatment. The cross-sectional telephone survey determined that 12.3% of older adults experienced chronic lower back pain versus 6.5% of adults aged 21-44. In addition, older adults with chronic lower back problems experienced pain for a longer time and became more disabled than younger adults. Surprisingly, the older adults were less depressed about their situation. The older adults were also less likely to seek or receive treatment. Whether the treatment was bed rest, medications or alternative care, older...

Chiropractic Cut Migraine Pain by 68%

Mainstream medical treatment of migraine headache relies heavily on using pharmaceuticals to manage and control migraine pain. But medications can come with a slew of side effects like nausea, dizziness, vomiting, and even more headaches from medication overuse. Fortunately natural remedies exist that can ease migraine without the adverse effects of drugs. A 2012 study found that chiropractic adjustments and massage resulted in a 68% reduction in the intensity of migraine headache. The study included ten male migraine sufferers who were treated with gentle massage, stretching, and chiropractic adjustments of the upper back and neck. Within an hour after receiving an adjustment the average...

Chiropractic Better Than Muscle Relaxants for Back Pain

Over ¾ of adult Americans experience lower back pain at some point in their lives, and nearly 1 in 5 experience it each year, making it important to determine which treatments are most effective. This double-blind study looked at the effectiveness of treating subacute lower back pain (LBP) with chiropractic adjustments when compared to treatment with muscle relaxants or a placebo (sugar pill). The 146 subjects who completed the study were between 21 and 59 years old, with uncomplicated LBP lasting from 2 to 6 weeks at the start of the study. Those with underlying spinal disease or malformations were excluded. Each subject underwent chiropractic and radiographic evaluation at the initial...

Case Study: Chiropractic Eases Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Chiropractic & Exercise: Perfect Fibromyalgia Treatment

Anyone with a chronic pain condition like fibromyalgia knows it can be difficult to adhere to a complex set of treatment instructions: physical therapy, medications, creams, journals, the list goes on. We get busy or forget and sometimes don’t comply completely with the treatment, but sooner or later the pain creeps back in.  It turns out that regular chiropractic visits can actually help fibromyalgia patients adhere to long-term physical-therapy programs, thereby ensuring that patients receive the full benefits of exercise. In a 2009 study, 55 women with fibromyalgia ages 21-59 years old were divided into two groups: some completed resistance training and the others received...

Your Headaches Might Be Caused by Neck Dysfunction

Do you ever experience neck stiffness or pain with your headaches? Recent research suggests that neck and head pain are more related than you think. One study examined whether headaches and cervical spine impairment were linked in patients with head pain. Of the patients evaluated, 90% had cervicogenic headaches, or headaches linked to neck pain. Furthermore, the severity of patients’ headaches impacted the range of motion in their necks. This study demonstrates the strong relationship between cervical spine (neck) impairment and cervicogenic headaches. Visit a chiropractor in your area to determine whether your headaches are related to impairment and pain in your neck. Hall TM, Briffa...
