Sarasota Chiropractors

We all know the last thing anyone needs is to be in a car accident. Where to seek treatment is one of the biggest decisions we face along with why you should consider CBP chiropractic care for help with your injuries.

Pain after a car accident is a good indication of an injury. If there's any chance that severe or life threatening injuries are involved, you should first go to an emergency room to rule those out. If the hospital clears you of serious injuries but you are still experiencing pain, seeing a CBP chiropractor should be your next step.

What most people don't realize is that even a minor fender bender can lead to soft tissue damage and that more than half of all whiplash injuries occur in crashes where there was little to no damage to the vehicle.

Even if you're experiencing no pain, it is still a good idea to see a chiropractor after your car accident. It could be weeks or months before you feel any discomfort or pain. In Florida you have 14 days to seek medical attention or you forfeit your right to medical attention under your insurance.

Dr. Chait has 30 years of experience in treating car accident injuries and the neck and back pain, headaches, numbness and tingling, muscle stiffness and other symptoms that go along with them. We we will work with your muscles to help them recover from the trauma. Strengthening those that are weak gives you more ability to move your neck, back arms and legs with less pain and increases your range of motion. Add this gentle care into your recovery plan and you will be pleased with the results.

Is There A Right Or Wrong Way To Sleep?

Your posture is a key factor in maintaining your overall good health.  Many people overlook the importance of good posture while sleeping. The way you sleep can affect your everyday life in many different ways, including your physical and emotional well-being. We at Chait Chiropractic Center want to share some simple tips for good posture that will help you start improving how you sleep and how you feel when you’re awake.

 Avoid sleeping on your stomach. When you sleep on your stomach you have to turn your head one way or the other which can cause a strain on the neck, joints, and muscles. Sleeping on your back or side are the best sleeping positions for good posture. Sleeping on your back or side may feel strange at first if you’re not used to it but most people are able to adjust quickly.   Using the right pillow can make a big difference when it comes to sleeping positions for good posture. How can a big fluffy pillow cause you harm? First of all it can put you in a forward head posture which can lead to misalignments in the neck. You should use a pillow that is not too thick or soft. Just like your mattress, you need a pillow that provides enough support so that your neck remains in a neutral position while you sleep. Make sure to keep the pillow underneath your head and neck, rather than under your shoulders.  Upgrade your mattress. Even if you’re using an appropriate sleeping position for good posture, you may still be damaging your back if you’re using a mattress that doesn’t provide enough support. After roughly seven years, most mattresses become too soft and lumpy to give you proper support. Unless you have a pillow top, you should flip your mattress periodically to get even wear and rotate the mattress from head to toe. If you’re not ready to buy a new, firmer mattress, you can improve the support of your current mattress by placing a large piece of plywood between the mattress and the box spring.

Loosen your muscles before bed and after you wake up by doing some light stretching. Even if you used the right sleeping positions for good posture, stretching your back helps to keep your posture in check throughout the day.   Work on your posture during the day. Just like how your sleep affects your daytime posture, your daytime posture affects your sleeping habits. A quick way to check your posture is to place your back straight against a wall. Your shoulder blades and the back of your head should touch the wall. If this feels unnatural, you may want to start being more conscious of your posture. At Chait Chiropractic Center we offer complimentary posture analysis to determine what your posture is like. Call us today at 941-371-1070 to schedule your appointment.

 

 

Today millions of Americans are in less pain, are more mobile and have improved health because of treatment received by a Doctor of Chiropractic. As good as it is, Chiropractic care evolves and improves based on continuous advances in science and technology. At Chait Chiropractic Center we offer the Chiropractic BioPhysics technique.

Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) is a chiropractic technique developed and studied, starting in the 1970s, by Donald D. Harrison, PhD, DC. In December 1980 the CBP Technique was originally named by Drs. Donald Harrison, Deanne Harrison, and Daniel Murphy for “physics applied to biology in chiropractic”. Since that time more than 130 clinical trials and scientific research studies investigating different aspects of CBP have been published.

CBP Technique is not just another trend or fad—In fact in 2015 there were 9 internationally accredited chiropractic colleges. With 14 post-graduate courses, CBP Technique offers chiropractors more than 190 hours of continued training, covering the latest strategies to treat spine disorders and improve patient health and well being.

CBP uses a mixture of Exercises, Adjustments and Traction intended to affect a measurable change in a person's posture and radiographic measurements. These changes are thought to improve the biomechanics of the spine; thus reducing symptoms, improving function, and preventing degeneration. As a result, it is safe to say that CBP Chiropractors use tested and proven techniques for remodeling your spine from top to bottom.
