Are You Suffering From Chronic Neck Pain?

Did you know that chronic neck pain is a common musculoskeletal condition that may effect an estimated 70% of persons at some point in their lives? 

 A 2012 U.S. study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine January 3, 2012  has revealed that patients receiving chiropractic treatment combined with exercise for chronic neck pain were twice as likely to become pain-free than those receiving medication.

The study followed 272 persons aged 18 to 65 years who had  neck pain for 12 weeks.  The patients were randomly assigned to one of three groups: 91 to the spinal manipulation therapy group, 90 to the medication group and 91 to the home exercise group.

The results of the study are encouraging for chronic pain sufferers who prefer not to take medication to manage their pain:

32% of those receiving only chiropractic care became pain-free

30% of those exercising became pain-free

13% of those treated with medication for chronic pain became pain-free.

For participants with neck pain, spinal manipulation was more effective than medication in both the short and long term.  Chiropractic care can play an important role in the assessment and management of chronic neck pain. If you or someone you know would like to consult with Dr. Chait on the effective relief of chronic pain through chiropractic treatment- call Chait Chiropractic Center at (941)371-1070.

 

Were you recently in an automobile accident?  Are you aware that in the state of Florida you have 14 days from the date of the accident to seek medical attention?  You may think you feel fine today, but are you?  Most people think they will be in pain if they are injured. This is not always true.  You may have suffered damage without experiencing any initial pain. Even a small injury can get aggravated as time goes by causing inflammation and pain. Why not prevent this from happening by getting checked out by Dr. Chait?  

Many auto accident victims also fear seeking medical treatment. They worry about being prescribed pain medications that have side effects or having to undergo surgery. Even tho you may be hesitant about going to the  hospital or your primary care physician, you have no reason to fear a chiropractor. Chiropractic works by restoring your body’s natural function and helping your body heal itself without risky drugs or surgery. Chiropractic is the perfect way to recover after something as traumatic as a car crash. Not only is chiropractic a natural form of healthcare, but it is safe for people of all ages including pregnant women! 

If you or someone you know has been involved in an accident, call Chait Chiropractic Center immediately. The quicker you receive the care you need, the quicker your injuries will heal and the faster you can get on with your life. Don't delay, call 941-371-1070 to schedule an appointment.

A study was performed on 46 children under the age of 5 to determine if ear infections improved while under chiropractic care.  All treatments were done by a single chiropractor, who adjusted the misalignments found paying particular attention to the cervical vertebrae.
 
"Improvement was based on parental decision (they stated that the child had no fever, no signs of ear pain, and was totally asymptomatic), and/or the child seemed to be asymptomatic to the treating DC and/or the parent stated that the child's MD judged the child to be improved."
 
The results were that 93% of all episodes improved, 75% in 10 days or fewer and 43% with only one or two treatments.  In this published study found on Pub Med, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8728460, the data indicates that limitation of medical intervention and the addition of chiropractic care may decrease the symptoms of ear infection in young children.
 
Dr. John Chait has been treating children in his chiropractic office for over 30 years.  If you have a child suffering from ear infections please call Chait Chiropractic Center at 941-371-1070 to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Chait to see how chiropractic can help your loved one.
