Millville Chiropractic Newsletter from Wilson Family Chiropractic for February 2017

All Benefit when DCs and MDs Work Together

Doctors working together benefits patients. Wilson Family Chiropractic is always ready to work with Millville healthcare colleagues to help a Millville chiropractic patient! A new study reports that when family medicine residents and chiropractors cooperatively care for older patients with back pain, everyone wins. Patients liked it. Both types of doctors liked getting to know each other’s treatment approaches. (1) While another study demonstrates that multidisciplinary conferences connecting many kinds of providers lessen the use of spinal fusion for low back and improve the matching of surgical type to the proper patient type. (2) It’s all good! Wilson Family Chiropractic is ready to help!

Proper Timing for Back or Neck Surgery

It’s found that 88% of cervical radiculopathy patients and 70% of lumbar radiculopathy patients improve within 4 weeks of symptom onset. Therefore, prime timing for surgery for cervical radiculopathy (arm/upper extremity pain) is within 8 weeks of symptoms though 4 weeks may be considered and between 4 and 8 weeks for lumbar radiculopathy (leg/lower extremity pain). (3) Wilson Family Chiropractic, of course, aims to prevent surgery and recognizes when it is necessary and is ready to refer any Millville back pain sufferer when it’s time. Count on Wilson Family Chiropractic for your non-surgical back pain and neck pain care.

Eat Healthy!

It’s not just a slogan! Healthy eating improves bone mineral density and lowers the risk of osteoporosis. Eating more fruits and vegetables caused higher bone mineral density and less osteoporosis occurrence in middle-aged and elderly persons with lower body mass indices. And to cheer those Millville chiropractic patients who don’t like veggies as much, fruit seems to contribute more positively than vegetables. (4) Less osteoporosis can potentially mean less back pain later in life, so enjoy some veggies and fruit today!

Vitamin D and Back Pain

Millville chronic low back pain sufferers who also have low vitamin D levels benefit from vitamin D supplementation. Improved vitamin D levels via supplementation show reduced pain intensity and better function ability in chronic low back pain patients. (5) Wilson Family Chiropractic thinks it’s nice that an easy intervention as a nutritional supplement may have such a powerful impact on back pain!

Cervical Spine and Tinnitus Related

Everything is connected! Wilson Family Chiropractic knows this to be true! Wilson Family Chiropractic just read this study about tinnitus and its potential relationship to cervical spine disorders. That makes sense! They find that when cervical spine disorders are improved, so is the tinnitus. There is a link between the dorsal cochlear nucleus in the auditory pathway and the cervical spine. (6) Does tinnitus with a cervical spine condition bother you? A Millville friend? Wilson Family Chiropractic offers gentle chiropractic care to help them both potentially! Millville chiropractic may help.

Obesity Increases Osteoporosis Risk

When we think about osteoporosis, we used to think thin people were at risk. That’s what Wilson Family Chiropractic would think. But not now! New research reports that obesity is a major risk factor for osteoporosis since fat is used by inflammatory cytokines to negatively influence bone metabolism. (7) Now, that’s new news. All of us Millville folks – thin and overweight – need to be attentive of osteoporosis risk and how to manage it.
