Patients often come into our office and say they have been experiencing back pain and taking Tylenol or another pain reliever to help them get through their pain. Unfortunately, this is not a solution to actually fix the often functional problem causing their pain. I often tell patients that you can not fix a physical problem with a chemical! Also, chronic use of many NSAIDs such as Tylenol can lead to many other long-term problems.
You can read more about the effects of pain relievers here: http://toyourhealth.com/mpacms/tyh/article.php?id=2110. Try chiropractic instead, it's the "natural pain reliever" and might be the solution you have been searching for!

All too frequently, I talk to patients who say their knees feel creaky or are cracking when they bend them. While adjustments can help with knee pain and the "cracking" sensation, strengthening the joint with proper exercises can speed up the healing process. The stronger the muscles surrounding a joint, the better a joint will respond to other forms of therapy.
Here are some exercises to strengthen the knees:

Most people have heard of whiplash. When you're in a car accident, the spine can be "whipped" back and forth, causing trauma and injury to the muscles surrounding it and misalignment to the spine. No matter how minor or severe the accident you are in, you should have your spine checked. Getting treatment within 72 hours of an accident or injury will help prevent the muscles from forming muscle memory.

Spring has sprung and so has the pollen! Unfortunately, Spring’s beautiful weather brings with it a cloud of yellow powder. Many of our patients suffer from allergies and pollen contributes greatly to their sneezing, sniffling, and congestion. There are a few natural ways you can help alleviate your allergy symptoms.
- A spoonful of honey can soothe your itchy throat and coughing. Honey will coat the throat and help calm down the itchy sensation.
- Stay hydrated! Gargle with salt water, use a humidifier, and drink plenty of fluids such as tea and water. This will help keep your throat from being sore and help keep your congestion to a minimum.
- Get adjusted! Getting chiropractic adjustments can help boost your immune system and keep your nervous system functioning properly. This helps keep your allergies at bay.
Call your local chiropractor today to find out more about what you can do to keep your allergies under control this Spring. Visit here for more information on natural ways to relieve your allergies: http://toyourhealth.com/

Dr. Richard Armstrong was involved in a study to compare the cost effectiveness of Chiropractic vs. medical care for neck pain, back pain, and headaches. The results concluded that it is more cost effective for patients with these symptoms to receive chiropractic care. The study is due to be released later this year. Dr. Armstrong, along with other Doctors of Chiropractic involved in the study, received the McAndrew's Award for research. Keep your eyes out for the study! We'll post it as soon as it is published. Meanwhile, you can read a little more about the study here. Congratulations, Dr. Armstrong!Posted by: Chiropractic Partners
