Auto Accident Back Pain Years Later
With current legislation mandating the use of seat belts, an increased number of neck and back injuries have been reported when seat belts are used. While these injuries may be less significant than in unrestricted accidents, health care providers must address these potentially lifelong problems and not dismiss them as merely "Whiplash". Many cases of tension headache and Cervical Migraine may be the result of a neck injury that may have been forgotten or simply dismissed as trivial by the patient-according to a study published in Spine. In the article, Dr. MacNab reviewed 266 cases and found at least 45% continued to have symptoms 2 years following the settlement of court actions. Most people that are involved in "minor" rear-end collisions do not realize the potential for injury to the spine. If pain does not immediately ensue, the incident may be forgotten.


Back Packs and Back Pain
The amount of weight carried by children in their backpacks deserves serious consideration. Loading the spine risks low back pain not only in adults but in children; the load that children commonly carry is their school backpack. To quantify how much weight children likely carry in their backpacks, researchers from Milan, Italy ascertained the weight of backpacks used by sixth graders at several schools.


Are You Locked Out of a Healthy Spine
Have you ever gotten up one morning, tried to stretch, and felt like some part of your back or neck was just "stuck"?

-or-

Have you ever leaned over to pick something up, stretched toward the item and your body just "stopped" before you completed the reach?

-how about-

You're in your swing playing tennis or golf, or going up for a layup on one side of the basket and your body just "quits" or "catches"?

It is sometimes easy to tell when it's time for a chiropractic visit. That "stuckness" that you feel may be a locked out vertebra. Bones in your spine may have, by injury, result of bad habit, or even genetic weakness, managed to move out of normal position. This effects normal body balance and function. This spinal fixation can create pain and muscle spasm, direct and indirect effects on the nervous system, and inflammation.




AMA Alternative Health Care
According to an article released by the American Medical Association on November 13, 2000, "a growing number of medical schools, teaching hospitals and physicians are opening clinics that combine conventional medicine and evidence-based alternative medicine." Chiropractic is one of five alternatives that are listed as "the most researched forms of complementary" medicines used in the clinics.
