Fatigue, Headaches, Sleeping

Don't let Headaches Distract You

The throbbing…pounding…sensation of a splitting headache is an all too accepted condition for millions of people each day. Some suffer with headaches several times a month, others even more often. A headache can be a distraction that affects your job and your family life. HEADACHES are not a normal condition.

Many people resort to medication to temporarily dull the pain. Unfortunately, relief is often fleeting, and the cycle returns again and again. It seems no matter how many pills are taken, if the cause of the problem is not identified and treated, the headaches will continue.

Although many things can cause a headache; including sinus problems and alcohol use, the most common cause is muscle tension. The brain itself does not register the ache of a headache, but there are nerves, veins and arteries that are wrapped around the head. If these cranial nerves are compressed, pulled or irritated, a headache can be the result. Help is often possible! Ask your Durham chiropractor how ProAdjuster technology can be a part of successfully treating your headaches.

Don't Daydream About a Good Night's Sleep

Getting a restful night of sleep is an absolute requirement.It is not an option. Your body must sleep and replenish itself for you to operate at an optimal level. For many people, a good night's sleep is something they only daydream about because night after night, they do not get the rest their body needs.

There are many types of sleep disorders: night pains, daytime dozing, insomnia, sleep apnea and daytime fatigue to mention only a few. Whatever the problem is, it cannot be ignored. You must sleep for your body to recover or you will suffer many side effects.

Some people resort to sleeping pills or other non-natural methods to induce sleep. Quite often, these are only a temporary fix to a deeper problem. Getting to bed on a regular schedule, avoiding alcohol and caffeine and sleeping in a comfortable position can all be helpful, but sometimes they are not enough. By bringing your body into balance, the harmony of nature can often lend itself to provide what you need…a restful night of sleep! Ask your chiropractor how ProAdjuster technology can be a part of successfully alleviating your sleep disturbances.

Fatigue is a Warning Sign

Unfortunately, fatigue is a problem that saps the joy out of life for numerous people every day. Maybe the person working next to you, a family member, or even you, have felt the effects of being too tired to work properly. You simply do not have the energy to enjoy life with your friends and family.

Fatigue can range from a chronic tired feeling, to a more pronounced physical and psychological depression that drains your energy and robs your time. Fatigue is a warning sign that something is wrong, either physically or emotionally in your life. To ignore this symptom is a mistake. Many people struggle through life believing that it is normal or it will go away on its own. Fatigue generally will not go away on its own and it certainly is not normal!

There are many supposed causes for fatigue, from diet to improper medications. Most people simply want to feel better and put the spark back in their life. It is possible to get your energy back and start enjoying your life again, but you have to take the first step! Ask your chiropractor how ProAdjuster technology can be a part of successfully overcoming your fatigue.


Mood Swings, Sinus and Allergy Problems, Living in Pain

Don't Let Allergies Get You Down

Suffering with sinus problems and allergies is a condition that many people live with every day of their lives. Runny nose, watery eyes and a host of threatening body responses are often the result of sinus and allergy problems. Your immune system is meant to protect you from anything that is not supposed to be in your body. Sometimes it cannot function as it was intended and your body is left at the mercy of pollutants, dust, pollen and drugs.

The most common treatment for sinus and allergy problems has been to treat symptoms. Sinus issues and allergies are generally caused by histamines, so antihistamines are often used to dry the membranes. It then appears that the problem is solved. In reality, this only suppresses the symptoms. The problem with the immune system is often ignored.

Stress on the nervous system may prevent it from operating at its best, therefore, it cannot deal with outside conditions affecting the body. When the nervous system functions properly, it can aid the immune system in a natural way. There have been great strides in helping people with sinus and allergy problems. You need to find the right solution for you. Wouldn't it be great if your solution could be a natural one? Ask your chiropractor how ProAdjuster technology can be a part of successfully alleviating your sinus and allergy problems.

Nobody Wants to be Unpredictable

Mood swings can cause a normal, reasonable person to become irritable and difficult to be around. While this can be a problem for others, it pales in comparison to the instability the person feels. No one wants to be so unpredictable but, for many, it's a way of life.

There are many suspected causes of mood swings; including diet, use of some medications or unbalanced body functions and structures. Although changes in diet or medication may help some, others are often left grasping at solutions that never seem to materialize.

The standard approach for many has been that of medication. Sometimes a chemical solution to mood swings can have negative side effects.

The medications can be as problematic as the condition itself, even if it works some of the time. There are some doctors who have been successful at leveling the drastic nature of mood swings in a completely natural way. What a thought; no mood swings and a natural solution to a new lease on life! Ask your chiropractor how ProAdjuster technology can be a part of successfully balancing your moods.

You Don't Have to Live With Pain

Pain is your body's way of telling you that something is wrong. It's a warning sign. Each and every day millions of people experience pain at some point in their day, some even start and end their day in pain.

There are two types of pain: acute and chronic. Acute pain can be mild or severe and may be caused by a broken bone, bruise, sprain or even a cut. It is a new pain. Chronic pain is different. It can last for six months or more and may be accompanied by exhaustion, insomnia or weight changes.

Whatever the type of pain, some people resort to painkillers to alleviate the symptoms. On the surface, there is nothing wrong with getting rid of the pain. No one wants to live with discomfort. Taking medication to reduce the intensity of the pain often only masks the causes of the problem. Wouldn't it be better to find the true cause and treat it directly? Of course it would. Ask your Durham doctor how ProAdjuster technology can be a part of successfully alleviating pain anywhere in your body.


Arthritis, Pregnancy, Children and Chiropractic

Does Arthritis Limit Your Life

Arthritis pain and the limits it places on your life may soon be eliminated. Arthritis is a condition of the entire body, but it is most often seen in the joints. A friend, loved one or even you, may wake up with body stiffness, joint aches or experience pain that limits activity.

It is estimated that most people over the age of 50 have some form of the problem (usually osteoarthritis). Many people much younger can also suffer the effects of arthritis. It is sometimes traced to stress placed on the body, more specifically spinal stress, that causes wear and tear on the joints.

The body's natural defense can often be seen on x-rays of the spine, where spurring or bone growth has developed as a way to build up and protect a weakened area. The standard approach for many people is to treat the symptoms of pain and joint discomfort with drugs. This is only a temporary fix at best. Wouldn't it make more sense to find the cause of the problem? Ask your chiropractic physician how ProAdjuster technology can be a part of successfully alleviating your arthritic condition.

Children and Chiropractic

Children are very active. They can spend an endless amount of time jumping, running and playing hard. But, sometimes all of this physical activity can put an undue stress on spinal nerves, which can lower a child's resistance to a number of maladies.

We think nothing of having our children's teeth and eyes checked on a regular basis, yet many times we neglect the importance of a spinal check-up. The spine is home to the spinal cord. It is the most amazing bundle of nerves that controls every function in the body. Even the slightest misalignment can cause interference in this process and leave the child vulnerable to a host of issues.

Childhood should be a time of fun, growth and preparation for a healthy adulthood. Many times children spend this joyous time plagued with adult-type problems such as fatigue, nervousness, poor concentration, headaches, back pain or irritability, just to name a few. Ask your doctor how a natural approach to health utilizing ProAdjuster technology can be a wise investment in your child's future.

Going the Distance with your Pregnancy

Pregnancy is extremely hard on the lower back as well as on the neck and shoulders. Examine the spine of an expectant mother from the side and it's easy to understand why they're in pain. Due to the increased development of the breast tissue, the shoulders are rounded forward, placing tremendous pressure on the neck and shoulders. The weight of the growing child places the lower back in a strenuous position.

The nine months of pregnancy brings many hormonal changes that relax the ligaments which stabilize the lower back and pelvis. As the pelvis rotates down in the front, the muscles of the lower back become short and tight, causing an increase in pressure on the pain sensitive joints of the lower back, producing achy lower back pain.
