Las Vegas Chiropractor | Spinal Problems and Kids’ Backpacks

Las Vegas Chiropractor Back Pain | Heavy Backpack and Spinal MisalignmentLas Vegas Chiropractor | Spinal Problems and Kids’ Backpacks

As children throughout the Las Vegas metro area start their school year, it’s very important to understand the health implications of carrying around heavy backpacks to and from school.

Many chiropractors, doctors and researchers recommend that the weight of the backpack should be somewhere between 5% to 10% of the weight of the child. So for example if your sixth grader weighs 90 pounds, his or her backpack should weigh no more than 5-9 pounds.

Unfortunately however, recent studies show that the average weight of a backpack in the United States of a sixth grader is 15-20 pounds. Which means your child will have to compensate for the heavy weight by leaning forward and arching their back. Others who prefer to wear their backpacks on one side of the shoulder, make up for the imbalance by shifting their posture away from the heavy load.

This type of weight on the back, as well as the overcompensation leads to spinal misalignments, exacerbation of spinal deformities, and a wide range of health problems in the future. The only way to help you child maintain a good posture and strengthen their spine is through:

  • Use of wheeled backpacks
  • Use of online books / e-books (where available)
  • Corrective chiropractic care

[/list]

Furthermore, children can sustain spinal misalignments even if they don’t use heavy backpacks, by simply being kids. Horsing around, taking part in sports activities, or even sitting behind their computers for more than 20 minutes can lead to spinal misalignments. Spinal misalignments put unnecessary and sometimes-dangerous amounts of pressure on the delicate nerves in the neck and back. If not realigned properly, nerve interference can lead to bak pain, neck pain, hip pain, discomfort, organ dysfunction, and eventually disease – such as asthma, weak immune system, acid reflux disease, headaches, and allergies.

Las Vegas Chiropractor: Vitamin D and Chiropractic Care

Aliante Integrated Physical Medicine | Chiropractic Las VegasLas Vegas Chiropractor: Vitamin D and Chiropractic Care

Exposure to sun and regular adjustments can increase your Vitamin D. Exposure to sun is a natural way for your body to receive Vitamin D. While this can be both relaxing and nourishing to your body, did you know that receiving regular chiropractic adjustments may also improve your body’s ability to receive Vitamin D?

Vitamin D is just as important a vitamin as all those other lettered vitamins you hear about. It has been shown to help:
• Absorb calcium
• Build strong bones and teeth
• Improve immune function
• Promote cardiovascular health and weight loss

This vitamin can be found in healthy foods such as canned tuna, egg yolks and cheese. Eating these and other healthy foods not only can help fill your body with Vitamin D, but also can help give your body other valuable vitamins and minerals necessary for optimal health. As the sun hits your skin, your skin produces the Vitamin D that your body uses to keep you healthy.

So, if eating healthy and some sun exposure help us receive Vitamin D, how can chiropractic care at Aliante Integrated Physical Medicine (Aliante IPM) in Las Vegas help too?

The Power of a Healthy Nervous System
Chiropractic care doesn’t treat Vitamin D deficiencies, but a person often can better receive Vitamin D by having a healthy nervous system. The nervous system is the master system of your body. This system controls every organ, muscle and tissue, including your skin.

When the bones of your spine are out of place, this can put pressure on the nerves that communicate to your skin. As specific chiropractic adjustments are made to your spine, pressure is taken off the nerves traveling to your skin and other organs. Reducing this pressure or interference improves the health of your nervous system. With a healthy nervous system, your skin is better able to send sensory information to the brain to help the body know how to properly function. When your skin is able to do its job, your body is then able to properly access and use Vitamin D for your overall health.

Together, Vitamin D and chiropractic care can help you have a healthier immune system, a healthier working heart, and an overall higher quality of life.

Las Vegas Chiropractor | Back Pain and Neck Pain May Lead to Disease

Las Vegas Chiropractor | Medical Center | Integrated MedicineLas Vegas Chiropractor | Back Pain and Neck Pain May Lead to Disease

Many Las Vegas residents living with neck pain, back pain, or headaches may experience organ dysfunction, declining health, or even disease in the near future.

Studies show that continued nerve interference as a result of spinal misalignments, will not only cause pain or discomfort, but more importantly cut down on vital nerve energy from reaching your organs. Without adequate nerve energy, vital organs will dysfunction, the immune system will weaken, and the body will go into a state of disease.

Imagine your body is like an apple tree. As we all know, the tree gets nutrition and energy from the soil, up the trunk, and into the branches for the leaves and fruit to utilize. If one of the branches breaks, suffers a deep cut, or is bent out of shape, what do you think will happen to the apples or leaves on that branch?

Most Las Vegas residents don’t realize that they are suffering with spinal misalignment, simply because they aren’t experiencing headaches, excruciating back pain or neck pain. Unfortunately, pain is one of the LAST symptoms of spinal misalignment – which means that by the time you are experiencing daily neck pain, back pain, or headaches – your vital organs may already be suffering the ill effects of nerve interference.

No amount of pain medication, ice packs, or massages will realign your spine back to health. So if you have been involved in an automobile accident, have fallen as a child or adult, have been injured during sports, or suffer with poor postural habits, chances are that your spine is out of alignment.

Aliante Integrated Physical Medicine (previously Aliante Chiropractic) in Las Vegas Nevada, is among a handful of health centers in the United States specializing in ALL aspects of your health; from medical care and preventative care, to Chiropractic BioPhysics® – one of the most researched and scientific corrective chiropractic techniques in the world.

We have helped thousands of Las Vegas back pain, neck pain, and headache sufferers realign their spine back to health, and eliminate the source of their fatigue and disease.

If you or a loved one is suffering with pain, headaches, fatigue, migraines, organ dysfunction, depression, or disease, spinal misalignment could be the culprit. Our team of experienced Las Vegas chiropractors, physical therapists, nurses and doctors, aim to eliminate pain and disease from its source.

Las Vegas Chiropractor: What to Avoid After Getting a Chiropractic Adjustment

Las Vegas IPM | Chiropractic Care Back Pain Las VegasLas Vegas Chiropractor: What to Avoid After Getting a Chiropractic Adjustment

[message_box title=”” color=”green”]jasonjaeger

There really isn’t anything that you should inherently avoid after getting adjusted. However, your own body should tell you what would, and what would not serve you best. You are unique, and so is your healing process. It just might be that gymnastics after getting adjusted could be the perfect thing to support one person’s body, and could cause total overload for another. But the same thing is true of a walk, or a glass of wine, or going to a movie, etc.

Your frequency of chiropractic care is always up to you, and always based on your goals. Whether you choose to come into Aliante Integrated Physical Medicine (Aliante IPM) in Las Vegas weekly or monthly is often based on how much you’ve got “on your plate.”

Las Vegas Chiropractor Says Whiplash Leads to Accelerated Breakdown of the Spine

Las Vegas Back Pain and Whiplash ChiropractorLas Vegas Chiropractor Says Whiplash Leads to Accelerated Breakdown of the Spine

[message_box title=”” color=”green”]jasonjaeger

Dr. Jason Jaeger

Auto collisions and injuries will over stretch or worse, tear loose the connective tissue (muscles, ligaments and tendons) that holds the spine in place. This will create a weakness, which will allow the spine to breakdown and lock into a stressed position. The longer the spine is misaligned, the more wearing down of the spinal joints, discs, muscles etc. will take place. Normal spinal alignment has been well established and published by our group in the medical, physical therapy and chiropractic peer reviewed published literature. Misalignments, a loss or change in normal motion or alignment, of spine segments or spinal regions can cause pain, symptoms and other health problems and diseases.

Frequently at Aliante Integrated Physical Medicine (Aliante IPM) in Las Vegas, we will see patients in who have been involved in automobile collisions. Not only recent car collisions, but also car collisions that have occurred 10 to 15 years before or even longer. Based on the extent of degeneration in the spine, the original injury to the spine can be dated approximately. Why is that? Well, if the spinal balance is altered due to misalignment, there will be unequal pressure applied to the spine over time (Wolff’s Law). Over time, this will lead to a breaking down of the bones, and change or damage ligaments, discs etc., or what is called degenerative disc disease (bone spurs and disc thinning etc.).

My staff and I at Aliante IPM have been seeing this phenomenon for years. And now the research is also showing that Degenerative Disc Disease or what is commonly called Osteo-Arthritis of the spine is a result of misalignments from collisions or injuries or even chronic poor posture.

Can Arthritis Be Prevented?

Research is indicating that whiplash injuries lead to arthritis. Dr. Mason Hohl, an MD and professor of surgery at UCLA Medical Center, says…“Follow-up x-rays taken an average of 7 years after injury in one series of patients without prior x-ray evidence of disc disease indicated that 39% had developed degenerative disc disease at one or more disc levels since injury.” Seven years after the injury, the discs and other spinal structures are already breaking down. There was an expected incidence of 6% degenerative change in the population over this period of time.

Dr. Hohl goes on to say, “Thus, it appeared that the injury had started the process of disc degeneration.”

Further, he stated “In another follow-up study of patients with similar injuries, but with preexisting degenerative changes in the neck; it was observed that after an average of 7 years 39% had residual symptoms, and x-ray evidence of new degenerative change at another level occurred in 55%.” So if you already have had an injury that has started, the degenerative process, and you have another injury; it leads to more degeneration in the area.

Why is it so important to get you neck and head posture/alignment evaluated? How many of us in have had a head or neck injury that has misaligned our spines? Every day that the spine stays misaligned, more degeneration takes place. So is it possible to prevent arthritis? Absolutely! A balanced and stable spine will not degenerate at the same rate as a misaligned and unstable spine.

Call Aliante IPM in Las Vegas at (702) 396-4993 to schedule an appointment to get your neck and head posture/alignment evaluated if you are experiencing pain.

Las Vegas Chiropractor | 3 Amazing Side-Effects of Chiropractic Care

Las Vegas Chiropractor Back Pain Relief Headache Migraine FatigeLas Vegas Chiropractor | 3 Amazing Side-Effects of Chiropractic Care

Taking over-the-counter or prescription medication for numbing the symptoms of your neck or back pain, headaches, migraines, fatigue, and acid reflux disease may provide some much needed relief, but the truth of the matter is that it will not fix the source of the problem. No matter how many Advil or Tylenol one takes, it is not going to take pressure off the delicate nerves in the neck or back, nor will it eliminate nerve interference.

Just as you wouldn’t stick a BanAid on the “Check Engine” light of your car and convince yourself that everything is okay, you shouldn’t take pain or acid reducing medication to simply mask the problems.

Corrective chiropractic care aims to realign the spine back to its healthy shape, while eliminating the source of pain and disease. This takes pressure off of the delicate nerves in your neck and back, and returns the body back to a state of health and wellness.

Pain relief is just one of many “side-effects” that corrective chiropractic care patients report! Other amazing side-effects of chiropractic are:

[list type=”check”]

  • Energy
    Corrective chiropractic care allows vital organs to receive adequate nerve energy, necessary for functioning properly and healing rapidly.
  • Happiness
    Once pain and disease are uprooted from the body, patients report a dramatic reversal in their overall mood, looking at life from a new and purposeful point of view.
  • Clarity
    Now that the mind and spirit are no longer boggled down with dealing with pain and disease, patients report clarity of thought, and enjoyment of life’s little miracles.

Las Vegas Back Pain Chiropractor | What is Corrective Care?

Las Vegas Back Pain ChiropractorLas Vegas Back Pain Chiropractor: What is Corrective Care?

Automobiles take us from point A to point B, no matter what type of car we drive. Some models are designed for luxury, cargo handling, or long road trips, while others are designed for speed and agility. No matter what type of car you drive, chances are you will get to your destination sooner or later.

Chiropractic care has been utilized by millions of people worldwide since its inception over 100 years ago. But did  you know chiropractors practice a wide range of unique techniques? One of those techniques is called Corrective Chiropractic Care, a method by which the spine is realigned back to its healthy shape, taking pressure off of the nerves in the neck and back, eliminating nerve interference, and allowing the body to restore full function to the vital organs.

While general chiropractic care provides instant pain relief, it does not address global spinal misalignments caused by poor postural habits, birth trauma, car accidents, or sports injuries. No matter how many adjustments are performed, ice or heat packs applied, or massages received, the shape of the spine does not change or improve unless the biomechanics of it is fixed.

Misalignments in the spine put excessive amounts of pressure on the delicate nerves coming out of the spine. If the misalignment isn’t corrected, nerve interference will rob your organs of vital nerve energy. This condition leads to not only pain, discomfort, and fatigue, but more importantly organ dysfunction and disease.

Aliante Integrated Physical Medicine (previously Aliante Chiropractic) in Las Vegas Nevada, is among a handful of health centers in the United States specializing in ALL aspects of your health; from medical care and preventative care, to Chiropractic BioPhysics® – one of the most researched and scientific corrective chiropractic techniques in the world.

Las Vegas Pain Relief | Eliminate Pain and Fend off Disease

Las Vegas Pain Relief ChiropractorLas Vegas Pain Relief | Eliminate Pain and Fend Off Disease

Pain is defined as the suffering or discomfort caused by injury or disease; in most cases, at least. When you take a fall, break a bone, or bang your knee against a table, pain is the first symptom of injury, telling you to seek a remedy to correct the problem.

Unfortunately, pain isn’t always the first sign that there is something wrong with our bodies. Some seemingly “healthy” people suffer with a wide range of diseases, without even knowing it. Most people who are diagnosed with cancer, high blood pressure, heart murmurs, or liver disease don’t have any pain whatsoever. They are seemingly shocked to find out they have been living with a certain disease for months, even years – and those are the lucky ones.

Taking care of our bodies by eating right, exercising, and reducing stress has always been the rule of thumb to fend of disease, and live a healthier life. But did you know there is one very important aspect that is often overlooked? Spinal health.

The spine is responsible for carrying nerve energy from the brain, and into the vital organs. Nerve energy helps keep the body’s organs functioning at 100%, and enabling them to heal themselves and fend of disease.

Misalignments in the spine however, as a result of poor posture, car accidents, injuries, or even birth trauma, cause the vertebrae to shift out of place, putting excessive and often dangerous amounts of pressure on the delicate nerves coming out of the spine. Chiropractors call this “nerve interference” which over time leads to a wide range of organ dysfunction, and eventually disease.

Symptoms of spinal misalignment may or may not include pain or discomfort. But subtle signs include fatigue, headaches, sore joints, allergies, asthma, difficulty sleeping, occasional tingling and numbness in the arms and legs, weakened immune system, and wide range of other conditions.

Aliante Integrated Physical Medicine of Las Vegas Nevada, is among a handful of health centers in the United States specializing in all aspects of your health; from medical care and preventative care, to Chiropractic BioPhysics® – the most researched and scientific corrective chiropractic technique, with the aim to realign the spine back to health, and eliminate the source of nerve interference.

Health is our greatest asset, so don’t ignore your symptoms no matter how subtle they may be. Because a body in pain means that disease has already started.

Our team of Las Vegas chiropractors, physical therapists, nurses and doctors, aim to eliminate pain and disease from its source. Our chiropractors are among only a handful of doctors in the Las Vegas area specializing in Chiropractic BioPhysics®. We excel in pinpointing the root cause of pain, fatigue, or disease, and eliminating nerve interference.

Las Vegas Back Pain | Dangers of Ignoring Back Pain

Las Vegas Back Pain and Neck Pain ChiropractorLas Vegas Back Pain | Dangers of Ignoring Back Pain

At any given time, there are 31 million Americans who suffer with back pain. Most experts agree that the actual number of sufferers is closer to 42% of Americans – or 133 million people – since the majority simply ignore their pain, or never report it to a doctor.

Most think that back pain can be ignored, dealt with by taking pain medication, or numbed by ice packs. Unfortunately, none of those methods can address the root cause of the problem which is caused by spinal misalignment – where the vertebrae shifts out of place, and puts dangerous amounts of pressure on the delicate nerves coming out of the spinal cord.

Christopher Reeve, the actor who played Superman in the late 1970’s and throughout the 1980’s, suffered with a spinal cord injury after being thrown from a horse during an equestrian competition. He became quadriplegic, and had to be put in a wheelchair, breath through a breathing apparatus, and eat through a straw. He died a few years later due to organ failure and cardiac arrest.

The impact of his fall injured his neck, creating spinal misalignment, which led to the bruising of his spinal cord and the delicate nerves coming out of it. These nerves are responsible for transmitting nerve energy from the brain to the rest of the body – including limbs and vital organs.

Without proper nerve flow, the vital organs were unable to function correctly, heal, or fend off disease – leading to Christopher Reeve’s untimely death.

This is obviously a worst case scenario, but the nervous system plays a huge role in the function of the human body. Back pain may seem like an inconvenience to you, but if you truly understand how the smallest spinal misalignment can affect your health, you would want to get it fixed right away.

As the name implies, corrective chiropractic care aims to realign the spine back to health, eliminate nerve interference, and allow the body to heal itself. One of the most scientific, researched, and results oriented techniques is called Chiropractic BioPhysics® or CBP.

CBP has been shown to eliminate the source of back and neck pain within a few short visits, but more importantly than that, eliminate the source of fatigue, disease, and dysfunction in a couple of short months.

Our team of Las Vegas chiropractors, physical therapists, nurses and doctors – here at Aliante Integrated Physical Medicine – aim to eliminate pain and disease from its source.

Las Vegas Auto Accidents | What Accident Victims Need to Know

Las Vegas Auto Accident Chiropractor | Back Pain | Aliante IPMLas Vegas Auto Accidents | What Accident Victims Need to Know

Thousands of Las Vegas residents are involved in minor to moderate automobile accidents every year, but most walk away thinking they have dodged serious injury, since they don’t have any visible wounds, broken bones, or feel much pain.

What most car accident victims don’t realize is that the force that was exerted onto their bodies during the accident, has shifted their spine out of alignment. The effects of spinal misalignments can sit dormant for days, weeks, even months after a car accident depending on its severity. But gradually, aches, pains, headaches, fatigue, and general feelings of illness will start setting in.

This is because spinal misalignements due to automobile accidents, poor posture, or sports injuries start exerting constant and dangerous amounts of pressure on the tiny nerves coming out of your spine and into your vital organs. If left untreated, nerve interference will greatly diminish nerve energy, leaving your organs in a state of dysfunction and eventually disease.

Some minor to moderate automobile accident victims start experiencing headaches and migraines between 1 and 6 months after their accident, and complain about sleep disorders, fatigue, and general feelings of ill health. Most even complain about a low level back and neck pain – even though they seemed to be feeling fine right after their accident.

The reason seeing a corrective care chiropractor is so vital immediately after a car accident is simple; the sooner your spinal misalignment is corrected and pressure taken off the nerves, the sooner nerve energy is restored to the rest of your body.

Chiropractic BioPhysics or CBP is the most advanced, scientific, and results-oriented chiropractic technique – which aims to realign the spine back to its normal, healthy shape – all without any painful procedures, invasive surgeries or drugs.

Our team of Las Vegas chiropractors, physical therapists, nurses and doctors – here at Aliante Integrated Physical Medicine – aim to eliminate pain and disease from its source.
