Plagued by Stress? Las Vegas Chiropractor Can Help

Las Vegas Chiropractor Stress ReliefPlagued by Stress? Las Vegas Chiropractor Can Help

Las Vegas residents… are you suffering from stress? A visit to your chiropractor might help.

That’s the conclusion of a study conducted by a team of researchers in Japan in 2011. Twelve male volunteers were recruited to investigate the effects of chiropractic spinal manipulation on the autonomic nervous system, which controls unconscious body functions, such as breathing.

PET scans were performed after the patients received a chiropractic neck adjustment. The result: Altered brain activity in the parts of the brain responsible for pain processing and stress reactions, and significantly reduced levels of cortisol, a hormone that helps the body manage stress. In addition, participants reported decreased stress and a better quality of life after treatment.

How does chiropractic care relieve stress? Simply, chronic stress leads to muscle tension and contraction. In turn, this creates uneven pressure on the bony structures of the body, which can cause spinal misalignments. Misalignments occur when one or more vertebrae shift out of position, interfering with the nerve impulses that carry messages from the brain through the spinal cord and out to all your organs and appendages.

Chiropractic adjustments and spinal rehabilitation release muscle tension, which allows the body return to a more balanced, relaxed state. Corrective chiropractic care also reduce spinal nerve irritation and improve blood circulation. The goal is to convince the brain to turn off the stress response so the body can begin healing.

British Journal of Medicine and Medical Research | Dr. Jason Jaeger

Dr. Jason Jaeger Warns of Looming Epidemic of Health Concerns Due to Dramatic Changes in Posture Driven By Smartphone Use

Peer-reviewed medical paper on hunchback correction published in British Journal of Medicine and Medical Research

Las Vegas Chiropractor

Jason Jaeger Chiropractor Las VegasLas Vegas — Dr. Jason O. Jaeger, D.C., administrative director at Aliante Integrated Physical Medicine, has authored a peer-reviewed medical paper which concludes that postures people use repeatedly on a daily basis can quickly cause permanent changes in their neck and spine, directly impacting not only their health but the duration of their lives.

The British Journal of Medicine and Medical Research published the paper today.

“Think about the amount of time that you spend on a smartphone,” Dr. Jaeger said. “With our old flip phones, we would typically hold them up to our ear. With a modern smartphone, however, the usual position is below the center of the chest while typing furiously. More importantly, the neck is constantly craned. Think of children, students and business men and women spending all of this time each day with their neck craned and shoulders hunched forward, which further constricts the muscles of the chest.”

In his paper, titled “Non-surgical Reduction of Thoracic Hyper-kyphosis in a 24-year old Music Teacher Utilizing Chiropractic BioPhysics® Technique,” Dr. Jaeger states that this common posture is a recipe for disaster.

“We are literally changing the shape of our spines and it results in early morbidity or death,” Dr. Jaeger said. “It is a looming health catastrophe. The fallout is on the horizon.”

The paper is a single case study in which a violinist and music teacher practiced on a daily basis, and her posture led to a notable constriction in lung capacity. The case study suggests a larger approach, according to Dr. Jaeger, regarding how posture affects overall health and can lead to an early death.

In examining possible ways to reverse these effects, two key predictors of longevity are lung capacity and flexibility of the spine and waist. Conventional cures are somewhat limited, typically either surgery or prescription pills (which won’t do anything for the underlying problem but may have a temporary effect on the chronic pain that eventually emerges).

In medical centers of excellence including San Francisco and Seattle, there is an emerging trend toward the use of focused, applied exercises combined with regular sessions using traction as well as chiropractic manipulation.

“Like most of these centers, we use cutting-edge diagnostic equipment including open-ended X-ray machines that show the patient standing so we can see the way the alignment of their frame is under pressure,” Dr. Jaeger said. “These detailed X-rays not only tell us what’s wrong, they also give our experts a quick path on how to address these issues.”

Drug-Free Intervention for ADD/ADHD | Las Vegas Chiropractor

Las Vegas ChiropractorDrug-Free Intervention for ADD/ADHD | Las Vegas Chiropractor

Has your child in Las Vegas been labeled with attention deficit disorder (ADD) or attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD)? If so, you know it’s not an easy diagnosis to live with.

You’re battling behavioral problems such as inattention, impulsiveness and hyperactivity. If you’re treating the child with medications such as Ritalin and Adderall, the behavioral problems are compounded by the side effects of the drugs, such as irritability, loss of appetite and insomnia.

No doubt you’re watching your child’s diet carefully, encouraging exercise, and maybe even taking advantage of behavioral therapy.

These treatments might make the disease more bearable, and a healthy diet plus exercise provides multiple benefits for your youngster. But none of these treatments addresses the underlying neurological nature of the disorders.

By contrast, chiropractors at Aliante Integrated Physical Medicine (formerly Aliante Chiropractic) in Las Vegas go directly to the source of the problem by adjusting and eliminating misalignments in the spine that are causing your child’s dysfunction.

Spinal misalignments are caused by many things – from the trauma of the birth process itself to a fall, an injury or simply poor posture. When they occur, they put excessive pressure on the delicate nerves that flow from the brain, through the spine and into all of your organs and limbs, interrupting the communication between your brain and your body.

Chiropractors at Aliante Integrated Physical Medicine are experts in Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP), with the knowledge to realign the spine and restore normal nerve flow. They assist patients with ADD/ADHD by taking pressure off the nerves in the neck and allowing the nerve energy to flow as nature intended.

Chiropractic BioPhysics is the most researched, scientific and results-oriented corrective chiropractic technique. It is a scientific, safe, drug-free, noninvasive, and pain-free alternative to standard ADD/ADHD treatment.

Aliante is among only 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.

If you or your child in Las Vegas has ADD/ADHD or other neurological disorders such as depression, anxiety, fatigue, fibromyalgia, headaches or migraines, the source could be a misaligned neck. Contact Aliante Integrated Physical Medicine for a consultation to see if you or your child qualify for CBP care.

Las Vegas Chiropractor | Your First Line of Defense Against Back Pain

Las Vegas Chiropractor Back Pain RemedyLas Vegas Chiropractor | Your First Line of Defense Against Back Pain

Health-care consumers with back pain could have saved $1.3 billion over two years if they had consulted chiropractors “at the outset,” according to a report by Optum,  an international health-care research firm.

The report went on to say that patients treated by a chiropractor within 10 days of an episode were less likely to need imaging, injections, prescription medications and surgery.

The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness of chiropractic care, contends that patients who consult a chiropractor before medical intervention achieve a 40 percent reduction in the cost of treatment.

Apparently the message is getting out. As of January 1, 2016, the Oregon Health Plan – the state’s version of Medicaid – will prioritize physical therapy, chiropractic and other complementary treatments over painkillers and surgery.

An estimated 50 percent to 80 percent of the U.S. population experiences back pain at some point in their lives. What’s more, at any point in time, 15 percent to 37 percent of us are experiencing back pain.

Chiropractors are experts on the neuromusculoskeletal system and the spine. A chiropractor can tell whether your pain is due to a misalignment of your spine. A misaligned spine puts pressure on the delicate nerves in the neck and back, interrupting their ability to communicate with the limbs and organs. The effect is much like a hose with a kink in it, or a car with wheels that are out of alignment. Simply put, your body can’t function at its peak.

The solution is Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP), which can rehabilitate the spine, reshape it, and provide exercises to strengthen your back and neck and restore your body’s health. Chiropractic BioPhysics is the most scientific, researched and results-oriented corrective chiropractic technique.

Your Child Can Benefit from Chiropractic Care | Las Vegas Chiropractor

Las Vegas Chiropractor PediatricsYour Child Can Benefit from Chiropractic Care | Las Vegas Chiropractor

The number of children visiting chiropractors is steadily increasing, as Americans look to alternative treatments for their ills. According to a report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 3 percent of children have received chiropractic or osteopathic manipulation.

In many cases, parents who are chiropractic patients themselves are bringing their children in, seeking help for ailments from ear infections to cold, flu, asthma, colic, sleep disorders, reflux, attention deficit and hyperactive disorders and autism.

Although chiropractic care can help clear up a number of health issues, that is not its focus. Instead, chiropractic aims to ensure that the spine is in alignment, so that the nervous system it houses can function effectively.

Simply, a spine that is out of alignment impairs your body’s ability to function at its peak. The misalignment puts pressure on the delicate nerves that branch out into our organs and limbs. That, in turn, can lead to organ dysfunction and disease.

How old should a child be before seeing a chiropractor? Some chiropractors go to hospitals to manipulate of newborns within minutes of birth. The birth process is traumatic. The twisting and pulling the child goes through during birth can throw the spine out of alignment.

Beyond birth and infancy, what about slips and falls when toddlers begin walking – or the wear and tear on the body resulting from older children’s sports activities, heavy backpacks or just horsing around on a Las Vegas playground?

By realigning the spine back to health and eliminating the source of nerve interference, corrective care chiropractors specializing in Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) – the most researched, scientific, and results-oriented chiropractic technique – can restore the flow of nerve energy back to the vital organs.

Aliante Integrated Physical Medicine (Aliante Chiropractic) in Las Vegas, Nevada, is among only 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®.

If you live in the Las Vegas metropolitan area, don’t wait until your child is experiencing pain before you consider contacting the Aliante Integrated Physical Medicine.

Relief for High Blood Pressure | Las Vegas Chiropractor

High Blood Pressure Las Vegas ChiropractorRelief for High Blood Pressure | Las Vegas Chiropractor

Are you one of the many Las Vegas residents with high blood pressure? If so, you’re not alone: nearly 78 million Americans – one out of three adults – has high blood pressure, according to the American Heart Association. That means you are at risk for diseases ranging from stroke and heart attack to arterial aneurysm and even renal failure.

Plenty of factors affect your blood pressure, including diet, exercise and genetics. Blood pressure medicine can help control your hypertension. But chiropractic has repeatedly shown its ability to ameliorate the problem – without the use of medication.

A study published in the Journal of Human Hypertension in 2007 showed positive changes in 25 patients who had both high blood pressure and a misaligned Atlas vertebra (located high in the neck). A control group of 25 patients did not experience those changes.

George Bakris, lead author of the study and director of the hypertension center at the University of Chicago Medical Center, said a single chiropractic adjustment decreased blood pressure significantly – in fact, the reduction was similar to that among patients taking two blood pressure-lowering drugs simultaneously.

Another study published in the Journal of Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research on April 24, 2012 showed additional evidence that chiropractic care can normalize blood pressure. That study included patients with high blood pressure, low blood pressure and normal blood pressure. Once again, the patients received a chiropractic adjustment to the Atlas vertebra. Blood pressure dropped significantly among those with high blood pressure, dropped slightly for those with normal pressure, and rose among those with low blood pressure.

This year, the Journal of Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research published a study on January 19, which reported the results of chiropractic adjustment on a 55-year-old male who had suffered from hypertension for more than 20 years. He was unable to manage it successfully with medication. He was followed for seven months after a single upper cervical chiropractic adjustment, and his blood pressure went from 180/110 to 136/82. This occurred without any change in the patient’s diet or weight, and after eliminating all his medications.

The spine, which houses the nervous system, is the communications center of the body. A misaligned spine can lead to all sorts of maladies, from back pain to ear infections, asthma and fatigue. It’s like having the wheels of your automobile out of alignment. Your car doesn’t run efficiently, and your tires wear out prematurely on Las Vegas roads. Similarly, a spine that is out of alignment impairs your body’s ability to function at its peak.

Corrective care chiropractors such as Dr. Jason Jaeger of Aliante Integrated Physical Medicine (previously Aliante Chiropractic) in Las Vegas aims to realign the spine back to health.

Aliante Integrated Physical Medicine is among only a handful of health centers in the United States specializing in all aspects of your health, from medical and preventative care to Chiropractic BioPhysics®.

Spinal Misalignment: Source of Most Disease | Las Vegas Chiropractor

Las Vegas Chiropractor Back Pain FatigueSpinal Misalignment: Source of Most Disease | Las Vegas Chiropractor

Most Las Vegas residents woke up this morning with high hopes of living the life they once enjoyed. They were cautiously optimistic that they won’t run out of energy halfway through the day, or experience headaches, migraines, back pain, fibromyalgia symptoms, high blood pressure, acid reflux, or allergies; but it was short-lived.

If you are like so many others in Las Vegas, you’ve forgotten how it feels to go through the day pain-free, disease-free, and symptom-free. You’ve forgotten just how well you used to sleep, how energetic you used to be, and how happy you once were.

What Went Wrong?

Chiropractors have known this for years; a healthy spine and nervous system leads to more energy and less pain throughout the body. What’s even more amazing is that proper nerve flow to the organs – such as the stomach, the heart, the lungs, etc. – enables them to heal from disease, and function the way they were designed to.

Unfortunately, most Las Vegas residents suffer with some sort of spinal misalignment – a condition brought about due to poor postural habits, auto accidents, injuries, or birth trauma – without knowing it. Spinal misalignment refers to a condition where one or more vertebrae are shifted out of place ever so slightly, putting excessive pressure on the delicate nerves that send nerve energy from the brain, into the vital organs of the human body.

Without proper nerve flow, various organs of the body start to dysfunction – and eventually go into a state of disease.

Most people don’t know their spines are out of alignment, because pain is often the last symptom; however, fatigue and disease are one of the first.

The Chiropractic BioPhysics Difference

Aliante Integrated Physical Medicine (previously Aliante Chiropractic) in Las Vegas Nevada, is among only 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, scientific, and results-oriented corrective care technique in the world.

Advanced Chiropractic BioPhysics practitioners – like Dr. Jason Jaeger of Las Vegas – aim to not only realign the spine back into health, but more importantly take pressure off the delicate nerves in the neck and back. This ensures full nerve flow to the various organs and limbs of the body, which start the healing process almost immediately.

If you or a loved one is suffering with fatigue, pain, fibromyalgia, headaches, or migraines in the Las Vegas metropolitan area, please consider contacting Aliante Integrated Physical Medicine. Our team of experienced corrective chiropractors, physical therapists, nurses and doctors can help you eliminate the cause, instead of just masking it.

Fatigue and Poor Posture | Las Vegas Chiropractor

Las Vegas Chiropractor FatigueCorrelation Between Fatigue and Poor Posture | Las Vegas Chiropractor

How many times have you run out of energy halfway through your day? How many times have you contemplated going home for a power nap, or find yourself daydreaming about another trip down to the coffee shop – but have no energy to get out of your chair?

Unfortunately, most Americans don’t think twice about looking into the root cause of fatigue. They simply mask it with high caffeine beverages, sweets, or blame it on another night of poor sleep – instead of trying to figure out what is causing it, and why.

Hundreds of Las Vegas area residents visit their medical doctors, and find out that there is seemingly nothing wrong with them; at least nothing wrong with their blood work, internal organs, or diet. So what could be causing the constant fatigue?

Studies over the past few decades have pointed the finger at spinal misalignment as the root cause of most fatigue or fibromyalgia cases. That’s because poor posture or a misaligned spine (as a result of poor postural habits, car accidents, sports injuries, or even birth trauma) exert excessive pressure on the delicate nerves flowing out of the spine.

This pressure diminishes vital nerve energy from reaching the limbs and organs, leading to fatigue, pain, discomfort, and eventually disease.

By realigning the spine back to health and eliminating the source of nerve interference, corrective care chiropractors specializing in Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) – the most researched, scientific, and results-oriented chiropractic technique – can restore the flow of nerve energy back to the vital organs.

How Neck Pain May Affect Your Energy | Las Vegas Chiropractor

Las Vegas Chiropractor FatigueHow Neck Pain May Affect Your Energy | Las Vegas Chiropractor

Remember when you used to be able to play with your kids, plan an afternoon of outdoor recreation, or wake up early – refreshed and full of energy? Remember how productive you were at work and school, and still had energy to mow the lawn or go out to the mall? Do you find ourself more and more dependent on caffeine, sugary snacks, and “power naps” just to make it through the day?

Thousands of Las Vegas residents don’t wake up refreshed anymore. Thousands skip out on day trips, vacations, or Sunday walks down the strip. Thousands dread running around at the park with their kids, or going to work.

What if the root cause of all this fatigue was a small misalignment in your neck. Would you get it fixed?

Misalignments in the spine as a result of poor postural habits, car accidents, sports injuries, or even birth trauma exert pressure on the delicate nerves flowing out of it. This pressure diminishes vital nerve energy from reaching the limbs and organs, leading to fatigue, pain, discomfort, and eventually disease.

Corrective care chiropractors specializing in a technique called Chiropractic BioPhysics® or CBP, are trained to realign the spine back to health, eliminate nerve interference, and allow the body to repair the damage caused by years of neglect.

Las Vegas Chiropractor Advice for Santa Claus and You Too!

Chiropractor Las VegasChiropractor Advice for Santa Claus and You Too!

[message_box title=”” color=”green”]

From the Desk of
Dr. Bobby Moore

[/message_box]

After centuries of hauling a heavy bag over one shoulder, eating too many Christmas cookies, slouching in a sleigh while being pulled by nine flying reindeer and living a sedentary lifestyle for 364 days a year, it may be time for Santa Claus to make an “adjustment” to his health says Dr. Bobby Moore of Aliante Integrated Physical Medicine (Aliante IPM) in Las Vegas.

“It is crucial that in order for Santa to be healthy enough to fulfill his mission of delivering gifts to well-behaved children all over the world for many more centuries to come, he needs to start treating his body better. That means making some healthy choices, and a chiropractic adjustment is the perfect place to start,” said Dr. Moore.

Based on observances over the abuse done to his physical being over the centuries, Dr. Moore has determined that Santa Claus may be in danger of suffering from the following lower back and neck problems:

[list type=”check”]

  • Lower back pain caused by obesity, sedentary lifestyle and lifting a bag filled with tons of toys.
  • Back and neck pain caused from tossing the bag of toys over his shoulder.
  • Knee strain from climbing down chimneys and crouching in his sleigh.

[/list]

In order to ensure a healthy Santa, Dr. Moore offers these 10 health tips for him to follow:

[list type=”check”]

  • It is time for Santa to follow a yearlong exercise program. This helps alleviate physical stress placed on his body this time of year. Santa’s big belly is the worst culprit, as it puts unwanted pressure on the muscles, ligaments and tendons in his lower back.
  • Santa needs to equally distribute the weight he carries between both arms. Santa’s elves need to repack his bag to evenly distribute items he is carrying. He should stop trying to be a hero by carrying one enormous bag over his shoulder.
  • Santa should warm up and do a lot of stretching before attempting to lift any packages or items.
  • Santa should also avoid twisting while lifting. Twisting is one of the most dangerous movements for your spine, especially while lifting.
  • Santa should make sure to bend his knees when attempting to lift these packages.
  • Santa should check the weight before attempting to lift any packages. He can do so by pushing the object lightly or moving it with his feet to see how easily it moves. Small items sometimes are heavier than the big ones. If you can’t move it, get a bunch of elves to help.
  • When sitting in his sleigh, Santa needs to keep his knees slightly higher than his hips, with his head up and back straight.
  • Santa also needs to avoid rolling his shoulders in the sleigh or slouching.
  • According to legend, Santa sleeps on his back with his whiskers out of the covers. Sleeping on one’s back puts approximately 50 pounds of pressure on your spine. Santa should consider placing a pillow under his knees while lying on his back or sleep on his side with a pillow between his knees.
  • Before starting an exercise program, Santa should consult with his doctor at Aliante IPM in Las Vegas before beginning.
