Happy Valentine’s Day 2018 Free Blood Pressure Check

Happy-Valentines-Day
Regardless of whether you are in a relationship or not may you be covered in Love today.

From it’s tragic origin Valentine’s day has evolved into a sweet and love filled holiday.  This holiday

has evolved to include gifts to pets as well in the recent years.  Millions of cards are exchanged and tons of chocolate as well.

This holiday is celebrated all over the world in some form or another.

How about the XOXO often used? Many believe the X symbol became synonymous with the kiss in medieval times. People who couldn’t write their names signed in front of a witness with an X. The X was then kissed to show their sincerity.

As a community service and the local member of the Foundations for Wellness Professionals our office offers a FREE blood pressure check.

According to the American Red Cross 1 out of 4 people have high blood pressure and millions go undetected each year.  The leading cause of death in the US is heart disease.

Our goal is to help reduce this in our community.

If you have a question about your blood pressure or would like to have it checked please feel free to contact our office.

May you have a happy and healthy Valentine’s Day

Yours for Better Health, Dr. Shapero

SpineChiropractic
Today I wanted to share with you the top 10 chiropractic research studies of 2013. We are dedicated to bringing current and pertinent health and wellness information to you. May this year bring better or continued good health.

1. Immediate Benefits of Chiropractic Visible on MRI:For the first time, researchers used MRI to document changes in spinal gapping immediately after a chiropractic adjustment.

2. AMA Recommends Chiropractic Before Resorting to Surgery: The Journal of the American Medical Association released new guidelines for back pain treatment that encouraged patients to seek chiropractic and physical therapy before resorting to surgery.

3. Chiropractic as Effective as Epidural Injections for Lumbar Disc Herniation: Patients with lumbar disc herniation were randomly assigned to receive either nerve root injections or chiropractic care. Overall, 76% of chiropractic patients reported feeling “better” or “much better” after treatment compared to just 62.5% of injection patients.

4. Chiropractic Lowers Blood Pressure: Hypertensive patients had reduced diastolic blood pressure readings after receiving chiropractic adjustments in a new study.

5. Chiropractic Best Option for SI Joint Pain: Chiropractic care was better than physical therapy or injections of corticosteroids for sacroiliac joint dysfunction.

6. Neck Adjustments Immediately Improve Joint Position Sense: Cervical manipulation was shown to improve joint position sense, which could assist in improving mobility in patients with neck pain.

7. Chiropractic Better than Medical Care Alone for Back Pain: Military personnel with back pain had a significantly better chance of recovery when they received a combined treatment of chiropractic and medical care, compared to those who only received medical care.

8. Spinal Adjustments Relieve Muscle Pain Instantly: Patients with myofascial pain experienced immediate improvements in pressure pain thresholds after receiving chiropractic adjustments.

9. Cervical Disc Herniation Eased by Chiropractic: A study of patients with cervical radiculopathy showed that 85% experienced significant reductions in pain and disability after receiving chiropractic care for three months.

10. Chiropractic Thaws Frozen Shoulder Syndrome: Patients had a 78% improvement in pain after receiving chiropractic care for frozen shoulder syndrome. In another study of patients treated with manipulation under anesthesia, patients had significant reductions in nighttime pain and shoulder stiffness.
