What do Pregnancy, the Olympics, and the NFL have in common?

Pregnancy and delivery are at the top of the list for emotional, chemical, and mechanical stresses a woman will be exposed to. Dysfunction and the inability of the body to adapt can lead to complications that may require more surgical procedures that have significantly longer healing periods after delivery.

The nervous system is the command and control pathway for the brain. All functions are directly related to the ability of the body to feel and adapt to stimuli that are presented through the nervous system. The brain sends out a signal to the area of concern to change the reaction to that specific problem.

At Palmer Chiropractic, we do a complete history and a physical exam that tests for balance and symmetry while looking for areas of concern that can be corrected by an adjustment. An adjustment to the spine and or pelvis can increase the ability of the body to adapt to events to come.  Through our clinical observations with pregnant patients at Palmer Chiropractic, keeping the spine and pelvis in balance has the same effect that we’ve seen in Olympic Athletes and NFL players. Performance is increased with a greater ability to adapt to unforeseen stresses.

Currently the United States Olympic Team employs multiple chiropractors to monitor and correct imbalance in its top atheles (http://www.teamusa.org/resources/usoc-sport-performance/sports-medicine/clinics-staff ).  All but one NFL team employs one or more chiropractors to keep their atheles on the field and perform at an optimum level (http://www.profootballchiros.com/chiropractors/chiropractic-roster-by-team/). With all of these top performers getting this type of care to enhance their performance, has your Obstetrician suggested chiropractic care to you to enhance your possibility for a safer and more natural birth process?

Car Flips in Richmond Hill Ga – In front of Kroger

In front of Kroger on Ford Ave.  in Richmond Hill, Ga a car flipped.

Today a car flipped out in front of kroger and the gas pumps. There didn’t seem to be any serious injuries or loss of life. – Auto accidents cause injuries even at slow speeds. Ignoring the symptoms of soreness and pain, is like ignoring the oil pressure light in your car. By letting it go, you can cause more wear and tear on your disks and facets that lead to degeneration and arthritis.

A low impact auto accident is generally defined as an incident that takes place at speeds less than 10 miles per hour (mph). This type of collision usually causes the least amount of damage to the vehicles involved. Body injuries can result from any accident and that includes ones that occur with vehicles going less than 10 mph. Soft tissue injuries are the most common problem for those involved in a low impact accident.

A motor vehicle accident that takes place at speeds between under 10 mph often brings about little visible damage to the cars involved. Sometimes due to the fact that minimal damage was done to vehicle the injuries to the people in the vehicles are overlooked. This does not mean that bodily injury did not occur to the passengers during the crash.

 While an automobile is built to take a slow 5 to 10 mph crash that is not necessarily true for your body. In a low impact accident a person’s soft tissue can be damaged.The back and neck are the usual problem spots for soft tissue injuries. Soft tissue is basically a person’s ligaments, tendons and muscles. Soft tissue injuries are typically classified as contusions or bruises, sprains or strains.
