Frog Soup

In order to prepare frog soup you’ll need a few things:Frog Soup

A live frog

A kettle or pot

Water

Now if you try to boil the water and throw the live frog into the soup, he’ll immediately jump out, but if your clever you’ll put the frog into a pot of cold water and gradually turn up the heat and he wont notice the rise in temperature till its to late and you’ll have frog soup…

This is allot like your spines, we notice the major accidents that cause us pain, but allow the slow process of degeneration to creep up on us until its too late and the neuro-surgeon says “your going to lose the ability to use your arm in the next 2 years if you dont’ have surgery”… aka your a dead frog in boiling water or Frog Soup…

The national average age for a chiropractic patient’s first visit is 47 years old. How long have you been seeing the dentist? What would your teeth look like if you saw your dentists for the first time at age 47? Why then do you wait till pain sets in or you have a traumatic accident before seeing a spine specialist – a Chiropractor? Your spine is a living thing that requires your attention.

Is back and neck pain natural? What causes it? How do you get it to go away?

If you said “it’ll go away on its own or Alieve, Tylenol, Advil, Asprin – then your in line with Eisenstein’s Definition of Insanity “doing the same thing over and over again and thinking your going to get a different result” because you never actually correct the bio-mechanical problem, you just cover it up…

By the time a child is 5 years old they’ll have 200 significant fall, occasionally these falls injure the bio-mechanics of the spine and need to be addressed just like cavities need to be filled. (I was first checked at 3 days o;d and I’ll compare my x-rays with any 44 year old male, who’s ready to take the challenge, I have over 128 stitches in my head from 4 car accidents, rugby, skateboarding, etc.)

If you’ve neglected your body for years, get up from the computer now and call your local chiropractor to be evaluated…. Are you perpetuating the Frog Soup mentality in your children?

Your health is our concern,

Chiropractic Adjustments and Tinnitus

Chiropractic adjustments are popular and successful management options for reversible functional disorders of the neck (cervical spine) and other areas of the spine. Some studies have demonstrated that such adjustments can relieve tinnitus.3236

TinnitusAlcantara et al.34 described how chiropractic adjustments could reduce tinnitus, vertigo and hearing loss in a patient with cervical subluxation and temporomandibular disorder. Symptoms eventually ceased after nine sessions. Kessinger et al.32 documented clinical changes after chiropractic sessions in a geriatric patient with tinnitus, vertigo, hearing loss and cervical alterations from C3 to C7. Throughout the sessions, the patient’s symptoms were alleviated and structural/functional improvements were also evident through radiographic examination.

 

upper cervicalIn contrast to classical chiropractic adjustment, Arlen’s atlas adjustment  is performed without traction, rotation or extension of the cervical spine.37 By means of irritation and tension of the posterior cervical muscle, one might increase the afferent input to the vestibular nuclei in the brain stem, which might give rise to tinnitus.37 Thus, reduction of the tension via atlas therapy seems to lower the proprioception and nociception output, leading to normalization of the flow of information to the brain stem, and, as a consequence, tinnitus improvement.

It seems that some somatosensory tinnitus could be alleviated by correcting the misalignment of the cervical spine through chiropractic adjustment, especially in the upper cervical region. Such alignment might allow the entire spine to reposition itself and possibly correct the input of the region through the somatosensory pathway on the auditory system.

According to Kaute,37 many other methods are used to relax the neck muscles, with some success in treating tinnitus: the Alexander method, autogenous training, the Brügger method, craniosacral adjustment and Feldenkrais. All act on the same point – the posterior neck muscle.

Nevertheless, as much as this topic has been receiving more attention in the current literature, it still needs further clarification.
