March 2015

Winter 2015 may go down in history as one of the coldest on record! Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, so we may be in for a bit more of the frosty temps. If the weather is getting you down, make a conscious choice to find the good in the season - you'll be much more content this way! And if joint pain or stiffness flares up during the cold spells, make sure you stretch daily and stop in for an adjustment. Movement is life and chiropractic care can help keep you in motion!

Only 111 days left till summer! Now is the perfect time to start getting in shape - here are some apps that can help!

March is Brain Injury Awareness Month

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a physically and emo- tionally challenging condition with potentially long-term consequences. No two injuries are the same, but most injuries affect thinking, language, learning, emotions, behavior, sensation and motor skills. TBI can cause epilepsy and increase the risk for disorders that become more prevalent with age such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. It is a serious condition often called the "silent epidemic" in part because TBI is often undiagnosed and misunderstood by peer and families of the injured person.

A brain injury affects the function of neurotransmitters, the brain's messengers, which can alter the way a person thinks, acts, feels and moves. Chiropractic neurological care can help reduce interference in the nervous system, enabling the body and brain to function optimally; neurofeedback training helps retrain abnormal brain-wave patterns caused by brain injuries, providing long-lasting, for some even permanent, relief of many symptoms. Both are important components in a TBI recovery plan.

Dr. Reynolds specializes in TBI and utilizes these unique therapies and other non-drug modalities such as the Epley Maneuver to help his patients regain their health and increase the quality of their lives. Read below about the journey to recovery from Dr. Reynolds' TBI patient Aaron.

Back Pain? Acupuncture Provides Relief in Just 15 Minutes!

A recent study of emergency department patients complaining of acute lower back pain reveals that acupuncture immediately and significantly relieves lower back pain. Data from the controlled study showed that patients receiving acupuncture experienced significant pain relief within only 15 minutes of treatment! Follow up conducted three days post treatment confirmed lasting results!

Acupuncture helps release natural painkillers that can be 10-200 times more potent than morphine and helps stimulate the body's built-in healing mechanisms. If you're experiencing back pain, come in for a visit with our licensed acupuncturist Lori Fortunato, LAc. Working directly with the body's natural flow of energy or "chi," Lori can help release tension and restore balance naturally, without side effects that are common with medication.
