Chiropractic Bio Physics

Posted in Accident Recovery, General Chiropractic, Sports Injury Recovery, Wellness Library on October 7, 2015

Your body is more complex than an F-16. Don’t you think it’s time a chiropractor treated you with the technical sophistication your muscular-skeletal and nervous system deserves?

While typical chiropractic is good at restoring movement and relieving pain from your joints, Chiropractic Bio Physics (CBP) takes this science to a new level. Here at the Chiropractic Center at Styertowne, we are active proponents of CBP.

The Goal of CBP and Postural Correction

The goal is nothing short of restoring your neck, spine and pelvis to their optimal shapes. That shape probably isn’t where they are now. But in fact, your posture should be aligned from every angle.

When you’re viewed from the front and side:

  • Your head, ribs and pelvis should align – each according to their natural (and ideal) curve.
  • Your spine should align vertically.

When you move you should feel:

  • Maximum range of motion and good movement.
  • Appropriate muscular strength

Coping with a Pinched Nerve

Posted in Accident Recovery, Sports Injury Recovery on October 10, 2013

A pinched nerve, otherwise known as radiculopathy, is a condition in which nerves are affected and don’t work properly. The nerve root is the major issue, and it can result in pain, numbness, weakness, and issues with muscle control. By better understanding what a pinched nerve is, you can take the steps needed to treat this condition.

Pinched Nerve Causes

Nerves can become pinched for several reasons. A lack of blood flow can result in this problem, or the nerve can be affected by a progressive disease that destroys it either entirely or in part. Excessive pressure caused by nearby tendons, cartilage, muscle, and bones can also result in the pinching of a nerve.

Common Sport Injuries: What You Should Know About a Torn ACL

Posted in General Chiropractic, Sports Injury Recovery, Wellness Library on March 14, 2013

The ACL is the anterior cruciate ligament, and it is located within the knee. Along with the posterior cruciate ligament, or the PCL, this ligament is located inside the knee joint in order to prevent the bottom and top of the knee from moving or sliding. Torn ACLs are common injuries suffered in playing sports, and without a normal functioning ACL, the knee will be unstable and may buckle without warning. Information about the causes, symptoms, and treatment of torn ACLs are discussed below.

Torn ACL Causes

Most ACL injuries occur after trauma, most commonly after a fitness or sport injury. The ligament becomes stretched or can tear when the knee twists and locks at the same time while the foot remains planted. Common sports that see these types of injuries include gymnastics, soccer, football, and basketball.
