Dental Hygiene Vs. Spinal Hygiene

Why is it that we take better care of our teeth than we do our spines? Dental hygiene is when we go for routine dental checkups regardless of mouth pain to make sure that there is no tooth decay, gum recession, plaque buildup, etc…. So why do we ignore our spine health until our “back goes out”? Our spine is the armor that protects our spinal cord. We usually take our spinal health for granted until we have symptoms such as severe pain, numbness, tingling, weakness, loss of organ/bowel/bladder function and even paralysis.

Think of Chiropractic as practicing spinal hygiene. Our spine is healthy when it moves properly. Regular Chiropractic checkups can help you get more pain free mileage out of your spine. Our spinal discs are nourished by the movement of each vertebrae. When we have an injury, joint/muscle stiffness, scoliosis, live a sedentary lifestyle, etc… our spines lose mobility and do not pump fluid into the discs (imbibition). This causes the discs to eventually dehydrate (desiccation) which can lead to painful tearing of the disc, disc herniations and arthritis of the spine. Become more aware of your spine health and your back will not get on your NERVES!

FAU Team Chiropractor

I am proud to announce that I have been brought on by Florida Atlantic University to been their Team Chiropractor. It is very rewarding working with athletes because they have so many different types of injuries that when any patient comes into our office (whether they are an athlete or not) we have probably seen their type of injury before and have experience treating it.

Many of my patients call this "the magic tape" because it is unlike any other tape. Their are many imitators that claim to know how to use the tape but at SCNHS were are certified kinesiotape practioners trained from the inventor Dr. Kenzo Kase. The tape is worn by many professional athletes but can be used to relax tight muscles, strengthen weak muscles and help reduce pain from bruising and swelling for non athletes as well. We use kinesiotape as a adjunct to our other very effective therapies to help provide treatment long after your visit.
