Your SmartPhone is Killing Your Neck!

I used to say that half of my practice was made up of people with neck pain.  Of those people, I’d say half were from accidents or injuries and half were from posture.  Well, posture is taking over.  Especially with smart phones and people texting, reading, tweeting, and browsing on their smart phone.  As that head moves forward, the pressure on your neck increases because your head is like a twelve pound bowling ball sitting on the end of a flexible stick.  Gravity pulls it down and the force is more the more it sits in front of your body.  Hold your head up….take a break from the phone.  Great link here

Bulging and Herniated Disc treatment in Lubbock

I’ve had several people comment lately on how they’d love to refer someone to see me for treatment but aren’t sure if I could help them because “they have a bulging disc.” One thing they don’t realize is that I’m an expert in bulging and herniated discs. I am a Certified Decompression Therapy Practitioner through the Kennedy Decompression Technique. This training has allowed me to fully evaluate disc problems in the neck and low back and the proper course of treatment. Several other chiropractors in town have decompression tables but no other doctor has as much training as I do in using the tables effectively. The decompression tables allow me to take pressure off the discs and thus take pressure off of spinal nerves. The treatment is practically pain-free and highly effective. I frequently get referrals for treatment from medical doctors such as pain specialists, general practitioners, and even neurosurgeons. I get referrals from them because I am thorough in my evaluation and straightforward in my care. If I don’t think I can help a person, I won’t waste their time or money. If you or someone you know has a bulging disc, let me see if I can help them before they begin using dangerous drugs or undergo surgery.
