Don't Let Travel Be Pain in"Prolonged sitting can wreak havoc on your body," says Dr. Bautch,
president of the American Chiropractic Association's Council on Occupation Health.
"Even if you travel in the most comfortable car or opt to fly first class,
certain pressures and forces from awkward positions can result in restricted
blood flow. One of the biggest insults to your system from prolonged sitting
is the build up of pressure in the blood vessels in your lower legs."Children and Chiropractic--Growing PainsOne great joy of parenting is watching our children grow. We even take a sweet-sour
pleasure when they begin to outgrow their four-month-old "new" jeans! But, what
happens to our feelings when growing seems to be accompanied by mysterious "growing
pains"?Straight from the Shoulder Info on Arm PainNo one would disagree that shoulders and arms are pretty convenient things
to have. The Designer of the human body made the shoulders with special kinds
of joints that allow wide ranging, rotating movement. Not only can we swing
a hand we're holding, but also we can wave "hello" with both arms thrown over
our heads in greeting. Our arms are beautifully made to carry tools and babies,
reach into a car's interior or raise a flag or fork.ArthritisRecently, one of our chiropractic sources printed a very interesting article
reviewing a study published in the "Annals of Internal Medicine".
The outcome of this study may be very useful to you or someone you know.
