Postpartum Back Pain

One of the most common problems with late term pregnancy is low back pain. It starts out as an insignificant discomfort, growing day by day until the pain is almost constant. No sitting position provides relief, and even sleeping becomes uncomfortable. For many women, their pain is resolved upon delivery and they go home with their new baby with no memory of their pain. For other new moms, however, they find dealing with the changes a new baby brings to their household more challenging because their back pain remains unresolved, sometimes even intensified. It’s hard to be happy about your newly expanded family when you are dealing with chronic pain.

The Mayo Clinic developed the RUSI, otherwise known as the Rehabilitative Ultrasound Imaging device. This a radiation free physical therapy tool that allows the therapist to see which muscles are working and which ones are not. With back pain affecting between 50 and 75% of all women, the RUSI can be an important tool in their recovery.

Pain is generally triggered by having weak core muscles. Pregnancy complicates the situation in several ways. First, because there is decreased muscle tone and it is very difficult to exercise the abdominal muscles during late pregnancy, a woman’s core becomes noticeably weaker and less toned. The growing baby further weakens and sometimes even tears muscle tissue because the mother’s body can’t keep up with how quickly her child is developing. After delivery, the mother might seek assistance from a physical therapist to help her to strength her core muscles and the RUSI safely guides a physical therapist to help the new mom rebuild her core, strengthening and healing previously torn muscle.

This approach is excellent in postpartum care as well as other people experiencing low back pain. The device helps develop core strength better than most other approaches because the therapist can see which muscles are being activated by a particular exercise and which ones are not. New exercises are then suggested. By exercising different abdominal muscles, a woman’s core strength improves. As with all situations surrounding pregnancy, be sure to check with your doctor before using the ultrasound approach to manage chronic postpartum back pain.

Treatment and Prevention of Muscle Cramps during Exercise

6253806401_9a9cd9a555Muscle cramps that are caused by exercise can be very painful and can cause athletes to drop out of competitions.  Muscle cramps can happen in any types of sports and are usually a result of muscle fatigue, a loss of electrolytes or dehydration.

Cramps are not limited to sports, they can happen even to people who are not involved in any type of sports.  Repetitive cramps can be healed by a chiropractor by aligning the vertebrae correctly in the spine using various techniques.

Causes of Cramps

The American College of Sports Medicine published a review on the causes of muscle cramps during exercise – two possible causes were identified that lead to muscle cramps.

The first was credited to muscle fatigue.  Neuromuscular systems are embedded into muscles to allow control of contraction of the muscles. When this system malfunctions, contraction of muscle takes place and then causes the cramps.

Muscles that are regularly used, such as those of an athlete or a person with a very active lifestyle, are at a higher risk of experiencing cramps or spasms.

The second major cause is a result of an excessive fluid loss from the body (sweat), which decreases the body’s electrolytes level.  This depletes the body of sodium.

Body’s Natural Cooling System

The body is designed to cool itself by sweating when body temperature starts to rise beyond normal levels.   The loss of electrolytes due to sweating can cause depletion of body’s electrolytes and if it is not replenished properly, it will cause cramps.

What are Electrolytes?

Electrolytes are minerals including sodium, chloride, magnesium and potassium. They are dissolved in the body and directly control the required muscle contractions and nerve conductions.

Consuming bananas to treat muscle cramps has no solid ground and there is no evidence to support such a remedy.

Treating Muscle Cramps

– Fatigued Muscles

Treatment of muscle cramps depends upon the initial cause.  For those people who experience a muscle cramp due to a strenuous workload such as exercise or sports, chiropractors recommend treatments such as a massage, application of cold packs to the affected muscles and passive stretching.

Proper rest must be given to those muscles which have experienced an overload due to stress.

– Cramps due to Loss of Electrolytes

For those people who suffer from cramps as a result of excessive sweating and a deficit of sodium, the same methods of treatment can be used besides replenishing the lost fluid levels.

The 3 most Common Sports Injuries and How to reduce their Risk

images (20)Over 200 million Americans participating in a sport at any given time, so there are bound to be sports injuries. Every year, up to 5% of the American population incurs a sports injury and has to rest at home while the injury heals. Chiropractors know that this number can be reduced significantly. Here is a closer look at the 3 most common sports injuries and how the risk of attainment can be reduced.

1 – Traumatic Injuries

Traumatic sports injuries are probably the most common types of injuries in sports. They are frequently seen in a variety of contact sports such as rugby, football and ice hockey. Possibly the most common of traumatic sports injuries, the main reason why people see chiropractors, are sprains.

When muscles are stretched beyond their limits, they cause pain. Stretched too far and they can tear. Chiropractors work with people to not only help treat these injuries but reduce their frequency. Using a variety of techniques, they help improve the joints, ensuring they can withstand more stress and perform better as well.

2 – Repetitive Stress Injuries

In many sports such as cricket, table tennis, football, running and weightlifting, players repeat a number of movements and stress the same area of their body. As such, these people are prone to a number of injuries classified as repetitive stress/motion sports injuries. In part, considering the nature of these sports, these injuries are inevitable. However, their frequency can be reduced.

Chiropractors work with athletes of such sports and help them reduce their risk of injury. How? Chiropractors simply use a number of techniques to help strengthen their joints. As a result, a stronger joint is less prone to injury.

3 – Soft Tissue Injuries

Soft tissue sports injuries are regarded as a separate type of injury as they usually occur when a severe sprain has been incurred, usually coupled with a contusion. Such an injury involves localized swelling and the production of a lot of heat. However, chiropractors know that if left untreated for too long, it takes quite a while to heal.

As such, chiropractors work to reduce the swelling as fast as possible, allowing them to properly manipulate the affected area and help reduce pain and enable faster recovery.

In many cases, sports injuries are inevitable. However, according to many medical experts, including chiropractors, their frequency can be significantly reduced.

HCG, Size 16 to Size 6

HCG Injections Support Successful Medical Weight Loss

Be sure and check out some of our other blogs, Trish is on our 18 week fast track our goal is 80 Pounds!!

Our program has helped patients lose up to 45 pounds in 45 days with an average loss of one to three pounds per day. Under the guidance of our medical provider, HCG injections could do the same for you!

Drop the Pounds Today with the HCG Diet

hcg injections

HCG is a naturally occurring hormone that is produced during pregnancy. Recent research has found that HCG is effective for promoting natural weight loss. In combination with a nutritionally balanced low calorie diet, these supplements help trigger the brain to burn stored fat, melting off the pounds.

Here is a real patient who has done HCG she answers the question How fast can you get to a normal weight, her story is amazing!  This stuff really works!

How fast can you get to a normal weight?

Obviously this will depend on how much you have to lose at least in part.  If you have 100lbs to lose, it will take you longer than someone who has 50 lbs to lose.

But sometimes I get questions from people who’ve seen that I’ve done 5 rounds of hCG and they wonder if everyone needs to do that many rounds to get to a healthy weight.

In short, nope.

2 rounds of hCG, both about 40 days each, was all I technically needed to look “normal” to the eye folks- started in February 2011, and by July I looked like the after photo below.

A 43 lb weightloss, and a change in clothing size from size 16 to size 6 was accomplished in two 40 day rounds of the hCG Diet.

So why have I done 5 rounds then?  You may discover, as time goes on and you try out the hCG Diet that,

1.) You aren’t perfect.  Most people who undertake a life change to become fit and healthy experience slip-ups along that path and I’m no exception.  The 2nd round that got me to the above photo at size 6?  Just after that I totally wigged out and ate my way with sugar laden foods all the way back up to 143 lbs (from 129lbs).  So I had to re-do round 2, which I did on round 3.  Technically speaking, if I had done everything perfect from the start (which I’ll be truthful here- very few accomplish this- but you know what?  It’s the end result that matters, not how long it takes) it would have taken only 2 rounds to get to a normal weight.

2.) The hCG Diet is so effective, you realize halfway through that you can have a better body than you were originally going to “settle” for.  I remember thinking at size 16, first starting the hCG Diet, ‘boy, if I could just get to 130 lbs and a size 8 I’ll be so content and just leave it at that.’  Even though being just over 5? tall I could certainly get smaller than that and be even healthier, most of us know and have experienced that  losing weight is typically very difficult and takes a long time, so that’s why I didn’t want to set my hopes too high.  Many many people who have successfully gone through their hCG Diet journey have changed their “ultimate goal” when they realize how fast and effective the hCG Diet really is.  This has been the case with me.

So I screwed up round 2 and had to re-do it with round 3.  So one round fits into the “I’m not perfect” reason for a round.  At the end of round 3 I was 122 lbs and a size 4!

How can it get any better than that you may ask?

Well, to me it wasn’t just about being thin– I wanted to be fit and physically active as it’s always been in my nature to be.  So I started lifting weights and doing interval cross training at Crossfit- I put on 12 pounds of muscle in this past year– 12 lbs of muscle is great, but of course still does take up space on my body, so I used 2 rounds of hCG to lose more fat between it.  So the last 2 rounds of hCG I’ve basically been just “tweaking” and “fine-tuning”  my body-  those 2 rounds fit into the “I realized I can do better than normal- I can actually get very fit and active and lower my body fat percent with hCG” reason.

As an example, at 129 lbs I wore a size 6 and was not physically fit at all and had a body fat percent of about 28%, and now I’m close to 129 lbs again, but I’m a size 2/4 and am extremely physically fit and have a body fat percent of 19%.  Same weight, totally different body composition- a lot more of me is muscle and a lot less of me is fat now, at the same weight.  That’s what those last 2 rounds of hCG were about, and something I’m very proud of.

 

Yoga Isn’t What You Think

Plank.jpgAs we talk about “doing yoga” we find that people are either 100% on board and have a yoga practice themselves (even if it has been two years since they hit their mat) or they give you a funny look and say, “That’s where you chant on your head, right?”

Sigh. Yes, I’ve been to yoga classes where there has been chanting. And yes, there have been classes where some students have managed a very respectable headstand. I don’t recall one where both have happened simultaneously, but I suppose it could. But the comment completely sidetracked the conversation where I was sharing the benefits of my yoga experiences with a friend.

As our non-yoga lover left, I watched his back and wanted to sit him down and explain a few things about yoga to him. Since I lacked both the courage and physical strength to do so, I’m going to write down a few things about yoga I wanted to share with him.

And I’ve learned that if there is one person out there with the chanting/headstand opinion, there are likely a few others, so this is for you too.

Number One. Yoga is NOT for sissies. It is truly much harder than it looks. The peaceful expressions on the models in a yoga magazine or on the cover of a yoga DVD might give the impression of this being an easy workout, but I’m here to tell you that you will use muscles you didn’t even know you had. You will also sweat. A lot.

Many who are new to yoga say, “That’s a whole lot harder than it looks!” Those of us who understand, simply smile and nod. Yes, it is. Yoga uses the entire body and even well-conditioned athletes find their first session in a yoga class to be challenging. As a mind-body experience it entails so much more than just telling yourself, “Only five more miles.”

The main goal behind yoga is to make that mind/body connection through a series of asanas or postures combined with breathing techniques to help.

Number Two. You do NOT have to have the ability to stand on your head or put your heels behind your ears before you start yoga. Probably one of the most common excuse for not doing yoga is, “I’m not flexible enough.”

The whole idea of yoga is to become flexible.

Each person who comes to their yoga mat comes as a fresh start. Even those who have practiced yoga for years find a fresh start every time they come to their mat because they may have pain, stiffness, an injury, or even a mental concern. All of these will change your yoga practice.

Every yoga session is done at your own pace. Never compare yourself to anyone else in the room. NEVER! You are an individual, and your job is to combine your mind and your body. Focus on what you need.

Number Three. Welcome help from your instructor. Most yoga studio instructors have over 200 hours of training in addition to a deep understanding of body mechanics. They can see when your pose is working against you and can give you a slight adjustment that makes the entire pose so much easier and better. They are there to help you, coach you, teach you. Use them. That is what is missing when you practice only to a DVD. That is good, but from time to time it is good to have some positive feedback to improve your overall technique.

Give yoga a chance. There is a class available to fit every person out there, from children to seniors. It is a gentle, yet full-body workout that not only tones your muscles but teaches you to also calm your mind.

Causes of Back Pain

10418151535_d230e6de16Back pain may occur due to various reasons; be it a sports injury, pulling a heavy object or a fall/ injury to the spine. If you are suffering from back pain, it would be wise to have a look at some of the common risk factors and causes of back pain before going to the chiropractor.

Risk Factors

The risk of back pain varies in different individuals, depending on their lifestyle. People who work in a mentally stressful job, smoke or go through strenuous physical work are more susceptible to back pain than those who don’t. Other factors such as pregnancy, anxiety, depression and obesity can also lead to this condition. Age is also a factor, as older individuals are at a higher risk than younger ones.

Causes Of Back Pain

Strain

The most common cause of back pain is strained muscles and ligaments, which may be a result of lifting something heavy or a sudden awkward movement. It can also be caused by improper posture due to a bad mattress or sitting position.

Structural Problems

The human body is a complex structure composed of bones, muscle, ligaments and joints. A fault in any of these can cause numerous problems, including back pain. Some particular structural problems that may affect the back are as follows:

Arthritis

Arthritis can cause various joint problems in the hips and lower back.

Bulging And Ruptured Disks

The vertebra in our spine is cushioned by a disk, so a ruptured disk would result in more pressure on the nerves, resulting in back aches. A bulging disk would put even more pressure on the nerves.

Sciatica

A bulging disk can also press on a nerve in the spine, causing a shooting pain through the buttocks and down the legs.

Curvature Of The Spine

An unnatural curvature of the spine can cause the space around the spinal cord to narrow, causing back pains.

Osteoporosis

A vertebra fracture can be caused by the bones becoming more brittle.

Spinal Cancer

A growth or tumor on the spine may press against a nerve.

Infections

Infection of the nerves (shingles) and spine may also cause pains.

Cauda Equine Syndrome

The growth of nerve roots at the bottom of the spinal cord can cause a dull pain, as well as lack of feeling in the upper buttocks.

Spinal Disc Herniation – Disc Injuries and Chiropractic Therapy

290644114_fa50ce417a (1)Spine and disc injuries are more common in individuals who lie in the 40 to 60 age bracket. While young individuals who engage in different strenuous work activities (which involve the lifting of heavy loads and operating on machinery for long hours) experience spine, neck and disc injuries which cause great pain. These injuries cause hindrance in the movement of the back and the neck, and are aggravated by continuous involvement in different laborious activities. Spinal disc herniation is a medical condition experienced by individuals because of over-exertion on the back and neck parts of the body. Chiropractors offer different treatment methods to relieve the pain and facilitate movement of the affected individual.

What Is Spinal Disc Herniation?

Spinal disc herniation is a medical condition in which a tear appears on the outer fibrous layer of the vertebra disc, which causes the inner soft nucleus material to bulge and squeeze out from the torn area of the disc.

The tear in the disc is usually attributed to old age in individuals, but may also be caused because of any trauma, straining and lifting injuries, experienced by a young individual, because of different work related and other everyday activities. The nature of the tear in the disc might cause inflammation in the surrounding area, which might put pressure on the nerves, resulting in pain for the individual. The bulging out of the inner pulpous material from the ruptured or torn disc results in a pressure on the spine and disc which causes extreme pain.

Spinal disc herniation is also called a slipped disc condition, though the disc is securely intact in between the vertebra. Individuals suffering from a minor case of spinal disc herniation are able to recover within a few weeks, with suitable rest. But, in cases of extreme damage to the spinal disc, the patient sometimes requires surgical treatment, which does not always provide good results.

Patients with acute spinal disc herniation in the upper, central or lower part of their spinal cord require physical therapy and medications for quick recovery.

Chiropractic Therapy for Spinal Disc Injuries

Chiropractors provide treatment and therapy for the effective recovery of individuals suffering from different forms of spine and disc injuries. They mobilize and manipulate the muscles of the spine and the neck, adjusting the different joints and muscles, to relieve the individual of the excruciating pain experienced because of the different musculoskeletal disorders.

Testosterone Restoration Therapy

Testosterone Restoration Therapy for Men from Defy Medical in Tampa FL

What is Testosterone?

Testosterone is a hormone produced in the body which helps to;

  • Maintain reproductive tissues
  • Stimulate sperm production
  • Stimulate and maintain sexual function
  • Increase muscle mass and strength
  • Maintain bone strength
  • Decrease risk of disease and death

What should my level be?

Just like your cholesterol or blood pressure, there is a numerical range of testosterone levels that are considered normal. The brain and the testicles work together to keep testosterone in this range. When levels of testosterone are below normal, the brain signals the testicles to make more. When testosterone levels reach a normal level, the brain signals the testicles to make less. There are two types of Testosterone tests which need to be performed in order to have an accurate read. 1) Total Testosterone measures the amount of testosterone in your blood. This measurement represents the amount of T your body is producing 2) Free Testosterone measures the amount of testosterone that can be used by the body.

RC Medical Center targets the upper normal range, known as the optimal range, of Testosterone (T) with special attention to Free Testosterone levels.

Forgetting something?
Checking Estrogen levels, specifically Estradiol, is just as important as your testosterone level. Yes, men have estrogen too. Managing estrogen is necessary for proper TRT.testosterone restoration treatment at defy medical

Risks and effects of having Low Testosterone

  1. Increased risk for heart disease
  2. Increased risk for type 2 diabetes
  3. Loss of muscle and loss of strength
  4. Increase in body fat
  5. Erectile Dysfunction
  6. Decreased Sexual Performance
  7. Increased risk for depression and anxiety
  8. Fatigue

Is it safe?

When properly done, TRT in both men and women has been repeatedly shown to be safe. There is no scientific evidence that testosterone causes prostate cancer or heart disease. To the contrary, there is overwhelming scientific evidence that testosterone protects against heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and Alzheimer’s dementia. However, if you already have prostate cancer, there is a possibility that TRT may accelerate the cancer’s growth and is, therefore, inadvisable. In women, side effects of acne, unwanted hair growth, or deepening voice, can easily be avoided with proper dosing, frequent lab monitoring, and follow-up visits.

Benefits of Restoring T to Optimal Levels

  9. Defy Statistics – In one of the largest studies of its kind, this study shows a decline in American men’s testosterone levels during the last 20 years. The decrease is not related to normal aging or to health and lifestyle factors known to influence testosterone levels. Testosterone concentrations dropped about 1.2% per year from 1987 to 2004, or about 17% overall. The downward trend was seen in both individuals and the entire population over time.
    Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, 2007. 92:196-202.
  10. Achieve Optimal Performance – Testosterone Improves Sexual Function, Mood, Muscle Strength and Body Composition Parameters in Hypogonadal Men. Subjects did not exercise, yet their lean body mass and fat mass improved. Improvement was correlated with serum level of Testosterone obtained. Study showed that these benefits were not, however, obtained with testosterone patches (which are too weak for most patients).
  11. Increase Energy – Low testosterone levels is associated with fatigue. Using testosterone restoration increases one’s sense of well being. Many patients were also able to stop using antidepressants after testosterone restoration.
