Children and Back Pain: Backpack Considerations

Posted on September 7th, 2016

At Team Health Care Clinic we frequently see children who experience back, neck and shoulder pain that is caused by carrying a backpack that is too heavy or not the right type for a child’s smaller frame. If your child is already experiencing back or neck pain, it is time to see your chiropractor for adjustments to correct any spinal or postural problems.

Now that it’s time to go back to school you may be searching for the perfect backpack for your child. Your kids will be focused on finding the one with a favorite princess or superhero on it.  What you may not know is that it is so much more than that.  Sadly about 7,000 children visit the ER each year because of backpack related injuries (strains, sprains, dislocations and fractures).Kids at school (Continue Reading…)

Gluten Sensitivity Without Celiac Disease

Posted on August 29th, 2016

Traditionally gluten problems are thought of as being digestive, particularly damage to the small intestine called celiac disease. However, our work at Team Health Care Clinic has shown that gluten sensitivity can result in many other symptoms, often not related to digestion. Research done at the Columbia University Medical Center has confirmed what we see on a regular basis, namely that wheat and gluten can have far reaching effects on the body.

The researchers at Columbia University studied healthy individuals, celiac patients and individuals with symptoms that they associated with wheat consumption. What these researchers found was evidence of digestive tract damage in the non-celiac wheat sensitive people. Damage to the intestinal barrier  allows for increased absorption of undigested food into the body. This results in increased immune system reaction as well as increased inflammatory changes in the body. They, therefore, established the mechanism for what is being called non-celiac gluten sensitivity. They also noted that abstaining from gluten containing foods for 6 months significantly decreased the inflammatory reaction. (Continue Reading…)

Effective Therapy for Concussion and ADHD: Neurofeedback

Posted on August 18th, 2016

At Team Health Care Clinic, we have a special interest in brain based health concerns such as concussion and ADHD. Neurofeedback and QEEG Brain Map have been found to be effective interventions.

In a study of student athletes who experienced a concussion, researchers reported all continued to have visible damage on a specialized MRI six months after the injury. Especially concerning was that all were deemed recovered in 7 to 10 days, so signs of neurological damage persisted long after concussion symptoms disappeared. This is an important study and will be presented at the upcoming American Academy of Neurology conference. (Continue Reading…)

Recover From Soft Tissue Injury Faster With Graston Technique

Graston technique is a type of instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization. Special steel instruments that fit areas of the body are used to scan parts of the body and treat the local lesions of soft tissue limited motion, adhesions, scar tissue, or edema. (Continue Reading…)

How Concussion Can Destroy Your Gut

The Gut-Brain Connection

At Team Health Care Clinic we  frequently have the opportunity to care for individuals who have experienced traumatic brain injury or concussion. What people don’t often realize is the far reaching ramifications as a result of such injury. One of these areas frequently affected is the gastrointestinal system.

My thank you to Dr. Jill Carnahan, M.D. for a recent article explaining this. She points out in her article something that we see daily in our clinic, that there is a strong connection between the brain and gut. (Continue Reading…)

Natural Solutions for Painful Plantar Fasciitis

Memory problems, poor concentration, mood changes and fatigue can all be signs of brain degeneration. At our chiropractic and wellness clinic we commonly see patients that are struggling with a brain that is not working like it used to.

Often times they want to make excuses for the decline in brain function, and even laugh it off. However, losing brain function is a serious matter and should motivate people to immediate action. The earlier you respond to correcting the problem, the better the chances of fully restoring your brain function.Playing Chess (Continue Reading…)
