Chiropractic Care Effective In Managing Leg and Arm Pain

A recent study finds chiropractic care highly effective for patients suffering from lower back (lumbar) and neck (cervical) radiculopathy - pain, numbness and/or tingling extending down the arm(s) or leg(s) due to nerve irritation related to the spine. In this study consisting of 162 patients, each received chiropractic manipulation, neuromobilization and exercise stabilization. Of the 162 patients, 10 unresolved cases were referred for epidural steroid injections, 10 were referred for further medical medication management and 3 cases were referred to undergo surgery. However, a total of 86 percent had resolution of their primary radicular complaints following their chiropractic care and thus were not required to received injections, medication management or surgery. According to the authors of the study, "The conservative management strategy we reviewed in our sample produced favorable outcomes for most of the patients with radiculopathy. The strategy appears to be safe." If you or another is suffering from pain, numbness or tingling in the extremities, contact your local chiropractor for a thorough evaluation. As this study demonstrates, chiropractic care is effective in many cases of cervical and lumbar radiculopathy and can be an appropriate, safe, non-invasive therapy for many.

Exercise, It Really Is A Wonder Drug

First-time marathon runners can reap significant cardiovascular benefits, according to British researchers.† In the British "Marathon Study," subjects consisted of 138 untrained healthy individuals aged 21 to 69 years.† Each underwent 6 months of training for the upcoming London Marathons in 2016 and 2017.† Subjects were assessed prior to initiating their marathon training and again 2-weeks post marathon.† The researchers found that training for and completing the marathons, even at relatively low exercise intensity, reduced central blood pressure and aortic stiffness - equivalent to a 4-year reduction in vascular age.† Moreover, greater rejuvenation was observed in older, slower individuals.

Most Parents Have Issues With Their Teenís Gaming Habits

According to a new study, almost 9 out of 10 parents agree that their teens are spending too much time playing video games.† Moreover, more than half of parents set gaming time limits for their teens.† Parents expressed some of their most serious concerns as being the negative impact on their teenís overall sleep, family and peer relationships and overall school performance.† So what are parents to do?† First, experts suggest that parents do not attempt to suggest that gaming is a sort of mindless waste of time.† Teens can feel strongly that many games are complex, challenging and include valuable lessons.† Trying to convince them that all games are bad and a waste of time can backfire. Instead, parents should consider the "everything in moderation" approach.† Set reasonable guidelines and explain gaming limitations and restrictions are being done for the purpose of safety, health, relationship and school interests.† These are very specific reasons and more easily accepted than the "all games are bad" approach.† Another strategy is for parents to consider participating in some video game playing with their teens.† According to the researchers, "Showing your teen you are interested in what they are playing and want to understand their interest can help in communicating healthy limits. In some situations, games can serve as a point of connection and occasionally may be structured as a family activity to open the door to other conversations and foster interaction."
