New Year’s resolutions, and a chiropractor’s perspective.
2016 has come and went in a blink. The world lost a lot of good people, famous people and not so famous. Many friend’s and foe’s, it seemed to be a hard time on everyone. Looking back with clarity many lost were so young, all were tragedies, few were due to accidents. Many deaths were due to addiction to pain killers.
If you have been to my office you understand that I work well with medical doctors. I send notes and collaborate with the doctors and try to keep our patients off opioids. So this year’s goal is to try and help as many people I can fight their pain without opioids. If it is only through education and giving people options, it doesn’t matter. Simply try help people help themselves. There are alternatives to opioids to treat your pain.
Chiropractic care, massage, yoga, supplements like Turmeric. Medical doctors have meds that are not opioids as well. If you are against the natural or more conservative treatment plan sit down and talk to your doctor about treatments that do not involve opioid medications. For the purpose of this BLOG I will not get into those, really that should be between you and your doctor.
Once again I will recommend the power of sleep. If you have fibromyalgia, back pain, you name the disease; there really are few ailments that won’t benefit from sleep. Do your best to set regular sleep patterns as a new year’s resolution.
Walk. Walking is simple to do, the activity requires no money, you don’t have to buy a gym membership, just walk. Get moving.
Obviously go to the Chiropractor. Chiropractic care is very beneficial for fighting pain and improving your life overall. Chiropractic adjustment increase your range of motion. The adjustment help aleve muscle pain and neuropathy. Chiropractic care is awsome, of course I am biased.
Massage is a great way to aleviate pain. I get massage and you should too. Think of it as an investment in yourself.
Tumeric, helps many people. My wife and I drink it every day. We mix a tablespoon in out coffee. It helps relieve my knee pain.
Glucosamine Sulfate. Glucosamine "Sulfate" is very heplful. I take 2000mg of Glucosamine Sulfate as day. This is not to be confused with Glucosamine HCL. Personaly I have never benefited from Glucosamine HCL so my sugeestion is to use Glucosamine Sulfate.
Alpple Cider Vinegar with Mother. It taste like "ugg" but it helps as well. I admit I get on an apple cidar vinegar kick but often I find myself falling off it. My wife uses it more regulalry.
Well I hope this little BLOG sparked an intrest in you to try something different and keep you away from opiods.
If you need a Chiropractor we are here to help.

Stress at Christmas time.You don’t need me to tell you that this year just flew by and Christmas is here, I guess I just did. Well keep your chin up friends this is supposed to be a joyful time of the year, yet for many of us it is the most stressful. So let’s brush up on what Rolla residents can do to reduce our stress and make this the best time of the year.
First make a list of what you want to accomplish, chores that need to be done, gifts that need to be bought, etc. You need a list. Then get to work on that list. Don’t procrastinate. If things need to be done, clear your calendar and get those things done.
If you need to shop, do it tonight, don’t put it off. Nothing will place more stress on you if you find out tomorrow what you wanted to purchase is sold out.
If your laundry is piling up because you’re doing other things make a plan and start working on it. House needs cleaning, get to work.
Start wrapping now, if you are behind on gift wrapping get some gift bags. They save you time and money.
Schedule a massage for yourself; let the stress melt away with a great massage. I am chiropractor so obviously I will tell you get your spine adjusted. Getting your spine in good working order and being pain free will make your holidays much better. So we got the obvious one out of the way.
Get your sleep, if you are not getting 8 hours a day you are not doing your body right. Busy people need sleep. Sleep doesn’t cost you a dime, so don’t skimp on sleep.
If you are experiencing anxiety do meditation, if you don’t know how to meditate there are some awesome APP’s for your smart phone that help with relaxation and stress. I prefer Andrew Johnson’s Deep-relax. Worth every dime, only cost a few dollars.
Make time for yourself and your friends. Time is your most valuable possession and time with family and friends is the best gift off all.

Conservative treatment for Migraine headaches. Moreland Chiropractic Clinic offers several different treatment options for patients that suffer from Migraine headaches. We find patients that get chiropractic care see great results for their headaches. We typically utilize chiropractic manipulative therapy and home care.
The purpose of this blog post is to help you with your home care plan.Most importantly; if you find that there are known triggers that cause you to have Migraine headaches, avoid them. Agreeably this sounds simple but often the case is not so simple. An example is fluorescent lighting. Yes fluorescent lighting triggers many people’s headaches, avoiding these lights at home is easy. Avoiding them at work or in public is not as easy. Easier triggers to avoid are using certain cleaners, foods, perfumes etc. Simply avoiding these triggers helps so AVOID them.
If you have been instructed to do home exercises, and if you are a patient in our office you moist likely have, do your exercises. These exercises help increase your pain free active range of motion. They can help restore your normal lordodic curve to your cervical spine. They also help give you control of your care.
Use ice. Using ice reduces inflammation, you know my rule, “ICE is NICE, HOT is NOT. Get in a dark room and rest. Rest and sleep help. Value your sleep. When we sleep our bodies heal, we re-charge our batteries. Getting sleep is every bit as important as getting exercise and using proper nutrition.
Try the home remedies. Some patients swear by soda. Some patients swear by chocolate. I’ve seen patients that get relief by sleeping with a bar of soap in their beds, hey if it works why not go for it.
Stick with your treatment plan and get adjusted. If you have lost your lordosis to your cervical spine, you need to see your CHIROPRACTOR. Getting adjusted helps.Well this was a short blog, back to seeing patients. Remember Moreland Chiropractic clinic is here for you and we want you better and Migraine free.MORELAND CHIROPRACTIC ROLLA MO.

Herniated Disc Rolla MO
Does your neck and or your arms bother you? Do you get headaches? If the answer is yes you should consider a chiropractor. A very common cause of neck and shoulder pain is a degenerative or bulging disc.
This condition sounds scary but fear not. Chiropractic care has very simple and natural noninvasive treatment care that can manage these conditions. Surgery is expensive and the outcomes are not that incredible. Many patients that have back and neck surgery end up suffering from the similar symptoms right after they have the surgery. Tiger Woods has not been a completive golfer since his two back surgeries.
At Moreland Chiropractic clinic we treat degenerative or bulging disc with modern chiropractic modalities. We use the most modern tractions devices available if your disc needs tractions. We utilize effective SOT techniques to address the cause of your degenerative disc and restore the normal lordocic curve and function of your cervical spine.
We give the patient home care that will strengthen your cervical spine and reduce the need for further care and future flare ups. If we cannot get your symptoms alleviated fast we work with the best team of neuro-surgeons in the stat at Washington University, and with Dr. Todd Stewart. The trick to getting a cervical spine disc managed well is not to wait.
So if you are suffering don’t delay call today.Moreland Chiropractic clinic is located in the same great location for the past 21 years. We are board certified. If you have questions or concerns talk to your Dr. about Moreland Chiropractic clinic or come by and chat with use for free. Consider seeing a Chiropractor many people do with excellent results.

Are you suffering from headaches? Many people do, and there is a lot of advice and help out there for people with headaches. Going to a Chiropractor is a great idea. Chiropractic care has helped millions of people over the years. This blog really isn’t about what a Chiropractor can do to help you though. It is more about what you can do for yourself. So let’s not waste your time and get to it.
You need to identify what triggers your headaches. These can be as simple as stress, insomnia, loud noise, bright lights, certain foods, even blood sugar changes. So my first suggestion is to avoid any triggers. That may not be as simple as it sounds for many though.Often your work area or the lighting or noise there is just what it is and you may not be able to change many of these factors.
Do your best to make your work area as ergonomic as you can. If you spend a lot of time in one position during the day you need to get up and down move every thirty minutes. Change your work station every few weeks, even a subtle change helps.
Obviously if food is one of your triggers you need to avoid any food that aggravates your headaches. Soda and caffeine can trigger headache. However, you will find that there are people that find relief from a migraine headache when they drink soda. So maybe try a Coke one time, if it helps that is awesome for you.
Don’t clinch your teeth. Yes clenching your teeth will trigger a headache. The temporomandibular joint or TMJ will get inflamed if you clench your teeth often and this will cause headaches. If you suffer from TMJ try using ice on the TMJ and doing some simple TMJ exercises, you can find these on You Tube.
Other home tips for headache suffers are as simple as getting 8 hours of sleep a day. Sleep takes practice if you suffer from insomnia. Get your sleep area as dark as you can, if you like noise make it loud if you prefer quite make it quite. I like a fan that makes as much noise as possible.
Exercise is good for your neck in most cases. This web page has several videos that may help your headache if your headache is caused by tension in your neck.
Now if you are having the worst headache of your life, I mean a ten out of ten go to the ER ASAP. If you are slurring your speech, dizzy, nauseous, or losing feeling or strength in an arm go to the ER ASAP.
This is just part one, we will give you another dose of help in our next blog.
