Happy Fall!

We hope your summer was filled with a healthy dose of fun, a bit of work and, of course, rest and relaxation! 

September 22nd is Falls Prevention Day.  As we age, degeneration of the spine can impact nervous system function and increase the risk of falls. Balance problems and gait issues are also main contributors to falls in seniors. Did you know that chiropractic care can help correct vestibular disorders and musculoskeletal issues that underlie balance issues? Check out Dr. Reynolds' article and video on vertigo in the section below to learn more. 

This month marks a new beginning for our students returning to school, a chance to start on a fresh foot. You can help f uel your child's brain for optimal learning by starting each morning with a breakfast menu consisting of protein, whole grains and fruit.  Essential oils can also help promote focus and concentration and aid in de-stressing after a long day at school (or even at the office!) .  Contact our office about back-to-school rollerballs to help get your child in the right frame of mind for learning.

Wishing all our students much success in the coming year... and  Happy Labor Day to all!

Yours in health,

Dr. Keri Chiappino and D r. W. Brent Reynolds

P.S. Reminder to our NYC patients -- please note that our Upper West Side wellness office has moved just .3 miles northeast of our current location. (See article below for more information.)

Is Your Life Literally Spinning Out of Control Due to Vertigo?
Chiropractic Neurological Care Can Help Bring Your Life Back in Balance

Our sense of balance is something we don't really give much thought in our busy lives, until, of course, it is thrown off-kilter. 

Nearly 70 million Americans struggle with a vertigo, a vestibular condition that causes spinning or swaying sensations.  For them, life can be like a wild, unpredictable carousel ride - causing slight unsteadiness at
times, then picking up speed to a dizzying pace at others.  Lightheadedness, nausea, gait issues, feelings of being off-balance and ringing in the ear (tinnitus) are common, oftentimes daily, symptoms of problems within the vestibular system, the part of the brain that controls balance and stability.

Vertigo is an inner ear disorder that can have its origins in a neck injury, illness or even aging.  Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo or BPPV, a common type of vertigo, is triggered by dislodged ear crystals that fall into the semicircular canal, causing sensitivity to head position changes and accompanying dizziness.  
 
For those living with vertigo, the persistent merry-go-around of imbalance takes a toll on daily living; due to mental fatigue, concentration and memory issues as well as the increased risk of injury and falls, many feel a loss of independence.  Anxiety and depression are common comorbid conditions.
 
Fortunately, there is a simple, non-invasive procedure known as the Epley maneuver which helps move the crystals out of the canal, alleviating spinning, dizziness and disequilibrium -- without prescription medication.  Dr. W. Brent Reynolds specializes in vestibular issues and has more than 10 years effectively resolving vertigo issues in his patients.   Check out his video above to learn more about the Epley maneuver and how it can restore balance without drugs or invasive procedures.  If you are experiencing feelings of imbalance, contact our office. 
 
Better balance can promote a better quality of life, free from the worry of falls and injury.  Let us help you restore balance in your life.

Shed the Meds! It's Pain Awareness Month

Prescription painkillers are commonly recommended by the medical establishment for lower back, neck and neuromusculoskeletal pain.  In fact, on an average day 650,000 opioid prescriptions are dispensed, according to the Department of Health & Human Services. 

Oftentimes, what starts as a means to alleviate pain after an injury or procedure becomes a lifelong addiction.  Studies show that 4 out of 5 heroin abusers started out with prescription painkillers and at least half of all opioid deaths due to overdose involved a prescription opioid.

Pain Awareness Month is a good time to shine a light on conservative care options like chiropractic, neurofeedback, acupuncture and therapeutic massage therapies which offer safe, effective, non-drug options for healing chronic pain.  We recommend that e ffective pain management should start with chiropractic care as a first-line treatment tool to get to the source of the pain to provide relief and increase function.

Our office has a wide variety of tools to help restore your health. Call us to learn how we can help relieve your pain naturally.
