Why is stretching so beneficial

It’s easy to forget to stretch. It’s often overlooked because the results are not as visible as lifting weights and squatting—or so you thought. Stretching can lead to better posture, fewer aches and pains and greater confidence.

“Stretching increases your blood flow and circulation for a healthier body and sends oxygen to your brain for a clearer mind.  Berger Chiropractic is now offering "doctor supervised" stretching. Unlike other places wouldn't you want a professional working on you?

Let Us Treat Your Pain from Auto Accidents in Deerfield Beach, FL

A car accident can be a very scary situation. After the initial shock of the accident, the pain and doctor’s visits which follow can be more frightening than the accident itself. If you’re in pain as a result of one of the many auto accidents in Deerfield Beach, Fl our office may be able to help you. We can help treat your discomfort and aches with creative methods that will mitigate or even alleviate the problem. Our team at Berger Chiropractic and Wellness works towards your optimal health and comfort.

There’s nothing easy about car accidents, and back pain following an accident can grow in intensity and danger as the accident recedes into memory. The spinal cord is a complex system with twenty four bones which stack on top of one another. When one or more of these bones is damaged or misaligned, the others may encounter issues too. A misaligned vertebrae can even irritate your nerves, impairing your body’s ability to send messages throughout the nervous system. Simple back discomfort after a car accident can sometimes balloon into more serious issues within the rest of your body.

Auto accidents can also cause painful whiplash in Deerfield Beach, Fl. Whiplash is an injury which occurs when the soft tissues of the neck are damaged from a sudden jerking motion, such as sitting in a stopped car that is unexpectedly jerked forward by a rear-end collision. Auto accidents can cause strain in your muscles and ligaments beyond the normal range of motion. Whiplash is not a simple ache, it’s intense neck pain which can make it difficult to carry out daily activities.

Prolonged Sitting Increases Back Pain

For those of you spending significant periods sitting, you're significantly increasing the chances of experiencing back pain, according to the research. In a recent study, researchers conducted a systematic review of previous studies to determine whether increased sitting was associated with an immediate increase in low back pain. Researchers found, as many might expect, that prolonged sitting does in fact increase immediate low back pain in adults. If you find yourself sitting for more than 20 to 30 minute periods, we recommend getting up, stretching, walking around, and taking a break from sitting. It's not only good for your back, it also helps to clear and reset your mind. If you're experiencing low back pain, contact our office today - we can help!

Jump For Your Adjustment!

Looking to increase athletic performance and possibly your vertical jump height? Give an adjustment a try! A small blinded trial was conducted recently in young female athletes who were suffering from ankle joint dysfunction to see if an adjustment to the joint could affect their vertical jump height. The ankle joint, more technically referred to as the talocrural joint, is the joint formed from the ends of the lower leg bones (tibia and fibula) and the top bone of the ankle, the talus. Half of the female athletes with ankle joint dysfunction received an adjustment to their ankle joint once a week for three weeks while the other half received a sham treatment once a week for three weeks. On average, those receiving the adjustment to their ankle joint saw an average 0.47 cm increase in their vertical jump as compared with the sham group. It’s important to recognize that adjustments provided by doctors of chiropractic can be delivered to and benefit more than just the joints of the spine. If you or someone you know is suffering from pain or dysfunction, or is simply looking to enhance their physical performance and overall health, give your local chiropractor a call today!

Ditch the Cola: How Your Favorite Sodas Can Lead to Heart Failure

Sugary sodas may feel like the perfect thirst quencher, but prolonged soda consumption can actually have serious consequences in the long run. Over time, studies have shown increasing links between soda consumption and the risk for high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, and even heart problems. In fact, one Swedish study observed the soda consumption of 42,000 men over the course of 12 years. There were roughly 3,600 new cases of heart failure during the 12-year long study, and it concluded that men who regularly drank two or more servings of soda per day had a 23% greater risk of experiencing heart failure in their lifetime.  Women are strongly advised to ditch the soda as well. Long-term soda consumption in women has been strongly linked to a rise in insulin problems, high blood pressure, obesity, and type-2 diabetes, all of which are triggers for major heart problems. Heart failure occurs when the heart does not have the strength to pump enough oxygen and blood. 23 million people across the globe already deal with heart failure, and it will only continue to worsen with the regular consumption of processed foods, sodium, and sugary beverages like soda.
