Backpacks and Back Pain In Kids

12068591_911504408886665_4532451762543042370_o

Here is an article on the subject.

The Bottom Line: The weight of the backpack should not exceed 15% of the weight of the kid.

That’s the guideline. But the issue raises the issues of posture and strength in kids. Both should be addressed by parents and by their chiropractors.

We weigh the bags (some are ridiculously heavy). Often in doing so we find that the backpacks are not well built, or not adjusted properly, or simply don’t or can’t be fitted to the child well.

It’s something that is easy to fix and is sometimes a big deal. No need to let the kid suffer because of something so easy to take care of.

Cucs in the News

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctordilday @ 1:40 pm

cucumbers-group

Today’s paper had a story about how people are getting sick, it may have said dying, because of contaminated cucumbers.

Imagine a machine attached to your kitchen sink that could produce water with a pH of 2.5, low enough to kill almost any bug on the planet in 30 seconds or less. With this machine you could rise all the fruits and vegetables before you eat them and be confident that they were safely cleaned.

In the news these past weeks there have also been stories about a city back East that seems to have overlooked high and unsafe levels of lead in the water they send through their citizen’s taps.

What if that same machine that kills harmful bacteria on the food you want to eat also filters the water so you don’t have to worry about lead content? (Or more than a dozen other common contaminates?)

There is a machine that does those two tricks and many other tricks. You could get one. Call us and we will help you: (425) 348-5207.

Then you can clean your food and eat it without worry. You can feed clean, safe, food to your children without worry. Call us.

A Patient Came in Today Wondering Why All That Medical Care Didn’t Help

12239922_10153111788051502_7089968622200826153_n

A patient came in (limping) this morning after a month of moderate to severe lower back and leg/hip pain. She told a story about seeing her medical doctor who gave her medication, then referred her to a physical therapist. The patient saw the physical therapist who recommended and supervised a series of exercises. Her pain is about the same after a couple of weeks of that. (The medication knocks her out at night, so she sleeps, but she is groggy all morning after, doesn’t feel rested, and can’t fully function… so she stopped that.)

The answer is simple. First off, health care providers look for what they can “treat”. And they treat with whatever they treat with. (Put another way, we sell what we sell and when we decide we can help, we do it by doing what we do.)

Medical doctors prescribe medications for back pain, they may also recommend physical therapy (and some now recommend chiropractic care). They expect that to do it AS IT RELATES TO “BACK PAIN”. The PAIN is the patient’s problem (in the patient’s mind and in the medical doctor’s mind). If the pain doesn’t go away, the medical doctor will (1) increase the strength of the medication, and/or (2) combine medications, and or refer to a “spine specialist” who will examine and recommend, usually (first) and injection, and then, eventually, surgery. That’s just what you get when you go that route, ask anybody who knows anything about it.

But why didn’t that work?

(In this case, “work” means relieve the pain.)

In this patient’s case, as in most every other case where the usual medical approach fails and chiropractic care works, it didn’t work because the patient was subluxated (it’s “alternative” remember?). Spinal subluxations are characterized by 5 things: 1) joints not moving right (they are usually not moving enough – i.e., restricted), 2) abnormal reflexes from those same joints, 3) altered muscle function in the muscles served by the abnormal reflexes coming from those same joints , 4) altered motion/alignment involving nearby and related joints, and 5) inflammatory reactions in the abnormal stressed tissues surrounding and related to those same joints.

Let’s keep this really simple: When joints are not moving, they have to be freed up to move normally or whatever dysfunction caused will persist. Medication isn’t targeting joint restrictions – it’s targeting an effect: inflammation and pain. Exercises don’t usually target joint restrictions (well our first 6 do, but that’s a different story), and if the exercising doesn’t somehow result in the restricted joints becoming unrestricted, the inflammation (and pain) will be increased (a common occurrence).

It didn’t work because the cause was (and often is) miss-diagnosed

When a patient tells a medical doctor that they have low back pain, and the doctor says it back to them in Latin, that doesn’t help much. Not really. (In the world of back pain diagnosis is universally understood to be meaningless as it relates to effective treatment – but don’t take my word for that, talk to a bunch of researchers. The doctor is hoping that the medication takes away the pain. If it does, the patient is happy and so is the doctor; both think that they have done their job.)

The patient was subluxated; the medical doctor doesn’t know how to look for that, isn’t used to thinking such a thing exists, and doesn’t have a cure for it anyway: so, in their mind, it doesn’t exist.

It didn’t work because exercise and medication doesn’t (always, sometimes it does) remove joint restrictions.

I adjusted a half a dozen joints that were subluxated. She got up feeling better, and left without limping. (She will use ice now instead of heat – think inflammation.) I will see her again on Friday. Chiropractic doctors are trained to look for and correct spinal subluxations which are very often the cause of back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other conditions. See a Chiropractic doctor to find out if you need chiropractic care. They are the only one who would know that! (And if you don’t think that you can trust them, then go somewhere else and see someone who you can trust.)
