What is a subluxation?

When you think of a chiropractor you may think of someone who deals with your neck and back. If you’ve been to the chiropractor, you may be familiar with having pressure applied to those areas and having your neck or back move or sometimes “crack.”

But what is really happening and what do chiropractors actually do? While it seems to be about just the spine, it is actually about the entire body.

Dr. Mike and Dr. Rion talk a bit about it in the video below.

Easy Stretches for Tension Headache Relief

Stretch Those Tension Headaches Away

Do you suffer from tension headaches? After a long day in front of the computer it is fairly common to develop a headache especially if your workstation is not properly set up. Additionally, checking email and sending text messages automatically causes the head to be in a misaligned “Anterior Head Syndrome” position. This is a recipe for tension headaches as well as other problems.

Start by correcting posture

Before you get started with these simple stretches, make sure you have your work area set up so you can work with your head in a neutral position. We would be happy to show you how you should be sitting while at your workstation.
What you want to avoid is a condition called anterior head carriage which is simply sitting or standing with your head in a forward position. Sit tall with your ears over your shoulders to reduce the strain on your neck.
Even if you work on the run, be aware of the tilt of your head when checking your phone or tablet. It may only be for a few minutes each time but cumulatively it can account for several hours of strain on your cervical spine.

Flushing out Arthritis

What is arthritis – inflammation and wear and tear on your joints
‘arth’ – joint & ‘-itis’ – inflammation.

Salutogenesis vs. Pathogenesis

Salutogenesis literally means: “that which gives birth to health.”

We all want to be healthy and health is on our minds now more than ever. How do we achieve that?

Our traditional health system focuses on a pathogenic approach: How to prevent or treat disease or illness.

But the opposite, more ideal approach is salutogenesis.

Salutogenesis versus Pathogenesis

This approach considers how health is created and maintained.

Pathos means suffering, so pathogenesis is the birth of suffering. Many health professions have this term incorporated into their name. For example, conventional medicine is allopathy. Even alternative medicines like homeopathy have pathos in their names.

How do these two approaches affect us?

Salutogenesis stems from the belief in a friendly universe, one that is positive and works and provides for the greater good. This gives a sense of coherence--“confidence that one's environment is predictable and that things will work out as well as can reasonably be expected.”

Pathogenesis stems from a belief in a hostile universe, where we assume the worst of people and circumstances. This promotes an inherent feeling of fear and a sense of chaos, that everything is random.

Important Update: Flintridge Family Chiropractic

This has been a trying time for all of us. We are aware of the current circumstances. We want to support you in your holistic care regimen. Also, we continue to stand behind our solid recommendations of maintaining healthy eating, frequent movement, and clear mind.

Being on lock-down, quarantined, and isolated has put most of us in a highly sympathetic and stressful state, with lots of concern and fear of what the future holds. A key component to getting out of that sympathetic state is getting adjusted and maintaining a healthy spine and nervous system.

Kids & Quarantine..Managing Family Life

Kids & Quarantine: Managing Family Life

Make sure to write down the routine for everyone in the home to see and specify it by child and adult if needed. There are plenty of home schedule templates online.

-Estimate Your Work Hours

-Work in Shifts If You Can (If you have a partner, try to schedule shifts where one of you works and the other watches the kids)

-Plan to Work Alongside Your Child Part-Time (Come up with a list of activities such as simple book reports, research projects, drawing or coloring they can do while you sit together.)

-Build in Independent Play (Schedule the same time each day when your child can learn independently. Be consistent to help them adapt to this new activity.)

-Stay Adaptable and Realistic (Focus on what you can do and adjust as needed.)

3 Easy Stretches to Do at Home

The average American spends 6.5 hours a day sitting if not more! When we are sitting for too long our bodies learn to adapt to that new position. This isn’t necessarily a good adaptation!

Prolonged sitting can lead to the weakening and tightening of muscles which can ultimately be a huge contributor to the function of the spine and a cause of low back pain.

One of the best things we can do to keep the hips and pelvis healthy is stretching. Here are our 3 favorite stretches that you can easily do at home!

Essential Biotics

One way to get probiotics in your system is to grow some of your own food. I know it can feel intimidating if you are not an experienced gardener. However, there are many simple things you can grow, even if you do not know what you are doing or if you have no backyard. Grow sprouts on your counter. They take one minute a day to manage and the outcome is an entire tray full of delicious sprouts you can put in your salad or even in your smoothie. Herbs are often very easy to grow on your windowsill. Basil, rosemary, thyme, and oregano only take minimal space, and they can double as pretty houseplants.
