What Would Your Health Look Like if it was Being Investigated by Sherlock Holmes?

I know, I know… That is a loaded question.

But I think we can all agree that Sherlock Holmes was one of the most incredible private detectives the story books have ever seen! Here’s the reason why….

Not only did he use inductive reasoning based on indisputable facts, but he also correlated all the information he had so that he could get to the bottom of each case. What a brilliant concept!  So brilliant in fact that it is the same philosophy that we adopt at Intero Chiropractic when it comes to helping you reach YOUR health goals.  

Full spine digital x-rays tell us, first and foremost the extent of structural deterioration, how your body has compensated over time, how your spinal cord and spinal nerves are likely being affected, if there is something more serious in which you should see another health care provider, and HOW to best correct/reduce the problem on you THAT DAY.  

Your body is a complex and dynamic organism that is constantly striving to adapt to the ever changing environment.  For that reason, our doctors always correlate what they find on you each and every visit upon brief examination to your unique structural x-rays.  This is how the doctors can deliver the most specific correction for you, thus reduce stress from the nerve system putting you on the trajectory of overcoming your unique health issues, ideal functional wellness, stress resilience and optimal adaptation and expression of health.

Almost everyone agrees that this person they are picturing is typically hunched very far forward and their posture has shifted significantly from what would be considered normal.

It has been found through research that abnormal posture is associated with poor physical function, impaired pulmonary function, pain and disability and increased mortality.Watch the short video above, to learn how the doctors at Intero Chiropractic take each patient’s care to the next level but visually evaluating your structure each time you come into the office and things you can be looking for in your friends and loved ones to help them be more proactive in their health.

Shoulder Pain Helped

“It Feels Like It’s Ripping Apart”


Bobby came in after experiencing chronic shoulder pain.

Shoulder Pain is common.

This is mainly due to the nature of the shoulder joint itself. It has the most range of motion in the body.

Think of all of the ways your shoulder can move.

Whether you’re reaching across the table for something or scratching the itch on your back, your shoulders allow for so much movement.

Many suffer from shoulder pain due to the large amount of motion.

A research article noted that between 16% and 26% have reported experiencing shoulder pain. It is also the 3rd most common muskuloskeletal reason for going to the doctor.

We’ve found that there are 3 major reasons for shoulder conditions:

Rotator Cuff injuries

The shoulder blade has a number of muscles that attach to it. These are called the rotator cuff muscles.

They extend from the scapula around to the arm. These muscles become stressed due to rolled in shoulders and tight chest muscles. Because of this, the muscles are primed for injury.

Rotator cuff tears can be commonly seen in repetitive activities. Reaching forward or pulling motions can become extremely uncomfortable.

Impingement

The ligaments or bursa within the shoulder can become impinged. This can lead to irritation and inflammation. Once this occurs, pain may be experienced.

This type of injury can be seen with over head repetitive activities.

In addition, things like reaching back or overhead can become painful. Scratching your back or tucking in a shirt can be extremely uncomfortable.

Scapula Instability

There are many factors in regards to shoulder blade stability.

Due to the nature of our habits, we tend to have dysfunctions. Our chest muscles become tight, and our upper traps become tense.

Unfortunately, other muscles around the scapula can become weak. This can lead to improper shoulder mechanics. In addition, winging of the scapula can often be seen.

Due to the improper firing of the muscles, the instability can lead to a number of shoulder injuries.

Chiropractic Can Help

Structural and neurologically based chiropractic care focuses on improving the function of the body.

Targeting areas of the spine that have a direct impact on the shoulder can be effective. This can be found in areas such as the base of the neck or upper back.

There are times when addressing the shoulder joint can help. However, having proper spinal and nerve function is crucial for overall improvement.

Chronic pain can be difficult. Chiropractic care can help you begin the journey to health and recovery.
