If you’ve reached middle age and find you’re feeling back pain, you could be suffering from one of the most common conditions we see at Total Chiropractic Care and Wellness. It’s called spinal stenosis and it can be a painful affliction that is common with people over 50 but can affect all types of people.
If you’re expecting a baby, it can be an exciting and stressful time. Pregnancy involves regular trips to the ob-gyn but very often women deal with a side effect of pregnancy that requires another type of doctor. A common condition of pregnancy is back pain and that’s one of the reasons why many women turn to chiropractic care during pregnancy. At Total Chiropractic Care and Wellness, we want you to know about the health benefits of seeing a chiropractor while pregnant so you can ensure wellness for yourself and your new child.

Easing Your Pain Through a Proper Diet
A lot of people think chiropractic care is only about spine and neck manipulation. But there’s a reason we’re called Total Chiropractic Care and Wellness. We certainly use chiropractic techniques, but we also know that one of the keys to pain management is total health. That means looking at things like exercise and lifestyle choices as well. One area that should always be looked at when trying to achieve total health is diet. What you eat can have an impact on pain management, so we want you to know the connections between diet and easing pain.
Swimming Can Help with Chiropractic Care
Everybody into the water! Summer is here and for many people, particularly on Long Island, that means it’s time to head to the beach or the local swimming pool. At Total Chiropractic Care and Wellness, we know that swimming is a great aerobic exercise that can lead to optimum health. It has helped ease and prevent pain for many of our patients. At the same time, if done incorrectly, swimming can also cause lower back pain problems. We want our patients to understand both the rewards and risks to your back that come with swimming so you can enjoy water fun and understand if you need to seek help for back pain.
Non Surgical Chiropractic Care to Relieve Your Back Pain
If you have back pain, you’re looking for relief but you also want to make sure the treatment for your pain doesn’t cause harm either. That’s why surgery is not considered to be the best first option for pain management. Back pain can recur after surgery, and a trip to the operating table is often more expensive than other forms of treatment. Health care providers are recommending looking for non-surgical alternatives for back pain and more and more, those treatment options include chiropractic care.

Chiropractic Treatment for Lower Back Pain
Recent guidelines on lower back pain have changed the way doctors are thinking about treatment. The guidelines were issued in February of 2017 by the American College of Physicians (ACP) as an update of similar guidelines put out a decade earlier. The new guidelines are based on a review of over 150 studies over the past decade. Total Chiropractic Care and Wellness, wants you to know about current thought in the medical field about back pain and the recommendations when caregivers seek non-drug and non-invasive treatments rather than drug therapies. We’ve always been a proponent of non-invasive treatments at Total Chiropractic Care and Wellness, so we want you to understand what these guidelines mean to you.
