There are few things that are as traumatic as being involved in a car accident. It’s a shock to your system, you can be injured, sometimes quite seriously, and the memory of the event can stay with you for a long time. Unfortunately, some of the pain associated with the trauma can also stay with you for many years. Accident victims often suffer from chronic pain, including whiplash injuries. If you’ve been in an accident and have been suffering from chronic pain as a result, Total Chiropractic Care and Wellness and our doctor, Todd Goldman can help.
If you’re looking for chiropractic care, chances are you’re doing it to relieve pain. A great deal of our practice at Total Chiropractic Care and Wellness is related to pain management. But we’re concerned about the total health of our patients and we recognize that just as diet and exercise can supplement chiropractic manipulation as a pain technique, there are ways chiropractic care can help provide other health benefits. For example, chiropractic care is often considered when trying to avoid back surgery. Not needing surgery can prevent you from taking potentially dangerous or addictive pain medication. But can chiropractic help you sleep? Total Chiropractic wants to examine the relationship between what we do and getting a healthy rest.
October is a special month for us here at Total Chiropractic Care and Wellness, and not just because it’s a beautiful time of year on Long Island. October is National Chiropractic Health Month, which is an event designed to help raise public awareness of the benefits of chiropractic care. Chiropractic doctors also want to highlight the natural, whole-person, patient-centered and drug-free approach to health and wellness that are at the core of their practice, according to the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) publication ACA Today. Total Chiropractic Care and Wellness enthusiastically supports National Chiropractic Health Month and we want to let you know how chiropractic can help you.
If you suffer from back pain, especially lower back pain, you might be confused about all of your treatment options. You wonder about surgery, but you may be concerned about its effectiveness, and worry about rehabilitation and medications you may have to take while you’re recuperating. You may be interested in chiropractic therapy at Total Chiropractic Care and Wellness because you’ve heard that chiropractic manipulation can help you manage pain and is a non-invasive alternative to surgery.
Talking about surgery seems to go against a lot of what you may have heard about what we do at Total Chiropractic Care and Wellness, but it does happen. It’s true that one of the pillars of chiropractic care is to treat patients without invasive techniques or options that lead to other dangers such as prescription painkillers. For this reason, chiropractors often choose conservative treatment options. We usually only recommend surgery as a last resort. But sometimes patients will reach that point where the surgical option needs to be considered.
When you think of chiropractic care, most people think about back, neck and other types of pain. And it’s true that pain management is an integral part of our practice at Total Chiropractic Care and Wellness. But there’s much more to what we do than chiropractic manipulation designed to ease pain. We’re committed to helping our patients achieve optimum health. That means we’ll discuss exercise, diet and more. We’ll also look to give you lifestyle advice. But can chiropractic care extend to helping patients feel more mentally fit? Are there elements of what we do that will help ease anxiety?
Taking part in sports is one of the best things you can do for your health. These activities can improve your cardiovascular condition and also has positive psychological benefits such as being part of a team and improving self-confidence. Exercise and sports can be an important part of a health regimen and it’s very often incorporated in our treatment at Total Chiropractic Care and Wellness. But there is a downside to all of this. Sports can result in injuries and sometimes these injuries cause chronic pain. But if this happens to you, Total Chiropractic can still help. We’re experts at treating sports injuries.

We’re constantly looking for ways to help people deal with conditions like chronic pain, neck pain or back pain. We offer many services to patients looking for ways to manage pain and we’ve recently instituted a new therapy to help our patients feel more relaxed. It’s called the Magnesphere.
You’ve probably heard it from your parents. “Eat your vegetables so you can grow big and strong!” or “Don’t slouch, it will stunt your growth!” But were your parents right? Are there factors other than genetics that influence height? You might be surprised to learn that the spine has an influence on your height, which leads to the question, can chiropractic make you taller? Total Chiropractic Care and Wellness wants you to understand the relationship between height and chiropractic as well as the relationship between height and health.
It happens every day and it can change your life and your health. If you’ve suffered an injury at work, you may have to go on disability and lose a portion of your income. For some people, that means missing a few days of work, while others can be out for a long time. Another issue related to workplace injuries is that it can give rise to chronic pain. Very often this pain manifests itself as back or neck pain, and when that happens Total Chiropractic Care and Wellness can often help.
