What is the DRS Protocol™?
DRS™ stands for Decompression, Reduction and Stabilization. The DRS Protocol™ is a comprehensive combination of treatments, which include axial/spinal decompression, and multiple therapies and utilizes "Patient Centered Healthcare."

DRS 252BFactsWhat does the DRS Protocol™ help?
The DRS Protocol™ has been proven most effective for involved & chronic disc conditions: degenerative disc disease, herniated disc(s), numbness and tingling of the hands/arms and legs/feet, as well as sciatica, posterior facet syndrome, spinal stenosis and failed back and neck surgeries.

How Does DRS™ Work?
The DRS™ treatment applies an "axial" force to the injured disc levels. During treatment, the DRS™ protocol reduces pressure inside of the disc - this reduces the painful herniation and the pain from other disc-related degenerative conditions. We customize treatment for each patient's needs, as each patient's health and condition is individual.

Why Should I try the DRS™ Protocol?
The DRS™ treatment results in pressure reduction & increased blood flow to the injured area, reduction of pain, increased mobility, and tissue repair. In several research studies, conclusion indicated that for patients with appropriate amount of back & neck pain conditions, DRS™ is a "front-line, premier treatment."

Suffering from Headaches?

 If You Suffer from Headaches, You are Not Alone...

Headaches are one of the most common conditions that enter the offices of physicians. The number of people who suffer from headaches every year is staggering, yet two-thirds of headache sufferers remain undiagnosed and in pain.

In fact the three main types of headaches, most often found in chiropractic offices are: migraine headache, tension headaches, & cervicogenic headaches (from the neck).

This is important because a recent Duke University study showed Chiropractic care helped these types of headaches both in headache frequency and severity. The study also confirmed that Chiropractic Care worked better than many other treatments.

Do you find yourself frequently taking over-the-counter medications such as Excedrin, Advil, Nuprin, Aleve or Tylenol?

"These types of drugs only serve to dull and hide the pain," Dr. William Moyal says, "they don't treat the cause, or source of pain, which is why the headache returns." With these common over-the-counter medications treating only the "symptoms" headache-suffers feel compelled to take more and more pain-relievers, subjecting them to the many harmful side effects these medications can cause.

The standard chiropractic treatment approach includes manual therapies such as spinal manipulation or adjustments, mobilization techniques, trigger point therapy, physiological therapeutics, digital x-ray and nutritional counseling etc.. With the chiropractic treatment option, you don't have to worry about negative side effects…only positive results!

We offer affordable relief care for your headache. If you'd like to see how we can help you like we have already helped so many others,

Coke vs Water

Water vs. Coke

This is an interesting article: We all know that water is important but I've never seen it written down like this before.

75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. (Likely applies to half of the world pop.)

In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for hunger. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as much as 3%.

One glass of water shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a U-Washington study.

Lack of water is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.

A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.

Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.

Are you drinking the amount of water you should every day?

COKE No wonder coke tastes soooo good: 

1. In many states (in the USA) the highway patrol carries two gallons of Coke in the truck to remove blood from the highway after a car accident. 

2. You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of coke and it will be gone in two days.
3. To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the toilet bowl and.......Let the "real thing" sit for one hour, then flush clean. The citric acid in Coke removes stains from vitreous china. 

4. To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers: Rub the bumper with a crumpled-up piece of Reynolds Wrap aluminum foil dipped in Coca-Cola. 

5. To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour a can of Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion.

6. To loosen a rusted bolt: Apply a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola to the rusted bolt for several minutes. 

7. To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coca-Cola into the baking pan, wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and bake. Thirty minutes before the ham is finished, Remove the foil, allowing the drippings to mix with the Coke for a sumptuous brown gravy. 

8. To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of coke into a load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run through a regular cycle.

Coca-Cola will help loosen grease stains.

It will also clean road haze from your windshield.

FYI: 

1. The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. Its' pH is 2.8. It will dissolve a nail in about 4 days. 

2. To carry Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate) the commercial truck must use the Hazardous material place cards reserved for highly corrosive materials. 

3. The distributors of coke have been using it to clean the engines of their trucks for about 20 years!

Still Want To Drink Up?

Bill Introduced to Modernize Medicare Coverage of Chiropractic Services

A bill that would update Medicare by increasing its coverage of services provided by doctors of chiropractic within the full extent of their licensure was introduced today in the U.S. House of Representatives.  The legislation, H.R. 3654, known as the Chiropractic Medicare Coverage Modernization Act of 2019, would align Medicare’s coverage of chiropractic services with that of other federal health care providers as well as many private health plans.  The bipartisan legislation, introduced by Reps. Brian Higgins (D-N.Y.) and Tom Reed (R-N.Y.), would enable beneficiaries to more easily access the chiropractic profession’s broad-based, non-drug approach to pain management, which includes Medicare-covered services such as manual manipulation of the spine and extremities, evaluation and management services, diagnostic imaging  and utilization of other non-drug approaches that have become an important strategy in national efforts to stem the epidemic of prescription opioid overuse and abuse.  "The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) is encouraged that this bill would finally give Medicare beneficiaries access to the same safe and effective chiropractic services that members of our military, veterans, and federal employees now enjoy," said ACA President Robert C. Jones, DC.  "We applaud Rep. Higgins and Rep. Reed, who recognize the necessity of modernizing Medicare's chiropractic coverage to meet the needs of today's beneficiaries," added Keith Overland, DC, chairman of the ACA Legislative Advisory Board.  Since 1972, Medicare beneficiaries have been covered for only one chiropractic service—manual manipulation of the spine—forcing them to access additional medically necessary care from other types of providers or to pay out of pocket for the services from their chiropractor.  Chiropractors are the only physician-level providers in the Medicare program whose services are restricted in this manner.  The federal Medicare program currently serves more than 55 million individuals; various projections forecast the number of people age 65 or older increasing by about one-third over the next decade.

Chiropractic Care - Not Just For Back Problems

Chiropractors have always maintained that chiropractic care is not just for the treatment of back and neck pain, but is in fact effective for other conditions issues as well. A new case study, published in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine backs these claims by examining the treatment of arm and hand pain. A 41-year-old female patient was experiencing alarming pain, numbness and weakness in her right arm and hand. Her symptoms had begun three weeks prior to treatment, when she woke up in the morning and assumed she had “slept wrong.” Medical assessments confirmed her pain, numbness and decreased grip strength. Treatment began immediately and included specific chiropractic manipulative therapy as well as myofascial therapy and elastic therapeutic taping. The patient was also assigned an active home care regimen which included postural exercises and workstation ergonomics education. The results—The patient showed immediate improvement of her numbness and weakness after just the first treatment. The case study’s authors noted that over a series of eleven treatments, her symptoms were completely resolved and she was able to return to work without pain. If you’re experiencing any sort of body pain, numbness or loss of strength, contact your local chiropractor today. Consultations are affordable, safe and chances are very good that chiropractic care may be able to help!

Stay Cool For Better Exercise Performance and Safety

As the temperature rises so too does the risk for exercise related heat stroke and performance drop. The human body doesn't perform optimally when it becomes too hot. New research shows that using cooling techniques such as ice vests or cold water bathing/applications before and/or during workouts increases performance. Your body requires significant energy and blood flow to keep your body from overheating. Any external assistance with the cooling process provides the body with additional energy and blood flow to exercising muscles. Various cooling methods were studied including the use of cooling vests and cold packs, consumption of cold water or ice slurries, immersion in a cold water bath or a combination. Researchers also studied the effects on performance comparing pre-exercise applications vs. during exercise applications. Researchers found while pre-exercise and during exercise applications of cold increased performance, a combination of the two worked best. One of the most effective applications was wearing an ice chest during exercise along with a combination of pre-exercise techniques. Doing so improved athletic performance by close to 7 percent. In addition to the increased performance, cooling techniques reduce potential for heat stroke - a very common side effect of exercise, especially in the summer heat.
