If you're suffering from neck and/or back pain, do you take pain medication from your local pharmacy, consult with a medical doctor, or just endure the pain for as long as you can? A recent Gallup / Palmer College of Chiropractic survey of American adults conducted earlier this year provides the latest evidence that there's a much better option available: chiropractic care. Learn why chiropractic is a popular choice for neck and back pain – and then schedule an appointment with your chiropractor today if you're in pain (or want to prevent pain from striking in the first place).

Spine Specialists Come First

"For neck or back pain care, eight out of 10 adults in the United States (80%) prefer to see a health care professional who is an expert in spine-related conditions instead of a general medicine professional who treats a variety of conditions (15%)."

Pain Meds Aren't Preferred

"Prescription pain medications are not preferred as a first step for care among the vast majority of U.S. adults. When given a choice, nearly eight out of 10 (79%) say they prefer to try other ways to address physical pain before they take pain medication prescribed by a doctor."

Chiropractic Is a Popular Choice

"Among those who saw a health care professional for neck or back pain in the last 12 months, 62% saw a medical doctor and 53% saw a chiropractor. About a third saw a physical therapist (34%) or massage therapist (34%) for care."

Why Chiropractic? Because It Works

"Nearly half of adults who saw a [DC] for significant neck or back pain (52%) said one of the biggest reasons they chose chiropractic care was because 'this health care professional provides the most effective treatment for my pain.' More than four in 10 patients who saw a physical therapist (42%) and 23% who saw a medical doctor for significant neck or back pain said effectiveness was one of the biggest reasons they chose this type of health care provider."

A Great Overall Experience

"Roughly nine out of 10 adults who saw a chiropractor most often for significant neck or back pain in the last 12 months say their chiropractor often listens (93%), provides convenient, quick access to care (93%), demonstrates care/compassion (91%) and explains things well (88%) – and 90% of chiropractic patients say that their chiropractor spends the right amount of time with them."

Find out the best way to deal with acute or chronic sciatic nerve pain.

SciaticaSciatica is not a condition but rather a symptom that you experience as the result of an underlying problem within the neuro/musculoskeletal system. If you are experiencing a burning, tingling pain that runs from the hip down to the buttock and the leg, then you might have sciatica. If you are dealing with sciatica, find out how our Attleboro, MA, chiropractor, Dr. Jason Miller, can help alleviate your symptoms and improve how your body functions!

What causes sciatica?

In many cases, sciatica is the result of sciatic nerve compression. Other causes of sciatica include:

  • Misaligned lumbar joints
  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Pregnancy and childbirth
  • Non-spinal disorder (e.g. diabetes)
  • Piriformis syndrome (common)
  • Spinal tumors (rare)

How is sciatica diagnosed?

Since sciatica is a symptom of something else that’s going on, the first thing our Attleboro chiropractic specialist will do is go through your medical history and perform a thorough physical evaluation.

In some instances, depending on other symptoms you are experiencing or your medical history, we may recommend imaging tests such as x-rays or an MRI.

How can a chiropractor help my sciatica?

The goal of chiropractic treatment is to improve how the body functions by facilitating the body’s natural healing response. Many people turn to chiropractic care because it is a non-medicinal and non-surgical way to treat a variety of conditions.

Once we figure out what is causing your sciatica we can create a treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs and health. In many cases, there will be several complementary therapies and options to help ease your symptoms and improve your condition. Some of these treatments include:

  • EMS: Electrical signals are directed over the area to penetrate through the tissue to reduce swelling, pain and muscle spasms while boosting circulation to the area
  • Stretching and strengthening exercises: These exercises are designed to help with your flexibility, posture and as a way to improve your circulation.
  • Spinal manipulation: One of the classic treatment options of chiropractic care, spinal manipulation helps to restore misaligned vertebral discs and improve the overall alignment of the spine, which in turn speeds up the healing process and reduces pain and inflammation

Dealing with sciatica in Attleboro, MA? Not sure what’s causing your symptoms? If so, it’s time to turn to the experts at Miller Chiropractic Health Center for a diagnosis. We will be happy to get to the root of your sciatic pain and help you treat the problem more effectively, —just call (508) 226-2333 today!

Are you a migraine sufferer? Find out how chiropractic care could help you.

While everyone will experience a headache at some point during their lifetime, those who deal with migraines truly understand pain. migrainesMigraines are severe and often debilitating headaches that can also cause light sensitivity, auras, nausea, and vomiting. If you are having trouble getting your migraines under control our Attleboro and Seekonk, MA, chiropractor, Dr. Jason Miller, might be able to help.

While women are more likely than men to deal with migraines, this is a problem that both men and women of all ages face. Many migraines originate from the neck and the temples, causing stiffness that feels similar to a tension headache. Of course, since many migraines do begin at the neck, spinal adjustments (also known as spinal manipulation) can actually alleviate any tension or misalignments within the cervical spine that could be leading to your migraines.

How do misalignments cause migraines?

When the spine isn’t completely aligned this can cause irritation and inflammation within the nerves of the spine, as well as the surrounding muscles. If the misalignment isn’t corrected with chiropractic treatment then this could lead to pain, stiffness, and tenderness. This pain and stiffness may radiate to the neck, causing the tension that often leads to a vicious migraine.

Fortunately, by getting regular chiropractic adjustments it will not only reduce the severity of the migraines you experience but also the frequency with which you experience them. Along with spinal misalignments, another factor that could contribute to your migraines might actually be your posture.

If you are someone who sits at a desk most of the day then bad posture could very well be the reason for your migraines. Why? Being hunched over your desk staring at a computer screen all day can put a lot of stress and strain on the muscles of the neck and back, which can also lead to misalignments and migraines.

How can a chiropractor help you?

Our Attleboro and Seekonk chiropractic specialist wants to provide you with the individualized chiropractic care you deserve to improve your body and your mind. We know how tough migraines can be and our goal is to pinpoint the root cause and figure out the best way to eliminate them. Along with regular chiropractic adjustments we may also look into certain lifestyle modifications (e.g. diet, exercise, stress levels) that could also trigger your migraines.

We know how difficult living with migraines can be and we don’t want it to dictate your quality of life. It’s time to take action and call Miller Chiropractic Health Center in Attleboro and Seekonk, MA, today to find out how we can get you on the road to migraine recovery.

Tags: Sports Injuries  

Sports injuries can occur when participating in recreational or competitive sports, or when simply working out on your own. Some sports sports injuriesinjuries occur immediately after an accident, such as tripping, falling, or colliding with another athlete. Other sports injuries develop slowly over time as a result of repetitive motions. Tennis elbow is one example. If you have sustained a sports injury, a chiropractor can help. At Miller Chiropractic Health Center Attleboro, MA, Dr. Jason Miller, Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician, CCSP, can help treat your sports injuries.

Common Sports Injuries

Two areas of the body that are particularly vulnerable to being injured during sports are the neck and lower back. Athletes who lift weights or run regularly, for instance, are at risk of developing lower back injuries over time due to the repetitive motions associated with both activities. Other areas that can be susceptible to injury include joints like the shoulders, elbows, knees, and ankles. Some common sports injuries associated with a variety of athletic activities include:

  • Muscle strains
  • Ankle sprains
  • Shin splints
  • Knee injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Tennis elbow
  • Groin pulls

Chiropractic Treatments

An Attleboro chiropractor can treat a wide range of sports injuries. Chiropractic techniques are applied to the injured area to reduce inflammation, improve flexibility, alleviate pain, and promote healing. In addition to healing and rehabilitating sports injuries, continued chiropractic care can also strengthen the injured area and minimize the risk of injury again in the future. Regular chiropractic visits help keep the spine properly aligned, the muscles relaxed, and the joints flexible so you are less prone to sustaining additional sports injuries.

Participating in sports and working out are both excellent ways to keep yourself fit while having fun, but there is always a risk of sustaining a sports injury. If you have developed a sports injury, a chiropractor can help you heal and recover, as well as prevent additional injuries. To schedule an appointment with Internationally Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician, ICCSP, Dr. Miller, your Attleboro, MA, chiropractor, call Miller Chiropractic Health Center at (508) 226-2333.

Chiropractic care takes a more holistic approach to treating arthritis and uses hands-on techniques to help quell its symptoms. Find out more about chiropractic care for arthritis with Dr. Jason Miller at Miller Chiropractic Health Center in Attleboro, MA.

What is arthritis? 
Arthritis is an umbrella term to refer to inflammation and pain of the joints or joint disease. Though there are over 100 types of arthritis, they all affect the joints and cause similar symptoms. Anyone can suffer from arthritis, but it is most common among women over the age of 50. There are many treatments for arthritis which normally all depend on the type of arthritis present, its severity, and the patient’s medical and family history.

Do I have arthritis? 
Arthritis causes pain, swelling, irritation, and inflammation of the joints. You may also notice that the affected area has a decreased range of motion, making it more difficult to perform simple daily tasks like walking, standing, or writing. Joint stiffness is also a common symptom of arthritis. Often, the symptoms of arthritis come and go and may be worse or better depending on environmental factors. The condition progresses over a long period of time, becoming worse slowly, often over the course of years.
