Arthritis: Cause and Prevention

Arthritis results from injury, overuse, or overloading of joints, such as in those who are overweight. Your body responds to these stresses first, through swelling and muscle spasm. Scar tissue may form depending on severity. Your body cannot support swelling and spasm indefinitely, and so in situations where the problem or stress is ongoing, your body in time instead chooses to fuse the joint, by deforming the bones and resorbing the cartilage or disc between them. We see an abundance of knee and hip replacements these days, but there is no spine replacement now or on the horizon. There are spinal surgical procedures that are complicated and often unsuccessful. Chiropractic is an obvious choice for aches and pains, but our most important service is restoring motion, allignment, and function to not only the spine, but to the other joints in the body as well. Combine our hands on care with some advice on diet and exercise, and you have the tools to prevent or slow arthritis anywhere in the body.

The spine is different from other joints such as the knee… there is no spine replacement surgery!

Colds and flu

Did you know that bacteria and viruses grow and reproduce best at 98.6 degrees, but much slower at 103 degrees? Our “innate intelligence” knows this and thats why we get a fever. Our “learned intelligence” thinks we know better and we take aspirin to bring the fever down, which reduces our immune response and delays recovery. The power that made the body heels the body! Chiropractors know this and help to allow full expression of innate intelligence by correcting spinal problems and resulting nerve interference. Yes, spinal problems cause health problems, and correcting spinal problems inproves health. We serve Livonia, Westland, Canton, and Plymouth. We have appointments available today for new patients, one could be yours!

Thomas Edison got it wrong almost 200 times before succussfully inventing the light bulb. Your success may be only one try away. Have a successful day!

Better Than An Apple a Day

The MEDSTAT Project led by Miron Syano, PhD, a healthcare economist and professor analyzed a database of almost 400,000 patients. All had health insurance. Those who had chiropractic coverage as part of their insurance had 35% lower hospital admission rates, 42% lower inpatient payments, and 23% lower total health care cost than those whose insurance did not. Chiropractors seek to restore health to patients, not cover symptoms or compensate with medications. Chiropractors educate patients about diet and exercise, and encourage conservative care vs. medication and surgery. Our patients learn what questions to ask their medical doctors about prescriptions to determine benefits vs. risks, and alternatives or necessity. Dr Schneider has 19 years experience and has attended over 50,000 individual adjustments. Let his experience improve your experience. Dr Schneider serves Livonia,Westland, Plymouth, and Canton.
