Your Returning Neck Pain Might Be Due To Your Pillow?

Chiropractic adjustment help to align the spine but if you constantly work to undo those treatments, you are not doing yourself any favors.  It's sort of like walking up the down escalator; it takes a lot of work to go anywhere.

If you feel good after your treatment but keep waking up the next day with pain, you have to ask yourself: "what may I be doing?"  A recent person described to me a pillow that wasn't giving him support anymore.  On his side, he literally had a huge neck and head tilt...  Keep doing that at night and this will become your posture.

How Does Stretching Help My Back?

Stretching may alleviate pain in the back.  It can do this for 3 reasons:
1) it keeps things loose and mobil - motion is a big key.  They often say "motion is life".  When an area moves like it should #'s 2 and 3 increase.
2) it increases blood flow - when an area can get more blood it can get all the nutrients it needs. Healing cells likes macrophages, and other white blood cells, water, and more.
3) it increases oxygen flow to the area - oxygen is a major player when it comes to healing.  Oxygen is known to heal and revitalize many tissues, muscle is just one of them.


These are the technical reasons it can help with back pain, but if you know it feels good, you'll most likely do it for that reason alone.

If It's Not Working Then Change

I know a number of people who keep seeing the same doctor even though they're not getting better.  That doctor may not know unless you tell him.  But who's fault is it then, the responsibility lies on you.  Make a change; see someone else, try a different treatment, etc...



You want to be 100% healthy or as close to it as you can.  That is why I put a number of products on my website that have been tested in the office.  If I didn't like it, I don't sell it.  It's that simple.  I realized a long time ago that there were so many people I could help, but they were just to far away.  This is why I've put a number of these products on my website; that way, no matter where you are you can get relief...

Do You Twist And Turn A lot Driving?


I ask this question because I've had people come to my office due to this kind of injury driving.  You definitely turn your neck a certain amount; I've actually seen a couple of people who strained their neck backing out of the driveway.

What I want to talk about here is people who also may strain their middle or lower back.  Now I'm not talking about getting side swiped or something like that, I'm talking about self inflicted pain.  I've seen a number of animated drivers, ones who don't just turn the neck but the rest of the body too.

We're not dealing with enemy fighter jet who we are always looking in our blind spot for... Therefore you shouldn't have to twist your body a lot.  The same goes for trying to reach something that fell on the passenger seat floor; don't do it!

We have a friend that drives a cab, and you should see him, it seems like he never turns much at all.  He is really good at using his mirrors.  Something we all should get good at because you know traffic only increases and gets faster.


Get blind spot mirrors, do what you have to do to make driving more comfortable, but limit your body twisting and turning, it will prevent injury.

The "Tennis Ball" Trick

Using a tennis ball is a great way to massage out trigger points in the muscles. Trigger points are when the muscle binds up and creates a knot. This often causes pain because it restricts motion and puts pressure on nerves. Watch this short video where a chiropractor shows how to use the tennis ball.

Who uses a Low Back Support Belt?

The answer to that question is: anyone who wants to keep their back pain free. I like this particular belt I'm showing below because it's thin and has some give to it. Most people won't need a support that has no give to it. Take a look...you can even wear it under clothing.

“Doc, Your Going To Crack Me, Are You?”


As a chiropractor for 13+ years, I am still surprised to see some people are afraid of getting treated with chiropractic because they think there is a chance of bones being broken or some other bodily harm. Or even hear how another doctor says not to get chiropractic because it’s dangerous.

Chiropractic is one of the safest treatments out there. Let’s say someone has an ache in the back. They go to the medicine cabinet and take a pill. Well that medicine doesn’t just go right to the area in pain but goes everywhere in the body. It’s like using an atomic bomb to a whole town to get rid of mice in one house.

 The chiropractic adjustments we do are a safe and gentle way to stop a problem or a pain without having to drop that “atomic bomb”, and maybe cause more problems than we started with.

 To learn more about our safe, gentle, chiropractic treatments, speak with one of our chiropractors at (860) 633-8756.

I'm Not Really a Medicine Guy, Can Chiropractic Help Me?

It's very possible. The first step is to come into the office for an exam. Here, the doctor can take a look at you and talk to you to find out what's going on.

In most cases a couple simple adjustments to a bone or bones of the spine may do the trick. Oh yeah, don't worry it so gentle and easy, you'll be surprised.

"What about getting my neck cracked, I don't want that...?"

No problem, there are many different adjustments to do. Just tell the doctor that and here at CT Spine & Disc Center we will honor your wishes!
