Scar tissue can restrict movement in adjacent joints, eventually creating injury to the joint itself. This type of restrictive tissue can become stronger and as non-elastic as connective tissue like tendons and cartilage. After an injury, collagen fibers are laid down in a sporadic and unorganized pattern in order to prevent the recurrence of injury. If you have ever patched a hole in a pair of jeans with the zig-zag stitch on your sewing machine, you know how this works.
Cortisone is a catabolic steroid which is intended to reduce inflammation by killing off the tissue in the inflamed area… now let me ask you, does that make any sense to you at all?
HELPED ME TREMENDOUSLY!!! My friend heard Dr. Troy on the radio and known as me and made me promise I would go go to him at his office. I had been suffering from migraines for 16 years. I was taking 16 to 20 pills a day and had been to several various doctors. The final outcomes had been, “you will need to live with them forever.” I was a living zombie, having migraines several times a week. It was affecting each part of my life. I ended up inside the emergency room and was told that I was messing up my liver. I was a mess!! Dr. Troy and the Absolute Life Team at Absolute Life Chiropractic have helped me tremendously! I no longer take ANY medication. I’ve only had 4 migraines inside the last 8 months! Thanks to Dr. Troy, I NOW have LIFE!!

Consider this: If I had a pebble in my shoe and I told you I was taking medicine for it, would you think I was a bit out of my mind? You probably would (and rightly so). The same mechanism happens when a vertebrae gets misaligned – and yet people thinking nothing of taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), muscle relaxers and even narcotic strength medications to deal with the pain. I have a question for you. Are any of these drugs doing anything to realign the spine?
You should first get to know what these treatments are about. This treatment involves spinal adjustments using manual therapy. The practitioner would also make use of various devices like the turn table to perform the adjustments. This therapy is rooted on the belief that pain and other body conditions are the result of subluxations in the spine and other parts. It would result to obstruction of the vital energy and that can lead to pain and conditions. The goal of the therapy is to correct the subluxations.
Know and accept your limits when carrying or lifting. Proper techniques are important in these regards, however, it is also in your interest to know your own strength and limitations. Ask for help when moving objects that will increase your back strain. If help is not available, find equipment that will help with moving or make smaller loads, if possible.
But the fact is that every pregnancy is different and every pregnant woman is different. They feel different things and emotions and even the physical signs are different. The only way to be hundred percent sure that you are pregnant, is if you check with a pregnancy test. But every woman can feel the difference in her body as it adjusts to the different hormone levels and the weight gain.
