Neuropathy "The Painful Enigma"
Neuropathy is a medical term used to characterize damage or injury to the nerves, generally referring to the peripheral nerves as opposed to the central nervous system. The complications which follow neuropathy depends largely on the type of nerves that are affected. According to Dr. Alex Jimenez, different neuropathies can cause numbness and tingling sensations, increased pain or the loss of ability to feel pain, muscle weakness with twitching and cramps, and even dizziness and/or loss of control over the bladder function. The following articles take a closer approach to describe several neuropathies, their causes, whether known or unknown and possible solutions for individuals to feel relief from their neuropathy symptoms. For more information, please feel free to contact us at (915) 850-0900 or text to call Dr. Jimenez personally at (915) 540-8444. http://bit.ly/chiropractorNeuropathies.

The Impact Of Chiari Malformation | Call: 915-850-0900 | Neuropathy "The Painful Enigma" | Scoop.it

Introduction

The brain and the spinal cord have a casual relationship in the nervous system as they help transport neuron signals to the rest of the body. These neuron signals travel through the various nerve pathways that provide motor-sensory functions to the arms, legs, neck, and back that help keep the body upright and function properly. When natural causes or traumatic issues affect the spinal cord, it can cause pain symptoms associated with nerve compression that overlaps with different chronic problems. When there is spinal nerve compression in the back, it may potentially involve low back or neck pain. Today’s article looks at a condition known as Chiari malformation, its associated symptoms with the spine, and how decompression and chiropractic care manage Chiari malformation. We refer patients to certified providers specializing in neurological treatments to help many individuals with Chiari malformation. We also guide our patients by referring to our associated medical providers based on their examination when it’s appropriate. We find that education is the solution to asking our providers insightful questions. Dr. Alex Jimenez DC provides this information as an educational service only. Disclaimer

What Is Chiari Malformation?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Have you been experiencing chronic headaches that are triggering neck stiffness? What about uncontrollable bladder issues? Are you feeling tingling sensations down your fingers and toes? Some of these symptoms are signs that you might risk developing Chiari malformation. Chiari malformation is uncommon when parts of the brain tissue extend into the spinal canal. This condition is a cluster of abnormalities that involves parts of the brain and cervical cord. The brain consists of 6 pieces that have different functions; they are:

  • Frontal lobe (Problem-solving, emotions, attention & concentration, etc.)
  • Parietal lobe (Sense of touch, visual perception, differentiation, etc.)
  • Temporal lobe (Memory, understanding languages)
  • Occipital lobe (Vision)
  • Cerebellum (Balance, motor activity, coordination)
  • The brain stem (spinal cord, breathing, sleep and wake cycles, etc.)

These different brain sections have a casual relationship with their correlated organs and muscles to keep the body moving. When there are deformities affecting the brain from Chiari malformation, studies reveal that the cerebellum is leaking out of the skull and pressing against the surrounding spinal canal, triggering symptoms along the spine.

Reflex Pain Chiropractor | Call: 915-850-0900 or 915-412-6677 | Neuropathy "The Painful Enigma" | Scoop.it

Reflex pain is a complex condition that involves the body’s pain withdrawal reflex failing to turn off after the event that triggered the pain, so the pain sensations continue. This is a neurological condition known as the withdrawal reflex. It occurs when the body and brain undergo a chain of reactions to remove an affected body part from dangerous situations/stimuli. A typical example is a vehicle crash or accident. During the process, the body’s reflex muscle\s in the injured area tighten to protect the specific body part/s from further damage.

 

The reflex can feel like a muscle spasm that goes away over time. However, in the case of reflex pain, the signals keep firing. Reflex pain can occur all over the body as the muscles overcompensate to handle the prolonged pain; secondary injuries often develop. An example could be reflex pain in the ankle caused by injury or problems in the hips and back, where the individual tries to avoid moving the ankle in a specific way to prevent and avoid the pain symptoms. Individuals with reflex pain also experience headaches and referred spine and extremity pain. Reflex pain can become a cycle of symptoms that include:

 

  • Unusual tightness
  • Stiffness
  • Pain
  • Contracture - hardening or shortening of the affected muscles, tendons, or other tissues.
  • Decreased functional abilities.

Somatic Pain

Somatic pain causes receptors in tissues including the skin, muscles, connective tissues, joints, and skeleton to be activated. Stimuli like force trauma, vibration, extreme temperature, or inflammation/swelling activate these receptors. The pain is often described as:

 

  • Aching
  • Gnawing
  • Cramping
  • Sharp

 

Somatic pain is often localized to a particular area that is constant and stimulated by movement. There are two types.

 

  • Superficial pain occurs when everyday injuries activate pain receptors in the skin and mucous membranes.
  • Deep somatic pain occurs when stimuli activate pain receptors deeper in the body, including the tendons, joints, bones, and muscles. Deep body pain usually feels more like aching.
  • Pain can be confined to a local area or radiate to other areas of the body, depending on the extent of the injury.

 

Somatic pain can come from a variety of different potential causes that include:

 

  • Injury to joints or bones.
  • Trauma.
  • Fall or collision that damages connective tissues.
  • Strained muscles from overuse.
  • Bone fracture.
  • Arthritis that causes swelling in the joints.
  • Diseases that affect connective tissues.
  • Bone or skin cancers.

 

Sometimes these reflexes can stay in the on position and keep the body from achieving full relaxation.

 

In the nervous system, a body part is stimulated, and the message travels through the spinal cord and into the brain. The information is processed, then sent back through the spinal cord to the level that activates the specific body part. The reflexes transmit faster staying at the same spinal level without having to travel to the brain and back again.

 

During reflex pain, the body’s muscles are unable to relax, which is necessary for motion/movement. This prolonged contraction generates added pain and causes imbalances that can decrease excitability in the muscles. This can increase the activation of brain receptors that receive pain signals to respond by telling them to shorten and contract.

Therapy

Body misalignment can cause muscles to spasm, causing the nerves to stretch in an awkward way, compress, and get twisted and tangled around other nerves or other tissues. This disrupts communication resulting in pain, illness, and ailments that can lead to other health problems. Chiropractic care can address reflex pain by realigning the spine and improving joint motion and nerve conduction.

 

Chiropractic restores the body to its full and proper function by activating the natural healing abilities. Manual and mechanical spinal decompression realigns the vertebrae, reducing swelling, blockages, and nerve stress. A comprehensive examination will identify potential dysfunctional areas of the body using palpitations to identify which muscles are involved. Once identified, chiropractic, massage, and physical therapy options can be prescribed to rebalance the body’s muscles, and restore their ability to contract and relax normally.

 

  • Patient education will be provided concerning self-assessment techniques, instruction on how to treat pain, and an anti-inflammatory diet.
  • An exercise and stretching program will help maintain the adjustments, keep the body flexible, and strengthen the body.
  • Patients are helped to understand how to take control of their pain.

Sciatic Nerve Repercussions | Call: 915-850-0900 or 915-412-6677

Sciatic Nerve Repercussions | Call: 915-850-0900 or 915-412-6677 | Neuropathy "The Painful Enigma" | Scoop.it

Sciatica is a radiculopathy, which is irritation of the nerve as it exits the spine and is typically caused by compression/pinching along the nerve's path. Most sciatica cases improve within a few weeks of the injury incident. Left untreated, it can become chronic sciatica and can have long-term repercussions and effects. A herniated disc is the most common cause if it bulges next to the nerve; it can pinch off the nerve or leak fluid onto the nerve, causing inflammation, swelling, pain, numbness, and weakness. Another common cause is spinal stenosis. As the body ages, the canal through which the nerve and spinal cord run can begin to narrow, placing pressure on the nerves. Then there are muscle spasms, spinal fractures, and spinal cancer. Anything that changes the curvature of the spine, including pregnancy, can cause sciatica.

Repercussions From Sciatica

The repercussions can vary or be a combination that includes:

Chronic Pain

The pain can be anywhere along the nerve; typically, it travels from the lower spine through the buttocks, down the back of the leg, and into the foot.

 

  • The condition can cause various types of pain: Burning, electrical, or shooting pain in the low back.
  • Symptoms can come and go and may present only when sitting, standing, lying, or engaged in a particular activity.
  • The severity of the pain can vary from mild to severe, mildly uncomfortable, to limiting function.

Posture Problems

  • When the body experiences chronic pain in a localized area, the body's natural reaction is to avoid placing pressure, twisting or bending, or using a specific body part, manipulating healthy posture or walking gait to protect the low back or legs from pain.
  • This is referred to as muscle/posture guarding, which removes pressure from the site but alters the body's natural alignment, affecting the spine's characteristics and causing adverse side effects, like upper back and neck pain, headaches, and fatigue.
  • Unhealthy and awkward postures can negatively affect digestion, organ function, and breathing.

Loss of Balance

  • Sciatica commonly causes numbness and tingling in the leg, calf, foot, and toes.
  • The hidden danger behind numbness; it alters the body's proprioception or awareness of its position.
  • When proprioception becomes inhibited or altered, communication signals from the body to the brain/vice versa get jumbled/interrupted, confusing the brain, throwing the body off balance.
  • This can result in falling injuries.

Numbness or Weakness

  • Sciatica is more problematic if the pain comes with neurological symptoms like numbness, muscle, or leg weakness.
  • This means there is an increased level of possible nerve damage if muscular weakness, which requires aggressive treatment.

Declining Reflexes

  • Depending on where the nerve is compressed, pain and numbness can affect the lower leg area and feet.
  • Damage to the nerve can cause the inability to flex the foot up.
  • The knee-jerk reflex, known as the patellar reflex, is the kicking motion of the lower leg when tapped on the patellar tendon.
  • Sciatica can numb the area, causing a delayed reaction or severe unresponsiveness to stimulation.

Permanent Nerve Damage

  • If left untreated, neurological symptoms like numbness and leg weakness can progress to permanent nerve damage.
  • However, this happens rarely but explains the importance of taking the injury seriously so full recovery is achievable.

Introduction

With trillions of nerves that are inhibiting the body, the nervous system is consist of the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system, and its job is to make sure that the neuron signals are traveling to and fro from the brain to the entire body. When there is an unwanted pathogen that enters the body and starts to disrupt the neuron signals, it can cause a variety of neurodegenerative disorders and neuropathic problems to affect the body over time. In this 2 part series, we will be taking a look at what is neuropathic pain and its symptoms. In Part 1, we discussed and understand what is polyneuropathy and how different polyneuropathies can affect the body. By referring patients to qualified and skilled providers who specialized in neurological services. To that end, and when appropriate, we advise our patients to refer to our associated medical providers based on their examination. We find that education is the key to asking valuable questions to our providers. Dr. Alex Jimenez DC provides this information as an educational service only. Disclaimer

What Is Neuropathic Pain?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When there is pain that is radiating from the nerves, the spinal cord, or the brain, it is known as neuropathic pain. This type of pain doesn’t originate in the bones, muscles, or organs but is a direct consequence of diseases that is affecting the somatosensory system. Research studies have shown that neuropathic pain is caused by various central and peripheral nerve disorders that cause lesions in the nervous system. This can be problematic for individuals who have neuropathic pain because it can cause the body to appear normal but can be experienced in other parts of the body. Other research studies have found that neuropathic pain can cause mild to severe pain symptoms that can distort existing neuron signals, create new ones, or even prevent the neuron signals from transferring throughout the entire body.

 

The Symptoms

Since neuropathic pain in the body is chronic and is due to damaged nerves, research shows that even though neuropathic pain is a chronic progressive nerve disorder that can occur from injuries or infections that affect the body, it can send unprompted signals to the brain causing it to be dysfunctional. Other symptoms that neuropathic pain can cause to the body include:

Pinched Nerve Healing Signs | Call: 915-850-0900 or 915-412-6677

Pinched Nerve Healing Signs | Call: 915-850-0900 or 915-412-6677 | Neuropathy "The Painful Enigma" | Scoop.it

A pinched nerve may not feel like it is healing. This is because of the soreness, aches, discomfort, and tingling feelings/sensations around the affected area. This could be the neck, shoulder, arm, hands, back, legs, and feet. However, when the achiness and tingling move around and shift, it is a sign of the pinched nerve healing.

Amount of Time For Pinched Nerve Healing

Waiting for the nerve to heal is not a recommended treatment option, as most pinched nerves do not fully recover on their own. A pinched nerve usually takes around six weeks to heal with proper treatment. The longer the nerve stays pinched, the more likely there will be permanent damage. To keep the pinched nerve from returning and getting worse, individuals are recommended to incorporate a pre-habilitation plan that involves continuing rehabilitation exercises to strengthen and keep the muscles, ligaments, and nerves loose, and adjusting posture, work, exercise, and diet habits to prevent re-injuring the nerve or cause new injury/s. 

Common Nerve Sites

Nerves run throughout the body, so it’s possible to experience a pinched nerve anywhere. The most common pinched nerve sites occur at joints where there is constant movement. These areas include:

 

  • Neck
  • Shoulders
  • Lower Back
  • Arms
  • Hands
  • Feet

Healing Signs

Individuals often believe that their pinched nerve is getting worse because of soreness, aches and pains, and weird sensations. When the pain stays in one area, that could be a sign that the nerve has not been fully stretched/released and/or that there is still compression taking place. Treatment and healing include feeling the symptoms but in a different way. 

 

The symptoms will move up, down, or around depending on where the pinched nerve is. Treatment takes the nerve/s and stretches/elongates them, but the pinch created a nerve crimp, crease, fold that wants to return to the pinched position. 

 

This is why continued treatment and stretching are recommended, as a spasm, trauma, or some awkward movement can cause the nerve to re-fold to the pinched position or cause a whole new pinch.

Chiropractic Release

Chiropractic treats pinched/compressed nerves with several therapeutic modalities. These include:

 

  • Body Adjustments
  • Flexion-distraction
  • Therapeutic massage
  • Traction
  • Inversion
  • Laser therapy
  • Ultrasound

 

Combined, these methods can help heal pinched nerves and keep them from recurring.

Body Composition

Skeletal Muscle

Skeletal muscle is a major muscle group. These muscles are attached to the bone by the tendons. Skeletal muscles incorporate nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue to operate as a unit. Each skeletal muscle consists of cells that come together that form bundles of skeletal muscle fibers.

 

  • Strength training stimulates the muscle fibers. When combined with proper nutrition causes hypertrophy/muscle growth.
  • Muscles contract and shorten to pull bones and joints, allowing body movement.
  • The nervous system signals the nerves in the muscle/s and triggers these contractions.
  • Skeletal muscle helps the body:
  • Maintain posture
  • Generate body heat
  • Stability to the bones and joints

Cancer Back Pain | Call: 915-850-0900 or 915-412-6677

Cancer Back Pain | Call: 915-850-0900 or 915-412-6677 | Neuropathy "The Painful Enigma" | Scoop.it

Back pain and soreness are widespread conditions that affect all genders, races, and lifestyles. The causes for back pain are varied from injury, poor posture, arthritis, age, overuse, etc. If back pain is frequent, perhaps the last assumption is that the pain could be caused by cancer. While it’s far from the most common causes, cancer back pain is possible, which makes consulting a doctor that will figure out the root cause, especially if there are other non-related symptoms, and treat the back pain very important.

Cancer Back Pain

Back pain that could be caused by cancer usually occurs with other symptoms and include:

 

  • Back pain that is not related to movement.
  • Pain does not get worse with activity.
  • Back pain usually presents at night or early in the morning and fades away or improves as the day progresses.
  • Back pain persists even after physical therapy or other treatments.
  • Changes in bowel movements or blood in urine or stool.
  • Unexplained, sudden weight loss.
  • Unexplained fatigue/exhaustion.
  • Weakness, tingling, or numbness in the arms or legs.
  • Back pain does not have to be severe to be cancer, as it can range in severity.
  • Having a family history of cancer and these symptoms can increase the risk.

Types of Cancer That Can Contribute To Back Pain

Types of cancer that can form around, in, and near the spine can cause back pain. These include:

Spinal Tumor

  • A spinal tumor can grow in the spinal bone or the membranes around the spinal cord.
  • The spine is a common source for bone metastasis, where cancer starts in one location and spreads to others.
  • 30 to 70 percent of individuals with cancer spreads to the spine, according to the American Association of Neurological Surgeons - AANS.

Lung

  • Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers that can spread to the spine.
  • A lung tumor can press on the spine, affecting nerve transmissions.
  • An individual with lung cancer may notice becoming tired/fatigued more easily, shortness of breath, coughing up blood, and back pain.

Breast

  • Rare but possible breast cancer symptom.
  • Breast cancers can metastasize to the back.
  • Like lung cancers, some breast cancer tumors can press on nerves connected to the spine, causing discomfort and pain.

Gastrointestinal

  • Cancers of the stomach, colon, and rectum can cause back pain.
  • The pain radiates from where the cancer is to the back.

Tissue and Blood Cancers

Blood and tissue cancers like:

  • Multiple myeloma
  • Lymphoma
  • Melanoma
  • Can cause back pain.

Diagnosing Cancer and Back Pain

Medical treatments for back pain-related cancer depend on its type and how advanced it is. A doctor will consider symptoms and medical history when diagnosing possible back pain causes. Because cancer is a rare cause of back pain, a doctor may recommend various treatments before a full cancer work-up. The doctor may order imaging studies and blood testing if the pain persists after chiropractic, physical therapy, or anti-inflammatory medications. These tests will help identify potential cancer markers causing back pain.

 

  • Treatments usually include chemotherapy and radiation to shrink a tumor.
  • A doctor will recommend surgery to remove a tumor.

Chiropractic

Cancer patients have found chiropractic treatment to be effective for:

 

  • Pain management.
  • Flexibility improvement.
  • Mobility improvement.
  • Strengthening muscles.
  • Helping to reduce stress.
  • Helping the body function more efficiently.

 

Chiropractic physiotherapy benefits patients undergoing chemotherapy, as it helps the body withstand the debilitating effects of the treatment based on the whole-body approach.

Body Composition

Don’t Hate Dieting

Individuals hate dieting, usually because they go about it the wrong way. Individuals do not need to starve themselves and live at the gym. Reaching quick weight loss goals might sound appealing; however, going through it for an extended time can make individuals feel:

 

  • Tired
  • Depressed
  • Unmotivated

 

Individuals can find a nutrition plan/exercise balance that works for them and their lifestyle. For some individuals, dieting alone is effective, but more than likely, they have increased metabolisms. Trying to lose fat by only cutting calories can be difficult for individuals with smaller metabolisms. The goal is to find a balance between diet and exercise. This does not mean having to go on an extreme diet, skip meals, or cut out entire macronutrient groups like fat or carbs, as the body needs both of these nutrients. Finding a sustainable long-term nutrition plan takes planning and support. A dietician, nutritionist, or health coach can offer a variety of nutrition and exercise plans customized to the individual.

Arthritis can be a debilitating disease that interferes with everyday life. There are over 20% of adults aged 65 and older that have arthritis along with all the symptoms like pain, stiffness, swelling, and decreased range of motion. The most commonly affected joints include the shoulders, hands, spine, hips, and knees. Arthritis results from damage to joint cartilage from various factors such as age, wear and tear, injury, being overweight, and disease. Medication and surgery are the most common treatment options. An arthritis chiropractor can offer a conservative, natural, non-invasive option to manage symptoms.

Arthritis Chiropractor Helps By

While arthritis, either caused by wear and tear - Osteoarthritis or disease - Rheumatoid Arthritis cannot be cured. An arthritis chiropractor can help manage symptoms and prevent progression. Chiropractors are trained to use various techniques to help alleviate pain and tension, including arthritis. Chiropractic treatment aims to alleviate pain by adjusting, massaging, and realigning the musculoskeletal system to relieve stress, stretch the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and restore balance within the body. They open the body to allow proper/optimal nerve energy and blood circulation. This is beneficial for arthritic joints to reduce unnecessary strain, translating to reduced wear on the joints and keeping the body active.

Benefits

There are significant benefits that regular chiropractic treatment can offer. These include:

 

  • Restored range of motion
  • Joint pain relief
  • Inflammation alleviation
  • Improved nerve function for optimal tissue healing
  • Improved biomechanics
  • Improved flexibility

Treatment

After an in-depth assessment, the chiropractor will recommend the best treatment options. Treatments include:

Pain Management

  • Pain relief is possible without medications with options like:
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Percussive massage
  • Traction therapy
  • Heating pads

Chiropractic Adjustments and Physical Therapy

  • Regular adjustments will keep the body optimally aligned and functioning smoothly.
  • Arthritis chiropractors can recognize the most subtle changes.

Lifestyle Adjustments

  • Healthy lifestyle adjustments help manage arthritis.
  • Guidance on healthy habits that include:
  • Anti-inflammatory foods
  • Weight loss
  • Proper sleep habits
  • Exercise training
  • Stress management

 

The sooner chiropractic care is sought out, the better to prevent symptoms from worsening. Chiropractic can generate great results with less need for medication/s or surgery.

Body Composition

Identifying The Risk of Sarcopenia and Decreased Mobility

As the body ages, it begins to lose muscle mass, and as more sedentary behavior is adopted, the rate of loss increases along with age-related injury. Identifying these age-related changes in muscle and how they relate to frailty risk can be challenging to identify and track. By accurately measuring fat-free mass in each region of the body, Skeletal Muscle Index - SMI quickly specifies muscle mass and frailty risk. Sarcopenia and frailty specifically affect the elderly population, affecting mortality, cognitive function, and quality of life. Loss of muscle in the arms and legs is associated with:

 

  • Reductions in mobility
  • Increased risk of falls
  • Frailty
  • Extended hospital stays

 

Falls and fractures frequently result in a cycle of muscle deterioration. Analysis tools can help track body composition changes to minimize muscle wasting and the risk of impaired mobility. Assessing skeletal muscle mass in outpatient and hospital settings can decrease debilitating outcomes before they happen. The InBody analysis is quick and easy, providing a calculation for skeletal muscle index and the sum of the lean mass in the arms and legs. The ease of performing the InBody test provides physicians more time to work with and educate individuals on adopting lifestyle changes to help prevent sarcopenia.

Cold Weather Muscle Spasms, Cramps | Call: 915-850-0900 or 915-412-6677

Cold Weather Muscle Spasms, Cramps | Call: 915-850-0900 or 915-412-6677 | Neuropathy "The Painful Enigma" | Scoop.it

Muscle spasms also referred to as muscle cramps, are painful contractions and tightening of the muscles. They are common, involuntary, and unpredictable. Temperature drops and cold weather can cause the muscles and joints to contract and tighten, leading to spasms and pain. Chiropractic, physical therapy massage, exercises, stretching, and an anti-inflammatory diet can bring relief and help strengthen the muscles to prevent future episodes.

Muscle Spasms

Spasms are common and can affect any of the muscles. They can involve part of a muscle, all of a muscle, or several muscles in a group. Spasms occur when the muscle/s involuntary and forcibly contract uncontrollably and are unable to relax. The most common sites for muscle spasms include:

 

  • Hands
  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Legs
  • Thighs
  • Calves
  • Thighs
  • Feet

How Cold Affects the Muscles

As the weather gets colder, this causes the muscles in the body to lose heat, causing them to contract. As a result, the muscles and joints become tighter, stiffer, and decrease mobility and range of motion. This forces the muscles to work harder than usual to compensate. This can increase the fatigue of the muscles, leading to more prolonged bouts of pain and discomfort after physical activity, movement, exercise, etc.

Symptoms and Causes

 A cramp can last a few seconds or last up to 15 minutes. During a muscle spasm, the following may be experienced:

 

  • Twitching in the muscle.
  • Pain in the muscle.
  • Throbbing.
  • Hardness and/or stiffness.
  • The muscles appear physically distorted.

 

Because the muscles have to work harder, the cold weather can increase muscle spasms. One of the most common causes of muscle spasms is overuse and fatigue. However, exact causes vary from person to person. Some experts believe that one or more of the following contribute to the spasms/cramps, and they include:

 

  • Dehydration.
  • Stress.
  • Not stretching the body regularly.
  • Muscle fatigue.
  • Restricted blood circulation.
  • Involuntary nerve discharge/s.
  • Over-exercising.
  • Exercising in the heat.
  • Exhaustion of salts and minerals:
  • Potassium
  • Magnesium
  • Calcium

 

Possible causes for leg cramps at night or nocturnal leg cramps specifically include:

 

  • Sitting for too long without moving around to keep circulation healthy.
  • Sitting with unhealthy posture.
  • Overusing the muscles.
  • Standing or working on hard floors.

Dealing With The Cold

One way to deal with the cold is to warm up before any physical activity. Taking a few minutes to get the heart rate up can increase the blood flow and flexibility of the muscles. This will ensure the muscles are functioning correctly and avoid the need to work harder to stop spasms. When a cramp strikes, there are a few steps to try to alleviate the spasm:

 

  • Stretching the affected area.
  • Massaging the affected area manually with a massage roller, percussive massager.
  • Stand up.
  • Move around.
  • Apply heat or ice.
  • A warm bath, shower with massage setting if possible.
  • Ibuprofen and acetaminophen.
  • Vitamin B12 complex can help prevent cramps.

Body Composition

Getting Back To Fitness

Get back into regular exercising with a few tips for making the transition as smooth as possible.

Start Slow

  • Don't try to jump back into exercise in attempting to crush out a challenging workout.
  • Commit to a few light workouts a week that integrate stretching pre and post-exercise.
  • Over-exerting the body increases the risk of injuries, motivation loss, and prolonged exhaustion.

Create a Workout Schedule That Works For You

  • Routines and habits can help stay on track.
  • Build a sustainable exercise routine to stay focused and committed.
  • Find times that work.

Polymyositis: Inflammatory Myopathy | Call: 915-850-0900 or 915-412-6677

Polymyositis: Inflammatory Myopathy | Call: 915-850-0900 or 915-412-6677 | Neuropathy "The Painful Enigma" | Scoop.it

Polymyositis is a disease that causes the body's muscles to become irritated and inflamed. It can affect the muscles all over the body. The muscles gradually begin to break down and weaken, making everyday movements difficult. This disease falls into a category known as inflammatory myopathies.

Polymyositis Unknown Causation

The causes of polymyositis are currently unknown. However, experts believe it could be associated with or triggered by a virus or an autoimmune reaction. An autoimmune response is when the body attacks itself along with the body's tissues. It's seen in individuals ages 31 to 60 and is rarely seen in individuals younger than 18. In some instances, medication can lead to an allergic reaction/response that causes muscle irritation and damage. But in most cases, healthcare experts are not able to find the exact cause.

Symptoms

The condition can affect the muscles all over the body. Physical activities like walking, getting up from a chair, or lifting objects can become difficult to perform. It can also affect the muscles that allow for eating and breathing. The muscles at the center of the body tend to be affected the most. Common symptoms include:

 

  • Muscle pain.
  • Muscle stiffness.
  • Muscle weakness, specifically in the abdomen, shoulders, upper arms, and hips.
  • Joint pain and stiffness.
  • Breathing problems.
  • Problems swallowing.
  • Abnormal weight loss can become an issue if there are problems with swallowing.
  • Irregular heart rhythms if the heart muscle/myocardium becomes inflamed.
  • Individuals may notice they have trouble climbing stairs or lifting their arms.
  • The inflammation can worsen, causing pain and weakness that affects the wrists, lower arms, and ankles.

Diagnosis

Diagnosis begins with the individual's medical history, family medical history if necessary, and a physical examination. The examination includes seeing and feeling the strength of the muscles. Tests will be required that include:

Blood Tests

  • Blood tests allow the doctor to see if there are signs of muscle inflammation.
  • They also show if there are abnormal proteins that form in autoimmune diseases.

Electromyogram EMG

  • This test can be used to find abnormal electrical activity in the affected muscles.

MRI

  • Magnets and computer graphic imagery are used to help the doctor inspect for inflammation in the body.

Muscle Biopsy

  • A small piece of muscle tissue is removed to be analyzed with a microscope.

Treatment

Treatment depends on how severe the condition is, individual symptoms, age, and overall health. Currently, there is no cure for polymyositis, but symptoms can be managed. Individuals are recommended to utilize more than one type of treatment because the treatment plan may also need to be changed as treatment progresses. Treatments include:

Anti-inflammatory Medication

Steroid medication can help manage the disease and reduce symptoms, and corticosteroids can help ease inflammation in the body. The symptoms improve within 4 to 6 weeks, and a healthcare provider can lower the dosage after the symptoms decrease to reduce and ease any side effects.

Immunosuppressive Medication

  • These medications block or slow down the body's immune system responses.
  • Talk with a doctor about the risks, benefits, and side effects of all medications.

Chiropractic and Physical therapy

  • Chiropractic treatment and physical therapy can help:
  • Aligning the spine to provide optimal nerve energy and blood circulation.
  • Therapeutic massage to stimulate and keep the muscles loose.
  • Specific exercises to help stretch and strengthen the muscles.
  • These can help keep the muscles from shrinking.

Heat therapy and Rest

  • Heat therapy and allowing the body to rest thoroughly can help decrease pain symptoms.

Special Braces 

  • Body, hip, and leg braces can help support the muscles and help with mobility.

Complications

Polymyositis left untreated can lead to severe complications. The muscles become weaker, increasing the risk of falling and limiting daily activities.

 

  • If the chest muscles are affected, there could be problems with breathing that can lead to respiratory failure.
  • If the digestive tract is affected, malnutrition and unintentional weight loss can result.
  • Polymyositis poorly managed well can cause severe disability.

Body Composition

 

Nutrition and Muscle Growth

Protein

  • Protein is the foundation for gaining muscle.
  • This essential component is for all of the body's daily functions.
  • It is essential to balance protein increase with overall diet.

Complex Carbs

  • Carbs are the body's fuel source.
  • Carbs should be a daily element of nutritional intake because they are the primary component.
  • Acquiring energy
  • Preventing muscle weakness and degradation

Consuming Carbs

  • Understanding how accurate results only happen when both sides work together.
  • Healthy consumption of protein and carbohydrates can help muscle growth and sustain optimal health for all body types.

Nervous System Health and Optimal Body Function | Call: 915-850-0900 or 915-412-6677 | Neuropathy "The Painful Enigma" | Scoop.it

Optimal nervous system health is the key to maximum body function and overall health. Individuals don’t really think about their nervous system until symptoms from injury, disease, or nerve problems present. The nervous system consists of billions of neurons that connect/network the brain with the rest of the body.

Nervous System Health

All of the body's systems, organs, and tissues have nerves attached to them. The brain engages with this network to control and coordinate bodily functions. Functions include:

 

  • Heart
  • Lungs
  • Immune system
  • Digestive system
  • Reproductive system

 

Every function the body performs requires brain-body communication through the nervous system. The brain communicates with the nervous system to regulate the body to the environment it is in. For example:

 

  • If it’s hot, the body sweats.
  • If it’s cold, the body shivers.
  • If there is danger, the fight or flight response activates.
  • All are directed by the brain transmitting signals and messages through the nervous system.

Body Function

Optimal body function means that all bodily functions are normal, active, and healthy. Everything is working as it should. When the body functions at less than 100%, it can develop into more serious problems little by little. Like a vehicle that starts making a little sound that seems like nothing, then after a few days, weeks, months, it becomes a massive popping, grinding, starting, stopping, emergency, when vital information that regulates function gets lost in transmission from the brain to the body, health declines.

Flowing Spinal Highway

The vital information/communication between the brain and the body flow through the spinal column. The super information highway/spinal cord travels down the spinal column. Branching off the spinal cord are spinal nerve roots that go to every system, organ, and tissue in the body. The spinal bones are lined up like an electrical conduit channel for the spinal cord. The vertebrae should be lined up and move properly, allowing optimal blood and nerve circulation without any obstruction or interference.

 

When the spine shifts out of place, creating misalignment, moving properly becomes hindered, causing discomfort and pain, along with the vital communication needed to regulate maximum function not able to get through. This leads to malfunction within the body and decreases health and well-being. Spinal misalignment that interferes with nerve message transmission is called a vertebral subluxation. Chiropractic healthcare professionals are trained to detect and correct spinal subluxations. They realign the spine's bones to restore nervous system health and internal communication for proper body function.

Body Composition

 

Prebiotics Can Help With

Inflammation

Inflammation is a normal function of the immune system; however, chronic inflammation can cause damage to the body. Chronic inflammation is associated with:

 

  • Obesity
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Other diseases and conditions.

 

Having a balance of healthy gut microbiota helps decrease chronic inflammation and the risk of disease.

Gastrointestinal Diseases and Conditions

Prebiotics also ferment in the colon producing short-chain fatty acids. These provide energy for the colon’s epithelial cells that line and protect the colon. Prebiotics increase the protection provided by the epithelial cells, reducing the risk for gastrointestinal conditions like:

 

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome - IBS
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Cancer.
  • Prebiotics can also reduce symptoms of gastrointestinal conditions.

Neurological System

The central nervous system is also known as the brain and spinal cord. However, many do not know about the enteric nervous system, which includes the gastrointestinal tract. The link between the enteric and central nervous systems involves cognitive and emotional functions. Prebiotics increase and promote healthy gut microbiota to help manage:

 

  • Mood
  • Learning
  • Memory
  • Certain psychological disorders

Tinnitus and its Alternative Treatment | Call: 915-850-0900 or 915-412-6677 | Neuropathy "The Painful Enigma" | Scoop.it

Tinnitus is defined as the perception of sound without an external acoustic stimulus. It is a prevalent complaint in ENT offices, but the etiology of this condition has not yet been elucidated fully. However, it is believed that the root cause of the sound is perceived without any external stimulation is due to abnormal neural activity along the hearing path from the cochlear apparatus to the auditory cortex. In addition, tinnitus accompanies a wide array of conditions like sleep disturbances, stress, and reduced work efficiency. Furthermore, its treatment is complex, and 5-15% of those patients with tinnitus report that the symptoms are still present. Therefore, alternative therapies such as supplements and acupuncture have been proposed to reduce tinnitus symptoms positively.

Acupuncture Therapy as Tinnitus Treatment:

Acupuncture as tinnitus treatment has been extensively reported in books. Indeed, acupuncture’s effectiveness in treating tinnitus relies on the electric stimulations promoted by the needles, which initiates action potentials to rebalance the body’s systems. 

A study to determine acupuncture efficacy to reduce tinnitus symptoms was performed in 105 patients. This study compared the effects of two types of acupuncture, verum acupuncture and sham acupuncture, for five weeks, twice weekly. In addition, the study used the Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI) questionnaire and the visual analog scale to measure the treatment’s efficacy.

THI: 

The Tinnitus Handicap Inventory is a survey of 25 questions that are answered by the patient with a scoring system of 3 options:

Yes (4 points)

 

Sometimes (2 points) 

 

No (0 points)

 

After answering the 25 items, the points are added, and the result classifies the degree of tinnitus as grade 1 (0–16 points), grade 2 (18–36 points), grade 3 (38–56 points), grade 4 (58–76 points), or grade 5 (78–100 points). This survey is associated with the quality of life of the patient.

 

VSA

The Visual Analog Scale is a verbally administered scale to determine the degree of discomfort caused by tinnitus. It is ranged by scores starting with 0, indicating no discomfort, up to 10, which means an unbearable amount of pain.

 

Furthermore, this study reported that the group with the lowest THI and VAS scores was the one who received verum acupuncture. Additionally, this study reported a three-month follow-up, which determined that the tinnitus symptoms increased after stopping the acupuncture sessions.

 

One of the most exciting findings in tinnitus acupuncture treatment is that the VAS score decreases from 9.56 to 2.88. This same finding is reported by many authors who used the THI score in their studies. Nevertheless, this study concluded that acupuncture therapy is highly effective in reducing tinnitus symptoms, and it can potentially increase the patient’s quality of life. However, the changes promoted by this treatment are temporary and seem to diminish over time. 

Ginkgo biloba:

Over time pharmaceutical treatments have been used to diminish the severity of tinnitus. Indeed, medications like calcium channel blockers, vasodilators, muscle relaxants, anticonvulsants, antihistamines, anesthetics, and even barbiturates form part of the tinnitus treatment. However, these medications have shown little to no effects when compared with placebo. 

 

Once again, the lack of an etiology makes tinnitus hard to treat. However, new research has pointed to oxidative stress as one of the proposed mechanisms for the development of tinnitus. In addition, the increase of glutamate as an excitatory neurotransmitter in combination with neurotoxicity leads to the inflammation and necrosis of dendrites. Consequently, dendrite damage and inflammation of the afferent cochlear Corti organ cells is due to the production of free radicals.

 

The literature strongly supports the use of Gingko Biloba to treat tinnitus due to its varied bioactive constituents such as phytochemicals including alkanes, lipids, sterols, benzoids, carotenoids, phenylpropanoids, carbohydrates, flavonoids, and terpenoids. Furthermore, the Gingko Biloba acts like a monoamine-oxidase inhibitor (MAOI), improving tinnitus symptoms caused by ischemia. This mechanism of action is mainly due to myricetin, quercetin, ginkgolide, and bilobalide terpenoids. In conclusion, Gingko Biloba can reduce tinnitus symptoms by regulating vascular tone, and it acts as a scavenging agent of primary and secondary free radicals.

 

Despite all the medical research in tinnitus, no recommended treatment can reduce all the symptoms. Indeed, this is associated with tinnitus being a multifactorial disease and should be carefully evaluated to determine its treatment. The conclusion of many experts on this topic determines that the treatment should be a combination of sustainable and secure treatments. Therefore, Ginkgo Biloba and acupuncture studies can be used together to improve tinnitus outcomes in a conservative measure. – Ana Paola Rodríguez Arciniega, MS

Ashwagandha Root and Stress Response | Call: 915-850-0900 or 915-412-6677

Ashwagandha Root and Stress Response | Call: 915-850-0900 or 915-412-6677 | Neuropathy "The Painful Enigma" | Scoop.it

Stress is part of our lifestyle, and it is also a phenomenon that is crucial for our development, survival, and “fight-or-flight” response. As a matter of fact, stress was developed as a protective mechanism to respond to a potentially dangerous situation or environment. However, stress is a constant factor in our daily lives.

 

It can establish complicated health issues that correspond with physiopathology of cardiovascular heart disease, panic attacks, impaired memory and cognition, hypertension, digestive problems, and even autoimmune disorders.

 

Furthermore, stress modulation by the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, heat shock proteins (Hsp70), stress-activated c-Jun N-terminal protein kinase (JNK-1), cortisol, and nitric oxide (NO) can be controlled with the use of adaptogens. Indeed, adaptogens such as Ashwagandha can interact with several molecular pathways to regulate the endocrinological balance and reduce the detrimental effects of stress on our wellbeing.

Mechanisms of the stress response.

Any form of external stimuli can initiate the stress response. However, the physiological mechanism is mediated by the HPA axis.

 

The physiological response to stress starts with stimuli that are perceived by the hypothalamus. These stimuli can be:

 

  • Traumatic stimuli.
  • Emotional or psychogenic stimuli.
  • Diurnal rhythm.
  • Pressure sensitivity.
  • Pro-inflammatory cytokines or inflammation.

 

Once the hypothalamus recognizes these stimulants, the corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) secretion starts a downstream reaction through the HPA-axis. Following this first signal, the pituitary gland releases adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) to promote the secretion of adrenal glucocorticoids like cortisol.

 

This mechanism is far more complicated since gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and serotonin seem to have a critical role in releasing CRH from the hypothalamus. In addition, the interplay of an inflammatory milieu consisting o an elevated concentration of IL-1, IL-2, IL-6, and inflammatory mediators like TNF-a can influence the secretion of CRH.

 

Once the stress response starts, we can expect behavioral and physiological adaptation changes.

 

Behavioral Adaptation

• Altered cognition and attention span level 

• Increased alertness

• Altered sensory threshold

• Sharpened memory and sensation

• Stress-induced analgesia

• Suppression of feeding behavior

• Suppression of reproductive behavior 

 

Peripheral Adaptation

• Oxygen and nutrients directed to the CNS and stressed body sites 

• Detoxification from toxic products

• Altered cardiovascular tone

• Containment of the stress-response 

 

While the adaptative effects of stress might seem varied, they are too good to be true since a chronic state of stress might develop depression, accelerate cognitive aging, metabolic syndrome, impaired reproductive function, growth retardation, and interference of cell-mediated immunity. These before mentioned complications are due to an excess of circulating cortisol that impairs the role of multiple tissues and systems. Therefore, it is crucial to modulate cortisol secretion to prevent these stress-associated conditions.

Ashwagandha 

The Ashwagandha root is an adaptogen from traditional Ayurvedic medicine. This root is a member of the Solanaceae family and has a long history of use as a vitality improver, as it is used to eradicate fatigue. 

 

Nowadays, studies with Ashwagandha prove that it has multiple health benefits like reducing inflammation, neuroprotective, adaptogenic, memory-enhancing, sleep-inducing, and anxiolytic properties. Furthermore, in animal studies, the use of Ashwagandha improved the stress response, reduced free radical induced-oxidative stress while being safe and well-tolerated.

In human studies performed in obese adults, Ashwagandha improved mental wellbeing, eating behaviors, and reduced stress by maintaining endocrinological balance, including adequate testosterone concentrations.

 

Recently a study performed over eight weeks in patients with anxiety and stress treated with different concentrations of Ashwagandha root reported exciting results. Furthermore, this study used two different doses of Ashwagandha and compared the results to a placebo-controlled group. In this study, the group treated with Ashwagandha 250mg/day showed a statistically significant reduction in stress levels, better sleep patterns, and lower serum cortisol. However, when these results were compared against the placebo-controlled group, the anxiety reduction was not significant. In addition, those subjects receiving 600mg/day of Ashwagandha had substantial improvements in stress, anxiety, and a statistically significant improvement in sleep quality.

Improving stress management and sleep quality are basic mechanisms to enhance our wellbeing. Indeed, applying alternative aid to downregulate the stress mechanism doesn’t only make us feel good. Still, in the long run, it lowers anxiety, depression, improves hormonal transport and sensitivity, which translates to better reproductive mechanisms. Consequently, keeping cortisol levels under control results in better metabolic health and increases bone density and muscle mass, which is also improved by a healthy sleep pattern. These simple improvements ensure a good quality of life, promote mobility, and potentially have beneficial effects on back pain. – Ana Paola Rodríguez Arciniega, MS

The Body's Proper Spinal Alignment Achieved Through Chiropractic Repair | Call: 915-850-0900 or 915-412-6677

The Body's Proper Spinal Alignment Achieved Through Chiropractic Repair | Call: 915-850-0900 or 915-412-6677 | Neuropathy "The Painful Enigma" | Scoop.it

When a machine isn't working correctly because the mechanism's parts have slipped, shifted, become loose, and are on the verge of breaking down, an expert/professional is called in to repair the damaged parts. The same can be said of the spine. From all the movement at home, work, shopping, activities the spine also compresses and falls out of place becoming misaligned. That's when individuals need to call a chiropractor to repair/realign the spine. The spine is an integral component of the body's functionality and health. This includes:

 

  • Structure
  • Support
  • Flexibility
  • Shock absorption
  • Protection of the neural tissues
 

Healthy Spinal Alignment

For the spine to operate at its best proper alignment is necessary. The spine is impacted by everyday activities that shift, jolt, bounce, and stress the spine. Exacerbating the regular wear and tear includes:

 

 

Spinal misalignment disrupts the essential functions that can lead to illness/disease. Some simple ways to assess individual spinal alignment.

 

  • The ears, shoulders, hips, and knees should be aligned with each other. From side to side when facing straight forward
  • Spinal rotation can be assessed by bending forward and touching the toes. Have a mirror or someone to look for a rib hump that is also used in scoliosis screening
  • The head, shoulders, and spinal curves align from the side in general creating an S shape

 

Every individual’s spine varies significantly. This is why a professional chiropractic examination, diagnosis, and customized treatment plan will maximize spinal alignment and overall health.

Chiropractors are the Expert Repair Specialists

Chiropractors are specially trained at spotting spinal misalignment/s and repair. This is done non-invasively through manual adjustments and mobilization techniques. When the spine is in optimal alignment it will prevent and activate the body's natural healing abilities. Once spinal alignment is achieved the chiropractor can help maintain proper alignment with exercise, health coaching, lifestyle adjustments, and nutrition to maximize individual health.

 

Body Composition

 

A partner, spouse, friend, co-worker, professional for maintaining health

Finding someone to share the highs and lows during an individual's health journey will significantly help relieve stress and continue to be motivated. It can be a spouse, best friend, coworker, or licensed professional. When an individual vocalizes their thoughts and feelings, they gain confidence in their ability to handle whatever comes their way. This is an individual that will help navigate the negative emotions by listening and providing advice and encouragement. Take some time every week to share successes, failures, goals, etc. Whatever comes to mind to just get it out there so it can be evaluated and broken down into manageable parts. The great thing about sharing is that it can inspire positive changes.

Fibromyalgia Could Cause Something More In The Body | Call: 915-850-0900 | Neuropathy "The Painful Enigma" | Scoop.it

Introduction

Everyone has dealt with acute or chronic pain at some point in their lives. The body’s response tells many of us where the pain is located and can leave the body sore as the immune system begins to heal the affected area. When disorders like autoimmune diseases start to attack the body for no reason, then that is when chronic issues and disorders begin to overlap in risk profiles on other various problems that affect both the muscles and organs. Autoimmune diseases like fibromyalgia can affect a person’s body; however, they could be associated with different issues affecting the body. Today’s article looks at fibromyalgia, how it affects the musculoskeletal system, and how chiropractic care helps manage fibromyalgia in the body. We refer patients to certified providers specializing in musculoskeletal treatments to help those with fibromyalgia. We also guide our patients by referring to our associated medical providers based on their examination when it’s appropriate. We find that education is the solution to asking our providers insightful questions. Dr. Alex Jimenez DC provides this information as an educational service only. Disclaimer

What Is Fibromyalgia?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Have you experienced excruciating pain that is spread all over your body? Do you have trouble sleeping and feel exhausted every day? Do you experience brain fog or other cognitive disturbances? Many of these issues are signs and conditions of fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is defined as a chronic condition that is characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain. Symptoms like fatigue, cognitive disturbances, and multiple somatic symptoms often overlap and accompany this disorder. Around two to eight percent of the world population suffers from fibromyalgia, and it affects women more than men. Sadly though, fibromyalgia is a challenge to diagnose, and the pain can last several months to years. Some of the main symptoms that fibromyalgia does to the body include:

  • Muscle and joint stiffness
  • General sensitivity
  • Insomnia
  • Cognitive dysfunction
  • Mood disorders

Fibromyalgia could also potentially be associated with specific diseases like diabetes, lupus, rheumatic diseases, and musculoskeletal disorders.

Neuropathy Summer Tips | Call: 915-850-0900 or 915-412-6677

Neuropathy Summer Tips | Call: 915-850-0900 or 915-412-6677 | Neuropathy "The Painful Enigma" | Scoop.it

Even though it is not officially summer, the heat says otherwise. Individuals with neuropathy can experience flare-ups when out in the heat for extended periods. Avoiding discomfort and having fun with family and friends can be stressful. This could be graduations, park festivals, family gatherings, weddings, etc. Here are some neuropathy summer tips/recommendations to maintain a healthy, fun, and pain-free season.​

Neuropathy

Neuropathy results from damaged or destroyed nerve cells and is often a side effect associated with diabetes, autoimmune diseases, infections, tumors, and/or hereditary conditions. Also known as peripheral neuropathy, symptoms range from tingling sensations, burning pain, muscle spasms, difficulty moving the arms or legs, feelings of light headiness, and sometimes atrophy. The symptoms depend on the damaged nerves, ranging from autonomicmotor, and sensory nerves. As neuropathy progresses, individuals may begin to feel a loss of balance.

Neuropathy Summer Tips

Research and Prepare

Preparation and planning are highly recommended to prevent a flare-up. For long outdoor ceremonies:

 

  • Wear sunscreen
  • Stay fully hydrated
  • Dress in cool clothes
  • Make sure footwear has proper arch/sole support and breathing room.
  • Wear a hat and sunglasses
  • Stand periodically to ensure proper circulation if sitting for a while.
  • Shift weight back and forth during the event to pump circulation throughout the body.
  • Bring snacks like fruits, veggies, or gluten-free bars.
  • Know where cool resting areas are located.

 

If cooling down accommodations are not available, get there early to find a place in the shade, or in the case of bleachers, bring a more comfortable chair, umbrella, and misting fan.

​Listen to the body

  • Listen to the body when engaged in activities, don’t try to push through where you don’t feel comfortable.
  • Take breaks
  • The goal is to ensure comfort during the activity, as being uncomfortable can exacerbate symptoms. ​

Self-care

The body needs thorough rest after a long day in the sun. It is recommended to ice any areas where pain presents to decrease inflammation and neuroplasticity and help with any symptoms of itching, pressure, numbness, or pins and needles.

 

  • Start with icing for three minutes, take the ice off and see how it feels.
  • If the area feels better, continue icing for a full ten minutes.
  • Remove the ice if irritation occurs or do not feel a difference.

Foods

Watching what you eat can be difficult at summer events. Specific foods like bread, gluten, and high-sugar products can cause symptoms.

 

  • If it causes an upset stomach or swelling, it is recommended to avoid it.
  • Go with fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables.
  • A little planning can ensure you eat the food that’s best for you.
  • Call ahead to let friends/family know of any food sensitivities.
  • Gluten apps allow the ability to scan an item to see if it contains gluten.
  • Consult a nutritionist to set up an enjoyable diet.

Chiropractic Care and Prevention

Spinal stress can affect nerve health. Neuropathy happens when disease or damage is sustained in the nerves that transmit messages from the brain through the spinal cord to the whole body. The source of the damage can be inside the spine, where a herniated disc could be squeezing the nerves, impeding or completely blocking blood circulation until deterioration begins to disease or damage nerve receptors. Removing the pressure from the spine and reversing the stress on the nerves can be done through manual or motorized spinal decompression.

Spinal Stress and the Nerves

The peripheral nervous system is comprised of three types of nerves that are directly influenced by the central nervous system, each with a distinct function which is why there is a wide range of symptoms associated with neuropathy. The types of nerves include:

 

  • Autonomic nerves regulate respiration, heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, bladder function, etc.
  • Motor nerves control muscle movement.
  • Sensory nerves receive sensations from the skin like heat, cold, pleasure, and pain.

 

Spinal nerves contain sensory and motor fibers giving them sensory and motor functions. The spinal nerves receive sensory messages from the skin, internal organs, and bones. Any disruption from a bent, crushed, or entangled nerve group will not allow proper blood circulation and message transmission, causing delayed responses, tingling, numbness, and pain. If left untreated, it could cause permanent damage that can lead to chronic pain. Decompression therapy accelerates healing as it floods the spine with blood, oxygen, and nutrients.

 

Peripheral nerves originate from the spinal cord and extend a network of lines throughout the body called dermatomes. Injury to one dermatome can radiate/spread out to other dermatomes and the peripheral areas like the hands and feet. Once communication with the brain is compromised, results can lead to sensations like numbness and severe pain. Several factors can result in peripheral neuropathy, including:

 

Nerve Root Pain Causes

Nerve root pain is usually caused by underlying conditions that have caused compression or damage to the nerve root; these include:

Introduction

In the body, there are trillions of nerves that inhabit the body and are connected to the central nervous system. The nervous system is split off into two parts which are the central nervous system which consists of the brain and spinal cord, and the peripheral nervous system which consists of the nerves that are branched out throughout the body from the spinal cord. The nervous system’s function to the body is to send out neuron signals all over the body to and from. When there are unwanted factors that start to affect the nerves in the body, it can disrupt the signals from transporting throughout the body and affect a person’s ability to function. In this 2 part series, we will be taking a look at understanding what is polyneuropathy and looking at the different types of polyneuropathies that can affect the body. In Part 2, we will look at what is neuropathy pain and its symptoms. By referring patients to qualified and skilled providers who specialized in neurological services. To that end, and when appropriate, we advise our patients to refer to our associated medical providers based on their examination. We find that education is the key to asking valuable questions to our providers. Dr. Alex Jimenez DC provides this information as an educational service only. Disclaimer

What Is Polyneuropathy?

Polyneuropathy or peripheral neuropathy is experienced by approximately 40 million people in the US, as research shows that it is a result of nerve damage that is located outside of the brain and the spinal cord. Many peripheral neuropathies are mixed neuropathies with both large fiber and small-fiber involvement and are increasingly recognized in the demonstration of specific involvement of small myelinated or unmyelinated fibers, e.g. small fiber neuropathies. This refers to a disorder of numerous peripheral nerves at a given time and is often characterized by a distal, symmetric sensory deficit (“glove and stocking” distribution). Since the peripheral nervous system sends out sensory information to and fro to the brain and spinal cord, polyneuropathy can occur through many factors like exposure to toxinsmetabolic problems, and traumatic injuries that can affect the body. Polyneuropathies can also be further subclassified as primarily axonal or demyelinating in nature.

Neuroregeneration could become an option for spinal cord injury treatments in the future. A spinal cord injury or SCI is when there is damage to the bundle of nerves and cells that send and receive signals from the brain and body. A spinal cord injury can be caused by direct trauma/injury to the cord or damage to the tissue and vertebrae. The damage can result in temporary or permanent changes in:

 

  • Sensation
  • Movement
  • Strength
  • Body function/s below the injury site.

 

There are incomplete and complete injuries. Injuries that cause limited or no cell death can achieve a full recovery. Injuries that are more serious and/or are higher on the spinal cord can cause permanent damage and/or paralysis. Automobile crashes, accidents, and serious falls are the most common causes of spinal cord injuries.

 

  • An incomplete injury means the cord can still transmit messages, but there is interference/disturbance.
  • complete injury means communication and motor function/voluntary body movement is not transmitting.

Symptoms

Symptoms of a spinal cord injury include:

 

  • Unnatural or awkward positioning of the spine or head.
  • Pain or pressure in the head, neck, or back.
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Loss of or changes in sensation in the hands and feet.
  • Problems with walking.
  • Weakness or inability to move parts of the body.
  • Loss of movement.
  • Paralysis can occur immediately or develop over time as swelling and bleeding affect the cord.
  • Loss of bladder and bowel control.
  • Changes in sexual function.
  • Difficulty breathing.

SCI Damage Control

A spinal cord injury affects the central nervous system, the body's central headquarters. Damage can cause complications through what's called the secondary injury cascade, which is a series of chemical reactions the body activates to help the situation. However, if the chemical response does not stop and stays active, it can worsen the injury. The body recognizes that an emergency has occurred and tries to go into a shut-down mode that kills off some of the cells in the central nervous system.

 

When a spinal injury happens, treatment focuses on stopping the damage as quickly as possible to stop the injury cascade and prevent as much cell death as possible. This act is called neuropreservation, meaning that the team is trying to preserve and save as many nerve cells as possible.

Injury Neuroregeneration Treatment Studies

While current treatment primarily focuses on stopping as much damage as possible then going through physical therapies to maintain spinal alignment and rehabilitate the body, the future of injury treatment is looking towards regrowing and repairing the damaged nerve cells through a process known as neuroregeneration. Repairing nerves that have been damaged could change life for many. Neuroregeneration Treatments being studied include:

Surgery

  • A study in The Lancet Neurology presents how getting surgery as soon as possible after an injury can provide significant benefits.
  • The findings could change all of the guidelines for spinal cord injury.

Medication

  • study on Riluzole, a medication that has shown promise to slow down nerve cell damage.
  • A team completed a randomized controlled trial for the medication; soon, the final results will be available.

Antibody treatment

Antibodies are being studied in two ways.

 

  • To stop nerve cells from being damaged.
  • To help damaged nerve cells regenerate.

Stem cells

  • Scientists are studying ways to grow new nerve cells from an individual's stem cells without the need for embryonic stem cells.
  • Specialized stem cells could also be used to help other nerve cells regenerate.

Electrical stimulation

  • Another approach is using electrical stimulation to restore function in the spinal cord.
  • Therapy that could help a paralyzed individual walk again.

The Future of Neuroregeneration

Aside from early surgery intervention, most neuroregenerative treatments are not ready or accessible yet. There's still much more research before it can become a mainstream treatment option. Treatment that involves regenerating nerve cells will take longer than a treatment designed to protect nerve cells. However, more clinical trials are expected to be done in the next few years, with stem cell therapies taking the longest. Some of these therapies could be ready to be used on actual patients in 5-10 years.

Body Composition

The Importance of Measuring Body Composition

Most diet and fitness programs focus on weight loss or gain. However, they tend to overlook that individuals have completely different body compositions. Body composition describes the amount of:

 

  • Fat
  • Bone
  • Water
  • Muscle
  • In the body.

 

Measuring body composition can tell a body's unique makeup and help identify areas to work on to improve overall health and wellness. Body composition analysis provides a snapshot of an individual's health/fitness levels to help achieve health goals from the inside out.

A nerve injury is often caused by a sudden traumatic event, like a slip and fall, personal or work injury, an automobile accident, or a sports injury. Overall stresses of the body from poor posture and being overweight can also lead to nerve pain over time, known as cumulative trauma. Where ligaments and bones are not aligned correctly, nerve pain and damage can occur. When nerve pain presents, there is pressure being placed on that nerve/s. Nerve pain symptoms include burning, tingling, or numbness-type sensations in the tissues controlled by that nerve. Orthopedic and neurologic testing will determine what specific nerve is affected. Chiropractic adjustments realign the spine and relieve the pressure on the nerve, thus eliminating the pain and correcting the problem.

Nerve Injury

Too much pressure from surrounding tissues compresses and irritates the nerve and interrupts its ability to function correctly. Pinched nerves are most vulnerable at points in the body where they pass through narrow spaces and have little to no soft tissue protection. Symptoms include:

 

  • Pins and Needles Sensation
  • Numbness
  • Pain
  • Weakness

 

A pinched nerve can decrease the range of motion and cause muscle spasms. If left untreated, a nerve injury can leave an individual with chronic pain and lead to permanent nerve damage.

Tingling and Numbness

Tingling and numbness are unusual or unpleasant physical sensations, most commonly experienced in the arms, hands, fingers, legs, feet, and toes. Tingling and numbness come in two forms:

Paresthesia

  • A feeling of pins and needles on the skin or the sensation of the hand or arm having fallen asleep.
  • Paresthesia can be a result of reduced blood flow to the region. This can be caused by external pressure that constricts the blood vessels.

Dysesthesia

  • This is a more persistent sensation resembling itching, burning, electric shock, or tightening pain.

 

Injuries to the nervous system can also produce numbness and tingling, even in areas nowhere near the actual injury. Examples include:

 

  • Neck pain from a neck injury can cause numbness or tingling in the hand or arm.
  • A low back injury can result in tingling in the back of the leg.

 

Other possible causes include:

 

  • Inflammation that puts pressure on nerves
  • Trigger points in the muscles
  • Enlarged blood vessels
  • Tumors
  • Myofascial adhesions
  • Scar tissue
  • Infection
  • Lesions on the spinal disc/s
  • Diabetes
  • Calcium deficiency
  • Vitamin B12 deficiency
  • Liver disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Alcoholism
  • Drug abuse

Chiropractic Treatment

To determine the appropriate course of treatment, a doctor of chiropractic must diagnose the cause of the nerve injury. Depending on the nature or severity of the sensation, the examination will include:

 

  • Muscle tests
  • Range-of-motion tests
  • Neurological tests
  • Orthopedic tests

 

The chiropractor will palpate the effective areas and order imaging tests like X-rays if necessary. If further testing is needed to diagnose the source of the nerve injury, the doctor may order an MRI or CT scan. Once the underlying condition is diagnosed, a chiropractor will develop a treatment plan to eliminate irritation, correct misalignments causing pressure, and restore proper nerve function. Treatment plans vary from case to case but can include:

 

  • Therapeutic Massage
  • Body adjustments
  • Spinal manipulation
  • Heat and Ice

 

The objective is to relieve/release the pressure on the nerves. Chiropractic adjustments help reposition the muscles and nerves. Deep-tissue massage helps to release tension and eliminate toxins that worsen the sensations. Treatment improves circulation and relieves pressure on the neural pathways necessary to restore normal neural signaling between the body and the brain.

Body Composition

Why The Brain Needs Sugar

The brain needs half of all the body's energy supply because of its complex nerve cell system. The brain requires glucose for brain cell energy. Because neurons can't store energy, they need a continuous fuel supply to function correctly from the bloodstream. The ability to think, learn and recall information is closely associated with glucose levels. When blood glucose levels are low, the ability to think is inhibited as the production of chemical messengers/neurotransmitters, are reduced, disrupting communication between the neurons. Natural sugar can boost brain health because it requires glucose for functioning. Sugar is released slowly into the bloodstream when taken naturally from sources like apples and bananas, keeping the energy levels steady, without craving more sugar.

Neuropathy is a painful condition that causes tingling, numbness, burning sensations in the hands and feet, and other symptoms throughout the body. Neuropathy can make life difficult. There is no cure for neuropathy, but symptoms can be managed with medications, antidepressants, anticonvulsants, and pain relievers. Another treatment option to help relieve neuropathy symptoms is chiropractic.

Symptoms

Symptoms vary from individual to individual depending on their health condition and how the nerves have been impacted. Common symptoms include:

 

  • Pain
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Pins-and-needles feeling when touching something hot or cold.
  • Some individuals lose the sense of feeling like clothing on their body, even though it's rubbing against the skin but feel as if it is not there.
  • Other changes can be familiar objects looking different than usual.
  • Lessened or heightened sense of smell.
  • Negative impact on mood.

Protective Sheathing Of The Nerves

Neuropathic pain is caused by damage and degeneration to the nerves or the protective covering/sheathing of the nerves. Various causes include:

 

  • Diabetes.
  • Injury.
  • Infections.
  • Medication side effects.
  • Exposure to toxins.

Stages

The symptoms of neuropathy depend on the location and severity of the nerve damage. The stages include:

Numbness and Pain

  • Stage one consists of numbness and pain.
  • Some individuals describe a tingling or numbing sensation.
  • What feels like pinpricks in the hands and/or feet.
  • This stage can last for months, but most individuals recover within a year.

Constant Pain

  • Stage two is characterized by continuous pain.
  • Some individuals may experience shooting pains that come and go.
  • Intense burning sensations around the waistline.
  • Numbness on one side of the body with stabbing pain.
  • This stage can last for a year or more and worsen until the individual is incapacitated.

Nerve Degeneration

  • Stage three is when nerve degeneration sets in.
  • Loss of feeling on both sides of the body.
  • Loss of motor skills like walking and falling over.
  • Doctors treat the symptoms so they don't get worse.

Loss Of Sensation

  • The final stage is the loss of sensation.
  • This occurs when the nerve endings are destroyed and can no longer send messages to the brain.

Treatments To Help Relieve Symptoms

Treatments usually involve:

 

  • Antidepressants.
  • Pain medications.
  • Anti-seizure medications.
  • Pain-relieving creams.
  • All can help manage pain and inflammation.

Chiropractic Can Also Help Relieve Symptoms

Chiropractors use hands-on methods to adjust and realign joints, muscles, spinal discs, and ligaments to function more efficiently and bring relief from pressure on the nerves. Neuropathies are often caused by nerve compression in body areas that have been altered by injury or disease that affects ligaments, discs, spinal muscles, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, hip adhesions, leg length discrepancies, etc. These can contribute to pain and numbness in the peripheral nerves that supply the legs, feet, arms, hands, and neck. While a chiropractor cannot cure neuropathy, they can help relieve symptoms, make it much more manageable, and improve quality of life.

Body Composition

Common Cold

The common cold, also known as upper respiratory tract inflammation, is the most common infectious respiratory disease because of its effect on the nose and throat. The average adult will catch 2–3 colds a year, according to the CDC. A virus that causes a cold can enter the respiratory tract directly when inhaling droplets expelled from an infected person or by direct skin contact, like touching the face with a hand that came in contact with the virus. Cold symptoms vary but usually include:

 

  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Sneezing
  • Coughing
  • Headaches
  • Body aches

 

The duration of a cold differs; however, most individuals with a healthy immune system recover in 7–10 days. However, individuals with a compromised immune system, asthma, or COPD have an increased risk of developing more serious illnesses like bronchitis or pneumonia. Hundreds of viruses can cause colds. Human Rhinoviruses are common culprits and are constantly mutating, which is why there is no cure. Several medications or natural treatments help alleviate cold symptoms; it is recommended to combat the illness effectively through a healthy immune system response. Doctors recommend proper rest, eating a nutrient-rich diet, and maintaining proper H2O hydration to boost the immune system.

The Efficacy of Low Laser Therapy | El Paso, TX | Call: 915-850-0900 or 915-412-6677 | Neuropathy "The Painful Enigma" | Scoop.it

Around the world, pain, especially chronic pain, is widespread to an individual. When the body goes through a tremendous amount of activity, the muscle tissues will rip and tear to strengthen the body for the next activity it overcomes. But when the muscle tissues tear and cause pain to the body, it can take a week or even months for the tissue to recover. Many recovery treatments can help alleviate the pain that a person is in, and one of the recovery treatments that most physicians use is low laser therapy.

Low Laser Therapy & Musculoskeletal Pain

Doctors have used low laser therapy to help patients alleviate pain and repair muscle tissue in the affected area of the body. Studies have found that the effects of low laser therapy had a positive impact on the treated area. The study showed that the low laser treatment has helped with relieving pain and has promoted tissue repair. The effects of the low laser wavelength have enhanced the healing process by promoting cell proliferation, causing pain relief. One of the efficient ways that low laser therapy is beneficial to the body is to alleviate musculoskeletal pain. 

 

Musculoskeletal pain is a variety of issues in the body. From muscle pain to fibromyalgia, it can render a person miss out on everyday activities, causing them to miss work or school. Studies have shown that when a patient is going in for low laser therapy, the effects from the laser wavelength can reduce inflammation and edema in the affected area. The studies even show that the laser light effects are photochemical and not thermal. The laser light will trigger a biochemical change in the body, causing the photons from the affected area to be absorbed, thus triggering a chemical change in the area.

Efficient Uses of Low Laser Therapy

Other studies even show that the low laser wavelength triggers chemical alterations and potential biochemical benefits to the human body. This means that if a person is suffering from chronic pain when going for low laser treatment, the laser can relieve chronic pain symptoms and even osteoarthritic conditions. Another efficient use of low laser therapy is that it can suppress the MMP or mitochondrial membrane potential in the DRG neutron while reducing adenosine triphosphate or ATP production in the body. In other words, the effects of low laser therapy can suppress and reduce inflammation receptors in the body, thus causing long-term results that last for years, improving tissue healing.

 

Another efficient way low laser therapy is beneficial is that it can be combined with light exercises as a staple of rehabilitation. Studies have found that the combination of low laser therapy and exercise has merit. When an individual combines stretches and low laser therapy as part of their rehabilitation, the data shows a reduction in pain symptoms and fatigue in the body.

Conclusion

All in all, the efficient effects of low laser therapy are beneficial by reducing inflammation and damping the pain receptors in the body. Since chronic pain is worldwide and can cause harmful effects to the body, using low laser therapy can dampen the pain receptors. Having low laser therapy treatments as part of their daily regime and light exercises for anyone with chronic pain can get their body moving pain-free. Since the body goes through so much, having low laser therapy is one of the many recovery treatments that can provide long-lasting results and promote overall wellness.

Fibromyalgia Altered Pain Perception Processing | Call: 915-850-0900 or 915-412-6677 | Neuropathy "The Painful Enigma" | Scoop.it

Fibromyalgia is a condition that causes pain throughout the whole body. It causes sleep problems, fatigue, and mental/emotional distress. It affects around four million adults in the United States. Individuals with Fibromyalgia tend to be more sensitive to pain. This is referred to as abnormal/altered pain perception processing. Research currently leans towards a hyperactive nervous system as one of the most plausible causes.

Symptoms and Related Conditions

Individuals with fibromyalgia/fibromyalgia syndrome/FMS may have:

  • Fatigue
  • Sleep issues
  • Headaches
  • Concentration, Memory issues, or Fibro Fog
  • Stiffness
  • Tender points
  • Pain
  • Numbness and tingling in hands, arms, legs, and feet
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Urinating issues
  • Abnormal menstrual cramps

Altered Central Pain Processing

Central sensitization means that the central nervous system, made up of the brain and spinal cord, processes pain differently and more sensitively. For example, individuals with Fibromyalgia could interpret physiological stimuli, like heat, coldness, pressure, as pain sensations. Mechanisms that cause altered pain processing include:

 

  • Pain signal dysfunction
  • Modified opioid receptors
  • Substance P increase
  • Increased activity in the brain where pain signals are interpreted.

Pain Signal Dysfunction

When a painful stimulus is felt, the brain signals the release of endorphins, the body's natural painkillers that block the transmission of pain signals. Individuals with Fibromyalgia could have a pain-blocking system that is altered and/or not functioning correctly. There is also the inability to block repetitive stimuli. This means that the individual keeps feeling and experiencing the stimuli even as they try to block them out, suggesting a failure in the brain to filter out irrelevant sensory information.

Modified Opioid Receptors

Research has found that individuals with fibromyalgia have a reduced number of opioid receptors in the brain. Opioid receptors are where endorphins bind so the body can use them when necessary. With fewer available receptors, the brain is less sensitive to endorphins, as well as opioid pain medication like:

 

  • Hydrocodone
  • Acetaminophen
  • Oxycodone
  • Acetaminophen

Substance P Increase

Individuals with fibromyalgia have been found to have elevated levels of substance P in their cerebrospinal fluid. This chemical is released when a painful stimulus is detected by the nerve cells. Substance P is involved with the body's pain threshold, or the point when a sensation turns into pain. High levels of substance P could explain why the pain threshold is low in individuals with fibromyalgia.

Increased Activity in the Brain

Brain imaging tests, like magnetic resonance imaging or MRI, have shown that fibromyalgia is associated with greater than regular activity in areas of the brain that interpret pain signals. This can suggest that pain signals are overwhelming those areas or that the pain signals are being processed dysfunctionally.

Triggers

Certain factors can trigger a flare-up. These include:

 

  • Diet
  • Hormones
  • Physical stress
  • Too much exercise
  • Not enough exercise
  • Psychological stress
  • Stressful events
  • Sleep Patterns changed
  • Treatment changes
  • Temperature changes
  • Weather changes
  • Surgery

Chiropractic

Chiropractic focuses on whole-body wellness. 90% of the central nervous system goes through the spinal cord. A misaligned vertebral bone can create interference and irritation on the nerves. Fibromyalgia is a condition related to the hyperactivity of the nerves; therefore, any vertebral subluxations will complicate and aggravate fibromyalgia symptoms. By realigning the misaligned vertebrae releases the stress off of the spinal cord and spinal nerve root. That is why individuals with fibromyalgia are recommended to add a chiropractor to their healthcare team.

According to chiropractic physiological concepts, the body is in a state of relaxation when the body’s natural intelligence can properly function. With regular movement, work, school, chores, tasks, the body takes a beating getting pushed, pulled, and twisted. This results in loss of function, disharmony, chronic conditions, and disease. Chiropractic assistance restores the communication flow with various types of adjustments.

 

Like a vehicle that has something loose or is out of place, but can still move, so do individuals continue to work despite their body telling them that something is wrong or out of place. As they continue the body can start to break down. Even with a minor vertebral subluxation. A subluxation is when a vertebra/spine's bones interfere with the transmission of information along the spine and throughout the central nervous system. The messages/transmissions to and from the brain disrupt the body’s ability to function properly resulting in health issues. A chiropractor adjusts the body to correct the subluxation. This facilitates the body’s natural ability to:

 

  • Adapt
  • Regulate
  • Heal itself through its own natural intelligence.

 

Chiropractic is based on principles of physiology. These principles have a significant impact on individuals:

 

  • Overall health
  • Vitality
  • Well-being

Self-healing and Regulating

When individuals cut themselves, or when a bone gets broken, the body will heal itself. No thought or practice is needed. The body breathes, digests food, the heart continues to beat and the kidneys filter out waste products.

Brain, Nervous System, and Body Health

The brain and nervous system are what controls and coordinate the body's ability to heal and self-regulate. The brain sends out information through the nervous system to the organs of the body. The information tells the organs what to do and when to do it. The organs reply to the brain through the nervous system letting the brain know everything is operating correctly. To function properly and maintain optimal function, the body depends on the proper circulation of nerve transmissions/information traveling through the nervous system.

Spinal State

The condition or state of the spine if out of place even just a little could interfere with the transmission of information via the nerve pathways. Misalignments and subluxations don’t always hurt so individuals don't know this is happening. The nervous system is protected by the skull and spinal bones, known as the vertebrae. The spinal bones allow for free movement. Subluxations and misalignments:

 

  • Stretch
  • Pinch
  • Irritate
  • Choke
  • Rub the nerve fibers.

 

This alters the information/messages traveling and interferes with the body’s ability to function as it should.

Chiropractic Assistance

Chiropractic assistance will diagnose and correct misalignments and subluxations, restoring proper nerve circulation. These spinal adjustments unlock and realign the bones allowing for optimal movement and the communication pathways are fixed. A healthy spine and nervous system are vital to healthy body function. This is the body's natural state. How to know if you have a subluxation, have your spine checked by a chiropractor.

Body Health Assistance

 

Body Composition Goals

For individuals that fall within the extremely overweight and obese body fat percentage category, an effective strategy is to lose fat while preserving the existing Lean Body Mass. Individuals with high body fat percentages often have existing muscle developed from carrying the added weight when moving. Preserving this muscle is important. Having more muscle means increased metabolism and more strength.

 

  • To start losing body fat it is recommended to cut down/cut out processed foods and reduce caloric intake.
  • Consult with a health coach and nutritionist to find out about different types of diets and types of physical activity.

 

One study showed that obese individuals could quickly improve body composition by:

More individuals are reporting extreme levels of stress. Studies indicate that an increasing number of individuals are feeling worried, anxious, or depressed regularly from various stressors. Maintaining the body's health includes:

 

  • Following a balanced diet
  • Getting enough exercise
  • Taking vitamins or supplements to ensure the body gets what it needs for optimal function.

 

However, research has found that a sudden increase in stress, specifically stress associated with anger, can trigger:

 

 

This type of stress can affect individuals that did not know they had heart disease. Intense short-term stress can have dangerous effects on the body's health, leading to chronic stress. Chronic stress continues at a low level for weeks, months, or years. It can significantly change the way the body functions. Stress management is crucial for overall well-being. Learning how to handle stress properly is the goal.

Poor Stress Management

When stress hits, it triggers the brain to release various hormones. These hormones increase heart rate and raise blood pressure. This comes from evolution that helped early humans escape from predators and stay safe from different types of physical danger. This same stress reaction is what we go through; however, it is not to escape danger but to deal with work, family, school, commuting, social issues, etc. And when the stress response happens regularly, it can have serious and long-term effects on the body's ability to function properly. Stress includes mental, behavioral, and physical symptoms. The most familiar effects of stress are related to mood. Mood changes that can result from chronic low-level stress include:

 

  • Feelings overwhelmed
  • Increased anxiety
  • Generalized anxiety that is not connected with anything specific
  • Unmotivated or unfocused
  • Sadness
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Impatience
  • Unusually quick to anger
  • Restlessness

These mood changes can be tied to changes in behavior. The following behaviors are associated with increased stress levels:

  • Alcohol and/or drug abuse
  • Starting or increasing tobacco use
  • Eating changes - undereating or overeating
  • Withdrawing from friends and family
  • Avoiding social interaction
  • Little to no physical activity

Physical effects that are associated with long-term stress.

Chronic stress that lasts for a long period can affect the whole body. The immune system, digestive system, sleep cycles, etc. Physical symptoms include:

 

  • Tension in the neck and back
  • Persistent headaches
  • Stomach aches
  • Constant fatigue, even after waking up
  • Sleeping pattern changes
  • Insomnia
  • Muscle pain
  • Changes in libido
  • Being more prone to infections because of a weakened immune system
  • Chest pain

Learning Healthy Stress Management

Mental health is now an important part of living a healthy life. Stress comes from all kinds of different places. We can’t always change these moments, but we can change our reactions to reduce the negative effects and results. To manage stress, it is important to know what is causing it.

 

  • It could be an argument with a boss, co-worker, family member, or significant other.
  • Work deadlines
  • School grades, teachers, kids, etc
  • Bills
  • Repairs

 

Clearly identifying the main stressors will help individuals anticipate them and form a plan. There are different ways of dealing with it. The different strategies need to be researched and tried by individuals to see what works for them. Think about what helps the mind and body relax and unwind. A few recommended ways include:

 

  • Watching favorite shows or movies
  • Listening to music
  • Breathing techniques
  • Spend time with friends or family
  • Make time for yourself to do something you love - alone time
  • Unplug from devices like phones, tablets, or computer
  • Play a sport
  • Practice yoga
  • Physical activity
  • Take a nature hike
  • Write, paint, sculpt, knit, sew, crafts, make music, play instrument/s - real media, or digital.
  • Meditate and practice mindfulness techniques

 

These are strategies that can be incorporated into regular daily life. Be sure to set time aside to focus on mental wellbeing. Learn to recognize the signs when getting overwhelmed. Don’t hesitate to ask for help when needed. This can be a support system or mental health professional. This is to empower individuals to take better care of themselves in both body and mind.

Body Composition

 

Setting Attainable Goals

Individuals that have trouble achieving health goals might want to look at the goals themselves. Individuals typically have a general idea of their fitness journey. However, it is hard to reach those goals without a map. Losing weight or getting healthy is the goal, but these goals are not measurable. This is too broad that can be different things to different people. Trying to accomplish a vague goal makes it hard to plan, making it happen, or seeing progress. A recommended strategy for goal setting is to use the SMART system. The acronym stands for:

 

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Attainable
  • Realistic
  • Timed

 

When goals fall into these parameters, it provides a clear picture of what is trying to get accomplished and plan accordingly. An example could be: An individual will work out at home or the gym for one hour, five days a week for one month. This is a specific and measurable goal when compared to I’m going to work out more. This provides clear guidelines of what needs to happen to achieve success.

Summer Heat Can Affect Joints and Movement • Chiropractic Scientist | Call: 915-850-0900 or 915-412-6677 | Neuropathy "The Painful Enigma" | Scoop.it

Although it is not officially summer, the past few weeks sure feels like it. Especially for those with joint discomfort and pain. As the body ages, individuals may notice their joints have some mobility/flexibility issues in the summer heat. Again, the heat and humidity are the culprits. The hotter it is, the more the body is susceptible to inflammation and swelling. 

 

The more prone an individual's body is to swelling, the more pain can present. Barometric pressure can also have some form of impact on joint health. The pressure changes can cause the joints to become more sensitive. When the pressure changes, individuals often speak of their joints feeling tighter combined with stiffness, leading to a cycle of swelling and pain.

Joint Anatomy

Whether it’s the hip, knee, elbow, or hand, all of the body's joints have fluid in them. It is a gel-like substance known as synovial fluid. This is what lubricates the joints and keeps them functioning smoothly. However, the temperature and humidity levels can change the thickness of the fluid in the joints. This means that the synovial fluid can become inflamed with the weather changes. This is a symptom when the joints begin to feel like they cannot move and/or are becoming stiff. Joint inflammation can become more common and chronic as the body gets older.

Weather and the joints

The summer heat and humidity can affect the joint because:

 

  • The tendons, ligaments, and muscles expand in this type of weather
  • The heat can restrict individuals from moving around. Non-use stiffens the joints
  • Joints that have worn down cartilage could have exposed nerves that are reacting to the temperature changes
  • Humidity causes the body to lose water by sweating. This can reduce the fluid around the joints leading to stiffness, immobility, and pain.

 

However, not everyone has joint problems in the summer heat. Many have joint issues when it's cold, damp, or raining. Other's are at their best in cool, dry weather. It depends on an individual's body and how their joints react when the temperature changes.

Maintaining joint health for the summer heat

When joint discomfort or pain presents in the summer, there are a few easy ways to gain relief.

Properly Hydrate the Body

Water and sports drinks maintain the fluid levels in the body, specifically, it keeps the joints moving. One way to hydrate the body can be achieved by eating healthy fruits and vegetables. Water-rich fruits and vegetables include:

 

  • Watermelon
  • Oranges
  • Strawberries
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumbers
  • Spinach
  • Celery

Over-The-Counter pain ointments and creams

Arthritis and anti-inflammatory creams/ointments can ease joint pain by allowing more blood circulation in the affected areas.

Dressing for the heat

Wear loose, natural fiber, breathable clothing that allows the body to move freely while maintaining a cool temperature.

Relax in the air conditioning

Get into the air conditioning. The cool air can help reduce joint inflammation.

Get in the Water

Swimming or just wading through doing some light exercise in the water cools the body’s core. In addition, the buoyancy of the water relieves pressure on the joints.

Body Composition Testing

 

Body Water

The body is made up of as much as 2/3's water. Even though much of the body is made up of water, body composition changes based on functional needs. Essential functions of water include:

 

  • Water is the building block to almost every cell in the body
  • It regulates the body's temperature through sweating and respiration
  • Carbohydrates and proteins for energy are transported via the water in the blood
  • Water assists in the removal of metabolic waste through urination
  • It is part of the shock-absorbing system that protects the brain and spinal cord
  • Water is part of the saliva and fluid that lubricates the joints

 

The amount of water in the body depends on various factors. This includes:

 

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Physical activity
  • It is referred to as Total Body Water or TBW.

 

TBW is constantly changing with gains and losses of fluid in healthy adults. The body can detect irregularities and compensate for losses and/or gains to ensure that the systems are balanced.
