Botox Injections for Neck Pain...



Many who read this won't take any medication for their pain. However sometimes somebody may try something to get over that proverbial 'hump'. I myself like to do as much natural as i can but if that doesn't work - try the meds. That does depend a bit on the side effects. For example someone may get good results taking the Botox for Migraine headaches, but if it's causing severe neck pain?...

Most issues can be solved by correcting your spine and way of life. Typically, what I mean by way of life is diet. what you are doing every day and what you eat on a regular basis can make a huge difference...

Why Cracking The Neck Can Be Dangerous!



So what is "cracking the neck"? It's typically moving the neck around until you get a release or "pop"; this is just a gas release in the joint.

That release does feel good; you get that immediate release, the problem is that the relief doesn't last. The reason is because you are just moving things around but not always getting it back in place. Getting spinal bones in proper alignment takes pressure off of nerves and keeps pain away.

So if you self adjust you run the risk of putting something out of alignment. And if it stays that way you can be in real trouble...

How Does The Neck Effect The Back?

First, the whole spine is connected. 24 spinal vertebrae with a disc between them. The last bone is called the sacrum. If your spine is out of alignment, then your posture will be too. Let's say you have forward head, your back then extends to bring the head up.

So from that example you can see how bad posture of the neck can create bad posture in the low back. This means nerve pressure and that means pain...

Also, your brain is the main control center. Messages come from there and have to go though the neck before they get to the lower back...

Correct Your Neck!



You need to correct that neck curve... What is the fastest way to do that? Use true neck traction, use a neck pillow, and do neck exercises. If you have a Chiropractor adjusting you too, even better. That is why I like this video; there's even before and after pictures. I like how he even uses a wall for resistance. You can use your hand or even a towel too... Here is where you can find the "true neck traction" with the posture pump... And, of course, my favorite pillow...

Miracles of the Chiropractic Adjustment...

As a Doctor of Chiropractic, I've seen a few different conditions. Even though my main focus was neck and back pain, the patient's would often mention other problems that seemed to resolve since undergoing treatment. A couple examples are: a patient being seen for upper and mid-back pain saw their heartburn resolve. Someone with lower back pain saw his foot issue resolve. There have been numerous cases like this... You know what - that individual didn't care how it happened really, just that it was gone!

Yet Another Fake Sugar...

Okay, here's the bottom line - if you want something sweat, use real sugar, don't use aspartame, something else fake, even stevia (primarily in tampered with looks pretty natural and comes from a plant, but who knows what they do to it?). Natural cane sugar is your best option.

They are finally acknowledging that aspartame is absolutely toxic (you know the fake sweetener in many things - all diet sodas for example). Anyway, my point is, they've got a newer sweetener - except it's made from chlorine - this may be even worse??? Are we going from bad to worse? - you be the judge... Watch out for it; don't eat it!

Am I Getting Enough Vitamin D?

When doing the basic blood test, anything less than 30ng/ml is considered low. According to the CDC(Centers for Disease Control) a significant number of males come up short of this number. Most areas it's very difficult to get enough sun because the angle to the earth is such that for most of the year you won't get the Vitamin D.

Here's what to do: You can always move to central Florida or further south where you are at a latitude where you get Vit D all year. That can a bit difficult though so I recommend taking a supplement. Also, keep in mind that animals store this vitamin in their fat. Therefore don't be afraid to eat meat with so fat. Lastly, don't drown yourself in sunscreen when you do go out. If you know you may get burnt - cover up.
