Chiropractic in the NFL


Thomas Jones and Dr. Richard Shaker, Chiropractic PhysicianFor four seasons in the NFL, after having suffered a chest injury while playing my rookie year, I had not been able to breathe properly. I also had severe pain in my chest and rib cage. Previous to Dr. Shaker, I had seen every medical specialist, including other chiropractors—no one could help me. I was struggling to survive in the NFL. After two weeks of Dr Shaker’s treatments, I felt better than I had since the initial injury. I started playing like my old self and was able to split time with starting running back Michael Pittman. I am currently the starting running back for the Chicago Bears. Since then, I have flown Dr. Shaker to Chicago to treat me personally during the season.

Spinal Manipulative Therapy - A Winner For Defeating Neck Pain!

A new study funded by the US Department of Health and Human Services has shown spinal manipulative therapy (SMT), the primary therapy administered by doctors of chiropractic, to be superior in the treatment of neck pain in the elderly population. A total of 241 individuals aged 65 years and older with a primary complaint of mechanical neck pain present for 12 weeks or longer participated in the study. Participants receiving 12 weeks of SMT coupled with home exercises (HE) experienced statistically better pain relief than those participants who utilized HE alone. If you’re suffering from neck pain or any spinal pain, even if you’re over the age of 65, call your local chiropractor today for a no obligation consultation to see what chiropractic care might be able to offer you!

Chiropractic Adjustments And Your Safety


Chiropractic adjustments, also known as spinal manipulative therapy or spinal manipulation, are a natural, non-invasive and extremely safe form of therapy provided by licensed doctors of chiropractic. Each doctor of chiropractic goes through rigorous and extensive hands on training including the passing of national and state board examinations to ensure their expertise and competency in evaluating, diagnosing and treating spinal ailments and other health related conditions is at a high level. From time to time, stories in the media attempt to circumvent truth and what research has shown by suggesting that chiropractic adjustments may not be completely safe. We find claims challenging chiropractic’s safety record unprofessional and unfounded based on what medical research has already proven. For example, one of the largest and most credible studies related to chiropractic safety and related neck injuries, Cassidy et al., found that a patient is as likely to have seen a primary care medical doctor as a doctor of chiropractic prior to experiencing a cervical arterial injury. The truth is chiropractic care is extremely safe and medical research backs this. If you or someone you know is in need of chiropractic services, rest assured in knowing chiropractic care and chiropractic adjustments are not only effective, they’re one of the safest health-related procedures offered by any healthcare discipline.

Neck Pain In The Office


Results from a newly published study indicate neck pain and disability in the workplace has an exceedingly high occurrence rate. In this year long study consisting of over 500 healthy office workers, 23 percent reported neck pain with disability. Factors that increased the likelihood of experiencing neck pain and disability included a previous history of neck pain, chair adjustability and perceived muscular tension. While it’s obviously impossible to eliminate a past history of neck problems, ensuring that you receive the proper care for new neck problems and ensuring you have a high quality work chair with appropriate adjustments for proper posture and comfort are important. Chiropractors are experts highly skilled and trained in proper function and conditioning of the spine and it’s components - this includes the neck, back and lower back. If you’re having issues with your neck or back, or just wish to have a spinal check-up, call your local doctor of chiropractic today!
