Why You Should Visit A Chiropractor This New Year

Woman Receiving Chiropractic Care

Happy New Year! 2021 is finally here! This is the time of year where people begin to return their focus to themselves; it brings a fresh start. Making a fresh start by making changes to prioritize your health is important. This new year, your health is dependent on you – if you are looking to regain control of your health, here are some reasons visiting a chiropractor may be the best option for you!

Why Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care supports the entire body. Chiropractors have the ability to help you achieve overall health and wellness. From pain to your immune system, chiropractic care can be helpful to you in many different ways!

Eliminating Pain

Chiropractors are well known for their ability to reduce pain throughout your body. They work on focusing on your spine’s health because when your spine is misaligned, it can cause you a large amount of pain due to pinched nerves and pressure points all over your body. One of the goals of chiropractic care is to help the nervous system communicate better with the entire body. As you enter the new year, chiropractic care can help you begin this new year in less pain.

Focus

Do you struggle to focus on the task at hand? Chiropractic care can help with this as it could be a result of spinal misalignment. When your nervous system isn’t functioning as it should, it can affect your ability to focus. Chiropractic care can help with this by improving your spinal health.

Energy

When your spine isn’t aligned, one of the symptoms is having a lower amount of energy. If there is a lack of efficient communication of your nervous system to the rest of your body, it can lead to the demise of your health. As a chiropractor works on adjusting the spine and improving the health of the spine, you may find you have more energy, which is a great way to start out a new year!

Holiday Tips for this Christmas Season

With the holiday season just around the corner, it is important to make sure that the holidays are a stress free, and organized experience through all the Christmas cooking, gift shopping and wrapping. A stress-free holiday vacation is a healthy holiday vacation. Christmas is a time to indulge, but this is not a good reason to overindulge.

 These are some of the tips to help you and your family have a healthier Christmas vacation.

  • Try not to sit around all day. Getting up and moving around, especially after a Christmas meal, can help your body digest the food. The activities that can be done are endless whether it is movement from a casual walk around the block or a friendly game of football or soccer. You can even go fishing or hunting in this wonderful weather.  The possibilities are anything to get you and your family up and moving.
  • Take it easy on the alcohol. It is okay to have some alcohol over this holiday season, but it is also important to get the proper hydration and not overdo it.  Dr. Curtis’s favorite is a hot apple cider with crown apple, fireball, and cinnamon stick. Remember that it is all in moderation.
  • Make sure you are also not giving yourself a Christmas stuffing or entering a food coma. The average number of calories a day is around 1,500 to 2,400 calories a day depending on the person.  During one meal, we can get the more than the recommended calorie intake for a whole day in one meal.
  • Make sure you eat plenty of vegetables and about half the amount in fruit. It is important to make sure you are still consuming the recommended daily value of fruit and as well as your vegetables. The recommended value for vegetables is about 5-7 servings with fruit being 2-3 serving a day.   We usually do not get enough fruits and vegetables. 
  • Keep your mind active rather than shutting down and watching the television all day. This can be done alone or even as a whole family. Playing a phone game or a game on a tablet that causes your brain to think can help keep your mind active. Even a game that gets the whole family together such as Apples to Apples or Trivial Pursuit can help keep your mind active as well as create a good time for the family to be together.   I would recommend sitting down at the kitchen table and playing a game. Posture is likely better when not on your phone. We like the Relative Insanity game.
  • Last but not least tip. Think before you eat. Christmas is a time where baked goods are consumed at a high rate. Try to enjoy activities like playing games, exchanging presents to fill your day. Most of all, make sure to spend a brief moment to live in the moment of being with family and friends.  Enjoy the time together.

Happy Holidays from Fletcher Chiropractic. Let us all have a better year next year and kiss 2020 GOODBYE!

Why You Should See a Chiropractor This Holiday Season

‘Tis the season for holiday cheer! For fun family gatherings, presents under the tree, for stress and weight gain. For many, the holiday season is the most overwhelming time of the year. Visiting Fletcher Chiropractic this holiday season has many benefits for your health during this time of year. Here are six reasons you should consider visiting a chiropractor this holiday season.

1. Reduces Stress

The holiday season can bring out a lot of stress. You have constant commitments and responsibilities, but it is important to remember to take care of yourself. Holiday stress might come in a package that includes the neck, back, and jaw pain and shoulder tension. Our bodies tense up when we are under a lot of stress, leaving us vulnerable to other forms of injuries.  Chiropractic care is a great way to help reduce the physical effects of stress on your body. 

2. Staying Healthy

November and December are the beginning of cold and flu season. Having regular chiropractic adjustments can help balance the nervous system and strengthen our immune system. This may help you be able to fight off illnesses that are common during the winter months. 

3. Travel

The holiday season is the busiest time of year for traveling. Being confined in a car or plane for long periods of time can take a toll on your body. With the reduced movement and uncomfortable spaces, multiple injuries can occur, including misalignments in the back and neck and pinched nerves. A chiropractic adjustment can be beneficial after travel!

4. Digestion Aid

Our eating habits often change during the holiday season. We tend to eat more food and heavier food. Our digestive system is often weighted down after all those Christmas cookies and fun New Years parties. Chiropractic adjustments can help by promoting good digestive flow during the holiday season!

5. Pain Relief

Nebraska winters can be brutal. From shoveling snow off the driveway to heavy lifting, winter can take a toll on your body. Carrying all the extra heavy bags, loading boxes into cars, and cutting down that Christmas tree could cause an unknowing injury. If you are experiencing pain from these types of seasonal labor, it can be beneficial to see a chiropractor. 

6. Seasonal Depression

Due to having less sunlight during the winter, our Vitamin D levels reach a low during the holiday season. This, paired with holiday stress, creates a recipe for depression during the winter. Chiropractic care is an excellent approach to managing the effects of seasonal depression by having a positive impact on the body’s immune system.

As 2020 is coming to an end, we hope you consider giving yourself the gift of chiropractic care at Fletcher Chiropractic. Give us a call at 402-261-5766 or schedule an appointment online today!

What is Hyperextension, and how can Chiropractic Care Help?

Most of us have heard of hyperextension but do we really know what this injury is? Each of our joints has a set range of motion, which allows them to operate and function properly. There are some activities that, when we participate in them, cause the joint to overextend and which means a hyperextension injury is often the result. 

What is Hyperextension?

The joints in your body tend to have a set range of motion, such as folding your arm to your shoulder or extending it outwards. This range of motion also exists within your knees, hips, and shoulders. 

Hyperextension can occur in any joint, although it is most common in the knee, elbow, finger, neck, shoulder, and ankle. Hyperextension can range from mild to severe. Mild injuries heal quickly but still need care, while the more severe injuries often need treatment from a physician.

Hyperextension means that a joint has been forced to move beyond its normal range of motion. When this happens, there can be damaged tissues around the joint, and in a more severe case, the ligaments in this joint might stretch or tear. This can cause the joints to become unstable and increase the risk of other injuries such as dislocation.  

So how can chiropractic care help with this?

Hyperextension and Chiropractic Care

In many cases with Hypertension, Chiropractic care has proven to be an effective route of treatment. The severity of the injury is often what determines the treatment. In many cases – especially with more minor injuries, hyperextension is treated by icing the area, which is followed up by resting or immobilizing the joint. 

However, the more severe cases of hyperextension often cause chronic joint pain after treatment. These injuries, such as whiplash, can become incapacitating and lead to chronic neck pain, shoulder and upper back pain, lower back pain, headaches, and fatigue. 

It is in cases such as these that chiropractic treatment can be helpful in reducing the pain of the injury but also in facilitating the healing process and regaining the full range of motion to the injured joint. There are various forms of chiropractic treatment that are used to help restore the normal positioning of the joints that are affected by hyperextension, the most common being spinal or joint manipulation.

Closing

If you have sustained hyperextension injuries and are still suffering from the pain that is often caused by them, consider giving Fletcher Chiropractic a call today! Everyone can benefit from chiropractic care! 

Happy Halloween from Fletcher Chiropractic!

With Halloween coming up this weekend, many children and parents are getting ready for the spooky season to come by preparing costumes and collecting candy to pass out to the community. Families that like to follow a healthy lifestyle will often struggle during this season. It is due to the amounts of candy, soda, and chips that is given out each year. To help keep your family’s health in check, there are many things that you can do this Halloween season to help promote good nutrition and keep a healthy lifestyle.

 Instead of passing out sugary treats such as candy bars, soda cans, gum, candy, or even bags of chips, try passing out a healthier alternative such as cereal bars, trail mix, raisins, or even bags of popcorn. Some fruits like an apple could be another option.  These healthier options allow your body to keep its healthy routine if that is what is desired most.

 Another option that can be tried out is by substituting candy or unhealthy treats for something that is not a food-based treat which can be fun for the kids. Some examples of these alternatives are glowsticks, washable tattoos, pencils, or even bookmarks for children to use in school.  Who does not like free goodies?

With the current pandemic, going house to house or even door to door may not be the most ideal plan during this time but there are many other things that can take place to allow for a fun Halloween season. A small family get together can take place that consists of fun activities like jump rope, sidewalk chalk drawing, pumpkin carving, and even bobbing for apples.

If your family does go out for trick or treating, make sure you wear proper footwear that supports you arches and allows for you to be comfortable during the family trip. You may be doing a lot of walking.  It is important that you have good shoes or even an orthotic that fits your feet. Foot orthotics allow your body to remain stress and tension free in many different areas such as your ankles, feet, legs, and as well as your hips to avoid having your hips be out of alignment causing pain. Another importance about wearing orthotics are properly fitting shoes is that they will help keep your body function appropriately while you are walking while promoting good posture.   This is just part of what chiropractic care can offer to you as we offer a variety of treatments to help you reach your health goals. 

By trying out some of these tips, a more enjoyable and healthier Halloween season will happen even with the current pandemic situation is taking place. Do not let your body get scared.   Chiropractic care is here for you to help you function better and live life without pain.  Most importantly is to have fun! If you have questions, contact us at 402-261-5766 or visit our website at www.fletcherchiropracticllc.com. Happy Halloween!

ACL Injuries and Chiropractic Care

ACL Injuries and Chiropractic Care

An ACL injury is one of the most common and well-known knee injuries. Tearing an ACL often occurs during sports, and it is a common injury among athletes, especially soccer, basketball, and football players. However, ACL injuries can also happen outside of athletes, but it is less common.

What is an ACL?

ACL stands for Anterior Cruciate Ligament, and this ligament runs diagonally across the middle of your knee and has many different functions. The ACL is responsible for stabilizing rotational movements at the knee, which occur when you pivot. The ACL is also a secondary restraint to knee hyperextension.

How Does an ACL Injury Happen?

An ACL injury normally occurs without any contact from another person. The most common form of an ACL injury is a deceleration injury that occurs when an athlete is planting or changes directions, and the ACL cannot withstand the force of it, so it tears. This will cause the knee to give out or buckle. The ACL can also be torn if it is hyperextended when landing from a jump. 

The last way an ACL injury occurs is with direct contact with another person that hyperextends the ligament. However, these injuries often involve more than one ligament.  

How Do You Know That You Tore Your ACL?

When the tear happens, you will often hear a popping noise or feel it give out from under you. Within 24 hours, it should begin to swell and become painful. 

What Is The Treatment for an ACL Tear?

Unfortunately, the only true treatment option for an ACL tear is surgery. The reconstructive surgery, rehabilitation, and recovery process can take 8 to 12 months. This may make you wonder how chiropractic care can help! 

How Can Chiropractic Care Help a Torn ACL?

Going to a chiropractor can help with recovering from an ACL tear post-surgery, but it can also be preventative. Regular chiropractic care can help with the prevention of an ACL injury in an athlete. Helping prevent ACL injuries for athletes includes increasing flexibility and strength to the knees and lower body. 

This doesn’t help if you have already torn your ACL and are looking for other ways to help the long recovery process to possibly move along faster. Depending on the severity of the ACL injury, chiropractic care may be able to assist in the recovery process. A chiropractor can help restore the proper knee function and motion, no matter if it is a sprain or tear. Chiropractic care can help restore the knee to full motion after the initial injury. 

Closing

An ACL injury may also be an indicator of other injuries from playing different high impact sports. If you participate in high impact sports there may be benefits to visiting a chiropractor to improve your flexibility and increase your body’s ability to heal. 

At Fletcher Chiropractic in Lincoln, Nebraska, we want to help you to get back to the sports you love and being able to perform everyday tasks. If you have a torn or injured ACL consider scheduling an appointment today to see if we can help you out!!

How Can Chiropractic Care Help my Allergies?

Fall allergy season is upon us. More than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies each and every year, and allergies are considered to be one of the leading health concerns today. If you live in the Lincoln, Nebraska area, you know allergy season is no joke, but how can chiropractic care help? When people think of chiropractors, they often think of back and neck pain, so how can they help with allergies?

What Are Allergies?

At its base, an allergy is a condition where your immune system reacts abnormally to a foreign substance. This is when your immune system produces antibodies that identify something foreign, such as pollen, as harmful to your body when it isn’t. These allergies can manifest through itching, sneezing, a runny nose, or even rashes and definitely are not fun to deal with.

How Are Allergies Treated?

Allergy treatment can often include over the counter medication, steroids, and even prescription medications. Allergy medication, sprays, and creams are not fun to have to take during the fall and spring months. A result many people who are under chiropractic care have noticed is a reduction in allergy symptoms, which makes those allergies easier to manage in their day to day life.

Combating Allergies with Chiropractic Care

Now you may be wondering, how exactly can a chiropractor help with combating allergies? The immune and respiratory systems rely on communication between the brain and the spinal cord to function properly. If there is a misalignment in your spine, the communication between your brain and spinal cord may be compromised. If your immune system is functioning properly, it helps you deal with stress, fight off sickness and allergies, and make you much healthier overall. So, through a chiropractic spinal alignment, the necessary pathways for communication between your brain and spinal cord are opened up.

So if your immune system is functioning well, you are less likely to be affected by seasonal allergies. Your immune system won’t react as strongly to foreign substances such as pollen, airborne mold, or other common allergens. Research has shown that having regular spinal alignments can help with allergy symptoms.

Closing

Now, you may not normally connect chiropractors to allergies, but we encourage you to seriously consider going to your local chiropractor for allergy relief in the future. Chiropractic care is a safe and effective way to help your body reduce stress and tension which then allows your body to focus more on its other functions like your immune system. Spinal misalignment can happen overnight from sleeping wrong, cell phone usage, improper posture, and other daily activities. Through adjustments, chiropractic care will help relieve the misalignment in your spine that can cause miscommunication between your brain and spinal cord, which will allow your immune system to function better and work harder to fight off allergies.

If you or a loved one suffer from allergies, consider making an appointment today with one of the doctors here at Fletcher Chiropractic! Call us at 402-261-5766 to schedule your appointment.

Can a Chiropractor Help My Clicking Jaw?

Does your jaw click when you open or close it? If so, you might have TMJ, which is a common joint disorder. The good news is that seeing a chiropractor can help ease your symptoms. Plus, you can get exercises to do at home with the soft tissues to loosen the muscles and reduce your jaw clicking. 

What Is TMJ?

Temporomandibular (tem-puh-roe-man-DIB-u-lur) disorder (TMD) is often called TMJ, which is a term for the inflammation of your temporomandibular joint; this is what connects the skull and the mandible. TMJ refers to many conditions that affect the nerves, joints, and jaw muscles. 

The jaw joint is there to connect your lower jawbone, or mandible, to your skull’s temporal bones. The muscles that are connected to your lower jaw let your jaw move around, so when you open your mouth, the ends of the joint move along with the joint’s socket. When you close your mouth, they move back to their original position. That is when you might hear clicking in your jaw. 

What Causes TMJ?

TMJ might be caused by an injury or trauma to the jaw, grinding your teeth in your sleep, or when you are awake. Nail bitters may also get this condition, and autoimmune diseases, infections, or arthritis might also be to blame. Around 12 percent of people in the United States have TMJ, but what they don’t realize is that a chiropractor can help them deal with this condition.

Treatment from a Chiropractor

When you see a chiropractor for your jaw clicking, they will focus on the muscles in the area. They will look at the jaw joint, suboccipital muscles, and the upper two vertebrae of your spine. These all impact the joint significantly, and everything needs to be properly aligned.

The masseter is a deep muscle in the upper jaw, which helps with chewing. You can feel it if you put your hand on your cheek and move your jaw around. The temporalis is a smaller muscle on either side of your head. A chiropractor will help you learn about the different soft tissue movements you can do yourself to help these two muscles, and may even recommend doing an exercise a few times each day for each of the muscles.

No matter what kinds of soft tissue exercises you may be prescribed, your chiropractor will then move on to assess and adjust your jaw with a TMJ adjustment. This is done by seeing which side of your jaw opens the least amount and which side is the closest to functioning normally. That way, they can see which side needs the most attention first. 

If one side of the jaw is stuck, the chiropractor will address this first. A light pushing motion will be used. Then, the chiropractor will reassess the jawbone, and they might find that the joint is aligned properly again. If it is necessary, the chiropractor might use dry needling for very tight joints. In some cases, a laser might be used for the patient, as well.

Seeing a chiropractor can help with jaw clicking that is associated with TMJ. Depending on what is going on with your jaw, one or several treatments might be done, and scheduling an appointment with a chiropractor is your first step towards normal jaw function. If this is something that you’re dealing with, please know that we can help! Give Fletcher Chiropractic, located in Lincoln, Nebraska, a call to schedule an appointment with one of our doctors!

How Physical Therapy and Chiropractic Care Can Work Together

You may not have realized how well physical therapy and chiropractic care can work with each other. With chiropractic care, you will be taking the pressure off of your central nervous system. Tension and pressure can build up in your spinal cord and cause many negative symptoms. With physical therapy, you can strengthen your body. Keep reading to learn more about each of these treatments and how they can help you.

What Chiropractic Care Involves 

Chiropractors work to find the areas of pressure and remove this interference with chiropractic adjustments. The goal of the adjustments is to help decrease tension in your muscles while increasing your range of motion. Adjustments can also help stop some of the pain associated with your condition. This will improve your well-being and overall health.

Chiropractic care is beneficial to you whether or not you have an injury. Every pressure point in your spine and each nerve ending correlate with your organs, which means that having a properly aligned spine is vital to your wellness. An adjustment is painless, non-invasive, and is a good way to help you heal without medication or painful surgeries. Physical therapy can complement your chiropractic adjustments and help you heal faster.

What Physical Therapy Involves 

You can address a range of different issues with physical therapy. That can include sports injuries, fibromyalgia, and other ailments that can cause a person to have decreased physical abilities. Physical therapy treatments can help improve your flexibility, coordination, and strength. With physical therapy, you will do exercises that work out certain areas in your body to help you improve your mobility, and work to stabilize and strengthen your joints, as well.

A good therapist will look at your body as a whole. That way, they can better identify the way that poor joint alignment or posture causes pain and structural weaknesses. Once this has been identified, a treatment plan can be created.

Physical Therapy Treatments 

Sometimes, passive therapy techniques may be used. These can include ice and hot packs, ultrasound therapy, and electrical muscle stimulation. On the other hand, active therapy techniques may also be used, such as therapeutic exercises that will strengthen your body, as well as manual treatments. 

If you want to see both a physical therapist and a chiropractor, you do not have to choose between the two of them. These specialities can and do work together quite well! With chiropractic care, you can have better physical health, spinal alignment, and nerve function. On the other hand, physical therapy can give you an improved range of motion and more strength, including improved muscle, ligament, and tendon function.

If you’re interested in learning more about how to integrate chiropractic care with your current physical therapy program, or how to supplement your chiropractic treatments with physical therapy, give us a call! We’d love to help you achieve your best health! 

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis causes a tremendous amount of pain at the heel of the foot. This area of the foot is the plantar fascia, which is a thick ligament that connects the front of your foot and the heel. It is the built-in shock absorber for your foot, and it helps support your arch while you walk. As you go throughout your day, the heels of your feet support you, and the pain of plantar fasciitis can create a struggle to get through everyday activities. 

What Is Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis is a prevalent foot complaint. Because this area of your foot sees a lot of activity from day to day use, the ligaments can become damaged, causing plantar fascia becomes inflamed, which leads to pain and stiffness. If you suffer from this condition, you probably notice the pain is worse when you stand up after a period of resting or sleeping. If you stay on your feet, the pain is less. The pain could be on the heel, the ball of the foot, or even at the arch. In some cases, there is also swelling. Heel spurs may also be present.  

What Is The Cause of Plantar Fasciitis?

The cause of plantar fasciitis is varied. Many times, it is due to athletic overuse and from high-impact exercises and activities. Sometimes it is because of not wearing the correct footwear. Some people also have flat feet or a high arch that impacts how they walk, which causes inflammation. For others, plantar fasciitis is due to normal aging, or even obesity. 

Conservative Treatments of Plantar Fasciitis

Usually, conservative measures can help with this painful condition. Rest and ice often help to calm the inflammation. Once the swelling is gone, rehabilitation works to help address the strength and flexibility of the lower leg and your foot, which helps keep the condition from returning. Usually soft tissue muscle work like instrument assisted soft tissue motion or massage can be done while you are doing exercises/stretches.

There are a few at-home stretches that can be performed with an ice bottle or golf ball. A chiropractor can help you determine if your feet have an issue that orthotics may be useful. A custom orthotic can be beneficial because they can be individualized based on the patient. An example would be an orthotic insert with a depression hole in the heel end for correction of a heel spur while supporting the foot to help prevent the pronation of the foot.   

Another popular treatment option is the use of a splint at night. This splint keeps the plantar fascia stretched while you sleep, so there is less pain in the morning. You might also consider a foot brace that offers compression during the day to manage pain. A chiropractor can help by adjusting the lower back to restores motion and reduces the irritation to surrounding nerves to help with the condition and helps to stabilize the stress of the ligament. Also, a chiropractor can help you with your overall gait. When your body is adjusted and inline, you are not likely to place any unnecessary stress on your feet. Chiropractors can adjust your feet and other extremities to help you move better.  

Other Treatments for Plantar Fasciitis

If conservative treatments are unsuccessful in treating your plantar fasciitis, there are other options. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), or steroid injections, can be considered. The PRP treatment uses the plasma and platelets to help the body heal itself. The PRP is obtained from the patient and injected into the plantar fascia. Sometimes patients lack blood flow in the inflamed ligament, and blood flow is necessary for healing. This lack of blood flow is why over-the-counter pain relievers do not seem to help all patients with plantar fasciitis. The injections increase blood flow to the area and aid natural healing. Those who suffer from the pain of plantar fasciitis also consider minimally invasive procedures such as Percutaneous Tenotomy. This procedure stimulates a healing response in the heel, and recovery is six to eight weeks. There is usually no need for physical therapy after this procedure, and there is only one small incision.  

Usually, patients and doctors prefer to start with conservative approaches for plantar fasciitis before facing more aggressive options. In the past, the treatment was a traditional open surgery that meant months of recovery. Currently, there are several options to help you cope with plantar fasciitis – and starting with your chiropractor is always a smart choice! If foot pain is something that you’re dealing with, please know that the doctors here at Fletcher Chiropractic in Lincoln, Nebraska are here to help!
