Should I get a Standing Desk?

Whey Is Me

As I continue to search for adequate protein sources for optimum heath and exercise recovery, being as though I have been an ovo lacto vegetarian for the last 30 plus years of my life. I have found a protein that helps with repair, recovery and proper immune function. Whey is the liquid material and globular proteins that is the by product of cheese production from milk. I was a bit hesitant with this because of my history with lactose and milk digestion intolerance. But with my current athletic program it has worked well and because of the lack of casein in this product, my digestion has been stable with the major allergen source in milk being from caseins.

The Arc of Life

If you’re like I was, you might wonder how a chiropractor can help you improve conditions like asthma, headaches or numbness in hands. It all links back to the “Arc of Life” or natural C curve found in your neck. Adam Meade, Doctor of Chiropractic, explains that neurosurgeons refer to the curve of the cervical vertebrae the “Arc of Life” because these bones protect the brain stem which is also a passageway for spinal nerves that affect every organ and bodily function. When any one of the four natural curves (neck, mid back, low back and sacral regions) in the spine is misaligned it causes stress that affects the spinal discs, tissues and nerves. One of the most prevalent and destructive imbalances has to do with the cervical curve, the natural curve in the vertebrae of the neck. When we lose the proper curvature of the cervical and lumbar curves, we lose as much as 50% of our spinal strength. A 45-degree curve/arc gives the spinal cord the most room to function at 100%.

Why Didn’t My Pain Go Away After My First Adjustment?

One of the most frequently asked questions new chiropractic patients ask is “will I feel better right away?” The answer is solely based on the individual, length you had problem and the nature of their spinal issues. Many patients report feeling better right after an adjustment. Many more report feeling relaxed and flexible or “loose” after an adjustment. Sometimes people do not feel any different after their first appointment, which is completely normal. This does not mean the adjustment did not work or that nothing has changed. The normal nerve flow and neurons in the brain are newly restored/connected in your body and it can sometimes take a few days or weeks before you notice a difference or relief in the beginning of treatment.

So how is it that my Arm Pain and Numbness in my Hands is coming from my Neck?

So how is it that my arm pain and numbness in my hands is coming from my neck? So the answer to that is quite simple, while there can be other reasons that may be more serious causing your arm pain.
