Yale Study, Chiropractic Care Is Today Contributing Toward A 50 Percent Reduction In Opioid Prescriptions Issued In The United States

According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse, every day 130 people die in the United States from drug abuse. 💔

In addition, "The CDC estimates that the total "economic burden" of prescription opioid misuse alone in the United States is $78.5 billion a year, including the costs of healthcare, lost productivity, addiction treatment, and criminal justice involvement." You can check that info out here. ----> https://www.drugabuse.gov/drugs-abuse/opioids/opioid-overdose-crisis

These are hard stats to swallow.

Thankfully light is starting to shed on the benefits of alternative options and we're proud to be part of that.

"Recent news reports have revealed that, based on research from the Yale School of Medicine, patients who have visited a chiropractor for musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions are currently 49 percent less likely to be issued and to receive an opioid prescription," explains Dr. Zack, "when compared to their counterparts who sought help from other healthcare providers."

Infants need to move and learn how to stabilize their bodies by themselves. Our movement patterns begin during infancy.

I want to touch on two devices that are still very commonly used, but can hinder functional development by creating a false sense of stability.

The first one is a device that allows your infant to sit up. These are very common because they allow you to place your infant (once old enough to hold their head up) in a location while you are with them, allowing you to keep your arms free with baby near by. They do make life easier for us parents, however, they decrease the child's development by eliminating the need for them to use that body part or system for support.

The second device is any assisted walking devices that hold the baby up from their bottom. Although they may allow baby to mimic the movements, they are not using any of the musculature that helps them gain stability and strength needed to perform these movements on their own.

Now, this isn't to say that these devices can never be used but limiting the time spent in them is important.

If you have any questions on this topic or others please feel free to reach out for clarification or suggestions. Parenting littles is tough enough, we hope to be a positive resource for you. :)

Why working out to "failure" may fail you.

ON THE BLOG!

Today the notion of proper form while lifting is at the forefront of my mind as I see patients of every age who can decrease their ailments simply by focusing on proper mechanics while they are lifting objects.

I have patients almost everyday who say something along the lines of “I was working out and while doing _______ felt some pain but decided to push through it.” Or, “Today we had to do X amount of handstand push-ups, cleans, snatches, squats until exhaustion and now my ______ hurts.”

"Dr. Landon has been a life saver. I had neck pain for almost 2 years that adjustments elsewhere just were not working long term. Working with Cornerstone, my neck pain has been almost nonexistent. Dr Landon spends time with you at each appointment to get to the root of the issue. Highly recommend Cornerstone and Dr Landon for your Chiropractic and Massage needs!"

With our own little bundle #2 on the way we are reminded that this is important to share!

We love our baby carriers but proper hip development should always come first.

We would also like to note that the baby "wearer" should also have the waist strap up higher, going straight across the front rather than dropping down. This ensures a healthy position for both child and carrier.

Keep this in mind when you make or purchase a baby carrier!

FAQ: What's that noise when I get adjusted?

Answer: Thankfully, it's not your bones cracking. When there is dysfunction within a joint, a vacuum is created. The adjustment breaks that vacuum releasing gasses which results in a popping noise helping to resolve the dysfunction.

You're Out. Wait, What?

>> NEW BLOG POST!

Let's get away from the term “Your _______ is out.”

If you have been to a chiropractor or know someone who has been, you will undoubtedly hear the term “my ________ is out, and that’s what is causing my pain.”

As a chiropractor and a functional movement expert that phrase is like nails on a chalkboard to me, because in most instances that is far from the truth.

I understand why people say it, but rather than getting to the actual cause and problem, it gives the patient a generic answer without educating the patient on what is happening and how chiropractic can fix it. Frankly, it comes down to it being easier to explain and thus easier to understand, however that doesn’t mean that it is the correct thing to do...

Shout out to our friends over at Premier Chiropractic in Minot, ND.

A great demonstration on how small changes in our approach can make a big difference!

True Stability

Lots of different ideas out there still to this day about what is true stability in the core. Some still believe that sucking your belly in is what is going to create the most amount of stability ❌❌

The low back is stabilized via intra-abdominal pressure (IAP). IAP is created via concentric activation of the diaphragm, and 360 degree activation of the abdominals. This creates a “cylinder” of stability through the lumbar spine

Here is one of many examples of how we can test which is more stable. If you watch closely Sydney dips into lumbar extension (flares her ribcage) during the first resistance attempt. The second attempt, when she has proper activation she maintains her abdominal cylinder when resisting pressure (via IAP)✅✅
