Itâs actually the BEST time to come in!</p> <p>The field of neuro-immunology has well established the connection between a healthy nerve system and normal immune function. Chiropractic adjustments boost your ability to fight off colds and flus by unlocking your spine, clearing nerve tension and unleashing your immune POTENTIAL! And doesnât it make sense to keep your immune system working its best so you can get better faster?</p> <p>You wouldnât cancel a dental appointment because your tooth hurt. Likewise, donât cancel your Chiropractic appointment when your nerve system is fighting to get well. Even if youâre under the weather, try not to miss adjustmentsâ and donât worry about the other folks in the office getting sick â everyone here will be adjusted, protected and ready to serve you!</p> <p>Â</p> <p>Â</p> <p>Â</p> Drive Through Health http://www.casanovachiropractic.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2019/01/09/drive-through-health/ Wed, 09 Jan 2019 14:25:00 -0500 <p><img alt="" src="https://casanovachiropractic.com/uploads/dRIVE%20THROUGH%20HEALTH.PNG" style="width: 761px; height: 411px;" /></p> <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt"><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">In todayâs fast paced world, âinstantâ trumps process. Drive through windows and quick fixes are prized in cultures where instant gratification rules supreme. Unfortunately, these principles donât work so well when it comes to your health!</span></p> <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt"><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">It takes time for a good diet to reflect on your weightâ time for exercise to improve the tone and strength to your musclesâ and of course, it takes time for your chiropractic adjustments to create the positive restorative effects in your nerve system. Most everything that is good for you takes time to complete.</span></p> <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt"><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Donât let the convenience of your local pharmacy, fast food or savings bank drive through lull you into complacency. âQuickâ rarely fixes anything.

But the Chiropractor adjusts a totally different part of your spine...not</p> <p>even close to where you feel the pain. Why is that?</p> <p>Â</p> <p>There&#39;s an old saying that goes when you step on a dog&#39;s tail, it barks out theÂ</p> <p>other end. In Chiropractic, that means where you hurt (the bark) isn&#39;t necessarilyÂ</p> <p>where the problem is (the tail). Many times the symptom you feel in one area is</p> <p>due to a remote cause. For example, someone with sciatica may feel pain down</p> <p>their leg, but the cause of the problem is a Vertebral Subluxation in their spine.</p> <p>Â</p> <p>Chiropractors recognize that if you address the cause of the symptoms, the body</p> <p>will no longer have a need to produce it. That&#39;s why Chiropractors focus on fixing</p> <p>underlying problems and not superficial effects. Chasing after symptoms is like aÂ</p> <p>dog chasing its own tail - spinning around and around until it gets dizzy, confused</p> <p>and frustrated. It&#39;s much smarter to address the underlying cause from the start.</p> Solid Foundation http://www.casanovachiropractic.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2018/11/28/solid-foundation/ Wed, 28 Nov 2018 13:31:51 -0500 <p><img alt="" src="https://casanovachiropractic.com/uploads/stucture.PNG" style="width: 767px; height: 399px;" /></p> <p>Â</p> <p>Structures built on strong foundations last. The same goes for your health.

When this power is allowed to express itself 100%, health supports us. When the power is interfered with, we succumb to dis-ease! Eating properly is important, as is exerciseâ but if the power that holds your body together doesnât flow, the most important house you live in will crumble!</p> <p>Health built on a foundation of drug therapy is risky and doesnât stand for long.

It picks up unsolicited physical, chemical and emotional stress (like spyware) which causes your body to slow down, run sluggish and at times âfreeze up.â</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Helvetica&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Getting an adjustment is like hitting Control+Alt+Delete.

That means more energy, better sleep and improved physical function in you daily life!</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="margin: 0px;"><font face="Calibri">Â</font></span></p> Daylight Subluxation Time http://www.casanovachiropractic.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2018/11/06/daylight-subluxation-time/ Tue, 06 Nov 2018 12:56:14 -0500 <p><img alt="" src="https://casanovachiropractic.com/uploads/daylight.PNG" style="width: 480px; height: 246px;" /></p> <p>Â</p> <p>What does turning your clocks back and subluxations have in common?

Is anxiety a perpetual state of your being? Unfortunately, that constant fear of whatâs lurking in the closet can be creating the chronic pain youâre experiencing in your body right now!</span></p> <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt;background:white;word-spacing:0px"><span style="margin: 0px; color: rgb(38, 40, 42); font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Â</span></p> <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt;background:white;word-spacing:0px"><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">According to HANS Selye MD, well known author of the Stress of Life, occasional anxious moments elicit a reflex stress response in our bodies. However, prolonged and constant levels of anxiety can cause an OVER reaction. Your muscles become so hypertonic, they unintentionally lock your spine out of alignment â creating posture distortions, chronic immobility and potential nerve damage (a.k.a subluxations). Thatâs how constant FEAR causes constant PAIN.</span></p> <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt;background:white;word-spacing:0px"><span style="margin: 0px; color: rgb(38, 40, 42); font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Â</span></p> <p style="background: white; margin: 14.66px 0px; word-spacing: 0px;"><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Nothing is scarier than living in a perpetual, subluxated state. If you know someone whoâs suffering with chronic stress, anxiety and pain, tell them how Chiropractic care can potentially pull them from the darkness of dis-ease into the light of health and happiness.

Nor would you hire a child abuser to babysit your kids. So what confidence would you have in a drug company solving the greatest pharmaceutical induced addiction crisis in our communities today?Â</p> <p>In perhaps the most egregious example of âthe fox guarding the hen house,â the maker of OxyContin just procured a drug patent to treat the very opioid addiction it created in the first place. Seems Purdue Pharma has no qualms adding MORE chemicals to the mix, even after being named in multiple lawsuits for allegedly fueling the opioid epidemic in the first place!</p> <p>You canât solve a problem (let alone a national crisis) with the same philosophy that created it. Better health through better chemistry is a flawed approach â and our countryâs problem with prescription pain killers is just one tragic result of it. More drugs to clean up an already out of control drug problemâ sounds Oxy-Moronic doesnât it?</p> Diagnose and Diagnose-er http://www.casanovachiropractic.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2018/10/16/diagnose-and-diagnoseer/ Tue, 16 Oct 2018 13:00:00 -0400 <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt"><img alt="" src="https://casanovachiropractic.com/uploads/Diagnose.PNG" style="width: 754px; height: 395px;" /></p> <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt">Â</p> <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt"><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">The word diagnosis derives from the Latin âdiâ which means two, and âagnosisâ which means without knowledge. So you can say a diagnosis is a meeting of two minds that donât have a clue about whatâs going on â not very comforting if itâs a team of doctors trying to figure out whatâs wrong with you!</span></p> <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt"><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">A recent study in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) revealed some rather shocking numbers about physiciansâ diagnostic accuracy and confidence (1). Turns out the 118 MDs who participated in the study were right only 55% of the time on easy cases and 6% on the tough ones. Even more surprising, an earlier Pew Survey (2) showed that patients were 41% accurate in their own self-diagnosis from on-line resources, giving them a statistical advantage over their more âlearnedâ MD counterparts.</span></p> <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt"><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">So the question is, do we really have a âhealth crisisâ in this country, or is it just an âover diagnosisâ problem â a system clogged with people lead to believe they have pressing healthy issues when in fact they donât? When it comes to knowing what ails you, two heads arenât necessarily better than one. Maybe itâs smarter to just trust the REAL doctor inside you!</span></p> <p style="margin-top:0in;margin-right:0in;margin-bottom:0in;margin-left:.5in; margin-bottom:.0001pt"><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">(1)</span><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Times New Roman&quot;,serif; font-size: 7pt;"> </span><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">JAMA â Physiciansâ Diagnostic Accuracy, Confidence, and Resource Requests Nov 2013, Meyer et al</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">    Â (2) Pew Research Internet Project â Health Online 2013, Fox et al </span></p> <p style="margin: 0px;">Â</p> <p style="margin: 0px;">Â</p> It's not the Weather http://www.casanovachiropractic.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2018/10/09/its-not-the-weather/ Tue, 09 Oct 2018 12:10:26 -0400 <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt"><img alt="" src="https://casanovachiropractic.com/uploads/weather.PNG" style="width: 764px; height: 391px;" /></p> <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt"><span 13.5pt="" style="margin: 0px; color: rgb(38, 40, 42); font-family: ">Knee sore on Mondayâ creaky back on Tuesdayâ congested on Wednesday â there must be bad weather in the forecast.

Here&#39;s how it all started as told by our founder Dr. D. D. Palmer.</p> <p>"Harvey Lillard, a janitor, in the Ryan Block, where I had my office , had been deaf for 17 years that he could not hear the racket of a wagon on the street or the ticking of a watch. I made inquiry as to the cause of his deafness and was informed that when he was exerting himself in a cramped, stooping position, he felt something give way in his back and immediately became deaf.</p> <p>An examination showed a vertebra racked from its normal position. I reasonedÂthat if the vertebra was replaced, the man&#39;s hearing should be restored. With this object in view, a half hour&#39;s talk persuaded Mr. LillardÂto allow me to replace it. I racked it into position by using the spinous process as a lever and soon the man could hear as before.</p> <p>There was nothing "accidental" about this, as it was accomplished with an object in view, and the result expected was obtained. There was nothing "crude" about this adjustment; it was specific, so much that no Chiropractor has equaled it."</p> <p>And that is how Chiropractic was born on September 18, 1895 - good thing D.D. was a great persuader!</p> <p>Happy 123rd Birthday!!</p> Band Aids Don't Heal http://www.casanovachiropractic.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2018/09/17/band-aids-dont-heal/ Mon, 17 Sep 2018 11:54:21 -0400 <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt"><span style="font-size:12.0pt;font-family:&quot;Helvetica&quot;,sans-serif; mso-fareast-font-family:&quot;Times New Roman&quot;;color:#26282A"><o:p></o:p></span></p> <p><img alt="" src="https://casanovachiropractic.com/uploads/Band_Aids_Don_t_Heal.png" style="width: 763px; height: 400px;" /></p> <p>When you get a paper cut, the natural thing to do (after getting over the intense pain) is clean it up and put a Band Aid on it to protect it from getting irritated. After a few days when the bandage comes off, the cut is hardly noticeable. The question is, did the Band Aid do the healing?</p> <p>Band Aids and Chiropractic Adjustments have something in commonâ neither one have the ability to heal you. Sure, both are helpful after an injury. But they can only provide an environment conducive for healing to take place. Band Aids approximate damaged skin to optimize the mending, adjustments approximate misaligned vertebrae to optimize nerve flow â but itâs the innate healing power of life inside you that scripts the repair!</p> <p>The next time you come for an adjustment to instantly ease your headache, your sciatica or your sleeping problems, understand itâs not the adjustment that produces the result. Chiropractors donât perform miracles. The doctor inside you is the one who does that work!</p> Subluxations Don't Take Vacations http://www.casanovachiropractic.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2018/08/31/subluxations-dont-take-vacations/ Fri, 31 Aug 2018 11:45:15 -0400 <p><img alt="" src="https://casanovachiropractic.com/uploads/Subluxations_Don_t_Take_Vacations.png" style="width: 761px; height: 400px;" /></p> <p>Toes in the sand, not a cloud in the sky, 75 degree water temps. Vacations are the perfect time to decompress, spend precious time with family and friends and reconnect with your soul. What could possibly stress your body?</p> <p>Â</p> <p>How about ten days of sleep on a mushy mattress? Or two hours of novice water skiing/body dragging lessons. Not to mention the bottomless Mojitoâs and obligatory trips to the dessert buffetâand donât forget nursing the nasty sunburn from day three. Unfortunately, stress doesnât take time off. The scenery may change but your nerve system is still hard at work â reacting and adapting to those ârelaxingâ shifts in routine. Itâs a prime opportunity to become subluxated!</p> <p>Â</p> <p>If youâve been away from the office for a while, we hope youâre well rested. But now itâs time to get back on track and into a healthy regimen; especially getting your spine checked and cleared of subluxations. When you need to recover from vacation â put chiropractic on top of your itinerary!</p> <p>Â</p> The Resonance of Healing http://www.casanovachiropractic.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2018/08/25/the-resonance-of-healing/ Sat, 25 Aug 2018 11:59:20 -0400 <p><img alt="" src="https://casanovachiropractic.com/uploads/The_Resonance_of_Healing.png" style="width: 761px; height: 399px;" /></p> <p>In physics, resonance occurs when an object vibrating at a specific rate transfers its frequency to a second object as the two approximate each other. Think of a still turning fork taking on the vibration of another as they are brought closer in proximity. A similar transfer of âenergyâ happens in true healing environments!</p> <p>When a sick individual seeks HEALTH in a place of sickness (i.e. a hospital) the unfortunate result may be more sickness â the negative vibration of the environment amplifying within the individual searching for help. If a sick individual, on the other hand, seeks health in environments that vibrate HEALTH energy, syncing and resonating with that place usually produces a healthy response! You slowly take on the environment you surround yourself withâ namely HEALTH!</p> <p>Logically, if you want more health, itâs smarter to âalignâ yourself with environments that emit that frequency. A good place to start is at your chiropractorâs officeâ we radiate all the health energy you need right here!Â</p> Blueprint vs. Builder http://www.casanovachiropractic.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2018/08/25/blueprint-vs-builder/ Sat, 25 Aug 2018 11:57:55 -0400 <p><img alt="" src="https://casanovachiropractic.com/uploads/Blueprint_vs._Builder.png" style="width: 764px; height: 401px;" /></p> <p>You can possess the most beautiful, detailed and well thought out set of blueprints for a mansion, but without a competent general contractor to execute those plans, the structure doesnât get built. The plan is worthless without a builder.</p> <p>You can have the perfect blend of DNA â Brad Pittâs good looks, Einsteinâs intellect, Michael Jordonâs athletic ability. But your genetic jackpot would stay dormant without an innate intelligence to turn the sequence on, yielding the perfect end product. The code is useless without life!</p> <p>In medicine, much emphasis is placed on the blueprintâs (DNAâs) influence on health, while chiropractic, emphasis is rightly given to the power which creates and animates the matter in the first place. The former is USELESS without the latter!</p> A Bowling Ball on a Stick http://www.casanovachiropractic.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2018/08/25/a-bowling-ball-on-a-stick/ Sat, 25 Aug 2018 11:56:47 -0400 <p><img alt="" src="https://casanovachiropractic.com/uploads/A_Bowling_Ball_on_a_Stick.png" style="width: 764px; height: 403px;" /></p> <p>Thatâs what your head and neck basically are. A 12â14lbs weight balanced on top of a segmented, 2 inch diameter dowel, with a âTwizzlerâ consistency spinal cord inside. Itâs not surprising the prevalence of neck pain, muscle tension and nerve irritation now considering the extreme strain those structures are under when youâre bent over a computer screen or cell phone all day.</p> <p>Every inch your head creeps forward from its neutral, relaxed position adds 10lbs of perceived weight on your neck. For the average person glued to their mobile device thatâs like adding 42-52lbs of extra strain to your muscles and supporting ligaments throughout the day. Try it for yourselfâ hold a bowling ball close to your chest, then extended way out in front of you. Doesnât take long to figure out which position taxes your muscles and joints more â resulting in more pain, more stiffness and more degenerative dis-ease.</p> <p>The solution â do some âopposingâ good for your neck. Ditching the cell phone is an unrealistic request (no oneâs going to do that). But you can incorporate healthy countermeasures like regular chiropractic adjustment and home stretches to mitigate the stress your neck experiences from spending hours on a mobile device. If you donât, your health could end up in the gutter!</p> Keystone of Health http://www.casanovachiropractic.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2018/08/25/keystone-of-health/ Sat, 25 Aug 2018 11:55:24 -0400 <p>Â</p> <p><img alt="" src="https://casanovachiropractic.com/uploads/Keystone_of_Health.png" style="width: 762px; height: 398px;" /></p> <p>The strength and stability of an arch is unparalleled in architecture. Each block supports massive loads from above while evenly dissipating stress to the foundation below â the most important block being the keystone. Without it, the entire structure would fail.</p> <p>If your health was an arch made of building blocks like good dietary habits, proper rest and exercise, the âkeystoneâ holding everything together would be regular Chiropractic care! Keeping your spine in proper alignment not only maintains structural integrity, but keeps your nerve system functioning at its optimum â and without a clear nerve system, your body couldnât take full advantage of all those good habits in the first place.</p> <p>Can your body withstand the loads of life without Chiropractic care? Eating right and getting enough rest are important to guarding your health, but itâs a strong nerve system (supported by regular spinal adjustments) that keeps everything in place. Make sure youâre not missing this important keystone!Â</p> RE-Creation http://www.casanovachiropractic.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2018/08/25/recreation/ Sat, 25 Aug 2018 11:54:17 -0400 <p><img alt="" src="https://casanovachiropractic.com/uploads/RE-Creation.png" style="width: 761px; height: 401px;" /></p> <p>The Sixth Principle in Chiropractic states there is no process which does not require time, including the healing process. BJ Palmer (the developer of Chiropractic) believed that with time and clarity in the nerve system, the body could heal itself in just about any situation!</p> <p>A sick cell is replaced by a healthy one â healthy cells become healthy tissues â healthy tissues become healthy organs â healthy organs make a healthy human being. The conversion from sickness to wellness is an innate process that can only be performed by the doctor within you, via a healthy, toned nerve system.</p> <p>Healing is therefore a process of RE-Creating yourself, one cell at a time, over a period of time. The power that made your body is more than capable of converting you from sickness to wellness. All it needs is a clear pathway and enough sand in the hour glass to accomplish it!</p> Where You Really Live http://www.casanovachiropractic.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2018/07/18/where-you-really-live/ Wed, 18 Jul 2018 18:25:28 -0400 <p><img height="403" src="https://casanovachiropractic.com/uploads/image(9).png" width="768" /></p> <p>What do you use to see with? If you said your eyesâ youâd be wrong. How about hearing? If you said earsâ wrong again. You donât see or hear with your eyes or ears. Those are just end organs for collecting light and sound waves. To actually see and hear you have to interpret those waves with your nerves and brain (Nerve System) first!</p> <p>In reality, you live in your Nerve System. EVERYTHING you experience in life is processed through itâ what you see, what you hear, what you feel! Thatâs why Chiropractors care so much about keeping it healthy. If your Nerve System is stressed, there goes your ability to interpret your world, and there goes your ability to successfully navigate life.</p> <p>Regular adjustments keep your Nerve System clear so you can respond to lifeâs challenges in a positive way. If youâre feeling a little foggy, or just disconnected from the world, maybe itâs time for some Nerve System house cleaning. Give your Chiropractor a call today and get reconnected to life!</p> Before the Flat http://www.casanovachiropractic.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2018/07/12/before-the-flat/ Thu, 12 Jul 2018 22:29:07 -0400 <p><img height="410" src="https://casanovachiropractic.com/uploads/image(7).png" width="769" /></p> <p>More work gets dumped on your desk at quitting timeâschool calls to schedule an emergency parent/teacher meetingâstress pumps into your life like air pumping into a bicycle tire, with no end in sight â if some pressure isnât let out soon, youâre bound to burst!</p> <p>As resilient as you think you are, your nerve system can only absorb so much stress before it succumbs to the load. When it finally gets a flat, your health and your life comes to a halt. But thereâs something simple you can do to avoid such a disaster.</p> <p>Spinal adjustments act like the relief valve on an over inflated tire. Just a gentle push and PSSSSSSSâ all that pent up stress comes out. Thatâs why you feel so light and depressurized after your chiropractic visit. Doesnât it make good sense to ease lifeâs pressure regularly before you pop?</p> Which drop did it? http://www.casanovachiropractic.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2018/06/19/which-drop-did-it/ Tue, 19 Jun 2018 12:03:08 -0400 <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt"><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">A titration test analyzes how many drops of a chemical it takes to create a specific reaction â usually a change in solution color. Drop by drop, the reagent is added until an observable change is seen. And if asked which drop finally made the difference, the correct answer would be <b>they all did!</b></span></p> <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt"><span style="margin: 0px; font-family: &quot;Helvetica&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;"><font color="#000000">Â</font></span></p> <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt"><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Chiropractic care works in similar fashion. Often a patient will exclaim after a visit ââdoc, that last adjustment really did it, I felt better right away!â In reality, it wasnât just the ONE adjustment that did the trick â the past ones contributed, as well the future ones. The effect is cumulative.</span></p> <p style="margin:0in;margin-bottom:.0001pt"><span style="margin: 0px; font-family: &quot;Helvetica&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;"><font color="#000000">Â</font></span></p> <p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">When adjusted regularly, drop by drop, you eventually reap the rewards in improved health, higher function and realized potential.
