THAT ARTHUR ITIS! What A Pain! I'd end my relationship with him in a snap of my fingers, If I could only get my poor fingers to work!Recently, I heard someone say, "I used to not believe in chiropractic, but I do now." What really made me smile was the notion that chiropractic was something you could believe or disbelieve.This question of believing is funny: Primitive man believed that the sun helped plants to grow. Belief in the sun's power was so great that some cultures made...
Sciatica is the inflammation of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is the largest and longest nerve in the entire body.

"Caution: Low Shoulder" is an obvious danger sign. On the highway, it means to watch where you're going. If you get too close to the side of the road, you'll slide off into the ditch where you might get stuck or even roll your car. When you have a low shoulder, you may be in danger of sliding off into ill health. A low shoulder can often indicate a musculo-skeletal (muscles and the bones they're attached to) imbalance that can create functional problems, as well as, pain.St...
No one would disagree that shoulders and arms are pretty convenient things to have. The Designer of the human body made the shoulders with special kinds of joints that allow wide ranging, rotating movement. Not only can we swing a hand we're holding, but also we can wave "hello" with both arms thrown over our heads in greeting. Our arms are beautifully made to carry tools and babies, reach into a car's interior or raise a flag or fork.Of course, many people's lives and jobs...
Except for hard rock played at ear-splitting volume, it is hard to imagine music causing pain. Well, it is hard for the music listener to imagine pain, but ask a musician and you may get a different, fairly specific answer.The fact is that musicians, depending on their instrument, are prone to specific injuries. Certain musical instruments force the musician to use unnatural, stressed postures for long periods of time. Rapid movement necessary to play difficult pieces of music adds to the beauty...
That's right. The second line used to read "How does your GARDEN grow?" A more appropriate question is becoming: "How does your ALLERGY grow?". According to information released in December, 1999 by the American College of Asthma, Allergy, and Immunology, the number of people suffering from allergies has grown from 12 to 38 percent in a thirty year period. According to Thomas Ogren who has spent the last 11 years studying allergies, allergic asthma has now become the numb...
Allergies are a hypersensitive immune system's reactions to normal antigens in the environment. Simply, allergic symptoms like runny nose, wheezing, hives, inflammation, stomach cramps, or itching are the body's reaction to something it does not like. Uncomfortable and, sometimes, life-threatening physical reactions can occur when an allergic person comes in contact with an allergen, whether it is inhaled, eaten, or touched. What healthy bodies perceive as non-threatening, the allergic p...
Hay fever is an awful illness to deal with. Sometimes referred to as "allergic rhinitis", hay fever is a name given to an annoying collection of symptoms. These symptoms are the result of the body's overreaction to a substance it reads as poisonous. The symptoms associated with hay fever are nasal stuffiness, congestion, sneezing, runny nose, itchy and watery eyes, fatigue, difficulty sleeping, scratchy throat, irritating cough, and postnasal drip. Often, hay fever strikes people a...
Did you know that we all have what's called "normal flora" up our noses? The truth is some kinds of bacteria ("normal flora") live out their lives in our sinus cavities. They can't really bother us-except when certain unhealthy conditions exist in the sinuses that allow bacteria to grow easily and quickly.Sinusitis is the inflammation of the lining of the membranes of any of the paranasal sinuses. This inflammation causes a swelling of the mucosa (the mucous membrane)...
