The Pandemic of Work-From-Home Injuries

The Pandemic of Work-From-Home Injuries

"Elizabeth Cuthrell, a Manhattan-based film producer, used to work in an ergonomic office space: comfortable desk chair, monitor at eye level, external keyboard. Then came Covid-19. During stay-at-home she worked on a laptop from a wicker chair, or sometimes on a couch with “cushions like marshmallows.” A month later she felt pain in her neck, wrist and shoulders that sent her to a chiropractor.
“It’s hard to quantify, but this has been a really, really big issue for a lot of my patients,” said Karen Erickson, the chiropractor who treated Ms. Cuthrell. Chiropractors report a surge of injuries and discomfort stemming from the nationwide push to work from home, as millions of workers have spent months clacking away on sofas and beds and awkward kitchen counters. Out with ergonomics, in with hunching over laptops."

Headaches and Chiropractic

Headaches and Chiropractic

"If you have a headache, you’re not alone. Nine out of 10 Americans suffer from headaches. Some are occasional, some frequent, some are dull and throbbing, and some cause debilitating pain and nausea. What do you do when you suffer from a pounding headache? Do you grit your teeth and carry on? Lie down? Pop a pill and hope the pain goes away? There is a better alternative.
Research shows that spinal manipulation – one of the primary treatments provided by doctors of chiropractic – may be an effective treatment option for tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck. A 2014 report in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics (JMPT) found that interventions commonly used in chiropractic care improved outcomes for the treatment of acute and chronic neck pain and increased benefit was shown in several instances where a multimodal approach to neck pain had been used. Also, a 2011 JMPT study found that chiropractic care, including spinal manipulation, improves migraine and cervicogenic headaches. "

Mobility and Health

Mobility and Health

penn state logo

"Flexibility and mobility are two factors of healthy living that are frequently overlooked. Most people tend to focus on other important pieces of healthy living (such as diet and exercise) and allow flexibility and mobility to fall to the wayside. These two factors of healthy living actually have a much larger role than commonly realized. Being flexible and having full joint mobility can have several beneficial implications on quality of life, including: reducing day-to-day pain and increasing vascular health."

Vitamin D Benefits

Vitamin D Benefits

nutra ingredients logo

"Vitamin D refers to two biologically inactive precursors - D3, also known as cholecalciferol, and D2, also known as ergocalciferol. Both D3 and D2 precursors are transformed in the liver and kidneys into 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D), the non-active 'strorage' form, and the active form 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D (1,25(OH)2D).
While our bodies do manufacture vitamin D on exposure to sunshine, the levels in some northern countries are so weak during the winter months that our body makes no vitamin D at all, meaning that dietary supplements and fortified foods are seen by many as the best way to boost intakes of vitamin D."

Secret To Better Health - Exercise

Secret To Better Health - Exercise

 

harvard health logo

 
"Millions of Americans simply aren't moving enough to meet the minimum threshold for good health — that is, burning at least 700 to 1,000 calories a week through physical pursuits. The benefits of exercise may sound too good to be true, but decades of solid science confirm that exercise improves health and can extend your life. Adding as little as half an hour of moderately intense physical activity to your day can help you avoid a host of serious ailments, including heart disease, diabetes, depression, and several types of cancer, particularly breast and colon cancers. Regular exercise can also help you sleep better, reduce stress, control your weight, brighten your mood, sharpen your mental functioning, and improve your sex life.
A well-rounded exercise program has four components: aerobic activity, strength training, flexibility training, and balance exercises. Each benefits your body in a different way."

Strong Spine, Healthy Mobility

"Lots of body systems work together to enable to seemingly simple act of walking, but your spine is what allows your body to be in a stable, upright position. Just as a strong spine and good posture are essential to healthy mobility, a painful spine can eliminate it.

Mobility is more than just your ability to walk. Mobility is your independence. By recognizing the role your spine plays in your mobility’s health, you are protecting your long-term quality of life."

Probiotics and Health

Probiotics and Health

harvard health

"When you consider ways to stay healthy as cold and flu season approaches, consuming live bacteria may not be at the top of your list. But not all bacteria are bad for you. In fact, "good" bacteria found in food and dietary supplements may help you ward off illness this winter and throughout the year. The supplements are called probiotics. "Probiotics have been shown to secrete protective substances which turn on the immune system and prevent pathogens from taking hold and creating major disease," says Dr. Allan Walker, director of the Division of Nutrition at Harvard Medical School and a world-renowned expert in the probiotics field."
