Why is stretching so beneficial

It’s easy to forget to stretch. It’s often overlooked because the results are not as visible as lifting weights and squatting—or so you thought. Stretching can lead to better posture, fewer aches and pains and greater confidence.

“Stretching increases your blood flow and circulation for a healthier body and sends oxygen to your brain for a clearer mind.  Berger Chiropractic is now offering "doctor supervised" stretching. Unlike other places wouldn't you want a professional working on you?

Let Us Treat Your Pain from Auto Accidents in Deerfield Beach, FL

Let Us Treat Your Pain from Auto Accidents in Deerfield Beach, FL

A car accident can be a very scary situation. After the initial shock of the accident, the pain and doctor’s visits which follow can be more frightening than the accident itself.

We can help treat your discomfort and aches with creative methods that will mitigate or even alleviate the problem. Our team at Berger Chiropractic and Wellness works towards your optimal health and comfort.

There’s nothing easy about car accidents, and back pain following an accident can grow in intensity and danger as the accident recedes into memory. The spinal cord is a complex system with twenty four bones which stack on top of one another. When one or more of these bones is damaged or misaligned, the others may encounter issues too. A misaligned vertebrae can even irritate your nerves, impairing your body’s ability to send messages throughout the nervous system. Simple back discomfort after a car accident can sometimes balloon into more serious issues within the rest of your body.

Auto accidents can also cause painful whiplash in Deerfield Beach, Fl. Whiplash is an injury which occurs when the soft tissues of the neck are damaged from a sudden jerking motion, such as sitting in a stopped car that is unexpectedly jerked forward by a rear-end collision.

Did You Know Your Tension-Type Headache Might Originate in Your Back?

If you are an office worker, you might find yourself prone to tension-type headaches. These tension headaches can be dull, or throbbing, and make it hard for you to concentrate on your work. But why do you get them? Did you ever consider just how these headaches happen? Is it just general “stress”? Or is it something more?

The Relationship Between Tension Headaches and Your Back
It turns out that tension-type headaches may actually have something to do with the muscles in our back. Specifically, one study found that tenderness in the trapezius muscles was correlated with tension-type headaches in female office workers. (We can assume that this is similar for male office workers, as well.) If you look at a picture of the trapezius muscles, this connection makes a lot more sense. The trapezius muscles, or “traps” for short, are muscles that lay along the spine at the top part of the back. They fan out like diamonds, stretching up into your neck and down into the midsection of the back. Spending a lot of time hunched over a desk or peering into a computer most likely puts stress on these muscles as the head is tilted forward too much in what is called “forward head posture.” These muscles connect to the muscles of the head and face, encouraging stress and pain.

Chiropractic Care for Tension-Type Headache
Fortunately, we have a way to safely treat these headaches through expert chiropractic care. Contact us today for a consultation!

Too Much Food Variety in Your Diet Can Lead to Unhealthy Heating

The American Heart Association (AHA) is now questioning the assumption that eating a diverse array of foods is good for your health. This has been a diet recommendation for years, but doctors and nutritionists don’t agree on what an "array" or "variety" of food means. In fact, including a wide variety of food in your diet may actually be unhealthy. According to new studies, diversity in food choices is tied to poor diet, including eating refined sugars and grains, processed food, and sugar-laden drinks. Doctors once recommended getting a variety of food in your diet because it helps you get all the vitamins and nutrients you need. However, with the rise of cheap junk food and its availability, people are confusing variety with quality. The AHA Behavioral Change for Improving Health Factors Committee reviewed fairly recent studies on the topic of food variety in the diet, including its impact on obesity and eating patterns. Overall, they came to the conclusion that diversity in the diet doesn't necessarily connect to healthy habits. In fact, they discovered evidence suggesting that eating a wider variety of foods is tied to eating more food in general, poor eating habits, and gaining weight. Instead, researchers promote eating a large variety of healthy foods, including whole grains, veggies, and fruits.
