You have an amazing healing power in your brain and spinal cord. Your brain and spinal cord control every function in your body. For your heart to beat, your lungs to breath and for us to even to be talking right now, information must be constantly running over the nerves. The primary function of the spine is to protect your spinal cord. When your spine is in the correct position, all the nerve channels are functioning at 100%. When your spine shifts out of its normal position, the nerves begin to get choked off. These misalignments of the spine are called subluxations. Subluxations not only break down the spine itself, but more importantly put pressure on the nervous system. This means your brain cannot get messages to the rest of the body, causing disease and organ system damage.

How Chiropractors Help Work-Related MSK Disorders
Chiropractors are experts in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of Musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders. Chiropractors can effectively treat work-related MSK disorders getting you back to work and family life. More importantly, chiropractors invest in prevention through patient education and developing exercise plans to keep workers from being reinjured. Conservative care offered by chiropractors, dependent on the injury and mechanism, may include joint manipulation and mobilization, soft tissue therapies, adjunct modalities, rehabilitation, and individualized exercises, and lifestyle advice.

Do you have a healthy curve in your neck?
Your neck has a natural curve to it. This curve allows normal joint motion which then allows for normal spinal cord function. Restoring the natural curves of your spine can improve your posture and range of motion. The best way to determine if you have a healthy curve in your neck is to be evaluated by your chiropractor.

What Is the Best Disinfectant for Surfaces?

What Is the Best Disinfectant for Surfaces?

- Due to it being an enveloped virus (meaning its single-strand RNA is enveloped in a bubble of lipid or fatty molecules), COVID-19 (as all other coronaviruses) is highly susceptible to soap and disinfectants

- To disinfect and sterilize surfaces around your home, you need to clean the surface first. Soap and water is a good choice. Once the surface is clean of dirt and sticky grime, spray your chosen disinfectant on the surface and let it set for up to several minutes before wiping

- If using an alcohol-based disinfectant to inactivate and protect against coronaviruses on surfaces around your home, make sure it contains between 60% and 80% alcohol. Higher concentrations are less potent

- Chlorine disinfectants such as household bleach have broad antimicrobial activity and effectively kills bacteria, fungi, and viruses, including influenza viruses

- Accelerated hydrogen peroxide (AHP) is more effective than 3% hydrogen peroxide and appears to be the most effective virucide overall. It can kill viruses in as little as 30 seconds. Other easy but effective home disinfectants include 10% malt vinegar and distilled white vinegar in combination with 3% hydrogen peroxide (see safety precautions)

How To Cope With Anxiety While Social Distancing

There are ways you can keep yourself engaged and avoid anxiety while social distancing

Social distancing is crucial to slow the spread of COVID-19 but CAN be stressful and put individuals at risk for mental health problems

Q: How can we stay socially engaged?

A: It is essential that people stay active and socially engaged during periods of social distancing and isolation

Call older adults and people with chronic health conditions to give them meaningful social contact during these trying times.

If you find yourself thinking continuously about the risk of illness, try to distract yourself by getting involved in an engaging activity or by picking up the phone to talk with a friend.

You can also try mindfulness meditation.

If you are having trouble sleeping, check out the Veterans Affairs’ app CBT-I Coach (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia), which takes you through different strategies to help quiet your mind at night.

Staying active is the key to good mental health.
