Computer Use Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Every day, assembly line workers, keyboard operators, grocery store clerks, and many others, receive microtraumas to their hands and wrists. Vibration and repetitive motions, when combined with spinal problems and other joint dysfunction, can result in a condition known as carpal tunnel syndrome. The major nerve controlling the thumb, index, and parts of the middle and ring finger is called the median nerve. From the tip of your fingers, it travels through the bones in your wrist, past your elbow, up your arm, through your shoulder and neck, and finally to your spinal cord. Problems can develop in one or more of these areas. The carpal "tunnel" is formed by bones in the wrist. The median nerve, tendons, and blood vessels pass through this opening. If one or more of the bones forming this tunnel should collapse, inflammation, nerve pressure, and painful symptoms in the wrist can result. The median nerve connects to the spinal cord through openings between bones in the lower neck. When these spinal bones lose their normal motion or position, they can cause problems in the fingers and wrist. After a thorough examination, your chiropractic doctor will perform specific adjustments where needed to help normalize structure and reduce nerve irritation. When given time, conservative chiropractic care has produced excellent results with carpal tunnel problems without drugs or surgery.

Low Speed Rear-End Collisions

Normal movement of the cervical spine is a smooth motion in which every vertebral segment contributes evenly. Neck motion during a rear-end collision is completely different from everyday motion. Very early in a collision, the lower cervical spine experiences a rapid bending while the rest of the cervical spine remains relatively straight. This rapid bending can strain the joints of the lower cervical spine, resulting in tears and inflammation of the joints. The rapid motion of the neck during a crash can result in a number of injuries-many of which are impossible to see on x-rays or MRI. The facet joints are the key to normal, healthy spinal motion. The facets are on the rear portion of the vertebrae, and angled backwards. During normal spinal motion, the joints glide over one another smoothly and evenly. The pain from inflamed facet joints is transmitted by the medial  branch of the dorsal ramus. Stimulation of the facet nerves ofter results in referred pain. Referred pain is when pain is felt in a different area of the body from where the injury actually lies. Injury to the lower facet joints can create pain in the lower neck, shoulders and in the mid-back.

Chiropractic the Low Force Adjustment.

There are many types of Adjustments. Some are stronger then others. Why would your Chiropractor choose to use Low force vs. High force? Most people want an adjustment that is comfortable and does not irritate their condition. A good chiropractor will have different techniques available to use for different conditions and different types of patients. Everybody knows the high force adjustment (ie: poping noises), but the low force adjustment usually has very little poping associated with it. The low force adjustment works just as well as the high force adjustment. Dr. Price uses both types of Adjustments and will use low force adjustment regularly. If a patient requests low force type of adjustment that is what will be performed. After a patient has been in a Auto Accident their neck or back can be very painful. The initial few visits we like to use a low force adjustment to re-aline their spine. This is comfortable to the patient. If you or someone  you know is interested in getting an adjustment and would like information on low force adjusting please call us or visit our website at . The  Neck and Back pain Clinic

My first day

My name is Jennifer and I am a Massage Therapist. I started working for Dr. Price yesterday. Needless to say I am no stranger to Chiropractic care. After my car accident I went to the hospital and they did what hospitals do best and pumped me full of pain killers. The pain killers wore off and I had just masked the pain for a week. I went to see a Chiropractor, got adjusted and that was the first day I felt good. Without the Chiropractic care who knows how long I would have been in pain. Since then Chiropractic care is the only care I receive, even if I am not in pain I go just for maintenance. I sleep better, walk taller, i can exercise harder and longer, even my posture has improved all because of my Chiropractor. I don't remember the last time I took something for pain. I feel great everyday!  I love working for Chiropractor's because of how caring they are. They take time to get to know your problem area's and help find solutions to your pain, not cover them with pills. I will forever work with Chiropractor's and help people heal their pain.

I just had an Adjustment and I feel 80% better !

As a Chiropractor I am not immune to Low Back Pain. I sometimes experience sever Lower Back Pain from all types of activities. I know better, but sometimes I wait to see if it will just go away in a few days. Most of the time it will get worse and last for a few weeks. After about 1 week, I have had enough. I call a Chiropractic friend and get in. I went yesterday after suffering with lower back pain for 2 weeks. I used all the modalities I had (ie: ultrasound and Electricmuscle stim) that did not help. I stretched and went for massages that did not help, the massage actually made it worse. Once I was adjusted I felt 80% better, The next adjustment should get me to 90 or 100% better. There is no replacement for a good adjustment. Check out our website at

Acupuncture for Treatment of Auto Accident Patients

Most auto accidents happen when you least expect it. When vehicles collided they put out enormous force. This force that is generated causes damage to the vehicle and the people inside the vehicle. Injuries happen and you soon find your way to the Chiropractor / Acupuncturist. Once the injuries are assessed the treatment will begin. One form of treatment is Acupuncture. Acupuncture is a ancient form of treatment. This type of treatment is very effective in pain reduction and the reduction of inflammation. Once the acu-points have been chosen by the Doctor, the art of inserting needles in a particular patten to get the best results begins. Some Doc's will hook up microcurrent to the needles for increased results,  this works well. After 20-30mins of Acupuncture the patient can get instant results or results that come on gradually. 8-12 treatments is recommended and results can happen right away or gradually. If you or any one you know was in a car accident please check out our website . We are located in scottsdale, az at the NE corner of Miller rd and Indian School Rd zip code 85251.

Is Pain your enemy?

When a patient comes to me with pain, weather the lower back or neck area ect... My main objective is to get that patient out of pain without medication. When we here the word Chronic Pain, it can mean allot of different problems are going on at the same time. The brain hold memory of this type of pain. You and your body remember this type of pain, which makes it much harder to deal with. Finding an exercise the patient can do to relieve this chronic pain is very important. Demnishing pain levels with exercise is a start. Chronic pain is a vicious cycle that returns. Understanding that this type of pain is also a memory that the body and brain are familiar with. We can stop it by getting a Handel on certain exercises that re-educate the brain and the muscles of the body to stop sending signals of pain. I see many patients that have had old car accidents and who have also developed Chronic pain. The type of treatment plan needs to be very specific for the site or sites of Chronic pain. Please give me a call or check out my website, I have helped many with Chronic pain. . Their are also new tools available in this treatment for tendinitis or headaches also back pain and many more.

If your ever in a car accident without allot of damage to the vehicles can still harm you. Low impact accidents have been shown to cause significant damage to a person.

Acupuncture and Chiropractic a great combination for treatment of Auto Accidents.

Acupuncture is a very old therapy that was used in ancient times for pain management. The Tibetan people discovered that certain points on the body had medical value. By trial and error Acupuncture became the number 1 treatment for medical conditions in Asia. Acupuncture is still widely used all over the world and renowned for it's treatment of pain management. Chiropractic is another very strong pain management tool. By alignment of spinal bones, the Chiropractor can allow the nervous system to operate at maximum. When a person gets hurt in a car accident it can disrupt the body's potential to operate at max. Getting these two forms of treatment can be imperative for a persons recovery. If you or someone you know was hurt in an auto accident or just in pain, please call us. Check out our web site at

Scottsdale Az Auto Accidents and Chiropractic Treatments

My Chiropractic clinic is located around Miller Rd and Indian School Rd. We see many car accident patient. The most common injury is Whiplash of the neck. This can be very painful for the patient. The symptoms usually don't materialize right away. It may take several hours or days for the pain and stiffness to reach critical mass. Whiplash can cause a sever straightening of the cervical or neck spine, which left untreated can cause a life time of problems. The cervical spine can be traumatized so badly that a bone fracture could occur. The acceleration/deceleration of the neck can cause permeate neurological injury. The seat in a car acts as a catapult. Thrusting the person forward and then back. The seat belt "hopefully you happen to be wearing it" restricts this catapult movement, your head swings forward and back very fast causing whiplash. This must be treat right away and properly to get the best result, so a permenate injury don't occur. If you know anyone injured in a car accident. Please send them in ASAP.
