How To Stop Back Pain Quick

Back Pain Littleton AcupunctureAn update: In 2010, I wrote an article for my previous Littleton Acupuncture website about back pain. The stretches in the video started me on a path to doing more Yoga on a daily basis. This practice has changed my life for the second time.

Physically I feel healthier than when in my 30’s and 40’s. I sleep great because exercise helps you be able to relax. Yoga something I do not teach but recommend it daily. My health coaching clients know ‘recommend’ is a strong word for me. Everyone is intuitive. I coach people to listen better to this inner voice. If you suffer from back pain, stretches will help you.

Using Yoga and Acupuncture To Heal

You choose if you want to move into doing Yoga. When I learned it from Swami Rama over thirty-five years ago we did not’ do ‘hot’ Yoga, and many of the pop-yoga practices were not around.

Acupuncture is also important. Not just for pain but many other health problems. It also is one of the best ways to stay young and healthy. See an acupuncturist. If not me, then someone else making sure they have a L.Ac. Don’t go to a someone who got a different degree and ‘added’ acupuncture in weekend classes. This is your body and health, take care of it. Stress can also contribute to problems

The video shows basic movement that is all exercise is, moving. Whatever name you put on it, just do it. If you are not in pain, use this video to prevent problems down the road. Here is what I wrote back in September 2010.

Back then, I wrote…Recently I tweaked my back causing severe back pain. Even an acupuncturist can have pain and hurt. I took my advice especially when it came to getting acupuncture and doing some simple yet effective stretches. I made a video for my patients and friends.

Coming Back From Back Pain

Pain is no laughing matter, and it is the most common problem I see in my office. We hope you found this video on back pain exercises helpful! It can take a number of things combined to get you back to enjoying life again.Littleton acupunctureDon’t rush your recovery is the first thing. Be patient and look at your age, weight and eating habits since some foods increase inflammation. Be sure to get acupuncture and chose a stretching program that can help with stiffness and tight muscles between visits. Don’t skimp on the water it is essential for healing. The more committed you are, the higher your return to health.

In this video, you will learn that anxiety can happen when you have stiffness, aching discomfort. Solving back pain sometimes takes more that home care. You may need to work with someone to keep your body at it’s best. You’ll learn how the acupuncture meridians can be worked on at home doing simple Yoga and that your home program will promote acupuncture healing.

Warmly,

Dr. Deb

Stress Can Lead to Back Pain – A Patient Testimonial

Stress Can Lead to Back Pain – A Patient Testimonial

Some years ago, a single dad came into my office desperate; he was experiencing back pain.  He lived a life full of stress. Feeling overwhelmed he also complained about sinus problems keeping him from a solid night of sleep.

He worked all day, then came home needing to care for his children. Being in pain wasn’t part of the plan. He’d heard Littleton Acupuncture could help him. He didn’t know a cause for his pain it started as his life got complicated, could it be stress?

back pain at Littleton AcupunctureWhen we get stressed our muscles tighten. If this continues it can begin to cause spasms. All it takes then is sitting too long at the office staring at a computer all day, bending rapidly to pick up a toy, or throwing a quick football  with your child.

Then he started having sinus problems. A single dad, with sinus congestion and lumbar pain he needed help.

Acupuncture Helps Sinus Problems

There is a relationship between lower back problems and sinus problems in Chinese Medicine. It wasn’t a surprise to me that Jim’s problems had progressed to sinus problems. It’s a common problem we’ve see if lumbar pain isn’t treated.

I hope you enjoy this video. It’s old and of course done in the office, not professionally.

 

 Denver Acupuncture Is Experts In Back Pain and Sinus Problems

Sinus PainWhile Jim’s discomfort was in his lower pain many people experience upper back problems too. Types of pain vary too. It can be sharp, aching, or dull for instance. Many people have a radiating sensation down there legs. In addition he suffered from sinus problems. Acupuncture is excellent for allergies and nasal congestion. Relief of sinus problems may include affordable herbs if you live in a dry climate like Colorado

Recently I had a woman with it radiating up her back and into her shoulder blade. A Botox injection for another condition caused the problem. In this case, it led to horrific back problems. She also suffered from sinus problems something she didn’t have prior to the injection at your medical doctor.

Thank you for taking a moment to watch this video, I know the video isn’t the best. It’s the message that’s important.  Please don’t suffer pain especially in your back. In addition, if you have sinus problems think about herbal medicine and acupuncture together; we offer both. Remember surgery is permanent, try everything else first – especially Littleton acupuncture.

Let Acupuncture Help With Stress Induced Acid Reflux

Let Acupuncture Help With Stress Induced Acid Reflux

acid reflexI remember suspecting I had indigestion or more actuate silent reflux. For months, I visited several medical doctors all telling me that my runny nose, sore throat, and cough were either allergies or a chronic cold. Today I want to share another video testimonial with you from a patient who used acupuncture to reduce her stress and indigestion.

Silent Reflux

When I had silent reflux[1] it was without pain. This clinical name is Laryngopharyngeal Reflux [LPR] and the classical symptoms include the following.

  • Excessive throat clearing
  • Persistent cough
  • Hoarseness
  • A “lump” in the throat that doesn’t go away with repeated swallowing
  • A sensation of postnasal drip or excess throat mucous
  • Trouble swallowing
  • Trouble breathing
  • Sore throat

GERDMany patients suffer acid reflux or GERD. They often try something over the counter like Prilosec or visit their physician for that little purple pill, Nexium.

These drugs have harmful side-effects, and are not for long-term use. They simply cover up the problem. Most people who prefer not to take medication acupuncture can be effective against these conditions of stomach upset.

Let’s see what this patient has to say about treating her stress and digestion problems with acupuncture.

Acupuncture Testimonial

I hope you enjoyed this video testimonial. Are you wondering if you have GERD or acid reflux? Below are the common symptoms of each.

The most common symptom of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is regular heartburn, a painful, burning feeling in the middle of your chest, behind your breastbone, and in the middle of your abdomen. Not all adults with GERD[2] have heartburn.

You may know someone with GERD, who doesn’t realize they have it. Bad breath is common. Perhaps you suffer occasional nausea, pain in your chest or the upper part of your abdomen. Maybe you have problems swallowing or painful swallowing, respiratory problems and the wearing away of your teeth from the high acidity in the month.

AcupunctureSo now let’s look at acid reflux[3]. It’s so common that many people don’t realize that left untreated it can lead to Barrett’s esophagus, a precursor to cancer. Taking medications only covers up the problem and is not the answer. Try acupuncture; work with me as a health coach. We work together you and me, to find the root problems causing your problems.

Fixing Acid Reflux

Acid reflux is different from GERD because it is the backward flow of stomach acid into the esophagus. It’s a tube that connects the throat and stomach. It’s common to taste regurgitated food or sour liquid at the back of your mouth or feel a burning sensation in your chest (heartburn). GERD is the more progressive state of acid reflux.
