Dear first time patient:
Chiropractic is a specialty that focuses on treating neuromusculoskeletal diseases. Any injury or pain that was caused by improper posture, mechanics, and overuse syndrome is included in our scope of practice. In general, my practice emphasizing on active care; that means we are not only treating your symptoms but also helping you to find out the real cause(s) of your problem(s) in order to enhance the healing and prevent from recurring. Therefore, I would like you to know what you can do according to the findings. Based on the initial examination, you at least belong to one of the following categories:
qAcute stage (symptoms started within 2 weeks of injury)
v Ice should be applied on the injured area for 15 minutes of each hour session)
v Rest is crucial
a. Cut down activities and use during this period if your problems are associated with extremities
b. Lying in bed, walk, and decrease sitting are the keys for helping problems with lower back pain
v It¡¦s not an appropriate time for exercises
v Please use proper support for your problem by doctor¡¦s recommendation
v It¡¦s strongly recommended to consume supplement, OsteoCare, for better healing (Ibunex or Gluconex for topical use is also highly recommended for muscle and joint pain therapy)

Neck and back pain are the most frequent symptom among office workers. The symptoms are primary due to muscles fatigue that is attributed to poor posture and overuse. The build-up of fatigue can lead to muscle stiffness and spasm; further more poor circulation and pain as resulted. Therefore, it¡¦s recommended to leave your seat and walk or do some light exercises in every 40-50 minutes.
