Dr. Goldson’s Pain Cream now with Turmeric

Camphor and menthol are natural compounds that have been used for centuries by many different cultures due to their amazing healing powers. Camphor is taken from the Cinnamomum camphora tree and Menthol comes from mint plants, and together, they create a potent combination.

Menthol produces a calming effect as it works to alleviate discomfort by intercepting signals sent to the brain and altering the body’s perception of pain. It also functions as a counterirritant agent whereby minor irritation is generated in one area of the body in order to lessen irritation in another area. [Learn more at www.DrGoldson.com]

Camphor has many soothing and suppressive properties, making it ideal for reducing swelling, relieving muscle spasms, and treating nerve pain. When applied, it creates a cool sensation on the skin owed to the stimulation of sensory nerves that diminish pain and irritation. Camphor has been sampled in the development of several drugs and there is research to suggest that it can be a successful form of treatment for certain major diseases.

It’s no wonder these natural components have been utilized in traditional and modern medicine for ages as there seems to be no end to their therapeutic advantages. In today’s society, Camphor and Menthol can be found in topical analgesics, arthritis medication and many other products, providing much-needed aid to pain-stricken individuals.

Dr. Goldson’s Spine Joint and Muscle Cream taps into the powers of both substances and now, the beloved formula has been improved to include turmeric. Turmeric is a popular additive in Indian and Caribbean cuisine but its value extends way beyond flavor. One of its main ingredients is curcumin which possesses unbelievable health benefits for the brain—shown to prevent Alzheimer’s disease for instance—as well as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory capabilities.

The new Dr. Goldson’s Spine Joint and Muscle Cream harnesses the benefits of Menthol, Camphor, Methyl Salicylate Technology and Turmeric to deliver more effectual, helpful, and penetrative relief. It targets even the most nagging pain that can sting, needle and pester joints and muscles throughout the day. Critical areas such as the neck, back, shoulders, knees and ankles can finally get the ease they deserve.

No prescription is required to start feeling the restorative effects of this organic-based cream. And you don’t have to live in pain for another minute. Simply visit http://www.drgoldson.com and order yours today.

From the Ground Up!

Goldson Spine North Lauderdale welcomes custom orthotic technology.

A reasonably active person will walk an average of 110,000 miles throughout their lifetime. That’s the equivalent of running the New York City Marathon about 4,200 times. The truth is, our feet provide tremendous support day in and day out, taking us where we want to go and acting as a natural shock absorber in every step. Unfortunately, we don’t fully appreciate the hard work they do.

Given the daily stresses on our feet, it’s no surprise that roughly 80% of adults in the U.S. have foot complaints. Poor foot health can actually be an indicator of bad overall health and can even be a sign of serious underlying issues. Therefore, it’s important to analyze and understand your feet.

Each human foot has 26 bones, 33 joints, 19 muscles, and over a hundred tendons and ligaments. Additionally, the arches in the foot lend support to essential joints in the body, such as the ankles, knees, hips, and the spine. Two of the most common foot problems are plantar fasciitis and heel spurs. The terms are often used together, but they are not interchangeable. Plantar fasciitis is mainly caused by inflammation of the connective tissue that spans the length of the foot—from the heel to the toes, while heel spurs are associated with pain and soreness originating from the heel bone—the back of the foot. However, if left untreated, plantar fasciitis can result in heel spurs.

Anybody can suffer from these ailments, though some categories of people are more at risk than others. For instance, women are more prone to develop plantar fasciitis than men, as well as those who stay on their feet for extended periods. Other major contributing factors include improper or ill-fitting footwear and excessive weight gain.

These disorders can be very agonizing and can disrupt a person’s daily lifestyle as activities like walking or standing become difficult due to discomfort in various areas of the foot. Thankfully, there is a proven method of treatment. Orthotics have been shown to supplement the foot’s arches, absorb ground shock, reduce the strain on other joints, and help circumvent future injuries. Further, they can change the weight distribution in your stance and improve how the musculoskeletal system operates.

Goldson Spine Rehabilitation Center is thrilled to announce the arrival of the Foot Levelers 3D scanner at our North Lauderdale location. This newly installed piece of technology will examine you from the ground up; identifying issues with imbalance, points of abnormal pressure, misalignments in the body, and ultimately creates a shoe insert tailored to the specific needs of each patient.

Over-the-counter insoles have its benefits but are mass produced and don’t deliver the kind of specialized care your feet crave. Although many people experience the same foot conditions, it doesn’t mean every foot is the same, and it certainly doesn’t mean everybody experiences pain in the same manner. So, your orthotics should be just as unique as you are.

Stop doing your feet a disservice. Come to the Goldson Spine North Lauderdale office today for your FREE foot scan and get yourself fitted with a custom-made orthotic from the Foot Levelers 3D scanner. It’ll change the way you view your feet and improve your general well-being.

Your feet will thank you!

Foods That Fight Inflammation

For many years conditions such as asthma and arthritis have been associated with inflammation. But in today’s society, where long-term illnesses have become prevalent, other conditions like cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and diabetes have also been linked to chronic inflammation.

WHAT IS INFLAMMATION?

Inflammation is the body’s way of healing, repairing and protecting itself. For instance, when we get a scrape or cut inflammation is the first line of defense in helping to stop the bleeding. However, this is meant to be a short-term response. The problem occurs when inflammation and the effects of inflammation persist.

WHAT SHOULD YOU KNOW ABOUT CHRONIC INFLAMMATION?

A poor diet, lack of physical activity and excessive weight gain can all be major contributors to chronic inflammation, which can lead to disorders of the heart and joints as well as cancers of the lung and digestive tract.

Additionally, inflammation can result in skin conditions, affect oral health and even interfere with getting a good night’s sleep. Thus, nutrition and exercise become extremely vital in rectifying and curbing the damage that can be brought about by persistent or chronic inflammation.

At Goldson Spine Rehabilitation Center, we take an all-natural approach to treatment and therapy. We believe that with the right guidance and management, the human body can work wonders. Therefore, please consider the below information to improve your wellbeing and prevent the onset of debilitating diseases.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

  1. Incorporate foods that combat inflammation such as those rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids (Omega-3s and Omega-6s) to lessen the likelihood of developing certain diseases, support a strong immune system and help regulate central bodily functions.

These include:

  • Beans e.g. black beans and lentils.
  • Fish e.g. wild Alaskan salmon,sardines and tuna.
  • Fruits e.g. apples, blueberries, oranges, plums and strawberries.
  • Nuts e.g. walnuts, peanuts and almonds.
  • Seeds e.g. flaxseed, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds.
  • Vegetables e.g. beets, broccoli, kale, spinach and squashes.
  1. Cut back on inflammatory-causing foods. Check out our previous post titled “3 Foods that cause Inflammation” for more details on ridding your diet of common but harmful items that create serious health issues.
  2. Remember that balance also plays a key role. Making smart meal choices, staying active and looking after your body go a long way in transforming your life for the better.

Injured in an Accident, Deal With Your Injuries FIRST!

Injured in an Accident, Deal With Your Injuries FIRST!

Why Goldson Spine Rehabilitation Center should be your first stop!

Doing marketing for Goldson Spine, I have come to learn that nothing ruins a person’s day like being involved in an automobile accident. All of a sudden, you are experiencing pain, you may have car or some sort of property damage, and you probably will no longer arrive at your destination at the originally expected time. Your mind is cloudy with thoughts of money loss, missed appointments and the emotional stress associated with it all. Nonetheless, you try to gather yourself and determine what you should do first, second and third.

I know what you should do FIRST, but let’s be honest one of those upbeat radio jingles play in your head and before you know it, you considering getting treatment and legal advice from strangers. Family, please avoid the trap and consider doctors who have been serving our community for the past quarter century, providing quality medical care, creating jobs and opportunities, all while inspiring minorities that they too can be excellent and achieve unimaginable levels of success. To help us all make better decisions, here is some standard information.

AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT, NOW WHAT CHECKLIST

  1. Call 911
  2. Exchange driver information
  3. Take photos and videos
  4. Look for witnesses
  5. Record your own statement
  6. Get a police report
  7. Accept emergency medical care
  8. Follow up with private medical care of your choice
  9. Contact the driver’s insurance company
  10. Meet with a personal injury attorney. Not sure where to begin? Take a look at this website to learn more about Mark Rees personal injury lawyer

In real life (medical) treatment for our injuries settles to the bottom of the list, shifts to the ‘maybe’ list and can often end up on the ‘never’ list. In fact, the average person will consult with an attorney after an accident before consulting a doctor to seek treatment for their injuries. Selecting a doctor first is the only way to ensure that you treated like a patient not another number. In this season, as we all move towards being more intentional with our support, keep this list handy, and make Goldson Spine your treatment facility of choice. You will be glad you did. Tell our receptionist, I recommended you. Simply call to (866) Goldson
To get your life back in order and recover financial losses, however, you will need to seek the help of an experienced lawyer. If you’re in the Albuquerque area, you may want to talk to Parnall Law Firm Personal Injury Attorneys.

SELECTING A TRUSTWORTHY CHIROPRACTOR IS ONLY ONE REVIEW AWAY

Over the years, the internet has emerged as a huge driving force for customer empowerment. Through online reviews, people can give honest evaluations about a product or service to educate and warn the public. Recent studies show that a large percentage of consumers form strong opinions based on reviews alone, which is a testament to the power of shared feedback.

In this day and age, with so many competing businesses out there, reviews from fellow patrons not only save you time and money but can save you from a horrible encounter. It makes sense then that when choosing the right chiropractor, online reviews play a pivotal role in determining who can be trusted.

Chiropractic care centers are ensuring the body’s nervous system flows the way it’s supposed to. The nervous system consists of the spinal cord, brain and network of nerves which harmoniously work together to control essential bodily functions that can be thrown out of whack by minor as well as severe conditions. Injuries from playing sports, injuries arising out of a car accident, disorders such as scoliosis can all be effectively and holistically treated by a chiropractor. Additionally, treatment options are available to help with pre and post pregnancy ailments. This is especially beneficial for expectant parents who want a remedy that does not involve potentially harmful medication or surgical procedures.

Goldson Spine Rehabilitation Center has provided health and wellness services, including chiropractic therapy, for over twenty years. We have four locations across the South Florida region and each clinic offers first-rate equipment, comfortable accommodation and knowledgeable staff—features we believe make a significant impact on the client’s overall experience. Happily, we have seen countless positive Google reviews that reflect the outstanding commitment of our Goldson team as we continue to deliver the best possible care to our many treasured customers.

3 Foods that cause Inflammation

Christmas is coming so two things are probably weighing heavily on everybody’s minds: gifts and food! And although overindulgence is par for the course, there are some things to be mindful of during the holidays, for example, inflammatory foods. Inflammation is not a completely horrible concept as it is the body’s natural response to foreign particles (e.g. pollen), stress and infection. However, when inflammation is persistent it becomes problematic. Chronic inflammation has been connected to conditions such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and cancer.
At Goldson Spine Rehabilitation Center, we believe in a holistic approach to treatment. Our experienced medical practitioners, including licensed physical therapists and chiropractors, work with patients to achieve optimal physical performance, prevent the development of certain ailments and to heal the body without invasive surgical procedures through manual manipulation of the musculoskeletal structure.
At Goldson Spine, we also believe in the power of knowledge, therefore please see the below three foods or ingredients that cause inflammation in order to be more well-informed and to be more prepared for the barrage of drinks and dishes you’ll no doubt be bombarded with this Christmas season.
1. Sugar
I know! This one is a gut punch. Sugar is found in just about everything tasty and desirable in the world. Soda, chocolate, cookies, desserts…you name it. As well as other items that you may not expect like nutrition bars, salad dressing and flavored yogurt. Too much sugar can be a real chore for almost every part of the body to handle. It can have a negative effect on a person’s mood, hormone levels and amplifies the chance of inflammation, which can worsen joint pain. It should be noted that the physical therapy and chiropractic care offered at Goldson Spine help alleviate painful joints, muscle strains, backaches and much more along with the use of Dr. Goldson’s Spine Joint Muscle Pain Cream (which is a naturally formulated product).
2. Processed Meats
You may know processed meats as “mystery meats” due to their mysterious sources. They include bacon, hot dogs, deli meats and sausage. These meats are preserved through certain cooking methods and are infused with chemicals and preservatives that promote inflammatory changes which have been linked to the development of high blood pressure, heart-related diseases, stomach and colon cancer.
3. Alcohol
Enjoying a glass of red wine can actually have heart-healthy benefits. That’s because the antioxidants found in wine can reduce the possibility of heart disease. But drinking excessive amounts of alcohol can have quite the opposite and unfavorable result. When alcohol is broken down in our bodies, harmful after-effects are produced which lead to organ damage, particularly damage to the liver.
Of course, moderation is the way to go. Be mindful of the above-mentioned food items and others that may encourage inflammation. Establishing a balanced diet and a steady exercise routine can make a significant difference, especially for those suffering from inflammatory-related illnesses.

Chiropractic to Combat the Opioid Crisis

Physical Therapy and Chiropractic Care better than Opioids?

The opioid crisis has become a real public health problem in the United States. Research shows that on a daily basis almost 100 people overdose and die from opioid use. The drug is commonly linked to harsh, illegal substances like heroin but the truth is there are many legal, doctor-recommended medicines classified as opioids. For example, Vicodin, OxyContin, Percocet and Avinza.

The drug helps to alleviate pain by acting on the nervous system, including the spinal cord and brain. Further, it affects the part of the brain that regulates human emotion which additionally works to suppress discomfort. On a chemical level, opioids cause a sense of euphoria (or high), making it extremely addictive, especially when prescribed for prolonged periods as patients can develop dependency and withdrawal issues. This fact is made worse by studies which show that opioids are not particularly effective in the long-term and the subsequent side-effects can overshadow any actual benefits.

Therefore, with all the negative consequences, it’s no surprise that many people are turning to natural and holistic medicine as significant forms of treatment.

Physical therapy and chiropractic care are both natural options that aid in pain relief, most notably to the back, neck, shoulders, joints and muscles. Practitioners in these fields adopt a very hands-on approach to reconditioning the body and promoting good health. When used together, they successfully contribute to the rehabilitation and reparation process.

Physical therapists treat ailments or injuries with an exercise regimen, heat stimuli, massage sessions and other activities. The objective is to enhance mobility and strengthen muscles over time, which can be maintained even after therapy has ended. Whereas, chiropractors zone in on the musculoskeletal system and disorders related to the spine. They provide manual alignments to afflicted regions, the results of the which can be heard and felt immediately, for instance, a person can hear a crack when tension is released from the joints.

Goldson Spine has dedicated licensed physical therapists and chiropractors who can offer effective treatment for pain, injuries and diseases without surgical procedures or prescription medication like opioid painkillers. Our practitioners work with you and your body to achieve optimal performance, improve well-being and overall quality of life.
