Dad, health is Important. Full stop.

Father’s Day is just around the corner and if there’s anything that dads dislike more than being overshadowed by the ever-popular Mother’s Day, it’s talking about the dreaded “H word” – Heath! By now, we all should know that eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly and getting periodic medical checkups can help extend a person’s life. And who doesn’t want an extended life? Well…dads, apparently.

According to a survey by Cleveland Clinic, the majority of men questioned did not want to pay the doctor a visit and those who did only did so out of fear of a serious illness. So major medical emergency or nothing? This is like owning a valuable vehicle and ignoring all the warning signs until one day, BAM, the engine explodes. And I’m sure you’ve heard all the excuses: I don’t have the time; I have a phobia about doctors and their probing instruments; I once knew a guy who never went to the doctor and was strong as an ox. Nope. Health is important. Full stop.

Looking at a list of top causes of death in men in the U.S. from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), you’ll see conditions such as heart disease, cancer (prostate cancer in particular), stroke and many others. While not every illness is completely avoidable, prevention practices and early detection have been proven to actually save lives. For instance, under the guidance of a licensed physical therapist, exercise and strength training can greatly reduce the risk and effects from cardiovascular disease through the implementation of a controlled and efficient schedule. In fact, physical therapy has been a useful tool in combatting many ailments by preventing and managing several health conditions before they advance to more life-threatening stages.

Another statistic from the Cleveland Clinic survey found that 19% of men went to the doctor merely to stop their loved ones from pestering them about the issue. In this case, nagging the dads in your lives (including husbands, grandpas, uncles, and fathers-in-law) about taking care of their health would be a much better gift than a printed mug or t-shirt if it meant having them around for a longer time and perhaps, even saving their lives. So don’t be afraid to recommend the intervention of physical therapy for a happier Father’s Day this year!

Can A Chiropractor Help My Migraine?

Headaches are one of the most common forms of pain and discomfort that people deal with on a daily basis.  They affect more than 11 million adults in the United States every year. They also cost employers money due to lost productivity because of absenteeism.  Reports show that 156 million full-time workdays are lost each year due to headaches. As a result they account for a large part of the economic cost for Americans.   These headaches generate over 18 million office visits annually which leads to pricey health care costs. They are also the number one reason for the use of over-the counter analgesic medications.  But these drugs only reduce the intensity of headaches. Most peoples are currently looking for a natural method that would both reduce and eliminate the cause of this pain.

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 damage, and you probably won’t arrive at your destination on time.

Nonetheless, you try to gather yourself and determine what you should do first, second and third.

The Doctors at Goldson are urging Mothers to #JustSayNoToDrugs

Moms, have you noticed the conversations happening all-across the country concerning doctors and prescription drugs? Well, mothers in my network are beginning to realize the long-term dangers of taking both prescribed and over-the-counter drugs. As the primary caretakers of most homes, mothers are becoming more conscious of the advantages of using natural remedies to keep their households healthy. The good news is Goldson Spine Rehabilitation Center offers treatment that includes physical therapy, chiropractic care, acupuncture and counseling options. If you consider the treatment options above, you will find it easier to join our campaign to #JustSayNoToDrugs.

Let’s explore the benefits of physical therapy. When I think of physical therapy, I am reminded of my dog, Charlie. Every morning when Charlie wakes up, he does not just roll out of bed like we do, but rather, he stretches out of his doggy bed. His stretch is a series of movements where he elongates his body from head to paw, dropping and arching his body in the middle, rotating his neck and wiggling his paw-toes. His dedication to self-medicating through stretching and physical therapy is not only admirable but a teachable moment.

People everywhere are beginning to realize the long-term dangers of taking both over-the-counter and prescription drugs. The good news is Goldson Spine Rehabilitation Center offers holistic treatment that includes physical therapy, chiropractic care, acupuncture and counseling options. When used correctly and consistently, you will find far less reasons to pop a pill or refill a prescription.
