- Hi, Dr. Heather here
from Wellspring Chiropractic Lifestyle Center.
Today, we are talking about low back pain
and I want to share with you some of the strategies
we use right here in the office with folks that come in.
One thing we want to do is we want to make sure
that the tissues that are involved in the injury
are able to heal up.
So, we coach people on eating an anti-inflammatory diet
so they don't keep feeding the fire of inflammation
that's in there.
And then, there are also some nutritional supplements
that we find are very useful to address the inflammation
and also help the connective tissue rebuild,
the tissue that's been damaged.
So, what I like to use is tumeric
is one of my favorite products and the company
Standard Process makes an incredible tumeric.
It's called Tumeric Forte
and it's actually a blend of tumeric
that is infused into fenugreek.
And that process actually makes it so that the tumeric
is 26 times more absorbable than regular dietary tumeric.
So if you're trying to get tumeric into your body
by putting it in as a spice in your food
or adding it to smoothies,
that's actually not very absorbable
but in this form that is infused into the fenugreek,
it's highly absorbable.
So it's one of the best-selling products of this company
because it's so effective.
I love using the tumeric.
I also find that the omega-3 oils
are very important, so the fish oils.
So I always wanna make sure that we are using those
effectively because that's what's going
to help to drop inflammation
and if you have low back injuries,
if you have whether it's a chronic situation
or an acute situation,
then we wanna make sure we're addressing those.
And then of course we want to talk about
rebuilding the tissues.
So the products that I like for this
are Ligaplex One and Ligaplex Two
and they're for different types of low back injuries.
So I'm always going to test to see if it's more
of a disk type of a concern, I'll use one.
If it's more of a sacroiliac or a physette concern,
then I'll use another one.
But it literally is providing the building blocks
for that tissue so it can rebuild and get stronger
if it's been injured or damaged.
So those are the things that I like to use
to support the progress of the patients that I see
and it really allows us to get our best results with folks.
If you're curious on whether or not we can help you,
there's actually a link below you can click on
which is our new patient special
for low back pain concerns.
And you're welcome to click on that link
and if you do, then I look forward to meeting you.
