Sleep and Feel Better with a Cervical Pillow

Monday, July 29th, 2013

One of the most commonly overlooked aspects of health maintenance is slumber.  The average person spends approximately 100,000 hours of their life asleep1, so it is absolutely essential that steps are taken to make sure that those hours are used right.  Sleeping habits can play a major role in determining a person’s waking habits as well as overall health.

Poor sleeping habits can lead to a number of health issues.  A person who sleeps on a mattress or pillows that does not provide adequate back and neck support may experience a large variety of different health problems that stem directly from this common issue.    For instance, sleeping on a non-supportive pillow every night can cause the spine to slowly move, which can pinch a nerve, possibly causing severe chronic pain later in life.

Many chiropractors offer cervical therapeutic pillows, which are specifically designed to help people to get the best, healthiest sleep possible.  These pillows are contoured to make sure that the spine is straight and that the neck has the support that is essential for maintaining healthy sleeping habits.2

Everyone has different needs, so some people have the most success ordering a custom cervical pillow.  Visiting a chiropractor and speaking to them about the available options is an excellent step that can lead to years of better sleeping and healthier living.  These may cost a little bit more than most pillows, but the results are worth it.  Remember that most people spend at least a third of their lives lying down in bed, so why not make that significant amount of time as pleasant as possible?

These cervical pillows have other benefits as well.  Many people struggle with snoring or breathing problems while they sleep.  Cervical pillows do not just align the spine; they also keep the airways straight.  This can help people to sleep more soundly, receive necessary amounts of oxygen, and even help reduce snoring!3

It can be difficult to achieve a natural and neutral sleeping position without the right supplies.  Cervical chiropractic pillows are an investment in many years of comfortable and healthy sleeping, which will inevitably help the user to feel better in many ways.

Improve Patient Health by Offering Vitamins and Supplements

Friday, July 26th, 2013

In order to keep things diverse and interesting, many chiropractors choose to sell health-related products to their patients.  This is beneficial for many reasons.  Offering unique products and services is one of the easiest and most effective ways to gain new patients, and keep the old ones coming back in again and again.  Not everyone gets chiropractic adjustments on a regular basis, so offering other health products is a great way to give them a reason to come in more often.

It is always a good idea to offer products that help to improve a chiropractic adjustment.  Cleansing teas like Chiro-Klenz are an excellent way to compliment a chiropractic adjustment.  This tea will help to cleanse the body of toxic buildup, which will in turn make the chiropractic adjustment work better. (1)  The body is interconnected and taking a full wellness approach to patient’s health is always going to make the end results better.

Another great idea is to offer natural, safe dietary supplements.  There are plenty to choose from, and it is definitely important for you to do some research before you offer them to your patients.  There are dietary supplements out there that may not be safe, so it is important that you seek out only the ones that you truly believe in.  Some dietary supplements are for appetite control, others are for colon cleansing, and others help to improve the digestive system.

Vitamins are one of the most common supplementary products found in chiropractor’s offices.  There are certain vitamins that are designed for specific purposes.  For example, the Total Joint Complex vitamin supplement has ingredients that make it highly effective as a treatment for osteoarthritis. (2)

Fish oil is another excellent supplement to offer patients who are looking for a way to get omega-3 fatty acids, which is high in vitamins, minerals, and protein.  Studies suggest that fish oil is highly beneficial for many common diseases, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, asthma, and depression, just for starters. (3)

Echinacea is a powerful herb that has many extraordinary health benefits.  Taking Echinacea supplements on a daily basis will boost the immune system, and will also treat or prevent common illnesses like the common cold and the flu. (4)  This incredibly versatile supplement is used to treat a myriad of afflictions, including acid indigestion, pain, tonsillitis, strep throat, and much more.

There are plenty of other wonderful vitamins and supplements that a chiropractor can offer.  It is very important to take some time to learn about each one, so that you can stand behind your products.  Being able to recommend various supplements based on a patient’s specific needs will help to make you a more reliable source of information, and thus a better healer.

Laser Therapy is an Excellent Addition to a Chiropractic Office

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

Offering new and exciting products and services in chiropractic care is an easy and profitable way to expand your business and grow revenue.  Many chiropractors also find that by using new treatments, they can improve their patient outcomes.

One treatment that is quickly gaining acclaim is laser therapy.  Although lasers are still a relatively new technology, new uses for them are continually being developed.  It is documented that light in its various forms can actually affect the body’s health1, and lasers are essentially concentrated light that can be used to alleviate pain, promote healing, and reduce inflammation from injury.

The basic concept of laser therapy is kind of like adding fuel to a vehicle.  As the light source is placed against the skin, the light photons are absorbed by the mitochondria in the skin, providing cells with more energy to help the body to heal more efficiently and at a faster rate.  The end result is that the laser treatment helps to restore the body’s cell’s function and morphology2.

Although laser treatment may sound rather intimidating, the reality is that it is a painless procedure.  In fact, many professionals who practice laser therapy use it in conjunction with massage, aromatherapy, pain-reducing sprays, topical analgesics, and other pleasant natural healing and pain reducing methods.

Like any healthcare treatment, before practicing laser therapy it is important to learn how to perform this procedure properly.  You want to be sure that you are providing the best possible service to your loyal and new patients, especially if it is a new treatment you are offering.

Laser therapy is just one of many exciting new holistic treatments that are emerging these days.  If you want to remain a reliable source of information and health news, it is important that you keep up with the latest technology.  Take the time to learn about the many new products and services that you can add to a regular appointment.

For quality laser therapy products, as well as other chiropractic supplies and equipment, visit Scriphessco.com.  With their full product line, they carry all laser models from Class 1 to Class 4.  Call 800-237-5652 to learn more about hand-free laser applications.  For more than 40 years, chiropractors have shopped at Scrip Hessco to find all of their chiropractic supplies and equipment from one source at the best prices, saving time, money, and shipping.
