Neck Pain Sufferers Most Satisfied With Chiropractic Care


Neck pain sufferers reported increased satisfaction with chiropractic care over medication, according to a recent study. In the study, researchers assessed patient satisfaction scores in those suffering from acute and subacute neck pain. Methods of care included chiropractic care, specifically spinal manipulation, home exercise and advice care, and prescription medication. While both chiropractic care and home exercise and advice care were associated with more satisfaction with the information provided versus medication, individuals receiving chiropractic care were the most satisfied with their general care received compared to the two other groups. If you’re suffering from neck pain and need some satisfaction, call your local doctor of chiropractic today for a no obligation evaluation!

Colon Cancer On The Rise In Young Adults


Colon and rectal cancers are increasing among younger adults, according to new research. At the same time, incidents of colon and rectal cancers in those over 50 years of age have been decreasing slightly. Researchers aren’t sure why rates are increasing among young adults, but attribute the decrease in those older adults to the increase in screening and removal of suspicious growths before they’re able to turn malignant. Should things continue on their current path, researchers believe colon and rectal cancer cases in those aged 20 to 34 years could come close to doubling in the next 15 years. For 35 to 49 year olds, those rates could increase by 28 to 46 percent.

Drink Water, Prevent Kidney Stones


New guidelines released from the American College of Physicians indicate that preventing kidney stones may be as simple as drinking more water.  Experts suggest drinking enough fluids to generate two liters of urine daily in order to keep kidney stones at bay. Kidney stones are formed from solid crystals in the urine and increasing the consumption of water dilutes the solids and decreases their abilities to form into stones. It should be noted that drinking any fluids does not generate the same benefits of drinking water alone. Certain fluids such as sodas, especially those containing phosphoric acid, can actually increase the formation of kidney stones. Stick with water and consume two to three liters daily with the goal of generating 2 liters of clear urine daily. If the urine is yellow, you're likely not consuming enough fluids.
