Ear Infections

ear

Ear Infections or Otitis media is an inner ear infection generally caused from a blockage of the Eustachian tubes. The Eustachian Tube allows equalized pressure on the eardrum and allows fluid to drain away from the inner ear. When the Eustachian tube is blocked, fluid builds up and causes an infection. The transverse process, bones sticking out from the sides of a vertebrae, run next to the Eustachian tubes at C1, the first Cervical vertebrae. When a vertebra is misaligned or subluxated, swollen tissue will result causing the Eustachian tubes to block. By removing the subluxations at C1 and C2 you can reduce the tissue swelling around the Eustachian Tubes and allow the inner ear to drain, clearing the infection within a couple days in many cases.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

carpal

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is the compression of the median nerve at the wrist, which may result in numbness, tingling, weakness, or muscle atrophy in the hand and fingers. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is common in people who perform repetitive motions of the hand and wrist, such as typing. When the wrist is poorly positioned, there isn’t enough space for the median nerve to travel to the hand. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by pressure exerted on the median nerve at the point where it passes through the wrist. The median nerve supplies sensation to the thumb-side of the ring finger. It also supplies movement to part of the hand. The nerve enters the hand between the wrist bones (called the carpal bones) and the tough membrane that holds the bones together (the transverse carpal ligament). This space is called the carpal tunnel. Since the passageway is rigid, any swelling in this area can cause compression of the nerve (this is also called entrapment of the nerve).

Bursitis

bursitis

Bursitis is the Inflammation of the fluid-filled sac (bursa) that lies between a tendon and skin, or between a tendon and bone. This condition may be acute or chronic. Bursae are fluid-filled cavities near joints where tendons or muscles pass over bony projections. They assist movement and reduce friction between moving parts. Bursitis can be caused by chronic overuse, trauma, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, or infection. Sometimes the cause cannot be determined. Bursitis commonly occurs in the shoulder, knee, elbow, and hip. Other areas that may be affected include the Achilles tendon and the foot. Isn’t it time you tried chiropractic care for you and your family? If you are experiencing any of the common symptoms below, please call our office now to schedule an appointment.

Symptoms

Joint Pain and Tenderness

Swelling

Warmth over the Affected Joint

Limited Range of Motion

Asthma

asthma

Asthma can be defined as a reversible narrowing of the large and small airways due to spasm of the bronchial smooth muscle, inflammation of the bronchial mucosa, and production of mucus. Asthmatic attacks can be brought on by stress, exercise, and viral respiratory infections. Allergens such as pollen, mold, dust and animal danders can also increase the risk of asthmatic episodes. One study has shown a decrease in Bronchiodialator use by 20% with chiropractic care, and decreased the severity of the reactions by 39%. Even better, after a year follow up, the improvements maintained. Isn’t it time you tried chiropractic care for you and your family?

Autism Information

WHAT’S NEW WITH AUTISM TREATMENTS

Dr. Chris has completed training in San Diego, CA and Chicago, IL. This is considered a medical doctor’s continuing education seminar. Dr. Chris has added even more information and services for the recovery of autism at Hayes Family Chiropractic. Fridays will be reserved for the DAN! practitioner protocol counciling in the recovery of autism.

We have added the Kirkman family product lines to aid in the nutritional needs of our families. We also can order other products as we are able to. Currently, we carry about 100 different supplements, including refrigerated probiotics and other speciality items. We also have considered adding space on to the clinic in the very near future, thus enabling us to open the office to the recovery of the autistic children even more days throughout the week.

Thanks for reading this update, and let us know what you think. We hope to have the premiere treatment facility in Northwest Indiana that not only the parents love, but also that the kids can enjoy.

Yours in Health and Recovery,

Dr. Chris Hayes,DC,DAN! practitioner

ATTENTION: PARENTS OF AUTISTIC CHILDREN!!!

I have two different things going on with the recovery process for autistic children: I use the DAN! protocol for biomedical treatments and interventions, and I also use a technique that I have developed that uses chiropractic and acupuncture points with a laser, the Marco red-tongue technique. The biomed you may have some knowledge of, the other, Marco red-tongue technique uses a gentle, chiropractic adjustment to the first vertebra, and an acupuncture laser, set to a specific frequency, to help increase the child’s IQ and verbal abilities.
Ultimately, it is your decision on how to better help your child and get the best care for them. Whether we use diet/nutrition/chiropractic/whatever, there are many choices to look at and consider. It is the best thing in the world to always try something for a true trial period, rather than not do anything and complain about it, and life afterwards.
I hope this helps in giving some explanation. Get back to me/better yet call the office to get scheduled, (727) 736-1000.
Yours in Health and Recovery,

Dr. Chris Hayes, DC, DAN! practitioner
