Many people often ignore nutritional diet as one of the most important factors responsible for the proper functioning of body. Not only does it play an integral role in maintaining good health, it also prevents from various health complications such as indigestion, gas, bloating, reflux, fatigue, loss of sleep etc.

According to chiropractors at Corrective Chiropractic and Wellness, nutritional diet can offer many benefits to individual. Some of which are:

  • Energy: Non-nutritious foods result in fluctuations in energy levels causing an individual to feel tired more frequently.  A good nutritional diet maintains these energy levels throughout the day and provides the vitality to lead a healthy life.
  • Bones:  Nutritional diet rich in Calcium, Vitamin D, Vitamin K, play a pivotal role in developing and maintain the bone health. Milk and other dairy products are excellent source of these nutrients and act as healing as well as long-term strengthening agents for bones.
  • Heart: We suggest avoiding the foods containing high content of cholesterol and saturated fats that may increase the risk of heart diseases.  Consuming nutrients rich healthy diet ensures the proper functioning of heart for now and for years to come.
  • Weight: Individuals with overweight and underweight are more likely to develop chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, osteoarthritis, etc. A good nutritious diet helps an individual stay at a weight that is right for him/her.

We, at Corrective Chiropractic and Wellness, understand the importance of nutrition and provide nutritional counseling to the people of all ages in Harker Heights and Killeen areas of Texas.

Our nutritionists use the Nutrition Response Testing technique also called muscle testing for detecting the nutritional deficiencies and imbalances in an individual. It is a unique non invasive method which is performed using acupressure points in conjunction with neurological reflexes to determine the weaknesses in the body and the presence of stressors. The stressors can be any factor from food sensitivities to scars or immune challenges that may be averting the body from healing. Based on the result of Nutrition Response Testing, our nutritionists recommend the dietary adaptation and whole food nutritional supplements to reinstate the balanced functioning of the body.

Killeen Chiropractor For Jaw Pain

by Administrator 4. October 2013 06:38

The jaw joint is highly prone to pain, considering that it is the most active joint in the body, moving up to 2,000 times a day, with activities like talking, chewing, swallowing, and yawning. Jaw pain, often referred to as TMJ (Tempro-Mandibular Joint Dysfunction Syndrome) is often associated with symptoms like headaches, ringing in the ears, shoulder pain, upper back pain, vision problems, and balance problems. Corrective Chiropractic & Wellness clinic, located in Harker Heights, serving the Greater Killeen area, adopts various chiropractic treatment options to treat jaw pain, which is caused by misalignment in the jaw and/ or the neck.

Chiropractors will first perform a detailed medical evaluation of your condition to determine the cause of jaw pain, and most appropriate treatment plan for you. The most common causes of jaw pain are a severe blow to the jaw, such as that from a sports injury, high emotional stress, poor diet and lifestyle, and teeth

grinding. The jaw pain typically arises from the improper working of the jaw muscles, which in turn results in improper muscle and nerve firing. The treatment adopted at Corrective Chiropractic & Wellness clinic is a conjunction of chiropractic techniques and lifestyle modifications which aim at eliminating the root cause of the disorder.

This comprehensive care plan for jaw pain consists of the following treatment options:

  • Gentle adjustments in the jaw and neck area to reduce nerve irritation and improve function
  • Myofascial manipulation to reduce muscle spasm
  • Cold laser therapy or ultrasound therapy to reduce pain and inflammation
  • Corrective exercises and nutritional modifications to enhance joint recovery
  • Self help and lifestyle changes to prevent future recurrence of the condition by minimizing stress on the jaw joint. Depending on your condition, sleeping with an orthopedic pillow can help to relieve pain in the surrounding regions.

If you are experiencing jaw pain, it is important to set up a prompt appointment with our chiropractor, since delaying treatment can damage the health of the teeth and jaw joint, leading to biomechanical problems and improper chewing. You can set up an appointment with Dr. Jason Degenhardt, D.C. or Dr Shane Isdale, D.C., both of whom are dedicated to giving back to the Greater Killeen community through the latest chiropractic techniques for corrective, rehabilitative, and wellness care.  You can contact us online or via phone at (254) 698-1600.
