Portland Chiropractor and Nutritionist | Nuts and Cholesterol

There’s been some research suggesting that consuming nuts can lower cholesterol. As many of you know, I am no a big fan of demonizing cholesterol; this strategy doesn’t seem to but down cardiovascular related deaths and can be quite miserable for patients. That being said, there are situations where paying close attention to cholesterol levels is necessary. I recommend a VAP Test to look at your cholesterol fractions. There is more to cholesterol than LDL, HDL, and Triglycerides.

In fact, a recent study showed that consuming nuts helps to lower cholesterol, especially LDL-C (an LDL fraction) and especially in those with low body mass indexes. So, the take home is, natural ways to lower your cholesterol and have a healthy lipid profile is to lose weight, exercise and eat healthy fats like those found in nuts and seeds.

Reference:

Portland Chiropractor | Antidepressants, Muscle Relaxers and More…. For Tension Headaches?

OK, this entry is more of a rant than anything else but really? Why would anyone think going on a variety of drugs with their own set of side effects to take care of tension headaches? It’s pretty easy to take care of them manually with chiropractic, Graston therapy, Kinesiotape, soft tissue therapies and cold laser.

Here’s an article that sheds a little light on the ineffectiveness of these drugs to prophylactically take care of tension headaches:

Lack of benefit for prophylactic drugs of tension-type headache in adults: a systematic review.

Portland Chiropractor | Shin Splints, Running and Creatine

Do you have shin splints? Do you run AND take a creatine supplementation? Well, here’s a link to an article that found a relationship to anterior compartment problems (like shin splints), running and creatine.

The Effects of Creatine Dietary Supplementation on Anterior Compartment Pressure in the Lower Leg During Rest and Following Exercise

Don’t get me wrong, this is not an anti-creatine blog entry. I recommend creatine to quite a few of my patients to help them build muscle and anaerobic endurance. If you want to know more, contact me.

Portland Chiropractor | Low Back Pain? 1.Mobility 2.Stability 3.Dynamic Function

OK, I have been busy in my SE Portland chiropractic, nutrition and function movement clinic, Optimum Function, in addition, we have recently added a puppy into our already animal-full family and I have taken up Unicycling (click for more info). I have been wanting to create some videos showing how some of you out there can do some simple tests to see if your low back, hip, knee, or ankle/foot pain is coming from a mobility issue (things aren’t moving correctly), a stability issue (the right muscles aren’t firing at the right time) or tissue damage (something is injured and needs to heal).

Here is part 1 of my lower quadrant assessment video:

Here’s part 2:

After that, I decided to post a video for those of you who had primary stability issues, not mobility issues or tissue damage (you’ll have to see someone for those…. hint… come on in and I’ll help). These lower quadrant stability exercises are designed to get your glute muscles firing and increase their endurance so you can move on to more dynamic stability exercises that get you ready to do what you want to do pain free.

Here’s part 1 of that series:

Here’s Part 2:

And finally, Part 3:

Remember, if you have any questions or are not sure if these exercises are for you, contact me, I can help.

Portland Chiropractor | Cold Laser (Low-Level Laser) Good For Neck Pain

A recent review article came out suggesting that cold laser, AKA low-level laser therapy is beneficial for decreasing acute neck pain and decreasing chronic neck pain for up to 22 weeks after the treatment!

I have been using col laser in my SE Portland chiropractic and nutrition practice for 3 years now with astounding results, the least of which is decreasing pain.

Here’s a link to the citation: Low-level laser therapy for neck pain
