For immediate release:
Why do women suffer more from backpain?
You might be surprised to hear that the latest research shows that women do suffer from back pain more then men do.
Why would that be so?
It basically comes down to this... Woman may often suffer several types of pain simultaneously.
Allow me to explain.
Since women are more likely than men to experience multiple painful conditions at the same time... This could lead to greater psychological distress and greater likelihood of disability.
We found this article in the massage Middletown NY blog that quoted the Metro.co.uk news as saying:
‘Chronic pain affects a higher proportion of women than men around the world,’ said Dr Jennifer Kelly, from the Atlanta Centre for Behavioural Medicine.
‘We need to encourage women to take a more active role in their treatment and reduce the stigma and embarrassment of this problem.’
For example did you know that chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis and migraines are more prevalent in women than in men .
On top of all of that scientists tells us that a woman's pain perception will vary according to her menstrual cycle.
Pregnancy also adds to lower back pain as well as additional emotional stress that a man will never have to deal with

Is Back Surgery The Automatically The Best Answer For Chronic Back Pain Jefferson GA?
If you suffer from chronic back pain Jefferson GA, you may have been contemplating back surgery thinking that is your only option. We came across this article on the massage Middletown NY blog quoting The Star Tribune of Minneapolis. This article reports that between 1997 and 2005, back pain patients have run up back surgery bills of almost $86 billion dollars! Then why is back surgery as the only option to back pain now being questioned by insurance companies?
Notice how this was brought out ion the
“A 2008 study in the Journal of the American Medical Association, for example, noted that the increase in back-care spending occurred “without evidence of corresponding improvement” in patients’ health.”
Dr. Richard Deyo, a professor of family medicine at Oregon Health and Science University was quoted as saying: “Intense pain is not necessarily an indication for surgery,” He went on to also say: “You can’t fix everything with a knife.”
In particular it discusses the spine fusion which costs up to $80,000 per operation.
"Is there too much back surgery? Yes," said Dr. John Sherman, an orthopedic surgeon with Twin Cities Orthopedics, one of the nation's biggest practices of its kind. "But it's not as dark as [Dr.] Deyo portrays it, nor is surgery a panacea for curing all back pain."That is where your Jefferson chiropractor comes in handy. In contrast with surgery that may cost up to $80,000, chiropractics is VERY affordable.
Does it work for relieving backpain? Well see for yourself as you read what our clients have had to say.

Pfizer Inc. (PFE) has stopped all studies of the drug tanezumab for treating chronic low back pain and nerve damage caused by diabetes at the request of the FDA.
Notice what the news source says:
"The world's largest drug maker said the FDA request came after reports of side effects in osteoarthritis patients taking tanezumab and because the agency was worried about the potential for similar effects in other patients taking the drug.
Pfizer last month had announced the suspension of tanezumab studies in patients with osteoarthritis, or low back pain. At that time, Credit Suisse said experts had suggested the drug's relief was so effective it led to patients overusing their joints, causing them to require joint replacements earlier than otherwise expected."
We applaud the efforts of the FDA in halting the testing of this drug tanezumab, BEFORE too many people are hurt by the side effects.
That's why we love chiropractics. Its safe and natural without the side effects that often come with pain medications.

Cure back pain by "losing" your wallet
If you are a man and are suffering from back pain then listen closely.
What I am about to share with you is so simple, that at first you might be tempted to discount it as sound advice. But PLEASE... not yet. Not until you have read this entire post.
If you carry a wallet in your back pocket then you are contributing to, if not causing your back pain and discomfort.
It's true... Notice this quote from money watch this morning:
"A thick wallet carried in a back pocket, or a heavy purse slung over a shoulder, is a common cause of chronic back pain. (In fact, among men it actually has a clinical name: Wallet Neuropathy.)"
Who would think that could make such a difference? But why? Notice what the article goes on to say...
"Here’s what’s happening: With men, a thick wallet not only twists the spine while sitting but it also compresses the large nerve that extends through each buttock and down each leg. Sciatica is the inflammation of these nerves, and it can result in anything from mild tingling to debilitating pain in the lower back and body."
So what is the solution?
Simply put your wallet in your side pocket or a jacket pocket.
You owe it yo yourself (and your back) to give this a try. Especially in this economy where people do not have the money for expensive back surgery, costly pills and EXTRA chiropractor visits.
Give it a try and let me know what you notice!
Cole Hamels, baseball pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies, was on the disabled list due to elbow problems during the last part of the 2007 season.He had suffered from hip pain and knee pain earlier in his career but had received help in the form of Chiropractic treatments.
Cole requested the team management to provide chiropractic care for him and his team mates. In fact chiropractics became such an important part of his health maintenance that he requested chiropractic care to be provided when played other teams while traveling in other cities.
In 2008 he had a 14-10 record which helped his team get a spot in the play offs. Cole Hamels began to shine at this time and thanks chiropractics for helping him get there.
The 2008 playoffs against the Milwaukee Brewers and then Los Angeles Dodgers earned him an MVP for the League Championship Series for his 4-0 record 1.80 era ... and a spot in the World Series. He also got the MVP award 2008 World Series for his 1-0 record with a 2.77 ERA in two World Series start.
What a difference a year of chiropractic care can make!
