Video Transcript

Dr. Mark S. Sielski: 

The Activator is a hand-held instrument. A lot of the patients call it like a clicker, all right? What it does is it's a very light force because it's high speed, and you're able to really get into areas that might be a little bit tougher with other techniques. You can get in there, and you can adjust the specific areas of the spine. For some patients, they need that light touch. You still get the same outcome, but it's just a different approach.

Dr. Mark S. Sielski: 

The pro adjuster is a computerized instrument where it does a detailed analysis using piezoelectric cells that are in the ends of the instrument, and we can analyze the spine and find different areas where there are restrictions or where there's a lot of muscle tension, and then we can go in and use the same instrument to adjust that specific area.

Dr. Stephen Levine: 

The first question we have is, is this patient going to respond? And we have to take in all the information we get from our examination. We have a reasonable degree of certainty that if we accept you as a patient, you're going to get your desired results. Remember, the first visit here determines, do you belong here or not. Maybe there's another specialty that would come into play to help you with your problem. So, if a patient doesn't respond in a reasonable time frame, that's why we do periodic re-evaluations. When we do the thermal scan in the beginning to find out where the hot spots are, we're going to redo that again in 30 days. If it's not changing, or getting better on our hard core documentation and testing ... Guess what? We're not going to continue treating. We're going to find out what the problem is, where it is, and maybe what specialty should come into play.

Maybe we need a dentist, maybe it's a specialized TMJ issue. Maybe there is a visual problem, and we have to get an eye doctor involved. Maybe there is a neurological problem. Maybe if we see something on X-ray, which we've done many times, we'll send out for an MRI to get more clarity of what the problem is, and now we have knowledge, because knowledge is power, and we can help direct you get the fastest results, in the shortest amount of time, with the least amount of specialties.

Dr. Mark S. Sielski: 

We look for the cause and most other specialties do not. They treat symptoms and that's not what we to do here. We find the cause of what's going on and when you remove the cause, most of the time you're gonna get rid of the symptoms. And once the symptoms are gone, then we can go for stability and then once the stability...when we get stability, then we go for maintenance.

Video Transcript

Dr. Stephen Levine: 

Coming to this office, South Orange Chiropractic Center, we look for the most natural and efficient and effective form of care to help relieve a patient's symptoms. One of the key distinctions we make is: Are we treating the pain, or are we treating the problem? Many patients come to us that have had their pain treated, head pain, back pain, neck pain and they're chasing it with the chemistry. They're putting drugs into the body. If this drug doesn't work, try this drug. If this doesn't work, try this one.

Well, here, we want to find the cause. If we can't find the cause, we're not going to start treatment. So, the object of our first visit is always does the patient belong here? If you do, we tell you. If not, we're not going to waste your time or our time. But the key is finding the cause of the problem. Once we treat the cause, the symptoms go away.

Video Transcript

Dr. Mark Roczey:

Well, shoulder pain is extremely common these days. A lot of times, patients are going to have pain all over the shoulders. There's various conditions. It can show up in the front of the shoulder, the side of the shoulder, or back of the shoulder, and all regions can be diagnosed differently. But, most commonly, what we find is a bursitis or a frozen shoulder. Those are the most common. However, a lot of times, the shoulder pain can be coming from the neck. That's why it's always important to get a comprehensive evaluation and thermal scan to see exactly where the problem is coming from.

A Puzzle a Day Keeps Dementia Away: Keeping Your Mind Active

A Puzzle a Day Keeps Dementia Away: Keeping Your Mind Active
Published Tuesday, 01 May 2018

About five million people in the United States are suffering from varying degrees of dementia. Dementia is “a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life.” Research has shown that the process of dementia is a slow one and there has been an uptick in research on how to prevent and slow down the symptoms of dementia.

Instead of waiting until symptoms of dementia start showing themselves, there are ways for people throughout their life, to keep their mind healthy and active. All of these recommendations can be used at any age, whether you are young, middle-aged, or retired, it’s never too early or too late to engage your brain!

Hobbies

It might be a bit of a stereotype to say that older women should take up knitting or sewing. However, the cliche “use it or lose it” exists for a reason. Knitting, quilting, model building, cross-stitching, woodworking, painting, playing chess, or playing golf, are all ways to keep your mind engaged.

According to studies, using the skills on a regular basis and endeavoring to improve or take on more challenging projects will keep memory slips at bay.

Social Groups

Some hobbies can be done in a social setting. Along with the hobbies we already listed-- knitting, quilting, chess, or golf-- there are activities and hobbies that can be done with others. If you love reading, think about joining a local book club. Reading is shown to keep your mind sharp, but expressing and listening to the opinions of others can help keep your reasoning skills functioning.

Consider volunteering for a cause close to your heart. Going and helping at your local food bank, or helping at the local hospital keeps you in contact with many different types of people and lets you hone social skills outside of your friends and family.

Keep Learning

Sometimes we lament the amount of technology out in the world, but in terms of keeping an active and engaged mind, technology is practically magic. When you’re in a learning environment, whether that be high school, college, or graduate level work, sometimes it can be exhausting and you wish it over.

You’ll likely find, once you are out of the learning environment, you miss it. Listen to an educational podcast in the car when you are driving places. Pick up an app to learn a new language and commit to studying for a certain amount of time daily. When you challenge your brain to learn new things, you stimulate the processes that will keep your brain cells communicating and functioning.

Music

There have been many studies over the years showing how music is beneficial for dementia and Alzheimer's patients. Even when patients are in the last stages of death, they likely will be able to remember lyrics and sing their favorite hymns, show tunes, or songs.

Newer studies show evidence that people who learned as a child to play an instrument, or older people who never stopped playing an instrument, might help to prevent dementia or slow the progression down.


The doctors at South Orange Chiropractic Center can help you manage and improve your overall health and well-being. Call our offices to make an appointment and see what ways we can help you improve your health and keep your brain active and engaged.

[VIDEO] How Do I Keep My Neck Pain from Coming Back?

Published Thursday, 19 April 2018

Video Transcript

Dr. Mark Roczey: 

Once somebody's neck pain has been addressed, and we are able to diagnose the condition, and we treat them aggressively on active care, we slowly place the patient on passive care. At that point, they're instructed to do more at-home exercises. We commonly recommend a cervical neck pillow to support the neck curvature at night, which is so important, as well as posture techniques at work, so that they can stabilize and address any issues that might be causing more stress on their neck.
