Video Transcript

Dr. Mark Roczey: 

Once we accurately diagnose somebody with a shoulder injury, we're going to use either chiropractic care, physical therapy, or acupuncture to get the best results. We find that a shoulder needs chiropractic care we're typically going to adjust the cervical spine because a multitude of the nerves from the neck go to the shoulder. We're also going to do some specific shoulder points that we've known to get good relief, better mobilization, and increased circulation to the muscles and tissue around the area. If it's a physical therapy case such as frozen shoulder, we're going to have our physical therapists mobilize it, stim, heat, which will allow it to increase it's range of motion. Then after they've gained full range of motion in the shoulder then we want to strengthen it so that it's stable and conditioned. Our acupuncturist is going to stick various needles inside acupressure points, which are going to make everyone feel good because that's what it does.

Dr. Mark S. Sielski: 

Well, here we use several different techniques. We use some very light force, to what we call manual, which is hands-on. We use the Pro-Adjuster, which is a computerized adjustment instrument. We also use an Activator. We use SOT or Sacro-Occipital Technique, and we use manual where we're hands-on. We'll stretch the spine, and we do manual adjustments with our hands. 

Learn These New Skills to Keep Your Mind Sharp As You Age

Learn These New Skills to Keep Your Mind Sharp As You Age
Published Thursday, 09 August 2018

If we are lucky, every 365 days we become a year older. If we are smart, we spend those 365 days a year making sure our body is healthy and active so that we maintain our quality of life. It seems obvious to exercise our body and eat right, but may it is not so obvious to exercise your brain!

As we age, we can lose cognitive ability; the ability to think as quickly as we once did starts to diminish over time. When humans are young, we are constantly learning. Our brains are in the best shapes of their lives. As we grow into young adults, the basics are built, but we continue on into school and our brains continue to get their daily workout.

Then, we get into a career and a routine, and our brains start to go on a semi-autopilot. There may be challenges to unravel in your job, but in many cases, it is much the same routine day in and day out. It doesn’t mean that you aren’t happy and fulfilled, but it does mean your brain, while still healthy, is no longer actively learning.

Just as we exercise and eat right to maintain our physical health, we can learn new skills that will help our brains stay active, healthy, and sharp as we age. Here is a list of five skills you can learn in your downtime to keep your brain at its best.

Keep Your Mind Sharp Skill #1: Learn a New Language

One of the best things about the major advancements in technology is that information is quite literally at our fingertips. There are apps on your phone that cost little to nothing at all that will help you to learn a new language. Something as simple as taking your dog for a walk in the evening and listening to lessons on your phone will help keep your mind and your body active. Use your time wisely in the car and put on the language app and learn on your commute.

You may find you really love learning a new language and want to take it further than just learning on your own. There are plenty of community colleges where you can take a language class to help you master your new skill.

Keep Your Mind Sharp Skill #2: Computer Skills

Just as the apps above can help you learn a new language, keeping up to date on your computer skills is as easy as downloading an app. There are also computer programs you can download that will teach you anything from how to write a business letter to spreadsheets to coding. Kids as young as elementary school now learn to code on computers, so regardless of your skill level, you can start to learn new computer skills.

Keep Your Mind Sharp Skill #3: Card Games

Obviously, we aren’t talking about playing Go Fish with your kids or grandkids here. Learn how to play Euchre or Gin Rummy or any number of card games that require you to strategize and think as you play. This helps to keep your brain engaged and working to solve a kind of puzzle.

Puzzles are also really great for the brain as well!

Playing card games has an added bonus of socializing, as most complicated card games are played in groups. Socializing as one grows older has been shown to keep the mind more active and engaged, as well as deterring dementia and Alzheimer's.

Keep Your Mind Sharp Skill #4: Golfing/Tennis

Learning to play golf or tennis, or any active sport as we age will keep the mind healthy and engaged. Just as card games have the added bonus of socializing, so too does learning to play golf or tennis. It also has the benefit of physical activity!

Physical activity is great for keeping the body healthy, but did you know that physical activity can also keep the mind healthy? It ensures the blood and oxygen continues to flow to the brain.

Keep Your Mind Sharp Skill #5: Knitting/Crochet/Cross-stitch

Learning how to knit, crochet or cross-stitch (or all three!) gives the brain a great boost and even as you continue to hone your craft, it exercises your brain as you learn new patterns, new stitches, and accomplish new projects

There are also studies that say learning to do these crafts can fight off depression.

If you’re looking for ways to keep your mind, body, and overall health at optimal levels as you age, call the doctors at South Orange Chiropractic Center, to see how they can keep you in good health and wellness. Our excellent customer service team is ready to make you an appointment today!

Dr. Mark S. Sielski: 

The Sacro-Occipital Technique is a technique where you use blocks. They're padded blocks and basically after we do a specific analysis on the spine we would use the appropriate blocking technique. It's all light force. Your body does the adjusting itself. It takes about five to 10 minutes to do and the results are fantastic.

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.

Video Transcript

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.

Video Transcript

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.
