Back Pain

Patient Success Story: Combination of Chiropractic and Nutrition Leads to Greatly Improved Health, Quality of Life

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

It’s always gratifying to see a patient make progress in their quest for health and wholeness.  This particular patient has had great success with a combination of chiropractic and nutritional treatments.  Read on to see how M.A.  has improved over the past few months of seeking treatment at Thorburn Chiropractic and Wellness Center.

“I first came in suffering with a painful re-occurrence of a hiking-induced knee injury.  And then there was that nagging lower back inflammation I’d been suffering with for the past 20 or so years.  With five weeks of treatment my knee was back to normal, and my back had lost 80% of its extreme tenderness. Dr. T is continuing to treat my lower back to get it pain and inflammation-free.

And as if that isn’t enough, Dr. Thorburn’s nutritional expertise is helping me avoid a second heart surgery! Sixteen years ago I had an outpatient surgery to correct supraventricular tachycardia, an electrical problem with the heart that causes random excessive beating.  The procedure was successful, but as time went on, I started having episodes again.  I first went to a cardiologist and was tested to make sure everything else was OK with my heart and to confirm that again I was dealing with an electrical problem.

Dr. Thorburn told me about a patient with a similar condition that she was able to help nutritionally, which gave me hope.  She carries a line of whole food based nutritional products that are really quite remarkable.  Dr. T tested me via a non-invasive method called NRT and found what my body was lacking.  I’ve been taking the supplements she specifically chose for my body’s issues for the past three months and I not only feel great, I’ve had no heart episodes!  And I had four episodes the two weeks before starting the supplements.    Thank you, Dr. Thorburn!”

Until next time…

Yours in health,

Dr. T

Irritable Bowel and Chiropractic?

Posted on Updated on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

If you missed the free seminar we offered at our office a few weeks ago on irritable bowel, you missed a lot!  Here’s some of the information we shared.

Do you bloat after eating? Do you have constipation and/or diarrhea? Do you have a lot of gas? Are you uncomfortable in your bowels?

If so, you are one of millions of Americans who suffer from digestive issues. Many just ignore the problem but the remedy may be easier than you think.

Dr. Robert Maigne, a French physician and manipulative practitioner, wrote a book entitled Diagnosis and Treatment of Pain of Vertebral Origin. He refers to misalignments in the lower midback causing low back pain, hip pain, groin pain and pelvic complaints including irritable bowel syndrome or disorder, urinary symptoms and intestinal problems.

He studied irritable bowel syndrome and found that issues with the spine in the lower midback region can cause irritable bowel syndrome and other problems in the lower abdomen such as urinary problems. When treated medically the results were not successful.

When the nerves of the spine are pinched as a result of spinal dysfunction, the nerves go from working at 100% to working at 40% or less. As a result, the brain, which uses the nerves to communicate to all parts of the body, cannot communicate properly because the nerve is no longer doing its job of carrying messages. The brain, therefore, cannot control the body part supplied by that nerve and that body part cannot work correctly or coordinate with the rest of the body. A disease process can now occur.

One may not have back pain, so they don’t think their spine has anything to do with their organ (bowel, bladder and such) problem. What was always present was spinal dysfunction in the lower part of the midback.

Traditional medical treatment of bowel problems is usually medication and, if severe, part of the bowel is surgically removed. As a non-drug practitioner we look for solutions to heal the bowel so the problem is resolved, not covered up or cut up.

Through standard chiropractic care as well as our nutritional program, called Nutrition Response Testing (NRT),  we can find what will heal your bowel so you have a healthy digestive system. When your digestive system works well, you feel and look better.

Ask about our NRT program for irritable bowel and start feeling good again!

Until next time…

Yours in health,

Dr. T

Misalignment from Debilitating Spine Condition and Sciatica Pain Resolved by Burbank Chiropractor

Posted on Updated on

Greetings from Dr. T:

Sometimes a patient’s return to health is so pronounced that they just have to share their joy.  Such is the case with Beth N., who gave us permission to disclose her story.  It is extremely gratifying to see her radiating health and happiness.

Here is her story in Beth’s own words:

“After suffering with a degenerative spine disease for 13 years and then having stem cell surgery, the alignment of my spine and body was completely off from years of overcompensation.  My back would ‘go out’ and my sciatica nerve was terribly painful.

I came to Dr. Thorburn after I threw my back out making my bed and I couldn’t stand up straight.  Her team worked out a rigorous program of adjustments for me and I can say with complete confidence that this was the final ingredient to making me feel amazing!

My body feels so good and I rarely have a problem with my sciatica nerve.  I am incredibly grateful for the help and care of Dr. Thorburn and her team.”

Why suffer needlessly?  Do you have back pain?  Neck pain?  Have you had an auto accident recently, you walked away without any treatment, and now the pain has set in?

At Thorburn Chiropractic and Wellness Center, we can assess your condition and set up a plan of treatment that will encourage your body to heal.  Our full service Wellness Center offers complete chiropractic care, therapeutic massage, and nutritional counseling with real-food supplements.  We accept all major insurance plans.  Call us for an appointment.  You will be glad you did!

Until next time…

Yours in health,

Dr. T

Osteoporosis: To Drug or Not to Drug – That is the Question

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. T:

On Wednesday, May 6, from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m., I will be presenting a free and informative talk, Osteoporosis: To Drug or Not to Drug – That is the Question.

Osteoporosis is a common bone condition that makes bones thinner and more fragile because of reduced bone density, and it puts people at risk of fractures, especially of the hip, spinal vertebrae and wrist.

Do you already have osteoporosis? Are you at risk? How do you get tested, and then what? There are simple things you can do – from diet and supplements to exercise – that can help build up your bones and lower your chances of falling and causing painful bone fractures. I will explain what causes this condition and simple steps you can take towards your own healing.

To reserve your free seat at the talk, call Thorburn Chiropractic and Wellness Center at 818-841-1313. Bring a friend!

Until next time…

Yours in health,

Come Celebrate Our 30th Anniversary — Wednesday, March 25 from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. T:

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 30 years since I opened my office on Burbank Boulevard! Over these past 30 years, I have seen thousands of people in pain and suffering. Until some friend told them, 80% of these people didn’t know chiropractic care could take them out of pain without drugs and help them live a healthy, active life. Medical studies and my experience prove it. I’ve had the pleasure of treating generations of families, and the evidence of better overall health through chiropractic care has been clear.

Come celebrate this milestone anniversary with me and my wonderful staff, next Wednesday, March 25 from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. Enjoy delicious munchies, join us in a toast, meet new friends – and did I mention the free drawing? The Grand Prize winner will receive a week of free care including a one-hour massage, and second prize is a one-hour massage. You must be present to win.

And during the month of March, we’re rolling back prices on cash new patient fees to 1985 rates. Instead of paying $177 for an initial exam, consultation and adjustment, new patients – whether uninsured or if they have insurance that doesn’t cover chiropractic care – will pay only $30! So please share this with your friends and family.

See you then!

Until next time…

Yours in health,

Dr. T
