Neck Pain

Chiropractic 101: How Does It Work?

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

October is National Chiropractic Health Month, the annual celebration of the benefits of chiropractic care and its natural, whole person, patient-centered and drug-free approach to health and wellness.  I thought I would start off the month by offering a simple review of how and why it works.

About 30 million Americans visit chiropractors each year. A great many of these people are seeking relief from back pain from various causes, including accidents, sports injuries, and muscle strains. Other complaints for which people seek chiropractic care include carpal tunnel syndrome, pregnancy aches, knee and leg pain, sciatica, and headaches. Chiropractic care can also help with many non-traditional problems such as blood pressure, reflux, anxiety and depression, asthma, and more. Here’s why.

It’s a scientific fact that your nervous system (brain, spinal cord, and nerves) control every single thing about your body – from breathing, blood flow, digestion, energy level, to all organ functions. So, if the nervous system is healthy, you are healthy too. But, what happens if your nervous system becomes unhealthy? Yep – you become unhealthy.

Your nerves can be chafed, stretched, compressed, or irritated where they exit the spine due to a vertebra moving out of place. When this happens, the nerve shuts down and your organs can then work overtime or become weakened and your health suffers.

Your body wants to be healthy but it cannot when your nerves aren’t working correctly. When the bones go out of place you may have pain, but most often you do not, so you cannot tell if you have vertebrae out of place by how you feel.

Chiropractic treatment restores proper motion of the spinal bones, which reduces nerve irritation. Chiropractic also works on the other joints to restore normal movement.

More and more people are choosing chiropractic care first — before medicine and surgery as it is safe, natural and works with your body to create optimum health.

New patient special for the month of October… At Thorburn Chiropractic, we are celebrating National Chiropractic Health Month with a terrific special. New patients without chiropractic coverage get their first visit for $29 cash, a $177 value! (Those with health insurance pay their usual co-pay as required by their health insurance.) The first visit includes a consultation, exam, and adjustment. Please share this with your family and friends.

Until next time…

Yours in health,

Dr. T

How Do You Know if You Need Chiropractic Care?

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

Many people have their first experience with chiropractic care as the result of an accident.  They come in seeking immediate pain relief as they have neck pain or back pain from being rear-ended in an auto accident; they have a sports-related injury, or they injured their back doing an everyday activity.

But it’s not unusual to feel no symptoms at all, or to not have any kind of injury, and still have your back out of alignment.  Only a qualified Chiropractic professional can assess the condition of your spine.

The bones of our spine can move out of place due to poor posture or various types of stress.  Despite a lack of pain, this misalignment can cause degeneration, putting stress on particular nerves and causing stress on your nervous system.

At Thorburn Chiropractic and Wellness Center, we recommend coming in for a monthly adjustment.  We can nip any misalignments in the bud and keep your spine in tip-top shape. It’s your first line of defense towards continued good health and a naturally pain-free life.

Our October monthly special is 50% off your initial Nutrition Response Testing (NRT) appointment.  This is a non-invasive means for testing your body for what nutrients it may be deficient in.  And it’s these deficiencies that cause many of the health conditions people suffer with needlessly, sometimes for years.  Do you have hormone issues like hot flashes and night sweats?  Heart palpitations?  Allergies and skin conditions?   All of these and more can be helped with nutrition.  The regular price for the initial testing is $120, but through October 31, 2015, pay only $60. Call our office to schedule your appointment today.

Until next time…

Yours in health,

Chiropractic Can Do What?

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

October is National Chiropractic Health Month —  horaaaayyyyyy!!!  So it’s time to reveal the truth about Chiropractic.

It’s a scientific fact that your brain, spinal cord and nerves control every single thing about your body-breathing, blood flow, digestion, energy level, all organ functions. So, if the nervous system is healthy, you are healthy too. But, what happens if your nervous system becomes unhealthy? Yep-you become unhealthy.

Your nerves can be chafed, stretched, compressed, or irritated where they exit the spine due to a vertebra moving out of place. When this happens, the nerve shuts down and organs can then work overtime or can become weakened and your health suffers.

Your body wants to be healthy but cannot be healthy when your nerves aren’t working correctly. When the bones go out of place you may have pain, but you usually do not, so you cannot tell if you have vertebra out of place by how you feel.

Chiropractic works by restoring proper motion of the spinal bones which reduces nerve irritation. We also work on the other joints to restore normal movement.

More and more people are choosing chiropractic care first — before medicine and surgery.  Chiropractic is safe, natural and works with your body to create health.

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

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
