It’s A Wonderful Life – Happy Holidays – Holiday Schedule

Scene from the movie, "It's a Wonderful Life", which inspired Dr. David Schwartz of The Back Care Center to write this post.

Happy Holidays to all my friends and practice members.  Hopefully you’re enjoying the season’s festivities.  One of my favorite movies at this time of year is “It’s A Wonderful Life” with Jimmy Stewart.  I haven’t seen it yet this year but I started wondering what would life be like if someone important to me simply had never existed, just like in the movie.

One person that popped into my head right away was my first chiropractor.  Without him, my life would be very different.  With his help I didn’t need back surgery when I was a kid and have been able to live an active life, enjoying things like golf, tennis, skiing, rollerblading, swimming and working out.

Because of my positive experience with him, I eventually became a chiropractor,  set up a practice and ended up living in Dumont.  I was where I needed to be to meet my wife Marina, get married and have my daughter, Maya.  Over the 25+ years I have been in practice, thousands of patients with back pain, neck pain, headaches and sciatica have come to my office and fortunately I have been able to help most of them.

It makes me realize how important one man was to my life and I wonder how many others, like me, he affected as well.  If he ever gets a chance to look back at his life, I hope he can see his impact and say “It’s A Wonderful Life.”

All the best to you during the holiday season, from Dr. David Schwartz and the staff of The Back Care Center of Dumont, NJ.

Irony!

Covering symptoms with drugs won't fix the problem!

I have a patient from Cresskill who recently started seeing me for lower back pain, the result of a couple of very badly degenerated and bulging discs. He has tried many different things to deal with the pain. His doctor had prescribed some very strong medications but the patient told me that he “doesn’t want to use drugs to mask the problem” and was concerned how the drugs might affect his ability to focus at work. He also didn’t like the way his doctors were pushing him towards future back surgery.

It is early in his care but by using chiropractic, cold laser and spinal decompression and we have begun to see positive results. He has less pain and I am very certain that he will continue to get great results

The irony is that this patient is a pharmacist. He knows more about medication than most doctors and he didn’t want to take any pills.

It is refreshing to meet someone who is involved in health care and knows that covering symptoms with drugs won’t fix a problem.

There is a time and place for medication, but the most important thing you can do to regain your health is find out what is wrong and then fix it. At The Back Care Center, that is what we do for you.

The Back Care Center is located in Dumont, NJ and we see patients from our surrounding towns including Bergenfield, Bogota, Closter, Cresskill, Englewood, Harrington Park, New Milford, Ridgefield Park, Teaneck and Tenafly. Call us at 201-387-7463 to schedule an appointment today.

Frequent Headaches Are Not Normal – Chiropractic Can Help!

Image of woman with frequent headache that could be treated with chiropractic adjustments

I have written about this before but as a result of some recent experiences, I thought it would be worth revisiting the topic. Headaches are one of the most common reasons for visits to the medical doctor. Millions of dollars are spent on medication for them every year. They are also one of the reasons that many people seek help in a chiropractic office.

The pain from headaches can be severe, but most are not due to a disease like a tumor or high blood pressure. Instead they are typically from physical, chemical or emotional stresses. The medical approach is usually some type of drug to mask the symptoms without ever considering why the problem is occurring.

Recently I had two new patients come in seeking help with headaches. One of them started care, was seeing improvement but also saw a neurologist who told them they should discontinue chiropractic care, take more medication and try exercising. (The patient also had a lower back problem that we were working on which made exercise very difficult.) He didn’t care that the patient was seeing improvement and sadly convinced them not to continue doing what was already helping.

Another patient, also with chronic headaches, had a similar experience. Her pain was so bad that it affected her home life and work. After two adjustments her headaches were almost totally gone. Her primary physician also saw her. He told her that there was nothing wrong. Fortunately, she realized that having almost daily headaches was not normal. She continued with care and is working to correct the cause of her headaches.

I have had hundreds of patients come to the office for relief of their headache pain. Our approach is to examine them, determine the cause and see if it can be helped with a combination of life style changes, nutritional support and chiropractic adjustments. Based upon the relief our patients report, I can tell you, we are very successful with our tactic.

Frequent headaches are not normal. Controlling them with medication doesn’t help you to fix the problem and the side effects can be horrible. Instead of covering up the symptoms with medication every day, find out what is causing the problem. Give us a call so we can help.
