We’re Taking On Domestic Violence

As Mother’s Day is approaching, The Back Care Center in Dumont is again working to help troubled families in the Bergen County area with their annual fund raising drive benefiting “Center for Hope and Safety”.

 

Since 1976, Center For Hope And Safety (formerly Shelter Our Sisters) has offered refuge to Bergen County’s women and children who are affected by domestic violence by providing a diversified continuum of services that focus on attaining safety, empowerment and self-sufficiency. The agency’s life-saving programs include: a 24-hour hotline; a confidential emergency shelter; transitional housing, crisis counseling; case management; children’s programming; legal assistance; Hispanic outreach; financial literacy and work-readiness training; follow-up services; and community education.

The Back Care Center Donating Chiropractic care

Center For Hope and Safety Charity fund raiser

 

This Year, May 8th-13th, Dr. David Schwartz, of The Back Care Center in Dumont NJ will again be donating his time to help raise awareness and much needed funds for CHS. However, for the first time, Chiropractic offices around the country will also do the same for shelters in their local region.

 

All new patients in exchange for a $50 donation to the center will receive a full chiropractic examination, any needed digital x-rays, a report of examination findings and a gift certificate for a ½ hour massage (normally valued at $305). Existing patients will be able to make a $20 donation in exchange for an adjustment (normally $60). All donations will go to CHS.

 

“Right after my daughter was born I started donating my time to this cause” said Dr. Schwartz. “The idea of a woman or a child being hurt and having no option and no safe haven is simply unacceptable.”

 

If you would like to contribute or make an appointment with Dr. Schwartz, call his office at 201-387-7463.

Are stiff necks, back pain and hip pain interfering with your golf swing?

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I went to visit my family and enjoy the warm weather in Florida. Part of the time I stayed at my parent’s house, which backs up onto a golf course. Sitting in the back yard I was often so close to the golfers it felt like I was part of their foursomes.

It was interesting watching so many different players and hearing their comments following the shot. A good golf swing depends on all of the parts of your body working together. It seemed that at least half the time, the players had some type of pain causing a “hitch” in their swing and affecting the shot.

Lower back pain and hip pain are common complaints and most golfers know it can ruin their game. It is why so many golfers come to me with pain from sprains, strains or even herniated discs. Using a combination of treatments including chiropractic adjustments, cold laser therapy, spinal decompression, massage and core exercises we get them back to their game.

Some of the golfers also seemed surprised how much swinging the club hurt their neck. After the shot I noticed many of them rubbing their neck or shoulders in obvious discomfort with a look of frustration over the difficulty they were having in hitting the ball solidly.

Limited motion, stiffness or pain in your neck prevents you from holding your head down and still while swinging. Some typical compensations include picking your head up, sliding backward, swaying forward or bending your elbows. There are various reasons for loss of motion in the neck, but with some proper golf fitness exercises and chiropractic care, we have helped many of our golfers get back to hitting the ball straighter and further, without all the pain.

If you would like us to help you get your golf game where it should be, give us a call at the Back Care Center of Dumont, NJ to set up an appointment.

The area of your back pain or neck pain isn’t always the area of your problem

It doesn’t always make sense to my patients, but the area of their back pain or neck pain is not always the area of their problem. Just recently, a patient came into my office complaining of lower back and hip pain. I had treated him for a herniated disc in his neck. After some adjustments and time on the spinal decompression therapy table, he made a complete recovery and was able to back to his favorite pastime, playing golf.

This was a new issue. The pain had started recently and didn’t seem to be related to his previous neck injury. After talking about when the pain began and examining not just his lower back but his entire spine, we discovered that he had lost almost all of the rotation in his mid-back, making it almost impossible to swing the golf club properly. As a result, every time he tried to swing normally, he caused a severe rotational force to be focused in his lower back. Thanks to my Titleist Certified Golf Fitness training, I knew that this was actually a situation that can occur frequently.

We began working on restoring motion in his ribs and thoracic spine as well as normal diaphragmatic breathing and core stability. Combined with chiropractic adjustments and some work with our massage therapist, I expect him to do very well and be back to playing golf within a few weeks.

Do massage therapy and chiropractic care work well together?

Image showing Back at Ease massage therapy located in The Back Care Center of Dumont, NJ

People ask me my opinion on massage and chiropractic as a combined therapy. I have to say I think they work perfectly together.

After all, a chiropractor’s job is to keep the skeletal system aligned through chiropractic adjustments and exercise. And a key part of massage therapy is re-teaching muscles their proper placement throughout the skeletal system.

So combining massage therapy with chiropractic care allows the muscles to be trained to “hold” the body properly. When we walk around unaligned, the muscles learn to “make do” and compensate for these misalignments. Just as chiropractic adjustments re-teach the body the proper alignment, massage teaches the muscles how to keep it there.

If you’d like to see just how the combination of massage therapy and chiropractic care work together, why not give the office a call and make an appointment at from Back at Ease, our therapeutic massage center located in The Back Care Center? I believe that you will absolutely “feel” the difference in your health and well-being.
