What Is Gingivitis?

GingivitisIt’s probably safe to say that everybody has heard the term ‘gingivitis.’ Most people probably even know that gingivitis is gum disease. But do you know the impact it can have on your oral health? Yes, put simply, gingivitis is gum disease. The problem is that it’s not simple at all. If left untreated, gingivitis can lead to more serious oral health problems such as periodontitis, which is an inflammatory disease that affects the tissues surrounding and supporting your teeth. Once periodontitis sets in, it can cause bone loss which can then lead to tooth loss. The American Academy of Periodontology, a non-profit membership association for periodontists, lists gingivitis as a common, mild form of gum disease. Doesn’t sound so bad, right? Wrong! If this mild form of gum disease goes unchecked, it can lead to less common and far more serious forms of gum disease that can threaten the health of your teeth and its supporting structures. Thankfully, gingivitis often is easily prevented. It can even be treated once you get it, but why risk it? Why not just prevent it in the first place?! Following is more information on gingivitis, its causes, and what you can do to avoid getting it. Continue reading “What Is Gingivitis?”

Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic Care and Pain Management

A chiropractor is one of those things where people that do go, love it, and people that don’t go, just don’t understand why a few cracks and pops can make someone feel better! Well, for those of you that do not go to a chiropractor I can say that it’s about more than just a few cracks and pops. It’s about pain management, posture, pain relief elimination and a whole lot more. If you ever truly wanted to know about the benefits of chiropractic care, but you didn’t know who to ask or you were afraid to ask, continue to read below where we go over some of benefits of going to a chiropractor in New Jersey.

Every single day, no matter how old you are, what type of job you have or what activities you do during the day, your bodies (joints, muscles, bones, tendons, etc.) are constantly under pressure. You also deal with a lot of stress and tension during the day. Because of this, you might experience what chiropractors call “micro injuries”. These types of injuries are usually pretty minor, but through time they become more and more painful and more and more agonizing. Then and only then do we actually seek help because it’s literally too much to stand anymore. Micro injuries are not prevalent in everyone, however, they are very common in people that work on computers throughout the day, people that have physically demanding jobs, and people that are active – either for fun or professionally and for people that have really hectic and rigorous schedules. Instead of letting a small ache or pain get worse to the point where you can’t take it anymore, you can stop it before it gets to that point by visiting a chiropractor that can address the situation early on – before it really becomes a problem.

If you have a lot of stress in your life, you know how it can affect you. Stress relief is one of if not THE most sought after treatment today. A lot of people visit massage therapists, but the one thing they don’t realize is that massage therapists don’t know everything there is to know about your body, specifically. They deal with the musculoskeletal every day, all day as well as your nervous system. They can tell when something is out of alignment or if you are collecting a certain sense of stress or tension in a specific part of your body. Relieving stress can make your mood better, make your posture better, less headaches and neck aches and just allows you to live a better more healthy lifestyle.

If you have a computer, phone, laptop or you even like to read – you might catch yourself leering over the object. It’s unhealthy. It creates all sorts of issues, not only when it comes to pain and aches in your neck, back and spine, but it can also lead to really bad posture! Thankfully, when you start to see a chiropractor they will be able to pinpoint exactly where your spine is not moving correctly and give you tips on how to stand and sit straighter. They also might help you address, how you stand, tilting of your body while walking or sitting, curvatures of the spine and how to work towards creating a strong spine. They even may suggest daily things you can do to create a better posture such as a back brace, better shoes, different types of exercises you can do to strengthen the spin and so much more!

If you have been dealing with a certain pain or ache over a prolonged amount of time – days, week, even years, a chiropractor can help increase flexibility, circulation, muscle and spasm reduction and deal with things like lactic acid, and increased oxygenation. They will also deal with a great way to deliver nutrients to the cells in your body – which can help create a quicker recovery time and the promotion of rapid self-healing. If you have any issues that revolve around your musculoskeletal system, a Chiropractor can help you deal with that pain and in some cases even offer help to eliminate pain altogether.

How to Get Sciatica Relief

sciatic nerve

Treating Sciatica is possible, without the help of a doctor. However, it’s important to know why you are having the symptoms you are having. Some people may refer to Sciatica as a disease, when actually this is not true. Instead, it’s merely a set of symptoms that can come along with an issue such as a back or neck injury. It can be very painful if you have issues with your Sciatica, but not everyone has the leisure of visiting a chiropractor in New Jersey either because their lifestyle is too hectic or because they don’t have a chiropractor or they just want to relieve the pain now, rather than later. One of the biggest reasons for your Sciatica to be bothering you is because of a herniated disc – essentially compression to a nerve in your spine. This type of an issue can cause symptoms such as a shooting pain up your lower back, a shooting pain down your legs and even causes a cool feeling in your spine – some people say it feels like someone is dripping ice water down their back. It’s uncomfortable to say the least. When a lot of people have Sciatica issues, they tend to brace themselves every time they move, get up, sit down, take a shower, etc. Because of this, your muscles can then become stiff and tight which leads to even more problems! If you want to do a few home remedies, continue to read below for more information and tips. Continue reading “How to Get Sciatica Relief”
