Study Finds Common Bacteria Linked to Potential Dangerous Heart Problem

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, Nov 24, 2020

Study finds that a common bacteria known as to cause ulcers may now also be responsible for irregular heart rhythm, known as atrial fibrillation (AF).

Dr. Annibale Montenero, lead researcher and chairman of Multimedica General Hospital's Cardiology Department and Arrhythmia Center, has discovered a strong link between the bacteria helicobacter pylori and an increased risk of developing atrial fibrillation.

How Plastic Deformation Can Cause Back Pain

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, Nov 10, 2020

“Back pain” is a common complaint for a patient. But pain in the back can originate from somewhere else along the Kinetic Chain, such as in the feet. The Kinetic Chain is a term that describes the variety of joints and bones that carry weight from the top of the body to the ground, famously sung about in the Dry Bones song by the Delta Rhythm Boys.

But pain caused by the feet might not necessarily mean pain in the feet. Instead, a structural imbalance might be caused by stress, time, and plastic deformation—when the foot’s tissues stretch beyond their elastic limits and become permanently deformed. 

Plastic Deformation - What Is It?

Think of the soft tissue in your feet like ice cream. If you leave ice cream in the sun, it’s going to melt (deform) and will never be the same. It’s a similar idea with your feet. Once the arches in your feet are stretched beyond their limits, like melted ice cream, they will never be the same. The soft tissues that make up the three arches of the foot are stretched every day as we stand and move. Over the years, being continually pushed past their limits decreases their elasticity. The tissues stay extended instead of returning to their original shape. This condition, called plastic deformation, causes the foot’s entire structure to collapse.

Low Magnesium Associated with Coronary Artery Calcification

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Mon, Nov 02, 2020

Magnesium is probably the greatest predictor of all aspects of heart disease

Approximately more than 50% of Americans are deficient in this mineral. Magnesium plays a key role in more than 350 enzymes and is involved in virtually every metabolic process occurring in the body. 

Studies have suggested an association between low serum magnesium levels and cardiovascular disease. Low magnesium intake has also been associated with future risk of hypertension and stroke. Furthermore, numerous studies have shown that low serum magnesium is associated with vascular calcification, but there have been no studies examining a relationship to coronary artery calcification.

NATURAL MANAGEMENT OF CHRONIC PAIN

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, Jul 14, 2020

Management of chronic pain is one of the main reasons many people seek out chiropractic care. According to a National Institutes of Health Study in 2011, 76 million Americans are in chronic pain. The traditional care methods include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or opioids. Of course, these do bring a level of relief, but many also bring a level of risk for dangerous side effects.

In recent years, there has been a major upswing in interest for managing pain using natural methods, away from the risk of dangerous side effects or addiction. Chiropractic techniques promote the body’s ability to self-heal and promote recovery, not simply hiding the symptoms.

Yet, during treatment, patients will see stronger results if they can manage their pain and healing outside of the office.
