NSAIDs: Pain Medications & Anti-Inflammatory Drugs
Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) are a type of medication that provides analgesic (pain-killing) and antipyretic (fever-reducing) effects, and, in higher doses, anti-inflammatory effects. The most well known NSAIDs are aspirin (Bayer®), ibuprofen (Motrin®), and naproxen (Aleve®, Naprosyn®), which are available over the counter in most countries. Millions of people use NSAIDs daily for spinal stenosis, sciatica, low back pain, migraines and headaches, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, neck pain, mid-back pain, menstrual cramping, joint pain, and many other symptoms. They are one of the most commonly used over the counter medications but few understand the risks associated with regular and long term use. Read More
Scoliosis and Chiropractic Care
Scoliosis is a condition described as a lateral (or sideways) curvature of the spine instead of the usual straight, vertical line. When a person with a normal spine is viewed from behind, the spine should appear to be straight. When the person has scoliosis and is viewed in the same manner, the spine appears to be curved, especially in more prominent cases. Scoliosis is typically diagnosed in a child’s teenage years through a school screening or chiropractic evaluation. It is also found to be more common in girls than boys, specifically ages 10-16.

Your Digestive System
Your digestive system, also known as the gastrointestinal tract (GI tract), has its own intelligent nerve system known as the enteric nervous system that operates independently at times and synergistically with the brain. The enteric nervous system is in constant communication with your brain, and the brain acts on the information shared by your gut. Your brain also totally trusts every piece of information it receives from your gut — and never tries to override it. So, when your gut tells your brain that you need to go to the bathroom or throw up — your brain reacts. Your brain will also react to messages of things like sugar cravings from your enteric nervous system. Read More
The Benefits of Vitamin D
It is estimated that one billion people worldwide have a vitamin D deficiency. While this deficiency is mainly thought to be due to insufficient sun exposure, in some cases it is linked to a poor diet. There is a growing body of evidence relating to the importance of vitamin D. As well as being a well-known risk factor for rickets, vitamin D deficiency also increases an individual's susceptibility to autoimmune conditions such as multiple sclerosis (MS), type 1 diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis, as well as certain cancers, and even dementia.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Multiple sclerosis (MS) behaves like an autoimmune disease that targets the central nervous system. Autoimmune diseases occur when the immune system attacks healthy cells within the body rather than foreign substances in the body. There are many symptoms that may be present in individuals living with multiple sclerosis that can interfere with everyday activities; among these are fatigue, numbness and tingling, vision problems and difficulty walking. There is no cure with medication to date for MS, however there are various treatment options available for those affected by the condition, including chiropractic care. Read More
Chiropractic care is based on the fact that your body is a self-healing, self-regulating organism which is controlled by your nervous system (brain, spinal cord, and nerves).
Interference to the nervous system occurs when the movable bones of the spine (vertebrae) slip out of place due to everyday jolts, bumps, twists, slips, or jars. This misalignment narrows the small openings between vertebrae through which the nerves pass to reach all parts of the body. When misalignment, or subluxation, happens, the vertebrae press on a nerve, irritate it, and interfere with the transmission of nerve signals to the body. Chiropractors detect and correct these subluxations, restoring the body’s nerve signals by gently replacing the bone to its normal position with gentle pressures called adjustments.
Kempsville Chiropractic uses chiropractic care and gentle adjustments to successfully to treat the many conditions dealing with pain and range of motion, as well as providing support to the function of your internal organs. Numerous problems effecting the spine, neck, muscles, and internal organs can by corrected through proper chiropractic care without the use of drugs and other medications. Here is a partial list of some of the common conditions we see on a daily basis.

Health is a Process
Chiropractic care uses a unique approach to health. Rather than masking or treating just the symptom, chiropractors detect the underlying cause of the symptom, correct it, and then maintain wellness through a three-phase process:
- Initial Phase:
During the initial phase, based on your health history and exam findings, it is our goal to reduce and eliminate your symptoms.
- Restoration/Corrective Phase:
During this intermediate phase, we transition and focus on your health goals. The emphasis now is to correct the underlying cause of your symptom or condition and facilitate restoration of long-term health.
- Wellness Phase:
During this advanced phase, we help you maintain continued wellness and optimum health through regular chiropractic care and lifestyle management.
Chiropractic care is beneficial for people of all ages, including infants and children. Many structural problems that may not cause pain until later years are the result of birth or childhood injuries. A healthy spine and nervous system are the first steps to becoming a healthy child.
Your First Visit to Kempsville Chiropractic
During your first visit to the Kempsville Chiropractic office, you will receive a thorough comprehensive examination including the latest technology to document any interference to your nervous system, and any necessary X-rays. After careful review of your exam and X-ray findings, we will recommend an individualized health program designed to help you reach your optimum health potential, maximizing the quality of your life.
Many health conditions can be traced to lifestyle choices. Because of this, we will be advising you on the need for exercise, postural improvements, nutrition, stress management, rest (sleep), and other aspects of your health.
