Weber Family Chiropractic - Weekly Health Tip
January 13, 2020
Dear patient and friend,
In the journals I read I often come across new developments in the science of chiropractic. However, people like you never become aware of these important ideas since the media reports so little of it.
Therefore I’ve taken yet upon myself to keep you informed of crucial breakthroughs because I know how important they can be to you, your family and friends. As your doctor, I believe it is part of my sacred trust. So for your information and consideration, here are these unique and revolutionary developments.
Can't seem to shake that back pain? Continually plagued by headaches? You're not alone. Chronic back and headache pain are among the most prevalent and disabling disorders worldwide. Even more troubling, experiencing one of these conditions may raise your likelihood of experiencing both. But here's the good news: the potential reason why these two disorders may be connected points to a single solution: chiropractic care.
According to research published in the Journal of Headache and Pain, people who suffer persistent back pain or headaches are approximately twice as likely to suffer from both. Their findings are based on a review of studies involving more than 450,000 total participants suffering from back pain and headaches. Overall, the researchers found 14 studies that reported an association between "primary headache disorders and persistent low back pain."
While the study authors do not spell out the cause of the connection between these two common, debilitating conditions, abundant previous evidence suggests musculoskeletal dysfunction, particularly involving the spine and spinal nerves, is a potential factor with both headaches and back pain.
That makes chiropractic care a great option when you're experiencing either condition – or both. In fact, since a chiropractor can help both back pain and headaches, there's a good chance that if you're only suffering from one, chiropractic care may prevent the other from occurring at all. Now that's a two-for-one win with chiropractic!

Before I went to see Dr. Weber, I suffered from headaches, a bulging disc and my hips hurt. On a pain scale of 0 to 10, my pain was a 10+. I was using ibuprofen, MSM and icy hot to help with the pain. I had been to a chiropractor in the past so I was not skeptical that he would be able to help me. My first impression of chiropractic, this office and Dr. Weber is that I loved it!!! Now my sister is seeing Dr. Weber and getting great results too. I recommend chiropractic to anyone who will listen.
I first came to see Dr. Weber at Weber Family Chiropractic because I knew I needed an adjustment on my back and feet. I had been to another chiropractor in my hometown and while at my last college, so I knew what to expect. My mother, back at home, has treated with a chiropractor for her rheumatoid arthritis. Chiropractic has been able to help her also. By attending regular visits with Dr. Weber, I have been able to participate in sports while in college and play to my fullest ability. Without regular adjustments, I would not be playing sports. I would recommend chiropractic to anyone who is sick or suffering.
