Numbness and Tingling Solution

Do you suffer with abnormal sensation in your arms or legs, feet or hands? Pins and Needles, numbness and tingling, peripheral neuropathy, diabetic neuropathy, complicated radiculopathy, call it what you will but whatever you call it, it’s no fun! Numbness and tingling in the arms and hands, or legs and feet can rob you of your quality life in ways that other symptoms and pain will never do.

Are You Feeling “Balled-Up”

Patients often reports that they feel that they have a “balled-up” sock sensation under their feet, that they feel they are walking on rocks all the time or are constantly dropping items or unable to pick things up because of the debilitating symptoms. These symptoms can create a situation where simple activities of daily living become difficult if not impossible.

Peripheral neuropathy can have several causes including complication of chemotherapy, diabetes, nerve injury due to trauma, infection or tumor and others. The symptoms can vary from mild to very severe burning pain, with loss or altered sensation in both hands and feet. The symptoms can arise many weeks or months after a car crash, can come from nerve injury during surgery and can also be a complication of weight gain and other metabolic disorders.

Loss of Sensation

Loss of sensation in the hands robs you of your main tool to experience the world through touch. Imagine not being able to feel your child’s hand in your, not be able to feel the touch of your spouse or lover or not knowing that you have been injured because of the nerve damage.

If a numb extremity has a small cut, the possibility of serious infection increases dramatically and the consequences can be devastating. Many diabetic patients must have limbs amputated due to complication of cuts and infections that they are unable to feel because of the peripheral neuropathy. Many patients that experience the pain of sciatica and radiculopathy have complications that lead to numbness and tingling in the feet, side of the leg or toes. If this nerve damage is untreated, the sensation loss can become permanent!

Chronic Pain and Your Brain | Windsor Chiropractor

Windsor Chiropractor Back Pain ReliefChronic pain has effects that go way beyond the obvious. Everyone knows that chronic pain impacts mood and can lead to depression. It’s pretty obvious that chronic pain can interfere with work ability, with relationships, and chronic pain can lead to deconditioning and loss of strength, flexibility and eventually complete disability. What people often don’t realize is that chronic pain, especially chronic low back pain, is the number one cause of disability in the world, and chronic pain actually has profound effects of the brain, including an estimated 1 cubic centimeter of brain shrinkage for every 10 years of chronic pain suffering. The brain and injured tissues are also impacted by prolonged inflammation leading to poor neurotransmitter and hormone balance and regulation and a host of other health conditions, including weight gain and obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Chronic pain is killing us!

Unfortunately, chronic pain has not been handled well in the US. We have more people addicted to prescription narcotics than any time in history. And, as prescription pain relievers are monitored more and more carefully by prescribing doctors, and governmental watchdogs, availability decreases. As the availability of the drugs is diminished, many prescription pain patients can’t get the relief from the medications alone and the switch to cheaper street drugs like heroin becomes more and more prevalent.

The effects of chronic pain are only being masked with these drugs, and the situation is essentially like putting a Barbie® Band-Aid® on gangrene! The outcome will not be good! Covering up the epidemic of chronic pain with medications is simply not working. Fortunately, there are non-drug solutions to pain relief. Chronic pain has been managed for decades by physical therapy with many patients getting better after movement therapies. Combine the Power Plate™ with our physical therapy regimens and chronic pain can quickly become a thing of the past as strength, flexibility and function improve.

Chiropractic has helped people overcome chronic pain for more than 110 years. Chiropractic and spinal manipulation can increase range of motion and decrease effectively. Combine the incredible spine-changing effects of CBP® Chiropractic and structure, posture and chronic pain improve quickly and dramatically. Once the spine is corrected back toward a normal position, balance, coordination and improved ability to perform pain-free activities of daily living all improves.

Our medical team can assist you in non-drug ways to manage and improve your pain and we can help you find alternatives to the typical routine of drugs followed by more drugs followed by surgery and a lifetime of drugs. We want to talk to you about the other options!

Chronic pain does not need to control your life! If you or someone you know is suffering, there is hope in a drug-free, repeatable, reliable and effective program like the ones at Benchmark Medical Group in Windsor, Colorado. We have helped thousands of patients for longer than a decade get back on their feet again, and overcome their pain. If you have had enough with the struggle of chronic pain, give us a call! We can help! 970-686-9117

Three Ways to Live Your Dream Life | Windsor Chiropractor

Windsor Chiropractor and Back Pain ReliefPeople often ask me how they can get more energy, how they can grow muscle and lose fat, how they can get rid of pain and improve their ability to live the life they deserve. Unfortunately, the answer is often a hard pill to swallow. With our growing obesity epidemic and low back pain being the #1 cause of disability in the world, many people are not willing to take the changes necessary to improve their life, get over their short-comings and problems and live the life they were meant to live.

People will delay treatment because of financial reasons, because they feel they don’t have the time to take care of themselves, and because they do not truly know the results they can achieve if they simply do the necessary steps. This delay will only lead to one thing, more pain. Eventually this pain leads to true suffering and at that point, nearly all is lost.

Obesity, pain, suffering, numbness to sensation and numbness to the love, passion and life that is around us. What is the ultimate result? Life unfulfilled. Unfortunately, folks in pain for too long become depressed, folks who are depressed for too long report chronic pain and the vicious cycle leads to broken relationships, broken homes, and broken bodies.

But there is an alternative! Many of the methods required to get healthy and stay that way do not require a 180° transformation of your life and your lifestyle. If you have a roadmap, you can get where you want to go!

The first step is pain relief. If you are suffering and not finding answers, you are looking in the wrong place! The answers to pain relief are out there and once you get over your pain, strength, flexibility, function and quality of life follow. Pain reduction and pain resolution can open doors of possibilities that you once thought were sealed. Pain relief is the first step necessary in changing your body, your attitude and, in many cases, your life!

Second, in order to become the person you want to be, you have to know why you want to be that person. What will less pain give you? What will being stronger mean to your life? How will having 70% more energy impact the way you interact with your friends, your kids, your boss, spouse and complete strangers? If you can solidify why you want to be healthy and you can see it, touch it, feel it and taste it, then that “why” will pull you toward your goal! Until you solidify what impact being leaner, healthier and pain free will allow you to be, do or become, you will struggle.

Third, you need to realize that most of the battle is between your ears! The psychology of happiness and success shows time and again that once you change your mental attitude about something, solidify the “why”, and have a practical map to get you there, you’re almost there! Getting your head into the game of health will make it easier, more fun, and you will see and feel the benefits of your deeds!

If you want to find out how our team can teach you to change your mental attitude about your health, we can help. If you want to see measureable, repeatable methods that can systematically improve your fitness, your pain and your quality of life, we can help. We have a team of physicians and therapists that can show you the options you have to feel better, look younger, be lighter, and truly live your dreams! Your life’s enjoyment has a foundation of great health and the healthier you are, the more you will be able to contribute to your family, your career, your church, school and community. When you are ready to live your dreams, we’re here for you. 970-686-9117

Restore Healthy Bones Without Drugs | Windsor Colorado

Windsor Chiropractor | Osteoporosis  Bone HealthThe United States surgeon General has recommend weight bearing exercise for patient suffering from osteopenia and osteoporosis. The recommendation goes on to state that Maximal load bearing is an effective non-pharmaceutical approach to healthier bone density, mass, strength, and durability. However in the weight lifting and athletic worlds, most of these patients would find themselves in an unsafe position of lifting and moving weights so heavy they increase risk of injury to joints, tendons, ligaments and muscles.

Lifting maximal weights in patients with bone loss is simply not feasible and daily walking, aerobic fitness, even light weight lifting, although beneficial for the heart, does not show appreciable gains in bone mass over time and most of the patients who attempt to stop the progress of bone loss must eventually succumb to medications that have, In many cases, terrible side effects.

Patients that have adverse reaction to the medication of feel very much at a loss of how they can prevent fractures that can come from the simplest bumps. We have had patient fracture ribs from sneezing, have had small falls on relatively soft surfaces lead to hip, wrist, shoulder, and spinal fractures. Once the fractures start, surgery is invariable necessary and the 5 year survival rate plummets from the fracture, subsequent deconditioning, any surgical complications, and other factors, such as diabetes, obesity, smoking and weakened immunity.

Fortunately there is a solution to the apparent lack of treatment that many patients with bone loss are dealing with. That solution does not require heavy weight lifting, it has minimal risk and it is conveniently available in Windsor! Biodensity™ is the treatment of choice that want to improve their bone, improve their muscle mass and strength and the results are felt and seen very quickly!

Biodensity™ developed by John Jaquish, Ph.D. is an amazing breakthrough device designed to safely treat bone loss, but the other side improvements that come from regular use of this machine are amazing. We have patient double, triple and even quadruple their measurable strength in a short period of time and we have seen seniors suffering with osteoporosis and fearful of falling improve dramatically under our treatment. Improvements in muscle mass, strength, and bone are predictable, repeatable outcomes with use of the Biodensity™.

Tony Robbins personally endorses the Biodensity™ and many busy professionals are able to see strength and muscle improvements in just a few short weeks on the program. Anyone who is short on time also appreciates the machine because a treatment is less than 10 minutes and the frequency is only 1-4 times per month!

IF you want to know how strong you really and want to see what your body is capable, look no further than Benchmark Medical Group. We are located between Loveland, Fort Collins and Greeley and are easily accessible one-stop-shop for all of your healthcare needs.

Is gravity murdering your joints?

Is gravity murdering your joints?

Example of the amazing results!
Example of the amazing results!

Do you suffer with low back pain and stiffness every time you stand up?  Are you limping or favoring one leg because of pain or stiffness?  Do you have one-sided ankle, knee or hip pain that just never seems to go away?  Do you look in the mirror and see that one shoulder is lower than the other?

Unfortunately, unless you are an astronaut slated to head toward the International Space Station, you must contend with gravity at all times.  Gravity keeps us planted to the earth, and it also plays a very significant role in growth and development of the bones and tissues of the body.  If you are not symmetrical, the pressure that is created simply from your normal daily activities can set you up for pain, suffering and eventually disability.

We are meant to be symmetrical creatures, two eyes, ears, arms and legs.  This symmetry is important for attractiveness, and plays an important part in how we function in the world.  Unfortunately, trauma, genetics and poor postural and gait habits can make us lose our symmetry and the results can be disastrous.  Knee pain and degeneration can prevent you from playing sports, exercising, or even carrying your laundry down the stairs.  Hip pain and degeneration can make it hard to move around and may eventually require hip replacement if the degeneration gets too bad.  Low back pain is an epidemic, affecting nearly 80% of the population at any given time.  All of this pain and suffering reduces quality of life, and leads to disabling conditions that wreck our enjoyment.

Legs are meant to be symmetrical, and if you have one leg that is shorter than the other because of growth or injury during the teen years, this inequality can place abnormal pressures on muscles, tendons and discs and can lead to pelvic and spinal muscles being weak and imbalanced.  These weak and unbalanced muscles can cause pressures on pain-sensitive ligaments, tendons, bone, and discs and can lead to accelerated degeneration of the joint involved.  Eventually the imbalance will created stresses and strains great enough to cause the tissues to deform and they will degenerate even more. Abnormal posture hurts!

Fortunately, at Benchmark Medical Group, located in Windsor in Northern Colorado,  we have the tools to detect leg length differences and can prescribe the proper heel lifts or orthotics to remedy the situation.  Many patients report much less pain and better gait and function simply by placing a small lift in the shoe!  The analysis requires a very specific x-ray and measurement to determine the exact amount of leg length difference and once we have this information, specific exercises and therapies can be applied to get you back to symmetry!

power-plateIf we find these differences in young adults and teens, we can often prevent pain and dysfunction with early intervention.  However, if the leg length problem is long standing, muscles tendons and ligaments have most likely adapted to the abnormal position and this may necessitate rehabilitation.  Fortunately, we have many different methods to get muscles and joints working properly again. We have an Alter-G  anti-gravity treadmill than can re-train your gait while removing the pressure of gravity.  We have Power Plate® Physical therapy that can get your small stabilizing muscles around the spine hips and legs working properly again and a team of therapists who can assist you in safely rehabilitating your body.

If the degeneration is extensive, we have some very cutting-edge treatments that can not only lessen pain but can actually re-generate your joints and soft tissues.  Injections of Surpartz® into reduced joint space can improve cushion and lessen pain.  Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy involves removing  some of your own blood, processing the plasma with your own platelets and re-injection into the damaged tissues.  This PRP therapy effectively allows you to use your own cells to accelerate healing and regeneration of the tissues with little to no side effects and tremendous safety considering it is your own plasma being injected.

We have traction and CBP® rehabilitation therapies that can remove pressure from compressed lumbar spine discs and joints, remove pressure from the delicate nerves of the spine and get better pain-free range of motion.  We also have an incredibly effective weight loss program to lessen the loads on all of your joints a get you looking and feeling your best. Plus our amazing K-Laser can assist in healing time, improve circulation and reduce pain, often in just a few treatments!

If you are suffering with pain, what are you waiting for?  Call us today to see if you are candidate for our amazing treatments and to receive a screening to determine if 8qKHyVDyour pain and other health conditions are caused or complicated by an leg-length inequality.  Why suffer?  Call Now!

Do you want to rejuvenate your body? PRP and the secret tools at Benchmark Medical Group can!

benefitsofb12Do you want to rejuvenate your body?

Are you feeling tired all the time?  Do you look in the mirror and see someone that is not the real you?  Do you have no energy at the end of the day and struggle to find joy in your life?  Have you put on 20, 30, 50 or more pounds since you graduated high school? This obesity is often coupled with pain and that pain can become chronic and debilitating.

Pain leads to you not wanting to move your body.  The obesity, low energy and loss of motivation often cause negative, self-destructive thoughts.  Those depressive and destructive thoughts make you seek out activities that make you feel good.  Unfortunately, most of those feel good activities are also self-destructive and you may turn to alcohol, drugs, and food to feel better.  This vicious cycle of eating, drinking, pain and weight gain lead to a reduced quality of life and more pain and suffering. Eventually, you can’t reach your life goals.

Are you ready to stop the cycle?  Are you committed to feeling good without fatty, sugary food, endlessalcoholic drinks, and drugs that only make us forget our pain temporarily?

Is SUGAR causing your knee pain?!?

Many people with pain rarely understand the concept that the foods they consume and the nutritional choices they make play a very significant role in the creation of pain in the body.  People often get discouraged when I have to inform them that the single most important step they can take in reducing pain is reevaluating and changing their eating habits.  Fortunately, there is real scientific evidence to support the fact that sugar bound to red blood cells is important not only in the risk of developing diseases like diabetes, but also in inflammation; and this process is reversible with the right lifestyle choices!

The process where the body attaches sugar to tissues is called Glycation.  This Glycation is important for cells to carry glucose for energy into cells so the cells can do their jobs and work.  However, with the typical diet, there is an overload of sugar and carbohydrates and this Glycation becomes excessive.  Normally, when the blood sugar increases, the pancreas produces insulin and as long as the cells are still sensitive to this insulin, the sugar is broken down.  However, with over consumption of sugar, the sensitivity to insulin decreases and the blood sugar is allowed to remain higher than it should.  As this free-circulating sugar is travelling with the blood cells, the cells attract the sugar like a magnet and the level of glycosylated hemoglobin increases.  Eventually this increase leads to type two diabetes with its consequences of increased thirst, poor wound healing, confusion, dementia and eventual death.

The secondary consequence of too much Glycation or sugar attached to tissues is that this process produces inflammation in the body! Inflammation is normally found Knee_1in the presence of injury, trauma and infection, but in this case the body is inflamed without an outlet, like a virus or bacteria to kill.  This unregulated inflammation will eventually find its way to all tissues of the body and previously injured tissues will remain painful long after they should have healed, tissues that are loaded by excess body fat will compress sensitive pain nerve ending and produce pain and the pain and inflammation cycle will spiral until multiple muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints are affected and the pain becomes more widespread.

I know that it is not the easiest concept to understand that the sugar and carbohydrates in our breads, pasta, rice, fruits and veggies, and processed foods are the underlying cause of your pain, but the scientific understanding of pain verifies this extensively. We further see evidence of this in our clinical evaluation of patients in pain who remove the majority of the carbohydrates from their diet and see great reductions in knee pain, back pain, neck pain headaches and more simply by changing what they eat.

If you would like to know where your pain is coming from and the steps you can take to reduce or eliminate pain from your life, what are you waiting for?  We have a team of physicians and therapists at Benchmark Medical in Windsor, Colorado that will work with you to understand your particular health conditions and move you
toward better overall health and wellness.  Why suffer any longer?  Call us today!
