Stop Text Neck before it’s too late!

Let’s say it’s a picture that dropped your jaw with wonder. It’s the best picture you’re seen of your daughter’s 4th grade Birthday party. Or that perfectly timed catch your teenage son made on the football field. Or you’re received the best text of your life and have to respond with every emoticon that fully describes how outstanding it was! Or the perfect blogpost that you want to finish before the end of the shift. Or you’ve spent way too much time on Facebook or playing your teenage son’s PlayStation all weekend long.

Face it, we are all spending more and more time on machines that are making our world closer to each other with technology, more beautiful (sometimes) and so interesting and fascinating that we now have access to information that no generation before us has had. Faster and faster every day.

Posture Is Important

But how often do you stop and look at yourself while you’re using the device in your hand, or how you look when you are slumping over your computer all day? When was the last time you saw a picture of you posture while you are slouching on the couch watching a marathon of Netflix movies? Unfortunately, our abnormal posture for hours on end has serious consequences and those consequences include neck pain and “text Neck. This is the consequence of having our head tilted down and bent and shifted forward while we shift our ribs backwards and make our shoulder round instead of upright like they should be. This posture eventually overwhelms the muscles, tendons ligaments, bone and nerves and the result is neck and head pain and upper back and arm and had pain as well as the sharp burning pains that feel like hot knives in between our shoulders that can lead to severe pain, disability and needless suffering with illness and poor health.

If you are suffering, you really must ask yourself these questions,

  1. What am doing to cause this pain?
  2. When is my posture poor?
  3. What can I do with my job positions and computers, devices and other technology that will reduce the total time in abnormal postures?
  4. Who can help?

The answers are,

1) Your Pain Is Caused By Nerves

Your pain is caused by nerves that are recognizing abnormal loads damaging stresses and firing sensations to your brain that you perceive as pain. Your body is trying to communicate with your brain to tell you that your positions are causing stresses and strains and this is leading to tissue damage. Stop the ongoing tissue damage and the pain will lessen if you haven’t had it too long. If you catch this pain and abnormal tissue soon enough, the pain often goes away completely. If you wait too long it can become permanent and chronic!

2) Your Posture Might Be Distorted

Your posture is poor anytime you are shifted or twisted or bent or stretched in a position away from normal for a prolonged period of time. If the posture is very distorted, it can only be a few seconds before your body will tell you to stop, but if it’s an insidious posture like text neck, it can cause slow damage over time leading to permanent abnormal posture. When your posture is normal, your head sits over your torso, your torso is over your pelvis and right above the mid-point in between your feet. From the side, normal posture is the ear lined up with the shoulder, the shoulder in line with the hips and the hips over the ankles.

Your posture is likely poor when you sit in front of a laptop, when you use a tablet or large phone for videos, texts threads, and surfing and its likely you don’t realize how much time you are spending like in abnormal postures. It’s likely you have poor posture if you ride a motorcycle, drive a truck for extended periods or work in many of the trades and industrial fields. Factory workers are at risk of posture-caused pain and suffering as are nurses, surgeons, therapists and veterinarians. Poor posture lurks on the trains we ride in the planes we fly in and those not-so-luxurious beds that we find in our hotels across the country. Poor posture is epidemic and the consequences are with neck pain and low back pain being some of the biggest reasons for disability in the world!

3) Be Aware Of Your Posture & Position

You can reduce the time in abnormal postures by first being aware of you position as frequently as possible. Doing a “posture check” to see how your body is positioned can begin to condition you to make good posture a habit. If you begin to work on your posture when you cook, brush your teeth, sit in the car on the way to work, and how you sit at the office, stand at your station, or whatever you may do, your awareness of better posture habits will begin to “work” on improving your posture, but you will need to be dedicated and check in frequently.

Unfortunately, most people who try to change their posture find that they are “stuck” in the abnormal posture and sitting up straight causes more pain, causes muscles to fatigue and acts as a negative reinforcement against improving posture. This vicious cycle will eventually lead to pain in both good postures and bad and can become permanent pain with suffering and disability as the end result.

Headaches and Lost Time

drinkingwater
I have had many, many patients report headaches over the years.  It is quite common for people to state that they have a headache 3 times per week that lasts a couple hours.  They call them their “normal” headaches.  I am frequently told that because of these “normal” headaches, they find themselves more moody, less likely to exercise,  less likely to be intimate with their partner, and the headaches make them more irritable with their kids and co-workers.

In calculating the amount of time that has been consumed by these “normal” headaches,we find that  3 times per week is six hours of pain,  six hours of pain per week calculates to 312 hours per year. If a person suffers from headaches like this for 15 years, that equates to 4680 hours or 195 days!!

This means that if you are getting “normal” headaches a few times a week for a decade, you have lost more than ½ year of precious time that you can never get back!  Imagine how much more fulfilling your life could be if you had not been suffering, how many more experiences you could have had and how much deeper and more enriching your life could be without the burden of headaches!

First, there are no “normal” headaches.  Headaches and other pain in your body is usually an indication that something is wrong.  This could be something like dehydration or poorly conditioned muscles, poor diet, previous trauma or nutritional and food sensitivities. The cause could be poor posture, poor joint mechanics, degeneration or inability to control stress.  Whatever the cause of your headaches, the doctors at Benchmark Medical Group in Windsor, Colorado will work to determine what is causing your pain.

Second, why suffer?  Successful treatment and resolution of headaches and other pains are common for the therapists and doctors here at Benchmark.  We help people learn the triggers that may be causing their headaches and pain and we have pro-active steps that can be taken to achieve better range of motion, better nutrition, better posture and less pain and overall improvement in quality of life.

So, if you or someone you know is suffering from headaches or other forms of pain, if you are losing time that could be spent doing more and enjoying more, then we may have a solution for you!  Call today to ask about our amazing specials and to see how we at Benchmark can help you get the most out of life!

Life should be fulfilling, enriching and fun!  Not filled with stress, pain and suffering.  When is NOW the best time to get started feeling and looking better?  Call us, we can help.

Are you tired of being told,  “wait until you can’t take the pain anymore, then we’ll  do surgery.”  While you see your friends and family who have had back surgery continue to suffer and still find no relief despite the procedure.

Do you want diabetes to crush your dreams?

depression picDon’t let diabetes crush your dreams!

 

Diabetes is one of the fastest growing epidemics in the country.  The speed with which Americans are developing this disease is baffling.  Many people are finding out that they are pre-diabetic in their 20’s and 30’s in contrast to 30 years ago when most type 2 diabetes developed in a person’s 40’s and 50’s.  The reason behind this explosion of diabetes is the over-consumption of sugar.  Sugar is being consumed by Americans at unprecedented rates and this sugar addiction is leading to more and more cases of premature and preventable diabetes.

Diabetes causes so many health problems that they are almost too numerous to list.  Poor energy, bad circulation, loss of vision, poor sleep, pain, numbness and tingling, peripheral neuropathy, gangrene, and loss of balance and coordination are just a few of the many, many symptoms associated with the over consumption of sugar and diabetic conditions.

Diabetes can also affect brain cells and cause type 3 diabetes, better known as Alzheimer’s disease.  The attack on the nervous system can be devastating, leading to loss of identity, loss of memory and unbearable pain and suffering.  Amputation, complete vision loss and many other devastating consequences can happen when the sugar regulation is unchecked.  The consequences are almost always the same: a life of never ending doctors’ visits, unending medication prescription, self-injection of insulin, poor quality of life and crushed dreams and life goals.

Fortunately, there is a solution!  At Benchmark Medical Group in Windsor, Colorado we off many preventative programs to stop diabetes before it happens as well as numerous nutritional and therapeutic treatments for the condition once it has been established as a disease process.

Our team of medical doctors, nurses and therapists work to educate our patients on making the right food choices and we provide an alternative lifestyle treatment that that differs from the typical treatment for diabetes.  We have a long-term and caring approach that incorporates dietary and nutritional changes, exercise programs and evaluation of alternative treatments to re-regulate insulin naturally.  We often see a reduction in the need for insulin shots, medication and many, many of our previously diabetic patients have been taken off their prescription medication for diabetes by their prescribing providers because of the amazing diabetes reversing programs we have.

Our patients report less pain, more function, better sensation and feeling in the legs and feet, better energy, fewer breathing conditions, better vision, and most importantly, our patients are educated on how to make the correct food and lifestyle choices to get them moving toward a healthier and happier life!

If you or someone you know is suffering from diabetes, pre-diabetes, low energy, peripheral neuropathy, why suffer?  Call us today to see what our amazing packages and treatments can do to improve quality, reverse disease processes and get you moving toward the life you deserve.  Don’t suffer, call us today!PP Yoga Lady LOW RES

Longevity starts with healthy weight!

benefitsofb12Longevity starts with healthy weight!

 

Do you want to live a long a productive life?  Do you see yourself energetic, active and healthy late into life?  Do you know what your future holds and how much your weight and body composition play in achieving your goals?

Having a better body makes you feel good and look good.  It’s pretty obvious, when you are at a healthy weight  your clothes fit better, your joints don’t hurt and you have the energy, stamina and vitality that healthy weight brings easily.  If you have a healthy body fat percentage, BMI and healthy weight, you are less likely to die from the biggest killers of Americans! Heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes risk can all be lessened with improved body composition and a closer to normal weight.

But what is normal?  Fortunately, like other physiological measurements of blood pressure, pulse, respiration rate and blood sugar, normal body composition has also been established and getting to within these normal limits can give you a better quality of life, better life insurance rates, less pain, better digestion and overall better health!

Women should have a body fat percentage between 18-28%, men should be in the range of 10-20% body fat.  These body fat measurements are best found on very specialized equipment, like the InBody520 body composition analyzer that we have at Benchmark Medical Group.

If you have body fat that is above these recommended ranges, you will most likely experience joint pain, less energy, poor sex drive, and fatigue! Conversely, if you have body fat percentages below this range, you can damage you immune system, women can stop menstruation, and overall health can suffer.  Getting into the range will get you looking and feeling better and you will decrease your chance of premature death significantly!

If you are struggling with weight and want real scientific answers to your troubles, the medical weight loss program at benchmark may be just the solution you are looking for.  We have helped thousands of people get fit, toned, and  within normal weight limits using our scientific and repeatable program.

If you have tried other programs and lost weight, but put it back on as soon as the program finished, what did you really accomplish? We can teach you how to lose body fat quickly and safely, give you valuable information on food combining, recipes for delicious healthy food, and lifestyle nutrition support to get you to your goal body weight and keep it off!

What are you waiting for?  The days of tight clothes, poor energy, health risks and poor quality of life can quickly be a part of the distant Waist Sizepast!  Our program changes lives, are you ready to change yours?

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!
