Here at Good Chiropractic and Wellness Center, we like to take a forward-thinking approach to treating our patients throughout Pleasanton, CA. One way we achieve this is by focusing on the latest chiropractic trends and then bringing them into our practice. As one of our current or prospective patients, we want to help you learn more about what’s happening in the chiropractic industry.

The ACORN project is gathering data on chiropractic treatment for headaches

As one of the largest studies of its kind, the ACORN project is gathering data on the use of chiropractic treatments for headaches. In addition to collecting information from data, the researchers are examining the perspectives and treatment outcomes from the practitioners’ point of view too.

At Good Chiropractic and Wellness Center, we’re already committed to helping patients such as yourself recover from headaches. Spinal manipulation is ideal for alleviating the pain that comes with migraines, which are renowned for their limited response to conventional medical therapies. Additionally, as chiropractors, we often find that our patients are holding a lot of tension in their shoulders, which then results in neck and shoulder-related headaches. Using our treatment plans and lifestyle advice, you can reduce your incidence of headaches.

Chiropractic practitioners are tackling America’s opioid problem

One of the primary reasons America’s opioid problem has reached its current state is the over-reliance on pain medication. Specifically, opioid-based analgesics. While some milder forms don’t have much scope for causing addiction, others can become fatal.

At Good Chiropractic and Wellness Center, we’re following the lead of our fellow practitioners and recommending more natural approaches to pain relief. Unlike opioid-based analgesics, chiropractic care can deliver relief from ongoing pain without increasing your risk of addiction. Whether you have a history of using addictive substances or you’re worried about the consequences of turning to opiate-based pain medication, we’re happy to help you.

Supporting former military personnel

One area of medical care where preventing the use of opioid analgesics has become especially important involves treating former military personnel. Those who have served in our military may encounter injuries that result in long-lasting pain. Additionally, as they recover from mental traumas they may be more vulnerable to addiction formation. Recent bi-partisan legislation has broadened access to chiropractic care for former military personnel. This is something our Pleasanton CA team supports.

Finding a fitness activity that supports your weight and fitness level

Excellent chiropractors will always work with their patients to help them understand how they can help themselves. At Good Chiropractic and Wellness Center, our chiropractors in Pleasanton like to encourage fitness activities that support our patients’ weight and fitness goals.

Many people fail to maintain engagement with their fitness plans as they often aim for something that’s too challenging. Instead of trying to push yourself as hard as you can, you need to continuously push yourself beyond your current comfort level. That way, you’re always improving but you’re not significantly increasing your risk of injury.

As chiropractors, we can provide you with advice regarding your form and posture. Our tips for maintaining a steady posture while exercising can prevent injury, allowing you to get fit without experiencing pain. Getting fit has a significantly positive impact on your musculoskeletal system in several ways. When you weigh less, you automatically place less strain on your load-bearing joints. When it comes to regions such as your knees and ankles, this can prevent the need for joint replacement.
