Chiropractic First—Opioids Last

Lately drug abuse and related crimes are in the news daily.  The most common story  revolves around Heroin and Opioid use. Opioids are prescription medications that act on the nervous system to relieve pain.  They are commonly prescribed for pain relief or after surgery as patients recover.  They are highly addictive and therefore are in high demand both legally and illegally.  Because of the temporary nature of medications to treat pain,  patients need to continually look for sources for medication.  Many times people who have become addicted to Opioids turn to Heroin.  It is cheaper and easier to access than prescription medications….. And it is extremely dangerous. Pain management and […]

Chiropractic Care for Infants and Children

We are often asked “When should my child get their first adjustment?” and the answer is “As soon as possible!”  The very process of birth puts is very stressful on a newborn’s spine.  If you think about the pulling and twisting of a baby’s head during birth, it is not difficult to imagine that they would benefit from a chiropractic adjustment. Parents report babies eat and sleep better after adjustments.  Also chiropractic adjustments have very positive effects on constipation in infants (sometimes even before they leave the office)! The goal when adjusting infants is to give them the best start possible.  We want to align their spine and reduce the […]

Make 4 “Some” Resolutions

It is the season of resolutions. If you are like me, you have made the most common ones on an annual basis. I will lose weight, exercise more, be more organized, and save more money. But this year I challenge you to make “some” resolutions that could be life changing. 1. Learn SOME-thing — it is easy to get into a rut and do the same things over and over. This year challenge yourself to learn something new. Learn a new craft or hobby. Learn how to do something new on your computer or smart phone. Learn a foreign language or how to cook new food. By learning new things […]

Nutrition by Color

  We have been told our whole lives to “eat our vegetables” so that we would grow up to be big and strong! But science today has shown that eating a healthy diet is about more than physical appearance. Research is showing that there is a connection between our physical AND MENTAL health, and our diet. It has been shown that variety and color in your fruits and vegetables is a true key to good health. And nature has made this easier than you would imagine….. Different nutrients create different colors in foods they are in, so while it is good to know WHY each different color family is good […]

Inflammation and Chronic Disease

There are two main types of Inflammation—Acute and Chronic.  Acute is the type that results from injury, such as a sprained ankle.  Acute Inflammation serves as direct response in the healing process.  Chronic Inflammation on the other hand is very destructive to your health. Some examples of Chronic diseases are degenerative arthritis, heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, obesity and digestive problems.  Many diseases today may seem unrelated, but the underlying cause is Chronic Inflammation. While there are many causes of Chronic Disease, Dr. Jerry recommends a three pronged approach for reducing the destructive and sometimes debilitating effects of inflammation. Clean Up Your Diet Over processed foods, sugary […]

Introducing Cold Laser Therapy

We are introducing our patients at Tyjeski Family Chiropractic to the new Erchonia Cold Laser.  This is a new treatment approved by the FDA that combats both chronic and acute pain using the power of light. In contrast to the high-power, high-heat lasers that are used in various surgical procedures, Erchonia lasers produce a low-level, or cold, output that has no thermal effect on the body’s tissue.  Instead, the laser serves to stimulate biological function similar to photosynthesis in plants. Dr. Jerry comments, “We know our patients will benefit from this exciting technology.  Treating chronic pain noninvasively with low level lasers instead of prescription drugs or surgery is the future […]

Your Vital Connection

Have you ever stopped to realize how amazing your body is?  It has the ability to heal itself after a cut or bruise.  It lets you know if it is cold, hot, tired, stressed or happy.  How does that happen? Your body possesses something often referred to as innate intelligence.  Simply defined, that is the body’s ability to organize itself to live, grow, and thrive.  Your body elevates your heart rate during exercise, and then returns it to resting rate again.  In send adrenaline when you need to “fight or flight”, and it even makes  your nose run when you have a cold to help carry germs out of your […]

Survive or Thrive

In an era of “Be all that you can be”, why do we settle for less with our health?  We ignore a headache, backache or fatigue and work through it. Sometimes we just survive.  We just get through the day, and perseverance becomes our motto. If left unattended our base level of health can decline.  Slowly we give up the things we love because we are tired, headachy, stressed, and stiff/sore.  Our body has gone into survival mode and we are slowly acclimated to a life of less. But during our lifetime we are meant to more than survive, we are meant to thrive. Chiropractic can help you feel your […]
