Rehabilitative Exercise and Chiropractic Care

Patients, Friends, and Family:

Please view my recent presentation on rehabilitative exercise for the spine and low back and it’s role in chiropractic care.  There are seven short videos.  Please follow this link in Facebook for the first video.


Neck and Back pain

Friends and Patients:

Thank you for reading my new Health Newsletter email! Hopefully, this will be the beginning of a series of health tips that I will be providing you several times a month. Many of you have seen this picture in my office before.
When I show it to you during an examination it usually means that you are in pain and we are trying to figure out what happened. There are many causes of neck and low back pain, but typically a sprain injury or tearing of a ligament is the most common cause.
Just like sprain and ankle, the neck and back holding elements are subject to traumatic and overuse forces that cause pain, swelling, spasm and inability to function as normal.

Scar Tissue Formation:

Not responding to the injury with appropriate treatment can lead to scar tissue formation.
Look at those giant cross-bridges! The scar tissue in the above picture is ineffective in providing stability for the normal forces expressed on a joint. Future re-injury risk is high in this scenario!

Treatment at Corrado Chiropractic & Rehabilitation Center, LLC, consists initially of passive care with modalities and adjustments for proper re-establishment of healing tissues, improved motion from manipulation and stimulation of mechanoreceptors in the joints to provide neurological stimulation to correct the timing, patterning, and coordination of muscles that support the injured joint. We all feel that we are not moving correctly when we are in pain! Treatment works to alleviate this! Exercise and rehabilitation, after there has been a decrease in pain, is provided to help build endurance of Type 1 spinal muscles and again to stimulate mechanoreceptors with balance exercises for improved neurological control.

Happy to help.

Broccoli as a Cancer Fighter

Patients and Friends:

Don’t forget to eat your broccoli! Recent studies have shown that a chemical in broccoli called sulphoraphane can have anti-cancer activity with certain cancers. The best way to eat the broccoli is to maximize the sulphoraphane content by steaming it for 3-4 minutes. Remember to buy organic broccoli. Also, try raw organic broccoli sprouts in your salad to increase the sulphoraphane intake by about 50 times!

Effective Exercise (Aerobic vs. Anaerobic?) Part 4


So the previous 3 parts of this series involve comparing traditional aerobic exercise with anaerobic exercise or High Intensity Interval Training or HIIT.  Both forms have their benefits, but the stimulation of human growth hormone or HGH with HIIT maximizes health and strength and enables effective and quicker training results.  The following according to Slosberg and Mercola is a list of benefits from HIIT and raising HGH levels from 500-750%:

  • Massive breakdown of stored glycogen in Type 2a and 2b muscle fibers.
  • Increased insulin sensitivity.
  • Increase activation of hormone-sensitive lipase (fat breakdown enzyme) and breakdown of fats for energy.
  • Decreased insulin levels, blood sugar, blood fats, and blood pressure.
  • Increased production of muscle stem cells and synthesis of new muscle cells.
  • Increased muscle mitochondria production.
  • Increased neuronal (nerve) mitochondria.
  • Decreased biomarkers for diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
  • Anti-aging due to reduced shortening of telomeres (end caps) on your chromosomal DNA. (Telomeres shorten with factors such as smoking, obesity, and toxin exposure).
  • Improved muscle tone.
  • Increased athletic speed and performance.
  • Increased sexual libido.
  • Improved metabolism and increased energy levels.
  • Anti-aging features such as firmer skin and fewer wrinkles.
  • Improved aerobic capacity.
  • Weight loss.

I can tell you first hand the differences I have experienced with HIIT.  My workouts are much faster, I spend only 4 minutes total of hard exercise (although they are the most grueling 4 minutes).  I have had significant weight loss, especially at my waist which is important because waist diameter is an important indicator of future health and disease risk.  I can run 3 miles, no problem, up and down hills.  My aerobic capacity has improved even without aerobically training.  I have improved energy levels and drive.  My blood pressure is 116/66 mmHg.  My pulse rate is 66 beats/minute resting.  I have reached my maximum heart rate for my age at 173 beats/minute while training.  I have never felt better than I do now since grade school.  I do want to relay to all of you, however, that I did have a cardiac stress test first to determine my heart’s ability to withstand the stress of HIIT.  I also have had mild to moderate groin and hamstring strains from sprinting.  So, please be careful and use good sense for your health.  Enjoy HIIT and the benefits of increased HGH.
