Tallahassee Chiropractors, Dr. Dennis Fiorini and Dr. Atkinson, Helps Alleviate Pain from Headaches

Posted in Press Releases tagged , , at 8:12 pm by dennisfiorini

Headaches? Patients who are constantly popping pills for headaches should check out a different approach – a qualified chiropractor who can get to the root cause of the pain and relieve it naturally.

The Fiorini Chiropractic Center is pleased to offer the Atlas Orthogonal technique, a program designed to fix misalignments of the upper vertebrae in the cervical spine. What does this have to do with headaches?

It is becoming more and more obvious that many cases of chronic headache are, in fact, caused by problems in the neck. The head weighs between 9 and 14 pounds and that weight puts strain on the neck, and it does not take much to knock it out of alignment. This can cause misalignment further down the body and can even make one leg appear shorter than the other. It can also cause chronic tension headaches. Headaches can also be caused by sprains and strains of the muscles in the neck.

Dr. Atkinson and Dr. Fiorini are both trained in this technique. Additionally, they are trained in a holistic approach designed to promote wellness. They can offer nutrition advice. In the case of neck and spine problems, they can also offer advice on posture, simple exercises to help recovery, and ergonomics. For example, neck misalignments can often be caused by the way a patient sleeps, and this Tallahassee chiropractor may suggest a different pillow or a cervical support pillow to prevent the misalignment – and the headaches – from simply coming back after the office visit.

Chronic headaches can really interfere with a person’s life. People who feel as if they are spending their life popping headache pills should consider a visit to the Fiorini Chiropractic Center to see if the root of their problems is, in fact, in their neck.

Understand How a Tallahassee Chiropractor Helps Neck Pain

Posted in Articles tagged , , at 5:34 pm by dennisfiorini

Chiropractors have a stellar record in providing natural relief for neck pain. A Tallahassee chiropractic doctor will take a drug-less, natural approach to help their patients get relief from neck pain. It is recommended that you see a chiropractor for your neck pain if stiffness or pain does not go away in a few days, if you can’t look left or right without feeling severe neck pain, if you’re convinced that you have to use over-the-counter medications just to be able to make it through the day, or if you’re concerned that there might be a serious cause of your pain. You should also see a chiropractor if the pain that started in your neck has now progressed to causing tingling or numbness in your wrists or hands, and if the pain you are experiencing in your neck is worse first thing in the morning, but begins to feel a bit better as the day goes on. Here are some of the many benefits of receiving chiropractic care for neck pain:

  • Chiropractic adjustments frequently result in faster recovery for neck pain and low back pain than general practitioner care or physiotherapy. Add to this the fact that patients who were treated by a chiropractor paid only one third of the cost of general practitioner care or physiotherapy
  • A Tallahassee chiropractic doctor will aid in restoring motion to your stiff joints only after x-rays and a physical exam are done to rule out any other cause for your neck pain. Frequent therapies will include physiotherapy, specific neck exercises, and chiropractic adjustments
  • A chiropractor will ask you about the history of your neck pain, and which things make it feel better and which things make it feel worse. He will also look for tingling, tenderness, or numbness in your hands or arms
  • A Tallahassee chiropractic doctor is well trained to address neck pain caused by a whiplash injury, a fall, or pain caused by lifting. He knows that any abnormal motion may cause the vertebra in your neck to shift out of alignment and muscles to become overextended. Through gentle manipulation, re-alignment of the vertebra, and ice or heat therapy, the doctor knows what treatments will provide pain relief for you
  • Between each of the vertebra in your neck are discs (which are gel-like pillows that give cushioning between each vertebrae) and nerves. When your vertebra become unaligned, they can “pinch” the nerves that exist between them, and this is a primary cause of your neck pain. Pinched nerves happen when you keep your neck in an awkward position for too long of a time period (like when you’re painting your ceiling), when you have poor posture (like when you sit hunched over your phone all day), when you always use a flat pillow or constantly sleep on your stomach, or when you get a whiplash or fall off a ladder and your neck becomes forced beyond its’ typical range of motion

For all of the reasons mentioned above, now is the time to contact a Tallahassee Chiropractic doctor to schedule an appointment or a consultation. Fiorini Chiropractic Center provides excellent chiropractic care in the Tallahassee Area and would be happy to be of service if you’re in need of care.

Tallahassee Chiropractors, Dr. Dennis Fiorini and Dr. Atkinson, Provides Relief for Concussion Sufferers

Posted in Press Releases tagged , , at 11:46 pm by dennisfiorini

Post concussion syndrome happens when symptoms last more than 7 to 10 days after the initial accident or injury. These symptoms can include headaches and dizziness/vertigo. In some cases, these symptoms can last for months, years, or even the rest of the person’s life.
Although chiropractic care cannot fix damage to the brain, it can help the body enter a healthy state that encourages the brain to repair itself. Dizziness and vertigo can be treated with chiropractic care that helps keep the spine aligned, and with advice on exercises and stretches that help the body regain its sense of balance. This is called vestibular rehabilitation therapy. Combined with physical therapy, this can reduce symptoms of dizziness over time and help the patient regain their mobility. Concussion can also be associated with whiplash, which causes damage to the neck that can be painful, and can also be resolved with chiropractic.
Upper body and neck manipulation is known to relieve headaches, including those caused by concussions. It helps return balance to the nervous system, which can then reduce the swelling in the brain that is the root cause of the symptoms. This kind of care can reduce stubborn symptoms that often resist more traditional approaches. Also, a chiropractor can monitor symptoms and progress and help an athlete return to play in a quicker, but also safer manner, by making sure they do not return to play before they are ready, whilst helping resolve symptoms faster.
Young athletes in particular can be hard to convince to comply with a rehabilitation program, whilst taking longer to recover than adults.
Dr. Atkinson, a Tallahassee chiropractor, can help resolve concussion symptoms and get a patient back to full activity faster. Concussion victims should Fiorini Chiropractor for a consultation and find out what they can do to help problems such as lingering dizziness or headaches that persist several weeks after the accident.

Motor Vehicle Accident Victims Find Relief with a Tallahassee Chiropractor

Posted in Articles tagged , , at 10:31 am by dennisfiorini

When you are involved in a motor vehicle accident, no matter how slow your vehicle was going or the circumstances there are three things you need to as soon as possible.

  • Seek medical attention
  • Call your attorney
  • See your chiropractor

It does not take a whole lot of pressure to push your spinal vertebrae out of position. A sudden pushing and pulling, of the spine and neck, start a domino effect with the rest of your body and the skeletal structure it supports.

It does not take too much to cause misalignment of your spine, something as simple as turning your body sideways to exit a car can cause misalignment of the spine if not done correctly. Did you know that there is a right and wrong way to exit your vehicle?

Now you can understand how a car accident can mess your back up. A misalignment of the spine applies puts pressure on the nerves running through the center of the spine.

Whiplash a Common Car Accident Injury

The neck is especially at high risk for injury even in a minor car accident. You only have to go five to ten miles per hour to cause some real neck problems in the form of a whiplash. A whiplash is most prevalent when another vehicle hits your car from behind. This kind of jerking of the neck causes injury to the muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

Whiplash is a common occurrence in any motor vehicle accident. Most times the hospital or primary doctor tells you that the symptoms go away in a few day, and there is nothing you can do except weather the storm. But, too frequently symptoms do not go away and get worse.

Sometimes you may feel okay, pain-free, and the next day you feel like a truck ran over your body. Possible post-accident trauma is the reason you need to see a chiropractor even if you have no pain or visual injury after a car accident. Some symptoms you may see arise after your car accident is as follows.

  • Neck and shoulder pain
  • Inability to move your neck to the left or right without a lot of pain
  • Blurred vision
  • Swelling in the neck, shoulder, and back
  • Dizziness
  • Headache

What to Expect at Your First Chiropractic Visit After Your Accident

  • Health assessment
  • Location of pain, duration of pain, type of pain
  • Spinal X-ray
  • Physical examination of the spine
  • Measurements of your range of motion of your extremities
  • Expect a series of appointments

Everyone who visits a chiropractor is individual in symptoms, pain, complaints, health issues, problems, and options for care. Your plan of care goes hand in hand with your unique, distinct self. Once your chiropractor sets your plan of care in motion, the doctor may appoint all or some of the following options for you, to help ease your pain.

  • Neck collar
  • Hot compresses
  • Cold compresses
  • NSAIDS
  • Tens Units
  • Massage therapy
  • Exercises
  • Spinal adjustments

Years ago the chiropractic doctor was not recognized by the traditional medical community as a valuable asset. Within the last several years the chiropractor is shown sitting at the pinnacle of successful treatment options when traditional medicine fails to ease pain and suffering of the patient, except by invasive surgical procedures and drugs with its many side effects.

After an automobile accident you need to seek medical attention, contact an advocate, call your lawyer, and call your Tallahassee Chiropractic www.fiorinichiropractic.com as soon as possible to make that first post-accident exam. Visit this Tallahassee chiropractor for up-to-date care options and healing. Do not delay one more day when possible.

Tallahassee Chiropractors, Dr. Dennis Fiorini And Dr. Atkinson, Offers Solutions For Neck Pain Sufferers

Posted in Press Releases tagged , , at 10:04 am by dennisfiorini

PRESS RELEASE: Tallahassee FL, 18-JULY-2016 – Fiorini Chiropractic Center, Dr. Dennis Fiorini and Dr. Atkinson, DC., are pleased to announce that they offer solutions for neck pain sufferers. The Tallahassee chiropractic professionals use natural and non-invasive methods to alleviate the pain and to promote the body’s ability to heal itself. The doctors employ personalized care plans to speed the process of recovery.

Pain in the neck is often the result of a misalignment of the cervical spine. When there is an impingement of the nerves or the intervertebral discs, the result is pain. The subluxations in the spinal column can also create tingling, weakness, and pain in the arms and shoulders. The initial actions of the chiropractors are to identify the cause of the pain so that a plan can be designed to provide solutions for pain relief.

A chiropractic adjustment will restore alignment to the spinal column and relieve the pressure which is registered as pain by the brain. Once the vertebrae are aligned, the pressure on the nerve roots is relieved and the electrical signals can move freely from the brain to the extremities.

Soft tissue recovery from pain can be improved through techniques such as massage, electrotherapy, and ultrasound. These methods are designed to improve circulation in the area of irritated or damaged tissues. The circulatory system is intended to carry the blood and building blocks of nutrition to tissues so that they can become rebuilt at the cellular level. Good circulation also improves the removal of damaged cells and toxins from the body.
