Carpal Tunnel Pain Helped with Natural Pain Relief Gel, Study Shows

A recent study showed that biofreeze natural pain relief gel decreased chronic pain and symptoms associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome by as much as 31%. The study conducted in Copenhagen Denmark studied the effects of a placebo cream vs biofreeze on workers in a slaughterhouse.

The Median nerve in the wrist contributes to carpal tunnel syndrome often. When the nerve becomes entrapped due to inflammation of the wrist tissues, a person can have resulting wrist and hand pain. Often people get this type of wrist pain with repetive movement or overusing their wrist.

One of the main ingredients in Biofreeze is menthol. It has helped patients also with arthritis in the knee, neck pain, and lower back pain. Mechanism is through cold therapy where the menthol activates cold receptors to decrease pain.

Open Up Those Sinuses!

Sept 2014 I just saw Dr Oz showing the NetiPot for cleaning out your nose. I can't tell you the benefits of this. If you are doing it before bed, do it 10 minutes or so before because you'll probably need to blow your nose a few times... The pillow will help to open up those sinuses but if they're really clogged, try this.

Keeping your Spine in Alignment Helps Boost your Immune System


            Your spinal cord and nervous system is the most important system in your body.  This is why it’s encased in bone.  Think about this, your central nervous system; it’s like the hard drive of your computer.  If it goes, you’re in big trouble.
            The CNS (Central Nervous System) consists of your brain and spinal cord.  This control center helps run your other body functions like your digestive system, circulatory system, and immune system, to name a few. 
            We could go on for days and elaborate on all the necessary functions and what kind of problems you can have if these body components are disturbed, but today I wanted to focus on the immune system.  This time of year when there are so many colds and viruses going around, it is of utmost importance you keep your body functioning at its best. 
            Studies have shown us that regular chiropractic adjustments boost your immune system up to 40%.  That’s where our cervical linear traction pillow comes in!  Just like an adjustment, this pillow helps improve neck posture and maintain healthy alignment.  This alignment is absolutely vital because if alignment is good, then there’s no unwanted stress on the nervous system.  Therefore, important body communications can be made at 100%; and that means your immune system will work at its best.  Putting pressure on the nerves disrupts things in the body and leads to poor health. 
            Take an active role in staying healthy this year.  Start by keeping your neck in prefect alignment, it is essential in keeping your body at its best.

I'm A Stomach Sleeper? Is The Pillow For Me?

The special "V" design of the pillow helps to hold one on their back.  Stomach sleeping isn't great for your neck.  I do see patients that sleep on their stomach, and they will be in periodically with the complaint of neck pain.

We don't have the range of motion we once did when we were 2 years old.  You know how you see babies on their belly all the time... For adults however, it is difficult to maintain a 90 degree turn of the neck for most of the night.

This is why those individuals will present every so often with a neck issue.  The traction pillow actually will help one stay on their back.  It is for back or side sleepers and has helped many with this issue.

Sleep Hygiene - Whats That?


Sleep hygiene is just what the words imply...Essentially we want you to have good sleep habits.

Do you relax before bed? Don't be on the computer working right up until bed time.  Make sure you turn your mind down, maybe listening to relaxing music or taking a hot bath.

Is your room sleep friendly?  Is your bedroom dark and quiet, like it should be, or are there flashing lights and ring tones constantly going off?

Do you refrain from eating a lot before bed, and/or eating or drinking certain beverages.  An example may be coffee or caffeine, or maybe sugar.   If you have that hot fudge sunday, it's okay, just don't do it immediately before hitting the sack.

Do you go to bed at a similar time each night, and do you sleep a similar amount of time?  Going to bed and waking at all different times can really throw the body and therefore wreak havoc on the way you sleep.

Last, but not least, have you found a good pillow that lasts?  If not, try the Arc4Life traction pillow.  In other words, The Cervical Linear Traction Neck Pillow; you'll be happy you did...
