DRSProtocol™

By Your Local Miami Beach Chiropractor - Dr.William Moyal, DC, CCSP

What is the DRS Protocol™?
DRS™ stands for Decompression, Reduction and Stabilization. The DRS Protocol™ is a comprehensive combination of treatments, which include axial/spinal decompression, and multiple therapies and utilizes "Patient Centered Healthcare."

What does the DRS Protocol™ help?
The DRS Protocol™ has been proven most effective for involved & chronic disc conditions: degenerative disc disease, herniated disc(s), numbness and tingling of the hands/arms and legs/feet, as well as sciatica, posterior facet syndrome, spinal stenosis and failed back and neck surgeries.

How Does DRS™ Work?
The DRS™ treatment applies an "axial" force to the injured disc levels. During treatment, the DRS™ protocol reduces pressure inside of the disc - this reduces the painful herniation and the pain from other disc-related degenerative conditions. We customize treatment for each patient's needs, as each patient's health and condition is individual.

Why Should I try the DRS™ Protocol?
The DRS™ treatment results in pressure reduction & increased blood flow to the injured area, reduction of pain, increased mobility, and tissue repair. In several research studies, conclusion indicated that for patients with appropriate amount of back & neck pain conditions, DRS™ is a "front-line, premier treatment."

Are You a Candidate for the DRS™ Protocol?

How Chiropractic Helps Your Heart

Most people are aware that diet and exercise are key components of preventing heart disease, however less people are aware that chiropractic treatment may also be used as a tool in the fight against heart disease.

In fact, researchhas shown that specific chiropractic adjustments of the upper cervical spine can have a positive effect on blood pressure!1

Other studies have shown that adjustment of the vertebrae in the neck and lower back can activate specific nervous system reflexes, leading to a decrease in overall heart rate and blood pressure.

So there you have it folks!

Regular chiropractic treatment combined with proper nutrition and exercise can prove to be a powerful ally in the fight against heart disease.

Suffering from Headaches?

 If You Suffer from Headaches, You are Not Alone...

Headaches are one of the most common conditions that enter the offices of physicians. The number of people who suffer from headaches every year is staggering, yet two-thirds of headache sufferers remain undiagnosed and in pain.

In fact the three main types of headaches, most often found in chiropractic offices are: migraine headache, tension headaches, & cervicogenic headaches (from the neck).

This is important because a recent Duke University study showed Chiropractic care helped these types of headaches both in headache frequency and severity. The study also confirmed that Chiropractic Care worked better than many other treatments.

Do you find yourself frequently taking over-the-counter medications such as Excedrin, Advil, Nuprin, Aleve or Tylenol?

"These types of drugs only serve to dull and hide the pain," Dr. William Moyal says, "they don't treat the cause, or source of pain, which is why the headache returns." With these common over-the-counter medications treating only the "symptoms" headache-suffers feel compelled to take more and more pain-relievers, subjecting them to the many harmful side effects these medications can cause.

The standard chiropractic treatment approach includes manual therapies such as spinal manipulation or adjustments, mobilization techniques, trigger point therapy, physiological therapeutics, digital x-ray and nutritional counseling etc.. With the chiropractic treatment option, you don't have to worry about negative side effects…only positive results!

We offer affordable relief care for your headache. If you'd like to see how we can help you like we have already helped so many others,

Coke vs Water

Water vs. Coke

This is an interesting article: We all know that water is important but I've never seen it written down like this before.

75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. (Likely applies to half of the world pop.)

In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for hunger. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as much as 3%.

One glass of water shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a U-Washington study.

Lack of water is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.

A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.

Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.

Are you drinking the amount of water you should every day?

COKE No wonder coke tastes soooo good: 

1. In many states (in the USA) the highway patrol carries two gallons of Coke in the truck to remove blood from the highway after a car accident. 

2. You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of coke and it will be gone in two days.
3. To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the toilet bowl and.......Let the "real thing" sit for one hour, then flush clean. The citric acid in Coke removes stains from vitreous china. 

4. To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers: Rub the bumper with a crumpled-up piece of Reynolds Wrap aluminum foil dipped in Coca-Cola. 

5. To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour a can of Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble away the corrosion.

6. To loosen a rusted bolt: Apply a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola to the rusted bolt for several minutes. 

7. To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coca-Cola into the baking pan, wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and bake. Thirty minutes before the ham is finished, Remove the foil, allowing the drippings to mix with the Coke for a sumptuous brown gravy. 

8. To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of coke into a load of greasy clothes, add detergent, and run through a regular cycle.

Coca-Cola will help loosen grease stains.

It will also clean road haze from your windshield.

FYI: 

1. The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. Its' pH is 2.8. It will dissolve a nail in about 4 days. 

2. To carry Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate) the commercial truck must use the Hazardous material place cards reserved for highly corrosive materials. 

3. The distributors of coke have been using it to clean the engines of their trucks for about 20 years!

Heat-Related Sports Injuries: When Athletes Are At Greatest Risk

Football season for high school and college students typically starts in September, one of the hottest months of the year around the US. A recent study conducted at the University of Georgia found that the likelihood of heat-related injury in athletes increased exponentially during this time of year. 

2 Times When the Risk of Sports Injuries Are the Highest

According to the study, researchers found that there were two times during training when athletes were at the highest risk for injuries.
 •  Within the first 3 to 14 days of practice, but the rate was much higher during the first three days
 •  On days seven and eight of pre-season training when athletes began practicing twice each day. 

Seventy-four percent of the college athletes evaluated suffered from heat cramps, while 26 percent suffered from a combination of heat syncope (fainting) and heat exhaustion. The highest risk came when outdoor temperatures were greater than 82 degrees. 

Common Symptoms of Heat-Related Sports Injuries

Coaches, trainers, parents and athletes should all be on the lookout for injuries related to higher temperatures. Symptoms include: 
 •  Heat Cramps: Involuntary spasms within the larger muscle groups. 
 •  Heat Exhaustion: Heat cramps, copious sweating, nausea, vomiting, headache and weakness. 
 •  Heat Stroke: Headache, rapid heart rate and breathing, nausea, vomiting, and altered behavior or mental state. 

Chiropractors: Helping Prevent Heat-Related Injury in Athletes

Chiropractors, as well as sports trainers, play an important role in preventing sports injuries during the summer training period. They can educate athletes on the importance of adequate hydration and rest. Additionally, they can demonstrate relaxation and flexibility techniques that can be used to relieve muscle spasms. When athletes and their sports medicine team, including chiropractors, work together they can prevent injuries and have a productive and healthy football season.

Are Trampoline Parks Safe for Kids?

When a new trampoline park opens up, emergency rooms and pediatric centers nearby are sure to notice an increase in related injuries. The safety concerns of trampolines are no secret, accounting for over 100,000 injuries each year.1  These injuries can range from mild to severe, from sprains and bruises to life-threatening spine and neck injuries. There's even a recoil injury doctors are all-too-familiar with: it’s called a "trampoline fracture," which is a tibial fracture commonly caused by having more than one jumper on a trampoline at once.2 Bur recent research illustrates that trampoline parks create even more risk than their standalone counterparts. First, they are built to accommodate many jumpers, and although parks' rules dictate only one jumper per "section," these rules are often broken. The hard supports between sectioned components of the trampolines themselves pose a serious risk as well, and they are common culprits for high-impact injuries after a fall.  At trampoline parks, jumpers are more likely to collide with others, more likely to sustain dislocations, and more likely to require hospital admission than jumpers on home trampolines.3  If a child is going to jump on a trampoline, practicing good safety skills like supervised, netted jumping with only one jumper at a time, as well as appropriately managing any injuries in the event of an accident, is the best way to keep safe them during these activities. And over half of injuries sustained from trampoline activities are soft tissue injuries,4 highlighting the importance of proper injury treatment and care.  For non-life threatening spinal and soft tissue injuries, treatment by a doctor of chiropractic is an excellent, effective, and safe way to heal an injury, strengthen the body, and protect from re-injury.

Preventing Severe Traumatic Brain Injuries: Proof That Bike Helmets Really Work

There has been a debate over the years about whether bike helmets really do that much to prevent injuries. Advocates claim that wearing a helmet while riding a bike can save lives. Skeptics, however, don’t think that this type of protective gear does that much to prevent head injuries, let alone death.  Recently, a study was conducted at the University of Arizona to determine just how effective helmet protection really was for riders.

3 Ways Bike Helmets Protect Riders

During the course of this study, over 6000 bike accident patients were evaluated. Researchers found that helmets did, in fact, protect riders in three important ways. Helmets protected riders from: 
1. Severe Traumatic Brain Injures (TBIs)
2. Facial fractures
3. Death, even after a brain hemorrhage.

The Great Debate: The Numbers Prove That Helmets Are Beneficial

The figures gathered during this study are proof that helmets do a good job of protecting riders. For instance, wearing a helmet reduced the odds of severe traumatic brain injuries by over 50 percent. The likelihood of death after a bike accident was reduced by almost 45 percent in helmeted riders. And, these riders were over 30 percent less likely to experience facial fractures.  While not all helmeted riders are going to avoid traumatic brain injuries after an accident, helmets can reduce the probability of severe injury and death. The numbers speak for themselves; helmets do much to protect the rider. 

Chiropractors Can Be Strong Advocates for Rider Protection

Chiropractors are promoters of health and want to do all they can to help their patients live a happy, injury-free lifestyle. One of the ways they do this is by educating their patients on injury prevention, which includes the use of bike helmets.
