Moyal Chiropractic

featuring the

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?
Dr. Moyal has successfully treated patients suffering from chronic and severe disc conditions, and works inter-professionally with the medical community.

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,

just give us a call at: (305) 531-2933

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!

October is National Chiropractic Health Month


During National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM) this October, the American Chiropractic Association is working with the more than 130,000 doctors of chiropractic (DCs), chiropractic assistants (CAs) and chiropractic doctoral students nationwide to help educate the public and policymakers about the value of a "conservative care first" approach to health care. This health care model encourages emphasis on more cost-effective and safer approaches over potentially addictive medications for pain management and health enhancement. Conservative management of painful conditions may include chiropractic manipulation combined with exercise and stretching prior to moving on to procedures involving higher risk. During NCHM, chiropractors will share information with patients and their communities to empower them to become their own advocates by insisting on information about conservative treatment options. Why is "Conservative Care First" more important today than ever in facing our nation’s healthcare challenges?


  • Chiropractic physicians are the highest-rated healthcare practitioners for low-back pain treatments with their patient-centered, whole-person approach that provides greater interaction and communication for appropriate diagnosis and developing more cost-effective treatment planning.

  • Numerous recent studies have clearly shown the dangerous overreliance in the U.S. on prescription painkillers that simply mask pain. This has tremendously increased Americans’ risk for overuse, and abuse, of these drugs if taken for long periods, leading to more than 17,000 related deaths in 2010 (more than heroin and cocaine combined). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention calls the abuse of prescription pain medications an "epidemic."
  • 
Recent evidence questions the overuse--and in some cases the effectiveness--of more invasive treatments such as spinal fusion surgery and spinal steroid injections for back pain. It is reasonable for patients to exhaust more conservative options before undergoing these costly procedures.

"People need complete information about their treatment options," said ACA President Anthony Hamm, DC. "During National Chiropractic Health Month, DCs are encouraging patients to ask questions and learn about safe, effective conservative approaches that may help them avoid riskier and more costly treatments."

Chiropractic Care Better For Seniors

New research indicates chiropractic care provides not only protective benefits but also offers increased patient satisfaction in Medicare patients with spine conditions, when compared to medical care. Published in the prestigious Journal of Manipulative & Physiological Therapeutics, this new study compared chiropractic to medical care in areas related to activities of daily living, self-rated health and worsening health after 1 year. According to researchers, "...chiropractic is significantly protective against 1-year decline in activities of daily living, lifting, stooping, walking, self-rated health, and worsening health after 1 year. Persons using chiropractic are more satisfied with their follow-up care and with the information provided to them."

Active Kids Think Better


According to researchers, children who participate in moderate to vigorous physical activity not only benefit physically, they also improve their cognitive performance and brain function. Results from a new study involving 221 children aged 7 to 9 show regular participation in moderate to vigorous physical activity increases their ability to block out distractions, increase focus and improve their multi-tasking skills. U.S. and European exercise guidelines for children and teens currently call for a minimum of 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity per day. If you're a parent with a child or teen, encourage and assist them in becoming and staying physically active. Enroll them in after school programs that involve physical activity. Get them into a sports league. Join the YMCA. Take them to the park. Play in the back yard. Be safe but definitely be active!
