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."

DRS 252BFactsWhat 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.

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!

Still Want To Drink Up?

Study Proves Chiropractic Care Minimizes Opioid Dependence

The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine has published a study that formalizes the efficacy of chiropractic care in reducing opioid usage among adults with low back pain. The study, which included over 13,000 adults, found that patients receiving chiropractic care for low back pain (LBP) filled opioid analgesic prescriptions 55 percent less often than those not receiving chiropractic care. Overall, the research indicated chiropractic pain management practices can reduce or eliminate the need for opioid pain relievers, resulting in fewer risks and reduced patient costs. Key findings included:

  • Only 19 percent of patients under chiropractic care filled prescriptions for opioids in contrast to the subjects not under chiropractic care, of which 35 percent filled opioid prescriptions.
  • When considering all types of prescriptions, the group under chiropractic care filled significantly fewer prescriptions than the non-chiropractic care group. 

With over 2 million people in the U.S. suffering from opioid addiction and 15% of the population fearing addiction to opioids, finding safe and cost-effective methods of managing pain is critical. Chiropractic care, along with other drug-free therapies, has been recommended by the Institute of Medicine to treat patients presenting with chronic pain. Guidelines from the American College of Physicians are even more explicit on recommendations for treating back pain, clarifying non-pharmacologic treatment as the primary choice. Opioids are considered as a last resort only, or in cases where patients’ complicating factors make other options incompatible. If you’re suffering from back pain, contact a chiropractic near you to help manage your pain safely, effectively, and without drugs.

Rear-Facing Car Seats Increase Child Safety During Real-Impact Collisions

Until recently, the call for rear-facing carseats has been predicated on results garnered from side-impact and head-on accidents, which are deadliest. However, a rear-impact collision has potential to cause head-and-neck injuries in infants and toddlers when the back-and-forth motion of the impact causes a whiplash effect. Experts agree that infants and toddlers should remain seated in rear-facing carseats until they’ve reached the age of two or until they’re too big to be positioned correctly for maximum front- and side-impact protection. A new study by Julie Mansfield of the Injury Biomechanics Research Center of Wexner Medical Center now proves this rear-facing position is protective even when the car is impacted from behind. The study used a crash-test dummy to demonstrate how crash energy is absorbed through the rear-facing seat to keep the child’s head, neck, and spine safely aligned. Employing four of the most commonly-used U.S. carseats, the study recreated a series of rear-impact collisions that found all four carseats, when used in the rear-facing position, allowed the crash energy to travel through the carseat and vehicle seat, reducing crash forces on the child’s body. In this scenario, the child is cradled by the seat, allowing the energy of the crash to be distributed evenly over the child’s back. Because the carseat and child move as one unit, the head and spine remain supported. These results should assure parents that keeping their children in rear-facing seats for as long as possible is the best way to protect them from injuries sustained in any collision scenario.

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!
