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!

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

or visit us today at: 1741 Alton Road. Miami Beach, Florida 33139

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!

Spinal Manipulative Therapy - A Winner For Defeating Neck Pain!

A new study funded by the US Department of Health and Human Services has shown spinal manipulative therapy (SMT), the primary therapy administered by doctors of chiropractic, to be superior in the treatment of neck pain in the elderly population. A total of 241 individuals aged 65 years and older with a primary complaint of mechanical neck pain present for 12 weeks or longer participated in the study. Participants receiving 12 weeks of SMT coupled with home exercises (HE) experienced statistically better pain relief than those participants who utilized HE alone. If you’re suffering from neck pain or any spinal pain, even if you’re over the age of 65, call your local chiropractor today for a no obligation consultation to see what chiropractic care might be able to offer you!

Chiropractic Adjustments And Your Safety


Chiropractic adjustments, also known as spinal manipulative therapy or spinal manipulation, are a natural, non-invasive and extremely safe form of therapy provided by licensed doctors of chiropractic. Each doctor of chiropractic goes through rigorous and extensive hands on training including the passing of national and state board examinations to ensure their expertise and competency in evaluating, diagnosing and treating spinal ailments and other health related conditions is at a high level. From time to time, stories in the media attempt to circumvent truth and what research has shown by suggesting that chiropractic adjustments may not be completely safe. We find claims challenging chiropractic’s safety record unprofessional and unfounded based on what medical research has already proven. For example, one of the largest and most credible studies related to chiropractic safety and related neck injuries, Cassidy et al., found that a patient is as likely to have seen a primary care medical doctor as a doctor of chiropractic prior to experiencing a cervical arterial injury. The truth is chiropractic care is extremely safe and medical research backs this. If you or someone you know is in need of chiropractic services, rest assured in knowing chiropractic care and chiropractic adjustments are not only effective, they’re one of the safest health-related procedures offered by any healthcare discipline.

Neck Pain In The Office


Results from a newly published study indicate neck pain and disability in the workplace has an exceedingly high occurrence rate. In this year long study consisting of over 500 healthy office workers, 23 percent reported neck pain with disability. Factors that increased the likelihood of experiencing neck pain and disability included a previous history of neck pain, chair adjustability and perceived muscular tension. While it’s obviously impossible to eliminate a past history of neck problems, ensuring that you receive the proper care for new neck problems and ensuring you have a high quality work chair with appropriate adjustments for proper posture and comfort are important. Chiropractors are experts highly skilled and trained in proper function and conditioning of the spine and it’s components - this includes the neck, back and lower back. If you’re having issues with your neck or back, or just wish to have a spinal check-up, call your local doctor of chiropractic today!
