Dear patient and neighbor, La Costa Chiropractic & Wellness is open and here to serve our community!
At La Costa Chiropractic, it is always our top priority to provide all our patients with the best experience in our office while protecting the health and safety of our patients and employees. Like each of you, we understand that we share a responsibility to protect our families and community, which has caused us to take a number of actions in response to the novel corona virus (COVID-19) threat. To start, we already had robust quality assurance and safety standards in place, which we continue to reinforce. We are also closely monitoring and following guidance and advice regarding this illness from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Thus, we have taken the following preventative steps: - Reinforcing vigorous cleaning and sanitizing of surfaces across the office including, but not limited to our adjusting tables, door/handles and bathroom surfaces.
- Reinforcing our strict operating procedures including our long-standing policy of not letting employees work while sick.
- Chiropractic adjustments are a great way to help reduce stress and strengthen your immune system. If you have flu-like symptoms we will gladly arrange to adjust you after-hours. This will allow us to treat all of our patients with the utmost care and prevent potential contamination. Here are some other things you can do to fortify your immune system:
1- Get yourself and loved ones checked by your chiropractor for subluxations and get adjusted to reduce stress, improve function and stimulate your immune system. 2- Eat primitively to ensure you are getting the full nutrients (fresh foods, not processed) Increase Vitamins A, C, and D. Eat Alkaline foods (viruses don’t do well in alkaline environments). Avoid sugar and sugary foods. 3- Stay hydrated with water, 10 glasses per day, sipping frequently. 4- Get between 7 and 8 hours of sound sleep. 5- Exercise daily, but don’t over do it! If you have access to an infrared sauna, use it (viruses don’t do well in high temperatures, that’s why the body gets a fever when we are exposed to viruses). 6- Maintain a great spiritual relationship. 7- Maintain great friendships and family relations. 8- Give more of yourself and serve. 9- Allow prosperity as a natural part of your existence.
10- Have a low stress and very positive attitude towards life. 11- Make a difference every day.
12- Wash your hands with soap and warm water for 20 seconds at a time several times a day.
Thank you for your continued trust and confidence,
Your La Costa Chiropractic & Wellness Team
Case Study and Selective Review of Literature show exciting data
Resolution of Otitis Media & Avoidance of Tympanostomy Tubes in a 16-Month-Old with Birth Trauma Following Subluxation Based Care
(09/06/2013, Carlsbad). A recent article in the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health reported on a 16-month-old male with a history of recurrent ear infections who received chiropractic care.
Following the study, the child showed a reduction of all signs and symptoms and was able to avoid a pediatrician recommended tympanostomy. Carlsbad-based Dr. Michael Berry, D.C., follows health and wellness issues closely in professional journals and other publications stated, “The ear infections began at the age of fourteen months and since then he has had four medically diagnosed bilateral ear infections all treated with antibiotic therapy without resolution. The mother sought out chiropractic care in order to avoid the insertion of tympanostomy tubes recommended by the pediatrician.”
In the first three years of life, more two thirds of children are medically diagnosed with one or more episodes of acute otitis media (AOM). Of those medically diagnosed, 33% have had three or more episodes. Otitis media has significant effects on children other than physical symptomatic manifestations including decreased attentiveness, irritability, sleep disturbances and behavioral changes.
“As a result of the child’s physical, mental and behavior changes, otitis media is a common cause for significant school absences in children of elementary age.” Dr. Berry related. “A complication of AOM is possible hearing loss.”
“Vertebral subluxations were identified and cared for utilizing the Activator instrument and sustained contacts. The patient showed immediate decrease in symptomatology in the first week of care and during the fourth week of care had an appointment with the pediatrician revealing bilateral ear infections to be resolved,” said Dr. Berry. “The patient continues under chiropractic care and has not had any recurrence of ear infections.”
“This is just one study,” explained Dr. Berry, “but this case reports that the reduction of vertebral subluxation through chiropractic care resulted in decreased symptomatology associated with otitis media and the patient was able to avoid the insertion of tympanostomy tubes.”
