Acupuncture and Massage therapy has been shown to provide effective forms of stress relief. This can help improve emotional and mental well-being and ease symptoms associated with specific mental health disorders, such as anxiety and depression
Many traditional doctors are partnering with doctors in other fields in order to make a multidisciplinary approach to mental health treatment. It is hoped that by using natural healing and talk therapy that the use of powerful prescriptions could decline, giving people a better overall quality of life without the burden of mental health symptoms.

This week is National Infertility Awareness Week. Anyone can be challenged to have a family. No matter what race, religion, sexuality, or economic status you are, infertility doesn’t discriminate.
This week unites millions of people who want to remove the stigmas and barriers that stand in the way of building families.
Functional Medicine works to restore balance to your body with the aim of achieving optimal health for the rest of your life.
By addressing the whole person and the underlying causes of disease or dysfunction, functional medicine provides strategies and a road map to optimum health.
When having trouble conceiving, it can be really difficult to decide what the best steps towards finding help can be. In Functional Medicine, we look to get the individual’s underlying root cause of imbalance within their body.
For many people, infertility can be improved with lifestyle, for example reducing stress, improving your diet, reducing over-exercising, and improving sleep.
Improper nervous system function, poor nutrition, and high stress could be one of the many different reasons why one may be infertile.
There are many different fertility treatments that you can try. Some are successful and some are not.
Many seek chiropractic care for wellness purposes and don’t realize the effect it may have on the body. While chiropractic doesn’t cure infertility, it does reduce stress and interference in the body.
Spring can always feel like a fresh start with flowers blooming, and the days becoming longer. You can finally get outside and enjoy the brighter days and warmer weather. Spring can be a time of new beginnings and the start of new healthy habits. You can begin exercising, begin a new hobby, or start taking care of your self by practicing self-care. Chiropractic care is a great way to take of yourself and help you feel like a spring chicken.
When it’s cold and dreary outside you, tend to stay indoors, and not be as active. Being less active can cause your joint to become stiff, and your mobility and flexibility can decrease. Chiropractic care benefits you by reducing your pain, enhancing mobility, increasing your flexibility, and activity levels. By reducing your pain you, are enhancing your overall health. The more energy you have, and the more your body functions efficiently, the better you will feel about yourself.
For us here at NWA Health Solutions, we are finding it is so rare that people know everything Chiropractors can do and treat. EDUCATION is key and teaching others about what we do is something we are going to strive to do. Here at NWA Health Solutions we don’t just crack backs. Our Doctors here do so much more than adjustments and we are here to educate you on all our services. Over the next several weeks we are going to discuss different health issues and concerns and how a person experiencing these can benefit from Chiropractic Care.

First of all, what is a Chiropractor? It is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Doctors of Chiropractic practice hands-on, drug-free approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling. Every Chiropractor is different and can do different treatments depending on their level of training and education.
The goal of chiropractic is to treat the origin of a condition, not the symptoms of a condition. Chiropractors get to the root of the problem; why does this condition exist? This approach is very different than that of a medical doctor. Today’s medicine treats symptoms that are associated with certain conditions, whereas chiropractors figure out where those symptoms originate from and treat the underlying condition. There are many conditions that chiropractic can treat without drugs or surgery. There are also many conditions that are not directly treated by chiropractic but are indirectly affected.

We have Solutions for your questions!
Our Spinal Decompression Therapy Program is a proven method of treatment for herniated disc, bulging disc, sciatic pain, and more. This program is designed specifically to heal the low back, not just mask the pain. Taking pain medication or undergoing risky spinal surgery is not the only option for low back pain. We treat the underlying conditions present in the low back, not just the symptoms.
Decompression Therapy works with the vertebrae, inter-vertebral discs and spinal nerves traveling up and down the spine. It is designed to traction the spine, decompressing the vertebrae, allowing the discs to pull in more oxygen and nutrients. By applying traction to the vertebrae in the low back, they allow the discs to act like a vacuum and draw the bulge/herniation back into the disc. This is the number one way to treat a disc bulge without surgery.
