Ducati-ing to Lake Tahoe>San Francisco>northern California coast – July 2014

Ducati Update – July 2014:  Just got back from a 1921 mile round-trip motorcycle trip from Salt Lake city to south Lake Tahoe onto San Francisco…doing the best of chiropractic workshops by Dr Art Croft, DC of the Spine Research Institute of San Diego to learn more about what it’s like for people to be involved in an auto collision and whiplash accidents and who are entitled for more medical /chiropractic care and legal settlement to receive what they’re entitled to whether it be from their own auto insurance for which they pay for or from the insurance company of the person who was at fault…don’t ever settle for less…it’s your birth-right! …  then over the golden gate bridge to Stinson beach up highway us 1 to Olema with a most wonderful sunday brunch consisting of clam chowder soup, 2 servings of fresh chilled oysters plus crab cakes, 2 draft beers and dessert…the “duc” never ran better nor did I… then and onto harbin hot springs for 3 days of sun…pools of water…pools of water and more pools of water…healing exponentiated…butt’s a little sore after 721 miles on the bike yesterday but the bod’s unwinding after a few scotch & water’s 🙂 … the coolest thing i’ve ever done so far…and i look forward to the “next trip…”…maybe the Canadian Pacific northwest… July 2014.

Torrey, Utah, September 2012 – Last weekend I took a gorgeous motorcycle ride to Torrey, Boulder, Escalante and Goblin State Park.  The weather was absolutely fantastic, autumn was in its full splendor and the Fall colors were so beautiful! Af’ter having sunshine for three days I was actually hoping that it would rain one day just to be able to wear my rain gear, rubber gloves and six layers.

It was my first trip to Torrey. You’re in  for a real treat. If you go too fast through the town you can ride right through it. Cafe Diablo was great for dinner, a little pricier than other restaurants in town, but quite nice. For breakfast try the Capitol Reef & Cafe…great pancakes and French toast. During the summer months it’s pretty busy so bring your newspaper, favorite book or catch up on your emails and text messaging…its  nice not rushing anywhere, besides you can always rush when you go home.

Go out Highway 12 west to Boulder. I was a little disappointed with Hells Backbone Grill…sweet atmosphere, but not quite the hype that it appeared on their website. The ride to Escalante is gorgeous. I went the third weekend in September, such beautiful Fall colors, unbelievable diversity in the geography and topography within short distances and the rodes are the best that I have ever ridden on. They wind so beautifully, no sharp bends which I don’t like and if I rode for some 25 hours over the weekend there was just “one pebble” on the entire highway.

There are so many trails to choose from and so much to see, to feel and to experience. Tons of stars. The air is so delicate …its molecules almost seem to speak…took 6.5 hours to get home, but can’t wait to go down again.

Can Chiropractic Help with Sports Injuries in Salt Lake City

We all have a favorite sport and some of us love sports of every kind. You may be a spectator only but most of us do get actively involved in some way. You may enjoy playing catch with your kids or meeting friends at the gym for a game of basketball. Simply tossing a Frisbee around in the yard with your dog can be relaxing and fun. Eventually, most of us will overdo it a little and get injured.

Injuries can range from pulling a hamstring to getting a painful case of tennis elbow. Sometimes, the pain will go away in a few days on its own. There are some injuries that require emergency care and some that just come on gradually. Spraining your ankle can even occur while running to catch a cab or bus.

Pain is Your Body’s Way of Talking to You – Are You Listening?

Ultra-Marathon man, Dean Karnazes says that, “Pain is the body’s way of ridding itself of weakness.”

Most doctors agree that pain is your body’s method of saying that there is something wrong. Think of pain as a flashing red light that signals a problem somewhere.  Sometimes we get injured and it’s the next day before we feel the pain. Bruising often doesn’t show up for a day or two. Sometimes injuries are severe enough that we know immediately that we need medical attention but sometimes injuries are more subtle.

With diseases like Rheumatoid Arthritis, the pain and stiffness comes on gradually, giving you the opportunity to adjust your lifestyle so that you can learn to live with it. This can be a good thing in many cases but it can also prevent you from seeking help for the pain of RA. New discoveries are made every day that can help with arthritis and neuropathies, but if we have simply decided to just live with our pain, then we may not be aware of other options.

Chiropractic has been helping people for centuries deal with aches, pains and stiffness from all sorts of injuries and illnesses. In the 50’s and 60’s chiropractic was used in rehabilitating children who had suffered muscle loss from polio. The Great Polio outbreak affected literally thousands of children and many died. Those who survived were left crippled to some extent but chiropractors were able to restore much of the mobility for some.

When your body is in optimum condition, it has the ability to heal itself correctly. That is the main reason Utah chiropractic works so well. It puts the spine back in alignment and reduces inflammation throughout the body. Many patients experience great relief from everything imaginable. From sports injuries to arthritis and from migraines to muscle injuries in Salt Lake City, Utah, brings brings soothing relief and improves circulation.

Salt Lake City, Holistic Chiropractor Dr. Bob has worked with patients from every walk of life suffering with many types of pain. His holistic approach encourages your body to achieve maximum health, so that it can better heal itself. He has many tools at his disposal from the simple Vertebral Subluxation, to Litecure’s Deep Tissue Laser and KDT’s Spinal Decompression.

If you’ve  been experiencing pain in your body, then maybe it’s time to get some help from Dr. Bob Bob of the Holistic Chiropractic & Wellness in Salt Lake City, Utah. Dr. Bob has over 20 years of experience and as a professional chiropractor, he understands how to utilize the science, art and philosophy of chiropractic in Salt Lake City, Utah to gently promote the body’s own natural healing functions.

Musculoskeletal Health – Structure to Function – Salt Lake City Chiropractor

Salt Lake City, Utah, chiropractors focus on the body’s spine health and the key to physical health and well-being is a healthy muscular and skeletal system.

The spine allows the body to bend, twist and move. A healthy spine does not hurt and is virtually pain-free. Almost every body movement a person makes requires use of the spine, whether it’s getting out bed, showering, sitting at a desk, tying shoes, folding laundry or driving a car. Not only is the spine responsible for the body’s movements, but it also houses the core of the body’s nerves.

Consisting of 26 vertebrae, or bones, the spine runs from the base of the skull to the tailbone. These vertebrae neatly stack on top of one another, separated by sponge-like discs. Every bone in the body – either directly or indirectly – attaches to the spine.

When a person moves, the spinal column is capable of moving in four main ways: flexion, a forward bending motion; extension, a backward bending motion; lateral bending, bending from side-to-side; and rotation, which involves twisting. As the spine is comprised of so many bones, the body can freely accommodate these movements.

The spine consists of 32 pairs of nerves, each of which exits the spine and sends nerves to different parts of the body. These spinal nerves are delicate and can easily become inflamed or irritated, causing the body to not operate at its full potential. Chiropractors believe when these nerves are inflamed, it can impact the nerve flow to other areas of the body, including vital organs.

When the body is sore and compensates by placing more stress on other areas, this is known as hypo-mobility. When this occurs, as the body compensates for inactive movement in other areas, the result is hyper-mobility. When the body compensates in this way, it causes other areas of the body to become fatigued and causes pain. When abnormal movements and routines continue over an extended period, it can result in chronic bodily ailments. This is where visiting a chiropractor at the first onset of pain is advisable, helping to eliminate chronic conditions from developing and reducing inflammation immediately.

Dr. Bob Seiler, a Salt Lake City, chiropractor, Utah, understands the importance of people listening to their bodies. The body’s warning mechanism is pain, and when the spine reduces range of motion, it’s the body’s way of sounding an alarm. When people experience back spasms, this is in response to the body protecting the delicate spinal nerves.

Maintaining good spinal health is vital to overall physical strength. This includes:

  • Posture – Maintaining good posture trains the muscles, enabling the body to function more efficiently and effectively.
  • Flexibility – When someone exercises correctly and regularly, the body adapts to these extended ranges of motion. Stretching correctly and regularly helps to elongate muscles, enhances the lung’s air intake and lengthens tendons. It also helps maintain a healthy range of motion for each vertebra and joints.
  • Structure to Function – its Relationship: As the human body evolves upon birth its structures develop based upon the biological environment that the human body resides in. Through the natural process of nature the human body is dependent upon the gravitational forces that are placed upon it, and and gives us the bodies’ that we have. Based upon how our bodies’ sit, stand, walk, bend, twist, turn, then accordingly our bodies develop its own particular posture. Depending on how this posture develops it has a direct relationship to how it functions.

Holistic Chiropractor in Salt Lake City, Utah

Dr. Bob Seiler is a Salt Lake City, Utah holistic chiropractor. A holistic healer by definition strives to create harmony within the body – examining the physical, chemical and emotional components of health and well-being. Not many salt lake city chiropractors practice this way.

Chiropractors focus on providing non-invasive, drug-free and natural treatments that help treat musculo-skeletal body disorders. Combining spinal adjustments, other treatments may include exercise, diet, nutrition and healthy lifestyle changes. Chiropractic  physicians believe that all body functions are triggered by the brain, travel down the spinal cord and then disperse to the body’s cells and organs.

Combining education, diagnostic skills, advanced knowledge, laboratory results and expert judgment, chiropractors strive to evaluate the patient’s overall neurological health. Chiropractors as primary healthcare physicians also work with other healthcare professionals to help diagnose and treat patients.

Typically, holistic chiropractors complete a new patient physical examination with x-rays and sometimes order MRI’s and CT Scans to more thoroughly check the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. Additionally, chiropractors must complete an advanced college degree, state and nationwide examinations and be licensed to practice in each state.

What are the benefits of holistic chiropractic services?

  • Patients become more aware that their bodies as well as their minds and emotions, bodies work and effect each other.
  • If the body is not functioning properly, other systems of the body suffer. Many physical conditions are related to different types of emotional stress.

Tips to Regain Mobility in your Body

Often people go to see a Utah chiropractor because they have taken a bad fall, experience pain or are hearing pops and clicks in their body. Sometimes it’s just a question of having slept wrong, waking up with stiffness in your neck or poor posture. Victims of car accidents also seek help from a Salt Lake City chiropractor for whiplash.

Whatever has your body aching and in pain, there are some key things you can do for yourself to alleviate the stiffness and restore mobility.

Stiff Neck
A common cause of your stiff neck can simply be sleeping wrong and the type of pillow or bed that you are using. This causes a muscle spasm to the levator scapula muscle. This muscle connects the cervical spine (the neck) with the shoulder and is controlled by the third and fourth cervical nerves (C3, C4).

Playing various types of sports can also cause a stiff neck, as can excessive stress and holding your neck in an awkward position for a long time like leaning over your computer. Sometimes an ice pack or heating pad can can help soothe the aching muscles. Massages can help but it is not as extensive and comprehensive as seeing a holistic chiropractor in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Lower Back
When it comes to lower back pain, about the best cure is to see your chiropractor for a holistic physical exam. Receive a thorough evaluation. See whats causing your pain or symptom. Subluxations may be involved. Some people swear by the heating pad and their favorite topical ointment. Your lower back is an intricate structure of ligaments, tendons, muscles, soft tissue and joints.

These highly sensitive nerves can cause pain that radiates to other parts of the body. Lower back muscle spasms can be severe or even chronic. In some cases, low back pain indicates more severe conditions such as degenerative disc disease and lumbar disc herniation. In older adults, the low back pain can be caused from joint degeneration or osteoarthritis.

Treatment Options
If the pain is severe or persistent, it’s very important to see a chiropractic physician. Dr. Bob Seiler can have x-rays ordered, because he does not like to over utilize x-ray. If you have chills and fever, changes in bowel movements or unexplained weight loss, then seek the help of trained physician immediately.

Holistic Chiropractic & Wellness in Salt Lake City offers you the benefit of years of experience and training to reduce pain, swelling and restore mobility to the neck and back. Dr. Bob Seiler’s all-natural, holistic approach can help you maintain mobility and even minimize future injury. Dr. Seiler works with each patient to get them completely healthy and reduce pain medication dependencies, over-the-counter pain relievers and possible surgeries.

What is Spinal Decompression? Non-Surgical Relief of Back & Neck Pain

Spinal Decompression is a non-surgical technique that utilizes traction based therapy to alleviate the pressure on a herniated or bulging disc. During your treatment, the doctor cycles through the dis-traction and relaxation phases so that the spinal disc can be isolated. This aids in placing the disc under negative pressure which causes a vacuum effect.

The injured disc is pulled back into its normal space where healing can take place. The procedure also works to increase blood flow in the area which can speed up the healing process. Spinal decompression will even work for those who have had back surgery but still experience pain and discomfort associated with a herniated disc.  Patients often report that they receive relief from neck and leg pain as well.

Spinal decompression is also often used on patients who do not have a herniated or bulging disc, but do suffer with poor spinal muscle control. In many patients, the spine and discs are problem areas, so if Dr. Bob believes that spinal decompression can relieve some of the pressure that may be causing your pain, then he will offer you this treatment option along with several others.

His multi-faceted approach to spinal issues has proven to work in a number of patients with various problems. The Holistic Chiropractic & Wellness Clinic prides itself on the diversity of treatment options offered to patients. Each person is different and every condition may require a unique solution.

If you’ve experienced prolonged back, arm, neck, or leg pain, then spinal decompression therapy may provide the relief you’ve been searching for. It also works well for those with a pinched nerve, spinal stenosis, or osteoarthritis in the facet joints. In most cases, the treatments are completely painless and patients may even fall asleep during their spinal decompression treatment.

At the Utah Holistic Chiropractic & Wellness Clinic, the Kennedy Decompression Table is used for this procedure. Dr. Bob will go over the treatment regimen best for your particular situation and answer your questions before beginning.

Dr. Bob Seiler’s Holistic Chiropractic office in Salt Lake City offers a number of excellent treatment options designed to meet each individual’s needs. Dr. Seiler believes in giving each patient time to discuss their current problems and medical history.

By using the all-natural, holistic approach,Dr. Bob can readily get to the bottom of your most urgent needs. He has over 20 years of experience and is a trained chiropractor but also holds a degree in psychology and massage therapy.
