    How many times a year should one see a chiropractor if ones back health is good?

      As infrequently as possible because spinal manipulations should be preformed less often. If massage, exercise and physical therapy, stress management, nutritional counseling, etc. are rendered during your visits then one can go often. Chiropractic neurology provides well to those seeking the overall health benefits of natural methods.

    I suffer from nerve pain in my hands and neck. I have recently had a bilateral rib resection for suspected thoracic outlet syndrome.

    It has been 2 months and I am still in a lot of nerve pain which worsens when I use my hands.

    Are there any recommended supplements I can try?

    I just got back from an unusually cool Summer Camp with my 3 daughters. Temperatures never went above 88 yet one of my daughters and 7 of the 46 6-8 year olds that I worked with contracted heat rash on the trunk of their bodies; front and back. They were (forced) to wear the same “wicking” 100% polyester shirt all week. The young girls I mentioned were only at camp during the day, any older girls were there overnight for 6 days. The older girls hand washed their shirts with mild hand soap once or twice. I’m giving you details because I wonder if the “wicking” shirts could have contributed to the rise in heat rash I saw from a previous year when it was 104 degrees and the girls wore their own clean change of clothing each day; usually cotton t-shirts. I don’t have any other details on the quality or weave of the polyester fibers in the shirts.

      Thank you for taking the time to write, Carrie. I am sorry to hear of the malady experienced by the girls. The natural fibers of, to name only a few, cotton, wool and rayon (made from tree bark) are the best for the body, especially, when contact is for a long period of time like the one you mentioned. Conversely, the fabrics that “wick” are often irritating to the skin and should only be used for athletic activities.
