Is it better to work out before or after a chiropractor adjustment?


I've been visiting the chiropractor 1-2 times a week just to keep my neck and back pain in check. I also like to work out including running, ab exercises, etc. I was planning on going to the gym before my adjustment and then just thought it might be better to do it the other way around because I know that the muscles in your neck have to heal after an adjustment. So- would it be better to work out after my neck's been adjusted? Thanks for the knowledgable answers.
----------

Definitely work out before your chiropractic adjustments. Exercising afterwards is going to throw off your adjustment.  (+ info)

What are some ailments and disorders that involve the human body's nervous system?


I would like to know what disorders/ailments affect the nervous system for a biology project, and I figured this was the best place to go.
----------

I have autoimmune pernicious anaemia (unable to absorb vitamin B12 in the digestive system) which affects the nervous system as B12 is essential to maintain the myelin sheath around the nerves. If undiagnosed, it can lead to permanent paralysis, be misdiagnosed as Alzheimer's disease (and cause permanent Alzhemier's disease if not diagnosed in time) and MS and is fatal without treatment. Misdiagnosis is common as lab levels are far too low. I have nerve damage in my finger still from being misdiagnosed. I had to diagnose myself.

What are the odds of my children inheriting these disorders?


My fiance and I were in the process of planning our wedding, when he told me his father and aunt have a seizure disorder; presumably from his paternal grandmother, because his father and aunt have different fathers. Now, my fiance also has an aunt (on his mother's side) that has Downs Syndrome. I am concerned about possibly passing something onto my future children. What are the odds of my children inheriting one or both of these disorders?
----------

Down Syndrome isn't something that is inherited, and seizure disorders rarely are. So very low.

If you really are concerned you could talk with a geneticist. But as far as I can tell, there probably is no need to.  (+ info)

Does getting an adjustment at the chiropractor burn calories?


I'm always tired after receiving an adjustment. Would the muscle repair burn a lot of calories- say as many as a light workout? Thanks!
----------

No it doesn't burn calories.The tiredness is sometimes caused because the body is trying to heal.
It is advisable anyhow to rest after treatment.  (+ info)

How long is adjustment period for prescription eyeglasses?


I dot my prescription eyeglasses 1 week ago. These eyeglasses for work with computer and for distance. So, I am not using them all time but about 8-10 hours per day, every day during this week. For now, I have a hard time. I got slight nausea and dizziness. Is it normal? If yes, how long is adjustment period?
Thanks for help
----------

It's normal for you to have a little headache when you're getting used to new glasses.It happened with me when I got my current pair,not so much at first,but after a couple days they gave me a slight headache and I'd have to take them off for a few minutes to give my eyes a rest.You should just wear them for a couple days so you can get used to them.Hang in there!  (+ info)

How well does zoloft work for anxiety disorders linking to depression?


How well does zoloft work for anxiety disorders or is there anything else better that u would recommend that would not put me to sleep. Ive feared social things, going back to school, getting a job and getting infront of people all my life Just wondering wondering if there is something that would help me have a productive life that would help my anxiety? I want even go into a store by myself I panic. Ive always been more to myself because of it no very social.
----------

It works pretty damn good for me. I really don't feel sleepy at all just better.

It's more like your relaxed now that you don't have anxiety. It was a change for me because I couldn't think of a time where I was not panicky except when I was a little kid.

I started taking zoloft for anxiety/depression going on 2 months now.
I started at 25mg and am now at 100 mg, and I think I'm staying at 100.

It is truly amazing for anxiety. Anxiety has made me miserable, but not anymore.

I haven't had a panic attack in about a month now, and let me tell you it is great. I can go out in public now without a problem, Heart palpitations from anxiety are gone, and it also helps with my obsessive compulsiveness.

Good luck, you won't regret it!  (+ info)

What kindof cases/disorders would one expect to find on a Medical Endocrinology ward?


I know it is related to hormones, and there seems to be a varying amount of related disorders - from diabetes to thyroid to cancer. Are there any specific disorders in relation to Medical Endocrinology (in the UK)?
----------

Here are some examples: patients with pancreatitis, patients in diabetic coma, sent up by the ER, patients in severe hyperglycemia sent up by the ER, patients with Addisons disease (adrenal trouble), patients with severe anaphylactic reactions that has not been properly diagnosed, young girls with severe abdominal pains who tell you when you ask whether they have had sex : "No doctor I am not married!" with an innocent smile and are about to loose a 6 week embryo,patients with acute neurotoxin infections from seafood, and other sources, patients with chronic heavy metal infections: lead, arsenic , benzene compounds, patients with wrongly diagnosed epileptic seizures.....you want more, we have seen them all mate.  (+ info)

How long does it take your eyes to make the adjustment?


How long does it take your eyes to make the adjustment from looking far away to looking into your bifocals and then back. Mine are taking a little more time than I feel comfortable with. These new bifocals have me baffled!
----------

Most people adapt within a week. If you are still having trouble after that, consult your doctor to make sure the glasses were made correctly and that the base prescription is correct.  (+ info)

What percentage of obese people have eating disorders?


What percentage of obese people have eating disorders? Is it more common than unhealthy lifestyle?
To clear it up, I mean people who have had eating disorders from the start, not after they started eating enormous amounts.
----------

Most people have unhealthy life styles, especially older folks who are passing their habits down to their kids. However, it is more common to have an eating disorder at a younger age. So, finding a statistic is going to be age based, and not representative of everyone.

Contrary to your question, most people that have eating disorders are not obese, they are quite likely to be unusually thin. Think: young girls throwing up after a meal. The obese people will have a problem that deals with food as a source of soothing in an emotional setting.  (+ info)
