Hey guys! I just want to talk to you a little bit today about back pain. I was just reading online some very interesting statistics that I really wanted to share with you. I read that worldwide back pain is the single leading cause of disability, preventing many people from engaging in work as well as other everyday activities. Back pain accounts for more than 264 million lost work days in one year, that’s two workdays for every full-time worker in this country.

 

This is a real problem, and the thing is chiropractic and massage can help so much with this. So often, Shane and I see people that are coming in not on a regular basis but only at that point where they are dying of pain. As wellness practitioners, our whole motto is “prevention is key.” So, for us it’s really frustrating dealing with some of these people that are dealing with back issues, and they’re not coming in on a regular basis to prevent this from happening in the first place. As an American, as a worker in the field, and as a person that is really into wellness go in and get your back checked.

Coffee Talk Primitive Reflexes

 

Shane: Hi, and welcome to another Coffee Talk at Austin Community Wellness! This is me and Dr. Sarah here. I’ve got some questions for her today about primitive reflexes. Here we go! So, Dr. Sarah, what are primitive reflexes?

 

Dr. Sarah: Primitive reflexes are reflexes that you’re born with. They should go away at different milestones in a child’s life. Sometimes brain injuries or developmental delay can actually bring these back or prevent these from actually fully going away in a child. So, these are all the things that we are looking for with primitive reflexes.

 

Shane: Cool! Why is it important for these to be checked?

 

Dr. Sarah: I actually check primitive reflexes on every child exam that I do. I test for these mainly because they are predictors of neurodevelopmental delays in children, and there are a lot of exercises that can be done that can actually help these go away like they’re supposed to. That’s kind of the importance behind them.

 

Shane: Okay, so if a child has these reflexes present does it mean they are delayed?

 

Dr. Sarah: So, if they have the reflexes present it doesn’t necessarily mean that they are developmentally delayed. There are different body types and different developmental timeframes that children have, but for us it’s a really good indicator of how we can help introduce exercises that help with that neurodevelopmental period of time. I use these reflexes as a baseline so that I can get a really good idea of where I’m going to focus with this child.

 

Shane: Okay, then why isn’t it good to skip these milestones?

 

Dr. Sarah: Milestones are super important. Skipping steps basically means that the brain is not developing in certain areas. So, by making sure a child goes from crawling to using their hands to pick themselves up on furniture to letting go and walking, these are all very pivotal points for brain development so that synapses can be created between the left- and right-hand side of the brain. This allows the brain to communicate better. So, when we have kids that are skipping these steps, they are also skipping the building of these synapses. As far as primitive reflexes are concerned, we look at these to try to make sure that we are hitting all the steps and if they are not, we can then introduce exercises to help them get back on track.

 

Shane: It sounds like a pretty important thing to look at in kids. I’m glad we’re able to talk about it here. Alright, well thanks for your time, guys. We’ll see you again, thank you.  Also read my other article on Cranio Sacral Therapy here

Hey, this is Dr. Sarah and Shane! We’re starting a series called: Coffee Talk. We’ve got our coffee here, so today we’d really like to talk a little bit about craniosacral therapy because we get a lot of people calling for it. We thought it would be really good for Shane to really explain to people what it is how it can help this kind of thing.

 

Shane: Craniosacral is a bodywork that uses touch therapy to support the body’s natural healing abilities.

 

Dr. Sarah: Great, so what kind of things could it help out with?

 

Shane: Well because CST is a holistic therapy, like other holistic therapies, there’s a very broad range of conditions that it can help with. However, the conditions that most CST providers will find success with is migraine headaches, TMJ, developmental disorders in kids, PTSD, brain and spinal cord traumas are also responding really well.

 

Dr. Sarah: Yeah, we do work with a lot of kids that have neurodevelopmental disorders, and things like that. So, this is something that Shane’s going to really be taking on and tackling more so than me moving on in the future. That’s pretty exciting! What would somebody expect in a typical session with you?

 

Shane: Okay, so usually you’ll lay down on the table. I’ll place my hands lightly on different parts of the body. I usually like to check in with the feet first, and I’ll just kind of listen. We’ll make a game plan based on what we hear. The body will give certain cues. You have to have a bit of intuition and then you follow the intuition for the treatment as whatever is necessary.

 

Dr. Sarah: Great! Is there anything else you wanted to share about it?

 

Shane: It’s an amazing work! I think that if more people gave it half a chance, they would find that less is sometimes more and they should probably give it a shot. I mean we’ve definitely had great results. People that come in really talk about how amazing they feel afterwards and so I think it’s really a valuable treatment for people to put their time and effort into.
