Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to provide drug-free pain relief in such cases, not to mention help the body mend itself so the condition is relieved.

For many of us, we might be looking for healthier options for our holiday fare. Whether you're hosting the party or just bringing a side of some sort to a soiree that has already been organized, it's a great idea to stand out by crafting dishes made with clean, whole ingredients.
Below, Scorca Chiropractic goes over a few creative dishes you can bring to the party that will be both exciting and good for those who partake.
Make a nice, healthy salad and throw in some crunch -- almonds, walnuts, and sunflower seeds, for instance. Sweeten the deal with some of nature's candy -- dried cranberries are a great option, and dried green grapes work, too.
Sweet potatoes are a healthier option than plain white bulk potatoes. You can make this dish in the pressure cooker and add pumpkin seeds, even some brown sugar, and grass-fed butter to add some serious flavor while also still using simple, natural ingredients.
This is a really simple dish to make -- all you need are the titular ingredients as well as a cast-iron skillet. Here's a great resource to get you started.
Chiropractic treatments are another great way to remain healthy in the midst of the holiday season. Contact Scorca Chiropractic today to learn more about who we are and what we do.
Hip pain can come about due to a number of variables, including too much exercise, sitting in an improper position for long periods of time, even an automobile accident.
Arthritis is probably the most common cause of chronic, long-term hip pain, an age-related condition that wears down the cartilage that surrounds the hip joint. Osteoarthritis is a common condition where this situation occurs.
Traumatic arthritis can occur when there is trauma to the joint, like a fracture, for instance. Infectious arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis can also cause hip pain due to attacking associated cartilage and even bone.
If you experience very sudden, severe hip pain, this could be the result of a hip fracture, in which case you would want to consult with a physician immediately.
Snapping hip syndrome, avascular necrosis, and osteonecrosis can also be the source of hip pain.
Chiropractic treatments have been shown to be beneficial to the back, neck, and spine, but also to your joints, including your hips. Chiropractic treatments have also been shown to provide drug-free pain relief, not to mention reduce or diminish arthritic symptoms.

As more and more of us work burdensome grinds during the week (and even on weekends, for some of us), it's becoming more important than ever to practice self-care. The business executive is one role that will certainly keep your schedule very busy, but it will also put a lot of wear and tear on your body and mind.
Below, we talk about how chiropractic care is essential for the business person, no matter what level. Scorca Chiropractic is committed to providing education and chiropractic treatments that will help you live a better, healthier life.
When you're at work, it's likely that you're either on your feet all day long, or you're sitting in a desk. Very few people can strike the perfect balance between standing and sitting. When we sit at our desks and stare at a screen, when we're driving to work hunched in front of our steering wheel, we're in awkward positions that distort our bodies, especially our spine.
Even though a lot happens in a business day, there's likely not much physical activity going on, especially for the business professional. Not all of our employers have the resources to equip our offices with gyms and yoga instructors like some of those start-ups like to do. That's why it's up to you to get your fitness in -- before or after hours. Chiropractic treatment is the perfect antidote for the work grind and the perfect companion to an active lifestyle.
Chiropractic treatments offer drug-free pain relief, which will keep you more productive for the long haul. Chiropractic adjustments will help your body and brain function at optimum capacity, not to mention bolster your internal systems, keeping your GI tract, immune system, and central nervous system working at their best.
