Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is quite saddened when we hear that one of our patients is diagnosed with cancer. We certainly want to be part of your support system as you go through your care, but we hope that we can be a large part of your health promotion as you face cancer and its treatment. We may even share some tips to prevent cancer. Attention to diet, lifestyle and self-care plays a big role. Your Augusta chiropractic team is here for you.
Augusta chiropractic patients probably think of Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic for back pain and neck pain and related spinal pain issues. That’s logical and well-documented that the chiropractor is often the go-to provider for such pain relief. We work well with our medical colleagues for your benefit. As a matter of fact, integrative care for subacute lower back pain is shown to be positive for reducing pain and bothersomeness as well as improving functional status. (1) We can work with you, our Augusta cancer patient, and your cancer-care physician, too.
How? Maybe just with some nutritional and diet advice. We keep up with the latest in lifestyle and nutrition information. For example, a recent study out of Norway found that women’s risk of colorectal cancer was reduced by 35% following a health food index of fish, cabbage, rye bread, oatmeal, root vegetables, pears and apples. (2) Selenium may reduce the risk of pancreatic cancer. (3) A lack of Vitamin D increases the risk of fractures as well as many diseases like cancer, type 2 diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular, hypertension, infectious and autoimmune diseases. (4) So eat well (maybe consider supplements) to get your vitamins and minerals!
Just know that Lombardy Chiropractic Clinicis here to do whatever may benefit your overall supportive cancer care. Our Augusta chiropractic manipulation is a positive. A new study reports that a higher percentage of cancer survivors use complementary and alternative therapies like chiropractic to manage symptoms of the disease. The most common therapies include
- vitamin/mineral supplements,
- prayer for self,
- intercessory prayer,
- chiropractic/osteopathic manipulation and
- herbal therapies. (5)
