The True Cause Of Most Headaches

headaches treatment in san franciscoWe have been providing treatment for headaches in San Francisco since 1992.

I know a little bit about headaches. When I was 23 years old and starting my career as a stockbroker I began to experience migraine headaches. They became progressively worse to the point I could no longer function normally. In fact, I became bedridden and developed an allergic reaction to the pain medication Percodan. It was not much fun.

I saw my family doctor, a headaches specialist, neurologist, ear, nose and throat doctor, a brain surgeon and a TMJ specialist. Nothing worked. I had blood tests, hearing tests, brain scans, MRI, cat scans and every test under the sun. At one point I was told to brace for the worst because my headaches had come on suddenly and that was a red flag.

Not once did anyone suggest that the cause could be physical. Not once did anyone mention the NECK as a possible cause or origination point of the headaches?

It wasn’t until one of my clients, a chiropractor, called me at home to see how I was doing. He told me that chiropractors had great success with headaches and that in spite of everything I had been through there wa a very high likelihood he could help. I did not know him that well at the time but I would have tried anything at that point.

Well, he took x-rays of my spine and did an exam. He told me I had pinched nerves in my neck and that this was a primary cause of headaches. I said how come all these medical experts never said anything about this? He said that’s a good question…one I hear every day.

Now this chiropractor was so busy that his waiting room looked like a Greyhound Bus terminal. To me thi could only be possible if he was helping people. So I gave it a shot. I did have a positive experience in high school with a chiropractor when I had suffered an injury to my neck playing football. As it would turn out, this was part of my headaches problem. Previous injuries  can create fertile soil for future problems.

Anyway, after just one visit I could tell I was feeling better. After a few weeks my headaches were almost gone. But get this…I still did not believe the chiropractic got rid of the headaches. I thought it was a coincidence. So as soon as I felt better I stopped.  The headaches came back. Then I thought it didn’t work. I know now this is a typical sequence of events.

In any case, I returned to the chiropractor (who ended up becoming my best friend)with my tail between my legs and finished what I started. I have been headaches free since. Not only that, it was because of this experience that I decided to switch gears and become a chiropractor. I became fascinated with it It was the best decision I have ever made.

My story is not unique…many chiropractors have their personal story of what lead them  into the profession. It’s one of the special bonds chiropractors have with each other.

I have been a chiropractor for over 22 years now and I have personally treated over 10,000 headaches patients. Because of my personal experience I was able to understand what they were going through and effectively treat the overwhelming majority of them.

In my opinion, the true cause of most headaches are misalignments (vertebral subluxations) in the neck. And the best treatment for headaches is chiropractic. And research supports this. Cjeck-out this article on the great chiropractic consumer website Chiro-Trust.org entitled The Neck and Headache Connection.

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?


carpal tunnel treatment san franciscoWe have been providing treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and related disorders in San Francisco for over 22 years now. 

Here is an excerpt from an article on the great chiropractic consumer website Chiro-trust.org entitled Carpal Tunnel Syndrome-What Is It?:

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) basically occurs when pressure is applied to the median nerve as it travels through the wrist on the palm side resulting in numbness, tingling, pain, and later, weakness of the grip and pinch functions. But, the median nerve can be pinched at many other locations as it courses down from the neck to the hand, which is why we examine and treat the CTS patient from the neck down! The median nerve has been described as the “eye of the hand,” as it is one of the three major nerves formed from the brachial plexus– that “highway” of nerves made up of the C5-T2 roots leaving the neck, merging together to eventually form the three main nerves of the arm. Because the median nerve function regulates pinch and grip strength, buttoning a shirt, writing a note, driving a car, and even sleeping are ALL affected by a median nerve pinch.

So, since the median nerve originates in the neck, and carpal tunnel symptoms are mostly in the hand, the neck-hand connection is often overlooked by doctors and therapist that do not routinely treat CTS.

Our carpal tunnel doctors in San Francisco have been treating CTS since before the dotcom boom-bust. In fact, we have successfully treated over 20,000 cases of carpal tunnel symptoms and upper extremity disorders. The secret is to ALWAYS examine and treat from the neck to the fingertips…on both sides. At our clinic we also check the entire spine and feet. A pedal imbalance such as a pronation or short leg can cause cervical muscle spams and interfere with nerve transmission to the hands. Interesting Huh?

Bottom Line:  Carpal Tunnel Symptoms are nothing to mess around with. You use your hands for everything. Patients with chronic hand pain are often depressed and have other problems such as sleeping disorders and lowered immune function. It’s a chain reaction that can overwhelm your life.

The good news is that a chiropractor that specializes in CTS can help…and results are usually seen right away.

Sciatica Relief in San Francisco

sciatica relief in SFWe have been providing treatment for Sciatica in San Francisco for over 22 years now.

The majority of the time, sciatica (leg pain) is the result of Pinched Nerves in the low back (lumbar spine). Pinched nerves or nerve roots are mostly caused by herniated or bulging discs.

Pinched lumbar nerves can also be asymptomatic. That’s right, you can have a herniated disc in the lumbar spine and have no symptoms. In fact, unless there is a trauma, herniated discs usually develop over time and the symptoms such as sciatica happen after the problem has been there for a while.

When a chiropractic patient presents with new symptoms of sciatica they have a tendency to think the problem is new…and it is in a way…but the cause has usually been there a while if the cause is a bulging or herniated disc, which it usually is.

That’s the bad news. The good news is that herniated and bulging discs in the low back, and the low back pain and sciatica they cause, respond favorably to gentle chiropractic care.

In the event that sciatica does not respond to chiropractic care we have nonsurgical spinal decompression with the DRX9000 as a “next step”.

Spinal decompression systems are designed and built to treat lumbar disc herniations, bulging discs, spinal stenosis, facet syndrome, and degenerative disc disease. The DRX9000 is safe, gentle and effective. It’s also painless. Sure, some get sore in the beginning, but that’s how it is with most treatments that are physical in nature.

So there you go. If you are suffering with low back pain or sciatica or both, you may have a herniated disc in the low back.

Your best bet is to find a doctor that treats herniated discs on a regular basis and does so nonsurgically. We are the clinic with the most experience treating herniated discs in SF. We also have a team of medical doctors, physical therapists, athletic trainers, and nutrition experts.

To find out if you are a candidate for Sciatica Relief in San Francisco please call 415-392-2225.

What’s The Best Treatment For Neck Pain?

neck pain treatment in san franciscoWe have been providing treatment for neck pain in San Francisco for over 22 years now. 

Neck pain is very common. About 70% of us will experience neck pain at some point in our lifetime. And once we do, relapses are common. On any given day, millions will be suffering with neck pain.

Chronic neck pain is also very common. Chronic neck pain is neck pain that persists for over 90 days. The #1 risk factor for chronic neck pain is previous neck pain.

So what’s the best treatment for neck pain?

Here is an excerpt from an article I found on the great website Chiro-Trust.org entitled Neck Pain and Chiropractic which gives a pretty good overview of what the current research says:

A recent study on neck pain patients compared the effectiveness of manual therapy performed by a chiropractor, physical therapy performed by a physical therapist (PT), and medical care performed by medical physician (MD). The success rate determined at the seventh week was TWO TIMES BETTER for the manual therapy/chiropractic group (68.3%) compared to the medical care group. Those receiving manual therapy also had fewer absences from work compared to both the medical and PT treated groups. Lastly, both the manual therapy and PT groups used less pain relief medication compared to the medically treated group. Another study looked at the multiple approaches that chiropractors use for treating patients with neck pain to determine the “best” approach a chiropractor can use. They reported 94% had improvement or less neck pain after just one treatment when the mid-back (thoracic spine) was also adjusted. Similarly, after receiving two treatments over a one week time frame, the group receiving midback adjustments (vs. the group who did not) reported lower pain and disability scores. A similar study concluded that the best results occurred when the neck, upper back/lower neck, and mid-back were adjusted. This group, when compared to neck adjustments alone, reported greater reductions in disability scores. Thus, having the cervical spine, upper back, and mid-back all adjusted appears to yield quicker, more satisfying results than neck adjustments alone. Read full article here.

The article goes on to explain how chiropractic adjustments to the neck and upper back, as well as low tech exercises are the best treatment for neck pain…even better than medical treatment and physical therapy.

This should not come as a surprise to most chiropractors. However, when a typical person experiences neck pain,  a chiropractor is not usually the first place they go…but they should. And research supports it.

So there you go. Chiropractic seems to be the best treatment for neck pain. Chiropractic is safe, gentle, and 100% natural. It’s just a smart thing to do :-)

Spinal Decompression in Downtown San Francisco

spinal decompression san francisco

Spinal Decompression Therapy with the DRX9000 in SF.

We have been providing spinal decompression therapy in the San Francisco Financial District for over 10 years now. 

We were the first to introduce the DRX9000 lumbar decompression machine to San Francisco. A while later we purchased a DRX9000c cervical decompression machine so that we could treat both lumbar and cervical disc bulges and herniations.

During this time we have helped thousands of back and neck pain patients return to more normal active lifestyles. Hundreds have avoided back or neck surgery.

Low back pain and sciatica is the most common presentation of a lumbar disc herniation. Often times there just are not many treatment options. Most of the patients that seek us out for spinal decompression therapy have tried many forms of treatment with little to no success.

A typical herniated disc patient will have tried pain pills, muscle relaxers, cortisone, physical therapy, and maybe even acupuncture and chiropractic. Sometimes nothing seems to help. This is when many consider back or neck surgery.

Fortunately, there is a wealth of information online about the DRX9000 and the DRX9000c and those that do their homework are able to discover clinics such as our San Francisco Spinal Decompression Center.

Spinal decompression machines are designed and built to treat neurovascular compression syndromes such as bulging and herniated cervical and lumbar spinal discs, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, Facet Syndrome and even failed back surgery.

Disc decompression therapy elongates the spine, enlarges the disc space, strengthens the spinal muscles and ligaments, re-positions and re-hydrates the injured spinal disc and restores lost motion and function.

Spinal decompression machines are like respirators for the spinal disc. They help the disc to do what they would do if they could…until they can.

Does spinal decompression heal every single herniated disc patient?

NO…just most of them.

How do I know if I am a good candidate for spinal decompression?

You need to find a local doctor that has a spinal decompression machine and have a decompression evaluation and assessment. If you have x-rays or MRI bring them along with you to the apt.

If you want to find out if you are a candidate for lumbar or cervical spinal decompression at our SF Financial District clinic then you need to contact us.

Call our San Francisco Spinal Decompression Clinic at 415-392-2225. Ask for a complimentary consultation.

Chiropractic and the Long Distance Runner

mike pound meb keflezighi SF

Executive Express Chiropractic’s Dr. Mike Pound and Olympic Silver Medal Winner Meb Keflezighi in for a tune-up!

We have been providing chiropractic treatment for Runners in San Francisco for over 22 years.

The physical demands on the body of the long distance runner are intense. There are so many things that need to be right, and at the top of the list is spinal alignment and the alignment of the pedal foundation, leg lengths and the human frame.

Just about all professional, collegiate, and amateur (competition) runners these days include chiropractic adjustments as part of their regimen for staying healthy and preparing for and recovering from races.

 Meb Keflezighi is an Olympic Silver medalist who makes sure to get adjusted frequently to stay in top form.

There are many types of running injuries, from shin splints, to ankle sprains, to knee problems, hip issues, Plantar Fasciitis, Turf Toe type problems and on and on.

In addition, many runners often develop low back and neck pain because of poor bio-mechanics or overuse syndromes.

The modern sports chiropractor will have at their disposal many new technologies such as deep tissue laser therapy, rock tape, custom foot orthotics, electronic gait testing, and Active Release Techniques (ART) to name a few.  Most proficient sports chiropractors are able to adjust the extremities including the feet, knees, and hips as well as the spine.

Now,  not all sports chiropractors are equal. Many chiropractors in San Francisco can treat some sports injuries. But if you are an elite athlete and a long distance runner, you want to visit a clinic that specializes in treating sports injuries like we do.

How Much Sleep Do You Need?

chiropractic sleeping SF

Chiropractic Adjustments and Sleeping Better

Providing Chiropractic and Better Sleep in San Francisco for over 22 years.

Everyone knows what it feels like to not get enough sleep. Not only are you tired the next day you are irritable too. You are also more prone to illness and injury as your immune system is depressed and your decision making impaired. In fact, chronic sleep deprivation, and there are millions that suffer with this, can shorten your lifespan.

So how much sleep do you need? Well, it varies according to age. Here is an excerpt from an article on the great chiropractic website Chiro-Trust.org entitled Chiropractic and Sleep that gives a detailed overview of the sleep demands of the body by age:

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), sleep is a “neurobiologic need.” Think of it like recharging a battery, except the battery is your brain! The optimum amount of sleep needed changes with age. Infants need nine to ten hours at night AND three or more hours of naps, while toddlers need the same nine hours at night but two to three hours/less daytime naps. School age children do best with nine to eleven hours and adults with seven to eight hours. When sleep-deprived (>1-2 hrs of less than normal sleep), daytime napping needs increase as well as the need for longer nighttime sleep. Without establishing a sleep cycle or when interrupting the normal circadian rhythm (cycle of sleep and wakefulness), long- term problems can arise. This can occur as a result of missing as little as one to two hours a night. Though many claim and even brag about only needing a few hours of sleep a night, it is reported that they are less able to perform well on complex mental tasks compared with those who get closer to seven hours of nighttime sleep. It has also been reported that a higher mortality rate is associated with getting less OR much more than seven hours of sleep per night.

So, there you go. Of course we are all different and have our individual sleep requirements that work best for us. When we are unable to meet these requirements things just do not work right. As described above, sleep is a “neurobiologic need”. There is no way around it…we need it to function properly.

The bad news is, millions suffer from sleeping disorders such as insomnia and other related sleep disorders that are often connected to stress, lifestyle, diet, and underlying conditions or disease processes. Some have suffered their entire lives and take medication daily, further complicating the issue.

The good news is, chiropractic adjustments, exercise, massage, plant based nutrition, meditation and acupuncture, are (all natural) lifestyle modifications (to name a few) that can be made to instantly improve sleep and quality of life.

Activities like Yoga actually act as exercise and meditation combined.

As a chiropractor in San Francisco I have personally helped thousands that have reported difficulty sleeping. Chiropractic adjustments can help you sleep better.

So, if you are having trouble sleeping, consider making a trip to a chiropractor. Chances are…you will be glad you did :-)

Sciatica Treatment in San Francisco

spinal decompression SF

Spinal Decompression Therapy SF

We have been providing treatment for Sciatica in San Francisco for over 22 years now.

Recently, Executive Express Chiropractic (EEC) as acquired by Chiro-Medical Group, Inc. Chiro-Medical Group (CMG) is a team of medical doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, athletic trainers and staff that are highly trained in the area of sports medicine and chronic pain syndromes.

What this means to you is we now have the ability to combine nonsurgical spinal decompression at Executive Express Chiropractic with physical medicine at CMG, which is only a short walk away. Patients are reporting outstanding results so far.

Sciatica, which mean “pain in the leg” is caused primarily by pinched nerves in the low back due to herniated and bulging discs. These conditions tend to be progressive in nature and can become severe and debilitating.

Fortunately, sciatica responds favorably to conservative chiropractic care and exercises most of the time. It just depends on the nature and severity of your condition. In the event chiropractic fails to deliver favorable outcomes with chiropractic we will consider spinal decompression with the DRX9000 as a next step.

Spinal decompression machines are designed and built to treat neurovascular compression syndromes such as herniated discs, bulging discs, disc degeneration, and facet syndromes, naturally.

The treatment program is around 6-10 weeks depending on the severity of the problem and necessary rehab involved. If you have health insurance they will most likely cover some of the ancillary charges such as exercises, x-rays, medical consultations, blood work, physical therapy and home care supplies.

If you have been diagnosed with a herniated or bulging lumbar disc and are experiencing low back pain or sciatica then we would be glad to meet with you to discuss treatment options.

To find out if you are a candidate for low back pain and sciatica treatment in San Francisco please call 415-392-2225 and schedule a consultation with one of our back pain doctors. 

Chances are…you will be glad you did :-)

What Is Biopuncture?

biopuncture in san francisco

Biopuncture For Sports Injuries in San Francisco

Biopuncture in San Francisco

Executive Express Chiropractic at the Embarcadero Center was recently acquired by Chiro-Medical Group, Inc. The new name of the clinic is Chiro-Medical Group, Express (CMGE).

In addition to chiropractic care, spinal decompression, and deep tissue laser, CMGE will also be used as an entry point for many advanced sports medicine and chronic pain relief procedures and therapies available at the primary clinic just a short walk away. One of these therapies is called Biopuncture and is performed by Dr. Lee Wolfer, MD.

Here is an excerpt from the Biopuncture page of the Chiro-Medical Group website:

About Biopuncture:

Biopuncture is a therapy whereby specific body locations are injected with biologically active substances which are physiologically regulating. These substances are used to treat pain, swelling, inflammation and toxin accumulation, among other problems. Most injections cause only minor discomfort because they are very shallow, given just under the skin or into the muscle.

What kinds of products are injected?

Products commonly used in Biopuncture are, for example arnica, Echinacea, and chamomile. Arnica is used for muscle pain and Echinacea is used to boost your body’s immune system. Biopuncturists usually inject a mixture of natural products. Traumeel for example is used for inflammation in the setting of sports injuries and inflammation. Zeel is used for chronic joint pain. Spascupreel is used for muscle spasms/cramps. Lymphomyosot is utilized for lymphatic drainage in chronically swollen or congested tissues. These products are combined with a local anesthetic medicine like lidocaine.

Are products safe for me?

The solutions are not in high concentration. They contain diluted products. Therefore, toxic side effects are very unlikely. The medications used in Biopuncture are manufactured by companies that guarantee the production quality of their products. Most of the solutions are made in Germany, under strict quality control regulations. Clinical studies on thousands of patients have confirmed the safety of solutions like Traumeel and Zeel.

How can these dilutions actually have an effect on my body?

The fact that most solutions contain low concentrations of plant extracts is often a reason for conventional physicians to criticize the possible effects of these products. Products used in Biopuncture are not diluted to the extent that the solution contains no active product (as in homeopathy). That’s why we call them “micro-doses.” How does this small dose influence the body? A good example is to think of a tetanus vaccination – only small amounts of the product are necessary to stimulate your immune system (= your defense system) against lockjaw. A few injections can protect your body for several years against this serious disease. Biopuncture injections are not vaccinations of course; however, the mechanism is similar: small doses of the right product can have a strong effect. Biopuncture produces its clinical effects because it stimulates your own immune system and restarts your healing capacity. (The medications used in Biopuncture have no relation whatsoever to the current controversy over childhood immunizations). Go here for full article about Biopuncture in San Francisco

So there you go. Biopuncture is not magic but for difficult to treat musculoskeletal injuries, detoxification, and functional restoration, it just might be a logical treatment option for you.

To find out if you are a candidate for Biopuncture in San Francisco with Dr. Lee Wolfer, MD please call 415-495-2225 and mention this blog post.
