My Dad had spine surgery a year ago is has nerve damage {nerves are asleep}. Will laser chiropratic help?

My problem is my weight! After 4 kids and at age 40 I'm 270 lbs. And can't seem to find any diet that work. It's not like I eat a lot, I do understand that here in Arkansas. Beans potatoes. Cornbread are the norm but I also bake all my meat never fried I have salads and veggys with all meals and believe it or not I'm not a junk food eater.. I do admit I drink diet coke more then I shoshould but I've tried everything from every over the counter pill to Atkins. Of coarse my Dr don't prescribe diet pills and as a mother of 4 it's not as if surgery would ever be affordable. I work from 4 am to 2 and I try my dvds. And walks but honestly I don't understand how I'm so large. When I truly don't eat a lot. Also I never have bm. I know it sounds silly but sometimes it's 6 or 7 days without bowel movement and it's not hard when I do go. In fact it's very soft and very small.. Like pinky finger small. Yes I use clearlax. Which in return I feel full so I don't eat much so I don't know if that has any thing to do with why I'm so heavy but I guess my question is what should a person in my case do to lose weight?

Hello, I have been lifting weight for a while, and I would like to start a new diet and check what is the best food to eat and what supplements I should take. So I would like to know who does this kind of treatment, and how much is the cost to make an appointment ? Thank you.

I had hype surgery 11 years ago at Columbia Presbyterian and I know weigh 250. Is there an addition procedure I can have done to lose 100 more pounds????

I've heard that acupuncure may increase collagen production. Is this true? Please advise.

I am a PGA Golf Professional. I make my living teaching, facilitating and sometimes playing the game of golf. For a number of years I have suffered with two, sometimes debilitating, physical conditions, which are not uncommon, lower back pain and joint pain. Getting up and out in the morning was a real chore. Not good for anyone, but it's even worse when your livelihood depends on you being very active.

I have a severely herniated disc in my lower back. I don?t know how long I've had the condition but it has been a problem for a couple of decades. When I have had flair-ups, my doctor treated me with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and he would recommend physical therapy. Each had a modest positive effect on reducing the pain but neither eliminated it. My last visit to this doctor ended with a rather bleak outlook. He didn't want to continue with the drugs and neither did I. He didn't think the problem was severe enough the warrant surgery so the physical therapy was about it. I knew it was helping, so I continued with this, on my own. For the most part, I was able to stay ahead of the pain.

After my last episode with my back, a few months ago, I started treatments with Dr. Rice. The results have been remarkable. My back problem is virtually non-existent. I still have a little stiffness early in the morning but no pain. My flexibility is returning, which is a very good thing.

The second condition I have is a severely damaged ankle. It was broken several decades ago and has been a problem ever since with constant pain and swelling and very little flex/extension range of motion. Often I couldn't put any weight on the ankle at all. Not good. Although I went to Dr Rice because of my back problem, the improvement in my ankle has been a very nice surprise. I don't know if there is any difference in the range of motion but there is virtually no pain. Very often I had to wear some sort of ankle brace just to get around. I still wear an ankle support from time to time but it is only precautionary.

When I tell people how good I feel, they think I'm exaggerating. People who have known me and have seen me at my worst know how much of an improvement there is. Whenever someone I know complains about aches and pains, I tell them my story and how I have been helped. Then I tell them to go see Dr. Rice. Regards to anyone who reads this. I hope it provides an incentive to at least try this approach.
