Pazdel Chiropractic

Dr. Pazdel has always been fascinated by how the human body produces responses to interventions from man. When he began his college career, he set out to study this phenomenon and to pursue a career in Genetic Engineering. While attending San Jose State University, Dr. Pazdel suffered a career altering injury to his low back.

Like so many individuals, Dr. Pazdel began what evolved into several months of traditional medical care and therapy with no relief. One of his family members suggested that he seek care from a Chiropractor in the area. Within a couple of visits to the Chiropractor, his low back pain had subsided significantly. Following the completion of his treatment plan, Dr. Pazdel was completely relieved of the pain.

Feeling energized by the experience, Dr. Pazdel began researching Chiropractic methods of heath treatment. Following undergraduate work at San Jose State University, he enrolled in Life Chiropractic College West and graduated in 1990. After becoming licensed by the state of California, Dr. Pazdel began practicing as a Doctor of Chiropractic in a very large practice in Yuba City, California. Following a transfer to Fairfield, California, he purchased the practice in 1995 where every day he continues to be energized by how the human body produces responses to interventions from man and how efficiently Chiropractic care works for the healing of so many disorders and injuries. Dr. Pazdel feels truly blessed to have a career that he loves and to touch the lives of so many patients in a positive way.

How CHIROPRACTIC Adjustments Change the BRAIN - The Source Chiropractic

How a CHIROPRACTIC Adjustment Change the BRAIN 

Dr. Lance von Stade shares with us the concepts of "neuroplasticity" and "Synaptogenesis" - this is how the brain changes and creates new connections. 

When there is lack of movement within each vertebrae it changes the signaling to the brain... eventually resulting in atrophy (brain shrinking)

A chiropractic adjustment restores motion into areas of the spine, changing the signaling to the brain.

Other Tips : Back Pain in Kids and Teens (for Kids and Teens)

Will I get back pain?
You might think you won’t get back pain until you’re grown up. But changes in the way we live mean that children can be prone to back pain too. In fact, studies show that almost half of all secondary school pupils are likely to get back pain at some time. Problems can begin as early as primary school, so you are never too young to start taking good care of your back.

What causes back pain?
Normal daily activities and certain habits can trigger back pain – either now, or in the future. The common causes of back pain in children are listed below.
  • Schoolbags – especially when they are carried incorrectly, too heavy, or poorly designed
  • Posture – too much slouching and slumping
  • Sitting – for too long, or on the wrong furniture
  • Exercise – not taking enough, or overdoing it using the wrong technique
  • Diet – too much junk food can cause weight gain which places extra stress on the body
  • Growing up – even growth spurts can cause temporary back problems!
What is back pain like?
Back pain is no fun at all. Many people don’t realize how much they use their backs for everyday activities until pain strikes. Back pain not only stops you from taking part in sporting activities; it can sometimes prevent even basic movements such as sitting, standing, bending and walking.

How can I protect my back?
Luckily, back pain can usually be avoided. There are many things you can do to help yourself build a stronger back. Here are some tips on how to avoid back pain or if you have had it in the past, to prevent it coming back again.

It’s not only the weight of your backpack that can cause back pain – it’s the style of bag and how you carry it that really counts!Look for a sturdy bag with padded straps and a waist-belt and wear it over both shoulders. Pack your heaviest objects first. This will stop you from arching and take the weight off your shoulders. Adjust straps so that your bag sits snugly against your entire back

School Furniture
Students come in many shapes and sizes, but most of the desks and chairs in your classrooms do not! If you work at a flat table, rather than a sloping desk, you will need to try hard to keep a good posture. You can stop yourself slouching by imagining you have a string attached to the top of your head which is lifting you into a tall upright position. Make the most of your chair. Pull it close to your desk and sit back in your seat.

Your body is not designed to sit still for too long. Try to stand up and stretch during lessons and make the most of break time by keeping active

Leisure Time
Achieving a good level of fitness is one of the best things you can do for your back. But studies show that more and more children are shunning traditional after school activities, such as football or swimming, in favor of TV and game consoles. To ward off back pain, Dr. Pazdel recommends that children use their leisure time as a chance to focus on physical activity. Regular exercise will strengthen your spine.

Exercise also helps you develop stronger muscles. Strong tummy muscles make it much easier for you to keep a good posture.

Physical activity can also boost self-esteem. If you are confident and body aware, you are much more likely to stand tall and upright which will help protect your back.

What you eat is also important. A sensible, healthy diet will keep your weight in check and help you avoid putting unnecessary stress on your joints.

Homework and Use of Computers
If homework tests more than just your brain, it might be worth thinking about changing how and where you sit! Following the tips below should prevent back and neck pain setting in.
  • If you use a PC, or a laptop, make sure your screen is at eye level. This will stop you craning your neck as you work. Your mouse/keyboard should also be within easy reach.
  • Sit on a supportive chair. Your feet should touch the ground or be on a footrest.
  • Take lots of short breaks. This will give your body a chance to loosen up and prevent stiffness
If pain strikes?
If you are suffering from back pain let your parents or guardians know. They will be able to arrange an appointment with Dr. Pazdel. Gentle exercise and stretches can help reduce pain and stop it from coming back. Dr. Pazdel will be able to show you how to do the exercises properly and provide other helpful advice.

Remember – prevention is better than cure!

Other Tips : Back Pain in Kids and Teens (for Parents)

While back pain is very common for adults, kids are much more resilient and flexible and do not suffer the same types of back injuries to which adults are subject. In fact, medically significant back pain in children and teens is infrequently encountered, with even fewer cases in younger children.

Because children rarely suffer from back pain, any complaint by a child or teenager about acute or chronic back pain is taken very seriously by Pediatricians, and usually will result in a detailed consultation that will include a review of the child's medical history and a physical exam.

Suspicious episodes of pain, or any concerning features of the pain, will result in radiological studies (such as an x-ray or MRI scan) and possibly a referral to a specialist for further examination and diagnostic tests.

The most common causes of back pain in children and teens tend to be somewhat age-dependent:

Younger children are less likely to be putting their spine under the same severe stresses as older children and adults. Thus, for the most part younger children do not have medically significant back pain and their discomfort tends to be short-lived. Also, younger children tend to self-limit their activity, choosing not to repeat painful activities, which aids in their recovery if an episode of back pain does occur.

At a young age, if a child has severe or recurring back pain there is greater concern for the possibility of a serious condition, such as a spinal tumor, growth, or an infection of the spine.

Older children tend to be more aggressive in their activities and sports, thereby increasing the risk of injury to the bones, nerves and soft tissues in the spine. Teenagers are also more likely to test the limits of their bodies, often being exhorted by commercial advertising and/or peer pressure to push the envelope.

At this point, compression fractures are more commonplace, and we begin to see occasional disc injuries. Older pediatric patients also can injure the joints between vertebral bones, causing painful stress injuries. Only very rarely do the nerve roots become compromised.

Slightly older children can be convinced to minimize their activity to speed up healing times, but then they frequently return to the same injurious behavior that caused the initial damage. Here, older kids may also find themselves the victims of their own intermittent inactivity and suffer overuse injuries, similar to an adult who is a "weekend warrior." For most injuries, the treatment of choice is usually a short period of rest with an eye towards developing and maintaining physical conditioning.

Potential Causes of Back Pain in Children and Teens
While adults can have vertebral disc injuries involving rupture, protrusion or slipping, and compression, these problems are uncommon in children. However, as kids age and their bodies mature, it becomes more likely that an injury to the spinal discs may occur and cause pain.

Importantly, pediatricians are starting to see a new form of injury in school-age children and teens become more common: overuse injuries and back strain caused by carrying back packs that are too heavy.

Often, backpacks may equal 20% to 40% of the child's own body weight (equivalent to a 150-pound adult carrying a 30 to 60-pound back pack around 5 days a week). This amount of weight understandably creates a great deal of strain on the child's spine. Additional strain is caused when children and teens carry the backpack over one shoulder, causing an uneven load on the spine.

While scoliosis (curvature of the spine) is not an uncommon diagnosis among teenagers, it is very rare that scoliosis will cause back pain. Teens with scoliosis may develop back pain, just as other teenagers, but it has not been found that people with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis are any more likely to develop back pain than the rest of the population.

As kids' sporting events become more competitive and the activities more specialized, certain types of injuries tend to arise. Spondylosis, a defect of the joint between vertebral bones, is commonly found in those who tend to hyperextend their backs (bend backwards), such as gymnasts. This injury may actually represent a stress fracture and the period of rest and recuperation may be extensive - up to 4 to 6 weeks.

Occasionally, further injury can be found as spondylolisthesis, a "slipping" of one vertebra upon another. This condition can progress through adolescence, and if it results in instability and pain it may require spinal fusion surgery at a later point.

Disc Injuries and Vertebral Fractures
Teens who tend to punish their spines through gymnastics or extreme sports (such as skateboarding, inline skating, and vert biking) will frequently land very hard on their feet or buttocks. Either way, the force is transmitted to their vertebrae, which can result in a vertebral fracture and/or damage to the intervertebral discs.

If the disc material is extruded out or herniated, the spinal cord nerve roots leaving the cord can be compressed. This causes the sensation of pain along the path of that nerve. A well-known version of this is sciatica, which presents as buttock pain radiating down the back of a leg. Conservative measures are usually the first line of treatment for this type of pain (such as physical therapy, medications, osteopathic or chiropractic manipulation). If these treatments do not provide sufficient pain relief, patients may require surgery (e.g. a microdiscectomy or discectomy) to relieve pressure on the nerve.

Of constant concern to physicians is the diagnosis of infection of the spine (discitis) in children. An infection of the spine is of great consequence and requires prompt diagnosis. Diagnosis of an infection is usually made with the assistance of a good physical exam and laboratory data. Signs of inflammation may be present (e.g. redness, swelling) even to the level of the skin. Radiographic studies are frequently normal. Treatment may consist of antibiotics if bacteria are found to be the cause of the infection. Again, prolonged rest is the primary treatment.

Another major concern for pediatricians is potential for a tumor in the spine in children. Luckily, this is a very rare occurrence. As with infection of the spine, the diagnosis hinges on obtaining a good medical history, physical exam, and the suspicious nature of physicians when they cannot get an otherwise satisfactory diagnosis to explain the child's symptoms. Treatment once again depends upon the final diagnosis and the skills of several subspecialties.

As you may have noted, rest and careful monitoring of symptoms seems to be the answer for most diagnoses. This is because the vast majority of back pain problems in children are related to soft tissue damage (such as muscles, ligaments and tendons), which is often caused by overuse or strain.

Surgery for back pain in children is very rare, and is usually only considered for the more severe cases. If the child's pain is severe, and he or she is having difficulty functioning, then surgery may be considered.

Most importantly, a careful process of elimination of medically more significant causes of back pain (such as tumor, infection, fracture) should always precede any therapeutic plan.
