Is the back and/or neck pain you deal with every day making you miss out on important life events? Did you see your regular doctor and was told surgery was your only option? In most cases, surgery is not your only option! You may be able to live a pain-free life, without surgery or medication. This is where the need for a chiropractor comes into play.

Chiropractors are trained professionals who care for patients specifically with health problems of the neuromusculoskeletal system.

If the pain is too much to bear and you’re ready for a change, read these tips to find the best chiropractor for you.

How to Know When You Need One

The most common misconception about chiropractors is that they only know how to treat backs and necks. Let them find the best care treatment for you based on your condition.

If You Suffer From…

  • Chronic back pain
  • Chronic neck pain
  • Herniated discs
  • Degenerative discs
  • Sciatica
  • Facet syndrome
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Injuries caused by an accident
  • Knee pain
  • Neuropathy

Did you nod your head ‘yes’ to any condition(s) listed above? Now it’s time to find who’s right for you.

How Can I Find the Best Chiropractor Near Me?

Finding a good chiropractor requires some research. Review websites are helpful for seeing which professionals are in your area. Ask friends and family or even a physical therapist for referrals.

After you’ve narrowed it down to a few potential options, it’s time to take a look at their experience.

Understand Their Area of Expertise

Making sure you choose the best chiropractor for you and your condition(s) is an important factor. Normally, if they have a website, you can find an about page with information on the doctors.

Sometimes, the practice will have multiple doctors working within it because they all have experience with different health conditions. It’s best to call and ask for a consultation.

One thing to remember: make sure they have a licensure. This entails if the chiropractor has the proper training and skills.

Questions to Ask

It’s always good to know who will be treating you. Here are some questions to ask to ensure you choose the best chiropractor suited for you.

  • What technique does he or she use and why?
  • Do they use their hands or an instrument?
  • Are they experienced in treating problems similar to yours?
  • How many years have they been in practice?

Don’t allow just anyone to treat you. You need a professional who’s qualified and has the experience.

Chiropractors You Can Trust

If you’re tired of the pain and think surgery is the only way to relieve it, talk to the chiropractors at Davis Clinic of Chiropractic. We give our patients the option to live without pain with our non-surgical procedures. No more going under the knife, no medication, no worries.

obesity and back pain

How Weight Loss Can Help Reduce Back Pain

By now, you’ve probably heard all about the negative effects of being overweight – risk of heart disease, Type 2 Diabetes, high blood pressure, and trouble breathing, to name a few. But, now there is one more side effect to add to the list – back pain.

Body Fat’s Effect on Joints

The American Obesity Association recently found that musculoskeletal pain (such as back pain) is 20% more likely to occur in those who are classified as obese.

Your body puts up with a lot on any given day. Each extra pound adds to the stress on your spine, which puts additional pressure on the soft tissue around your vertebrae. And, being overweight can shift your body’s center of gravity forward, which puts excess strain on your back muscles.

Along with the additional stress that goes along with weight gain, excess fat can also cause your spine to become unnaturally curved as it pulls your pelvis forward, which causes forward pressure on your spine.

Body Fat’s Effect on Your Body’s Natural Chemicals

Not only does belly fat put additional strain on your spine, it also causes excess release of inflammatory chemicals in your body. One of these chemicals is known as cortisol – a stress-induced chemical that promotes the storage of fat and increases the number of fat cells. Each of these fat cells releases inflammatory chemicals which weaken discs in the spine.

Not only do inflammatory chemicals slowly break down your spine, they also increase the risk of Metabolic Syndrome – a common precursor to heart disease and diabetes.

How to Reduce Back Pain Caused by Excess Weight

If you suffer from back pain, there’s a very real chance that it could be exacerbated by excess weight. If this is the case, then the best way to ease back pain is to start losing weight. But don’t take our word for it – Chiropractor, Dr. Jason Davis of the Davis Clinic of Chiropractic in The Villages® community says:

“Staying within ten pounds of your recommended weight can do wonders for your spine. Some back pain may be avoidable –simply by maintaining a healthy weight.”

How do you maintain a healthy weight, you ask? The answer is much simpler than most would like – eat less and move more. But, it’s not just eating less, it’s eating less of the wrong foods and eating more of the right foods. Including anti-inflammatory foods to help fight pain. Unfortunately, there’s no miracle pill or overnight cure.

Weight Loss Program The Villages® Community

Maintaining a healthy weight may be hard, but you do not have to do it alone! The Davis Clinic of Chiropractic offers an amazing new treatment called Zerona Laser Therapy – a new treatment that helps kickstart your body’s fat burning capabilities. When used in conjunction with diet and exercise, Zerona Laser Therapy has allowed some of our patients to lose up to 40 pounds in 6 weeks!

Not only is Zerona completely effective, it’s also completely safe! Zerona is the only weight loss solution of It’s kind that has been approved by the FDA as completely safe!

If you suffer from back pain caused by excess body fat and weight, we can help you shed those pounds and relieve your pain. Contact us today at (352) 430-2121 to schedule an appointment to find out more about our weight loss program and back pain treatments.



During Valentine’s Day, it’s great to take some time to focus on all of our loved ones – family, friends, children, back…. Wait, what was that last one? Back? Don’t tell me you’ve forgotten what it’s like to be in love with your back! Let’s face it – over time, our bodies can let us down as we get older. It seems like with age comes more and more back pain – but it doesn’t have to be that way.

This Valentine’s Day, take some time to remember why you fell in love with your back in the first place.

  1. it supports you
  2. it bends over backward for you
  3. it moves you

But, treated poorly, or due to wear and tear, it can cause you pain. Show your back you love with these ways to minimize the strain put on your back.

Exercise

The first thing you can do for your back is exercise. If you suffer from back pain, a light workout will do wonders for your spine. It might seem counterintuitive, but exercise is a crucial step to maintaining growth and promoting healing. The stretching of muscles greatly speeds up the tissue repair process. Not to mention, maintaining a healthy weight will reduce muscle strain and drastically minimize back pain. But take it easy and consult with your doctor first.

Yoga/Stretching

Similarly, we’ve also found that Yoga is an amazing exercise for not only the body but also the mind. Get ready for the day by spending a few minutes stretching or doing yoga first thing in the morning. You will be surprised by how much this will help your back pain and your overall mood.

Hot and Cold Therapy

If you’re still experiencing pain after a moderate exercise, try lying down on top of a heating pad or an ice pack. Hot and Cold therapy is a great way to keep pain to a minimum. Try experimenting with both hot and cold temperatures and see which one works best for you.

Get a Good Night’s Sleep

Never underestimate the power of a good night’s sleep. At rest, your body begins to repair strained muscles and more! If you wake up with back pain, it could very well be your sleeping position. Experiment with different sleeping positions and see which one works best for you. An effective sleeping position for people with back pain is on your side with a pillow between your knees.

See a Chiropractor

If you’ve been suffering from chronic back pain for a while now, it’s time to treat yourself to an appointment with a chiropractor.

The Davis Clinic of Chiropractic in The Villages, Florida is committed to providing patients with a pain-free life. We specialize in completely safe, drug-free, non-surgical back and neck pain treatment. We are proud to provide patient-centered health care, which means we will work with you to develop a plan that works best for you and your lifestyle.

This year, we’ve treated thousands of patients around The Villages, Florida who were suffering from neck pain, back pain, neuropathy, knee pain, sciatica, herniated or bulging discs, and many more conditions.

This past year, we also saw a wide variety of patients who had given up hope on ever finding a solution to their chronic pain. Many of them had tried different treatments for decades, all to no avail. We’ve seen patients that were told surgery was the only option. We’ve also seen our fair share of patients that had undergone failed back surgeries, resulting in even worse pain than before.

Chronic pain had taken over the lives of many of our patients. They lost the ability to do simple things that they once loved. Biking, walking, even golfing nine holes became too much to handle. Not only does back pain keep you from doing the activities you love doing, it also takes away the freedom to live your life.

problem with painkillers

Prescription Painkiller Abuse

During National Chiropractic Health Month, we’re taking a look at the public health crisis caused by pain, and in particular the overuse of prescription painkillers. Prescription drug abuse is the number one cause of death in 17 U.S. states, surpassing motor vehicle accidents.

Numerous recent studies have shown the dangerous over reliance in the United States on prescription painkillers. Did you know that although Americans only make up 4.5% of the world’s population, they consume 80% of the world’s opioid supply? That means of all of the prescription painkillers in the world; Americans consume 80% of them! Over the last 20 years, there has been a 10-fold increase in the use of prescription painkillers. The United States is experiencing a national crisis – painkiller dependency, which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has declared an “epidemic.”

During 2013 alone, drug overdoses accounted for almost 44,000 deaths in the United States, an increase of 6% from 2012. So what’s going on? Why does the United States have such a problem with prescription painkillers?

Well, for one, it’s never been easier to get a prescription for drugs. Studies have shown that 48% of Americans have used at least one prescription drug in the last 30 days. Even more shocking – 1 in 10 Americans admit to having used at least 5 prescription drugs in the last 30 days. This can multiply the risk for drug-related health issues exponentially.

“We know that the number of adverse drug events a patient is likely to experience increases as the number of medications they are taking increases,” says Anne Burns, Senior Vice President for Professional affairs at the American Pharmacists Association. “You’ve got everything from potential interactions between medications to timing issues, taking a variety of medications throughout the day.”

This shows that not only are many Americans using prescription drugs, but also they’re overusing them in dangerous combinations.

Another reason that painkillers are so readily available for many people is the lack of attention by many medical professionals. Although this prescription drug problem exists, many Doctors are still willing to give patients prescriptions, even if they aren’t necessary. A common trend that exists among opiate drug users is that they will experience an injury or an accident that will require prescription painkillers. But, rather than using painkillers as a temporary way to manage the pain, they become dependent on them. The fact is – most painkillers have very addictive properties.

Pain Treatment without Medications

Although there may be times that a prescription drug may be needed, painkillers do not treat the condition, they only mask the pain. So, with approximately 10 million Americans suffer with chronic, persistent or disabling pain, what’s the solution?  Many conditions, such as chronic back pain, neck pain, knee pain, and neuropathy, can be treated without drugs and the side effects of taking prescription painkillers.

At the Davis Clinic of Chiropractic in The Villages, Florida, we provide an alternative to drugs and invasive procedures. Our treatment for chronic pain conditions doesn’t mask the pain, it treats it. We have helped thousands of patients find relief from back pain, neck pain, knee pain and the numbness and debilitating symptoms of neuropathy, and we can help you relieve your chronic pain once and for all.

Break the cycle of addictive, harmful medications. Give us a call today at (352) 430-2121 to see how we can help you lead a pain free life!

exercising for older adults

The Importance of Exercise and Fitness as We Age

Think about all of the activities you love to do: swimming, golfing, gardening, bike riding, hiking, walking, tennis, visiting with your grandkids. Will you still be able to do these activities in 5 -10 years?

As we age, we begin to lose muscle. Reduced muscle strength decreases balance and mobility and increases the risk of falls and fractures This is why it’s so important to live an active lifestyle now and especially well after we’re into our 60’s, 70’s, and beyond. Physical activity now will help to ensure that you can still enjoy for favorite activities down the road and can improve your quality of life, including:

  • reducing the risk of heart disease and diabetes
  • improving balance and reducing the risk of falls
  • reducing joint and muscle pain
  • making your body stronger and more resilient to pain
  • improving heart and lung health

Living in The Villages, Florida, there are plenty ways activities to keep you moving. Here are a few tips for how you can stay active.

Choose Enjoyable Activities

The key to maintaining an active lifestyle is to choose activities that you enjoy. Don’t choose an exercise routine that you don’t like, because it probably won’t last. Likewise, don’t push yourself too hard. Start slow and gradually increase your activity time to fit your own pace. Choosing a low impact, enjoyable activity can be a great way to squeeze in a little exercise such as golfing, bicycling, or walking the dog.

Stay Flexible and Strong

Along with maintaining an active lifestyle, something that can make a huge impact on your physical well-being is to stay flexible and increase strength. Do to the aging process, our bodies tend to be less resilient. By working out and stretching and strengthening muscles, we can improve the ability for our bodies to heal after injury and increase mobility. Some of exercises include:

  • Yoga
  • Practicing balance exercises to reduce the risk of falls
  • Lift Weights
  • Walk/Jog
  • Exercise Bands

Visit your Chiropractor

Many people believe that with age comes regular aches and pains. While back pain or neck pain may increase with age, it’s not something that you have to accept it as a part of your life. Regular physical activity, along with regular checkups and visits to the chiropractor can help to reverse the effects of aging and can make you look and feel young and healthy for a very long time.

Don’t let pain it stop you from leading an active life. Call the Davis Clinic of Chiropractic today. Because what’s the point of living in The Villages, Florida, if you can’t enjoy it!
