Koren Specific Technique

New things are happening at The Reddy Chiropractic Centre!  Dr. Reddy is using a new technique called Koren Specific Technique, or KST.

It’s a new way of healing people that gets wonderful results, helps people heal faster than ever, and corrects long-standing problems that have gone undetected by other doctors. It deals with problems more completely and deeply than anything Reddy Chiropractic Centre has used before.

How is it different?

It’s a gentle, low-force procedure, where adjustments or corrections are often done while the patient is standing or sitting.  KST is excellent for newborns, infants, the elderly and everyone in between.  Children especially like its gentle approach.  KST was developed by world-renowned chiropractor, author, educator and researcher,  Tedd Koren, DC, after years of suffering with his own health issues.  After developing this new procedure, he decided to test it on the most difficult patients in the world — chiropractors who were suffering.   As Dr. Koren traveled throughout the USA and Canada teaching chiropractic seminars, he offered to adjust interested chiropractors with his new technique.  The results amazed everyone and he was continuously asked to teach his new technique.

Dr. Reddy has recently studied with Dr. Koren at KST seminars.  Doctors from all over the world attend Dr. Koren’s seminars to learn this revolutionary new procedure.

Interested in experiencing this breakthrough in healthcare?  Join the others who have experienced life changing differences with Koren Specific Technique.

Call Dr. Reddy to make an appointment and discover why chiropractors call KST, ” The best adjustment of their life.”

Guest Blog: Quiropraxia, Quiropráctica, Que?

Hello!

This blog has been dormant a bit too long, so I decided to include some reflections on chiropractic from abroad.  I am Dr. Reddy’s daughter who is currently serving in the Peace Corps in Paraguay.  Although I am not working in the health sector here I have had time to hear and perceive a bit about Paraguayans views on health, as well as my experience traveling through other countries.

When I’ve gone to study or do internships abroad in the past the first thing I like to do is Google search chiropractors in the cities where I’ll be living.  As I’ve grown up with constant chiropractic care, it’s always hard to imagine going a few months without an adjustment!

I’ve learned of chiropractors (sometimes American chiropractors who have gone to live abroad, other times international citizens-although often times trained in the U.S.) while traveling in Colombia, Ecuador [that my sister had visited], and Brazil.  In Paraguay, one of the least developed countries in South America, I have yet to find or hear of a chiropractor.  Often times in Latin America, where many health practices are carried out in houses or other informal settings, I have described what a chiropractor does and people will say, “Uh, yeah, I think I know someone who could do that for you.”  At which point I become very interested in where they received their chiropractic training and degree.

Alas, this is the difficulty– most of the chiropractor training colleges and universities are concentrated in the United States and Europe, with a few more scattered around Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, Australia, Mexico, Japan and Brazil.

I recently discovered the World Federation of Chiropractic website, and although Paraguay isn’t listed, 85 other countries are listed as having national chiropractic associations, and that is pretty promising!

On your next international vacation, whether out of emergency, necessity or pure curiosity, I hope some of these tools will help you find a chiropractor!

Shoveling Without Injury

The blizzard that swept across Wisconsin brought six feet tall snow drifts– and hours upon hours of shoveling!

This snowfall had a mix of lighter wind-blown snow with a thick layer of wet and heavy snow on the bottom, the kind of snow that can make it extra tough on your back, especially if you find yourself doing all of the shoveling solo!

We found the following tips from the Association of New Jersey Chiropractors on the Basking Ridge Patch website about staying healthy while shoveling:

  • Be prepared. Maintain your exercise program year-round.
  • Listen to weather forecasts so you can rise early and have time to shovel before work; rushing the job can lead to injury.
  • Wear layers of clothing to keep your muscles warm and flexible.
  • Do some stretching before you grab the shovel.
  • For big jobs use a motorized snow blower. If you shovel by hand, use a lightweight,
  • Ergonomically-designed shovel to reduce back strain.
  • When you do shovel, push the snow straight ahead. Don’t try to throw it; walk it to the snowbank. Avoid sudden twisting and turning motions.
  • Bend your knees, to lift when shoveling. Let the muscles of your legs and arms do the work, not your back.
  • Take frequent rest breaks to take the strain off your muscles. A fatigued body asks for injury.
  • Stop if you feel chest pain, or get excessively tired or have shortness of breath. You may require immediate professional care.
  • If you feel sore after shoveling, apply an ice bag to the affected area for 20 minutes, then take it off for a couple of hours. Repeat a couple of times each day over the next day or two.

So remember not to work yourself too hard and read the whole article by Linda Sadlouskos here!

What is Chiropractic?

An interview with Michael Reddy, D.C.
Q: What is Chiropractic?
A: Chiropractic is a natural healing art that works with the nervous system and aligning the spine so that the body can function at it’s very best. Chiropractic looks at the cause of disease, rather then just treating the symptoms.

Q: What made you decide to become a chiropractor?
A: I was motivated by the chiropractor that I went to as a child, he helped me with earaches that had caused me a lot of pain for a number of years that the medical field didn’t seem to be able to help back in the late 50s and early 60s.  After he helped me with my ear problems– and I had been a sickly child—appendicitis, bloody noses, etc., all of that got better after 3 adjustments. I would see him every 6 weeks for wellness care.  I was a lot healthier after that, and whenever I had issues chiropractic care seemed to help it the most. I would ask my chiropractor all of my questions about health in general and he always seemed to have answers, which really intrigued me.  I decided to go to Chiropractic school to explore more about natural health.

Q: When did you first go to a chiropractor?  Is there ever an age when it’s too late or too early to start visiting a chiropractor?
A: I first went when I was seven years old, and no, there is never an age that is too late to start visiting a chiropractor!  I have adjusted babies shortly after their birth, and I have also adjusted patients who were just beginning chiropractic care when they were in their 90s.

Q: What is the best thing about chiropractic?
A: Wellness! Chiropractic is a way to improve and maintain your health on a regular basis, rather than just reacting to a fall down the stairs, physical trauma, etc.  Chiropractic is a way to keep your health in mind at all times.  Many patients have remarked on experiencing fewer colds, sleeping better at night, and feeling more energetic, as a few examples of the benefits of regular chiropractic and wellness care.
