Take Care of Your Spine – Regular Care Improves Your Health

Care of your spine is like care of your teeth, a must. Neglected teeth leads to deterioration, which looks bad, feels bad and is very costly when you finally decide to take care of them. The spine, with its 24 vertebrae, houses your spinal cord, part of your central nervous system. Emanating from the spinal cord between each pair of vertebrae are pairs of spinal nerves that lead to your organs, muscles, skin and every single inch of your insides. These nerves control and monitor every activity in every part of your body. Between each pair of vertebrae is a disc. The discs are made of fibrous ligaments with a soft gelatinous center. The spinal nerves lie next to these discs. If a vertebrae gets moved out of alignment, or if a disc bulges (‘slipped disc’), pressure is put on the spinal nerves, and whatever structures those nerves lead to gets compromised. Chiropractic spinal adjustments, along with spinal muscle release techniques as I perform them, free the spine and align the vertebrae for optimal nervous system control of your body. Furthermore, any kinks, knots, stiffness, sprains or strains of your neck or back left untreated can lead to a progression of deterioration, ultimately leaving you with early debility. You do not want to be one of those people that looks and feels old before their time, stiff, inflexible and unable to live life freely. How does a neglected spine lead to early arthritis and debility? Stiffness and knots create decreased range of motion and, because vertebrae are being rocked out of alignment, pressure is put on the nerves and discs as well. This starves the discs of nourishment because less fluid gets into the spinal joints which, due to lack of blood supply, rely on movement for their lubrication. This leads to disc thinning, bone spur formations and eventual immobility in that area. We’ve all seen seniors who are hunched over, or can’t turn their heads or bend over to tie their shoes. Many people take better care of their cars than their spines. Maintenance is the key! Give your spine regular ‘adjustments’ BEFORE issues arise. This will keep the body, including your immune system, digestion and all bodily functions operating at optimal levels AND slow down spinal aging! Maintenance is how we treat our teeth, our cars and our spines. Regular maintenance for your spine means coming in for a special gentle chiropractic spinal treatment with Dr. Martin Orimenko every four to six weeks. Keep your spine limber and your body functioning at its peak with regularly scheduled spinal adjustments....

Who We Are & Why We’re Here

Posted by on Mar 26, 2010 in Main Line | 0 comments

A couple of weeks ago we opened our doors to the Live Well Holistic Health Center in Ardmore, PA, and we’re very excited to be here on the Main Line, offering a natural approach to health and healing to the greater Philadelphia area. Dr. Martin Orimenko, DC, ND, FIACA is both the director and one of the founders of the Live Well Holistic Health Center, and he’s a Chiropractor, Acupuncturist and Naturopath.  Dr. Martin combines these modalities, plus Nutrition, Ayurveda, and Lifestyle Counseling, Neuro-Emotional Work, and Kinesiologic Analysis to patients in his comprehensive Holistic Health Visits.  We also have a very talented Massage Therapist on site to offer Therapeutic Massages and a Reiki Master to offer Reiki Therapy sessions at Live Well. Dr. Martin has almost 20 years of experience as a healer, and he has treated over 5000 patients at his prior practices in Sausalito, California (where for 7 years he had Sausalito Chiropractic) and in St. Louis, Missouri (where for the 12 years prior he had The Healing Center). We moved back home to the Philadelphia area so we could raise our 2 year old son Alex surrounded by a large and loving family and immersed in the culture and communities in which we each grew up.  We’ve really appreciated being back home, even with this wild snowy winter, in touch with our roots, and the four seasons, once again! And it’s clear that people here on the east coast are looking for holistic natural approaches to common medical issues like digestive problems, allergies, blood sugar imbalances, cholesterol problems, hormonal imbalances, inflammatory conditions, skin problems, environmental sensitivities, chronic fatigue, as well as musculoskeletal problems,  headaches and general pain.  We are happy to be here to support people in the Philadelphia Area with their health and vibrancy, using a natural approach to medicine.  We’ve found that this can almost always more be more efficient and effective, and also less expensive, than our traditional medical system with its costly pharmaceuticals and their long list of side effects. Call us up or stop by if you’re in the neighborhood.  We’d love to show you around the center and talk with you about any health concerns or ideas you may have. Together, we can make things...
