Why do injuries happen?

Dr. Jeremiah Jimerson

IT’S NOT JUST A MATTER OF TREATING SYMPTOMS, BUT SOLVING YOUR WHY

Far too many people waste time and money chasing symptoms. Getting adjustments, countless physical therapy hours, stretching and foam rolling, injections and surgeries while never getting true clarity about WHY their pain happened in the first place – this needs to STOP!

While you’ve probably been conscious of your posture your entire life, there’s no worse feeling than catching yourself hunching over in mirrors, pictures, storefronts as well as with friends, family members and loved ones.

We try our hardest to be stand up straight, only to be distracted a moment later causing you to hunch back forward.

One of the biggest fights against our posture has to do with a physiological law that states that soft tissue adapts to stresses that you place on it over time. Meaning, our bodies do what we do most frequently or in even more plain English, we hunch forward during almost all of our activities during the day and over time our bodies begin to stay like that.

Typical posture treatments are trying to remind yourself to stand up straight, posture braces and supports, wearable technology that reminds you to stand up straight, chiropractic adjustments, stretches and exercises that you might have seen on YouTube as well as massage therapy and physical therapy…

Did you know that poor breathing patterns or not using your diaphragm (in your belly) to breathe can result in poor posture?

Or that weak muscles in your eyes can cause you to slump over further when reading or doing computer work or driving or anything that requires your eyes to focus?

Or that tight jaw muscles or poor tongue positioning can make your core muscles weak contributing to poor posture?

Try this. Stand up and reach down and touch your toes. Notice how far you can reach downwards.

Now spend some time rubbing on the tender spots all around and on your jaw muscles. Spend 20-30 seconds on each little tender spot.

Now try to touch your toes and notice how much further you drop down.
Congratulations. You increased your core strength using neurology. Your spine felt even more safe and decided to relax your hamstrings because it felt protected.

Treating symptoms is one thing, finding the root cause of those symptoms SOLVES the problem

The world of pain relief is filled with marketing and massive amounts of myopic thinking. This chiropractor says “a bone is out of place,” that physical therapy office says “just do this 10 pages of exercises” and often the medical approach is to medicate, inject, or cut – sadly, that’s the world that we live in and unlike this website it’s not all black and white.

The fact is, treating symptoms will never result in permanent relief. It’s like duct taping a leaky ceiling. It might look good for a hot minute, but it doesn’t take that long before you wish you hired a better contractor.

After being in the pain and performance world for 20 plus years, my focus today is providing immediate relief, but also being the detective that leaves no stone unturned of showing you how to keep it that way.

Dr. Jeremiah is my go to for my patients when all else fails

Dr. Jimerson is OUTSTANDING! As a clinician myself, I appreciate his direction and encouragement… but mostly the RESULTS!

Priscilla Nugent – Physical Therapist

There’s a massive list of neurological and muscular imbalances that can occur and if you can fix those, you don’t have to work anywhere near as hard at keeping good posture.

Dr. Jimerson begins each and every treatment with a full biomechanical assessment of your posture. The way you lean to one side, how one arch of your foot collapses more than the other, how your head tilts just so and one shoulder is more elevated than the other.

While each of us likely has several thousand imbalances, Dr. Jimerson is mostly focused on trying to figure out your top 2 or 3 imbalances. When you focus on the biggest contributors of poor posture whether it be weak or tight muscles or how your brain sees your body (scientists call this proprioception), if you focus on the top important factors, it will take you 80% of the way to where you want to be in your posture.

All of this happens rapidly and most patients reports that their friends and love ones notice their improvement in posture almost immediately.

Patients report even after a single session with Dr. Jimerson that they feel lighter in their body, stronger, more stable and that it takes minimal effort to stand up straight.

While Dr. Jimerson has been voted best chiropractor in Charleston, he doesn’t necessarily look at things from a chiropractic perspective and thus avoids unnecessary chiropractic adjustments and x-rays. It is this methodology and his ability to look at injuries from an outside the box perspective that Charleston Orthopedic Surgeons, Physical Therapists and other Chiropractors routinely refer complex and unfixable pain cases to him.
