Going through a time of STRESS?
By. Terry Weyman
Stress is part of life, its just the way it is. HOWEVER, when the flood waters get a little high, sometimes we need a little help. Stress comes in many forms. And its effects are so strong that even the stress of others can have an impact on your well-being. The American Psychological Association reports that “only 37 percent of Americans feel they are actually doing an excellent of very good job of managing their stress”. Not only can Stress be emotional, it can also be caused by over training!
What are you doing to help your stress? We all have read about stress relieving techniques, from mediation, positive self talk, breathing and changing your environment. However, what are you doing during the stressful times to just get by until the light at the end of the tunnel appears? Here are some quick tips to help.
Supplements to take:
Supplements are just that. They SUPPLEMENT the diet when more is needed. If you are building a house and its time to put on the roof, do you want a few tiles to show up at a time or do you want truck loads to show up when they are needed? The average American diet is CRAP. We are not getting the nutrients necessary for daily survival most of the time, let alone in times of stress. So, when the body needs more, give it more. The basics are:
- Vitamin C
- Omega #
- Valerian (if sleep is a problem)
- Passion Flower
Treatment of Stenosis- A quick analysis
By Dr. Terry Weyman
I got this quick tip from the American Chiropractic Association and I felt it was worth sharing.
TREATMENT OF STENOSIS
“Spinal stenosis is created by the narrowing of the Spinal Canal. There are three BASIC treatment approaches to spinal stenosis: The conservative medical approach, which often involves bed rest, analgesics, local moist heat and muscle relaxants; The conservative Chiropractic approach, which includes non rotational manipulation to decrease tension of posterior facet joints, exercise, decompression and self-care techniques; and surgery. The source of the stenosis often dictates the treatment.
Ultimately, stenosis is a chronic condition that cannot be “cured”, but it often can be improved and maintained over the long term.”
By working with the fixation of the posterior joints, decompressing the spine and providing proper exercises to strengthen the weakened core WITHOUT adding further stress, can and has been shown to decrease the symptoms dramatically. Thus, increasing the quality of your life.

Mild Hyperbaric Therapy Coming to CSI!
Dr. Terry Weyman
After several successes using the Mild Hyperbaric Chamber to heal various sports injuries, I have made the decision to purchase one. I am constantly amazed at how fast injuries such as fractures, contusions, concussions and ligament/Tendon tears heal with the mild hyperbaric chamber. I have used them personally to recover from my Shoulder and elbow surgeries and now most recently, used it in my treatment protocol for my grade 3 ankle injury. In the past I have joined forces with Doctors, in the Valley, who had a unit to work with head trauma cases (concussions), knee and shoulder injuries as well as recovery from Chronic Fatigue and Ebstein Barr in some of my high level athletes who needed to compete. The results always blew me away. I recently used the Chamber at the FACTORY, thanks to Billy Miller, with again, tremendous results.
With the recent positive results of my ankle injury recovery and speaking to many Professional Sports Physicians, who use these on a daily basis, I have made the purchase and will be getting one in my office by the end of the month.
There are two forms of Hyperbaric Therapy. Mild and Steel Chambers. A mild hyperbaric chamber (up to 1.3 atmospheres) verses a steel chamber which goes (up to 3atmospheres). The steel chambers are used more for Diving accidents and medical emergencies and even snake bites, while the Mild Hyperbaric is one of the most sought after and used therapies for various Neurological conditions such as Autism, Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Traumatic Brain Injury, Cerebral Palsy, Sport Injury, scar reduction, Chronic Fatigue and more.
I am so excited to bring this cutting edge therapy, along with the specific Erchonia Cold Laser protocols used in side it, to the Conejo Valley. The research shows that soft tissue wounds heal up to 60% faster in the chamber. This has been true with my injuries as well as the Athletes I have placed in the chambers in the past. Many of my NFL, MLB and procycling colleagues have been using the Chamber for years to get their athletes back on the field as fast as possible, now that therapy and proven protocols will be at CSI!
