Pain Diagnosis Causes
Not Just and Inner Ear Problem
Meniere’s Disease is not just an inner ear problem. In 90 percent of the cases, the primary cause is an unbalanced cerebellum. People in their 40s and 50s are more likely to develop Meniere’s Disease, although it has been diagnosed in all ages, including children.
Typical Reasons For Thyroid Imbalace
Thyroid hormones control the most basic aspect of physiology — the basal metabolic rate. Your metabolic rate is very sensitive to minor imbalances and has a direct effect on most organs — including the heart, which beats faster and harder under the influence of increased thyroid hormones.
The thyroid “runs” our metabolism. It’s the “gas pedal” of the body.
Thyroid hormones are T3 and T4. T3 is the most biologically active. Most of T4 is converted to T3 in the body’s peripheral tissues, making T4 basically a precursor for the more active T3.
One of the problems with some thyroid disorders is that you may have trouble converting T4 to T3 in your tissues. The makes for a deficiency of T3, leading to specific symptoms.
Pain Diagnosis Treatment
Dr. Tony’s Personal Experience
I, Dr. Tony Aboudib, have had thyroid disease touch my family. Throughout my chiropractic career, I have focused on the treatment of chronic conditions and how to make people feel better without using medication.
I was told there were three approaches to thyroid disease:
- Lifelong medication
- Thyroid ablation (radioactive iodine)
- Thyroid removal
Those weren’t satisfactory to me, so I made it my mission to learn everything I could about thyroid disease and alternative options.
My post-graduate studies in thyroid treatment with Dr. Datis Kharrazian focused on non-pharmaceutical applications to chronic illnesses, autoimmune disorders and complex neurological disorders.
I use a different approach to diagnosing and treating thyroid disorders.
I will conduct a thorough consultation, review previous lab results and discuss your case. We will discuss the specific lab test that gives us the information needed to uncover the cause of your condition.
Finally, we will talk about dietary, lifestyle and supplemental changes that can make a positive impact on your condition.

Spinal manipulation has been far and away the most effective treatment of tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck.
Manipulation of the upper two cervical vertebrae (neck) along with adjustments to the cervical (neck) and thoracic spine (upper back) are highly successful in relieving headache pain. We can also help with the four main muscles that are trigger points for headache pain (splenius, suboccipitals, sternocleidomastoid and trapezius).
We may also recommend changes in your diet, the addition of B complex vitamins and offer advice on posture, exercises and work behaviors, such as taking breaks every hour to help relieve joint irritation and muscle tension.
General Treatment of Whiplash
- Chiropractic manipulation
- Cold laser, electrical muscle stimulation
- Mobilization and range-of-motion exercises

Pain Reduction Can Be Achieved Through The Use of Electromagnetic Fields
When we experience pain it is a signal from the nervous system that something is not functioning the way it should be in our body. Suffering from chronic pain is a different case. The first step is to identify the source of pain. The nervous system in our body is made up of millions of nerve cells. These nerve cells can sense everything from an itch to a burning pain. The tiny nerve fibers present within our skin, blood vessels and muscles transmit pain. Chronic pain needs to be treated instead of being neglected. Research studies have demonstrated that magnetic fields have... Read More
