Dr. Michael Gorgas, D.C.
There are many reasons the patients put their trust into San Diego Thyroid Institute at the center for Back Pain, Neck Pain and Headache Relief Center, and choose our unique approach to naturally managing Thyroid symptoms such as weight gain, brain fog, fatigue, sluggishness, dry skin, insomnia.
- We know that successfully managing Thyroid disorders takes more than just managing your TSH with Thyroid replacement hormones.
- We focus on the immune system, the most common mechanism for Thyroid disorders in the United States.
- We take a whole-person approach that factors in hormone imbalance, immune imbalance, adrenal and blood sugar imbalance, and digestive imbalance when formulating our approach for a patient.
- We use functional lab testing to guide and direct our treatment. This means that your treatment protocol is based off the unique imbalances in YOUR body, not just what the ‘typical’ Thyroid patient has.
- Most importantly we care for and listen to our patients. We take a partnership approach to health care and want you to play an integral role in your treatment.
Spinal Decompression can offer a healing relief from back pain. You may want to know whether spinal decompression is the right treatment for you. If your back pain is due to sciatica, herniated disc, bulging disc, slipped disc, pinched nerve, arthritis, lumbar disorders, or chronic back pain; the answer is yes.
Take Care of Your Spine
- Make sure you have a firm mattress that keeps the spine aligned and supports the spine's natural curve. The best sleeping positions are on your back or side.
- When standing for extended periods, rest one foot on a small stool to maintain spinal curvature and relieve pressure. Low-heeled shoes may help by maintaining spinal curves.
- Use chairs that promote good posture and support your back. Placing a lumbar support in the lower portion of your back may help support your spine's natural curve. Readjust the seat of your car so that your knees are level with your hips.
- When lifting, keep your spine straight while using your legs to do most of the work. Hold the objects being lifted close to your body.
