In 1934, William Jason Mixter, MD and Joseph S Barr, MD, published a study in the New England Journal of Medicine (1) establishing that the rupture of the intervertebral disc could result in pressure on the related nerves, causing back and leg pain. In this study, Drs. Mixter and Barr also suggested that the lumbar …

Car seats have made many advancements over the years with newer models having integrated side impact airbags. While side impact bags are important for side impacts, the most unprotected direction to protect from is the rear-ender. The mainstay of protection for the rear impact is the headrest. But if not positioned properly, the headrest will …

More Exercise During Pregnancy May Mean Less Labor. 
Pregnant women who engaged in 55 to 60 minutes of moderate physical activity three times a week experienced a notable reduction in the length of time they spent in the first stage of labor compared with women who did not engage in exercise during pregnancy. However, the researchers noted that there was no difference in the length of either the second or third stage of labor between the two groups.

Chiropractic: Spinal Manipulation Reduces Oxidative Stress in Cells! 

Twenty-three chronic neck or back pain patients received spinal manipulation twice a week for five weeks. Pre- and post-treatment blood tests showed an increase in the antioxidant enzymes superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione peroxidase (GPx). SOD and GPx have been observed to decrease oxidative stress in cells. Oxidative stress is associated with reduced telomere length, a biomarker of biological aging.

Low back pain (LBP) affects most of us at some point in life, and usually its cause is mechanical. We typically do not think about low back pain resulting from a virus or bacteria, though we might be quick to recall times when LBP occurred suspiciously close to an infection such as a flu or …

Back surgery is quite common in the US with hundreds of thousands of operations each year. Sometimes these are laminectomies and diskectomies, and other times the spine is fused together so certain joints no longer move, a critical spinal function. The conservative medical approach/thinking is rest, medications, exercise, and physical therapy. If these fail, then …

I was experiencing some lower back pain and contacted Carolina ChiroCare to see if they could take a look at it and help give me some relief. I play water polo and got kicked in the back which threw things out of whack. Dr. Gerdes was very nice and helpful explaining what the issue was and how it can happen. He adjusted me and gave me a muscle stim which did provide some immediate relief. After one day I already felt a noticeable difference. I went back two days later for a follow up and got another adjustment and I have no more pain at all! I will certainly go back to see Dr Gerdes and his team as they were very helpful and informative to my issues as well as being conveniently located near my house. I highly recommend this practice.

I started seeing Dr. Gerdes about 3 years ago when I re-injured my lower back. Dr. Gerdes has great 'bed side' manor and went above and beyond to help heal me. He has worked with me to strengthen my lower back and core to prevent further issues. My husband continuously complained of migraines, neck stiffness, and shoulder pain; so one day I bought him a message and consultation with Dr. Gerdes. Dr. Gerdes completely changed my husbands mind about chiropractors! Not only did he refer him to a specialist for his shoulder pain, but his headaches stopped almost immediately. I no longer hear him complain about headaches and neck pain; his new statement is, "Man, I need to see Dr. Jeff." The office staff is pleasant and accommodating.

I've had the pleasure of being treated by Dr. Gerdes after my car accident in Feb 2011. I had never been to a chiropractor and after just a few treatments I noticed extreme improvement! The staff is exceptionally friendly and very helpful. I recommend Dr. Gerdes and his services to anyone. Not only does my back and neck feel 100% better but they are fast and efficient as well.

Dr Gerdes is amazing!! I was having Alot of knee, shoulder and back issues from working out and playing sports. He helped me resolve all these issues and actually came to my gym one day and showed me how to lift and stretch without getting hurt. He tries to heal u in the least amount of visits. Very friend and jolly chap always trying to help! He also has very good relations with other doctors like triangle orthopedic. Highly recommend!!

I bought a Groupon deal. I had to wait 40 minutes for my turn. The massage therapist (who is NOT a doctor) was VERY RUDE!

I have had 2 low back surgeries in the last 2 years and recently had a recurrence. Dr. Gerdes helped me in 1 sessioand I had been laid up for 5 days prior to my appointment! He also did not push me to setup a long term pay plan, instead allowed me to decide on another appt.which was not needed!
