Important COVID-19 Coronavirus Information!

Due to chiropractic doctors being designated as "life sustaining" by Governor Wolf, Synchrony ChiroCare will remain open.

Synchrony ChiroCare is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all of our patients. We understand that millions of Americans seek care for recovering from an injury or chronic pain, and chiropractic is essential to their recovery.

We want to adjust every patient to help with their health goals. However, those patients who are in wellness or maintenance care with no musculoskeletal complaints are considered elective by the state government, and your appointment will need cancelled at this time. We will only be allowing a minimal number of patients in the office at a time. Please stay in your vehicles until directed to come into the office so that the necessary sanitizing procedures can be implemented.

We also need you to help us. An infected person does not belong in our office at this time. Please use common sense. If you, or someone in your household have a fever, or symptoms such as body aches, cough, or shortness of breath, etc. please call us to reschedule your appointment to a later date.

Finally, we at Synchrony ChiroCare will continue to monitor the situation and take any additional necessary precautions.

Stay Safe and Take Care of Each Other,
Dr. Mike Bennese and the Synchrony ChiroCare team

Aspartame and Glutamate: Chronic Pain

synchrony chirocare office blog aspartame fda

"Removing Aspartame and Glutamate from the Diet for 4 Months Can Eliminate Chronic Pain Symptoms."
(Annals of Pharmacology)

I contend that most chronic pain patterns stem from an underlying structural and/or postural problem. Therefore, that particular structural problem requires a structural solution.....a solution we handle in our office with a highly technical skill.

However, even with wonderful structural and posture rebuilding, lingering pain may persist.

That pain may be due to the repetitive intake of food and drink which contain the chemicals known as Aspartame and/or Glutamate. Aspartame and Glutamate are two nasty chemicals that are found in foods, drinks, and/or chewing gum. Aspartame is an artificial sweetener. Glutamate is a food flavor enhancer. Food and Drink manufacturers add these substances to sweeten foods/drinks as well as stimulate your brain to "like" a food better (therefore increasing your chances of eating more and more and more).

If you have a chronic pain pattern (and even if you do not), I suggest beginning to read the nutrition label of the foods, drinks, and chewing gums while you are at the grocery store. Avoid the products which contain the words aspartame and/or glutamate.
