  • I have a Vitamin D Deficiency
    Last year I had a blood test thru Athlete Blood Test (ABT) company that showed that I was deficient in Vitamin D. While I was not surprised to some degree, as it was during the winter and that my German/Italian blonde hair and blue eyes, never liked to be in the sun because I always got burned so easily with this type of genetics. With this Blood test, I was able to truly understand the implications of having low or deficient levels of Vitamin D in the body. Some symptoms low levels of Vitamin D include fatigue/tiredness, back pain, depression, bone/hair loss, muscle pain and weak immunity and frequent sickness. Read more
  • How Often Should I Replace My Shoes?
    I see it all the time that well-worn comfy pair of shoes that many of the patients come in with on a regular basis. I ask the patients how old are these shoes? They say years… but as I go into my explanation about comfort vs proper function and it doesn’t matter if you are talking about a running, dress or a casual everyday shoe. The research shows that about every 300 to 400 miles the shoes should be replaced, even though they may not seem to be worn out. Shoes will show small wear patterns in the heel and mid/outsoles that can cause pain, dysfunction and stress on your lower joints (Ankle, Knees and Hips) and spine. Read more

    When I was 19 years old, my biggest goal was to break a world record in powerlifting (Squat).

  • Expect Miracles
    One day as I was walking in the front door of my office, I noticed a small, hand painted stone near the edge of the sidewalk. On the stone was a yellow sun surrounded by a bright blue sky. I looked down at the stone and smiled. Intrigued by this random act of Beauty, I decided to create a stone of my own. Right then I started brainstorming about what image or message I would leave. I decided to leave a stone with one of my favorite chiropractic slogans, “expect miracles,” and here’s why. Read more

  • What is Sciatica?
    "The pain may hit suddenly like a lightning bolt or it may cause a constant nagging ache, deep within your hip and buttock area." This common condition affects more than 3 million people each year in the United States. Chances are, you may never experience anything quite as painful in your entire life. Sciatica sufferers say it's like having an excruciating toothache in the leg.
