    Let’s begin with a question for everyone reading this; what do you think is the most important organ in the human body? Many people would probably think it’s the heart, however, it’s the brain!

  • Should You Get Adjusted Even After the Pain is Gone?
    Should I be seeing a chiropractor for frequent adjustments even if I’m no longer in pain?

  • 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. You don't have to suffer needlessly from sciatic pain and you shouldn't depend on medication to get the relief you're looking for. Medication only masks or covers up the symptoms; they can't correct your structural problem. Read more

  • Adding Years to Your Life and Life to Your Years
    I have always said that you should begin regular chiropractic adjustments at birth and continue throughout your entire life.

  • I Didn't Know Chiropractic Could Help with That...
    it's my fault and I take full responsibility that I don't spend a little bit more time on teaching and educating to understand the importance of the nervous system and not just the pop or crack. One of the biggest topics in conversation at the office is... I didn't know that Chiropractic could help with that. Well the body is comprised of 100 Billion Nerve cells, 900,000 miles of sensation pathways and 24 movable vertebrae. Of these nerve pathways only 10% of them control pain while 90% controls glands, organs, tissues and functions of the body. Read more
  • Pillow Anyone?
    One of the most common questions that I am asked is what type of pillow i should use? This depend on which position that you sleep at night, back side or belly (which is not recommended).

I do feel that this could be caused from a improper pillow, poor sleeping habits and high use of technology (computer and texting). While there are hundreds of pillow on the market the specific should be comfortable and supportive at the same time. Read more

  • Dr. Stretch Joe ArmStrong
    As a high school athlete in the mid-1980s, we as a Football team at Archbishop McNicholas high school took ballet several times a week injuries (Our Instructor was Oleg Sabline from the Cincinnati Ballet Company). We had heard about big Moeller High in Cincinnati and that they took ballet in order to improve their flexibility and reduce.

  • All Stressed Out?
    Stress is the rate of wear and tear on the body and your bodies ability to deal with it as a result of anxiety, worry or exhaustion from a difficult or challenging situation. If the source of the stress isn't found and corrected, it may irritate or damage a person's nervous system, which leads to a wide variety of health problems. How many people actually understand the origins of stress? And, how many actually understand its influence on their daily lives?

  • Benefits of Local Honey
    I remember many years ago, taking the bee pollen to increase my energy. As I live in the sinus capital of the world, Cincinnati I always heard that consuming honey raw honey, would reduce the amount of allergies that you have living in this region.

The big difference between that used today and raw honey, raw honey is unfiltered heat-treated or processed and can be used both internally and topically. Read more
