  • 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. My Grandma Hais received Chiropractic adjustments until she was eighty-two years old. Just as everyone in your family should receive adjustments, you should also bring in your grandparents. With medication use on the rise with the elderly, it is especially important that these people receive adjustments. According to Medscape 2015, the average grandma and grandpa fills an average of 14 medication prescriptions a year. Read more

  • 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). A very regular complaints is when i woke up I had a pinch/catch in my neck or I woke up with a bad headache. 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. As we took Ohio State Runner-up in Football in 1984, I truly believe that taking ballet for two straight years improved our performance and prevented many muscular/joint injuries in myself and my teammates.

  • 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? Very few people actually understand the destruction that is taking place, not only in their lives, but also to their body. Read more
  • 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. Raw honey has been used for thousands of years even dating back to Egypt and was used by many people and cultures in the world. Hippocrates wrote the value medically of honey. 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

  • I don't need to work out, I have a physical job, work in the yard and walk every day... isn't that enough?
    I hear this all the time... I don't need to work out, I have a physical job, working in the yard and walk every day isn't that enough?. Actually, it's not and being physically active outside or in your job is good but it doesn't work the necessary muscles that keep the body in proper alignment, allow for proper posture, muscular strength and general cardio health especially with long-term gravity and continued technology which is all part of the real world today.

  • Sitting Is The New Smoking
    I was reading an article several weeks ago about How sitting is the new Smoking. While I know we all have bad habits (I think that I only have one which is 2.5 cups of coffee a day and my wife says I have a lot more), this has become a very unhealthy habit and majority of our society is in such a fast-paced technology, sit all day and computer world.

    This picture sounds all too familiar: Mom is upstairs because she has a migraine headache. Her door is closed, the lights are off and we have to be “really quiet.” Hopefully the shot (Immetrex) worked and she’ll be “all better” in the morning. I also here people say, “I just get a couple of ‘normal’ headaches a week.” Read more

There has been many times that I have been injured in my life (Auto accident, slipping on ice and Sports injuries), some injuries have been worse than others, but I have always relied on my chiropractor to get me back to pre-injury status Read more
