  • It was only a Minor fender bender, how can my neck possibly hurt so bad?
    According to the National Safety Council (NSA), approximately 12 million car accidents occur annually involving 20 million cars. The Mayo Clinic reported 90 percent of injuries effecting the Cervical spine. Rear end collisions cause more Cervical injury as compared to front or side collisions and Studies show that women are 5 times more likely to be injured than men. 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.

  • Mom's Headache
    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
  • Once You Go...You Always Have To Go
    Once You Go...You Always have to Go This is one of the many roadblocks and complaints that I hear when I talk to people about chiropractors. But I approach it in several different ways. I tell them that I have been going to a chiropractor for over 47 years. 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
  • I Don't Need Dr. Joe, I Pop and Crack My Own Neck
    This is what I hear all to often in my office. It has become a very popular habit that teenagers and adults do. I haven’t figured out why, it seems as though it is a “cool thing” to do or maybe “just to save money”. Lets look at the serious long-term effects of doing this on a daily basis. Read more
  • Ethan Montgomery Had a Great Fall
    I realize every day the importance of having my child checked and adjusted after a spinal injury. This impact to Ethan’s forehead was at a full run into a wall. It split open his head and required a visit to the ER. Fortunately, nothing was broken and the Doctor glued his skin back together. That day, I checked Ethan for a subluxation. His leg length was almost 1 inch off. Read more
  • Ice Ice Baby
    One of the biggest questions I get asked is… whether you should ice or heat when experiencing pain or stiffness. I always, use the rule that simplifies this and that is when you have pain that on a scale of 1 to 10 that is more than 3, you should ice anything less than that you can use heat. Read more
  • Concussion, Sports and Traumatic Brain Injuries
    ​Each year in the United States, there are an estimated 1.6 to 3.8 million sports-related brain injuries (Journal Head Trauma Rehab) of which 136,000 of which occur in young athletes in the high school sports (Journal Athletic Trainer).

  • Posture is the Window to your Health
    Mirror, mirror on the wall…who has the best posture of them all? Through an old fairy tale that I read to my son, I’ve tried to bring together what we may not notice in the mirror and a better health experience. Every day when we look at ourselves in the mirror, we look at our posture. Our posture, whether good or bad, is the window to our health. As part of my daily life, I enjoy looking at people’s posture. Depending on his/her posture, I am enlightened to the health of the patient. Read more
