  • Why Didn’t My Pain Go Away After My First Adjustment?
    One of the most frequently asked questions new chiropractic patients ask is “will I feel better right away?” The answer is solely based on the individual, length you had problem and the nature of their spinal issues. Many patients report feeling better right after an adjustment. Many more report feeling relaxed and flexible or “loose” after an adjustment. Sometimes people do not feel any different after their first appointment, which is completely normal. This does not mean the adjustment did not work or that nothing has changed. The normal nerve flow and neurons in the brain are newly restored/connected in your body and it can sometimes take a few days or weeks before you notice a difference or relief in the beginning of treatment.

  • What I've learned from being a Vegetarian after 36 yrs
    I just surpassed my 36 years of vegetarianism. There are many things that I look back at I would recommend to any young or older person who is considering being a vegetarian. Over the years, I have tried about every type of vegetarian lifestyle which included a vegan which is no animal products, Ovo Lacto vegetarian consuming eggs and cheese and now the most recent four years is being a pescatarian, which consumes fish. While they all had a specific place in my vegetarian lifestyle, I was able to learn several key aspects from all of them. So here you go… Read more
  • Can You Get a Concussion Without Hitting Your Head?
    The short answer to this question is yes, you can get a concussion without hitting your head. A concussion is a traumatic brain injury (TBI). A concussion occurs when your brain moves inside of your head and collides with the interior wall of your skull. A concussion is caused by a blow, bump or jolt that causes the brain to deform or shake inside your skull resulting in changes in the chemistry of the brain, and it could damage brain cells and impair brain function.

  • Adjustment vs Manipulation: What is the difference?
    One question I have been asked before is “What is the difference between an adjustment and manipulation of the spine?”. In this article we will discuss the many factors that set an adjustment aside from a manipulation. There is a myth that “Chiropractic is manipulation, and manipulation is chiropractic”, but that is not true. Read more
  • Chiropractic Care for Kids and Why Routine Adjustments are Important
    I am constantly getting asked “why are so many parents taking their children to see a certified pediatric chiropractor?”. I tell them that the answer is quite simple, children have spines and a nervous system just the same as adults do. We want to make sure they are taking good care of it especially during the developmental years. Read more
  • So how is it that my Arm Pain and Numbness in my Hands is coming from my Neck?
    So how is it that my arm pain and numbness in my hands is coming from my neck? So the answer to that is quite simple, while there can be other reasons that may be more serious causing your arm pain. Typically what I find after a examination, consultation and x-rays that many times it is originating from the neck region. There is a series of nerves that come out of your neck called the brachial plexus, they form a network of nerves that innervate the shoulder, arm, forearm and hands. Read more
  • How long should I wait after a recent fall or maybe an auto accident to be examined?
    A question that I get asked is how long should I wait after a recent fall or maybe an auto accident to be examined?. We’ll, that answer is quite simple and I have always said that the longer you wait to address or fix something the harder it will be to correct. Let say you were recently involved in an auto accident, this accident didn't seem like much, but you were a little sore for a couple days and then maybe after several weeks your neck became a little stiff and restricted that was the beginning of some of the long-term effects of having some thing not addressed immediately after it happened. You're driving down the road and you hit a pothole going 55 miles an hour. You do have a couple choices, you can continue to drive thousands of miles with your being out of alignment or you can stop by a auto mechanic and have your tires realign so it doesn't cause long-term damage or wear and tear on your tire.

  • Can I be Adjusted after Spinal Surgery?
    Over the last 30 years in chiropractic practice, there are several times where I have made the referral decision where the chiropractic was not working as well as I wanted for the patient. This was because of some severe disc herniation/protrusion, pinched nerve or maybe spinal stenosis. This referral typically required maybe a steroid injection initially or as a Last Resort spinal surgery. As the sometimes does happen with a small percentage, chiropractic did not work as well as I had wanted it surgical spinal procedures were required. Read more
  • How can my Foot Numbness and Leg pain be Coming from my Lower Back?
    It may seem a little crazy that that dull, nagging leg and foot numbness is coming from your lower back. But if you have had pain in your leg or numbness in your foot or even a pinched nerve in your lower back this may be the true cause of your issue. By definition, pain or numbness that travels along a spinal nerve is called radicular pain, it's one of the most common types of pain that it occurs as a result of a spinal nerve compression, misaligned vertebrae or inflammation.

  • The Vagus nerve and how important is it to my overall Health?
    The Vauas nerve is a very hot topic with a lot of research especially as it correlates to high levels of stress and chronic illness. The Vagas nerve is one of 12 cranial nerves that exit around or near the upper neck or cervical region. As a chiropractor we have known the importance of this nerve and not only maintaining health, allowing the body to deal with increased levels of stress and overall relaxation. Read more
  • Why don't my Adjustments hold or Last Longer?
    Well, this answer can be quite simple and complex at the same time. Always remember, that a chiropractic judgment is not a permanent fix to a misalignment of the spine. We can get subluxations or misalignments every day and this depends on physical, emotional, mental and even Technological stress is that we placed on our body every day. Read more
  • BCAA or EAA... Which Ones Should I Take?
    When I was in undergraduate school at Morehead State University taking nutrition classes, I learned that amino acids are the building blocks of proteins.

  • What is HRV?
    There are some days where I do feel occasionally tired but most of my days I'm fully charged. With that understanding. having this ability to know when to push to the next level or just coast to an easy workout is extremely important as an athlete, father or physician. I feel the heart rate variability rate (HRV) is an ideal noninvasive tool to test your progress, recovery or training intensity. Read more
  • Pass the Salt Grandma
    As I look back at my childhood and young adult life, I vividly recall of my Grandma Hais. She was an athletically built swimmer who continued to swim every day even into her early eighties. She had this preference to putting salt on just about everything she ate excluding breakfast cereal. I recall my family trying to take the saltshaker away from her, but with limited avail. What intrigued me is that even with salting her food with almost every bite, her BMI was excellent and blood pressure was always low. I guess the long living genes in my German and Italian heritage continued thru me as I have many of the same habits as Grandma. I have managed a very healthy lifestyle of mostly fruits, vegetable, moderate level of exercise with minimal bad habits that I admit (my wife says I have more than just 2.5 cups of coffee a day.
