  • Your Weak Link
    The Weak Link I believe is in your neck. This area is the most neglected area and overlooked and not exercised in society today. While it is estimated that over 80% of the population have back pain at one point in their lives and this most common complaint in my chiropractic office. We all focus on CORE and back exercises which is essential to help with low back strength and stability because we sit most of the day. But according to both Spine and Pain Journals, neck pain has an annual prevalence rate exceeding 30% among adults in the United States. Nearly 50% of individuals will continue to experience some degree of neck pain or frequent flareups of pain also. Among adults 20 to 70% will experience neck pain that interferes with their activities of daily living. Statistically, neck pain is consistently ranked in the top five disabling disorders in the United States Read more
  • I'm Too Old to Get Adjusted
    One of my patients came to the office with her mother who was sitting in the chair. She started to ask me a series of questions on chiropractic care. After I answered them, I asked her, well why don't you get adjusted? She replied to me, I'm just too old for that at this stage of my life. I said you're never too old or you're never too young for that matter to get a chiropractic adjustment. Even at the golden years of 80, you can still get a benefit from specific chiropractic care. She asked what benefit would that be? Read more
  • What to do after a Auto Accident?
    First access the situation and check yourself for injuries. If you're injured, call 911 or ask someone else to do so and wait for the appropriate emergency personnel. If a minor auto accident you can exchange information, document the accident and notify the insured. Many times after accidents the adrenaline is flowing and you may not feel much, but later that day or night the muscle soreness and injury may begin to set in... This is where whiplash injuries, neck/back pain, headaches and misalignments in the spine may start to occur within several hours to days of an injury. A chiropractic consultation and examination as soon as possible after an auto accident will help ease your pain, start to recovery process and can help prevent long term complications from the injuries caused by the accident.

  • I Can't Adjust Myself
    People often say.... you're lucky you're a chiropractor, you know you can adjust yourself. Well, the truth of the matter is that I cannot adjust my own spine and even after 30 years of being in practice and over 52 years of being under chiropractic care, I still will not, and cannot adjust my own spine. Even chiropractors have to get a spinal adjustment from a chiropractor. Read more
  • Dr. Joe, I Don't Need a X-ray...
    I don't need an X-Ray. That is something that I actually hear on a regular basis. "I haven't had any trauma recently and I don't think anything out of the ordinary that I would need an x-ray, so just adjust me... can you just do that?". My answer to that is quite simple. I do not know all the stress, traumas and injuries that you've had all of your life and it is important that I do this X-ray. A structural x-ray is needed to see exactly how your body has handled all that it's been through in your life. My kids believed for years that I had x-ray vision and I actually don't, I do take Spinal x-rays on my patients 16-17 years of age and older or younger with a significant injury or trauma. Read more

  • Headaches are common but not Normal
    Society mistakenly believes that just the fact that many people have headaches makes them normal. Many people have that occasional headache but the frequency of how many people have them regularly may surprise you. At least one time per month about 15% of the population experience a headache, but there are some estimates and say that there are 5% or more have a headache every single day. This type of headache can be that only constant, but also debilitating at times. And headaches are one of the most common causes of disability with Americans. They are one of the top reasons for visiting the doctor and more than 250 million days are lost from work because of this disabling headache that cost over $25 billion per year. Headaches affect the entire population, but women are twice as likely to get them as men. Read more
  • Three types of Stress
    Every day we deal with multiple levels of stress. I do think post COVID, there's a lot more stress than we ever had before. Current research suggests that between 75 and 90% of all doctor visits today are related to stress related illnesses. Elevated stress levels have been linked to many common health problems today which include asthma, diabetes, heart disease and obesity heart disease to name a few. So where does all this stress come from? There are three different types of stress and each one affects our body in a different way. Read more
  • So what is Colic?
    Colic is defined as the inability to comfort a crying young child or baby that exhibits periodic fussiness that can last up to hours or even days. This colic is characterized by a loud piercing cry, tightened or tensed stomach muscles, flexed legs and clenched fingers with the inability to try to calm down. In general it starts about three weeks of age and can last up to three months but even as long as six months. Colic affects approximately 10- 20% of newborns. While the research reports there is no one specific cause and with that in mind, makes it very difficult to treat a colicky baby. Other suggestions include that while you're breast-feeding, you sure don't want to consume foods that give you gas or indigestion like broccoli, cauliflower, garlic, onions and even spicy foods. it may be even as simple as an food allergy to the type of baby formula that you're feeding your newborn.

  • Can Posture effect Your Heart rate and Breathing?
    There's not a day that I don't review and discuss proper posture with my patients. But a lot of times they don't know the long-term effects on their health. Posture affects your heart rate and how often you breathe. Poor posture can not only cause a headache, neck pain, pain between shoulders and lower back pain and these issues are not that big of a surprise. But, I believe there's an even deeper story when it comes to posture and how it affects the body. Read more
  • Am I still a Vegetarian if I eat Crickets?
    As I would visit the local Pet Supplies Store Plus and see customers walk out with bags of crickets, I would never think that I would be one day eating them myself. While it is something I wouldn't think of back then, truth the matter is that we have been consuming crickets for hundreds of years and approximately 80% of the population in the world already consume insects regularly (our Western culture has not seen the benefits of these little insects).

  • Get a Grip...Literally
    I remember as a young man, my dad telling the importance of having a strong but firm handshake and I've continued that through my entire career. With that idea in mind, I never truly knew the value and importance of a good grip not only as a young man, but as we age and get into the golden years. The importance of having a good grip for holding on and lifting things, but for simple and basic activities like opening a jar, tearing open a bag of chips or maybe holding onto a bag of mulch as you carry from the car to the flower bed. These abilities may seem nominal basic activities do you show the importance of having a strong grip at a young and older age. I was reading an article from the Journal of the American Medical Association (1999), that stated that in an older person, decreased muscle strength predisposes a person to functional limitations in activities of daily living and can cause disability. We all know that a simple minimum level of strength is needed to perform a basic task. When your strength is much higher than the minimum level, you've got a little bit more in your strength tank to do what is necessary. This reserve capacity as they call it, serves as a safety margin that presents and prevents functional limitations from developing like deconditioning, possibility for an injury or just not being able to do the activity.
