    After a car accident, many people are left shocked, scared, and in the worst cases, physically injured. Accidents happen quickly, and can leave people feeling lost and wondering “what do I do now?” As if the financial burden of a car accident isn’t enough, victims are left questioning how long they will have to receive treatment for their injures, why they are in SO much pain, and when this pain will start to improve. The answer to these questions is not always simple and will vary from person to person. So, to help my patients better understand the reason behind their pain and provide them hope for the future, I will discuss the eight key factors that contribute to the severity of each auto accident.

  • The Most Neglected Exercise...
    There is a neglected exercise that I believe is highly overlooked in the world 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 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

    These are the 7 common myths and truths about chiropractic. Myth #1 Chiropractic isn't safe.

There is certainly a time and place for all of these and I'm not advocating anything against them, however, with chiropractic treatment have a better chance of alleviating your condition without drugs, surgeries or invasive therapies.

  • What Are Whole Food Supplements?
    People always ask me what type of vitamin supplements I should take. There are thousands of different types of vitamins (grocery, pharmacy, health food store and even gas station) and supplements companies. I’ve always said that “your food should be your vitamins” but with the way food has been processed, bleached, overcooked and hyper farmed over the last 50 plus years, it’s difficult to get the proper amount of vitamins and minerals in the foods that you eat from the severely depleted soil.

  • Sleep Debt, a New Epidemic
    Proper sleep is essential when it comes to maintaining proper function of your body, and your overall health and mental well-being are a direct reflection of your daily sleep habits. Just think, we spend roughly 1/3 of our entire lives asleep. Most people are taught that they should get eight hours of restful sleep every night, but for whatever reasons, most of us tend to get a lot less than that. Many of us don't really know what being truly “rested” feels like and live out our lives in a sort of “sleep debt.” While sleep requirements may vary from person to person, most healthy adults need an average of 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night to function at their best. However, according to a national pole, about 40% of Americans get less than seven hours of sleep per sleep. This means that almost HALF of us are not getting enough sleep Read more
  • Row Row Row Yourself for Better Posture
    It's hard to believe that I began my rowing experience over 30 years ago, with an old 2 hydraulic shock type trainer. With that old-school low tech in mind, rowing has come a long way to some of the chain driven flywheels or to the water rower experience with on screen computer metrics. Rowing is the most efficient exercise on land or water that uses every part of the upper and lower body especially the CORE region with every stroke. While majority of my cardiovascular work is done by cycling, CrossFit training and rowing that is 1 to 2 times a week. Rowing incorporates different muscle groups in a balanced controlled movement that is 60% legs and 40% upper body as cycling on a trainer is 95 plus percent legs. Rowing is a full body exercise and burns approximately 2 to 3 times more calories than spinning, running and of course walking. There are few exercises that engage all muscle groups and especially the CORE muscles which are required and fully engaged during the entire movement. This engagement allows for more of a complete upper, middle and lower body exercise which therefore increases metabolic calorie burning abilities, muscle stimulation and muscular balance. Read more
  • Introducing...The Sit-Stand Desk
    In one of my previous articles, I was saying stating that sitting is now the new smoking. I wanted to add a little bit to what I had said earlier and express a few of my thoughts and recommendations. We know that sitting at your desk all day is not good for your back and can put a toll on your hips and back. Over the last year, I have suggested to many of my patients that they either purchase and or ask for a standing desk to aid in their reduction of back pain, computer slouching and neck/upper back bad posture issues. Sitting all day can cause back pain, neck stiffness, headaches and several other things. I have been recommending to my patients that they start using a standing desk. Average prices are between $125 to $250 and according to a 2019 survey for Human Resources, standing desk are the fastest growing benefits trend and approximately 60% of employers provide or subsidize standing desks for their employees.

  • Chiropractic Care for All Ages
    Chiropractic care focuses on restoring and maintaining the health of the body's nervous system. When your nervous system is optimized and functioning properly, it enables the body's powerful healing and restorative systems to thrive. Interference in your nervous system causes pain and dysfunction in the way your body works. This interference is known as subluxation or misalignment. Muscles, bones and joints may become injured and misaligned resulting in nerves being irritated, pinched, or compressed, causing interference in the nervous system. This can lead to a variety of symptoms including pain. Thru chiropractic adjustments, we remove spinal misalignments and restore the function of the nervous system and allow the innate or natural healing mechanisms of the human body to take over. Chiropractic care is useful and effective for people of all ages and stages of life. Read more
