  • How did my Back go out just from picking up a Paperclip?
    I get asked all the time how my back just went out when I tried to pick up a paper clip or just getting the laundry out of the dryer. Well, the answer is very simple and also very complicated as well as to how your body let this happen. So here is the long and short answer. You should be able to do all these activities with ease, without difficulty and no possibility of flareups. What has occurred is that you have allowed your body to improperly adapt and compensate by doing the same thing over and over again without ever changing certain mechanics causing poor body dynamics which developed spinal dysfunction. What you've also done is allow muscular weaknesses and compensations to occur in your back muscles. This is caused by not actively stretching, exercising, changing and adapting you're normal sitting and standing postures that you have to do a continual daily basis at home and work. This weakness occurs when your body is not forced to either change, adapt or progressively improve through either an active flexibility, range of motion or resistance exercise program. 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
