Which Drop Did It?

Which Drop Did It?

A titration test analyzes how many drops of chemical it takes to create a specific reaction - usually a change in solution color.  Drop by drop, the reagent is added until an observable change is seen.  And if asked which drop finally made the difference, the correct answer would be they all did.

Chiropractic care works in similar fashion.  Often a patient will exclaim after a visit '...doc, that last adjustment really did it, I felt better right away.'  In reality, it wasn't just the ONE adjustment that did the trick - the past ones contributed, as will the future ones.  The effect is cumulative.

When adjusted regularly, drop by drop, you eventually reap the rewards in improved health, higher function and realized potential.  If you ever wonder which adjustment changed your Life for the better?  The answer is - they all did, and will continue to do so.

Place Your Order

Place Your Order

Getting stuff from Amazon.com is pretty easy... just pick out what you want, put it in your cart and click the order button. There's no need to worry about what goes on 'behind the scenes.' It's all handled by knowledgeable experts who retrieve, pack and ship the items you requested online without your conscious involvement. Your job is to sit back and wait patiently for your items to arrive at your doorstep.

The same applies to healing. The behind the scenes work involved in repairing your body requires no conscious micro-management on your part. You need only hold a clear image of the end result (the order) in your mind and allow Nature to fulfill it. Don't be lulled into aimless hope. No one orders from Amazon and then 'hopes' their packages into existence - they EXPECT them to show up. Expectation is the magic catalyst in every SUCCESSFUL outcome, including healing if that's what you desire.

So is recovery really as simple as dropping your request in a proverbial chiropractic shopping cart and waiting for your shipment to arrive?  If your desired outcome is well defined and your attitude is receptive, it surely can be. The innate, healing expert inside your body is working thanklessly behind scenes to get the job done - don't doubt, your order will get delivered.

IN-Dependence Day

IN-Dependence Day

Here are some recent statistics to consider...

  • The United States consumes 80% of the world’s pain medication while only having 6% of the world’s population.(1)
  • In the United States, deaths from pain medication abuse are outnumbering deaths from traffic accidents in young adults. (2)
  • American dies from a prescription drug overdose every 19 minutes. (2)

Chiropractors believe true freedom comes from IN-Dependence - relying on the Power that made you, to heal you and keep you well. IN-dependent Chiropractic patients know they innately possess what it takes to heal. They trust in the wisdom of their bodies to handle what ails them instead of running to the medicine cabinet for every cough or sniffle. They‘re the 30% who would rather give Mother Nature the chance to do her job, than usurp her role with drug intervention.

Big Pharma won’t stop advertising and pushing their products until we’re 100% dependent on them. This Fourth of July when you’re celebrating our country’s freedom, take a moment to reflect on your body’s freedom as well. Are you truly as IN-dependent as you want to be?

I’d Rather Be Fishing

I’d Rather Be Fishing

There was a time where tackle boxes were used to hold fishing gear. Bobbers, hooks and perhaps your favorite lures all found a home in one of many varying sized, slotted compartments. Now those boxes are used to hold the multitude of drugs so many seniors are prescribed.

According to a recent analysis by the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics, people aged 65-79 receive more than 27 prescriptions for new drugs per year. It doesn't start off that high. One prescription most likely created a side effect which begat the need for another, which begat the need for another, which begat yet another, so on and so for - like a bad, chemical ancestral lineage.  Until one day, only a tackle box can 'tackle' the volume of meds needed every day.

Still, there ARE senior citizens who need little to no prescriptions - they're vibrant, alert, active and full of Life. It makes you wonder what they did during their lifetime to reap such healthy rewards late in life - most likely they spent more time at their favorite fishing hole, than at their favorite doctor's office.

A Bowling Ball on a Stick

A Bowling Ball on a Stick

That's what your head and neck basically are. A 12-14 lbs weight balanced on top of a segmented, 2 inch diameter dowel, with a "Twizzler" consistency spinal cord inside. It's not surprising the prevalence of neck pain, muscle tension and nerve irritation now considering the extreme strain those structures are under when you're bent over a computer screen or cell phone all day.

Every inch your head creeps forward from its neutral, relaxed position adds 10lbs of perceived weight on your neck. For the average person glued to their mobile device that's like adding 42-52 lbs of extra strain to your muscles and supporting ligaments throughout the day. Try it for yourself... hold a bowling ball close to your chest, then extended way out in front of you. Doesn't take long to figure out which position taxes your muscles and joints more - resulting in more pain, more stiffness and more degenerative dis-ease.

The solution - do some 'opposing' good for your neck. Ditching the cell phone is an unrealistic request (no one's going to do that). But you CAN incorporate healthy countermeasures like regular Chiropractic adjustments and home traction to mitigate the stress your neck experiences from spending hours on a mobile device. If you don't, your health could end up in the gutter.

Restoration Care

Restoration Care

Undertaking a restoration project can be a harrowing task.  Depending on how much wear, tear and neglect you're faced with, it could take several months and a lot of money to get your rusted classic back to the way it looked in its glory days.

Getting your spine back in shape can be a big restoration project too.  Instead of re-chroming the bumpers, painting the trim and removing the rust, your Chiropractor will attempt to bring your spinal range of motion back to operating specs, correct any bad vertebral alignment issues and halt the progression of arthritic degeneration with protective care - all in an effort to undo years of neglect and poor maintenance on your part.

Too often, people leave spinal care out of their health regimen - waiting until something 'breaks down' before they give it proper attention.  Unfortunately when it comes to your spine, it's impossible to replace original parts once they've worn.  So please, take care of the ones you have now.
