Hanging with the Right Crowd

Hanging with the Right Crowd

You've probably set goals to improve your lifestyle and get your health on track for the New Year. The question is, are you hanging out with the right people to succeed?

There's a saying that goes 'if you want to be happy, hang out with happy people.' The same can be said for being HEALTHY. Ever notice the people who hang out at the Chiropractor's office? They're generally health conscious and excited about Life. Most of them didn't start off that way. At some point they decided to maintain their spines like other happy, healthy Chiropractic clients and eventually became happier and healthier people themselves.

If you're resolved to being more sick, more tired and more medicated, then hang out at your local pharmacy or hospital. On the other hand, if you're committed to renewing your health and improving your Life in 2019, then spend more time with people who can get you there. We'll be hanging out at the Chiropractor's office.

Drive Through Health

Drive Through Health

In today's fast paced world, 'instant' trumps process. Drive through windows and quick fixes are prized in cultures where instant gratification rules supreme. Unfortunately, these principles don't work so well when it comes to your health.

It takes time for a good diet to reflect on your weight... time for exercise to improve the tone and strength to your muscles... and of course, it takes time for your chiropractic adjustments to create the positive restorative effects in your nerve system. Most everything that is good for you takes time to complete.

Don't let the convenience of your local pharmacy, fast food or savings bank drive through lull you into complacency. 'Quick' rarely fixes anything. Health favors the patient who has patience in the process. Make a plan to be more consistent with your Chiropractic care in the New Year.

Yo-Yo Chiropractic

Yo-Yo Chiropractic

You start a diet, lose 15 lbs, then quit… only to gain the weight back, plus five extra pounds.  When it’s time to fit into that bathing suit, you’ll repeat the process all over again.  Yo-yo dieting is transient and event based - not lifestyle based, thus the results are always fleeting.

Yo-Yo adjusting works the same way.  Pain based clients neglect themselves into a health crisis, start some chiropractic care to address it and once they get results, quit... only to gain the problem back, plus a few extra aches down the road.  When the flair ups interfere with their life, they run back to the chiropractor for another round of ‘pain-loss’ care.  But like yo-yo dieting, the results of on again - off again chiropractic are fleeting because a commitment has yet to be made.

It’s obvious, actively engaging in healthy routines (like clearing nerve stress from your spine on a regular basis) is better for your overall wellness than living crisis to crisis.  Not to mention, it’s cheaper on your pocketbook too.  Keeping your spine in optimal shape is not an event - it’s a Lifestyle.

Forget Someone?

Forget Someone?

Chiropractor - “Hey Mary, where are your kids?”   Mary - “I left them home, they don’t have any back pain…”  Chiropractor - “That might be true, but are they subluxated?”

Studies show that stress from the birth process alone is enough to produce pediatric Subluxations – subtle, yet significant vertebral misalignments which alter normal nerve function in children.  And don't forget the stress they experience from falling off bikes, rough housing with siblings or just trying to fit in at school.  Kids are inherently subluxation prone!

If you bring your kids to the dentist for preventative maintenance as soon as they get teeth, it only makes sense you bring them to the Chiropractor as soon as they get a spine.  In other words, don’t leave them at home… get them checked EARLY and REGULARLY for Subluxations.  You’re investing in their health and their future when you do.

Clark Has a Power Problem

Clark Has a Power Problem

Clark Griswold stands with bated breath and extension cord in hand as a childlike giddiness overtakes him.  The family drum roll commences, he makes the anticipated electrical connection and VOILA... nothing happens.

Clark has a power problem.  Although the extension cords are all connected and each individual Christmas light has been inspected with precision, he's still not connected to the source.  It isn't until his wife 'adjusts' the switch in the garage and turns the MAIN Power on that the light show begins.  She'd actually make a good Chiropractor!

If your wiring is connected and your body parts have all been dutifully inspected by the best doctors in the world, you still won't function to your potential if you're not connected 100% to your source... the Life sustaining Power that flows from your Nerve System.  Make sure you and your family stay connected to it with regular Chiropractic care during this bustling holiday season.

Treating the Bark

Treating the Bark

You walk into your Chiropractor's office, hop on a table and point to where it hurts. But the Chiropractor adjusts a totally different part of your spine… not even close to where you feel the pain. Why is that?

There's an old saying that goes when you step on a dog's tail, it barks out the other end.  In Chiropractic, that means where you hurt (the bark) isn't necessarily where the problem is (the tail).  Many times the symptom you feel in one area is due to a remote cause.  For example, someone with sciatica may feel pain down their leg, but the cause of the problem is a Vertebral Subluxation in their spine.

Chiropractors recognize that if you address the cause of the symptom, the body will no longer have a need to produce it. That's why Chiropractors focus on fixing underlying problems and not superficial effects.  Chasing after symptoms is like a dog chasing its own tail – spinning around and around until it gets dizzy, confused and frustrated.  It's much smarter to address the underlying cause from the start.
