4 Easy Ways To Boost Kids’ Immunity

2020-12-04T17:11:41-05:00

I haven’t done a kids’ health topic for a while. And with most kids being back in school, I thought it timely to mention a few tips on immune system boosting in the younger generation. These tips will not only help protect kids against the present threat but are also great for preventing seasonal sniffles and coughs that would keep them out of school. Alright, enough build up. Here they are: 1. Vitamin D and C Fruits and veggies are kids’ easiest and best sources of the amazing immunity nutrient that is vitamin C. Making sure kids get C from healthy [...]

Why Would A Healthy Athlete Use A Chiropractor?

2020-11-10T18:11:51-05:00

Here’s something to think about. With gym closures, so many people are becoming “road warriors” and turning to biking or running for fitness.  Injuries from these types of activities are on the rise. That said, even healthy, top-tier athletes like Tiger Woods and Tom Brady have turned to chiropractic care to give them an edge. Indeed, A study by Anthony Lauro D.C. and Brian Mouch, D.C. showed how athletic ability can be enhanced by chiropractic care. The study looked at healthy athletes who didn’t have any musculoskeletal injuries. The goal for these athletes wasn’t to diagnose disease, but to pinpoint subluxations that could [...]

Meet The Accustim: A New Tool For “Wow” Adjustments

2020-09-22T13:19:37-04:00

Say hello to my little friend! (I couldn’t resist the reference!) The Accustim is a new adjusting tool I’ve recently added to my toolbox. I’ve already received MANY positive comments on its results and two patients have coined it the “woodpecker”. 😊 What’s it all about? Glad you asked. This simple device uses a series of tiny thrusts to help us chiropractors produce “wow” adjustments and potentially huge improvements in range of motion. And since it feels almost somewhat like a massage, it’s perfect for patients who find traditional adjustments too forceful…it jives with my “gentle” approach…AND it allows me to easily modulate [...]

Why I Chose My Primary Adjusting Technique

2020-06-09T14:26:13-04:00

Here’s a little back story on how I came to do adjustments the Dr. Josh signature way: My preferred method is known as the Thompson Drop-Table Technique. Basically, while the patient is lying face down, the cushions on the table drop slightly when a thrust is applied to the spine.  I find subluxations, weak/stress points, distressed areas, and where to adjust you by checking (and comparing) leg length. I’ve honed this technique for the better part of my career.  More recently though, I’ve reintroduced a few spare techniques and tools when we aren’t achieving the best results – and it may involve a [...]

Headaches: Common But Not Normal

2020-06-02T14:21:29-04:00

With the weather getting warmer (thank you!), migraine sufferers especially might notice an uptick in the frequency of their migraines. But headaches affect almost everyone at some point.  Rare for some, constant for others. Those of you who’ve had tremendous relief and remission from headaches can attest to the suffering you used to have. Let’s take a brief look at a few reasons for this. Tension headaches: They're by far the most common type of headache, and they’re often connected with muscle tension in the neck.  Sedentary living, excess sitting, and more time spent hunched over a computer or phone are all possible [...]

How To Read Your Body’s Pain Signals

2020-01-14T11:55:53-05:00

Pain comes in many forms. Is it local muscular or joint pain?  Or is it NERVE pain?  Having at least a hunch about what kind of pain it is empowers you to know where to turn for help.  Here are a few guidelines to help you “make sense” of what’s happening to your body…especially since MD’s often don’t know or don’t help isolate the source of pain. Muscle Pain Muscle pain typically shows up as a big dull ache or a feeling of tightness, and might even feel 'general' in nature.  Another way to think about this is the pain is [...]

Warren Buffet’s #1 Habit For Success (And Mine)

2019-12-17T15:44:53-05:00

As we cross off the last remaining days on this year’s calendar, I’m already in planning mode for 2020. I like to take time to pause and reflect. And set goals. Do you do something similar? In support of your goals for the New Year, whatever they may be, I thought I’d share this interesting quote from one of the richest men on the planet, Warren Buffet: ==== “The difference between successful people and really successful people is that really successful people say no to almost everything.” ==== The “Oracle of Omaha” has spoken. Present day is less about finding opportunities [...]

Are You Toxic? (The Answer May Surprise You)

2019-12-10T15:36:31-05:00

Cautionary tale today. A “chemical revolution” over the past 50 years has polluted nearly every aspect of our lives. The truth is we still have much to learn about the long term health risks this poses. But research has shown that every single one of us carries synthetic chemicals in our body. And it’s estimated the average person is exposed to 200 chemical toxins a day. Bill Moyer, author of the Moyer report, was tested for chemical toxins in his blood and urine at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. They found 84 different hazardous chemicals, including some that’ve been banned for [...]

Prevent Slips And Falls This Winter

2019-11-19T14:14:35-05:00

In my last blog post I highlighted some of the lovely benefits of chiropractic for seniors. Building on that theme, I’d like to send a big shout out to my patient Sonya who shared with me a resource I didn’t previously know about.  It’s a website that’s crucial for seniors but relevant to everyone, as slips and falls can happen at any age. The website is called Rate My Treads. Check it out here: http://www.ratemytreads.com/ Its stated goal is to help you “test” your winter footwear. (And prevent slips so you stay safe on the streets.) From the website: ==== “Slips [...]

83-Yr-Old Gets Her Groove Back

2019-11-11T13:38:30-05:00

Meet my patient Doreen. We started working together when she was 82, after we met at a retired persons association meeting where I’d given a talk. Like most people her age, she had several health concerns.  But with regular adjustments she soon found herself with an extra spring in her step.  Most notably, the stiff neck she’d suffered with for years had regained almost full range of motion. Watch this brief video to hear Doreen tell the story in her own words: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edQX7zo7frw&feature=youtu.be Here’s what I love about this… Her body, at her age, still has the power to heal!
