I Dared Him To Answer This

2021-09-10T17:21:09-04:00

As we (hopefully) turn the corner toward spring, more and more folks will be gearing up to shed those unwanted winter quarantine pounds. So I challenged a personal trainer friend of mine and asked him: “If you had just a few minutes to transform someone’s fitness forever, and you could never speak to that person again, what advice would you give them?” Here’s the 4 gems he answered with: 1. Try not to do too much too soon. Waiting rooms are full of weekend warriors who injured themselves or fizzled out by going hard when their bodies simply weren’t ready. Sometimes [...]

If you find yourself getting even the teensiest bit antsy (over VERY antsy) because you're stuck working at home, here are a few simple ways to shake things up. I’ve taken some tips I heard about from a productivity coach and spiced them up by adding my own chiropractic spin to them.

This Made Me Think Of You

2021-02-17T20:03:26-05:00

Allow me tell you a quick personal story. On Valentine’s Sunday, my son Hayden made a trip to the hospital for a few chin stitches, after a run-in with a pole during tobogganing. Now don’t worry – Hayden is ok, and enjoying the return to school almost as much as his exhausted parents! Aside from a big band-aid altering his jaw opening “comfort”, he was himself again just a few hours later. (Kids bounce back so fast, don’t they?) But when the dust finally settled after our hectic day, my chiropractor’s brain finished connecting a few dots…and it prompted this note. [...]

Headaches? 3 Questions You Must Ask Yourself

2020-12-08T13:30:58-05:00

There’s no two ways about it – headaches suck. I meet a variety of headache sufferers in my practice. For some, when a headache or migraine strikes, life comes to a complete HALT and they run for cover in a dark room. For others, they may notice a dull headache that lasts up to ten days or more, which they manage with over-the-counter pain meds. Neither is to be scoffed at. If you’ve ever struggled with this problem, here are three questions you must ask yourself first: 1. Are You Hydrated Enough? One of the simplest causes of headaches is dehydration. [...]

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 [...]
