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 [...]

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. [...]

The Truth About Self-Compassion

2020-08-04T21:37:35-04:00

Have you ever tried telling yourself to do just five minutes on the treadmill? What almost always happens? Once you’re there…you keep going! This is partly psychological; it feels silly to get off after five minutes when you’ve already gone through the trouble of hitting the start button.  But it is also physiological; in those five minutes all of your body’s processes wake up. Your muscles and brain are almost instantly better oxygenated as your breathing and your circulation increases.  And as you persist, your movement becomes easier.  Exercise also stimulates production of BDNF, a crucial brain chemical that reshapes the synapses. In [...]

When You Should Not Use A Chiropractor

2020-07-28T18:16:51-04:00

Quick story: I recently reconnected with a former patient, Marie. We just happened to pass each other on the street and have a brief chat a few months ago.  Marie then came back to the clinic last week and gave me the lowdown on some recent symptoms (hip, side-of-her-leg and knee pain, which she has a history of) and how she hoped for some relief, as walking was becoming less comfortable. So, out of transparency, I did my full re-evaluation (it’s been more than 7 years). What I discovered was plenty of the “usual suspects” of stress & time-induced subluxation.  However, her biggest [...]

The Heart Health Secret Discovered Almost By Accident

2020-02-11T13:17:51-05:00

February is Heart Month. As a chiropractor, I feel a special connection to the cause of heart health.  Let me explain: more than a hundred years ago one of the pioneers of chiropractic, D.D. Palmer had come across a patient with heart troubles that weren’t getting better.  When he examined his spine he noticed a displaced vertebrae pressing against the nerves connected to the heart. And when he adjusted it, the man instantly felt better. This was one of the first cases of a chiropractic adjustment.  From there, the science of chiropractic was developed. In the mid 90’s, Dr.'s Jarmel and [...]
