Wellness Care Versus Short-Term Relief

2024-05-08T13:10:12-04:00

When you’re in pain, unable to work well or enjoy your life, nothing else matters but getting well.

I enjoy offering hope and aid to patients with acute issues, marveling with you at what the body is capable of healing when the nervous system is clear.   You may wonder why I offer a wellness approach to care rather than a quick, get-out-of-pain plan.  I have great respect for how intricate and complex the brain, spine, and peripheral nerves are, working [...]

Nurturing Children’s Well-Being: The Role of Pediatric Chiropractic Care

2024-01-04T10:58:36-05:00

Have you considered chiropractic care for your child? You may think, “My child seems fine. Why would they need it?”   Pediatric chiropractic care can significantly benefit a child's health, development, and overall quality of life. While children may not experience the accumulated stress of adulthood, childhood is a crucial period for neurological development. And let's face it: children are prone to getting hurt as they climb, run, and hurl themselves from all available surfaces!  Understanding Pediatric Chiropractic Adjustments Children’s bodies are usually more flexible than adults, and they often can be adjusted easily, experiencing minimal pressure without twisting, cracking, or popping.

2023-11-10T20:01:06-05:00

“Chiropractic won’t work for me.” “I got adjusted, and it didn’t do any good.” Our mindsets play a big role in our health.  We may come to a doctor, or even a gym or nutritionist with certain expectations. You may anticipate certain results if you’ve been referred or have heard great things about a particular field, such as chiropractic.  Or maybe your mindset is rooted in desperation and exhaustion.

Imagine you’re carrying some boxes down the stairs when you trip and fall on the last step. After picking yourself back up, you notice that your right ankle hurts, you look down and see that it’s completely swollen and red. You hobble to the freezer and grab an ice pack then sit down on the couch to rest.  The ice feels good against your injured ankle but it still takes several days for the pain and swelling to go away. After a week or two, you’re able to use your ankle like normal. This is the process of inflammation reacting to [...]
