Thank You Celebration!

We are grateful for the patients that we’ve seen and the referrals they’ve sent. We are grateful for the positive reviews and even the less than positive feedback. (Yes, that first website was a...

Treatment Expectations

Earlier today I had someone come to do work at my house. I had gotten the name through a referral partner and I already knew that the person was a good cost.

I thought that he basically “met” my expectations and that was it. I was by no means disappointed, he answered all my questions, and I felt he gave me the...

Shoulder Pain Explained

I’ve always been convinced the the shoulder is quite possibly the worst designed joint in the body. Which makes it one of the most interesting to treat!! Lets break down the shoulder and shoulder pain generators today: The bones of the shoulder consist of the humerus, the scapula and the clavicle with the rib cage and neck serving as attachments for ligaments, tendons and muscles. I think the simplest way to look at how the shoulder works is to imagine a golf ball on a tee and then tip it...

Healing Time for an injury

Hello Friend – I’ve been looking into ideas to continue teaching my readers and a friend suggested I use the most commonly asked questions I hear in the office. If you have a question you would like me to answer, please feel free to comment below and I’ll put it on my list! How long will this take? That depends on what is diagnosed, and whether there is one diagnosis or multiple issues. Are you here for simply a spinal check? Or did you have a sudden onset of pain? Do you also...

Core Strength

Core Strength   Core Strength “I need to strengthen my core muscles” – I’ve heard it from about 93% of my patients at some point. Let’s discuss your core muscles. It is a term that I think gets misused frequently or thrown around as some sort of buzz word. But if someone says, “You need to strengthen your core” your response should be, “Which muscle?” If you’ve been into my office, there is a chance that you’ve heard some variation of my...

Fulfilling your Healthy Resolutions

What were your resolutions last year? Do you even remember them? I can tell you that last year I was pretty specific about my resolutions. Enjoy every minute of wedding planning. Become a morning person. I didn’t reach too far, but I chose what I thought to be attainable goals. I succeeded with exactly 50% of my resolutions. I had a GREAT time planning my wedding. The thing about coming a morning person… Not even close. I made a rookie mistake with my resolutions. I chose...

Skeptic

Skeptic I think that being a skeptic is essential when you work in complementary medicine. Not because I believe that a lot of treatments aren’t real, nor do I believe that anyone is trying to lie to us. I also realize that the hard science isn’t always there to back up a product, which is why I need to see a product in action before I jump in. Kinesiotape is a product that has a distinct moment of clarity for me where I went from being a skeptic, to being a believer. While I was in...
