Chiropractic Medicine 08/08/2019

It’s pretty obvious, but it’s still nice to see a study from s major educational institution conforming what we’ve been saying for decades.

Chiropractic Medicine Chiropractic medicine is based on the relationship between the alignment of the spine and the function of the body and the belief that the body can heal itself.

Horns are growing on young people’s skulls. Phone use is to blame, research suggests. 06/21/2019

This is a crazy headline but when you stop and think about it, it makes total sense. Your bones and even your soft tissue get reinforced along their lines of stress. It’s designed to make us more durable human beings. But when that stress comes from your head CONSTANTLY being in flexion from looking down at your get this. What a time to be alive!

Horns are growing on young people’s skulls. Phone use is to blame, research suggests. The growth of bone spurs at the back of the skulls of young people may be a result of an adaptation to the use of handheld devices.

We are closed today in observance of Memorial Day.

I see a lot of athletes in my practice, and that includes powerlifters. I had been invited to join a group of them for a while and (after some persistence by some of them) I finally joined in the fun this afternoon. 415 # squats with EccO Arms, 408 # “wagon wheel” deadlifts and a crazy bench press complex to finish it off. It was loads of fun and it was good to see that I can still move some weight when I need to!


I waited a bit to post this because I wanted to get my words right.
Today, I blocked off my entire morning patient schedule to go observe several different surgical procedures with two neurosurgeons I have developed a great working relationship with over the years.
Keep in mind that chiropractic and surgery usually go together about like oil and water. But today I was treated like royalty by the surgeons and the staff in each of the ORs. I got to witness firsthand the procedures I usually only see before or after they happen, and I left the hospital with a newfound respect for these people and the roles they play in each of these cases... not to mention the technicalities of the procedures themselves.
Beyond that, today cemented in my mind that we are all on the same team. Whether you’re a surgeon, a chiropractor, a PT, or an ATC, the ultimate goal is to get our people well.
I am grateful for this opportunity that few in my profession have been granted, as well as being invited back to experience more days like today.
