It's Not the Weather

It's Not the Weather

Did you know the very first Chiropractic adjustment wasn't for back pain?  Here's how it all started as told by our founder Dr. D.D. Palmer…

It's Not the Weather

It's Not the Weather

When your body responds negatively to every change in environment, the problem isn't the weather – it’s likely you're breaking one or more of the cardinal rules of Health. Proper nourishment, full body motion, adequate rest and internal cleanliness aren't cliché health needs. Practicing these basic habits enables your body to thrive amid the stresses it experiences every day. Fail to eat right and your body won't resist the elements. Failure to move your joints fully can cause even the barometric pressure of weather to wear them down. Now you've become a victim of your environment, instead of being a master of your environment.

Band Aids Don't Heal

Band Aids Don't Heal

Band Aids and Chiropractic Adjustments have something in common… neither one have the ability to heal you.  Sure, both are helpful after an injury.  But they can only provide an environment conducive for healing to take place.  Band Aids approximate damaged skin to optimize the mending, adjustments approximate misaligned vertebrae to optimize nerve flow – but it’s the innate healing power of Life inside you that scripts the repair.

Subluxations Don't Take Vacations

Subluxations Don't Take Vacations

Toes in the sand, not a cloud in the sky, 75 degree water temps.  Vacations are the perfect time to decompress, spend precious time with family and friends and reconnect with your soul.  What could possibly stress your body?

Blueprint vs. Builder

Blueprint vs. Builder

You can possess the most beautiful, detailed and well thought out set of blueprints for a mansion, but without a competent general contractor to execute those plans, the structure doesn't get built. The plan is worthless without a builder.

Healing with the Brakes on

Healing with the Brakes on

Have you ever felt like you're spinning your wheels regarding staying healthy? You eat a balanced diet, exercise multiple times a week and try to sleep enough– you've got the 'pedal to the metal' when it comes to staying fit, but something's holding you back. Maybe it's time to pay more attention to your Nerve System.

Before the Flat

Before the Flat

More work gets dropped on your desk at quitting time… Your child’s school calls to schedule an emergency parent/teacher meeting... Stress pumps into your Life like air pumping into a tire, with no end in sight - if some pressure isn’t let out soon, you’re bound to burst.

Place your Order

Which Drop Did It

Which Drop Did It

A titration test analyzes how many drops of a chemical it takes to create a specific reaction - usually a change in color.  Drop by drop, the reagent is added until an observable change is noticed.  And if asked which drop made the difference, the correct answer would be they all did.

Numb to Your Target

Numb to Your Target

According to a CDC study, suicide has become the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. and is one of three leading causes that are on the rise. Fashion creator Kate Spade and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain’s recent deaths are just two examples - with the usual media references to depression... but no specifics on how, when or where they lost sight of their PURPOSE.

Holding You Together

Holding You Together

The Major Premise of Chiropractic states "there is a universal intelligence in all matter that continually gives to it all its properties and actions, thus maintaining it in existence." Literally, something smart is holding the universe and all its components together in perfect organization and order.

Cracked, Not Slipped

Cracked, Not Slipped

The human body imitates nature's design in many ways. One in particular is the similarity between your spinal discs and a cut tree trunk. The rings of a tree tell its age. The rings of your discs tell HOW you've aged.

Toxins and Tumbles and Thoughts

Toxins and Tumbles and Thoughts

In this classic scene in The Wizard of Oz we find Dorothy, Toto, Tin Man and Scarecrow nervously walking through the forest on the lookout for the three terrible threats conjured up in their minds - lions and tigers and bears, oh my...  In Chiropractic, the three big threats we warn patients about (the big three that cause Subluxations) are physical trauma, chemical trauma and auto-suggestion (thought) trauma. Toxins and tumbles and thoughts, oh my!

Keeping Your Health Green

Keeping Your Health Green

You are proud of your lawn. You make sure to water it, feed it on schedule and try to keep the neighborhood kids off it. However, you missed a few spots with the fertilizer spreader and now there are dull, brown patches where the grass was STARVED of potential growth energy.  A similar situation can happen inside you.

A Dime's Worth of Damage

A Dime's Worth of Damage

Stretching a nerve by as little as 6% can also decrease its signal strength by 70%.   So what does that mean for you?

Process of Illumination

Process of Illumination

To eliminate darkness, you must add LIGHT. Darkness is nothing more than the void left behind in the absence of energy... in this case, “LIGHT.

A Nudge In The Right Direction

A Nudge In The Right Direction

Prolonged healing can cause frustration. The time it takes to get better from an injury or illness can sometimes feel like an eternity - and unfortunately, science shows that if you BELIEVE strongly enough, you can slow or completely stop your recovery process in its tracks.
