There is no simple answer for how often you need to see your chiropractor. A lot depends on your specific issue and your response to treatment. One thing I have noticed in my practice, however, is that the patients who come in more frequently, improve more quickly than those who come less often. I will usually recommend a more frequent visit schedule in the beginning stages of treatment, 3 times per week for instance, and then reduce the frequency as the patient improves (2 times per week, 1 time per week, every other week, and so on). Whatever the recommendation, it is always beneficial to be treated more in the beginning, because symptoms return more quickly in the initial stages of treatment. … More How often should I see a chiropractor?
You’ve probably seen our catch phrase: Keeping Your Body in Balance, but what does balance mean when it comes to your body? Especially at this hectic time of year, with the holiday just over and the new year just beginning, understanding this question is especially important.
So, what does it mean to keep your body in balance and why is that so important? Our bodies are constantly in the process of attempting to return to a state of balance called homeostasis.
Chiropractic care can be your friend on the trail of life. Chiropractic works with your body to restore its proper function when it is thrown off by injury, disease, or environment. By focusing on the relationship between the body’s main structures – the skeleton, the muscles and the nerves – chiropractic care can impact every aspect of your health … More What is Balance?
Today is the very last day of Movember and as you can see, I did grow a pretty decent beard. I hope you have been reminded that caring for your health is important, even if you’re a big, tough, manly man. Women, we do need a gentle reminder from time to time. Something along the lines of “I really care about you and hope you will choose to get your screenings done” will probably work better than “Why don’t you ever go to the doctor you big baby!” Remember, we are sensitive… on the inside. 🙂 … More Movermber is Over
I had always thought that the whole Mo-vember thing was just an excuse for guys to not have to shave. It wasn’t until 2 years ago when I did my first Movember posts (Happy Mo-vember and Goodbye Movember) that I learned there was more to it than I thought. After several people liked and commented on my posts, I started looking at what they were posting and bloging. What I found was that Movember is a movement to raise awareness for men’s health issues. Check out Movember.com for excellent information on this movement. Among the most serious issues are prostate, colon, and testicular cancers. Some of these are preventable by just getting screened. From the Movember website:
“Globally, men die on average 6 years earlier than women, and for largely preventable reasons.” … More Welcome to Movember
October is National Chiropractic Month and today, October 16, 2019 is World Spine Day! I’ve been intending to get back to posting online and today seems like the perfect day to start. This also marks the 1 month anniversary (or maybe monthiversary) of opening my new practice in Lindon, Utah! I love being here and I’m so grateful for the office I was blessed to find. If you haven’t yet, please visit our new Photo Gallery to see picture of the new office. Feel free to let us know what you think.
I love being a chiropractor and find great joy in helping others to feel better and improve their quality of life, through the work that I do. It is often miraculous and always amazing to me when patients come in with serious issues and leave feeling relief of pain and improved function. … More Happy World Spine Day
Over the years, chiropractors have worked hard to educate the medical community and the public about what we do and the health benefits of chiropractic care. Recently, there have been research findings to backup the anecdotal evidence, including quite a few studies showing the efficacy of chiropractic care for treating low back pain specifically.
Today, many health care practitioners (including MDs) recognize chiropractic care as doing something beneficial, at least when it come to musculoskeletal pain (low back pain in particular). If you are still on the fence (or perhaps way out in the woods) about chiropractic, an article published in Medical News Today earlier this month might be able to sway you. … More What IS the Truth About Chiropractic?
