WHAT IS CRYOTHERAPY?

Don’t be fooled by the fancy name, cryotherapy is a simple concept that involves exposing your body to very cold temperatures for a specific amount of time. Have you ever used an ice pack on your neck or your back? If so, you have done a little cryotherapy on yourself! Good work. As a former athlete and sports doc, I have always been attracted to ICE as the first line of defense. While most folks hate being cold, ice works incredibly well at treating acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries at a very low-cost. Why is it so effective? Cold...

Pregnancy & Chiropractic

Being pregnant may seem like something you think is going to be fun and challenging, but instead rocks your world in ways you never anticipated. You might appreciate the beauty of this messy growing experience from the deepest part of your being despite all of the odd physical changes and lack of sleep, but you might also feel less than enthusiastic about your current physical reality. Pregnant women may experience more physical complaints than usual: low back pain, numbness and tingling, sciatica, hip pain, headaches, pubic symphysis...

Pain in my…psoas?

Posted by on Apr 24, 2013 in Blog, Chiropractic, Uncategorized, Wellness | 0 comments

Many of you experience hip, low back, or glute pain that is intricately linked to various muscles, rather than what many might think of first — Did I slip a disc (disc herniation)? Is my back locked up (Facet Imbrication/Syndrome), Do I have a pinched nerve, or Sciatica? Please note that all of these conditions may co-exist with muscular disturbances, but it is important to understand that the muscles alone play a key role. After years treating patients with these complaints, I’ve become accustomed to finding patterns in muscles. I...

Why Are Doctors Giving YOU The Wrong ADVICE?

Posted by on Jan 29, 2013 in Chiropractic, Uncategorized, Wellness | 0 comments

Have you ever been confused about whether you should ICE, or use heat after an injury, or with pain? Unfortunately, choosing the wrong therapy may actually impair the healing process and only provide temporary subjective relief. I’m often shocked by how many MD’s often give their patients the WRONG advice when it comes to this topic. MDs prescribe heat so frequently for highly inflamed conditions, which only perpetuates the pain and inflammation. Strange, right? So, below are some tips to help you stay...

Almost everyone freaks out around the Holidays. It’s inevitable. STRESS.  Whaaa, boohoo, let’s begin our pity party now and insert the dreaded victim voice. “I’ve got too much to do and no time for myself, my family is in town and I can’t work out, the food is too good and I can’t say no, I don’t know what NOT to eat so let’s just eat whatever, my family stresses me out and this is my reward to INDULGE.” I get it. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday for many reasons. There’s something about the combo of food, family, and...

My Big Confession

I’M A WEE BIT EMBARRASSED by this little secret, but I think it’s important to share my views on this subject because I get asked about this topic all the time. Honestly, this is one area where I say one thing and do the exact opposite. Yes, I believe there’s a word for this–hypocrisy. Part of my knowledge, expertise and understanding as a chiropractor revolves around counseling patients regarding ergonomics, posture, proper lifting techniques and lifestyle choices that will make an impact on their musculoskeletal system.

Ever wake up and wonder what you are doing with your life, or if you are making an impact? Ever challenge yourself to think beyond your day-to-day tasks and identify what you really want? It probably doesn’t happen every day because it can be overwhelming to think about. Unfortunately for us real-lifers, research proves that this type of global thinking improves our happiness.
