Low Back Pain Is Not What You Think It Is

People come to a chiropractor for many reasons, but far and away the most common reason for that first visit is back pain. That makes sense. When you have digestive trouble, infertility, asthma, or even arthritis pain, “chiropractor” is not usually the first word you think of, but when your back hurts, you call the […]

Chiropractic 101: Understanding Why Adjustments Matter To Your Wellness

When a chiropractor starts a weekly blog, you naturally expect it to be mostly about chiropractic stuff, don’t you? But here we are, over three years later, and I just realized that I can count on one hand the number of articles I’ve written about what we might call “chiropractic in the strictest sense.” You know…stuff […]

Your Body Is Screaming At You…Are You Listening?

“Charlie” came in the other day with a sour look on his face. When I asked what was wrong, he explained that his cardiologist was changing his medications and his diet again because his blood pressure, triglycerides, and LDL cholesterol were all up. He couldn’t believe it. He had thought he was making so much […]

For Best Results, Get Back To The Fundamentals of Fitness

I just got back from a fantastic daddy/daughter trip to New England with my daughter, Taryn. We had a fantastic time in the mountains north of Lake Winnipesaukee, along the border between New Hampshire and Maine. For a low-altitude Florida boy, the mountains hold a special fascination for me. Naturally, we did a lot of […]

Win The War Against Low Back Pain

Since the basis of my practice is chiropractic care, back pain is kind of my bread and butter. It makes sense: people with inflammatory bowel disorder typically don’t think of chiropractors first when looking for treatment. Eventually, I’ll fix that mindset, but for now, I’ll gladly start with back pain and work my way through the […]

Army Training, Sir! Part 2 of “Four for the Core”

Last week, we started a series of four exercise videos showing you how to tone up your core muscles using the exercises the U.S. military uses to keep their soldiers in top condition. I hope you’ve started incorporating the first exercise – “The Bridge” – into your daily workout routine. If not, now’s a great […]

Army Training, Sir! Part 1 of “Four for the Core”

General Barnicke: “Where have you been, soldier?” John Winger: “Training, sir.” Soldiers: “Training, sir!” General Barnicke: “What kind of training?” John Winger: “Army training, sir.” Soldiers: “Army training, sir.” From “Stripes” Copyright 1981, Columbia Pictures Corp. That’s one of my favorite movie scenes ever. Bill Murray leads a ragtag group of army misfits to believe […]

Why You Should Add Running Stairs to Your “Move Right Monday” Plan

You can “Move Right” anywhere. Case in point: stairs. Now, I know […]

So Simple, So Powerful: The Benefits of Walking

This may come as a shock, but not all of my patients love to exercise. I’d go so far as to say that getting some of my patients to exercise reminds me of trying to get my son to eat broccoli when he was little. In those cases, I have a compromise position that I […]
