Why all moms need chiropractic!

This picture of Laura and her two beautiful kids was taken yesterday while she was in for her adjustment. This is a common sight in my office. New moms carrying a 12 lb baby in an 8 lb car seat with a 10lb diaper bag/purse and the occasional older sibling on the other arm. That’s 50 extra pounds hanging off of her in various ways and none in an orthopedically correct way! Add the breastfeeding, and loading and unloading all of them into the car and you have a recipe for problems. Headaches, shoulder pain, low back pain, sciatica and hip pain are the most common problems I see. We’re here to help you handle those stresses and still feel great. Find out if we can help you too!

Your SmartPhone is Killing Your Neck!

I used to say that half of my practice was made up of people with neck pain.  Of those people, I’d say half were from accidents or injuries and half were from posture.  Well, posture is taking over.  Especially with smart phones and people texting, reading, tweeting, and browsing on their smart phone.  As that head moves forward, the pressure on your neck increases because your head is like a twelve pound bowling ball sitting on the end of a flexible stick.  Gravity pulls it down and the force is more the more it sits in front of your body.  Hold your head up….take a break from the phone.  Great link here
