Chiro Boot Camp

Chiro Boot Camp

  Transforming into a stronger, healthier version of yourself doesn't come overnight.  It takes work, sacrifice and sometimes a bit of suffering to experience change for the good. Take Marine Corps training as an example... Imagine the change from civilian life to recruit.  You go from sleeping-in late, to 4 am wake calls.  Dining a-la-carte, to chowing down whatever's in front of you at mess.  Hours binge watching your favorite TV series to 'binging' after hours of intense PT. It's not a comfortable process, but if you persevere... in the end you BECOME the person you signed up to be. Starting a new Chiropractic regimen may sometimes feel like you're going through boot camp. Unlike other therapies that simply mask your symptoms, Chiropractic care forges you into something new and with that change may come some discomfort. But don't lose hope... keep your eye on the prize and remember why you signed up in the first place - to be the best you can be. Happy Memorial day - God bless all who have fallen for freedom.   Thanks for Telling the Story... If you're a Chiropractor or CA, help your patients get the Big Idea with a fresh teaching every week!

Grand Central Brain Stem

Grand Central Brain Stem

  Grand Central Station is a one of America's largest railroad terminals serving 5 counties in New York and Connecticut.  It covers 48 acres and has 44 platforms, more than any other railroad station in the world.  Its underground platforms serve 41 tracks on the upper level and 26 on the lower. 150,000 people walked through the doors for its inauguration on February 2, 1913 and now, 750,000 visitors pass through daily. Now some interesting facts about your own Grand Central Station, the brain stem. The human brain stem is the ultimate switching station of your body.  Although its size is 1.5 x 2 inches, over 450 million nerve fibers cross through it including those that handle motor functions, fine touch, vibration sensation, spatial awareness, pain and temperature. It plays a critical role in cardiac and respiratory regulation as well as consciousness and sleeping. When nerve flow is hindered through the brain stem, the body becomes sick... when it ceases, the body dies. In the world of Chiropractic, the brain stem receives much attention for its critical role in nerve transmission and its susceptibility to interference from upper cervical subluxations. There are Chiropractors who focus their entire practice on maintaining the alignment of this area - and it's amazing the change one can experience in their health when brain stem interference is gently cleared.   Thanks for Telling the Story...

Flexible Like a Fiddlehead

Flexible Like a Fiddlehead

  Young fern shoots are flexible and supple as compared to the old, fallen leaves and brittle tree branches that surround them in early spring.  The former is full of Life and potential, the later - devoid of it.  The same can be said for your spine and your health. Flexibility and youth go hand in hand.  In 1921, Dr. Henry Winsor performed medical autopsies which clearly demonstrated a connection between rigid and worn spinal segments and the corresponding chronic organ disease that followed.  So telling were his findings that he concluded - it's not that you get rigid and stiff as you grow older... you actually turn old and sick as you lose normal joint motion and alignment.  "A man is as old as his spine." - H. Winsor, MD (references) It's a fact.  Loss of spinal mobility ages you prematurely, and it can start in your in your 40's, 30's or even younger unless you have a plan to counter act it.  It just so happens, regular Chiropractic adjustments can help you stay youthful, subtle and flexible like a fiddle head vs. lifeless and old, like a broken tree branch.   Thanks for Telling the Story...

Is This LIFE Support?

Is This LIFE Support?

  There are still some MD's who get into a tizzy when they find out their patient is seeing a Chiropractor. "Don't let them touch your neck!" is the tongue lashing you'll hear before trying to exit the exam room with some sense dignity left.  Well, here's a news flash... Another study has emerged spotlighting the dangers of MEDICAL intervention. Turns out, according to a recent 2016 BMJ Study, medical care in the US accounts for 251,000 deaths per year - making it the 3rd leading cause of death behind #1 heart disease (661K) and #2 cancer (585K).  And you can bet your bottom dollar that most of #1 and #2, with the tackle box of prescriptions the average American consumes, are iatrogenic as well.  When you put the safety of Chiropractic up against modern medicine, any honest doctor will tell you the competition isn't close. According to their own research, the odds of walking away healthier from the medical system than when you first entered are not good.  You're far safer walking in and out of a Chiropractor's office.  Instead of putting people on life support, Chiropractors are the ones supporting LIFE.

A Dime’s Worth of Damage

A Dime’s Worth of Damage

  The weight of a dime, 8-10 mm of Hg, that's all it takes to drain normal nerve transmission to a trickle.  Stretching a nerve by as little as 6% can also decrease it's signal strength by 70%.   So what does that mean for you? Your Nerve System transmits the data of Life.  Depending on role, thickness and sheath covering, some nerves can relay information from your brain to your body at speeds exceeding 200 mph.  If those impulses are communicating vital instructions like 'how many times your heart needs to beat,' or 'how should your immune system respond to a pre-cancerous lesion,' you want those messages traveling at the highest possible speeds - with NO interference.  If those signals get blocked at the spinal level because of misaligned vertebrae (subluxations), damage to your health becomes eminent. . Sustained pressure and stretch on spinal nerves may not manifest symptoms immediately.  Detrimental effects usually grow silently until a crisis occurs.  That's why it's important to keep your spine in proper alignment with Chiropractic care - so your good health doesn't stop on a dime.
