When Your Back Gets the Boot

When Your Back Gets the Boot

  You woke up this morning, tried to get out of bed only to discover your back is completely locked up - like a steel parking boot has been slapped on it, rendering your whole body UN-driveable. Maybe you should have paid more attention to the warnings signs that were piling up over the past several months. Neglect is the enemy of normal function. That little twinge in your back you felt a few days ago, the morning soreness you've been getting more often, think of them as 'parking tickets' warning you to get in compliance with the laws spinal maintenance or pay a heftier penalty down the road. When you continue to ignore ticket after ticket, don't be surprised if one day you find your entire spine seized and locked out of commission. That's what happens when subluxations go unchecked and uncorrected. So the lesson of the story... don't wait for your spinal issues to get out of hand before doing something about it. Be responsible... take care of the small infractions (subluxations) in your spine now before they lead to bigger problems in the future.   Thanks for Telling the Story...

I’d Rather Be Fishing

I’d Rather Be Fishing

  There was a time where tackle boxes were used to hold fishing gear. Bobbers, hooks and perhaps your favorite lures all found a home in one of many varying sized, slotted compartments. Now those boxes are used to hold the multitude of drugs so many seniors are prescribed. According to a recent analysis by the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics, people aged 65-79 receive more than 27 prescriptions for new drugs per year. It doesn't start off that high. One prescription most likely created a side effect which begat the need for another, which begat the need for another, which begat yet another, so on and so for - like a bad, chemical ancestral lineage.  Until one day, only a tackle box can 'tackle' the volume of meds needed every day. Still, there ARE senior citizens who need little to no prescriptions - they're vibrant, alert, active and full of Life. It makes you wonder what they did during their lifetime to reap such healthy rewards late in life - most likely they spent more time at their favorite fishing hole, than at their favorite doctor's office.   Thanks for Telling the Story...

Healing on a Spare

Healing on a Spare

  In case you get a flat, the temporary “donut” in your trunk is meant to get you off the road and to the nearest service station for proper repair ASAP. Manufacturer’s instructions warn you to take it slow and easy when driving on them - those tiny tires aren’t designed to withstand the load of normal driving. But regardless of that warning, you’ve probably seen some idiot speeding down the highway on one, oblivious to the potential risks. . Some people treat their health that way. When they get an injury or a health problem they mask their symptoms with ‘spare tire’ medication, all the while continuing the activities that got them there in the first place. They pay little attention to the risks of temporarily patching their problem with drugs and pass on fixing the CAUSE of their problem. That can get you into trouble. . When it comes to acute or chronic health problems, the best policy is to fix the underlying cause of the problem the right way instead of masking the symptoms with medication. That’s the core philosophy of drugless Chiropractic care. In the short term drugs may bring you false comfort, but in the long run you’re risking a serious blow out. Thanks for Telling the Story...

Roller Coaster Chiropractic

Roller Coaster Chiropractic

  It’s not uncommon to see clients who get great results from chiropractic stop their care once they feel good, only to return with their original problem or something worse.  Many repeat this cycle over and over again - traveling up and down the feel good, feel bad roller coaster of temporary relief, without truly getting healthy. Chiropractic used correctly goes beyond the wavering cycles of symptomatic care, to pursuing the higher standard of optimal function.  Whether you feel good or bad, a body that exists in a sustained subluxated state is less likely to repair itself when injured or perform to its best when under demand.  If, however your body is allowed to reach its full potential with regular adjustments and a perpetually clear Nerve System, the sky's the limit to what you can achieve. If your chiropractor gets you up and over the first challenging hill on your road to recovery, don't expect the rest of your health to coast perpetually without some effort to keep it going.  Unfortunately, the temporary pain relief ride eventually stops.  If you want abundant health, you need to keep the Chiropractic momentum going.   Thanks for Telling the Story...

Pushed or Prescribed

Pushed or Prescribed

  Big Pharma may have just taken one of the greatest rock voices in our generation. According to his wife, Chris Cornell of Soundgarden was acting unusual. “When we spoke after the show, I noticed he was slurring his words; he was different,” his wife added. “When he told me he may have taken an extra Ativan or two, I contacted security and asked that they check on him.” Later they would find Chris dead from an apparent suicide. Ativan (lorazepam), a prescription medication used for anxiety and insomnia, list among its possible adverse effects the following: Can cause paranoid or suicidal ideation and impair memory, judgment and coordination. Maybe just enough of a reality shift to cause someone so talented, in the prime life, with a loving wife and children, touring with close friends, adored by millions to just end it all. It makes complete drug sense... Prince (fentanyl), Michael Jackson (propofol), Scott Weiland (cocaine and amphetamines) - drugs KILL, whether pushed or prescribed, whether you're famous or unknown.  Although it takes more work and effort, it's far safer to face and fix the cause of your suffering than chemically running away from it. Life is best lived CLEAR rather than under the influence.   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!
