Operation Dumbo Drop

Are you familiar with the phrase “there’s an elephant in the room”? It’s often used when there’s something apparent going on yet no one has the courage to talk about it. Do you ever wonder if perhaps talking about it might actually clear the air, energize morale, and even kick-start productivity? Often, there’s an elusive “elephant in the room” when it comes to our health. We’ve all had a family member, friend or co-worker who seem to complain endlessly about their headaches, body aches, infections or other health concern. They might pop...

Chiropractic for Life

Posted by on 11:14 pm in Blog | 0 comments

As principled chiropractors, we believe that while traditional medicine was designed for the purpose of treating illness, chiropractic adjustment helps the body maintain innate health. This distinction is important because new members to our practice have often sought adjustment to address a specific issue. Our first order of business with new members is to educate them on the wide range of benefits from ongoing care. The better care we take of our nervous system, the better job our nervous system can do to take care of us. The nervous system...

Walk Like An Egyptian

Did you know that chiropractic care has taken on many forms since the beginning of time? There are historical accounts from as far back as 2700 B.C., which mention spinal manipulation as a tool for better body function and improved comfort. For example, Hippocrates, a Greek physician born in 460 B.C., published texts, which addressed the importance of spinal adjustment. One of his writings stated, “Get knowledge of the spine, for this is the requisite for many diseases”. This historical perspective is interesting. We’ve spent...

Head and Shoulders – Knees and Toes

Posted by on 10:57 pm in Blog | 0 comments

Chiropractic care, for many years, was considered the “go to” solution for back discomfort. Today, science confirms that chiropractic benefits go far beyond the spine because through adjustment, nerves are able to operate interference-free. That is good news for our heads, shoulders, knees, toes, organs and overall health. Chiropractic care provides the best results when adjustments are made on an ongoing basis — our bodies experience wear and tear on the muscles, bones and nerves on an ongoing basis. Everything needed for healing is...

Which Came First: the Healthy Mind or the Healthy Body?

Posted by on 10:48 pm in Blog | 0 comments

When you hear the phrase, “quality of life,” what comes to mind first? Some might think of their emotional and mental health. Others will consider their health and physical state, while someone else will automatically think of their overall lifestyle and happiness. In truth, quality of life encompasses all of the above, and when one area is suffering, the other areas can’t function properly or to their fullest potential. As your chiropractor, I believe that your quality of life is at its best when your physical and mental health are in...

Are We Too Quick to Medicate Our Kids?

Posted by on 10:44 pm in Blog | 0 comments

At Discover Chiropractic, we believe in making sense out of your challenging problems. This includes with your children as well. Too often, we see young children full of energy being diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) and then medicated for it. Instead of really looking into the root cause of why the child might be acting out or having difficulty in school, parents, teachers and doctors have opted to take the easy way out by quickly labeling and medicating. A study taken 15 years ago, showed that 3% of the population...

Go for the Gold

With all of the hype that went on with the Olympics recently, I thought this would be a good opportunity to talk about the benefits of chiropractic and sports. More and more athletes are starting to take advantage of chiropractic care and seeing real results in their performance. 2002 was the first year the USA Olympic team had a chiropractor officially on their sports medicine team and the world has witnessed what a positive effect it can have. Chiropractic makes sense when it comes to athletes and their daily lifestyle. By receiving regular...

On a Scale of One to Ten

Posted by on 10:42 pm in Blog | 0 comments

How healthy do you think you really are? And be honest. If you consider yourself to be in the seven to ten range, then you see yourself as being in good to great shape when it comes to your health. However, no matter how much you exercise and how well you eat, there’s a good chance that you have subluxation, which can cause problems throughout the body over the years. What is subluxation? This is what happens when the bones of your spine move out of position and then create pressure on spinal nerves. These nerves branch out through the entire...

Bag Got You Down?

Posted by on 10:41 pm in Blog | 0 comments

Our everyday lives are getting busier by the minute. We shuttle ourselves around from home, to work, to the gym or our kids after-school activities. Have you noticed that as people’s daily activities grow, so do women’s shoulder bags? Women’s bags have grown bigger and bigger to hold anything from laptops, a change of clothes, children’s toys etc. While this is convenient, especially if you don’t have a car, it can take a toll on your body. Carrying a weighed down purse over a long period of time can slowly do damage to the body. There is...

A Message of Hope

Posted by on 10:35 pm in Blog | 0 comments

Being a chiropractor allows me to witness powerful transformations in our practice members. They come in confused, experiencing dysfunction in the body, and perhaps reliant on prescription medications. By helping them make sense of the messages their body is sending, and with regular chiropractic adjustments, they discover hope and encouragement. So many Americans are overwhelmed with health issues. They think it is normal to feel helpless, scared, or angry. It’s no wonder; people with illness are not given encouraging advice from most...
