Time to get rid of your headaches!

Headaches are a topic I personally love. They tend to be a lot more complex than most people realize. There are actually several different kinds: classic migraines, non-classical migraines, tension headaches, cluster, cervico-genic (resulting from pain in the neck), and a few more! Each type has its own set of symptoms that set them apart from another and it’s important to know those differences. A lot of my new patients…

How Does a Chiropractic Treatment Work?

Each joint in your body, from your ankle to the bones in your neck, are designed to have a particular range of motion, specific to the joint. Your elbow for example: it can flex, extend, and rotate. Your low back can flex from side to side as you bend. When the joints are working properly, we have what we call “full range of motion.” Sometimes, these joints become stuck or…

Pinched Nerves Part 1: Joint Dysfunction, AKA Subluxation

Wow. What a broad category “pinched nerves” are. It’s one of those catch all terms that encompasses dozens of conditions and symptoms.

Sounds like an ad for the army doesn’t it? To professional athletes, who are expected to perform at such high standards all the time, even the tiniest of ailments can throw off their game greatly. They are so highly tuned for what…

The Inflammatory Diet

I’m big into the “cause and effects” of musculoskeletal conditions like joint dysfunctions (i.e. subluxations), muscle disorders, and disc problems. But that seems a bit obvious. It’s what I do every day. But that means I really enjoy focusing on how it all works. Why are you in pain? Is there some reason why you are prone to certain pain patterns? And the answer is yes! Each person is unique,…
