Protecting Your Health

Protecting Your Health

Our oldest son, Will, recently graduated from Air Force Basic Training at Lackland AFB, San Antonio, TX. We were able to make the drive down there to see him graduate. It was a very special weekend for our family. We were able to watch him march with his flight to receive his coin, tour his dorm, watch him march in parade, say his oath, tour the base, and take him off base to see San Antonio. On Sunday, we attended church with him on base. The pastor talked about “Grief” that Sunday. He listed all sorts of losses that cause grief. One of the losses that I particularly remember was the loss of health. Health is one of those things many people take for granted. Some don’t even think about health until they have a problem with it. Loss of health is very devastating – we’ve seen this in our office over the years: fathers ¬†and mothers unable to provide for their family because of debilitating pain, children unable to attend school regularly, retirees unable to enjoy retirement. The pastor, himself, faced a health problem that threatened to end his military career. It was a good reminder to take care of ourselves. We are each ultimately responsible for our own health. The body is constantly regenerating cells – remarkably every few years we have a completely new body. The things we do, eat, read, and consume today are the things our bodies use to make the new cells tomorrow.

Here are some ways to help your body build strong cells tomorrow:

  • get regular chiropractic adjustments to keep the nervous system functioning optimally
  • eat only real food, homemade from scratch as often as possible- batch cooking for busy families
  • drink mostly water
  • keep moving – extended periods of sitting are as bad for your health as smoking
  • read something good for the body, mind, spirit every day
  • spend some time outdoors everyday
  • unplug from all media for an entire day or more each month

For all your chiropractic needs, call our office for an appointment or just walk in during office hours.

Do You Have Neck Pain?

Do You Have Neck Pain?


The neck is designed to carry the human head, weighing about 10 lbs, WITHOUT pain. If you have neck pain, it’s a sign that something isn’t right. You may have a structural misalignment in your neck. Remember structure = function; poor structure = poor function. Having a great neck structure is crucial – it carries a bowling ball on top of it all day. If you carry your head too far forward, you exert more pressure on your neck and upper back. If that posture continues long enough, arthritis will likely be in your future. Women are especially vulnerable to neck complaints because their bone frames are typically smaller than a male’s frame size. This is especially evident in whiplash injuries in women. We address neck pain/structural shifts in patients every day. This is a correctable condition using chiropractic adjustments, specific postural exercises, and gentle traction.
