As I look at my practice and the service I provide to my patients, I try to look at the experience from the patient’s point of view. I also try to look at other industries as inspiration for ideas I can apply to my practice. In the tech industry there is a term for an…Read More >
I had an interesting experience some years ago. I developed low level pain on my right shoulder blade. Basically it was a slight misalignment of my rib head. The odd thing about it was that it never got bad enough that it reached my full level of consciousness. It did very slowly worsen over time.…Read More >
I realize I am a bit spoiled when it comes to having to put up with the aches and pains that are a part of regular life. To say nothing of the not-so-regular aches and pains that can come from auto accidents or any other traumatic injuries. For me, it is a simple matter to…Read More >
My heart goes out to patients who come in due to auto accident injuries. I know full well that the injuries that occur in what appears to be even a low-speed accident can severely jar a patient’s body and result in severe pain. Without proper treatment, the risks become higher that the pain will become…Read More >
As the old joke goes, “a specialist is someone who knows more and more about less and less until they know everything about nothing”. The field of medicine is full of specialists. Not surprising when one considers the enormous complexity of the human body. The problem is that specializing in one aspect of the human…Read More >
After practicing for almost 20 years as a chiropractor, I have definitely seen patterns that occur as I evaluate and treat patients. Some of them are bit difficult to explain. Why do knees tend to misalign laterally much more often than medially? Others are more obvious. The forward head posture brought about by our computers…Read More >
I recently had a patient who came in for neck pain. When I asked her my usual follow-up question of what else she might have going on, she expressed significant concern about clicking in her knee during exercise. Her concerns were well-founded. Clicking in the knee, or any joint, may be of little significance or…Read More >
I have to admit I am a bit of a geek when it comes to new technology. Even more so when those innovations that can directly help my patients. So I was happy when we received our updated foot scanner from Foot Levelers. For quite a few years now we have dispensed with using plaster…Read More >
When I was finishing chiropractic school and finally achieving a certain level of confidence in adjusting the spine, my attention went to the other joints in the body-the extremities. I never wanted a patient to come to me complaining about knee pain or hip pain or wrist pain if I was less than 100% confident…Read More >
I started out using an adjusting instrument to treat patients fairly early on in my practice. Although we all had to master manual adjusting (treating patients by hand) in chiropractic school, I was drawn to the precise control that could be achieved with an adjusting instrument. Specifically, I can control the precise direction I want…Read More >
As a chiropractor it is incumbent upon me to be acutely aware of the areas in which I excel. That is, the areas in which chiropractic best applies while being cognizant of my limitations and those of the field of chiropractic. Chiropractic is best suited for removing fixations in joints that are stuck. The chiropractic…Read More >
As the hectic holidays come to an end and the beginning of a new year lies before us, a unique perspective can unfold. This time of year invites a certain level of contemplation. If you are like me, you are looking forward to the promise of the next year even as you marvel at how…Read More >
