Ask any athlete or weekend warrior how they are doing and, after some pleasantries, they may start to tell you about their knee pain. Although the knee is subject to many injuries and problems, many if not most of them have one underlying cause: misalignment of the involved joints. These may include not only the … Read moreRead More >
For some reason, I have been seeing a lot of kids lately. Two things always strike me about working with kids, 1) even though their resilient young bodies often don’t feel it, they have a lot going on in terms of spinal misalignments/fixations and 2) they respond really well to treatment. Perhaps it’s not surprising … Read moreRead More >

It has far more reaching effects on the body then a mere vitamin. Ideal levels in the blood are associated with lower cancer rates, decreased inflammation and better overall … Read moreRead More >
I was working on a patient yesterday. She is in her 70s. As I was lightly stretching her neck, she told me that many of her friends her age are continually complaining about their aches and pains but she can’t get them to come in and see me.

I would happily check the spines of interested customers and give them a consultation about what I found. Usually … Read moreRead More >

A close friend rushes to the emergency room complaining of severe chest pain which turns out to be related to the joints in his chest, not his heart.

I recently worked on a patient who had been seeing me regularly for low back pain. Part of her issue was that her pelvis was extremely fixated. As result, this put more stress on her lumbar spine. Restoring proper motion to her pelvis was an integral part of helping to correct her low back. When … Read moreRead More >
In addition to getting patients out of pain quickly, I always want to address some of the underlying health concerns that might be causing their pain. For this reason, I recommend my patients take fish oil regularly. Fish oil is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids which reduces inflammation in the body. Excessive inflammation … Read moreRead More >
I’m convinced that every generation looks at the next upcoming generation with a sense of fear and despair. And yet, the next generation always seems to pull through.
