Take drugs for you minor ache and pains and you notice the problem is still there. Maybe the MD’s should refer you to chiropractic and get to the root of the problem, drug free option. Did you know that between 75% to 90% of all visits to the medical doctor don’t require any drugs at all? You already knew that, didn’t you? Deep down in your heart you sensed your body could heal itself, if you just knew how. But that’s not the bad news. The really bad news is American medical doctors are not equipped to help you. They try their best. But because they utilize a biochemical model of the body, all they can offer you are drugs like Vicadin, Prozac, Lipitor, and Celebrex. Now don’t get me wrong. Medical doctors are AWESOME at a lot of...

3 Great Options For Temporary Pain Relief…

Posted by on Sep 5, 2016 in nervous system, pain, recovery | Comments Off on 3 Great Options For Temporary Pain Relief…

My philosophy has always been offer pain relief as quickly as possible so that you can get on with your daily life, BUT ALSO heal the underlying condition that’s causing the pain.

The reason I take this approach is because if I only treat your pain and symptoms, and not the reason why you have the pain or symptoms, then even if you feel...

Faster Wound Healing – Laser light stimulates fibroblast development and accelerates collagen synthesis in damaged tissue. Increased Metabolic Activity – Higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells and thus greater production of the basic food source for cells, Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP). Reduced Fibrous Tissue Formation – Laser light reduces the formation of scar tissue following tissue damage from: cuts, scratches, burns or post surgery. Anti-Inflammatory Action – Laser light reduces swelling caused by bruising or inflammation of joints to give enhanced joint mobility.

have You Minimized your injury?

Posted by on Nov 3, 2014 in benefits, Blog, expectations, pain | Comments Off on have You Minimized your injury?

Have you minimized the extent of your pain and injury? That may set you up to have an unrealistic expectation for treatment. There’s a situation that comes up from time to time with my patients that I want to share with you. It’s called minimizing. Let me illustrate what minimizing is with two stories. The first story involves a female patient in her late 50’s. She came into the office with severe lower back pain.

There was a tremendous loss of health in that area of her body. This patient came in for her chiropractic adjustments for approximately 2 weeks and then stopped. I didn’t see her until 2 months later. I asked her why...
