Is chiropractic care safe for children One of the most common questions I get from patients is, “Is chiropractic care safe for children,” or “Can my children come in here and receive chiropractic care?” The answer is yes, chiropractic care is safe for kids, and yes, you can bring your kids in to receive chiropractic care.

Do I need to take vitamin supplements every day Patients often ask me if they really need to take vitamin supplements every day, or if they can skip them if they just eat healthy. My answer is that scientists have proven taking multivitamins will help you live longer. Their research even shows that you might live 5% longer compared to people who don’t take a daily multivitamin. That may not seem like much, but for the average US life expectancy, it’s 4 more years.
