As the Twig Bends So Grows the Tree

During a complimentary consultation I briefly discuss what normal and abnormal structure is and how it affects the function of our body. A prospective patient must be familiar with this to have a better understanding of their secondary condition(s) or symptoms. A question that may come up is, “how many people come into your office having a perfect looking spine?” Well, most of the population has some type of a segmental displacement. The ones who happen to walk through the front door of my office are the ones who are experiencing secondary conditions or symptoms as a result of their structural problems. These may include neck pain, back pain, headaches, and numbness and tingling into the extremities.  The reasons why most folks have segmental displacements is because of compensations to traumas or accidents that occurred earlier in life. As the old saying goes “as the twig bends so grows the tree.”

Numbness and Tingling: Normal or a Warning Sign?

A common condition that I see in my office is numbness and tingling that travels into the extremities. Some people think that it’s normal or just a part of the “aging” process to experience this but in fact this type of secondary condition can be an indicator of a much deeper problem.

In order to understand these secondary conditions we first need to understand a bit of anatomy and how nerve information is sent through the body. Nerves in the neck travel down the arms to your hands and nerves in the low back travel down the legs to your feet.

Cupping Bruises to Help You Heal

The Rio Olympics wrapped up last month and these games haven’t disappointed.  Many world and Olympic records were broken.  Athletes of many nations competed, some becoming overnight house-hold names due to their amazing athleticism and record breaking completions.  I always enjoy watching the Olympic games for just this reason, whether summer or winter, the camaraderie, and the fact that anything can happen, keeps me on the edge of my seat.

My Visit To Google Ann Arbor

I’m sure you’ve heard the statistic that people fear public speaking more than they do death. This is not the case for me; in fact, I’m kind of an odd ball in that I really enjoy public speaking. I jump at the opportunity to share valuable health related information with groups and organizations — information that I feel may benefit all of us. Topics that I’ve presented have ranged from “Eat Fat Lose Fat”, “Bullet Proofing Your Body”, “Sugar… America’s Addiction”, to “What Exercises are best for Beauty and Appearance.”
