One Small Step: Plantar Fasciitis

A common disorder that is presented to health care practices that routinely treat the foot and ankle is Plantar Fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis though commonly encountered is not so easily resolved. This disorder can be symptomatic for long periods of time and can reoccur showing no signs of going away.


Relief Has Come: Herniated Discs

Discs play an integral part in dispersing the pressure on your spine as we move. More or less they act as shock absorbers of the spine. They have enormous resiliency but are subject to wear and tear like anything else in the natural world. As we and our spine’s age, the outer coverings of these discs can wear thin from repetitive strain and the jelly like center can start to ooze out.


Not My Neck

Every now and then a patient comes to me with chronic headaches and neck pain that was referred to me by their primary care provider for evaluation with one stipulation, no cervical manipulation. The patient also reiterates that they do not want their neck to be cracked or popped. I get it when movies portray the twisting motion of the head that eventually breaks the neck but that is a mere impossibility when it comes to Chiropractic manipulation of the neck. The cracking sound has nothing to do with breaking bones and the last I checked everyone is walking out of the clinic on the own accord. This fear factor is why only 8- 11 percent of the population utilize Chiropractic care.


To CBD or not to CDB

The days of reefer madness are long gone with the marijuana gold rush sweeping the nation. The stigma of cannabis is lessening as they are finding medicinal benefits without the adverse side effects that most pharmaceutical medicines have. There are on the other hand, psychotropic side effects from the THC compound found in marijuana. That is where Cannabidiol or otherwise known as CBD comes in.


Text Neck

So, now comes the unwelcome news of the side effects of the world’s addiction to information. If left untreated, inflammation begins to work on the soft tissues of the neck like muscles, tendons, ligaments, and intervertebral discs.


Elderly Falls

Almost half of elderly people ages seventy or older will fall at least once in their lives.  This increases the chances of them dramatically causing damage to their bodies which then leads to weakness and fragility.
