Food Label Reading

If you happen to be a fan of Oprah, as my wife is, you probably have seen an episode or two with Dr. Oz. He is a medical doctor who regularly makes appearances on the show to discuss healthy living and disease prevention.

Recently, he covered an important topic regarding something most people tend to overlook as it pertains to daily lifestyle and health, reading food labels… Continue reading

How Much Are You Worth?

Welcome to 2007! What are you going to do now?

I have spent the last two weeks discussing New Years Resolutions with family members, friends, and my patients. The top answers have just about all been related to the person’s health. Weight loss goals, nutritional changes, smoking cessation, and increasing exercise, etc. I’m sure that most of you reading this can relate.

The question that needs to be answered is this… Continue reading

Simply Chiropractic – February 2007

The television show, America’s Funniest Home Videos, provides moments of pure comedy and moments of pure shock. The sheer amount of human follies that happen to be caught on video astounds me, and even more so when I think that the show must only represent a fraction of the slips, falls, impacts, and other injuries that occur in this world.

This show should be evidence that every person in this world should be… Continue reading

Neck Adjustments Are Safe – March 2007

Recently, a patient of mine, a medical professional, reported to me that her co-workers, at a local hospital, were extremely opposed to the idea of my patient seeking chiropractic care, explaining how “dangerous” it can be. An orthopedic doctor even told her that chiropractic adjustments cause strokes.

Sadly, this type of misleading scenario is far from uncommon.

So do chiropractic adjustments cause strokes? Continue reading

Office Ergonomics – April 2007

Sadly, in today’s work environment, it is not uncommon for people to sit at a computer desk for 8-10 hours.

I would like to offer some simple advice that will make your workday a lot more enjoyable and less painful.

It is not only the construction jobs, or the jobs that require a great deal of bending and lifting that cause on-the-job injuries anymore. Working at a computer can be equally… Continue reading

Time For A Little R&R – June 2007 (as published in the Chadds Ford Post and Kennett Papers)

Health care professionals spend much of their patient education time discussing things like the importance of a balanced diet and exercise. These are certainly two key ingredients in developing a wellness lifestyle, but getting proper rest can be just as important in optimizing your health. Continue reading

Golf and Chiropractic (as published in the Chadds Ford Post and Kennett Paper)

As a chiropractor, I often joke that it is my professional and ethical duty to play the game of golf.

Golf, to those of us who play, is definitely a passion sport. Most golfers won’t pass up an opportunity to talk about their best round, or tell the story of their “almost” hole-in-one. And I’m the first one to admit, that to non-golfers, talking about and watching the game can be quite boring.

But, if you are a golfer looking for that extra ingredient to knock one more stroke off your game, a spinal stabilization program could be your answer. Most professional and many amateur golfers have learned… Continue reading
