Most people know that sugar is bad - that sugar is a source of empty calories and contributes to the obesity and diabetes epidemic in this country. Furthermore, we now know that sugar causes chronic inflammation in our bodies. Chronic inflammation is the major driving force for the development of cancer, heart disease, and arthritis. Sugar also contributes to mood swings, irritability, and depression.

Earlier this week I did a FaceBook live video about pain and when to see your chiropractor. It's an important topic so I thought I'd post a more in-depth blog about it. It's human nature to ignore pain, to wait and see if it eventually goes away. As a doctor who works with patients who are in pain everyday, I implore you to seek treatment immediately for pain rather than wait for any reason. Keep reading to find out why.

Sciatica affects over 3 milllion people per year - leading to loss of work and reduced quality of life. Sciatica is simply a term that means pain or inflammation of the sciatic nerve that runs down the back of the leg. It causes pain in the low back, buttocks, and legs - all the way to the foot sometimes. Because a nerve is directly involved, the pain can be immediate and quite severe. Luckily, sciatica is easily diagnosed and treated... and can even be prevented with a few easy lifestyle changes.

Most people have strong muscles - strong enough to carry groceries, pick up a child, lift a box or get a good workout in at the gym.. strong enough to get the stuff done you need to do without any noticeable deficit. However, if there is any lag time between when a muscle is called upon to work and when it actually fires, that muscle is neurologically weak. This is extremely important because neurologically weak muscles result in sloppy movements and eventually lead to joint degeneration and injury.
