The spine is one of the most important structures in your body. Not only does it protect your spinal cord, but it also provides the central component for your entire skeletal system and a stable column of support for every movement you make. Just like we often don't think about our teeth until we are facing a root canal, tooth extraction or full upper dentures, we often don't truly understand the importance of our spine until we have pain, are prevented from enjoying our favorite activities or are facing a serious surgery. The chiropractic adjustment is the most powerful tool for maintaining a healthy spine. Chiropractic care is as important for your spine as regular dental care is for your teeth.

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.

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.

Neck pain affects more than 10 million people each year and is one of the most common reasons that people go to see their medical doctor - but is that really the most effective solution? A recent study on patients with neck pain compared chiropractic care to the typical intervention from a medical doctor (prescription drugs) and the results were quite interesting.

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.
