Happy APRIL!

April has arrived and has made us sit up and notice its presence. Rain, thunder, lightning, high winds and tornadoes and that was all on day one. The forces of nature are amazing and give us reason to pause, take notice and then help others in need.

The inner wisdom of your body controls and coordinates every function of your body. It is a life force and when it is "off" it makes you take notice, usually, sometimes, hopefully before it's too late to make a correction. You see, often vertebral subluxations do not give us any symptoms. There is no storm or warning. Yet, the function of your body is compromised. You may get an alert. You may not. The only way to know if you are subluxated is to get checked by a chiropractor. Helping others, in this case, is to teach them and tell them the importance of regular chiropractic adjustments.

You have just one life. Make the best of it. Choose better foods, exercise a little bit more, read a book or two, pray, meditate, take time to appreciate those around you and spend time with your loved ones.

You'll notice we have some changes to the April calendar particularly April 15, 17 and 22. We will be spending time with our son and attending our annual chiropractic convention.

We appreciate every one of you and are honored to serve you as your chiropractors.

See you on your next visit.

What we do and why we do it

In chiropractic school, I was taught by the college President, Dr. Thom Gelardi, the importance of knowing what you do and why you do it. He stated that a profession was defined by it's objective. And that particular objective determines what measures are used to accomplish it.

So let's start right from the beginning.

What is the chiropractic objective as practiced in this office?

Our objective is to locate, analyze and assist your body in correcting vertebral subluxations so that it may function as best it can for as long as it can. Period.

What is a vertebral subluxation?

A vertebral subluxation is a condition where one or more spinal bones (vertebrae) becomes misaligned with the one above, the one below, or both, to an extent less than a dislocation that results in interference to the nerve system (the body's master controller) and negatively impacts the body's performance and innate potential. Your nervous system controls everything. Gray's Anatomy calls it the “Master Controller.”

Why do we correct vertebral subluxations?

Simply put, that it’s better to live unsubluxated than subluxated, no matter what your circumstances are otherwise. Period. Stress (physical, mental emotional) can overload your nervous system. Each person has a unique potential in life. With vertebral subluxation, it's impossible to realize that potential! Visiting our office (and those with similar objectives) is the only way to know if vertebral subluxations are present and interfering with the fullest expression of your unique potential. In fact, those who understand the effects of vertebral subluxations choose to have their spines checked regularly and on an ongoing basis independent of symptoms. This is the best recommendation that anyone - non-therapeutic chiropractor or anyone else, for that matter - can give regarding vertebral subluxations. I have no reason ever to tell someone otherwise."

Forgetting to Wind Your Wristwatch

How fortunate we are to have an innate intelligence that strives to organize and reorganize our physiology in order to help us adapt and survive in an ever-changing environment.


It remembers to keep our heart beating, our lungs breathing, our immune system working, and trillions of other jobs we need to survive.


We who forget to wind our watch would forget to wind our heart at night and not wake up in the morning.


It's a good thing we have this principle of organization and coordination called innate intelligence, which is always on the job.


 It is a good idea to make sure your spine is cleared of subluxations so that your innate intelligence is better able to do its job.

jelly beans” contest

See you on your next visit.

How much weight would you lose if you worked out once and skipped a dessert today?

Probably not much, right?


In fact, if you are truly interested in weight loss or a fitness program, regular exercise and better nutrition must become a way of life.


How much would you benefit from one adjustment or an adjustment every once in a while? Again, probably not that much. Health is a process, not an event.      


Anything related to health - eating right, exercising, proper rest, a good attitude, proper hygiene, etc., must be done or kept up regularly to experience the true benefits.  


Chiropractic is no different.      


Regular adjustments over a long period of time help to restore normal alignment in your spinal column, helping to reestablish the connection between brain and body, allowing the free flow expression of your innate intelligence. This enables the body to work better.   


Regular spinal checkups and adjustments should be a part of human maintenance that needs to be done from birth to death. It will make you healthier, improve all aspects of your life, allowing you to live a richer and fuller life.
