21 Flamingos

My daughter just recently turned 21, and if I tell you that 21 years went by in a flash, it would be an understatement. I had always envisioned being with her on this momentous birthday, taking her and her friends out to a nice dinner, and then cover a bar tab that would commensurate with turning 21 years old. However, due to the current pandemic being with her just wasn't in the cards. So we were left to creating ways to celebrate her birthday remotely. We sent cupcakes and small gift items; however, I knew I wanted to do something else for her birthday.

Should I See A Chiropractor For Life?

A frequent comment or question I hear often is - once you go to a chiropractor, do you have to go for regular checkups and should you go for the rest of your life? This question always makes me smile. My philosophy is to see patients as little as possible, with patients maintaining results as long as possible. This philosophy is exactly why I created the Backbridge. This simple product allows my patients to maintain spine health at home. Many chiropractic and physical therapy patients don't need to see a chiropractor every week or see a physical therapist everyday, but taking care of your spinal health should be part of your daily routine.

The question, should I see a chiropractor for life, always starts a great discussion; do you feel the same way about going to the dentist? Or how about going to the gym or eating healthy foods? Should we only do these things once? Absolutely not! Preventative care is critical; we should be taking care of our teeth daily and our bodies daily. Checkups by respective doctors should happen each year, and more frequently, if needed, to help maintain healthy bodies – and teeth!

Taking care of your body and health is a life-long pursuit, and chiropractic care can be an integral part of your overall mission to health. I am a strong believer in preventative medicine and being proactive for my own health. I don't wait until I have a severe toothache to go to the dentist. I set up periodic checkups to make sure that all is ok with my teeth and gums. We need to take this same approach when it comes to our spine and spinal health.

Our spines, and the health of our spines, impact every nerve, muscle, organ, and bone in our entire body. Simple daily spinal decompression and use of the Backbridge at home for two minutes, two times a day, is as simple as brushing your teeth! I urge you to look at your spinal health and make taking care of your spine, like you do your teeth, a priority.

Your body will thank you for it.

How to Avoid Pain in Your QL

The quadratus lumborum muscle, known as the QL, is an important lower back muscle that connects your spine to your pelvis. Pain in the QL can be due to overuse, stress, and strain because muscles cause pain and stiffness when they're weak or too tight. Activities such as sitting for long periods of time can reduce blood flow to an area, especially in the QL and surrounding areas.
