The back-to-school season is a great time to establish new, healthier habits. Learning how to properly carry things in a backpack is important for many years past the school age years, but if your child learns the importance of maintaining proper posture even when carrying heavy things, their muscles and joints will thank you for the rest of their lives!

Pregnancy is a wonderful/painful whirlwind of hormone-fueled changes to a woman’s body and mind. So many aches and pains occur (and often linger afterward) from the changes in anatomy and body mechanics that leave many women in question of what they can safely do to help relieve them and ready their body for labor. As a two-time pregnancy champion (or survivor, maybe?) I speak from personal experience in addition to my professional experience in contributing to the health of pregnant women in my community.

Golf is much more physically demanding than people give it credit for. Combine that with how the vast majority of golfers don’t discover the sport until well into adulthood, golf injuries are quite common.

Second to low back pain, elbow pain is the most common problem golfers’ come across. Golfer’s Elbow is even a term many practitioners use to describe the certain elbow pain golfers commonly feel. Tennis Elbow is just as if not more common among golfers-the difference is the side of the elbow where the pain is felt.

Most people do not give golf the athletic credit it deserves. Proper golf swings utilize the entire body, the right side just as much as the left. The most common injury site for Golfers is the low back. Usually this is rooted in not being flexible enough in the torso, low back, and pelvic floor muscles.

This lack of flexibility leads to sloppy form-and injury is almost inevitable.

Infant chiropractic care is one aspect of the chiropractic industry that has been constantly under a microscope. Since I am a mother myself I can empathize with parents and other doctors if they have never witnessed infant chiropractic care before and are anxious. The top three reasons parents bring their infants to me are for colic, ear infections, and wellness care. Digestive issues like acid reflux (which many people argue is the root cause of many colic cases) tend to have a high success rate with chiropractic care as well.
