Proper balance relies on our […]

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care Can Help with Colic

Colic is an enigma to many, both veteran parents and pediatricians alike. It is defined as unexplained and persistent crying of an infant, most commonly a newborn up to 3 months old.

The Benefits of Chiropractic Care for ADHD

As a society today, over-diagnosis and over medicating are two common problems that we face.  One of the biggest threats from this is that over-diagnosed and over-medicated children grow up to be over-diagnosed and over-medicated adults.  This can cause serious health concerns as our population ages.  We look for a “quick fix” for children with […]

How Childbirth Affects the Spine

Proactive Health vs. Reactive Health

Today’s world is all about quick fixes and immediate gratification.

Many people have a misconception that they can go to a chiropractor when they’re in pain, get adjusted, have their problems “fixed,” and never go back again, all the while being “healthy” because they’re not in pain.
