  • How Laughter and Chiropractic Heal the Body
    But did you know that laughter has some of the same healing effects as chiropractic care? Laughing is an all-natural way of lowering pain levels and relieving stress, just like Chiropractic care. Laugher reduces the level of stress hormones in the body. Stress hormones like cortisol raise your blood pressure, increase your heart rate and prepare your body for a fight or flight response. Prolonged stress has negative effects on your heart, as well as your entire cardiovascular system, causing unwanted side effects like weight gain. Chiropractic treatments release muscle tension and pressure on the nerves, allowing the body to relax, function more optimally, and heal properly. Laughter also helps release endorphins, our body's natural mood enhancers. Exercise does this as well. These chemicals; neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine, are our body's natural opioids, and they give us a feeling of overall balance and wellness. Chiropractic care does the same thing by releasing muscle tension and tightness around the nerve roots of our skeletal system, and by enhancing the functionality of the nerves in the body. This release of tension can help improve your mood as well as increase those feel-good chemicals in the body. Read more

  • Improve Your Life With Proper Posture
    So what is good posture? Good posture is the "neutral" position that the spine holds while standing, sitting, sleeping and walking. This position engages all the muscles that support the spine, putting equal pressure on them rather than extra pressure on only a few of them. Good posture keeps the vertebrae in line, promotes good circulation, and keeps pressure off the internal organs. Did you ever think about how sitting in a slumped position smashes your internal organs, interrupting digestion and breathing? Read more

  • Balanced Spine, Balanced Life
    friends talk about it, and so do articles online, but life balance isn't easy. Work, health, family, household chores, friends....they all seem to fall into the high priority category. It is difficult to juggle them all and still feel balance. Your body also strives for balance. Do you remember learning, maybe way back in elementary school, about homeostasis? Homeostasis is defined as the state of steady internal physical and chemical conditions maintained by living systems. It is the condition of optimal functioning within the body. Our bodies have many homeostatic "regulators" which control things like body temperature, fluid balance, concentrations of electrolytes, blood sugar and so on, even in light of changing environmental factors. We don't have to eat the exact amount of sugar each day to create the perfect balance in our bodies, we have mechanisms to do that for us. And thank goodness we do, because there's no way we could keep track of all that ourselves, n Read more
  • A Tulsa Chiropractor Talks About What To Do After a Car Accident
    Two years ago this month my wife and I were involved in a car accident. While it was quite an impact and totaled my cherished muscle car, we were very lucky to walk away with injuries that required chiropractic care and not hospitalization. Don't get me wrong, we were pretty banged up and it took a few months of treatment to get us back to normal, but we are both grateful that it wasn't much worse. Reflecting on the whole experience, I think I might have some useful information to offer anyone who has been involved in a similar incident. The first thing to do after the accident is to assess the injuries of everyone involved, including the people in the other vehicles. In our accident, the man who hit us was able to tell us he had a medical condition, which helped us know that we needed to call for emergency medical services. For emergency-ty Read more
  • 7 Chiropractor Tips to Relieve Low Back Pain While Driving
    Driving, whether for work or a fun family vacation, can be rough for someone with low back pain. Here are a few tips to helps make your next trip more comfortable: 1. Today's cars are short on head room. Be sure to adjust your seat so that you aren't leaning back with your legs straight in front of you. This position tilts the pelvis in a way that is sure to aggravate a back problem. Find a comfortable position that allows the seat bottom to support your thighs, and the seat back to hold you in an upright position. You shouldn't have to flex your neck forward to see properly. 2. Try not to slump in your seat. Slumping flattens the natural curves in yo Read more
