For example, our chiropractors have years of experience and are trained in treating car accident victims with injuries including whiplash, herniated disc, and soft tissue injuries. Depending on the severity of your injuries, we can create a developed treatment plan to help you heal from your injuries and lead you to a path of recovery.
Anyone sitting in a chair or desk for a prolonged period will likely experience tight hips. This is often due to a group of large muscles called hip flexors that attach your pelvis to your femur and can become tightened when they aren’t stretched. These muscles help you move your hips when you walk, run, bend at the waist and raise your legs. Because the hip flexor muscles are connected to the spine, they often pick up the slack if the core isn’t strong, leading to pain in your lower back and other body areas. Fortunately, some exercises are designed to stretch out these muscles and offer relief from pain or discomfort.
Here is a list of some of those stretches: https://www.today.com/health/diet-fitness/hip-flexor-stretches-rcna16322

Backpacks are a popular and practical way for students to carry out all the necessities they require throughout the school year. Children from elementary to high school have a variety of supplies on their backs, from books and athletic gear to lunch boxes.

It is no surprise that Americans like their smartphones and use them daily. In 2021, the average American spent about 4.1 hours a day on their mobile device, according to mobile analytics firm App Annie. A recent study found that looking down at a phone can load an extra 60 lbs of weight onto your neck. With hours of the day spent staring at a screen, the accumulation of additional force leads to irregular stresses on the spine and surrounding supportive soft tissues. The consequences of these habits can include pain in the neck, upper back, and shoulder, headaches, tingling, or numbness in the hands.
If your phone habits have left you with any of the symptoms above, contact us to schedule an evaluation today. The quicker the problem is addressed, the sooner your symptoms can be reversed, reducing the risk of future injuries.
Did you know that roughly half of all car crash-related fatalities occurred on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday?
According to The U.S. Department of Transportation, approximately 18,852 deaths out of 38,824 in 2020 emerged from Friday through Sunday. Sadly, it’s no surprise to see these results. It’s the weekend, so there tends to be a large volume of cars where people enjoy their day off from work by taking road trips or running errands. In addition, the weekend promises relaxation and greater freedom; unfortunately, some drivers use this freedom to indulge in dangerous behaviors. Alcohol is often present during the weekend, especially at night, leading to more drunk driving crashes, auto accident injuries from speeding, and other forms of reckless driving.
No matter the day or time, a car accident can be devasting. If you have sustained an injury after an accident, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible to ensure your health and well-being and help support any legal claim you might have. Give us a call to schedule an initial evaluation today.
It can be difficult to concentrate on your job when you have back pain.
Unfortunately, sitting or standing in one position for a typical workday can wreak havoc on your body.

Whether hitting the beach, attending a bbq, or being a tourist in your city, it’s wise to consider the impact your footwear can have on your body. The appeal of flip-flips or sandals is easy to understand when the weather turns warm. While they are cool, comfortable, and easy to put on and take off, they don’t offer foot and ankle support, cushioning, and protection against trips and falls. In addition, wearing them for an overextending period can lead to back pain and other complications.
Utilizing proper footwear is key to keeping safe while enjoying activities. However, if you are experiencing lingering and persistent back pain this summer, contact our office to schedule a consultation. Our experienced chiropractors may be able to discover the root cause of your problem and find a solution that will get you back to living pain-free. Call us today!
🛑 Stop cracking your neck! 🛑
If done incorrectly or too often, cracking your neck can lead to blood clotting, cause strained muscles, weaken your ligaments by stretching them out too much, and cause pinched nerves. Another danger is the risk of weakening or tearing your ligaments by stretching them out too much, which can lead to neck instability, and potentially increase your chance of developing arthritis. It’s best to have your neck cracked by a chiropractor to avoid complications. Chiropractic care offers a safer option to help you find relief from the underlying issue and reduce the need to crack your neck. Give us a call to schedule an appointment today.

With the arrival of summer, many Americans will be packing up their car and heading to the beach, theme parks, and other vacation destinations with their family members or friends. While road trips are fun, relaxing, and a great opportunity to spend time with loved ones, driving long distances can cause havoc on your body. Driving a car involves prolonged sitting, constrained postures, and low-frequency vibration, all of which can contribute to unwanted back pain. Fortunately, there are several things you can do to avoid or minimize the back you experience on a road trip.
Check out these simple tips to protect your back while driving: https://health.usnews.com/health-care/for-better/articles/are-road-trips-bad-for-your-spine

Our bony skeleton gives our body the structure needed to function properly while also helping protect our organs. They also store calcium, which we need to build and maintain strong bones. Because bone is a living tissue, it continually changes with fresh bones replacing old bones to maintain health and function. However, aging can take its toll on the body, and the bones are no exception. Peak bone mass usually occurs around age 30, and after that, the process of forming new bone tissues starts to slow down. This bone loss can lead to osteoporosis, a disease that increases the likelihood of breaking a bone. It's hard to control risk factors like gender, family history, or age, but certain lifestyle modifications can help slow down the decline.
Keep your bones strong by following these good habits:
✅ Eat more vegetables
✅ Consume enough protein
✅ Get enough calcium and Vitamin D
✅ Include physical activity in your daily routine
✅ Maintain a stable, healthy weight
