Essential Function of the Pelvis

     Our pelvis, commonly called the “pelvic girdle,” is the bio-mechanical foundation for our whole body. Everything above and below depends on the stability of the pelvis.
     If your pelvis becomes distorted, due to a fall, a sudden twist or jolt, or just due to accumulated stresses, then it becomes unlevel. An unlevel foundation is an unstable foundation. This can reverberate downward and affect your lower extremities, or upward and affect your chest and neck. 
     As an Activator Chiropractor, I specialize in full-body balancing, including careful attention to the pelvis. This helps my patients’ adjustments to be more effective and more long-lasting.

Golfer's Elbow

     Pain and tenderness near the inside of the elbow may be inflammation of the tendon that attaches the wrist flexor muscles in the forearm (the muscles that bend your hand downward). 
     Called "golfer’s elbow" because it's common in golf players, it is due to overuse / repetitive motion. The muscles should be massaged, cooled with ice, and rested, and the tendon has to be protected so it can heal. 
     As an ACTIVATOR Chiropractor, I find golfer’s elbow is associated with particular misalignments of the bones in the forearm. Correcting these misalignments is an essential part of my treatment plan.

Medicare for Chiropractic Patients

     Medicare patients are welcome in my office. Although the annual deductible for Medicare has increased slightly, to $183, for 2017, it is still comparatively low.
     I enjoy serving Medicare patients in my practice. My low-force Activator Method is especially suitable for elders because it is gentle, comfortable, and safe.

Choosing Seafood That Supports Healthy Oceans

“Many of the fish we enjoy are in trouble due to destructive fishing & farming practices,” says the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s SEAFOOD WATCH.  They recommend asking your favorite restaurants & businesses, “Do you serve (sell) sustainable seafood?” to let them know you want ocean-friendly seafood.
