Neck Pain and Tension


Neck Pain and Tension

Neck pain and tension can be a difficult cycle to break. My Chiropractic approach is to adjust misalignments, release fixations, and share home care advice: ergonomics, posture (including sleep), etc., tools patients can use on their own to get relief.

6 Secrets to Strong Immune Function

     (1) Cut way back on all forms of sugar. The amount of sugar in one soft drink suppresses immune function for up to 12 hours.
     (2) Minimize high-glycemic carbs. These foods rapidly elevate your blood sugar.
     (3) Support a healthy intestinal microbiome with a diet of fresh vegetables and fruits, organic as much as possible, with plenty of prebiotic fiber (feeds the good bacteria in our intestinal tract), small amounts of healthy meats (if you choose to eat meat), and healthy fats.
     (4) Take a good-quality, high-potency daily probiotic. Up to 70% - 80% of our immune system is in our intestinal tract!
     (5) Get plenty of sleep.
     (6) Find effective ways to manage your stress.

Chronic Pelvic / Low Back Pain

Unless your feet are addressed, a treatment plan for your pelvic or low back pain may not be successful.

Yes! Medicare Covers Chiropractors

If you have a question, you can call Medicare (1-800-MEDICARE), and you will reach an actual person, who will answer your questions with patience and courtesy.

When Medicare receives your Doctor's Statement for your chiropractic care, they process it first, then they automatically send it on to your supplemental insurance for that part of processing. You don't have to do a thing!

Medicare covers chiropractic care, but currently, only for treatment to the spine. It doesn’t cover extremities, exams, or adjunct therapies. Yet. But we’re (your chiropractors) working on it.

Medicare patients are welcome in my practice. Chiropractic care is excellent support for senior's health, wellness and vitality. And the Activator method is low-force and gentle. Please call with any questions or to schedule your appointment today.
