Happy Veterans Day! In honor of those who keep us safe here in the greatest country in the world and those who have preserved our freedom in the past, and to thank you for your service, I have decided to make a special offer for today only.
Headaches are one of the more common ailments I see in my office on a daily basis. They range from minor irritation to full blown disability. The tricky thing about working with headaches is that there are so many things that can cause a headache. By far, however, the most common cause of headaches is neck dysfunction.

You gotta love football season! The cooler weather, tailgating, the excitement of the game.

I finally did it! I got new software that allows me to keep your records digitally so that I don’t have a bunch of paper files. The advantages are great but the learning curve is killing me. It is so much easier to hand write a few sentences, that only a few select people will probably ever decipher, and call it good. Now, however, I have detailed, thorough, professional notes in typewritten print that I can pull up with the click of a mouse.
I had an interesting conversation last night. The gentleman with whom I was speaking (he may even read this) had never seen a chiropractor and was a little skeptical. His comment was that it doesn’t really seem like chiropractic heals anything; only gives temporary relief of symptoms. He was partly right!
