Chiropractic and KST

Chiropractic is a philosophy and healing art concerned with normalizing the condition of the nervous system by removing nerve flow blockages and disruptions caused by misplaced vertebra in the spine or any other joint in the body. Chiropractic may be used for treatment not only of the neck pain and back pain, but for prevention of disease and enhancement of our body’s natural, inborn ability to heal itself.

Back pain, neck pain, pain in the knee and shoulder, carpal tunnel syndrome – these are common and sometimes debilitating conditions that may arise from car accidents, sport or any kind of injury, muscle overuse, incorrect posture and negative thinking, or long standing stress situations .

Don’t Let Osteoporosis Sneak Up On You

Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is the most common type of bone disease. Osteoporosis occurs when the body fails to form enough new bone, when too much old bone is reabsorbed by the body, or both.

Researchers estimate that about 1 out of 5 American women over the age of 50 have osteoporosis. About half of all women over the age of 50 will have a fracture of the hip, wrist, or vertebra (bones of the spine).

Correcting the problem means long term relief!  Headaches and migraines can develop from many causes, therefore seeing a professional chiropractor can help you determine the cause, and treat the problem.

St. Paul in the Summer: Nutrition

I am very excited to have the chance to write about this topic because as a chiropractor, I naturally enjoy the natural choice and I have spent a large portion of my education learning about how to not only ensure proper alignment of the spine and a fantastically functioning nervous system, I have also found passion at looking at how a person’s diet affects their health.   Summer is the perfect time of year for great eating!

It is hard to know what is best, especially when it comes to nutrition…on a daily basis, we see commercials for Flintstone vitamins, fortified cereal and even soda like Diet Coke Plus and 7up Plus that boast to have 10-15% of your daily B and E vitamin needs.  Vitamins are essential for a good diet, yet the choices we make in how to get them is the MOST important part of our diets and our health.
