It’s pretty much common knowledge that chiropractic is effective for various forms of low back pain, neck discomfort, and headaches.  We see these conditions all the time.  The literature supports what we do, and we are fairly adept at explaining how it all works.  But there are some conditions that chiropractic treatment ends up benefiting without our even setting out to do so — and explaining these, well, often leaves us speechless.   (more…)

10% Dead

Ten percent dead?  What?  Now before you stop reading, hear me out.  It’s interesting if you stop to think about it:  dead or alive.  Pretty much an all or none proposition.  Right?  Well, maybe not.  What about instead of being completely alive, you were partially dead?  What would that feel like?  What might some of your symptoms be? While we all can understand the concept of being alive, and  all have a firm grasp on the concept of being dead, the notion of  being somewhere in between might be a new one for us.
