Today we find more parents bringing their children to chiropractors for day-to-day health concerns we’re all familiar with: colds, sore throats, ear infections, fevers, colic, asthma, tonsillitis, allergies, bed-wetting, infections, pains, falls, stomach-aches, and the hundred and one little and big things children go through as they grow up.

Contest! Contest! Contest! We need help to name our office Mascot!!!

For the month of April we are holding a contest to name our office mascot!  You may have seen him in our window…he has been there since he started hiking and gardening last spring.  He is a pretty active guy, each month he can be found doing a new activity.  He has become quite popular over the past year so we figure that it’s only fair that he be given a name of his own. more »

What are hip flexors?

After curling this weekend I noticed that a lot of my fellow curlers were having “groin pain”. I see a fair number of people in my practice with the same issue. Most of these people think they have pulled their groin and will generally rest it and avoid any activity that causes that pain.
