Chiropractic Christmas

Chiropractic Christmas 2013

T’was the day before Christmas,
but there was no cheer.
No jingle bells jingled, no sound of reindeer.
The word had got out that Santa was sick.
There’d be no friendly visit from jolly St. Nick.

The people were sad; no gaiety sounded.
For Christmas had come,
but Santa was grounded.
He walked down the street,
but what should he see
On a small sign was printed, Craig Shapiro, DC

Now Santa was not one to like a new tactic,
But all else had failed, so he’d try Chiropractic.

He entered the office and saw at a glance

Have you been in an auto accident?

If you've been involved in an accident, seeing a Doctor of Chiropractic to ensure proper healing is essential...

Whiplash injury to the neck, or cervical sprain/strain, is by far the most common injury that results from a car accident.

Sprains and strains are referred to as soft tissue injuries (soft tissue includes muscles, tendons, and ligaments). Chiropractors are specialists in treating these kinds of injuries.

Soft tissue injuries, for the most part are invisible on x-rays and often
overlooked.

Desktop Ergonomic Evaluation

Ergonomics literally means the study of work. In the modern work environment, we can employ ergonomic evaluation to help design workspace and work process to minimize the possibility of  workers getting injured. If you perform any manual task that is repeated many times per day, ergonomic evaluation may help make your job easier and safer. For workers who use a computer more than 1 hour per day, proper configuration of your desk, chair, and computer is essential to avoid a repetitive strain injury.

7 Simple Steps to Better Health

1)Think Positive 

To be healthy…think healthy.  Your mind gives you control to think anything you want.  If you want to be healthy, think healthy thoughts.  “I feel great today!”  

2)Drink Water  

Drink more water!  This is the most important and easiest step you can do to improve your overall health.  One medical doctor wrote a book consisting of 180 pages on the benefits of water…180 pages!  Since your body is about 70% water, you need to constantly replenish your cells, tissues, and organs with more water.

Sugar, BAD!

Here are ten reasons to avoid refined (white) sugar:

1. Sugar contributes to tooth decay because it decreases the effectiveness of a particular type of white blood cell that “eats”  harmful bacteria.

2. Sugar causes the body to release more adrenalin, which may explain hyperactivity in young children.

3. Calcium loss in urine occurs when a person consumes a soft drink containing sugar.

4. Ingesting sugar makes the pancreas work harder to produce insulin. Diabetes results when the overworked pancreas can no longer eliminate sugar from the blood stream.

5.       Create a weekly meal plan.

7.       Purge as much unneeded clutter as possible.

What’s the best treatment for neck pain?

Seeing a chiropractor or engaging in light exercise relieves neck pain more effectively than relying on pain medication, new research shows.

The new study is one of the few head-to-head comparisons of various treatments for neck pain, a problem that affects three quarters of Americans at some point in their lives but has no proven, first-line treatment. While many people seek out spinal manipulation by chiropractors, the evidence supporting its usefulness has been limited at best.

But the new research,
