Back pain seems to be a way of life for a lot of people. Over 80% of people will suffer with back pain at some point in their life and mostly this is preventable.

In this video I share with you 2 stretches that you can do on a daily basis that will help decrease the muscle imbalances in your low back. As always, if you feel the need for further evaluation, call my office at 417.598.0080 and we will take great care of you.

What's in your Hand Sanitizer?!

You have probably used more hand sanitizer in the past few months than you have in your entire life... We are on heightened alert for viruses lately. It turns out that the advice to make sure you are keeping your hands clean and pay a bit of extra attention to cleaning things around the house is probably welcome advice for most people. BUT... Could we be going overboard? As I write this, there are 150 hand sanitizers on the FDA list to be avoided. Wow! Is this a situation where the "cure" is worse than the problem? I'm not sure, but I do know that it has caused me to step back and look at what is going on my hands and those of my kids. Schools are using hand sanitizer at every turn. I actual

Chiropractic Adjustment for Knee Pain

This is part 2 of 2 of me treating Dr. Jeni for knee pain. You can see part One HERE. Knee pain, especially knee pain that is not caused by trauma is frequently made worse by poor hip and ankle mechanics. If your hip is not moving properly, an abnormal strain pattern will form traveling down your thigh and into your knee. Over time, the abnormal strain that is put on the knee can cause pain and possibly even arthritis. Chiropractic adjustments to the hip, low back and knee can help to correct the mechanical dysfunction and relieve the pain.

Why Would You FAST for 3 DAYS?

Today's blog is about fasting. Particularly bone broth or partial fasting for a period of 3 days. This involves a three day period of time where the only thing other than water that is consumed is bone broth. Typically 24-48 Ounces of broth per day. Bone Broth fasting is considered a “partial fast” where some calories are consumed, however, they are very minimal compared to a regular diet. For example, one cup of bone broth contains approximately 40 calories, so drinking 32 oz. of broth in a day would yield 160 calories. Why in the world would someone do this? In short, this is a very restorative, healing thing to do. I recommend this for patients with suspected food sensitivities, digestive
