So you have found out that you are expecting, congratulations! Here’s to first words, first steps, and of course the growing pains that come along with the labour and delivery. The most common symptoms of pregnancy that women rank among the more displeasing are morning sickness (nausea and/or vomiting), fatigue (tiredness), and pain in the back, pelvis, and sciatic nerve distribution.   Because of the release of the hormone Relaxin (produced by both the ovaries and placenta during pregnancy), the ligaments of the pelvis relax and the cervix both widens and softens.

What is the cracking sound that happens during an adjustment? –Dr. Tiffany Huggins, DC. Frequently my patients refer to their chiropractic adjustment as ‘cracking their spine’. I quickly remind them that we crack eggs, but we adjust the spine! They rebut with the simple question of why does that sound occur when we are adjusting the body using particular chiropractic techniques?     The sound occurs when an adjustment or spinal manipulation is performed using the diversified approach. The sound is called a Cavitation and it is the same noise that happens when you ‘crack your knuckles’. The dictionary definition…

Why take vitamin D during the winter? Sunshine! Many patients ask what supplements they should be taking during the winter months to help ward off common bugs, the flu, and the winter blues. While every case is different, there are a few natural vitamins and minerals that apply to almost everyone. The first is Vitamin C.

One thing my Dad (And Chiropractor) always said when we were younger (and to this day) was that if you want to achieve your goals, you need to write them down, read them, re-read them, and take the necessary steps to make them happen. Last New Year’s Day, we all sat around the dinner table enjoying the first meal together of 2014 when we began sharing our resolutions for the upcoming year. It was here we vowed to work out more, eat less, and my brother and I decided we would complete a 10 and 5K run respectively. For those…

If you have ever been to a Chiropractor, you have probably undergone the necessary paperwork followed by an in-depth chat with your doctor about your personal and family medical history and then a battery of testing including a neurological, orthopedic, and postural evaluation. At our office we then send out for any required specialized testing such as Radiographs (x-rays) so we can make sure we have all the pertinent information to give you the correct diagnosis. Once we have collected all test results, we present the patient with a Report of Findings where we will explain all of our findings, …
