Healthcare Moves Toward Conservative Care Methods, Like Chiropractic Care

Healthcare Moves Toward Conservative Care Methods, Like Chiropractic Care We’re in the middle of one of the biggest drug crises in history—the opioid epidemic. Pain meds are being prescribed at an alarming rate for patients suffering from acute and chronic pain, which has opened up the gates for overuse and abuse.

There were 17,000 deaths in 2011 because of opioid prescriptions alone—this number also increased four-fold over the past two decades. Read More

The Milk Myth: How Dairy Does More Harm Than Good

The Milk Myth: How Dairy Does More Harm Than Good Remember those iconic milk ads from back in the day? They featured high-profile celebs from Michael Jordan to Dr. Phil, Batman to Beyoncé, sporting cute milk mustaches alongside that signature catchphrase—“got milk?” The campaign was huge, working its way seamlessly into pop culture. It also reinforced what our own families were telling us at the dinner table. “Milk does the body good,” or “Milk makes your bones strong.” Many people grew up sure of that. But today, as we find more and more information on lactose and dairy products, one thing’s becoming clear: milk may not be the dietary hero we once thought it was.  Read More

Chiropractic Care, a Safe and Effective Option for Treating Ear Infections

Chiropractic Care, a Safe and Effective Option for Treating Ear Infections How do swamps and mosquitoes relate to chiropractic care and ear infections?

How We Help: Ear Infections

How We Help: Ear Infections If you have kids, it's likely you know a thing or two about ear infections. In the United States, five out of six children experience an ear infection by three years old.
