By: | Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Youth sports are a lot more competitive and demanding than they used to be. While your child will certainly develop plenty of new skills and character developments through sports, it is important to be aware of any signs of injury, distress and syndromes that come from overactivity, overuse of specific muscles, or just from flat-out exhaustion. When I was growing up, it was common for kids to play three or even four sports over the course of the year: one sport per season. Over time, however, I have gradually observed […]

You’ve probably heard the phrase “keep your head up” or “keep your chin up,” meaning to maintain high spirits in the face of something difficult and to persevere. Well, guess what? It’s backed by science: maintaining erect posture (sitting up or standing straight, chin raised, shoulders back) actually helps your body respond to stress and manage your moods.  Many studies have been performed based on the hypothesis that muscular states relate to emotions, but these studies have mostly focused on facial expressions (smiling does make you happier, by the way!).

Finally, summer is here and the warm weather came with it (thankfully!). To most of us, this means we are stepping up our workout game and working to be in better overall health for the beach or to enjoy our favorite activities like hiking, swimming, and playing outdoor sports.

Aging is inevitable, and so are some of the changes that come with it. Though you may still feel like you’re as mentally sharp as you were in your 20s and twice as wise, chances are you are noticing many of the physical changes that are difficult to counteract as we age.

Spring is here, and with it (eventually) comes freshly blossomed flowers, leafy trees and new green grass. This is what we have waited all winter for; the moment we can open our windows, hang sheets out to dry and plan our gardens for the upcoming season. However, those of us with allergies perceive all of these activities not with excitement, but with dread. Sufferers of seasonal allergies experience itchy eyes, skin irritation, runny noses and general inflammation this time of year. Whether you experience mild allergies or have a severe […]

The American College of Physicians has updated their guidelines in treating lower back pain. For the ACP to release new guidelines, this means that new studies citing hours, weeks, months and even years of research have proven past techniques less effective than originally thought, bringing new treatment options to light and to the forefront of primary care. Unsurprisingly, the new guidelines strongly discourage the use of opioids for the treatment of lower back pain. Instead, they highly recommend seeking conservative non-drug treatment through lifestyle changes, chiropractic and overall wellness. There have […]
