San Clemente Chiropractor
I remember taking a biochemistry course in college where the professor pounded the idea into us that “Structure Determines Function.” He was using this to talk about biochemical processes of course. However, this same adage is applicable to our own lives in many ways. Look at your car or any mechanical device. If the structure is not correctly placed, do you think it will function as desired? The same is true of our bodies. If the structural components of our body are not how they need to be, we will not function properly.
Often a patient will describe their experience with discomfort as, “I think I slept wrong.” Sometimes we neglect just how important a good night’s rest is. When we look at the numbers, we spend a third of each day sleeping. Why then do some wake up feeling sore or completely unrested after a solid 8 hours? The answer may be your pillow or mattress.
This week I am going to cut straight to the chase. No sugar coating this one. The answer is…
At least once every:
Often after a car accident people are more concerned with the damage that has been done to their vehicle. This makes sense as cars are expensive and the damage is clearly visible. People are often attached to their car and want to do everything possible to find a shop that will replace the broken parts with quality pieces that help it to look brand new.
This is another common question that I am asked in my San Clemente chiropractic practice. Or I will hear that the patient had a previous experience with a chiropractor where they felt some soreness or discomfort after the adjustment. My goal here is to shed some light on what is happening during an adjustment and specifically the first time you receive one.
This is a question I am frequently asked by people of all age groups. I think partially it comes from the misconception that popping your fingers will give you arthritis. So I will give you some insight on what happens when you pop your fingers and why some folks do it.
This morning I found a note on my desk from the other Chiropractor I work with. One of his patients is the son-in-law of an elderly patient that I have just recently begun to treat. The note informed me that my patient, I’ll call him Steve, had been using a cane to get around for the last year. Steve went on a 3 mile hike this past week and was excited to have left his cane at home. I have only adjusted Steve twice prior to this.
