Top Ten Blogs of 2018


Having a friend crack your back may provide some temporary relief, but it won’t fix the underlying issue causing pain and can result in injury.

Years ago, we built our wellness blog on the idea that we can connect to our patients and the general public outside the clinic walls by providing stories about our doctors and patients and advice on ways to achieve the “Feel Better. Live Better.” lifestyle we promote. We love sharing stories about patients of all ages who have seen a change in their life since visiting. Even more, we love being able to provide valuable information and insights on how they can continue that feeling each day. Here are our top ten posts from 2018! It looks like our doctors got a lot of great attention this year!

1. Can a Chiropractic Adjustment Help Clear Your Sinuses?

One of the lesser known treatments is adjustments focused on relieving sinus pressure from sickness or allergies. While many people turn to cold or allergy medication to relieve the symptoms, a chiropractic adjustment of specific bones in the face, neck, and back could provide relief to the cause, and in turn the symptoms.
