Finding Ways to Keep Your Cool

By Dr. Brent Wells

After a long day at work, you just want to get home to your family. However, sometimes the most stressful part of your day can be coming home from work. You may have a house full of children who are running around screaming and fighting with each other. Perhaps you have a family dog and he had an accident or two while you were gone or maybe he chewed on some of the furniture. Maybe your spouse is working late, leaving you to manage homework, dinner, and bedtime.

Fighting Back Against Insomnia

Do you struggle to fall asleep at night? Or do you find yourself wide awake at three in the morning staring up at the ceiling, wondering if you’ll fall back to sleep at all before your alarm goes off? If you answered “yes,” you are not alone.

How Coffee Affects Your Health

By Dr. Brent Wells


Who doesn’t love a really good cup of coffee? Alright, I suppose there are some, but I’m not one of those. Nope. I love coffee. So do a lot of people. There is even a Facebook page, a Twitter account, and an app devoted to the love of coffee. Just Google “I Love Coffee” and you’ll see. Well, the app is a game, but still--it’s about a coffee shop. For the record, I have no affiliation with any of these. I just love coffee!

Choosing the Right Lumbar Support

By Dr. Brent Wells

Back and my wife and I were newlyweds, we didn’t worry much about the furniture we bought. It was most important that our furniture be affordable. Yard sales, hand-me-downs, and budget stores were how we obtained most of our first pieces. It was a bonus if a chair happened to be comfortable. Lumbar support was not a consideration at that time, although it should have been.

Core Strength: What it is and Why it Matters

By Dr. Brent Wells

The other day, I was at the gym waiting for my wife to finish an exercise class. I waited outside the door, but kept hearing the leader instructing the students to “tighten your core!” It got me to wondering how many people in the class knew what the instructor was talking about. I know my wife knows the facts of the core (she is, after all, married to me), but I was a little concerned about the others in the class.

Chiropractic More Effective for Neck Pain Than Other Therapies

By Dr. Brent Wells

The phrase “pain in the neck” can mean one of two things. The first is in reference to an annoying or tedious person. That’s what it means when my wife tells me I’m a pain in the neck. The second meaning refers to physical suffering. My patients often tell me they have a pain in the neck, and it’s not funny.

Sprains and Strains

By Dr. Brent Wells

Over the years, I’ve had my share of strains and sprains. So have my brothers, and most of my friends. I think most people experience one or the other at least once in their lifetime—many of us have suffered from both. In speaking with my patients, I’ve found that most think a sprain and a strain are the same thing and use the terms interchangeably. They are surprised to learn that, while they are similar, a sprain and a strain are different.
