Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately for our patients, I am NOT a BLACK BELT. Therefore, I only adjust ONE at a time...

In the spirit of this holiday season, I couldn't resist putting up this wonderful video. May we all always have the same heart as the gentleman seen below. Enjoy!

Sign of the times! The term "TEXT NECK" has been mentioned a lot lately. Truth is, forward head posture (usually with an accompanying "hump" in the upper back) and constant forward flexion (bending down) has been a problem long before this phrase was coined. We do most things with our head forward......eat, brush our teeth, read, study, sweep, mop, just to give a few examples. 

TIP: If being in this position is starting to give you problems, interrupt that bad posture by periodically tipping your head back and looking at the ceiling for a minute or two. 

A simple x-ray will also let us determine whether you have a normal cervical curve or not. The worse the neck posture, the more the neck tissues get stressed when placed in this "text neck" position!

To all interested individuals.....just a reminder that if you have PPO Insurance (Blue Shield, Aetna, etc.) most of you are eligible for DME's (durable medical equipment) AT NO COST TO YOU! This may include a high-quality back brace, TENS and EMS units, cervical braces, and other items deemed appropriate to relieve or control pain symptoms. Insurance companies approve these items since when used appropriately for symptomatic control, it may mean less cost for office visits. 

If interested, simply give our office a call and we can verify these benefits for you before they expire at the end of the year. If approved, it takes approximately 10-14 days to receive. (661) 942-5000

Get it.....umm.....skeleton + selfie:-). 

So, in our office we don't indiscriminately send patients out for x-rays. If there are red flags or indications that an x-ray is needed for a more in depth assessment because of concerning clinical findings, then we refer out to an imaging facility and obtain a medical radiology report and perform our own assessment of the films. 

Conversely, a well-approached examination gives us plenty of information to dictate when we DON'T need an x-ray. In such cases, we go ahead and do what we do.....spinal adjustments, massage therapy, active-release, modality therapies, therapeutic and functional exercise, etc., etc

5 individuals on this picture. We see this "de-evolving" process in our office daily. This process is most easily halted if we can identify and correct forward head posture (Anterior Head Syndrome), as seen with the second individual. Who has this? LOTS of people. It's just so common in our society that we simply don't notice it or think much of it. Every inch forward increases the weight of the head on the spine by 10 lbs! No doubt this causes increased stress on the tissues. 

Take note of how this second individual looks. Now asses your friends and family members. If you see this presentation, let them know it is correctable.
