Every once in a while someone will say "My brother/husband/friend/neighbor wants to come and see you but doesn't want to have x-rays."  This person will either choose not to see a chiropractor period or see someone who chooses to see patients without x-rays. (more…)

A patient of mine came in last night and was wearing obvious workout attire to his appointment.  This was nothing new.  He is a very avid outdoor enthusiast and has always been in great shape.  I asked him if he was heading to the gym after his visit.  He nodded and with some disappointment in his voice said “but I just drove by the gym on my way here and the parking lot is PACKED because of all the 'New Year’s crowd'.  But it will die down soon enough.”
New Year’s resolutions can be a great way to kickstart some positive change in your life.  Whether that change makes you healthier, happier, or more productive, this  can be a good thing.  But why do most people fail?  Why do people give up on their goals?  The answers are many but I’m going to share some tips based on what I have seen with patients in my chiropractic practice.  Let's look at some common pitfalls and what you can do to avoid them.

Norton Shores Michigan Chiropractor - When new patients (or guests of our current patients) see our chiropractic treatments for the first time, they are usually blown away.  They expected to see something closer to all star wrestling, or maybe even MMA.  Instead, the snapping and cracking is replaced by gentle adjustments performed via precision machines.  This is because we offer the Atlas Orthogonal and Activator Methods chiropractic techniques.  Most people say that they’ve never seen anything like this before and that it must be “something new.”  In a way, they are right.  Compared to traditional chiropractic manipulation (which is over 117 years old) or pre-chiropractic manipulation (which has been around since the Middle Ages) our methods are quite new.
