“It is never too late to try to improve your health!” Having been a semi-professional athlete in the sports of women’s basketball and field hockey, my feet pounded over many miles of bumpy terrain, causing misalignment of my back. Stepping into a hole one day, I experienced severe knee pain, only to find out years later that my knee pain was actually being caused by a misalignment of vertebrae in my neck and lower back area.

What You Assumed About Weight Loss and Exercise May Be Wrong

Source: New York Times; September 12, 2006 A Duke University Medical Center report on the various factors that affect weight loss points to vigorous, sustained exercise as a key factor.

Treating the Bark vs. Adjusting the Cause.

Here is our Muskego Chiropractor Weekly Sticky: You walk into your Chiropractor’s office, hop on a table and point to where it hurts. But the Chiropractor adjusts a totally different part of your spine… not even close to where you feel the pain. Why is that? There’s an old saying that goes when you step on a dog’s tail, it barks out the other end. In Chiropractic, that means where you hurt (the bark) isn’t necessarily where the problem is (the tail). Many times the symptom you feel in one area is due to a remote cause. For example, someone with sciatica may feel pain down their leg, but the...
