When I was 9 years old (2 years before my paper route 🗞️ would make me flush with cash) Dad sent me to the store. 🏪

When I got home, he asked me for the change except there was one problem. 😐

I spent the rest of it on comic books. Whoops! 🤭

So, I don’t know why they can’t pull off a good Fantastic Four movie 🎥 but, I do know there are 4 essentials of life.

And, that when these 4 life essentials are maintained, they will maximize 🏆 your health potential.

Hint, it’s the same four things we need in order to be alive.

Food 🍔

Water 🌊

and Oxygen 🏃‍♀️

How long can we live without Food? 4 to 8 Weeks? 📅

How long can we live without Water? Maybe 3 days? 🌅

How long can we live without Oxygen? 5 minutes? ⏱️

Ok, so how long can we live without a nerve impulse? 🔌

Good question! It’s kind of the definition of life 🧬 isn’t it?

Where does health come from, anyway? 🤷

Can it be found in a pill 💊 or at the end of a scalpel?

Let’s consider for a moment… if I move my hand ✋ what controls that?

Any guesses?

My brain 🧠 of course!

But it doesn’t do it by satellite 🛰️ it does it by cable! 🔌

My brain 🖥️ generates life and energy and transmits it through my brainstem, down my spinal cord to my peripheral nervous system.

And, my nervous system directly and indirectly controls and coordinates 🚦 the function of every cell, tissue, and organ of my body.

In order to be healthy, does it make sense that pathway should be clear?

I agree! 👍

So, if I were to cut 🔪 my arm, what happens?

It would heal 🩹 in a week or two.

What happens if I cut a nerve? 🤔

It might never come back, so Mother Nature 🌬️ is really smart, like Jeopardy smart.

Our central nervous system, our brain 🧠 and spinal cord are totally encased in bone for protection.

Now, the bones 🦴 of our spine are moveable, so we can bend and move and stretch.

And sometimes, because of traumas 🤕 (accident, slip and fall etc.) or microtraumas (repetitive stress injury) these bones can fall into less than ideal movement patterns.

Which can affect the nerves.

Did you know that studies have shown that pressure the equivalent to the weight of a dime 🪙 on a nerve can affect the function of that nerve by 60%?

If only there were a profession that specialized in that sort of thing! 😎

I saw a book 📖 for sale titled “Solve 50% of all of Your Problems”

So, I bought 2! 🤣

Anyway… the problem with problems is they usually go on silently 🤫 at first.

Just like driving a car 🚗 without changing the oil, at first everything is fine.

 Eventually the check engine light 🚨 comes on.

What if I just covered that up with a piece of tape. 🤷‍♀️

The problem becomes more of a problem, until one day…

The engine ⚙️ seizes.

Now I have a crisis 🆘 and in order to solve my crisis, I go to Kings Auto Mall and get a brand-new engine installed.

What I should do now, is the same thing I should have been doing all along, right ⁉️

Maintenance. 😎

I need to maintain 🧑‍🔧 the health of my car engine.

And my marriage. ⚭

And my heart health. 💓

And my Spine. 🦸‍♂️

Anything I use and value needs to be maintained on a regular basis to keep it tip top. 🥇

Does that make sense? 👍

When I was 5 years old 👦 we moved to our house in Edmonton and our next door neighbors were an old Polish couple.

Even older was Sophie 👵, the wife’s mother.

And every day Sophie would tie her babushka on her head and go walk 🚶‍♀️ around the neighborhood.

At age 11, I’d say hi to Sophie as I whizzed by on my bike. 🚴‍♂️

I would drive by her on my way to cook at Bonanza 🥩 when I was 17.

I went away to college 🎓 and would come home to visit.

Guess 😏 who was still walking around the neighborhood.

Success leaves clues. 🗝️

Did you know that walking 30 minutes per day can significantly reduce your risk of heart 🫀 disease, High blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and some cancers? 🙋‍♀️

Just ask Sophie!

Staying healthy as you age isn't just about adding more years to your life. It's also about adding more life to your years! It’s more than a cliché, really. Regular, daily physical activity and exercise gives your body the ingredient it requires to express health.

Ensuring that you maintain a high quality of life as you get older, reducing aches and pains, and improving your mental attitude.

Time waits for no man but getting older doesn't mean that have to be inactive.

I read, just this last week, that the world record 100m race is 15.08 seconds.

Let that sink in.

You have more potential inside you than you think.

 Weakness and poor balance are the result of inactivity, not age.

Fortunately, there are plenty of activities that you can take part in to hold off slowing down as you go on in life.

Lifting Weights

Activity number one in keeping your body healthy and functioning is lifting weights.

Not to worry, you don't have to hulk out and lift hundreds of pounds in order to benefit from lifting weights.

Studies have shown that it’s never too late, even people in their 90’s have the ability to significantly increase their strength.  

Light to moderate weight training also increases your bone density, and helps you maintain a healthy body weight.

Even better news, researchers have also discovered that weight training has the potential to help get rid of nagging pains that you might have in lower back, shoulders, or knees.

Light Cardio

Activity number two in keeping you body healthy and functioning is light cardio:

I know what you’re thinking, I we mean sprints and the Flying Pig, forget it, right?

Being a cardio master isn’t necessary to improve your cardiovascular health.

In fact, you don't even have to jog.

There are plenty of ways to get a solid cardiovascular workout without hurting your joints or wearing you out for the next three days.

My favorite pick is just walking at 3 miles per hour, 5 days per week.

Or better yet, split that 30 minutes into 10 minutes 3 times per day.

Give it a week, and how you feel might surprise you!

Yoga

Activity number three in keeping you body healthy and functioning is Yoga.

Even people who are in the prime of their lives will find that yoga produces a unique combination of flexibility, strength, and balance.

If you go ahead and google search DDP Yoga, there are hundreds if not thousands of testimonials of it changing peoples lives.

DDP Yoga is basically yoga for normal people or beat up has-beens (namely your faithful author)

Increasing your strength and flexibility in the comfort and privacy of your living room, what a concept!

You Don't Have to Hurt More

Getting Older Doesn't Mean Slowing Down. Part 5

Getting older does not mean that your body has to hurt more.

If you are looking for strategies to become more active, let us know.

As always, we are dedicated to helping you find ways to enjoy doing the things that you love, with the people you love for years to come.

Healthy vibrant and pain-free. You deserve it!

It's another week folks, so this Cincinnati Chiropractor has more for you!

Being healthy doesn't mean that you need to spend 20 hours each week in the gym.

Even little things like standing at work, a little walking, a little mobility work can make a big improvement in your overall health.

On the other hand, a sedentary lifestyle is a significant factor in many chronic diseases, as well as spinal aches and pains.

Do you drive to work and then spend your day on the computer?

You may not realize that you have been spending 8, 10, or even more long hours each day sitting down.

That much sitting can have a negative impact on your back, legs, neck, and even your mind.

This week you’ll learn small changes in your daily habits that can make a huge difference in your health and back pain.


Standing Desks and Back Pain, Cincinnati

Standing desks have become more and more popular over the last 20 years for good reason.

Making a habit to stand up from your desk every 30 minutes, has been shown to reduce problems in your low back and has also been linked to shoulder issues.

In fact one study showed that chronic LBP in the workplace might be improved by the introduction of seated to standing workstations in an office environment. So, less sitting and more standing!

What is Foam Rolling?

Foam rolling can improve the mobility of your mid-back (thoracic spine), and  can reduce your low back pain, improve your posture, & even decrease your likelihood of experiencing shoulder issues.

Foam rolling affects a myofascial release on the muscles surrounding and supporting your spine by increasing the circulation and reducing the adhesions in your muscle tissues.

What DO I Need to Be Healthy?

What is the minimum amount of exercise your body requires in order to express heath?

The fast and simple answer is walking for 30 minutes, 5 days a week.

Sounds to simple to be effective, right? Well read on...

This can lower your risk of heart disease by 50%, lower your blood pressure, and decrease your chances of developing type 2 diabetes by as much as 90%!.

Better yet, split it up and walk for 10 minutes 3x a day.

I know, it doesn’t sound like much, but If you try this for one week I guarantee, you will feel a huge difference in your health and wellbeing.

I know I did.

Start Small for a Big Result

As we’ve discussed this week, a few small changes in your activity level can make a huge difference, so start by taking small daily steps in the right direction.

If you feel "tight" or have pain in your back, let us know. You may have restricted motion in your spine, and we would be happy to help you improve your mobility.

Helping you, help yourself towards better health, see you next week!

Cincinnati chiropractor discusses one of the biggest causes of confusion - What is the Best Anti Inflammatory?

“Doc, I’m Hurting should I use heat or ice for my pain?"

That's a great question…

Because.... guess what? Everyone wants to use heat!

We hear it all the time

"Y’know Doc when it’s hurting I take a hot shower or I lay on a heating pad."

The problem is, what that is doing is bringing blood to the area.

That’s called vaso-dialation, the blood vessels open up, And that causes more swelling,or inflammation…………
That’s the worst thing you can do because even if it feels good in the short term... you can wake up the next day and barely be able to move.

Because, since you brought all this blood to the affected area it causes swelling,it causes inflammation. 

Now pay attention to this next sentence.

Now pay attention to this next sentence

A nerve doesn’t feel any pain unless its inflamed

Ok, Let that sink in... 

Ice on the other hand is natures best anti-inflammatory BECAUSE is does the opposite of heat….
It shuts down blood flow, reducing swelling and inflammation AND as a side bonus, it also numbs the pain.

Home Instructions

At home you can apply an ice pack wrapped in a towel to the affected area. Do not apply a frozen item directly to the skin (you don’t want to freezer burn yourself).


Apply cold as soon as possible to an injury and use it for just short periods of time, several times a day, usually 20 minutes per session works best.

Ice is inexpensive, simple, easy and it really helps.
