Am I at a Dead End?

As a chiropractor I often see new patients who “have tried everything” already, even chiropractic, and it has not worked. Most have already spent a great deal of time and money seeing physical therapists, personal trainers, acupuncturists, massage therapists…the list goes on and on. They have seen some of the most talented doctors and practitioners […]

Your Child’s Posture

Your child?s posture changes dramatically when developing from a newborn to toddler, adolescent to adult. Their body gains over one metre in height, their body weight gain is over twenty times, and the spinal column doubles in length! The infant’s head represents about 80% of its body weight while an adult’s head is about 8.6% […]

What Posture Says about Your Health

Your posture is literally how you balance your head over your shoulders over the pelvis, down through the knees and your ankles.
