THE ROLE OF CHIROPRACTIC IN HEALING

You may have heard that on Jan. 11th I crashed on my road bike and broke my right hip and right collarbone. Got surgery that night and have been improving ever since. The number one thing that has really helped me has been rest. Listening to your body tell you what it wants is very important, and allowing time to heal is key to a quicker recovery. The second thing that has helped is heat and movement. The heat encourages more blood flow to the area while movement stimulates blood flow and muscle function. The third thing was getting my spine adjusted as soon as I could, as this helped increase nerve flow to all the systems in my body; those that were suffering, like my muscles, and those with peripheral discomfort, like digestion and elimination. Having all the systems in my body working together within the healing process helps diminish the effects of the trauma more effectively, and usually, quicker. If you or someone you know who is suffering either from an acute injury or a chronic ailment, have them give me a call for a free phone consultation. Dr. Ben

It is better to sleep on things beforehand than lie awake about them afterwards. -Baltasar Gracian

HUMOR

“Would you mind telling me, doctor,” asked Bob, “how you detect a mental deficiency in somebody who appears completely normal?”

“Nothing is easier”, he replied. “You ask him a simple question that everyone should answer with no trouble. If he hesitates, that puts you on the track.”

“What sort of question?”

“Well, you might ask him, ‘Captain Cook made three trips around the world and died during one of them. Which one?”

Bob thought for a moment and then said with a nervous laugh, “You wouldn’t happen to have another example, would you? I don’t know much about history.”
