  • Chiropractic and your healthy lifestyle

    Kevin Brown DC, contributing writer|Feb 19, 2022

    Millions of Americans have not only found relief from back pain with chiropractic, but have also found it to be a natural drug-free approach to healthcare. The 24 independent vertebrae in your spinal column allow your body to move, bend and twist during various daily activities.

    Kevin Brown DC, contributing writer|May 8, 2021

    The shoulder joint can be a source of pain, and an injury can limit your daily activities in a significant way. Full shoulder motion is required for many activities that we perform on a daily basis. Yet many people pay little attention to shoulder health until it isn't working like it is supposed to.

  • When should I see a chiropractor?

    Kevin Brown DC, contributing writer|Mar 13, 2021

    Hi. I'm Dr. Brown, and I want to be your chiropractor. Most people come to the chiropractor when they are in pain, usually back pain, neck pain, headache or a similar symptom. That is like waiting to go to the dentist until you have a toothache. By then it is too late; you missed the chance to prevent decay and the resulting pain. After 25 years in practice I am still giving the same message. Don't wait till it hurts. Chiropractic treatment is called an adjustment. It is not called an overhaul...

  • Maintenance or repair

    Kevin Brown DC, contributing writer|Feb 27, 2021

    Most folks come to the chiropractor because they are in pain. Injuries new and old, accidents of many types, and the unknown pain that no one can figure out are the common reasons to come in. However the best use of chiropractic care is maintenance. Your car, tractor, and machinery all benefit from maintenance to prevent expensive repairs and so does your body. Whether you are looking to improve performance, reduce pain, or fix something that is broken, try chiropractic first. Here are a few...
