"Perhaps the earth can teach us, as when everything seems dead and later proves to be alive."  ~  Pablo Neruda
 
Spring brings with it a sense of renewal.  The foliage gets dressed in flirtatious miniskirts of emerald tones as jeweled blossoms yawn open.  The air is fertile with golden pollen - Bless you! - and everything seems alive again after the frigid gray deadness of winter.
 
As we welcome spring with rain-soaked arms, let us turn our attention to the renewal of our personal turns of season.  It is always a good idea to renew our commitment to wholeness and optimal health.
 
Let the budding fruit trees remind you of your own fragile growth and like those tiny buds, your growth is bursting with potential.  Each apple that grows has within it a limitless number of orchards.  So. Do. You.

Blueberries of health?
Grapefruit of kindness?
Broccoli of peace?

Hi, my name is Emily and I am the new Chiroptractic Assistant at Fayette Chiropractic Center.  I've been working in the medical field for about 5 years now.  What I enjoy most about being involved in this field is watching patients achieve their goals and helping them feel better in the process.  I just recently started doing the Red Light Therapy with Dr. Katz and immediately after, I could see the difference.  I look forward to seeing more results in the near future for myself and also to help patients on their journey.

Happy Mother's Day

See the source imageSee the source image

Anna Marie Jarvis (May 1, 1864 – November 24, 1948) was the founder of the Mother's Day holiday in the United States. Her mother had frequently expressed a desire for the establishment of such a holiday, and after her mother's death, Jarvis led the movement for the commemoration. However, as the years passed, Jarvis grew disenchanted with the growing commercialization of the observation (she herself did not profit from the day) and even attempted to have Mother's Day rescinded. She died in a sanitarium, her medical bills paid by people in the floral and greeting card industries.

On May 10, 1908, three years after her mother's death, Jarvis held a memorial ceremony to honor her mother and all mothers at Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church, today the International Mother's Day, in Grafton, West Virginia, marking the first official observance of Mother's Day. The International Mother's Day Shrine has been a designated National Historic Landmark since October 5, 1992.

Although Jarvis did not attend this service, she sent a telegram that described the significance of the day as well as five hundred white carnations for all who attended the service. As she spoke in Philadelphia at the Wanamaker's Store Auditorium, she moved her audience with the power of her speech.

Pain In The Text Neck

Spending too much time texting?  Hooked on social media?  Have you shifted from watching movies on a TV to watching them on your shiny new tablet?  With these new habits and activities come new stresses on the body.  "Text Neck" is the not so old term used to refer to pain and irritation to the neck and upper back as one looks down at their electronic device over extended periods of time.  This poor posture with the head in the down position causes irritation and damage to the cervical spine (neck) and upper thoracic spine (upper back).  Muscles and ligaments of the neck and upper back as well as the joints of the spine are all vulnerable, resulting in pain and stiffness.  Even the nerves exiting the spine in the neck and upper back areas can become irritated, resulting in local or radiating pain into the arms.  So what to do you ask?  The first step is raising all devices so they're at eye level and avoid looking down for extended periods of time where your chin is approaching your chest.  Also, limit your time on electronic devices and ensure that while in use, you take frequent breaks every 20-30 minutes.  If you’re at the point where you are noticing pain and stiffness during or after use, there is help.  Your local doctor of chiropractic is a spinal expert and can accurately evaluate and care for a wide variety of spinal and soft tissue conditions, including text neck.  Chiropractors utilize a number of safe and natural treatments focused on restoring motion and balance back to the spine and supporting soft tissues, eliminating the associated pain.  If you believe you might be suffering from text neck or another spinal/soft tissue disorder, call your local chiropractor today for a non-obligation evaluation today!

Walking Away Back Pain

European researchers have supporting evidence that moderate physical activity is beneficial for many people with acute low back pain. In a recent study, researchers found back pain sufferers had a reduction in their level of back pain after 10-15 minutes of treadmill walking at a self-selected speed. A word or caution: Those suffering from back pain should always seek the advise of their licensed chiropractor or other health care professional prior to initiating any physical activity when pain is present. Only a licensed health care provider can determine if physical activity is safe and/or appropriate for your particular condition.

What’s With The “Pop”?

If you've been to a chiropractor in the past, you may have noticed that your chiropractic procedure was associated with a popping sound. This sound is actually quite normal and is created by the negative pressure within the joint resulting in the release of nitrogen gas. In fact, this is what occurs when cracking your knuckles. With certain chiropractic procedures delivered by licensed doctors of chiropractic, this noise is completely normal. However, there are many times when the popping sound isn't heard. New research performed to evaluate neck pain and the presence of an audible "pop" heard immediately following the chiropractic procedure indicates the lack of an audible "pop" does not necessarily contribute to the reduction of pain or overall effect on the nervous system. In other words, that audible "pop" is not required to get great results!
