TONIGHT we are hosting our Facebook Live Class – Block Your Back at 7pm Central time, for 1.5 hours!
This class is considered to be an advanced class. In Block Therapy, we never start blocking the back as weage in a forward, rotational direction. Working the front and sides of the body is first required to release the grips holding the body out of alignment. If you Block Your Back without having released the front – you are adding more tension to an already tense area.
Having said that, for those who practice Block Therapy, this class will feel amazing. It will help to lengthen the core and get to those irritating spots that we all feel at times – for some – all the time.
So get ready and have some pillows for support. Like our Facebook #LinkInBio to get notified when we go Live!
HOW TO STRENGTHEN YOUR (HUP FLEXORS) PSOAS IN 30 SECONDS by @mindandflex
This simple technique reduces lower back pain, pelvic imbalance and can assist with leg length anomalies if there had been the unilateral weakness of the Psoas group.
Sitting can cause the psoas to become round like a banana so that when you stand, it pulls on your back and makes you more prone to pain and injury. On top of that, weakness in the psoas can cause a variety of knee issues, because secondary hip flexors will have to compensate, which can cause pain.
Here is how to strengthen your Psoas:
1. Test your Psoas strength on both sides
2. Activate your Psoas, by gently rubbing your belly around belly button for 30 seconds
3. Re-Test on both sides
4. You should see a massive increase in strength. If still weak, repeat the whole sequence
How is your hip flexors? How did you find this little trick? If someone you know would be interested in this, then send them here 🙏💥⬇️

MUSCLE SPASM PHARMACEUTICAL VS NUTRACEUTICAL
MUSCLE RELAXERS TYPICALLY PRESCRIBED BY YOUR M.D.
Methocarbamol (Robaxin). ...
Cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril). ...
Carisoprodol (Soma) has an abuse potential so should not be used if there is a history of substance abuse. ...
Metaxalone (Skelaxin). ...
Tizanidine (Zanaflex). ...
Chlorzoxazone (Lorzone). Most patients can barely tolerate muscle relaxers with side effects of severe drowsiness and GI upset, which is why some alternative natural supplements are recommended below... NATURAL REMEDIES:
- Magnesium (through Epsom salt bath or oral or topical intake)
- Chamomile - Capsaicin (from cayenne pepper, usually found in a topical cream)
- Cherry juice - Turmeric at 1-2 grams as tolerated to bring down inflammation - and of course MOVE! the new science and latest research recommends against bedrest as previously thought and rather light activity and stretching to promote blood flow and recovery.
When it comes to your business, are you running a blue cow practice or a brown cow practice?
If you're being a blue cow, you're optimistic, full of passion, enthusiasm and driven by a need to "leave the field". If you're being a brown cow, you're one who tends to complain a lot. You're very cynical, and you blame others.
Don't be a brown cow. Don't sit there and chew the grass as you settle with whatever life throws at you. Don't blame the people around you. If there's a mistake, 9.5 times out of 10, it's the fault of your systems. So blame the system... then make it better!
Keep this in mind: People will do an amazing job if given the right tools, empowered with the right systems.
If this sounds like something like you need help with, contact us today. We can help you be more Blue! :)
Chiropractic work can be beneficial to people suffering from a wide range of problems. But occasionally, things can and do go wrong. What began as a simple back adjustment can turn into a chiropractic injury. Chiropractic malpractice cases are fairly unusual, but when they occur the consequences can be very serious.

Having good posture delivers increased energy, better breathing, improved circulation, and less wear and tear on your joints.
Maintaining the spine’s natural curves is key to having good posture. If your spine is not properly aligned, your muscles and ligaments have to work harder to keep you upright and this can cause pain.
Slouching also puts pressure on your lungs and stomach. This can affect breathing and digestion, as well as blood flow.

EVER GET THAT NAGGING UPPER MID BACK PAIN?
Your rhomboid is a deeper muscle of the back, that can be seen on the left👉🏼
🔥When your rhomboids contain trigger points, you might feel pain at the inner side of your shoulder blade or between them
🔥 the trigger points can be found within the muscle bellies. You may feel a dull and nagging ache in the respective area if your rhomboid muscles contain trigger points
🔥 You may feel pain at rest, when you lay down on the affected side, reaching out for something like a cup from the shelf or sitting all day at the computer
🔥Rhomboid trigger points may be often mistaken for overlying or superficial muscle triggerpoints as seen on the right👉🏼
Something to consider...When it comes to your wallet, size matters. Carrying a big, fat wad of cash in your pocket can mean major trouble for your back.
Sitting on a pile of cards, bills, and coins could put stress on your hip joint and lower back causing low back pain and even sciatica symptoms. Stuffing a wallet in your back pocket also tilts your pelvis to one side, which puts more stress on your spine.
The bigger your wallet, the more lopsided you’re forced to sit—and the achier you’ll end up!
So remember: Take your wallet out of your pants when you sit down or drive!
😃Another day comes and goes. How did you feel about your day? Was it great? Was it Almost as good as you would have hoped for? No matter how the day went, you can always set a time for yourself to reflect for tomorrow. Relax and Enjoy your time off, the grind is always there. 😃👍🏼
Some say we are miracle workers. The deaf hear, those who could barely walk suddenly have feeling, and for those who have gone to every other doctor and still haven’t found a solution suddenly show up in our practices and not only get better, but thrive ———- It’s Not a Miracle—- It’s called Chiropractic!
Healing comes from above, down and inside out!
Chiropractic adjustments work by helping to place your body in the proper position that then allows the body to heal itself. 🙌🏼One of the key focuses of chiropractic care is realigning the spine and thereby reducing pressure placed on sensitive nerves, which can contribute to dysfunction of the central nervous system.

💥💥My guy dropping knowledge bombs. As Athletic Weightlifters and Crossfitters we tend to favor extension in our spines through most tasks/activities. The brain wants variety and NEEDS flexion. Through training cycles, try to ensure you’re getting enough flexion in the spine or you’ll be neglecting your best potential performance.

I had a client come in, with this spine, saying she feels like she “needs to climb a coconut tree”. I LOVED that analogy and this I think clearly shows why she felt that way.
Spines stuck, and I mean stuck, in an extended position, increasing lumbar lordosis and sacral nutation, have to more than “posteriorly tilt the pelvis” to fix it. If she flexed forward to reach towards her toes and x-rayed that spine again, it’s very doubtful the anterior aspect of those lowest lumbar vertebrae would show much closing of that joint space. They have to think different, breath different and move different in order to be successful. Novelty isn’t just tchotchke....
Here is a quick fact for the day! According to the center of disease control:
🚰Water helps your body:
1. Keep your temperature normal🌡️
2. Lubricate and cushion joints🏄
3. Protect your spinal cord and other sensitive tissues
4. Get rid of wastes through urination, perspiration, and bowel movements
2 of 4 things mentioned from their website are DIRECTLY associated with the #spine and joint health. Not to mention removing water such as inflammatory agents that cause extra stress to your body!
Here's my equation for a easy way to figure out how much to aim for:
Your body weight ÷ 2 = 1/2 body weight and concert to oz of .
Example 200 lbs ➗ 2 = 100 (oz of H20)💦 Not getting close to what you should be? Don't sweat it!😓 Set as goal where you want to be and start from there. Tip❕ Drinking more of your water💧 in the AM, hours will get you on the right path and make the rest of your day nice and fluid! 🚽 ( One of the side effects of being #healthy ) 🏄Tag a friend and help them catch the wave! 🌊
