Maybe You Should Rethink that Daily Aspirin.

More than half of middle age and older adults are taking an aspirin a day to prevent heart attack or stroke. Well many shouldn’t be, the food and drug administration only recommend using the drug for people who have already had an event or are at extremely high risk.
So before you pop that daily pill find out if the risks outweigh the benefits.

How Often Should You Get Adjusted?

There are a lot of people out there with chronic low back pain. The Journal Spine published a study recently that indicates that chiropractic adjusting reduces pain and disability in the short term, but after nine months without care, the pain had returned almost to pre-treatment levels.

The great news is that when patients combined an intensive treatment period with maintenance treatment [here, twice a month] they not only didn’t get worse again, they saw even more improvement in their pain and disability scores.

If you suffer from low back pain, this study offers one more reason to take advantage of our Wellness program!
