Adjusting Infants

Adjusting Infants

Baby Health, Health
Many people let fear take over when they think of adjusting a new born baby. These are the same people that would never question getting adjusted after a car accident, or slipping and falling on the ice. I like to ask these people, what is the most traumatic thing that you can think of that would happen to your body? How often do you squeeze through an opening the size of your head? After standing on your head for a week or more? Giving birth and being born are both events that will alter your body. Getting checked by a chiropractor is the best thing you can do, and do it as quickly as you would after getting into a car accident. Adjusting newborn infants is not the same process…

Dr Carr continues takes many continuing education courses each year, these are a few of the techniques of care that he may use when giving you an adjustment. The Palmer Method Today, the chiropractic field is so widespread and accepted as a valid treatment that it may be hard to believe that chiropractic care was not even brought into the American mainstream until the late nineteenth century. This occurred when Doctor Daniel David Palmer set up the first-ever chiropractic practice, thus establishing the field. It was Dr. D. D. Palmer’s son, B. J. Palmer, who formulated the Palmer Method that was first taught in the Palmer School of Chiropractic (also established by D. D. Palmer), and that is still widely used today.

Attitude and your Health

Attitude and your Health

Exercise, Health, Medicine
Your attitude determines your altitude. “Adopting the right attitude can convert a negative stress into a positive one” –Dr. Hans Selye.  You are, and you draw to yourself, your most dominant thoughts (the law of the Harvest/Attraction). What are you thinking and doing that bring events and people into your life? What lessons do you need to learn so you can move on? How can you de-stress? My Suggestions: 1. Pray/Meditate. Be at peace with yourself for at least 5 minutes per day. 2. Read inspirational books, scripture, novel, motivational readings etc. 3. Be active. Go to the gym, take a hike, enjoy nature, exercise, visit a “positive” person, serve/help someone, laugh, go on a ‘date’, hold hands with your sweetheart, do something artistic. 4. Do something fun at least…

While machines that vibrate, massage, or otherwise shake the body have been around for years, I have generally avoided looking into them.

That is until I was at a seminar where a colleague, whom I respected, was one of the speakers of an afternoon session, talking about vibration therapy. He talked about mechan-oreceptor stimulation, neurol-ogical reinte-gration, lymphatic drainage and detoxification, improved blood flow and circulation, and a lot of other principles that I deal…
