Chiropractic is true prevention.  Any disease takes time to entrench itself.  Whether it be cancer, heart disease or arthritis it takes years to show up on these medical “preventative tests”.  Chiropractic however identifies if there is a vertebra out of alignment irritating or interfering with proper nerve supply to the organs or tissues in the body.  Over [...]

Health is no different.  One hundred years ago medical science was using leaches to suck the poisons out of [...]

Neck Pain and Cigarette Smoking Are Connected

Providing Relief for TMJ Disorder

I’ve been running a TMJ pain chiropractic clinic near Escondido in California for several years now. And the more temporomandibular joint disorders I’ve dealt with, the more I’ve learned about this condition.  Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJD) is basically pain felt in the jaw joint, as well as the muscles controlling jaw movement. Causes of pain generally vary, such as genetics, arthritis, and an injury to the jaw. For some, the excessive grinding and clenching of the teeth is also a cause.   Most TMJD cases are temporary, making them easier to deal with. Many home remedies and non-surgical care methods work.

Let’s all get Healthy Together!

I often hear of a celebrity, politician, or even a distant relative having a grave illness or even dying. What happened? They seemed so young or healthy. We don’t really know what kind of life that person lived. We can blame their demise on unfortunate disease, bad luck, or poor genetics, but I feel there is more to it than that.

The original scientist and developer of chiropractic was B.J. Palmer. From 1912 to 1962 he wrote 37 volumes on health, research and philosophy. His friends and contemporaries were Thomas Edison, President Harry Truman, Ronald Reagan, and many other dignitaries. I believe he is one of our great American heroes so it's safe to say that any Escondido chiropractic care provider looks up to him in many ways. In his book, The Bigness of the Fellow Within, he writes: THIS INNER POWER SPEAKS WE CHIROPRACTORS work with the subtle substance of the soul.  We release the prisoned impulse, the tiny rivulet [...]
