In choosing the block, Michelangelo said that he looked past the flaws to visualize the figure that had to be freed. He then merely chipped away at what was NOT David to reveal the masterpiece. Likewise, in his dramatic series known as the Captives, partially sculpted figures appear as if they are escaping from the stone that imprisons them. Subluxated patients are very similar.</p> <p>Within each subluxated individual is a masterpiece waiting to emerge. Like Michelangelo, a skillful Chiropractor sees the potential health within every patient. Years of stress, trauma and fear acting as granite which entombs your potential â every adjustment acting as a finely placed chisel strike that gently chips away the stone to free the beautiful life inside you! With time and persistency, a fine piece of art emerges.</p> <p>No matter how covered, disfigured or unfinished you may feel, stay consistent with your care. Every adjustment that chips away at nerve interference reveals the amazing, healthy person who lies within you!</p> Forget Someone? http://www.roscoechiro.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2021/12/07/forget-someone/ Tue, 07 Dec 2021 12:11:14 -0500 <p><img alt="" src="https://roscoechiro.com/uploads/Forget_Someone.png" style="width: 761px; height: 400px;" /></p> <p><b>Chiropractor âÂ</b>âHey Mary, where are your kids?âÂ<b>Mary âÂ</b>âI left them at home, they donât have any back painââÂ<b>Chiropractor âÂ</b>âThat might be true, but are they subluxated?â</p> <p>Â</p> <p>Studies show that stress from the birth process alone is enough to produce pediatric subluxations â subtle, yet significant vertebral misalignments which alter normal nerve function in children. And donât forget the stress they experience from falling off bikes, rough housing with siblings or just trying to fit in at school. Kids are inherently subluxation prone!</p> <p>If you bring your kids to the dentist for preventative maintenance as soon as they get teeth, it only makes sense you bring them to the Chiropractor as soon as they get a spine. In other words, donât leave them at homeâ get them checked EARLY and REGULARLY for subluxations. Youâre investing in their health and their future when you do!</p> The Rest of the Family http://www.roscoechiro.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2021/05/04/the-rest-of-the-family/ Tue, 04 May 2021 12:32:09 -0400 <p><img alt="" src="https://roscoechiro.com/uploads/The_Rest_of_the_Family.png" style="width: 763px; height: 400px;" /></p> <p>Mommy loves going to the Chiropractor. Ever since sheâs started, weâve seen a huge change in her. She used to get headaches every day, but now she rarely gets them. Daddy notices that Mommy sleeps through the night more often now and she wakes up in a much happier mood. Sheâs even doing more around the house and spending more time with us reading, playing and just being a great mom. We never see her popping those pills anymore.</p> <p>Mommy told us when she goes to the Chiropractor they check her for something called a Subluxationâ thatâs whatâs been making her sick all these years. They check her spine to see if she needs to get worked on. When she does they do something called an adjustment to fix her. Mommyâs been the healthiest sheâs been in a long time. Weâre all so happy for her and we love having our Mommy back. But we have one questionâ</p> <p>With Mommy doing so well, we wonder if going to the Chiropractor could help us too! Daddyâs always sore after work and he has to take more and more medicine for his high blood pressure. My sister has to take an inhaler every day for her asthma and I hate having to take stuff for my allergies and ear infections. We all want to be healthy like Mommy but we donât know where else to turn. Maybe the Chiropractor can help us too. If Mommy would only bring us to get checked!</p> The Scale Moves Slowly http://www.roscoechiro.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2021/03/02/the-scale-moves-slowly/ Tue, 02 Mar 2021 11:08:40 -0500 <p><img alt="" src="https://roscoechiro.com/uploads/The_Scale_Moves_Slowly.png" style="width: 760px; height: 401px;" /></p> <p>If you jump on the scale after every healthy meal you ate, looking for an immediate change, youâre going to drive yourself nuts. DoingÂ<i>good</i>Âthings for your body isÂ<i>good</i>Ââ but those good things may not register noticeable changes right away. The same goes for your adjustments.</p> <p>Itâs common for clients to hop off the chiropractic table after an adjustment, looking for some instant, measurable change in the way they feelâ and there are times when some relief is experienced. However, to expect an immediate resolution of a chronic complaint from one adjustment is no different than expecting to be 10 lbs lighter after just one low carb meal.</p> <p>Patience is your friend and time is the road you must both travel to reap the health rewards you hope for. It takes work and time for your body to make the best of each life enhancing adjustment. Be consistent and faithful with your care and youâll eventually experience the lasting results we know youâre capable of getting!</p> Launching Your Care http://www.roscoechiro.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2021/02/23/launching-your-care/ Tue, 23 Feb 2021 13:13:32 -0500 <p><img alt="" src="https://roscoechiro.com/uploads/Launching_Your_Care.png" style="width: 760px; height: 399px;" /></p> <p>In its heyday, the space shuttle would generate nearly 8 million pounds of thrust just to lift itself off the launch pad into the atmosphere. Once beyond the Earthâs gravitational pull, it didnât require as much effort to stay in space and could effortlessly cruise at 17,500 mph with a fraction of that power. The same can be said for your chiropractic care plan.</p> <p>The start of any healthy endeavor requires more effort â in chiropractic that means more visits in the beginning to break free from the gravity of dis-ease and build forward momentum. Once free from the âpullâ of poor habits and chronic illness, it requires less effort to keep you aloft.</p> <p>It takes more effort to get off the initial care launch pad than it does to stay in a healthy orbit. If you want to get results, expect to put more work in at the beginning of your care. Your chiropractic team is ready to help you along the wayâ just stick with the mission plan and youâll reach your destination!</p> Why Check Your Eggs? http://www.roscoechiro.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2021/02/16/why-check-your-eggs/ Tue, 16 Feb 2021 11:39:17 -0500 <p><img alt="" src="https://roscoechiro.com/uploads/Why_Check_Your_Eggs.png" style="width: 759px; height: 397px;" /></p> <p>How many times have you had a minor fender-bender, or a slip on the sidewalk and never gave it a second thought? Maybe your ego was bruised, but you didnât notice any outward signs of injury. What happened to you on the inside could be a different story.</p> <p>After a trauma, things may appear fine on the outside, but it doesnât mean theyâre ok on the inside. Thatâs why we open egg cartons and check the contents for hidden damage before we buy them. The same goes for your spine after any jolt. What may seem like a minor bump from the outside, could actually create SUBLUXATIONS on the inside. (Misaligned vertebrae that interfere with nerve function, and silently diminish health)</p> <p>Whatâs the smart thing to do? Get your spine checked for SUBLUXATIONS after any trauma, no matter how big or small. If your kid takes a tumble down the stairs â get them checked. If your spouse backs the car into a fence post â get them checked. If you tripped over the dog on the way to the refrigerator last night â get yourself checked too. Lifeâs tough enough without having to live it SUBLUXATED!Â</p> Which Pothole Did It http://www.roscoechiro.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2021/01/19/which-pothole-did-it/ Tue, 19 Jan 2021 11:33:07 -0500 <p><img alt="" src="https://roscoechiro.com/uploads/Which_Pothole_Did_It.png" style="width: 758px; height: 398px;" /></p> <p>Itâs a common question Chiropractic patients haveâ âHey doc, what do you think did it to me this time? Is it the way Iâm sleeping, or maybe the stress at work?â To tell you the truth, without 24/7 video surveillance of your every move, itâs difficult to tell.</p> <p>Trying to determine what specific activity created your subluxations is like trying to figure out which pothole in the road knocked your car out of alignment. They all contribute to it. And driving in fear â worrying about every rock, crack and ditch your car travels over, will only stress you more.</p> <p>Instead of fretting over every scenario that could throw your spine out of alignment, itâs healthier just to get checked and adjusted on a regular basis. Physical, mental and chemical stress is an everyday part of life. Chiropractic care simply helps you get past all the bumps youâll eventually hit in the road!</p> Living on a Crooked Frame http://www.roscoechiro.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2021/01/12/living-on-a-crooked-frame/ Tue, 12 Jan 2021 11:56:17 -0500 <p><img alt="" src="https://roscoechiro.com/uploads/Living_on_a_Crooked_Frame.png" style="width: 760px; height: 399px;" /></p> <p>If youâve ever crashed your bicycle and twisted the handle bars out of whack, you probably got up, stabilized the front tire between your knees and muscled the frame back into alignment before hopping on again. Everyone knows riding a bike with crooked steering could put you at risk for another spill down the road.</p> <p>After youâve crashed your body (i.e. lifted a heavy weight incorrectly, fell asleep on the couch or spent 8 hours sitting in front of a computer), your spine may also have slipped out of alignment. A healthy posture requires your head, shoulders, hips, and feet to line up properly for your spine to maintain functional integrity â just like handlebars of a bike need to line up with the frame and tires to steer properly. If one part of a mechanical structure becomes misaligned (like your head isnât balance over your shoulders, or your hips arenât balance over your feet) it will create undue stress on the rest of the system and increase the risk of catastrophic failure!</p> <p>If riding with crooked handle bars feels awkward, just imagine how your muscles, joints and ligaments feel when you try to perform routine, daily activities with a crooked spine. Maybe those annoying aches and pains are telling you ââitâs time for a trip to the Chiropractor to get straightened out!â</p> Before You Exercise http://www.roscoechiro.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2021/01/05/before-you-exercise/ Tue, 05 Jan 2021 12:07:13 -0500 <p><img alt="" src="https://roscoechiro.com/uploads/Before_You_Exercise.png" style="width: 761px; height: 400px;" /></p> <p>Hammer a straight nail, and it drives right into the wood. Hammer a bent one, and it bends even more. The same principle applies to your spine.</p> <p>A properly aligned spine can withstand the forces you encounter every day (like lifting, standing, bending and twisting). Put a âkinkâ in the spine (subluxation), and instead of withstanding those forces, your spine succumbs to them â turning normal everyday activities like doing housework, exercising or playing with your kids into occasions for injury, discomfort and disability.</p> <p>Structural integrity begets normal function. When it comes to strength and performance, your spine needs to be in proper alignment to get any job done safely and pain free. Keep it in shape with regular Chiropractic care and youâll protect yourself from lifeâs daily pounding!</p> An ADIO Thanksgiving http://www.roscoechiro.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2020/11/24/an-adio-thanksgiving/ Tue, 24 Nov 2020 10:58:53 -0500 <p><img alt="" src="https://roscoechiro.com/uploads/An_ADIO_Thanksgiving.png" style="width: 763px; height: 400px;" /></p> <p>Itâs Thanksgiving time so we would like to share with you a few things we are truly grateful for this year. Hereâs a short listâ</p> <p>Weâre thankful for Subluxation free spines! Patient nerve systems, through which the power of innate intelligence flows, coordinating all the functions that support life. An abundance of trusted referrals and miracle testimonials. Weâre especially grateful for our principle, and the many lives that have been saved by its faithful application!</p> <p>But most of all weâre thankful for all our patients, staff and ChiropracTIC fanatics worldwide who, through their trust and unrelenting desire to advance life, have come to appreciate these things as well. Our practice is nothing without you â our Chiropractic family. Have a blessed Thanksgiving, above down, inside and out!</p> Healing with the Brakes on http://www.roscoechiro.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2020/09/09/healing-with-the-brakes-on/ Wed, 09 Sep 2020 12:04:14 -0400 <p><img alt="" src="https://roscoechiro.com/uploads/Healing_with_the_Brakes_On.png" style="width: 761px; height: 397px;" /></p> <p>Have you ever felt like youâre spinning your wheels when it comes to staying healthy? You eat right, exercise five days a week and try to get enough sleep â youâve got the âpedal to the metalâ when it comes to staying fit, but somethingâs holding you back. Maybe itâs time to pay more attention to your nerve system.</p> <p>Although youâve got one foot on the gas, subluxations can put the brakes on your progress! Subluxations are troublesome misalignments in your spine that irritate your nerve system and rob you of potential health energy. The effect is like trying to drive with your brakes on. Youâve got your fitness throttle wide open, but youâre going nowhere fast.</p> <p>If you want to stop spinning your wheels when it comes to your health, prioritize your spinal care. When it comes to unleashing more health horse power, nothing releases the brake like Chiropractic can!</p> Repetition Restores http://www.roscoechiro.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2020/06/16/repetition-restores/ Tue, 16 Jun 2020 13:09:59 -0400 <p><img alt="" src="https://roscoechiro.com/uploads/Repetition_Restores_.jpg" style="width: 1280px; height: 853px;" /></p> <p style="color: rgb(29, 34, 40); font-family: Helvetica Neue,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 16px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; white-space: normal; word-spacing: 0px;"><span style="font-size: 12pt; line-height: 107%;">If your hand was taped in one position for years, and someone cut the tape off and tried to move it, what do you think would happen? Your hand would snap back to the position it was stuck in for all that time. But with repetition â normal movement and alignment can be restored. The same goes for your spine.</span></p> <p style="color: rgb(29, 34, 40); font-family: Helvetica Neue,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 16px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; white-space: normal; word-spacing: 0px;"><span style="font-size: 12pt; line-height: 107%;">When vertebrae are misaligned and stuck chronically over time (subluxated), supporting muscles and ligaments tend to âholdâ them in that position. The first time a Chiropractor tries to adjust it, just like the taped hand, the vertebrae may shift back to the old position it was stuck in. Thatâs why âone and doneâ rarely works in Chiropractic. It takes repetition to change.</span></p> <p style="color: rgb(29, 34, 40); font-family: Helvetica Neue,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 16px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; white-space: normal; word-spacing: 0px;"><span style="font-size: 12pt; line-height: 107%;">Frequency and repetition are necessary components of any successful Chiropractic care plan. The more consistent you are with your adjustments, the better the results. For Chiropractors, the definition of sanity is doing the right thing over and over again until health is restored.</span></p> Restoration Care http://www.roscoechiro.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2020/06/09/restoration-care/ Tue, 09 Jun 2020 13:00:36 -0400 <p><img alt="" src="https://roscoechiro.com/uploads/Restoration_Care.png" style="width: 760px; height: 398px;" /></p> <p style="color: rgb(29, 34, 40); font-family: Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 16px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; white-space: normal; word-spacing: 0px;"><span style="font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt; line-height: 17.12px;">Undertaking a restoration project can be a harrowing task. Depending on how much wear, tear and neglect youâre faced with, it could take several months and a lot of money to get your rusted classic back to the way it looked in its glory days!</span></p> <p style="color: rgb(29, 34, 40); font-family: Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 16px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; white-space: normal; word-spacing: 0px;"><span style="font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt; line-height: 17.12px;">Getting your spine back in shape can be a big restoration project too. Instead of re-chroming the bumpers, painting the trim and removing the rust, your Chiropractor will attempt to bring your spinal range of motion back to operating specs, correct any bad vertebral alignment issues and halt the progression of arthritic degeneration with protective care â all in an effort to undo years of neglect and poor maintenance.</span></p> <p><span style="color: rgb(29, 34, 40); font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: 17.12px; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; white-space: normal; word-spacing: 0px;">Too often, people leave spinal care out of their health regiment â waiting until something âbreaks downâ before they give it proper attention. Unfortunately when it comes to your spine, itâs impossible to replace original parts once theyâve worn. So please, take care of the ones you have now!</span></p> Process of Illumination http://www.roscoechiro.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2020/04/28/process-of-illumination/ Tue, 28 Apr 2020 11:36:53 -0400 <p><img alt="" src="https://roscoechiro.com/uploads/Process_of_Illumination.png" style="width: 760px; height: 399px;" /></p> <p style="color: rgb(29, 34, 40); font-family: Helvetica Neue,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 16px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; white-space: normal; word-spacing: 0px;"><span style="font-size: 12pt; line-height: 107%;">To eliminate darkness, you must add LIGHT.

If you break the word down you get:</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; line-height: 107%;">Â</span></p> <p><b><span style="font-family: &amp;quot;arial&amp;quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt; line-height: 107%;">SUB </span></b><span style="font-family: &amp;quot;arial&amp;quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt; line-height: 107%;">= Less, <b>LUX</b> = Light, and <b>ATION</b> = A state or condition of.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; line-height: 107%;">Â</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; line-height: 107%;">Subluxation literally means a state of less âLightâ or energy caused when misaligned spinal bones restrict the flow of impulses through the nerve system. A Chiropractic adjustment corrects this misalignment, eases pressure off nerves and extends the time Life energy flows through you â giving you more opportunity to heal!</span></p> <span style="font-family: &amp;quot;arial&amp;quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt; line-height: 107%;">Now that the day light will be extended longer, remember your innate healing âLightâ will also shine longer after every adjustment you receive.

Our immune system is a vital part of us staying healthy, aswell as our bodies being able to function to its full potential, and ourlifestyles play a huge role in whether or not we stay healthy on a consistentbasis!How Can Chiropractic help boost the immune system?The nervous system and immune system are hardwired to worktogether to create optimal responses for the body and interact with each othermore often than you may think!The nervous system relays information to the brain from theentire body and can directly influence receptors in the immune system. Thebrain has the ability to use nerve cells to communicate directly with theimmune system and trigger an immune response, and vice versa. The immune systemcan send signals to the brain to let it know of any foreign, unwanted antigens.The brain can then tell the nervous system to react.

Usually youâll find an electrical system issue that initiated the stallâ and the engines wonât fire until itâs addressed.</span></p> <p style="color: rgb(29, 34, 40); font-family: Helvetica Neue,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 16px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; white-space: normal; word-spacing: 0px;"><span style="font-size: 12pt; line-height: 107%;">When old injuries fail to get 100% better, or an illness persists much longer than anticipated, itâs time to check your healing engines â and the first place to look should be your Nerve System. Nerves carry signals for muscle movement and sensation, but they also carry âneurotrophicâ or tissue nourishing signals that influence growth and repair. Think of the person with limb atrophy from permanent nerve damage. Without proper nerve supply, body parts wither and die â the most common source of nerve flow restriction being a subluxated spine.</span></p> <p><span style="color: rgb(29, 34, 40); font-family: &amp;quot;arial&amp;quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: 107%; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; white-space: normal; word-spacing: 0px;">While there are many reasons for poor healing, nerve interference from spinal mis-alignments (subluxations) is a good place to start the trouble shooting process. Once normal nerve integrity and flow has been restored with proper adjustments, thereâs a good chance your healing engines will start back up and youâll be on the road to recovery again!</span></p> The Missing Piece http://www.roscoechiro.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2020/02/18/the-missing-piece/ Tue, 18 Feb 2020 10:11:56 -0500 <p><img alt="" src="https://roscoechiro.com/uploads/The_Missing_Piece.png" style="width: 765px; height: 401px;" /></p> <p style="color: rgb(29, 34, 40); font-family: Helvetica Neue,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 16px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; white-space: normal; word-spacing: 0px;"><span style="font-size: 12pt; line-height: 107%;">Setting goals for a healthier lifestyle is something we do every yearâ and for some, just about every month! No doubt there are a myriad of exercise plans, home gym equipment and diet regiments to choose from to restore your fitness and vitality â but will you include this important piece of the puzzle to become the healthiest version of you yet?</span></p> <p style="color: rgb(29, 34, 40); font-family: Helvetica Neue,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 16px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; white-space: normal; word-spacing: 0px;"><span style="font-size: 12pt; line-height: 107%;">Eating right and exercising are important to restoring lost health. But your âbest healthâ picture wonât be complete without a clear nerve system. Proper muscle function, efficient digestion and a good mental attitude depend on smooth transmission of signals within your nerve system â signals which can be interfered with if your spine is stiff, misaligned and in poor shape.</span></p> <p><span style="color: rgb(29, 34, 40); font-family: &amp;quot;arial&amp;quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: 107%; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; white-space: normal; word-spacing: 0px;">If you want to get the most out of any new healthy routine, make sure to pencil in a trip to your Chiropractor and have your spinal health evaluated for potential problems that could hold you back. If you fit in ALL the pieces of the puzzle, your hard work will certainly pay off.</span></p> Happy Chiro-Valentine's http://www.roscoechiro.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2020/02/12/happy-chirovalentines/ Wed, 12 Feb 2020 11:36:43 -0500 <p><img alt="" src="https://roscoechiro.com/uploads/Happy_Chiro-Valentine_s.png" style="width: 763px; height: 399px;" /></p> <p style="color: rgb(29, 34, 40); font-family: Helvetica Neue,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 16px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; white-space: normal; word-spacing: 0px;"><span style="font-size: 12pt; line-height: 107%;">There is a lot to love about Chiropractic â the science of nerve function, the art of correcting posture and spinal alignment.

Psychologist analyze thoughts. Clergy tend to matters of the spirit. But no one profession touches them allâ your physical health, mental health, and spiritual health like Chiropractic! You canât experience any of these without a clear nerve system. When Chiropractors restore normal spinal alignment and clear away nerve stress, your ability to express physical, mental, and spiritual health is simply better.</span></p> <p><span style="color: rgb(29, 34, 40); font-family: &amp;quot;arial&amp;quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: 107%; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; white-space: normal; word-spacing: 0px;">Love and Life thrive where things are aligned. The resolution of pain and restoration of function are nice side effects of Chiropractic â the thing we love the most, however, is when you become whole again.

We know that each human body is blessed with an internal intelligence â an auto pilot capable enough to coordinate and carry out all the steps required to build and repair damaged tissue when necessary. By adjusting, weâre simply maintaining an environment conducive for that healing process to occur (a clear nerves system) and TRUSTING the innate wisdom in the patient to run the show.</span></p> <span style="font-family: &amp;quot;arial&amp;quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt; line-height: 107%;">The only thing a doctor can ever heal is him or herself.

For every inch that your head is held forward, an additional 10 pounds of pressure is placed on the supporting tissues of your neck and shoulders. This causes the person to have a more pronounced forward head carriage. From there it is a domino effect that causes subluxations to the cervical vertebrae, which in turn pinches the nerves and causes the muscles along the rear of the neck and upper back to accommodate for this extra load. As a result, theyâll experience stress and strain that is greater than normal!</span></p> <p style="color: rgb(29, 34, 40); font-family: Helvetica Neue,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 16px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; white-space: normal; word-spacing: 0px;"><span style="font-family: &amp;quot;arial&amp;quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt; line-height: 107%;">How Can You Treat Text Neck?</span></p> <p><span style="color: rgb(29, 34, 40); font-family: &amp;quot;arial&amp;quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 12pt; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: 107%; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; white-space: normal; word-spacing: 0px;">Correcting your posture and being more aware of keeping your head up while looking at your phone is a great place to start, but getting in to see Dr. Rini for a regular chiropractic adjustment is the only way to help correct the subluxations in your neck and to restore its natural curve!</span></p> On the Same Page http://www.roscoechiro.com/blog/weekly-chiropractic-info/2020/01/15/on-the-same-page/ Wed, 15 Jan 2020 11:40:59 -0500 <p><img alt="" src="https://roscoechiro.com/uploads/On_The_Same_Page.png" style="width: 761px; height: 400px;" /></p> <p style="color: rgb(29, 34, 40); font-family: Helvetica Neue,Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 16px; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; white-space: normal; word-spacing: 0px;"><span style="font-size: 12pt; line-height: 107%;">You rarely hear a medical doctor prescribing to their patients the same care they do for their own families.

Some adopted this âclear nerve systemâ lifestyle from a miraculous chiropractic experience they had before becoming one themselvesâ others because their parents brought them as a child or they descended from a long lineage of Chiropractors.
