“Show me a six-pack and I will show you dysfunction.”
– Dr. Brett Winchester, DC, DNS Instructor, MPI Board
As the holidays are leaving us and the warmer weather is fast approaching, everyone is hitting the gym doing 45 minutes’ worth of crunches. This quote will hit home and confuse many people. We as a society have been taught to believe that a thin stomach and walking around with a 6-pack is ideal. Unfortunately, we are here to tell you that it is not.
One of the most common injuries seen and treated at Keith Clinic is the whiplash injury. Whiplash injuries or acceleration-declaration injuries occur due to rapid back and forth movements sustained to the body (neck or back most commonly).
It comes from the cracking of a whip hence the name whiplash.
In today’s world, much of our days are spent sitting at a computer for many hours at a time or just sitting in general. Here are a few key points about why this may be detrimental in the long run especially to our younger generation.
With the cold temperatures, rain, snow, and wind comes colds, accidents, and stiff/achy muscles and joints. Whether young or old, everyone can suffer from discomfort that is caused by cold temperature and atmospheric pressures. These natural elements can cause flare-ups or problems in people who have various types of arthritis, post-surgical areas, skin condition, etc. Cold weather can cause even the healthiest person to move slower, feel stiff or tense, and cause an increased chance of injury.
Trampolines, funny jokes, and roller coasters are all things that mothers tend to avoid. But why? Leakage. Or fear thereof. We are so thankful to be able to tell these women- YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PEE YOUR PANTS FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE! (If you don’t want to) Yes, it will take some effort up front and yes, it is not going to be an overnight fix. But hey, you can’t grow a baby overnight either!

The football season is finally upon us! Did you know that chiropractic plays a vital role in keeping players healthy? In the NFL, chiropractors are seen as vital support to their overall health and wellness. Certified NFL trainers agree that chiropractic care is very important when it comes to “treating low back and other musculoskeletal injuries.” According to a recent study done by the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians, a “substantial portion of NFL trainers have developed cooperative relationships with chiropractors, with 77% having referred a player to a chiropractor. 100% percent of NFL teams have a chiropractor officially on staff.”

A very common question we get here at Keith Clinic is can my kids get adjusted? And the answer is YES! The misconception is that they will be adjusted just like an adult. Because they are much smaller and muscles haven’t developed like adults, adjustments to children require much less force.
