Every Wednesday night from 6:30 PM to 7:00 PM we host a spinal workshop right here in the office. (There is no additional charge to attend these workshops, they are an essential part of your treatment.)
Getting adjusted and doing nothing for your spinal hygiene when you leave the office is like going to the dentist for your cleanings but never brushing or flossing in between.
The purpose of the workshops is to give you a clear understanding of what you can do to protect your spine and minimize the subluxations* you create in your daily life.
The topics covered on a rotating basis are neck stretches and strengthening, lower back stretches and strengthening, and new patient spinal health. Although the titles remain consistent, the content varies from week to week in order to cover all of the necessary information for our patients.
Our recommendation is that each patient attends three workshops within their first two months of care and one per month thereafter. In doing so, you are continually reminded of the importance of maintaining your spinal health throughout your lifetime. In addition, you are encouraged to bring guests to each and every workshop in order to share with your friends and loved ones the valuable information you have learned.
*A subluxation exists when spinal vertebrae are misaligned, moving abnormally and creating nerve pressure and interference to the corresponding muscles, tissues and organs. In addition, disks wear out prematurely and arthritic changes occur in the vertebra. Chiropractic adjustments correct subluxations and restore normal spinal motion and alignment, thereby reducing nerve pressure and interference.
