  • The Link Between Stress And Pain
    Stress is something we all deal with in some form or fashion. Yet not being able to effectively cope with stress can have adverse effects on our health, including causing headaches, muscle tension, and pain. Often times, we hear that people carry stress in their neck and upper shoulders, but stress can affect all areas of our muscles, and other body systems like digestion, heart rate, hormones and sleep. We all experience stress from jobs, bills, family, finances, deadlines, etc, but there are other stressors that can adversely affect our health. Read more

    It has been documented that thoughts and emotions have a powerful influence over our physical health.

  • Decompression
    Did you know that your spinal column's spongy intervertebral discs (IVDs) comprise 25% of this segmented structure's entire length? Did you know that an adult's spinal column is approximately 24-28 inches in length? A little quick math shows that the total height of your spinal discs is approximately between 6 and 7 inches. But most of us don't get to enjoy the maximum height, springiness, or shock-absorbing capabilities of our spinal IVDs. Read more
  • The Four Seasons
    When we read about the national epidemics of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity, or listen to news reports, programs, or podcasts discussing these health problems, the solutions most frequently proposed include regular vigorous exercise (begun gradually, of course) and a healthy nutritious diet. These action steps are essential for the long-term well-being of us all, regardless of our current health status. Importantly, we gain critical support for these activities by going for regular chiropractic care. Read more

  • Healing Chronic Shoulder Pain
    As we age, years of mechanical stress may lead to deterioration of joints, ligaments, and tendons. This degenerative process, commonly known as arthritis, primarily affects weight-bearing joints such as the hips and knees and those found in the lower back. The shoulder is especially prone to undergo arthritic changes due to its extreme mobility. The extensive range of motion at the shoulder is built-in to the design of this structure, but the tradeoff is instability. The design of the shoulder sacrifices stability for mobility. Read more

Testimonial

  • "I started to come to Dr. Phil because I have a lot of problems with my neck. When I come, he gives me tremendous relief. I don’t suffer from headaches anymore because he adjusts my neck, which is very, very hard to adjust. He has massage therapists that have also helped me a lot, so I am really, really grateful for Dr. Phill."
