Meds vs. Spinal Manipulation

“Ouch!” Maybe you were pulling some weeds in the garden, unloading the groceries, or picking up your child out of the car’s child seat.  Or maybe you just woke up one morning in pain and couldn’t move your neck or back.  You’ve injured yourself and need treatment.


The Killer Painkiller Epidemic

By now you must have heard about the growing drug crisis in the United States on what the Center for Disease Control (CDC) is calling “the worst drug epidemic in history.”  Painkillers are being prescribed, ingested, and abused at a frightening rate with opiod-related deaths reaching an annual 17,000 per year and rising, and hospitalizations due to opiod addiction quadrupling from 2007-2010.  One of the main issues is the lack of education and utilization of evidence-based alternative health care.


Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care and massage therapy are treatments that work well for all the members of your family. During pregnancy these disciplines can be greatly enjoyed as prenatal care when the added strain on the spine and restricted movement can lead to pains in back and also to fatigue. At Restoring Health & Wellness we can offer efficient and professional postpartum care, and if it should be needed we also have the skills to deal with pediatric issues.


Therapeutic massage is among the oldest of the healing arts. It is found in all civilizations from ancient Egyptian and roman times to present day spas, health clubs and wellness centers. Hands-on techniques are used to manipulate the muscular structure and soft tissues of the body. It helps the body’s own mechanisms for healing itself. There are several styles and techniques, and each has its own focus.


Training helps individuals assess their level of physical fitness and help them work toward a personal fitness goal through proper exercise instruction and personal motivation. The 5 classic components of fitness are muscular strength, muscular endurance, body composition, cardiovascular endurance, and flexibility, although there are other subsets like power and speed that can be implemented as well.
