May 14, 2014 No Comments

Sadly, most people that come to see me for the first time show up with some form of pain. Low back, sciatica, neck pain, shoulder pain, etc… I say sadly because here is a little secret for you…it doesn’t need to be that way. We tend to be a nation of reactors instead of proactors…

Looking for More Creativity? Start Walking!

May 3, 2014 No Comments

I am a pacer. When I need to really think, I pace. I remember before a big high school hockey game that I was coaching, as the game got closer I started pacing as I was going through the different match ups and decisions I knew I was going to have to make. I was…

We had an interesting case here last month. As always the names are changed for privacy. Have you ever been upclose with a really good dancer and watched the move? I can’t describe it any other way than this…they just move differently than the rest of us. Beth is a 15 year old dancer that…

Grilling with Beer

April 10, 2014 No Comments

Not too many things say spring and summer more than grilling outdoors. Unfortunately for the meat eaters, grilling at a high temperature is actually bad for you due to the presence of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the meat you are grilling. What are PAHs and what does this have to do with beer? Excellent question. When…

Exercise and Your Heart

March 27, 2014 No Comments

I read something once that said, “You can’t out exercise a bad diet.” I have to be honest, that one surprised me a bit. Growing up I was always told, as long as you exercise enough, you can pretty much eat what you want, within reason. Recently, the director of the Boston Marathon, a runner…

How Often Do You Say No?

March 11, 2014 No Comments

Do you have a hard time saying no? Do you feel guilty when you say no to the bake sale, spending time with people that you don’t really want to see, buying those girl scout cookies, donating money to charity or any one of the other million things that we get asked in a normal…

Keeping Your Balance

Let’s be honest, how often have you given your sense of balance any thought? If you are like most of us, never right? Did you know that falling is the number one source of injuries for people over 65? Every 17 seconds someone is seen in the ER for a fall. Every 30 minutes, someone…

Rotating Your Running Sneakers

I am always asking my patients that are serious runners if they change their shoes out every six months or so.
