Sports Injuries


Hi, this is Dr.Mark again and it’s hard to believe, but school is starting next week! WOW! Time flies! I hope you’ve had a great summer.

With the end of summer and the start of the school year comes my favorite sport, FOOTBALL. I love football. I am a huge CHARGER fan. I played football for ten years. I played at Poway High School, and although I wanted to go further, I was just not big enough. I did not want to risk a serious injury and what is funny is that I was never really hurt playing football, but the first year out of high school, on my first show skiing trip, I tore my medial meniscus and had to have knee surgery. Oh, well!

Although I was never really hurt seriously playing football, everyone gets hurt. That is the game. I remember once when I was in 10th grade and I got a strain in my upper back that only hurt when I played. I had this severe pain with deep breathing and activity. I was able to get through it but, had I known about chiropractic, which would have been the treatment of choice. There is only so much ice can do. Adjustments are a mechanical treatment to the joint that returns motion to a motion unit. So with that in mind and all the school sports coming up, I thought I would remind you of the importance of chiropractic in your children’s lives. What is really unfortunate is that my father was going to a chiropractor and I never knew it. All through high school I could have benefited from chiropractic care and I never even heard of chiropractic. So was it my father’s fault? Or his chiropractor’s? I believe it was both! My dad never told me and his chiropractor probably never told him. I don’t want this to be the case with you and your family. I want to see your spouse and your children. They need chiropractic care. As a matter of fact, I was never adjusted until I entered Palmer College of Chiropractic. That was 24 years ago and I have never gone more than one month without an adjustment. If your child or some one you knows plays the game and has been hurt, please tell them of the many benefits of chiropractic and refer them in. They can get the proper care they need and get back in the game!!

Supersized Aftermath

Filed under: Uncategorized — Dr. Mark @ 11:47 pm

Have you seen the movie “Super Size Me”? It is a must see and you’ll be amazed! We’re killing ourselves because we have not taken control over our own health over the course of a lifetime doing the “little” things that are really huge when done consistently. Ultimately, it is each one of us. We make the decisions. So, the question is, What is your lifestyle costing you?

Take a look at these latest facts on the number one cause of death in the United States. Do you know what it is?

Medicine is the number one killer in the U.S.

Hospital Adverse Drug Reactions-106,000 Deaths-Cost 12 billion.

Medical errors-98,000 deaths-cost 2 billion

Bedsores-115,000 deaths-cost 55 billion

Infection-88,000 deaths-cost 5 billion

Unnecessary Procedures-37,136 deaths-cost 122 billion

Outpatient Adverse Drug reactions-199,000 deaths-cost 77 billion

Surgery Related-32,000 deaths-cost 9 billion

You do the math, it is staggering! This is per year! Are you sure you want to put your trust in medicine? Medicine does some great things, but when it comes to health care, they don’t have a clue. Start doing the “little” things today and for the best adjustment in town at the best fee, give me a call or just come in.

As always, I’m here for you and I appreciate your support.

Until next time, God bless you and yours.

Dr. Mark
