Dr. Mark's Newsletter September 08


I am happy to announce that we will be here at least another five years. As of this writing I have just signed a new lease agreement that will keep us in this same location thru 2013!! WOW!!!

I want to thank all of you who have allowed me to help you and your family for the past five years with your chiropractic health care needs. As a chiropractor I don’t try to be all things to all people, but what I do, treating all types of soft tissue pain syndromes, I try to do to the best of my ability in a positive environment that will make a powerful impact on your life and that of your family.

I have expanded our services over the past 5 years to include Spinal Decompression, Orthotics, Home Stimulation Units, Massage, Acupuncture and Nutritional Supplements. We are getting ready to add an incredible liquid multivitamin and mineral supplement as well as a new weight loss product. If you ever have any questions about these services please contact me personally. If your condition involves pain or a soft tissue injury to any part of your muscles, joints, or nerves, I can help. As a chiropractor I am not in competition with your primary care doctor, your orthopedist, your physical therapist, your trainer, or your nutritionist. The information and treatment I offer is second to none and should be in accordance with any practitioner that understands and is trained in the treatment of soft tissue problems. As I have often said you don’t need to believe in chiropractic for it to work. Chiropractic is not based on a belief system it is based on science. Chiropractic is based on the science of anatomy, which is the structure of the body, physiology, which is the function of the body, and the nervous system, which is the controlling system of the body. Chiropractic recognizes the body’s own ability to heal itself. This is called innate ability to heal itself when given the proper environment to do so. That proper environment is what I provide when you enter into my office. Through consultation, examination, physiotherapy, adjustments, exercise, stretching, nutrition, orthotics, massage and good health practices I try to reduce or eliminate the pressure, stress, or malfunction that is keeping your body from functioning properly. I then try to teach you how to help yourself with those good practices and follow through.

When you have altered structure, i.e. an altered leg length with a rotated pelvis in combination with altered physiology, i.e. muscle spasm with locked up facet joints your low back hurts. You can live with it, hope it goes away, drug it, wait until it gets so bad that you have to have surgery, or you can learn what is causing it and you can let me fix it naturally with therapy and adjustments and the various things that I just mentioned. If your medical doctor or anybody else for that matter does not understand that then he or she is not trained in the detection of soft tissue dysfunction and or the natural treatment of those dysfunctions. Now you have a choice, you can believe me or believe them. Why should you believe me? Well that is a great question. One, I have 24 years of experience in treating these types of problems. Two, I have treated over 6000 patients with these types of problems. Three, at 50 years of age I have lived what I teach for over 27 years and I am in excellent health and I have done exactly what I tell you to do every day for those past 27 years.

It is not a mystery. It takes dedication and persistence and consistency. I have recovered from two major disc injuries that required over two years of treatment each to fully recover. I did not have surgery, I am on no medication, and I live pain free everyday. I take 15 food supplements a day, workout 5 days a week; get adjusted every two weeks, I don’t smoke, I don’t take drugs, only have an occasional drink, and I pray for great health everyday. The one thing that is very hard for people to realize is that it takes time. How many people would have been willing to go to the chiropractor a hundred times like I did to get my lower back fixed after I bulged a disc due to a roller blade injury? If you have had a problem for years and think that a few visits is going to fix it, that’s just not going to happen. You have to give your body time and continue to receive treatment to release the nerve pressure, muscle dysfunction, and the mechanical joint dysfunction that has caused cellular tissue change and resulted in degeneration. The fact that most people get some relief from the pain in a few visits is an amazing testament to the body’s ability to respond to the positive changes taking place, but for a long term lasting effect the treatment must be continued until you have restored proper mechanical function. The long -term results are huge. Not only do you get to feel better now, but also the treatment sets the stage for proper mechanics for years to come. It actually stops the degenerative cycle that robs so many people of the quality of life as they age.

If you have stopped care or never fully received what we had once talked about, consider coming back in and rededicating yourself to having great health naturally once again.

I want to be playing golf at 80, how about you?
