Hoverboards!!! I have to admit that this would be really awesome. The video linked below is for what seems like a legit hoverboard. If anyone out there ends up buying one swing by sometime, we would love to try it out.


We had some fun conversations over the last week in regards to people with symptoms that may seem like there is nothing to do to help but with further investigation there is a great deal of improvement to be had. When Dr. Nelson is out and about and meets someone for the first time this is the usual conversation.
“Oh, you are a chiropractor?”
Me: Yes I am
“I have this neck thing”
Me: Ok, did you ever have it checked?
“No it just is what it is.”

How often have you thought or heard someone say it is what it is. So often we live with something for so long that we start to believe that it is unchangeable. Looking at some of the unique situations that come into the office we frequently have many different options to help with those situations that seem unchangeable.

At times a arthritic joint may not be a arthritic joint, it may be a long term swelling in your body that may respond to dietary, stress reduction, exercise, chiropractic care or acupuncture. The point that we are trying to make is don’t allow a pain or symptom to go unchecked and under evaluated, daily we have situations that change for the better using a combination of therapies that were previously lumped into the “it just is” category.

I have attached a cool little article from US News that covers some aches and pains that typically fall under the just live with it category.
