M.O.V.E.: Motivation to be healthy

June 26th, 2013 | Exercise, Health Care, Muscular Endurance, Range of Motion, Wellness, Workout | 0 Comments

M.O.V.E.  Motivation to be healthy.

Motivate, Organize, Visualize, Execute.

It doesn’t take much. Get off the technology. I hear everyday in my practice “…you don’t understand doc. I need to get things done and I have to be “connected.  My people need me. I work constantly. If I didn’t have my cell phone, computer etc. I would never get done.  How is this?  How did we as a race build pyramids, discover new worlds across the ocean, put someone in outer space. We did all of this without cell phones and technology that keeps us not in constant contact but in a vegetative “zombie” state. We are spending more on health care than ever before and we are sicker than we have ever been in history.  Put down your smart phones and MOVE.

Motivation to be healthy.

Motivation can come from within or outside.  It is usually helpful to have someone alongside you.  You can then hold each other accountable.

Organize to be healthy.

Organize:  This means you have to plan.  Failing to plan means you are planning to fail.

Visualize to be healthy.

Visualize:  See in your minds eye exactly every detail of your successful outcome and use your organizational plan to achieve it!

EXECUTE.

Finally, Execute:  Sitting on the couch with all the best positive thoughts in the world will not get you your ideal goals.  Part of your execution is the planning to commit to a workout, eating plan and specific times to do so.  Do not waiver from this.  Oh you say your life got in the way.  My patients ran over.  That is my big rationalization.  Fill in your own lame excuse here.  If something gets in your way.  Then you did not do step two properly and plan.  Let’s end this Zombie Apocalypse!

FlexBuilding Muscle Fiber Stretching Helps Restore Muscle Function Following Surgery

January 10th, 2011 | Exercise, Flexibility, Health Care, Muscles, Range of Motion, Wellness, Workout | 36 Comments

The following video testimonial from Eric Whitehorn is only one example of how much relief and restoration of muscle function can be achieved with the use of chiropractic adjustments and the use of FlexBuilding, a unique system of stretching muscle fiber.   Eric was a personal trainer when he had a seizure one day and subsequently learned he had a brain turmor which required immediate surgery.

After brain surgery, additional surgery was required to Eric’s shoulders.   Eric suffered complete dislocation of both shoulders with full thickness tears of the rotator cuff muscles. I began treating Eric with FlexBuilding movements to restore function to the muscles and tendons.  Regular FlexBuilding stretching is done each week and he continues his recovery.

Eric is now back in the gym working and seeing clients on a regular basis.

Some of the FlexBuilding moves used with Eric will be featured in upcoming blogs.
