Pretty shin splint tape for the weekend...
An award winning article from 2015 that shows that cranial bones do actually move during respiration. My cranial sacral patients will appreciate this!
Kinesiotaping is as effective as cortisone injections for shoulder impingement pain.
Continuing on discussion of my upcoming Pelvic Floor article. Sports performance is another area where the Pelvic Floor can have massive implications. The first image shows one of my active patients overhead squatting as low as he could possibly go. The second image is his squat following a very quick Pelvic Floor correction. The results are dramatic. No soft tissue work, no chiropractic intervention, no rehab... simply helping the brain reconnect to the pelvic floor. This one correction has done wonders for many of my cross-fitters and took one of my 40+ Male Crossfitters from being ranked 5000+ in the overhead squat to getting into the top 200 in a matter of days. So yes, it's an incredibly important structure for performance, function, and everyday life. Stay tuned for this upcoming article in Oklahoma Sports and Fitness Magazine.
I'm currently writing an article on Stress incontinence. It has become disturbingly common and affects a large percentage of our active patient population. I have estimated that up to 1/3rd of my female runners have had pelvic floor / bladder urgency issues, and over half of my female cross-fitters. The pelvic floor muscles are vital for power, performance and supporting the bladder. I received an email from a young mother who has battled stress incontinence for nearly a year. She has been unable to run or jump without losing urinating. She spent 6 weeks doing akward assessments and therapies with a physical therapist to remedy this issue. What she got was low back and tailbone pain, thousands of kegals and no improvement in her incontinence issues. Today was our first day and she emailed me this evening.... "You'll never believe this...ok maybe you will haha...I just made it through a workout without peeing! It was a little shorter than usual, but still!! I was able to do several things that I always have problems with!!!! I'm amazed. Can't wait for more. Maybe I will be able to run again someday!" All we did today was reconnect the dots. We helped her body find the pelvic floor again. When the lightbulb goes off, the body remembers and there is rarely any need to do rehab. Stress incotnence can be fixed quickly and permenantly all without ever doing a single kegal. You won't want to miss this article that may be life changing for so many of you!

Patient with diagnosed frozen shoulder for about 6 months. 6 weeks of Physical therapy did not help. This shoulder problem has gotten pretty bad and the patient even told me that her spouse has to help her with simple things like pulling her hair up. This was not an easy one! I can unlock most frozen shoulders in 5-10 seconds. This one took a half hour with at least a dozen corrections. But the results were dramatic. She cried, I cried, I got hugged about a dozen times and she left with a huge smile! Fixing runners and cross fitters is fun, but this woman was losing her livelihood. This is why I went to school for such a long time. This is why I continue to learn. This is why I continue to push what is possible - because I know what its like to have your body feel out of control. I know what is like to feel broken. We do what we do to help people who have been deemed helpless by their physicians. There is a another way, a better way!

The plantar fascia is deep. One of the best ways to get to that tissue is with Dry Needling. These are 2 inch needles. Just one of the many therapies we provide.

It's getting warmer outside. Time to fire up the Cryo machine. If you're sore from training, or have general aches and pains from life or inflammation, our whole body cryotherapy machine may be the answer you're looking for. At $25 per session, it's the cheapest in Oklahoma and possibly the most affordable machine in the United States.
If you're having problems going to sleep or staying a sleep, here is one thing you can do to help. I would also recommend placing your phone across the room or placing it on "airplane" mode if you keep it on your nightstand.
If I've asked you about your diet soda drinking habits.... here is one of the primary issues coming to life.

If you are continuously plagued by anxiety and stress, it may be something we can help with.
a great article on our office and why we stand apart from typical chiropractic offices.
10 years since you've touched your left shoulder blade you say.... A few corrections and we are well on our way. If I had 10 more minutes to do some soft tissue work I bet we would have got there... Patient says, "well that's amazing!" We can help issues that you would never think a chiropractor could help with. That's what's makes this job so much fun!
We are pleased to welcome Dr. Paul Gomez to Tensegrity Chiropractic. He will begin seeing patients this next week and will help with my overflow. If you have been frustrated with not being able to get into our office in a short enough time.... He is our answer!
