Nutrition

Like exercise, proper nutrition provides a wealth of benefits‚ both physical and emotional‚ that contribute to your body's strength and its ability to ward off disease and disability.

A healthy diet translates into a healthy body; the proper mix of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients are the best recipe for ensuring that your skeletal, muscular, nervous, and circulatory systems function smoothly.

Following are some dietary tips that will help you keep your spine, joints, and muscles healthy:

  • Ample amounts of water are essential from a dietary standpoint. Water keeps your cells hydrated and helps your blood work more efficiently in carrying nutrients throughout your body. Tea, coffee, sodas and alcohol actually have the opposite effect. Drinking excessive amounts of soda and other carbonated beverages could interfere with calcium absorption, which may lead to bone loss and osteoporosis.
  • Calcium (in milk, broccoli, salmon, and kale) keeps your bones strong.
  • Choose foods rich in fiber. A good rule to follow is an intake of 25 to 30 grams of fiber per day. Foods rich in fiber include whole-grain breads and cereals, beans, nuts and some fruits and vegetables.
  • Foods high in Vitamin C (such as broccoli, bell peppers, citrus fruits, cabbage, cauliflower, spinach, and strawberries) help ward off osteoarthritis. Vitamin B and amino acids may help reduce the pain from contact sports. Thiamine can help promote healing. Also consider Vitamin A to strengthen scar tissue. Fortified dairy products and fish rich in Vitamin D help preserve your cartilage.
  • Organically grown foods usually have smaller amounts of toxins in them, so they are arguably safer and healthier.

Raw foods retain vast amounts of minerals and other nutrients, which are destroyed or diminished by the process of cooking (canned tomatoes are the rare exception here). Eat the skins of fruits and vegetables because they often contain more nutrients than what's inside.

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "Had my first appointment with Dr Brad today. I had left lower back pain, left hip and upper left thigh pain. He diagnosed the problem almost immediately and went to work in me. He poked, prodded, used several machines and cracked every bone in my back and neck! He went through thoroughly and explained what he was doing either before or after it did a procedure. After over a year in pain, I walked out 98% pain free. I am going back Friday for a follow up.
    And get this-true to his word he just called me to follow up (it’s 7pm). We chatted a few minutes and he thanked ME!

    He and his staff were not only casual but totally professional and very very cordial and friendly and it’s like i’ve known them for years. So glad God and several others put me into Brad. Fantastic doctor and person! Thanks sir!"

  • "SOOO GRATEFUL for this place!! After being scammed at another chiropractic office who would only “assess” and not actually adjust, I was recommended this clinic by 2 friends! They were incredibly understanding, got me in ASAP and actually adjusted me and well!! They were kind, skilled and efficient, which was important for me as I had to bring my young children and was SO READY to not be in pain anymore!! I’ve been on cloud 9 ever since! Was even more impressed with the phone call follow up I received that evening!! Definitely recommend!!"
