A simple way to understand how mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy heals injured tissue
May 18, 2017
Under Hyperbaric Therapy (HBO2), Oxygen, which is a much smaller molecule than a Red Blood Cell (RBC), is pulled from the larger RBC, which is carrying the oxygen molecules to tissues via hemoglobin. RBC's are the vehicle transport for all oxygen within our body. After extraction, it is now concentrated within the surrounding plasma. This allows the smaller...
Maintenance for your Spine equals Maintenance for your Brain
March 31, 2016
Once you're experiencing pain, it's too late. By that I don't mean that it's not treatable, but I do mean that your system has already been compensating for some time.

Bilateral Arm Tingling: The Upper Thoracic Component
February 7, 2015

Most often, this stems from a cervical root impingment from disc related injury, hypertonicity or spasming of muscles in the scapular(shoulder blade)/rotator cuff region with associated costovertebral (rib/spine articulation) joint fixation. These are all treatable...
Center of Pressure: What this means to posture, joint and spinal pain
October 29, 2014
If I drew a line right down the center of you, it should land in between your ankles. If I looked at you from the side, I should be able to draw a line from your ear and connect it straight down to your shoulder, then hip and finally your ankle. This is perfect center of pressure.
Now, if you think about this from an engineering perspective, it allows...
