Back Pain

Change your spine position, change your back pain

If you have come to me with back pain, it’s very possible we have already spoke about this very thing… However, if you have a family member suffering from back pain, share with them this email as it may just be the thing that gets them over the hump! I talk everyday about strategies at […]

The CrossFit athlete asks the Chiropractor, “Is there such things as good pain?”

One of my competitive CrossFit athletes came in last week with lower back and leg pain. Quickly we were able to classify it as a ‘sciatica’ which I’m sure most of you have heard of before. After the treatment that day, he was able to train that night but was sore the next day and […]

Looks like the medical community is FINALLY starting to catch on…

When you live in a fish bowl like I do, it’s sometimes shocking to remember what the rest of the world thinks about what I do. You see, so many patients come to S2M and get results. And with that, I forget that others in the medical community are shocked and surprised that we can […]
