By: Nicole Dockham It's that time of year... back to school!

Date: July 24, 2018 | Time: 12:32pm

An average American sits for 11 hours a day! Each hour spent sitting reduces lifespan by 22 minutes.

Date: July 16, 2018 | Time: 4:00am

By: Kou Yang Most people don't realize that something as simple as breathing can be compromised if we don't have a strong inner core.

Lift Like a Pro..

Date: June 27, 2018 | Time: 8:03am

By: Travis Johnson, Chiropractic Intern A common position many Americans find themselves at work is in the sitting position: either in a chair or bending over to pick something up. Due to the demand of 40-hour work weeks, we find ourselves in these positions for a majority of the waking hours of our lives.
