Babies benefit from adjustments just as much as their parents! In this video Dr. Kambeitz works with Cavan, improving his range of motion. It’s not easy being a baby, learning to roll, crawl, and walk all while trying to hold up a proportionally larger head. While they might not be able to voice exactly what is bothering them, babies too can have sore necks. Fortunately, chiropractic adjustments provide relief aching back and necks for both young and old.

Thomas J Dubois, a massage therapist and Active Isolated Stretching instructor explains and demonstrates how the AIS technique strengthens and activates muscles for a better stretching routine.
Stress is an integral part of everyone’s life. It seems the more you try to avoid stress, the more stress finds you. Stress is not something to be managed. Stress is an everyday fact of life. What needs to be managed is our response to stress. One of the most powerful ways to do this is to learn how to meditate.
Mindfulness is taking control of your mind by directing its awareness towards something else, like your breath. Remember we are trying to strengthen our PEACE of mind muscles. This cannot be done without peace. It’s like trying to lift weights without the weights. Mindfulness is the mind-body tool that will remove fears, reduce cravings, strengthen self-awareness, and increase our ability to make proper choices when perceiving a stressful event. With 8 Weeks to Wellness® achieve an INCREASE in physical and mental relaxation, alertness, and capacity for more intimate and quality contact with others, creativity, productivity, personal satisfaction with life and work.
Calm and Headspace are two of many apps that can help you get started.
Depak Chopra aptly said we are human “be”ings and not human “do”ings . We certainly have perfected our ability to juggle multiple balls at one time. However, we have not perfected our ability to quiet our mind and truly become a human BEing.
We made it back-to-school, now let’s set the kids up for success this school year!
Back to school is never easy – school supply shopping lists, early alarm clocks, and the anxieties of meeting new classmates and teachers. It is also physically stressful for kids of all ages, as they carry heavy backpacks, spend hours looking at computer or tablet screens (often with poor posture), and are sore from the return of after school sports.
Now that your family has made it back to school, don’t forget to keep adjustments in your family’s routine. Adjustments are beneficial for children of all ages, helping with conditions from bed-wetting, stressed immune systems, sore muscles, growing pains, and much more.
As Dr Bryan Zales explains, “Back to school can be a stressful time for our kids. Their developing immune systems will be bombarded by cold and flu bugs daily. Their growing spines will be carrying heavy loads in improperly fitting backpacks. Fortunately, Kambeitz Chiropractic takes back to school very seriously. Chiropractic adjustments help the spine become more resilient and boost the immune system. Myofascial release therapy relaxes the tension and tightness in their muscles. Exercise helps to strengthen the body and gain postural strength. For my son Colter, I increase the frequency of adjustments to give him the best chance at a happy and healthy back to school!”
Set up your Workspace for Better Comfort and Productivity
Do you work at a desk for a few hours at a time and find that your joints are sore, your neck is stiff, and your wrists are aching? If you answered “yes,” it’s time to evaluate your desk and work area ergonomics. This is necessary for your office, as well as your kids’ homework desks.
Dr. Weston’s Top 5 Things to Pay Attention to When Sitting at Your Desk!
1. Posture! – Make sure your shoulders are touching your seat back. You should be seated upright with your shoulders back. No slouching!
2. Head Position – Is your head jutted forward? Stop that. Your head should be directly over your shoulders. Any deviation of the head forwards increases the strain on your neck muscles leading to neck pain, stiffness, and HEADACHES!
3. Computer position – Organize your workstation in a manner that allows your elbows to be at your sides and bent at 90 degrees when typing on your keyboard. Your hips and knees should also be at a comfortable rest position around 90 degrees when seated. Last, but not least, your monitor should be at a height that allows you to look at it directly in front of you (no neck flexion or extension required).
4. Stretch Regularly – If your muscles maintain the same position for an extended period, they will become accustomed to the new shortened position leaving you with a tight and stiff neck, back, hips, YOU NAME IT! It is important to stop and stretch any muscles you feel may be getting tight. You will thank yourself in the long run.
5. MOVE!!! – You should be taking frequent micro-breaks (2-5 minutes) throughout your day. Aim for standing up and walking around the office every 20-30 minutes. The more you move the better you will feel.
