If You Think it's a Muscle?

Posted by chad@rohlfsen.com on April 27, 2017 at 9:40 AM Comments comments (0)

You're right, your pain could be coming from a muscle. It could also be coming from a joint, a ligament, a tendon, some fascia, a bone, a blood vessel or just about any deep tissue. In reality, 'classifying' your pain adds nothing to your healing process, but having a clear nerve system does.

Tissues devoid of animating Life cannot repair or heal. Cut into a LIFELESS steak (a muscle), and it will never mend. Injure a LIVE body part however, and it will reorganize itself successfully as long as it receives 100% innate intelligence from the nerve system - regardless of what sensation you feel. When that power of Life flows - you heal. When it trickles - you don't. When it stops - you die.

As Chiropractors, we have compassion for any discomfort you present with. But realize, while naming your 'tissue of pain' (diagnosis) may provide some peace of mind... detecting and correcting the cause (adjustment) will restore your health. For us, what hurts is not nearly important as what's Subluxated.

Healthier Children with Wellness Chiropractic

Posted by chad@rohlfsen.com on April 14, 2016 at 10:00 AM Comments comments (3)

Keeping your child healthy is a big job! Raising a child in this fast paced, fast food, high stress world can be a challenging task. But there is good news. Research shows that the healthiest children may be found in a chiropractic office.

Chiropractic is more than adjusting back and necks. It is a healthy lifestyle, a proactive approach to health and well-being and children have been a part of this chiropractic wellness movement for over 100 years. The intent is to restore function to the body naturally and let the body heal from within. It can be as simple as that. In chiropractic, we have born witness to thousands of children experiencing improved health through chiropractic. Now for the research…

One study compared the health of 200 children of chiropractors and the health of 200 pediatrician's children. You would think that the pediatrician's children would have an unfair advantage. Not true. It is the chiropractic children with the unfair advantage. The study found that the chiropractic children raised in a Wellness Chiropractic model were healthier than the pediatrician's children. While only 19% of the pediatrician's never had an ear infection, the chiropractic children were 69% free of ear infections, a significant health advantage for the chiropractic children. Only 11 % of the pediatrician's children had never used antibiotics while 50% of the chiropractic children had never ever used antibiotics.

Light Up Your Life!

Posted by chad@rohlfsen.com on September 22, 2014 at 10:10 AM Comments comments (0)


A chain reaction occurs when a small event ignites a reaction nearby, setting off another reaction, then another, until it produces an ultimate result. Getting your health back with Chiropractic

care happens in a similar way.

 

Chiropractors start the process with a small event called an Adjustment. Spinal adjustments restore a state of Ease in your nerve system which ignites Healing. Over Time your body's internal Functions light up and you experience Benefits like stronger immunity, deeper sleep, greater physical performance and a confident sense of well being. The ultimate thing that lights up is your LIFE.

 

The goal of Chiropractic is to ignite Life within you so you can regain your health, fulfill your purpose and bring more joy to those around you. Staying 'lit up' with regular Chiropractic care is one of the best gifts you can give yourself and those you love the most.

Another Milestone...

Posted by chad@rohlfsen.com on September 16, 2014 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (0)

 


For over a century Chiropractors have been introducing their clients to the best doctor on the planet...the one that lives INSIDE them. Hereís what weíve accomplished so far.

 

Chiropractic is the largest DRUGLESS, non-medical healing profession in the world

Currently, Chiropractors practice in over 100 countries all over the globe

There are approximately 65,000 Chiropractors in the USA alone, and another 13,000 worldwide

Statistics show that 10-15% of the American population (30 to 40 million) have seen a Chiropractor

 

Those numbers are rising as more people grow weary of mainstream medicineís failure to give them what they ultimately wantÖ HEALTH! One Principle continues to draw the masses to Chiropractic - the acknowledgment of an innate intelligence within all living things, and the never ending pursuit to restore Life through its free expression. Not too shabby for only 119 years.

Did You Hear?

Posted by chad@rohlfsen.com on September 8, 2014 at 9:40 AM Comments comments (0)


Did you know the very first Chiropractic adjustment wasn't for back pain? Here's how it all started as told by our founder Dr. D.D. Palmer in September of 1895Ö

 

"Harvey Lillard, a janitor, in the Ryan Block, where I had my office, had been so deaf for 17 years that he could not hear the racket of a wagon on the street or the ticking of a watch. I made inquiry as to the cause of his deafness and was informed that when he was exerting himself in a cramped, stooping position, he felt something give way in his back and immediately became deaf.

 

An examination showed a vertebra racked from its normal position. I reasoned that if that vertebra was replaced, the man's hearing should be restored. With this object in view, a half hour's talk persuaded Mr. Lillard to allow me to replace it. I racked it into position by using the spinous process as a lever and soon the man could hear as before.

 

There was nothing 'accidental' about this, as it was accomplished with an object in view, and the result expected was obtained. There was nothing 'crude' about this adjustment; it was specific, so much so that no Chiropractor has equaled it."

 

And thatís how Chiropractic was born - good thing D.D. was a great persuader!

Subluxations Don't Take Vacations

Posted by chad@rohlfsen.com on September 2, 2014 at 3:55 PM Comments comments (0)


Toes in the sand, not a cloud in the sky, 75 degree water temps. Vacations are the perfect time to decompress, spend precious time with family and friends and reconnect with your soul. What could possibly stress your body?

 

How about ten days of sleep on a mushy mattress? Or two hours of novice water skiing / body dragging lessons. Not to mention the bottomless Mojitoís and obligatory trips to the dessert buffetÖ and donít forget nursing that nasty sunburn from day three. Unfortunately, stress doesnít take time off. The scenery may change, but your nerve system is still hard at work ñ reacting and adapting to those ìrelaxingî shifts in routine. Itís a prime opportunity to become Subluxated.

 

If youíve been away from the office for a while, we hope youíre well rested. But now itís time to get back on track and into a healthy regimen; especially getting your spine checked and cleared of Subluxations. When you need to recover from vacation ñ put Chiropractic on top of your itinerary.

Walking With ONE Shoe?

Posted by chad@rohlfsen.com on August 27, 2014 at 9:05 AM Comments comments (0)


No one would entertain the thought of walking around with just one shoe on. Not only would it look funny, but it would be really bad for your feet, knees, hips, back and even your neck. Unfortunately, many people have been doing this very thing for years without knowing it!

 

When an otherwise healthy spine is forced to function in a Subluxated state (one or more vertebrae become misaligned and create biophysical deficiency) the resultant imbalance creates poor body mechanics and a higher risk for long term soft tissue damage. Postural distortions like uneven hips or a 'functional short leg' are signs that 'something's off' in your spine and needs to be evaluated. So much so that many Chiropractors use Leg Length Inequality checks as a means to confirm the presence of Subluxations in your spine.

 

Just like driving a car with bad alignment can cause premature wear and tear on tires and brakes - walking around with a functional short leg from subluxations can cause premature wear and tear on your joints and discs (degenerative disc disease). If you're experiencing the warning signs of this type of imbalance (like leg, hip or back pain), get to your Chiropractor ASAP and have your leg lengths professionally checked before more serious damage occurs.

Safeguarding Your Health

Posted by chad@rohlfsen.com on August 11, 2014 at 4:00 PM Comments comments (0)


If health is our most precious treasure, stress is a menacing thief trying to rob us of it every day. And if you're not diligently protecting your health against potential break-ins, chances are you'll lose it without any warning.

 

Stress negatively affects our health in many ways, but perhaps the most devastating is its effect on our Nerve System. Studies have shown a link between stress and a phenomena called Sympathetic Dominance - a condition where the 'fight or flight' functions of your Nerve System become chronically overactive, leading to overload in organic functions, fatigue and eventually disease (1). The good news...

 

When stress is trying to rob you blind, Chiropractic care is the vault protecting your most valuable assets. Just don't use it for bad backs and bad necks. You can rely on regular adjustments to safeguard your nerve system and preserve your WHOLE health. It's for so much more than pain relief.

Diagnose and Diagnosis-er

Posted by chad@rohlfsen.com on August 5, 2014 at 12:15 AM Comments comments (0)


The word diagnosis derives from the Latin 'di' which means two, and 'agnosis' which means without knowledge. So you can say a diagnosis is a meeting of two minds that don't have a clue about what's going on - not very comforting if it's a team of doctors trying to figure out what's wrong with you!

 

A recent study in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) revealed some rather shocking numbers about physiciansí diagnostic accuracy and confidence (1). Turns out the 118 MDs who participated in the study were right only 55% of the time on easy cases and just 6% on the tough ones. Even more surprising, an earlier Pew Survey (2) showed that patients were 41% accurate in their own self diagnosis from on-line resources, giving them a statistical advantage over their more 'learned' MD counterparts.

 

So the question is, do we really have a 'health crisis' in this country, or is it just an 'OVER diagnosis' problem - a system clogged with people lead to believe they have pressing health issues when in fact they don't? When it comes to knowing what ails you, two heads aren't necessarily better than one. Maybe it's smarter to just trust the REAL doctor inside you.

Your Personal Google..

Posted by chad@rohlfsen.com on July 28, 2014 at 9:05 AM Comments comments (0)


How much stomach acid does it take to digest a cheeseburger? Or, how much calcium is needed to heal a broken leg? How about a fever, how high should it reach to fight a common cold? You don't need to surf Google for the answers, your INNATE search engine already knows.

 

If you doubt there's genius inside you, just consider this ñ the 50,000,000 cells in your body that will die while you read this sentenceÖ your innate intelligence knows how to replace every single one of them. The trillions of mental impulses coursing through your Nerve System at this momentÖ innate is moving them at speeds approaching 248 mile per hour. The number of heartbeats youíll get in your lifetimeÖ innate reserved around 3 billion for you.

 

Google may be the web's leading source for information, but it's got nothing over your innate intelligence when it comes to keeping you alive and well. Innate has solutions to just about any health challenge you have. All you have to do is search within to find the answer.
