People frequently inquire about which vitamin supplements they should take, given the abundance of options available in grocery stores, pharmacies, health food shops, and even gas stations. While the adage "your food should be your vitamins" has long been touted, the reality is that modern food processing, bleaching, overcooking, and intensive farming practices have led to a depletion of essential nutrients in our food, making it challenging to attain adequate levels of vitamins and minerals from diet alone ..read more

Golf is a beloved pastime for many Americans, with nearly 25 million hitting the greens in 2020, making up about 8 percent of the U.S. population.

Many times, patients come to the office thinking that just one crack and they'll be good, and they don't need to return. While that's an interesting thought, that is just not how the body usually works. Even if you chose to take some level of medication, the prescription usually requires you to take it every 4 to 6 hours or so until the symptoms subside. Advertising bombards us with a belief that if we take a pill that holds the answer to long-term back pain relief, when in reality, you're going to need to take it more than just one time ..read more

Grade school was a very difficult time for me in many ways. I struggled in math and language arts and generally had trouble with test taking, especially the big annual standardized tests that measured academic progress and overall class rank. I didn’t think I was smart. It took a lot of hard work for me to get through just grade school and high school with mostly C’s and high B’s. The only courses I was good at were art and health.

Is my baby too young to be adjusted?
Sheppard Chiropractic Blog
by Dr. Joseph Sheppard
5M ago
This is a very common question that I do get asked, especially with newborn babies. The birth process can be very stressful, not only on the mother but the baby also. During the delivery process, sometimes there can be difficulty which can cause injuries to the very upper neck, upper back and shoulder regions of newborns. With some forceps and suction deliveries, this injures and strains the upper neck region in an infant which can cause muscle spasm, sometimes called torticollis and some complications after delivery ..read more
