Our thoughts on COVID-19 As always, the wellbeing of you and your family is our highest priority at Hands On Health Chiropractic. We continue to follow and apply health and safety regulations, regardless of season or sickness. This is how we ensure that our practice members can trust us, not only for principled chiropractic adjustments, but for the office environment. We wanted to detail some of our sanitation and cleaning measures for you, as we all try to make wise, positiv
Every few seconds in every day of our lifetime, tens of billions of sensory messages travel as electrochemical impulses along the slender branches of the human nerve system. They make their way to communication headquarters in the Central Nervous System; the Brain, and Spinal Cord. Fifty to One Hundred Billion nerve cells, or neurons act as information specialists. Each receive a message on branching arms called dendrites and send signals via a single nerve fiber, or axon. Th
From Chiropractic, Amazing Isn’t it? From our human perspective, we are blind to vast reaches of reality. Mysteries lie all around us, even within us. Just as a journey to the moon may show us the daintiness of our planet, a venture into the miniscule can be a true voyage of discovery. An exploration of the Human System should probably start with the nerve system, for that great mass of cells and fibers contain the pathways which determine what is uniquely Human in our nature
To start, lets come up with some sort of definition for Health. Many of you have heard me say, “I think Health is best used like a unit of measure to describe how well we’re living, or more specifically how well we’re expressing our potential for Life.” After all, from the time of conception we have the potential to Live, if things go well, we express that potential by continuing to live. The Healthier we are, the better we live, right? What is a Healthy (ie: efficient, livin
A number of weeks ago I ran across this article from the New York Times, and was pretty happy to find that their conclusions found over the counter Cough Syrup to be completely ineffective for stopping coughs, and in many cases dangerous to young children. I was even happier to see them find that Honey, is in fact, MORE Effective than over the counter cough medications! I believe that we can benefit from using the Chiropractic perspective to expand upon this discussion a litt
It’s hard to believe that in 2018, with all of our advancements in technology and science we’re still attributing our seasonal fluctuations in health to obscure events, bad luck, or the belief that “something must be going around.” You and I have never “Caught” a cold, nor has a BUG ever been so pervasive that a Healthy-Body just becomes over-run by a “trojan-horse” of germs which it encounters every day. To be honest, Cold-Viruses are as common as the air we breathe; as a ma
As parents, we only want to absolute best for our children. That why at Hands On Health Chiropractic in Brick, NJ, we emphasize the importance of children getting regular Chiropractic adjustments, regardless of pain or symptoms. Why? Because when a child’s nervous system is free and clear of interference, their body and brain functions at their best! This can mean better sleep, improved moods, and strengthened immunity, too just name a few. (Remember, the central nervous syst
At Hands On Health Chiropractic in Brick, NJ, the care we provide is incredibly specific; both in its application and the sense that every-body’s care is unique to the individual. Each and every one of our spines are unique because they develop as the direct result of everything we’ve ever experienced; strengths, traumas, stress, repetition, patterns, and even our emotions. If no two spines are the same, then it only makes sense that no two people can receive the same adjustm
Historically, the title of Doctor has been synonymous with the role of a teacher, and in practice, the Doctor of Chiropractic is not simply a practitioner, but also responsible for sharing the Chiropractic Philosophy of Health and Life. While I believe everyone is entitled to use Chiropractic in the manner which they deem most appropriate, experience has shown me that a little information can go a long way. Personally, I value understanding at my core because it builds knowle
…But just how your Life will change is entirely of up to you. Many people seek Chiropractic based on a need for relief when they’ve become overwhelmed by the effects of Stress, or when they desire to regain their Health because Life isn’t as full as they’d like it to be. Stress is more consistent and persistent in our lives than ever and will overload any system; a stick will bend and twist until it suddenly snaps, and we Adapt (bend) to continue Living until we, proverbially
It happens to us all whether we're kids on the playground, or presenting to our peers at work. Inevitably, stress has the ability to shape how we feel, and more importantly who we grow into. Whether we experience a physical trauma which may leave us scarred or even disfigured our exposure to mental and emotional trauma has the ability to produce effects that last just as long.
Fortunately, the moments that create lasting impressions on our brain can be positive ones as wel
Anyone who has ever eaten an aspirin certainly knows that there is a big difference between pain relief and being healthy enough to promote true healing. Even though painkillers may help you "feel better" it is widely understood that this relief does not necessarily mean anything has been cured or that any healing has actually taken place.
I am continually astounded by how many people truly believe their various drugs and conventional approaches have performed some type of
Since its inception in 1895, chiropractic has championed a unique philosophy of health and healing; a paradigm emphasizing the body’s innate potential for Health anchored by a practice designed to facilitate the expression this potential. Let’s take a look and see how chiropractic compares with some of America’s most popular approaches to better health. Exploring Your Options Conventional Medicine - Most often we seek Health Care when we’re hurt or sick. Therefore, much of co
Many of us celebrate the New Year as a time for a fresh start, a new beginning; perhaps a chance to reformulate previous ideas and create new goals to manifest our desires for the future. Whether we're looking to lose a few pounds, start a business, or simply give thanks for that which we have; keeping ourselves CLEAR and CONNECTED with Regular Chiropractic care will help in more ways than one.
We all live with stress in our day to day lives, that's no secret. Unfortunately
I recently had the opportunity to share Hands On Health Chiropractic’s vision for health and healing with our local Rotary Club of Brick, NJ, and in addition to meeting a bunch of great individuals involved in some awesome services to our community it also got me thinking. Why is that Chiropractors are so ready and willing to get out and tell people about their service? We Share Chiropractic because it is not a commodity. Everyone has a dentist and an eye doctor, but many peo
Our greatest compliment comes when our existing clients share our vision for Health and Healing with those whom they know and love. 1. Life is Stressful…
During the holidays we double down. Getting adjusted regularly allows us to counteract the effects of stress before they get you down! 2. Chiropractic Keeps Us Healthy
The flu is not a season, it’s an inability to adapt to the things we’re exposed to. During the holidays we become increasingly susceptible because we’re ove
Getting adjusted can be a lot like becoming a parent. For first-timers there’s a whole bunch of unknowns; What will it be like? How am I going to cope? What’s this going to cost? Will it hurt? How will I know what to do? Well, while one hurts more than the other, both are really all about LIFE! The transition into parenthood comes as we welcome a new, vital little life into our own. In an instant, we too become reborn; not as children but as parents. Beholding a new life is t
We enter this world pre-paired with everything we need to be Healthy. Most simply put, the objective of non-therapeutic Chiropractic Care is the removal of interference and preservation of each and every-body’s Innate Potential for Health, Healing, and Living. As a result, many people have positive experiences as countless conditions, syndromes, and ailments Heal from the inside out. When I read testimonials from people whose sex lives return after beginning Chiropractic Care
In the Chiropractic context, we talk about “Being Clear” a lot. We strive to keep our spine Clear so our Nervous System may remain Clear, and Free from the interference which affects the way our body innately functions. We know that interference may affect how we Feel because a compressed nerve results in a characteristically unpleasant experience, but the ramifications are Far LARGER. Interference changes the way that we express our potential for living! It changes the way w
