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
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
Spinal Discs are a big topic these days; just ask your family members, I bet a few will tell you that they’ve had herniated or blown discs in their spine. While many people believe that Disc Injuries are some sort of life-sentence to be tortured periodically, emerging evidence is saying quite the contrary. As a matter of fact, pooled data from eleven studies suggests that 66% of non-surgically managed disc herniations actually heal. Surprisingly some of the most severe injuri
Rocking Healthy Living on Vans Warped Tour On Saturday, I had the privilege and pleasure of returning to Vans Warped Tour to supply services to the people who quite literally, keep the show on the road! Over the last few years this has become an annual meeting, and I’ve got to know a lot of people by seeing them year after year. Being on site always conjures up memories of attending the Warped Tour on long, sweltering, summer days in my youth. Back then, the tour stopped in A
Pregnancy and birth are probably the greatest example of how amazing we really are. I’ve been more, and more in complete and total awe of the miracle of life because my wife, Rebecca, is currently 17 weeks pregnant. Every week as we research what changes are occurring and how our baby is growing, I am reminded that embryological and fetal development occur way beyond our conscious control. No matter how much we manifest, plan, hope, dream, and wish we have zero control over g
Technology moves at an astounding rate; it seems as though each month there is a new App, an Update, or a Faster Better Device… However, as we chase the Next, Best, New thing we rarely stop to think about the toll that our bodies are incurring. What happens to our Eyes when we stare at the screen for too long? How does all the high definition movement stimulate our Brain? What type of changes are we going to see in our hands, wrists, and thumbs from typing? What about our Nec
Many of us understand that our children are our future, and most parents will do whatever is within their means to assure that their little ones have the greatest possible potential for success. At Hands On Health, we say that when it comes to getting checked for subluxations, kids are our MOST Important Clients! Let’s start at the beginning; we know that Subluxations form as the result of STRESS. But shouldn’t a child’s life be relatively stress-free? Even though our offspri
We strongly believe in making regular chiropractic care a sustainable investment in your future because it’s the same care that we recommend to our friends, families, and especially ourselves. As many of my clients know, I have been a Chiropractic client since birth, and continue to get checked weekly for subluxations to assure my continued development, and to moderate the effects of stress before issues arise. Some people find Chiropractic as a last resort, others as part of
Our bodies possess over 45 Miles of Nerves! We generally categorize them into 2 parts: our Central Nervous System, and our Peripheral Nervous System. The central Nervous System consists of our Brain and Spinal Cord both of which are so important that our bodies have surrounded them with bone for protection. Our Brain being encased within our skull, and our Spinal cord floating ever so gently down the center of our spine. Our Peripheral Nervous System consists of every other n
Terry Chimes, That’s What! “During my time in music, I saw how people’s health was determined by their lifestyle.” At age 19, Terry Chimes began playing music with Mick Jones and Paul Simonon, within a year they merged with Joe Strummer and Keith Levine to form The Clash, changing the course of Rock, Punk, and popular culture. However, it wasn’t until he was touring with Black Sabbath in 1987 that Terry was introduced to his lasting purpose; Chiropractic. Much like Dr. Tyler,
How may we," Express our Potential for Health?" When used as a Verb, "Express" may be defined as the ability to Show, Reveal, or Manifest. "Potential" is commonly defined as what is possible, or what something or someone is capable of being. As a Vitalistic Chiropractor I understand that most of us are born with the Potential to LIVE, and to do so in Health. In some ways the two go hand in hand; the healthier we are, the more we may be able to live our lives. Believe it or no
One of the most common questions that we hear is, When should I get Adjusted? The answer may vary from person to person, but like most things, Chiropractic is best used regularly. During any given day we experience a multitude of Stresses, some BIG and others little. While certain stresses may affect us physically others affect us mentally or chemically. Regardless of the Size and Domain of the Stress, the Innate Intelligence of our body always reacts as appropriately as poss
