Helping people express their optimal LIFE makes my “job” so much fun. I laugh at least once a day because you make me smile. Thank you for sharing your awesome life with me.

Innate has left the building


One of the not so obvious, yet fundamental differences between the practice of medicine and the practice of chiropractic is that one spends most of its time dealing with death and disease, while the other, the full expression of Life. 

 The MD mostly spends his or her time on diagnosis, treatment, sickness, convalescence and eventually hospice - the states which arise from the suppression of innate Life force.  Whereas the DC (doctor of chiropractic) focuses his or her time on analysis, adjustment, vitality and vivification - the states which arise from the full expression of innate Life force.  Here's an astute observation... when you focus MORE attention on the later, the need for the former reduces. 

This is what Chiropractors believe TRUE health care is, as opposed to the SICK and DYING CARE we spend trillions on today.  How much better off would we all be if more time was spent keeping innate happy, fully flowing in her house, instead of treating the ruin that results from her absence.

Clarks Power Problem


Clark Griswold stands with bated breath and extension cord in hand as a childlike giddiness overtakes him.  The family drum roll commences, he makes the anticipated electrical connection and VOILA... nothing happens.


Clark has a power problem.  Although the extension cords are all connected and each individual Christmas light has been inspected with precision, he's still not connected to the source.  It isn't until his wife 'adjusts' the switch in the garage and turns the MAIN Power on that the light show begins.  She'd actually make a good Chiropractor!

If your wiring is connected and your body parts have all been dutifully inspected by the best doctors in the world, you still won't function to your potential if you're not connected 100% to your source... the Life sustaining Power that flows from your Nerve System.  Make sure you and your family stay connected to it with regular Chiropractic care during this bustling holiday season.

ADIO explanation

Posted: December 17, 2015
By: Dr Stephanie O'Brien

I thought you might like an explanation about ADIO.

ADIO is an acronym used in Chiropractic to describe the direction of the flow of LIFE from:


Above - from your brain

Down -  your spinal cord

* Inside - your nerve system

Out - to every cell in your body.


Chiropractic first because…you were a nerve before you had a heartbeat!


Forget someone at Home?

It is truly an honor when you allow me to check your children for vertebral subluxations. Thank you so much for trusting me to help you and your precious loved ones support their health!Forget Someone at Home?

Chiropractor - “Hey Mary, where are your kids?” Mary - “I left them at home, they don’t have any back pain…” Chiropractor - “That might be true, but do they have Subluxations?”

Studies show that stress from the birth process alone is enough to produce pediatric Subluxations – subtle, yet significant vetebral misalignments which alter normal nerve function in children. And don't forget the stress they experience from falling off bikes, rough housing with siblings or just trying to fit in at school. Kids are inherently Subluxation prone!

If you bring your kids to the dentist for preventative maintenance as soon as they get teeth, it only makes sense you bring them to the Chiropractor as soon as they get a spine. In other words, don’t leave them at home… get them checked EARLY and REGULARLY for Subluxations. You’re investing in their health and their future when you do.

IHealth frenzie


Thanksgiving is over, so let the shopping stress begin!  Millions of people worldwide will spend the next several weeks in a buying frenzy - determined to secure the perfect gift for a rock bottom price, all while sacrificing their health and their sanity in the process.

According to a 2006 Greenburg Quinlin Rosner Research survey 'people in the United States are more likely to feel their stress increases rather than decreases during the holidays' citing, 'the holidays can be a hectic time for many, and a lack of money, a lack of time, and the hype and commercialism' is the cause of it all.  No doubt the self induced stress of Black Friday and Cyber Monday can lead to Subluxation Tuesday.

The antidote - Don't stress over finding the right present; instead, try BEING present.  The greatest gift of all is the innate intelligence within you and a stress free nerve system to express it.  Don't let this year's must have item steal your peace and healthiness.  Get adjusted, get your power turned on and focus on the real reason for the season.

Wishing you an ADIO Thanksgiving!

Posted: November 23, 2015
By: Dr Stephanie O'Brien

ADIO , if you are not aware, is an acronym which means, “Above, Down; Inside, Out”. Life flows from above (from the brain or God/The Universe); down the spinal cord, and then from the spinal nerves, out to every cell in your body. This is why you do not find me trying to “sell” you anything “Outside - In” in this office. For anything outside in to affect your expression of Life, your “Power” must first be at optimal expression from the Inside-Out! This Thanksgiving, you will be animating the delicious food you eat; the food does not animate you. Happy Thanksgiving!

Grateful for the power


It's Thanksgiving time, and in staying with custom, we'd like to share with you a few things we are truly grateful for this year.  Here's a short list...

We're thankful for Subluxatation free spines, mobile joints and healthy sagital curves.  Supple muscles with elastic flexibility.  Unimpeded nerve systems, through which the gift of innate intelligence flows, coordinating all the functions that sustain Life.  An abundance of eager referrals, standing room only orientations and miracle testimonials.  We're especially grateful for our Principle, and the many lives that have been saved by its faithful application.

But most of all we're thankful for all our patients, staff and ChiropracTIC fanatics worldwide who, through their trust and unrelenting desire to advance Life, have come to appreciate these things as well.   Our practice is nothing without you - our Chiropractic family.  Have a blessed Thanksgiving, above down, inside and out.

Healing is like the stock market. It never progresses in a straight line. You’ve got to expect some ups and downs along the way.

You might experience a surge of relief when you first start your Chiropractic care only to be followed by a setback. Soon you’re back on track, seeing huge improvements. Progress continues with bouts of highs and lows, and you may even experience a plateau or dip in your improvements. But don’t make the mistake of ‘pulling out of the market’ early.

Keep the big picture in mind. Like stocks, the gains in Chiropractic care are best seen over time. When you look back and see how far you’ve come since your first visit, you’ll realize the LIFE dividends are paying off.
