Are You Walking Around Unconsious?

We interest with people each day and are often forget that these people are on a similar journey, have similar challenges, and just want to be loved and appreciated like you.

This short video discusses how we can stay conscious, despite the day to day.

What’s Your Problem?

Many people think that their problem is the pain they feel. In fact many of us will go on ignoring our pain until that pain finally interferes with something we need or love and we finally take action on it.

But pain itself is not the problem. Pain is not a condition to be treated, although I just had a patient start in the office “diagnosed” with chronic neck pain. Chronic neck pain is not a condition, no pain is a condition, it is merely a symptom. It is a signal.

Just like the sound of your smoke detector is not a problem, it is a signal. If you turn off the smoke detector you have not solved anything all you did was turn off the signal.

Symptoms are not the first thing to show up when something is malfunctioning. Pain shows up when we exceed our are ability to adapt to the malfunction.

So when someone presents to our office in pain, we understand that you have hit your limit and it is impacting your ability to live your best life but we don’t want to focus on it.

Our goal is not to get rid of your pain. We don’t want to turn off your signal, numb your body, or say to your feedback system that we don’t care what you are telling us. What we want to do is respect that pain for what it is. Your body’s alarm system that something is malfunctioning.

From there we want to move forward and restore normal function to the body and help you understand the basic fundamentals you need to live your best life.

Enjoy this New Book for the Holidays

Dr. Nancy is featured in a new book!

20 laugh-out-loud-funny moms describe their pregnancies, revealing the secretly-guarded details of their conceptions, the great and gross about pregnancy, the truth about childbirth and how their life changed once their little womb-hijacker finally came out.

From the book: I was 15 when my doctor told me, “Rachael, you will never have children.” I grew up thinking that I was going to be a lonely spinster with cats because my uterus was too scarred. (Rachael Miller); I gave birth to all three of my sons in the same hospital with the exact same anesthesiologist, whom they are all named after. (J.S.); Before kids, my husband would fill the tub with bubbles and wash my hair to get me in the mood. But after kids? Well, now my husband fills up the sink with bubbles and washes the dishes to get me in the mood. (Susie Johnson); Enjoy the stories of Becky Rappoccio, Christine Corbridge, Crystal Clancy, De’Vonne Batts, Erin Cohen, Hillary Chybinski, J.S., Julie Weckerlein, Louise Gleeson, Mandi Welbaum, Ellie Hirsch, Nancy Salgueiro, Nicole Keck, Rachael Miller, Rani Shah, Steph Calvert, Susie Johnson, Tat and Alinka Rutkowska. They’ve been pregnant more than 50 times in total and they sure do know what they are talking about, or rather writing about as all of them are bloggers and have been entertaining their readers for years. They will make you laugh, they will make you sigh, they will make you think and some might even make you cry! Get to know them one by one and follow their blogs after the read – it sure is an exciting one as many details have never been released before! No two stories are the same – we have different nationalities, different backgrounds, different number of children, different approaches to life. What the ladies do have in common is the ability to sit back, reflect and laugh. Not only that – as busy as they are, they managed to find the time to share the details of their conception, pregnancy, childbirth and the brand new life a.c. (after child).
