I’ve logged a lot of hours at kids sports events. With a family that’s as active as ours, it’s only natural that our kids gravitate towards sports. The thing that often goes unnoticed is how rarely our kids miss a practice or game due to injury. Now that I’m working with developing athletes at a local sports academy I see all kinds of attitudes and approaches to injuries.  From the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” attitude to a totally preventative stance where the athlete doesn’t want to miss […]

This week I had the privilege of checking a new born, baby Samuel.  We found that the birth process had shifted one of the delicate vertebrae in his upper neck.  This was making it difficult for Samuel to feed on both sides while his mom was breast feeding. I gently moved that vertebrae back into proper alignment (over the course of a couple weeks) and now he is latching well, getting perfect nutrition and off to a great start.  Forward thinking parents are aware of the power of today’s chiropractic […]

Over a decade ago, Pistolese presented the results of a thorough chiropractic literature review that out of the 17 papers reviewed, 15 epileptic patients out of 15 reported positive outcomes resulting from subluxation-based chiropractic care (like what we do at lighthouse). Since his paper, several studies have been published documenting similar results.

Patients involved in a study experienced a significant lowering of both their systolic and diastolic blood pressure after receiving chiropractic adjustments.(1) That’s incredible news if you are one of the 19 out of 20 Canadian’s who are estimated to develop hypertension (high blood pressure) in their lifetime.(2) For those of you who have read my blog for a while you’ll know exactly why. Because the nervous system controls everything. Even blood pressure. Our family learned this first hand through my mom’s sky high blood pressure for over 9 years. Doctors […]
