Small Exercises You Can Do While Sitting At Work

Many of us have to work a 9-5 job where finding time to exercise is nearly impossible. With the weather changing to wet and rainy, the sun only making a few appearances and the days getting shorter and shorter, our mental and physical self take a hit. However, these changes are usually when our body and mind usually need exercise the most.

What exactly is the the "pop" you hear when getting adjusted?

If you have been adjusted before, you are familiar with the usual popping or cracking sound that sometimes happens. Many people ask me what that sound is, guessing that the bones are rubbing together or its the sound of a bone popping back into place. However, what is actually occurring is something much more simple.

We might not automatically consider booking an appointment with a chiropractor for the treatment of period cramps, infertility or other women's health conditions.  The fact is, most conditions affecting the uterus are due to a lack of blood flow causing stagnation of blood and sometimes pain.
