2018: The Year of the Mind

By | Self-Help, Wellness | No Comments

This year I have decided to dedicate myself to developing my mind. Thus, I have dubbed 2018 “The Year of the Mind.” I’ve never done a New Year’s resolution and don’t necessarily consider this to be that. Developing my mind beyond anything I ever thought possible will be my focus this year and will continue long after this year. I have spent time developing my mind in the past, but not to the level I’m planning on this year. I welcome those who wish to join me with all or some of the things I’m doing below. Being an osteopathic…

“Can You Help Me Avoid A C-section?”

By | Osteopathy, Wellness | No Comments

“My baby has been sitting sideways and my due date is in two weeks. I will have to have a c-section unless the baby changes its position by tomorrow when I have an ultrasound. I want to deliver naturally. Can you help me?” asked Melanie. “I’ve been successful in the past, but I never know honestly.” I replied. I did not want to create unreasonable expectations. Melanie was a friend of one of the staff at the office I’m at. She came upon recommendation seeking osteopathic treatment to see if I could help reposition her baby correctly so she could…

The Most Compelling Reason To Heal Your Trauma Down To The DNA

By | Osteopathy, Wellness | 2 Comments

What if we looked at cultivating our health differently? What if we were more proactive in cultivating both physical and mental health? It might surprise you how that could change not just you, but your family in the present and the future. Many patients who have had quality osteopathic treatments, myself included, describe feeling like their body is being unwound. They describe feeling lighter and looser. Movement becomes easier and more efficient. Sometimes patients describe feeling a natural high as endorphins are released. Over time, some patients start to understand and experience how this unwinding has an effect on their…

You’ll Never Guess How This Distressed Woman’s Back Pain Was Resolved

By | Osteopathy, Wellness | No Comments

As much as we know about the human body, there are still plenty of mysteries with how it works. Consider Aubrey’s story. She was an osteopathic medical student who came and spent four weeks with me a few years ago. As we got to talking, I learned that she had had right upper back pain for years. During her training, she had sought relief from other osteopaths and chiropractors. Mostly, they had tried to “pop” her back. It never worked. Up to this point, no one had had success with providing relief there. I was not certain if I would…

What Happened When the Granddaughter of Chiropractors Tried Osteopathy for Neck Pain?

By | Osteopathy, Wellness | No Comments

“Yes, yes, yes,” moaned Kristy out loud, “That spot had been there for years… That feels so much better. That was amazing!” She paused for a moment to catch her breath, “Do I have to get up? Can I lay here a while?” “No, you can lay there for a bit. Perhaps I should have bought you dinner before the treatment.” I joked. About an hour before Kristy walked into my office with a really stiff neck. Having trouble moving with range of motion, she was in pain. She thought maybe it started a few days before she slept on…

Mom In Severe Pelvic Pain Unable To Find Help Elsewhere Tried Osteopathic Treatment and This Is Her Story

By | Osteopathy, Wellness | No Comments

When I met Carol, she came to me because she had low back pain and pelvic pain. When I say pain, I’m not talking like “ouch” my back and pelvis hurts. I’m talking like “every time that I walk, move, or do anything it feels like my pelvic bones are going to rip through my skin and like my insides are going to tear” kind of pain. The pain would pierce from her low back, through her pelvis, and continue into her right thigh. Pain is a very common complaint these days and it is becoming increasingly clearer with prescription…

Our baby couldn’t drink from a bottle so we set her up for a frenectomy – Here’s what happened:

By | Osteopathy, Wellness | No Comments

At 8 weeks old, my daughter was about to have her tongue tie released. Up to that point, she had been having trouble with breastfeeding, but we decided to make an appointment because she could not drink out of a bottle when my wife returned to work. I watched her latch on in the procedure room right before having it done. Did we make the right choice? The tongue is a very unique and complex structure in the body. It is the only muscle with a freely moveable end. Interestingly, it works more like the tentacles of an octopus rather…

Probiotics Where? Surprising Places You Need Probiotics and Aren’t Getting Them

By | Nutrition, Wellness | No Comments

Many of us know take probiotics for gut health, but there’s other places where they are also important for our health you may not have thought of. The emerging science on the flora in our gut is showing that the “microbiome” of our gut is far more important than we previously realized. The bacteria present in our gut helps with digestion, but much more than that. On top of that, the bacteria in our gut are involved with our personalities, moods, regulating inflammation and our immune system, preventing and fighting infections, and more. The balanced diversity of the bacteria is…

Why Do Our Physicians And Athletic Trainers Work So Well Together?

By | Osteopathy, Wellness | No Comments

Here at OIM, our physicians work with our patients to help find their way back to ‘neutral’, through balancing the body with a variety of Osteopathic Manipulative Techniques (OMT). However, once achieved, that is where the Athletic Trainers role comes into play at OIM. The AT works to help the patient ‘maintain’ the balance achieved in the osteopathic treatment. To give a little bit of background information about Athletic Trainers, people often confuse AT’s with Personal/Fitness Trainers, or with Physical Therapists. Athletic Trainers are their own profession, which does overlap with both of those professions. The education and training of…
