October is National Spinal Health Month –

Dr. Allen Helping to Turn the Tide

Strong back photo Back pain is pervasive among American adults, but a new and disturbing trend is emerging among the nation's youth. Young children are suffering from back pain much earlier, mostly due to a combination of overweight back packs, poorly designed computer workstations, and lack of exercise. The situation is epidemic. As a community service this October during National Spinal Health Month in association with the American Chiropractic Association, Dr. Allen will be visiting schools and community groups teaching children, parents, teachers and school administrators how to take steps to help stop this trend. Call Dr. Allen today to arrange a free 15 to 30 minute talk and demonstration on posture, ergonomics and/or backpacks for your family, your child's school or your community group.

Myra Perala Stands Tall – Again!

Myra before photo Myra after photo

Long-time patient Myra Perala has had her share of tough times, including a fall that required orthopedic surgery for her leg, but her spirit is strong. She always kept telling me that she would stand tall again. Well, it took several months of work to loosen her psoas muscle with a special myofascial release technique to achieve the results you see in these posture photographs. Now in the rebuilding stage, Myra continues to get regular chiropractic care and do her stretches and exercises at the Y. "I go to Dr. Allen because I am pleased with his healing hands. He knows what to do. His advice is pragmatic and valuable. He's helped me so much." Thanks, Myra.
