HPC Checkup Show – Episode 5

 COVID Spike, St. Louis County, & What We Should Be Talking About

Welcome Back Patient Family,

*** Trigger Alert – This Post is all about COVID ***

November has been quite a month. We have seen a close election that has yet to be decided and a major spike in COVID-19. Restrictions and regulations are coming very soon as is the cold and flu season and major gathering holidays. So… it’s gettin’ kinda hectic!

This, the 5th edition of the HPC Checkup Show, discusses the following topics:

  • Civil political discourse in the Office and at Home
  • St. Louis County announcements and Dr. Garza’s statements
  • Masks and other factors that help control COVID spread
  • Statistics that are referenced vs. What we should be talking about
  • ICU bed utilization across the state
  • Who is driving the spike and why the spike has occured

I truly hope you get something from this show. It does cover a lot of politics, but I see a responsibility to bring back civil discourse and acceptance of differing view points with high levels of respect.

Let’s get through the end of this terrible year in a manner that we can accelerate back to normalcy in 2021.

Good Luck and #keepmoving


HPC Checkup Show – Episode 4

Big Wins, Kindness, & Results Over Time

Hey Patient Family,

I’m sure you all stayed up last night to see the big announcement, right? The thing that will change our country? The huge shift in what has been to what needs to be?

If you’re anything like me, I know you relished in the fact that Notre Dame beat Clemson in double overtime. With Clemson’s last ditch effort to regain the lead failing, Notre Dame secured itself as the overall winner and new leader of the college football standings. What could be more important? (Nothing?… yes, that is correct)

I think something else happened, but I didn’t catch it. Overcoming severe frustration, I was able to get the channel shifted from NBC to the USA network that continued coverage of the game. How dare anyone come between me and college football – ridiculous!

Okay, okay, I’m kidding. There will be new leadership in this country and HPC is excited to be a part of mending the country’s wounds. Everyone is entitled to their beliefs as well as basic respect. I’m excited to be a part of healing a divided country, as well as healing the community’s aches and pains.

This week’s show discusses a patient who maintained the concepts that we teach even though she was away from the office. When a new pain arose (KNEE PAIN), she responded with incredible speed because she maintained practicing what she had learned.

We aren’t the rainbow, butterfly, unicorn office. We are the office that gets into the trenches together to understand our joints, muscles, postures, and movements. Doing so not only produces consistent results, but sustains them over time!

Enjoy the Show and #keepmoving
