Cancer Hits more than the Body. It Hits the Entire Family

Hello Patient Family,

We are creeping in on the holidays with today being Halloween. I don’t have to tell you what that means for emotional and financial stress. But imagine if you had cancer – didn’t have the best insurance – only got paid when you showed up to work – and lived 20 miles from the treatment center. What would your holidays look like? What would after the holidays look like.

A friend of mine, Ceroma Love (known as “Doc”), knows this reality all too well. He is a cancer survivor himself and recently lost his wife to cancer this past February. He started the Be the Light Foundation to help families with the financial impact of cancer that occurs “beyond” the hospital walls. To understand more, watch the 2 minute video (I promise its short :-)). If you want to make a difference, head to the bottom of the post to register for the run/walk or donate directly.

The 5K/10K/Fun Run-Walk is this coming Saturday, November 6 with proceeds going to the foundation. The link to register can be found by clicking HERE.

If you aren’t in the St. Louis Area but still want to give, you can donate the foundation directly by clicking HERE.

Thank you for your concern and generosity! May you have a blessed holiday season.

Good Luck and #keepmoving

Success Story – Knee Pain

Pain Hits Us at All Ages. Recovery Can be the Same

The data is very clear – Knee Pain will affect many of us at many different times of our life.

What is also clear, and definitely at Health & Performance Center, recovery from knee pain is also possible at all time regardless of age.

This video discusses the success of an HPC patient who not only put in the work to feel better, but more importantly to understand the issue and attack it. He isn’t just doing his workouts again, he is doing them better and has a greater understanding of how to keep it going.

Congrats to this patient and all the patients who put in the work to “OWN” the results.

Good Luck and #keepmoving

Knee Pain – A Real Solution

Research is clear in showing that Adjustments are critical to improvements

Hello Friends,

Recent research has shown that adjustments to the mid-spine are more effective at treating knee pain than focused exercises at the knee joint itself.

While this may seem strange, when you understand what is happening when we restore balance and symmetry to the rib cage and pelvis it makes perfect sense. Long story short, when the mid-spine (rib cage) is reset to balance with the pelvis, we have a strong and stable core. When we have a strong and stable core, we can use the Hip more efficiently and reduce over-use, stress, strain, and shear to the knee.

Ok, that wasn’t so short, but you still get the idea that a balanced and symmetrical system leads to a knee that doesn’t get over-used. Things that don’t get over-used stay happy!

At HPC we do both Chiropractic Adjustments and Rehab Exercise. It’s probably why our patients are so happy. We treat the pain “AND” the cause. Enjoy the video for further explanation and a go-to exercise to help with knee pain!

Good Luck and #keepmoving
