Continually wearing the wrong items, such as a heavy backpack or bag on one shoulder, can cause injury to your health.

You probably wouldn't connect getting ill with what you wear, but perhaps you should. When it comes to being healthy, you probably don't give your clothes or accessories a second thought. The reality is that what you wear or carry could play a crucial role in your health, even making you ill if you continually wear the wrong items, such as a heavy backpack or bag. Clothing fit is also an important consideration for health.  Clothes or accessories that are too tight can constrict blood flow, reduce your range of motion and cause discomfort.

From your head to your toes, what you put on your body on a daily basis needs to be considered for total wellness.  Below are some of our recommendations for back saving wear.

  • "Great chiropractor. Helps put me back in place and gives me tips on how to alleviate symptoms (stretching, etc.) at home. Even though my company changed insurance plans and he's now out of my network, I still go to him. I trust his ability to fix what ails me!"
    Victoria K.
  • "Great guy. Really knows what he is talking about. I was involved in a motorcycle accident and he fixed me right up!"

  • "My first experience with a chiropractor was my first visit to Dr. Peter’s office. I was in severe pain. A nerve was hurting from my right buttocks down my right leg to my ankle Dr. Peter told me after x-rays and examination that I had subluxations that need to be corrected. After four adjustments, I could walk without pain and I was able to get a good night’s sleep.

    I recommend Dr. Peter, his services and his wonderful staff to anyone needing corrective treatment."
    George P.
  • "I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Greg Peter. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received."

  • "As a court reporter, using my hands to type on a daily basis is a requirement. The work is speedy and can often last for hours at a time. Several months ago, every movement I made became excruciatingly painful. I started seeing Dr. Greg Peter and got started on a program that helped right away. The doctor stressed the importance of my posture and proper hand and arm placement."

  • Staying Well In Winter

    Simon and Garfunkel [and later, The Bangles] had it right. Winter light is hazy - it's more diffuse. The sun is lower in the sky and the sun's rays reach the Earth at an angle, losing much of their power. And of course, there's less sunlight during each 24-hour day of winter than during the rest of the ...
