My Chiropractor Visit

I attended a Health & Wellness Fair in Tehachapi, CA on 10/5/13 and visited a chiropractor's booth. His sign said: Dr. Robison will give you $5 if he can't find a weak muscle in your body. I went up to the table and said, you can keep your $5 because you'll find weakness in my arms. Though I've been going to the gym regularly for 6+ weeks, my true strength is in my lower half. I am working on the top half. My assumptions were correct so I booked an appointment to see him in my city. 

On the forms, I shared that I do not take any OTC or pharma meds but that I eat Juice Plus+ and take fish oil. I also shared with him that I'm a certified health coach and that I've been leading a 6-week #ctransc (Clean Transformation Challenge. See week 1, week 2, week 3, week 4, week 5, and week 6 posts for more information).

I met with him last week and he said I was his first patient that only had one bad spot in my back and that overall my back is very strong. To my surprise! My top half is coming along!! The arms, well, they're on their way. He adjusted my traps, clavicle, pecks, and sternum. He adjusted my right ankle and the top right of my back. He performed some muscle testing in addition to the "rack 'em and crack 'em."He said that he doesn't foresee me having to come back often that "I'll maintain very well" between adjustments. 

He said that I'm in good shape and that my ligaments are healthy and it's evidence of my clean eating and fitness.

More information about what we eat and how it affects the musculoskeletal system, see the Healthy Eating article about "the health of tendons and ligaments, and getting key nutrients to help keep tissues healthy and functional."
