We are always actively hosting health classes and talks in our office and in the community. And we have to admit, it’s not always easy to go against the grain of a medical system that is modeled after sick-care— a system that waits for you to be sick before any action is taken. And majority of the time, the action involves taking medication. •
Simply focusing on chronic pain and opioid usage in our country: There’s a big problem when the U.S. is the largest prescriber of pain killers in the world with a standard daily dose per million people of 50,000. The U.S. makes up just 4 percent of the world’s population. However, it accounts for nearly 30 PERCENT of the world’s drug overdose deaths. Roughly half of these deaths can be attributed to prescription drug use. And despite the the major use of prescription and over-the-counter medication, the U.S. is just ranked 37th with quality of health care.
Don’t get us wrong, there is definitely a time and place when medication is necessary. But what if there’s more that you can still do to enhance your quality of life? Or if you are receiving medical care, what if you can enhance your healing potential in the process and not become dependent on your therapy?
We know that it may be easier to take a pill to relieve the pain and discomfort, rather than spend time making regular visits to chiropractor. But consider this analogy: Would you rather we feed you a fish or to teach you how to fish? •
We focus on education, we empower you with lifestyle tools, and we deliver chiropractic adjustments because we want to address the source of the issue. We get that people coming into our office are struggling and in pain. And we are here to listen. However, we don’t focus on sick care. We focus on Vibrant Healthcare. The thing is, this model is not for everyone because it means you are going to have to take responsibility and take charge of your health. You are going to have to devote time & energy to move beyond where you are at in life. We are ready to team up with the right people who are in it to thrive! ❤️ Drs. Sam & Lynn

My lovely client after only for BBL treatment.
What is BBL treatment: BBL technology minimises the number and intensity of discoloured blemishes on the skin and ultimately makes skin more uniform in tone. It can treat age spot, small facial veins, rosacea, freckles and brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, and even acne.
Your skin will be smoother and more vibrant, and it will have a more youthful appearance as a result. A painless treatment, most after described as a shot of heat that dissipates immediately after. There is absolutely no downtime and patients may return to daily activities immediately after. #bbltreatment#youngerskin#youthfulskin#antiwrinkle#livingyourlifehappy#painfree call or DM me for more information.

Chris is without a doubt a strong guy. But persistent shoulder pain was causing him problems working in a physical job and training in martial arts. A strength assessment also showed he had weakness in his thoracic extension which was limiting his joint mobility and body mechanics. This is an ANNOYING combination which results in muscle compensation and limits overall strength and balance.
Shoulder pain is a common problem and too often we don't realise it could be due to other areas of the body. Without doing so, it only causes more damage and limit our strength in the long run. The combination of thoracic issues was compounding this for Chris, so we came up with exercise to help him. This thoracic row forces Chris to drive extension with this area of the body FIRST before using the rhomboids and middle trapezoids. The result? More strength, and much less pain in the shoulders.
This exercise has been great for Chris by reducing pain and discomfort around his shoulders and increasing his strength around his thoracic. We've been super impressed by his hard work and commitment to overcoming, rather than accepting, muscle pain and mobility issues.

🛏 According to a recent Huffington Post article by Catherine Pearson, “Sleep is a major problem for many Americans, according to a new report that acts as a kind of “state-of-insomnia” in the U.S. The review, published online by the medical journal The Lancet, finds that nearly a quarter of adults are unhappy with their sleep patterns, while up to 10 percent meet the criteria for full-fledged insomnia — putting them at a greater risk for depression, hypertension and diabetes.” It’s easy to joke about this issue... but it’s no joke. Why do so many of us have trouble falling asleep or sleeping through the night? Some say it’s our stress-filled lifestyles. Some say it’s a by-product of anxiety. Some say we’ve become dependent on alcohol or over-the-counter drugs to help us sleep. The truth is, using these crutches may actually interfere with the deep “REM” sleep that we all need for rest and recuperation.
CTFO’s Sleep Support Oral Spray uses a combination of CBD and Melatonin to help you fall asleep naturally and without drugs or alcohol. Both of these natural ingredients have been shown to relax you and help you fall asleep. Some of our customers even say the CBD drops alone help them fall asleep.
With better quality sleep, we can all have more peaceful nights and better overall health.
You deserve a good night’s rest! Melatonin, a naturally occurring hormone in the brain, is released to promote sleep at night. Unfortunately, as we age environmental factors such as artificial light reduce the Melatonin our bodies are able to produce, resulting in lack of sleep. Our Sleep Support Oral Spray is combined with a special blend of CBD, Melatonin, & nutrients to help promote long and restful sleep. This product is great for those with difficulty falling asleep!

Check out what Jennifer Haas has to say about Ease! "I wanted to share with you all the impact that Ease has had on my life personally! I have had chronic back pain my entire life. I had major back surgery when I was 17 and have been on some type of prescription pain medication since then. I am considered legally handicap and I have the tag in my car to prove it. Last year I had an injury to my back and I could not walk for over a week, my doctor said I was going to have to have another surgery and I really did not want that. The only way I could make it through a day was to take massive amounts of prescription pain medication which is not good for you. I had been using Plexus (Slim, ProBio5 and Biocleanse) at the time for a few months and had heard about Ease, but I had not tried it yet. I figured I had nothing to lose so I gave it a shot. I started by taking the power doses of 2 Ease three times a day for the first month. It took a couple of weeks to really see true results, like I said I had serious issues....but, after that first month I no longer needed any pain medications, even over the counter. The only thing I have taken in the last 6 months to manage my pain is Plexus Ease, and I take 2 a day.
I cannot believe that this supplement has done so much to change my life! I am so grateful for this product and I share with everyone how much it has helped me. I am a better mom, wife, friend and teacher now because of Plexus Ease💕. I can play with my kids, take care of the chores, jump around and be silly with my students and not have pain. It's amazing!
This past summer I was supposed to be in the operating room having back surgery, but instead I was snorkeling with my husband in the Dominican Republic and I was walking for miles exploring Universal Studios and Hollywood with my oldest son! This product has been LIFE CHANGING for me and I will FOREVER be so grateful for it "🙏 #TestimonyTuesday#painfree#naturalhealth

Migranes - The kind of pain that can leave you dysfunctional.
For those that experience migranes, putting the pain into words is usually impossible. Also, using a migrane as a headache synonym can be quite upsetting. Real migranes often leave u dysfunctional, unable to sleep, eat, look at light or even breathe. It is the kind of pain that doesnt kill you, but makes you wish it did, often landing people in emergency, taking heavy duty pain killers. However difficult it is managing migranes, people with chronic migranes can achieve relief and live normal and successful lives. Balancing medication with a health lifestyle , vitamins, excercise, avoiding triggers, alcohol smoking certain types of foods, caffeine etc can bring people great relief. Many old maid's tails claim to manage migranes without medication and although a small minority of people might be able to do so, for many many people experiencing migranes, advances in pharma treatments have been life savers (not methaphorically). Migranes are repeated moderate to severe headaches also considered brain disorders that can physically alter your brain structure. Usually treated by neurologists, these type of headaches can be accompanied by a variety of other symptoms.

QUADRATUS LUMBORUM (QL)
When you think of lower back pain many people do not think that this sucker is the contributor. Whenever I get clients to come in to see me they always say I have pain here and circle this exact area with their finger.
The origin of the muscle is at the:
1️⃣ iliac crest (hip bone)
The muscle travels up towards the head and inserts onto the:
1️⃣ Transverse processes (parts of the spine) of the L4 - L1
2️⃣ The 12th rib
It is known to limit spinal rotation, flexion/extension, and breathing and because of these limits, they are usually the cause of many other issues in the lower or upper body.
But a lot of the time this bugger 😔 doesn't get tight on its own it usually has to do with tight muscles in other parts of the body, like hip flexors or hamstrings.
If you are experiencing tight hip flexors your pelvis will start to anteriorly tilt causing the QL to shorten and lock into that position making it extremely difficult for your ribcage to expand or to rotate, making other parts of the body have to compensate for the lack of movement.
If the hamstrings are tight it will posteriorly tilt causing the QL to extend and lock in that position as well. One of the biggest limits you could see from a locked QL due to hamstring tightness would be a limited amount of squat depth.
Because of this tilt anteriorly or posteriorly it tends to deactivate the glutes and makes you utilize the QL to do a lot of the heavy lifting. No wonder we are suffering from lower back pain all the time.
Later this week I will be talking about the exercises you can do to help fix these issues. Stay tuned in.
TAG A FRIEND THAT HAS LOWER BACK PAIN
Over the course of my time in the fitness and practitioner industry, I have treated a lot of different CrossFitters and time and time again they have gone to practitioners and have been told they need to stop what they are doing.
Some of the things I have heard practitioners say is "you need to stop doing CrossFit", "I don't mind people doing CrossFit because it puts money in my pocket", and "Crossfit is bad for you and you will get really hurt".
But when you start to think about it, how many times has a practitioner told someone or yourself that they need to stop doing the activity they love to do? ex. sports or exercise.
The thing is we should never tell someone that they shouldn't do something or ridicule them for doing something you may have no idea what the activity is about, we should be celebrating that they are going out and trying to stay healthy and strong whatever it may be.
Our clients are coming to practitioners for advice on how to fix the problem they are suffering from, they are not there to hear about what they are doing wrong with their choices and they need to fix them.
It is about giving the clients the best experience you possibly can no matter what type of exercise they do.
