    Another Story of the Big, Bad City

    It happened just last Wednesday. I was on my way home, sitting in a bus, impatiently waiting for the traffic to move. When I got to my stop where I was supposed to change bus, I got off in a manner I thought was my usual. But I guess I bent a little too far and I felt...

    I Realized Proper Posture Is A Big Factor In The Success Of Your Spine

    The human body craves alignment. When we are properly aligned, our bones, not our muscles, support our weight, reducing effort and strain. The big payoff with proper posture is that we feel healthier, have more energy, and move gracefully. So while the word "posture" may conjure...

    The Wierdest Thing

    All week I have felt anxious and unhappy and my body has been full of aches and pains for no good reason. Then just a little while ago I remembered it's the anniversary of the accident. It's sort of like my body remembered before my brain did. Strange.
