Alleviating low back pain – more than just losing weight?

Monday, September 5th, 2011

Having had chronic low back pain since I was a teenager (ruptured disc and failed surgery when I was 17), I am no stranger to the woes that back pain causes.  Chronic pain is insidious.  It can literally wreak havoc in your life and be all consuming. If you are experiencing chronic pain, then that […]

It’s nearly summertime, are you ready?

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

Spring is quickly turning to summer.  It’s been a beautiful spring here.  I know other parts of the country have been flooded and hit with massive storms.  But here in Virginia Beach, it’s been one of the nicer Springs I can remember.  And I am looking forward to summertime.
