Research Review: Why Useless Surgery Is Still Popular

Recently one of my clients and I were talking about the idea of him having a surgery. He had a fall a while back that resulted in some pretty serious injuries and the option was presented to him by a physician. As with any person I have this discussion with, I view it purely from a standpoint of risk vs. benefit and always based upon the nature and severity of the condition/injury and on the proposed surgical procedure itself. From my perspective I think there are times...

Lessons Learned While Conquering Colorado Mountains

Hey! I hope you're having a fantastic day! What a week my family and I have had... Last Friday (7/22) we flew out to Denver Colorado and began what was to become an absolutely epic family vacation all through the Colorado Rockies. It was packed with action, adventure, rest, relaxation and everything in between. We just flew back in to Florida at 7:30 this morning and I'm still on cloud nine. I could tell story after story of what we did, what we saw, and the fun we...

This Is Nourishment For Aging Joints

Hey my friend!  I hope you're having a great weekend! Have you ever had the experience where you read something that you have read before but something about it stands out that didn't stand out the previous time?  This happened to me a few weeks ago when I was at home on a Saturday studying my textbook "Joint Structure and Function." Something caught my attention that I had previously not looked as closely at. I was reading about the composition of joint and connective tissue and the...

Can You Really Say “It’s Impossible?”

Hey! I hope you're having a great day! I'm sitting in the Columbus Ohio airport still in awe of how much I've learned this weekend. I came up for an advanced class on identifying muscular problems and on intra-session problem solving taught by arguably the most skilled practitioner in the country. I am amazed at some of the things I've seen. I'm very excited to get home and start applying this, because I know it will make a huge positive impact in my body and in my clients...

Fail to Manage This and You’ll Always Live In Disappointment

Hey! I hope you're having a great day today! I'm an optimist. I usually tend to believe the best about a situation. When I wake up in the morning I expect to have a good day. I expect people to be mostly fair and honest with me as I am fair and honest with them. I expect there to be some positive outcome to every challenge, failure or setback. I expect to learn something from every situation and use those lessons to make better future decisions. I also expect...

1 Minute of This Exercise Can Equal 45 Minutes Worth

Hey! I hope you're having a great Memorial Day weekend! Many people will be going to get-togethers this weekend, as did we just the other night. Whenever we do, its common for me to get the question from people I've just met- "so what do you do?" I often joke with my clients about the funny experiences I have while interacting with people after I answer this question because undoubtedly someone will ask me "why does this hurt?" or "I have this problem, what do I do...

An Innovative New Study On Lower Back Pain

Hey! I hope you're having a great weekend! I've got some pretty exciting news. Non-Fiction Fitness will be launching our first official research study beginning in about 30-45 days.

It is also one of the most difficult problems for doctors to treat and because of that, people can...

Putting These On Your Shoes Can Really Help Your Back

Hey! I hope you're having a great day! I'm taking a little break right now from working on the slides for a 6 hour continuing education workshop I'm teaching for health professionals this coming Friday. It's an intensive task and I can use the brief distraction. I wanted to write to you about something I recently got for my shoes. They are called "Lock Laces" and they are pretty cool little contraptions. They are essentially shoelaces that both stretch and self tie so as to eliminate the need...

What’s Your Standard?

Hey! I hope your weekend is going well! I’m sitting in Columbus airport right now waiting to board my plane. I had a pretty cool weekend up here taking a continuing education course on manual muscle testing and advanced concepts related to it. Very productive weekend indeed. It was interesting having conversations with my clients and colleagues about my trip last week leading up to my departure because one question I got a few times was “is this a requirement to maintain your certification?” When my response...
