This USA Today News Story Blew My Mind!

Talking with some of my clients this week about what is going on in the news has been admittedly a bit of a downer.  With news about terrorist attacks, measles outbreaks, news anchors lying and other "bad" news, my general disdain for mainstream media news stories was reinforced substantially. Then I read another story that completely changed everything. USA Today, the nations most widely circulated newspaper ran a story this week about a boy in Missouri who drowned in an icy lake.  He was under water, fully submerged for...

No matter what slip ups have happened early...

An Important Lesson Learned on My Anniversary…

I can still clearly remember the day when Andrea and I made our vows, said I do and committed our lives to each other. I remember having a blast at our "Latin style" wedding reception (Andrea is from Peru) where we danced until almost 3 in the morning.  I also remember the many times we would sit and talk about how great life together was going to be from then on. It's funny how you never can really grasp the amount of work that's involved in a marriage until...

Strategies For Back Health- Part 2: The 4 Letter Word Most Active People Hate

For the longest time, I was one that didn't really believe I needed a vacation.  I thought that because I love what I do and who I work with, just taking weekends off was enough.  I realized a few years ago that getting adequate rest from work and the "normal" daily routines was essential because it gave me the time I needed to clear my mind so I could have the ability to do what I did even better when I returned. This principle is the...

While working with people over the past 9 years, I have seen many people with back issues. One commonality between all of them is that their quality of life has decreased substantially since their back problem has worsened.  Their activities become limited, they have to be very careful in everything that they do, and many of them are in constant pain. That is not a situation that I want to see anybody go through if there is anything that I can do to help them. Through a few...
