Our Website is Up! (1)

-

We finally did it! After many long hours of compiling information and getting ourselves organized, Parksidepdx.com is up and running. We hope to use this site as a place where existing patients can go for information and news, and where people who are interested in coming in can come for a peek into who we are and what we do.

To Ice or to Heat (that is the question)

-

One of the most common questions I receive in practice is whether to apply ice or heat to a painful area. Luckily, the answer is very straightforward, and unlike some things in medicine and physiology, it is well understood why.

What happens if I’m hurt on the job?

-

Workplace injuries are a common and costly event in the United States. The November newsletter has lots of information about these injuries, and how effective and efficient chiropractic care can be in helping injured workers (and their employers!) I want to write today about what to do if you have a workplace injury, and hopefully help clear up a usually confusing and sometimes frustrating occurrence.

Well-Adjusted and Healthy

-

If you haven’t gotten around to getting a flu shot (or even if you have) keep in mind that regular chiropractic and massage care keeps nasty cold and flu bugs at bay.

Revitalize Your Engine with a Spring Tune-Up!

-

Just as your car needs regular adjustments and TLC from time to time, your body benefits from “routine maintenance” as well. As we approach seasons of warmer weather and greater activity, it makes sense to prime our bodies for the increased movement and pressure we exert on our bones and muscles with the gardening, running, biking and other common spring and summer pursuits.

Dr. Dan Suppnick on Conservative Care

-

Conservative care is the clinical practice of applying safe and effective treatments before more invasive measures. Conservative care is and always has been a no-brainer to me. When choosing my career path, I knew I wanted to be an expert in conservative care and musculoskeletal pain – and chiropractic is the perfect combination of these two concepts.

Dr. Dan Suppnick on Strong Posture

-

Your head is too far forward as you strain to read some small text on your laptop. Everyone does it; some are more guilty than others. Now your head is not balanced on your neck and rest of the spine like it should be. The muscles at the base of your skull, in your upper back and on top of your shoulders now have to work extra hard to keep your head from tumbling forward off of your neck and getting a concussion on the desk in front of you.

Dr. Dan Suppnick: What IS a chiropractic adjustment?

-

A chiropractic adjustment is a hands-on procedure performed by chiropractors to unlock stuck joints. A chiropractor will first stretch the tight joint and then impart a quick, controlled force in the direction that the joint is stuck. Often times, but not always, there will be a “pop” or “cracking” sounds associated with a stretch sensation.

Barefoot Running: Is This Trend Good For You?

-

The topic is a hot one: is the new trend toward running “barefoot”, or at least with five-toed thin-soled shoes, good for your feet? Proponents say that this is the type of running we humans have been doing for a long time, and only recently have we moved away from our natural running form. Others say that the technology that shoes have today allows better cushioning and support, providing comfort and preventing injuries.

How to Prevent Recurrent Ankle Sprains

-

Often I hear patients say, “I have sprained this ankle so many times. I do the rehabilitative work and strengthen my ankle, but it just keeps happening.” This is a common and preventable problem.

Workspace Ergonomics

-

Lately, I’ve be fielding a lot of questions about different types of desks: standing desks, sitting desks, adjustable height desks and even walking desks (a treadmill/desk hybrid.) Common painful conditions made worse by poor posture at work bring a lot of people into the clinic, and a typical question sounds something like this: “Do you think it’d be worth it for me to get a standing desk for my office?”

We’re Moving! (but not very far….)

-

We thought it was enough space, but it has turned out to be just a bit too small. Thanks to all of you, we’ve been able to hire more amazing massage therapists, another fantastic doctor and the incredible staff that keeps it all together. As a result, we’ve outgrown our current space, and we are in desperate need of more room to stretch out!
