Minds that Matter | The Wave 2017

By August 1, 2017February 24th, 2020No Comments


Our entire team is so excited to be heading to The Wave this August! Vacation at a water park? No! It’s a huge chiropractic event with world-class speakers and workshops, and attracts people from all over the world. We are about to learn even more about brain health, so we can better serve our patients and our community.
For instance, did you know … ?

… Brain injuries have become a national epidemic, with over 1.7 million people sustaining a brain injury every year. This makes it crucial for professionals to know the latest topics and science on the effects of things like concussion and on brain health in general.

… A neuropathologist examined 202 brains of deceased NFL players — 110 were found to have CTE, the degenerative disease linked to repeated blows to the head. Now that we know this is a problem – what do we do to help those with CTE and how do we prevent these injuries from occurring? Chiropractors, with their valuable knowledge, experience and resources, are at the forefront of answering these questions.

… Kid’s brains have unique benchmarks of health and development. We’ll be learning the latest research and techniques to help your child’s journey to optimal brain function.

… Only 1% of dis-ease is attributed to defects in genetics, meaning the remaining 90% is attributable to the environment and our nervous system’s perception of the environment (according to Behavioral Epigenetics, the new field of how mind and nervous system shape genetics).

The good news is that you don’t have to know all of these things because that’s the chiropractor’s job (although educating our patients so they are in control of their own health and healing is a major part of our practice). We can’t wait to share everything we’ve learned at THE WAVE with you and your family!

Here’s to your vibrant health and to letting life flow…
