As we begin this new week together, we here at EC have a few bits of information we would like to share with you; to help keep you healthy and functioning at your best!
Two things that are epidemic in the U.S. are low back pain and obesity (being overweight). The two go hand-in-hand and while excessive weight may not be the only cause of your pain, it does makes matters worse by aggravating your pain through increased loading the disks of the low back. In addition, most people with low back pain or who are excessively heavy are also very inactive.
The first step is to perform movements that don't increase pain. For most people, walking can still be done. If your back hurts when you walk or you are so heavy, that walking causes your knees to ache, then you may need to start by walking in a...
It's a great day here at Elizabethton Chiropractic! We hope you've had an enjoyable weekend. Fall is definitely in the air, and we hope you get to enjoy every minute of it. We have a few tips that we would like to share with you today!

But sometimes pains in the low back are not so easy to figure out. One area of the spine could be compensating in posture for another, inhibiting a vertebral joint's ability to fully recover. Or maybe you're suffering from the cumulative affects of microtrauma over time.
Such is the short leg; about 1/10 people will have an anatomic difference in leg length of up to one centimeter. This short leg causes the pelvis...
