Get Moving at Home!

Category : Uncategorized

To prevent pain while social distancing and staying at home the best advice I can give you is get moving. When a joint is locked up, it causes pain. That’s all an adjustment is, I get the joint moving again. So let keep it moving, here are some tips.

  • Get up from your desk every hour. While working from home you may or may not have the ideal work station for your neck shoulder or back. You may even be working on your laptop from your bed. To help combat pain, set a timer for an hour and get up and stretch. 
  • Take walks every day. Walking is one of the best things for back pain. Walk with good posture and enjoy some fresh air.
  • Stretching and exercise is a great way to move, increase oxygen and blood flow. Especially now there are lots of workout that you can do from home without gym equipment.
  • Ice, never heat. Ice for 20 min any location that has pain. Ice reduces inflammation that causes pain. Repeat this every hour.
  • Reduce stress. I know easier said then done but your health depends on it. Walks, fresh air, exercise, mediation, acupuncture, facetime a friend, limit caffeine, write it down are just a few examples. 

We encourage you to take care of yourself.


Build your immune system!

Here are some tip how you and your family can build strong immune systems.

  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Acupuncture
  • Get more sleep
  • Healthy diet with fruits and veggies
  • Exercise

Spinal adjustments have been shown to boost immune function because they serve to correct the spinal misalignment that cause neural dysfunction. Neural dysfunction stresses a body out, which may lead to a weakened immune system and lowered response to a foreign body, such as a virus. Getting a chiropractic adjustment is a great place to start so you can get any spinal misalignment you may have corrected. Even one adjustment can bring about an immediate immune boost. 

Acupuncture can regulate immune function and treat the underlying cause of the disease by reducing symptoms, speeding up the healing of infection and normalizing the body’s immune response.

Get more sleep! We are a nation of sleep-deprived individuals, but you don’t have to be one of them. Sleep helps your body to reset and recharge, and keeps your system firing and protecting in the way that it should.

Boost your immune system with a diet packed full of healthy fruits and vegetables. Cut back on sugar and processed foods. Add vitamins D from sunlight, C and Calcium from a high quality supplement. Dr. Collard uses the example if you throw beans on the sidewalk they won’t grow. A virus needs a week environment to grow. Build your environment up with healthy foods and supplements. Stop by and we will get you set up with a daily whole food supplement.

Regular exercise is also important when it comes to immune health because it serves to improve blood circulation, which in turn kick stars the release of immune system substances into your body. The weather is great, get outside for fresh air and sunlight.

If you have any questions please give us a call 801-569-1141

Did you miss Pie Day? We missed you!

pie day instagram 2017

Obviously not everyone is going to come in on patient appreciation day but hopefully we can extend our appreciation for you all year long.

We had such a great time on Pie Day passing out free apple pies. One of our favorite things is to see people get creative transporting their pies home. Bicycles or motorcycles it doesn’t matter. I am curious as to how the pie looked after a ride home in the side saddle bag.

Thank you for entrusting us with your health care needs.

Collard Family Photo

Collard Family Photo web

Many have noticed that the family photo in Chad’s office is a little outdated. My poor husband has begged on many occasions for me to print the new family photo. Chad’s mom has asked for new photos of the kids and I’ve never gotten around to it. I realized that I needed to improve when my sister-in-law printed a family photo for my mother-in-law off of Facebook. I really hate scrapbooking and I am afraid that my kids will inherit a hard drive of photos. However today I’m enjoying the small successes. Thanks to my friend and photographer @chariseprestonphotography I have printed photos for both the office and my mother-in-laws house. Next time you are in the office be sure to notice the current family photo.

Our patients feel more like family.
