Alzheimer’s disease is a complex condition with many underlying causes – Dr Dale Bresden likens these factors to 36 holes in a roof – there’s no point in fixing just one. Sleeping disorders can play a big part in the development of Alzheimer’s, so it’s worthwhile exploring exactly why – and what you can do about it.

October 2nd is Global Airway Health Day. Airway-Centered Disorder, or ACD, is a structural and physiological condition of the mouth, jaw, nasal passages, tongue, or throat that involves an obstruction of the upper airways, which can affect breathing 24 hours a day – including and especially during sleep.

ACD is a “hidden” airway problem, and when not recognized, the expressions of the ACD are treated and the underlying disorder remains – to be expressed yet again in another form.

It is important to get screened for an Airway-centered disorder, and this screening quiz is a good place to start in addition to making an appointment at our office. We invite you to become an airway advocate, and champion the recognition, diagnosis, and treatment of airway-related disorders.

Fall Sports! Maintenance!

Whether your child participates in baseball, basketball, bowling, cross country, football, field hockey, fencing, soccer, swimming, tennis, volleyball, lacrosse and wrestling, you know they are going to be very active in it.  Practices are often and long. 

I have had kids come into my office who are injured BEFORE the season begins for them.  Or they have such long practices, with little down time to recuperate.


Many kids swear off sports because they find themselves in pain with no joy for the activity anymore.


There are obvious reasons:  poor stretching techniques, little or no warm ups, incorrect strength training, overwork, too little recuperation time between meets and long practices.

I believe the best way for your child to improve during their season and enjoy the sport is by correct body placement whether during stretching or strengthening and manual body work.  

Manual manipulation of the body, to soothe, align and balance is important. Structural body work aids in flexibility, pain management and building an awareness of the body.

Routine maintenance becomes important as the season evolves to keep the athlete in top form and injury free.

It seems like a lot to think about but so is learning different plays, formations and certain techniques associated with each sport.  Taking care of the athlete’s body is the number one priority in any sports activity.

The fascial system is our largest sensory organ in terms of gross surface area?

The quantity and richness of nerve endings in fascia is equal to that of both our sight and hearing.

Fascia continually contracts at the rate of 8-12 cycles per minute.

The miracle happens when this tissue becomes malleable.  Constrictions release.  The body becomes more at ease.  Pliable.  Easy. Free.
