We treat a lot of knee, hip and back pain in our clinic.

People try over-the-counter drugs or prescription drugs for pain, usually with no or little relief. So, if you are suffering from knee, hip and back pain, be sure you have not torn anything by checking with your Chiropractic Physician or Medical Doctor first.

Then, consider engaging in some simple stretching exercise you can perform daily to help prevent these pains. For a video go of ideal stretches, visit www.Mercola.com and look up “Knee Pain.” This site is full of useful information on the subject…and many more!

Next, come see us for Acupuncture. The average course of treatment is 6-8 visits. Acupuncture works!

Finally, eliminating ALL grains has a BIG impact, too. Learn more about grain-free living at www.drperlmutter.com.

On 19 February, 2008, I was stopped at a traffic light at Granada and Clyde Morris in Ormond Beach, Florida. My car was “rear-ended” by a vehicle following me. The force of the collision thrust my car into the intersection. I remember hearing the crash and then finding my car in the intersection. I can only assume that I lost consciousness for a few seconds because I have no recollection of the move into the intersection. What follows is my “stream-of-consciousness” reconstruction of events in the best manner that my faulty octogenarian’s memory and checking my calendar and date book allows.

When I attempted the exit of my car, I found that I could not move my legs. The strength of my feet and legs was tested several times that day, and by early evening, some strength had returned and I was able to resist the testing pressure. I spent the night at Halifax Medical Center and about 8:00 am was escorted for a walk, using a walker. My legs responded to my commands and by the time my escort and I had traversed the length and width of the hallway and back, I was walking without the assistance or aid of the walker. I was released to home about 5:00 pm when my wife and daughter drove me home. I was a little sore and did ache. However, these aches subsided over the next few days.
