Is your body ready to handle something like this?
Whether the video above is real or fake, it still sends shivers down your spine. Many elements of this video showcase how a properly functioning spine and nervous system made this video possible. Firstly, a jump from that height puts quite a bit of force on the discs cushioning the spinal vertebrae. If he had degeneration in those discs and any possible nerve entrapment, an immediate reaction to the shark likely wouldn't have been his first thought.
When it came to choosing the best supplements to offer patients at ChiroElite, the choice was easy. Metagenics manufactures a product I can trust in having the utmost quality and potency. The company strives to offer the very best in the industry and I believe their products can not be matched in the grocery store or even in name brand health supplement stores.
Metagenics on Their Quality
No one looks at quality quite the way we do. And what makes us different makes us better. We devote the time and personnel to verify ingredient safety, ensure proper ingredient form/identity, and then test for purity and quality at multiple steps. This diligence may not change the way our products look, but we know it makes a measurable difference in the way our products perform. You’ll know it, too.
Cutting corners can have long-reaching health effects. Especially if a product contains the wrong ingredient form or potentially harmful contaminants. Or if the active ingredients aren’t absorbed properly. Metagenics starts with a formula designed with sound research and carefully monitors every stage of production to deliver a finished product that lives up to its scientific promise.
The result? A higher level of purity, safety, and quality for reliably effective use. In fact, we’re one of the first companies in our industry to achieve three independent certifications for Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) by world-leading arbiters. In many areas, we exceed these requirements with additional in-house testing and third-party assays by respected independent laboratories.
Because knowing that thousands of healthcare providers rely on our products to help their patients feel better isn’t something we take lightly.

A huge thank you to all the people who celebrated our clinic's ribbon cutting with us! It was great to meet so many nice members of the Eau Claire Chamber of Commerce and others from around the area. Our reception area was packed with people even though the weather was nasty outside. We even managed to recruit a good majority to take an outdoor picture for the cutting of the ribbon!
Muscle Stripping: The provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.
Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with muscle stripping. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.
Many chiropractors agree that the carrier on the right is the best position for preventing hip dislocation – your baby’s thighs are supported to the knee, with the main weight of their body on their bum, not their crotch, unlike in the Baby Bjorn.
Although chiropractors care for more than just back pain, many patients visit chiropractors looking for relief from this pervasive condition. In fact, 31 million Americans experience low-back pain at any given time.
A few interesting facts about back pain:
You’re in agony, in a darkened room, with no sound. Your throbbing head feels as though it is splitting in half and you’re nauseous, maybe even vomiting. You have a migraine and you just want the pain to go away…and never come back.
What Causes a Migraine Headache?
There are many triggers – the most common are:
Typical medical treatment for migraines is prescribed preventative and symptom-relieving medication.
Positive Results with Chiropractic Care
A number of research studies have examined the effects of chiropractic care on the frequency, intensity and duration of migraine headaches. One such study, conducted for six months at the Chiropractic Research Center of Macquarie University in Australia, involved 177 participants who had migraine headaches for an average of 18 years.
The results of the study were impressive; most of the participants experienced positive outcomes. Seventy-two percent had substantial reduction or noticeable improvement in their symptoms, including a drop in the frequency, intensity and duration of their migraines, and a decreased need for their migraine medications.
Consider the All-natural Approach
If you or someone you love suffers from migraine headaches, or any other type of headache, please consider all-natural, conservative chiropractic care. Ask to see our testimonials; we have many patients who are grateful for the headache relief they have experienced as a result of chiropractic care.
