If the Winter ever ends..
If you've looked outside, it seems Old Man Winter refuses to let go. The first Hillcrest Run Club run of the season was planned for April 18 and that date doesn't look promising. So, due to the large amounts of snow we have outside, we'll be canceling the Wed evening club until the ground is ready for it. In the meantime we do a dog walk every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 10:45AM. The route is the same as the run and we'll be going rain, snow or shine. Look for updates on our facebook page as to when the Wednesday @ 615PM runs will start. Have a great day!
Why Do I Come to Work Everyday?
I love everything about chiropractic. Its not only a form of natural health care, its an art. It takes dedication, skill, practice, passion, physical ability, personality, compassion and so much more. There are about 65 chiropractors in the Eau Claire WI area. Each one is different in most if not all the aspects I laid out above and very few have those characteristics mastered. For me, knowing that my profession requires a dedication to always improving, keeps me yearning for more.
Every patient's body is different. With practice, acquired skill and some natural physical talent, a chiropractor should continue to refine their art of the chiropractic adjustment each day. I'm very blessed and thankful to have practiced in a variety of chiropractic clinics around the country. These experiences have refined and shaped the skills I possess today. This not only includes the chiropractic treatment process, but also the bedside manner, passion and commitment to be the best with each patient that comes into my office. This is my office and I stand behind the care I give to every person I see.
What are the Benefits of Chiropractic?
Chiropractic patients normally come to my office for a select few reasons. Its normally neck pain, low back pain, sciatica or a nasty muscle spasm that just refuses to go away. Yes, chiropractic adjustments are great for these ailments. However, potential patients usually don't realize all the other wonderful improvements they'll make along the way.
Its incredible how many people suffer from headaches on a regular basis. Its also surprising that most people don't consider chiropractic as a potential treatment for their chronic headaches and migraines. Just a few weeks ago I was in a consultation with a new patient. She had come in due to low back pain and sciatica. She never wrote down or mentioned headaches mostly because she was in so much low back pain she had forgotten, but also because she didn't think it pertained to chiropractic. Boy was she wrong! She had been experiencing headaches every day for years. Four days after her first adjustment I asked how everything was going. She said the low back pain was beginning to subside and more notably, she hadn't had a headache since the first time she saw me. It was surprising to her and to me it was another inspiring reason to come to work each day. Its now been 3 weeks of regular chiropractic care without a headache and her low back pain/sciatica is down to 2 out of 10 on the pain scale.
There are many other great benefits of chiropractic care that I see first hand each day. Torticollis, latching, digestive problems and bed wetting in infants and children. Range of motion, fatigue, sleep, joint pain, athletic performance and many other improvements are made consistently with patients of every age. Not only do patients get out of pain and dysfunction, but they get their lives back so they can live at their best without physical limitations they had before.
Why do Chiropractic Patients come Back?
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but chiropractic can't fix you in one treatment. Pain is usually one of the last symptoms to show with disease and disfunction. Its also one of the first things to resolve. One treatment might get you out of pain momentarily, however, look deeper at why you were in pain in the first place. It could be due to a multitude of reasons. Many people sit at a desk or in a vehicle for long hours at work. Many people have had some sort of trauma whether a car accident, fight, slip on the ice or otherwise. Many people have imbalances in their musculature leading to poorer and poorer posture and spinal support. Whatever the reason, its likely been festering for some time and it'll take some time to treat and obtain lasting healing results.
Don't stop there! Once you're feeling better and quality of life has been improved, don't quit. You're ready to graduate to the next level of care. Just like a retainer after braces, chiropractic maintenance care keeps you living at that high level. If you're still working at a desk or in a car, you're continually doing the things that put you in a poor state of health in the first place. Not everyone can quit their desk job or suddenly take all the stress out of their lives. Thats where periodic chiropractic adjustments come in. They work to combat the negative effects of all those things every person does to their bodies each and every day.
Hey Altoona WI Chiroelite is back!
After 6 months in Colorado Springs, Dr. Tom and ChiroElite Chiropractic are back in the Chippewa Valley. Dr Tom stayed busy spending each weekend climbing mountains, driving on 4x4 trails and camping in the backcountry of Colorful Colorado. He has hundreds of pictures and stories to share of all the adventures he went on while out West. It was a great experience and chapter for ChiroElite and now we're moving on to the next one. We've purchased 1219 10th St W in Altoona which contains a lovely living space upstairs and a large chiropractic clinic space on the lower level. This provides much more space for seeing patients and will also allow us to start taking X-rays to view patients spines from the inside.

Remy is the latest addition to the staff here at ChiroElite Chiropractic in Altoona, WI. He jumped right into action on his first day; greeting patients and giving plenty of love with the occasional paper shred when he felt the need. Currently his schedule is Tuesday and Thursday but he is already showing full-time employment potential.
Remy was born December 11 to a Black Lab/German Shepherd female and purebred Black Lab male. There were nine in the litter and he was the first one born. Early on, he showed his leadership skills by masterminding an escape with all his siblings from their pen only to be stopped by the breeder as he led them down the hallway.
Stop by for an adjustment and say hi to Remy while you're here!
