Elliott Hulse shows everyone how to balance your neck musculature to decrease neck pain and forward head carriage.
Do you work at a desk all day, play video games, text on a cell phone or drive long hours? Do you notice your head sitting unnaturally forward compared to your shoulders? You might experience upper back pain and maybe even a bump at the base of your neck. This all could be due to a loss of cervical curve and an imbalance in the musculature of the neck. Treating the curvature in the neck is simple: contact your local chiropractor. Strengthening the muscles in the neck is also easy: see the video below to find out how.
Everyone can benefit from a better night's rest.
It's that time of year again--football season! At ChiroElite Chiropractic, we are big fans of our Green Bay Packers. Aaron Rodgers is also a huge fan of chiropractic.
His father is actually a chiropractor in California, and Aaron attributes much of his success to the healthy lifestyle that chiropractic has provided him.
“I am blessed that my dad is a chiropractor,” Rodgers said. “Getting adjusted regularly–along with practicing other good health habits that my mom helped me to establish–are all part of my goal to win in life and on the field.”
His dad has been quoted as saying: "The structure of the human body, especially the spine and its relationship to function, can be impacted by the physical nature of accidents, falls, poor posture and injuries," -Dr. Rodgers
Dr. Pellatt at ChiroElite treats every kind of athlete in the Chippewa Valley. Combining Active Release Technique (ART) with chiropractic adjustments greatly reduces muscle spasms and allows adjustments to last much longer.
This amazing compilation shows what training and dedication allow people to do.
Even though everything looks perfect in the video, there were many outtakes and injuries sustained while filming. Martyn Ashton actually sustained a severe spinal injury from a fall during one of his stunts. Take care of your spine and it will take care of you.

"The best doctor gives the least medicines."
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.
