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!
Here's the no nonsense pricing structure that we have at ChiroElite. No need for insurance as we beat most insurance co-pays and deductibles.
Can't help but share the little things that are so beautiful. Our orchid seems to bloom about three times a year and it's currently getting close to full bloom. For as little as it gets watered, it really is a hardy little plant. Cheers and happy holidays these next few weeks!
Dr. Pellatt will be the team chiropractor for the Predator's 2015 season.
During the offseason, Predators owner Matt Risen and Dr. Pellatt of ChiroElite Chiropractic in Altoona, WI agreed to have sports chiropractic services available to the athletes before practice and home games at Carson Park. The positive outcome of this is twofold. The football players will have the ability to treat their aches, pains and other health conditions with a completely natural from of health care known as chiropractic. Secondly, with less problems slowing them down, the players will be able to perform at a higher level on the field. We look forward to providing this competitive edge to the Chippewa Valley Predator Football Team and wish them good luck this season.

Build a Stronger Core for Better Balance, Less Low Back Pain and Greater Well Being.
ChiroElite Chiropractic is having a new patient challenge/competition: Core Strength. A good majority of patients and public alike sit for most of their work day. Sitting has been labeled the new smoking. It not only tightens muscles in your back and legs but also prevents many muscles from being used. This tightness and weakening can wreak havoc on your back, SI joints and even cause issues such as sciatica and digestive problems.
Over the years I've done quite a bit of core strengthening both at the gym and in my living room. Many exercises require equipment of some sort but there are also quite a few which don't need anything. The latter just call for yourself and a soft surface incase you lose your balance and take a tumble. However, to really be able to do a full assortment of exercises, a few basic pieces of equipment are handy to have. This includes a yoga/exercise mat, swiss ball, stabilizer platform and the optional kettle bell weight.
Here are the three core challenge exercises we're doing at the clinic:
1. One-Legged Floor Touch
Stand on one leg. Reach down with both hands to touch the floor, keeping the weighted leg straight. Kick your other leg straight behind you so you make a horizontal line with the ground from head to toe. Come back up and repeat a total of 15 times per side.
2. Unbalanced Squat
Standing on an uneven surface, stabilizer platform or bosu ball; bend your knees as far as you can into a seated squat position. Be sure to keep your back straight by looking up the entire time. Slowly go back to standing and repeat a total of 15 times.
3. Swiss Ball Tuck
Using a yoga mat and swiss ball, climb onto the ball with your feet until you can securing wrap them around the ball to stabilize yourself. Keep your arms extended at all times and look forward to keep your back straight. Bring your knees to your chest as far as you can, being sure your pelvis doesn't rock down or back while do so. Extend back out and do 20 times total.
Our challenge comprises a before and after tally. Counting how many floor touches, squats and tucks patients can do at day one and comparing the improvement at day 30. I encourage everyone to do the same and see how much stronger and more balanced you can become.
Yours in Health,
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!

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.
