Thank you, Everyone!- November 2013

November 2013

Hi Everybody Dr. Norris here.
In a few weeks we will be celebrating Thanksgiving.  It's my favorite holiday... feasting, football and a four day weekend.  However you spend the holiday please take time to reflect on the things you are grateful for and give thanks.

Here are a few fun facts about Thanksgiving:
- Thanksgiving is a holiday celebrated in the United States on the fourth Thursday in November. It has been an annual tradition since 1863, when, during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of "Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwells in the Heavens".

- According to Guinness Book of World Records the heaviest turkey ever was 86 lbs.  The gigantic bird was raised by Philip Cook (no pun intended) of London in 1989.  That's a serious meal...please pass the gravy!

- Approximately 46 million turkeys are prepared each year for thanksgiving. I'm sure they are saying "Eat more chicken!"

- I love pumpkin pie.  But check this out... the largest pumpkin ever was the 2,032 lb. monster grown in 2012 by Tim Mathison of Morgan Hill, CA. Get the whipped cream ready!

- Pro football on Thanksgiving Day has been a tradition since 1934.  The Detroit Lions have played on turkey day the most times.  The Dallas Cowboys hold the record for the second most. Have some turkey and pumpkin pie then crash and watch the game.

As I look back over the last year I'm thankful for many things.  I give thanks to God for my faith, for my wife and daughter.  I give thanks to my friends and family for their love and support.
And of course I give thanks to all of chiropractic family for allowing me to make a living doing what I love to do.  

Have a great Thanksgiving!

As always, if you or someone you care about is in pain, have them call for a consultation.
That's what I do -- help people get out of pain.

Posture Is Important

Have you ever place your hands on the shoulders of someone who has been sitting a long time at a computer.  Usually their muscles are tight and tense.  As we do prolonged activity our posture begins to slacken.  The muscles tighten; blood flow decreases and the nerves begin to produce pain.  That's why millions of people have neck and shoulder pain and muscle spasm.  Chiropractic can help reduce these symptoms and free you from pain.
