Some Random Thoughts- February 2016

February 2016

Hi Everybody Dr. Norris Here,
For those of you who have already given up on your New Year's Resolutions take heart.  Most people last about 3 weeks. I swim several times per week over at East Side Pool. Right after the New Year the pool is packed. This week it is back the normal amount of people. Here are several good quotes about good intentions.
  • "A balanced diet is having a cupcake in each hand."
  • “If you can't go to the gym... go to McDonalds, the cashier is named Jim... it's kind of the same."
  • "I decided I will never get down to my original weight... 8 lbs 6 oz is unrealistic." 
Keep it simple. Eat more plants and keep moving.

Sciatic Nerve Symptoms
One of the most common conditions I treat is sciatic nerve pain. Pain down the back of the leg, side of the leg or into and around the buttocks is usually caused by irritation to the sciatic nerve. The irritation is often a misalignment of the pelvis or lower back. Pain therapy, massage, stretching exercises and chiropractic adjustments are the best and safest way to manage this condition. Let me know if you or someone you care about is suffering from this health issue... I can help.

Super Bowl Athletic Trainers
Some of you may know that before I became a Doctor of Chiropractic I was an Athletic Trainer at the high school, community college and university levels. It was a wonderful profession; helping athletes to rehabilitate from injuries and perform better at their best was very gratifying. I was able to work as a medical coordinator for the 1984 Olympic Games. My wife, Cindy, who is also an athletic trainer, and I were able to cover many events including the opening ceremonies, water-polo gold-medal game and the decathlon. Athletic trainers are the unsung heroes of sports. So when you watch the Super Bowl game look for the people who run onto the field and help the injured players off the field…and realize there is no game if the players can't play!
Because even Broncos and Panthers
don't have time for pain!

Remember These Five Dangerous Words:
Maybe It Will Go Away.
There is a direct response to how well a person responds to treatment and how soon the receive treatment. Delaying care often means the condition becomes chronic. And chronic health conditions mean longer more costly treatments and slower healing. So I recommend getting care AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

And best of all, you can fill it right now.”
