Ask Dr. Amanda: Could your UNDERWEAR cause back trouble?
Dr Amanda discusses a topic that is important regarding health that people don’t often think about, “suck it in underwear”. It is a weird topic but there are many products like this on the market. They are clothing modifications that specifically suck or push your body in. As fabric technology advances these products have become more underwear like. But unlike underwear, when worn regularly, it behaves like a back brace. We need to be cautious because our bodies know when to do work and when they shouldn’t, based on what is going on around us. If you were to wear a back brace every day, your back would become weaker because the body wouldn’t think to strengthen those muscles because the work is already being done for it.

Ask Dr. Amanda: Why would a child/baby see a chiropractor?
In a normal delivery, the average amount of pressure on a baby’s head can be up to 70 lbs. After birth it is recommended to check for alignment in newborns. Young children learning to crawl and walk fall more in a week than an average adult does in a single year. With every fall a child can sustain what is called a micro trauma. In this video, I will explain the benefits of Chiropractic care for children.
