"Serving our neighbors through educating, empowering, and exceptional restorative chiropractic care."
That is the mission statement I created when working towards opening this practice. I wanted it to reflect what I truly care about when it comes to why I do what I do.
So for this blog, I am going to break it down and explain my mission towards service and health.
"Serving our neighbors":
A service mindset has always been my intention throughout all of life, starting with two of the best parents teaching me to always look for ways to serve others.
Not to find how it could benefit me, but because helping people should just be natural.
That is why we utilize the golden rule to its fullest extent.
We treat you how we expect to be treated in other businesses.
Through honesty and transparency, we hope to achieve a level of service that you are excited to share with others.
And our neighbors?
In our office, it is so. much. more. than a doctor-patient relationship.
Obviously, your health is important to us.
it means going beyond how your back feels or what the headache is like. When you have success, tell us about it so we can rejoice with you. When you have stress, we can always lend an ear. Sometimes you just need to get something off your chest. Well, here we are. We love hearing about your vacation, promotion, and family news, and we'll be there when the news is not so great as well.
We take care of our neighbors. (Hello Neighbor)
We know why we do what we do.
We want you understand your health and what you can benefit from.
Research has shown that knowledge helps the healing process so the more you know, the better. How our care can help and how different care can help.
That means even if what you need isn't found in our office, we'll make sure you get where you need to go to help with your biggest health concerns.
You can take charge of your health.
That is one of the biggest takeaways we want you to know coming into our office.
No matter how helpless you feel from trying a-z treatments, we are here to help. Because, Iowa City, we are the first to bring our specific focus to the area. Which means I can guarantee that you still have yet to try everything. And if you haven't tried everything yet but would like to skip that whole process come on in.
It is all about being excited and taking charge, and we'll help you do that.
"Exceptional Restorative Chiropractic Care"
As I've mentioned before, we are the first to utilize our specific focus of NeuroSpinal Restoration within the realm of chiropractic care, in the Iowa City area.
But I don't just want to be the first, I want to be the best.
Not for me, mind you, but for you!
Serving, educating, and empowering.
If I can do those three things perfectly but fail at my craft, you won't get better.
I wouldn't sleep at night knowing someone was receiving sub par care at my office.
Which is why I continuously practice my skills, dive into research, and develop myself so that you get nothing but the best.
I'm about to use a cliche, (which I dislike doing), but now that you know my story, you know I'm not blowing smoke.
"It's about patient centered care"
I'm here for you!
I went to school because of you!
I continuously work on myself because of you!
I am here to Serve, Educate, Empower, because of you!
Yours in Health,
The current recommendations for physical activity is 150 minutes of moderate activity or 75 minutes of vigorous activity a week.
The average 9-5 desk job clocks in at about 2 minutes a day for those much needed pee breaks.
WE DON"T MOVE ENOUGH.
There I said it. And I'm writing this blog just in time for nice weather to (finally) kick in.
Listen, "if you don't use it, you lose it" is a pretty common expression and holds true with our bodies.
Our joints are specifically made to move our body around. That includes our spines which has over 100 joints associated with it. When we don't move, we begin to build adhesions throughout our spine which can decrease our ranges of motion and lead to NeuroSpinal Shift.
So yes, if you don't use it, you will LOSE it.
Not to mention that it doesn't really even take that much to maintain somewhat of a healthy lifestyle.
You don't have to go sign up for the next marathon or enter the next bodybuilding competition.
You need to spend 2 1/2 hours doing an activity that:
This doesn't mean to the point of exhaustion. Even a slight increase can have MAJOR health benefits.
In a week with 168 hours you need to put forth 1.5% of it towards exercise.
Not too bad.
How can you get started?
If you need someone to help get you started, just know two things:
We are willing to make an investment in you, to take the time to create a healthy lifestyle, and help with whatever goals you may have.
