Through Valentine's Day, we're giving-away 6 six massage gift certificates! At each of our three locations, you may put one entry per day (no purchase necessary, and you don't even have to be a client/patient) into the drawing box. At each office on Valentine's Day, we will pick a winner to receive a pair of massage gift certificates. It's that simple!
In keeping with tradition, My Chiro recently celebrated the arrival of its 30,000th patient... with a "selfie" of me with cardboard cut-out Jacob from The Twilight Saga. With HIPAA privacy laws, it's just so much easier to use our cut-out stand-in for the celebratory photo.
Why do so many people choose My Chiro?
I believe it's because we make it so easy to get an adjustment:
No Extra Exam Fees
No Multiple Appointment Schedules
...just one, affordable visit at a time whenever you need it.
Thank you so much to so many in the Cedar Rapids community who've place their trust in My Chiro!
Tightness of the chest and side, lower neck muscles can compress the nerves and blood vessels that go down the arm... representing just a couple causes of a condition called "Thoracic Outlet Syndrome."
The video below is intended to help instruct our patients who need to stretch these muscles.
Hold each stretch at least 20 seconds! Try this two to three times per day (nothing wrong with doing more if you want to). When arm/hand symptoms are due to compression from these muscles, many people report improvement within the first week.
It's FREE, it's SAFE, and NO EQUIPMENT is needed!
For more information on Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, click on the Mayo Clinic link below. The section on "Prevention" ends with, "Stretch daily, and perform exercises that keep your shoulder muscles strong." Well... that's good advice for about half the conditions we see in our practice!
