For the past 19 years Queen Anne Chiropractic Center has had massage therapy available in conjunction with chiropractic care. We recently expanded the massage area of our practice and would like to welcome Mrs. Sarah Denham, LMP, Mr. J.P. Bulow, LMP, and Ms. Leslie Berry, LMP to ourRead More >
As my family and I begin to celebrate our Valentine’s Day, I wanted to take a moment to remember my mother, Beth. It was 4 years ago today that she passed peacefully at home, and ironically, on her favorite day of the year. Luckily enough, she had thoughtRead More >
I have been a little surprised at my reluctance when mentioning our homebirth choice, since I do no not have as much interest in defending my point of view as I used to. Realizing that your time is a very limited resource will do that. So I have done my best to collect some information regarding the actual statistics involving the safety and outcome measures of homebirths.
Something that I have not seen much coverage on is the inclusion of a Chiropractor in the expecting family’s homebirth team. It is getting much more common to have a midwife, midwife assistance, and doula. Having your family chiropractor on hand is something that cannot always be arranged, but I know most of my colleagues would love the chance to help the mother and child in this process.
If you use the video on your site but please link back to Queen Anne Chiropractic Center After writing my last blog post about neuroplasticity and chiropractic, reviewing the documentary, and reading some of the responses I received, I decided to find a small clip of the documentary,Read More >
As my wife finishes her master’s degree in early childhood education, I like to imagine a place where parents in Seattle have access to such a program for their struggling student. I realize there are programs, but most are focused on accepting a disability and not attempting to rewire their pliable brains so it goes away. Permanently.
When I saw this I wondered if the same stimulation could be used via the other senses of touch while using less used cortical stimulus via the cranial nerves. Could smell or aromatherapy used via the olfactory nerve? Could a chiropractic adjustment be used to effect a certain spinal tract and relay the impulse to a weak area of the brain?
Some of these questions are rhetorical as I already know the answer, but it is a shame that only small niche groups of Chiropractors strictly focus on the brain as it relates to neuroplasticity. Yes, many of us are creating this positive response via the adjustment, but there could not be a better time to educate our patients on the subject. Now could be the time to ask the public to send it patients who have struggled with brain injuries, learning difficulties and strokes.
Even though my wife and I have had a successful birth at home, I continue to do research to understand the role medicine and chiropractic play in this natural process. I recently found an article that is very well done, and supports the role chiropractic has played inRead More >

My wife, Kate, recently reached the final trimester of our second pregnancy(I say very loosely, as I realize I am involved strictly in a supportive role.) With Kate’s first pregnancy there was very few if any symptoms, and the pregnancy was relatively stress free. This second pregnancy hasRead More >
1995 was a very special year in the history of Chiropractic. Growing up in a chiropractic family, I have had the good fortune to have been taught the history of chiropractic from a very early age. I can still remember doing my first “biography” in 3rd grade. IRead More >
Exceptional health through chiropractic will always be the main priority in my life. Occasionally, I will notice that the balance between the physical, emotional, and nutritional components at my practice might be swayed one direction or the other. Keeping a level understanding that each one contributes to theRead More >
If you were to hand pick a spokesperson for your profession, you could not do better than Jerry Rice. Thanks to Evri.com, I found this brief article about Jerry Rice speaking at a popular chiropractic seminar about the benefit chiropractic adjustments gave throughout his hall of fame career.
I spend the majority of my day speaking to people about Chiropractic, and doing my best to educate them about the effects of an adjustment. There are other components to health that I must preach about, as they are similarly important. Thanks to Chiro.org, I came across aRead More >

Last August, I was fortunate to spend some time with a couple of hockey teammates on a drive up to Vancouver for a tournament we were scheduled to compete in. We had all been acquaintances for the past few years, but truly didn’t know much about each other.Read More >
One of the biggest misconceptions about many childhood ailments is that they simply come with territory, and the few spared were lucky, while the unlucky ones simply suffer. My favorite example of this are children who suffer from acute or chronic ear infections (Otitis Media.) My sister andRead More >
