Weight-bearing Exercises a Necessity

Are you ready to exercise? Most people know that cardio exercise has a positive influence on our physical fitness. However, many people are not as aware of the importance of weight-bearing exercises in building and maintaining healthy bones. At Homberg Chiropractic and Wellness, after a full evaluation of your physical fitness, we can design a

Don’t Let Shorter Days Interfere with Exercise

You’ve all probably noticed how it is getting darker earlier these days. It will get dark much earlier when Daylight Savings Time ends on Nov. 5, and we turn our clocks back an hour. It’s nice to get that extra hour of sleep, but it’s not so easy to keep up an exercise routine when

What We Actually Have is Sick Care

I have to shake my head and chuckle a bit when I hear news about Congress discussing yet another health care bill. I don’t argue that this is a system in our country that needs desperate help. However, what we have in the U.S. is actually sick care, not health care. We learn to seek

Core Strength

Pelvic Muscle Balance

When we hear the words core strength, many people think of a flat belly or six-pack abs. A toned mid-section might be what motivates you, but improving core strength has so many other benefits for our bodies including improved posture, better balance, reduced back pain and easier breathing. If I asked you to tell me

The Importance of Good Balance

The Importance of Good Balance

I’m sure you’ve all seen kids when they start to walk, they teeter and toddle as if they are going to fall over at any minute and many times they do. That’s because they do not have good balance yet. As we age, we see that balance start to waiver again. At any age, it’s

Backpack Time is Here

Backpack Time is Here

It’s that time of year again. I’m not a parent or a school kid, but it seems like just yesterday that schools closed for the summer break. Several area systems have already started the school year and others will open in the coming weeks. Therefore I think it’s the perfect time for…the backpack talk. I

Functional Movement Check

Functional Movement Check

I have patients of all ages – from 9 days old to 90. Increasingly, I am seeing kids from the ages of about 7 to 18 coming in with sports-related injuries. Youth sports injuries are the second leading cause of emergency room visits for children and adolescents, and the second leading cause of injuries in

Hydration and Sports Drinks

Hydration and Sports Drinks

In case you haven’t noticed, it’s hot outside! These sweltering temperatures coupled with the fact that school and school sports will be starting soon are not a good combination. It is vitally important for kids (and adults) to stay hydrated when it’s this hot outside. The only thing that will help them properly hydrate is

Stretching for Low Back

Sometimes I might prescribe rest for back, when there is an injury involved; but in most instances, I will recommend that you get moving! Movement helps repair the discs, muscles, joints and ligaments in your spine. Pain may make it difficult to exercise, but lack of exercise can worsen the pain by leading to stiffness

Summer Exercise

Summer Exercise

I’ve heard many patients say (during the winter) that they can’t wait until it gets warmer so they can take their regular exercises outside. There is something different about being able to exercise outside – you can walk, run or hike and experience your beautiful surroundings rather than looking at the television in front of
