Cervical spine

Chiropractic Care for the Cervical Spine

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
