Snap, Crackle, Pop

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

 

We’ve all heard these noises before from someone stretching out their hands.

Others may have even warned you that your knuckle- cracking habit can lead to health concerns.

This common habit has a simple explanation.

The joints in your body have spaces between them. These spaces expand when you stretch your fingers out.

The pressure in the joint then decreases and the gasses are dissolved into fluids causing a release of pressure, like the sound created by opening a bottle of champagne.

The fluid returns to its proper place, popping the little bubbles of gas as the joint settles back into place. This is what causes the familiar cracking sound.

This explanation also comes with good news: cracking your knuckles has not been shown to lead to arthritis.

The movement can even feel good because when your joint stretches out, the nerve endings in your fingers are stimulated.

The Perception of Chiropractic

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

The all-natural approach to healing that chiropractic is based on has helped many people live better lives.

By removing the underlying cause of your pain through chiropractic adjustments, your body can heal on its own, naturally. It’s gentle and safe and the results may surprise you.

Want to see why so many people trust chiropractic and are satisfied with their care? Give us a call and let us show you first hand how chiropractic can make a difference in your life.c

A recent study conducted in Australia chose patients from 100 systematically sampled chiropractic clinics to participate in a survey about the perception of chiropractic care.

The purpose was to describe patient characteristics, (demographics, socioeconomic status, perceived health status) and to further understand the perceptions of chiropractic care and services in Australia.

We thought you might enjoy a peek at the great results!

Perception: 68.7% of patients chose chiropractic care as their first choice for musculoskeletal complaints and 21.2% went in for general health and well-being.

Demographics: While 67.1% of survey takers were female patients of chiropractic care mostly between the ages of 45-65, both men and women frequent chiropractors for their health.

Satisfaction: So far only a small portion of the population in Australia sees a chiropractor, yet most survey takers would receive chiropractic care again as 97.5% were satisfied with their service.

Join us in welcoming Dr. LeClair to our team!

Monday, May 12th, 2014

jessWelcome (back) Dr. Jessica LeClair!

Jessica LeClair, D.C., is a recent graduate of Northwestern Health Sciences University. If she looks familiar, it’s probably because she’s been an intern at Langford and Karls Chiropractic for the past year!

Dr. LeClair grew up in Apple Valley, and attended Rosemount High School. Her pre-chiropractic coursework was completed at University of Wisconsin–Oshkosh, where she was a chemistry major with emphasis in biomolecular science. Her first experience with chiropractic care was when she was a high school student with incessant headaches; prior to this point she had been considering a career in teaching or nursing, but as soon as she was introduced to chiropractic care she was hooked.

In her spare time, Dr. LeClair enjoys rock climbing, reading, and spending time with her friends and family. Most recently, however, much of her time has been spent planning her August 2014 wedding.

Dr. LeClair loves meeting new patients of all ages and walks of life, and firmly believes in empowering them to take an active role in their care. She has a deep-seated passion for wellness and helping people feel their best, and is so excited to be a member of the Langford and Karls Chiropractic team! To set up your appointment with Dr. LeClair, give us a call at (651) 699-8610.

NATURALLY DYED EASTER EGGS

Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs

NATURALLY DYED EASTER EGGS

April 10, 2014 · by  · in 

Ingredients:

  • Hard boiled eggs (as many as you want to color)
  • 1/4 head red cabbage, chopped; 4 cups of water; 2 T of vinegar – makes blue
  • Skins of 3 red onions and two handfuls of spinach; 2 cups of water; 3 T vinegar – makes a jade green
  • 2 T paprika; 1 cup water; 2 T vinegar – makes a pale orange
  • 2 T turmeric; 1 cup water; 2 T vinegar – makes a vibrant yellow
  • 1 beet, peeled and chopped; 4 cups water; 2 T vinegar – makes a pretty pink
  • Skins of 3 red onions; 2 cups water; 3 T vinegar – makes a purplish brown

I’ve heard you can do 1 cup frozen blueberries soaked in 1 cup of water (without vinegar) and get a grayish-blue if you want another color.

Directions:

  1. With each colored ingredients in a separate pot, bring to a boil with the designated amount of water. Boil for about 15 minutes.
  2. Turn off the flame, remove the ingredients, and add designated amount of vinegar. Allow mixture to cool.
  3. Pour the colored waters into separate dying containers with a hard boiled egg in each (you can do more than one if you want some of the same color).
  4. Let your eggs soak in dye over night. We made them in the afternoon, and removed them from the dye the next morning and let air dry.

So for example for blue: Combine 1/4 head cabbage, chopped with 4 cups of water and bring to a boil. Boil for 15 minutes. Remove the cabbage from the water, and add 2 tablespoons of vinegar. Allow to cool before transferring to your dying container with the hard boiled egg. You would repeat this for each of the colors.

Any leftover ingredients can be put to use after! We love boiled beets in salads, spinach with eggs, and cabbage with a number of other things. Ingredients you do not eat, can be composted.

And since these eggs were dyed in food, feel free to use them for your favorite deviled egg recipe. Enjoy!
