Welcome to our office's Chiropractic newsletter.  We'd like to entertain you, inform you and even inspire you a little. We'd love to hear from you; feel free to write to us with any questions or comments.

Hello Everyone! While this is not a formal, information packed newsletter, I wanted to let everyone know about an upcoming change in hours and to remind you about the Utica OD Best of the Best contest that is on now through June 23, 2019.

We will be CLOSED the week of July 1, 2019 for some overdue vacation time. Our last day in the office will be Friday, June 28, 2019 and will resume normal hours on Monday, July 8, 2019.

Our current normal hours are as follows:

* Any Friday we are open, we start the preceding Wednesday at 12:00 PM (noon).


PLEASE visit our web site for up to date changes to the schedule and special hours. If in doubt, give us a call.

It is that time of year again that I shamelessly ask everyone for their vote in the Utica OD "Best of the Best" contest. Our office made it to the top 5 in the preliminary round (thank you to everyone that voted). You can vote everyday through June 23, 2019 and vote from as many e-mail addresses as you have. Thank you for voting for our office! Here is the link:


Remarkable Case


I wanted to share a recent case I had in the office.

Difficulty Nursing / Constipated / Reflux / Fussy  A 2 month old male was first seen in May, 2019 for numerous issues including Difficulty Nursing, Constipation, Reflux, Fussiness and Plagiocephaly (mis-shaped head). He was referred to our office by a local PT who I have worked with in the past. This infant was in mild distress and was always labeled as "fussy" at daycare. His father told me he frequently cried and was rarely happy. He was evaluated and his pelvis, upper cervical spine and cranium were adjusted. By his next visit he was improved and dad said he could put him down and he did not have a fit. By his third evaluation he was 90% improved. I only checked him twice more and as of his last visit, he was Chiropractically near perfect and a happy tyke (as were his parents and old brother). Everything has not been tried until the patient has had a specific chiropractic evaluation and care.
