This works great for knee problems.

What a fun filled weekend it was for me.  It seems like August is a time of month to get as many fun things done as possible before the weather starts changing.

Friday night I went to the Raiders-Vikings game at TCF bank stadium on the U. of M. campus.  What a great place to enjoy a football game.

Pre-season games typically aren’t that good.  Usually reserves trying to make the team get to play and the top players are generally held out or only play a quarter.

I do enjoy seeing players get there chance and then taking advantage of it.  Adam Thielen who played at Mankato State had a stellar game for the Vikis friday night.  He ran a punt back 40 yards and made a great tackle on special teams.  While he is a long shot at making the team he sure looked impressive as he was staying in the moment of the game and bringing it big time.

If everyone on the vikes brought it like that kid did they would be unstoppable.   Lets see how the QB situation plays out.  I’d go with the rookie Teddy Bridgewater.  Throw him in there and see what he can do.

The magic starts friday August 22 at OHS field

My neighbor Steph Nelson got married this weekend and it was awesome to see her so beautiful and so happy.  What an incredible moment for her and Brandon and all her friends and Family.

I also played in the Parsons electric annual golf tournament on sunday.  It’s my buddies from high school Mike Northquest, Jeff Erickson, and Jeff Parks.  We had so much fun and even tied for first place at 10 under.

These fun summer weekends are awesome, especially with the nice weather we have been having.  Get out and enjoy it because we all know what’s right around the corner.

So I’ve been dinged up for about 10 days now with my right knee.  I had just been over doing it and and it flared up playing baseball.  It gets swollen and then I lose strength and range of motion and it leaves me gimping around . When you can’t do what you want to do it sure isn’t fun.  It’s getting better everyday since I’ve been doing what it takes to get the swelling down and improve range of motion, then start getting the strength and stability back in it.  The ARP machine works wonders at getting the swelling off the knee and improves circulation so range of motion can improve.  It’s incredible how fast the muscles shut down once you have an injury.  It’s so important to start the rehab process immediately.  Sitting around and hoping things get better just isn’t going to do it.  The pain may go away but you really neeed to get full fucntion back in to whatever area the problem is.  Then you also need to re-condition the whole body, especially if you have been layed up for a bit.  This has been a good reality check for me to help me understand what patients go through when they are hurting. There is also an emotional side to it which sometimes can be difficult than the physical side.  If you are interested in seeing what ARP can do for you just email me or call for a free ARP session.

One thing I really promote is the benefit of regualr chiropractic adjustments.  I’ve got a new intern here at our office, his name is Steve Siqueiros.  He will be with me until mid November when he graduates forom Chiro school.  It’s going to be great getting more htan my weekly adjsutments.  I work out pretty hard and my body and mind need a recovery and adjustments help me so much with this plus overall energy and well-being.  Steve  is from St. Croix Falls and has played for the Osceola Braves and now plays for the St. Croix River Bandits in baseball.

The Osceola high school football team is looking fast.  Look out Somerset!!

Until next week, get out there and enjoy life to the max.  I’m here to help add value to your life and help you be all you can be!!

  • Would you do this for your spouse?

    Anyone who has been or is in marriage and has kids understands the complexities of what a marriage can bring both good and bad.
