Coach Lombardi and Dad

This past weekend was an adventure for me.  I took my parents and my son Connor to Two Rivers Wisconsin for a 50th wedding anniversary for their friends in Texas where they winter.  If you know my parents you know of the health challeges they have had.  My dad is completly disabled and dependant on everyone for everything.  How my mom has been able to take care of him all years is beyond me.  I sure appreciate all they have done for me in teaching me values and doing the right thing and I’m still working on the patience which was challenging for me when dealing with my folks.  I sure am glad they are still around.   Took them to Lambeau field on the way back for a tour of hte Packer hall of fame.  That was very cool.

I was able to get out early on saturday morning and play the Irish course which is part of  the Whistling Straits golf course  where they are having next years PGA championship and 2012 Ryder cup.  What an incredible course it was.  Check out the picture of the 10th hole and all the sheep from Scotland they brought over.   You’ve got to be a good golfer to play it.  I shot 89 from the tips at 7000 yards and I wasn’t disappointed.   After golf it was the party and they had a 8 piece polka band, plenty of beer, and family style home cooking with the most incredble dressing and baked chicken ever!!

This week was also a sad week  Longtime patients and friends Ray Cottor, Ralph Boucher, and Sheri Leske died.  Sherri  was the mother of Chiropractor and best friend Dave Leske.  I’ll miss going over their and just hanging out with Sheri.  It’s tough when my folks generation is passing, and it seems you go to more funerals than you do weddings or birthday parties.  Please keep your thoughts and prayers out to these families.  My brother had Sherri’s funeral and I don’t know how he or my dad did it all those years.  I cry like a baby and have always had a tough time keeping my composure at funerals.  I prefer keeping people helthy and educating them so they potentially can live a longer healthier life and won’t have these chronic diseases that seem to be so prevelant in our society. 

One of the things that is completely overlooked is the importance of spinal health.   I can watch you walk, look at your posture, how you sit, how you move and it tells me a lot about how your body is or isn’t functioning.   Your spine houses the nervous system which controls all functions of your body.  In order for you to be healthy you need to have the circuitry of you nervous system communicating properly.  If your spine is stuck, not moving properly this can not only lead to back problems  but to much more serious health problems.    It never costs a dime to get your spine and posture checked at my office.

Great to see the high school athletes starting to prepare for fall sports.  If you are an athlete you really need to train year round.  You may have seen the the olympic cross country development team out and about our area rollerskiing .  They were lifting weights and working on functional movement patterns for strength and flexibility.  I talked to their coach Brian fish and the future is bright for the American cross country ski team.  

I think we should all have a  coach or mentor.   I always feel that learning is never ending.  I would love to be your health coach!!  Untl next time, enjoy your loved ones in spite of their shortcomings.  Enjoy the summer even if it hasn’t been the greatest weather yet, and don’t forget about Mary’s 50th birthday party at my house June 27th!!   Oh, I just about forgot, this upcoming monday we are having our Pizza night at the Village pizeria.  We have room for only 5 more people.  Sign up now, 294-3100, or email me steve@dredling.com  Steve Edling D.C.     p.s.  Happy fathers day!!

    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 ga
