Another star athlete treats the symptom and ignore the core problem

September 22, 2011

One of the star players in the NFL, Quarterback Peyton Manning for the Indianapolis Colts, has had several neck surgeries in the last 2 years, the most recent being a cervical fusion a few weeks ago that will likely keep him out for the entire season. Why is he having these problems? John Elder, our clinic director in Nashville, explains why here:

Golf, sunshine and dancing

September 18, 2011

hey guys, sorry for no posts in a bit. It’s been a hectic time. I’m up in Dallas this weekend going through a training seminar put on by the Titleist Performance Institute. These guys do a great job of helping golfers understand what is going on with their bodies, assessing the golf swing bio-mechanically, and using various functional tests and exercises to help figure out where golfers are limited in their ability to get the most from their games, and then improve their body’s ability to function effectively while swinging a club. It’s VERY complementary stuff to what we do with Egoscue and there is a lot of mutual respect between our two organizations. In fact our VP of Therapy Protocol, Brian Bradley, is on their advisory board.

I’m looking forward to bringing what I’m learning back to Austin so we can help our golfers even more effectively. And if you’re a golfer, I encourage you to check out TPI at the link above. They have a lot of great articles and videos to help the golfer genuinely improve their game.

now, in the meantime, a client forwarded me this video and I LOVED it. We get inundated with ‘bad news’ to the point where I think some folks and organizations actually WANT us depressed and frightened. Well, watch this video and you’ll feel your emotional state just light up for the better, it’s great!

A message to our clients about the fire outside of Austin

September 9, 2011

As many of you know, Texas has been enduring its worst drought in history and this has created conditions ripe for fires. And there is a huge one burning southeast of Austin near a town called Bastrop. It has burned thousands of acres, burned down hundreds of homes and displaced thousands of people. And these people need our help.

Our office building is doing a drive for goods to help support these people. If you are a client and coming in to the clinic next week, or would simply like to drop off items to donate, you can bring them to the clinic and we’ll get them to the management office where the collected items are being donated.

Here is a list of what the relief agencies are asking for:

Ø Gift Cards (HEB, Wal-Mart, etc.)
Ø Bottled Water
Ø Pet Food
Ø Bed Sheets
Ø Towels
Ø New Pillows
Ø Toiletries
Ø Blankets

If you would prefer to make a cash donation you can do that here:

We thank you for your help and support in this time of need. Our prayers are with both those impacted by the fires, and those working so very hard to contain the fires. It is tough, hot, hard work and we’re grateful for all their efforts.
