Dear [CustomerFirstName],

Buuurrrr! It sure has been cold here in Maryland. At Howard County Chiropractic, we are so ready for Spring! As we wait for the weather to warm up and the flowers to start blooming we thought we would update you on all the fun and exciting happenings at the office this winter. Check out what we've been up to below:

Poor posture, it won’t get better on its own... HCC’s Postural Restoration Program can help!
The car, the desk and video games. What do all of these have in common? Besides the fact that most of us spend way to much time “in one” or “in front of one”? They all promote horrible posture. Patients often comment “I have horrible posture” and imply it’s their fault. The truth of the matter is that although there are lots of things we can all do (psst…we here at HCC know what they are) to improve posture, most of what we do all day promotes poor posture. So how do you fix it? Funny you should ask. Dr. Elek, Dr. Veronica and I have been hard at work designing a specific program to address this very common (and pretty serious) condition. It is designed to identify underlying biomechanical issues leading to poor posture, correct them and provide a long term strategy for avoiding there return. It is designed for all ages so even your 11 year old who loves his or her x-box can benefit! Interested in scheduling an appointment? Simply call the office or check out this page to learn more.

HoCo Chiropractic welcomes Candy Branch to the team…
As many of you are aware, there is a new face around HCC these days. Candita (or Candy as she likes to be called) joined the HoCo Chiropractic treatment team at the beginning of 2015 as a Chiropractic Assistant. Candy (who is from New Jersey like yours truly…”Jersey in the house”) brings with her two years of experience as a chiropractic assistant. Please join us in welcoming her to the team.

Yoga at HCC has been a BIG HIT!
For years, I have wanted to bring additional health & fitness related classes to the office; something outside the Chiropractic services we offer all day long. Yoga was always at the top of my list as numerous studies have shown it to be a great compliment to the care we provide here at HCC. Well, last fall we made it happen! HoCo Chiro offered its first Yoga class and wow…what a response. The Saturday morning class filled up in just a few weeks and soon we offered an additional Monday night class. With both classes full, we are now in the process adding a third class to be held on Thursday nights. Interested? Check our website or Facebook page for more information in the coming days.

Speaking of yoga, check out our upcoming workshop...

Yoga for Healthy Feet: Saturday April 28 1-3pm @ HoCo Chiropractic
The foot has 26 bones and 32 joints and has to be stable as it is our foundation, the platform upon which we stand and walk. When standing 100% of our body weight passes through the feet.

In this workshop we’ll become familiar with the structures and mechanics of our feet and the relationship of our feet to alignment throughout the rest of our body. We’ll also discuss common foot problems including plantar fasciitis, flat feet, bunions, and ankle pain. This workshop is appropriate for anyone who has an interest in learning more about how to maintain and rejuvenate the health of their feet. Cost is $25 dollars. Call the office ASAP to sign up, only 8 spaces available!

Dr. Elek Obtains Additional Certification
In January Dr. Elek traveled to Kansas City Missouri for four days of extensive training (and subsequent testing) leading to a certification in Active Release Technique (ART) for the Lower Extremity. Prior to this certification Dr. Elek had earned certification in both Upper Extremity and Spine Techniques. With this latest achievement, he is now certified as a Full Body ART Practitioner! NICE WORK!!! ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. As many of our patients have already experienced, this technique is extremely effective in speeding recovery times by directly addressing soft tissue issues.

HoCo Chiro Out and About in the Community
Since opening our doors in 2003, one of HCC’s highest priorities was to be engaged with the local community. Whether it be a talk at the library, providing massage at the local 10K or doing a workshop for a specific group we have always strived to be close to those we serve; our patients. Well, thirteen years later, we are still at it. Here is a quick glance at where we’ve been and where we will be.

Sole Flip Flops…Pre Season Sale:
It’s that time again! Believe it or not before too long all of this nasty cold weather will be behind us and the nice warm weather will once again prevail. Once it does for many of us, flip flops become the shoe of choice. As many of you already know, the typical flip flop is just plain bad for your foot, providing absolutely no support. Sole brand flip flops offer a tremendous amount of support and cushion and can go a long way in avoiding many of the common foot injuries we see around the office.

For the next several weeks, our entire supply of flip flops and slip ons will be on final clearance. All styles will be $25! Buy two and save even more: Two pairs for $45!!! This is just about half of the suggested retail price. Don’t wait, this supply is sure to go fast!
