Healthy Aging

Partner Highlight – Summit Spa

Susan Alward – Owner Summit Spa As the owner of The Summit-Skin Care & Hair Removal I know that great skin health is not created by external factors alone.

Why strength training is essential for overall health

There are a number of reasons why I recommend strength training for anyone who wants to achieve optimal long-term health. As a chiropractor, I have a triad of things that I believe are essential to optimize our physical well-being. These three things are alignment, flexibility/mobility, and strength/stability. Our greatest interest in our practice is the long term well-being of our patients. As much as we love helping people overcome physical challenges our greatest joy...
