Go Shoe Shopping


As we approach the official, unofficial start of summer; I feel that I should remind you of the importance of sunblock, hydration, water safety etc. But I’m not your mom. There is one summertime pet peeve I do have; shoes. Now there are people out there that’ll say we weren’t born with shoes so we don’t need them. We weren’t born with pants either, but they’ve become fairly integral to our lives. If our feet were wheels, our shoes would be tires. Just because the sun’s out we don’t go…

Sciatica, Low back or Pelvis pain


This month’s newsletter is brought to us by Dr. Martin. Who admittingly, as a single Millennial female; doesn’t have the arsenal of Gen X, father of 3 lame jokes, and outdated cultural references of Dr. Lee. Ask your kids to explain all the Tik Tok, Kardashian, and mumble rap references. Many people suffer from sciatica, low back or pelvis pain. Here is one reason why. The pubic symphysis is one of three joints that make up the pelvis, it is located about a hand’s length below your belly button. The other…

Masks?


“Badges? We don’t need no stinking badges!” And according to the CDC, the same can be said for masks, for now. New guidance dropped last week, mask usage is now based not on positivity or transmission rate; but on hospitalization. Currently, this leaves about 70% of the country (us included) in the now no longer necessary zone. It appears, that we might finally be on the back 9 of this thing (even though it’s the 9th time saying so). Mask rules are on and off again more than Ross and…

Welcome Dr. Martin


Graduated from Northeast College of Health Sciences (Previously New York Chiropractic College) in July 2021. I was born and raised on a small Native American reservation south of Buffalo New York, inspiring me to seek out natural forms of healing the body. I took advantage of my time in school to absorb as much knowledge as I could on how to heal holistically through chiropractic and nutrition. I have been taught many different treatment modalities such as Diversified adjusting, Flexion/Distraction technique, ConnecTX, Activator method, and Webster technique. I am well versed in…

Happy New Year


By now, we’ve done given up on at least 50% of our resolutions and trying to figure out what the heck we’re going to do with leftover black eye peas (not the dude Fergie and will.i.am ghosted, but the legume you eat once a year because grandma said so). New Year New Me? Nope, still the same ruggedly handsome son-of-a-gun I’ve always been. There was something new. In 20 years of practice, I’ve never taken more than 1 or at most 2 sick days in a row (there was a…

Happy Holidays


Just wanted to drop a quick note wishing everyone a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season & New Year. As usual, it got here before we knew it or were ready (even though it happens at the exact same time every year for at least the last 2000 +/- years). Susquehanna Spine & Rehab news: If you haven’t been in, we are missing a wall! Our lost equipment, I was promised, for the umpteenth time, will be arriving this week. For real this time. Hope you all get a chance to…

All new tables. state of the art and luxurious. All are designed with the comfort of female patients in mind and one for the mobility impaired. I’d love for you to come check them out….

Daily Dose of Fish Oil


October 2021. The US Preventative Services Task Force (the official name of ‘them’ and ‘they’) are saying put that daily aspirin away. A daily regimen of low-dose aspirin to most people at high risk of a first heart attack or stroke had been considered a first-line defense. Now though there’s mounting evidence that the risk of serious side effects far outweighs the benefit.  They are also reversing recommendations to take baby aspirin for the prevention of colorectal cancer. This guidance came from the fact that aspirin is an anti-inflammatory and…

School is Back


School’s back. So is the McRib, and masks. Hopefully, 2 of those 3 are only temporary. Though my kids and I have a differing opinions on what #1 should be. Yet we all know who #2 works for don’t we Mr. Powers? You are NOT required to wear a mask here, but feel free if you so choose.  While only about one-tenth of one percent (< 0.12% per official State stats as of the moment I type this) of new positives are among the fully vaccinated; healthcare providers though were asked…

Mask Mandate Ends July 1st


All things must come to an end. Eventually even Fast and Furious sequels will cease. As I’m sure we’ve all heard by now, so is Maryland’s State of Emergency. Among many things, the mask mandate and exemptions will soon expire. In the meantime; I have been told, in no uncertain terms by the State Board of Health, until July 1st masks will still be mandatory in health care facilities. I ask that you please comply with this directive. The last thing I need is guys and gals with badges showing…
