Do you plan to use your feet today?


The shape, flexibility and mobility of different parts of your eye ball determine your sight. Any variation and you might end up thinking that raccoon near the bins is a cute little puppy and boom, you’ve got rabies. That’s why they make glasses. The shape, flexibility and mobility of your feet determine your posture and gait cycle. Any variation and you’ll have foot, ankle, knee, hip, pelvic, low back, mid-back pain and even headaches. That’s why they make orthotics. Orthotics look like regular ol’ insoles (which aren’t worth the foam…

Is a CBD Product Right for me? 


What is CBD? CBD is the healing portion of the cannabis plant. Think Aloe; we have been using the healing aspects of the aloe plant for years internally and external. In fact, as many people probably already know, herbs and plants were not only the original but only source of medicine throughout the vast majority of human existence. CBD is one such example. What does CBD do? CBD has been known to slow pain receptors essentially delaying the feeling of pain from reaching your brain. It also is similar to natural Omega fatty acids which…

Injury Recovery


Let’s face it no one has time or the patience to be injured or recover properly from an injury. The most recent Journal of Dance Medicine & Science had an interesting article about the return to full dance activity following therapy for the most common dance injuries. The top 2 limiting factors in returning to activity were: age of the injury and completion of treatment protocol. In short, what kept dancers from getting back to dance were putting off going to the doctor and then not doing what the doctor…

Tis the Season for Snow


It’s that time of year when everyone starts losing their mind over a little snow and every other news segment or blog entry is about how to safely shovel snow. Well, I’m not going there. In over 16 years of treating patients on the East Coast the amount of people that I’ve seen hurt themselves shoveling snow is very small compared to those who hurt themselves vacuuming, doing dishes, tying shoes, sneezing, slip n sliding, running down the stairs on Christmas morning in fuzzy socks and busting their backside. Why…

Grumpy Baby Syndrome


We had a baby visiting the office a few weeks ago with his mother and grandmother. Like anyone at the front desk would do, the girls and I (Mrs. Spine) up front were laughing and talking to the baby. He is super cute but man was he grouchy. This may have been the grumpiest baby I have ever met. The mom went on to explain that he was grouchy all the time and they were trying different formulas to try to help. We explained that often times grumpy babies can be adjusted…

What does Dr. Lee have in common with the Golden State Warriors?


What does Dr. Lee have in common with the Golden State Warriors? Not much really except he can dunk it on LeBron; wait that’s a lie. The real answer: they both use TheraGun to treat debilitating and nagging soft tissue injuries. What is TheraGun? It is a hand held devise that vibrates the muscles and breaks up scare tissue. This allows the muscles to move more freely and decreases increases range of motion.  In short its trigger point therapy on steroids! Tell Me The Science: TheraGun was engineered to effectively treat…

Playing Through the Pain Part 3


I’ve attended a few of the NFL chiropractors pre-season training seminars. What I really want to do is be a motorsports chiropractor. A good friend of mine practices right outside of Charlotte. Her patient base is almost exclusively NASCAR drivers and crew. I can’t really relocate to North Carolina, so I fantasize about winning the Powerball and buying my own Indy Car team just so that I can be the team doctor, and get good seats for the 500. I’m even a member of the International Council on Motorsport Science…

Playing Through the Pain Part 2


Back in my day, if we got hurt playing ball; we were promptly examined and diagnosed by a highly trained professional. And by highly trained professional I mean the equipment manager. Our treatments alternated between ‘ice it down’ and ‘walk it off’. Most of the patients we see are suffering from the long term effects of people who just tried to “walk off” Old sports injuries Auto injuries Lawn care injuries Sitting at the desk too long injuries “Here, hold my beer” injuries “Well, there was this girl/guy” injuries and…

Playing Through The Pain


When I was in high school I was a cheerleader (Just in case you couldn’t figure it out; Mrs Spine, not Dr. Lee, I know this is a shocker). My senior year I had pretty serious injury I fell directly on to my back from a stunt. My parents took the usual precautions. I went to my paediatrician then therapy and rest for 4 weeks. I was anxious to get back. When my parents asked how I was feeling I answered “great;” this was not true at all! I did…

Have You Tested Your Brain Health lately?


Many of my long-time fans remember that Magnesium was my favourite vitamin supplement. If you do, then you should remember my John Kerry/Mitt Romney moment when I flipped-flopped to liking Omega 3’s more. Why do I like Omega 3? Omega 3 (Not 1, not 2 but 3) fatty acids are not just anti-inflammatories, but they are un-inflammatory. Why is inflammation not my friend? Inflammation is the internal process that facilitates disease and symptoms. It is a complicated and multi-step process. Inflammation is caused by injuries and disease, but also what we…
