Validating Chiropractic, Broncos are Redeemed, and I Have a New Beautiful Baby Niece!

Great weekend here in the Front Range; Broncos DESTROYED the raiders, spent 12 excellent hours in Dr. Slosberg’s Validating Chiropractic seminar, and most importantly my sister gave birth to her second child, Paige Lynne Korns!

Cannot wait to meet her at Christmas!

The seminar I attended showcased hundreds of peer-reviewed resources that validate the efficacy of chiropractic.  It was wonderful seeing the quantitative benefit of this great profession.  I was very happy that the importance of exercise was also stressed and the driving home point was that in order to provide our patients with lasting benefits, these forms of therapy must be combined.  I especially got a kick out of seeing a group of thirty chiropractors practicing the hip hinge, though a bit saddened to learn that this was completely new movement for a bulk of them, and here is why.

The hip hinge is an excellent movement that strengthens and protects the low back.  The hip hinge is a prime movement ala kettlebell swing, deadlift, and proper squatting.  This movement trains the lumbar multifidi (amongst other) muscles which is the largest muscle that crosses the L/S and SI and is responsible for 2/3rds of the lumbar spine stability(1).  If you are spine hinging (as most people are), then you are putting yourself at much great risk for ‘blowing’ out the low back.  If you have no idea what a hip hinge is or just need a refresher, call us at 303-300-0424 or visit DenverBack.com and we can help!
