Happy Fathers Day
I wanted to take the time to acknowledge father's all over the world.  It is so important to let father's know how much they are appreciated.  We get busy and forget to take the time to let them know that we love them and how they have made a difference in our lives.
Remember love is spelled TIME, so this father's day take the time to spend with your loved ones.  Some of our father's may no longer be with us so take the time to think of the good times that you have shared.
Maloof Chiropractic would like to honor father's by offering them the gift of good health.
For the month of June all father's receive a complimentary consultation with Dr. Maloof so they may discuss their personal health challenges and live a healthier life.
Remember your first wealth is your health!

Most Common Golf Injuries
Golf can be so much fun, but I see many injuries that can be helped and prevented.  The most common are golfer's elbow, tendonitis and rotator cuff shoulder injuries, carpal tunnel, neck stiffness, lower back pain and sciatica.  What most people don't realize is that PROPER MOTION IS ESSENTIAL FOR PROPER FUNCTION.
When joint function is impaired, there is a reduced range of motion, inflammation, calcium buildup, and scar tissue.  This can be caused by repetitive motions such as the golf swing and improper biomechanics of your swing, and forgetting to stretch before and after your game.
The traditional treatment of these problems involves splinting the joint to reduce movement, pain medications, muscle relaxers, steroid injections, and even surgery!  What else can be done? 
Today, a more common sense approach is being taken.  Joint mobilization, like chiropractic care for the spine, is being used in the care of elbows, wrists, shoulders, knees, ankles, and other joints of the body.  Helping to restore normal range of motions to joints that have become "locked up", "jammed", or injured, seems to improve blood circulation, reduce scar tissue, and speed the healing process.
Dr. Maloof is uniquely trained to detect and help restore proper joint function of the spine and the extremities.  Find out if you can be helped by arranging for a consultation and thorough examination today!  Stop spending your time taking medications and waiting on the sidelines, it is time to get your health restored and get back in the game!

Stretch Your Way To Better Golf
Most golfers think that taking a few practice swings is a good warm-up and they consider that their stretching.  What most people don't realize that if you don't stretch you body before and after you play you have a greater chance of injury to neck, shoulder, elbows, wrists, and lower back.  You may not feel the repercussions right away but it might affect you later in life. Here are a few suggestions to do at home or on the golf course.

These are just a few tips on stretching.  Dr. Maloof has a handout of golf stretches.  Please stop by the office and you can pick one up!
