No matter what, we want results. It’s that simple!
We have been conditioned to expect results – immediately!
We are living in a fast paced, get it done now, world. It is what it is!
If we start a new exercise routine, we expect to lose 20 pounds in TWO WEEKS!
If we start learning a new language, we expect results within a month, right?!
If we start a running routine, we want to run a 10K race, safely, now. Forget the fact that you haven’t run in years.
If we start a martial art- yup.. we want to be a black belt in a year!
If we start getting adjusted… we want the pain or problem gone instantly. Even though the problem may have been there for years.
I am not picking on anyone. Many of us have been raised to this way of thinking, me too – by the school system, TV commercials, friends, family, etc… we want it – now.
Results only come from – consistency! Repetition and time, do it, repeat, do it, repeat.etc. Most results, in the beginning, are imperceptible (not even visible). At first, with many endeavors and activities, results may not be visible for weeks, months or a year.
SO, DO IT ANYWAY… JUST BECAUSE YOU DON’T SEE IMMEDIATE RESULTS FROM YOUR CURRENT ACTIONS, DOESN’T MEAN YOU’RE NOT MAKING PROGRESS!
*Start that new walking program – no matter the results.
*start eating better – no matter the results
*Begin that yoga class – no matter the results
*start that 800 page novel – no matter how soon you finish it
**GET YOUR SPINE CHECKED WEEKLY – no matter the results. There is a positive result after EVERY adjustment whether you feel it or not. The adjustment helps the body remove nerve interference which allow your body to Function better on all levels!
Perceptible (what you can see) RESULTS TAKE TIME AND REPETITION, whether you get adjusted more frequently or start an exercise program.
Do what you know it GOOD for your health and longevity regardless of the results!
Much of where we are in life is determined by our habits. It’s our daily habits and routines that really determine if you are going to hit that goal or keep that resolution.
This year, start some positive habits that will make you stronger and more successful. Get more sleep. See your chiropractor more often. Focus on positive out comes. Put yourself in a state of “getting things done”. See and feel your top goals. Your habits are what shape you, make them count because everything you think, say, and do counts. Nothing is final. Learn and grow from each experience!
“It’s not what we do once in a while that counts, but our consistent actions. And what is the father of all action? What ultimately determines who we become and where we go in life? The answer is our decisions. It’s in these moments that our destiny is shaped. More than anything else, I believe our decisions – not the conditions of our lives – determine our destiny” Anthony Robbins
See you all in the new year!
P.S. – Chiropractic – I know with certainty that weekly adjustments will improve your neurology and health! If you are interested in consistent weekly care – I will MAKE it affordable.
This is an article I wrote for a local magazine. I wanted to share it with you. I wrote it for people who work in the service industry but it really applies to all of us. Dr. Scott Timpanelli
What Can Chiropractic Do for You?
Picture this. You get to work around 4 P.M. on a Friday night. You know it’s going to be busy tonight. And then it starts. Here come the customers. You are moving fast, non-stop, serving customers, dealing with the kitchen, etc. But at two A.M. when the night is finished, you realize you’ve been on your feet for ten hours! You haven’t eaten anything, and you’ve been breathing secondhand smoke all night. Sound familiar?
Would you agree that you have experienced some STRESS? Stress on your spine, your legs, your feet. Stress from the customers, your boss, etc. Sound familiar?
So, what can chiropractic do for you?
Let me first explain how your body works. Your brain and spinal cord control every single function in your body. Billions of fine wires called nerves run down your spinal column and out to every organ, cell, and gland of your body. These nerves control your digestion, your breathing, your ability to fight disease, your ability to do your job, your ability to fully get the most out of LIFE! That’s right, chiropractic is about LIFE!
“But Dr. Scott, my back hurts, my feet hurt, and I am exhausted! Can chiropractic really help me?” YES. Chiropractic is based upon the premise that your body is a self-regulating and self-healing organism. There are 24 bones of the spine called vertebrae. Their job is to protect your spinal cord, keep you upright, and help you move in many ways. The nerves from the brain exit out of holes on the sides of the spine. Due to everyday stress, one or more of these vertebrae can misalign. We call these misalignments – subluxations. These subluxations cause nerve interference between the brain and the body. In other words, nerve messages from the brain to the body are interfered with or altered in some way. You may not even feel them because most of your nerves are not for pain, they’re for function. You don’t know what your liver is doing right now, but it’s performing hundreds of functions without your conscious control or awareness.
Now, back to these subluxations. They are caused by everyday STRESS – standing or sitting all day, everyday worries, or toxins in the air and food just to name a few. There’s really no avoiding them. You can take steps to reduce these stressors, but life goes on and we can’t stop living. So, the chiropractic approach to life and health is to build power in the body. We simply check your spine for these misalignments and then provide a gentle push called an adjustment.
The adjustment helps correct these misalignments and several AWESOME things may happen. You may start to feel better; your range of motion and movement may increase; your muscles may relax; and you may just be in a better mood. But some of the greatest benefits are within and not felt outwardly. The adjustment removes nerve interference which allows your nervous system to work BETTER! Organ function and systems can improve. You may sleep better and feel less stressed. Your digestion may work better. Your exercise activity may improve, etc, etc. I cannot make individual claims, but one thing I do know is that your body will function BETTER without nerve interference caused by subluxations.
As you can see, chiropractic can do a lot for you and for your family. It can open up another world for your health; and most importantly, it can add to your LIFE. A well adjusted life starts with a well adjusted body.
(*from Jason Meyerson D.C. Get-Adjusted.com)
Spinal mis-alignments (Subluxations) interfere with YOUR NERVE system and the NERVE system is used to express LIFE and control and coordinate every activity of the body. As a result, interference to your NERVE system CAN AFFECT everything, including YOUR WALLET.
If you have nerve interference it could decrease your energy level. This may cause you to perform sub par at work. Maybe you don’t make that sale at the end of the day or your boss passes you up for a raise or promotion, because of your lowered performance.
Subluxations may decrease your level of health, by reducing the function of the organs and systems of the body. This could include, for example, your immune, cardiovascular, and respiratory systems.
You may spend more money trying to treat illness, going to medical doctors, on medicine, and taking more days off work. Being subluxated may decrease your memory, concentration, and mental capacity. In a classroom setting, these things can lead to poor performance and a grade point average below your capabilities.
Your NERVE system plays a vital role in the proper function of your sex organs. A compromised nervous system could decrease your fertility or function.
Your ability to handle stress can be lessened by a compromised nervous system. How you are able to handle, react and adapt to each situation that arises depends greatly on a proper functioning nervous system.
The glands and cells of the body depend on a good nerve supply so they can make the chemicals the body needs. A disruption to the messages traveling along the nervous system, to these cells and glands, will result in a chemical imbalance that could affect mood, digestion, metabolism, healing and more.
Is there a financial cost to weekly lifetime chiropractic care? Yes, but there is also a big payoff and a big savings to living subluxation free.
What do you want this year?
Do you want to double your income? Lose 20 pounds? Start a business? Better Relationship? Get in shape? Plan a beach vacation? Whatever it is.. get clear!
Note to self: What we focus on – grows. Where we focus our attention – is what we get.
If one is clear about getting healthy – then we need to focus on activities that will raise health. This may require some new habits, subtle shifts in daily routines, some time to read and learn, and it may cost a little money.

Thanks for visiting our website!
If you ask anyone on the street what chiropractic is. . . . believe me . . . they’ll tell you. The public already knows what it is. . . “fixing bad backs and stiff necks” . Can you blame them? Just take a look how chiropractors advertise. . .. .. . neck pain, back pain, sciatica, car accidents. . . . etc. Now, this blog is not about judging how anyone practices chiropractic. Our scope of practice allows us to use a variety of procedures in the office – adjustments, physiological therapeutics, acupuncture, heat, ice, traction, etc.. And any procedure performed in the office within the scope of practice is legally fine. However, do you think this may confuse the public as to – – What is chiropractic?
There are a few ways to define chiropractic, but I like to keep it in really simple terms.
Chiropractic is a science, a philosophy, and an art that deals with the relationship between the bones of the vertebral column(the spine) and the nerve system. It is based on the premise that the body is a self-regulating and self-healing organism. The objective is to correct vertebral subluxations to remove nerve interference so the body can heal and work better from the inside out.
Check these websites for longer definitions.
And I’m sure there are more.
Do you think the average person new to a chiropractor’s office is exposed to the above definition? I don’t think so. They come in with their problem. Their problem is addressed, discussed, analyzed , explained and treated. Maybe chiropractic is part of the treatment, but maybe it’s not. I’ve heard of people going to a chiropractor for months and not receive a chiropractic adjustment.
So, if this patient’s problem went away then . . . wow. . . chiropractic worked and then they stop coming in. And if the problem didn’t go away . . . oh well. . . I tried chiropractic. . . it didn’t work for me. . . and they stop coming in. Either way . . . they stopped coming in. And now, they’ll be subluxated for the rest of their life. The profession as a whole is not telling the public the powerful truths about what we do!
With straight chiropractic we take a different approach.
Straight chiropractic’s only focus is to analyze , locate and adjust vertebral subluxations simply because they exist! It is non-therapeutic in nature. The only tool used to correct vertebral subluxations is a chiropractic adjustment. Every human being needs this service, and I recommend that every human being get their spine checked a minimum of once a week for LIFE! My fee system and office procedures reflect these recommendations.
Vertebral subluxations are dangerous. They put pressure on the brain and spinal cord and they are caused by every day stress. These spinal misalignments interfere with the messages from the brain to the body and they may never cause symptoms. And no matter what is going on in your life, your body will benefit from this service.
But we are still missing something here. There is a metaphysical component to all this.
What really controls the body? Is it the nervous system?
What is the difference between someone who is alive and a corpse? They both have a brain and spinal cord!
