  • Keeps me running

    I have a job that has me driving quite a bit but the work is a very repetitive motion that twists my back an hips. Dr. Russel has been able to keep me straight, literally, and pain free for over the past year. The diagnostic tools he has also showed how much improvement I have had over the last year as well. His knowledge and abilities have kept me in top shape to keep my business running and enjoy working out with my son. The team at Premier are all very helpful and have impacted my life for the better in so many ways.

  • Great family-friendly care!

    We have a large family with lots of different needs to be met and Dr. Hulbert does a fantastic job caring for each and every one of us! I love walking out and hearing one or more of the kids comment that things feel better after spending time in pain. Shelley works with our crazy after school schedule and that's a tall order. We never have a hard time getting an appointment, the visits are prompt and efficient. Toy area and a changing table are super helpful as well. Thank you Dr. Hulbert and Ms. Shelley! We love our chiropractic family!

  • Such a relief!

    I am ashamed to say that I waited until I was in extreme pain and unable to stand erect before I sought out a chiropractor. I am so glad that I found Dr. Hulbert. Not only did I start to feel relief the first day, but my hope that things could be better was restored. Now, things are better and I am so grateful to have a partner in making sure it stays that way.

    We had our first initial appointment for my son, who was feeling a little unsure. Dr. Hulbert put him at ease right away. He explained everything before he did anything so he knew what to expect. Afterward, my son told me how he liked everyone there and how nice they were. Bonus no headache complaints so far!!

    Becky E.

  • Excelent Chiropratic Experience

    Premier Family Healthcare has provided excellent service for me and my 14 yr old daughter. My daughter was unable to train & play soccer with her club team for a few weeks due to lower back pain. After several adjustments with Dr. Russell Hulbert, she was back in the game and feeling great. I personally have dealt with "on again off again" lower back pain and degenerative disc pain in my neck for over a decade. I've tried physical therapy, massage therapy, steroid injections and a chiropractor with a much different approach than Premier Family Healthcare. I had come to the conclusion that my lower back will be fine but I will just have to live with the Chronic pain in my neck. I couldn't have been more wrong; Dr. Hulbert has made adjustments to my neck that have been an absolute game changer for me. I highly recommend this facility for all your aches, pains, and overall health!

    Shelli R.

  • Very friendly and professional

    The office is always clean and welcoming. I always feel like a valued client and Dr. Hulbert is great.

    John B.

  • Thanks doc !!

    I've been seeing Dr.Hulbert as a new patient for a little over a month now, and the improvements that I've experienced have been nothing short of amazing! I'm almost 53 years old and for the most part I've been healthy and fit for the majority of my life with proper eating and varying levels of intensity of resistance/weight training and aerobic training. In addition, I've got a compressed disc and herniated disc in my lower back from an injury I incurred back in 1992, but I've continued to maintain an even fitness level to ward off any surgeries.... and along with those injuries, I've always experienced some sort of pain or nagging discomfort. However, over these last several weeks after being under the AWESOME care of Dr. Hulbert, I've experienced a new level of flexibility, mobility, and ease of proper posture I haven't had in a couple of decades....all I can say is that I should have done this YEARS AGO!!

  • Extremely impressed

    This was my very first visit to a Chiropractor and I was extremely impressed with Dr. Hulbert and his staff from the moment I walked in the door of his office. Their facility is extremely clean and has a professional, yet relaxed atmosphere and Lucy was the first person I met when I walked in...Lucy definitely set the tone for a wonderful first visit to Dr. Hulbert's office. She checked me in with all my paper work, and did one of my initial assessments as a new patient, and I thought she did a great job. When I met with Dr. Hulbert, he took his time with me to understand all my issues, and I feel confident that he is going to get me on the right path to a better quality of life!

  • he is AWESOME

    being a retired fireman I have had hip, neck and back issues for the past 30 years. I hadn't seen a Chiropractor in the last 10 years and was having some real issues. I started seeing Dr. Hulbert in October 2014. I started feeling results within the first month. His passion and true care for his patience is amazing. I haven't felt this good, forever! he is AWESOME. Due to the progress I have made my wife, son and daughter all are seeing Dr. Hulbert and they too are feeling great. What a difference he has made in our lives, he is the only one I will trust with our Chiropractic care.

    Absolutely great - Dr. Russell is personable and WELL versed in his knowledge and care. I am impressed by his attention to detail, his pre-adjustment study and his care plan. Lucy is very kind and always ready to answer any questions. Ease of scheduling is terrific. I'd highly recommend this office. After a winter of limping around, I'm getting back quicker than I imagined would be possible.

Six Strategies for Chiropractic Wellness this School Year

chiropractic for children Backs and Backpacks
image

Sending our kids off to school can carry loads of worry as a parent. We shouldn’t let their health be one of them. So here are six practical and easy-to-follow tips to their best health this school year.

Carry Correctly

 

Backpack weight is one of the most common questions that chiropractors receive. Your backpack can weigh between 10 to 20 percent of your total body weight (no more than that), so it does differ from child to child. Because smaller children don’t have as much muscle mass, no more than 15 percent of their total body weight is recommended.

 

Wearing your backpack properly is also important for spinal health. Though it may be cool to wear it on just one shoulder, it can cause misalignment in your spine and back pain. There are two straps for a reason. Make sure that they fit snugly over your shoulders and that it doesn’t droop below your belt line.

 

There are also some backpacks that come with a third strap that fastens below the sternum to help distribute the stress and take pressure off of the shoulders. This should be used when you plan on wearing the backpack for longer periods of time.

 

A good backpack with memory foam or wider shoulders is an investment in your education as well as your health!

The Proper Way to Read

It’s an excellent development that children are now receiving tablets or iPads in school so that they do not have to carry heavy books. This does minimize the weight of the backpack, but it creates a new problem. They are staring at a screen all day long, most likely with improper posture as their head tilts forward and goes over the top of their shoulders.

 

Children (and adults) need to be cognizant of their head posture while they are using a tablet, computer or even a textbook. Make sure that your tablet (or textbook) is in a stand that tilts toward you and that your head doesn’t tilt over your shoulders.

 

More and more children are visiting the chiropractor because they are having postural issues with their upper back and neck as well as headaches. As a general rule, you should not do anything in a certain posture for more than 50 minutes. After this time period, take a ten-minute break. Get a glass of water and rest your eyes. This will help reduce headache frequency as well as misalignments and other chiropractic issues.

Fight Germs

Back to school means exposure to all types of new germs and people. You need to be in good health to fight off colds, bacteria and viruses. Getting adjusted by a licensed chiropractor promotes proper immune system function. The nervous system itself (which is connected to your brain) controls your immune system. By getting adjusted, it allows the communication from your brain to effectively and efficiently control the immune system to fight off the germs. It can also help you feel better faster if you do get sick.

 

You can also prevent illness by washing your hands and keeping them away from your mouth. Promote good hand washing skills by using warm water and scrubbing for at least 30 seconds.

Know Your Nutrition 

While schools are now trying to improve the nutritional values of their lunches, you still don’t know everything that they contain. Packing a lunch is really the best option because you control everything that is in it

Try to avoid processed foods and anything with preservatives. A great lunch will have water, protein, fruits, vegetables, dairy and even a little something sweet (just watch the added sugar amounts). Easy proteins to include are grilled chicken, hard boiled eggs or real turkey breast. Avoid processed deli meats due to nitrites and nitrates that are found in them.

Prep Ahead

To lower your stress levels, make a plan on Sunday for everything that will happen over the week, including your meals and activities.

 

Know that you need to pack a lunch every day?  Try cooking a chicken so that you know that you have protein ready and available.

 

Too tired to cook after Wednesday’s soccer practice?  Make a casserole Sunday and put it in the freezer. When you get home on Wednesday, all you have to do is put it in the oven.

 

New research shows that decision-making is a depletable resource. By planning ahead, you can prep and get ready on Sunday. This allows your week to go more smoothly, gets your family to eat healthier and eliminates the stress of having to think of meals.

Drink Water 

You should always drink an eight-ounce glass of water as soon as you wake up. It re-hydrates you from not drinking the entire night. It will actually start to stimulate your internal organs and gets them moving. It also helps you to wake up.

Do you stretch in the morning?  Have that glass of water first! It will get the hydration back into not only the muscles but the discs in your spine.
