Important COVID-19 Coronavirus Information!

Due to chiropractic doctors being designated as "life sustaining" by Governor Wolf, Synchrony ChiroCare will remain open.

Synchrony ChiroCare is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all of our patients. We understand that millions of Americans seek care for recovering from an injury or chronic pain, and chiropractic is essential to their recovery.

We want to adjust every patient to help with their health goals. However, those patients who are in wellness or maintenance care with no musculoskeletal complaints are considered elective by the state government, and your appointment will need cancelled at this time. We will only be allowing a minimal number of patients in the office at a time. Please stay in your vehicles until directed to come into the office so that the necessary sanitizing procedures can be implemented.

We also need you to help us. An infected person does not belong in our office at this time. Please use common sense. If you, or someone in your household have a fever, or symptoms such as body aches, cough, or shortness of breath, etc. please call us to reschedule your appointment to a later date.

Finally, we at Synchrony ChiroCare will continue to monitor the situation and take any additional necessary precautions.

Stay Safe and Take Care of Each Other,
Dr. Mike Bennese and the Synchrony ChiroCare team

Flu Prevention and Winter Wellness for the Savvy, Health Conscious Individual

Have you ever wondered why there is such thing as a "seasonal illness?" Why would viruses and bacteria go on vacation and only come around during the fall and winter months? They don't. This is a myth.

The truth is that we are exposed to viruses and bacteria every day of our lives; the thing determining who gets sick and who stays well is NOT the presence of the viruses or bacteria, or the ambient temperature; it is the state of our Immune Function.

So why does our immune function tend to be lowered during the fall and winter months? Well, that is the big question. A popular theory, and one I believe to have much truth based on current research is that our Vitamin D levels tend to be lowest in the fall and winter, only to begin rising again in the spring and peaking in the summer months. Why? Natural Vitamin D is produced in our bodies from cholesterol via ultraviolet radiation from the sun. Due to the tilt of the earth, we do not get exposed to much UV radiation in the fall and winter months (not to mention, we wear a lot more clothes during those times). Vitamin D is strongly correlated to optimal immune function.

Proper Vitamin D levels should be maintained all throughout the year. How do you know how much Vitamin D you need? Proper blood testing can determine that. Vitamin D levels are one of the easiest levels to normalize. Contact us to learn more about Vitamin D testing and supplementation.

10 Tips For Flu Prevention and Winter Wellness

  1. Vitamin D sufficiency
  2. Omega 3 Fatty Acid sufficiency
  3. Probiotics sufficiency
  4. Eat fresh fruits like oranges and strawberries for Vitamin C. Forget the synthetic Vitamin C tablets and eat vegetables like green and yellow peppers, sweet potatoes, and cabbage
  5. Eat Healthy Animal Protein, Nuts, Seeds, Vegetables and Fruit (Avoid wheat and sugars - yes, even whole grains, as these down regulate your immune system)
  6. Exercise regularly.
  7. Reduce emotional stress - Gratitude exercise, Relaxation, Breathing, LAUGHTER. Watch funny movies.
  8. Reduce physical stress - See us at Synchrony ChiroCare to remove spinal stressors and restore Spinal-Brain Relaxation Pathways.
  9. Get adequate sleep
  10. Wash your hands with regular soap; forget the antibacterial soap.


NOTE:
As far as Vitamin D and Omega 3 Fatty Acids sufficiency, an old saying comes to mind: "In God we trust....all others bring data." Don't blindly supplement with Vitamin D and Omega 3's. See us for proper testing to ensure you are taking adequate (but not too much) levels for YOUR body.
