Laser Therapy

By: Dr. Seth Hosmer, DC

Rehab: Spine Opener

By: Dr. Seth Hosmer, DC

This mobility video is one of my new favorites – we needed a way to help patients release chronic tightness in the upper and lower Thoracic spine, as well as the Lumbar and SI region.  This routine does it all, and does it well!  The magic is in the relative motion you get in between the deep layer and the superficial layers – you can feel your spine relaxing as…

(Re)Learning To Run

By: Dr. Seth Hosmer, DC

Ask anybody that is a not a regular runner, and they’ll likely tell you that they don’t run for exercise because they hate running.  I can virtually guarantee that it was not always that way – if you asked the 6-year old version of that same person if they loved to run, and they would probably take off in a full sprint to show you just how much they love…
