Towards the end of my undergraduate education I began experiencing intense migraines that would put me out of commission for an entire day, and at this time it was about once every three months.  These head splitting migraines became a more frequent occurrence during Chiropractic College, and every time it happened, I could pinpoint the same spot on the back of my head where it seemed like the pain was coming from.  Over the years I had seen multiple medical doctors, been adjusted by several chiropractors, and each one took their own approach to treating this ongoing condition a seemingly healthy young man was experiencing.  But one thing none of these doctors ever did – was take an X-ray of my neck to be able to see what is really going on.  Each doctor had their own theory as to the cause behind these migraines, and treated me as such.  The problem was that I seemed normal (enough) on the outside that there was no reason, in their eyes, to order any diagnostic imaging (X-rays, MRI, CT scan).

So make your appointment before reading this!

“Is that sound coming from you, or me?” This is the question most people ask when they receive a QSM3 adjustment for the first time. Dr. Russell Friedman, the founder of QSM3, would get the same question over and over again at the seminars and would answer by saying, “When you strum a guitar, is it the pick or the string that makes the sound? It’s both, right?” In this analogy the pick is the doctor’s wrist, and the strings are the fascial tension lines that run from head to toe, inserting all around the top of the head.

Here are some tips on how to maximize your benefits when using a foam roller.

  1.  Do not roll out your lower back. You jam the joints in your low back if you roll out this area, so instead use the foam roller around on the legs, hips, and glutes to release the tension in the muscles that connect to the lower back.
  2.  Support your Spine. Do not flop like a dead fish on top of the foam roller. You need to support yourself at all times so you don’t put your spine in a vulnerable position.

Much like your dentist helps prevent disease of the mouth and decay of teeth and gums, the Chiropractor will help prevent the degeneration of your spine and the nerve interference, dysfunctional movement patterns, and symptoms that come along with it. Everyone knows they are supposed to go see their dentist once a year for x-rays and several times a year for cleanings and check-ups. Wouldn’t it make sense to have your spine screened and checked for possible problems?


A vision to see future generations grow up with a better understanding of how to manage their health, and ultimately see them turn towards the preventive and natural healing methods of chiropractic care, exercise, and healthy living habits.
