Driver Arrested for Stockton Hit and Run Accidents

A driver of a white Dodge Ram pickup truck wanted in connection with multiple hit and run accidents in Stockton, CA, was arrested on May 18th, 2020.

Gentle Back Stretches

Many of our clients suffer back pain following an auto accident. Although health care providers are generally still operating during the COVID-19 shutdowns, many of us are avoiding outings unless they are urgent. Below are a few gentle back stretches to do at home. These are movements that are often prescribed by physical therapists and chiropractors to strengthen the core muscles. Core muscles assist with everyday functional movements. These exercises should only be attempted if you have been cleared by your health care provider to perform a home exercise program.

It also has negative physical effects, specifically with regard to heart disease and mental decline. In his study of the Blue Zones, several areas in the world with populations that enjoy the greatest longevity, author Dan Buettner found that a component shared by each Blue Zone was a strong sense of community.

Ways to Stay Sane and Healthy When Homebound

Sacramento gyms are closing, and many of us are practicing a period of self-quarantine to slow the spread of COVID-19.  Pipeworks closed earlier this month and all 24-Hour Fitness locations have followed suit.

Magnesium: An Essential Mineral

The essential mineral magnesium is involved in many crucial processes within the human body.  So it is alarming that studies have shown that more than two-thirds of people in the U.S. are magnesium deficient.  Complications from a magnesium deficiency include but are not limited to diabetes, migraines, seizures, anxiety, chronic pain, heart disease, and insomnia.  Some holistic health care providers feel it is nearly impossible to overstate the importance of magnesium.
