I received this question from a former student of mine. This is also something I come across a lot in practice. After asking my patient how she is doing, I'll occasionally get the response, "Not well or I wouldn't be here." Now, I'm more than happy treating your pain. In fact, chiropractors are very well equipped to get their patients out of pain. But, did you know, pain is a fairly poor indicator of health? And chiropractors can offer so much more than just pain relief. Let
These are made in mini muffins tins, but could also be made in a square pan and cut into pieces. The muffin tin is just so easy and makes the perfect size portion.

I heard the coolest analogy listening to Robb Wolf's podcast the other day. A guy had written in asking a question about his workouts. He asked if he should keep squatting heavy even though he had a nagging hip injury.
