You're lucky to be YOU!
At this point many of us are starting to feel the hopeful aspirations of our New Year's resolutions fade away. Beyond that many of us may be once again putting ourselves down for our glaring imperfections. Striving for perfection seems to be one of the most accepted illusions of our time. Trying to be the perfect parent, coworker, spouse or to have the perfect body, status or income is an obsession each of us suffer from on one level or another. But the truth is that this perfection we all unconsciously seek will never arrive nor was it meant to. Imperfection is part of our design. Light cannot be without darkness, peaks do not exist without valleys. But knowing this is only the first step. Accepting it and therefore accepting ourselves and each other in all of our imperfection is the ultimate freeing destination. So with your resolutions, goals and growth this year, just do your best everyday and allow that to be perfect.
As luck is a theme in March, remember that after a certain age, health is never about good luck. Many of my patients are struggling with chronic pain/ill health and feel envious of people they see as healthy. Accept your body's aches, pains and imperfections as a conversation and an opportunity to grow. Look at the habits of those with the "luck" of good health and see if you could learn something from them. Begin to feel lucky for exactly who you are, exactly what you are struggling with and breathe a moment of peace in knowing you are doing your absolute best with what you've been given! Until our next adjustment...
Yours in health,
Dr. Heidi & the InnerMovement Wellness Team

with Dr. Broosan
KinesioTaping Method or "KTM"
is an advanced sports injury technique using specially designed kinesiotape applied in a specific way to promote joint healing.
Developed in Japan 25 years ago, KTM made it's way to the U.S. over the last decade and has gained notoriety with athletes such as Lance Armstrong and David Beckham seen sporting the KTM tapes.
KTM is applied specific to each patient's needs and has the ability to re-educate the neuromuscular system, reduce pain and inflammation. By releasing the tension off overused muscles, tendons and ligaments, the tape signals the brain to reduce the nerve output that triggers pain.
The elastic quality of the KTM tape allows the tissue under the application to move freely which promotes circulation of the blood and lymphatic fluid. This effect aids in the healing process.
Effective during the acute, chronic and rehabilitative phases of injury as well as for preventative measures, KTM can be used in conjunction with a multitude of other treatments and modalities such as Chiropractic adjustments, Acupuncture and/or Massage Therapy.
To see if KTM is right for you,

for your initial consultation &
note: a typical KTM application remains for three days.
After it is removed it can either be reapplied or left off for a rest period depending on the providers objective.

posted on YELP by Aubin W.
"Before visiting Dr. Heidi I thought that going to a chiropractor was a bit New Agey and I was fearful of the noise. Sounds strange, but it is true! Dr. Heidi quickly abated any fears or misnomers I had about chiropractic medicine. After our first hour plus long consultation, I knew that Dr. Heidi was the chiropractor for me - she is thorough and believes in a whole body and holistic approach to healing.
I have recommended Dr. Heidi to many of my friends and they all agree with me, if you need a chiropractor in the Glendale, CA area - she is THE person to contact!"

Eating for Injury Prevention
1. Eat more.
Don't forget that you're burning calories so your body needs fuel! How do you know if your body needs more calories? Keep track of your weight and eating patterns to make sure your eating a well balanced diet.
2. Pile on the protein.
True, a high-carbohydrate diet will fuel your running or workouts but remember you need 80 to 100 grams of protein a day to maintain your muscles and other soft tissues. Try to include some protein in every meal such as:
Soy burger: 14 grams of protein
3-oz. Chicken: 25 grams of protein
Glass of milk: 10 grams of protein
Hard boiled egg: 6 grams of protein
3. Don't forget zinc and iron.
Runners often skimp on these two important trace nutrients. You need 15 milligrams of zinc& 18 milligrams of iron a day. We recommend eating a zinc- and iron-fortified breakfast cereal or taking a multivitamin that contains both minerals. Good food sources of both zinc and iron include lean beef, poultry, seafood & lentils.
