Your First Need? WATER!!

Recently, I lent my backcountry water filter to my daughter for an upcoming camping trip she was taking. The filter company has a very appropriate name- First Need. No, no, no, contrary to popular belief, the first need is not coffee : ) We talk a lot about nutrition at Francis Chiropractic but one of [...]

Video on Fish Oil/Omega 3 Supplements

What is a Paradigm?

Dear Friends, What is a Paradigm? No, it is not two coins (sorry, I couldn’t pass up a good pun!) It is much more powerful than that; it’s the way you look at things, it is your thoughts. Thoughts drive behavior and behavior controls results. Dr. Dan what are you talking about?! I’m saying that [...]

Thank YOU!

Dear Friends, Last week I suggested everyone look at being grateful and I will take my turn here. In the  27 years we have been in practice in Plymouth, I have never been more thankful than I am for our staff. The last 10 weeks they covered for each other when some were unable to [...]
