Summertime is the time to get your kids checked.

Ears? Check.

Eyes? Check.

To send stronger healthier kids back to school this fall start now. There is no better time!

During July and August children can receive a spine checkup for only $25 at Franson Family Chiropractic. Children and grandchildren of current practice members are eligible to receive a spine checkup at no charge.

Our children get their teeth checked, their hearing checked, their eyes checked, and more. Don’t ignore the spine. It’s their suit of armor that protects their nerve system – the communication pathway for the body’s health and healing.

Summer is the time to get your kids checked!  If you’re a patient in our office and your kids haven’t had their spine checked, don’t wait until back to school – it’s too hectic…now is the time! During July and August we are granting amnesty for any kids or grand kids, of practice members, who haven’t been checked.  We will do a complete subluxation check up at NO CHARGE. All other children are only $25. Schedule at the front desk today.

The Plank Challenge

2014 May 23
by admin

Starting Tuesday, May 27th, we have a new challenge for the Franson Family Chiropractic team. How long can you plank?!

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the longest time in an abdominal plank position is 3 hours 7 minutes and 15 seconds and was achieved by George Hood in Newport, KY, on April 20, 2013.

Help us BREAK the WORLD RECORD! When you’re in the office from May 27th to June 5th join the team and add your plank time. We’ll provide the yoga mat, you provide the core strength.

Here’s what you need to know:

The majority of our daily routines (sitting, desk work, driving) weaken our torso and decrease our spinal stability. In order to maintain a stable torso while using our body to work, such as carrying something heavy, lifting items from the floor, or transferring power from our hips to throw a ball or punch, we need a strong core. A strong, stable, core with the ability to resist the stress of outside forces is far more important than having the ability to perform a million crunches or situps. The basic plank, performed properly, will be sufficient for developing good core stability.

How to Do the Basic Plank

  1. Get in the pushup position, only put your forearms on the ground instead of your hands. Your elbows should line up directly underneath your shoulders. Toes on the ground.
  2. Squeeze your glutes and tighten your abdominals.
  3. Keep a neutral neck and spine.
  4. Create a straight, strong line from head to toes – a plank, if you will.
  5. Hold that position.

 Things to Remember

  1. Don’t let your hips sag down to the ground. Sagging hips makes the exercise initially easier, but it’s not a plank and it defeats the purpose of the exercise.
  2. Look down at the ground. This is a good prompt for maintaining a neutral neck position.
  3. When your form begins to suffer, pull the plug. You’re only benefiting from the plank by actually doing the plank.
