Health, Wellness, and Longevity. Adding Life to Your Years and Years to Your Life!

Hello everyone, I started this blog in effort to extend my reach beyond those that I can help in my clinic alone. As a chiropractic physician I have a deep love for health and people. I am excited everyday to go to my office and help people. I have literally seen thousands of patients have their lives changed as a result of chiropractic care and lifestyle changes.

Each day I strive to bring the latest and greatest information on health to my patients. I have even started a radio show to help with this effort as well. You can listen in on Southern Oregon's talk radio 880AM Tuesdays @11:00AM. Or watch for post on my youtube channel that I am just starting (

My goal for this blog is to educate you on how to live a better quality of life, whether that be through awareness, tips and advice, or even support. As I have said, I have a deep love for helping people. Please follow my blog and start making changes in your life and health today.

"A universal intelligence is in all matter and continually gives to it all its properties and actions thus maintaining it in existence."

Chiropractic philosophy: there is a power that is rooted deep within the body; this power has been instilled with the knowledge to make our bodies function as they have been designed. Just as a fetus forms from cells into a heart, brain, fingers, and so on... our bodies will seek to be healthy on their own. We ourselves do not choose to have aches and pains but that power or intelligence that exists within us will create pain to help our conscious mind realize that a change is necessary in order to heal. Chiropractic helps open the nervous system so that all parts of the body can communicate with one another as they were designed to by our creator.

As a physician of chiropractic and christian, I have a belief in a higher power; I know there are those of you that may not believe in a creator but hopefully you can acknowledge the power within the human body. My belief in the "universal intelligence" within each of us sets me apart from normal practitioners in many ways, all of which I am proud of. When a patient reports to my office having chronic debilitating headaches I immediately look for the cause of the "symptom." Headaches along with all the other aches and pains of the body are signs or indications of other problems. The human body represents the problem in the form of pain; as a chiropractic physician I do not treat the pain but rather the cause. That same patient that reports having chronic headaches will most likely suffer from cervical segmental disfunction or what chiropractors call a subluxation. Also, the causation for chronic headaches can be toxicity or chemical imbalance, dietary habits, and even sleep. In order for me to properly diagnose and treat the patient I have to look at all the determining factors that may play into the symptoms they are experiencing. I do not seek to cover up the symptoms; I seek to address the cause!

If the same patient that came into my office with the chief complaint of chronic headaches went to a general practitioner or immediate care center, the odds are that little care would be given for the cause and pain pills or anti-inflammatory medication would be given to dull or relieve the symptoms. I have seen this hundreds and hundreds of times!

My goal is to help patients choose chiropractic care before drugs and surgery; but also to educate them to listen to the signs and signals their bodies present. The body is a self healing organism, within it is the ability to become healthy; chiropractic's philosophy is to aid the body in repairing itself by opening the nervous system pathways that flow to all parts of the body. Add life to your years and years to your life through chiropractic care.

If you have been thinking that chiropractic care may help with your aches and pains... your right; but it is much more than that! It will help with nervous system function, healing, energy, stress, and longevity. Now is the time to act, call McFarland Chiropractic and speak with my staff to schedule an appointment today. 541-772-5000
