Safe Dog Walks Seminar

You may be asking yourself, "Why is my chiropractor writing about safe dog walking?" Well, the reason behind it is quite simple; all too often we have patients walking through our doors with some type of injury from walking their dog.   

    If you have the pleasure of owning a canine companion, you may have an idea of what we're talking about. Does your dog ever lunge during one of your walks? How about constantly pulling you along down the sidewalk? It's unfortunate, but sometimes these habits can lead to the owner getting pulled off balance or excessive stress to the shoulder joint. Additionally, it's important to consider how these pulling and lunging habits are affecting the dog.

 

    This has become such a common occurrence in our office that we have decided to put together a seminar specifically on the topic! On Monday June 27th Dr. Brian Morrison along with professional dog trainer Wendy Symonds will be presenting "Safe Dog Walks. Avoiding pulling, lunging, and injuries to dogs and people." Treat yourself and your pup to the great information provided in this seminar. You can expect to learn about:

- Re-educating yourself so you can offer your dog a no pull relationship.

- Teaching your dog alternatives to pulling using voice cues.

- Finding the right equipment.

The seminar is completely free of charge, but space is limited so please call us today to reserve your spot! 410.465.0555

The Skinny on Fats Seminar

  • Morrison Chiropractic, P.A.

You've already taken the first step in reaching your health and wellness goals by becoming a Morrison Chiropractic patient or by visiting our website. Now is the best time to take it a step further and learn more about how you can improve your health at every meal. 

In the not so distant past fat has been the scapegoat, the villain, the evilest of all evils. Fat is misunderstood, garnering an undeserved bad reputation.

Dietary fat in vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and animals alike have a place on the table and in your body. Fat is essential for a myriad of processes in the human body.

Trusted doctors such as David Seaman, Dean Ornish, and Mark Hyman have been toeing the fat party line for decades and only recently have people started to listen.

If you want to learn how to welcome fat back into your life, you owe it to yourself to come and participate in this 1-hour seminar on, "The Skinny on Fats."

 

This presentation will help you better understand fat and teach you easy ways to integrate fat into your diet. Seminar objectives include:

  • Understand fat at a basic chemical level
  • Know the types of fat and why fat is essential in the human body
  • Learn why you should be eating fat, what kinds of fat, and how much
  • Cooking demonstration featuring healthy fat containing foods

Call today to register! 410.531.9985
The seminar is completely free of charge! We welcome you to bring your family, friends, and colleagues, but space is limited so call today to reserve your spot!

Center For Integrative Medicine's Health & Wellness Conference

  • Historic Broom Corn Building

    Since 2012, the Center for Integrative Medicine's Health & Wellness Conference has been changing lives with an innovative platform that encourages attendees to "Explore, Experience and Engage" in evidence-based, integrative modalities that are key aspects to improving health and wellness in the community. 

    One of the expert speakers for this year's conference is our very own Dr. Brian Morrison, and he will be giving a presentation at 11:30 am on Teaching Patients & Clients About Pain.
    
Chronic or persistent pain is a complex, costly and challenging public health problem throughout the world. Our brain and nervous system go through anatomical and biochemical changes in response to an injury. In some individuals, these changes can perpetuate pain and alter physical function even though the initial tissue injury has healed, creating a chronic or persistent pain condition. Worldwide, persistent pain is increasing. In The U.S. alone, incidence of persistent pain has doubled in the last 15-20 years. One in 3 patients sees a primary care physician (PCP) for chronic pain, yet most PCPs receive no training in this field. There is a growing body of evidence that suggests teaching patients about the science of pain can greatly reduce their pain, reduce medication use and improve functional outcomes.
