#148 Shoulders

We carry a lot on our shoulders these days: giant purses, laptops, and the consequences of bad computer posture and hours of cell phone use. It’s no wonder that a lot of us have shoulder pain! Daphnie helps explain what our shoulders are made of, what causes all that pain, and what exercises we can do to strengthen our body’s biggest and most complicated joints. Plus, we go taco crazy in “Best Choice”.

#098 Chiropractic Care with Dr. Laura Roos

Chiropractic care is one of those things where you either use it and feel super passionate about it, or you have no idea what it is. Daphnie is our resident chiropractic cheerleader, and Joanna (no surprise) is clueless. Our guest, Dr. Laura Roos, explains what chiropractic care is, how it might help you feel more awesome, and what to look for when you’re finding a practitioner.

#020 Recovering From Injuries

So, you’re injured. What do you do now? Daphnie takes us through what to do for ourselves in the first 48 hours, when you should see your doctor, and what that doctor might tell you. Joanna talks about what to look for in a physical therapist (and what makes a bad one) and Daphnie makes the case for chiropractors and acupuncture. Our message: don’t be afraid to get help! Feeling good is worth a bit of your time, focus, and money. Plus, Daphnie does her best to pick out a Best Choice at Subway.
