Segment One: The Role of Neurology in Sports and Athletic Performance by Dr. Adam Bruene from NeuroActive Health & Fitness.
Dr. Bruene earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Illinois and graduated from the National University of Health sciences in 2009, with a doctorate of Chiropractic. Since his initial education, Dr. Bruene has continued to search for the most advanced techniques and innovative approaches to chiropractic care and physical medicine. He prides himself on staying current with the newest research, and adapting new techniques and protocols into his work. He is a certified McKenzie practitioner and is working towards becoming only the second chiropractor in Illinois to be certified in Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization.
His goals in creating NAH&F was to bring to you a place where you could truly invest in your own health, through education and preventative measures. The design of NeuroActive Fitness classes is an opportunity for all that are interested to participate in a “self-fixing” protocol, and prevent those from needing to become “patients.” It is a neurological pre-habilitation strategy that fits seamlessly with whatever it is you’re already doing, and can help prevent injury while also improving athletic performance.
His clinical approach is to utilize every tool at YOUR disposal, and to help you get well fast. He believes in treating patients fewer times and focusing on active strategies that the patients could perform themselves producing long-lasting or even permanent solutions.
Segment Two: Steve and Dr. Cole discuss the NBA/Chicago Bulls pre-season strategy to minimize injuries, the importance of ramping up in dealing with the large total number of games, player rest and avoiding play too soon after injury.
Segment Three: Karen Malkin from Karen Malkin Health Counseling talks about environmental toxins from use of personal care products and electronics.
The average woman in the United States uses over 15 personal care products daily, the average man about six. Each product containing a dozen or more chemicals! Many of these chemicals are carcinogens, neurotoxins and contain reproductive toxins!
You pay attention to what you put in your mouth, so why not what you put on your skin?
