    How can we control Whiteflies on our Gardenias, Satsuma, Ligustrum and Sweet Viburnum safely?

    We suggest spraying the undersides of the leaves with Sunspray Ultra-fine Oil. This will smother immature Whiteflies instead of poisoning them. Repeat the spraying at 3 week intervals until control is achieved. This oil is safe to use all year long.

    How long will it take?

    Each patient is different. Some people have had their problem for a long time, and others have only recently begun to experience their pain. Depending on the severity and duration of the condition and its underlying causes, you may be under care for as little as 2 weeks or as long as 3 months or more. Again, it depends on the nature of the condition, what the x-rays show, what the exam findings were, your overall health and fitness level, and how you respond to care.

    What can I do to stop my Crape Myrtle's leaves from turning black?

    The Crape Myrtle Aphid is causing the leaves to get a black coating. Crape Myrtle Aphids are small pale yellow insects that feed on plant sap. These insects secrete a sugary substance called honeydew as they feed. The black coating that you see is called sooty mold. Sooty Mold forms on the honeydew secretion not directly on the leaves. To stop the problem you can kill the aphids with Insecticidal Soap, Ortho Systemic Insecticide, Hi- Yield Malathion or SunSpray Ultra-fine Oil.

    Can Chiropractic care help my "slipped disk"?

    "Slipped disk" or actually "Bulging disk" has become a common saying, as if we were talking about a stack of slippery poker chips. Discs are actually the fluid-filled cushions that act as shock-absorbers between the dense bones of the spine. These discs allow the spine to support normal body movement and keep the vertebrae from grinding against each other and causing back pain. As long as the spine is lined up properly, the discs can do their job. When the spine experiences a continuing misalignment due to stress, accident or slight dislocation the "disk" may "bulge" out between the edges of the spinal bones and eventually lose it's cushioning fluid and the ability to regain more fluid. This results in vertebrae grinding against each other. Sound painful? In many cases this condition leads to severe pain. In the past, many patients looked to surgery for a reduction of this severe pain. New government healthcare guidelines do not readily endorse surgery because of the variety of complications that can occur as a result of the surgery itself. Surgery also does not attempt to correct the cause of the symptoms. Chiropractic care is a more conservative treatment approach. Your Chiropractor can be very effective at correcting the spinal misalignments that created the bulging disc in the first place. Your Chiropractor will work to gently realign the spinal bones. This realignment will allow the disc to regain the lost fluid that has reduced the "shock-absorbing" function of the disc which reduces or eliminates the discomfort. Don't "slip up" when you have a bulging disc. See your Chiropractor right away.
