The Healthy Road Ahead

Monte Alban, Oaxaca

Why start a blog on chiropractic healthcare, wellness and fitness with travel photos?  What do pictures of Monte Alban, Oaxaca, Cottonwoods Lake Basin, climbing a rope at Venice Beach (OK, not much of a trip from home), tango lessons in Buenos Aires, a wild ride beneath a tiny slice of Iguaçu Falls, Brasil or climbing the Pyramid of the Moon, Teotihuacán, have to do with anything?  Read a little more and it will make sense.

Why not climb a rope? Venice Beach

My dedication to health and wellness started over 35 years ago.  It took a big leap during my sophomore year at San Diego State University when a guest lecturer came to my Clinical Nutrition class.  Within a few minutes of listening to the lecture I forgot what class I was attending. The professor was wowing us with photographs and stories of his trips to mountain tops, remote deserts, wild rivers, bustling market places, the tops of castles and other adventures, foreign and domestic. Then he asked a rhetorical question and you'll have to look at a few more photos to find out the question and answer.

“What do these pictures have to do with diet and health?” His simple answer: “You can’t get to any of the places I have shown you if you aren’t healthy.” Since that time I have attempted to live the kind of lifestyle that promotes health and allows me to experience my own adventures.

Since graduating from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in 1982 I have passed on my knowledge to thousands of patients.  If you are a willing partner in getting well, I can help you become healthier and break the hold of pain and physical restrictions.  With improved health and without pain, imagine how you would pursue your life’s passions.  What adventures would you seek?

You don't have to travel the world to see interesting sights, but you do need to be able to enjoy good enough health and be reasonably free of pain.  Take a walk up Hill Street in Signal Hill and you may be rewarded with a great view of Catalina Island off in the distance.  Turn the other way and Mount San Antonio might have a snow capped peak. Take the one or two mile walk in the El Dorado Park Nature Center, or the paved quarter mile walk.  

I will post further thoughts and information regarding chiropractic healthcare, exercise for pain control and fitness, diet for pain and inflammation plus wellness and health promotion. 

Be well and healthy,

Robb Russell, D.C.
