Painful knee

Years ago, if you wanted relief from knee pain caused by osteoarthritis, you would get a prescription for medication, cortisone shots, or ointments. Of course, those treatments only mask the pain without fixing the problem. The next step typically would be surgery. In some cases, knee surgery is the only option, especially for severe cases […]

Causes for Knee Pain

Did you know there are two joints in the knee? Both connect to the femur (thigh bone), the longest bone in the body. One joint connects the femur with the tibia (shin bone), which is the second longest bone in the body. The other joint connects the femur to the patella (kneecap). These bones in […]

Operations Excellence

I was reading an article the other day about how Chic-fil-A is statistically the most polite quick-service/drive-thru restaurant chain. One of the main reasons for the distinction is that their employees are most likely to say “please” and “thank you” to drive-thru customers. Truth be told, I don’t spend much time in these establishments and […]

As we age, the movement and structure of the foot, or foot biomechanics, tend to change. Intrinsic and extrinsic foot muscles become weaker and foot deformities develop. Some of the results of changing foot biomechanics are easily noticeable. You may notice that your feet are angled in a certain way. You could have fallen arches. […]

kids playing on new technology smart phones

Most people associate addiction with drugs, alcohol and gambling. When it comes to smartphones and other handheld devices, “addiction” is typically mentioned far more casually. People often joke that they’re addicted to their smartphones or certain apps. They sleep with their phones and panic when they can’t find them. They check their social media accounts […]

A Message for the Next Generation

As I prepared my presentation for seventh and eighth graders at Long Branch Middle School as part of a WEForum health education event, I went through some serious reflection and creative thinking. On one hand, if you had told me as a student in the late 1980s and early 1990s that we would have created […]

Jackie has been a good friend of mine for years. It’s not uncommon for friends and family to talk to me about their health, whether we’re at dinner, a store or a soccer game, and I thank God for ears to listen when approached. But Jackie was hesitant to open up about how she was […]

Dr. Proodian with his parents at his graduation

When you reach certain milestones in life, personally and professionally, it’s only natural to reflect. As I celebrate 25 years in practice as a chiropractor, I’ve found myself looking back at the road I’ve traveled, the people I’ve encountered, the joys and frustrations, and the road that lies ahead. I graduated chiropractic school in December […]
