Celebrating 40 years strong – and getting stronger

Celebrating 40 years strong – and getting stronger

1980. A Georgia peanut farmer, Jimmy Carter, was president. There was no internet. Cable news was in its infancy. Michael Jackson was the biggest act in music. And – we sure do remember this – the Philadelphia Phillies were on their way to winning their first-ever World Series.

On March 30 of that year, Dr. Mark Kemenosh earned his chiropractic license.

The runner’s nemesis: IT band

Runners love to hate their IT bands. Trouble there can keep you off the road, the runner’s worst nightmare.

Tiger Woods Golf Facts – The Masters – Chiropractic

Hey guys! Some updates from Dr. Gross! As the resident sports addict of the office, and with no live sports to discuss, I’ll take a look back in the history books. With The Masters having supposed to be played next week, here are some interesting Tiger Woods Masters stats:
