Natural methods of healing and health produce more good in your life than bad. The inverse is just as true, the more unnatural items in your body leads to unnatural results that harm. Quality of Life is an accumulation of every right and wrong decision of a lifetime, that result is our health.
Physical movement is a child's first language, and it is through movement that they first start to explore the world and to gain control over their body. It is the foundation in which learning is built upon. If this foundation is rocky or not maintained, it will play a role in their abilities to learn and retain information well.
Ever wonder why your neck muscles and traps are so tight? Why your low back hurts when you lift? The very thing you do without thinking about might be the problem. Breathing is so important, without it you can’t live and chances are you are doing it all wrong. We are born and conditioned to breathe using our diaphragm, better known as the muscle of breathe.
About 2 times a month we have patients come in the clinic with extremely specific excruciating pain around their rib cage. They mistake this pain for a heart attack which eventually leads them to visit the E.R. . After all the tests come back negative they end up in our practice still in pain needing help. The patient identifies the pain by taking a deep breath or upon inhalation, it persists until the tissue around the rib is mobile again.
You swim, bike, run, squat, press, pull, and all the other fitness things you have been trained to do. You train your muscles to keep you strong for a long and happy life, but what happens when the deeper stuff on which those muscles rely breaks down?
We have all been conditioned that proper warm-up is to just go for a run, do something to warm up the "core temp" before any activity. Even as a younger individual before baseball or soccer it was always "understood" we either had to throw at a 30-50 percent effort to warm up the arm or run laps to get the legs warmed up.
We are a natural healthcare facility that is solely focused on getting you in the best health of your life. We utilize all natural methods to get you well. One of the most powerful healing methods is movement. Health begins at pelvic floor and core stabilization. Moving to advanced movements, lifting heavy weight or pushing your endurance to quickly can lead to a lifetime of injury and dysfunction and ultimately compromised quality of health.
Migraines are almost a lifetime sentence of medication which is a horrible prison-like reality to be trapped. Migraines can be biomechanical, metabolic, or a combination of the two. Usually, when an individual has one-sided migraines the problem has a heavy biomechanic dysfunction. When the migraine pattern is on both sides, switches sides, or randomly moves around the head dictates a higher metabolic dysfunction. “Metabolic” means a problem within the organ systems of the body.
Your feet should never hurt. If you have foot pain at any point during your day then there is a problem somewhere in the lower half of your body. If you have pain associated with hip, knee, or ankle pain it's extremely likely that the foot problem is linked and is the same problem. Most Individuals will have an injury that will come and go away multiple times throughout the year.
“Dr.G Lawrence Rarickk conducted studies indicating that physical motion in childhood supports endocrine and neurological development as well as overall metabolism, leading to healthy growth of body and brain.” The brain needs stimulation and it gets the most stimulation from movement.
First off we were meant to move, our ancestors walked on average of 19,000 steps per day. Our brain is dependent on the reception of 19,000 steps per day. On average the modern human gets 8,000 maybe 10,000 if they are “active”. With this being said the modern human “you & me” are moving significantly less than what our “template of life aka DNA” says we need to each day.
Archetype was built from the need of a facility that not only fixed your symptoms you are experiencing but then educated you on how to never let it happen again. Usually weakness is the key to solving your original symptoms. We as a culture sit way to many hours in the day and it's destroying our bodies.
Here at Archetype, we have many services that are available for our patients that aid in or assist with the chiropractic adjustment. Today I will be talking a little bit about cupping, its benefits, what to expect, and what is going on when you are getting cupped during an appointment.
Here at Archetype, we strive to get you up and moving regardless of your fitness level because it’s important for your body as well as your mind to be able to move and adapt. We stress the importance of getting outside and finding an activity you enjoy! We at Archetype would love the opportunity to help you reach your next goal, or better yet, be the best version of yourself.
Have you ever been in a hurry and stepped off a curb wrong, rolled an ankle and had some discomfort with a minor limp for a day or two? Ankle sprains are common for all people, not just athletes. Here at Archetype, we deal with all types of injuries, big and small, including the ankle sprain.
At Archetype Health we reinforce the saying movement is life, this blog post is about why movement is critical to your health.
Altitude training has been used by professionals in all sports for at least 100 years, this is the exact reason why athletes will travel to Denver to train. Its been proven to increase adaptability and performance. I hope you enjoy this post. Dr John Palmer

At Archetype foundations two and four talk about your brain-body connection and movement with their importance in our day to day lives. Core stabilization as well as pelvic floor activation cover both topics. In this blog post we touch base on the importance of pelvic neutral, core strength, and what pelvic floor engagement means and how it has become a core staple around the office when communicating to our patients.
We get this question on a regular basis. Modern feet have been shoved in shoes and become almost inept. We wonder why plantar fasciitis shows up, why foot pain shows up, and many other dysfunctions in the foot and posterior chain. We as a modern society need to understand shoes serve a minimal purpose of fashion and aesthetics. Most shoes are not functional and literally prep you to fall as you age by crowding your toes and dumbing down the neurology of sensation.
I’ve followed these principles of health for the past 14 years. If you’re consistent with them you will be rewarded with a level of health others want and will consistently ask you what you’re doing. You have your health once, once lost, it’s extremely difficult to regain it back.
