Dr. Bill's Blog
I’m Dr Bill Schumacher. Thanks for visiting. Read articles about healthy living choices and the many benefits of chiropractic care. Get tips and insights on spinal care, injury prevention, nutrition and much more.
For example, do you know what causes headaches, neck and arm pain? Do you know how many movable vertebrae you have? Do you know the most common misconceptions people have about over-the-counter pain killers? I offer a wealth of information, some of which may surprise you, and who knows…maybe even help you live healthier and happier.

I found this informative video on the American chiropractic Association's website regarding backpack safety. I like it and thought it would be a great topic for this week's blog. I hope it helps you get your little ones off to school safely. Enjoy!
