Since I was a kid I have always been afraid of the water and swimming. If the water was deeper than I was tall there was no chance in hell I’d go into it. We would take beach vacations as a kid and I was always content to sit on the beach and watch everyone else enjoy the water. As I got older I would start to venture into the water, but rarely would I go past the water being up to my chest. This blog post is about going into the deep end.

Have you ever wondered if chiropractic is safe for seniors? I love this question because the answer is a resounding YES!

I have many patients that are in their 80’s and above. Let take a look at some of the benefits that seniors experience from chiropractic care. Continue reading →

Do you have a list of the things that are most valuable to you? Continue reading →
The human body design is for movement. It is made to move way more than we are moving it these days. Most people are struggling to get 10,000 steps a day. 100 years ago 10,000 steps a day was probably the minimum most people walked.

Something I hear very often in my office from patients is the statement, “I’m getting old.” When people say this it is in relation to the fact that are injured or having pain and it either came out of nowhere or it started after a very simple movement or activity. When people tell me they are getting old, I call them out on it. “You may be getting older, but you are not getting old” is typically my response. Continue reading →
It is official! Our office is officially located in Lincolnwood now and I am a Lincolnwood Chiropractor! All that really means is that the great service you have been receiving 4 blocks south in Sauganash is now being offered in Lincolnwood.
Thank you for all of your patience during this time as we were packing up the old office and also as we have been settling into the new office. The first thing you will notice when you come into our new space is the layout and the energy is much different. We now have an open layout office which allows for shorter wait times for you! I have always prided myself on having an office that sees patients on time at their scheduled time.
We are still on Cicero Ave, 4 blocks North of our old location. Our new address is 6443 N Cicero Ave which is just north of Devon.
We have been open a full week now and have seen a lot of our patients for adjustments in this time! If you haven’t been in to the new space yet, come on in and take a look. I’d love to show you around!
I am excited to announce that we are moving ! We are moving 4 blocks north. From 6015 N Cicero Ave to 6443 N Cicero Ave. We are on the same side of the street as we currently are. The biggest difference is we will now have PARKING!
We have been at our current space in Sauganash since 2008. We will now be located in Lincolnwood, IL. I look forward to still serving Sauganash, Lincolnwood, Evanston, Skokie and the surrounding neighborhoods in Chicago.
As our buildout progresses and we have an exact date of when we will begin seeing patients in the new office I will keep you posted. Please watch us on Social media, in-office announcements, and our email newsletter for future updates!
Thank you for entrusting us at Bourdage Chiropractic with your health. I look forward to continuing to serve you in our new, updated office space in Lincolnwood.
In the following video I show you the 3 exercises I do for a quick posture fix. I do these after I find myself sitting for long periods of time. These are great stretches for people who sit at a desk all day long, sit in a car for long time periods, or after a flight. Sitting wreaks havoc on your body and these stretches will help to correct that.

I spend 80% of my day on my feet. I’m either adjusting patients or standing at my desk doing paperwork. This last weekend I attended a conference and found myself sitting for hours on end. My body felt terrible! At the conclusion of each day of the seminar I did these 3 stretches and I was back to normal in no time!
The three stretches are :
Hip Flexor Stretch
The thoracic bridge is my favorite, but all 3 are important.
Previously, I did a series of 3 videos discussing sitting and the negative effects it can have on your health. If you did not see those videos they can be founds here:
Kids are spending more time than ever on portable electronic devices, and for good reason. The jury is out on how healthy or unhealthy this may be for their development and that is not with this article is about. What I want to talk about is how will this affect their posture!
