Happy Holidays from Dr. Doman and the Team at Miami Sports Chiropractic + Yoga Center

Happy Holidays from Dr. Doman and the Team at Miami Sports Chiropractic + Yoga Center! Dear Friends, I hope this note finds you healthy and energetic in December! My daughter, Sage, is almost 2.5 years old and is as sweet as a piece of candy; but she isn’t in the office nearly as often these days… …it’s hard to close the door when your toddler thinks the patients are HERS, and it’s HER job to treat them! In the professional arena, I served another year on the Board of Directors at the state level for the Florida Chiropractic Association.  In the fall I was a guest lecturer at the University of Florida on posture and brain health in gaming. Stay tuned for...

Should Your Medical Doctor Send You to a Chiropractor?

In the past, chiropractic care has been controversial in the medical community and seen as an unproven method of pain relief.  However, The American College of Physicians has now officially recognized chiropractic care as the first point of treatment for lower back pain. This means medical doctors who have patients with low back pain are supposed to send their patients to a chiropractor before trying to treat pain with medicine! The role of a chiropractor is to assess and remove physical, chemical, and emotional stress that makes patients unwell. The most basic practice of chiropractic treatment is applying a gentle controlled force to areas of the spine which are not...

Do You Need To Take Your Baby To See a Chiropractor?

Do You Need To Take Your Baby To See a Chiropractor?

Do You Need To Take Your Baby To See a Chiropractor? Monday Morning, 9am: Doctors are NOT supposed to cry in front of their patients… I had my first cry with a patient this morning after 8 years of practicing as a chiropractor. My patient picked up her 13 month old daughter this weekend after her nap, who then laid her head on the mama’s shoulder to snuggle. This was the first time her baby snuggled on her since the day she was born. This mama came to me about a month ago and said, ‘The best I’ve ever felt in my life was when you treated me during my pregnancy.   I had difficulty breast feeding after my baby was born even with the help of a wonderful lactation...

How To Leave Bloating, Extra Weight, and Horrible Sleep in 2017

How To Leave Bloating, Extra Weight, and Horrible Sleep in 2017

This is 99 years old. I’ve been practicing as a chiropractor more than eight years now and treating generations of families. What a gift to witness how people age. Our genetics load the gun, our lifestyle pulls the trigger. The magical age where people start to notice that their bodies hurt and fall apart seems to be around 39 or 40. Before that, youth is on your side, lifestyle be damned. 😅 I love this photo not just for the beautiful yoga expert who is dancing on TV but what ‘good 99’ looks like. What are your goals for this brand new year? Good 40 or bad 40? Good 50 or bad 50? Good 80 or bad 80? Energy, peace, connection, and growth or endlessly visiting...

How To Pick Up Your Kid Without Blowing Out Your Back

Mamas and Papas! Lend me Your Ears! And Low Backs! It has come to my attention (in the form of panicking new patients) that our kids are causing our emergency medical bills. Swimming classes? Sure. Organic fruit squeeze packs? Why not. But low back spasms and emergency doctor visits are certainly not what most families budget for in time or money. How do our growing munchkins cause low back spasms? Bending over to pick them up. Repeatedly. As they put more weight on every day. And wiggle and squirm. And hide behind hard-to-reach places. Moms and Dads & Grandparents, did you know that there IS a right way and a wrong way to pick up your child?...

20 Seconds of Yoga to Enjoy The Rest of Your Day

If you’ve ever been to a chiropractor, it may be no surprise that you were given exercise recommendations, nutrition advice, or benefited from other complementary therapies.  The main goal of chiropractic care is spinal health and alignment, which is done through spinal adjustments and various soft tissue techniques.
