                We are Moving! 

Dear Patients,

It is with great pleasure that we write to inform you that on September 14, 2017 we will open our doors in a more spacious and comfortable office. Our new address will be: 4004 W St. Joe Hwy - still here in Delta Township, barely 2 miles from our current location. Our phone number will not change, it is still 517-327-7463 and our contact email address is still cornerstone@drkillian.com. The new location is near the corner of Waverly & St. Joe, on the north side of the Home Depot/Sears Outlet/Ollie's parking lot and we will have much better parking facilities. 

Since we opened for business at our current location in 2001 your loyal support has helped us grow, and now we need more space to serve you better. We have been praying for guidance concerning our location for quite some time and feel that this is an answer to those prayers. We will have better adjusting rooms, the ability to add more massage rooms, and offer additional therapy services as well.

As we progress in accomplishing the details involved with such an endeavor, we will make ourselves available to answer any questions about the new location and our services. Please feel free to ask and we'll be happy to help. We look forward to continuing to care for your chiropractic and massage needs here and seeing you at our new location soon!

We sincerely thank you for all your prayers.
God Bless,

Dr. Brian Killian & Staff
Cornerstone Chiropractic and Massage

Don't Let Housework Be a Pain in Your Back

Household chores can be a pain in the sacroiliac. Unless you're careful, routine activities around the home— washing dishes, vacuuming, even talking on the phone— can strain your back, including the sacroiliac area near the tailbone, and result in debilitating discomfort.

But you can protect your back by knowing the right way to go about such activities, according to the American Chiropractic Association (ACA).

Consider lifting. It doesn't matter whether you're picking up your child or a heavy bucket of water, you need to do it the proper way to avoid injury.

How? Bend from the knees, not the waist. As you lift, hold the item as close to your body as possible. If you have to turn to place it, step in the direction of the turn. That way, you're not twisting your body and straining your spine.

Back-Saving Tips

The American Chiropractic Association suggest the following do's and don'ts for chores and relaxation:

  • When you wash dishes, open the cabinet beneath the sink, bend one knee and put your foot on the shelf under the sink. Lean against the counter so some of your weight is supported in front.
  • When ironing, raise one foot a bit. Place it on a small stool or a book to take some strain off your back.
  • To vacuum, use a "fencer's stance." Put all your weight on one foot, then step forward and back with the other foot as you push the vacuum forward and back. Use the back foot as a pivot when you turn.
  • While talking on the phone, don't cradle the phone between your ear and shoulder. That can lock up the spinal joints in the neck and upper back, and cause pain. Instead, hold the phone with your hand or use the speakerphone.
  • While watching television or relaxing, don't use the sofa arm as a pillow. The angle is much too sharp for your neck.
  • Use a cold pack if your back begins to hurt. Wrap an ice pack in a towel moistened with warm water. The warmth gives way to gradual cold, which likely will alleviate the discomfort. (No ice? Try frozen veggies instead.)
  • If pain persists for more than a day or two or if you experience numbness, tingling or weakness in your arms or legs, see a doctor of chiropractic. A doctor of chiropractic is an expert in spinal health and can help identify and treat your problem.
