We're already in the midst of our first snowfall of the season, and Peoria is turning into a gorgeous snowglobe. There probably won't be enough snow on the ground to demand shoveling or salting, but it isn't too soon to consider that there is a right way and a wrong way to shovel snow.
Here are some handy tips to keep you safe during shoveling season. And if you need a tuneup before you start, or if you tweak something when you're shoveling, remember to stop by your friendly Peoria chiropractor for a chiropractic adjustment!
Thanks to all the veterans of our armed forces here in Peoria and in America. Thanks for all of your service, sacrifice, patriotism, and love of our country. We would not be able to enjoy our freedom without the self-giving of so many of you men and women. It is highly appropriate that we remember veterans in the same month that we celebrate Thanksgiving: the two holidays are closely linked in my mind. So, again, a great big "Thank you" to all our local Peoria and Illinois veterans.
And a special thanks goes out to those veterans who are patients here at Johnson Family Chiropractic of Peoria. We're honored to be able to serve you in return!
