Motion: critical for life

Motion is critical for life and is required for the function of every organ and cell in our bodies.

When joints in our bodies are restricted and not moving properly they send pain signals (nociceptors) to our brain. This is a warning signal that something is going wrong in that area of your body. The warning signals start way before you can actually feel pain.

When you get proper joint motion back into those joints, our bodies have anti-inflammatory signals called mechanoreceptors that inhibit and over shadow the pain signals. These receptors are also a required nutrient for brain function and communication with the body.

Chiropractors focus on getting proper motion back into joints, not only can this reduce your pain, but it can prevent further damage to that joint.

See a chiropractor to keep your joints moving and your nerves functioning properly!

Visit or contact 989-607-4322 to see us at our Midland chiropractor or Saginaw chiropractor office.

Inspiration: Opportunity

Many people talk about how they never "got the opportunity," to do something in life but in most cases it's not just something that comes to you. You need to go out and create your own opportunities.

Opportunity does not come to people sitting on the couch watching TV every night.

It comes to those who are out looking for it... the athlete who trains hard in the off season. The kid walking around the neighborhood with a shovel every time it snows. The employee that works an extra hour off the clock to finish a project. The person who takes the time to make their health a priority.

It could take two months or 20 years, but opportunity will come when you are out looking for it.

Kehres Health & Chiropractic now carries The Honest Company

Kehres Health & Chiropractic is excited to announce that we now carry The Honest Company products! I have always been hesitant to carry lotions, shampoos and other products like this because of their EWG (Environmental Working Group) ratings. Many products that claim to be healthy and non-toxic don't always have the best rating and aren't as healthy as they claim.

The Honest Company products have excellent ratings! Right now we carry baby wipes, lotion, diaper balm, shampoo and body wash, hand sanitizer and chapstick.

Also, The Honest Company was created by Jessica Alba!

These products are available at our Midland chiropractic office (601 E. Wackerly Road, #2, Midland, MI) and our Saginaw chiropractic office (4882 Gratiot Road, #13, Saginaw, MI).

We were very excited to have professional tennis player Vesna Dolonc in the office this past week! She was in town for the Midland Community Tennis Center tournament.

Vesna is very proactive with her health, she gets adjusted everywhere she travels to make sure she's preforming at the top of her game.

Good luck Vesna!

She visited both Kehres Health & Chiropractic Saginaw and our Midland chiropractic office.
