Catching a cold or flu from a co-worker or family member can really throw us for loop.

Have you ever awoken with a stiff neck and wondered why? Many of our patients in Austin complain of this and don’t have any idea why this happens.

As our weather changes from week to week, oftentimes we find our health changing for the worse.
