Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic Care

This last winter, I needed some chiropractic adjustments. I didn’t have a lot of money to spend on it and needed regular visits.

Considering our difficult move in February, the stressful renovations and a long history of old dance related back injuries, I needed to get back in alignment. I also was hoping to start a more serious work out regime this Spring and knew I wouldn’t be able to handle the exercise if I was out of alignment.

The Joint Revisited

Visiting a chiropractor can get expensive if it’s not covered by insurance. That was why I initially went to a place called the Joint back in 2015. 
A 2015 Frugal Bugle winner, the Joint are Franchised Chiropractic Clinics that are individually owned with licensed chiropractors.

It may seem implausible, but the Joint has gotten even better! The pricing is more than fair with their introductory offer on your initial exam, consultation and adjustment at just $29.

We Love Spotify

In case you haven’t heard, Spotify is the latest online music streaming software to go against Apple and iTunes. It has been offered in Europe for a few years, where it competed with iTunes and created quite a buzz. It just recently crossed the pond.

What is causing the buzz? Spotify is offering access to 15 million songs for free and is legal (this is not a music pirate gateway).
