We have just received the wonderful news that thanks to you – our awesome patients – we have been able to donate more than five months worth of meals to disabled, home-bound folks here in the city through Albuquerque Meals on Wheels! Have you been in to our office yet? This month only, new patients who mention this posting can receive their new patient exam (regularly $60) for FREE in return for a $20 donation to our Meals on Wheels fund. Already a patient, but want to help more? Leave a review of our doc on FaceBook, Yelp, or any other site and show it to Dr. Butterfield at your next appointment. For every review, we will donate another $1.00 to Meals on Wheels.
There isn’t even a hint of fall in the air yet, but school supplies are popping up everywhere. As you prepare your family for a new school year, be sure to carefully consider your children’s most important piece of gear – their backpacks. When fully loaded, a child’s pack should weigh no more than 10% of their body weight, and should reach just below the waistline. Our office is happy to offer FREE BACKPACK FITTINGS to the Albuquerque community. If you aren’t sure your child’s pack fits right, just give us a call! A backpack that sits too low, weighs too much, or is improperly fitted can cause real harm – in 2001 backpacks accounted for more than 7,000 emergency room visits. Long term, children and teens can experience back, neck, shoulder, and hip pain from overweight, oversize packs and even develop deformities of the spine. Keep your family safe and healthy this school year with support from Dr. Butterfield.
Did you know that the human feet contain a quarter of all the bones in your entire body? The twenty-six bones of your foot and ankle are connected through thirty-three joints by over one hundred tendons, ligaments, and muscles. As with all parts of the body, when any of these bones is not positioned properly, the joint will stop flexing the way it should. This often leads to muscle tightness and foot pain. Dr. Butterfield has developed a unique protocol for adjusting feet to restore motion and remove the causes of foot and ankle pain. Come see us throughout the month of April for a FREE foot adjustment to experience this healing for yourself! (One per patient, please.)
