The holidays are happening. YAY!

Holiday Travel - Nashville TN - East End Chiropractic

Seeing family and friends is a priority. YAY!

Traveling is inevitable. MEH…

Traveling ergonomics need to be assessed to avoid placing the body in an injury-prone position. It is important to recognize the body’s need for balance and healthy motion.

Here are a few recommendations no matter where you are headed.


  • While at the airport….. Keep moving. Sit at an area that offers a table and chair while you wait for your plane. Do the stretches or exercises you were recommended.
  • While on the plane…..Use a lumbar support. Use a neck pillow. Wear comfortable clothing.

TRAINS: When you are from Chicago, this is still a highly utilized form of transportation!

  • Lumbar support and neck pillows are still recommended.
  • Luxury of trains… you can stand up and move around every few minutes (set a timer if you need to!)


  • Take frequent rest stops. Even with it being cold outside it is worth the stop! Tennessee has some amazing rest stops with beautiful views where you can stand up, stretch out, and get some fresh air!
  • Move the settings position on your seat every 20 minutes. This will displace forces differently on your body while you sit.
  • Driving? Keep rearview mirror up a little higher to encourage sitting up a bit straighter.
  • As said before, a lumbar roll support and a neck pillow are easy to pack.


  • Whether you have company staying with you or if you are traveling, do your best to factor in time for an exercise routine. Do not put off the recommended exercises and stretches! Realize the holidays are for celebrating and what more to celebrate than your health and the effort you put in to care for your body!


  • Get overwhelmed at the holidays? Headache prone?

UNPLUG for a while from electronics!

Take a deck of cards with you to the airport. Read a book. Listen to nothing. Go for a walk to look at holiday lights.

We hope you enjoy the holiday season and have an opportunity to celebrate with friends and family. Be safe and treat yourself to some comfortable travels!

Turkey Ready TMJ

The temporomandibular joint is easily one of the joints used most often in the human body from day to day. The temporomandibular joint, TMJ, is the joint that involves the meeting of the jaw, or mandible, with the skull. The joint is recruited every time the jaw is opened, closed, protruded, retracted, or moved side to side. Ie. Saying “ah” at the dentist, clenching your teeth during a traffic jam, singing your heart out at karaoke night, eating holiday festive food.

TMJ Dysfunction - Nashville TN - East End Chiropractic

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and the TMJ will be recruited in order to devour mounds of delicious food. Some people would not think twice about what will be on their plate, however some people must make hard decisions knowing that feasting on some food demands too much of the TMJ resulting in dysfunctional pain.

The TMJ articulations involve a disc, synovial fluid, nerve dense tissues, and muscles. When the TMJ is not functioning correctly, pain is often reported due to the high amount of nerve innervation to the area. A high amount of nerve innervation is necessary because it is important to be aware of sensation at the TMJ because it is used so often.


Discomfort associated with the TMJ can present in many ways. Some symptoms included headaches, neck tension, ear pain, and limited or increased jaw motion.

To decrease discomfort and more importantly determine the reasons of dysfunction, it has become more widely accepted to explore conservative options such as mouth guards, manual muscle work and physiotherapeutic interventions that can be offered through a number of specialists.

Treating a TMJ is not out of the spectrum for chiropractic care. It is actually a highlighted region that some chiropractors have a strong education of. Evaluating the physical motion of the joint, recording a history and pattern of discomfort, and assessing the influential musculature and posture can lead to a solid treatment plan recommendation.

We hope that you can enjoy your holiday treats without TMJ pain. If you are concerned about any issues or wondering if you may be dealing with a TMJ dysfunction, be sure to ask us!

Our Hours are Changing!

There are many things happening at East End Chiropractic! With the addition of Dr. Calabra to the office and the new addition to Dr. Olsen’s family, we have decided to make some changes to our open hours.

New Clinic Hours - Nashville TN - East End Chiropractic

We know how much our patients value the days that we are open late until 6pm. This gives you an opportunity to receive care after work hours.  We will continue to keep our office open 3 days a week until 6pm.  Below are the new changes to our hours.

Monday: 8am-1pm and 3pm-6pm

Tuesday: 10am-1pm

Wednesday: 8am-1pm and 3pm-6pm

Thursday: 8am-1pm and 3pm-6pm

Friday: 8am-1pm

These new hours will still allow for chiropractic care before the weekend and hopefully allow you to get out of town earlier on Fridays when you need! As always, your feedback is important and we would love to hear what you think about the new change.  Please feel free to drop us and email at or come by the office if you have any questions or concerns.
