At Thornton Chiropractic, we’re committed to finding long-term solutions for all your pains, aches, and wellness problems.

Our chiropractor, Dr. Phillip Wygonski, works hard to keep Thornton families as happy and healthy as possible.

Dr. Phillip Wygonski

thornton-colorado-chiropractor-dr-phillip-wygonskiI got into this profession because there is no better doctor then the one inside each of us. I believe symptoms are an expression of your body trying to tell us that something is not right. Most people weren’t born with their symptoms but they developed over time. I look to find the source and correct it if possible or refer out though our network of healthcare professionals. I promise to not waste your valuable time if you are looking for answers.

On days when I am not in the office I am spending time with my wife. We enjoy being active in the outdoors. We enjoy skiing during the winter months and mountain biking in the summer months. We also just bought our first house that is a fixer upper. All those HGTV shows made restoring a house look easier than it is.

This is the time of year when any of you who suffer from allergies know the dread that's coming. You want to go outside and enjoy the good weather but you know with that comes a face that feels like it's going to explode, eyes are watering, constant sniffling, just misery and what options do you have? You could stay indoors and you still deal with house and dust mites and miss out on the good weather; you can reach for over-the-counter drugs that might give temporary relief but don't ...

Exercise is interesting in terms of effects on the brain because it works in about 4 or 5 different ways. One of the most obvious ways is blood flow. If you get your heart working, your brain is going to be filled with oxygen rich blood and nutrients, so that's the main way that it helps. The other way that's sort of interesting, is it's been thought that exercise produces new neurons. Exercise Induces Production of Growth Factors So exercise induces the production of growth factors. One is called BDNF, ...

One of the things that my patient report to me is that one of the most profound effect a chiropractor has on them, is their ability to reduce their stress level and also recover from stress. Our cranium and our spine house our brain and spinal cord. And all of the spinal nerves that are exiting the spine, innervate every single organ and cell in our body. By adjusting the spine, when we find misalignment, restrictions or what we call subluxations, we're able to profoundly restore normal nerve function. And ...

When it comes to chiropractic adjustments and children, we get asked what exactly does the adjustment do for them. Especially when we discuss why is it important for the overall health of the child. Well, we as chiropractors are concerned about the small misalignments that happen along the spinal column. It's those small misalignments that create the interference to the nerve system which in turn does not allow the brain to control the body like it was intended to be controlled. This is where we can really start to get ...

Does an apple a day really keep the doctor away? That's a public health message that's been around since 1866, but is it true? You don't know until you put it to the test. The "Association Between Apple Consumption and Physician Visits," published in the AMA's internal medicine journal. Objective: To examine the relationship between eating an apple a day and keeping the doctor away. Promoted by the lay media and powerful special interest groups, including the US Apple Association, so powerful that Big Apple recently spent a whopping $7,000 ...

People visit chiropractors everyday for different reasons and chiropractic offers many benefits beyond treating back pain, neck pain, or headaches. I'm going to share with you some of the lesser-known benefits of chiropractic care and why you should visit a chiropractor even if your back doesn't hurt. Reason #1: Improved Sleep I hear far too often that many people want to sleep better and to wake up feeling refreshed. They're not sleeping well due to pain, stress, and overall body aches. Your bed is NOT the problem. Before you spend ...

Does this sound familiar: "when I go to the grocery store, I know there are five hundred kinds of vegetables and fruit, but I buy the same three all the time." About one third of parents say their child is a picky eater and, in many cases, it's nothing to worry about.  The behavior is one of the few ways children can exert an influence on their parents and caregivers and that's through eating or not eating. It's a natural stage of developing some independence. But there are some things ...

Is sitting around really bad for you? With all the craziness going on outside in today’s world, you might be tempted to snuggle down into the safety of your sofa and simply avoid all the bad stuff out there. But is sitting around more dangerous than you think? It's a sad fact of life that everything we do - including the things we decide not to do - has consequences. And there's mounting evidence that prolonged periods of physical inactivity are not good for us. In 2011, researchers examined a ...

eating-healthy
It seems that people in general want to eat healthy, but they just don't have enough time.  Sometimes we associate eating healthy with being expensive and we would like to dispel that thought.  Sure you can probably get a Big Mac or a burrito for less than you would buying groceries or items to prepare a meal.  However, if you plan and shop properly, it can be both convenient and affordable for you in the long run.  So here are 1o tips that will make eating healthy easier for you! ...

constructing healthy plate
A healthy meal begins with assembling a healthy plate. And before you bring anything to that plate, it might be worthwhile to buy a set of smaller dinner plates cups and glasses. Interestingly, many hardware stores sell these very inexpensively, but they're harder to find in fancy kitchen stores. Mostly because small plates have gone out of style. One of the reasons we like to obsess about nutrients, and the industry likes us to obsess about nutrients, is a way of distracting us from the quantities of food. We are ...
