At Thornton Chiropractic, we’re committed to finding long-term solutions for all your pains, aches, and wellness problems. Instead of treating individual symptoms or even individual injuries, we take a look at your whole body and lifestyle, so that we can truly optimize your quality of life. 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.

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 ...

healthy thinking in thornton
There was an interesting study conducted at UCLA in the early 1990s where 14 professional actors were recruited to study the effects of emotion on the immune system. During the study, the actors were told which mood state they would be experiencing. Emotions Can Stimulate or Suppress Immune Function They then read the appropriate scenario, which was about 100 words long, and were told to create and experience a realistic mood by developing the scene and verbally and behaviorally acting it out while seated. Actors were encouraged to use their ...
