We're making an effort to share interesting and useful news and research, along with our regular video posts, to keep our patient community informed on all matters of health. While not specifically chiropractic or rehab in nature, the following information has a fairly broad potential reach, so I wanted to share it with you. I'm sure many of you that we treat in our Beaverton clinic are on a daily aspirin prescription, or know someone who is, so take this as something to consider with your primary care physician when determining if a daily low dose aspirin regimen is right for you. The more knowledge we have, the better our health decisions will be:)
