  1. Are You Really Ready to Exercise!!

    Are You Really Ready to Exercise!! These days, many of us are into taking better care ourselves. Exercise is one of the most popular ways people use to get into and stay in shape. Typically, when people think about starting an exercise program, they are urged to see their Dr for a check up to see if they are ok to start. The typical check up involves blood pressure and perhaps a stress test. If you pass these, you are usually given the ok to proceed. Unfortunately, this is not adequate to check if someone is truly ready to work out. Thousands of people every year are injured from exercise, and most of these injuries are preventable. For example, running injuries are the most common, affecting the knees, ankles, hips, and pelvis. A major factor in these injuries is due to leg and pelvic imbalance. Running on imbalanced legs or pelvis will cause abnormal torsion of the joints resulting in accelerated degeneration and inflammation. This is preventable if checked first by a qualified professional. Lifting weights is also a risk if you spine is not ready for the stress. Even yoga will be more effective and enjoyable if you spine and attached muscles are checked for proper balance and tone before starting. Doctors of Chiropractic are extremely qualified to check your body to make sure you are REALLY ready to exercise, without the risk of injury. That’s why most major Olympic and professional sports teams have chiropractors on staff to help the athletes reach their best performance.... naturally, without drugs. Even Usain Bolt was under chiropractic care! Now you can gain the same benefit as those high achieving athletes by getting yourself, or a friend, checked properly by a Licensed Doctor of Chiropractic. Call today!

  4. Thaivisa and Adblockers

    Thaivisa and Adblockers Running any business costs money and needs a revenue stream in order to operate, without this money the business will close. Thaivisa is no exception to this rule and costs money to operate. Our primary revenue stream is from banner revenue, without this we cannot afford to provide you with the service you want. It is no different from a cafe expecting you to pay for a cup of tea, in fact you would not even think about using a service or shop anywhere else without paying, in our case the banner advertisers pay for you - so it's an even better outcome for you! Anyone that uses an adblocker deprives a business of revenue that they need in order to operate. As such with immediate effect we will be implementing a count down for users with adblocker, meaning they will have to wait 10 seconds before reading the content they want to read. If you do use an adblocker, we would recommend you turn off your adblocker in order for normal service to be resumed. You may also select Thaivisa as an exception to your adblocker. Help us run a business you can count on, everyday 24 hours a day by allowing us to operate commercially, turn off your adblocker. Thank you for your understanding on this matter. Thaivisa management
