By: Ben Brown

From joint health to better sleep and nutrition, you can actually hack your way to optimal health. Find out how by checking out my podcast with Dr. Brent Myers.

 

Brent is a chiropractic sports physician and owner of Myers Chiropractic and Functional Health in Asheville, North Carolina. In his practice, Brent combines chiropractic care, manual therapy techniques like ART, FAKRT, and Graston, and patient-specific rehab to improve patient outcomes.

 

Not enough people are spending time stretching and stretching just a few muscles will almost help the entire body.

 

Additionally, Brent utilizes a wide range of functional medicine treatments to further enhance his patients overall level of health. These include supplements, lab testing, and other “life hacks.”

 

During our awesome podcast, Brent and I focus a lot on these “life hacks.” We talk about hacks for sleep, nutrition, kids nutrition, supplementation, joint health and more. Brent also shares a number of his favorite apps you can utilize to improve your health and help you be your best self. It’s definitely an interview you won’t want to miss.
