“So Doc, do you do all the things you tell us to do; what do you do to stay in shape?” questions I hear at least 2-3 times per month. Considering these common questions, I thought I (and the other docs at Ho Co Chiro) would dedicate a blog post to answering them.

Who is Russ Antico? Eleven years later, here I am–sitting here typing my third post to my very first blog. Who would have thought? When I am not in my office, I am usually with my wife, Veronica, and our sons, Jack and Benjamin…or I am running. I do that quite a bit. I love […]
