Patient Success Spotlight

“I had neck and shoulder pain related to work/stress. Every time I lifted my head up or looked down, my neck would go numb. It limited me from lifting quite a bit. I have been coming here for 6 years (for different problems) and I have had great results. I feel like I’m a part of the family when I go to my appointment. The staff makes you feel very comfortable and they don’t force you into anything. I highly recommend this place. Every time I need physical therapy, I always tell my doctor that I would like to come here.” -S. E. “I have had great results... I feel like I’m a part of the family.”

INGREDIENTS • 1 cup walnuts, or nuts of choice • 1 1/3 cup pitted dates* • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract • 3-4 tbsp cocoa or cacao powder • 1/8 tsp salt (optional) • mini chocolate chips (optional) • chia seeds or shredded coconut (optional)

DIRECTIONS Blend all ingredients in a food processor (or halve the recipe and use a single serve blender or mini chopper). When making a full recipe, a food processor is preferred over a blender as ingredients process more evenly and the results are less sticky. Once blended, transfer the dough to a sandwich bag and smoosh into one big ball. Break off pieces and roll into smaller separate balls. Dip in melted chocolate or roll in cocoa powder or shredded coconut or coconut flour. Alternatively, you can form bars or evenly roll out the dough and cut into shapes with cookie cutters! *Tip: If your pitted dates are super hard, just soak them in boiling water for a half hour.
