5 Tips For Choosing the Right Chiropractor

We’ve all been there before: trying to choose between a list of potential businesses or professionals with very little of substance to go on. Most of the time we rely on online reviews, glances at web pages, and if we are lucky we may know someone who has been to that business already and can tell you what to expect.

Going to a chiropractor is an important decision, even more so because many people do not know much about chiropractic to start with. What little they do know may very well be wrong. Some consider chiropractors quite poorly and are skeptical of the profession. Some are open to seeing a chiropractor but have no friends or family to steer them to the right person, and have no experience with chiropractic that would make an Internet search easier. It helps when you know the “language” of something because your Google search will be much more fruitful when you use the right terminology. Using broad terms often will net you nothing more than a list of chiropractors who do a lot of advertising and who fill their websites with keywords just to attract visitors via Google.

Choosing a chiropractor is in many ways a very personal decision. With so many types of DC’s out there that means that you can probably find one tailored to your needs. This article will outline how to conduct a good search that will show you all the local chiropractors and allow you to tell them apart so that you can make the best choice.

1. Are you going to a chiropractor simply for pain relief, or for general health?

You can loosely separate chiropractors into two groups: holistic chiropractors and mechanistic chiropractors. All chiropractors know of this distinction, and in fact the profession has been in a general state of low-level internal conflict along this fault line since it’s inception. Some chiropractors know this as a war of “straights vs. mixers”. The internal conflict, which actually has many positive benefits, has been ongoing since the start of the profession in 1895. This duality is a strength of the profession: without the holistic character of chiropractic we would be physical therapists who adjust the spine, and without the mechanistic character of chiropractic we would lose sight of the very real benefits to health that chiropractic care provides millions of Americans every year, and the real detrimental effects of spinal joint malfunction (subluxation).

2. Do you want long-term care or would you prefer to have your complaint treated and then have your case closed?

Many chiropractors, with varying degrees of scientific evidence to back this up, promote chiropractic as a viable alternative to traditional healthcare. They view chiropractic as a way to foster the health of your nervous system through chiropractic spinal adjustments, which then allows the body to function at a higher level. Chiropractors and patients all over the country will attest to improved health with less illness and injury after they incorporated chiropractic into their lives. Regular adjustments help adults and children cope with everything from allergies to headaches, and people who want to avoid prescription medication often choose chiropractic instead. Hard scientific proof to validate this is difficult to come by due to inherent problems in designing a study capable of testing the “chiropractic lifestyle” and it’s effect on general health, but case series’ exist and we’ve likely all met someone who will swear up and down that chiropractic is keeping them out of the doctor’s office.

On the flip side of this coin are chiropractors that will work to promote proper joint function at the injured area and then rehabilitate the joint and supporting soft tissue, after which they will release you from care. There is a value in this, just as there is a value in wellness or maintenance care. Releasing a patient after their pain is gone will save the patient money. It will also please the patient’s health insurer – not that your insurer’s happiness should ever be a factor in making health decisions, but unfortunately they hold power over your health in some very important ways so there is a value in not ending up in anyone’s crosshair at your insurer’s corporate headquarters. Rather than promote continuing care, a mechanistic chiropractor will work to correct the immediate problem only. Many times back pain may stem from a weak ankle or knee, so your chiropractor may very well focus on a spot that isn’t painful, so do not assume the location of your pain is the cause of your pain.

A fundamental difference between holistic and mechanistic chiropractors is that the holistic chiropractor will treat the patient beyond the scientific limitations a more mechanistic chiropractor would self-impose. This actually ties #1 and #2 together. For example, a mechanistic chiropractor may treat low back pain by working to rehabilitate a sacroiliac joint and then release the client when the sacroiliac joint returns to normal, pain-free function. A holistic chiropractor will treat the client until subluxations (spinal misalignments causing nerve irritation) are fully resolved and then broaden their attention to include general subluxation correction in the entire spine in order to promote general wellness. Both approaches have real value. While imposing limits on treatment based on the limits of what peer-reviewed research can substantiate is important, holistic chiropractors acknowledge that progress in science occurs by pushing the limits of understanding and treating patients in ways that current best evidence may not fully support. The periphery of science is where progress is usually made – though it is also where quackery finds refuge.

3. Are you injured or are you dysfunctional? In other words, did your pain come on suddenly from an injury or did it set in more slowly due to something you repeatedly do?

Sudden pain usually means an injury occurred. Sometimes it is a car accident, or a fall, or a sports injury. These type of injuries may be what a certain type of chiropractor focuses on or even has certification and increased training in. In cases of these types of injuries you want a chiropractor who can confidently treat sprains and strains, who can differentiate different types of injuries, and who will recognize when an injury is too severe for them and is also diligent enough to see certain warning signs and refer you to other providers when necessary. Many holistic chiropractors, though not all, are prone to viewing the spine in terms of subluxations only and may therefore miss the subtle signs of a more severe injury that requires the expertise of a specially-trained chiropractor, an orthopedist or neurologist. Though not a firm rule, a more mechanistic chiropractor may be a safer bet when a painful injury is involved.

4. What professional associations serve the chiropractic profession, and how can this help you find the right DC?

There are two large national organizations that represent chiropractors: the ACA and the ICA. The ACA is the American Chiropractic Association and the ICA is the International Chiropractic Association. The ACA is more mechanistic and the ICA is more holistic. State associations are more varied, so it is difficult to discern much about a chiropractor from looking at his or her state association membership unless you look into the political or philosophical leanings of that organization – a lot of work for finding a chiropractor. To make things simple, know that many ICA chiropractors actually oppose the ACA, and vice versa, so you can glean more from their membership (or non-membership) in national organizations than you can from other things you might find on the website or online listings for a chiropractor. It’s important to not read too much into this bit of information, though, and of course to consider that all people are multi-dimensional and may not fit into the dichotomy I am describing. Still, as part of a larger set of information to make a judgement, this can be helpful to consider.

5. Should you consider their websites, reviews, and testimonials? And how important are personal referrals?

You may find out soon enough that many chiropractors use one of a handful of companies to make their websites. This means that if you go to ten different chiropractor’s websites you may see the same website over and over again with just a different DC’s name on it.

This means the content is unoriginal and you likely cannot learn much about the chiropractor from their website. This reduces the value of the website. Chiropractors would be better off by ditching the spinning 3D spines and instead putting actual content on their sites. These sites are loaded with content but very little, if any, of the information on the site is unique to that chiropractor. Even articles with bylines that include that chiropractor’s name are probably not articles written by that actual chiropractor. Suspect intellectual laziness and dishonesty when any professional puts his name and credentials on an article he or she did not author. While it is a common practice, that does not mean it is the right way to promote yourself.

Online reviews, such as Yelp! and Yahoo!, are great. Often, though, businesses game the system by making fake reviews. Are all the reviews from the same approximate time? For example, are ten reviews all from March 2012? If so, that is suspicious. If the reviews seem legitimate they may give you some insight into the kind of DC, but if they are suspicious then you should remember the old adage “buyer beware”. Quite often a bad review (that is legitimate) will be followed with numerous illegitimate good reviews in order to drown out the bad one. Getting past the illegitimate reviews you may actually be able to get a lot of good information from reading reviews, so don’t hesitate to use a search engine to search for “jones family chiropractic reviews” and see what comes up.

Testimonials should be looked at as marketing, but of course they probably are real stories from real patients. The chiropractor is choosing what message you want to hear. If they choose 5 patients who talk about the chiropractor curing their back pain, then this chiropractor wants you to view them as a specialist in back pain. If they talk about kids and allergies, that is what they want you to know they specialize in. In this way, testimonials can be used to get a look at the chiropractor.

Personal referrals are the best source of information since it is typically unfiltered and direct. Ask a friend or family member and you will get an unbiased opinion. The best chiropractors (and the best attorneys, realtors, and even bakers) all get most of their new clients because they treated the clients they already have so well. People are quick to complain about poor service, so when someone has a good thing to say about how they were treated then you should recognize this as worthy of your attention. Think of it like this: that person experimented with a chiropractor so you don’t have to. A personal referral from someone you trust is easily the most valuable information you will come across.

That’s it! I hope these five tips help you narrow down your search for the perfect chiropractor. This is by no means an exhaustive list of all considerations, but it is a great way to structure your search and find the DC who fits your needs and will provide what you are looking for. Take care and be well.

Importance of Family Portraits/Family Photography

As a little girl I loved to look at old photos of my family. I would spend hours imagining what it was like to live back in those days. It gave me a sense of pride and belonging; connection to the past and part of my family that is no longer tangible. This is especially true for me as my family migrated to the US from Cuba back in 1980 with barely any possessions, but what could fit in their pockets. We luckily had a lot of relatives that were willing to mail us some old photos of their childhood. I am so grateful that my grandparents gave me a gift of history by taking a family portrait. I look at that portrait of my mom with her family from way back when, and it brings me back in time. This is the only way our great grandchildren will know what it was like to live in the year 2012 and how their grandmother looked at age 30.

Family portraits are so important, they are the most tangible piece of your legacy.

We need to make sure we archive our history. It’s our responsibility that future generations are able to have these memories. It’s not difficult to capture these moments if you take the time to hire the right photographer who understands the value of the family legacy.

Professional family photographers understand that some moments never repeat themselves for various reasons. Whether your son is blowing a kiss at you or your daughter is hugging her father, the family photographer is quick to capture these moments that are so cherished in the family history.

Give the gift of history to future generations by having a family portrait session.

Preparing for your family portrait.

1. Seek and hire and professional photographer: Hiring a professional Orange County family photographer is the first step. Speak with them over the phone for a consultation. Diligently look over their website portfolio. What are their family portrait packages? Are prints and digital negatives included? Do they use lighting? Where are the portraits going to be taken. How flexible is the photographer with traveling to areas? How creative can the shots be? Many family photographers will travel to the right location that suits your family’s needs.

2. Schedule your Shoot: Make sure to consider your schedule and try not to plan your session around busy times of the day or week so you don’t feel rushed. Be cognizant of rush hour traffic especially here in the tri-state area. If you’re only 30 minutes from your shoot and it’s scheduled at 6:30pm, make sure to leave at least 45 minutes ahead of time.

3. Clothing and the Weather: Make sure to check the weather the day of your shoot. Plan an outfit that will make the weather tolerable to you and the little ones. I always suggest to families that they don’t have to all match color-wise, but it is a good idea to look somewhat uniform so that the eye is drawn to the faces and not the clothing when the image is created. Good clothing suggestions include: wearing black, blues, and any primary colors when choosing your outfits. If your session is outdoors, we suggest staying away from green so that you do not blend in with nature. Try to pick your clothes out the night before so that everyone has an idea of what they are wearing. Ladies make certain you have enough time to get ready before your session so that you feel confident! If possible try to bring a hair brush, blotting tissue for makeup, lipstick, ChapStick for the boys, and hand lotion.

4. Pick a location: If you already don’t have an idea of where you’d like to have your family portrait session, your photographer should know of good places to visit in your area. Many times indoor locations require a permit for photography so it is recommended that you and the photographer speak about possible locations ahead of time in case a permit is necessary. It is recommended having your family sessions in the evening before sunset or in the early morning during sun rise. The lighting is so wonderful during this time for portraits as the sun is low on the horizon and no one is squinting at the camera. Noon time is one of the worst times to have these types of sessions, so it is something to keep in mind when scheduling with your photographer.

5. Make your session day a fun day for the family: Get the little ones excited for their photo shoot! Tell them they are going to have a fun time playing with their new photographer friend. Take the family out to lunch or dinner before the shoot. Make the whole day a fun day so everyone is in great spirits. Try bringing your child’s favorite toys or items during your family session. This helps children feel more comfortable when they are surrounded by familiar items.

Types of Bird Feeders – Hopper, Suet and Squirrel Proof Bird Feeders

If you are new to the bird feeding community you will benefit from this information. Feeding wild birds is a growing hobby in the United States and for good reason. What better way to witness wild life than right in your backyard with the help of bird feeders. There are many different types of bird feeders, however, you will learn about three here: hopper feeders, suet feeders, and cage or squirrel proof feeders.

Hopper Feeders

Hopper feeders, also called house feeders, have a platform upon which walls and a roof are built, forming a hopper. A gazebo feeder is considered a hopper feeder. Hopper bird feeders are popular because they are practical and functional as well as can be decorative. These feeders are efficient to clean and maintain. With hopper feeders it is important to do regularly cleaning. The hopper is built to protect seed against the elements, however, few hopper feeders do a good job of protecting seed from rain, and the seed can become moldy. Birds can eat from at least two sides if not all sides of a hopper feeder, which is why it is so accessible to a large variety of birds. These bird feeders are versatile in a way that they can be set up as hanging feeders or be pole mounted. A good choice of bird food for a hopper feeder is mixed wild bird seed or black oil sunflower seed. A disadvantage to this feeder is that some wild birds will pick through the seed looking for only their favorite and leave the bird feeder a mess and wasted bird seed below. Wild birds that are mostly attracted to hopper feeders are: chickadees, nuthatches, red bellied woodpeckers, mourning doves, cardinals, finches, jays, sparrows and yes the ‘most of the time’ unwanted starlings and blackbirds.

Suet Feeders

Suet feeders are special feeders that hold a nutrient rich bird food called suet. Suet is packed with energy-rich nutrition because of its high fat content. Suet can be store bought or homemade. This special bird food keeps birds warm during cold temperatures which makes it the perfect bird food for winter weather. If used in the winter, place the bird feeder in the shade. Most suet feeders have a wire or plastic cage surrounding the suet to keep it in place and come in many shapes and sizes. Suet bird feeders will attract birds that will not come to other types of feeders. You may start to have problems with starlings or blackbirds at your suet feeder eating all the suet in a very short period of time. If this does happen try using pure suet with nothing mixed into it or use suet only mixed with nyjer and/or safflower seed. An upside-down suet bird feeder where only clinging birds are able to attach to it may work as well. As always make sure to keep this type of feeder clean. Suet bird feeders can attract a variety of woodpeckers, the northern flicker, chickadees, red-breasted and white-breasted nuthatch, purple finch and blue jays, to name a few.

Cage/Squirrel Proof Feeders

Cage and squirrel proof feeders may be right up your alley if you have squirrels in your yard. Believe it or not squirrels can become a problem if you do not have a bird feeder that is designed to keep squirrels out! Squirrels can pose a couple problems including eating all the bird seed and damaging your bird feeders. Most squirrel proof bird feeders are heavy duty yet provide little access for squirrels to get to the seed. Squirrel proof feeders keep squirrels out by making any perch area weight sensitive in the effect that when the squirrel attempts to jump on it they will drop to the ground. Cage feeders allow only birds to have access to the bird food leaving the squirrels at bay.

With all the different types of bird feeders out there to choose from, take this information with you when making a decision. Hopper feeders, suet feeders and cage/squirrel proof bird feeders provide a great selection to choose from. Start enjoying the wild life in your backyard using wild bird feeders.

A Guide to Hiring an SEO Provider

If your business has any online components (such as a website), then SEO is crucial to the ongoing success of your business. You may have the most expensive website in your industry, but without web traffic (visitors) to that website, it is essentially useless. It is not just traffic that you need, but targeted traffic. A good quality SEO service can provide relevant, consistent web traffic to your website(s). This guide will allow you, as a non-expert, to distinguish between good and bad SEO providers. There are many of both kinds, this guide should help you to find the good ones.

SEO needs to be implemented in a way that is effective in achieving your SEO goals and providing that all important meaningful presence on the World Wide Web.

Quality SEO is a crucial investment when it comes to developing successful expansion and growth strategies.

Ineffective SEO implementation, renders your SEO efforts wholly ineffective and a waste of your money.

6 things you need to know and understand before hiring an SEO provider:

1) Hiring an SEO provider should be seen as an investment in your business. You should not view it as a business expense, but rather a business strategy and an effective way of enhancing your business presence within your business sector. Try not to begin your search with the intention of “buying some SEO”. Hiring an SEO provider should be viewed rather as hiring an employee that understands and cares about your business and its online objectives.

2) The first page of Google (or any search engine) is everything. Few people ever go to the second page of the search results anymore. Google is so good at being a search engine that people blindly trust Google’s ability to deliver the most relevant results on the first page. Think about how often you click through to the second page. This means that if your business is not on the first page, it’s almost as good as nowhere. The top positions on page one get the most clicks, which decrease as you progress downwards on the page.

3) The ‘big’ keywords are not everything. It is better to be on the first page for a few smaller keywords, than try to rank for bigger keywords and not be on the first page at all. For example, an accountancy business in Preston may not rank for the highly competitive keyword ‘accountant’ (unless they have a lot of SEO budget and time to wait for rankings); but the same business could conceivably rank highly for the keyword ‘chartered accountant Preston’. A good SEO provider should research the keywords that your business could realistically rank on page one for and also keywords that have enough search volume to be worthwhile for your business to try ranking for.

4) SEO is all about beating your competition. There is no guarantee from the search engines to say you will be on the first page of Google if you do certain things. Put simply, SEO works like this:

The search engines have their conventions; websites that conform by giving the search engines what they want, will find themselves achieving better search engine rankings. The only thing standing between you and the top spots in the search rankings is your competition. Not your actual business competitors, but your online competitors. The websites that currently have the top spots in the search engines for your desired keywords are your online competition, and you need to beat them out of those top spots. Some keywords will be easy to rank for, others will be more difficult. It is only your online competition that dictates which will be the case for each individual keyword. A good SEO provider will research the competition for each of your keywords. Then, after the most effective keywords for your business sector have been identified they should be implemented in accordance with point number three above.

5) On-page and Off-page SEO.

Search engine optimisation is a complex and ever-evolving science, but in order to intelligently interview a prospective SEO provider you need to understand that there are two main types of SEO.

On-page SEO relates to the factors on your website that affect your SEO (keywords, usability, page headings, outbound links, internal links, etc.).

Off-page SEO are the factors that relate directly to matters outside of your website that affect the SEO of the website, such as back links, citations, social sharing, etc.

SEO providers can work on your off-page SEO fairly easily, but if you are not willing to change on-page SEO, according to their recommendations, you cannot blame them for lack of results. A good SEO provider will review your website and report back about your on-page SEO, and how it can be improved. You should have your web designer make the adjustments.(Remember he is the expert in this field)

6) An increase in search engine ranking is not necessarily an increase in leads and sales. All your SEO provider can do is get your website, videos, Google Places, articles, blog posts, etc. further up the search engine results. They cannot guarantee an increase in sales or leads, because that factor is determined by your own sales funnel. It is not the SEO provider’s job to make sure that the extra web traffic you receive will convert to more leads or sales. Your website needs to convert those visitors with good marketing, which is an issue for your marketing consultant to deal with.

The key differences between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ SEO providers:

Good SEO Providers
Good SEO providers know and understand the points mentioned above. You can judge this by their answers to the questions provided later in my next article.
Good SEO providers want to build a solid foundation and a proper SEO plan for your business, with extensive initial keyword and market (competitor) research. They will often insist upon it, even if the prospective client does not see the need. Sometimes a good SEO provider will refuse to work with a client that does not want the important groundwork to be done, because they know that without it they will not be likely to provide the client with the results that they want. A good SEO provider will want to provide their client with results as their first priority. Often a client will say “but I’ve already done the keyword research myself”. Many potential clients sit down for 5 or 10 minutes to write out all the keywords that they think are relevant to their business, and then think that they have now done all the keyword research that is needed. Real keyword research is a lengthy, investigative process.

Good SEO providers use responsible SEO methods, such as paying more attention to on-page SEO, securing quality back links, improving citations, aiding social sharing, ensuring a good user experience, etc.

Bad SEO Providers
Bad SEO providers will want to take their clients’ money as their first priority. They will not conduct proper keyword and market research, but will say, for example, “what are your three keywords and your URL that you want to rank for”. If this happens (as it often does) you can be sure they are simply plugging your website into software to get irrelevant back links all over the internet, using spam blog comments, link farms and other means. In many cases this approach is ineffective because the URL, or domain, may not match the client’s desired keywords. This can also damage the reputation and, ironically, the long-term SEO and credibility of the website.
Bad SEO providers use bad quality SEO methods (Sometimes referred to as Black-hat methods), Utilising these methods can have an extremely detrimental effect on how your website is perceived by search engines. This in turn may result in your website being (Sand boxed). Needless to say this is extremely undesirable, as damage such as this is extremely difficult to reverse.

Ensure you get the specialist in Hamilton SEO who knows how best to highlight the attributes of your company and can draw attention to your products and your services in a way that really makes your business stand-out on the worldwide web.

SEO and webdesign It is extremely important to have a website that reflects your company ethics and personifies the company ethos as closely as possible, after all; this is about you, your company and the products and services that you wish to put on display. Good quality SEO ensuring a good user experience.

Know the Relationship Between CoQ10 and Heart Palpitations

There is only one reason for heart palpitations. That is nutrition deficiency. It may look very simplified to you given the great complex science behind the human body. But you will appreciate this fact after reading this article wherein I will also include the nexus between CoQ10 and heart palpitations.

The heart is the fulcrum of human system. It is where the blood is pumped in and pumped out to ensure that the blood takes oxygen and nutrition to the nook and corner of our body. Two aspects are important here. One is the quality blood and the other is the quality blood vessel. To be precise, the heart, the blood and the blood vessels are important to lead a healthy life.

A healthy person never complains about heart palpitation. There is no substitution to nutrition for the health of a person.

Quality blood has all the nutrition to provide energy to 100 trillion cells we have in our body. The blood vessels consisting of tissues and muscles are again made out of cells which need nutrition to be healthy. When quality blood offers ideal viscosity of blood and quality blood vessels offer unhindered flow of blood without any blockage, it not only offers strong heart but that strong heart ensures that each and every 100 trillion cells get their required energy. Now tell me, if one can maintain such a health, where is the question of palpitation?

Nutrition deficiency leads to various diseases like premature arterial contraction, premature ventricular contraction, heart block, hypoxia, hypoglycemia, anemia, heart failure, thyrotoxicosis etc. All these pave way for heart palpitation.

Now let us come to specific of CoQ10 and heart palpitations.

While nutrition deficiency definitely poses the danger of heart palpitation, CoQ10 needs special mention. The food we eat is first converted as a substance called adenosine tri-phosphate which is an energy-storage. We all know that our heart is the most dynamic organ in our body. It beats for 100,000 times a day and 35 million times in a year. Obviously it needs lot of energy. Nature has provided more CoQ10 in and around the heart than any other place. This way, required energy is provided to the healthy functioning of the heart.

Now let us turn to blood vessels. As I said, CoQ10 is essential for all the cells. That includes the tissues and muscles of the blood vessels. The quality blood having CoQ10 ensures all the cells in the blood vessels are provided with this energy facilitating nutrition. With this, the blood vessels are taken care of.

Once sufficient level of CoQ10 is ensured in the quality blood, it takes care of health of the heart and the blood vessels. The entire blood circulation system is kept in tact offering healthy body.

Healthy body leads to healthy mind. Amongst the reasons for heart palpitations, fear, insecurity, tension etc., also cause palpitations. When we ensure healthy mind, chances of such psychological sufferings are minimized.

With this, I am sure we can understand the nexus between the CoQ10 and heart palpitations.

However, I would like to conclude by saying that taking CoQ10 alone will not give you desired results. Of course, to some extent it will provide relief if one takes CoQ10 rich food like fish, meat, poultry products, spinach, broccoli etc. The lasting solution is available in taking complete planned natural nutrition intake. This may not be possible all the time from the food we take, because we are not living in an ideal world. The best solution is to go in for total balanced nutrition supplement that contains all natural herbs and salts. That should include CoQ10 as one of the ingredients in an appropriate dosage.

I know for sure a fantastic product manufactured in New Zealand. They use more than 70 natural herbs and salts including CoQ10 . They are manufactured out of GMP compliant facility with the involvement of reputed scientists. You should visit my website to know more about nutrition, health and wellness.

Easy Garage Door Repair Tips to Help You Save Money

Doing a garage door repair is one of the most difficult things to face especially if you are not familiar with technical DIY home repairs. Because garage doors are a combination of complicated electronics, hard-to-understand mechanical workings and hard-to-handle materials, most people shy away from doing these repairs and just leave it to a door technician to fix the job. The problem is, repairing of the doors in your garage might cost you a lot of money. A simple garage door installation already costs close to a thousand dollars, Hiring technicians to repair your door’s simple problems will only add up to your expenses.

Major repairs such as panel and door spring replacements will usually call for the help of expert technicians. But as much as possible, you must first try and see if you can fix the problems on your own before you go out and look for help. In the case that you have a screeching garage metal door that causes a lot of noise when opened or closed, the first things that you have to check are rusty hardware and old door screws. People do not realize it but half of the time, it is the combination of rusty hardware and old screws that serves as the culprit when it comes to the problem of screeching garage doors. If you are able to check these little issues first before calling out the technician to do the minor repair, you might be able to save a lot of money.

If you have a door in your garage that does not fully go down when it is closed and it springs right back up before even reaching the ground, the main culprit is usually a misplaced door sensor. A door sensor that is not placed properly will most certainly cause your garage door to do unwarranted acts such as not closing down 100%. To fix this, just place your door sensors a little lower than your current placement. You might also want to check if there are objects and hindrances blocking the sensor because it can also contribute to the said problem.

Doing a door repair for your garage is not an easy task especially if you are not an “electronics” or “mechanics” kind of person. But you must also put in mind that doing simple DIY door repairs will not hurt especially if the problems are too trivial to even call a door technician. Sometimes, a non-working door might even be fixed by simply replacing the batteries of your door opener. If you want to be frugal and save more money in the bank, learning simple DIY repairs of your garage is a must.
