Sports-Related Injuries in Children: What Parents Need to Know
by Claudia Anrig, DC
August 22, 2009
Almost 75 percent of families with children between the ages of 5 and 18 have at least one child who plays organized sports, either at school or on a community team.
This may seem like a good thing; after all, there's the benefits of learning to work together as a team, building camaraderie and consistent physical activity. However, parents need to pay special attention to the potential injuries that can occur at any time and proactively involve you, their chiropractor, as a part of their child's health care team.
Specialty Food Purchases on the Rise
August 27, 2013
Nearly 75 percent of U.S. consumers report buying more specialty foods this year, an increase from 2009. Nearly one quarter of at-home food dollars are spent on specialty items like artisana chocolates, cheeses and oils.
For the second year, the top five categories that consumers are buying most include chocolate, olive oil and other specialty oils, cheese, yogurt and kefir, and coffee; salty snacks have jumped from ninth to sixth place among most purchased specialty foods. Mobile shopping is working for specialty consumers as well with 43 percent of specialty food consumers using their mobile phones to buy food, and nearly half buy foods with locally-grown ingredients. Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are emerging as a hot topic for specialty food consumers, who are four times more likely to seek out non-GMO foods than are non-specialty food consumers, according to the survey.

by Sandy Thorn Clark
April 17, 2011
A Westmont chiropractor says often golfers mistakenly think their pain originates in the back. Take a look at the hip joints and that may very well be the origin of the pain.
If hip motion inhibition is confirmed, Wehrend then administers massage, electrical stimulation, acupuncture and/or Kinesio Taping to help alleviate pain and promote healing. He also has the patient perform customized in-office and take-home exercises to build strength.

Slovakia doctors threaten to leave over low pay
November 28, 2011
Slovakia has declared a state of emergency in more than a dozen hospitals to ensure that health care is not compromised after thousands of doctors resigned from public hospitals over low pay.
Prime Minister Iveta Radicova, speaking after an emergency government meeting on the crisis, said the measures involve 15 hospitals across the country, including two clinics in the capital, Bratislava. Around 2,000 doctors in state-run hospitals have handed in their resignations, effective Dec. 1, if their demands for higher pay are not met. More than 7,000 doctors work in Slovak hospitals. The state of emergency means the doctors must stay at their jobs or face fines or even prison terms.
Skittle-Fed Beef? Wisconsin Farmers Caught Secretly Feeding Candy to Beef Cattle
by Whitney Webb
January 22, 2017
A bizarre spill of Skittles highway on a rural Wisconsin highway has placed the candy's manufacturer in the uncomfortable position of explaining why its products are finding their way into cattle feed.
The unexpected mishap ended up uncovering that farmers have been feeding candy to their cows for years as a way to cut corners and save money, at the cost to the quality of the beef as well as both cow and human health. Police, in talking to the cattle ranchers, soon learned that Skittles and other sweets are being commonly used in the area in order to "fatten up" cows as they serve as an inexpensive source of carbohydrates. A former farmer in the area told a local CNN affiliate that candy makers and bakeries often sell their rejected or defective candy products to be used as cattle feed, meaning that the problem is larger than just unscrupulous ranchers.

Signs of Vitamin D Deficiency Most People Miss
October 22, 2015
With flu season upon us and serious new viruses like Enterovirus D68 making the rounds, keeping blood levels of vitamin D at optimal levels can be truly lifesaving especially for children and the elderly.
Flu is actually vitamin D deficiency disease, not a happenstance occurrence in your life because you didn't get a flu shot or sat next to a coughing person on the train to work. Dr. John Cannell of the Vitamin D Council and one of the most preeminent Vitamin D researchers in the world today, has identified that vitamin D helps produce the antimicrobial peptides that protect against the flu. This is why people are more prone to the flu in winter when Vitamin D producing sunshine is minimal or nonexistent at some latitudes.
Shining a Light on the Opioid Epidemic
by Dr. Peter Phillips
April 2, 2018
The quick fix a pill provides, in addition to an aging population that experiences more aches and pains than it once did, led to a rise in opioid use. When generic opioids hit the market, and the price began to drop, the prescriptions began to rise.
"Chiropractic treatments are gentle and effective and do not use drugs or surgery," Phillips said. "Decompression therapy is non-invasive. Exercising, stretching, and diet modification are all things that can help alleviate pain." The latest tool is the MLS (Multi-Wave Locked System) Therapy Laser, a device that was FDA cleared for use nine years ago. The first laser therapy was a breakthrough, giving health care practitioners another way to improve the quality of life for their patients. "In the past, you would work with other therapies to try to do this," Phillips said. "We would work with ice therapy or massage therapy. What we're finding is that through laser therapy, we can have a set treatment protocol that's shorter, and we are able to get people better faster.
