We all know that sitting hunched over at a desk all day isn't good for the back -- but there are actually a variety of unhealthy postures we may be holding all day without even knowing it.

Turns out, the wrong stance can put stres and tension on the wrong areas of the body, Dr. Perry Wolk-Weiss, a chiropractor, told Daily Connection in this video. And that can cause long-term health problems.

You might not think to call a balneotherapist when your face breaks out or a reflexologist when asthma flares. But alternative medical practices, no matter how weird they might seem, are gaining traction.

Technically, "alternative" treatments are used in place of conventional medicine; when used alongside standard medical practices, alternative approaches are referred to as "complementary" medicine. The benefits (or lack of benefits) of alternative therapies are far from clear, since there have been few large-scale randomized clinical trials of them. Still, in 2008, more than 38 percent of American adults said they had used some form of alternative medicine. Here is a guide to some of those treatments:

New chiropractors are well advised to study those with more experience. But you can learn a lot from those who are just starting out of the gate, too.

But of course the Internet is useful in a variety of ways - not the least of which is marketing. "When I was in practice 40 years ago, you had to be listed in the Yellow Pages," Singer says. These days, the advice is different for the 1,000 practices he consults with each year. "Patients don't find you in the Yellow Pages. They find you on the Internet." But this isn't news, right? "You would be surprised at how many established chiropractors have no website or don't know what social media is," notes Nona Djavid, DC. In 2008, she started two businesses: her own practice and MyChiroPractice Inc., a marketing and branding company exclusively for chiropractors.

To a large degree traditional medicine focuses on the symptoms of fibromyalgia that occur after the knockout blow. The knockout blow is the original traumatic event.

Bergman's wonderful video seems like a much more reasonable approach. Okay, if the person with fibromyalgia has all these symptoms, how do you take care of the CAUSES of the symptoms, rather than just reducing the pain from the symptoms. This makes so much more sense to me. So, by chiropractice adjustments, and adjustments to diet and gut health, Bergman achieves powerful results.

Patients respond positively to chiropractic adjustments to alleviate migraines and severe headaches. For patients that do not respond to medication and other common treatments, chiropractic care helps to address headaches and migraines at their source.

As reported from the Migraine Research Foundation, approximately 36 million Americans suffer from migraines with women of the ages of 25 to 55, the most likely candidates of the condition. Migraines, in general, start at one side of the head but can spread to both with the most significant pain around the sides of the forehead. Some individuals experience auras, or visual disturbances, along with or preceding the full onset of the migraine.

Walk into a chiropractor's office and you will see necks, backs and ankles being cracked - and, increasingly, some of them will belong to children.

With the demand for complementary and alternative treatment increasing, more people are considering the use of chiropractic care for children and newborns. In fact, it is the most common type of complementary and alternative care for children, according to a study done by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association in 2010. The study showed an estimated 86 million pediatric visits were made to chiropractors throughout the United States, Canada and Europe in 2007, the most recent data available.

People outside the alternative health community are often confused by the lack of autism in the Amish people. The Amish do not experience autism, or most of the other learning disabilities that plague our technological society.

They live in a society that consists of outdated technologies and ideals, at least by contemporary standards. Their diet consists of eating organic, fresh, locally-grown produce, and of course, they do not follow the established vaccination routines. To the dismay of the mainstream media and the medical establishment, this has resulted in a healthier people, who are void of all of our chronic diseases. Heart disease, cancer, and diabetes are virtually non-existent in Amish villages. Equally non-existent are our modern, chemically-engineered medicines, enhanced (chemically engineered) foods, G.M.O. (genetically engineered) foods, and of course, vaccines. How is it that those who are without the so-called "miracles" of modern orthodox medicine are healthier? The truth about health, medicine, and how they both relate to the Amish has become an embarrassment to some rather powerful people.

Brandon Babcock, a Utah chiropractor accused of exploiting elderly diabetes patients, is taking his show on the road. The 37-year-old has been traveling to Idaho, Florida and Arizona and holding free seminars in hotels.

The citation is a misdemeanor offense. It's unclear what bearing it will have on his criminal case in Utah, which is set for a pretrial conference next Monday. Babcock had his chiropractic license suspended and is out on $200,000 bail awaiting trial on charges he swindled thousands of dollars from elderly Utahns with a scheme to cure their diabetes.

"Have you done your taxes yet?" Your co-worker is just making casual conversation over coffee and bagels, but the words send a wave of stress and maybe even panic through you.

Most people skip over medical expense deductions because the amount spent on medical expenses has to surpass a sizable minimum. It didn't look like I would make the minimum, but then Turbo Tax asked, "Did you visit a chiropractor or acupuncturist this year?" Did I?! You bet I did...

Using lasers to regenerate and grow body parts sounds like science fiction, but researchers have just demonstrated that it might be a tranformative tool in medicine-or at least dentistry-in the future.

A Harvard-led team just successfully used low-powered lasers to activate stem cells and stimulate the growth of teeth in rats and human dental tissue in a lab. The results were published today in the journal Science Translational Medicine. Stem cells exist throughout the body, and they fascinate scientists because they have the ability to become different types of cells - which means they have the potential to repair or replace damaged or worn out tissue. Figuring out new ways to make them useful has long been a goal of medical researchers.
