Chiropractor refutes approaches to ADHD

Doctors nowadays would likely diagnose Einstein with attention deficit disorder, chiropractor Dr. Susan Cunico told a small group of parents, mostly mothers, assembled at Belle Reve senior facility in Milford.
The symptoms include "constant talking, inattention, fidgeting, and blurting out," said Cunico, who practices in Sandyston, N.J. But many children who have those symptoms are quite bright and symptoms can have varied causes, she said. In fact, they may fall within the spectrum of normal childhood behavior.
Chiropractors crack necks, backs and ankles - increasingly among children
by Kristin Callahan
March 6, 2013
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.

Austin -- Cold lasers, also known as low level lasers, have been utilized throughout Europe for decades. While new to the United States, decades of worldwide cold laser use have produced few, if any, widely reported of side effects to date.
Laser light has been thought to stimulate tissue and aid tissue to heal more rapidly. Common uses include pain control, wound care, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome and many other painful and debilitating conditions. Many doctors use the comparison of taking a sick plant and putting it out in the sun in describing how they believe laser light helps to heal tissue in the human body. Laser light penetrates the body and is thought to stimulate metabolic process in the body.
Chiropractors In Australia Barred From Making Antivax Claims
by Emily Willingham
August 8, 2013
The connection between being a chiropractor and eschewing vaccines goes back to an emphasis on subluxations as a cause for disease rather than, you know, infectious agents like viruses and bacteria.
Chiropracty subluxated itself into medicine in 1895 when a "magnetic healer and grocer" in Iowa claimed that he'd restored a deaf man's hearing using the approach. The practice is based on the idea that the things that are wrong with you arise from misalignments of your spinal column (subluxations), but the level of adherence to this odd philosophy among chiropractors can vary.
Chiropractors not just for people
by David Schwab
April 12, 2013
Many people who have aches and pains in their joints will visit a chiropractor. What many might not know is that it's a popular practice for horses as well.
Kristen Vetter of rural East Grand Forks gave us a demonstration of her chiropractic work on one of her horses at her farm. She was just certified last September and now is working on ten or more horses a week. This involves a series of touches and inspections that begin at the head and work towards the tail of the horse. Vetter can identify vertebrae that may be out of alignment by the horses tension to a touch, and then she gently moves the joint back into place.
Chiropractors Present Themselves As An Alternative To Painkillers
by CJ Arlotta
July 28, 2016
As government officials attempt to tackle the opioid epidemic, associations advocating for nonpharmacologic approaches to pain management are launching their own campaigns to inform the general public of alternatives to prescription painkillers.
There were 18,893 deaths involving prescription opioids in the country in 2014, up 16% from 2013. Deaths involving drugs like fentanyl and tramadol increased by 79% from 2013 to 2014. Often it's said that healthcare companies don't cover chiropractic services for those in pain, but according to research published by the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, that's not the case. The non-profit organization's findings revealed that up to 87% of all insured American employees are covered for chiropractic care.

Chiropractors Who Publish the Truth About Vaccines to be Silenced in Australia
by Louise Kuo Habakus and Mary Holland J.D.
August 13, 2013
In a brazen restriction of freedom of speech, chiropractors in Australia are being told they can no longer give their patients any information criticizing vaccines, and they must take down any anti-vaccine material from their websites.
If there could possibly be one country with a worse pro-vaccine bias than the United States, it just might be Australia. Starting with the (wrong!) presupposition that vaccines are safe and effective, there are moves to silence any opposing viewpoints on vaccines, including the chiropractic profession. Working from a healing paradigm that does not include drugs, the chiropractic profession has a long history of healing people. But this infuriates the medical profession that believes only drugs can treat sickness. The chiropractic profession has suffered much opposition in the U.S. also from the American Medical Association (AMA), who historically has tried to destroy them. The Supreme Court eventually found the AMA guilty of conspiracy to destroy the chiropractic industry.
Chronic Or Permanent Stress Can Result In Mental Disorders Such As Schizophrenia
by Justin Caba
December 10, 2014
Long-term stress's impact on cells in the immune system, primarily microglial cells, can lead to the development of mental disorders, such as schizophrenia.
A recent study published in the Rubin science magazine has revealed that chronic or permanent stress's effect on microglial cells - immune-competent cells responsible for repairing synaptic links, removing damaged synapses, and facilitating the growth of new brain neurons - can lead to the development of mental disorders, such as schizophrenia.
