Pregnancy and Chiropractic
by Martha Collins, D.C.
February 6, 2005
As I write this today, two of our beautiful practice members are awaiting the arrival of new additions to their families. Adjusting women through pregnancy is one of the most rewarding parts of our work, because a healthier pregnancy means an easier labou
On Monday night at our workshop, a young woman told the story of the traumatic birth of her son, and the subsequent eight years of poor health he has suffered as a result. She was unaware that Chiropractic care through pregnancy would have given him a better start, and angry that she didn't know this prior to her son's conception. I promised her I'd get the word out. This article is dedicated to her and her son with the intent that this information will prevent another mother and child years of heartbreak.
Chiropractic Influence on Oxidative Stress and DNA Repair
Medical News Today (UK)
March 7, 2005
There is a growing body of evidence that wellness care provided by doctors of chiropractic may reduce health care costs, improve health behaviors, and enhance patient perceived quality of life.
In a landmark study published this week in the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research (JVSR; http://www.jvsr.com), chiropractors collaborating with researchers at the University of Lund found that chiropractic care could influence basic physiological processes affecting oxidative stress and DNA repair. These findings offer a scientific explanation for the positive health benefits reported by patients receiving chiropractic care.
Vaccinations and Freedom of Choice in Health Care
World Chiropractic Alliance
April 10, 2005
Medical and scientific research, as well as overwhelming clinical reports, have clearly demonstrated the potential for risk posed by many commonly administered vaccines.
These same reports have indicated that the effectiveness of many of these vaccines has not been adequately proven. Based on such evidence, doctors of chiropractic have been joined by progressive medical doctors and public health administrators in questioning public policy regarding mandatory vaccines.
Placebos, Nocebos, and Chiropractic Adjustments
by Samuel Homola, D.C.
Appropriate spinal manipulation provides both real and placebo benefits in the treatment of mechanical-type neck and back problems.
But chiropractic adjustments based on the vertebral subluxation theory may offer a placebo effect that is outweighed by a nocebo effect. The word placebo, which is Latin for "I shall please," first appeared in the literature in 1785 and was eventually defined as "make-believe medicine." There is plenty of evidence to indicate that spinal manipulation has beneficial effects -- both real and placebo.
Kids cope with back-busting packs
by Ryan Sabalow
May 5, 2005
More books, less lockers leading to student pain. On some days, 11-year-old Ryan Wallace of Auburn can barely lift his backpack off the ground.
Ryan makes periodic visits to a chiropractor because the number of books in his pack is too much for his growing frame. "The weight of them is just incredible," he said. "Some days it can be 30 to 40 pounds per backpack." Cameron Dean, a 6-year-old first-grader at Auburn Elementary, said his mother got him a roller-pack because his regular one was causing painful problems.
This is not a month for slouchers

This is National Correct Posture Month. The American Chiropractic Association, wishes "to broaden public awareness of the importance of correct posture as an integral part of everyday health care."
I tried sitting up straight when all those teachers told me to, but it never took. I've since pretty much resigned myself to slouching through life, shoulders relaxed, head down.
Parameters of Chiropractic Care for Pediatric Patients
Medical News Today
September 13, 2005
The Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics of the International Chiropractors Association, released today a document entitled, "The Child Patient: A Matrix for Chiropractic Care."
This groundbreaking document, authored by Dr. Joan Fallon, for the first time outlines the parameters for necessity of chiropractic care for children of all ages.

Back (or neck) breaking work
The Daily Eastern News

It is a moment of anticipation. Amidst a doctor's voice telling you to relax and saying that this is going to be such a simple procedure that you will leave saying, "that was it, that's all it took," you all of a sudden hear the noise ...
"cc-rr-ACK." For a second I took the time to realize that was indeed my neck that just made that usually horrifying sound. The loudness of my neck cracking was then validated by my doctor's reaction of, and I believe this is a technical term, "wowie!" Soon after it is done, though, I had feelings only of relief and confidence in my doctor.
Stress and spinal health
Orangeburg Times Democrat (SC)

Fear, anxiety, frustration, depression. Separation, divorce, bereavement. Life is surrounded by inescapable stressors.
Statistics show that more than 66 percent of all visits to primary-care physicians are for stress-related disorders, and every week, 112 million people take medication for stress-related medical conditions. "Most people eat a healthy diet, schedule regular dental check-ups and eye exams, but neglect one of the most important parts of the body - their spines. By removing vertebral subluxations from the body, the nervous system can function properly, and a person is better able to cope with physical and mental stress," said Dr. Shay.
