Orthopedic surgeons call for a study of outcomes under the demonstration program.

Adjusting animals - Dixon chiropractor able to heal horses
by David Henson
December 26, 2005
A couple of years ago, Antionette Staniewicz noticed her blonde-haired quarter horse didn't saunter as vivaciously as she once did, so she called Dr. Troy Stevens to see if he could help.
Stevens, though, wasn't a veterinarian - Staniewicz had already tried that route to no avail. Instead, Stevens was her chiropractor, who she said healed her after a terrible riding accident. "I had such great success with Dr. Troy myself that I wanted to see what he could do for Barbie," Staniewicz said. As it turns out, a lot.
A Drug Recall That Should Frighten Us All About The FDA - Forbes
by David Maris
October 10, 2012
Pay attention, as I can't say this seriously enough. Last week, the FDA took a drug off the market, and the reasons should send shivers of fear down the backs of consumers, investors, generic drug companies - and the FDA.
The FDA announced last week that the 300mg generic version of Wellbutrin XL manufactured by Impax Laboratories and marketed by Teva Pharmaceuticals was being recalled because it did not work. And this wasn't just a problem with one batch - this is a problem that has been going on with this particular drug for four or five years, and the FDA did everything it could to ignore it. The FDA apparently approved this drug - and others like it - without testing it. The FDA just assumed if one dosage strength the drug companies submitted for approval works, then the other higher dosages work fine also. With this generic, American consumers became the FDA's guinea pigs to see if the FDA's assumption was right. It wasn't.
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.
Bellmore-Merrick chiropractors offer tips for pain-free snow-shoveling
by David Weingrad
January 12, 2012
While Nassau County has been mostly devoid of snowfall this winter, temperatures have dropped of late, leading weather-savvy residents to believe that the first snowfall of 2012 may be coming sooner rather than later.
And when that day comes, South Shore residents will be left with the grueling task of shoveling snow off their stoops, sidewalks and driveways. Determined to finish the task as quickly as possible, many people ignore proper shoveling techniques, leading to muscle strain and back pain. Fortunately, local chiropractors are offering tips on how to avoid discomfort while shoveling snow.
Perennial Vegetables: Years of Bounty
by Dawn Gifford
March 4, 2013
With the exception of asparagus, rhubarb and artichokes, most gardeners are unaware of the tasty, nutritious bounty that perennial vegetables can offer.
According to Perennial Vegetables by Eric Toensmeier, most North American gardening and farming traditions come from Europe, where there are very few perennial crops except fruits and nuts. Cold and temperate Eurasian agriculture centered around livestock, annual grains and legumes, and early European settlers to North America simply brought their seeds and their cultivation methods with them, including draft animals for plowing up the soil every year.

Save the Gallbladder - PURGE!
by Doug Heise, D.C.
July 22, 2017
Color is incomprehensible to the blind. Harmony is beyond the senses of the tone deaf. To the King, the voices of peasants are lost and unheard! So it is with the tragedy of the citizen of this advanced technological society.
Gallbladder dysfunction is one of the most common health problems encountered in chiropractic as well as medical offices today. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most misunderstood. More than 600,000 cholecystectomies are performed in this country alone every year, despite overwhelming evidence that most are unnecessary. Repeated warnings have been printed in medical journals against this practice, but to avail.
