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.
Junk! Organic! Fair Trade! Have You Noticed The Food Fight's Heating Up?
by Sascha Garrey
July 2, 2013
Food used to be a simple pleasure. But lately, it seems there are a million things to worry about when it comes to food. Even buying a plain-old bunch of carrots can induce anxiety: Are they local? Are they organic? How much vitamin A do I need anyway?
And then there's the "personal is political" stance taking over many modern American kitchens. These are the raw-whole-natural-organic-local-fair-trade types who oppose the mainstream industrialization of food and food distribution. One example: the recent viral post published by BuzzFeed that lists some of the alarming health horrors linked to chemicals in everyday favorites like Froot Loops and milk.
Joint adjustments recommended for osteoarthritis care
October 14, 2012
Manual joint adjustments and stretching should be used as part of the care of osteoarthritis particularly of the hip, according to the latest gold standard recommendations published by the UK National Institute of Clinical Evidence (NICE).
The New Zealand Chiropractors' Association points out that manual care as practised by chiropractors is highlighted in the new recommendations citing strong evidence for the benefit of joint adjustments alone compared with exercise instead of early use of pharmaceuticals.
Jaw Pain and Chiropractic
March 12, 2015
Pain in the jaw joint, or temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD), is a common complaint for many people. In fact, a 2009 publication reported that TMD affects between 20-30% of the adult population, typically between 20 and 40 years old.
TMD is also the second most frequent cause of orofacial pain after dental / toothache pain. While acute TMD (pain less than three months) and chronic TMD (pain more than three months) are NOT considered to be life-threatening, they can significantly alter one's quality of life and for some, can be quite disabling.
Jane Goodall Is Still Wild at Heart
by Paul Tullis
March 15, 2015
Half a century ago, she journeyed into the Tanzanian jungle to change how the world saw chimpanzees. Today the world's most famous conservationist is on a mission to save their lives.
Goodall, then 22, saved for two years to pay for her passage to Kenya: waitressing, doing secretarial work, temping at the post office in her hometown, Bournemouth, on England's southern coast, during the holiday rush. She had spent her last few days in London saying goodbyes and picking up a few things for the trip at Peter Jones, the department store in Chelsea. Now all this was for naught, it seemed. The passport must have fallen out of her purse somewhere.
Is Your Horse Pick for the Kentucky Derby a Winner? With Chiropractic Care, It Might Be!
May 5, 2016
Most Off-the-track Thoroughbreds (OTTBs) need some chiropractic care. Their hips are slammed from behind in the starting gate, their heads are twisted sideways by the pony horse or on the hot walker.
They are strong animals - they resist and pull muscles. Just as we humans can benefit from good chiropractic care, followed by stretching exercises to help us stay aligned, so do horses.
Is your child's backpack too heavy?
by Dr. Michael Jones
August 18, 2011
Chiropractors and pediatricians agree backpacks are a problem for a child's spine.
It is usually not the backpack by itself that causes the issues, but rather the improper carrying of the bag as well as overloading that can lead to headaches and neck, shoulder and lower-back pain. The question that arises with backpacks is how heavy is too heavy?
Is Food Packaging Affecting Your Health?
by Marcelle Pick, OB-GYN N.P.
May 19, 2011
Most of us are genuinely trying to do our best to be healthy -- we buy organic food, try to drink filtered water and include more fruits and vegetables with every meal. But what about the packaging surrounding our food?
Chemicals like Bisphenol A (BPA), phthalates and PCV (polyvinyl chloride) have all been found in plastic food packaging, the linings of soda cans and canned food. These chemicals, often referred to as endocrine disruptors, do much more than simply help to protect and contain our food. They can mimic our natural hormones, turning on or off the body's native hormone signals to block natural responses or trigger excessive action.
Is California's Epidemic of Vaccine Legislation About Merck's Political "Health?"
April 20, 2015
Between December 17-20, 2014, measles arrived at the happiest place on earth and all hell broke loose. Anti-vaxxers were shamed and maligned by everyone from Jon Stewart, Jimmy Kimmel to Dr. Richard Pan.
According to the California Department of Public Health's latest measles surveillance report (3/6/15), since December of 2014, there have been 132 confirmed measles cases reported in California residents out of a population of 38.8 million. 40 cases visited Disneyland during the period in question. 81% were not hospitalized. 56% were over the age of twenty. 18% were between the ages of five to nineteen. 19 cases were between the ages of one through four. 15 cases were under the age of one. This affected exactly 34 kids from birth to age four. Since the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting in December of 2012, there have been 109 school shootings and no legislation. There is no measles epidemic. There is, however, an epidemic of vaccine legislation.
Infantile colic could be the cause of a baby's crying
by Jessie Moniz
April 12, 2011
There are some babies who are as good as gold and spend all day cooing and smiling at people, and then there are those others the ones that cry from day one, for months on end.
Infantile colic is defined as babies under three months old crying for more than three hours a day. Doctors are still out on the cause of colic. Some people attribute it to gas, undeveloped intestines, a food allergy or just general disposition. Some researchers are now looking at the possibility that the baby's back and spine may be part of the problem.
