Poor-fitting Athletic Shoes Can Lead to Back Pain, Chiropractors Say
by American Chiropractic Association
December 6, 2005
ARLINGTON, Va., -- Too many people choose fashion over function when purchasing running shoes, not realizing that poor-fitting shoes
can do more than hurt their stride; they can also lead to pain throughout the body.
Because footwear plays such an important role in the functional biomechanics of the human body -- especially for runners and other athletes -- choosing the right shoe can help eliminate pain in your back, hips, knees and feet, says the American Chiropractic Association (ACA). "Your feet are the foundation of your body, and if they are not properly supported you can have problems anywhere from the bottom of your feet up through your neck," explains Jeffery Solomon, DC, president of the ACA's Council on Sports Injuries & Physical Fitness.

LAHORE: It could be time to discard the adage that an apple a day keeps the doctor away.

"Handheld music machines are extremely popular and users are constantly using small, difficult buttons with the same finger in a repetitive motion," said Carl Irwin from the British Chiropractic Association.

Migraine headaches started for Larry Wetzel at just four years old. It's the second most common reason why children seek chiropractic care.
Baker and her colleagues see patients much younger than Larry, even newborns. She says it's the result of more interference in the labor and delivery process and, the more stressful the birth, the more likely that the baby's spine can be affected.
In older children, the spinal column can be out of alignment if a foot is turned out or in, hips and arms are not the same length, or if there's fatigue and joint aches.

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.
Question: Are you subluxated?

For more than 100 years, chiropractors have been viewed as many things. Some people think that chiropractors are "back pain, neck pain doctors." Others think that they are great with ear infections and asthma. Others think chiropractors fix headaches.
Chiropractors only perform one function, and that is to identify, locate and correct the interference to the nervous system. The nervous system in turn is able to do its job, controlling and coordinating every organ, tissue and cell of the body - like an orchestra. This allows the symphony within your body to play at its highest possible level of perfection.

Laser Therapy is a revolutionary treatment option that is providing lasting pain relief from long-term ailments often responsible for years of suffering.
It wasn't that long ago that people with knee injuries were forced to endure surgery and long months of recovery time. Surgery was a dreaded experience and the outcome was never all that optimistic until laparoscopic surgery came along. With smaller incisions came faster recovery times and faster healing. Wouldn't it be terrific if you could get that same healing power without the surgery' Many Chiropractic patients are doing just that.

How important is it that we tell people about Chiropractic? How much urgency do you have about sharing it with others? Most of us have seen the benefit to us in more than just the removal of symptoms.

When we have a symptom we don't look outside of ourselves for an answer, we look for the cause. We have a certain respect for our bodies and for the intelligence that resides in it. We are pro-active in assuring our good health by including regular adjustments as a way to make sure that our nervous symptom is working the best that it can.
