BABY GOT BACK: So, time for a spinal adjustment right after birth
by Tory Shepherd
July 20, 2012
Chiropractic care is an alternative medicine based on the belief that "subluxations" in the spine cause a range of ailments, which can be treated by manipulating the spine.
"Immediately after birth, Chirochild practitioners are qualified to assess the nerves, muscles and joints of all babies. After living in a cramped uterus, and the trauma of vaginal and caesarean deliveries, newborn checks are sought by more and more people." Sydney's Family First Chiropractic even believes babies can benefit before they are born, by ensuring mothers are free from subluxations.
Chiropractic Care Serves as Alternative to Pain Medication
July 16, 2012
LAS VEGAS - The Neck and Back Clinics in Las Vegas, NV is encouraging patients who struggle with chronic neck and back pain to consider chiropractic care.
According to chiropractor Dr. Benjamin S. Lurie, chiropractic adjustments have successfully helped thousands of his patients when traditional medical care was unable to provide sufficient pain relief. Chiropractic adjustments are an alternative treatment for relieving pain following a car accident injury. Dr. Lurie says that many patients choose spinal adjustments over medication and before considering surgery.
Yosemite's Half Dome climb gets a bit easier
by Joshua Emerson Smith
July 15, 2012
YOSEMITE -- The permit process to climb Half Dome has made the iconic destination safer and more enjoyable, according to park officials.
But hikers making their way up the set of steel cables on the final 400-foot ascent must still cope with the inevitable moment when a nervous hiker freezes up, forcing the entire line into a vertical midair traffic jam on the side of the 8,800-foot granite monolith. It is dangerous especially if you're not prepared, said Duane Poslusny, a law enforcement ranger who checks permits using an iPad at the area known as the Sub-Dome.
Right from the start

New chiropractors are well advised to study those with more experience. But you can learn a lot from those who are just starting out of the gate, too.
But of course the Internet is useful in a variety of ways - not the least of which is marketing. "When I was in practice 40 years ago, you had to be listed in the Yellow Pages," Singer says. These days, the advice is different for the 1,000 practices he consults with each year. "Patients don't find you in the Yellow Pages. They find you on the Internet." But this isn't news, right? "You would be surprised at how many established chiropractors have no website or don't know what social media is," notes Nona Djavid, DC. In 2008, she started two businesses: her own practice and MyChiroPractice Inc., a marketing and branding company exclusively for chiropractors.

Doctor-chiropractor team can ease low back pain, project finds
June 14, 2012
Family doctors working closely with chiropractors to ease a patient's low back pain can lead to fast and effective treatment, a pilot project found.
Doctors reported sending fewer patients for tests and surgical specialists after an assessment and recommendations by a chiropractor during the Ministry of Health-funded study by the Ontario Chiropractic Association. The traditional route is referring patients to an orthopedic surgeon and ordering MRIs to determine if surgery is necessary, a long process and in most cases surgery is not warranted. Meanwhile, a patient can often become inactive out of fear of further aggravating the condition and simply because of the discomfort.
GAO: Feds lose $80M looking for Medicaid fraud
by Kelli Kennedy
Private contractors received $102 million to review Medicaid fraud data, yet had only found about $20 million in overpayments since 2008, according to a new report by the federal government.
"Significant federal and state resources are being poured in but only limited results are coming out," said Ann Maxwell, a regional inspector general for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The audits were found to be so ineffective they were stopped or put on hold, according to a report by the Government Accountability Office. The agency studied Medicaid audits performed by 10 companies.

Ease the pain of gardening with stretches and proper tools
by Lois Abraham
May 28, 2012
Lugging bags of potting soil, turning compacted flower beds and pulling hard-to-reach weeds offer plenty of exercise, but when these tasks are done incorrectly they can result in stiff and sore joints along with muscle, neck and back pain.
Chiropractors and other specialists who treat people for aches and pains often see a surge in business after the weekends from people who try to get all their gardening done in one go. The association's public awareness program, called "plant and rake without the ache," was launched because chiropractors were seeing so many patients with aching backs from gardening.
