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.

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.

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.
Durbin Attack on Supplements Fails Again
by Lee Bechtel
May 24, 2012
The Durbin amendment, # 2127, to S.B.3187 to reauthorize the FDA Prescription Drug and the Medical Device User Fees has failed on the Senate floor.
The Durbin amendment would have heaped yet more reporting requirements on supplement manufacturers with those companies who launched, reformulated, or discontinued supplements having to report those products and any changes within thirty days of the launch, reformulation, or change. What does any of this nonsense have to do with food safety? Absolutely nothing. It's all about making supplements more expensive and less affordable for the average consumer.
Ask the Doctor: How to Manage Tension Headaches
May 16, 2012
The featured question this week: I have headaches a few times a week. They start in the neck, and I usually wind up with a headache by the evening. Is there anything I can do?
As a chiropractor, I see this type of headache a lot. Tension headaches usually begin with some tension in the neck and shoulders and by evening, the tension turns into a headache that is oftentimes at the base of the skull. Unfortunately, a lot of our daily activities are going to predispose many of us to getting these type of headaches.

27 Years Later and there is No Deaths from Vitamins but 3 Million Dead from Pharmaceutical Drugs
April 1, 2012
Despite mainstream medical establishments and media outlets portraying multivitamin supplements as worthless and oftentimes toxic, vitamins have led to 0 deaths over the past 27 years.
In contrast, pharmaceutical drugs were responsible for 3 million deaths, topping the death toll from traffic-related incidents. In 2009, pharmaceuticals were responsible for the death of 37,485 people nationwide. The statistics come from the Annual Report of the American Association of Poison Control Centers' National Poison Data System (NPDS), and the findings go against the claims of most mainstream doctors and medical officials, who claim that pharmaceutical drugs are the only 'science-backed' method to 'treating' illness.
