Chiropractors Present Themselves As An Alternative To Painkillers
by CJ Arlotta
July 28, 2016
As government officials attempt to tackle the opioid epidemic, associations advocating for nonpharmacologic approaches to pain management are launching their own campaigns to inform the general public of alternatives to prescription painkillers.
There were 18,893 deaths involving prescription opioids in the country in 2014, up 16% from 2013. Deaths involving drugs like fentanyl and tramadol increased by 79% from 2013 to 2014. Often it's said that healthcare companies don't cover chiropractic services for those in pain, but according to research published by the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, that's not the case. The non-profit organization's findings revealed that up to 87% of all insured American employees are covered for chiropractic care.
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.
Chiropractors In Australia Barred From Making Antivax Claims
by Emily Willingham
August 8, 2013
The connection between being a chiropractor and eschewing vaccines goes back to an emphasis on subluxations as a cause for disease rather than, you know, infectious agents like viruses and bacteria.
Chiropracty subluxated itself into medicine in 1895 when a "magnetic healer and grocer" in Iowa claimed that he'd restored a deaf man's hearing using the approach. The practice is based on the idea that the things that are wrong with you arise from misalignments of your spinal column (subluxations), but the level of adherence to this odd philosophy among chiropractors can vary.

Austin -- Cold lasers, also known as low level lasers, have been utilized throughout Europe for decades. While new to the United States, decades of worldwide cold laser use have produced few, if any, widely reported of side effects to date.

Laser light penetrates the body and is thought to stimulate metabolic process in the body.

by Kristin Callahan

Walk into a chiropractor's office and you will see necks, backs and ankles being cracked - and, increasingly, some of them will belong to children.
With the demand for complementary and alternative treatment increasing, more people are considering the use of chiropractic care for children and newborns. In fact, it is the most common type of complementary and alternative care for children, according to a study done by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association in 2010. The study showed an estimated 86 million pediatric visits were made to chiropractors throughout the United States, Canada and Europe in 2007, the most recent data available.

Doctors nowadays would likely diagnose Einstein with attention deficit disorder, chiropractor Dr. Susan Cunico told a small group of parents, mostly mothers, assembled at Belle Reve senior facility in Milford.
The symptoms include "constant talking, inattention, fidgeting, and blurting out," said Cunico, who practices in Sandyston, N.J. But many children who have those symptoms are quite bright and symptoms can have varied causes, she said. In fact, they may fall within the spectrum of normal childhood behavior.

Chiropractor emphasizes individual care
by Fred Pollard
May 17, 2010
EAST ALTON - For Dr. Danny Vetter, D.C., chiropractic health is more than a quick crack of the back.
"The benefits of chiropractic health include being totally drug-free and surgery-free. It uses the body's own ability to heal itself. We don't cure anything; we facilitate the body's natural healing. God didn't make mistakes when He made us. The natural state of your body is health, not disease."

A passion for travel and an instinct to help has driven Dr. Lona Cook to Haiti and the Dominican Republic for the second straight year.
Cook is a chiropractor. "A lot of times, people want to know: "Well, as chiropractors, what can you do?" Cook doesn't leave them unimpressed. On her second mission trip to Costa Rica, Cook met a wheelchair-bound man who, after one adjustment, came back the next day with a walker.
Chiropractic: As Individual as a Handshake
by Charles Masarsky, DC
June 12, 2008
Well-meaning but misinformed friends, relatives and even health professionals often dissuade parents from placing their children under chiropractic care.
This often is based on the misperception that a chiropractic adjustment is "too rough," and that a young child's spine should not be "subjected" to it. In reality, a chiropractic adjustment has much in common with a handshake.
