Nearly 1 in 20 Americans older than 50 have artificial knees, or more than 4 million people, according to the first national estimate showing how common these replacement joints have become in an aging population.

A Head Full of Pain
January 20, 2012
It pounded away at her ear - rhythmic, loud and unrelenting. The noise was always present but seemed to get worse when she lay down or turned her head a certain way. Usually it was just annoying, but sometimes it grew so loud she had trouble hearing.
A few weeks later, she suddenly felt as if she had been hit on the left side of her head with a brick. The pain was blinding. She had to leave work to lie in a darkened room. It was probably a migraine, her doctor told her, giving her a prescription for a drug called Zomig and ordering an M.R.I. of her brain. Neither the medicine nor the scans were helpful. The headache lasted two more days. After that, the occasional migraine would come and go; the whooshing noise remained constant.

Getting treated by a chiropractor and taking light exercise may be the best way to relieve neck pain, according to new research.
The support group Arthritis Ireland says the findings underline the fact that arthritis and muscular pain require more than just a drug-treatment approach.

Get Moving with Arthritis
by Dr. Michael Jones
January 12, 2012
Arthritis is one of the most common chronic health conditions and is the leading cause of disability in the U.S. for individuals over the age of 15.
Arthritis can make even the most mundane things difficult, including walking, bathing or even getting dressed. In 1985, some 35 million Americans were found to have some form of arthritis or chronic joint symptom. In 2006, this number rose to 46 million and the growth is endless, with projections placing the number of those afflicted with arthritis being 67 million by 2030.

Improving Posture: Create a 24/7 Bubble of Health & Function
by Tim Brown, DC
December 30, 2011
No matter how well we've mastered our skills as chiropractors and no matter what techniques we use in our practice, our patients' patterned postural habits between office visits can dictate the level of success of our treatment plans.
One of my main motivations to become a chiropractor was my experience as an often-injured athlete. Innately, I was never satisfied with the symptom-oriented treatment the traditional medical model offered. I felt that given the right guidance, I could be doing things outside of the treatment and training room that would help my body heal faster and perhaps more effectively prevent future injury.
Brandon chiropractor reveals dark secret in book
by Jill Meier
The words were the actual thoughts of a young boy, David Ward, contemplating suicide in the mid-1970s. A variety of emotional incidents â€“ his fatherâ€™s unexpected death and ongoing bullying - led him to those life-ending actions.
Later in the book, Ward tells how God's intervention stopped him from climbing the tower that day to end his life. Now, nearly four decades later, Ward shares his emotional story and powerful message in a 79-page book, “A Life Almost Wasted." Dr. Ward said he initially felt God's calling to share his story about six years ago.
Slovakia doctors threaten to leave over low pay
November 28, 2011
Slovakia has declared a state of emergency in more than a dozen hospitals to ensure that health care is not compromised after thousands of doctors resigned from public hospitals over low pay.
Prime Minister Iveta Radicova, speaking after an emergency government meeting on the crisis, said the measures involve 15 hospitals across the country, including two clinics in the capital, Bratislava. Around 2,000 doctors in state-run hospitals have handed in their resignations, effective Dec. 1, if their demands for higher pay are not met. More than 7,000 doctors work in Slovak hospitals. The state of emergency means the doctors must stay at their jobs or face fines or even prison terms.
