Adjusting animals - Dixon chiropractor able to heal horses
by David Henson
December 26, 2005
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.
Family First: Chiropractic Checkups for Kids
by Carrie Hutton
December 21, 2005
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.

LAHORE: It could be time to discard the adage that an apple a day keeps the doctor away.
According to Guardian, a British newspaper, with Apple Computer's iPod digital music player continuing to sell well, and the tiny iPod nano set to be one of the must-have gifts this Christmas, physicians are now warning that the first cases of a condition they are labelling "iPod finger" have started to emerge. "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.
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.

Fear, anxiety, frustration, depression. Separation, divorce, bereavement. Life is surrounded by inescapable stressors.
Statistics show that more than 66 percent of all visits to primary-care physicians are for stress-related disorders, and every week, 112 million people take medication for stress-related medical conditions. "Most people eat a healthy diet, schedule regular dental check-ups and eye exams, but neglect one of the most important parts of the body - their spines. By removing vertebral subluxations from the body, the nervous system can function properly, and a person is better able to cope with physical and mental stress," said Dr. Shay.
Back (or neck) breaking work

It is a moment of anticipation. Amidst a doctor's voice telling you to relax and saying that this is going to be such a simple procedure that you will leave saying, "that was it, that's all it took," you all of a sudden hear the noise ...
"cc-rr-ACK." For a second I took the time to realize that was indeed my neck that just made that usually horrifying sound. The loudness of my neck cracking was then validated by my doctor's reaction of, and I believe this is a technical term, "wowie!" Soon after it is done, though, I had feelings only of relief and confidence in my doctor.

This is National Correct Posture Month. The American Chiropractic Association, wishes "to broaden public awareness of the importance of correct posture as an integral part of everyday health care."
I tried sitting up straight when all those teachers told me to, but it never took. I've since pretty much resigned myself to slouching through life, shoulders relaxed, head down.
Kids cope with back-busting packs
by Ryan Sabalow
May 5, 2005
More books, less lockers leading to student pain. On some days, 11-year-old Ryan Wallace of Auburn can barely lift his backpack off the ground.
Ryan makes periodic visits to a chiropractor because the number of books in his pack is too much for his growing frame. "The weight of them is just incredible," he said. "Some days it can be 30 to 40 pounds per backpack." Cameron Dean, a 6-year-old first-grader at Auburn Elementary, said his mother got him a roller-pack because his regular one was causing painful problems.
