Chiropractic Adjustments, comment

May 12, 2011

I totally disagree with Agency for Health Care Policy and Research. There are other drugless treatments available for the initial pain in the low back. They include massage therapy, hydrotherapy, wax therapy, and exercise therapy. The list can go on further. I would dare say that massage therapy is used more than chiropractic adjustments for initial low back pain within the United States. If anyone has research to prove me wrong, please show me.

Chiropractic Adjustments
With approximately 15 million patients annually, chiropractic is now America’s second largest health care system. Translating to “done with the hands,” chiropractic therapy uses physical manipulation of the spine and joints to relieve pain, decompress nerves and return positive energy to the body. Chiropractic adjustments help prevent wear and tear of the joints by maintaining their proper positioning and decreases scar tissue formation after injury. The Agency for Health Care Policy and Research endorses chiropractic therapy as the only, safe and effective, drugless form of initial treatment for low back pain. Because the spinal column acts like a switchboard for the nervous system, proper alignment is essential for good health.

A Great Change

May 10, 2011

Guest post written by Chris Farson

Moving to South Virgina was a difficult change for my family. My wife has lived in one state her whole life and my kids are pretty young and had to leave their friends and the area they grew up in. We came down here because my mother and father are from this state. Now that they are a little older, they have had some health issues and I need to be closer to them so that I can help them out. They have been the best parents a guy could ask for, and they were always there for me. The least I can do is be closer to them.

I’ve already helped them with a few things. The other day I took my dad to get a free hearing test in a Virginia MiracleEar center. I helped my mother get to an annual doctor’s appointment, and I helped both of them move some things out of their home. While I know that I did the right thing, I hope my family learns to love this state. It’s going to be a big change, but I think it will be for the best.
