Multiple Independent Threshold Units

You probably don’t want to read the review of the Study, but…Things have changed… Again.

“Using new types of experiments on neuronal cultures, a group of scientists, led by Prof. Ido Kanter, of the Department of Physics at Bar-Ilan University, has demonstrated that this century-old assumption regarding brain activity is mistaken.”

My First Back Injury

“I had no idea chiropractic was covered by insurance.”

That from today’s new patient. If you know anyone suffering from back pain, neck pain, or headaches (or knee pain, or shoulder pain, or… or…), you would be doing them a great service to mention that chiropractic might help them.

A chiropractic patient is qualified as a chiropractic patient because they need chiropractic care, not because of their complaints, or lack of complaints.

We look for a condition that is often no painful – it will likely eventually become painful. It may be painful, it may not. The condition we look for and attempt to prevent, correct, or manage is a progressive condition: it will get worse if it is left uncared for. It will lead to degenerative changes, eventually. And this process will lead to disease labels.

If a patient waits too long, there may be little that chiropractic care can do. But you will not know that without an examination, and usually a trial of care.

And if someone you know, work with or are related to is suffering, does have the condition that chiropractors look for and correct, and does not get chiropractic care, there is a good chance that, symptom relief or not, they will still have that condition afterwards. By this I mean medication, physical therapy, massage, may give symptomatic relief; if may not correct the underlying condition causing the symptoms.

It is an old story. We who have been telling it for decades tend to assume everyone knows it. But like insurance coverage, which has been standard for chiropractic care since the early 70’s, not everyone knows.

You need to tell them.

Stroke Risk Factors Going Up…

From a new Study…

And, keep in mind, I wouldn’t be talking about this if it were not all preventable. Managing risk factors is the epitome of prevention.

I Am Not The Only One Who Gets Frustrated

Here, an elder tai chi brother of mine from Brussels, Wim Demeere, goes off on the subject of poorly trained professional athletes.

Is it any wonder that the average guy or gal on the street, working, recreating, and performing all the activities of life doesn’t have a clue how to move correctly. They merrily march on toward their next (or first) episode of injurious pain.

Notice: he doesn’t break the Knee Rule; he maintains Neutral Spine (Even in the neck!). And he pointing to his heels – where the majority of the weight lands.

And, finally, notice that he talks about the “Hip Crease” – of the three Elements of Bending & Lifting, this is the KEY element: without it you can not achieve the other two.

The Godfather of Fitness

I was just looking for a Jack LaLanne quote, which I found at Wikipedia, of course.

Reading the story on Jack LaLanne (a Chiropractic Doctor, by the way), I am just struck by what an amazing example he was. I remember as a child in the 60’s doing the floor exercises with my mother… In the 70’s his name and story were there as I read the works of Paul Bragg. In the 80′ his name always came up in the bodybuilding, muscle and fitness magazines that I read. I think it was the 90’s that he was famous as the juicing celebrity – not to mention the feats of strength that he would perform as he celebrated each decade of life – stunts that no one attempts to duplicate (that I know of).

He was something.

Oh, and the quote that I was looking for? It is the last sentence of this longer quote of his:

“Dying is easy. Living is a pain in the butt. It’s like an athletic event. You’ve got to train for it. You’ve got to eat right. You’ve got to exercise. Your health account, your bank account, they’re the same thing. The more you put in, the more you can take out. Exercise is king and nutrition is queen: together, you have a kingdom.”

Pony Tails and Headaches

Maybe you too?

“I feel amazing” she said. And “doing stuff that I haven’t done in years… and on my knees too!”

When I met this patient in December of last year, it was: “I sometimes have to pull over…” while driving due to knee pain. She said that her back was “always really tight” and it had been that way for two years.

Now?

She is going a month between visits. She knows how to brace and breathe, and how to bend and lift, as well as get up and down off the ground. She does the exercises to keep the joints that I adjust moving between visits; and she is helping her husband build a 40 foot deck – with no pain anywhere!

This is a woman who has had back surgery for lower back disc herniations – twice.

Not every patient does this well. Not all chiropractors check and adjust hip, knee, and ankle/foot joints. But all chiropractors who use the Activator Method properly can check all the joints. If you need help finding a decent chiropractor in your area, just let me know. Maybe I can help.

And if you are within striking distance of Everett, WA., then give us a call at (425) 348-5207.
