The science of drug free approaches to health and healing is maturing, and with that coming of age, comes greater acceptance of interventions that were once labeled investigative, or lacking scientific evidence. One of those models, Functional Medicine, still has yet to gain acceptance for payment of services through most insurance companies.

Nutrition-Based Treatments for the Chiropractic Clinic
More than a hundred years ago, D. D. Palmer identified trauma and toxins as two major causes of subluxation. He taught that the nervous system is the communication network between the brain and body, and that anything that interrupted the flow of communication over this network—whether a traumatic injury or exposure to toxic substances—would result in ill health.
Bulging Discs and Trauma: Causality and a Risk Factor
William J. Owens
Bulging discs historically have been called bulges, ruptures, collapsed, pinched nerves, protrusions, slipped discs, prolapsed discs, and a myriad of other names to describe what is a very simple and common finding. In the past, many have reserved the designation of “bulging disc” as an explanation of nonspecific back pain, thereby labeling bulging discs as a category for all disc pathology when creating a plausible diagnosis in the absence of a concrete diagnosis or a full understanding of contemporary nomenclature.

We are asked regularly about what is critical for successful laser therapy treatments. Number one is having a laser with a wavelength, measured in nanometers (nm), which is within the therapeutic window. Wavelengths from approximately 600 nm to 1,200 nm will allow the absorption of photons of energy for the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) through a series of photobiomodulation processes in the mitochondria’s electron transport system.
New patients are the lifeblood of most chiropractic practices. In turn, a patient’s first two visits are of the utmost importance because the evaluation and report of findings occur during these visits. Most doctors render thorough examinations for the techniques they use, and most provide effective reports of findings.
Chiropractors strive to achieve balance. Creating internal balance is a guiding principle of chiropractic. It is how we encourage health and healing. By removing nerve interference, we help to restore and promote harmony within our patients, which establishes an all-important sense of physical strength and wellbeing.
Most everyone has heard the acrostic for FEAR: False Evidence Appealing Real. And today there seems to be a lot of False Evidence Appearing Real. Maybe you’ve experienced some FEAR about the economy, the ICD-10 codes, electronic record keeping, insurance reimbursement, student loan debt or simply the weather.
My first grader is not a fan of school. She says practicing penmanship makes her hand nauseous and math makes her brain “go boom.” How do you explain to a six year old that, despite the nausea and booming, lifelong learning is crucial? Even after she’s earned a degree and launched her future career (as a cupcake maker), her education won’t stop.
There is a lot of talk about big egos these days. Recently, I met with a former client, a K9 medic trainer who trains the top government agencies around the world. She works alongside some of the best veterinarians and medical professionals in the industry.
Every doctor knows that no two patients are alike and that a true “textbook” presentation of a condition is rare. However, auditors and other third-party readers may not automatically understand that and may assume that your diagnosis is for a condition presenting by the “book,” including symptoms, complications, and response to stimuli that are somehow standard from patient to patient.
An Indianapolis chiropractor accused of dealing an unlicensed weight-loss drug has pleaded guilty. Officials announced Tuesday that Pynkerton Newton pleaded guilty to possession and dealing of phentermine, a controlled substance commonly used for weight loss.
