Anatomy of Joint Pain

Craig F. Buhler
Joint pain is one of the most common symptoms people experience. Remedies and treatments are as varied as the sources that promote them. These treatments merely address the symptom of pain without addressing the cause. Pain is seen as something to avoid rather than something to be valued.

What’s in Your Circle of Concern?
[no value]
[no value]
[no value]
Ray Foxworth
<p>One of my favorite books is Stephen Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. To me, it isn’t just another business book; its principles are also useful in managing aspects of our practices. For example, when it comes to concerns about risk management, Covey’s explanation of things that are in our “circle of concern” but perhaps outside our “circle of influence” serves as a perfect model of how we can and should focus our efforts on things we can directly control, and look for ways to insure against things we can’t control.</p>

Building a website isn’t usually at the top of the to-do list when opening a new practice. That comes after tackling more important issues, such as funding and staffing. Once those have been addressed, though, building a high-quality website for your practice should be one of your top priorities.

If you’re like most chiropractors, you probably didn’t enter the profession for the money. You most likely got started because you were passionate about helping people and knew you wanted to make a difference in patients’ lives. So, when you first began your studies, you might not have been thinking much about how you would make this career path profitable.

Have you ever thought about the types and value of patient information your practice creates, maintains, and uses to communicate with third parties when seeking reimbursement? For example, consider that practices have personal contact information, social security numbers, payer ID and group numbers, medical history, treatment information, etc.

As far back as the late nineteenth century, the health science establishment began looking into GABA as a metabolic product derived from plants and microbes. Not too many applications for people, but “nice to know” in the world of botany. Fast forward a few decades to the 1950s and GABA breaks onto the health science stage, identified as an integral part of nervous system activity, mainly acting as the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter.
