Jack Lalanne really is an inspiration. I only found out he was a chiropractor a few years ago, when he was on the cover of a magazine. Here he is hamming it up and speaking truth about nutrition: I saw him receive an award on ESPN a fewRead More >
A patient once ask me, “Why do you care so much about pharmaceutical drugs? They have nothing to do with chiropractic.” It even sounded worse, as his voice sounded less curious, and more condescending. I was a little stunned, because I believe I care primarily as a human,Read More >
Most of you know I love hockey, but the sport of lacrosse has been one of my favorites since my buddy Jared and I joined the St. Vital Salmonbellies at age twelve. So when I read about a chiropractor, Pat “Madman” Maddalena, tearing it up in the NationalRead More >
For as schooled as I have been in chiropractic philosophy, alternative treatments to promote health and prevent disease, and nutrition, I was at a loss when a practice member mentioned Weston A. Price to me a couple of years ago. This article describes Weston A. Price as aRead More >
There are two things I love about this article from the Grand Rapid News, about chiropractor, Dr. Jason Ross, D.C. The first thing is the fact that helped the men’s four man bobsled to a gold medal, and the two woman bobsled team to a bronze at theRead More >
I seem to be a little more concerned for injured Oakland A’s pitcher, Justin Duchscherer, then he is for himself, according to this injury update by the San Jose Mercury News. They’re going to do a procedure where they actually burn the nerves, kill the nerve endings, soRead More >
As much as I hate to admit it, the vast majority of people believe chiropractic is a physical treatment for a physical problem. The textbook example is a person gets a “kink” in their neck from a car accident, or a fall, or sleeping wrong etc..etc. The responseRead More >
Since we are all in the Olympic chiropractic spirit, I thought I would post my second Olympic post about a chiropractor on the same day. It represents the number of wins Team Canada needs to take the gold in men’s hockey. Dr. Scott Swanson let us know onRead More >
Why isn’t this the news story being exposed in a greater fashion? Without getting into the ins and outs of type 2 diabetes being reversible through diet, exercise, and lifestyle, the punishment for the folks at GlaxoSmithKline should be swift and severe. You shouldn’t have to be aRead More >
As my wife and I have recently found out, choosing a qualified health care professional for our family is not an easy task. Luckily, we do not have a difficult choice when choosing a chiropractor, but here are some tips when you and your family are in needRead More >
If you use the video on your site but please link back to Queen Anne Chiropractic Center After writing my last blog post about neuroplasticity and chiropractic, reviewing the documentary, and reading some of the responses I received, I decided to find a small clip of the documentary,Read More >
As my wife finishes her master’s degree in early childhood education, I like to imagine a place where parents in Seattle have access to such a program for their struggling student. I realize there are programs, but most are focused on accepting a disability and not attempting to rewire their pliable brains so it goes away. Permanently.
When I saw this I wondered if the same stimulation could be used via the other senses of touch while using less used cortical stimulus via the cranial nerves. Could smell or aromatherapy used via the olfactory nerve? Could a chiropractic adjustment be used to effect a certain spinal tract and relay the impulse to a weak area of the brain?
Some of these questions are rhetorical as I already know the answer, but it is a shame that only small niche groups of Chiropractors strictly focus on the brain as it relates to neuroplasticity. Yes, many of us are creating this positive response via the adjustment, but there could not be a better time to educate our patients on the subject. Now could be the time to ask the public to send it patients who have struggled with brain injuries, learning difficulties and strokes.
If you were to hand pick a spokesperson for your profession, you could not do better than Jerry Rice. Thanks to Evri.com, I found this brief article about Jerry Rice speaking at a popular chiropractic seminar about the benefit chiropractic adjustments gave throughout his hall of fame career.
I spend the majority of my day speaking to people about Chiropractic, and doing my best to educate them about the effects of an adjustment. There are other components to health that I must preach about, as they are similarly important. Thanks to Chiro.org, I came across aRead More >
