Is it just me, or does it seem like everyone is getting knee replacements lately? Ok maybe not everyone is getting them but I have patients in their late 40’s and early 50’s with total knee replacements.  The procedure does not seem to be reserved for little old ladies anymore.  With the advancement of technology which allows people at younger ages to qualify and the tidal wave of baby boomers do you feel totally...
Hallelujah! Spring has almost sprung and with under a month left of winter, it’s time to start prepping patients on how to shake off the winter pounds.  If your patients are anything like mine, winter is not kind on the waistline.  It starts with Halloween candy, flows into gluttony of Thanksgiving and Christmas, then finishes with a mix of sugar and booze on New Year’s Eve.

There are a handful of clever individuals who are telling students that a vertebra "Doesn't go out of place!" and are attempting to leverage unsuspecting young Chiropractors away from the misalignment model (with novel sounding nonsense) even though spinal research has begun to confirm that misalignment's of the spine occur just as Chiropractors have always known. Spread the news! A new mechanism has emerged from the research...
