Safe natural therapy to heal illness and improve well-being
Chiropractic is the best known and most widely used alternative therapy in the US today. In most states, chiropractic physicians are primary-care, first-contact physicians who use a conservative, holistic, and integrative approach to patient care. Chiropractic doctors treat, correct, and prevent neurological, skeletal, and soft tissue dysfunction by employing manipulation of the spine and other joints. They use other conservative means for promoting wellness, including nutritional counseling, physiologic therapeutics (such as light, water, heat, cold, and massage), meridian therapy/acupuncture, trigger point therapy, exercise, lifestyle counseling, botanical medicine, homeopathic remedies, emotional support, and stress management.

As a chiropractic physician, I’ve been […]
About six weeks ago, I was in the Loop just leaving the international Lyme disease conference, briefcase in one hand, shopping bag filled with I-don’t-remember-what in the other, when my foot caught an irregular sidewalk crack and down I went, hard, landing full force on my left shoulder. (Permission to cringe.) I was immediately helped […]
The front-and-center coverage of America’s opioid crisis is certainly affecting the two groups most involved: physicians and people in chronic pain. There are so many rules and restrictions on opioid prescribing that many physicians simply don’t bother any more, referring their chronic pain patients to pain management (PM) specialists. As well-intentioned as PM physicians may […]
