Brian Cushing’s chiropractor’s sympathies

Longmont chiropractor looks back on 50 years

There is some great detail about Cushings training back home in New Jersey this offseason. In a gym with no air conditioning, he did some unconventional work, like bench-pressing a bar draped with additional weight in the form of chains. It becomes more difficult as the bar is raised as the chains come off the floor. A healthy Cushing in obviously a giant ingredient for the Texans. With him, and a healthy defense around him, the unit has the potential to be an excellent one. J.J. Watt , Cushing and Ed Reed , if he has enough left, will give Houston real strength up the middle. Hes heading into the final year of his deal. Weve head no reports of contract extension conversations, but we know the Texans intend to sign him long term.

Sun Jul 28, 2013 10:00am EDT MATAWAN, N.J., July 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Individuals with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis may benefit from regular chiropractic adjustments as an alternative to prescription painkillers. According to Matawan chiropractor Dr. Peter Bufano, regular adjustments, along with heat and cold therapy, help to minimize joint inflammation and reduce swelling, which helps to alleviate pain. In addition to providing immediate pain relief, chiropractic care addresses whole body health, including lifestyle factors like nutrition and exercise. As a chiropractor at Old Bridge Spine, Dr. Bufano says that this holistic approach to arthritis pain management helps patients maintain an active lifestyle. Regular chiropractic treatments can help to alleviate arthritis pain, inflammation and swelling, says Dr. Peter Bufano, a Matawan chiropractor at Old Bridge Spine and Wellness Center . Dr. Bufano is educating patients about the benefits of chiropractic as an alternative to prescription painkillers. “For many years, medical professionals considered arthritis to be just another part of aging,” said Dr. Bufano. “The only way to cope with arthritis was to slow down, take medication and simply accept one’s fate.

Regular Chiropractic Care Offers Hope for Arthritis Patients as Alternative to Medication

Son Derek is a partner in the business; he’s been a chiropractor about 13 years. His oldest daughter, Robin, has a practice in Longmont. She’s been at it about 10 years. Daughter Jill and her husband, Vance, are also chiropractors. Two other daughters, Rhonda and Donna, are a schoolteacher and a nurse, respectively. Longmont’s changed over the years, of course, and while the basics of his practice have not changed, some of the methods have, such as the huge DRX-9000 machine Johnston purchased to treat herniated discs. He’s also incorporated acupuncture and massage into the clinic, and the paperwork required to do his job is ridiculous compared to the old days, he said. But with his official 50-years-as-a-chiropractor mark coming up in September, and his 73rd birthday the following month, he said he doesn’t see stepping aside anytime soon. “I guess if my kids weren’t in it I would probably have thought a lot more about retirement,” Johnston said. “But there’s a lot of dialogue. There’s a lot of dialogue and I love being part of it.” He added that it’s also a joy to be able to come in every day and work alongside one of his children. Recently Johnston’s staff and family threw a surprise party for him to celebrate his 50 years in the profession. He said he had clients turn up who were customers back when he opened the clinic in 1977.

Its a gift they can provide you with. The patient nodded her head, wiped her tears and smiled. Receiving isnt in the chiropractors nature; shes much more comfortable giving. Youre on the road now, Cioffredi said, offering an encouraging pat. It was Kelloggs first occupational therapy appointment, nearly a month after her fall. Shed endured two surgeries, lasting five hours total, to repair three broken bones in her left wrist and two in her right. Her 81-year-old mother, Dorothy Kellogg, made the trek to New Hampshire from Tampa, Fla., to help her drive, eat, dress and bathe. Never in a million years would I have thought at 52 years old my mother would be helping me bathe, Kellogg said during her therapy session. After surgery, she found herself immobilized and in a lot of pain. But her jet packs the mechanical coolers that pushed icy water through tubing inside her casts made it better. I cant always be the giver, and right now I really dont have a choice, Kellogg said.
