Kan. chiropractor charged with health care fraud
It was when he suffered from a debilitating flu as a boy, being carried into Dr. Fishers office, realising the power of chiropractic care when he was able to walk out. Since that day, he set his goal to become a chiropractor, first getting a bachelor’s in Psychology from Vanderbilt University that seems to have help him expand his curiosity of the human psyche which is one of things he enjoys in his job, connecting and talking to the diverse steady clients he has. Then he earned his Doctorate of Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College alongside certification in Chiropractic Sports Physician from Logan College of Chiropractic. He is also board qualified as a chiropractic rehabilitation doctor. He ended up working with Dr. Fisher, the chiropractor who initially treated him as a kid and Dr. Grillo eventually took over the practice. This all sounds solid and well rounded to me. I didnt know what to expect going to chiropractor, my knowledge was limited, mostly coming from TV having seen people get their necks twisted in one rapid motion to one side producing a crack. That looked terrifying but it was on TV so surely it couldnt be that accurate, I told myself. The session started with me laying on my front, exactly like you do on a massage table, Dr.

The chiropractic war with reality rages on…
chiropractor charged with health care fraud Updated 4:48pm, Friday, October 18, 2013 Font Page 1 of 1 WICHITA, Kan. (AP) A Wichita chiropractor has been charged with carrying out a $1.3 million health care fraud scheme. The U.S. attorney’s office says 32-year-old Jeffrey D. Fenn , of Wichita, surrendered his license Friday, the same day a federal indictment was unsealed. The 26-count indictment alleges that Fenn submitted false claims to Medicare and other health care benefit providers for services that were medically unnecessary or were never performed. Fenn is also accused of evading taxes by overstating his business deductions by $367,000 in 2011. He’s also charged with identity theft and 16 counts of money laundering. Online court records did not show an attorney for Fenn on Friday, and he does not have a listed phone number.

System Restore – Your Health
Sit and peck requires a stationary posture but we are segmented creatures and if we hold our segments from moving after a very short while they begin to stiffen up as the muscles with their attachments of tendons and fascia physiologically shrink. When held stationary we quickly shrink and twist up into a posture showing stress, but still we peck on, dont we? For the modern day sit and peck person it is advised that every ten minutes our bodies should stand up and move about in such a manner that we get a good push from the muscles of our core, those that attach to or from our pelvis. Do some squats. Again, standing up and using your strength of the pelvis core muscles every ten minutes is advised whenever you are in an ongoing sitting position. Set the timer on your computer for this activity. Then think about the hours and hours that most sit and peck people put in without a stand up break. And when you see them wearing their prescribed elbow and wrist bands know they have overtaxed their individual stress potentials through neglect. Then they have gone to the wrong Doctor for the pain. He has prescribed additional restricted motion through the straps and bands or tape and further shrinking of the holding muscles and fascia ensues. And to make matters worse he drugs you too. So now being drugged, hunched over, and strapped in and shrinking you may return to your previous habits, including the neglect one and continue on getting more unhealthy and stressed as you bend down over your e-device. Now look up chiropractic on your device. Look at the Wikipedia definition. Know what chiropractic is through a fact; that is the beauty of the internet. Learn how the chiropractor is trained and uniquely qualified to remobilize a kinked up bound up subluxated structure like the ogle-boggle body you have neglected. Hook up the anatomy linking the kinking to the wrist, back and pelvis structures. Get this data into your brains memory. Go to the chiropractor and get the subluxations, the kinks, mobilized back to a pre existing time when your health was stronger in place. Lets say we think of our failing, slow moving and shut down bodies as being a complex set of intertwining systems, like your e-devices. Then lets go back to when you may have thought of your chiropractor and the subluxation as like that nerd of the 70s who might have mentioned system reset and all of us at that time would then snuffle and snort and guffaw at the weird dude. Well the fact is that weird chiropractic dude is tomorrows wizard of the health industry. For unlike any other procedure, he can apply science, art and philosophy to reset your neuromusculoskeletal systems to a prior setting. Like it or not, the chiropractic adjustment is the only available method of system reset which can give you a chance to operate your body segments freely again; even as you sit and peck while ogle-boggling on the Net.

Dunedin Chiropractor Offers Antioxidant Scanning as Part of Comprehensive Wellness Plan
The report in fact DOES confirm that the imaging showed a fracture. Without getting too heavily into technicalities, the congenital condition the baby had makes it harder to exclude a hangmans fracture than usual, as the piece of bone which fractures is replaced by cartilage and immature bone which doesnt image well. Nevertheless, Paragraph 33 of the report notes that initial radiology opinion was that (redacted) had suffered a bilateral fracture of the posterior arch of the axis vertebra. These initial reports and even what type of scan it was are never referred to again. A repeat CT done a couple of months down the track, and quoted at length in Paragraph 33 was reported as showing the spondylolysis but no obvious fracture. Another CT done nearly six months after the child first went to hospital seems damning. The report of the CT concludes: Evidence of some healing involving the left C2 pedicle defect suggesting a likely previous underlying trauma/fracture superimposed on a developmental spondylolysis So in fact, the scenario appears to be that the injury was initially diagnosed as a bilateral fracture, which was hard to see on the next scan, but clearly evident as an asymmetrical area of new bone formation with the appearance of a healing fracture. In anticipation of indignant protests in the comments section, I would hasten to add that normal development of a childs spine is very hard to mistake for a healing fracture if you have an experienced eye. Monash Medical Centre is a major teaching and research hospital with no shortage of highly skilled radiologists. I am intrigued to know what the scan was that the child initially had.

Chesapeake Chiropractor Switches to Digital Records for Enhanced Patient Care
“Electronic health records offer a number of important advantages to our patients, including increased safety, effectiveness, efficiency and communication,” said Santjer. The new electronic health records will provide accurate, up-to-date and complete information on patients at all points of their care. Additionally, Dr. Santjer will be able to efficiently coordinate with a patient’s primary care physician, should a patient request that. “Electronic records improve collaboration, which is key to patient health,” said Dr. Santjer. “We are always happy to coordinate with a patient’s primary care provider, especially for the treatment of serious injuries. The new records will make it easier to work with these providers and reduce the risk for medical errors through legible, complete documentation.” For example, the electronic health records, also known as EHRs, will track patient information as well as copies of digital X-rays, test results, and bayview chiropractic treatment plans. “The electronic health record is a full patient profile that is securely stored and instantly accessible to our chiropractic team,” said Dr. Santjer.

Raveling and his team claim to have solved that challenge through the adoption of the Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner, which according to the device’s manufacturer is the first non-invasive technology capable of measuring carotenoid antioxidant levels in the tissues of living beings. “The patient places his hand on the machine, and a harmless laser reads the antioxidant levels right through the skin, providing us with the patient’s Skin Carotenoid Score,” says Dr. Raveling. Based on these numbers, the chiropractor is able to recommend adjustments to the patient’s diet, supplementation routine and lifestyle to help improve antioxidant levels. These recommendations take the form of a detailed nutritional assessment and personalized wellness plan, presenting the patient with an easy-to-understand strategy toward the goal of improved health. Dr. Raveling emphasizes that the technology behind the Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner is the result of eight years of scientific research and development by physicists and doctors, with a Nobel Prize awarded for the spectroscopy technique the machine employs. “The scan is safe, easy, and remarkably quick,” he adds, noting that patients can fit the procedure into to their lunch break or on the way to or from work. The clinic currently offers its antioxidant screening service every Friday; its office hours on that day extend from 8 am to 12 pm and 2 pm to 6 pm. In addition to antioxidant screening, Raveling Chiropractic Center provides chiropractic adjustment, massage therapy, physical therapy and rehabilitation, weight loss and pain management services for the Dunedin area.
