Chiropractor and Nutrition Consultant Dr. Mark McCullough Publishes New Article Discussing The Importance Of Sleep

Hoffman announced that a northern New Jersey chiropractor pleaded guilty today to causing false documentation to be submitted to insurance companies and subsequently receiving more than $89,000 to which he was not entitled. Joseph Salomone, 45, of Nutley, pleaded guilty to second-degree health care claims fraud before Superior Court Judge Mitzy Galis-Menendez in HudsonCounty. The charge was contained in a July 27, 2012state grand jury indictment. Judge Galis-Menendez scheduled sentencing for Dec. 19, 2013. Under the plea agreement, the state will recommend that Salomone be sentenced to four years in state prison. Salomone agreed to pay back over $89,000 in restitution to insurance companies for monies he fraudulently obtained.\ In pleading guilty, Salomone admitted that he directed his office workers to complete periodic re-evaluation forms which purported to list the results of range of motion tests on automobile accident victims. The forms were supposed to be assessments by the chiropractor to see whether the patient needed to have continued (or perhaps different) chiropractic care. An investigation by the Office of the Insurance Fraud Prosecutor determined that Salomone directed his staff to complete the re-evaluation forms using pre-determined information unrelated to an actual assessment of the patient. Accordingly, the patients medical records do not accurately reflect whether these patients actually needed to continue chiropractic care with www.bayviewwellness.com Salomone, or perhaps, needed a change in their treatment plan. “This defendant’s criminal actions not only led to the illegal gain of more than $89,000, but also caused dozens of patients to receive unnecessary medical treatments,” Acting Attorney General Hoffman said. “My office will aggressively investigate and prosecute corrupt chiropractors, especially when they use their patients as unwitting pawns in their unlawful schemes.” “Today’s guilty plea reiterates the message that committing insurance fraud in New Jerseywill lead to a lengthy prison sentence,” Acting Insurance Fraud Prosecutor Ronald Chillemi said. An investigation determined that Salomone directed his office staff to submit the fraudulent documentation to the insurance companies Allstate Insurance Company, High Point Insurance Company, Liberty Mutual Insurance Company, New Jersey Manufacturers Insurance Company and United States Automobile Association as part of the billing process.

Ex-Munising chiropractor guilty of 7 CSC counts

Young said he lied “to avoid anyone seeing me as the jackass that I was,” and nearly teared up over his dishonesty to the coworker, whom he repeatedly praised as an employee. In her closing argument, Bahrman said that Young cloaked his sexual purposes in an “indicia of legitimacy” of chiropractic medicine, telling women who reported no rib pain that he needed to make adjustments that would require that they remove their shirt and bra. She said Young misjudged one of the victims, whom she said he took to be “meek and unassertive,” but who turned out to be a “Mama Grizzly.” “He manipulated as many women as he could to unknowingly participate in his sex life,” Bahrman told the jury. In Rickard’s closing arguments, he said that while Young had made some bad decisions – looking at pornography, making inappropriate comments to his female coworkers – those things weren’t illegal. “Dr. Young’s behavior may have been a little unprofessional,” Rickard said, adding it wasn’t against the law. He said these things were “collateral matters” made to distract the jury and make Young look like “a pervert.” He suggested the fact that several of the victims all used the word “uncomfortable” in describing their experiences with Young was evidence of collusion or “coaching.” He stressed that the contact was incidental and inadvertent, not sexual in nature, and claimed that the HealthQuest ad was a motive for the victims to come forward. A HealthQuest ad run in The Munising News early this year apologized to patients after the December assault and battery incident. Rickard called Young a “bad joke teller” and repeatedly said he had poor taste, but repeated the refrain that those things were “not a crime.” He said reasonable doubt was everywhere.

Save Your Lifestyle with the Right Chiropractor

Ashley Waggoner-Jones is available on the Small Enterprise Journal website. Waggoner-Jones is an expert on pediatric and prenatal chiropractic and the topic of the interview is the benefits of chiropractic care for children and pregnant women. When asked about the benefits of chiropractic versus traditional medical care while pregnant, Waggoner-Jones answered, We work really closely with both OB doctors and midwives during pregnancy, because during that time you want the least amount of chemicals and toxins in your system. This is vital to creating the healthiest environment for the development of your baby. Traditional medicine uses many drugs and medicines for your care, which flood your system with those unwanted chemicals, and sometimes there is a need for traumatic procedures. Chiropractic care is safe, non-invasive and effective for common pregnancy pain and discomfort. Dr. Waggoner-Jones also asserts that chiropractic is very safe for children. She states that while adjusting babies and infants, it only takes about the same amount of pressure for checking a tomato to adjust them. It is very safe and effective for children, and its not putting medicines in their systems that do all have guaranteed risk factors and side effects, says Dr. Waggoner-Jones. “While increasing numbers of people are becoming familiar with chiropractic care, few are aware of the benefits of chiropractic for children and pregnant women, which is why we were compelled to conduct this interview with our expert,” said SEJ . “The full interview is available on our website.” Ashley Chiropractic is also making Dr. Waggoner-Jones available for live interviews http://BayviewWellness.com by request only.

PR for Advisors that Guarantees Results

I was initially going for something I would consider a non- chiropractic issue, sinus pain and was surprised that this ailment could be treated that way. Apparently more things than you can think can be treated with the right chiropractic care and the right chiropractor. Dr. Paul Grillo is definitely the right chiropractor with more than 25 years experience and one of the best judging by return clients who date back to those early days. His passion for chiropractic care started from a young age as his parents sent him to their local chiropractor Dr. Fisher for all childhood aches and pains. 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.

Calgary Chiropractor Concentrates on Concussion Therapy for Sports Injury Patients

Dr. Battershill has also recently added two new pieces of equipment for his concussion treatment program. The first is the Interactive Metronome. He uses this to help patients recover the timing and rhythm between brain and body communication that is often damaged in a traumatic brain injury. He says that this system improves balance and equilibrium and helps to improve cognitive function, specifically motor planning and sequencing. He also uses the Huber Motion Lab for concussion treatments. He says this machine helps reawaken body-to-nervous-system connections that were damaged during an injury to get them functioning normally again. The most important message Dr. Battershill wants concussion patients to get is one of hope. “I know what it’s like to suffer the results of multiple concussions, so I personally know how hard and painful it is. There is hope and treatment so that you can really feel better and function without pain again. Don’t give up.” Dr. Battershill provides chiropractic care in Calgary, including therapy for sports injuries, chronic conditions and weight loss.
