Bellingham Police Seek Man Who Broke Into Chiropractor’s Office | Crime | The Bellingham Herald

Metro woman believes her stroke was related to chiropractic manipulation of neck |

Eddie Hansen, the owner of the business, said the burglar got past a sophisticated lock by prying open a back door. Someone unplugged seven computers and a scanner-copier from the walls, snatched a new $2,000 Nikon camera with personal photos on it and rummaged through desks for cash. A time stamp on the video, taken on the second floor, shows a man in a white, long-sleeved sweatshirt or jacket slinking around a corner into a dark hallway at 11:09 p.m. Sunday, March 30. There, he comes face-to-face with the camera lens. Hansen interprets the man’s next move – where he turns around, puts on hands on his head, gets down on one knee and tugs on the back of shirt collar – as the man realizing he’s been caught on tape. He then hustles off. Other footage, Hansen said, showed the same man coming in wearing a thick coat, but he removed that layer once inside the building. Hansen didn’t know the business had been burglarized until around 7 a.m. Monday. No patient information was stolen, he added, because medical records are kept on servers and not the local hard drives.

There is ample evidence and research that shows that the majority of back problems are caused by structural deficiencies. Techniques that fix postural or structural problems are a good bet for long-lasting correction. Choose a chiropractor who has many techniques: they can work with and you will have a lot better chance that they will have one that works best for you. Clinics Is the clinic you are looking for warm and appealing, or something out of the ’70s? There are many additional tools and modalities that chiropractors are licensed to use, other than just their hands. Some clinics use high-tech devices such as Spinal Decompression Tables and Cold Lasers, as well as traditional modalities like toronto chiropractor ultrasound, electrical stimulation and massage devices. All of these tools have shown to increase and speed up healing, resulting in better results. Physical therapy Research has shown that doing strengthening exercises further accelerates and prolongs healing.

I would also suggest you find you a doctor who specializes in weight loss and let him help you with losing some weight. There are a number of good programs out there; you just need to find one that you are comfortable with. Medicare and most medical insurances will pay for most of the above treatment so what are you waiting for? I have been having a lot of neck and shoulder pain. My family doctor said I had a pinched nerve and prescribed some muscle relaxers and pain pills, but nothing has helped. My fingers tingle at times and get numb. My doctor says I need to go to pain management, but I cannot afford that (I have no insurance). Suggestions? The first thing you should do is start icing the neck and shoulder for about 30 minutes every 3 to 4 hours. Take some over-the-counter anti-inflammatory like Aleve gelcaps and get in a hot shower and stretch and exercise the neck and shoulder.

Victoria Advocate | Back Talk: Water works wonders as therapy

But there are effects you cant see. I cant handle several different people talking at once. I cant handle multi-tasking, said Hale. The day before the stroke, Hale had her monthly chiropractic adjustment. When he manipulated my neck to the left side, it didnt crack like it usually did, said Hale. The next day, she went to the emergency room after suffering sudden arm numbness and dizziness. Thats one of the first questions they asked if I had ever seen a chiropractor, said Hale. Dr. Karin Olds, a neurologist at Saint Lukes Neuroscience Institute, says theres a reason for that question. Yes, chiropractic manipulation of the neck can cause a stroke, said Dr. Olds. Dr. Olds didnt treat Hale, but says she has treated others whove had strokes following neck adjustments.

How to choose a chiropractor – Coeur d’Alene Press: Healthy Community

For caregivers, the play of music can be used as a tool for communication with the person theyre caring for, Marain said, but it can also be a source of well-being for the caregiver. There doesnt even necessarily need to be melody, he added, a simple sound can express emotion or gratify someone. Just because we age in life doesnt mean we cant play, he said. A common thread in the three presentations was an emphasis on the personal health of the caregiver. You cant be a good caregiver if you cant take care of yourself, said Cathy Olmstead, a dietician with Newton Medical Center. Olmsteads presentation covered healthy eating and how to make healthy eating easy. As caregivers, you make a big difference in what the people you care for think and do. You are role models for them, Olmstead stated in the presentation. Mindful eating and portion control could all aid a caregiver in healthy consumption, and further set a good example. Olmstead also recommended identifying free time when possible, and engaging in physical activity for 30-minute durations. The third seminar was presented by Colleen Drache, a registered yoga instructor and private practice chiropractor, who showed the audience ways to engage in yoga using only a chair. In the upcoming week, Pollock plans on starting a gardening project with her father. He was a fabulous gardener when he was younger, she said.
