Barrington Chiropractor Takes ‘real Health’ Approach | Barrington Courier Review

Dr. Ryan Felde, photographed with his family, has run Felde Chiropractic in Barrington for nearly four years.  |  Provided

Lake Zurich Road in Barrington for nearly four years. His first introduction to chiropractic medicine was at age 16, after he was injured in a jet-ski accident. After traditional medical approaches failed to ease lingering pain, Felde said he sought chiropractic help and became fascinated with the possibilities of drug-free, non-invasive treatments. I got into the type of care I do because I was getting a lot of headaches and concussions, Felde said. In addition to chiropractic considerations, Felde said he also utilities orthopedic and neurological techniques when assessing a patient. What we usually do is try to find the cause of someones problems, he said. The process starts with an examination to determine if a patients ear is directly above the shoulder, which is the optimal position. He then gives patients exercises to fix a problem and leaves it up to him or her to decide how many follow-up visits they will require. A significant number of patients report significant improvements in back and neck pain, Felde said, and some have even reported drops in blood pressure. What we do is a lot of fun, Felde said. We make awesome changes and awesome corrections. Originally from Hoffman Estates, Felde previously ran a private practice in Tennessee before returning to the Chicago area. Felde also runs a chiropractic office in Palatine.

Pro wrestler James Hellwig, known as The Ultimate Warrior, dies at 54 – The Washington Post

Hellwig was a designated good guy who played out feuds with opponents such as Ravishing Rick Rude, who once choked him with a steel bar, and Mark The Undertaker Calaway, who once locked the Ultimate Warrior in a coffin. Mr. Hellwig became such a commercial draw that WWF impresario Vince McMahon crowned him the successor to longtime champion Hogan. The transition came in 1990, during an event dubbed WrestleMania VI before a crowd of more than 60,000 fans in Toronto. Mr. Hellwig defeated Hogan with a move called the gorilla press. Mr. Hellwigs reign was short-lived. He clashed with McMahon over money and merchandising rights. His use of bodybuilding drugs also became problematic at a time when the federal government was cracking down on the distribution of anabolic steroids. In their 2002 book about the WWF, Sex, Lies and Headlocks, journalists Mooneyham and Shaun Assael wrote that behind his back the Boys called him Anabolic Warrior for all the steroids it took to gain him his superhuman frame. After leaving the WWF in 1992, Mr. Hellwig wrestled periodically and started a short-lived wrestling school in Scottsville, Ariz., called Warrior University.

Letter – Retired chiropractor giving childbirth advice, really? | Walla Walla Union-Bulletin

That sounds exactly like something only a person who has never given birth would say. An OB/GYN, midwife, doula or any woman who has ever given birth would have been more qualified to write that piece. While I was initially amused that Mr. Trapani finds himself at all qualified to write about these issues, I now find myself more concerned. My concern comes from reading another article that he wrote about helping babies with colic by feeding them yogurt. Colic normally reaches its peak when babies are six weeks old and often goes away by three to four months. Mr. Trapanis suggestion to feed colicky babies yogurt goes directly against the advice of most medical professionals. Both the CDC and American Pediatric Association recommend babies not receive anything other than breast milk or formula for their first six month of life. While a 2011 study did suggest probiotics might help colic, those babies were given probiotic supplements, not actual yogurt. Newborns have very sensitive stomachs, and dairy is a common allergy, not to mention a choking hazard for a baby who is nowhere near ready for solid food. If the U-B continues to publish advice on pregnancy and pediatric health issues, I feel it would benefit readers and their babies to find someone more qualified.

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

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 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. Some clinics have full physical therapy wings dedicated to stretching and strengthening the muscles in charge of supporting the spine. If these muscles are not strong and balanced, how is your spine going to stay in place? It is extremely important that exercise is incorporated into the treatment for long-lasting results. Multi-disciplinary team Multi-disciplinary treatment clinics are appearing in cities around the country. These clinics employ both doctors of chiropractic and doctors of medicine. When a clinic has multiple types of doctors, there are multiple treatments and an exponential combination of treatments that can be used to heal a patient’s specific condition. Each type of doctor has their unique “box of tools” and diagnostic techniques used to treat patients.
