Top News & Articles
Baby Talk is Talking Chiropractic
In a recent issue of Baby Talk magazine, an article entitled, "It's Only Natural", discussed a recent gathering of 300 pediatricians in Tucson, Arizona. The speakers included, Stephen Straus, M.D., head of the National Institutes of Health's National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine and Andrew Weil, M.D., director of the program in integrative medicine at the
University of Arizona College of Medicine. The article stated that pediatricians are becoming aware that patients' parents are less and less eager to turn to drugs when treating childrens' illnesses. The pediatricians were looking at options for "times, such as with colic or recurrent ear infection, when standard treatments don't hold all the answers". This is an excerpt on the portion of the article dealing with chiropractic and children's health:

"How does it work?" "Chiropractors trace many of the body's health problems to misalignments of the spinal column, which press on the nerves leading to various parts of the body. But, chiropractors who work with infants don't apply the same force that's used with adults..."



AMA Alternative Health Care
According to an article released by the American Medical Association on November 13, 2000, "a growing number of medical schools, teaching hospitals and physicians are opening clinics that combine conventional medicine and evidence-based alternative medicine." Chiropractic is one of five alternatives that are listed as "the most researched forms of complementary" medicines used in the clinics.


Vertigo Scarier Than Hitchcock
"If I wanted to be this dizzy, I'd go to an amusement park!" To people who have never suffered from vertigo, it doesn't seem like such a big deal. If they could think how their lives would change with their environment continuously whirling about them sickeningly, they would very likely change their opinion. Vertigo is not necessarily painful but it can be debilitating and continuously disorienting. Driving may be impossible and walking across a room may have dangerous consequence, too. Often, people with vertigo need help just getting by.


Back Packs and Back Pain
The amount of weight carried by children in their backpacks deserves serious consideration. Loading the spine risks low back pain not only in adults but in children; the load that children commonly carry is their school backpack. To quantify how much weight children likely carry in their backpacks, researchers from Milan, Italy ascertained the weight of backpacks used by sixth graders at several schools.
