Alternative Route to Health
If you believe that the only road to good health is paved with pills, potions, and surgery, this is not the article for you. If your favorite part of watching TV is making a list of the new drugs you can ask your doctor or pharmacist about, stop reading right here.

If you are looking for a road where the foundation of good health is realized, read on. Educated individuals are disenchanted with the healthcare their parents knew. Simply seeing the medications their aging parents now take is enough to create concern. What they visualize is a future where one symptom is treated with a pill that creates another symptom without ever finding the cause of the first symptom. Add to this the terrifying statistics of deaths due to medical procedures and intelligent people just want something that is real health. They want different. They want BETTER.



Fender Benders and Back Pain
Recently, a patient came in and reported that, for some reason, he "just wasn't feeling right". We discussed his life over the last couple of weeks and figured out, to me, the obvious reason for his back pain flaring up.

It seems this fellow was in a minor "fender bender" a couple weeks previous. He said it really wasn't much of an accident and there was very little damage to the car. He took his car in "just in case" and the only repair necessary was to have the wheels realigned. He added that he felt no physical discomfort at all right after the accident so he figured he was "OK".



Scientist Found About Back Pain
In the last 20 years, the interest the scientific community has in chiropractic has increased as more and more people have chosen chiropractic care to improve their health. According to an extensive research paper entitled, "Chiropractic in the United States, Training, Practice, and Research" compiled using a grant from the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR); patient satisfaction is bringing people to chiropractic care. The AHCPR investigators realized that as soon as research got underway, studies immediately began to document the major roll chiropractic plays in the care of people with back and neck problems. These studies document high levels of patient satisfaction. Others show that satisfaction in chiropractic for back care is much higher in some aspects than satisfaction in conventional medical treatments.


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..."
