Me And My Operation: An End To The Misery Of Bent And Painful Toes

Toronto Chiropodist Use Social Media To Reach Out To Patients

High heels and tight-fitting shoes can exacerbate the problem - 90 per cent of people with hammer toes are women. Any of the toes can develop into a hammer toe, but it's typically the second one. With a hammer toe, the knuckle (where the toe bends) starts to rub on the top of the shoe, causing pain and inflammation. Calluses can also form where the tip of the toe touches the ground, and on the sole of the foot - this is because the patient walks on the end of the long bone in the foot, instead of on the cushioning fat pads on the ball of the foot. Enlarge Widespread problem: Around 3 million Britons have hammer toes, which are exacerbated by high heels and tight-fitting shoes The rubbing on the knuckle causes more inflammation, and the toe joint can eventually become scarred and fixed chiropractor in this V shape - the tendons connecting muscle to bone become permanently contracted and cannot move back to their natural position. Eventually hammer toes can cause constant pain, meaning patients hobble along and avoid walking any distance. They may also have to give up sport. One option is surgery to loosen a tendon and remove problematic cartilage and excess bone, and then fuse the toe in a straight position with a metal wire, which holds the toe in place for up to six weeks while it heals. But this means leaving a wire sticking out around half a centimetre out of the skin at the toe, which can get bumped, causing pain and inflammation, and risking infection.

Stuck in the middle: Tony Wisson said that all women were 'dirty' and branded the 29-year-old foot care assistant, referred to as JS, a 'smutty girl'. The locum podiatrist showed JS a video of a teenager performing a sexual act, before producing a photograph of a woman in a clothes shop changing room. Asked how he got the image, he replied: 'I can go wherever I like.' In an effort to change the subject, JS mentioned that she had previously lived near an army barracks and could see the soldiers practising their drills. Wisson replied: 'I bet you loved that, all those squaddies, I bet you used to to rub up against the window.' The chiropodist then began talking about an 11-year-old girl, who he described as 'well developed' before claiming he had 'taken it upon himself to teach the girl about the facts of life'. Only four months later, in August 2009, he invited a woman, known as Mrs A, to a clinic in Perry Barr, Birmingham when it was empty. The married patient said he then asked her to remove her clothes and massaged her legs and thighs near her bottom, telling her he 'just wanted to meet a nice woman'. New death at poisoning hospital as police quiz male nurse amid fears FOURTH patient has become victim Mrs A managed to phone her husband and asked him to pick her up immediately. Wisson told both women that he was a former army man who saw things in 'black and white'. Misconduct: Wisson made the suggestive comments and showed pornography to a female assistant on his first day of work at The Verwood Surgery, in Verwood, Dorset Wisson, of Redditch, Worcestershire, was struck off the register by the Health Professional Council after being found guilty of misconduct. 'She was clearly a vulnerable woman and has been left ashamed, embarrassed and feels dirty after what you did to her' Panel chairman Ian Cookall said that he failed to care for his patients, was completely inappropriate and that his actions were sexually motivated. 'The comments you made to JS were derogatory and disparaging and the video that you showed to her showing a teenager performing oral sex was demonstrably offensive to her. 'Your actions fell short of what was expected in your personal and professional conduct,' he added.

Chiropodist who swore at patient guilty of misconduct

Researchers at Highgate Cemetery claim to have uncovered the grave of Abraham Lincolns here. chiropodist. Dr Issachar Zacharie was said to be the most favoured family visitor at the White House, valued by the former president not only for his skills but also as a sounding board for the opinions of the Jewish community in America. The discovery was made as researchers drew up a new map for visitors plotting the last resting places of the likes of Karl Marx, TV presenter Jeremy Beadle and author Douglas Adams. Dr Ian Dungavell, chief executive of Highgate Cemetery, said: Zacharies connection with Lincoln is fascinating, and especially topical just now. Were always keen to celebrate the exceptional achievements of people buried here at Highgate Cemetery. People know us for Karl Marx, but this is a place to reflect on all those who have gone before us, famous or not. Dr Zacharie died while living at an address in Mayfair and was credited as being founder of the Masonic Order of the Secret Monitor. He is buried in the East Cemetery near a piano memorial, commemorating classical pianist William Thornton. The map has been produced to coincide with the introduction of new entree prices for visitors from tomorrow (March 1). Dr Dungavell added: We dont expect to see Daniel Day-Lewis round here, but you never know.

Chiropodist experience shows the way to a professional 'nothing' service

A chiropodist who kicked a police officer and swore at an 81-year-old patient was found guilty of professional misconduct today. Christine Johnson, aged 71 at the time, told the older woman youre not leaving my f****** clinic when she suggested arranging her appointment for another day. A conduct and competence committee of the Health Professions Council (HPC) heard Johnsons attitude bayviewwellness changed during the appointment in Rhyl, North Wales, in March last year. She became abusive after a young man put his head around the door of the room to talk about a washing machine, the hearing in Cardiff was told. Chairman Ian Crookhall said she used extremely inappropriate and abusive language, which upset her (the patient). She said, I dont care about your f****** car and I dont care if you get a f****** ticket, told her she could not leave because the clinic door was locked and said I dont care about your f****** grandson when the woman said she should leave to pick up her grandson. Mr Crookhall said there was no misconduct before Johnsons attitude changed towards the woman, who was having her first appointment with the chiropodist. She also showed the woman a tray full of nail clippings, threw them in the bin and put the tray under her feet without cleaning it, but this did not amount to misconduct, the panel ruled. It found her fitness to practise was impaired and gave Johnson, who was not at the hearing, a three-year caution order. She was also cautioned for another occasion when police were called to a domestic incident at her home in June last year after she had been out drinking. As she was being arrested she was verbally abusive and kicked an officer in the groin.

Grave of Lincoln?s chiropodist discovered at Highgate Cemetery

But do not read on if you do not like the subject of feet! I have just got back from a trip to the chiropodist. Having for a number of months self-treated unsuccessfully what I thought was a verruca, I decided it was time to get some professional advice. The chiropodist did a fact-find on me my medical background, did the verruca hurt or cause me any problems? before carrying out a thorough examination of my feet (even the one without said complaint). He confirmed it was a verruca and explained how notoriously difficult verrucas are to treat, adding that, depending on ones age, they can take literally years to eradicate. But, he said, a lot of people do not get anywhere with the treatments available at the local pharmacy. In fact, acid was the best treatment but he was not going to prescribe that for me. I was reassured, better informed and came away confident that do nothing was a reasonable course of action. I had taken advice from a professional who knew what he was talking about and he had not tried to sell me anything. His advice was simply do nothing. Did he bill me?

Acupuncture Little Better Than "sham" For Migraine

In the third month after treatment, the "real" acupuncture groups were doing slightly better, while the sham group held steady at around three headache days. But the advantage was "clinically minor," according to Li's team, who did not respond to requests for comment. 'SHAM' MAY HAVE REAL EFFECTS So does that mean acupuncture's benefits are all in your head? No, according to Dr. Albrecht Molsberger, of Ruhr University Bochum in Germany, who wrote an editorial published with the study. The problem, he told Reuters Health by email, is that sham acupuncture is not a true placebo -- and may have real physiological effects. According to traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture eases pain by stimulating certain points on the skin believed to affect the flow of energy, or "qi" (pronounced "chee"), through the body. But some modern research suggests that the needle stimulation triggers the release of pain- and inflammation-fighting chemicals in the body, even if it doesn't strictly follow traditional principles. "The sham acupuncture effect is so strong and long lasting, that this suggests that other factors, like the stimulation of cytokines or endorphins, are important too," Molsberger said. And even though real acupuncture has not clearly beaten the sham version, it has outperformed standard migraine treatments in some studies. A recent research review looked at four clinical trials that tested acupuncture against medications proven to prevent migraine attacks.

Qi Integrated Introduces Vancouver Acupuncture Performed by Trained and Experienced Doctors

Those studies were also small and didn't compare acupuncture to other treatment options. "What's more important for the patient is does it work in practice and that is the question we were asking," MacPherson said. For their study, he and his colleagues recruited 755 people with moderate or severe depression. The researchers split participants into three groups: 302 were randomly assigned to receive 12 weekly acupuncture sessions, another 302 received weekly counseling sessions and 151 received usual care only. About 70 percent of people had taken antidepressants in the three months before the study and about half reported taking pain medications. People did not have to stop taking their medicine to participate in the study. At the outset, participants had an average depression score of 16 on a scale from 0 to 27, with higher scores symbolizing more severe depression. A 16 is considered moderately severe depression. After three months, people assigned to the acupuncture group had an average score of about 9 - on the higher end of the mild depression category.

Laser Acupuncture Helping Frustrated Athletes and Chronic Pain Sufferers Find Long-Lasting Relief in Boise

E-mail Address Send to a Friend Eagle, ID (PRWEB) October 14, 2013 An acupuncturist in Boise, Idaho is now using laser acupuncture to help frustrated and injured athletes as well as chronic pain sufferers find long-lasting or even permanent pain relief from their condition. The low-level laser is used to stimulate traditional Chinese acupuncture points that would normally be needled with an acupuncture needle. "Patients have really been excited about the laser acupuncture therapy", says Tony Burris, L.Ac., the Boise-area acupuncturist employing the unusual therapy. "I use it is an adjunct to my traditional needle therapy or to stimulate points that might be uncomfortable for a patient with needle insertion. For something so modern and high tech it has fit in seamlessly with with and ancient and traditonal art like acupuncture." Laser acupuncture employs the use of low-level or "cold" lasers at precise locations. The beam stimulates acupuncture points for 10-15 seconds and produces no tissue damage, physical discomfort or heat sensation. Unlike a needle insertion, there is no risk of an infection. This kind of therapy is easily applicable to children. Burris' is the owner of Eagle Acupuncture and his patients include members of the San Diego Chargers, Washington Redskins, Denver Broncos, Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions. Tony also treats members of the Seattle Mariners, Olympic medalists, mixed martial artists and NCAA competitors. He is also the Team Acupuncturist for the Treasure Valley Roller Girls and has several Hollywood celebs as his clients.

Acupuncture as good as counseling for depression: study

Getting poked could perk you up. Acupuncture may be a viable treatment for depression, suggests a new British study. Researchers found depression patients who received acupuncture saw similar mental health improvements as those who had counselingand felt better after 3 months than patients who stuck to their regular antidepressant regimen. (Though you should talk to your doc before making any changes to your treatment.) So whats going on? The researchers arent quite sure, but in the past, acupuncture has been shown to decrease pain and boost the production of endorphins, or chemical compounds that make us feel good, says Florida-based patient educator Steven Masley, M.D. And its possible theres a placebo effect, but this study didnt find a link between patients expectations and added benefits to treatment. Exactly how the procedure works may be unclear, but the benefits stick out. Discover 4 more ways acupuncture can fix your health problems .

What is the difference between a Chiropodist and a Podiatrist?

Add to Sign in to YouTube Sign in with your Google Account (YouTube, Google+, Gmail, Orkut, Picasa, or Chrome) to add marketingtodoctors's video to your playlist. I presume you are seeking the term Chiropodist vs Podiatrist not to see them battling it out in the ring, but to discover the distinction, if any kind of, between both careers. Once upon a time in an English dictionary, if you searched for the word Podiatrist, it would claim "a.m. (American for) Chiropodist", however essentially today, on a professional degree, there is no distinction between both. In the UK the term chiropody has represented for a lengthy time to describe a practitioner that takes care of all manner of foot health and wellness issues and it is just relatively just recently, given that 1993, that the term Podiatric doctor was used as the globally acknowledged name for a medically qualified professional in foot wellness. You might have argued 20 years ago that a Chiropodist works on exterior foot (and hand) wellness complications such as corns, calluses and thickened nails, whereas a Podiatric doctor specialises in interior functions of the decrease limb such as biomechanical evaluations, gait study and prescribed of orthotics. Nevertheless, all expert training Of Chiropodist's and Podiatrists in the UK today basically combine them names for specifically the exact same training. It is mostly because of public perception that the two terms are still made use of. Let's take a glimpse at the certifications and professional gets. BSc(Podiatry) - This signifies that the Chiropodist/Podiatrist has actually completed a complete training course in Podiatry at an accepted organization. MChS or FChS - This suggests that the Chiropodist/Podiatrist is a member or other of The of Chiropodists and Podiatrists.

The Back Pain Most Surgeons Won't Find

The sacroliac, <a href=massage therapy clinic north york or SI, joint, bears and transfers weight and movement from your upper body to your legs.' style='float:left;padding:5px' /> further confusing the diagnosis of the suffering patient. As a result, many people progress through the usual stages of back pain treatment, from physical therapy and chiropractic treatment to injections, laser procedures and finally to surgery, without ever addressing the true source of the pain. One study found that among "failed" spinal fusion patients -- people who had their lumbar vertebrae fused and were still in pain afterward -- the SI joint was the real culprit in more than half the cases. When you know to look at the SI joint, finding out whether it's the source of the pain is usually pretty easy. If an injection of the local anesthetic Lidocaine into the joint produces temporary pain relief, then that's likely where the problem resides. If so, all the treatments previously misdirected at the spine -- chiropractic, physical therapy and medication -- can be aimed at the proper target. If those treatments don't work, the next step is often surgery. Up until recently, that meant a major open fusion procedure, followed by several months of recovery. However, a new, minimally invasive procedure is now available that uses small titanium implants to stabilize the joint. The tiny incisions mean patients recover much more quickly. The procedure is being done regularly here at UCLA and at other top spine centers around the country. It worked for Tom -- he's living pain-free and is back in control of his life. And there are millions more Toms out there living with chronic back pain who could benefit from knowing more about where that pain may be really coming from and how it can be dealt with effectively.

Oh, what chiropractor a relief: Couple finds injections help back pain

The research, which was presented Thursday at the North American Spine Society's annual meeting here, analyzed data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey involving 6,796 people. It found that in people who were normal weight, defined as a body mass index of 20 to 25, the risk of low back pain was 2.9%. BMI is the relationship between a person's height and weight. A person who is 5 feet 10 inches and 174 pounds has a BMI of 25. In those who were overweight, which is a BMI of 26 to 30, low back pain risk was 5.2%. In the obese, a BMI of 31 to 35, the risk grew to 7.7%. And in the morbidly obese, a BMI of 36 or more, the risk was 11.6% A person who is 5 feet 10 inches and 251 pounds has a BMI of 36. "We showed both increased BMI and inactivity were independent risks of low back pain," said lead author Matthew Smuck, a physician and associate professor of orthopedic surgery at Stanford University Medical Center. "Perhaps the best news out of this study is that big gains can be made by making some incredibly modest changes in activity." The researchers found different ways to achieve the improvements: The typical overweight person increasing their amount of moderate activity such as brisk walking, riding a bike or general gardening by less than 20 minutes a day can reduce back pain risk by 32%. For those with BMIs of 36 or more, the average duration of time spent during a bout of moderate activity was 1.3 minutes. However, by increasing that time by one minute, the risk of back pain dropped 38%. For years, anecdotal evidence has led spine specialists to tell overweight people to lose weight and exercise.

Your Back Pain (And What It's Trying to Tell You)

Back pain is called chronic if it lasts for more than three months. While most back pain goes away on its own, it may take awhile. Over-the-counter pain relievers and resting can help. But when back pain persists and starts interfering with how you live your life, its time to see a specialist. Thats exactly what Dominick and Frances Mazza of Tinley Park did when spinal stenosis (a narrowing of the open spaces in the spine) limited their everyday activities. For the last 10 years, the Mazzas have received pain injections from Dr. Robinson at his Harvey office. In most cases, a patient can resume full activities the next day, and pain relief lasts for months. The particular method of receiving the injections have made all the difference for the Mazzas this past decade and they thank Dr. Robinson for giving them a chance to live life fully again. Dr. Robinson is a very caring person, said Dominick, an avid golfer. Since Ive been seeing him, I havent been in a wheelchair.

Exercise can help low back pain, obesity can hurt, study shows

Opioids are only recommended for patients with "severe, disabling pain" that doesn't get better with over-the-counter medicines - and their risks, such as for abuse and addiction, should be weighed against potential benefits. For the new study, Dr. Bruce Landon from the Harvard Medical School in Boston and his colleagues tracked nationally-representative data on outpatient visits for back and neck pain collected between 1999 and 2010. The researchers had information on about 24,000 visits, which represented a total of 440 million appointments across the U.S. During that span, they found the proportion of patients prescribed Tylenol and NSAIDs dropped from 37 percent to 25 percent. At the same time, the proportion given narcotics rose from 19 percent to 29 percent. About 11 percent of people with back pain had a CT or MRI scan in 2009 and 2010, compared to seven percent in 1999 and 2000. Finally, although the rate of referrals to physical therapy held steady during the study period, the proportion of patients referred to another doctor - likely for surgery or other treatments - doubled from seven to 14 percent, the researchers reported Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine. "Physicians want to offer patients treatments that are going to work sooner and patients are demanding them and sometimes it's just easier to order the MRI or order the referral," Landon said. But, he added, "They often lead to things that are unnecessary and expensive and maybe not better in the long run and maybe even worse," such as surgery or injections that haven't proven wellness centre to be effective. According to the National Institutes of Health, eight out of ten people have back pain at some point in their lives. One of the difficulties of treating back pain, Cohen said, is that there are so many possible causes - including disc, joint and nerve problems. He said the strongest evidence supports treating the pain with exercise, including stretching and some aerobic activity.

Back pain treatment often not in line with guidelines

But it's just as true. You can read a great deal standing behind someone, reading victory or defeat, success and failure, pride or shame and every degree of self-esteem. More hidden are the stresses that shape the back. On the day that you feel that first twinge of back pain, an entire personal history has already unfolded. Can we use that history to treat lower back pain? The factors to consider are as varied as each person is, but the most salient include: Physical stress to the lower back Sedentary jobs Sudden changes in physical routine Bad sleep Coping mechanisms, how you deal with stress Aging Old traumas, such as car accidents and sports injuries Unknown predispositions That's a lot to consider. As you can see, saying "My back went out" or "I must have hurt my back" falls short of an adequate explanation. Everything on the list needs to be considered as a contributing factor. It's important to distinguish between acute pain and chronic pain. Acute pain is intense and lasts from a few days to several weeks. Acute back pain is generally due to sprains or strains and usually gets better in a few weeks. Chronic pain lasts longer than three months. Chronic back pain is more complicated in terms of its causes and its treatment. We can start with a very general picture. Medicine knows a lot already about this chronic problem.

Mnk-795 For Acute Pain Management: An Interview With Dr Lynn Webster

Ive never seen that with any abuse deterrent formulation. How was massage therapy north york this property created? The mechanism for this property is not known but the formulation has an early-release form, and then a delayed release of the oxycodone-acetaminophen, and probably when its manipulated and crushed, or ground in a coffee grinder, it blends the early release with the extended release, so some of that early release is delayed. Its not well known, but thats what we speculate. What further research is needed to try to understand what is causing this abuse-deterrent property? Im not sure that it is important to understand the mechanism. As a clinician we want safer medications. Formulations that can be manipulated can be harmful to patients and society. Our research has been demonstrated that when the formulation is manipulated its not liked as well as when taken whole thats the key point. The whole purpose of developing abuse deterrents of extended-release formulations is to make them more difficult to manipulate or less appealing to someone who wants to convert an extended-release into a rapid-onset type of medication. Based upon our studies, that will be difficult to do. .

The body is a complex organism which works in unison with mind and body. Alcohol Though alcohol often brings on sleep, it is a light sleep for the most part and you never get to REM sleep. Rem sleep is important for a healthy body. When you awake without REM sleep your body may be crying out in pain for more sleep. Quit smoking MedMD reports that, Some people find temporary relief from stress and pain with a quick smoke . The irony is that smoking may actually contribute to pain in the long run. It slows healing, worsens circulation, and increases the risk of degenerative disc problems, a cause of low back pain. If you need an incentive to quit, pain relief just may be it. Ask your doctor about programs and medicines to kick the habit. Keep healthy and strong Eat a well-balanced diet with plenty of whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and protein. A proper diet aids in leveling blood sugar levels, digestion, weight, and reduces the risk of such diseases as diabetes and heart disease. Pain Journal A pain journal is an excellent way to keep track of your chronic pain and help the doctor understand what you are going through.

Top Las Vegas Pain Management Clinics, Innovative Pain Care, Now Offering Over Ten Effective Treatments for Sacroiliac Joint Pain

"We always, always send people with chronic pain to a specialist. To not do that and just appoint a specialist is just inconceivable to me." Even then, the health system is short on pain specialists. Pamela Gray, MD, an internist and rheumatologist by training, was told when she started working at the VA hospital in Hampton, Va., in 2008 that she would be the pain management specialist. Gray left her private practice to work for the VA but was later fired when she tried to speak out about her concerns over opioid prescribing. A nurse practitioner holds the pain management specialist title for the facility in Wilmington, Del., according to Claudia Bahorik, DO, who along with Gray testified at Thursday's hearing. With or without the specialists, patients are getting multiple pain medications. Heather McDonald, widow of VA patient Scott McDonald, reported that her late husband was seeing multiple providers who each prescribed a different medication before his overdose in 2012. "Why is there not continuity between doctors at the VA?" McDonald told the lawmakers. "Nobody was going through his records to say 'This doctor already gave you this, so I'm not going to go do this.'" Raul Ruiz, MD (D-Calif.) , an emergency room physician and health subcommittee member, said they had a policy at the Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif., where he used to work, to review drug interactions for every prescription. Similar care coordination efforts should be installed if they don't already exist, he said. "I think these are approaches and policies that the VA may have," Ruiz said. "The other thing is to make sure we look at pain in a holistic manner, to look at the complexity of pain not only on the science but also the effects of the interactions with family, their ability to function, their mental health." "These are questions that we will be asking the VA and we'll be looking thoroughly into," he added.

John Johnson, 87, had been living in the Honeywood House Nursing Home in Rowhook for nearly two years, having suffered with Alzheimers disease for some time. He opened up his practice in early 1960 in the big white house on the corner of Wallorton Gardens, East Sheen, initially assisted by his mother, Ada Johnson, before his wife June took over the receptionist role in 1973. Mr Johnson was popular with patients because of his excellent time keeping and dry sense of humour and a comical fish tank in the waiting room which contained a model foot bone and was labelled 2 Piranhas - Beware! proved a great source of conversation. His daughter Sue Wiltshire said: He was very well known in the area and popular. His patients loved him. Mr Johnson was a proud pioneer in minor foot surgery and was one of the earliest trained podiatrists of his generation and patients were disappointed when the practice closed in 2002. Family described him as a much-loved husband of 61 years to June, father and father-in-law to Susan and Bob, Sally and Pat, Paul and Sandy, and grandpa to Jade, Anna, Catherine, Joanna, Matthew, Annabel, Alex and Jacob. The funeral service and cremation was held at Guildford Crematorium on Friday, June 14.

Researchers at Highgate Cemetery claim to have uncovered the grave of Abraham Lincolns chiropodist. Dr Issachar Zacharie was said to be the most favoured family visitor at the White House, valued by the former president not only for his skills but also as a sounding board for the opinions of the Jewish community in America. The discovery was made as researchers drew up a new map for visitors plotting the last resting places of the likes of Karl Marx, TV presenter Jeremy Beadle and author Douglas Adams. Dr Ian Dungavell, chief executive of Highgate Cemetery, said: Zacharies connection with Lincoln is fascinating, and especially topical just now. Were always keen to celebrate the exceptional achievements of people buried here at Highgate Cemetery. People know us for Karl Marx, but this is a place to reflect on all those who have gone before us, famous or not. Dr Zacharie died while living at an address in Mayfair and was credited as being founder of the Masonic Order of the Secret Monitor. He is buried in the East Cemetery near a piano memorial, commemorating classical pianist William Thornton. The map has been produced to coincide with the introduction of new entree prices for visitors from tomorrow (March 1). Dr Dungavell added: We dont expect to see Daniel Day-Lewis round here, but you never know.

Shuropody, which sells foot-care products as well as treating people with painful foot conditions, claims to be the second largest provider of foot-care in the UK, behind only the NHS. Comments Foot-care brand Shuropody has raised 3m from the Business Growth Fund, the 2.5bn investment firm owned by Britains biggest banks. Founded by entrepreneur Frank Duffy in 2007, the Coventry-based company is aiming to double its annual sales to 30m over the next three years. Mr Duffy said the business, which sells foot-care products as well as treating people with painful foot conditions, is the second largest provider of foot-care in the UK, behind only the NHS. Following the purchase of 43 Scholl stores from Alliance Boots in July 2008, the company has expanded to 63 stores and concessions. However, Mr Duffy said Shuropodys latest expansion will be focused on concessions in garden centres and clinics located close to out-of-town supermarkets because of high rent and business rates on the high street.

Chiropractor in Stamford CT Shows How To Shovel Snow Without Strain

Chiropractor in Stamford CT, Chiropractors in CT ''Another few millimetres and there would have been a devastating spinal cord injury and the baby would have either died or had severe neurological impairment with quadriplegia,'' he said. Pappas complained to the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency, which referred the case to the Chiropractic Board. Three weeks ago, he received a letter from AHPRA saying the case had been closed after the chiropractor committed to completing further education. Pappas said he was concerned the decision was an endorsement of chiropractic treatment for infants when there was no scientific evidence to support it. ''I think they have put the chiropractor's interests before the interests of the public,'' Dr Pappas said. ''[Treating infants] is inappropriate and it carries a very small but real risk of causing damage, and in some cases, devastating damage.'' A review published in the Pediatrics journal in 2007 also found serious adverse events relating to spinal manipulations in children, including a brain haemorrhage and paraplegia. However, the president of the Chiropractors' Association of Australia, Laurie Tassell, says chiropractic treatment is as safe for children as it is for adults, and chiropractors should be able to treat patients in hospital, if authorised. "Chiropractic care can be remarkably gentle," he said. "Being a five-year, university-trained spinal health expert, a chiropractor will modify their adjustment techniques to suit the age and spine of each individual child." President of the Australian Medical Association Steve Hambleton said the board needed to either produce evidence supporting chiropractic treatments for children or rule out paediatric care. ''The AMA is not aware of any evidence that chiropractic manipulative treatment of infants and children offers any benefit at all,'' he said. Fairfax Media has seen Facebook conversations in which chiropractors discuss methods of sneaking into hospitals. Images, obtained by blogger Reasonable Hank, include one of a baby being adjusted in a hospital. Ad Feedback AMA NSW head Brian Owler said it was "absolutely outrageous" for chiropractors to treat patients in hospital without permission.

Chiropractor breaks baby's neck

However, pushing the snow with a push shovel lessens the strain on the neck and lower back. If the snow is too deep, use a snow blower to clear your path. Chiropractor in Stamford CT always suggest a few tried and true procedures for snow-shoveling in order to avoid hurting your neck, shoulders and back: - Only shovel loose snow, never hard-packed or partially frozen snow. Hard-packed snow, or frozen snow is heavy. Breaking it loose, then lifting a heavy, loaded shovel will increase the strain to your body and increase the likelihood of hurting your neck, shoulder and back muscles. - Shovel the snow when there is only a small amount of snow on the ground, not more than 2-4 inches. This ensures that it will be looser and lighter. You may have to shovel more often during a snowstorm, but this makes for much less strain on your neck and back than lifting heavy snow. - Push the snow to the side of the walkway or driveway, rather than shoveling and piling. - Take breaks often to rest your muscles.

Acupuncture Little Better Than "sham" For Migraine

Acupuncture proven just as good as counseling for treating depression

They randomly assigned people to one of four groups: In three, patients were given one of three different types of acupuncture that focused on traditional points, with electrical stimulation added to the needling; the fourth group received a sham version. In the sham group, needles were inserted in the skin at non-traditional sites, with electrical stimulation. But the needles were not manipulated to create a so-called "de qi" sensation. Patients in all four groups were offered 20 acupuncture sessions over four weeks. In the month after treatment ended, migraine sufferers in all four groups were reporting fewer headache days, Li's team found. On average, they had migraine pain on about three days out of the month -- down from around six days at the study's start. In the third month after treatment, the "real" acupuncture groups were doing slightly better, while the sham group held steady at around three headache days. But the advantage was "clinically minor," according to Li's team, who did not respond to requests for comment. 'SHAM' MAY HAVE REAL EFFECTS So does that mean acupuncture's benefits are all in your head? No, according to Dr. Albrecht Molsberger, of Ruhr University Bochum in Germany, who wrote an editorial published with the study. The problem, he told Reuters Health by email, is that sham acupuncture is not a true placebo -- and may have real physiological effects.

A new study recently published in the open-access journal PLOS ONE found that acupuncture is at least equally as effective as counseling at treating depression symptoms and that acupuncture in particular can lead to a nearly 50 percent reduction on the depression scale in just three months. To arrive at this conclusion, Hugh MacPherson and his colleagues from the University of York in the U.K. evaluated 755 patients with moderate to severe depression. According to Reuters, 302 of these patients were randomly assigned to a group that received 12 weekly acupuncture sessions, while another 302 were assigned to 12 weekly counseling sessions. The remaining 151 patients received usual care, which presumably included antidepressants and other pharmaceuticals. At the beginning of the study, the average depression score among all patients was 16 on a scale from 0 to 27, with 27 representing extreme depression. A 16, according to reports, is considered to bayview chiropractic be moderately severe depression. But at the end of three months, patients in the acupuncture group experienced a significant drop on the scale from an average of 16 down to nine, which is considered to be the higher end of the mild depression category. The average depression score also dropped in the counseling group, to an average of 11, while the typical care group only dropped to about 13. Even better was the fact that the benefits of these treatments persisted, lasting an additional three months following the study's conclusion. In other words, even after the study was over, patients in the acupuncture and counseling groups continued to experience the benefits of these treatments. "For people who have depression, who have tried various medical options, who are still not getting the benefit they want, they should try acupuncture or counseling as options that are now known to be clinically effective," stated MacPherson about the incredible results.

Wellsprings Acupuncture: Westborough practice moves to larger space

Deb Hall, owner and acupuncturist, Wellsprings Acupuncture. Photo/Nancy Brumback A British study found that people who had acupuncture alongside their anti-depressants improved more after three months than those who simply took drugs. Depression costs the English economy 9billion a year and although acupuncture is used to treat it, there has been little research into whether it helps. More than 755 men and women with moderate to severe depression were studied. Depression costs the English economy 9billion a year One group had acupuncture alongside their normal treatment, including any drugs, a second had counselling added in, while a third group was treated as usual. Acupuncture and counselling improved symptoms for up to six months. After that, the health of those being treated normally had improved so much that acupuncture and counselling did not provide any extra benefit. Researcher Dr Hugh MacPherson, who is trained in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, said: We have provided evidence that acupuncture versus usual care and counselling versus usual care are both associated with a significant reduction in symptoms of depression in the short to medium term, and are not associated with serious adverse events. Writing in the journal PLoS Medicine (MUST CREDIT), he added that it is still not clear if acupuncture will help people with mild depression.

York University researchers said the finding is important because many patients with depression are interested in alternatives to drugs You dont have to believe in all the premises of Chinese medicine to make acupuncture work, Hall said with a laugh, though it is helpful if you are open-minded about it. Acupuncture does not require a referral from a physician. The treatments are not covered by insurance, though Wellsprings has agreements with Fallon, Tufts, and Aetna health plans to give members a 25 percent discount. The treatments are covered under health savings accounts. At the first appointment, Hall discusses the patients complete health history, and uses careful observation, the patients pulses, and an examination of the tongue to determine the initial course of treatment. All of those tools are critical in Chinese medicine. During a treatment session, she generally inserts 12 to 18 needles at carefully determined points. The needles are as thin as a human hair so there is little or no pain when they are inserted, and they are only used once. The patient lies on a table with the needles in place for about 15 to 30 minutes. Hall schedules the first three sessions close together then evaluates the results to determine further treatment needs.

Acupuncture, Counseling Could Help People With Depression

"Be sure to ask for clarification and don't hesitate to make sure you understand your treatment protocol." Flickr photo by paparutzi 6. No Really, Open Your Mouth It's normal for the acupuncturist to check your tongue to assess the general health of your organs and meridians. Your practitioner will also check your pulse, which Moores says can reveal a lot. "It can tell you what's going on in the body as far as stagnation and stress," she explains. "We're not really checking for the rate." Flickr photo by nathanmac87 7. They Call It A 'Zing' If you're Trypanophobic, we'll give it to you straight: more likely than not, your acupuncturist will be using needles. If you're feeling just a little wary, know that, as Moores puts it, "acupuncture needles are sterile, one-time use disposable needles." They are also incredibly flexible and not at all like those used to draw blood. But do they hurt? "That's the one big question," Moores says. "I don't think [it hurts]," she continues, "most people don't think so." But while it's not necessarily a painful experience, you may feel sensitivities on different areas of the body. "Sometimes you can feel a little qi sensation -- we call it a 'zing.' It's when the needle hits the nerve," she says, comparing it to the feeling you get when you hit your funny bone.

Acupuncture Could Help Patients With Depression

JCC grows wellness offerings with acupuncture

The study, conducted by a team led by Dr Hugh MacPherson, of the Department of Health Sciences at the University of York, found that in a primary care setting, combining acupuncture or counselling with usual care had some benefits after three months for patients with recurring depression. The study, which also involved researchers from the Centre for Health Economics at York and Hull York Medical School, was funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Programme Grants for Applied Research Programme. Many patients with depression are interested in receiving non-drug therapies, however, there is limited evidence to support the use of acupuncture or counselling for depression in a primary care setting. In this pragmatic randomised controlled trial conducted in the North of England, the research team randomised patients with depression to receive 12 weekly sessions of acupuncture plus usual care (302 patients), or 12 weekly sessions of counselling plus usual care (302 patients), or usual care alone (151 patients). Compared with usual care alone, there was a significant reduction in average depression scores at three months for both the acupuncture and counselling interventions, but there was no significant difference in depression scores between the acupuncture and counselling groups. At nine months and 12 months, because of improvements in the depression scores in the usual care group, acupuncture and counselling were no longer better than usual care. The study is published in the journal PLOS Medicine. FEATURED ARTICLES

Acupuncture for osteoarthritis

A British study found that people who had acupuncture alongside their anti-depressants improved more after three months than those who simply took drugs. Depression costs the English economy 9billion a year and although acupuncture is used to treat it, there has been little research into whether it helps. More than 755 men and women with moderate to severe depression were studied. Depression costs the English economy 9billion a year One group had acupuncture alongside their normal treatment, including any drugs, a second had counselling added in, while a third group was treated as usual. Acupuncture and counselling improved symptoms for up to six months. After that, the health of those being treated normally had improved so much that acupuncture and counselling did not provide any extra benefit. Researcher Dr Hugh MacPherson, who is trained in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, said: We have provided evidence that acupuncture versus usual care and counselling versus usual care are both associated with a significant reduction in symptoms of depression in the short to medium term, and are not associated with serious adverse events. Writing in the journal PLoS Medicine (MUST CREDIT), he added that it is still not clear if acupuncture will help people with mild depression.

"It's great working with all types of people," said Murray, who runs her practice at 300 Federal Road. "Whether it's getting a tennis player with a bad elbow back on the courts or somebody who wants to play golf or even just get back to walking -- it's all very rewarding for me." Murray treats about 30 patients a week and she has been operating her practice in Brookfield since 1997. She is a national board certified, licensed acupuncturist and combines that with an advanced degree in exercise physiology. She is also a nationally certified athletic trainer. She had to put in 2,700 hours as part of a three-year program in acupuncture at the New York College of Health Professions in Long Island. Murray's background in both athletic training and acupuncture offer a very unique perspective to both diagnose and treat injuries. "I get good results," said Murray, who also served as an athletic trainer at the high school and collegiate level. "There's 5,000 years of history behind it (acupuncture)." I was able to sit in on a session with one of her patients, professional cyclist and Newtown resident, Monte Frank , who began seeing Murray in 2010 after experiencing pa left knee injury. "I was miserable and leaning toward getting surgery, but I decided to give acupuncture a try," Frank said. "It has really helped and I didn't have the surgery.

How acupuncture can ease depression:

York University researchers said the finding is important because many patients with depression are interested in alternatives to drugs In osteoarthritis, the surface of the cartilage becomes rough, and with time, if the cartilage wears down completely, bone begins to rub against bone. Osteoarthritis can damage any joint in the body. It primarily affects the joints in the hands, neck, lower back, knees and hips. While the condition has no cure, treatment can slow its progression, relieve pain and improve joint function. Symptoms Osteoarthritis symptoms often develop slowly and worsen over time. Signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis include: Pain during or after movement Tenderness Stiffness, especially in the morning or after a period of inactivity Loss of flexibility Grating sensation when the joint is in motion Bone spurs - these extra bits of bone, which feel like hard lumps, may form around the affected joint Acupuncture Acupuncture treatments can be administered to reduce pain, tenderness and stiffness in the affected joint and improve range of motion and joint strength. Typically, acupuncture points are selected which circle the affected joint, along with other acupuncture points on the arms or legs which assist in relief of joint specific symptoms. Once the very thin acupuncture needles have been inserted in the selected points, a mild electrical charge is usually applied to the needles to enhance the stimulation at the acupuncture point and the effectiveness of the treatment. PRIMARY ACUPUNCTURE POINTS ON THE HANDS: BAXIE Points Located at the junction of the finger digits. These points are used in the treatment of conditions related to the hands and wrists. PRIMARY ACUPUNCTURE POINTS ON THE BACK: BACK BLADDER points Located 1.5" lateral to the lower border of the spinous process of each vertebrae of the spine. These points are used for pain along any area of the spine. PRIMARY ACUPUNCTURE ON THE KNEE: XIYAN and ST.35 These two points are located at the lower inner and outer border of the patella of the knee.

Jason Sonski: Can acupuncture cure what ails you?

Food-wise, Moore suggests eating something light before your appointment. "If you don't eat anything before, you can feel weak after the treatment because a lot of energy is moving around," she says. It's also best to stay away from caffeine for the day, if you can. And consider skipping the coffee before your visit, since it acts as a stimulant. Acupuncture shouldn't be stressful (just the opposite -- it is meant to relieve stress!). Come to your session early so you can relax. "You do not want to be rushing though an acupuncture session," Fitzgerald notes. She also reminds us of the golden rule: use the bathroom before you go! Solid advice, as you may be on the table for a half hour or longer. If possible, do not wear any scented creams or fragrances the day of your appointment. Moores explains that "a lot of people are sensitive. I treat things like headaches ...

Her state license has been placed on two years probation, and she must have her work monitored by a doctor or nurse practitioner who specializes in pain management. Iowa Health-Des Moines, now known as UnityPoint Health, never gave details on why it closed its busy pain relief clinic near Iowa Lutheran Hospital. A company spokeswoman declined to comment Friday. Another doctor who worked at the clinic, Andrzej Szczepanek, faces administrative charges from the Iowa Board of Medicine, which licenses physicians. Those charges, filed in January, accuse the doctor of willful or gross negligence for indiscriminately prescribing addictive painkillers to patients. Baldi faces similar allegations from the licensing board, and has agreed not to practice medicine while the matter is pending.

Patients should be monitored for side effects, especially those caused by NSAIDs, such as kidney, heart and blood vessel, or stomach and intestinal problems. When pain lasts or increases, the doctor may change the prescription to a Step 2 or Step 3 pain medication. Most patients with cancer -related pain will need a Step 2 or Step 3 medication. The doctor may skip Step 1 medications if the patient initially has moderate to severe pain. At each step, the doctor may prescribe additional drugs or treatments (for example, radiation therapy). The patient should take doses regularly, "by mouth, by the clock" (at scheduled times), to maintain a constant level of the drug in the body; this will help prevent recurrence of pain. If the patient is unable to swallow, the drugs are given by other routes (for example, by infusion or injection). The doctor may prescribe additional doses of drug that can be taken as needed for pain that occurs between scheduled doses of drug. The doctor will adjust the pain medication regimen for each patient's individual circumstances and physical condition. Acetaminophen and NSAIDs NSAIDs are effective for relief of mild pain.

Baby's Neck Broken By Chiropractor As Doctor Calls For Halt To Chiropractic Treatment On Children

Smithtown Chiropractor Robert Klass Announces House Calls

By Jonathan Vankin , Mon, September 30, 2013 An Australian pediatrician is trying to make his countrys medical authorities see that violently twisting a babys neck of might not be the most advisable way to treat a child of that vulnerable age. Melbourne doctor Chris Pappas says that last year he treated a 4-month-old infant for a broken neck caused by an out-of-control chiropractor. Now he wants Australia to ban chiropractors from treating babies altogether. Another few millimeters and there would have been a devastating spinal cord injury and the baby would have either died or had severe neurological impairment with quadriplegia, Pappas said. Everybody was very nervous about this little baby. But when he brought the case to the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency, Pappas got a letter back saying only that the chiropractors treatment of the child is, or may be, unsatisfactory. The chiropractor in question was told to take more classes in how to treat small children. Pappas found the agencys response just as unsatisfactory, so now he is speaking out. I think they have put the chiropractors interests before the interests of the public and I think thats wrong, Pappas said. I dont think chiropractors should be treating infants full stop. In my opinion its inappropriate and it carries a very small but real risk of causing damage. Other reports in Australia have said that in Sydney hospitals, chiropractors have been treating small children right in the pediatric wards with no authorization from hospital brass. The New South Wales branch of the Australian Medical Association issued a statement calling the actions of those chiropractors outrageous. The president of the countrys Chiropractors Association, on the other hand, says theres nothing to worry about. Chiropractic care can be remarkably gentle, said Laurie Tassell. Being a five-year, university-trained spinal health expert, a chiropractor will modify their adjustment techniques to suit the age and spine of each individual child. Doctors have opinions, but there is little evidence either way on the risks and benefits of chiropractic care for children. One study in the journal Pediatrics for 2007 found nine cases of adverse effects, including one child who was reportedly rendered paraplegic by a chiropractors mistake.

"Chiropractor Palm Springs CA" | Palm Springs Chiropractors {Testimonial}

Janowitz completed several months of additional study and worked personally with whiplash treatment pioneer Dr. Art Croft during the certification process. Although Dr. Janowitz has already treated thousands of cases of whiplash, neck injuries, headaches, and back injuries, he states that this certification gives him more tools for helping patients. Specifically, he says he is better prepared to provide technical documentation needed for insurance, the courts and other healthcare providers. According to the Oviedo chiropractor, whiplash injuries are highly complex and can cause severe pain for years without correct treatment. Dr. Janowitz describes whiplash as a sudden injury that damages muscles, discs, ligaments, nerves and even the vertebrae themselves--all in a fraction of a second. He says prompt treatment is the key to avoiding years of unnecessary pain from whiplash and other car accident injuries. Dr. Janowitz explains he was driven to complete this extra certification by his desire to help his patients. "At least 3 million people suffer whiplash each year, but many people don't realize how low-speed crashes that cause so little damage to their cars can actually cause major damage to the spine and nervous system.

Iconpractice Brings Cloud Computing Benefits To Chiropractic Practice Management Software

Many businesses are finding that moving their software applications to the cloud makes sound business sense. Web based applications typically charge a monthly service fee for use rather than a large upfront purchase cost, and the service fee is usually less than the ongoing support charges of traditional software. Dr Holmes from Clear Health Media commented, "By using iconpractice, chiropractors can typically save between $2,000 and $10,000 in upfront costs, and still have full email support, automatic upgrades and backups for just a small monthly fee.

Former Bryan Chiropractic Clinic Owner Convicted in $3 Million Auto Insurance Fraud Conspiracy

Jessie was instructed on which treatments to mark down in order for the billing to be approved and to alternate treatments on the billing so it did not look suspicious. At one point, Jessie provided a set of treatment guidelines to an employee at Private Chiropractic Care to follow which were needed for the billing of patients. Jessie instructed that employee to mark down patient treatments, even if the treatments were not done, because it was necessary for billing. Jessie further instructed the employee to have the patients initial off next to the fraudulent treatments as if they received them. Jessie also fraudulently marked down treatments and the patients pain levels on treatment forms at the Sanjoh & Associates office when the patient had not received the treatment. She also prepared the false chiropractic billing statements at Sanjoh & Associates. Although most of the treatments billed were never performed, Jessie created false and fraudulent chiropractic bills under Lindseys name for each of the four clinics in the schemeTexas Avenue Chiropractic Clinic, H & E Chiropractic, Private Chiropractic Care, and Lindsey Chiropractic Care. Despite changing the name and location of the chiropractic clinic four times, the fraud scheme remained the same. Jessie knew the fraudulent bills she created were used as support for settlement demand letters sent to auto insurance companies. The fraudulent demand letters caused the insurance companies to issue settlement checks and place those checks into the U.S. mail to be delivered to Sanjoh & Associates.

Orleans Chiropractor, Beacon Hill Chiropractic Clinic, Offers Ottawa's Only Spine-Align Instrument

Gardner On Oct. 9, the Palmer Chiropractic Clinics' Davenport Clinic will host its annual community open house from 1 to 7 p.m. The free event, which welcomes the public into the clinic for tours, screenings and more, is held in celebration of National Spinal Health Month each year. It's not just about the spine, though. This year, event organizers hope to highlight the role chiropractic care can play in maintaining joint health. Critical to all movement, joints are an important factor in our day-to-day mobility and comfort, and chiropractors have the training to "address the structure and function of every single joint in the body," according to a press release for the upcoming event. "Joint health equals movement. The spine itself is made up of a series of joints. When you have a problem, even with small joints, it reduces the function and quality of life," says Dr. Julie Johnson, a chiropractor with Palmer who helps put together the event. The open house will feature more than a dozen interactive stations offering blood pressure screenings, posture screenings, functional movement assessments and more.

Soothing A Patient Undergoing Chiropractic Treatment, The RX Decom Way

He said the RX Decom was a spinal traction device fitted with various sensors which were used during a chiropractic treatment. Claiming the RX Decom to be the first of its kind in the world, it took Dr Yama about 15 years to completed its invention which cost more than RM500,000. The good doctor, who was also afflicted with slip disc ailment when he was 24, said the machine was also meant to treat severe back and neck problems, among others. "That is why, our chiropractic centre is different from the other centres in Malaysia and other countries, because we are not just a chiropractic centre, rather, we have a combination of chiropractic, physiotheraphy and the Rx Decom machine," he said. Elaborating on the RX Decom, he said the machine would regulate the muscles to relax, via wired sensors, during stretching sessions as soon as it sensed a muscle reaction. He said if the contraction happened three times consecutively, the treatment would be halted to avoid the risk of further aggravation. The treatment will result in less pressure between the spinal bones and the disc which can lead to a positive recuperation process due to less contractions in the spinal area. Dr Yama said the machine also took into account a patient s age, size, gender, health condition, level of pain and treatment progress, among others, before suggesting a gentle decompressive pull. He said the machine was part of Non-Surgical Therapy at the centre which provided several modules for the therapy. "The treatment module also includes therapeutic ultrasound, electrical stimulation, specific forms of myofascial release, stretching and soft tissue mobilisations, flexion/distraction therapy, progressive exercises as performed by the Spinercise, and specific chiropractic manipulations," he said. He said the cost of every session ranged from between RM230 and RM280.

Vibrational Massage Healing Therapy

Roseville: 6 more women accuse massage therapist of sexual touching

Choming oil, which is imbued with the vibration of a gem, is used to enhance the vibrational healing experience. Vibrational massage works will in conjunction with other massage therapies and complements other forms of bodywork including Swedish Massage, Trager, Cranial-Sacral and foot reflexology therapies. There is no standard time frame for vibrational massage. It can be performed for as little as 10 minutes as a prelude to other massages. Alternately, vibrational massage can be worked into a full body massage lasting 60 to 90 minutes. Although clients may recline on a massage table, vibrational healing therapy is usually performed with the guest seated in a chair, on the floor, or in any make-shift place.? Types of VHMT There are three main types of vibrational massage therapy. Besides the traditional vibrational healing massage therapy or VHMT, therapists may use Samvahan or musical vibrational massage therapies. Several other vibrational massage therapies exist, which stem from these three basic vibrational healing philosophies. Samvahan massage therapies incorporate principles of acupuncture or acupressure to focus on the bodys energy centers. Samvahan therapies are centered along the spine, which is thought to be the seat of the bodys greatest imbalances. Samvahan therapies closely resemble energy healing in that they may combine chakra therapies or crystals to elicit results. Musical forms of vibrational massage therapy rely on the pulsation of music to assist with the healing process.

The Magic of Massage Therapy

Ease fibromyalgia symptoms. Some studies support the use of massage therapy to reduce muscle bayviewwellness stiffness and pain in women with fibromyalgia . Although massage therapy has few side effects, people who have blood clots, tend to bleed or bruise easily, or are at risk of fractures should check with their doctor before scheduling a therapeutic massage. Pregnant women should also talk to their doctors before undergoing massage therapy. Massage Therapy: What Should I Expect? Massage therapy sessions typically last between 30 and 60 minutes but may be as lengthy as two hours. Some massage therapists can come to your home or job; others may require you to visit their office in a clinic, hospital, or fitness center. A massage therapist usually creates a tranquil atmosphere, with calming music, relaxing scents, and soft lighting. Fully or partially clothed, you will lie on a specially designed massage table or sit in a specially designed chair. Licensed massage therapists typically receive at least 500 hours of training and must pass nationalized exams. Don't hesitate to ask for details about a massage therapist's training or background in working with clients who have your same health condition. Keep in mind that some massage therapists are more experienced than others. Massage therapists do not necessarily receive the training needed for some of these advanced therapeutic massage techniques, observes Schneeweiss.

Massage Therapy Gains Sign of Acceptance

revealed two reports against the defendant to the Minnesota Department of Health, which had not been forwarded to the Roseville Police Department," the complaints said. Those Health Department reports included allegations by two former clients who said Palmer either touched their private areas or forced one woman, while holding her arms, to touch his. The incidents allegedly occurred in January and August 2012. A Health Department spokesman did not return a call for comment Friday evening. One of the women who complained to the Health Department -- a trained massage therapist herself -- said in her report, "When working on a new client, you never do anything that could possibly make the client feel uncomfortable and especially you never touch someone's private areas." In addition to the two women who contacted the Health Department, a woman went to Roseville police in 2011 saying Palmer inappropriately touched her genitalia during a massage. "A Roseville investigator contacted (Palmer) in 2011 to discuss the report, but he contacted an attorney and then declined an interview," the complaints said. Palmer was not arrested until after a fourth woman came forward in February 2013. Her allegations led to the initial charges in July. Following media reports about the case, three more women contacted Roseville police and said they, too, had been touched inappropriately by Palmer during sessions this year -- bringing the total number of alleged victims to seven.

Watsu and Other Water Bodywork Therapies Photograph by: Video Image , Empowered Health Q: What are the benefits of massage therapy for runners and walkers? A: Massage therapy has been used extensively by amateur and professional athletes to aid in the relief of muscle soreness and injury prevention. Many studies are insufficient to conclusively support or refute benefits of massage specific to sport (mostly due to lack of quality research), however there are still many noted benefits to massage therapy. The most obvious would be treatment of various conditions that may inhibit a runner/walker's ability to participate, such as, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, ili-otibial band syndrome (ITBS), and shin splints. Specific to the day of their event, runners/ walkers often report feeling more supple and flexible, stimulating or "waking up" the targeted muscle groups, as well as an increased range of motion (ROM). Benefits may also include a psychological effect (ie. feeling better psychologically may result in better performance). Massage has been shown to have the most benefit especially when performed in combination with proper warm-up and stretching. Q: When is the best time to get a massage? (How close to my run/walk) A: Massage therapy can be provided both pre-event (ie. before your run/walk) and post-event, depending on your specific needs and goals. For example, pre-event massage may be used immediately before an event to stimulate targeted areas and assist ROM.

Making the most of massage therapy

In September the New Center became the New Center College, after the Board of Regents approved four-semester associate's degrees with a major in massage therapy. The program is the first in the nation to offer a degree in massage therapy. ''For massage therapists, this gives us more recognition and greater respect,'' Ms. Filippelli, who has started her own practice, said. ''It's a first step toward having the medical profession see us as more credible.'' A study in The New England Journal of Medicine in 1993 by Dr. David Eisenberg, director of the Harvard University medical education programs on alternative medicine, reported that 12.6 million Americans used massage therapy in 1990, making 77 million visits to therapists. That year Americans spent $14 billion on alternative medicine, often referred to as holistic medicine, and made a total of 425 million visits to alternative therapists, exceeding the 388 million visits to primary-care doctors. The president of the New Center College, Steven Schenkman, said: l ''Many disillusioned individuals are looking beyond a Western medical system that relies heavily on invasive treatments like surgery and medications with many possible side effects.'' The new status, he said, ''is part of the evolution of a profession that has been recognized in Eastern cultures for 5,000 years, but is just first becoming recognized and respected in the West.'' For students, he added, graduating with associate's degrees is a jump from receiving a trade license at a vocational school to obtaining a professional degree. The program, which has 350 students, started in 1981.

Uploaded on Dec 23, 2011 Ingrown Toenails - Chiropodist-Podiatrist in Mississauga, Oakville and Brampton, ON Chiropodist Bill Dedes discusses the symptoms, causes and treatment for ingrown toenails. Ingrown toenails, also known as onychocryptosis, are usually caused by trimming toenails too short, particularly on the sides of the big toes. They may also be caused by shoe pressure (from shoes that are too tight or short), injury, fungus infection, heredity, or poor foot structure. Ingrown toenails occur when the corners or sides of the toenail dig into the skin, often causing infection. A common ailment, ingrown toenails can be painful. Ingrown toenails start out hard, swollen, and tender. Left untreated, they may become sore, red, and infected and the skin may start to grow over the ingrown toenail. In most cases, treating ingrown toenails is simple: soak the foot in warm, soapy water several times each day. Avoid wearing tight shoes or socks. Antibiotics are sometimes prescribed if an infection is present.

Introduce yourself to Mr Chiropodist

West Indies Researchers at Highgate Cemetery claim to have uncovered the grave of Abraham Lincolns chiropodist. Dr Issachar Zacharie was said to be the most favoured family visitor at the White House, valued by the former president not only for his skills but also as a sounding board for the opinions of the Jewish community in America. The discovery was made as researchers drew up a new map for visitors plotting the last resting places of the likes of Karl Marx, TV presenter Jeremy Beadle and author Douglas Adams. Dr Ian Dungavell, chief executive of Highgate Cemetery, said: Zacharies connection with Lincoln is fascinating, and especially topical just now. Were always keen to celebrate the exceptional achievements of people buried here at Highgate Cemetery. People know us for Karl Marx, but this is a place to reflect on all those who have gone before us, famous or not. Dr Zacharie died while living at an address in Mayfair and was credited as being founder of the Masonic Order of the Secret Monitor. He is buried in the East Cemetery near a piano memorial, commemorating classical pianist William Thornton. The map has been produced to coincide with the introduction of new entree prices for visitors from tomorrow (March 1). Dr Dungavell added: We dont expect to see Daniel Day-Lewis round here, but you never know.

Uninsured?s chiropody needs often unmet

When it comes to feetcare, he is the name for all the problems. Meet Dharminder Kumar Wadhera, a Chiropodist. Though the dictionary defines Podiatry as another name for Chiropody, the two are different as chiropody cures feet problems and does minor surgery without bleeding or pain. Though the art of chiropody was introduced in India by British it was only Bata Shoes who decided to take further the legacy. Dharminder then an employee of Bata was sent to the companys training institute in Kolkata to learn the art. He says that the knowledge of chiropody is rendered through guru-shishya parampara, I used to assist R R Sharma and V K Arora at the original outlet in Connaught Place and when they retired, I went for training to Kolkata in 2000 and acquired the skill of chiropody. Dharminder explains that his work requires a lot of skill and patience as he deftly cuts a nail like an artisan who carves a jewel and therefore calls it scientific pedicure which is different from cosmetic pedicure available at beauty parlours. But what does he do? A chiropodist treats corns, callouses and warts, indulges in diabetic footcare; nail care; foot surgery and almost all the problems of the feet area below the ankle. And all this sans any pain! A boon for those suffering from various problems of the feet. He has treated a number of people in his two decade old career. But the man believes in serving society and does not want to quit despite it being not a very lucrative job. He lists amongst his clients Kiran Bedi, Shabana Azmi, Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot, Rajya Sabha MP, Ram Vilas Paswan and former Speaker Lok Sabha Somnath Chatterjee to name just a few. Yet, his hi-profile clientele does not mean an increase in fees. Sharing Kiran Bedis case Dharminder recollects, When she became the first lady police officer, the shoes given to her along with uniform caused corns which used to give a lot of pain.

Grave of Lincoln?s chiropodist discovered at Highgate Cemetery

Each clinic operates with one to three chiropodists and simply cannot keep up with the demand, health centres staff report. In south Etobicoke, LAMP Community Health Centre generally has a 40-50 client wait list, at times as high as 120, reported chiropodist Susan McGuire, the chiropody team leader at LAMPs chiropody clinic for the past 25 years. Is there an awareness in government that there is a need? McGuire asked. Is increased funding something they are considering? All these (chiropodist) positions were funded before the LHIN (Local Health Integration Network) system was put into place. Within months, I realized the need was getting out of hand. McGuire estimated LAMPs chiropody clinic could fill an additional chiropodists practice within six months just by clearing its wait list. Chiropodists assess, treat and prevent diseases and disorders of the foot by therapeutic, surgical or orthotic means, including care for corns and calluses, wound care, biomechanics or gait problems, as well as physical therapy. This article is the north york chiropractic second in a series The Guardian is reporting on existing challenges to the provision of adequate foot care for seniors in south Etobicoke. Last week, an article reported Storefront Humber had reinstated its popular and much-needed seniors toenail cutting service after hiring a new nurse.

Austin Chiropractor, Dr. Julia Pinkerton Addresses Benefits Of Chiropractic Care For Pregnant Woman In New Blog

She addresses the Webster Technique and how this technique can ease pelvis pain and bring a baby out of the breech position. A misalignment of the pelvis can cause pressure, restrain and torsion on the uterus and the baby inside. This causes the baby to have less room to move and develop inside the uterus, explains Dr. Pinkerton. Balancing the pelvis and lumbar spine allows the body to open up and the baby to have room to do what it is supposed to do, turn face down to come out head first, concludes Dr. Julia Pinkerton. Dr. Pinkerton is a prominent pregnancy chiropractor in the Austin , Texas area. Subluxation is a common cause of backache in early pregnancy.

Chiropractor with criminal record facing new charges

Updated: September 25, 2013 1:52 p.m. Source: U.S. Department of Justice SHARE LOS ANGELES back pain clinic A San Fernando Valley chiropractor, who was the second highest Medicare biller in California for chiropractic services, pled guilty yesterday to healthcare fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. 1347. Between 2005 and 2012, Houshang Pavehzadeh aka Danny Paveh (41), owner of Sylmar Physician Medical Group, Inc. a storefront chiropractic clinic located in a strip mall defrauded Medicare by billing for patients he never treated. The eleven count indictment alleges that Pavehzadeh submitted over $1.7 million in false and fraudulent claims to Medicare and was paid a little over $1 million on these claims. As part of his guilty plea, Pavehzadeh admitted that, in an effort to conceal his fraud from Medicare auditors, he staged an early-morning car jacking outside his office and falsely reported to the Los Angeles Police Department that his patient files had been stolen. Those persons who seek to bilk the Medicare Program impact both our health care delivery system and the American consumer, said United States Attorney Andre Birotte Jr. Here, the defendant not only tried to bilk the system to the tune of more than $1.7 million, he also had the audacity to try and conceal his criminal activity by filing a bogus police report with the LAPD. Health care fraud in and of itself is a serious offense.Not content to stop there, however, Mr. Pavehzadeh sought to conceal that crime by committing yet another -- filing a false police report, said Glenn R. Ferry, Special Agent in Charge for the Los Angeles Region of the Office of Inspector General for the Department of Health of Human Services.Those intent on breaking these laws should know that through the work of our special agents and auditors, OIG remains committed to seeking justice. Pavehzadeh faces a maximum sentence of ten years imprisonment, a fine of $250,000 and three years of supervised release. United States District Judge Manuel L. Real is scheduled to sentence defendant on January 14, 2014. Note: The Signal delivers press releases from reliable sources to provide up-to-the-minute information to our website readers.

San Fernando Valley chiropractor pleads guilty to fraud

Have you ever wondered what that heavy weight might feel like to someone half your size? Well unfortunately, back pain is increasingly common in children and young adults, and overweight backpacks are a major contributing factor. In 2001, more than 7,000 people in the U.S. went to the emergency room for a backpack-related injury. A recent study in Italy showed that many children are carrying backpacks that are the equivalent of a 39-pound burden for an average adult male. And other research is indicating that the longer a child wears a backpack, the longer their recovery from many spine injuries will take. The problem is so widespread, some states have passed legislation that forces school districts to reduce the weights of childrens backpacks. The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) recommends that no childs backpack should weigh more than 10% of their body weight. What Can You Do? The following tips can help prevent pain and injury resulting from backpack misuse. Make sure your childs backpack weighs no more than 10% of their body weight Use a backpack with individualized compartments to keep the weight more evenly distributed Prevent the backpack from hanging more than 4 inches below the waistline Wear the backpack on both shoulders to prevent asymmetrical weight distribution Adjust the shoulder straps to keep the backpack fitting close against your childs back and not bouncing up and down too easily If the backpack is still too heavy, ask your childs teacher if they can leave their heavier books at school, or if there is an e-version of the textbook available If you or your child experiences any pain or discomfort from backpack use, see your Chiropractor as soon as possible.

Chiropractor to discuss GMOs in workshop

Denver Post Twitter Facebook
Icon Dugan owns and operates Align Chiropractic in Erin Mills. Const. George Tudos said the charges don't relate to Dugan's job. When The News called the Glen Erin Dr. clinic today (Tues. Sept. 24), a woman said Dugan was out of the office and would not be returning for three to six months. Dugan had his licence suspended for four months by the College of Chiropractors of Ontario back in 2010 after a disciplinary panel found he failed to disclose that he was convicted criminally of performing an indecent act in front of a female high school student at Erin Mills Town Centre on Oct. 5, 2006. The panel found that Dugan "committed an act of professional misconduct that, having regard to all the circumstances, would reasonably be regarded by members as disgraceful, dishonourable or unprofessional." Convicted six years ago in Brampton court, Dugan received a conditional discharge and 18 months probation, with conditions that included counselling and staying away from Erin Mills Town Centre and John Fraser Secondary School. Dugan, a registered chiropractor since 1998, remains an active member of the CCO, but his current status isn't immediately known. According to the Align Chiropractic website, Dugan has treated Olympic gymnasts along with NHL and NFL players and cast members working out of Meadowvale Theatre.

She said: Sometimes he would get a call at 3am from an elderly patient who was confused and thought it was 3pm. He would usually gently persuade them it was the morning and tell them he would see them later. But sometimes he would get out of bed and visit them then. He would never get annoyed at them. He was very kind. An inquistive mind with a desire to learn, Alans interests included classical music and the arts, railway history and architecture, photography and horses, and even snakes.

?Compassionate? Worthing chiropodist dies aged 74

The locum podiatrist showed JS a video of a teenager performing a sexual act, before producing a photograph of a woman in a clothes shop changing room. Asked how he got the image, he replied: 'I can go wherever I like.' In an effort to change the subject, JS mentioned that she had previously lived near an army barracks and could see the soldiers practising their drills. Wisson replied: 'I bet you loved that, all those squaddies, I bet you used to to rub up against the window.' The chiropodist then began talking about an 11-year-old girl, who he described as 'well developed' before claiming he had 'taken it upon himself to teach the girl about the facts of life'. Only four months later, in August 2009, he invited a woman, known as Mrs A, to a clinic in Perry Barr, Birmingham when it was empty. The married patient said he then asked her to remove her clothes and massaged her legs and thighs near her bottom, telling her he 'just wanted to meet a chiropractor nice woman'.

'She was clearly a vulnerable woman and has been left ashamed, embarrassed and feels dirty after what you did to her' Panel chairman Ian Cookall said that he failed to care for his patients, was completely inappropriate and that his actions were sexually motivated. 'The comments you made to JS were derogatory and disparaging and the video that you showed to her showing a teenager performing oral sex was demonstrably offensive to her. 'Your actions fell short of what was expected in your personal and professional conduct,' he added. Mr Cookall said Wisson had a 'ridiculous and fanciful' idea that JS was 'anti-male' and that Mrs A and her husband made up the allegations against him.

Chiropodist urges council to save trees if school gets ?nod?

CONCERN Trees outside the old Clarence Street YMCA Or contact us by email or phone . Search: Chiropodist urges council to save trees if school gets nod 12:48pm Tuesday 23rd April 2013 in News CONCERN Trees outside the old Clarence Street YMCA BLACKBURN chiropodist Christopher Hunt has called on the borough council to protect the avenue of trees lining Clarence Street if it approves the bid to build the new Tauheedul Islam Boys School on the site of the former YMCA building at Edinburgh House. He had written to councillors supporting the application for the new educational institution. Mr Hunt, whose runs a chiropodists and podiatrists in Wellington Street, said the empty YMCA building is an eyesore in its present state but is concerned that the trees lining Clarence Street are left intact as they are historic and on a preservation order. His letter was considered by Blackburn with Darwen council planning committee as it noted a petition signed by 499 supporters of the school proposal last week. It follows the councillors receiving four similar documents, with 88 signatures, opposing the scheme. Tauheedul wants to open the new school in September next year. Plans for purpose-built premises were submitted in February. If approved later this year, they will allow the demolition of the former YMCA building so work can start on the new education complex. Bosses at Tauheedul hope that the existing boys school, which opened last year, will move from its current buildings, in Robinson Street, Little Harwood, in September 2014.

Chiropodist experience shows the way to a professional 'nothing' service

But do not read on if you do not like the subject of feet! I have just got back from a trip to the chiropodist. Having for a number of months self-treated unsuccessfully what I thought was a verruca, I decided it was time to get some professional advice. The chiropodist did a fact-find on me my medical background, did the verruca hurt or cause me any problems? before carrying out a thorough examination of my feet (even the one without said complaint). He confirmed it was a verruca and explained how notoriously difficult verrucas are to treat, adding that, depending on ones age, they can take literally years to eradicate. But, he said, a lot of people do not get anywhere with the treatments available at the local pharmacy. In fact, acid was the best treatment but he was not going to prescribe that for me. I was reassured, better informed and came away confident that do nothing was a reasonable course of action. I had taken advice from a professional who knew what he was talking about and he had not tried to sell me anything. His advice was simply do nothing. Did he bill me? Yes, of course. He is a professional and he delivered a professional service. So in answer to Nicks question: yes, of course you can charge a client when your advice is do nothing as long as doing nothing is good advice based on your experience, skills, qualifications and expertise. Why?

Acupuncture As Good As Counseling For Depression, Study Finds

640_Acupuncture.jpg They found doctors would need to treat seven people using acupuncture and 10 people with counseling for one person to no longer be depressed. "What this says is if you don't get completely better, there are other options," Dr. Philip Muskin, a psychiatrist at Columbia University Medical Center in New York, told Reuters Health. "One option would be to take a different medication, but by this study these would be valid options," said Muskin, who was not involved with the new research. He cautioned, however, that counseling and acupuncture are not replacements for medication. The majority of study participants were still taking antidepressants at the end of the three months. Muskin said the study also doesn't show what types of patients respond best to acupuncture or counseling. "What I can't tell from this study is who's who. Not everybody got better," he said.

Arvada Business Focus: Calm Spirit Acupuncture

Calm Spirit Acupuncture in Arvada As effective as antidepressant medications are, in some studies up to 60% of patients dont report adequate relief of their mood symptoms, and another 30% stop taking their drugs as prescribed. So researchers from the University of York in the UK compared the effects of adding either acupunctureor counseling to usual primary care monitoring for depression that included treatment with antidepressants. Among more than 750 patients who had discussed depressive symptoms with their primary care physicians in the past five years, one group were provided with 12 weeklyacupuncturesessions on top of their usual care, while another group received12 weeklysessionsof counseling combined with their usual care, and the remainder continued with their existing care. (MORE: Acupuncture May Offer Real Relief for Chronic Pain ) During the first three months of the study, both the acupunctureand counseling groups showed a greater reduction in depression symptoms compared to the patients onlyreceiving usual care. However, as the study went on, there were no noticeable differences between the three forms of care at nine and 12 months. That suggests that antidepressant treatments may take time to balance mood, and that acupuncture and counseling may need to continue for extended periods of time to counter depressive symptoms. So for the short term, as the medications start to rebalance mood, adding the non-drug therapies may help patients feel better sooner than they would on the drugs alone. The study is published in the journalPLOS Medicine.

He posted the 10 percent and was released on bail. Clatsop County District Attorney Josh Marquis asked Monday that $10,000 be added up for each current count and security set at $700,000. With multiple victims, I think that calls for the standard security, Marquis said, indicating the amount was reached by jail staff. Marquis stated his main concern was the seriousness of the charges and Lopez's financial resources available to him. Lopez lawyer, Mark Lang, indicated that Lopez had effectively gone on paid administrative leave from his office and would not continue working if released. At this point, he will not be treating patients, Lang said. He pointed out Lopez family and community ties in consideration of security being set. I dont see him as a flight risk. Thats the concern a number of victims have, Marquis said, about Lopez, if he was still working while out of jail. He said the case is still under investigation.

Dr. Elizabeth Harr, who has owned Delmont Veterinary Hospital since 2001, said the treatment, which helps trigger the immune system, is considered alternative to some because of its more holistic nature.

Thats tough in a young dog because theyre always using their legs and jumping around, he said. Toni Coulter of Vandergrift has been bringing Aspen for about a year to the Delmont facility, one of four locations at which Savko holds appointments. As soon as we started seeing Dr. Savko, it started getting better, she said. Other pet owners praised Savko, who is only one of a few veterinary chiropractors in the area. Gloria Frick of Plum has had Savko treat four dogs: one with ear infections, another with muscle spasms, a third with a bulging disc in its back, and the fourth with fractured vertebrae.

Queens Chiropractors Say Prompt Treatment Makes a Difference for Whiplash Injuries

The majority of chiropractors are self-employed or work for private practices (such as specialist chiropractic clinics and complementary health clinics). Contract work may be available with some GP practices and National Health Service (NHS) Trusts.

gtr-savko-091613_Scha.jpg Lee's Spine Center 21 hours ago Print QUEENS, N.Y., Sept. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Auto accident patients may benefit from prompt treatment following their accident, says the chiropractic team at Dr. Lee's Spine Center in Queens. The Queens chiropractor found that patients who receive treatment immediately following their accident suffer from less long-term pain and are better able to resume an active lifestyle. Delaying treatment -- or relying on medication to manage pain -- is less effective and can lead to long-term health problems, says the chiropractor. Dr. Lee says that non-invasive and drug-free pain management treatments, including chiropractic care, produce the best results for patients. Queens chiropractor Dr. James Lee is urging car accident victims to seek prompt diagnostic treatment -- even after minor rear-impact accidents, such as fender benders. According to Dr. Lee, whiplash injuries can happen at speeds as slow as 5mph. However, many accident victims do not realize they have sustained serious musculoskeletal injuries until the onset of chronic neck pain and headaches.
