Cross-fitness centers are expanding in number and increasing in popularity. To remain relevant to this growing portion of society, practitioners need to learn about the exercises and injuries common to this group. I have a love-hate relationship with cross-fitness. I love the functional aspect of cross-fitness workouts and the push toward functional motion patterns, versus the use of weight-lifting machines and muscle isolation exercises.

Food and supplement safety is a topic that often comes up when I speak to chiropractors for CE relicensing, even when it is not the advertised subject. In fact, it was an off-topic discussion that prompted me to research and write about genetically modified foods (the umbrella term is GMO, with the "O" standing for organism; see my three-part series that began in the Nov. 15, 2013 issue) after a DC said she would never eat corn because of how unhealthy GMOs are.

By John Hanks, DC
In a previous column ["When Patients Lie (Bribe or Flatter)," Oct. 1, 2015], I discussed the issue of patients lying to doctors, and the many reasons why this can occur.
