Key components of a performance / recovery drink – and what many are missing.
By Robert Silverman, DC, MS, CCN, CSCS
Athletes frequently ask me what the best liquid is to drink during exercise – water or a sports drink? Water provides the necessary hydration, but unfortunately, it lacks the key nutrients to aid in performance and recovery. If water is not sufficient, what, then, is the best sports drink on the market?

As mentioned in part 1, using a flexion-distraction table is a great way to unlock this particular fixation. You have found the stuck segment. You have determined whether it is unilateral, midline or bilateral. Now place the patient prone on the table. A small bolster under the abdomen that takes them out of lumbar extension may help here. Place your contact hand so you get good leverage from below on the affected segment.

The pelvis can be considered a ring that can misalign on the sacrum rotating around the long axis. The following is a description of an adjustment that helps to correct sacroiliac rotation around the long axis. It is a unique procedure I have used daily for the past 10 years. This adjustment is easy to master and will be a useful tool in the chiropractor's repertoire for the correction of the pelvic subluxation complex.

Since these tests have a common mechanism of performance (standing on one leg), there are differential diagnostic concerns during testing. The tests cannot be completely isolated from each other for performance. Standing on one leg alone without performing any of the additional maneuvers unique to the individual tests can cause a positive (pathological indicator) for more than one test.

The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) recently announced it was merging the National Chiropractic Legal Action Fund (NCLAF) and the Chiropractic Health Advocacy and Mobilization Project (CHAMP) into a single entity that will support both legal and legislative actions. While that action may seem unimportant, as a five-figure contributor, charter board member, and past chairman of the NCLAF, the announcement shocked me.

By now, most of you have probably heard that the American Heart Association recently published a statement regarding the association between cervical dissection (CD) and cervical manipulative therapy (CMT). The Aug. 7, 2014 statement, accompanied by a white paper on the topic, was endorsed by both the American Association of Neurological Surgeons and the Congress of Neurological Surgeons.
Those who knew him called him a revered leader, a visionary and one of chiropractic's biggest advocates. George A. Goodman, DC, Logan University's sixth and longest-serving president, passed away on Sept. 9. He was 70 years old. Evidence of Dr. Goodman's leadership is not only found on the Logan campus, but also within the health care profession, where he worked tirelessly to elevate chiropractic. As a doctor, teacher and president, he remained a perpetual student of chiropractic and had foresight to see opportunity when it wasn't visible to others.
