Lifestyle medicine and how we could lose wellness care to the MD market.
By Donald Hayes, DC
Call me old-fashioned, paranoid or just old, but I do remember graduating from chiropractic college in the late '70s in the midst of the Wilk v AMA lawsuit. For those of you too young to remember, in 1976, Dr. Chester Wilk and four other chiropractors sued the AMA, several nationwide health care associations and several physicians for violations of sections #1-2 of the Sherman Antitrust Act.

The more than 700 million iPhone users have just been given the opportunity to "do their part to advance medical research." Apple has released ResearchKit, "an open-source software framework that makes it easy for researchers and developers to create apps that could revolutionize medical studies, potentially transforming medicine forever."

John Kitzhaber, MD, recently re-elected to a historic fourth term as Oregon governor, has resigned among alleged ethics violations by his fiancée' and first lady, Cylvia Hayes. I developed a personal friendship with John and consider him a good friend. I didn't know him prior to 2010, but as the profession's lobbyist during the 2009 gubernatorial race, I made it my business to know him.

I find functionally impinged hips that don't move properly on so many of my patients. (See part 1 of this article for a description of the condition.) Without correcting this anterior hip pattern, these patients are probably doomed to recurring hip pain, medial knee pain and/or lower back problems. Fortunately, we can help. Why is proper hip motion so important? The hip does not have to hurt when it is dysfunctional. My patients are often surprised by their lack of hip motion.

  Tempur Pedic Get Immediate Relief from Neck and Back Pain From Weightloss to Wellness: Nutritional Essentials Your One-Stop Shop for Chiropractic Supplies  
By Ronald Fudala, DC, DACAN
As briefly discussed in part 1 [April 15 issue], even when lumbar facet denervation (medial branch neurotomy) is successful, relief is rarely complete or permanent. Smuck, et al., reviewed 16 articles and found the average duration of >50 percent pain relief for an initial procedure was nine months. Repeat medial branch neurotomy carried a success rate between 33-85 percent, with an average duration lasting 11.6 months.
Natural Remedies: Poultices, Compresses and Wraps
By Claudia Anrig, DC
Since the skin is the body's largest organ, and is able to respond to both internal and external stimulations, communicate sensations to the brain, protect the body, breathe and even excrete toxins, it can be an excellent source of healing. For centuries, poultices and compresses (containing specific substances) have been used to enhance healing via the skin.
