Surprise! Your Best Referral Source

By Donald M. Petersen Jr., BS, HCD(hc), FICC(h), Publisher

Exciting study findings recently published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine reveal the probability that U.S. medical physicians "recommend complementary health approaches (CHAs) to their patients." For the study, the researchers used "physician-level data" from the "2012 Physician Induction Interview of the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS PII), a nationally representative survey of office-based physicians."

Stabilizing the SI – A Fresh Clinical Approach (Pt. 1)

By Howard Pettersson, DC, J.R. Green, DC and D. Ranier Pavilek, DC, ACT, DACRB

The sacroiliac joint plays a central role in low back and pelvic mobility, in addition to core musculature and hamstring function. Human biomechanics and anatomy accomplish SIJ stability in multiple ways including Vleeming's "form closure" and "force closure," as well as Janda's lower crossed model. The purpose of this series is to integrate Vleeming's functional model and Janda's model of dysfunction to remediate what we have designated "force closure dysfunction."

Five Simple Exercises to Prevent Age-Related Muscle Loss

By Thomas Michaud, DC

It's a depressing fact, but shortly after age 50, you begin to lose nearly 2 percent of your muscle fibers each year. Figure 1 is a graph of the average number of quadriceps muscle fibers present in adults ages 18 to 82.1 Looking at the center of the graph, you can see how the number of muscle fibers remain stable through your 30s and 40s. After that, muscle mass declines rapidly, dropping from 600,000 muscle fibers at age 50 to 320,000 muscle fibers by age 80.
