Chiropractic and Children

Diana Williams of WABC-TV of New York, NY and Channel 9: wftv.com of Orlando, Florida reports about a chiropractor that uses the ProAdjuster system. Click here to view the video segment titled "Space Age Back Healing". Chiropractors claims regarding the benefits for chiropractic and children range from ear infections, cholicky infants, ADHD and scoliosis. While I do not promote non-musculoskeletal conditions with chiropractic, I have heard from collegues with many success stories. In 2007, one study found that chiropractic can help reduce high blood pressure. Therefore, it is important to keep an open mind and watch for more research before jumping to conclusions. Children have the same pains and aches as any adults so I treat children for musculoskeletal disorders like a sprain or strain. It is always best to address a problem early so I would endorse chiropractic for children. It is important to educate children with good habits such as good posture or computer use ergonomics. Chiropractic has also been shown to be safe in a recent study by ICPA.

The chiropractor in the video uses the ProAdjuster system which is a technique using a gentler chiropractic. While I personally do not use any technique system believing that everyone is different, I use many of the same components found in the ProAdjuster system such as an Activator instrument.

Chiropractor's perspective: "Queen of Snapchat," Katie May, dies from a stroke after chiropractic adjustment

Source: youcaring.com 
L.A. County Coroner recently ruled that model, Katie May, died as a result of a “neck manipulation by chiropractor" due to a brain infarction or stroke. It was deem an accident as result of a carotid artery blockage. Chiropractic adjustments to the upper cervical can move the vertebral artery so I am not sure how the carotid artery was affected. I am guessing the news articles are reporting the wrong artery being dissected. Ms. May fell during a photoshoot hurting her neck resulting in her seeking help from a LA chiropractor. She had more than one chiropractic adjustment before going to the hospital with symptoms of a stroke before dying. Is the fall to blame for the stroke or only the neck adjustment? Did they both contribute to the stoke?

Jack LaLanne's Legacy with Chiropractic

On January 23, 2011 at the age of 96, Jack LaLanne, the godfather of fitness, passed away due to pneumonia. With world records, a TV show, many honors and products such as the Glamour Stretcher and Power Juicer, Jack was also a champion of Chiropractic with his daughter Yvonne, a chiropractor in the SF Bay area, California. Jack has recently been involved with Southern California University of Health Sciences and their yearly Extravaganza symposium in 2008. Jack LaLanne's strong philosophy in health, fitness and nutrition are also strong principles with many chiropractors and his legacy will continue to be felt after he is gone.

Kinesio Tape & Olympic Beach Volleyball

What is that black tattoo on Kerri Walsh's right shoulder? It is called Kinesio Tex Taping which is an elastic taping used in chiropractic, rehabilitation and sports medicine. Developed 25 years ago by Dr. Kenzo Kase, it is now getting recognition and being used by top athletes such as Lance Armstrong, Serena Williams, David Beckam, Robby Ginepri and Justine Henin. Kinesio Tape works by giving support like a flexible brace and facilitates weak muscles with neurological awareness or proprioception. Kerri Walsh had a recent rotator cuff surgery last November. NBC reported that she uses the black shoulder tape for better circulation and her shoulder pain.

Harder to see with the beige Kinesio Taping, Martins Plavins used Kinesio Taping in the huge upset against the US team of Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser. Did Kinesio Tape give Walsh and Plavins an unfair advantage to both win? :) Maybe not, but it pleases me to know that I something I use to help my patients is trusted by top athl…
