I hope some of the DP friends

I hope some of the DP friends here can benefit by what I discovered on this topic. Recently I had, for the first time, the most intense sciatic pain that I could not find any comfortable position that relieved the pain. It was getting worse and worse over the course of a few days and laying down was the most painful, so I was having difficulty sleeping. I didn't know what I was going to do and was thinking about going to a chiropractor and was having my husband massage and karate chop me in all kinds of crazy ways because I was desperate to get at the pain which was too visceral to reach. So, I was agonizing about what to do and then in the mail comes this gizmo (a portable home ultrasound device $30)I had ordered for another issue, plantar fascitis that I was dealing with for the last 2 years-hoping to experiment to get rid of that. I ripped the package open, plugged it in, and put it on a few areas along the sciatica for 3 minutes each area. At first it seemed like it might have helped just a tad. I applied it again the same way 2 more times that day and by night all pain was 100% gone and never came back. By the way, the gizmo also stopped my plantar fascitis dead in its tracks and has not returned. I highly recommend this cheap device for anyone suffering with any sort of deep pain, muscle pain, bone spurs, calcifications, etc.

I initially was curious about it because I read that researchers have been growing brand new teeth in subjects with missing permanent teeth and did so by regularly applying very small ultrasound devices on the gums over the area. It got me thinking how therapeutic ultrasound might be for muscle and joint conditions- and was surprised to see that there was actually cheap hand held models available. So I bought one to try it out. I am now starting to think that my problem in my feet was caused by bone spurs and that the unit breaks it up...which sort of goes along with everything I have been researching about K2 and calcium...but that is another story.

What a great story, Victoria.

What a great story, Victoria. Thank you for it.

You mentioned regrowing teeth. That's amazing. Almost a year ago I came across that topic. I saw a video on YouTube where two students attending college in Canada created a device using ultrasound to regrow teeth. The local news there reported it and said the students sold their device to a company. Great. So much for that device. But maybe not. Which device do you have and is it the one used to regrow teeth? If it isn't, what device is the one that regrows teeth?

Because of your helpful comment, I'm going to return the favor in recommending these few books:

1) Root Canal Cover-up, George Meinig, DDS, a founder of American Association of Endodontists (who are root canal dentists). This book summarizes and briefly expands on the 1,174 page, 25-year research compilation "Dental Infections, vols. 1 and 2" by Weston A. Price, DDS, the first research director of the American Dental Association, the changed name from National Dental Association. Price's work hasn't seen the light of day in dental schools at any time after its publication. This work of Price's, Meinig's book and other truthful dental books are at ppnf.org.

2) Beyond Amalgam, Susan Stockton. An information packed, practical short book worth much more than what Stockton sells it for. This book is unique because where other nonmainstream dentistry books flit about jawbone cavitations, Beyond Amalgam is all about jawbone cavitations whose primary cause is dentistry. Visit her website too. Lots of info on it. Her pen name is Suzin Stockton, explaining why you'll see Suzin on some of her books.

3) The Roots of Disease, Robert Kulacz, DDS, and Thomas Levy, MD and JD, forwarded by actor and voice actor James Earl Jones.

4) Solving MS, Hal Huggins, DDS. This book, his latest one, I believe, consists of a chapter on jawbone cavitations and talks about them sporadically throughout the book. His other books mentioned such cavitations a few times and were without a chapter on them.

If you have questions, just ask 'em. Again, thank you, Victoria.

How to Handle POLICE STATE Encounters

1901. Marl Twain, Osteopath Appears at Public Hearing

MARK TWAIN, OSTEOPATH The New York Times, February 28, 1901

Wants to Try Everything That Comes Along - Adam, He Says, Was Unjustly Criticised.

Special to The New York Times

ALBANY, Feb. 27. - With Mark Twain and Will Carleton advertised as "top liners," the hearing before the Assembly Committee on Public Health today upon the Seymour bill to license osteopaths drew a big audience to the Assembly Chamber. Mr. Carleton did not speak, but Mark Twain did. For nearly an hour he had his hearers laughing.

The New York County Medical Society, which is opposing the bill, was represented at the hearing today by a formidable delegation. Among the speakers for the society were Dr. Elliot Harris, Dr. Floyd Crandall, Dr. Frank Van Fleet, Dr. Charles N. Dowd, Dr. Henry D. Didama, Regent of the Medical University of Syracuse, and Jacob Bolin, the President of the New York Society of Masseurs. Assemblyman Julius Seymour, the author of the bill; Attorney Edward Coleman, and Mason W. Presley, a Philadelphia osteopath, were the speakers in support of the bill.

In his speech Dr. Van Fleet made some caustic personal references to Mark Twain and to Assemblyman Seymour. He said: "One of the reasons which are given why this should be passed is that Mark Twain favors it. Mark Twain is a very funny man. He writes humorous books. People read them and roll over on the floor with laughter. But no one ever takes Mark Twain seriously. We he returned from abroad recently, Mark Twain referred to the American flag as a dishonored flag. The people did not take his utterance seriously. If they had they would have mobbed him, and justly, too." Mr. Clemens was sitting within a few feet of Dr. Van Fleet when the doctor took his fling at him, but he showed no signed of being disturbed by the criticism....

Chiropractics are great but,

Resetting the alignment is only temporary and will return to its bad position depending on your muscle definition, posture, and will to change it.

My Father is a Massage Therapist and a Physical Therapist Assistant, while cracking your back and fingers will help, its all about the muscles.

thanks for sharing Mark

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

I think it depends

In my case, a cervical vertebrae was knocked a bit out of place. My range of motion in my neck was zero. I was in terrible pain. I had to have someone drive me to the chiropractor because of the range of motion problem. He took a quick x-ray (which is how I found out what the problem was) and then did two quick adjustments. The pain was about 50% relieved and my range of motion came back 100% instantly, and after another day, the pain was completely gone. I never had to go back (this was about 10 years ago). The visit, including the x-ray, cost about $125. I cringe to think what would've happened had I gone to an M.D. with the problem (no doubt, neck surgery would have been recommended).

Your story is illustrates why

Your story is illustrates why medicine -- and everything else -- should be decentralized BUT that if centralized medicine continues, it should do so without insurance being (more?) involved in chiropractics and other "alternative" therapies. What is uninsured is what is OUTSIDE the system, awaiting the thinking person to use. :) What functions in freedom requires no system, no collectivist environment. Anyway, I'm glad you're well, Missy. Good story and thank you for it.

Ding! Ding!

Now some good, relevant information is coming in!

In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.


I am 25 and I ache every morning from playing too many youth sports. I used to visit a chiropractor to get an alignment but I would always hurt more after than I did before!

This is because of scar tissue and knots in my muscles from injury and not stretching enough.

95% of headaches are caused by muscle tension in the back of the neck.
95% of numbness is due to a pinched nerve by a swollen muscle.
95% of any body ache is due to low blood circulation from tight muscles.

Chiropractics will not fix anything permanently without a personal intent to maintain a better posture and lifestyle.

Many of you have hit on the problem without saying what it is. I'm happy to see you guys talk about this therapeutic. It, as acupuncture, restores what must be restored to eliminate pain and begin healing: blood flow.

Chiropractic is quackery, although it often works

accupuncture is quackery, although it often works. surgery can be quackery, although again, it often works.

So many of the ailments that people suffer from have pyschosomatic origins. The guy in this video was "cured" not just from his initial adjustment as he admits, but from developing a new routine to prevent the problems that led to his ailment -he changed his psyche.

In the 70's and early 80's stomach ulcers were an epidemic - until the word got out that they were caused by stress; once people were aware that stomach ulcers were psychosomatic they all but disappeared.

Dr. John E. Sarno M.D. wrote a series of amazing books around the subject of healing back pain. Sarno was the head of surgery at a prestigious NYC Hospital who was dissatisfied by the results of back surgery, he started being able to predict who would benefit from surgery based on his perception of the patient's personality. Sarno no longer performs surgery for back pain. He has achieved a 90% recovery by performing pyscho-ananlysis and never even touches the patient.

I had heard of this and bought his book to give to a friend about to have back surgery - I suspected her back pain was do to stress. Her surgery was moved up and I received the book too late to give to her.

Because I was facinated by the subject I read the book. He started chapter one with case studies, the first case study described my friend to a tee ("maybe you're a woman in her mid-thirties not satisfied with her boyfriend but receiving pressure from your mother and friends to marry him".) Now at the same time I had "real" lingering back pain caused by sleeping on a bare hardwood floor next my dog for the last month of his life.

Reading this book was a physically painful experience for me as I learned that my back pain was in fact psychosomatic, caused by the anger of losing my dog. Pains shot all through my body as I learned and dealt with my anger. My previously debilitating back pain went completely away before I finished the book.

Doctors are no more engaging in a conspiracy than the chiropractors or the accupuncturist. What each of them do often works. I suggest spending the $14.95 to see if just reading Sarno might work for you.

You used a very poor analogy

You used a very poor analogy with stomach ulcers that actually weakens the point you were attempting to make. Stomach ulcers have proven to be caused by H. Pylori, a bacteria (though stress certainly weakens the immune system.) It is very likely that muskuloskeletal disorders may also be proven to derive from non-pyschosomatic origins such as nerve impingement, muscle strain, cartilage and bone degeneration, misalignment, etc.

It is true too that stress both mental and physical can create intense muscle cramping when your muscle holds in a contracted position. Thus lowering stress or taking a muscle relaxant may sometimes help in those cases. But when there is a more extensive cause of the pain then other remedies are in order.

Malpractice insurance: Chiropractor low vs Surgeon high

Chiropractor malpractice insurance is remarkably low. Oft they use their own hands w/o tools.

Surgeon work uses knives. The Hippocratic oath requires firstly, "Do no harm." A dilemma.

Quackery is not limited to any profession. Man is practiced at such art. I believe it is limited to man. Other animals seem to concur.

Insurance is high on believing that you're...

he had it for years, he remembers he had ear infections even as a kid... but sitting on computer is the cause :D

I'm a hard core chiropractic fan...

If you tried going to see a chiropractor & had a bad experience, all I can say is try again. Find another one.

You know what else works? Massage therapy. Massages may sound like a luxury (even a joke to some people) but an experienced massage therapist can change your life.

In my experience, a massage will relax you & make it easier for the chiropractor to do his/her thing.

Another must-have.....access to a swimming pool. This goes especially for seniors. My mom had a stroke & got back 90% of her mobility by exercising in pools. It takes all the weight off of you, easing pain and allows you exercise comfortably & get things moving again.

Monopoly Powers and the AMA

The American Medical Association and others did their darndest to prevent Chiropractors from practicing. They used smear campaigns and all the other same techniques that were used against Ron Paul and his delegates, including getting the government to intervene.

Licencing is a state regulated issue, so thankfully, in California and other places, chiropractors slowly overcame these barriers, largely by being miraculously successful often enough.

In the meantime, in California, chiropractors take more hours of training in diagnosis than M.D.'s are required to take. Inspires confidence, doesn't it? (They also have more hours required in training for pregnancy concerns and reading x-rays, I believe. I haven't met one, yet, who wasn't interested in nutrition.)

I think the practice is on safe ground, now, because insurance companies now cover their services. They wouldn't do that if the treatments caused more problems than benefits.

Lastly, malpractice insurance covers both things a doctor does and things a doctor fails to do. Chiropractors pay much less for their malpractice insurance than other doctors. This is not because insurance companies are being charitable toward them.

From my experience, I've made my chiropractor my primary source of health advice, generally, and I'm not on any medication (at 57). I do, however, think you can improve results of chiropractic (and avoid all doctors better) with energy medicine techniques such as acupuncture, Lifewave patches, or better, yet, EFT, a tapping technique, which deals with blocked energy or stress that can cause old physical habits to keep coming back. (Of course, the FDA has a lot to say about what they can't claim, and big-pharma doesn't teach these in med-school.)

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

The banksters stole your healthcare over 100 years ago


They got into pharmaceutical manufacturing, established the AMA and the first "medical schools" and then proceeded to dictate the curriculum, which was totally biased to pharmaceuticals and away from natural care, such as chiropractic. The very fact that anything OTHER than prescribed drugs are called "alternative medicine" is testimony to how well they marginalized all the healing that is done without a drug and its side effects which there is a pill for...

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Iv'e tweaked my back a few times in my life

to the point where I was unable to carry on normal daily activities. So I'd go to the chiropractor and a few snap crackle pops later, good as new.

Can it be a miracle cure for varying ailments? Maybe. Like Mark says the spinal cord is jam packed with nerves. Tweak just one and you may have some problems. A chiropractor can help adjust and relieve that. But it is a double edged sword. A chiropractor can also make things worse if he is not careful or trained properly, or if the patient has some other conditions that would make adjustments a bad idea, such as a bulged disk that might rupture like Mark mentioned in the video. So it's something to be done with caution and research, like all things, and with a good chiropractor.

All my experiences were positive ones and my pain was relieved almost instantly and I could function again. Results of course will vary from person to person.

reedr3v's picture

Good video. One more component to

backing up chiro. care is a healthy natural, non-inflammatory diet. For many people this is key to retaining alignment and muscle relaxation. Magnesium is especially important, and green veggies.

Oh my; I don't know where to begin

The guy is right and the guy is DEAD WRONG. Can chiropractic help with what this gentlement claims? Absolutely. Is it an cure all treatment? ABSOLUTELY NOT!!

Let's take his claim step by step:

This person claims that he couldn't breathe thru his nose and had constant sinus and ear ache problems.

It's true this person's, foreward head posture (FHP) is a postural anomoly that can cause many symptoms e.g. headaches, neck pain, shoulder pain, temporal mandibular joint disfunction (TMJ), and could very well lead to something like an obstruction of the sinus- which would make ear infections more likely.

Being that he mentioned that he's had ear infections regularly as a child, it's highly possible that this condition precipidated the events of being on the computer for extended periods of time during his adult life. I presume that perhaps there was trauma at birth, or possibly during his earlier years; by means of direct trauma (fall out of crib, doctors may have used forceps to "aide" in delivery) or indirect (serious illness).

So yes, when you have an atlantoccipital/atlantoaxial restriction (cervical vertbrae C1 & C2) this could lead to more restrictions within the cranium- specifically the sphenoid bone which sits atop the maxilla. Over time as this goes untreated, compounded with more physical/emotional/environmental trauma the condition could get worse- headaches, chronic sinus infections etc...

And yes, a skilled chiropractor can adjust said bones (C1-C2) and cause great relief; however, there are other systems within the body and to flat out discredit modalities like Physical Therapy is displaying his Docs insecurities and turf wars that insue between two or more modalities. Every modality seems to want to be the only modality to insurance bill for certain treatments. Did your doctor tell you that PTs can manipulate the spine? Pts can do up to a grade 4 velocity manipulation while chiros can do a grade 5. Or how PTs and Accupuncturists are battling over the turf of needling techniques? Or how myofacial release performed by a skilled massage therapist is way more profound than a chiro or PT but massage therapists can't bill health insurances because chiro and PT lobby's kept them out of the loop (you know step on the little guy syndrome).

Many chiropractors are too egotistical (like many MDs, and PTs) to actually refer out to other skilled practitioners, including massage and other manual medicine practitioners.

Now here is where Chiros go wrong~ most usually perform high velocity manipulations and leave out so many other modalities like applied kinesiology, proper stretching and stregthening exercises which usually only complement the symptoms and not the cause.

The cause like he says towards the end of the video are associated with posture: adaptively shortened tissues (you're on the computer all day so your pecs are tight rounding your shoulders which puts your head forward (tight anterior neck muscles) and consequentially weakens your postural or phasic muscles e.g. rhomboids, trans abdominus, multifidus; thusly, creating stretch weakened muscles.

If muscles are not lengthened (massage, rolfing, manual therapy, structural integration), then you can get all the chiropractic or PT you want, but it's all gonna go right back to muscle memory and the posture you hold. So you are gonna spend alot on $30-50 treatments (which is not $30-50 because that's a copay you're paying set up by the AMA lobby via insurance billing).

Furthermore, the musculoskeletal system is a secondary system. All symptoms from your secondary systems are related to your primary systems which would be your CNS/autonomic nervous system. This system is best addressed through your organs. Basically, just as C1-C2 could get restricted impeding the optimual health of the CNS, your organs, like your liver, could also have soft-tissue restrictions causing dis-ease/un-ease at the location of nerve inervation within the spinal column/cord (aka CNS).

For example, due to a restriction perhaps in the suspensatory ligaments of the liver (let's say angular ligaments of the liver) which inervate into thoracic vertebrea T7, one may experience right shoulder and neck pain.

So you can go to the chiro and he could manipulate T7 and C4,5,6 all week and you'd feel better for a while, but if that liver is restricted you will have repeated discomfort in your neck and shoulder. Which means that the chiropractor should refer out if he/she can not manipulate said tissues. And, believe me, many do not have the manual skills to address soft tissue needs (that's why they have massage therapy in their offices).

I would like a chiropractor to explain to me how would you treat sciatica if you were in the 11 percentile of the population where the sciatic nerve runs through the piriformis muscle? There are four anatomical variences in humans as to the positioning of the sciatic nerve. In my opinion, you would have to treat specifically the piriformis muscle, but getting your hands on the viscera: Large Intestine, Bladder, Prostate, or Uterus would also have a relieving effect.

Moral of the story; skilled chiropractors, orthopedic manual therapists, visceral manipulation practitioners, rolfers, massage therapists, structural integrationist bodyworkers, accupuncture are all great modalities~ BUT IF YOUR PRACTITIONER ACTS LIKE THEY HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS OR THEIR MODALITY OF CHOICE IS THE BE ALL END ALL THEN LOOK FOR ANOTHER PRACTITIONER.

Great practitioners should refer out to other modalities: see above.

Note: The business of Health Care (NOT SICK CARE) is tough because if you are skilled, you basically are putting yourself out of business because your referrals and your skill actually helps people get better; unfortunately, many of us suck at marketing (speaking for myself specifically).

If you live in Boulder, CO, email me if you want some bodywork.

Thanks for a great

Thanks for a great discussion. I wish I could find a local doctor with your approach. I've had for the past 9 years since I was pregnant with my first child, a condition on both my arms and sometimes shoulders, that is extremely itchy and burning. It seems to come from below, as if from the nerves and is as intense as poison oak. At first it cannot be seen but after a time small red bumps appear but they cannot be expressed. The condition goes away in the winter and appears to be affected by heat, but not necessarily sun exposure. I have seen several dermatologists and none have been helpful and have merely offered hydrocorotosone which has not been effective. I am beginning to think this may be a nerve issue and may actually be pain misinterpreted as itching. I think this because sometimes I can feel a very low level burning pain radiating down my arm into index fingers. Is there any type of practitioner that I should think about consulting that may be better able to help me than a dermatologist?

Dear Doc, Have You Heard of Prolotherapy?

About 10 years ago I experienced inflammation of the shoulder and elbow. I tried pain medication and other physical therapeutic modalities but the inflammation would return. I did some reading on prolotherapy (see: http://www.prolotherapy.org/what-is-prolotherapy/) and visited a doctor in Buffalo, NY who specializes in prolotherapy treatment (Dr. Tim Speciale). After four treatments the pain was gone.

The treatment consists of a series of local injections at the pain site using a irritant solution. The irritant stimulates regrowth of tissue in the affected area. The injections feel like bee stings of short duration. There was some swelling at the injection site but it subsided after a few days. Dr. Speciale is a licensed osteopath and has been practicing prolotherapy for over 10 years. Here is his web site if you have an interest (see: http://www.drtimspeciale.com/about/ ).

I think chiropracty in combination with other treatments are very effective in addressing many musculoskeletal disorders. I believe the important thing in seeking pain relief is to read as much as possible about complementary methods that are alternatives to standard western medical treatment (i.e., drugs, physical therapy, surgery).

Blew out my knee twice playing soccer

First time ACL rupture reconstructed. Rehabbed it after surgery, went back to playing, and blew out my PCL; never reconstructed it (PCL) Docs and surgeons said I don't have a chance to play ball again: WRONG. EPIC FAIL.

Had prolotherapy on the PCL and been playing soccer ever since~ never let a doc tell you that you can't. Especially if you want it bad enough. Prolotherapy is a saving grace for many (non)surgeries.

If you haven't had prolotherapy just know that it effen hurts like a son of a gun, and that was only in the knee. I can't imagine the pain that an injection into the hip, shoulder, or SI joint would feel like.

http://www.tomravinmd.com/ this is the guy that treated my knee he's awesome, very knowledgeable and has a great bedside manner. Good info on this site.

Hi Holistic

I really, really like your comment. This is exactly the kind of information I am looking from a practitioner. You seem to be very knowledgeable about these things.

How can one best manage their health in this kind of health care environment? I find it extremely difficult to know who to see for what.

By the way, what kind of practitioner are you?

Ron Paul - Intellectual hero

My spouce worked in the OR for years...

and was always told that bone crackers were quacks.
Well, after living with a debilitating issue for 3 years and after spending tons of money with Mayo, et al...to include a TV camera up the nose, MRIs, etc...my spouce was told there is no physical problem, that it's psychosematic...Here's a perscription for Prozac.
Went to a chiropractor in town who did an examination for 40 minutes (no x-rays needed). He took 5 minutes to explain his findings...then he made 12-15 minutes of adjustments...Spouce walked out symptom-free after suffering through "normal" medicine techniques for 3 years! Cost: $35.00 Went back once a month for a while just for good measure...hasn't been an issue for 7 years now!
We are now solid believers...HOWEVER...just like auto mechanics or surgeons, they're all different and have varying degrees of experience, some are better than others...do some asking around and research first!!!

Silence isn't always golden....sometimes it's yellow.

A year ago I had a horrendous shoulder problem

I had a calcific tendonitis problem. It was painful. The hospital recommended surgery to take it out if the problem persisted. I went to a chiropractor and had ultrasound therapy for 5 weeks, and at a cost of $800 (Insurance did not cover until I was over 1k). This completely fixed the problem, along with adjustments and now the bad shoulder from a year ago feels better than the other shoulder that never had an injury.
