Can Alzheimer’s Disease Be Prevented?

Chiro.Org Blog: With such striking epidemiologic examples, numerous lifestyle factors are now being taken seriously by researchers and clinicians as potential avenues for AD prevention, particularly given the current lack of disease-modifying treatments — in other words, the lack of a cure. Couple these insights with advances in neuroimaging and other biomarker tests that allow for early disease identification, and it appears we have at least some control over our brain health. But is lifestyle modification enough to actually prevent or significantly delay AD? Will adopting healthy habits heed results, or are other factors such as genetic influences standing in the way?

The Prevalence and Progression of Neck and Back Pain in Children Over Time

Chiro.Org Blog: It is well known that back pain (BP) is a common and costly problem in the general population. Previously, BP in children was considered rare and a sign of a potentially serious disorder [1,2]. Today, according to a recent systematic review, the general opinion would be that BP, including low back pain (LBP), mid back pain (MBP) and neck pain (NP), starts already early in life to accelerate during the early teens up till early adulthood [3] and that its presence in young age is a precursor for BP also in adulthood [4].

Downward Dog Gets Thumbs Up From California Judge

Chiro.Org Blog: BRAVO! to California for allowing a San Diego-area school district to introduce Yoga as a twice weekly, 30-minute class. YAY! Although some parents were miffed because they thought it promoted Eastern religion (???) a federal Judge ruled in favor of the school. […]
