Every Blog post is an announcement of new material that was just added to one of our many Sections.

I have been compiling (and archiving) peer-reviewed articles since early 1996, and to date we have thousands of Abstracts, and many hundreds of Full-Text articles on a wide variety of subjects.

When enough material, relating to a particular topic was collected, it was gathered into a new Topical Page in one of our many Sections.

Each Topical page is located in the Section most associated with that topic.
Thus, our Attention Deficit Page is located (is a part of) our Pediatrics Section You get the idea.

Almost ALL of our Sections contain some, or many Topical collections. The LINKS Section is the most extreme example, because it contains 83 different topical pages.

All of the following are “active” Sections that are constantly adding new (and important) materials:

Acupuncture Section
Alternative Healing Abstracts
Case Studies
Chiropractic Assistants Section
Chiropractic Research Section
Documentation Section
The LINKS
Medicare Information
Nutrition Section
Pediatrics Section
Radiology Section
Stroke and Chiropractic Page
What is the Chiropractic Subluxation

These other valuable Sections are “archival” in nature, and contain
valuable tools for you to use freely:

Chiropractic History Section
Free Images Page
New DC’s Page
Office Forms Page
R.C. Schafer’s Rehab Monographs
Search Section

ACA Researcher of the Year Explores Chiropractic’s Untapped Potential

As with all health professions, there are still many mysteries surrounding chiropractic care. Even though the practice is growing, the extent of its effects and applications are not yet well known.

However, research and awareness continue to expand. And the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) has recently honored Dean Smith, Miami University senior clinical faculty member, for his contributions with the 2018 George B. McClelland Researcher of the Year Award.

Upon receiving the news, “I was in disbelief,” Smith says. “Because when I look at the list of previous winners, they are the stars of our profession. So I couldn’t believe anybody would think of me in that kind of category. This definitely surpasses anything I could even dream about.”

As an exercise science specialist in Miami’s College of Education, Health and Society, Smith explores the intersections of chiropractic treatment, exercise, and human performance. His work also studies how various adjustments can affect speed, accuracy, and postural control, as well as the overall quality of movement.

More recently, Smith and his colleagues completed a lengthy study funded by the U.S. Department of Defense. By working with special operation forces, they examined how chiropractic can impact the response rates of both simple and complicated movements.

“We had them do 100 button presses and we looked at how fast they could do them before and after a series of treatments,” says Smith. “And the results essentially showed that that particular task really seemed to show the effect. People got faster.”

His additional projects have demonstrated that as little as 30 minutes of exercise can also improve movement time, and that lower body joint adjustments can improve the balance of healthy young adults.

And alongside his research, Smith also founded and hosts a podcast called Chiropractic Science, which brings together leading researchers and professionals to discuss current trends and new findings.

Congress Passes Legislation Expanding Veteran Access to Nondrug Chiropractic Services

Congress Passes Legislation Expanding Veteran Access to Nondrug Chiropractic Services

Arlington, Va. —   The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) announced today that Congress, with the passage of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018, has approved a plan to expand access to chiropractic’s nondrug approach to pain relief to veterans, many of whom suffer from back pain and other musculoskeletal conditions resulting from their service.

The Senate voted 65-32 to approve the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending package early Friday, less than 24 hours ahead of what would have been a government shutdown. The vote follows House passage, and the bill now heads to the president’s desk for his signature.

Supported by several veterans groups and championed in Congress by Sens. Jerry Moran (R-Kansas), Jon Tester (D-Mont.), Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), the approved language calls for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to expand the availability of chiropractic services at no fewer than two medical centers or clinics in each Veterans Integrated Service Network (VISN) by no later than Dec. 31, 2019, and at no fewer than 50 percent of all medical centers in each VISN by no later than Dec. 31, 2021.

The measure also, for the first time, codifies and broadens chiropractic services in the VA to include services provided by doctors of chiropractic under the Preventive Health Services and Medical categories — in addition to existing coverage under Rehabilitative Services — placing chiropractors in service categories previously closed to them.

Welcome to Soul Train

Welcome to Soul Train

The Chiro.Org Blog


I am a child of the 60s, and I fell in love with Soul Music, jazz and rock, and you usually heard them all mashed together on most radio stations, especially on underground FM stations.

Although this is a test of how our new blog format displays YouTube embedded music, it’s also a chance to display some of the best in Soul.

First off is Eddie Floyd’s 1967 hit “Knock On Wood”, but it’s served up by a musician few knew had a passion for Soul music. Hats off to Eric for doing a superior version that does great honor to the original.

Our next video combines 2 unique singers doing a rendition of “Stormy Monday”

 

In 1988, sax player David Sanborn was asked to create a one-hour music show to debut right after Saturday Night Live. WOW, talk about a hot lead-in!

This song should knock yer sox off!
