Subject: C2 Vertebrae – Muscle Atrophy Question: In 2001, I fractured my C2 vertebrae in two places, as well as my skull in three. In the past couple of years, I have noticed that in my right side, I am experiencing muscle atrophy of my neck, shoulder, arm and hand. I am wondering, what do I do? Will it continue to shrink, or is there any way I could fix it? Any kind of information you can give me, or any websites or resources you could refer me to would be greatly appreciated. Answer: You need to get checked out immediately. Atrophy is serious, and can indicate something far more insidious. I don’t want to scare you, but I do want you to schedule an appointment with your local neurologist ASAP!!!! As for online resources for your condition… it may be better to actually get evaluated instead of figuring it out on your own. Havinng an actual diagnosis would be far better than guessing about it on the net. If y0ou need help finding a neurologist please access me through my website, www.dynamicclinic.com. Dr. Peter Carr

The Ambulance Down in the Valley Joseph Malins (1895) This is a great poem for chiropractors! ‘Twas a dangerous cliff, as they freely confessed, Though to walk near its crest was so pleasant; But over its terrible edge there had slipped A duke and full many a peasant. So the people said something would have to be done, But their projects did not at all tally; Some said, “Put a fence ’round the edge of the cliff,” Some, “An ambulance down in the valley.” But the cry for the ambulance carried the day, For it spread through the neighboring city; A fence may be useful or not, it is true, But each heart became full of pity For those who slipped over the dangerous cliff; And the dwellers in highway and alley Gave pounds and gave pence, not to put up a fence, But an ambulance down in the valley. “For the cliff is all right, if you’re careful,” they said, “And, if folks even slip and are dropping, It isn’t the slipping that hurts them so much As the shock down below when they’re stopping.” So day after day, as these mishaps occurred, Quick forth would those rescuers sally […]
Super exciting research. Apparently, there is a lot going on in fish that I wish would happen with humans. Regeneration of the spinal cord also occurs in possibly one of the coolest fish in the world, the black ghost knife fish, which not only regenerates the spinal cord, but swims using a single fin under them, http://www.kurzweilai.net/scientists-find-key-protein-for-spinal-cord-repair-in-zebrafish This study, if possible in humans, would allow an injection to someone with a spinal cord injury, and allow the reconnection of neurons, and therefore function to the cells “south” or caudal to the damage site. That means you could reverse paralysis and all the nastiness that goes along with it. Of all research that needs funding, this one is a no brainer. Literally, since the brain isn’t necessarily involved in the process!
If you haven’t heard the news in Seattle, there are a number of kids diagnosed with a very rare disorder called AFM. It’s pretty clear that when a lot of kids get rare neurological disorders at the same time, the first thing to look for is a common cause. In the case of these kids, the most likely cause is an enterovirus, which is a nice way of saying gut virus that we don’t know about. Gut viruses have a nasty way of introducing themselves into our nervous system and wreaking havoc there. A chiropractors solution to prevent these is to TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF… ie. eat right, get lots of sleep, and lastly, take care of your own gut. Having real, whole food in your system is vital for proper digestive health. Doing probiotics simply isn’t enough. Getting a daily dose of dirt, yes, I said dirt, into your gut is a pretty good thing. Eat your vegetables and stay tuned, we may discover the cause soon. The CDC is currently working on these cases to see what the commonality is. In advance of that, I would be very interested in seeing what these poor children’s diets […]
I’m a chiropractor and a chiropractic wellness and Dynamic Chiropractic Clinic is owned by me. I’ve determined to write a brief explanation of the chiropractic health doctrine. Chiropractic Doctors have great success with helping people become healthy or remaining so. Seattle Chiropractor revolves around a Vitalistic, holistic, and natural strategy to Health and Life. This Vitalistic, strategy that is holistic, and natural uses the Body’s natural ability to self heal and self control itself. This doctrine means that the Body already has everything cure, it needs to grow, and prosper in any environment. The Body is meant to be HEALTHY not ILL. Chiropractic focuses on bringing people back to health by treating causes not symptoms and keeping real health. We see the Body’s great power in everyday life from keeping the heart beating, digesting food, growing hair (or not;-), treating reductions, and the many other intelligent functions we do not even know about. The Body’s skill to do all this without our mindful support implies an inborn wisdom that is astonishing. My chiropractic care helps this wisdom by clearing any noise in the Back and Nervous System so the Body can do its job perfectly (the way it’s suppose to). […]

Learn how to grow your practice through the use of established marketing strategies to create new customers on a monthly basis. Strategies that are once arranged, and affordable and effective — largely hands off. Independent Health Care professionals, like any business, are like Opticians, Massage therapists, Nutritionists, Chiropractors and other independent office treatment specialists — they want a steady stream of new customers.

These suppliers consider that the human musculoskeletal systems must be in proper alignment in order for each individual to get optimum well being. A spinal column that’s misaligned will compress nerves and cause maladies and sickness in the individual.

In order to have the ability to perform chiropractic health care, a doctor must finish large quantity of instruction and training. This empowers them to become certified and licensed to diagnose and treat illnesses and disorders. This medical area came into existence soon before the start of the 20th century.
