Celebrities Seek Chiropractic
A recent internet article gave some interesting information on one of the world's most famous faces. For years we've seen and heard in the news about the health challenges faced by Elizabeth Taylor. We've all seen photos of her in a wheel chair and heard about her battle with prescription drugs she had been taking for back pain. It was wonderful to read in this piece that she had sought out the care of a chiropractor with great results. She credits her chiropractor with rehabilitation and recovery from back problems. Miss Taylor is hardly the only celebrity to utilize chiropractic care to regain and maintain her health. Other chiropractic regulars include Warren Beatty, James Earl Jones, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jack Nicholson, Julie Andrews, Jane Seymour, and Mel Gibson.


WHY AM I SO TIRED
After a full day of physical work it is natural that we are comfortably tired. After a full night's rest, we awake ready to face a new day with vim, vigor and vitality.

But what would cause us to feel like we are running out of gas at three or four o'clock in the afternoon. Or worse yet, wake up almost as tired as when we went to bed?



Are You Locked Out of a Healthy Spine
Have you ever gotten up one morning, tried to stretch, and felt like some part of your back or neck was just "stuck"?

-or-

Have you ever leaned over to pick something up, stretched toward the item and your body just "stopped" before you completed the reach?

-how about-

You're in your swing playing tennis or golf, or going up for a layup on one side of the basket and your body just "quits" or "catches"?

It is sometimes easy to tell when it's time for a chiropractic visit. That "stuckness" that you feel may be a locked out vertebra. Bones in your spine may have, by injury, result of bad habit, or even genetic weakness, managed to move out of normal position. This effects normal body balance and function. This spinal fixation can create pain and muscle spasm, direct and indirect effects on the nervous system, and inflammation.




Scientist Found About Back Pain
In the last 20 years, the interest the scientific community has in chiropractic has increased as more and more people have chosen chiropractic care to improve their health. According to an extensive research paper entitled, "Chiropractic in the United States, Training, Practice, and Research" compiled using a grant from the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR); patient satisfaction is bringing people to chiropractic care. The AHCPR investigators realized that as soon as research got underway, studies immediately began to document the major roll chiropractic plays in the care of people with back and neck problems. These studies document high levels of patient satisfaction. Others show that satisfaction in chiropractic for back care is much higher in some aspects than satisfaction in conventional medical treatments.
