One of my colleagues sent me this video of our gang comedies (the little rascals for all you baby boomers) that shows one of the kids giving an adjustment fixing another kids neck. Years ago, as a kid I saw this one and the clip is quite funny. Check it out at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eB7PL6m8CFg.
Many of you saw the olympic’s and you may not realize that the United States had two chiropractors delivering care to athletes, with one being Blaze Toto from East Brunswick. We attended National college together and being from neighboring towns, cross paths regularly at sports council meetings. Chiropractors had been involved officially in the Olympics since 1980’s because the athletes wanted them present. There are many people out there who still do not trust chiropractors to evaluate certain musculoskeletal problems however those who are really good are in demand and athletes know that it is the most effective way to take care of an injury. At the olympic’s it is a kind of health care nirvana because everyone is an equal part of the team. Chiropractors, physical therapists and orthopedic doctors work hand in hand with trainers and other medical professionals. Food for thought considering in the real world, competition and posturing is often considered before the ultimately, the patient is sent to those who are most cost effective. In NJ, this is most true in our workers compensation system that badly needs change and full inclusion of chiropractors since they have been shown to save money… lots of it and get people back to work faster.
