Accidents, injuries and chiropractic

Our world can be a pretty dangerous place; many of us have experienced a traumatic brush (or collision) with reality. And although accidents may be unavoidable, much of the pain and suffering from them may, in many cases, be avoided with chiropractic care.

Every trauma has the potential to cause subluxations: abnormal stress in your body that upsets balance, and impinges, "pinches," stretches or compresses your nerves. Subluxations can affect your muscles, organs, discs, bones and brain and cause body malfunction. (1)

Chiropractic specializes in locating and correcting subluxations.

Many times chiropractic patients have discovered that the cause of their present complaint was a childhood fall or even birth trauma. Common post- accident symptoms include spine, head, face and extremity pain. (2) Even personality changes may occur after an accident or trauma ("post-traumatic stress disorder"). (3)

It is an unfortunate fact that over half of the victims of auto accidents never fully recover; they are still in pain, with disability and other constant reminders that they were hurt and haven't fully healed. Anyone who has been in an accident or trauma, whether mild or serious and no matter how long ago, should see a chiropractor to have their body checked for subluxations. A chiropractic adjustment can make the difference between life and death, between a life with pain, disability and sickness and a life of true recovery, activity and accomplishment.


Human breast milk cannot be duplicated. It is the perfect food for a baby’s growth, development and immunity. It provides immunologic protection; it has been shown to contain secretory IgA antibodies, numerous cytokines and growth factors and the exact amount of proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antivirals, antibacterials and anti-allergens needed at their given stage of development.

No formula can ever do that.

The benefits of breastfeeding include: decreased ear infections; decreased gastroenteritis; lower risk of obesity, asthma and crib death (SIDS); reduction in diabetes; protection against certain types of cancer; and improved cognitive development. (4)

There are also benefits for the mother (compared with those who bottle-feed their babies) such as increased weight loss, decreased breast cancer and decreased ovarian cancer. (5)

Questions and answers about chiropractic

Question: What does the D.C. after a chiropractor’s name mean?

Answer: D.C. stands for Doctor of Chiropractic.

Question: Do chiropractors go to medical school?

Answer: Chiropractors go to Chiropractic school. There they learn about the human body and especially how the structural system operates in health and disease and how to locate and correct subluxations (nerve stress caused by structural distortions).

Aluminum in vaccines linked to brain disease

Research conducted by neuroscientist Chris Shaw, Ph.D.’s team shows a link between the aluminum used in vaccines and Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease).

In the course of his research Shaw was surprised that although aluminum has been put in vaccines for over 80 years no research has been done showing that it is safe.

In his laboratory mice that were injected with the aluminum put in vaccines exhibited symptoms of Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and Lou Gehrig's disease. During an interview Dr. Shaw said, "No one in my lab wants to get vaccinated… We weren't out there to poke holes in vaccines. But all of a sudden, oh my God – we've got neuron (nerve) death!"

Did you know?

Men and women usually took baths only twice a year (May and October). Women kept their hair covered, while men shaved their heads (because of lice and bugs) and wore wigs.

Wealthy men could afford good wigs made from wool. They couldn't wash the wigs, so to clean them they’d carve out a loaf of bread, put the wig in the shell, and bake it for 30 minutes. The heat would make the wig big and fluffy, hence the term 'big wig... ' Today we often use the term 'Big Wig' if someone appears to be or is powerful and wealthy. 

Traditional eating – eat good fats

Myth: Low cholesterol is good for you.

Truth: Low cholesterol (below 170 mg/dL) is linked to mood disorders, depression, stroke, violence, suicide and violent deaths. (6)
Researchers reported: “Low levels of cholesterol are associated with increased tendency for impulsive behaviour and aggression and contribute to a more violent pattern of suicidal behavior ... increased risk of suicide.” (7)

A great use for honey this summer

Honey can actually be used as an antiseptic, like a natural Neosporin®. Because of its many antimicrobial properties, it can be used to treat wounds and even burns.

Researching Chiropractic

Chiropractic clinical case histories have been a regular feature of our patient newsletter since its inception. There seem to be no limit to the health problems that respond to chiropractic care. How many people suffering, on drugs, facing a life of limitation could be helped by chiropractic care? Probably most of them.

Anxiety and high blood pressure. The patient was a 60-year-old male with medically diagnosed anxiety and hypertension. A thorough history and exam were performed. Subluxations were determined through static and motion palpation, bilateral weight scales and posture analysis.

A medical doctor had evaluated him 15 years prior and diagnosed hypertension (170/110 mm Hg.) as the cause of his symptoms. He was prescribed 20mg of lisinopril and 10mg of hydrochlorothiazide per day.

He was also diagnosed with anxiety and was prescribed medications which included 150mg of Wellbutrin® and 10mg of Lexapro® per day.

When he entered the chiropractic office he had been on anxiety-reducing medications for over 20 years. Until five years earlier the patient had previously self-medicated with alcohol and drugs.

Subluxations were located and corrected at: C1 on the right, C4 and C5 on the left, C6 on the right and T2, T4, T12, L3 and sacrum on the left.

After six months of care, his blood pressure was 128/80 mmHg. His MD took him off all prescription medications for both anxiety and hypertension. The patient also noted his energy level and ability to function had improved. (8)

Placenta previa and breech presentation. The patient was a 32-year-old in her 32nd week of pregnancy. Her midwife and obstetrician referred her for chiropractic care after ultrasound imaging confirmed breech fetal positioning and placenta previa. The consensus by both birthing professionals was that vaginal birth was unlikely. 

The patient was cared for with a combination of procedures including Webster Technique with successful outcomes. A later ultrasound showed that the fetus assumed a normal vertex position and the placenta moved more than 3 cm away from the opening of the cervix so there was no more placenta previa. (9)

Fibromyalgia. A 32-year old female suffering with extreme fatigue, pain, and depression due to fibromyalgia began chiropractic care. She had been ill for two years experiencing a rapid decline in health and vitality.

After a case history, physical examination and chiropractic evaluation it was determined that she had a subluxation of the C1 (atlas) vertebra.

The patient received chiropractic care, coming in for 41 visits over six months. She was adjusted eight times over the course of care and reported a complete resolution of her fibromyalgia and related symptoms. (10)

Success Story

Sciatic Nerve Pain

My pain started suddenly around the 1st of July 2014. I could barely walk, could only stand for 5-10 minutes. My only relief was to sit or lie down. The pain was so excruciating that I went to the ER. X-rays were done to reveal that I had sciatic nerve pain.

I went to my G.P. who referred me to physical therapy. After weeks of PT, there was some relief. I requested an MRI be done. When that was finally approved, it revealed that I have Spinal Stenosis. So, I saw a spine specialist who advised that I had 3 choices: surgery, shots, or do nothing. My decision was to do nothing but see Dr. Horning. Dr. Horning’s approach is Advanced Biostructural Correction (ABC) and some supplements.

Today, I can stand and walk without the nearly unbearable excruciating pain. I still have pain but very tolerable. I can now do all of my yard and gardening work without unbearable pain. I will soon resume doing my automotive maintenance and repair work. For the most part, I have my life back!!!
