Arthrostim Chiropractic Tool

Arthrostim is an adjusting tool made by IMPAC Inc. and is only available to board certified Chiropractors. The arthrostim tool delivers 12-14 beats per second, in line with the body’s low betasomatomotor rhythm, producing motion and removing joint restrictions in the specific joint segments being targeted. It enables Chiropractors to adjust their patients in different positions, ways, and through active ranges of motion.

The video below demonstrates the arthrostim in action, visualized on X-ray.

Multi Radiance Medical® Laser

Clear Choice Chiropractic offers Multi Radiance Medical® Laser Treatments, check out this video to learn more.

Laser therapy is a well-studied method to eliminate chronic and acute pain. The goal of this non-invasive application is to deliver light energy to tissue needing treatment, which reduces pain and increases circulation.

Anchored in Science: The most optimal mechanism for laser treatment, providing maximum photonic density without hazardous thermal effect.

WHAT IS TRUE SUPER PULSING?
Do not confuse the “pulsing” of continuous wave lasers with the super pulsed technology of Multi Radiance lasers. Continuous wave “pulsing” is accomplished literally by “chopping the beam”, i.e., mechanically turning the laser on and off. This not only limits the power and depth of penetration offered by continuous wave lasers, it also encourages the body to adapt to its effects, limiting its treatment ability.

With Multi Radiance technology, you can super pulse up to 50,000mW of power which is more than most Class IV lasers, yet with a higher degree of safety. The laser and electronic technologies required to use super pulsed diodes are more advanced and the diodes themselves are more expensive than the continuous wave diodes. This is probably why most lasers in the North American market are low powered Gallium Aluminum Arsenide continuous wave lasers.

Super pulsed laser technology by Multi Radiance provides a safe and effective mechanism of energy delivery, combining three clinically proven light wavelengths for optimal tissue penetration: Red light at 660 nanometers, infrared light at 875 nanometers, and super pulsed laser at 905 nanometers.

The super pulsed laser provides high-powered light in hundred billions-of-a-second pulses to drive photons deep into the tissue without any harmful thermal effects.

The full 25 watts of power is being generated at the peak of the pulse, creating high energy density. In addition, the energy delivered at 905 nanometers is most efficiently absorbed by hemoglobin in the blood.

More hemoglobin with an increased circulation of blood means more oxygen supplied to the cells. This creates a beneficial systemic effect throughout the body.

When these specific wavelengths are combined, there’s a 100% increase in availability of light below the skin when compared to them being separately applied, confirming the presence of this Triple Cascade Effect, which was validated by the Pillars Paper Research.

Multi Radiance’s ability to vary the frequencies or speed at which light is delivered is extremely beneficial. Higher frequencies penetrate relatively shallow tissue and have an inhibiting effect on pain, whereas lower frequencies enable deeper tissue penetration and create a stimulatory effect on the tissue.

Constant use of the same frequency, as found in other continuous-wave lasers, causes tissue homeostasis and adaptation to the laser effects, and thus limits their therapeutic power.

With the LaserStim Emitter, the body responds and the impulse adjusts dynamically to the feedback from the electrodes that are in contact with the skin, engaging in a process of contact interaction that provides optimal treatment and also avoids the body’s natural tendency to accommodate to the stimulation.

This technology delivers more beneficial light to the target tissue as compared to Class IV lasers and the efficacy of Multi Radiance Medical Super Pulsed Laser technology has been validated in vitro, in vivo, in controlled laboratory experiments and in clinical practice. Our multiple wavelength technology has been clinically proven to provide optimal treatment, safe for all skin pigmentation, without raising skin temperatures to dangerous levels—unlike Class IV and Class 3B lasers.

Globally, Multi Radiance technology is utilized to treat a broad range of conditions and has approvals and clearances in the US, Canada, Australia and Europe.

Talking Chiropractic With Dr. Phil

 
Dynamic Chiropractic – April 9, 2012, Vol. 30, Issue 08

Talking Chiropractic With Dr. Phil

Dr. Fabrizio Mancini appears on popular daytime talk show to discuss chiropractic and the power of self-healing.

By Editorial Staff

On the morning of Feb. 23, 2012, history was made when Dr. Fabrizio Mancini, president of Parker University, was filmed for an episode of the “Dr. Phil” show at Paramount Studios in Hollywood, Calif. This was chiropractic’s first appearance on the popular daytime talk show, which is broadcast on 220 television stations across the U.S. and in more than 40 countries worldwide. Nearly 21 million viewers tune in weekly to hear the advice given by Dr. Phil McGraw, a clinical psychologist with 25 years in practice, and the show’s online presence is over 2 million unique viewers/followers per day.

The segment, which is scheduled to air on March 14, began with Dr. Phil introducing Dr. Mancini as his chiropractor for 14 years and author of the book The Power of Self-Healing: Unlock Your Natural Healing Potential in 21 Days! This introduction set the stage for Dr. Mancini to talk about his book and the concepts of chiropractic. He stated that “the only way to truly fulfill your life potential is to fulfill your health potential.” Dr. Mancini added that the difference between chiropractic and what he called the “sick care system” in the U.S. is that chiropractors “assume the patient is well, not sick.”

Dr. Phil reinforced this notion, telling viewers, “I got chiropractic treatment from you [Dr. Mancini] 2 or 3 times a week.” He went on to introduce his current personal chiropractor in Los Angeles, Dr. Patrick DeFazio, who was given an opportunity to talk more about chiropractic and how it can help relieve stresses on the body.

Dr. Phil with Dr. ManciniThe show took an interesting turn when a man named Joe was introduced and came out in a wheelchair. Joe was only 5 years old when a drunk driver crashed into the family car, killing his father and sister, leaving both his legs paralyzed. It was clear that Joe was still very hurt and angry about the accident, particularly toward the woman who had caused him and his family so much pain.

After hearing Joe’s story, Dr. Phil asked Dr. Mancini how he would approach Joe’s situation using the concepts from his book. Dr. Mancini talked about the importance of chiropractic care for Joe, as well as the need to forgive the drunk driver. (At this point, the conversation addressed Joe’s emotional and psychological issues, consistent with the typical focus of the program.)

As the show wound down, Dr. Phil thanked both Dr. Mancini and Dr. DeFazio for taking care of him over the years. He then thanked the audience and let them know they would each receive a copy of Dr. Mancini’s book, which elicited a huge cheer from the audience.

Dr. ManciniDr. Mancini outlines core elements of self-healing – physical, emotional and spiritual – on the “Dr. Phil” show.After the show, a number of people working on the set asked about how to find a local chiropractor or remarked how much they had learned about the value of chiropractic. This was in addition to the many members of the audience who talked about chiropractic and asked Dr. Mancini to autograph their copy of his book.

This was an important positive event for chiropractic. The audience heard about chiropractic, the wellness philosophy and that Dr. Phil sees his DC more than once a week. They were also taught that chiropractic can play a role in the health of everyone, including someone who is paralyzed. Once the show airs, a global audience will have the opportunity to learn about the power of chiropractic care.

Over the past nine years, the “Dr. Phil” show has received 21 Emmy nominations and won five PRISM Awards. In addition to generating more than 15,000 hours of television programming, Dr. Phil McGraw has authored six #1 New York Times best-sellers, published in 39 languages with more than 24 million copies in print.

Custom vs. Generic Orthotics

When a patient needs support, there are two choices to consider: custom-made or off-the-shelf? Numerous companies offer a variety of Off-the-Shelf Inserts to support and relieve the foot.

Unlike generic orthotics, Foot Levelers’ custom-made Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers are scientifically designed for the individual’s unique postural problems — not just problems with the feet. We believe that correcting imbalances in your feet, in addition to regular chiropractic adjustments, can properly align your spine and pelvis.

Stabilizers offer more than just short-term symptom relief. They also promote whole-body wellness for a lifetime. Take a look at the facts:

Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers

  • 3-arch support balances the feet, balances the body; also provides proper corrections for your specific condition
  • Patented Gait Cycle System® offers support through each phase of your gait
  • Promotes optimum posture and enhances chiropractic adjustments, resulting in longer-term symptom relief
  • Guaranteed to last or your money back
  • Custom made using 16 precise measurements based on digital images or impressions of your feet

Over-the-Counter

  • Only supports 1 arch, and often overcorrects causing more harm than good
  • Does not provide custom support throughout the gait cycle
  • Does not aid in correcting posture; really just a cushion designed to treat the symptom rather than the underlying problem
  • Durability is questionable so you may spend more money over time replacing them
  • Offers generic solutions for a set number of foot conditions, which likely do not address your specific needs

Ml830 Laser

Dr. Filner Writes on His Experience Practicing Pain Management with Low Level Laser Therapy

Abstracts From “Low Level Laser Therapy – A Clinician’s View”

By Bernard E. Filner, MD, Guest Editorial in Practical Pain Management October 2006

In his comprehensive and informative article in Practical Pain Management, Dr. Filner explains his status as a Board Certified Anesthesiologist and how and why he digressed into pain management by establishing the Chronic Pain Treatment Center in Rockville, Maryland.

Dr. Filner also explains how – in 2003 – he became familiar with MicroLight’s ML830® when he read an article in the Washington Post about the New England Patriots football team’s use of the ML830® during and before the team’s appearance in the Super Bowl. Becoming curious, Dr. Filner then downloaded all the research he found on MicroLight’s website and called Mike Barbour, MicroLight’s president, to arrange for a demonstration of how to perform laser therapy on seven patients Dr. Filner “recruited,” plus himself. (It seems that he had “extensive” trigger points in his neck and upper back in need of attention.)

Dr. Filner describes how he uses the ML830® for inactivating trigger points to reduce or eliminate pain, and how using the laser has changed the methodology of his practice, explaining three important findings in his evaluation of the ML830® for trigger point therapy.

He notes first that, although the laser is non-invasive and therefore involves no risk, the same skills that are necessary for traditional trigger point injection are required when using the laser because the laser beam follows a straight line (just like a needle) which must be aimed properly at each problematic trigger point. Second, the laser can introduce some longer-lasting effects than those obtained from traditional trigger point injections because certain unique local and systemic values are added when the laser is used. Third, unless the clinician is willing to take the time to do the job completely, including the time it takes to obtain a good patient history, do a proper physical examination, and test to find the problem, results from selecting the laser to treat a particular patient’s condition may not be as good as the clinician and the patient hope to have.

As of the time he wrote his article – in late 2006 – Dr. Filner had treated more than 11,000 trigger points in his patients, successfully inactivating all but four of them. He sees six to eight patients a day who have had painful conditions they have suffered from during the past six months and up to forty years.

Dr. Filner recommends the use of low-level laser therapy as a part of the proper “armamentarium” of every clinician who would successfully treat chronic pain.

Nutrition

We approach nutrition with an emphasis on scientific knowledge of diet and metabolism, and the individual needs of each patient. 

Our Number one choice and recommendation for a multivitamin/multimineral is Body Balance by LifeForce International. It contains a complete compliment of nutrients for all ages. Best of all it is a liquid making it easy to take each day and it actually tastes good! We also highly recommend their liquid calcium, glucoseamine, MSM and chondroitin products called OsteoProcare and Flexeoplus. Without a shadow of a doubt, this product has made the greatest impact on our patients conditions.  

 

Visit Life Force International for more details about this and many other great products LifeForce has to offer. 

CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO ON SEAWEED AND WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT  (BODY BALANCE IS MADE UP OF 9 DIFFERENT TYPES OF SEAWEED) 

Liquid Vs. Tablet 

The argument of liquid vs. tablet vitamins is best discussed against background knowledge of exactly what vitamins are and how they are assimilated into the body. The popularity of pills or capsules is basically due to their convenience and taste, but are the vitamins in a convenient form for the body to be able use efficiently? 

Vitamins are essential chemicals that take part in the chemical reactions of the body, and allow the processes of life to occur. They are not the bricks that build the body, but the substances that allow the bricks to be made and that allow the body to function as an organism. Without them there would be no human life,  so a regular intake of vitamins is essential!  

If you eat a good balanced diet then you will generally have an adequate intake of vitamins. However, few people belong to this group since most people do not have a balanced diet. Vegans, for example, cannot get Vitamin B12 from their diet, and therefore require a supplement. Pregnant women need a good intake of vitamins and the aged are particularly susceptible to vitamin deficiencies.  

 A typical diet of burgers and fast foods can lead to a vitamin deficiency, and again supplements are required by people who eat this typical ‘American diet’. The result of a vitamin deficiency is a general slowing down of the body’s chemical processes and metabolism, premature aging and the gradual appearance of specific conditions affecting the skin, the blood and other parts and organs of the body. For many, therefore, vitamin supplements are necessary to ensure proper nutrition. 

Some vitamins, such as vitamin C, folic acid and the various B vitamins are soluble in water and others are oil or fat soluble. The water soluble vitamins are flushed out of the body and must be regularly replaced while the fat soluble ones are stored by the body until needed. This presents us with the first problem: how often do we need to ingest each type of vitamin?  

Each person’s requirements are different, depending on age, sex, normal diet and any disability they might have. It is very important that these vitamins are taken regularly and not intermittently. They are not medicines but regular doses of substances essential for life, and as such should be taken at regular periods. The recommended doses are linked to the Recommended Daily Allowance, or RDA of each vitamin, and work best when taken for extended periods. A one-off dose will do little for you but regular doses over several weeks and months will make a difference to your general health and the way you age. 

Early vitamin supplements were generally not so much in the form of specific vitamins or mixtures, but of food sources known to be good for you. Castor oil and cod liver oil were good vitamin sources, and the vitamin supplement was taken in a natural form. Through time, tablets became popular due to their convenience, and capsules assumed popularity due to the taste of some unpopular forms of supplement such as the castor and cod liver oil many of us remember with distaste.  

Malt was also a popular supplement, especially in the 1940s and 50s when post war diets tended to be poor. Malt was an excellent source of the B vitamins, beta carotene and folic acid. It is generally accepted that vitamins are more easily assimilated into the body from natural sources than from manufactures sources, and this is one argument in favor of liquid supplements that come in a natural form.  

However, there are also liquids that are solutions of water soluble vitamins such as vitamin C, and others that are solutions of multivitamins. The oil soluble vitamins are present in these liquid supplements in colloidal form; that is, they are present as a suspension of very small particles in the carrier liquid.  

The argument for liquids is that they are more easily absorbed by the intestine into the body than solid pills. However, nutrients are absorbed into the body early on in the intestinal tract, and liquids pass through the body relatively quickly. How do we know that the vitamins have time to be fully absorbed? Solids, on the other hand, remain in the intestine for a much longer time. However, it is not the form they are in that is important, but the bioavailability, and liquids are more bioavailable than solids. They are more easily absorbed by the body.  

Experts generally agree that it is easier for the body to use vitamins in liquid form than in solid form. Liquids are also welcomed by those who find it difficult to swallow pills, both pills and capsules contain many materials other than the nutrient itself. Tablets contain waxes, fillers and binders to enable the pill to be formed. They can also contain sugars and artificial flavors and colors to make them look and taste more attractive, and other substances to help them break apart after swallowing.  

Capsules can be too large for some people to swallow, and even the non-gelatin type can form hard masses in the stomach that can be virtually indigestible. The gelatin capsules have moral significance for vegans and vegetarians and are also difficult to digest.  

Soluble or dispersible powders are an alternative to tablets and liquid supplements. The powder can be formulated to contain specific vitamins and are ideal for the water soluble vitamins. With liquids, however, the supplement can be taken in small doses throughout the day which is preferable to one individual table dose.  

The choice of liquid vs. tablet vitamins might be a personal one, or one imposed on the 20% of the population that cannot swallow pills, but bioavailability and the natural form of the vitamins concerned should also be taken into consideration. If in doubt, you should check out a reputable vitamin supplement site online and find what recommendations are being made.

Digital Foot Scan

See yourself from a different point of view.

Sometimes, your feet seem so far away, don’t they? After all, your smiles, sneezes, winks, those holes for your ear buds, that hand bringing you your first morning sip of coffee – all of the really important stuff seems to be at or near the top of you. Your feet are, well, way down there. But now, see yourself from a different point of view.

Your feet are your foundation. They support you whenever you stand, walk, or run. Foot instability can be the cause of many postural problems throughout your body. A bad hair day isn’t going to make your feet sore, but bad feet can cause aches and pains all over. We care about your feet. Chiropractic adjustments and Foot Levelers’ custom-made Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers — a unique form of in-shoe orthotics — have helped thousands of people bring their bodies back to a natural state of alignment.

 

Who Needs Foot Levelers’ Orthotics?

Treating conditions associated with obesity with Chiropractic and Foot Care

It’s no secret that obesity is a growing problem– and according to the World Health Organization, more than 300 million people worldwide are overweight or obese. Along with other health complications associated with being overweight, such as heart disease and diabetes, the body and feet can also be negatively affected. But we can help! Chiropractic care along with the custom-made support of Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers can work to prevent and treat the conditions associated with obesity.

Extra weight applies more pressure on the feet and can cause the arches to collapse, leading to joint and back pain. The deterioration of the joints, also known as osteoarthritis, is the leading cause for knee and hip replacement surgery. These conditions can be prevented with the help of laser therapy and Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers from Foot Levelers.

Laser Therapy provides red and infrared photons to stimulate your cells and promote healing.  Swelling and inflammation are reduced and light energy is converted to biochemical energy, causing healing of damaged tendons, joints, and tissue.

Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers support all three arches of the foot and help align the feet, ankles, knees, hips and spine to provide a balanced foundation for the body. This custom-made postural support also helps to reduce back and joint pain. Stabilizers are an important adjunct to your care because they help your chiropractic adjustments hold longer, helping prolong your wellness.

When your feet and body feel better, you are more likely to be active!  It is difficult to exercise when your joints hurt.  A healthy diet and regular exercise are both important factors to help you lead a healthy lifestyle.   Along with regular adjustments, Clear Choice Chiropractic can treat your whole body to get you moving again.  Laser treatments can target osteoarthritis to reduce inflammation and pain. Health coaching can provide nutritional, dietary, and lifestyle counseling.

We can help you look good, feel good, and live your best life now!
