Chiropractic Profession Unites in Washington, D.C. to Advocate for Patients
Saturday, March 14, 2015 04:12 PM

Members of the chiropractic profession from across the nation gathered in Washington, D.C. and later met with congressional leaders to stress the importance of chiropractic's role in national health care and Medicare reform. The group convened as part of the 2015 National Chiropractic Leadership Conference (NCLC), which took place February 25 - 28.

Nearly 700 chiropractic physicians, students and supporters converged on the nation's capital to hear speeches from government leaders, receive advocacy training and urge elected officials to support pro-chiropractic measures that would benefit patients, expand access to chiropractic services for veterans and active-duty military personnel, and help chiropractic graduates qualify for federal programs that would enable them to practice in underserved areas in exchange for student loan debt relief.

Top-seeded basketball team Gonzaga University, looking more like the dominant team from earlier this season.  GU player Kyle Wiltjer returned from a hip injury to deliver 17 points and nine rebounds and the seventh-ranked Zags unleashed their running game to full effect.

Wiltjer didn’t return to play after an awkward fall. He started slowly with just three first-half points.  “He’s coming along; he’s toughening up,” GU coach Mark Few said. “We had some great efforts out of our docs. Kelli Pearson, our team chiropractor, flew down and treated him Sunday and that made a huge difference in his recovery.”

Lighting the Way in Primary Care

In 1990, an organizer with Save the Children went to Vietnam to help fight malnutrition. The government told him, "You have 6 months to make a difference."  Undaunted, the organizer went to rural villages and asked local mothers to help him weigh every child in the village. He visited poor families with well-nourished kids and learned what those successful mothers were doing. Then he worked with the high-performing mothers to spread their practices to families with malnourished children.  The organizer's improvement strategy was to find the "bright spots" -- i.e., the mothers who were successfully feeding their children regardless of their economic status -- learn from them, and let the bright spots illuminate the dark corners.

Old Horses: Massage and Acupuncture and Chiropractic

It's not uncommon in performance horse barns to see veterinarians, massage therapists, chiropractors, and other equine professionals in and out on a regular basis. After all, if we're asking a horse to perform athletic feats, the least we can do is ensure his body is in peak physical condition.

But perhaps less common is calling one of those complementary therapists out to see the semi-retired senior horse who packs the grandkids around or the fully retired show horse who's enjoying his days in a grassy pasture. They might not be jumping the moon or sliding to a stop during a reining pattern, but these senior citizens might still benefit from some complementary therapies.
