Chiropractic Physician

Posted by ericksonchiro on April 30, 2010 at 10:17 AM Comments comments (16)

Many of my patient's are a little shocked when I talk to them about doing blood draws or having labratory tests run.  In the state of WI chiropractors are not simply "back" doctors.  I deal with a lot of conditions in my practice many that would seemingly have nothing to do with the back.  Our licensing in the state of WI clearly allows us to do blood draws for diagnostic purposes.  In some cases it is absolutely essential in getting a clearer clinical picture, espescially...

A couple of recent studies have demonstrated some concerns when trying to control cholesterol levels. We need both HDL and LDL cholesterol in our bodies it is essential to human life. It is found in all cell membranes and forms many of the chemical messengers(hormones) that are utilized by our bodies. In general high cholesterol does not cause symptoms and has become a drug that is easily prescribed with little to no concern for actual need. In fact some pharmaceutical companie...

Why Life is Motion?

Posted by ericksonchiro on October 26, 2009 at 12:24 PM Comments comments (1)

Recently I had someone ask me why we use the slogan Life is Motion at our Chiropractic clinic.  I had to think about this for a while, coming from a patient's viewpoint.  To me as a Chiropractor it is quite clear what it means, but I feel that I need to do a better job of explaining this to patients.  Life is motion.  Why?  I remember in one of the first natural science classes that I had in school, way back in the middle school days, we were taught that life had cert...

Shoo the Flu

Posted by ericksonchiro on September 30, 2009 at 6:22 PM Comments comments (0)

We are constantly being bombarded with news about the flu.  We are even being told that we should avoid handshakes.  Maybe we should just wrap ourselves in isolation bubbles and eleminate all direct contact with other human beings.  To me this is simply fear driven marketing.  Realistically the flu is a rather benign infection.  People rarely die from the flu.  The CDC says that approximately 36000 die annually from seasonal flu. The cdc has only 593 confirmed de...

Why Chiropractic?

This is a question that many of us have thankfully allready answered, but for those who haven't I would like to tell you how I decided my answer.  When I started undergrad I, like many others, had no idea what I was going to do with the rest of my life.  I have always felt compassion for the human condition and I knew that I wanted to help.  I just didn't know in what form that would be.  I thought about some of the different professions that help to alleviate hu...

Consumer Reports Survey

Posted by ericksonchiro on April 7, 2009 at 10:50 AM Comments comments (0)

A recent Survey performed by consumer reports helped to reiterate what chiropractors have known for years.  Chiropractic is the best and should be the first option for low back pain.  In a survey of 14,000 U.S. consumers Chiropractic was voted number one in treating low back pain.  These same consumers also pointed out that they were far more likely to be satisfied by seeing a chiropractor (59%) then seeing their primary care physician (34%).  With something like 80% ...
