Episode 302: Only 40% of US Children are Flourishing??

Almost 60% of US kids are NOT flourishing??? How is that possible? The study from Johns Hopkins shows that children need to build resilience and family connections in order to flourish. Chiropractically, they also need to build health resilience by working on their brain and nerve system function, as well as ensuring the best nerve system connections so they don’t end up as a ‘disconnected kid’ (as Dr. Melillo would say). Let’s build kids resilience and connection and help them flourish! Article found here: https://www.healthaffairs.org/doi/10.1377/hlthaff.2018.05425

Episode 301: “In the beginning…”

“You never know…” can be a very accurate statement. Back in 1983 while at SUNY Albany for undergraduate, I worked in a facility for the developmentally disabled, before I even knew what my exact career choice would be, Who would have known, over 30 years later, the impact that part time college job would have on my life? Who could have predicted in 1983 that a large percent of the children I see in practice have some sort of developmental disability, and that job prepared me for my speciality in chiropractic? You never can know…

Episode 300: “What Greater Joy?”

“What greater joy” can you have than to help the kids, families, pregnant women, live better lives? Feel how amazing our lives as chiropractors are! We are so blessed to help children, adults, athletes, everybody, with just our hands! What other profession gets to do what we do, and celebrate it the way we can? Gotta love it!

Episode 299: Barcelona, Picasso and Chiropractic

Just visited the Picasso Museum in Barcelona, looking at Picasso’s 1957 interpretation of the painting Las Meninas by Velazquez (from 1656). The same scene, 2 dramatically different representations. This holds true with chiropractic. There were no complaints about either version of the painting. Nobody said one painting was ‘rubbish’. Can’t we do that in chiropractic? Can the mechanistic chiro’s and the subluxation-based chiro’s finally agree that we are all trying to help people?
