Always take action: “There is only one way to learn. It’s through action.” You can study, read, and listen until you turn blue in the face, but the full experience is when you take action, and let the rubber meet the road. Once you’re done aiming, pull the trigger. Paulo Coelho


Greedy, corrupt doctors took in more than $40 million in illegal kickbacks to prey on patients who had back pain. The doctors targeted people who had back problems from work-related injuries. Once the patients were convinced they needed spinal surgery, they were given the surgery and implanted with counterfeit spinal hardware. The scheme has netted approximately $950 million over fifteen years.  California Senator Ron Calderon was convicted of accepting bribes for convincing the California legislature to allow the corrupt doctors to receive reimbursements for performing the counterfeit spinal hardware surgeries. Hundreds of patients have been abused by this scheme and there are thousands more who do not know if they have been victimized. To find out, surgeons would have to remove the hardware from patients’ spines. Counterfeit hardware could cause infections, break down, and emit toxins. According to whistle blowers who worked with federal authorities, corrupt physicians sought kickbacks like Super Bowl tickets, airfare, and hotel stays after they would convince a patient to undergo a needless surgery. The surgeries left most patients in severe pain, pain they should have never had to endure. To prevent being a victim to corrupt doctors, always seek a second, third, or perhaps a fourth medical opinion.

There is a growing body of evidence that wellness care provided by doctors of chiropractic may reduce health care costs, improve health behaviors, and enhance patient perceived quality of life. Until recently, however, little was known about how chiropractic adjustments affected the chemistry of biological processes on a cellular level. In a landmark study published in the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research (JVSR), chiropractors collaborating with researchers at the Univ. of Lund, Sweden found that chiropractic care could influence basic physiological processes affecting oxidative stress and DNA repair. These findings offer a scientific explanation for the positive health benefits reported by patients receiving chiropractic care. Who do you know who could benefit from chiropractic care?
