Sports Medicine Insights Understand - Rehabilitate - Prevent

Help patients prevent low back pain through exercise programming. The economic impact of low back pain (LBP) is greater than $100 billion per year and causes more disability globally than any other condition.1,2 It is the most common cause of activity limitation in adults age 45 and younger, and only second to arthritis in people age 45 to 65.3


A CA's Path to Professional Development

Being a chiropractic assistant is a career. As a CA, you are an educated and trained professional, responsible for the many tasks assigned to your job description. No different than an insurance agent, real estate agent, and multitudes of other professions, it is critical that CAs be diligent and proactive in their efforts to improve their craft and stay up to date with industry standards and guidelines.

Methods for Staying Present with Patients

If you're like most of us, your day-to-day work life slips by almost unconsciously. You arrive at work, and before you know it, you are driving home again, with little to no memory of what encompassed your last eight hours. This interesting phenomenon affects many of us, and research shows that people spend 47% of their waking hours distracted from what they are trying to do.

The Work of Enzymes

Food enzymes are becoming a new buzzword in health and wellness. However, not many people really understand what they do in the body, or that there is a difference between plant and animal enzymes. Say you want to build a house and you have all of the raw materials you need to build it sitting in a big pile.
