  DC Canada Goes Digital   
By Editorial Staff
The digital age brings new opportunities to be more effective and environmentally friendly. Dynamic Chiropractic Canada is proud to announce we are going completely digital beginning with the January 2015 issue. Every year, demand for the paper used in books and newspapers requires the harvest of 125 million trees. Their production emits more than 40 million metric tons of CO2 annually. Switching to app and digital reading eliminates the need for paper and ink, reducing the impact on our environment.
 
 
 
Help patients get their bodies to "grow" with age.
By Jeffrey Tucker, DC, DACRB
I've noticed that a particular category of patients seems to make up more and more of my practice – they work out, but still experience lots of degenerative joint disease (DJD) issues. These are patients in their 40s, 50s and 60s who make one or two of these exercise choices: walking, Pilates, yoga, boot camps, swimming, "spinning," jogging, weight training, elliptical training, etc.
  
Are your patients getting enough? Why it matters and how you can help.

Over the past 25 to 30 years, studies have suggested calcium may confer protection against colorectal cancer. Animal studies have shown this effect, and many epidemiological studies have shown a strong correlation between higher calcium intake and lower incidence of colorectal cancer.

In general, fractures in children heal well with little intervention as long as the alignment is good. Fractures involving the growth plate, however, are a different issue. In fact, growth-plate injuries are the primary reason for the subspecialty of pediatric orthopedics.

If your social media outreach is not producing the healthy results you expected, perhaps it's time for a social media adjustment. Almost 90 percent of the social media pages I see suffer from what I like to call "social misalignments." The message just isn't connecting with the prospective audience or is so bland that it has very little relevance.

Participation in sports is a huge part of life in the United States. The number of runners alone has skyrocketed over the past 15 to 20 years. In 2012, 15.5 million people finished a road race, compared to only 5.2 million finishers in 1991.

Low-level laser therapy (LLLT), also referred to as photobiomodulation, has been increasingly utilized in the clinical setting over the past decade. Although laser technology has been around for some time, improved clinical outcomes have led providers to discover and implement laser therapy into their practices.

The gluteus medius (Gmed) is commonly written about, strengthened and blamed for many conditions, and rightfully so. After all, the Gmed plays a role in pelvic stability, hip motor control and lower-quarter dynamic movements. This muscle stabilizes the pelvis and lumbar spine, and can move the hip in abduction, internal rotation, external rotation, extension and even flexion.
By Anthony DeLuca, DC, CCSP
Treating soft-tissue injuries with long-lasting results starts the moment an individual enters the office. When it comes to pain, the only thing that matters to the patient is relief. History and strong referrals may buy some added time, but don't expect a person to stick around if the proper levels of professionalism, courtesy and expertise are not repeatedly delivered by doctor and staff throughout each entire session and beyond.
