Over the past couple of years, the decompression market has gone from being one of the most scorching markets in the profession, to a virtual non-participator.  With the problems that many spinal decompression companies have been having, financially and legally, the question remains to be answered, “What is wrong with the spinal decompression market?"

As discussion over the government's HITECH Act, EHRs, and documentation standards peaks, a new opportunity is reaching out to chiropractors, that
offers us a chance to streamline our care and unite our efforts while easing the cost of providing care. With strong encouragement towards an electronic network of communication, we can look towards a future of health care built upon shared knowledge and a collected community of combined information, helping to advance the treatment capabilities of all practitioners everywhere.

knoximagecombo1.jpgNo alarm clock, no office to go to, I wake up. Isn’t there something I should be doing?

I think, What am I going to do? I’m old, not dead. Why did I retire?

We all face it or die first. My father faced it. My grandfather faced it. What did Grandpa do?

It goes off in his head like a fire cracker, not a big one, a cherry bomb; a little one, maybe a sparkler spitting burning white bits in front of his eyes, he thought, I’ll teach her to cook!

Speaking to my Grandmother, he said, "Addie, have you ever tried fixing—."


Family history didn’t record any of his recipes, if any were ever prepared or eaten. Grandma raised seven kids, ran their farm while he was working as a brick layer, and did all the cooking  for more than 50 years when he got this idea. 

Reactive Oxygen Species, Mitochondrial Dysfunction Disease, and Aging

As a functional medicine practitioner and instructor, my fundamental belief of how dysfunction and disease can be prevented is the basis of care that I provide to my patients and the passion that drives my lectures. My most recent research, of which I am sharing here, involved the relationship between ROS, mitochondrial dysfunction, and aging.

The primary role of the mitochondria is to generate energy in the form of ATP. The electron transport chain (respiratory chain) and oxidative phosphorylation are the pathways in which energy is produced. These reactions occur along the inner mitochondria. During the transfer of electrons from one complex to another, electrons can escape, producing reactive oxygen species (ROS). A high level of ROS and a low level of antioxidants result in oxidative stress, which cause damage to the mitochondria and surrounding tissue.

Getting Ahead…By Giving Back

An Industry Leader Puts His Company’s Focus on Giving Back to the Chiropractic Community.

http://www.theamericanchiropractor.com/images/Mobergissue7.jpgIt’s Monday morning and the sun has yet to reveal itself when the office lights at Integrated Practice Solutions (IPS), maker of practice management software ChiroTouch, flicker on.

As Robert Moberg stands in his office, looking over his desk, he contemplates the day that lies before him. Soon the staff will arrive and the hallways, cubes, and offices will spring to life. But, for now, there is a quiet moment. And, before reviewing the company financials, sales reports and the like as most Presidents would do first thing on a Monday morning, he, instead, consults a rather unique folder: One that is filled with ideas, concepts, and plans—not restructuring or streamlining operations—but for giving back to the chiropractic community. It has, in fact, become his hallmark.

Robert has launched many endeavors in the spirit of giving back, from providing the industry with information-based webinars, to donating funds to state chiropractic associations, to helping chiropractors avoid the traps of digital documentation—regardless of the software system they’re using.

"Prior to taking on the job of running Integrated Practice Solutions, I had a meeting with the owners," said Robert. "I had to make it clear how important it was to me, personally, that we, as a company, focus as much on giving back to the community we serve as we do in creating the premier software platform in the industry. And they whole-heartedly agreed."

And with that agreement in hand, Robert wasted no time in finding unique, yet critical ways to enrich the chiropractic community. He found his first opportunity to give back through informational webinars.
