Beyond podiatry, 20/20 Imaging’s product portfolio also includes solutions for the chiropractic, hand and now the veterinary markets as well.
  • Advanced, complete end-to-end imaging solutions for chiropractic practices include the cutting-edge Chiro Straight-Arm digital x-ray solution, equipped with the company’s CFPG and the industry-leading C-DR retrofit system, both enable the direct capture of images and quick display of data on computer workstations within seconds.
  • The HDR & HFP, dedicated specifically to the unique needs of the hand surgery market, were unveiled at this past October’s American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH) Annual Meeting.
  • After years as a leading provider of custom retrofit solutions for veterinary markets, the addition of the V-XRS, a multi option digital receptor turn-key x-ray system equipped with a 32kW HF APR generator, 4-way float top table and mini-PACS will further advance the digital imaging capabilities for veterinary practices.
20/20 Imaging works closely with sister company Viztek, Inc., a leading provider of complete digital software and hardware diagnostic imaging solutions, and also an RSNA exhibitor with their full portfolio of products and solutions for imaging centers and hospitals.

Top Chiropractor in Atlanta First Choice for Celebs
Press Release

ATLANTA, Oct. 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The top chiropractor in Atlanta, Dr. Jared Simon, fixes backs; but he's no ordinary chiropractor. Better known as the "chiropractor to the stars" among the Atlanta area, Dr. Simon is the first choice among both local and major celebrities when it comes to relieving back and neck ailments of all kinds. In fact, his list of star clients reads like a red carpet roll call.

Despite being widely considered the top chiropractor in Atlanta, Dr. Simon remains surprisingly modest when asked about his work with superstar Cee Lo Green, Olympian Gwen Torrence or NFL Quarterback Joe Theismann. He explains:

"I specialize in the entertainment industry, but my main concern is making sure my patients live pain-free, whether the person I'm working on is a Grammy winning artist, a teacher, an Olympian, a car mechanic, a sports legend or an accountant. It's not what they do that matters so much to me; it's how I can get them out of pain and keep them out of pain that drives how I care for them."

Despite, or perhaps because of, his down-to-earth nature, Dr. Simon is becoming a celebrity in his own right. Once word got around that the top chiropractor in Atlanta had so many high-level clients, people wanted to know more, and he has now appeared on television and radio programs as an expert on chiropractic care.
Dr. Simon not only specializes in caring for those in the entertainment industry, he is also the founder of the Atlanta Actor's Healthnet, which features physicians sharing ideas on healing back pain for those in the performing arts.

While he is laid back about his celebrity clientele, he also realizes the importance of paying attention to people's line of work and how that affects their back and neck issues. "My patients' professions definitely impact their back problems," Dr. Simon says, "from repetitive stress injuries, which can be seen among athletes, to people suffering from pain brought on by a sedentary lifestyle, what they do or don't do during the day can inform their level of back issues." Dr. Simon says he does a careful assessment of these concerns and customizes a plan for each patient, depending on their individual needs and comfort levels.

Dr. Simon has become so well-known in the Atlanta entertainment industry that he is now the go-to Atlanta chiropractor for celebrities. He is also a member of the Screen Actors Guild, making him very familiar with the special concerns of film and stage actors.

His practice, Century Center Chiropractic, is located Atlanta, Georgia. They offer state of the art equipment and a personalized approach to back pain. Each patient is thoroughly assessed and a range of treatment options is offered. Dr. Simon has been practicing chiropractic care since 1992.

Palmdale Chiropractor Helps Golfers Improve Their Game
Press Release
Written by Dewald Chiropractic   
Monday, 14 October 2013 13:42
PALMDALE, Calif., Oct. 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A Palmdale chiropractor is making use of natural healing and preventative care methods to help local golfers improve their performance and avoid injury. According to Dr. Thomas Dewald of Dewald Chiropractic, many golfers develop problems with their game due to spinal imbalances and overuse injuries that cause pain, stiffness, or less than optimal nerve function. "Chiropractic adjustments and other natural treatments can help golfers get more out of their sport and feel better doing it, while preventative wellness care can help them stay on top of their game," he says.
Dr. Dewald explains that a typical golf swing requires many of the body's joints and large muscle groups to perform perfectly under considerable stresses. He points out that the joints of the wrists, elbows, shoulders, lower back, hips, knees and ankles must have the proper freedom of motion to permit a fluid, accurate swing.

"Musculoskeletal imbalances from poor posture or an uneven gait can severely limit a golfer's swing and cause impairments to his whole game," says the practitioner. He adds that over time these imbalances can contribute to premature joint wear, disc problems and osteoarthritis that can make every swing painful and pinpoint accuracy impossible. Dr. Dewald's clinic uses chiropractic adjustments to correct such misalignments in an effort to restore their golfing patients' freedom and range of motion.

Overuse injuries account for many problems out of the golf course, according to Dr. Dewald. He describes the most common of these, a condition known as golfer's elbow, as a form of tendonitis that afflicts the connective tissues on the inside of the forearm where they attach to the elbow joint. The practitioner treats these injuries by prescribing massage therapy and other soft tissue therapies to stimulate the healing process while relieving local inflammation and pain. Physiotherapy and corrective exercises are then employed to rebuild the elbow's strength and flexibility. Dr. Dewald points out that these techniques, coupled with spinal adjustment, are also helpful in the treatment of lower back strain, another common complaint among golfers.

Once a golfer's immediate recovery has been affected, the chiropractor usually recommends ongoing wellness practices to help prevent future bouts of sports-related injuries. Patients may receive a customized exercise program to help maintain proper muscular support and flexibility, enabling better performance on the golf course.

"We can help players understand how a fault in their technique may be causing pain or performance limitations, and we can also show players how to warm up before a round so they can play their best game without hurting themselves," Dr. Dewald says.

In addition to treatment and wellness care for golfers and other sports enthusiasts, Dewald Chiropractic provides spinal adjustment, nutritional counseling, massage therapy and other healing modalities for a wide range of injuries, illnesses and chronic pain syndromes.

Stay Fit Seniors®: As U.S. ‘Health Crisis’ Worsens, Life-Changing New Book Empowers Seniors to Exercise, Eat Well & Prosper
Press Release

Friday, 11 October 2013 00:21
Following the acclaimed success of The Stay Fit Circuit Physical Activity Wellness Programs™, Drs. Roger A. Russo and Anthony Lauro are today announcing a powerful new book that will help motivate any senior and baby boomer keep fit, better their diet and avoid life-threatening diabetes, obesity and heart disease. With America’s healthcare system more costly than ever before, purchasing a copy of ‘Stay Fit Seniors: Saving Seniors, Baby Boomers and America’s Healthcare Costs’ could literally save readers’ lives.
stayfitseniorsbookNew York City, NY – It’s a shocking yet unsurprising fact; the United States spends more of its GDP on healthcare than any other nation in the world. While millions turn to the Government for answers, New York’s Dr. Roger A. Russo and Dr. Anthony Lauro are urging Americans, especially seniors, to point their fingers back at themselves and take responsibility for their poor lifestyle choices. In a bold effort to help older Americans improve their health, longevity and ultimately their country’s healthcare system, Russo and Lauro have released a compelling new book.
Stay Fit Seniors: Saving Seniors, Baby Boomers and America’s Healthcare Costs’ is the latest addition to the duo’s famed Stay Fit Seniors® brand.
Stay Fit seniors® delves into the sad truth about America’s costly healthcare system. You will learn why and how the company came to be, how to be a Stay Fit Senior and why it’s essential to be proactive in your health by creating a healthcare team that starts with you.
As Dr. Russo explains, the book is the culmination of over a decade’s work.
“Eleven years ago I noticed that, while my parents benefited from Chiropractic and medical care, their lack of physical exercise caused further pain and health decline. This drove me to install and create a sophisticated circuit training program into my office for their use. After noticing overwhelming success, I partnered with Dr. Lauro to offer it to his patients, too. With increasing demand for our program, we both founded Stay Fit Seniors Inc. in 2006 and now offer our Stay Fit Circuit Physical Activity Wellness Programs™ to thousands of seniors and baby boomers across the country” he says.
Dr. Lauro states, “This book condenses all we offer and takes it into the hands of anyone willing to read it. Within the pages, readers will discover powerful and easy-to-implement life changes that will help them avoid disease, live longer and reduce their burden on our healthcare system.”
Chapters cover a myriad of topics including an exposé of U.S. healthcare, nutrition and vitamins needed for optimum health, in-depth analysis of popular supplements, why senior health is a shared responsibility and much, much more.
Dr. Russo believes that the book has wide and far-reaching appeal.
seniors“It should be a priority read for seniors, baby boomers, caretakers, potential caretakers, healthcare professionals and even insurance companies who want to increase health and lower costs. Its part investigative-style overview of the U.S. healthcare system and part self-help book; the only title of its kind currently on the market,” he adds.

In previous years, fitness legend Jack LaLanne’s family spoke highly of Russo and Lauro’s passion and dedication to getting their message out to seniors from coast to coast.

Elaine LaLanne was previously quoted as saying, “Jack LaLanne always stressed ‘Life is great when you’re in shape.’ That statement is as true today as it was when he coined it over 60 years ago. Drs. Russo and Lauro have advocated his philosophy through their Stay Fit Seniors® Program. Both Jack and I applauded their efforts in the past and I want to wish them continued success.”
‘Stay Fit Seniors: Saving Seniors, Baby Boomers and America’s Healthcare Costs’ is due for imminent release and will be available through the book’s official webpage (launching soon):
