October 2, 2012 (Roanoke, VA)—Foot Levelers surprised participants at their 60th Anniversary Seminar that took place on September 22-23 in Minneapolis, Minn., with a 1/2 –karat diamond giveaway. The diamond is brilliant round cut and is retail valued at over $2,000.

The lucky diamond winner is Dr. Christine Ingbretson from Ham Lake, Minn., and owns Andover Ham Lake Chiropractic. “I was so excited to win the diamond! It will make a gorgeous necklace,” Dr. Ingbretson said. “The diamond was a huge bonus, as I had already received so much great knowledge from the seminar.”

Foot Levelers wanted to do something special for attendees and show their gratitude for the support over the past 60 years. “We did a diamond give-away to celebrate our diamond jubilee,” said Brietta Cunningham, Director of Marketing at Foot Levelers. “However, more importantly we wanted to do something special for attendees who have supported Foot Levelers and make our 60th anniversary seminar as memorable as possible for them.”

This seminar marked the first of Foot Levelers’ 60th Anniversary seminar series. There are two more 60th Anniversary seminars taking place in Chicago, Ill., Nov. 17-18, and in Newark, N.J., Dec. 1-2.

San Diego, CA – Oct 1, 2012 – ChiroTouch™, the nation’s leader in chiropractic software, and the Chiropractic Leadership Alliance, a visionary leader in the chiropractic technologies industry, are pleased to present the Simplify Chiropractic Technology Symposium. This first-of-its-kind technology, one-day conference is designed to provide chiropractors with a clear road map to integrating all-empowering technologies into the practice, and takes place in Chicago, IL, on November 10, 2012.

“ChiroTouch and the CLA recognized a significant need within the chiropractic community to learn how to fully capitalize on available technology, and we’re thrilled to be able to address that need though this groundbreaking Symposium,” said Robert Moberg, President of ChiroTouch. “Attendees will learn how to fully integrate innovative and efficient technologies in order to simplify their practices, giving them more time to spend on both their patients and practice.”

The landscape of hardware and software technology has evolved from tools used to accomplish a specific set of tasks to fully integrated digital systems that play a critical role in improving patient care, increasing practice efficiencies, and connecting the patient, the practice, and the provider. And while the power of technology has made the complex simple, how it’s implemented in the practice environment is just as important as the technology itself.

Just a few of the topics being presented at the Simplicity Symposium include:

·       The pros and cons of Premise Server versus Cloud Solutions
·       How the transition to mobility is effecting software applications
·       The Business of Wellness: integrated clinical and office systems that position your practice as a perpetual profit center
·       Best practices in mobility: iPad/iPhone, Microsoft Surface, Android
·       When every patient's Critical Shift occurs, allowing them to commit to the full scope of chiropractic care
·       Compliance in a digital environment
·       How to use technology to empower your practice, improve care, and increase profits

“The Symposium will connect attendees with the most powerful technology available in the industry and show them how using the right technology in the right way for the right purpose can create immeasurable efficiencies in their practices," added Robert.

Tickets are just $49.00, and include one free guest pass.

About Foot Levelers
Foot Levelers, world’s leading provider of custom-made orthotics, has been serving the chiropractic profession for 60 years. Foot Levelers specializes in products that are designed to improve the quality of life. The company’s goal is to focus on whole body wellness from the ground up. Sixty years ago, Dr. Monte Greenawalt invented orthotics to balance the body by balancing the feet, thereby enhancing his patients’ structural integrity. Stabilizing Orthotics provide structural support, yet allow the feet to retain a full range of motion.

Throughout its history of ever-increasing success, the company has had a positive influence on nearly every facet of chiropractic: patient wellness and instruction; public awareness of the benefits of chiropractic care; philanthropic donations to numerous chiropractic colleges and research foundations; and substantial financial support to local, state, and national chiropractic associations. Now, in its sixth decade of commitment, support, and results, Foot Levelers is a living testament to the faith, vision, hard work, and generosity of its founder, Monte H. Greenawalt, DC, DABCO, and his son and current CEO, Kent S. Greenawalt.

Doctored - The Movie
User Rating: / 9
Press Release
Written by Gilles A. LaMarche BS, DC   
Thursday, 20 September 2012 14:02
The premiere of "Doctored - The Movie", by producer Jeff Hays, will take place in New York City on September 21, 2012, in Los Angeles, September 26, and in Chicago, Atlanta, and Dallas September 28. The film will also be screened at those same theaters for one week following the premieres. Between September 5 and 15, a director's cut of the movie was viewed by more than 1,500 chiropractors from San Diego to New York City, and their comments have been nothing short of impressive .

A few years ago I began sharing a dream from the platform at chiropractic conferences: "I have a dream that within this decade chiropractors will be recognized as the go-to health experts around the world."  As the chiropractic envoy for this movie I have had the honor of viewing the director's cut more than 10 times, and I now know that my dream will become a reality, probably much earlier than expected. This movie is a must for every DC to view and share with their community. The impact of this message will change the face of healthcare in America. One of the DC attendees in San Diego wrote a truly touching testimonial  and shared it with colleagues on social media. One of his statements is:  "I am proud to be a chiropractor and proud of Producer Jeff Hays for taking on 'our story'. This is a PERFECT springboard and opportunity to once again tell our story to the public, only this time it is coming from a third party."

Danny Gambino DC

Anthony Ebel DC stated: "Every mother who views this movie will be deeply touched and know that their children are in good hands with chiropractic. Every DC needs to get these personalized DVDs and share them with their community, even if they just stand in a grocery store and give them away. Doctored will deliver. When moms see this film, they will do the most important thing we could ever ask of them - ask questions. Chiropractors hold the answers."
Many health experts across the professions were interviewed for Doctored; chiropractors, naturopaths, physicians, osteopaths, medical scientists, former drug reps. Everyone interviewed agreed that there are serious issues and that the healthcare system in America is broken.  Chiropractor and scientist Dr. James Chestnut stated: "There has been a deliberate and sustained effort by allopathic medicine and Big Pharma to label any intervention other than drugs, surgery and radiation as unscientific quackery. Doctored- The Movie exposes this truth effectively."  

Doctored effectively shares these messages with one goal in mind - to change a system and lead the American public to healthier lives, to help the public understand that they have options for healthy living. In the opinion of many health experts including Patrick Gentempo DC, "The documentary Doctored - The Movie, like chiropractic, started as a great idea based on truth and has now morphed into a true force of nature."

In my opinion every chiropractor must support the distribution of this movie, stand up and be counted. Either we stand for something or we fall for everything. Jeff Hays and his team at Jeff Hays Films with their passion and amazing talent have succeeded in revealing the truth about healthcare in America, and achieve what no one in the world has yet been able to do - telling the story with accuracy, passion and ultimate truth.
