Wear patterns on shoes can be a useful—though often confusing—indication of problems with the feet. By examining wear patterns, we can understand a patient’s gait cycle and recommend the appropriate adjustments and orthotics to enhance their performance. The confusing part can be explaining why certain conditions lead to certain wear patterns. For example, it’s counterintuitive to patients to explain why their foot rolling inward can cause excessive outer heel wear.
The number of overdose deaths attributed to opioid drugs has increased dramatically for males and females both, almost tripling between the years 2002 and 2015. Even those prescribed opiates are dying at alarming rates, with our country losing around 17,000 individuals annually due to a lethal dose of doctor-prescribed opioids. These numbers are just a few which highlight the importance of helping patients alleviate their pain without the use of drugs. As a chiropractor, you can begin to achieve this goal by putting the right marketing campaigns in place. This consists of a three-step process.
PEMF stands for Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field therapy; using this particular process involves directing powerful, pulsed energy waves toward damaged or injured areas of the patient’s body. These waves painlessly and quickly pass through the cells in the damaged region, increasing the spin of the electrons contained within them as a result. It is this amplified electron spinning which restores the cell’s potential (its energy), regulating its volume at the same time. And, unlike some other forms of CAM, this positive cellular effect lasts for as many as four days after the treatment session has ended.
