What a Sensational Eye Catching Headline, don’t you think?  According to a study recently published in the March 11, 2009 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, misdiagnosis accounts for 40,000 to 80,000 deaths PER YEAR.  misdiagnosis accounts for 40,000 to 80,000 deaths PER YEAR. And tort claims for diagnostic errors – defined as diagnoses that are missed, wrong, or delayed, are nearly twice as common as common claims for medication errors.

more proof that moderate red wine consumption is healthy. Red wine contains nutrients called polyphenols. For the past several years there have been reports about the health benefits of drinking red wine.  Here is more proof that moderate red wine consumption is healthy. Red wine contains nutrients called polyphenols.  And while some health conscious people take nutritional supplements to get these grape compounds, recent research is showing that the best way to get these nutrients is to drink red wine. The reason for this is red wine contains the entire group of polyphenol nutrients, a group that has been shown to work much better synergistically.  Nutritional supplements on the other hand do not contain the entire group of polyphenols. One cool thing to know is that new research from the University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine is showing...

Adjusting Instrument Research part 5: Impulse VS Activator

Posted by on Dec 9, 2016 in Blog, instrument adjusting, research | Comments Off on Adjusting Instrument Research part 5: Impulse VS Activator

The forces and time profile of the electromechanical devices resulted in a more uniform and greater energy dynamic frequency response in comparison to the spring-loaded mechanical adjusting instruments. #electromechanical #impulse #adjusting #instrument has better force time #acceleration than the… Click To Tweet OBJECTIVE: To quantify the force-time and force-delivery characteristics of six commonly used handheld chiropractic adjusting devices. METHODS: Four spring-loaded instruments, the Activator Adjusting Instrument; Activator II Adjusting Instrument, Activator III Adjusting Instrument, and Activator IV Adjusting Instrument, and two electromechanical devices, the Harrison Handheld Adjusting Instrument and Neuromechanical Impulse Adjusting Instrument, were applied to a dynamic load cell. A total of 10 force-time histories were obtained at each of three force excursion settings (minimum to maximum) for each of the six adjusting instruments at preload of approximately 20 N. RESULTS: The minimum-to-maximum force excursion settings for the...
