From the Director’s Desk

As a chiropractor, patients of all shapes and sizes walk in to your clinic. There are some chiropractors that have found a whole niche in the market of obesity. We’ve included many authors here, within our pages, to give you the edge in your pursuit of the most effective and efficient way of controlling your patients’ problems.

This illness is absolutely devastating, and the incidence has been exploding across the nation. Obesity increases the risk for acquiring a wide array of diseases, particularly heart disease, type II diabetes, sleep apnea, certain types of cancer, and osteoarthritis. Those, subsequently, increase the likelihood of other ailments. The payoff will most definitely be realized in the implementation of some form of a weight control plan within your clinic. If that’s not what interests you, no worries, there’s plenty for you to digest in between the feature articles, including Dr. Yochum’s landmark article on page 14, regarding early diagnosis of spondylolysis.

On another note, a new development for you to be aware of is the electronic version of The American Chiropractor Magazine. Next time you’re at your computer, check us out online at to view the e-zine. There’s streaming video, content and sound.

That’s all for now, like I always say, cover to cover!
