Why Your Medical Doctor Loves your Chiropractic Doctor..

Date: October 10, 2017 | Time: 9:37am | Posted By: Randall Moore DC

To some, this title, may sound inconsistent with stories they hear. Myself coming from a family that was not Chiropractically-aligned, I find this title not so much "provocative" as it is actually "true." This context of thought comes with 16 years of practice experience, literally coming from a childhood instilled with thinking that Chiropractors were quacks, etc, to being the Primary Health Care Provider for many of my patients as a Chiropractic Doctor.Since Chiropractic's inception in 1895, there.... <view entire article>

Chiropractic for our Nation's Heroes..

Date: October 26, 2015 | Time: 9:41am | Posted By: Randall Moore DC

How do we properly "serve" those that have served us with such devotion? The United States spends more on Military and Defense than any other country, and you only need see one "person" in uniform to see a small cog in a very large machine that we call our Military complex. As a society, then shall we be defined partially by how well we take care of those that have sacrificed so much as an individual for our country as.... <view entire article>

How Important is the "Placebo Effect" in Health Care? Proposing Questions for a Paradigm Change. ..

Technical Definition: ef.fectnounnoun: placebo effect; plural noun: placebo effectsa beneficial effect, produced by a placebo drug or treatment, that cannot be attributed to the properties of the placebo itself, and must therefore be due to the patient's belief in that treatment.Why is the "Placebo Effect" important in Healthcare? It has to do with a very seemingly difficult part of healthcare that is largely left out of patient care, yet has provable tremendous effects on the outcome.... <view entire article>

3 Times a Week for the rest of your life..

Date: August 26, 2013 | Time: 11:56am | Posted By: Randall Moore DC

It is obvious that this particular post is in regard to a myth that many people espouse regarding Chiropractic Care. First of all.........Yes, I still hear this from those that are poking fun, Second...........I myself actually grew up with this same fun-poking, uneducated belief system. Personally, it has been a long journey for me to become a Chiropractor being that I was raised with this attitude and considering my undergraduate studies in programs such as Pre Medicine and Physics.

Dr Oz ( and many MDs) on Chiropractic..

Date: February 11, 2013 | Time: 12:29pm | Posted By: Randall Moore DC

On Friday I had a patient ask me why Chiropractic Care was on the Dr Oz show and how MDs feel about Chiropractic. The simple answer would be because "it works!" . On the other hand, these are really two very different questions and the answer is always dependent upon the perspective of the one answering as we well as asking the question. This BLOG is because my patient was somewhat shocked at my answer."Chiropractic carries.... <view entire article>

Affordable Healthcare OR Affordable Insurance??..

Date: January 16, 2013 | Time: 5:37pm | Posted By: Randall Moore DC

Let's propose something thought-provoking with regards to the "Affordable Healthcare Act" for just a moment! To begin with, this is not a simple "for" or "against" universal healthcare blog, rather it is regarding the "concepts" of what it might mean to have real healthcare coverage.Please understand, that if there hypothetically were aliens in space watching humanity, and how we "care" for each other, well..............there would be some frowns. We need a system that ensures better "care" for everyone. Everyone.... <view entire article>

Obese 2Bvs 2BNormalObesity

Date: April 10, 2012 | Time: 9:36am | Posted By: Randall Moore DC

Obese vs. "Normal" individual Obesity is a grave problem in our American society. Note that it isn't just a "problem" on the outside appearance, it is also a tremendous problem on the "inside." This is a large topic that we could spend a lot of time on, however please note the amount of "fat" surrounding the internal organs and heart. Think that could contribute to high blood pressure, lack of breath, and poor digestion? And that is just the mechanical.... <view entire article>

My 2BSignature 2BRB 2BMoore 2BDCDoes Auto Insurance Cover Chiropractic?..

Date: April 9, 2012 | Time: 4:02pm | Posted By: Randall Moore DC

This is a question we hear often. The simple answer is "yes." If you are involved in an auto accident, you should always make certain that you are evaluated by the healthcare provider of your choice so as to avoid any future pit-falls of not doing so at or near the time of injury. This is due to the fact that many injuries can be non-symptomatic for a few months to a few years depending upon the dynamic of the.... <view entire article>

Keep Healthcare a CHOICE!..

It's that time of year again. Be prepared to hear the push for your annual FLU Vaccine. This particular Blog isn't about really whether you agree with them or not. This is strictly about choice.I am concerned as a parent as well as a professional in healthcare that there are so many attempts lately to DISCOURAGE freedom of choice. California is/ has proposed vaccinating children as young as 12 with ALL current and future vaccinations WITHOUT NOTIFYING PARENTS. That's right,.... <view entire article>

With the onset of Spring, there are pollens in the air. With that, every health care practitioners office is filled with allergy sufferers................but have we thought about the Pediatric patient? We also tend to see a surgence in EAR INFECTIONS at this time as well.I am reminded by this while having a conversation with by daughters Principal about her own child's ear infections. She asked about Chiro Care and Ear infections. As far as symptomatic care goes, often times ear.... <view entire article>

Remarkably the address has not changed.....wierd we know, however we were able to change things with the city so as to not change everything simply because of a "suite number change." Plus..........can anyone guess how difficult it is to change anything with insurance companies or MEDICARE????? So, we are greatful and the place has a great feel,.... <view entire article>

September is "Chiropractic Awareness Month"..

Date: August 26, 2010 | Time: 11:10am | Posted By: Randall Moore DC

September is Chiropractic Awareness Month! September is an important date to all Chiropractors as this month in 1895 is when the "birth" of Chiropractic was.The first "Chiropractic" adjustment was given to a man in Davenport, IA by the name of Harvey Lillard who was the janitor of a Doctor named DD Palmer. Mr Lillard was deaf, well mostly, and upon examinination, Dr Palmer found no physiological problem with his ears, however found his spine to have been "misaligned" just inbetween.... <view entire article>

Car Accidents - Some Things To Consider..

Date: August 23, 2010 | Time: 11:56am | Posted By: Randall Moore DC

Just had another Car Accident Patient come in the door. Unfortunate to see people just after an accident more worried about costs than anything else. Of course, your HEALTH is what comes FIRST! So yes, you should always get checked out! I don't mean by the Hospital necessarily, however auto accidents slower than 10 MPH..................yes 10MPH have been documented to elicite some damage to the body, which makes sense once you even consier how much a car weighs vs. your.... <view entire article>

Ear Infections..

I had a 2 year old come in to me a week ago on his 6th course of antibiotics due to recurrent ear infections. The mother quizically asked me how Chiropractic could possible help with ear infections since she knows that I see a lot of children.A question tendered this way tells me that unfortunatly like all too many parents out there, that they don't readily consider Chiropractic for their kids health because they see it as a painrelie tool..... <view entire article>
